Ah I just watched Setobingo episode 5, Otani is too funny that she has completely won me over. I wish more people could see her funny side, this girl is really amazing after all.
I really like this look on her. She looks good without bangs.
Kouko: Do you hate me?

"From Yamaguchi prefecture, 14 years old, I'm STU48 1st Generation member, Marina Otani. This is my second time, and for my first time, I was too nervous to take note of my surroundings, so for this second time, I would like to listen to my seniors' speeches and learn from them. This second time, I would like to sing a song. (song) Thank you. I hope to receive your support."
I was doing research on who in STU48 to vote for since I decided I was going to choose 1 girl from each group.
What swayed my decision? Well, besides the fact that she is from Yamaguchi and girls from Yamaguchi are the best... (see all from Michishige Sayumi to Kairi Sane)
But, she is also a graduate of Actor School Hiroshima.
Heard of it?... Maybe not.
You know Perfume? They were the first generation from that school.
BabyMetal's Suu-Metal (who Marina here is a huge fangirl of)? Morning Musume's Sayashi Riho? Nogizaka46's Nakamoto Himeka? HKT48's Murashige Anna? Team 8's Tani Yuri?
All graduates from that school... And Marina here spent time on one of the school's official groups too!
If you were wondering where she learned to sing so well? That's the answer.
Of course, there are 4 such girls on STU48 and 2 in Team 8 right now.
So the being from Yamaguchi prefecture and the BabyMetal fangirlism was the clencher.
