She also has a conspicuous character.‘¢ Otsuka Aina (14) ‘“ She was one of the finalists for Morning Musume’s 9th generation member audition. She has a good quality voice.‘¢ Uemura Akari (14) ‘“ She stayed up to the third round for Morning Musume’s 9th generation member audition, but her dancing and singing are still clumsy which makes you laugh. She has a strong character and I have a high expectation in her.‘¢ Kanazawa Tomoko (17) ‘“ She was one of the members that sang Berryz Kobo×℃-ute’s “Cho HAPPY SONG (single ver.)‘ during the “DAM★Tomo Karaoke Contest.‘ Her singing, smiles, and personality caught my attention, and she joined in Hello! Pro Kenshuusei. Though she just joined, and still a rookie, I chose her.‘¢ Miyazaki Yuka (18) ‘“ She is not a part of Hello!
