    Everyone should not worry, I also worried about Tokisen's future after Nagasaka Mako graduated, they also worked with 4 members for a while before adding new members. Now, they are doing well.

    And Shachi survived their best singer's exit as well
    Even used it to re-invent themselves :-)

    But in the Tokisen's case, FOR ME was very necessary the add of new members, Kanamin practically did not sing the songs, in Muteki no Uta she not even sing, just say a phrase at the end, of course, with the exit of Mako, they managed to hold on, but it was clear that the group was not 100%

    I guess they'll be adding members now, and they must do it as soon as possible, preferably at the end of the 29th concert.

    It's really sad, she's the leader. Like watching the pilot parachuting out of the plane, not a good sign whatever her reasons to leave may be.

    If I understand the natalie article correctly she says that she's grown up and wants to do things not being restricted as an idol
    Which I guess is a good enough reason

    On 4/29/2019, ROCK A JAPONICA will be holding a live concert called [ROCK A JAPONICA FRONTIER LIVE ~ Nakano Sun Plaza Saigou Idol Concert~] at Nakano Sun Plaza. It was announced that Uchiyama Ami will be withdrawing from the group and end her contract with the agency.

    On 4/23/2019, during the broadcast of FRESH LIVE, it was announced. "There are various things I want to experience apart from idol activities. This feeling has grown stronger every day and the gap just keeps closing. I don't want to lie forcing myself with doing these activities", says Uchiyama citing her reason for her withdrawal. "When I decided, it wasn't because I didn't like being in the group. Everyone's warm cheering and atmosphere, sharing the vibe with others makes me really happy. I love the fans and they're very important to me. Because of that, I've decided to leave it that while I still consider them important", said Uchiyama in tears. Before the broadcast, she had consulted with the staffs and members and quote those messages.

    On 4/29/2019, before the launch of their one man live, Uchiyama would like to meet and greet the fans in the lobby."I want to make this this final live the best, full of cheers, smiles and lovely sparkling event with everyone!", said Uchiyama with gusto when asked for her plans. The tickets and play guide will be on sale.

    I am personally saddened that both were leaving but Ruka affects me more because she didn't really have a choice due to her poor health.
    At least I still have my other favorite, Luna still around.
    If you're in Japan, go support their last concert as that formation!

    The setlist for the concert. They really went out with a bang.
    Last part says:
    "From members to Amipon
    From Amipon to everyone
    Ruttan appearance on stage
    End of MC
    They will be back on summer"

    Good to know that the remaining girls will come back
    I guess it's a good idea to do a restart without haste and develop something new instead of just hastily adding new members
