  • She attended the same high school as Kojima Haruna.
  • In her audition she sang Hatsukoi Dash by Watarirouka Hashiritai 7. However, she had lost her voice from practicing karaoke the day before and was not confident she could sing. She only shouted the opening lyric "Let's go!" and then swayed in place silently for the rest of the song. Akimoto Yasushi asked her afterword if she went to karaoke often.
  • Her nickname was thought of by Yonezawa Rumi, who also created Watanabe Mayu's "Mayuyu".
    • In addition to "Paruru" she was also called "Zakkii" (ザッキー). In her private life she is sometimes called "Haa-chan" (はーちゃん).
    • She is called "Ponkotsu" by fans online, which loosely means "Can't Do Anything Right". This came from instances like her dancing in the wrong place during the Japanese Record Awards or looking tired during theater shows.

  • She is bad at drawing and athletics. She also considers herself bad at singing and dancing.
  • She was known to have "salty" treatment (塩対応 shiotaiou) towards her fans. She would be cold or apathetic towards meeting them, especially at handshake events.
    • This was apparent in fan photo-events, where she chose to stand behind a short partition instead of at a table with the fan.
    • Despite this, some members said she has a warm side. Yokoyama Yui said that Haruka often gave letters to members, and when they were sharing a hotel room, Haruka wrote "You can do it!" on a memo pad and left it by Yui's pillow.
  • She practiced saka agari (reverse pull-ups) at the park with her dad when she was younger. During the 2013 Mechaike Sports Meet, she became frustrated when she was not able to demonstrate a saka agari successfully.

  • She loves idols. Her favorite group was Tokyo Girls' Style.

  • She joined Big Apple agency on March 23, 2012.
  • She suffers from asthma and respiratory problems. In late 2015 and early 2016, she was absent from many events due to her health condition.
    • During this time, she became more active on social media, conversing with fans at night when her illness kept her awake.
  • She has a solo song, Douki, which she doesn't feel comfortable singing. Because of this, the song was once presented as a duet (with Kizaki Yuria) and once as a 9th Generation song.

  • She likes men who are over 180cm with broad shoulders and are not thin. She also likes men who have nice teeth.
  • She is afraid of being alone in an elevator with a stranger. Her fear began when she entered the elevator at her apartment complex, and a man quickly slipped into it as the doors were closing. The man asked her if she was Shimazaki Haruka, and though she played off the situation, she began to see the him waiting for her in the following days and became afraid.
  • She is a fan of the Korean actor Ji Changwook.
  • In 2023 she said that she is not interested in marriage and dreams of retirement instead.
