It was recently revealed that Hello!Project Egg members Sengoku Minami and Kikkawa Yuu have ended their Egg training. Neither of which is graduating from H!P or UFA, it was just merely announced that they have completed their Egg training. And it was also stated that Kikkawa Yuu will be the opening act for the Hello!Project 2011 Winter Concert.Of course this shocking and unexpected announcement has left fans utterly confused. And with good reason. Eggs have left, graduated, and been transferred to other agencies, but never has an Egg just completed her training. And there’s honestly a couple of different things this could mean.
Either Minami and Yuu are leaving the entertainment business, which is highly unlikely. Or joining Morning Musume. Which is extremely unlikely because both girls are over the age limit at ages 18 and 19. So, there’s really only 2 other possibilities. They are either joining a new group/groups or are going solo. And honestly with Yuu opening for the winter concert it kinda seems like she is going solo. No one ever opens H!P concerts to begin with, and an opening is simply what it’s called. You open the concert by singing and dancing. Now why would Yuu be doing this unless she was going to further her career in H!P. I mean it makes sense. After gaining fans from both the 8th gen auditions and Milky Way, Yuu has a nice little fanbase. Yuu has both the fans and talent to go solo. Or perhaps lead a new Egg group in H!P. But to mean all signs point to solo for Yuu. As for Minami will do, your guess is as good as mine. Despite being an Ongaku Gatas member Minami isn’t really all that popular, or that great of a singer. I honestly have no idea what to even guess she’d be up to.
All we can do now it wait for the winter concert to start on January 2nd. With Yuu opening and the 9th generation Morning Musume members being announced then, it’s definitely leading up to be one of the most eventful H!P concerts in a while.
