Kudo: It all started with my father telling me, “hey, that’s the same company that does Morning Musume!” I desperately wanted to meet the members of Morning Musume, and so I sent in my application for the Eggs audition.
— Your father is a big Morning Musume fan — to the extent that he was there to buy “Ai no Tane” when the group was selling it in-person.
Kudo: That’s right. It’s like my father unknowingly gave his daughter a dream. I’d come to love Morning Musume thanks to his influence, and so I immediately announced that I wanted to apply for the auditions.
— You didn’t have any prior singing or dancing experience, did you?
Kudo: I was this “sports girl.” I’d always been big into swimming, but then my attention completely switched over to being an idol, just like that. I didn’t know left from right and there was a lot to be anxious about, but even for someone like me — someone with no singing or dancing experience — there were moments when I was doing these things that were completely new to me and it still felt like I could actually do it. Those moments made me happy.
Moreover, despite being so tiny, I had an unusually husky voice and I was a bit of a cheeky girl. My seniors and the staff all seemed to dote on me because of that. And honestly, having grown up as the eldest daughter of my family…? I didn’t dislike being doted on. (laughs)

Girls this age will talk about much nastier stuff than this when they’re in private.

“Public execution”… where’d she learn that word?

Are these girls drunk?

Kudo Haruka: “I still like the smell of my dad’s pillow. I was always a daddy’s girl.“
Sanma: “Your brain will eventually come to dislike it so it doesn’t devolve into incest.“

I think that’s just an unproven theory about the incest thing.

They were talking about this theory on the TV show Honma Dekka.

Even if this theory is real, the problem then is the “eventually” bit. Haru-chan is 17 years old already — if it’s really some built-in, instinctive kind of mechanism meant to prevent incest, shouldn’t it have kicked in a good three or four years ago? It’s too late by now!

Today is my little brother’s birthday!
He’s turning eight. Congratulations! It looks like my family is throwing him a birthday party… They sent me a picture of it which made me a bit lonely, but seeing my family looking so happy made me feel happy, too. (^ ^)
I hope to meet them all soon!
I wonder when that’s going to be~?
My little brother was just three years old when I first came to Tokyo! They really grow up so fast! I don’t get to see him a lot, so whenever I do, I try to spend as much time with him as possible. I’m always clinging to him. (^ ^) He’s really, really cute! （▼v▼） But it’s just that since he’s growing up so fast, he’s refusing to play with me as much as he used to! Still, I’m glad to see him grow. (^ ^)
Although we used to bathe together all the time, the other day when I said “hey, let’s take a bath together!” like I always do, he was all “well, I mean, I’m okay with it if you are.” He was all cold like that! He doesn’t want to bathe together anymore!
What’s up with that!? For your information, I was changing your diapers when you were tiny, you know! (laughs)
Does he want to become more independent? Well, it’s not that I’m his parent or anything, but since I’m his big sister and there’s an age gap, I kind of almost see him as my own child. (^ ^)
I hope he has a great birthday!
I’ve prepared lots of presents for him, so I hope I can make him happy!

I’m so insanely jealous.

Oh! Also, today as I was heading to work, this couple in their late twenties(?) (I’m very sorry if I’m mistaken!) approached me. And you won’t believe what they said to me! “You’re really cute!!” they said!!!!!
I was glad to be told that of course, but I don’t think they knew I’m a member of Morning Musume ’14! (:_;)
It was actually the boyfriend who called me cute and what’s more is, after he’d told me that, it looked as if him and his girlfriend started having a disagreement about it… (ﾟｰÅ) (strained laugh)
I didn’t know which way to feel about it… (laughs)
That’s all. (laughs)

What is this, Duu? Boasting?

Lately I’m doing my best to take good care of my skin!
Up until now, or rather, at around the time of “Help me!!”… that was the worst skin I’d ever had in my life up until now. Since then I tried all kinds of things until I finally came across “Proactiv” and it saved me!!
My pimples have healed up nicely, too, so for those of you who are troubled by not having anything that works against them, please do try it out!!

That’s some good stealth marketing. (laughs)

The latest edition of “Young Gangan” with Fukumura-san on the front cover went on sale today!!!
I bought two copies, by the way. It was so embarrassing buying them at the bookstore. The clerk asked me, “This is two of the same magazine. Is that okay?” so I excitedly replied “Yes! No problem!“
When it comes down to it, I really am a boy after all!!!

Don’t buy up all the copies!

One for safekeeping, one for fapping.

Well, it’s only to be expected of a healthy boy his age.
Miyazaki Yuka: “Karin-chan is cute!”
Uemura Akari: “You lolicon.“

Miyamoto Karin-chan sat in the seat next to mine in our dressing room.
We actually end up in seats next to each other quite often. ♡
She has a habit of making a mess on her desk at our dressing rooms. Today, too, even though she was trying her best to clean it up, she wasn’t really making much progress at all. But seeing Karin-chan like that, she was so cute!!!! Do you know what I mean?? Like, even though she’s so cool when performing, she also has that clumsy side to her. ♡♡
When I told this story to Aarii, she just went: “lolicon.” (laughs)

Do you call a girl who likes a younger girl a lolicon, too?

Don’t expect Aarii to know correct Japanese.
