This is simply what I want to say, because HEY, I like rumours and it means I can give my opinion, whether you like it or not. TROLOL.
So it seems that the rumour mill is running again, because people on my facebook are freaking the fuck out over supposed graduation speculations, all because of a tour title for the up-coming Morning Musume Spring Concert.
Yup... People are flipping out like they're gymnasts.
Morning Musume Concert Tour 2013 Haru ~Michishige☆Eleven SOUL~ is the concert name, which I do think will cause some hype and upset with fans, because yes, name's in a concert can sometimes be bloody misleading. But as many have already said, not all graduations have concerts named after them - Gaki and Aika being some. Ai Believe was a special case for the end of a boring reign of the sexy lady herself, Ai.
But yeah, this is just speculation, and honestly I don't believe it, because I have a feeling that H!P will literally have to knock Shige out and then drag her away in a body bag, dump her somewhere and then drive off before she officially signs away her Idol career as a MoMusu member.
Seriously... I don't think that she will leave without a fight, because MoMusu means a lot to her, more so now because she has children to perv on.
If anything, I feel like the tour just indicates the start of a new era. Sakura has just joined Morning Musume, and this is the most active the girls have been in a while. They are re-igniting the promotional torch with this group, and people are taking notice of them again, if only a little more. Their songs are, admittedly, getting better and we are seeing a new Morning Musume, so if anything, the concert is to simply indicate Shige's reign as Morning Musume's cute, and undeniably sexy, leader.
That, and it's far too early for her to leave. If anything, i give her another two years. In fact, I can see Reina legging it long before Sayu does, or at least leaving alongside Sayu, because she seems pretty bored of MM now that she has no competition (you can't count Riho as competition, she's basically Reina 2.0 without the natural gift of being able to sing), and considering Shige is sort of her only rock (gehehe Rock, Rokkies...) in MM now, well, other than the Midget Meister (Masakissu) she really doesn't seem too bothered...
But yeah, it's just a rumour, and I can see why people are flipping out over it, but I don't think that people should be tearing their hair out over this sort of rumour. If she does graduate, I speculate an Aki graduation, at the very least. But I don't see that happening, because the girls need someone to help them out still, and whilst I am pretty sure that Fukuhime is old enough to take on the role of leadership, I'm not sure that she's spirited enough to step into Shige's shoes too soon.
... Yeah, I really have no hope that Reina will ever lead. Or at least, I don't want her to lead. It will be the Winking Era if that ever happens, I swear...
Hey, I like that idea!!!
Anyway, it's a rumour... so keep your knickers on until it's officially announced, and then flip out if it does just so happen that Shige was brainwashed enough to say 'Yeah, sure, I'll graduate, give Reina the reigns... Oh wait, I'm taking her with me, soz lololol', or something to that effect. But until it happens, STAY CALM AND EAT CAKE.
Chiima over and OUT!
PINGU! Itsumo Genli: FINALLY!!!!!
