Today, on May 21st 2013, Tanaka Reina of Morning Musume officially graduated. For 10 years now, Tanaka Reina has been a part of a group that has lasted for over 15 years, and has also been the fact of that group for some time now, leading songs and becoming well-known amongst fans.
Whilst I am not a fan of her, I want to wish Reina the best in her future as a singer She is letting go of that Idol image that we have been painfully watching over time, and will be taking on her new Rock persona as a part of the group LoVendoЯ.
|Holy Cow, there's more shoe here than there is dress!|
And also that she descended into Darkness, and never came out, cackling and winking away as she threw glitter everywhere.
|Are those tears in her eyes that I see, or is it just the fucking glitter?|
Oh, should I also mention how half-assed the costume looks? Seems like the designers know that Winky herself is Half-assed, so they didn't even bother to finish the dress. Nice.
My friend also mentioned that Reina looked bad-ass, but in general, this woman never looks bad-ass, so yeah...
Right now, as a fan of Morning Musume, I have no feeling towards this graduation. I have not cried, but I have not cheered, either. I just know that right now, it's the end of an era, and the end of the Reign of Winky in Morning Musume. I am looking forward to what happens from now on. I will probably wonder where her voice is sometimes, and why her Winking eye is not roaming around somewhere in a PV, but honestly? I am excited to see what will happen next, and also...
I am just so happy to see the back of her. BON VOYAGE, WINKY!!!
She has given her Final Wink and a Final Wonk, but now it is time for a new chapter, a new Reign in Morning Musume, a passing of the Bows and the burning ceremony of the Cat Ears. Tanaka Reina, it is time to go, so finally I will say this to you, as a fan of Morning Musume and someone who just does not give two figs about you:
Tanaka Reina, Omedetou Sotsugyou! Good luck in your future endeavours, I can only wish you the best!
... Too bad I won't be following you hear on afterwards, unless you catch my interest... which I sincerely hope you don't.
JA NE, AU REVOIR, ADIOS AND BYE BYE CHA CHA!!!! Here's to you leaving, finally! -cackles-
