Discussion in 'NMB48 Graduated Members' started by ForrestFuller, Apr 3, 2015.
i'm in shock!!!!!!
She posted a video (From her own YT Account).
did she say why?
it's surprising for this to come from a regular senbatsu member
I bet she got bunshun-ed holy cow
This really hurts.
I'm not that surprised. I don't follow NMB but I happen to follow her twitter and ig. For a non fan it feels like she's drifting away from the idol scene in 2018. Moving towards more gravure work that gets more daring with each issue.
It's probably bunshun due to immediately firing. Or she already had something planned without informing management.
Don't know what to say
Naturally NMB can't have one nice sub-unit lol. I'm completely in shock over this. It's just so unexpected and is really fishy. No way she just left like that without a graduation or theater performance. Only idols who get fired usually can leave like this right? Or break something in their contract and the best thing to do is just leave immediately.
Edit: I just noticed she has her own youtube channel now??? Ok. Is that like a special reason why she left?
This is so unexpected that make me create many theories in my mind. It's so strange the way that happened, i just hope it's nothing in relation to her health
She did an Instalive last night in addition to that Youtube video and because of the livestream nature of it, we got some more details like:
- She "snapped" and decided she wanted to leave
- She's not pregnant
- She's not going to be on Bunshun or any other tabloid
- There is no scandal
- She thought that if she was going to quit, going through the whole process of announcement - grad show was too much
- She will continue her activities in some other way (I assume this is where Youtube comes in)
- No comment on if its a health issue
That's still fishy to me. She was going to be a stable senbatsu member in NMB; I mean she kind of already was now. And she's in Queentet. So like she had a lot going for her in NMB tbh. I've never seen a member just leave like this without some form of scandal/contract issue to follow suit or a health issue.
So strange of Azusa honestly. Such a shame u know. I really liked her and she had a good shot in NMB.
I agree, she was a senbatsu member and got regular gravure jobs, she must have been getting more money than the normal NMB poverty wages.
Even when a member is leaving for "good" reasons like going to college or outside work like Nakamura Mariko/Morikawa Ayaka et al, they still do the announce/grad show deal. Like, we've all seen members announce and be gone from the group a month later and there's no real ill feeling.
This Japanese Azusa fan on Twitter isn't very happy about her graduation, understandably as he has a shed load of HS tickets for her which he can no longer use:
It does leave a bad taste tho. And for sure she was making more money than a regular theater girl as a rising member lol. But I guess not much anyone can do - including her die hard fans out there that have shit ready for her. Maybe we'll have to wait for a youtube video 2 years down the road that explains why she left lol. Make sure to watch, like, and subscribe lol
let's wait and see
what's the next chapter folks
What do they say ?
I'd prefer we don't give oxygen to unfounded speculation.
If it's true, another reason to get rid of the dating rule.
