Statement from Iikubo Haruna[4][22]
I, Iikubo Haruna, with this year's autumn tour

will be graduating from Morning Musume。'18 and Hello!Project.

Last year in September, Morning Musume。 welcomed its 20th Anniversary, along with spending the 20th anniversary year,
I ended up thinking about not just Morning Musume。's future but my own future as well.

As a group, doing activities and concerts are the most fun,
Even saying 「concerts」, it’s not just the song and dance, it's MC and song performing too
Everything is a performance, including concerts.

Other than singing and dancing,
I like plays too,
I like talking on the radio,
I like introducing manga,
I like fashion,
I like overseas,
I like connecting with people,
there's lots I want to do, dreams too, really there's lots.

I know it's greedy.
But, this, all of it, getting to know the things I like, it's because I had Morning Musume。.
Morning Musume。 for me, this world's infinite possibilities, hope, and love, I learned about it.

And time is finite too.

What is it that I want to challenge myself with most right now?
When I think about it there were lots I want to challenge myself with.

This year, I'm going to be 24.
So I can do the things I want to challenge myself with,
with this timing, going solo, I felt I want to challenge myself to many more things.

After graduating as 「Iikubo Haruna」, I feel I want to continue doing my best in the entertainment world.
I might not get satisfying results for all the challenges but,
for everyone supporting me, I'll do my best so I can make lots of announcements!

With my time left, with the members and all the fans, I want to treasure the time even more, I want to increase my memory album of 「Morning Musume。」.

And after graduating too I'll focus on getting your love so, please continue to support me forever!

Personal Life[edit | edit source]

When Haruna was born, her parents were both 19 years old.[55] Her mother was a model for a couple of years. Her grandmother is a florist. She is the oldest of three daughters. She calls her first sister who was born in 1998[56] the "gyaru",[57] and her second sister who is about 9 years younger the "otaku".[58] On December 2, 2018, her first sister gave birth to a child[59] who she will raise as a single mother.[60] Iikubo's family has two males cats, a Maine Coon named Rai-kun (ライくん) and a Ragdoll named Silky (シルキー).[61] She also had a hamster named Rana-chan (ラナちゃん) who passed away in December 2016.[62]

Despite being born in November during the fall season, Iikubo's mother chose the Haruna (春, haru, meaning "spring") because it sounds cute.[67][68] Her mother also had trouble choosing between Haruna or Haruka because of the character Haruka in 1994 TV drama Tokyo Daigaku Monogatari who she thought was cute.[68] Since she was also a fan of Nakamori Akina at the time, her mother took the "na" (菜) from Akina (明菜) for it to become Haruna in the end.[68]

  • Harunan (はるなん): Official nickname, given her since joining Morning Musume. Used by members and fans.

  • She said that when she was in elementary school, she always drew pictures of Michishige Sayumi, Niigaki Risa, and herself.
  • Her Morning Musume audition number was 287.
  • Kudo Haruka accidentally called her "Meshi" due to Kudo forgetting her nickname and misreading the first kanji of Iikubo (飯; ii) written on her concert shirt.[70]

  • She said she wrote Morning Musume as a high school career choice.

  • She was the second Morning Musume member to change her member color in 2012. The first was Ikuta Erina.
  • Iikubo was raised in a household where her parents both liked manga, which got her into it at a young age. She likes reading shounen ("manly") manga, such as Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, but she also likes shoujo manga, which include Kimi ni Todoke and Ao Haru Ride
  • She considered Fukumura Mizuki her biggest rival.
  • If she could hypnotize anyone, she would hypnotize Michishige Sayumi by putting her to sleep and taking a picture of her sleeping face.
  • Tsunku commented about her: "She keeps growing! With talking and even as a celebrity, she keeps growing. She tries hard in singing and dancing as well, and if she just keeps this up even more, she'll surely look different soon, too. The more leveling up she does, the more stable her place in showbiz will be, as well."[71]
  • Her mom gave her a bottle of champagne with gold flakes as a gift for her 20th birthday. Haruna later said that she drank it with her mom, and that it tasted bitter.

  • If she could be reborn as someone else, she would be Fujimoto Miki because she seems to have an easy-going life, she is popular, her looks are more than just cute, and she has a great singing voice.[63]
  • She thinks she is the biggest manga otaku in Hello! Project. Although 13th generation member Kaga Kaede's hobbies are also manga, anime, and video games, Iikubo believes she won't lose to her because she has been reading over 100 ongoing series.[63]
  • If she did not become an idol, she believes she would have become a NEET, then eventually an otaku NEET living as a hikikomori. Iikubo says she is relieved her parents allowed her to audition for Morning Musume.[63]
