Can someone educate me on this one? I'm not sure how old is Hana, but debuting in 2000 and able to retire nine years later, will she be receiving a pension from this company or was the use of the word "retire" misused in this article?

Old Takarazuka stars never retire, they just end up in fake marriages to in-the-closet actors... :)

Lonely, middle-aged single OL's across this great nation must have been devastated at the news.

She will go into stage, movie or TV stardom. Most of them do. This just means she is retiring from performing with the Takarazuka group. I don't follow Takarazuka members, so I have no idea who she is anyway.
