Erepyon Is Back With A Solo Single

4 04 2012

Former AKB48 member dropped off the radar once she graduated from the group to go to London to study but she did promise that she’d be back in the entertainment business in Japan once she returned. Although she reopened her blog last year, it didn’t look like there was anything special planned for her until now that is as she’ll be releasing her debut solo single on June 13th with a track called Erepyon. Erena wrote the lyrics herself and the song will be used as the theme song for Fuji TV’s drama Legal High.

There will be 5 versions of the single. You’ll only be able to purchase one special version at Lawson stores. The tracklisting for each version looks like this:

I’m delighted that Erepyon is releasing a single. Before her graduation, she was one of my favorites in AKB48 and I was so sad to see her leave. Her song sounds fantastic.





Erepyon’s Final Event

5 11 2010

Erena Ono held one final event on November 3rd. It was a promotion for her AKB48 graduation book before she leaves Japan for her acting studies abroad. The PB contains photos from her 4 and a half years as an idol. A DVD featuring her audition for AKB48, 1st performance for Team K and other stuff was also released. Even though her official blog closed down yesterday, I’m hopeful that Erepyon will start another one soon once she settles down in her new home for the next couple of years. Her destination for her acting studies is in fact the UK. I’m a but surprised with this as I always thought she’d head off to the US. I’m taking she’ll be based in London which will be great for UK AKB48 fans who on the off-chance might bump into her on the capital city’s streets.

All the best to you Erena and who knows I might see you around London someday.





A Snippet From Erepyon’s Final Performance

Have a look at this tearjerking clip from Erepyon’s final performance yesterday at the AKB48 Theater. It really makes me feel sad watching it.





Goodbye Erepyon!

27 09 2010

Today marked the final day for Erena Ono as a member of AKB48. I can’t help but feel sad for the departure of one of my favorite members. Erepyon was an important team player for AKB48 and one of the original Team K members. I think her loss will be felt right through the group. I’m really finding it hard that she’s gone, it hasn’t hit me until now that she’s no longer a part of AKB48. I’m so disappointed that I never got to see her in action at the AKB48 Theater as part of Team K and never got a chance to shake her hand at an event.

In her final performance at the AKB48 Theater, new and old Team K members came to celebrate her last day.

Good luck in your future career Erepyon and I hope you become a great actress. I will definitely miss you a lot. Thank you for being in AKB48 and sharing all the great memories with the fans. You’ll never be forgotten.





Erepyon To Graduate Next Week

20 09 2010

If you’re a Erena Ono fan and in Japan right now and want to try and see her perform before she leaves AKB48 then you’ve only got 7 days left as her graduation date has been announced. She will be leaving on Monday September 27th after a Team K performance at the AKB48 Theater.

Her destination after she graduates is still unknown. All we do know is she still wants to be an actress and is going abroad to study. Apparently a trip abroad is scheduled to take place in October to look at a couple of acting schools.





Erena Ono In New Movie

13 03 2010

It seems that AKB48’s Erena Ono is starring in a movie that will change the perception of how fans see her. Everybody knows that Erepyon is a cute girl-next-door loli but in a movie called Sankaku in which she has one of the leading roles she’ll be a part of a love triangle between a man and 2 sisters. Erepyon will play the younger sister and judging by the trailer you’ll see below she’ll be walking around in her underwear and whispering sweet nothings in the man’s ear!! Apparently she also has a daring bathing scene!

Yuko Oshima has a tiny role as a waitress. The trailer makes the movie look interesting enough.
