Kago Ai is Back In Showbiz?!




Just caught this on WHG.

Kago Ai is BACK??!!
From what we have up there, as televised in TBS, apparently she has joined an agency in Kansai area, reportedly in her hometown, Nara. Eyewitnesses comments that this comeback is a bit too soon, as she had just been fired only a short while ago. Can anyone reading this or anyone who had caught the news on TV help confirm please?




Now.... from Aibon's firing till today, what I've hearing about with regards to rumours on Aibon's whereabouts, is that Aibon's mom have been going around looking for an agency to accept her daughter. Frantically. It's difficult, and we all should understand why. But this means that Aibon's mom had wanted her child to get back to showbiz. I've also read that the man involved in a relationship scandal with Aibon, Ishimoto of SOMA cafe, was hounded by paparazzi and is starting to get annoyed. He had responded angrily when approached with questions by the journalists. Now he is in the midst of preparing to file a lawsuit against them.

Wait... this can't be right....

With all this happening... should we discard the speculation that Aibon wanted to quit, get married and be a stay-at-home mom? And I will have to throw my guess out the window, that Aibon had orchestrated this scandal to quit UFA?
And all this while... she was caught doing her smoking business... merely because she was just negligent and careless?!

What has become of this world.....?



I'm still scavenging for more information.......

Awesome... maybe Tsunku will take her into TNX... and revive W.... I wish...

But Kago's drastic decision gave us some insight into UFA. UFA is really strict compared to agencies here in north america. -.- They're quite old fashioned, even Johnny's shows a little more lee-way. Most of their older members are married. Japan needs a Paris Hilton to desensitize them to scandals >_> it's working here...

Julia said...

WHAT ON EARTH?! O_O

Kiri said...

Ehh!? I'd very much like if this rumour was true, I'd love to see Kago work without the constraints of UFA.

It won't be with TNX, Tsunku wouldn't touch her, he's under UFA's jurisdiction. Though I may eat my words, I doubt it.

I hope this rumour has some truth to it...

Cookie Holiday said...

Oh please let this be true...I really wasn't happy with the decision that was taking regarding Tsuji's career and this would make things so much better.

wu-san said...

man, thanks for the updates...

don't know what to think really...

O_O

paul.thomas said...

That's really good to hear. Fingers crossed we'll be hearing from her in the near future!! I can't wait

arashi said...

O_o I will be glad to see Aibon back in some capacity, even if it's not with UFA! An interesting development to be sure, please keep us updated!

fcpremix14 said...

Please let this not be some joke -_-''

I bet Tsunku would want to take her back, but like kiri said, he's under UFA's jurisdiction (which makes me think of blaming that Yamazaki dude).

I wonder if she'll be making appearances on just local Kansai TV/Entertainment shows...or if she'll sing again.

Gyaaaahh too many thoughts. I'm confoosed O_o

After I made this post, I went to bed. Woke this morning, expecting the entire world erupting in excitement over this news..... but nope. Everything is quiet quiet quiet. The major news sites are also quiet quiet quiet. Either TBS had gotten themselves a super exclusive news that no one else has.... or their reporters are drunk. Bleh... In any case, I'm counting on the press and media to find out more... and QUICK!

Anna said...

Here's what I'm thinkin right now

Aibon want something she can't have.

First she couldn't smoke. She smoked. Then she can't have a bf. She did.

Then she gets fired and loses her singing career at H!P.

She gets another chance.

O_O So confusing.

Ayumi said...

The way all this is going, there might have been something fishy abot her being with that guy (I don't want to remember his name) when the paprazzi found her...

Maybe it was a setup? Would Aibon really let someone talk for her like that? You'd think she'd try some to explain herself. Perhaps it was the same people who might've set her up for the smoking scandal (I'm convinced it was meant to be a one time thing).

In a sense, whatever company picked Aibon up saw that this talent was one you can't pass up. When one of UFA's girls is let go, you would think someone would take her quickly. despite the fact that there was a scandal or two, you might be able to create a clean slate by having the perfect release or something.

I just hope she's not trying to do anything crazy.

And I hope UFA can find out that they lost something irreplacable.

I have to admit that I never saw a single release from Aibon; I've only been a fan for about a year. Hopefully this is good news for the diehard Aibon fans!

Thanks for this news~ Didn't see it on H!O or the other blogs...!

jim hak said...

Damn. I was all in on the semi-evil marriage-minded mastermind theory. It was somewhat beautiful in a way. (My epic poem biopic is RUINED.)

Then again, I like to hear her sing again as I think she's only really gotta good the last couple years.

Then again...I hope he songs are good. This could be tragedy yet!

Xacur said...

Man, I hope we could see her some time, it don't matter if we have to wait 'till she gets 20.
And i don't care about the agency, I just wanna see her.

what about, that her mother wants her to continue but she really wanted to quit? I mean that would be a possibility, tho yeah I dun really believe that anyway .. I guess

Xacur said...

I would be very funny if that was the case, but I don't think so.
Aibon is an adult (or almost) and maybe she can take her own desisions, I think.
I just would like to know what's what she wants...

Noncha said...

If she's singing again I think her popularity will just plummet on the spot... UFA, Tsuji, cuteness and most importantly fans made her. She's already destroyed the only things she'd once had...

Of course if she wants to come back i'm all for, but it's not going to be the same "Aibon" we knew in H!P. She won't be associated with them. Probably won't even be carrying that nickname anymore..

C.J Phua said...

Yeah.

I guess her fan base is in tatters now.

gackt-kun said...

