    This is a prome example of wrong translation. Sayumi did not announce her retirement at all. She announced instead that she is going to take a short break after her graduation (= she is going to return to show business afterwards). Nothing else.

      Thanks for the correction and sorry for the mistranslation.

    Elle a raison de suspendre ses activités : ça a l’air d’être un peu dur de travailler en tant qu’idole. On doit être toujours présent pour les fans afin de les divertir. Beaucoup d’idoles on fait des pauses pour le même motif : fatigue (ou pour découvir de nouvelles choses comme le cas de Berryz Kobo…)

    Repose-toi bien, belle Sayumi. Tu en as vraiment besoin après tout le travail que as fait au sein de Morning Musume pour nous divertir (pendant plus de onze ans maintenant).
