    Sorry, that post may have gotten a bit confusing. Who was actually challenging the no-makup was Team 8's Shitao Miu. I think Rikachan was at least with a light make-up, unless it was a staff requirement for the shooting (even so I doubt she would do it). She told recently that she has to change the make-up depending on the job, the one she uses on stage doesn't work in shooting/filming for magazines/dramas and vice-versa. (I looked for the SR she told it but I couln't find it.) :^^;:

    I think we have some sort of a new version of a hetare and ijirare-chara and ROAD TO WIP staff has doing a great job using it. It's funny how the staff woman reacts when Sakura asks about Rikachan. :lol: Various members have already got into Rikachan like Naachan (she remembers the "Kurushuunai"), Miion, Shimada, Oshima Ryoka, Sayaya, Komiharu (Shimada was surprised that Rikachan was close to her and honestly me too), etc. It's interesting that Sakura talked about Rikachan here again but in the last ANN she also teased Rikachan about the 3 years old child and the Rapunzel. [hehe]

    [Playball (8)] In the latter part of the concert, they jumped out the stage and also performed near the light stands.
    By the way, Miizun (Mizusawa Ayaka) was with such a surge that she slipped again as she did in the Theater's 1st Anniversary Event.
    It's a pity we couldn't take any picture.

    I don't know how Rika is in theater or concert MCs, but in that Showroom, where they introduced MV, I saw her leading the talk, like one other hetare we know))

    ^ Yes, Rikachan's sure one of the group's top talkers. Another member who has high talk skills is Sato Anju (she's like a "Natsumikan" of the group). Other members who can talk well is Ogiyuka, Gatanee, Hinatan and of course Kitarie, but they are more "normal".

    A.9 - NGT48 "Seishun Dokei" News

    Nikkan Sports

    With NGT "Seishun Dokei" to all country, debut song MV is out
    [March 17 2017, 7:49, from newspaper]

    MV filming, from left to right, Kato Minami, Nakai Rika, Takakura Moeka (C) AKS

    The music video of NGT48's major debut single "Seishun Dokei" (out on April 12) is available from today (March 17). The filming was carried out at Niigata city downtown, where NGT48 is based, and aproximately 500 Niigata citizens participated. It'll create a NGT furor with Nakai Rika (19) as the center.

    It's a song about youth focusing on a man's yearning for love. The video matches a refreshing melody and the interaction of the members with Niigata citizens. Nakai, who was chosen for a big role, said "It's a wonderful music video that shows the connection between people and people."

    Although there had been three original songs so far and she'd never stood as the center, she got famous at the video broadcast application SHOWROOM event, held in June last year along with the AKB48 Selection General Election. She picked up fans one after another and expanded the amount of them. She was gradually concious about it with the opportunith that came. "I haven't sang as the center many times until now but it's something I dreamed of. I do know that other members wished to be the center too. I wish I can work hard also for them with confidence." NGT have seen that Keyakizaka46, formed at the same time, played a brilliant debut and gained popularity. They've seen other groups activities as well. "I wish many people know that NGT is also a group with momentum in this single." From Niigata to all country. Finally this time has come. [Matsuo Konosuke]

    NGT48 is the fifth national AKB48 group based in Niigata and produced by Akimoto Yasushi. Captain Kitahara Rie (25) (transferred from AKB48), Kashiwagi Yuki (who has a concurrent position in AKB48) and 24 first generation members, in a total of 26 members were announced to form the group in August 2015. In January 2016 they opened their theater at the commercial facility "LoveLa 2" at Bandai, Niigata city.

    The Kitanippon Shimbun

    Nakai Rika (born in prefecture) aspires to be the center who delivers dreams in the debut single "Seishun Dokei" out next month
    The Kitanippon Shimbun, March 21 (Tue) 19:42

    "I want to be a center with confidence" by Nakai Rika = The Kitanippon Shimbun

    Nakai Rika (19), born in prefecture, is member of the NGT48, a sister group of AKB48 based on Niigata. She visited the Kitanippon Simbun on March 21. She was chosen as group's face (center) for the debut single "Seishun Dokei" out in April 12. "I'd like to be supported by both Toyama and Niigata, I want to be a center who delivers dreams", she said.

    "Seishun Dokei" is a song about a man's yearning for love. It has a relaxed tempo and starts with a Nakai's solo. Nakai wears a red and white costume inspired by "Toki" birds from Niigata prefecture. "The song has a soft and warm lyrics and I want it to be liked by people of all ages", she asked.

    Many fans from Toyama prefecture have visited Handshake and other events in Niigata. "I have a sense of security that Toyama's people are supporting me, I'm really happy for that", she said with a smile.

    She was also chosen as a Selection member for the upcoming AKB48's 48th single "Negaigoto no Mochigusare", out on May 31. In June there's the "General Election". "Last year I got frustrated because I couldn't enter within the 80th place (ranking boundary). This year there's the pressure for ranking because I'm the center, but I wish I can have my name called with a smile", she reinforced.

    NGT48 was established as the fifth national AKB48 group in 2015. Kitahara Rie, who serves as captain, and Kashiwagi Yuki, who has a concurrent position in AKB48, are members of the group.

