  • She is a fan of S/mileage and Morning Musume.

  • She wants people to notice her dancing.
  • In the March 2014 issue of Gekkan Entame, she was ranked the best at MC and most reliable in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.[5]
  • She joined Hello Pro Kenshuusei because she longed to be an idol since she was little. Since joining, she has come to love singing and dancing more.
  • For her, the hardest thing about joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei was when she couldn't sing something and when her Kenshuusei kouhai debuted before her.
  • On a rainy day she would go to a pet shop and watch the puppies, or sing the song "I WISH" by Morning Musume.
  • When she went on a trip to Disney, she bought Michishige Sayumi a Daisy Duck T-shirt.
  • She participated in the Morning Musume 9th Generation Audition and later joined Hello Pro Kenshuusei.
  • In Team Okai she covered Iikubo Haruna.
  • She was jealous of Kaneko Rie and Murota Mizuki when they were chosen to be backdancers for Michishige Sayumi.
  • She wanted to try singing "Shabondama" by Morning Musume.
  • Her rival in Hello Pro Kenshuusei was Hamaura Ayano
  • Her dream is to debut in Hello! Project. She's loved Morning Musume for a long time, and would be happy to join a new unit. In UTB+ Vol. 22 released on October 9, 2014 she said that her dream is to go on a world tour.
  • She doesn't have much self-confidence. Every time she looks around her and sees people more skilled than her, she gets down on herself.
  • Tsunku's comments: "Growing your skill as a singer is your fastest route. It might be good to copy a Western style of singing or something like that. If you can make your impressions of them good, then your singing will get better just as much. Your dancing has gotten good. Your facial expressions are also good."
  • She is the only one from her Hello Pro Kenshuusei generation that did not debut in Kobushi Factory.
