I can't belive it :|

bye bye bye :(

Quoting myself from another forum-

Erika is my favourite in C-ute, so I suppose I should be sad about it, but really... she has been absolutely WASTED in C-ute, it has been nothing short of disgraceful. I'm sure she'll be a million times more successful on her own than when being forced into the shadows of others.

Agrees with Mr Waffle...
good bye my sweetness.... see ya real soon in RL
 2009-08-01 13:12
best wishes to ume :D

totally a good decision to move on ;)

good luck with the modeling career :)
 2009-08-01 13:13
` No D: I don't want Erika to graduate, she was one of my favourite and one of the most overlooked members in H!P Kids. And what's C-ute going to do with only 5 members? Berryz is just going to overshadow them again, since they still have their ( wells minus Maiha ) full seven members.
 2009-08-01 13:18
Good Luck Erika!
I will miss you :)
 2009-08-01 13:19
Wtf, wth! :O That's weird XD I'm not quite sure about my opinion about this but atm i feel pretty great. XD A little sad as she can be pretty pretty but maybe C-ute will just become better if the "no one" leaves :D And if she becomes a model there will be even more of her prettyness!!! :D

Let's be honest, most people (myself included) only really can identify one or two members in C-ute. Erika was one of the also-rans. The tall funny-looking one. Well, if she really believes she an make it as a model, good for her.
 2009-08-01 13:20
This is very very sad, but I think she'll make a great fashion model. I really hope she'll be able to get to where she wants to be. <3 And I hope we'll be seeing her in a few magazines later on. (Well, sooner rather than later.)
 2009-08-01 13:20
best member leaving :( nothing left to c-ute now.

Although exactly what studying do you need to be a fashion model? Walk back and forth, look pretty, eat diet pills, become androgynous rake. :( sad now
 2009-08-01 13:24
I will surely miss you Erika TT TT
 2009-08-01 13:25
i did NOT expect this to come up..

yeah, i don't know what will become of C-ute.. ..i wonder what Tsunku will do? let them be a 5 member group or add in at least 1-2 members?

best wishes for Erika for the future and beyond for her modeling career :)
 2009-08-01 13:26
what will happen to C-ute?
good luck Erika, I will still support you!!
 2009-08-01 13:27
Omg! Insane!!! NO ONE LEFT SOON >_<
 2009-08-01 13:28
Oh no.. But well, My best wishes Umesan! I'm sure that you'll be a great Model. Ganbare~ ♥ We'll miss you.. :(
 2009-08-01 13:29
hmm she really was kinda wasted in C-ute.
i wish her well in whatever career she wants to pursue .
 2009-08-01 13:39
And another one goes down~!
Like I said before, I'm absolutely not a C-ute fan. But I wish her all the best in her new career.
 2009-08-01 13:40
I was kinda expecting it. Erika has always been overshadowed by the other members in c-ute, and she became 18 this may, so it was either quitting, or fade away. I hope she break through and become an successful model/idol.

Will be exciting to see what happens with the rest of c-ute. The future looks grim if they don't improve tremendously, or get new members. Since this is a "proper" graduation, then there should time to requite some egg's.

I see someone has updated Wikipedia already. o_0

@dazzy - Someone beat you to it, eh? Bother!
 2009-08-01 13:53
pretty weird now that c-ute only has 5 members...i guess they can make do with that and more lines for everyone not Airi and Maimi. Wouldnt be surprised when they add new members to C-ute though
 Rena Ichijouji
 2009-08-01 13:53
Wow. I was not expecting this. At all. ;___;

She was VERY underused for her talent and I hope that she can find more success in modeling. She's a tall, gorgeous girl, so I don't think she will have much trouble at all.

Poor C-ute...as if 6 wasn't bad enough, now they only have 5...Yikes. :(
 2009-08-01 13:54
Another one?
 2009-08-01 13:56
No, no and again no.

