Morning Musume announces Risa’s graduation single

Morning Musume recently announced that they will be releasing their 49th single which will be the last single to feature Risa. The single is titled Renai Hunter and will be released on April 11th. Risa will be getting her own special version which will featured a solo cover of a past H!P song.

A lot of fans were worried that Pyoko Pyoko Ultra was going to be Risa’s graduation single. But it was pretty obvious that they would be able to squeeze out one last single. And they are. And Risa is getting her own graduation version so Risa fans can stop whining that it would be unfair if she doesn’t get one too.

The new single makes me pretty excited, the title just sounds amazing.  It sounds like it will have a very powerful, mature, and cool image. Which I would love since a song like that would suit Risa perfectly. But judging from the title they could still make it a very cutesy song. So, obviously it’s far too early to tell.

Another exciting aspect of this is just what song is Risa going to sing. Is it going to be Mr. Moonlight since it was her debut single? Or will it be Suki na Senpai since it was the 5th gen’s song on their first album? I was thinking it might be Manatsu no Kousen since that song just screams Risa to me. But she already did that song for Hello!Cover so I doubt it. Then I was thinking it could be Never Forget since that also screams Risa to me, but Yasuda Kei already got that song for her graduation single. Maybe it will be Yuugure Sakusen Kaigi since she sang it at the Rival Survival concert. They did say a cover of an H!P song, so that makes me think it’s not going to be a Morning Musume song. What do you guys think her cover will be?
