Stardust has reported that Kanna Arihara has bunions and has withdrawn from C-ute for an indefinite amount of time. She will miss their forthcoming concert tour and the promotional duties for their forthcoming single Bye, Bye, Bye!😦 Well I hope she recovers quickly and isn’t in too much pain. What a shame though (for me). Yes allow me to be self-indulgent for a moment. I’m a very recent convert to C-ute. My interest only really started around the time of Forever Love. However I’ve quickly become a fan. I’ve been really liking the singles I’ve caught up on as well as liking the pv’s too (which is always a nice bonus). As well as that I recently purchased their third album and will purchase their fourth just as soon as Buono’s second album is available as an overseas version at YesAsia (well you have to spend a certain amount to get free postage so I’m forced to wait). Now if you click on the Favourites page up top you’ll see my three favourite C-ute members listed. Number 1 is Kanna. I was looking forward to seeing her promoting their upcoming single (which is due out 15th April). It’d be the first new single released since I became a fan. I was also hoping to see her on a a live dvd released at some stage. I know there have been plenty already released but I kind of want one with their latest stuff on (especially Forever Love which is a great pop song). It looks like now the promotional work and any live shows will be minus C-ute’s cutest. Bye, bye, bye indeed (bad pun. I know and I’m sorry but I just can’t help myself sometimes). I really hope however that the pv for the new single has already been shot. Either way I hope Kanna gets well soon. Knowing how hard these idols work perhaps she’ll enjoy the rest if nothing else!
