Breaking News : ℃-ute will breakup in June 2017 after the SSA performance
Today, ℃-ute announced that they will breakup after the Saitama Super Arena performance that is scheduled in June 2017.
In February of this year, when all the members became 20 years old. There had been discussions about the future of ℃-ute and each member.
At that time, all the members of ℃-ute aimed to their goal, doing their best as a group.
And last month, they have been told about the decision of a Saitama Super Arena performance in June of next year.
After this, there has been a discussion: “For us, ℃-ute, this Saitama Super Arena is our goal, and until this day, we will rush with all our power and after we want to walk respectively in our own path”.
There have been talks about 3 options they had about what will happen of ℃-ute then.
There was a choice of the members concerning the option “Continuing the activities of the group after the graduation of Hello! Project”, but they wanted ℃-ute to stay the ℃-ute of Hello! Project.
Then with ℃-ute aiming with all their power and progressing to reach their goal, by completing this performance at Saitama Super Arena, they thought they would be puffed up with pride so they considered a “breakup” and not at a “suspension of activities”.
Until now, they pulled themselves Hello! Project as an elder sisters group of the project.
After this dissolution, the 5 members will be by themselves, and will follow their new start but we would like to continue to watch at them.
Concerning the activities from now, ℃-ute main activity will be to be in direct contact with many people during lives, etc.
Since there will be a period of around 3 months by thinking of rehearsals, performances schedule, ℃-ute will not take part of the Hello! Project tour which will start from January 2017.
From now on, the detailed schedule and the individual activities after the breakup will be announced as soon as there will be decided.
There will be the Nippon Budokan performance on September 5th as well as ℃-ute no Hi (“℃-ute’s day”). Furthermore, an autumn tour and a new single release will be scheduled.
Thank you for your continued support of Hello! Project and ℃-ute.
Today, we have an announcement for everyone.
In June next year, we, ℃-ute, will realize the dream of performing at Saitama Super Arena.
And this stage will be our last one because we will break up after.
This year on February, when all the members were at least 20 years old, we talked for the group and each respectively about what we can do… concerning the future.
Since this moment, we concretely thought at the future of the group, with each advancing in her path and understanding each other.
However, because especially, “As ℃-ute, we still did not realize our dream! We cannot stop until we perform at our dreaming stage, Saitama Super Arena!”, we have decided to face this dream and to fight for it.
After that, our feelings became as one during our activities, and, one day, we have been said that our performance at Saitama Super Arena was decided.
We were really, really happy.
And at the same time, the dream of this big goal we were pursuing and kept on arrived… it was quite an indescribably feeling.
When Saitama Super Arena’s performance had been decided, the 5 of us talked with the staff of the company, and we concluded on the fact that at the end of Saitama Super Arena, we will fulfill our individual goals and dreams after that.
Concerning the future, there were 3 options.
First one, graduating from Hello! Project and as ℃-ute, continuing activities in a different stance.
Second one, suspension of activities.
And the third one is the one we decided, breaking up.
℃-ute started in Hello! Project and grew up.
℃-ute is part of Hello! Project.
If there had not been Hello! Project, we would not have come this far.
We wanted ℃-ute to stay the ℃-ute of Hello! Project.
During 11 years, by facing this dream, and because all the members continued to kept running, when the performance at Saitama Super Arena will be over, we can say with confidence “Now, there is no regret! With all our might, we have fulfilled ℃-ute!” !
The 5 of us talked proactively for a long time and that rather a break of activities, we decided on breaking up.
℃-ute has been formed on June 2005 so next year on June 11th, it will become 12 years.
There had been good times, bad times, and because there had always been all the fans supporting us, from our debut with the members we arrived this far 12 years later.
Our feeling of gratitude will really never end.
There are currently many promising kohai (juniors) in Hello! Project.
Even after breaking up, we will follow for sure Hello! Project and we are convinced it will lead.
What we inherited from our senpai (seniors), the time came we will transmit it and pass it to our kohai.
Every year, Hello! Project Concert tour takes place in summer and winter and the current “Hello! Project 2016 SUMMER 〜Sunshine Parade～/〜Rainbow Carnival 〜” is the last one we will take part in.
Until the Saitama Super Arena performance, ℃-ute members will as much as possible do their activities together and send their gratitude nationwide to all the fans.
Please support ℃-ute until the end.
And please continue to support Hello! Project from now on as well.
