Proper use of "graduation" and "withdrawal"

In the early days, the expression "graduation" or "withdrawal" was used in most cases.[Annotation 11]Since 2001, the expression "graduation" has been officially used (goods, etc.), and the expression "graduation" is often used retroactively (names of graduated members, etc.).

The expression "graduation" itself has been used since that time by Fukuda, who first left the group, in a message calling for fans, and the year recorded in the autobiography "Another Asuka" published in 1999. The table says, "Morning Musume graduated and retired from the entertainment world."

As an example of proper use

  • The official book "Morning Musume" published in September 2007.In the chronology published in the "9th Anniversary Book", only Yaguchi and Fujimoto "withdraw" and the other members "graduate".

Enrollment status of each term member

  • All enrolled: 11th and 13th-15th

Remarks (leader, sub-leader related)

  • The first leader sold 5 CDs by hand and was decided after the major debut was decided.At that time, Iida said, "I want to be a leader," but as a result, Nakazawa decided.The reason I was chosen was "because I am the oldest"[42].
  • The sub-leader was founded in conjunction with Iida's inauguration as the second leader (April 2, 2001), and Yasuda was appointed as the first sub-leader.
  • Prior to taking office as Yasuda (when he was a leader in Nakazawa), the position of sub-leader was not announced.When she was enrolled in Ishiguro, she was the eldest after Nakazawa and was sometimes regarded as number two in terms of position, but she was not declared a sub-leader.Nakazawa is Morning Musume.In graduating from Iida and appointing Iida as the second leader, it is thought that he created a "sub-leader" post to treat Yasuda, who is the oldest member of the second term, and to entrust Iida's assistant.Yasuda graduated from the unit before Iida, but from Yaguchi to Arakaki, the sub-leader was also appointed as the leader, so it was considered to be "sub-leader = next leader (candidate)".
  • There was no sub-leader under the leader of Aragaki (from the interview with the February 2012 issue of the CD journal, Michishige's remarks.[43]).
  • "Morning Musume" held on May 2013, 5.Concert Tour 21 Spring Michishige ☆ Eleven SOUL ~ Reina Tanaka Graduation Anniversary ~ in Nippon Budokan ”, Tanaka proposed the revival of the sub-leader system for the first time in 2013 year, 1 months and 7 days, and Mizuki Fukumura in the 21th term I nominated Haruna Iikubo for the 9th term.The two sub-leaders are Morning Musume.It will be the first time.Iikubo's sub-leader is Morning Musume.It was one year, seven months and 10 days after joining the company.

Group organization

Member composition transition

Morning Musume.The biggest feature of is that the members repeatedly join, graduate or withdraw, which was unique to other female music groups at the time of formation.[Annotation 13][44][45].

In addition, the member composition of the group has the following two characteristics.

The number of members is in flux.
The minimum is 5 (the first is when it is formed, the second is from Kamei, Junjun, and Linlin graduation to the 1th term), and the maximum is 2 (from the 9th term to Yasuda graduation).
There is a big difference in the ages of the members.
At the time of formation, the difference was about 12 years old, the maximum was 15 years old (from joining the 4th term to graduating from Nakazawa), and the minimum was about 5 years old (from leaving Yaguchi to before joining the 7th term).

The average age as of June 2021, 12 is 14 years.

Group formation that repeats joining and withdrawing (graduation)

Morning Musume.Is officially stated as "a group that evolves by repeatedly joining and leaving (graduation)."The way to keep the group alive by repeating this member change is by music critics.Ichiro FukudaAs Tsunku ♂, "As a group that does not dissolve even if members withdraw,"プ エ ル ト リ コIdol group "Menudo (Menude) ”,” Was the beginning of Morning Musume.Tsunku ♂ at the "Memorial Meeting for Ichiro Fukuda" held on October 2003, 10, which led to the idea of ​​"Hello!"CondolenceRevealed from[49][50][51][52].

However, due to the situation in the TV program that appeared from 1997 to 1999, the remarks of Tsunku ♂ and members in the program, and the inconsistency with the MC of the concert, he joined and withdrew from the time of formation in 1997. There are many unclear points, such as whether a system that repeats (graduation) was actually considered, or whether the system had been established since its formation.

  • Later, Tsunku said, "Morning Musume was scheduled to disband in the red and white of that year (1998)" (interview with "Morning Musume x Tsunku", etc.).

Is the beginning.Mari Yaguchi was selected from the three additional members with an emphasis on voice compatibility. It also attracted attention as a project of "ASAYAN", and it became a successful example of the cycle of "enhancing the individuality of members and giving back to Morning Musume."

Following this success, "Petitmoni" was formed and Morning Musume.It will be a million seller following.The following "Minimoni." Is from the Hello!
