It hurts just to write this.  
Well, no one else has yet posted the full list of retiring Sorasiennes in their journal... Probably because we're all still in denial. But I guess I'll do it.

Yucchi-san. Of all the upperclassmen, she was pretty high on my list of Likely to Retire. But her departure will bring down the count of original Soragumisei to... six? T______T

At irimachi yesterday, she went in alone.

Masami. Ever since the new top announcement I've been pretty worried about her. The new Phoenix summary only justified my fear.

She had three or four fans with her yesterday and looked beautiful and poised as always.

Asu-chan. I suppose it's about that time. But I will miss her and her flowered hats and her flat shoes. And I wasn't really ready for a mass exodus of 87ths.

When she went in yesterday, she looked like she had been crying a little.

Risa-chan. Every time I see her I love her more; I was really getting attached to her and now this.

She was accompanied by one fan yesterday and was being sweet as always.

Kanachin. I guess I can understand why she would choose this time to leave, but it seems a waste right when she'd gotten to her last year of shinkos... :(

Yesterday she went in with Seiko and Kuracchi.

Rabi-chan. Why? ;__; Such a sweet and cute girl, also in her last year of shinkos, and she's got at least one dedicated fan whom I've seen accompanying her a lot lately...

Either that person or someone else was with her yesterday.

Sakkun. Kind of saw this one coming, I guess, considering how she tends to look bored offstage and is virtually invisible onstage.

Yesterday she went in with Susshii-san. Kumichou-san was saying something that was making her laugh a lot. <3

Yes, I know, I went out of order.

Eriko. I just... I have no words. I was totally unprepared for this; I don't think anyone saw it coming. The hole that she will leave in Soragumi and in my heart is enormous.

I didn't see her at iri yesterday; her standby time was almost an hour earlier than Alice-chan's.

Thanks for posting the list, though I'm sure it was hard. I had heard about Eriko but I'm not familiar enough with the others to figure out their names without some help.

I hope your troupe gets some great new people and those that are left take this chance to really blossom and shine!

I sigh a sigh of sadness.

So did the announcement go up before iri? I'm a little confused about the timeline...

No, I was just reflecting on what I saw at irimachi the morning before the announcement.

This is probably an inappropriate remark, but when I saw the list yesterday, my initial emotion was a tremendous relief that a certain other name was not on it.

All this changing of the guard is very hard on a troupe, and on its fans. But there are still so many reasons to love and to take joy in one's troupe. I hope you're thinking of those things, too, as well as the rest.

Please take care of yourself. ♥

*hugs* I still can't really believe it, honestly. *clings to the rest of Soragumi*
