The last member of the Hello! Project group Coconuts Musume, Kimura Ayaka, has graduated from Hello! Project unexpectedly on April 30th, 2008 to become an actress.
No!! I love Ayaka. Although she did like nothing. They could have at least put her in a new subgroup or give her back her Surprise English Lessons show. ><
She was one of the older members of Hello! Project, joining way back in 1999. She was in H!P for about nine years, which is amazing because the only members I can think of right now that were in before her are Abe Natsumi, Iida Kaori, Nakazawa Yuuko, Yasuda Kei & Yaguchi Mari who were all from Morning Musume. Coconuts Musume was already done for…they haven’t released anything since August 2001 & her show ended in 2002 so she was just…there for the past 5 years. Wasted talent.
I hope she does good in acting & I really want to see whatever she’ll star in. Good luck Ayaka! :(
