Statement from Inaba Manaka[14]
It has been already 3 months since I have announced my activities break to everyone...

I would like to thank you because during this pause, I received many comments, I made you worried.

To everyone, as well as to Country Girls members and to everyone from Hello! Project, I would like to apologize for making you worried.

At this occasion, I, Manaka Inaba, on this 4th of August,
have graduated from Country Girls.

After the announcement of my break, I announce you my sudden graduation,
I am really sorry for surprising you with this news.

To everyone who was waiting for my resumed activities,
Please accept my apologies.

I gave my everything so far into the medical treatment of the asthma, but there are still disappointing days
With the current condition now, I am not ready to continue the activities of going nation-wide,
However this condition is not always bad,
There are days when my physical condition stabilizes but,
The condition was depending on to the weather or on the days.

With such a condition, I cannot cause any more worry to everyone by receiving your support,
I think to avoid any hindrance at the group's activities, to not cause any problem to all the members,
The decision of this was the graduation, please forgive me.

And to all the members of Country Girls
Thank you so much...!!

As a member of Country Girls, I have experienced many things,
To meet all the fans is an important treasure for me.

Please everyone continue to support even more Country Girls from now as well!

Nothing has been decided concerning the future but, I, Manaka Inaba, think I have to be able to do something to pay back all the support I received from everyone.

While becoming indebted to everyone from the company office, I would like to think at myself from now on.

From the bottom of my heart, I am grateful to all everyone who has been involved with me.

Thank you so much.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She was the second Hello Pro Kenshuusei member who was in a non-Hello! Project idol group prior to joining.
  • She was the first Hello Pro Kenshuusei member to be from Hokkaido.
  • In an issue of Gekkan Entame, she was ranked the best dancer in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.

  • She wants to try singing "Uchouten LOVE" by S/mileage, and "Watashi ga Iu Mae ni Dakishimenakya ne" by Juice=Juice.
  • Her rival in Hello Pro Kenshuusei was Fujii Rio. As generation mates they had a sense of wanting to work hard together, but her dancing is powerful and they had been challenging each other to do better.[38]
  • She says that because she lives in Hokkaido, it was difficult for her to attend Hello Pro Kenshuusei lessons and events, so she put all her strength into the ones she could attend.[38]
  • In late 2013, Tsunku commented on Inaba: "Your dancing is amazingly good. Your legs are improving beautifully. For expressions you have a nice smile. Because you're from Hokkaido I don't think you'll be able to attend everything, so I hope that you'll watch videos in your normal life and regularly copy the dances and singing so as not to fall behind."[38]

  • She goes to karaoke to sing and dance on her own, and wants to go to karaoke again with Oda Sakura.[40]
  • She has loved shoes since she was little and would walk around in her mother's high heels.
  • She likes to wear clothes and makeup according to the season.
  • She is one of the few Hello! Project members to have "graduated" from a main group to then "debut" in another main group afterwards (graduated from Country Girls in August 2016 and debuted in Juice=Juice in June 2018). The first to do so was Ishikawa Rika.
