Biography[edit | edit source]

2012[edit | edit source]

On April 15th, Wakisaka Yurika joined BiS alongside Michibayashi Rio. Like Terashima Yufu, they began their activities promoting the group's previous single, IDOL, despite not actually appearing on it.

On July 18th, Wakisaka's debut single, PPCC was released.

From October 10th to November 28th, Wakisaka Yurika voiced herself alongside other members of BiS in the anime Backstage idol story. Also on October 10th, Wakisaka Yurika's only studio album, IDOL is DEAD, was released.

On December 28th, she and Pour Lui attempted to run a 100km marathon, which they both failed. The strain from the marathon aggravated a pre-existing ankle condition Wakisaka had, which led to fewer performances and eventually, her graduation. The music video for hitoribochi documented the marathon.

2013[edit | edit source]

On February 7th, Wakisaka Yurika announced her graduation from BiS, having been finding performances more and more difficult with her ankle condition.

Wakisaka Yurika's final single, BiSimulation, was released on March 13th. The single was dedicated to her time in BiS, with a limited edition cover showing only her face.

On March 16th, Wakisaka Yurika graduated from BiS at the ROAD TO BUDOKAN KOKUGIKAN "WHO KiLLED IDOL?" one man live and retired from entertainment.

2020[edit | edit source]

After a 7-year hiatus, Yurika re-emerged on Twitter in June. On June 30th, she announced her return to entertainment as a part of ASOBINEXT, a subsidiary of the ASOBISYSTEM agency.

Personal Life[edit | edit source]

After graduating from BiS, she has spent most of her time focusing on university studies.
