2017 has just started and I already got a thunder striking news. Ray, a well-known singer who performed many theme songs of many anime as well announced her graduation from being an artist in her blog a few hours ago.
Lemme just copy paste the stuffs from her blog here and put the translation. (Damn… I need to practice my Japanese language… really). Hopefully it is correct…

Time for a good bye in the next few months, eh? Sadly…. Ray was one of my favorite singer. Her voice is so unique and cute. She attracted my attention because of her voice. From her radio show, Ray-channel. I wouldn’t notice her if she doesn’t have that unique and cute voice. She is small and cute. Looks very attractive for me but it was her voice that capture my heart the most.  So… her graduation is something really really sad for me…

Ray-chan, I hope you wouldn’t go to AV path like a few popular artists did. You aren’t a sexual object. You are more precious than that. I wish you the best of luck in the new path you choose.ray_1