    Awesome. Thanks for the translation.

    Last year, she came late (too close to the election) with the Showroom. However, she still made in the top 100 (to my surprise).

    This year with many top rank members graduated, lets see how high she is going to rank. Senbatsu?

    Yes, I also think that the SHOWROOM came a bit late for the last SSK and her rank was mostly because her popularity before it. This is my hope for this year, that the popularity she got because SHOWROOM and other opportunities she received since then can boost her rank this year. There're some interesting points she talked in her last SR about SSK and what she thinks about Niigata that I wrote below:


    Sousenkyo 2017

    Rikachan said on her last SHOWROOM that she's going to run and talked about some thoughts concerning the SSK.
    She's received a lot of opportunities since last year (she was chosen as a Selection member for the AKB48's 48th single this week), but she knows it's not for granted and she must show the results to fans (who make it possible) and to everyone who believed her and put some efforts to promote her. She's more confident because she ranked 33rd place in the NHK Kouhaku but it's also a pressure to achieve such a high place in SSK.

    In last year's SSK, she didn't ask fans much to vote her, as long as fans were having fun in the SHOWROOM it was fine but the situation is a bit different this year, she has to show results for the opportunities she received and although it might be a burden to her fans, she'd like to ask for their help. She's aiming to rank within the 48th place because it's the double of 24, her audition number. Honestly she'd like to rank 24th but it's too hard to ask this to her fans. She didn't grow up in a wealthy family and does know the value of money. Everybody has personal expenses and it she feels sorry for asking the fans to spend money for her. But there's a dream she wants to reach, so she ask for help as long as fans don't push themselves too hard. It breaks her heart to ask fans to do such effort but reality (situation) is harsh and they aren't allowed to be so naive.

    She also thanked her fans and management, who were watching her working hard and decided to give her the opportunities. She gradually realized what people was expecting from her. SHOWROOM was of great importance, thanks to it, several dreams came true and was the place she was able to show herself more and more. But she also wants to be an idol beyond SHOWROOM and give people more things the same way she did before.

    Rikachan wants that all the opportunities she received take form as a result and she believes that SSK is the place where it's possible. It's the place where there're all the dramas in 48G. To her, everything started from SSK and she wants to share tears of joy this year: "I want to see the landscape everybody saw but I couldn't see last year, so please lend me your strength."

    At the ending, she said she's planning some commitments if she ranks within 48th that would make her fans happy. One of them that she compromised to do is 48 consecutive forward rolls. :lol:

    Rikachan and Niigata

    Rikachan also pointed that people frequently ask her what she thinks about Niigata. And the answer is, she loves Niigata! Niigata is the place where her dreams came true, which couldn't be fulfilled in Toyama or Tokyo. There, she was able to finally became an idol, she first appeared on a drama, they first held mini concerts and they filmed the music video in which she's the center.

    All the members from outside the city are afraid if they have the right to speak about Niigata. They think there might be people who could say "What an outsider is talking about Niigata? You know nothing!", so she was holding it back but she does like the city. Rikachan considers Niigata her second home. "Tokyo is wonderful but has its worries." Everytime she comes back to Niigata from Tokyo by Max TOKI bullet-train, she can feel relieved and say "I'm home." Actually Rikachan's mother is from Niigata. She also has relatives there but she doesn't say it much so not to bother them. In this sense, she's half Toyama and half Niigata. The two cities are Rikachan's treasures. She's lucky to have two places where she can feel at home.

    People might think she doesn't care about Niigata but she does care. She lives there, there's no way she doesn't like it. And there has been enough time for her to get used to the city. She's probalbly been researching about Niigata more than its own citizens and she's enjoying learning about it. So she doesn't want people to think she doesn't care. Niigata is her second home and she loves it.

    [Princess@morning newspapers] Rikachan (Nakai Rika) got various interviews yesterday.
    First of all, it seems that articles were published this morning in The Kitanippon Shimbun and The Asahi Shimbun Toyama.
    People of Toyama, if you are interested, please take a look.

    ^ Thank you for the translation!! :) That's very thoughtful of Rika and very realistic about the goal as well.

    Although my wish would be for her to shoot straight up to Undergirls! She managed to gather almost 9k votes last year with barely any activity, so I don't see why she can't gather another 20k votes this year to get into UG. Well actually I could see why, NGT debut single so close to the election :glare:

    Not that it matters, but nice to know that Rika is half Niigata haha

    Yeah, it shouldn't matter if a NGT48 member is native or not, what's important is if she's working hard for the group that represents the city. :)
    48th place (around 50th) is a reasonable number. I'd be a bit disappointed if she ranks lower than that. UG would be great, considering she's not that young if she's aiming the top members in SSK.

    On today's SR, a viewer threw 10 Tokyo Towers (one of them was x2) out of nothing.

