On June 21, rumors came around about her debuting in Hello! Project. A few days later on June 25, Tsunku confirmed that she was going to join Hello! Pro Kenshuusei, and go under training to debut as a soloist within Hello! Project similar to Mano Erina.
On January 19, She was diagnosed with Severe Dengue Fever and was told to stop her work as a trainee until she fully recovers.
On January 31, She recovered and once again continued her training.
September 1, She sang "Bokura ga Ikiru MY ASIA" for the album Petit Best 3
April 18, She was part of a scandal in where she was seen multiple times with an unknown guy (Most likely from her school)
I actually heard reports about it during early March but I ignored it since she is 14 and still goes to school. Her school has boys and girls, she could have been working on anything in school. But this time during the report there was also a picture of her and the boy hugging and staying together until late night.
She was asked by the manager and she confirmed that she was going out with the guy without their parent's knowledge.
Since she undoubtly went out with the guy without any care about the public and how she could be recognized quickly, and considering shes only 14 years old and went out with a guy without her and his parent's knowledge we have sent her to the agency and made her work there and start from scratch even though she has not officially debuted yet.
Due to this scandal, it will take much longer for her to debut as a soloist since we made her start over again.
I'm sorry for carelessly going out and accepting his confession without my parents knowing anything at all.
Please forgive me.
I know I didn't hurt only myself, but the boy, Manager-san, Tsunku, My Parents and the fans.
There have been lots of scandals within Hello! Prject already and I just added to that, Truly, I love Hello! project with all my heart and I don't want people to look at it badly thinking that its bad to put them in because they end up in scandals, accidents due to practice, and everything else.
Im really, truly, sorry.
