Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku Member Rina Matsuno Passes Away After Sudden Illness

It has been a while since I have written any articles ,mostly because of time involved in producing a new idol dance/vocal group (Today is not the time or place to discuss such things) and songwriting ,I have just shifted to update idol news on our Facebook.

News such as this was not really how I wanted to return to article writing , but it cannot be helped.

18 year old Rina Matsuno of the popular Idol group Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku suddenly became unwell  forcing Rina to miss a Tuesday night concert in Osaka by the group.Rina was sent home to Tokyo to rest , however over the day and night Rina`s condition became worse .

Around 5a.m. Rina`s parents called 119 and requested an ambulance be sent to their home , it is being reported by media here in Tokyo that Rina was pronounced dead on arrival to the hospital.
Rina was one of the more popular singer/actress/models in the idol music genre ,having done child variety shows since being scouted for TV commercials in the first grade.
