On May 4th, Morning Musume's Mitsui Aika appeared at the Nakano performance of the group's concert tour, 'Morning Musume Concert Tour 2012 Spring ~Ultra Smart~', where she sent out a message to her fans regarding her graduation.
As she walked on stage, Mitsui was warmly welcomed by the fans, which brought tears to her eyes before she could say anything. After wiping the tears, she commented, "This past year, I've received all kinds of treatments. Because of that, I was told that I've recovered almost completely without any difficulties in my everyday life. I was happy, but I was also told that if I continue with vigorous exercises, there are possibilities that it would return. After many discussions with Tsunku?-san and people from the company, this was my decision."
Mitsui continued, "Until now, I was on the side that would see off Niigaki-san, but after this decision, I will be graduating with her. I will give my best performance until my final day, May 18th, so everyone, please support me. Also, I will give my best performance today, so please support me."
Meanwhile, fellow member Niigaki Risa, who will also be graduating on May 18th, expressed, "The 12 of us plan on running at full speed until the very end, so please support us."
Additionally, it was revealed that 'Morning Musume Concert Tour 2012 Spring ~Ultra Smart~ Niigaki Risa Graduation Special' will be screened in 12 movie theaters nationwide. Tickets are currently on sale via Ticket Pia.
