The official Twitter account for Enbound, Inc.'s Onsen Musume (Hot Spring Girls) project announced on Friday that Mayu Yoshioka will take the place of Ayaka Imamura as the character Mahiro Iizaka (pictured right). Imamura's agency announced on Friday that she will retire from the entertainment industry at the end of the month due to her worsening health.
The Onsen Musume idol project features hot spring guardian deities who form an idol group. Enbound first announced the project in 2016, and it has spawned manga, single CDs, and animated music videos.
