Rui has long ash gray hair and amber eyes. She wears a white captain hat with a emblem in the center, a white cape with gold lining, a primarily white and secondary gold dress, with thigh high high heel boots.
Rui is a genius idol who excels in all aspects of dance, singing and performance. In reality, however, she is a proven talent backed by overwhelming effort. She never stops moving forward, even when things get tough, in order to be recognized by someone.
|I look forward to working with you.
I don't get too nervous, but I do get a sense of urgency. It's rude not to give a proper answer.
To be honest, I don't think I have a very "student" life with the amount of time off I have from school.
No, that's not true. It's a class of people who are involved in the arts anyway.
I think I'm the one who likes studying. I feel like I grown up when I learn something new.
I love English.
I think it's quite fun to learn English and be able to communicate with more people.
I would. I'm too busy right now to go, but it would be fun to be able to communicate in English with people from abroad.
Yes... I'm not very good at art.
I do it at home or in between lessons, basically.
That's right. Thankfully, I'm sometimes approached by people, and I can cause trouble for other customers. But it's not as easy as you might think. I've never been noticed on a train.
Of course I do. I sometimes run from the station to the lesson studio when I'm training. But you wouldn't know if I was running, would you? Hmmm.
I always try to be the "Rui Tendo" idol at all times. Even when I'm doing a little shopping, there's no guarantee that my fans aren't watching me. I also pay attention to what I eat.
I always try to eat breakfast. I eat eggs, bacon, and white rice to be aware of what gives me proper energy and balance.
That's right. But I don't want to limit myself too much, because it would be too stressful, so I try not to overdo it.
I like chewy candy. A lot of people say it's unexpected for me. And I also like the nabe we sometimes have with TRINITYAiLE members.
There are no particular recipe. It's just what we feel like in the moment. I like to eat with all the members.
I spend most of my time training and maintaining my body. Occasionally, I have tea with Yu (Suzumura).
I would be lying if I said there wasn't anything. It's hard to confide in others, but I try not to think too much about it because I have no choice but to move on.
There is. The location.... I'm sorry, it's a secret. Regardless of the location, I feel comfortable just being together with Yu and Sumire (Okuyama).
The three of us just happened to be together this time around for our time off. I'm going to cook a dinner at home and we've been talking about eating together. It's a small thing, but I'm really looking forward to it.
I may have dreamed of being an idol, vaguely. I've always liked idols.
It's strange, but when I realized I wanted to be an idol, I knew I wanted to be an idol. I think that as I watched my idols, I naturally felt that I wanted to be one too.
There was a lot of them. I was floating around in the beginning. There were times when I was running on empty. But it was Yu who saved me from that.
Sorry, I'll keep that in my mind. It's an embarrassing story. The only thing I can say is that if it wasn't for Yu, I wouldn't be where I am today.
That's a difficult question. I perform with the feeling that I'm the best idol around, so I guess my answer is "idol performances"?
I like both.
I remember it. I was so excited that it was finally going to start. Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic.
There was a little bit of that. But when I saw the faces of Yuu and Sumire, I knew that I would be okay with them, so my nerves were blown away.
There are many moments like that. Like when I went back to the lesson room by myself after the lesson was over and we all went home separately, and I went back to the lesson room by myself to find the two of them there.... Even when Yu was about to go up on stage to hide her illness, Sumire and I noticed right away.
Is it a place where a lot of "feelings" come together? We have a strong belief in our audience and in us as well, because we stand on stage.
I consider all my idols to be rivals, not just anyone in particular.
Both Yu and Sumire. We have an unshakeable bond with each other.
Trust. It's a relationship where we trust and rely on each other.
I'm repeating myself earlier, but you must believe in the members. Then, you need to keep improving on yourself. Oh, I'm sorry, I said two things, not one. Fufu.
I thought it was a wonderful song that was very much like us. But with that in mind, we also started thinking at the same time about how we would perform in this song.
A cheering song, I guess. From us to you, and from you to us. It's a song that makes you feel that connection.
It's difficult to say. If I had to pick one, I'd have to say "Even in a difficult time when you feel like you're going to cry, this voice will smile at your side". It's full of our thoughts.
Flying to heights that no one else can reach... I want everyone to recognise us as top idols.
Idols are someone who never fail to work hard and can inspire anyone. And... someone who stands on stage with strong determination to overcome any obstacle.
Your voices are our strength. Thank you so much for your support. We will aim even higher so that we don't fail you. Please continue to support us.
