A kind girl who became an idol to support her best friend, Kotono Nagase. She embraces everyone around her with a cheerful smile. She has a calm and devoted personality, and she often supports people who are in trouble. Attracted to Kotono's honesty, they became best friends. When it comes to Kotono, she is not afraid to give her opinion to others.
|Thank you for your time today. I had the pleasure of interviewing Kotono Nagase-san the other day. You two are very close, aren't you?
Thank you for your time too! That's right. I spend a lot of time with Kotono-chan.
In the first year of junior high school. We were in the same class!
No, actually, I'm not like that. I just thought she was a scary child at first.
It all started with a little thing. I saw an unexpected side of Kotono-chan and I fell in love with her.
That's right! Despite her appearance, she has a lot of cute features. I was a bit lonely and she doesn't have many friends... but she...
Haha, I'm sorry... It's just that I tend to talk too much when it comes to Kotono-chan.
Yes. The ocean is nearby and the stars are beautiful. I like it very much.
It's a difficult question... Oh, but I do like my dorm rooftop now! The moon looks so beautiful from there!
A dream, huh? I haven't had many dreams like that. Of course, I do have them now, though!
When I was a little kid, I used to run around and play, but there was one kid who wouldn't join in with the others. Not that he was ignored, but he was a bit of a weakling. I got up the courage to talk to him, and they were very quick. In the end, that kid was the first one to show up every time. I remember that moment very well.
It's because I wanted to make Kotono-chan's dream come true with her...
Ehehe. I guess so. When I go home for lunch or when I go home.... We study together before tests and so on.
Kotono-chan can do it if she tries. She doesn't seem to be very interested in learning. I don't know if I'm good at it or not, but I like modern literature.
I've always liked stories. I like to imagine the feelings of the characters and the author.
I would like to write stories in my diary, but it's not easy. But I usually just write my daily life in my diary.
It's not interesting to hear that~. I'll keep it a secret.
I'm not very good at math. My head gets cluttered.
Yes, I've been trying to make my own recently, but it's been difficult...
I often make breakfast mainly with rice. The other day, I made boiled eggplant.
I love peaches!
I don't like bitter melon.
I like things like peach jelly. Especially the ones with big fruit in them!
Ehehe. It's peach juice. It's kind of embarrassing, isn't it?
Being on stage with Kotono-chan, I guess.
I have many. I can't keep up with the dances, or I stumble when moving around a bit. It's a frustration that I feel every day.
We all have to work together to make it look good. If I'm off by just a little bit, the dance looks completely different. I'm so busy with my own dancing that I can't keep my eyes on the prize.
What is it~? A tripod, maybe? You can't have one of us fall down, and if we all breathe together, we can make a big push.
There was a time when I woke up early in the morning by accident because I was feeling a bit anxious. I went to the studio to practice on my own before going to school; I ran into Kotono-chan and I thought she woke up early too. It's just a small thing, but I felt a bond with her.
Of course, it's me becoming the number one idol.
What is my ideal image of an idol? I don't have a concrete image of an idol yet, but I hope that our singing and dancing will help lift someone's spirits.
Being number one is a difficult thing to achieve. But I guess the most important thing is whether the audience is enjoying the show or not.
If the fans have high energy, I can use them as my own source of energy. That's what I told them.
Actually, I'm trying to figure it out myself... What do you think my strengths are?
Ah! I'm sorry I asked the opposite of what you wanted.... Thank you!
A rival~. But everyone at Hoshimi Pro could be a rival. Rivals are people who work together to improve each other's skills, aren't they? In that sense, I think we're good friends and rivals.
Up until the day before, I was so anxious, but when I got on the stage, I was so absorbed in the show.... It was a very special time.
It gives me a warm feeling and encourages me to do my best. That's the kind of place I want it to be.
A genre, huh? It's not really a genre, but I listen to a lot of female singer-songwriters' music. The lyrics resonate with me a lot and make me want to do my best.
"I'm here with you, and I'm gonna shine, I'm not alone anymore", I'd say. I also like the "If I'm with someone" and "If someone is here for me" parts, it makes me feel connected to everyone.
At first I thought the song was a bit dark, but after listening to the song several times, it wasn't like that at all. It sounds like a difficult song to dance to.
I wonder~. It's a light that lights up our road that we can't see the future. This song makes me feel like I can move forward.
I really think I'd be living a very normal high school life.
That's a difficult question! I'm currently searching for what an idol is for me. Even so, I think it's the kind of thing I was talking about before, the kind of thing that can make someone else feel better.
Thank you for your support! I get a lot of energy from everyone. I'm still a work in progress, but I'll do my best to give back properly, so please keep up the good work!
