    Okay, this girl is great on stage. Looks-wise she reminds me a lot of Ariyasu Momoka (former Momoclo) She is a barrel of energy, and quite outgoing. I am going to be rooting for her!

    I watched her showroom this morning, and she's really cute [hehe] the chat got slow, so i said something like "hello from america" (lol) and she got so excited and started introducing herself in English, and a few of us ended up helping her pronounce a new word. It was adorable lol, honestly the most fun I've had in a showroom in a long time. She did some really cute karaoke too! Her voice is pretty good, she has some trouble with pitch but she nailed Beginner even though I thought her voice would be too cutesy for that lol. Definitely keeping an eye on her from now on~

    Quick google search and I found some of Ranchan's work before she became a member of AKB. She has been a junior idol for quite a while...

    In case you are wondering, those pics are from around 2 1/2 years ago, which would make her 12 at the time.

    I've really grown fond of Ranchan in the past month: I've watched a lot of stages with her in them (Kashiwagi stage, RESET) and she always manages to catch my eye when she's on-screen. Her expressions are great, she seems to have lots of energy and she really shines on-stage.

    I'm now following her on SHOWROOM so I can get a notification the next time she's on! Going to get to know that side of her, too.

    During today's night SR Ranchan said she'd like to do a unit shuffle in the "Shuugyouchuu" stage. One reason was that she'd like to perform "Blue Rose", and the other one was that some people in the audience had started to ignore her during the "Nagekiss" unit (though she then added that there are people who react like "Whaa!" to her, too).

    During today's Team K stage (Ami's seitansai) members were asked to share their thoughts regarding today's star, Yumoto Ami. During one of the MCs Ranchan revealed that she found Ami's lesson clothes really cool and had recently bought an identical pair of trousers. The other members on stage found this really endearing. What she omitted from that story, though, she revealed later in her mobame: she'd also bought similar kind of lesson trainers (she couldn't find identical ones). She really adores Ami!

    Another thing she mentioned in one of today's mobame was that during the rehearsals she'd made several mistakes and her manager had said to her "You made some mistakes so make sure the performance goes perfectly". She felt frustrated for performing so poorly that she was warned of further choreography and position mistakes. Because of this, she made performance preparations in 10 minutes and continued practicing right until the actual stage started. This ensured that she was able to fix her mistakes from the rehearsals and perform with no regrets.

    She still found room to improve, though - she'd been told that she looks at the numbers on the floor too much when changing positions, which is something she wants to fix. Her goal is to be able perform the Team K stage as effortlessly and following her intuition as she performs the Kashiwagi stage. You can do it, Ranchan!

    Ranchan's Tanabata prayer card, which is hanging in the AKB48 theater....

    akb7.jpg

    It days something to the effect of:

    She has made a great effort in Team K...

    She wants to become cute. (already came true imo)

    I think the third line says she wants to be selected for a coupling song.

    I hope all her wishes come true!

    The Tanabata prayers are hanging all over the theater. I could only take a photo of the hall though, since the show was going on.
