    That's so unfortunate we won't see her for months essentially. Hopefully the recovery goes well cause if not she'll probably have to graduate.

    Congratulations on Rittan for signing up to Avex. Today's issue of Nikkan Sports dedicated a big special article about the event, so as per usual here is a translation of it.

    Sawajiri Erika, AAA, Kawaei Rina & co., this fresh new ground is home to all them

    Graduated from NGT in May
    Sugahara Riko
    Makes a BANG
    In Avex

    Interview - Pledging for her future progresses
    After having graduated from NGT48 on last May, it has been finalized on the 9th of the current month that Sugahara Riko (18) will go on to join the entertainment agency "Avex Management". In answering to Nikkan Sports's interview on this occasion, she also vowed to make great strides in this fresh new territory of hers.

    Each toward their own path
    The new field of activity for Sugahara has been settled on Avex, in which are also signed up Sawajiri Erika (33) AAA, and Kawaei Rina (24), to name a few. "For a person still unpolished such as me, to be confirmed to be part of Avex where there belong so many magnificent people, it really puts me into a completely new mood and motivates me to work my hardest. The image I have of it is a powerful one, one that has a «bang!» to it".
    Along with Hasegawa Rena (18). she was one of the members to stand close to Yamaguchi Maho (23), who was victim to physical abuse back in December and ended up graduating together with them at the same time. "I thought about how much I wanted to take those things I have learned while in NGT, and a put that into practical use in a different environment. I have decided inside myself to give my best in it, going there with a sentiment of raising up my level in a definite way".
    With Yamaguchi going to Ken-On and Hasegawa to the voice acting agency Crocodile, an affiliated agency has been assigned for each of them "We rejoiced so much when all of us got together and congratulated each other".
    While having a klutzy variety of stage persona and possessing a warm and fluffy atmosphere to herself, she also enjoys a solid reputation for her singing and dancing, which she had been training on ever since before she joined NGT48.
    By getting to act in the stage play "Romeo and Juliet", performed on May 2018 with Tsutsumi Yukihiko being responsible for the production direction, a passion for acting has also sprouted up in her, as she confesses she is looking forward to being a tarento, and an actress working on multiple genres. "My objective is to become a person like Kawaei-san, as well as Takei Emi-san, Hamabe Minami-san, and Shiraishi Sei-san, someone with the same grace and elegance as theirs".
    Moreover, for what it concerns the present, she tells us that she is in the process of obtaining a driving license for a mini-scooter. "It might be too ambitious of me, but I'd really want to appear on Degawa Testuro-san's «Juuden Sasete Moraemasenka?» (from the TV Tokyo network) and the likes. My father loves motorbikes, and I'd like to try riding on a Harley too one day, so right now I'm putting my efforts into push-up excercises and muscle training!".
    Her objective back in her NGT days had been "getting to hold a solo concert", and she has not given up on this dream, either. "Resigning from the group while leaving this dream unfulfilled overwhelms me with a sense of sorriness, I feel desolated even toward everyone in Niigata, as I think I caused them inconvenience with this. But for this reason, I want to commit myself so that everyone across the whole country will get to know this «novel» side of me, even in that certain sense. I want to step on forward along with all of my fans".
    During her idol days, she used to have a "sakuranbo" persona to herself, after the renowned product of her hometown of Seiro, and which she herself likes very much. However, "From here on, there would be times when I may bring that out, but also others when I may not... Giving up on it altogether would make me feel sorry toward sakuranbos, though (laugh). So I'll work on to eventually become like a Sato Nishiki [note: special variety of cherries] someday", she ended with a shy smile.


    Also learning English
    Sugahara Riko. Birthday: September 23, 2000. As an NGT48 1st generation member, had her first public debut in August 2015, on January 2016 she was promoted into Team NIII and she had been in Team G since June 2018. She graduated from said group on this May. Recently, perusing the Instagram accounts of foreign personalities has become a personal craze of hers. "I have started learning English one little bit at a time, as of late. In the future, I'd like to go live in New York". Nickname: Rittan. 155 cm tall.

    On her old home "I'll keep cheering"
    Regarding what has now become her former home, NGT, Sugahara expressed to us: "This is a group that has kept guiding us. Thanks with its locally-rooted model of it, I had the chance of participating in many ambassador roles, it was very formative for me. I'll keep praying for the day to come when they may do activities all together with a smiling face, comfortably along with the people of Niigata. I too am one of the members to have been raised there, so I'd like to keep cheering on for them at all times".

    ^ honestly the biggest shock of that interview is realizing Sawajiri Erika is only 33 lolol.

    But I'm happy for Riko. Such a good company to join tbh. And honestly Rina is huge for being an ex-AKB member; Avex really managed her well.
