Fairies have announced the departure of member Miria Fujita.
According to her announcement, she decided to leave the group to focus on her studies. The group will continue with only 5 members.
It appears that her graduation from the group was immediate with her profile being removed from the site (although her Twitter and blog are still available as of now) and her no longer taking part in the group’s upcoming concert at Zepp Tokyo on February 19th.
However, this move is somewhat expected seeing as how most of their latest releases seem to concentrate on only Momoka and Miki (check out their latest single Cross Road), essentially making Fairies a duo with backup dancers.
Her move to focus on her education is a wise one but it’s hard to ignore the fact that they have lost a talented member.
We wish Miria Fujita the best of luck with her studies!
