S/mileage sub-member Kosuga Fuyuka drops out due to health


Less than a month after the Hello! Project idol group S/mileage added 5 new “sub-members” to its lineup, one of them is dropping out of the group.

13-year-old Kosuga Fuyuka was suffering from poor health during rehearsals for the group’s tour, and a medical examination revealed that she has severe anemia. She will need several months of treatment to recover, after which she is expected to resume her entertainment career as a Hello! Pro Egg.

S/mileage is now down to 7 girls (3 members and 4 sub-members), since former member Ogawa Saki (14) also left the group around the end of last month. The group is already set to release their next single “Tachiagaaru” on September 28.
