Fukuda Kanon announced her graduation from Angerme (ex S/mileage) and Hello! Project.
She is going to continue her activities with Angerme and Hello! Project until her graduation scheduled this autumn.
Fukuda Kanon explained that she wanted to focus on studies at university.
Maro made this announcement during Hello! Station #118 on May 20. Check out the video below.
Fukuda Kanon is a 1st generation member of Angerme. She joined the idol group in 2009 when it was still known as S/mileage. She was previously part of Hello! Pro Egg.
Her official message has been translated into English by Up-Front Link :
To all the people who have always supported me.
I, Kanon Fukuda, have decided to graduate this fall from ANGERME as well as from Hello! Project.
Now that I became a member of S/mileage around 6 years ago, after the 3rd generation members joined and the group changed its name in order to become more powerful, I oriented myself to the thought of graduating. So after my graduation, I trust and feel relieve that the group would become bigger and bigger.
Then, as well as graduating from ANGERME this fall, I have decided to take a new road.
All of this came from me.
The remaining time until my graduation is quite limited but in order to not waste one day, I took a break from the university I was going to. Now I devote myself and rush to ANGERME’s activities until the end.
After my graduation I will go back to the university, and I will firmly study to graduate from the university, as well as for the work, going through new challenges, so please continue to support me.
We wish her all the best in her future endeavors. Thank you for the hard work Maro.