    Rikachan had some free time yesterday, so she went to the movies to watch Moana with none other than her beloved Milky! :banana:

    She's already creepy when she's along with Yukirin or Jurina, I wonder how it is hanging out with someone who's a goddess to her ... or Rikachan is just a chorohime :^^;:

    You're welcome! :)
    Yes, I've enjoyed a lot following her. At first I thought "Nah ... she must be just another fisher girl", but soon I found out that the "fisher" is just her "external character" and there's indeed a very mature and funny person behind it (although terribly emotionaly unstable). I got through a full marathon of her SHOWROOMs and already in "EP03" (Day 3) there was a break of her fisher character and her geinin chara came out :XD: (and it's legit, she really loves owarai, her comedy sense is more natural than various NMB girls who are "forced" to do comedy just because they are in a kansai group).

    She's very supportive in

    thinks a lot about the juniors but she doesn't try to show it. That's why she's amazing.

    [Nakai Rika / modelpress = March 24] Before the major debut in April, NGT48's center Nakai Rika will decorate the cover of the girls visual book "My Girl vol. 17" to be out on March 31.
    Nakai, who was chosen as the center in the major debut, appears on the cover in a cute swimsuit. She showed a slender body with a beautiful bust and waist.
    In addition, there's a photo page with girly fashion pictures. In the long interview, we approached her current feelings. The responsability to be the center and thoughts and feelings from the beginning of the activities until the major are told.

    There's not really many members in AKB who have clear objectives about what they want to achieve, and to express it in a way that is also not apparent selfishness (like using tears as a weapon to gain more attention/votes). She does in fact the opposite where she acknowledges fans support and to care about them to not waste too much money on her, this in fact probably will motivate people to vote for her more. :D

    And her ethics towards work and life is very positive too. Don't care too much about her identity of not being 100% Niigata. (It's the love of it that counts, and she understands.) No complaining or conflicts with others (which is shown where she is still super friendly with Katomina instead of a rival and others around her too.) Just like what Sasshi said in her book, you gotta love and enjoy your work and that is the first step to become successful. No wonder her showroom has this many viewers, this is just her true self having fun with fans. :v:

    And I almost couldn't recognize Rika-hime in that bikini shot :O
    Looks completely like a different person looool

    Let me use your post to talk a little about Rikachan :XD: (maybe someone else wants to read it too)

    There's a factor that makes her want to go up so fierce: haters! Rikachan was a pretty known Johnny's wota, fan of Kis-My-Ft2 Fujigaya Taisuke before whe joined NGT (she had a twitter account named Fujigaya Rika, which haters use photoprints all the time to attack her). They claim she entered the entertainment world only to approach him (twitter floods crazy everytime there's a chance for them to meet in a TV show) and they say she'll betray her fans soon. That's why she's so ambitious to grow up as an idol and reach the top, to show them that she's much more than they think. Of course, this is not the only reason.

    Actually Rikachan cries a lot on her SHOWROOMs. :^^;: Haters say "If you'll cry don't do SR!" but then I think, why the hell are haters wasting their time watching to a girl who they don't like? :fp: But it's interesting how there're some streamings in which she starts crying but ends laughing. SHOWROOM is a real outlet for her to deal with all her pressure and her fans understand it.

    [Edit] Just remembered. Like she said before and said it again recently, her main purpose in the group IS NOT TO BE THE CENTER. She wants to be the idol that you can find her / you want to find her wherever she stands. She wants to be that member who, independent where she stands, is essential for the group.

    I think she says that because very often she doesn't have a buck at the end of the month. She even made a song about it. :XD:
    Getsumatsu Katsu Katsu Onna
    Watashi wa Getsumatsu
    Katsu Katsu yo
    Tarekatsu sura mo taberenai
    Katsu Katsu yo
    Warikan wa atarimae
    Katsu Katsu na no
    Sou yo, watashi wa Katsu Katsu
    Getsumatsu Katsu Katsu onna yo

    The Broke Girl at the End of the Month
    I'm broke
    at the end of the month
    I can't even eat a Tarekatsu
    I'm broke
    Going dutch is normal
    I'm broke
    That's it, I'm the broke ...
    The broke woman at the end of the month.

    Although sometimes she may seem selfish, her parents are very severe with her, especially her mother. Her mother is always watching her on SRs and gives her advices when she does something that may not please people. Her father too, other day a viewer alone gave her 10 Tokyo Towers but she couldn't read his/her name because the avatar wasn't appearing, she just thanked without saying who it was. Soon, she got a LINE message from her dad (who was watching) like "Hey you, this person spent about 1000 dollars on you, read the name properly! The name is XXX."

    It's clear that Rikachan doesn't want to lose to Katomina but I'm quite surprised how they seem to be in good terms. I thought they were more like SayaMilky, which seemed to have some friction between them. CMIIW

    That's very true! There's no way to grow up and to be good in what you don't like! :)
    Oh boy, I haven't read this book yet ... failed as a fan ... shame me! :fp:

    Yeeeaaaahhh, weird, isn't it? Rikachan looks very different sometimes, depending on where she appears, magazines, SR, TV, photos, etc. I don't know if it's the camera angle, light, make-up ... Sometimes she looks very cute, sometimes not much ... :blink:
    This photo from her photolog with the same bikini looks more natural.
