A Possible Return
The latest edition of Friday magazine has an interview with Kago Ai in which she appologises for her wrongdoings last February. It is evident from the pictures how much weight Kago has lost. When asked UFA said they were thinking of letting Kago return. Though they do not know when or how. This is very exciting news. Read a more in-depth article accompanied by pictures at Ikimasshoi.
Update: From this article, on the Jpop.com forums it seems Kago has been working at UFA since late January, serving tea and such like. It appears this was to get her back into the company, all be it slowly. It also appears from the fuller artcile that a return is a very good possibility. Let’s hope so.
