Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She was in acting club at her school, however she had little confidence in acting, so she wanted to become an idol instead.
  • She wanted to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei because she had been going to Morning Musume lives and wanted to join Hello! Project too.
  • She thinks she won't lose to any other member in her smile and power.

  • She wants to try singing "Kimi Sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai" by Morning Musume.

  • Tsunku's comments: "Let's go further with your dancing. But you do have some sensuality in your expressions. Don't give up halfway through, let's follow through decisively until the end. You're developing rapidly in that regard, so work on your dancing first, and then your singing."
