I guess she wanted to have a normal teenage life at that time?

A quick summary would be nice. :grin:

From my understanding:
-After the ASAYAN auditions, she wanted to go back to a normal life but then was put in MM。. She said it felt like she didn't know what was going on (at the time).
-They all got paid the same amount. The company took care of living and transportation expenses.
-It felt like, to her, the group didn't really get along and everyone saw each other as rivals.
-Apparently, Yuuko was the one who Asuka got on with the least, although Asuka says that that was most likely because of a difference in age and Asuka not understanding Yuuko's way of thinking despite realising now that Yuuko would compromise a lot.
-The official reason for leaving was for study, but she wasn't interested in going to school. She wanted to hang out in Harajuku all the time and didn't know what she wanted to do with her future.
-She felt out of place amongst the other members because she thought she wasn't being serious about the group as much.
-Tsunku tried to persuade her to stay in a conversation that lasted over an hour but he was using too many allegories and she had no idea what he was on about (lol).
-She quit high school in her first year and went on to work part-time at a bakery after that.
-She has no bad feelings about MM。's success with LOVE Machine, and when she saw the CMs she just thought "I wonder if I could've made a bit more money".
-3 years after her graduation from MM。she returned to high school (and graduated) and got a boyfriend.
-She met her husband, who's 3 years younger than her, at a nomikai (a drinking party type of thing) that her friend's work held.

So basically, nothing incriminating and things we mostly knew already. I think in the end she doesn't regret leaving but also realises it was mostly due to her being too young to understand what was happening around her.

A little more than half of the episode — from her introduction at 3:25 to the start of the cooking challenge at 14:26 — is all about her, her career to date as an idol, and her debut as a full-time solo talent. I think Hamada likes her.

Kamei Rina says she went to out eat hotpot with her older sister, Kamei Eri, for the first time in a while yesterday. She said it was the best hotpot they have eaten in a while.

The H!P Kids had a little party to celebrate their 15th anniversary after Momochi's last live ended. Momochi and Chisato were not at the party though. Risako had to block Hagiwara's face because she isn't part of Upfront anymore.

I'm always impressed by how quickly Japanese celebrities (I think the generalization can be made... H!P is the only real J-entertainment I keep track of anymore though so it might be an H!P thing) respect leaving the profession. It's a very seriously taken clean exit out.

Although... In Risako's case she literally took completely minimal effort to hide Maimai's face. Lol.

I think it could be an UpFront thing, cause she makes no effort in the instagram pic

^ The Instagram pic has been taken down; the link is now dead. That copy of the pic was re-uploaded to Imgur, presumably by Amped.

The instagram pic was from Nakky. She edited it and covered Hagiwara's face.

Hey look, Junjun is in another movie…

This one looks like it's a big deal, but given its title it's difficult to find more information. The best I can determine is that it's set during the Chinese Communist takeover of the Xinjiang Uyghur region, sometime between 1949 and 1955.

What! If the poster considered them private enough to not want them posted widely, then they shouldn't have posted them at all!! :/ Anyway, given that info, I'll refrain from posting pics or links to the pics. Sounds like they shouldn't have even made it to 2ch in the first place. :sad:

They're on H!O. And having seen them… yeah, no, they don't belong here. Personal photos taken in a women's restroom with other people (students! minors!) who are of no interest to H!P fandom.

In fact, posting photos taken in a public restroom might be a crime, depending on the circumstances and jurisdiction. Ask Dani Mathers.
