    Prior to joining was friends with member Imaizumi Yui.

    Has a couple of fairly serious youtube song/dance covers online (all discovered long before she revealed her name, of course)

    She was #4. I hung out in her showroom some. Rather always impressed me from what I saw.

    I thought she was terrific on Showroom, during the audition and also yesterday. Her trying to capitalize on her friendship with Zuumin in the audition, however, made me feel funny, even if it was a good tactic. And she removed mention of it from her sign after the first day or so. I kept wondering just how much of a friend she was with Zuumin. I wondered if she was more rival than friend, as they were both being developed by Sony. I noticed that in Zuumin's blog today, where she mentioned the Hiragana keyakis, she didn't make special mention of Kyouko.

    Good tactic it is, it could backfire. Hard.

    But I agree that she makes several good progress in the showroom, possibly the best growth, from day one to finish.

    There was a lot of interest in Kyouko at first, but that seems to have dissipated a bit. I was glad she ended up being chosen because she showed real singing talent on Showroom, and also showed she could dance a bit. To get an idea of what she's like, I've translated her first blog post. She seems a bit to much of a "pro" to me, but still I like her. And she has singing (and dancing?) talent that will contribute to Keyakizaka.

    In her second blog post, she says she plans on posting a lot, and goes on to tell us more about herself:

    favorite foods: ramen, macaroons, macaroni
    favorite colours: pink and white
    things I like to do: gazing at things for a long time, watching women's volleyball
    my nature: sunao (honest, obedient), jittery, extreme indoor girl
    pet: rabbit -- Rabiko, age 6, male
    ₍ ᐢ. ̫ .ᐢ ₎
    what I most look forward to in becoming an idol: meeting people at handshake events and surprising them
    goal: being called the queen of godly fan-interaction

    From here on, I want to make lots of happy memories with people
    (´-`).。oO(♡

    Here she is (left) with Sarina (Ushio Sarina) and Aya (Takamoto Ayaka):

    Ahh they all look so much better in their self-taken photos than in their profile pictures.

    By the way, have you ever thought about editing the stage48 wiki about the members? It seems like something you'd like to do (judging from your helpful members chart) and they're always very sparse. http://stage48.net/wiki/index.php/Hiragana_Keyaki46 I think you join by posting in this thread here.

    Yes, Happy Birthday, Kyouko! She turns 19 today (Monday). The "Kyonko Heart" is pretty nice. I get a good feeling from Kyouko. I love her deep speaking voice.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've started to do a bit of that.

    Here's a translation of Kyonko's blog post congratulating Kakizaki Memi on her 15th birthday.

    I've liked Kyonko right from the time of her Showroom auditions. She's positive, serious, and friendly. Her careful tending of relationships with other members makes me think she not only is as weak as she claims, but also has great emotional intelligence. And who can fail to love that deep voice.

    Kyonko writes today to thank the Kanji Keyaki members who went to Kyoto to put up posters in all 32 stations of the Kyoto subway (see last weekend's Keyakitte, Kakenai TV show) for putting up posters signed by the Hiraganas as well. She says her poster is at Ono station, on the east-west line, in the eastern hills.

    The words that come to mind when I look at Kyonko's pictures in today's post are: "Perfect Human." External beauty, for sure, but I imagine I see internal beauty, too. She gives a comfortable feeling, to me.

    Kyonko gets good face-time with the camera at 7:22-7:25 of the Seifuku no Manekin clip. Behind and to the left of Maiyan.

    The Hustle Press photos don't really look like her -- but they look fantastic in themselves.
