Discussion in 'Hinatazaka46 Graduated Members' started by ForrestFuller, May 11, 2016.
One of their more likeable members discarded for truly nothing.
I love seeing her stoic expression and her struggle to keep up with the choreography in hinata live performance and mv
I’m going to miss her a lot especially in variety...
Yes, I hope the Snack Bar is up and running by next year when I'm back in Tokyo, I'd definitely be adding it to my places to visit list It'd tie with Yakiniku IWA as my favourite place to eat
Anyhow, I wish her nothing but happiness.
She probably quit because of backlash against the leaked pic, not because of management orders. Worse leaks have happened in both 48 and Sakamichi and members are still around after it.
There is no "love ban" in the sense of getting officially punished for it anymore, there is only girls who wish to stay and endure the hate posts and those who don't wanna put up with it.
Heck, a recent case bordered on revenge porn and yet the girl is still in the group and received a large cheer when she came back to theater (and I'm all for it coz she's hella cute btw).
This is sad to hear about. She had this Lucille Ball (I Love Lucy, for those old enough to remember that show) type of vibe to me. Very funny and very creative. The Snack Mao segment in the HiraOshi/HinaAi was such a smart idea to me. It was a great way to introduce the girls. I feel that she should have a bit more credit for this segment. I hope she goes on to do more great things.
Japanese and Korean fans are toxic....
Toxic fans are toxic, and they aren't distinguished by Nationality.
There, all the "kimi ga number 1" girls have gone now.
No more Snack Mao
never agreed with the love ban so i'm sad this situation has led to yet another graduation.... that being said, mao was never a popular member and adding a scandal on top of it would mean empty hs lanes and no love from fans... i'm sure she considered this as well. it's a shame since she was such a funny presence for the group... just like keyaki lost oda, hinata lost such a great variety star over dumb no boys allowed laws rip..
it's been great mao, i wish you the best
Really sad, but I think we sort of expected it. . . but it sucks because it's yet another member leaving because of dumb contractual clauses that maybe make some sense if your idol group are immature kids but a hell of a lot less sense when you're talking about grown bloody women who should be allocated a certain amount of freedom. Never understood the love ban, never will.
She's great, she's so entertaining and funny and I hope we haven't seen the last of her.
What i know about Mao is her "Baka" character she have for an Idol (comedian level), but when I try to read all member's blog talk about Mao, I feel amazing. Looks like she has different personality on the back stage, more mature and big sister image for everyone. Respect for Iguchi Mao .
I saw her on Dasada and it made me sad because I was reminded she is graduating.
Profile page and blog of Iguchi Mao to close on 31 March 2020.
Last appearance of Mao at HinaAi. Otsukare
Memi, Iguchi.. unique personalities, unique visuals... ahhhhhh
I'm happy she got to say a proper farewell on HinaAi. She deserved that with how great Snack Mao became as a vehicle to introduce the girls.
Will miss her. She wasn't my favorite member but she added a ton of funny moments in their shows. Hoping that she is successful after her graduation.