The only one I liked since the departure of the Elder Club.
I understand and I support his decision, but enough is enough. HP is over for me.
 2009-08-01 13:56
She will have a graduation instead of Kanna!!! But .... 5 °C-ute is not °C-ute!! it's soo sad!
 r r r
 2009-08-01 14:02
Yet one less background dancer for Airi and Maimi
 2009-08-01 14:02
When kanna left they made that song BYE BYE BYE ...
Was it dedicated to kanna? I bet kanna hate that song
But why erika? WHY! who's gonna sing Do don ga don!!?
 2009-08-01 14:03
I'm looking forward to see her model.
And wish her luck!
 2009-08-01 14:06
I think that Kumai Yurina will have the same future.
 2009-08-01 14:06
I'm not a fan of Erika, but..........FIVE °C-UTE MEMBERS????? DD=
NO WAY!! >.<
Okay, now they REALLY need one more member to come =O
Good Luck Erika! =D
I'm also looking forward to see her as a model! =]
 2009-08-01 14:08
i got up this morning to see this? wow.....

i'm glad though, that she can finally shine in doing something to where she's the center of attention. she doesn't have the conventional looks to be a model, but then again, who does anymore? i'm happy for her. best of luck, erika!
 2009-08-01 14:14
A C-ute member getting an actual graduation concert, that's new
 2009-08-01 14:15
there goes hopes of her being the 3rd member of minimoni :(

Wow... I agree with the folks that say that Ume's been wasted in C-ute. She has been. But this still makes me sad. I really like her and I hope she has a fantastic future.

I wonder if she's going to college as part of this studying. She's about the right age for it. (I've actually been wondering what would happen once the H!P Kids started approaching HS graduation age. Guess we know now.)

This is a little frustrating, to say the least. I really liked C-ute's early stuff and their more energetic stuff that's come out since then, but it seems like ever since debut they've been struggling to find a direction for the group, and on top of that we seem to have a "C-utie Curse" as they're dropping like flies. I'm interested to see whether they'll add some eggs, as others have been saying, and what their next several releases will sound like.
 2009-08-01 14:22
℃-ute without the 'E'...
 2009-08-01 14:24
I'm sad and shocked to see her go, it's strange I heard a rumor a month or so back that she was going to be graduating when she turned 18. I guess they either made a good guess or new something. This makes me sad, °C-ute is my fav group and what got me into H!P. While Erika was not my fav member I still enjoyed her. Now two girls gone in such a short time. I really don't want any new members in °C-ute. I hope they just keep it to the five remaining members. I'm happy she is going to have a proper graduation and go out in style. I wish her the best in life and I'm sure she will do fine.
 2009-08-01 14:24
omg no way this was totally unexpected =( im so sad shes going, always had been my fave member of c-ute, im wondering whats going to happen with c-ute now
but i agree she was being wasted in that group and quite honestly c-ute has been a 2 member group for a long time now. i wish her all the best in the future =(
 2009-08-01 14:24
Bye Erika...
 Evening Musuko
 2009-08-01 14:26
Wow! I wasn't expecting this at all!

Well, she wasn't used much in c-ute anyway. I hope she finds better success as a model.

What will Massara Blue Jeans be without Kanna and Erika?

Let me guess... MAIMI AND AIRI DUO? OTHER?

I'm sad... °C-ute will become a duo soon... An Official duo at least...
 2009-08-01 14:39
This will definitely be another blow to the group (°C-ute). It's hard to respect your decision but you need to face another chapter in life, that is, outside H!P.
Good luck on your career and we hope to hear from you again. *sniff

Thanks Erika for sharing and showing us your talent. otsukaresama deshita!
 2009-08-01 14:47
They should be renamed to °C-ut.
 2009-08-01 14:52
Oh well, model?
That's not bad~ :D
(sigh) - 3 - //
 2009-08-01 14:54
Good for her anyway. Other backup dancers might be confused though.
 2009-08-01 15:03
So the C-ute has only 5 members now.

Time to find the new member ???????????????????
 2009-08-01 15:03
Erika was my fave in C-ute but for some reason I'm not too sad. I'll definitely miss her, but... >.> THIS IS NO WHERE NEAR AS BAD AS WHEN MEGUMI LEFT. OH MEGUMI, I MISS YOU SO MUCH ;________;
 2009-08-01 15:07
Oh my god, I can't believe this! TT-TT
But I wish her good luck <3 She was one of my favorites in C-ute.
 2009-08-01 15:07
WHA WHA WHATTTTTTTTTT?!?!?!?!?!???!?!!?!!1

I'm in shock. I mean this is crazy.....is C-ute self destructing? Did Kanna's leave start all this? O.o;; I ponder what shall happen now....more lines for Chisato? :D
 2009-08-01 15:07
another one lol
well, so long.
 2009-08-01 15:14
Erika ? D:
... but I can sort of understand looking at the way C-ute is run.
You will be missed, GREATLY. D:
Best wishes to her as she goes into the fashion world.
