    Maybe its the Japanese culture to apologize for anything and everything but I'm sick of all the unnecessary apologies, none of these ladies have ANYTHING to apologize about, and this crap about "inconveniencing fans" WTF!!

    if its proven Maho was assaulted and her home broken into, the two losers that did so need to be charged and prosecuted and not have management kissing their butts like its all Maho's fault.

    So are you saying that she is sorry for "not living up to her status" as senior member in regards to having comforting words in the face of this incident? I feel bad that she thinks that it is her responsibilty, this situation makes a victim out if her as well and nobody could find words to make sense of it or relief that it wont happen again.

    @Don I think she's sorry because of there rumor that the culprit is also NGT member who asked those 2 guys to attack Mahohon. So as the most senior and powerful member she felt the responsibility to apologize to fans. This scandal might cause internal war between NGT fans, even right now the situation is worrisome. Without any prove and just speculation Japanese fans been attacking Tano Ayaka and Nishigata Marina, Indonesian fans are accusing Nakai Rika. This might hurt NGT in the future.

    @Name** I slightly revise your comment, please check:

    Nah, they're just protecting the girls because she's probably management's slxt. If they say Maho is right and (whoever it is) leaves then whose gonna suxk their dixks?

    As an American, I find it distressing that this poor girl didn't get the support from management that seemed like a ''no-brainer'' and that she was the one having to issue the opening round of apologies. Japanese culture, to many Westerners, can feel so cringe-worthy.
