With the announcement of Risa Niigaki graduating in May 2012 that created big news and shocked her fans, Morning Musume fans have had to deal with another member that has graduated from her activities with the group. Reina Tanaka, a sixth generation member of the group since 2003 announced her decision to graduate on May 21, 2013.  I know that this is old news but it is still newsworthy.

Reina Tanaka is on stage during the day of her graduation on May 21, 2013. She is one happy person! She served for 10 years as a member of Morning Musume.

She wants to now focus on her band Lovendor. Any Morning Musume member that graduates or leaves the group seems to make news. It was also announced that Mizuki Fukumura and Haruna Iikubo will both be the sub-leaders of Morning Musume. On January 19, 2013, Reina and current Morning Musume leader Sayumi Michishige who calls herself the cutest member of Morning Musume both celebrated their 10 year anniversary with the group.

But this has been a challenging year for Tanaka so far as she has had to deal with some health issues. She revealed in her blog in February that she had come down with a duodenal ulcer and esophagitis. She said that she would be taking medicines and requiring surgery to heal herself. On March 23, she had experienced a painful ringing in her ears and the next day, she was forced to miss a concert. Her own band had to do without her. But Reina has recovered and I am sure she is excited about this next phase of her career. Reina Tanaka was born on November 11, 1989 in Fukuoka, Japan. Reina Tanaka is also no longer associated with the label Hello! Project. The motto that Reina lives by is “If you’re allowed to be yourself, you won’t do bad things to people. Don’t do things to people that you wouldn’t want for people to do to you.” Source: http://www.generasia.com/wiki/Tanaka_Reina.

Note: there will be a post about this 6th generation member coming up soon as it is now 2017.
