Mittsu~~~~ I love you~~~~( ´ ▽ ` )ノ!
I miss you so much, but I wish you the best!

I'm rooting for you!

It's sooo disappointing.

I suddenly lost all the expectation for the new team K….orz…

In various meanings, people have been putting so much expectation on her…. It's discouraging…

Jo, Mittsu…… Yasusu…..

Many people had been anticipating after she joins the new team K, she will expand her field of work…..

Though everyone voiced their concern about her health especially since August, I then again realized it looks like she is in really bad condition.

Though this is my selfish wish, I wanted to see Mitsumune Kaoru as a member of AKB48 for a little more….

I don't think I'll still be interested in her after she leaves AKB48….

I hate the fact they use the word “Withdrawal” instead of “Graduation” even though Mittsu will be a regular member from November….

Now, all the expectation for young stars in team K will be concentrated on Tomu….

No…. No….. I will curse AKB48 if Tomu would ever graduate in similar way…



We'll close Mitsumune Kaoru's Google Plus account at 24:00 on Oct 25th.

↑This sheer gap between fans sentiment and this cold tone….

Mittsu was too skinny in the first place. No wonder she didn't have much of physical toughness required for AKB48 girls.

Watching 13gen members camping on Kami TV makes me cry.

It's so regrettable as it looked Kaoru could get close to other members through this evetn….

At first I had no particular feeling about Mitsumune, but after I watched this show ↑ I figured despite the image people may get from her looks, she is actually a down-to-earth person.

Putting together all the rumor and fact, It kinda feels there's a conflict over how to market her between people behind her, namely agency who want to promote her, and AKB48 management.

As Mitsunemu herself can't betray people who has taken care of her since way back before she joined AKB48…

↑I have a same impression.

At first, I hated on Mitsumune, but over the past 6 months, my image of Mitsumune has completely changed.

Not just a person who (pretend) to be elated, but a girl who isn't mentally strong enough as…. clumsy…

What will this affect to her starring movie “Camera Joshi” (released on November)

I hope they will realize fierce promotion for particular members don't do any good in most of the case….

They'd better learn it…..

Almost all Members who got Akimoto's fierce push have caught in troubles lol

Members who are chosen by fans are doing it far better.

↑It's more like a push from management.

When Akimoto push some of his favorite members, like JUrina, Joe, it's a whole different level. He is so much emotionally involved with them actually.

↑I wonder if Akimoto has been looking after Joe after the graduation…

  5. Sei says:

    Ok… I did not see that one coming

    About Yuko/Jurina, I really love that combination, one is eager to teach the other is eager to learn. That’s what AKB needs to keep going strong.

  6. lobane says:

    Her withdrawal proves AKB48 never easy for any member.
    Members with bright future and hope from management and fans took withdrawal.
    Like Joe who is center of team M.

  7. cryt says:

    To participate and succeed in 48group, it’s important to maintain a healthy body (not just skinny or pale skin) and not just have great potential

  8. bdj92 says:

    well, she is already a big enough talent to survive out there.
    it’s not impossible we’ll hear her name again as in the entertainment world a few years from now, without “48” attached to it. :s

  9. Zee says:

    Geez,been waiting for Kaoru aaaand she withdraw 😐

  10. Abc says:

  11. didn’t know about her until know. I think im not that hardcore than some of you guys lol

  12. blacknezumi says:

    What this is just sad. I was waiting to see her performing with team K and starring in one of the pv.
