Mitsui Aika has been diagnosed with left ankle bone fracture.
After the Morning Musume concert this past weekend Aika complained of pain in her left foot, after which she went to the hospital where she was diagnosed with the injury on 5/9.
Mitsui will be out of events for at least 8 weeks where she will be examined again afterwards.
The following is a list of the events she will miss:
６/２０(月) STAR digio presentsモーニング娘。初夏の快進撃スペシャル
Even though Mitsui will be out for a about 2 months I am glad to see that the injury she was diagnosed with isn’t major and that she will hopefully be able to perform once again soon after she gets a chance to rest up.
As was mentioned before Mitsui will attend the events but she won’t be able to do any dancing or anything similar in order to rest up, which is a relief since that means that she will be able to appear without having to miss out on the events that are planned.
It seems that Mitsui hasn’t had the best of luck when it comes to injuries (she has had quite a few in the past years) but she always comes back with full force and gives fans a chance to see her great personality, and most likely this will be one of those times as well so I look forward to hearing about her recovery and how she is doing in the next few weeks.
Hopefully we get an update from the members or H!P once she is better.
Get well soon Aika!
