Country Girls have announced that Inaba Manaka has graduated from the group.
According to the release, it seems like this is due to medical treatment she has been going through which put her on haitus a while back.
As many might know, since her move to Tokyo, her asthma and breathing problems have been suffering. With all of the high activity performances that an idol does combined with the traveling that would be needed across Japan, it seems like the best option for her health.
There is some hope, since there seems to be a mention that she will do some other kind of activities and may remain in Up-Front as she receives her medical treatment.
You can read her full statement below through Up-Front Link’s Facebook post.
Best of luck Inaba, we look forward to seeing you again!
