Miki has been passionate about being the in-between person for international/English speaking fans. But doesn't Mei speak English?

Two members in the group who know English well would be pretty cool. But Miki might graduate in 1 or 2 years to maybe pursue studies in English or something. I've pictured her doing that.


Everyone is talking about Erina's "glow" recently. Akane has been looking pretty cute too, as of late. I hope that's not a sign for her departure.


Kaede waited 4 years to get in Momusu. I don't see her graduating anytime soon.




And I hope Reina won't graduate yet. I hope she doesn't feel pressured by anything :(

I think the next to go will be Eripon in the fall of 2020. I also feel like at least one out of Ayumi, Maachan, or Sakura will leave soon after. I think Mizuki will stay al long as possible. 12-14th gens seem like they'll all stay for a while but Chisaki is kind of a wild card to me. 15th gen just got here so its too early for one of them to go barring a serious injury or scandal.

Current: (MM) Kaede Maria Sakura Chisaki (A) Moe (JJ) Ruru(KF) Minami (TF) Yumeno Risa Mao BYD: Momohime Kurumi Kokoro Reina Kss: Kirara Natsume Kanami Graduated: Zukki Riho Maho Meimi Nanami 48 Groups: Cuca

Maa-chan is going to graduate at the Olympics!!! lol that definitely won't happen but it's a legendary idea and something only Maa-chan would do if she was allowed.

But I agree with the possibility of Eripon and Akane graduating soon because they have that glow up as of late. So next year is a possibility for them.

i feel like i'm the only one who see's eripon following gaki's lead and leaving shortly after mizuki but giving her enough time to experience being the leader. i can see ayumi, sakura and maachan all leaving before her.

I don't know if this was ever confirmed anywhere, but I got the impression from how they talk about her that Kaga has been given or taken on some kind of responsibility over the 15ki. It would make sense, since she also had experience as a KSS sempai, and seems very dependable. Also, while she's not a front girl, she's not really pushed to the back either. I feel like she hold a position similar to Kudo did, a middle girl. She seems to be someone the management doesn't want to push much but knows they can depend on her when they need it. For these reasons I don't think she'll be leaving soon. I could see her staying to be leading if enough of her seniors graduate i quick succession.

MM ~ Nonaka Miki, Kaga Kaede ANGERME ~ Sasaki Rikako J=J ~ Takagi Sayuki, Danbara Ruru 

CG ~ Yamaki Risa KF ~ Hamaura Ayano TF~ Kishimoto Yumeno

Reviving this thread I think the next one will be Ayumi, and I think that was annouced to staff (and maybe to the members too), near Haruna's grad. That could be the reason of why she wasn't annouced as sub-leader when Honey graduated. Probably she was talking with staff if she should graduate in 2019 or to wait for 2020, which made management to promote her to sub leader, staying in the group all the 2019 in the group as we saw. If she graduates I think it'll be for the end of the Autumn tour.

^I forgot to mention in my hypothesis that once she with management decided she'll graduate this year, management decided to promote her as sub-leader following the tradition. Because her promotion to sub-leader occurred at the New Year concert (if I remember well ) and not at the final concert of the Ready Set go.

Haga is questionable because she's at the age where university is a forethought and she's from a well-off family so she may be expected to go, but I also feel like she's enjoying herself a lot and getting pushed more. She also would have likely announced graduation by this point, so I think she's safe from the "going to focus on studies" graduation. That being said, I don't think Ishida will be the next to go, but I definitely think it will be a Colorful Era member. 



If I had to wager a guess: Ikuta > Oda > Fukumura > Ishida > Satou.

I mean even if they don't sound as good or utahime ish, they obviously can survive without her and any other of the CE members. They can also do similar to when Reina graduated and get a girl that's already great at singing (tho 15ki imo brought all 3 good+ voices, there is no Ruru/Sakura), like with her and Moe. I know Maa's grad will bring a lot of 'MM is over' comments but we know how that rolls at this point.

Except for Fukuchan all the other 4 girls have mentioned having thought of graduation recently or when x graduated but in the end they decided to stick around.(maybe Fukuchan as well? I just don't remember reading it)

In any case when it comes to them I feel that I want to see what's next for them? That point that even if I'll be sad my ultimate fave is gone I just want to see what she brings to the table and for her to make a better use of her voice. Not saying she isn't but I feel MM doesn't get as many ad libs or whoa parts like JJ for her to grow.

Maa is probably the one I would miss the most inside MM and also the one grad I fear cause I'm nor sure she would stay public.

For those two I just hope they get a 100% center single. Like, similar to Riho's many and Duu's last, that it's just obvious it's her single/song.

I think we won't be surprised by any of them going at this point, if I have to say who I think I'll say Ayumi but only cause she got more spotlight in this last single. Lately I feel it's a thing? Manaka, Haruka, Rina, Muro, W Haruna, Nanami I think? (Can't remember how many JJ singles she took part of). Ofc this is a reach but it's the feeling I got.

I do think all of them are stagnant in their role tho. Growth wise I would love to see what's next.
