Q: What would you be doing if not for AKB?
I entered AKB in the 1st year of Middle School..if not for AKB, i would have gone to school, played with friends or participated in club activities everyday. After that, go to high school, find a boyfriend, be in love etc. To put it simply, things that normal girls would experience.
Now that i'm 22, and it's my 10th year, all my youth has been given to AKB. The normal things that girls my age do, i haven't been able to experience. But i sacrificed that and came all this way. There might be a time for me to graduate, but until that day, as a member of AKB, i don't want to leave any regrets. I have my position as a senior now too and things i have to do.
Jurina: She's cute when she's angry, cute when she cries, cute when she smiles.
Yuihan: She's an orthodox idol like those from the past.
Q: About being called the orthodox idol...
There are different personalities in AKB, and my image is that of an orthodox idol. I'm not really an idol in private, on the contrary i'm being made to be one.
Q: Is "orthodox idol" your concept?
That might be the case, but since i received such reviews about me, i decided to grow upon it. In a good way, i might be acting it out.
Q:What is Mayuyu like in real life?
Yukirin:She's really weird. She does things that are off..
Sasshi:In the rest room, she does things that no others would see. She's really funny.
Q: What did you do?
I can't tell you here. Actually i'm just talking about useless things, but i'm really a joker when i'm not working.
This year's ambitions...
Last year, it was really a regret i couldn't win. I want to see the scenery 2 years ago, again.
This year, I definitely want to be No.1. I will take it.
