    It's really really sad. I can't stop thinking about her. Graduation is a different thing. At least you can wish them the best but this.... I'm not sure how to handle this.

    Thanks for that, Matt, it's a nice video for sure.

    I recorded a cover of this song a while ago, but never put it up. May not be the style of some of you guys, but I've decided to upload it and dedicate it to Rinanan. It's a very sad but beautiful song, in my opinion, so it's very appropriate.

    It's hard to accept she's gone. I can only imagine how her family and friends must be feeling right now. My thoughts are with them.

    I haven't followed ebichu as close as momoclo and shachihoko, but I definitely liked Rinanan, and 18 is to young for anyone. I have been crushed by this ever since I heard about it last night. My heart goes out to all her friends, family, fans, and of course the other girls. I am not sure if I'd be able to go back to work after just seven days break with a job like idol....I wonder what will happen going forward.

    Sad. And a scary reminder of how fragile human life really is.

    I can't put this feeling into words. And I can't even really talk about it to anyone around me. So awful. I hope her family and the members are OK. Everyone here, as well, stay strong for her!

    I still can't believe. It's hard to accept. It's unfair to her.

    Yes.
    The last time I cried was when I heard the news of Karin Maruyama's death.
    That of course didn't come unexpected but it was so tragic due to her history and life-long fight

    Rina's death came so totally out of the blue that it's still mostly tears of disbelief and unwillingness to accept what happened

    I haven't followed Ebisu very closely at all, but this are very sad news. My thoughts go out to her family and friends, and all those who cared for her.

    I posted this at another Jpop forum where people were talking about Rina's death - I'll post it here, too...

    When I was going to the local community college in the town where I grew up, one of the girls in the crowd I hung out with died suddenly - one morning, I came to school, and people were in shocks, saying, "Monica died, just a few hours ago!" Apparently it was from a brain embolism, which was, I heard, the result of a congenital defect. She went to bed with a headache, woke up the morning feeling very ill, and was dead within a few hours. She was 18 or 19 at the time - about the same age as Rina.

    The fact that it was unexpected -- I don't even know if her family or doctors were aware of the underlying problem that caused the embolism -- did make a big difference for most of us who knew her. By that time, I think that most of us knew people who had died in ways that it was not hard to see coming - drug overdoses and other misadventures - and I suppose we'd become a little numb to that kind of sudden-but-not-unexpected death. But when Monica died, it just felt so wrong, and there was no way to be numb or hardend about it. This feels the same way.

    I'm still in shock. This is so sad and unexpected. Losing someone so young always seems unfair. I hope the best for her friends and family because this must trully be a terrible time for them.

    I don't even know what to say.

    Same here. Woke up in the morning and still in disbelief of her sudden passing. I keep thinking of how other members and her family must be feeling.

    I'm glad she got quite a few coverage on national level.

    Got this from Hello Online.

    Some reactions:

    "I can't believe it.

    It seems that Ebichu's Matsuno has passed away.

    'it seems'

    Because it happened so quickly, it doesn't even feel real.
    I wonder if the other Ebichu members and the fans feel the same?

    Matsuno has become an eternal idol.

    Fans of Matsuno, and all of the Ebichu Family, please, let us support Matsuno and Ebichu forever!

    Matsuno, from the bottom of my heart, I'm praying for your happiness in the next world."

    "Ebichu's Matsuno. No matter how hard I try, no matter how hard I try, no matter how hard I try, I can't put this into words. But I was doing a skit with her on stage just last week. And yesterday, I was supposed to be doing another in Osaka with her."

    "When I think about how her family, the other members, the staff, and her fans must feel, it seems like my heart is about to burst. At least, at the very least, please sleep peacefully."

    "Thinking while walking in the middle of the night. Matsuno Rinanan of course won't leave my head. Then, Kudo Kankuro sent me a LINE. He was thinking the same. It seems like I've unconsciously been groaning throughout the day. I wonder how the other Ebichu members are doing. We can't come to terms with it, either, though. Do your best, keep fighting, Ebichu."

    "It is so upsetting to hear the sudden news about Matsuno Rina. I remember that even on the set of Robosan, in the middle of a hot summer when the air conditioning had stopped, she was happily playing around, talking to the other members about ice cream and candy... The grief her family is feeling must be unfathomable. I express my deepest sympathies from the bottom of my heart."

    "My thoughts have stopped and it has gotten hard to breathe. I can't understand what's going on. What, why, is this a joke? Is it real? I just don't know. Those of you who know the situation are probably going through the same thing, my heart is spinning."

    "When you suddenly lose something precious to you, it feels like your chest is hollow. It will paralyze you, but in the end, I think that they give something to us. Like a piece of their soul, or, well, I don't know."

    "When I want to calm down, I listen to Bryan Eno. I thought about a lot of things today. About the everyday things not being everyday anymore, things I never imagined happening, but these things can happen to anyone. It's different from waiting for the shock to fade, but what we should do now, is treasure every thing, every person."

    "I just got news of the passing of Matsuno Rina, a member of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku who built up an amazing performance at Inazuma Rock Fest... It's such a shame. I wanted to see her come back to Inazuma Rock Fest so that I could see her grow more. I'm worried about the other members, too... Fans, please give them your support."



    These are just the ones I've seen so far.
