Comments by Judging Panel and Members[]

  • Comments from Taisei (ANGERME's recording director and member of the judging panel):
    • "She's obviously pretty, but her biggest charm is her pureness. Her eyes power is also strong, although they became weak from so much crying, but she surely has a mysterious charm. As for singing, her technique isn't good yet as expected, but her base was the best from among everyone else. Her voice is also beautiful."
  • Comments from members:
    • Wada Ayaka: "Before entering to our room to meet us for the first time, she was crying. When we saw that, we thought "Those are angel tears indeed." While crying, she said "I'm so happy although I look sad crying right now, but I will do my best."
