There is really no way to start this off other than by saying Nozomi will be departing from Alloy on March 31, 2017. She wrote out a message on her blog. She also sent out a short tweet. The saddest thing she says is that she will no longer pursue being an idol. We wish her the best in the future.
Alloy is now starting the search for someone to fill her spot. We hope they will be able to continue on, they are not that old of a group. It would be pretty crummy to see them end so soon.
