It's been announced that Tsubaki Factory's Ogata Risa has ended her activities in the group as well as Hello! Project. From now on, she will be carrying out her entertainment activities separately.
Ogata had been on hiatus since October after violating Hello! Project's rules when she wrote personal complaints on her social media accounts. According to Hello! Project's official website, Ogata wanted to take full responsibility as a member of Tsubaki Factory and explore new possibilities in showbiz. As her agency, they decided to support her decision. Her upcoming activities will be announced once they have been decided.
