Gambatte Yuukarin~! [頑張ってね, 前田憂佳]

Today will be Yuukarin's graduation from Hello!Project and S/mileage.
Check the whole post after the break!

Two months ago, Yuuka announced her graduation which will be today, and commented..
Thank you for always supporting me.I, Maeda Yuuka, as of 2011/12/31, will be graduating from Smileage and Hello! Project.Just the other day at our event, the 4 sub members became official members which made me really happy, but at the same time made me realize that it was this timing that I had to use to tell you all something very important.Since becoming a high school student, I have been unable to keep up with my Smileage work and school at the same time and it has bothered me a great deal. I started to think about my future and realized that my desire to attend a university had grown a lot over time. I was wondering if, at this rate, if I would be able to handle both school work and Smileage, I was really only able to give a half-hearted effort on both things… and was always getting help from other people, and I really disliked that part about me. I thought to myself “Things aren’t going to work out if it keeps going like this”.I need to work a lot harder if I want to attend a university. But that had always been just talk, up til now nothing had really changed…If I let these feelings continue, it would not be fair to the other members, nor to all the fans that support me.I thought a lot about it. I may not be very bright but I put all my energy into thinking about this… and came up with this as the only possible option.As of now with the four new members joining, it has been a joy to spend every day with the members. To the original members, to the new members, and to all of you who have always supported me, I am very very grateful.Although it may be sad, we have a new single featuring the 7 of us coming out on 12/28, and I will be working my hardest ever to make this the best one yet!I am very grateful to so many people, and hope to really enjoy these remaining 2 months, and finish with a smile in the Smileage way!Please continue to support Smileage from here on after.2011-10-25 Smileage Maeda Yuuka 
Because of that, we're going to make it special even we can't attend to her last stage..
Few days ago, the H!P fanpage and the blog invited fans to join for our Yuukarin Gambatte Video tribute, and it was a success for everyone..

Also, we asked fans to send a message, and here it is!

I really love this video, it shows Yuuka's performance together with the other eggs..

Watching this one makes me really think that Yuuka really improved, staff are right about her nee, she improving and improving..

Reading her blogpost during her birthday really touch my heart, I'm so happy hearing that fans did it to her, as her birthday present.. I'm so glad.. :)
Honestly, I'm not really a BIG fan of her, but I admire her because of her unique talent.. and I'm willing to support every idol in H!P because I love the whole family.. and it made me really sad and so shocked that she'll be graduating, since I never ever expect it.. It's too early isn't it? But I understand that she really want to fulfill her dream in entering the university, so let's support her to everything she decides..

Anyways, Yuukarin, congratulations! and otsukare sama deshita~!
We all love you and we will always be here to support you!

Big thanks to Norikazu-san for translating the message and the description, to the uploaders of the video, and to the fans who helped us this tribute to be a success.. Thank you so much!

Yuukarin Omedetou!
