[I started this post last year around August, but since I was in the second month of a new and high-stress job, I never finished it. I know Haruna-Derp-a-thon has already graduated, so here’s a small tribute a couple months late.]
*sigh* Isn’t this a little too soon?
This is the graduation that everybody expected when Ogata announced hers a couple months ago. Honestly, people have been expecting this one for a few years now. Our sweet, sweet, honey, Derp-master, Iikubo Haruna is graduating from Momusu.
I feel like in the last few years, Iikubo has slipped further and further into the background. I don’t just mean the old-standard complaint of “she gets no lines” (which is true, when you ignore album tracks, or spoken lines in singles), but even when I watched dvd magazines and such. For a while there, I didn’t really see her.
I don’t know if that’s just my memory playing tricks or if maybe she decided to back up a bit and let the new members forward.
But I really missed ‘sweet, sweet, honey-time’.
