It's been announced that Country Girls and Juice=Juice member Yanagawa Nanami will be graduating from Hello! Project in March of next year.
Yanagawa commented, "In this past year, I have begun thinking more and more about my future and current activities. After taking a good look at myself, I realized that I need to take a step back from being an 'idol' and grow more as 'Yanagawa Nanami.' In order to do that, I felt that I need to go to college. I will study hard to find a new dream and move toward that field."
She continued, "Since I was young, I loved singing and dancing. The time I spent as a member of Hello! Project, and everyone I met, they are all my treasures. Although I don't have much time left, I will do my best until graduation to repay everyone who has supported me."
More details on Yanagawa's graduation will be announced via Hello! Project's official website.
