Comment by Sengoku Minami
|To everyone who always supports us, fights and perspires with us during lives, thank you so much.
I, Sengoku Minami, have decided to graduate from Up Up Girls (Kakko Kari). I followed my dream in Up Up Girls (Kakko Kari), just facing forward, and challenging without stopping. However, for a while I continued performing with leg and throat injuries, and it always annoyed and tormented me. Without a body that can keep up, I cannot give satisfying performances, so it vexed me and made me cry, and I was afraid to stand in public. Anyway, I love singing and dancing, so with the warm support of the members and all the cheers that came from the heart of the Up Up Girls Family, I have been able to get this far. With such conflicts in my mind, when I heard about the performance of the Nippon Budokan, I once again thought about my future. At this time, I thought of another dream. Before joining the group I wanted to act. Inside me, I always had this love for plays, and wanted to one day expend this passion. So, there was this part in me that was frustrated, and it made me worried. Until now, I always walked on the same road with the 6 other members. They supported me, but from now on, I would like to challenge myself and my dreams. Becoming 26 years old will be a bigger challenge, but I have decided to stand alone. From now on as well, to show to everyone how I will face any kind of challenge, with all my might, I will push myself by facing forward to Up Up Girls! From now on, I will spend all my energy during my remaining months in the group, but, more than this, I want to be with all of you!
Sengoku had her last live as member of Up Up Girls (Kakko Kari), on September 15th and graduated from the group on the next day at her graduation ceremony event.
