    Was interesting... I wonder if Katomina was doing this before the latest NF EP where MauMau and Mofu try to do ab work with those hanging straps? A roller'd be very similar if in the same pushup position:

    If she's trying to get her abs even flatter and more toned than before... :drool:

    Nani ka ga Iru Full MV

    Katomina got some great screentime in the MV (Much better then in Sekai wa Doko Made Aozora na no ka?). Plus she is a hidden center along with Moeka (which is also awesome).

    Some Screencaps of her in the MV

    Her Company in the AiKaBu Game has been doing pretty good.

    And she looks so cute with curly-ish hair <3 In one of her stories she posted that she was cutting her hair, right? I love this lenght for katomina, it really frames her face, but i'd love to see long-hair-katomina, i think she would look like a japanese princess, like mirurun <3

    ^ This is a cute song, almost HKTish in feel. And Katomina got some adorable Disney princess shots in, several seconds even. <3:approve:

    Since this was a coupling song... I was noticing though Hinatan is center, doesn't feel like she got as many closeups as the rest of the members, and not nearly as many as Ogiyuka got in the main single (though there she did get more than expected). Is this a standard thing with coupling MVs?

    Oh and can we take a moment to appreciate her with most of her bangs gone?? SHE LOOKS SO MATURE. <3 Imo at least......lol.
    Aristocratic, artistic, muscled, doofus-y, adorable, well-mannered, energetic Disney Princess. :3

    In a way, Katomina's kinda like... a girl jock. Now before you destroy me, hear me out. :^^;:

    Katomina was involved in sport since childhood, much like a gymnast, really. Temple of twirling, she was a child nun of this religion. Bitter defeats, sweaty, angry, exhausted, miserable workouts she still had to do. Yelled at by taskmaster coaches and trainers and snickered at by rivals daily. Long hours alone, tackling the weaknesses of her own body, and finding ways around them. This is what sport is... and that's what the best in a sport demand.

    So... now Katomina is in another temple, one also of many unwritten, figure-it-out-yourself rules, and many trapdoor pitfalls to excommunication. But it's a *much* looser environment, for which she has some tools which fit, and many she still has to carve and forge herself.

    I noticed in one quite interesting SR, that Katomina *almost* gave the whole internet a peek-a-boo somewhere she most certainly did not want to be broadcast. :eek: While she is a girl and has class, she didn't dwell on it like a few other SR 48G idols who've done the same thing. But why wasn't she more cognizant, and avoided it, then? Because well, she's been in front of thousands of strangers in a leotard for years; showing skin isn't a big deal for her. She just forgot about the camera for a fraction of a second. So it is with a lot of other things in idol life -- but she's seen so much stricter, harder, crueler... that she's like, mm hookaaaay... then munches on another very yummy -- is that cumin? -- french fry. <3

    This confidence, this bemused between-smirk-&-giggle, is because she's lived so long in a barren, pain-filled, lonely quest for perfection, each step of which forced her to find and cross new limits of emotional control... that hardly anything fazes her. Like when a UFC champ sees a drunk break a bottle at a rough bar... there's very little that barfly can do to make him not feel grateful he's not under some of his very, very good, but not champion, opponents.

    So a girl jock... but now instead of burning the child out of herself to reach a goal... she can now let it grow and blossom finally. And when you've earned great confidence in your physical abilities and understand them... it's quite relaxing (and gorgeous) to play around a little, making people happy, doing your best at something a little easier. She's earned it, after all <3

    I really loved Katomina's hair in this picture from her instagram story :cute:

    Also, in the video for "Nani ka ga Iru" they held up Q&A cards and on Katomina's it said "What is a type of guy you like?" and her answer was "Someone who makes me feel special.

    Seiji Rina, a Kenkyuusei, got the question "What is something that made your heart beat fast recently?" and her response was "Katomina's sleeping face" (#relatable)[hehe]

    Thanks for the correction ^^

    And speaking of Seiji and Katomina, they have teamed up as a comedy duo for a competition :) It was announced on the last episode of AKBingo

    ^ That oughta be fun... :approve:

    Reiji surprised me with her sense of humor in the NF! 'Ojishi' EP on Sado Island; hope it was that and other 'aha' moments, that made her want to compete. Katomina prolly wants this chance to get both some national name recognition, and broaden her experience portfolio. Even if they lose big, the experience isn't available to just anyone... it's probably offered to few outside the Japanese owarai community?

    That preview btw... was brutal. Looks like whoever's judging their skits (or a tough room?) took a big chunk out of Noepii :(

    Yep, AKBingo!'s latest EP, think it's #467?. And Reina's moment was in the last day for the Sado Island EP for Niigata Friend!. She was surprisingly funny throughout the two-EP 'arc'. :approve:
