Juice=Juice member Inaba Manaka recently received surgery recently to treat vocal chord nodules.
Inaba Manaka’s throat has been in poor condition for some time. After consulting with a doctor, it was discovered that she had vocal chord nodules. Once she consulted with family and her doctors, it was decided that she would have surgery the next day.
As a result of her surgery, she will be unable to perform in the Hello! Project 20th Anniversary!! Hello! Project COUNTDOWN PARTY 2018 ~GOOD BYE & HELLO!~ concert which will be held on December 31st.
She will also be limiting herself to dancing in the Winter concert tour titled Hello! Project 20th Anniversary!! Hello! Project 2019 WINTER ~YOU & I/NEW AGE~ which will be taking place from January 2nd.
Her return to singing will be determined after consulting with her doctor.
Inaba Manaka is a talented idol that is the personification of everything good and innocent with the world. So when we got news that she underwent vocal chord surgery recently it was pretty concerning. Thankfully, it seems like everything went well and all that is left to do is to recover and let the body heal.
So, while we might not get to hear her voice for some time, it’s great that she did get her condition addressed to ensure that she is healthy. Get better soon Manaka!
