Let’s all of us Ogata wota have a heart-to-heart.

She wasn’t my oshi, but I definitely had a soft spot for her looks and her Osaka dialect. I miss her.

It’s always lonely when we lose a girl who has an impression of being someone who’s always smiling.

It’s lonely. It feels like a lifetime ago that she was being silly and pretending to be pissed off on the radio at Kaga and Yokoyama.

Looks-wise she was at her very best at her graduation concert — making the loss hit that much harder.

That sense of purity she had about her was just something else.

Every group needs a member like Haa-chin.
Having someone like her in there just gives you this feeling of… security.

We’re never going to see that smile of hers again. Of course it feels lonely.

I would’ve at least wanted her to release a photobook before quitting.

I had no interest in her… and yet, after seeing her graduation concert, my sense of loss now is just off-the-charts.

She said at her birthday event that her goal for this year was to release a photobook.
That would mean she wasn’t yet planning on quitting at the time…

Harunan talk show report:
Harunan has been in daily contact with Haa-chin after her graduation. The other day Haa-chin apparently sent her a selfie that showed her new hairstyle. Oh, and Harunan apparently gave Haa-chin an “A-friendly” swimsuit as a graduation gift. (laughs)

Iikubo Haruna-san, Hello! Shop Osaka, 2nd event.
Question: “What are Triple A’s future plans?” (Note: “Triple A” is what Iikubo, Ogata, and Kudo call themselves for being flat as a pancake.)
Iikubo-san: Triple A has its own LINE group, and it’s like this information exchange spot where we discuss things that have reportedly been effective and produced good results… But so far, no one in the group has said anything as to any of these things actually working for them. All three of us are going to keep aiming for “progress” on this front.

Up until now, no matter who it was quitting I never gave it much thought.
But this time it really does feel lonely.

When they first announced her graduation, I wished that she wouldn’t leave the group yet. But then actually seeing her graduation concert, it felt like maybe this was actually the perfect happy ending for her.

– Was one of the last new members with no previous experience
– Her looks — pale skin; face that would become all squished even when she just smiled gently
– Noticeable improvement in her singing and dancing
– That air of modesty (would always put others before herself)
– Showed us her absolutely cutest form at her graduation concert
It feels like there’d be a lot of people for whom she wasn’t their oshi per se, but who came to see her appeal at her graduation concert and have have since then started feeling a sense of loss. The sheer loveliness she had at that concert was as if she took all the brilliance that she was going to gain in the upcoming years and she condensed it all into that one single night.

A normal girl who looked up to Sayashi got to join Morning Musume, the group she so admired. She soon got to learn the hard way the difference in level that existed between her and the other members… and the resulting frustration and hardship. And yet, in the end she got to graduate at Budokan as an idol that everyone loves, with everyone feeling sorry to see her go.
She may not have been a part of the main plot line in H!P’s long-running story… but her “side story” had an amazingly happy ending.

Her “Namida ga Tomaranai Houkago” performance was the first time that I thought of it as a great song.

I’ve been re-reading her last blog post over and over again, thinking a new post might pop up any moment now…

Ogata’s graduation was something that made me realize how it’s a good thing when the group and its members aren’t perfect. And in that sense, someone like Ogata really was essential for Musume.

She had a great graduation concert.
I wish I could’ve caught on to her greatness sooner.

I liked all the members’ individual graduation messages to Ogata. It was so obvious how kind of a person Ogata is, and how she was loved by each and every one of the members.

I totally get what the leader meant when she said, “I’ve realized that I like you more than I even thought, Haa-chin.” It really feels like I only got to like Haa-chin after her graduation.

I swear, she’s not even my oshi and I’m still crying about her every day.
There’s something wrong with me.

I became a Haa-chin fan because of her voice and her way of speaking (what with her Kyoto-leaning Osaka dialect). Even just listening to her voice alone was so pleasant for me.

All’s well that ends well.

One of those essential members whose importance you only recognize once she’s gone.
Although of course the Haa-chin wota all knew this from the beginning.

I love you, Haa-chin.
