a person’s comment

I came to Kumamoto to gain promotion to B1, but I’m sorry I couldn’t do it.
I decided to leave Kumamoto and move on with my career.
Cheering Wolters Red gave me great strength and gave me the power to fight to the end in any situation.
And even off the court, I was touched by the warmth and love of the local community and the fans, and I came to love Kumamoto so much that I wanted to come back one day.
I feel sad about leaving Kumamoto, but I decided to do it myself.
I will do my best to make this decision of myself correctly, and to present a more mature image to everyone who supported me.
Thanks to everyone involved with Wolters.
We look forward to seeing you all again. Thank you very much.
