Tanaka Reina 3043

It has been finally announced that Tanaka Reina, who was set to graduate at the end of Morning Musume’s 2013 Spring concert tour, will graduate on May 21st at the Nippon Budokan at the 6PM concert.

It’s good to get more details concerning Reina’s graduation since fans who are just waiting to know when it’s held have been quite impatient due to the lack of information, so having a set date is a relief, and it seems that Reina will be attending the open air concert held by H!P since it takes place a few days before her graduation.

Reina is the 4th recent member to graduate at the Nippon Budokan after Ai-chan, Risa and Aika, so this venue is quite special, and even though they didn’t aim for a bigger venue due to the fact that they might not be able to fill all of the seats, Morning Musume’s rising popularity and the fact that Reina herself is one of the most popular members of all time will definitely lead to alternative options to allow all of the fans to watch the graduation concert.

Hopefully everyone who has set their minds on attending will be able to so that they can enjoy this last opportunity of saying goodbye to Reina and thank her for everything she has given to Morning Musume.

    Reina was never one of my top members but, I always loved hearing her voice in the songs and it will feel odd not hearing it! At least this won’t be the last of Reina in H!P!!

    I wonder if she’ll get a graduation B-Side. I’m sure there’s going to be another single before she goes.
