It was announced over a week ago that S/mileage sub-member, Kosuga Fukuya, will be stopping all her activities as a S/mileage sub-member. While practicing for her first S/mileage concert she was diagnosed with acute anemia. Fukuya will be focusing on her treatment, and afterwards will officially join the Eggs.
II can’t really say that Fukuya is my favorite Smileage sub-member, since I don’t know much about her. But I do feel incredibly sorry for Fukuya. I can’t imagine what it feels like to have just fulfilled your dream to be an idol, only for it to be snatched away before you really even got a chance. She must be incredibly heartbroken. I also wonder if she’ll be able to be an Egg at all. Anemia isn’t a disease you get over. She’ll have it for the rest of her life, and will be weaker than other people because of it.
But whatever happens to Fukuya I wish her the best. Even if she does stay and Egg forever. Which would be a tragedy, since she did win the audition.
