Shocking News on Country Girls
Hello!Project announced some big changes coming up for Country Girls.
As you all know, playing manager Tsugunaga Momoko will be graduating at the end of this month.
Country Girls will start prefoming as a 5-nin unit until the end of the summer.
When the summer ends Yamaki Risa and Ozeki Mai will focus on school, while Morito Chisaki, Yanagawa Nanami and Funaki Musubu will all join different groups within Hello!Project.
Country Girls will only be active during vacations and school breaks.
This also means that the group won't release any singles, the songs that they release will be digital singles.
What this actually means is that Country Girls will become a sub-unit, with members from other groups and members who are only active when school allows them to be. It is not know which groups Chii, Yanami and Musubu will join or if they will stay togheter. More information will be provided on a later date.
This is really sad and weird news.
It's quite terrible to see Country Girls becoming a sub-unit like this and their members going to different group or being less active. It is really amazing that Risa and Mai will be focussing on their studies and it is admirable. Yet it's such sad news... I wonder in what group(s) the other three girls will get into and how they will change the dynamics. I will be looking forwards to Country Girls appearing once in a while though...
