May 25, 2019 - Takeuchi Akari and Kawamura Ayano announced as ANGERME's next leader and sub-leader
ANGERME leader Wada Ayaka, who will be graduating from the group and Hello! Project on June 18, announced her successor on stage of the ANGERME Concert Tour 2019 Haru ~Rinnetenshou~ night performance in Chiba on May 25.
2nd generation member and sub-leader Takeuchi Akari was chosen as the next leader of ANGERME. In addition, 6th generation member Kawamura Ayano will become a new sub-leader, joining Nakanishi Kana who has been a sub-leader alongside Takeuchi since 2015.
The selection of Kawamura was a surprise due to succession in Hello! Project and especially Morning Musume typically being based on member seniority, in which Kawamura is currently third from the bottom in ANGERME. However, Wada declared that seniority is not a rule in ANGERME and wants each member, not just the older ones, to think of taking action on their own instead of completely relying on someone else to do it. With that in mind, she chose Kawamura as a sub-leader. Nakanishi agreed with this decision, calling Kawamura a reliable hard-worker who understands the ins and outs of the group.
Due to age and career history not being important in ANGERME, Wada saw the creation of a new leadership system as a great opportunity and necessity to the group, and she hopes it will be kept for future generations.

May 16, 2019 - Asakura Kiki and Niinuma Kisora take a break from activities
On May 8, it was announced that Tsubaki Factory member Asakura Kiki would be taking a break from her activities due to back pain which is suspected to be symptoms of a lumbar disc herniation that she had been diagnosed with back in 2017.
As a result, Asakura will be absent from the rest of Tsubaki Factory Live Tour 2019 Haru・Ranman and from the upcoming musical starring Tsubaki Factory, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 6 Gaiden ~Tasogare no Kamen~, where she was to play the lead role.
Only about a week later, on May 16, it was announced that Niinuma Kisora would also be taking a short break from activities. She had fallen down stairs on her way to work and was diagnosed with a tailbone fracture and a buttock contusion at the hospital, which will take one month for her to recover from. Just like Asakura, Niinuma will be absent from the rest of Tsubaki Factory's spring live tour and from their upcoming musical.
