While the relationship between Japanese Idols and their fans isn’t always… the best, long time idol singer Eri Arisaka has shown just how sweet and supportive it can be for both sides.
As reported by SoraNews24, the beloved Idol will be holding a concert for one of her fans, a 55-year-old who went by the nickname Okkyan. A constant presence at Arisaka’s events, he nearly attended all of her concerts but suddenly stopped.
The idol noticing his absence, decided to seek him out, finding out from neighbors he died from a condition that damaged his arteries. And stacking on the terrible news, she was informed that he had no funeral as he had no friends or family known of. The Idol decided to take it upon herself to give her fan a send-off, alongside idol Flowered Gem who he was also a fan of.
With the concert planned for April 11th in Tokyo, this is a sweet send-off from an idol to a fan.