She is like a cherry blossom (SAKURA) that will bloom soon....who knows. The one that stands out of the rest. ... "nee sakura mankai sukisugiru wa"...remember that song? That was the part that she sang :-P Just wanna hear her sing once more...soon. Thank s Jin for the news. At least we heard something about her.

Xacur said...

Her Fanbase can increase again, that's why they make promotion.
I don't see the problem, even if she restart from zero it woldn't be a restart from nothing.
She got the talent, she can do it, I don't see the problem. Not everybody in japan or asia are like mowotas.

Graham (Aust) said...

I think it will all come down to the quality of her work. The Music. The personality she already has. If she does come back I will certainly give her a chance. Not by comparing the new work to H!P, but in its own right. I wish her all the best.

Mick a.k.a. jinryuichi said...

Btw... if you guys receive an SPAM mail about Aibon debuting for AV (Adult Video) movies, please do not believe it. Be reminded that it is only SPAM, and nothing more.

I've even seen blog websites aptly named "Kago Ai smoking scandal", but the insides are about some dude's essay about cooking tools and apparatus.

ugh. frankly i wish she'd just leave showbiz period. i don't see how this could even make her look good in anyone's eyes. she screwed up with H!P one time, and then on the eve of making it again, she knowingly and willingly screwed up again. now she's looking for work, pretending to be serious about this whole idol thing? p-shaw.

she needs to wake up. and i hope this new "road" will be long, hard, and perilous. i hate how we should bend over and kiss her ass for how she approached H!P. She practically took all she stood for in H!P and laughed at it. She smoked. She most likely slept with some 40-yr-old-pr0n chump. And we should want to see her back? H!P should be said about the asset that they lost? what? Aibon should have been grateful enough not to screw up again when she did it the first time. why are we pointing fingers and condemning UF* when she did this to herself.

i think Aibon and her mom are selfish brats. how many times does she need to realize that she needs to wake up? after she's suspended/fired a third time?

look at the guys from NewS that got caught underage drinking. They're with Johnnys, the biggest name in idol entertainment period. They got suspended, they got legal stuff to work with, however, they announced that after a year's hiatus of the group that they would come back as understudies, like Aibon was. However, they haven't even gotten the chance to tell us when they'll come back as full fledged Johnnys members. they're just doing the same office crap Aibon's been doing. The guys charged with this underage stuff had been taken away from show biz for much longer than Aibon has, and if they're able and willing and grateful enough to wait for Johnny to say "go" again like they have been, i don't see how it was just soooooooooo much a burden for Aibon to do it either. UFA gave her a frickin second chance and she blew it.

if she doesn't believe in miracle second chances like that, given from the second most popular idol company in Japan, then i don't think being weatherwoman for Kansai tv will help her. That girl needs discipline.

I'm gonna have to agree with the previous comment. Big Aibon fan, but she was way out of line.

Xacur said...

I think the problem is taken this Idol stuff so serious.
Please, they are humans.
This is biznes, no religion.
I can't imagine how can someone get offended by something someone does, someone that don't even know personally.
If you don't want to support an Idol, then just don't do it.

i agree with everything this guy said. why the heck are you people blaming ufa? aibon is the one that failed not once, but twice as an idol. and her second offense was one horribly flagrant enough to ruin her idol image and reputation.

When we will know whether it back come (thus it again music makes) or not?!

Anonymous said...

mmmmh. all i can say is.. aibon is spoiled by herself X''D and her mom lol.
she gets everything she wants, which is no good. ah aibon is so smart 8D

Sakura said...

wow so many aibon bashers...maybe she did screw up or maybe she didnt. no one knows what shes thinking. she could have wanted to be a stay home mom and her mom didnt approve or something. or maybe her mom wants to be greedy, or maybe she wants her daughter to continue singing because she has real talent.
i think those of u that happen to start hating aibon should just stop worrying about her then and leave her to her true fans. true fans would stay by her side no matter what she chooses. and everyone would have to agree with me when i say aibon has talent. so im really looking forward to what she has install for us. if its singing, dancing, acting, anything. ill always continue to support kago.

Mick a.k.a. jinryuichi said...

As I mentioned before and on previous posts, Kago is careless, and she lack professionalism. Honestly, a comeback at this point would be difficult for her.

But still, I'm still curious to know how her life pans out in the end. I'm interested to know how an agency is able make use her tainted portfolio and scarred reputation, and devise a comeback plan.
Kago will get haters, that's okay and understandable. But would you not pick up the newspaper and read if you saw Kago's name on the headlines?

Kago has betrayed us fans, yes... but I still care..... and I still want to know...

Anonymous said...

ah i think i'm a bit late with my comment here but just thought i'd say something. sure shes messed up twice and has thus been brought down from the pedestal for many fans but what we have to understand is shes young, and was restricted by too many rules, she was essentially a young celebrity and young celebrities elsewhere get away with a lot more. they were petty little things that got her fired, if she wants to go back into the idol world her true fans should respect her wishes and give her a fair try when she does whatever shes going to be doing from now on. feeling betrayed at what she did is just stupid as everyone makes mistakes and when was being human(aka having faults) a trait that should be shunned

Anonymous said...

I pray and hope she comes back to showbiz!!!! Its not fare that she got fired for smoking, but Tsuji gets to remain in H!P evan after she gets knocked up.... I miss Kago Chan.

David said...

Was anyone able to confirm this? There's a revert war happening on Kago's wikipedia page over whether it's fact or rumor.

Nothing in the above pics say she is back in show biz. The text says she is in Nara and planning to work in an office there.
