I was thinking of making a separate post for my thoughts but I was just coming up blank. Last night it was announced that Matsuno Rina of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku had died to a sudden illness. She was only 18.

I really don’t know what to say – I’m in absolute shock. Rina was young, healthy, and there was no indication this would happen. My thoughts go out to Rina’s family, friends, and the other members of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku. My thoughts also go out to Rina’s fans, who are grieving as well.

The only song that came to mind and that I’ve been listening to and crying about is Te wo Tsunagou, one of Ebichu’s sweetest, kindest songs.

  1. One of the English articles that reported on this stated that she’s an only child and was scouted by Stardust in the first grade-She pretty much knew 3Bjunior and Ebichu her whole life. I can’t imagine how intensely hurt they all must feel.

    • Yeah, she was in Minitia Bears before moving to Ebichu several years ago. It’s hard to imagine how difficult this must be for all the other members in Stardust and Ebichu in particular.
