The dates and venues for Miyamoto Karin (Juice=Juice) and Funaki Musubu's (ANGERME) graduation concerts have been announced.
Miyamoto and Funaki were originally scheduled to graduate from the group as well as Hello! Project back in June. However their graduation concert was postponed as Hello! Project's concert that was supposed to be held that same month was cancelled due to COVID-19. Funaki's graduation concert 'ANGERME Concert 2020 ~Kisho Tenketsu~ Funaki Musubu Sotsugyou Special' will be held on December 9, then Miyamoto's graduation concert 'Juice=Juice Concert 2020 ~Tsuzuiteiku STORY~ Miyamoto Karin Sotsuyou Special' on the following day, December 10. Both concerts will take place at the Nippon Budokan.
Miyamoto wrote on Juice=Juice's official blog, "Right now, when the natural things aren't so natural, I feel it is natural that I deliver something more than what is expected. I will run through December 10 as Juice=Juice, and after that, as Miyamoto Karin." Meanwhile, Funaki uploaded a video onto ANGERME's official Instagram account saying, "I don't think this past year was by any means useless, so I think we will be able to show a really good ANGERME."
