Last year over 50 graduated.  There are just too many girls and so few opportunities for advancement that they just decide to move on.  You could make a legitimate group with the 50+ that graduated.

Saw it coming for them both. Neither participated in the election. Seera's graduating to focus on gravure modeling, but I have no clue why Manatsu decided to leave. She's always been so happy about being an idol. I'll miss them both. :(
