Thank you for your support for Hello! Project and Morning Musume。'18.

Haruna Ogata from Morning Musume。'18 will graduate from Morning Musume。'18 and Hello! Project after their 20th Anniversary concert tour 2018 Spring ~We are MORNING MUSUME。~.

She had wished for continuing to a university and taken an entrance exam when she was 3rd-year student in 2017, but it was not possible to pass the examination. After 1 year, she has continued studying and took examinations for a university and a junior college. In the middle of March, she pass the examination for a junior college and decided to continue.

After we discussed her future activity with her and parents, it turned out that it is hard to continue her activity since she will have her class from morning until evening in the junior college and she wishes to continue her study to a university after she finishes her junior college. Therefore, we have reached this conclusion for her future. We would like to see her off for her best future.

The last act for her will be June 19th and 20th at Nippon Budokan, the last day of their concert tour. She will not appear at "Engeki Joshibu "Pharaoh's Tomb ~Snake King Sneferu" to start on June 1st. We apologize for our sudden announcement and thank you for your understandings for her happy result of her continuing to the junior college. We appreciate for your support for Haruna Ogata from Morning Musume。'18.

Statement from Ogata Haruna[13][14]
This is Haruna Ogata. I will graduate from Morning Musume。'18 and Hello! Project after their 20th Anniversary concert tour 2018 Spring ~We are MORNING MUSUME。~.

I have tried my best for dilivering smile and power to as many fans as possible through Morning Musume。's activity. Since last year I have started getting offered for my solo works, more variety of activity and involved with more people. It was always very rewarding that we have achieved something or we got many message or smile from our fans.

However, I started to consider my own future as well and couldn't give up my continuing to a university.

I have tried studying for the examination concurrently with my Morning Musume。activity. I took general examination instead of special one because I wanted to try as a private person. Then I passed the examination for a junior college.

When the junior college announced their curriculum, I got to face the difficulties to balance my activity and study. Since I have wished to study fully in my junior college and continue to a university, I discussed with my management about my wish for graduating from Morning Musume。and concentrating on my study.

The management and my parents understood my decision and support for it.

I won't spoil my big decisions and will try my best for my new goal.

I deeply apologize for my sudden announcement at this timing when our tour had started because I had to wait for the result from my examination.

I will do my best with all my strength until June 20th for all of you fans supporting us.

Thank you for all your support for Haruna Ogata and Morning Musume。'18.

Her family has a pet dog named Alf.[23]

Prior to joining Hello! Project, Ogata attended Doushisha Kouri Junior and High School (同志社香里中学校・高等学校),[24] a private school in Neyagawa, Osaka. When Ogata joined Morning Musume in September 2014, she was a first year high school student.[1] She graduated from high school on March 8, 2017.[25]
