First of all, I suck at updating this site. LoL Not as motivated as I used to, plus busy with life and such. But anyway…this post is actually about updates about Eri since her graduation! It may not be much but it means alot to us fans. Here’s a few I’ve found around:
On twitter back in Sept. 10, Tsunku has tweeted about Eri. (link)
そういえば、亀井連絡あってかなり回復方向にあると言うこと。よかったなり。RT @harusame987 @tsunkuboy やっぱ亀井ちゃんのモーニング娘。復帰はないですか？
Somebody tweeted Tsunku about if Eri would return to which he replied that she has been contacted a few times and has recovered significantly from her illness. But does not answer about any return.
Better than nothing, as they say. It’s great news to hear that she’s recovering well.
Next, on September 30th, one of Morning Musume’s longtime member and leader Takahashi Ai has graduated from the group as well as Hello! Project. From several fan accounts who have attended the graduation said they have spotted Eri in the audience. They described her as having longer black shoulder length hair. She came with her mother and sat in the same row with other former MM members Yossi, Makoto, and Miki. She was seen crying just as hard as the members on stage during the graduation ceremony. And Reina mentioned in her blog that some of the OG members, including Eri, attended the concert.
It’s great to hear that Eri is still keeping in touch with the other members and vice versa. We were beginning to be afraid that she had disappeared all together, but thanks to all these tiny updates and accounts about her, we can only hope that one day she will return to the entertainment business.
Updated: Here’s a recent picture of Eri and other OG members with Tsunku-san! From Miki’s blog.
Waaaaahh!!! She looks like old school Eri again! <3 Can we form a group with these members? Please????
