Mikake wa choppiri YANKII kokoro wa GARASU no HAATO Takamina koto Takahashi Minami desu!
(My appearance is slightly yankee, but my heart is a glass. Called Takamina, Takahashi Minami!)


  • Audition Song: Will (Hamasaki Ayumi)
  • Hobbies: Reading manga
  • Favorite animal: All animals, but likes cats the most
    • Runs an Instagram account only with pictures of her cat (@neco_mina)

  • Favorite artist: Flumpool, Aqua Timez, w-inds, Nakamori Akina
  • Favorite color: Pink
  • Favorite food: Katsudon, hamburger steak
  • Disliked food: Many, including sushi, broccoli, tomato. In general she dislikes raw food
  • Favorite manga: "One Piece", but likes shounen manga in general
  • Favorite seasons: Spring & Autumn
  • Ideal female: A person that looks perfect, but isn't
  • Good friends with: Maeda Atsuko (AtsuMina)
  • Future ambition: Solo singer. She has also expressed interest in voice acting
  • Former member of Light Music Club
  • Before joining AKB48, competed in The 30th HoriPro Talent Contest (第30回ホリプロタレントスカウトキャラバン) and was among the Top 15 out of 52,547 contestants
    • She received the loudest applause after her singing performance during this contest, and was the only girl who didn't cry when the winner was announced
  • Original center of AKB48
  • She is the only AKB48 member who participated in all singles (except Janken Tournament singles)
  • Was officially announced as Team A captain during the 2009 Team Shuffle
  • Known for her "failing" (suberi) character on TV (telling stories that she thinks are funny, but actually are not)
  • Only believes in fortune-telling when it's a good one
  • Wants to visit Egypt
  • Does not watch TV, instead closes her eyes and daydreams until she wants to go to bed
  • Likes indoors better than outdoors and is sensitive to heat and coldness
  • Would eat Ginza Bairin's katsudon for her last meal
  • Her childhood hero is Kakuranger
  • Based on Shukan AKB 100Q, she thinks that she is good at decisive dance choreography, but not as good at graceful dance steps
  • As seen on AKB48 1ji 59fun, she can't skip properly
  • Likes guys who wear suits. Thinks it's dreamy when they're fixing their collars
  • Rates herself as a 3 out of 10, her reasoning being that she doesn't think she has many feminine points and is probably a disappointment as a female
  • Can often be seen giving speeches and leading the group huddles for both concerts and stage performances. This, among other things, has led to many fans referring to her as the captain of AKB48 (until she was promoted to be official General Director of AKB48 in AKB48 in TOKYO DOME ~1830m no Yume~). She is even called "AKB's Papa" or "AKB's Soul" (AKB no Tamashii)
    • Her nickname Sou-chan derives from Soukantoku, the Japanese word for General Director
