Asami Konno graduated today, july 23, from Morning Musume and Hello! Project, during the concert Hello! Project 2006 Summer ~Wonderful Hearts Land~. All the fans got their pink sticks to say goodbye to one of the most beloved members from the 5th generation of the group. Nevertheless, when the concert was finishing, Makoto Ogawa appeared near Asami Konno, dressed with the graduation outfit. In fact, before fans' amazement, Makoto Ogawa was graduated from Morning Musume, without prior announcement, since it was predicted for August. Good luck to both of them!
All I can say is wow. How I wish I was there.
