    Story about her fashion brand

    Graduated from AKB 48 on May 12 and launched a fashion brand "haluhiroine" produced by Mako Kojima , who is active in talents and models , in collaboration with Press Blog Inc. this fall .

    Product sales began in mid-September on our EC site "STRIPE CLUB". Prior to the brand's debut, orders for general merchandise were sold on June 4 (Tuesday). Also, from September 7th (Saturday), we will hold a POP UP SHOP, where Kojima Mako will also attend at Laforet Harajuku.

    haluhiroine is an apparel brand produced by Kojima Mako, who has received strong support from female fans for its life-size charm not to be decorated. The brand is filled with the idea that "the desire to be a heroine is fulfilled".

    Incorporating femininity with materials and details, it has become a lineup that enjoys autumn fashion, such as a distinctive silhouette that looks up in style and an original floral dress and flare skirt.

    Can this be related to a very good friend who she photographed lately ?
    Mako is so sweet.
    (Or just spring ?)

    Congratulations,Makotin,in your graduation!!!!!!!.Is so hard to believe she graduated already,I´m remembering a lot of her moments in AKB,when she was a KKS and did a charity LOD,when The three musketeers were formed, when she debuted in Team 4,centered Seijun Philosophy, debuted in Tentoumu Chu, joined Team K and when she has been going between both teams. Let´s not forget her characters in Sailor Zombie or Majisuka Gakuen.
    I remember when 14th generation was promoted....
    So many great moments, I will miss her smile in the group <3<3<3<3<3.
    She is the first member that I posted a comment in the first page of her thread and is hard to believe she graduated now,but congratulations,Mako!!!.
    I love her plans for a fashion brand and as youtuber, I already suscribed to her channel.
    Her graduation dress is so beautiful,so happy to see again Miki and Naachan together with her in her last performance.

    I'm not sure if that was the intended meaning but I translated 'haru hiroine' to "spring heroine". Considering she spelled it halu instead of haru in romaji, I'm not too sure anymore now, but that connection is probably still gonna stick with me.

    Congratulations on your graduation and good luck to the future <3

    Plus a news story with lots of pics, including the picture off the wall.

    "Yuihan sent a letter to Mako's graduation stage, which was read by Miichan. Mako missed her presence.

    "A graduation album made by the members and a bouquet of sunflowers are presented, and Minegishi starts reading a letter from Yui Yokoyama who had a stage performance and was unable to rush, saying that "a letter has been received from a certain person." When asked after surprise and joy, Mako said "I really wanted Yokoyama Yui and Takahashi Juri to be here,"

    Her speech:

    Thank you very much for opening such a wonderful graduation show. I have been in AKB 48 for about 7 years , and there are a lot of years I have not been able to get along well, and I support them all the same without hesitation, making sure that everyone has a place to stay, meaning I am an idol All the fans made it. Sometimes I was disappointed, but your voice was really encouraging. It is often said that I stand strongly and I can not stand at all, but everyone's smile is my energy and I am a smile, so I am really grateful that I am from now on I also want to take care of sharing there. Thank you very much for supporting me as AKB 48 , for meeting me, thank you for the feeling that I am thankful to you from now on, I think that I want to connect with everyone by cherishing the edge, thank you very much, from now on Thank you.

    It come from Finnish where Halu means 'desire'. Heroine is heroine so it means 'Wish to be heroine'.

    (Will be posting the entire speech translation tmr (Japan time) which describe the name)

    https://twitter.com/chan__31/status/1127598337866100736

    ==========================
    公演後の家族ごはん(笑) 真子がこの顔でずっと笑ってくれていたら、それでいいのです。おめでとう、おめでとう。 本当に素敵な女性になったね〜 ますます綺麗になってね。 プレゼントしたピアス、似合いすぎてる

    -----------------------------------------------
    Family Rice after the performance (laughs) If Mako is smiling all the way with this face, it is good. Congratulations, congratulations. You've become a really nice woman! Become more and more beautiful. The earrings I gave you, they look too cute.

    And when you ask me, which set of earrings it was? .... I really have no idea :)
    I thought looking at pics from earlier today would tell me, but Mako-chan must have worn 6 different sets ;)

    Congrats for the graduation Kojimako! <3 it's weird to think she is a graduated member now (and the thread title change >.<) I still remember when she was KKS, and the times of Tentoumu Chu! and Team 4. I really miss those times ;_; I also loved when she got pushed as a pair with Naanya. it's great how much Kojimako did in AKB and it looks like she has a lot of plans after graduation, with the Youtube channel and her fashion brand! I wish her luck and success! <3
