She’s always been my least favorite. So now I’m losing my favorite and least favorite at the same time. Guess it’s time for Manaka to step up and regain her title as least favorite.

She lasted so much longer than I expected. Well.

Honestly speaking, not surprised. She lasted a fairly long time, so it's about time for her to move on.

Yeah, definitely can't say I'm surprised. Sucks that J=J is loosing two members in such a short timespan though.

With her, Haruna and Ayaka graduating, no more 1994 babies left in H!P. At least Airi as a soloist is still affiliated with Up-Front.

 

The oldest is now Tomoko Kanazawa, although it seems pretty obvious that the second oldest, Mizuki, will be H!P leader now.

Yuka's a sweetheart, I hope she finds success in whatever she pursues from here on. I did like her very convincing announcer voice.  :lol:

That’s exactly what happened to me with Morning Musume and the Haruna’s!

Honestly she improved quite a lot under J=J, and seemed to be a stable rock to her members. Between constant touring, higher-talent demands, "managing" teen->adult young women... I give my hats off to her.

Not that the leader does THAT that much in a group, but I always got the impression she was good glue for the group. She welcomed new members in with open arms, as well. I'm happy for her and what she's achieved in Juice=Juice... None of us expected her to be the top singer, dancer or actor. But she did become a very solid performer and I'm happy enough with that from her.



Hoping she has a happy post-grad life :)

 

 

PS: In the video she released on Hello!Station, she didn't specify what she'd be doing post-grad---just that she hopes to find something that she can shine in as herself, instead of shining as the "Miyazaki Yuka of Juice=Juice." So it sounds like her career path has not yet been decided/solidified. It's vague enough that she could just melt back into the public, or still go on in the world of showbiz in some capacity. My personal bet is that she'll settle down back in Ishikawa.

She finally makes it out of my bottom five to above tsubaki and all the newbies but I'm still not that torn up about it.

Thanks for this.

 

She describes her difficulty in making decisions and how she would consult the other members when a decision had to be made. I wonder what kinds of issues came up that were addressed this way and curious about how the group responded. What's that process like? I know such things don't exist, but I'd love to see a transcript or video recording of one of those sessions.

Thank you for this. Yuka is my 2nd favorite idol in H!P, I just love her sweet voice and charisma. I'm really going to miss her. I'm the kind of person who clings to a group because of one girl, so I really hope her leaving doesn't kill my interest in Juice=Juice.

My friend and I just went to see her grad concert’s live viewing in a theater. It was definitely a different experience, but we still had our pen lights and everything.

Tbh even though I consider MM my favorite group, I think nobody else can really touch Juice=Juice. They are so talented and entertaining to watch live. I hope to see them in person one day.

Can’t post pics right now cuz I’m on the train but Yuka’s dress was sort of a hybrid between kimono and European style dress I think. A little strange at first but I got used to it and I think it fit her. She is so cute and sweet.

Someone streamed it on twitch so I watched up until the graduation messages before I had to go to work. Her dress was pretty. Reminded me a bit of a hybrid between Meimi and Niigaki.

Hopefully this link works. I’m on my phone and don’t know how to share imgur links properly.

Aside from the graduation. My big take away was how good Manaka has gotten vocally. She’s getting proper training now since her vocal issues or something because I was pretty impressed with her. I mean, she’s still not the best but she’s gotten worlds better.

The opening of the concert was kind of a little lukewarm but after the newbies came out and Sayumi came to give flowers to Yuka, it really pumped up.

Damn, I had today off work, so I would have totally watched that stream had I known about it. I'm not digging that Southern Belle Kimono look, tho.

J=J and Angerme are definitely the H!P groups I would want to see live, given the choice.

 

That dress (or is it a two piece?) is kind of awkward / hideous, yet I feel like it suits Yuka's image perfectly, haha.

This is the first time I've watched one of their concerts all the way through. Does Sayuki normally have that much trouble holding the tune?

I agree Manaka’s vocals have improved tremendously. I actually don’t hate her in J=J anymore because she at least fits vocally!

I feel like the grad concerts usually have worse vocals because people are trying to stop themselves from crying.

DAMN Y'ALL HARSH

 

I thought her graduation outfit was great.... Very memorable and larger-than-life without being truly gaudy. Thought it suited her very well..... Will comment on the concert itself later on lmao
