ANGERME member Kasahara Momona has announced that she will graduate from both the group and Hello! Project by the end of the year.
Kasahara became a Hello Pro Kenshusei in 2015, then an official member of ANGERME in July of 2016. According to Hello! Project's official website, she expressed her wishes of graduating late last year. After graduation, she hopes to challenge herself to new things by studying singing and dancing overseas.
Kasahara commented, "To me, ANGERME is everything in my life right now. It's precious, and I love them. If there were no ANGERME, I wouldn't exist. That's why I decided to leave during my teenage years."
Kasahara will participate in Hello! Project's concert tour 'Hello! Project 2021 Summer Sapphire & Ruby' from July to September. Her graduation date will be announced at a later date.
