Kawashima Umika to graduate from 9nine in July

9nine, Kawashima Umika

9nine's Kawashima Umika have announced her graduation from the group. 

This announcement was made on April 6 during 9nine's one-man live "9nine LIVE 2016 Sakura Cloud9" at Zepp DiverCity TOKYO. Kawashima explained, "After our live at Nippon Budokan two years ago, I gained a sense of accomplishment and seriously started thinking about my future. Even if I continue both my individual activities and my activities in 9nine, the fact is that I will be halfway about things. As an actress, I am still inexperienced, and I don't have much confidence in myself. I thought that I shouldn't remain this way. I thought about what I want to do most, and that is acting. I am anxious, but I want to move forward utilizing what I gained in 9nine. I am very thankful for everyone who have supported me until now. I will do my best so that you will continue to support me.

During this live, it was also announced that 9nine will release their new single "Ai Ai Ai" on May 3. They are also scheduled to tour Nagoya, Osaka, and Tokyo. This will be Kawashima's last tour with the finale on July 23 at Nakano Sun Plaza Hall being her graduation concert.
