Former Country Girls member Inaba Manaka has joined Juice=Juice.
As many are aware, Inaba Manaka left Country Girls in August 2016 as a result of her asthma. She took a break from performing in order to recover before coming back as the leader of Hello Pro Kenshuusei Hokkaido in 2017. From there her activities have been monitored to make sure that she doesn’t have any issues while performing.
Thankfully it seems like her asthma has improved to a point where she can perform like before and we get the rather surprising news that she has joined Juice=Juice.
The big question many still have is what her status is with Country Girls. Despite performing every once in a while and being relatively quiet, this group is still active. Seeing her make a return there would be fun, although the news of her joining Juice=Juice is already amazing enough.
Welcome to Juice=Juice Inaba Manaka!
