    @admiraltolokus It's from Ep 123, 150701 ^^

    Here a little update on a relatively big job for her!

    If you follow her somewhat, you might know that she really likes fishing and sometimes posts about her fishing trips with her dad, her dog ect. Like here.

    But now she had an interview for a Kyushu fishing newspaper.
    And even better, recently they decided to give her a regular series in the newspaper!

    Really good news. Even more so because it's something specific to her.
    Lets hope someone in Japan picks it up.

    Jupi, her trusted dog, passed away today. I translated her short post and included some Jupi related links.

    That is so sad. I always admire when someone has a big dog because of the additional maintenance and care that they need. I think that's one of the reasons why Mina loves her dog so much. She took her dog everywhere, and I always felt happy seeing Mina post on her G+ the fishing trips she had with Jupi.

    Minazou ranked at the preliminary
    #69
    (Not at below 80, but way more above)
    I'm really happy for that.
    It's a dream is she can keep that position till the end.

    I wish I could spend more for votes.

    Hey guys, Minazou was in a recent HKT48 no Odekake episode that I subbed, so definitely check it out. It'll give you an idea of her thoughts on SSK and her relationships with kouhais. Enjoy!

    Yeah! If people didn't know, she goes fishing on open sea about once a month for her Fishing News column. Whe possible she streams it on SR too lol.

    Some other updates. She was actually the very front row in a Bside on Bagutte, Kiss ga Tosugiru yo with Riinu and Mao.
    115.jpg o19201440p (19).jpg

    And there was Lovetan's grad, which was very emotional for her as Lovetan was basically her best friend in HKT and vice-versa. Something that grew over the last 1,5 year while being in KIV. Lovetan often called Mina her boyfriend lol.

    Lastly, this. She was selected to be in that SSK "100 People to watch out for" book this year!
    She talked about it on G+:

    I was kinda shocked, but after the initial surprise I guess getting rank 90 last year at the end has something to do with it. But still, seeing where she comes from (1st gen KKS for ages) it feels even more special.
    I hope she gets above 80 this time.

    You know I think what would be cool for her?Is that if she don't manage to be model,she could do a tv show like this french guy that go around the world and do fishing!I would like her to be able to go abroad(mostly here in Canada to be honest [hehe]) to do a fishing trip if she wanted too!

    Mina wont particiapte in the SSK, but it's not unexpected as she's been talking a lot about doing things her own way. She has quite some jobs related to fishing for a non-senbatsu. Wants to work on self-development.

    Her on her regular fishing newspaper feature:

    Her after MC'ing at a fishing convention:

    And some pics from her Twitter and Insta:

    Btw her profile now only has 'Mina' as nickname. She kinda doesn't like 'Minazou' anymore, and hasn't since early 2016.

    I hope she does better in this than she has ever done in anything HKT48 related.
    She just gave that whole introduction in Korean!! Impressive....

    Only problem is... everything that would make her appealing to a Korean audience is undermined by the fact that there are actual Korean girls in the mix. So the Koreans won't vote for her because she isn't Korean and the Japanese fans have never supported her. She would be so good as a bridge, but... it is going to require Korean viewers deciding they want to vote for a Japanese girl who looks Korean and can speak Korean.
