— As the 8th leader you were a central figure in the group breaking through once more, and that has resulted in the name “Michishige Sayumi” becoming almost deified.
Michishige: I was genuinely happy to have been told things like that. It felt like my 10+ years of hard work had finally been recognized. I’m no god though — I even got a leg cramp during a very important part of my graduation concert. But I think even in that moment, the fans all knew: this is the real Michishige Sayumi. Like, “I guess Michishige Sayumi will remain Michishige Sayumi until the very end.” (laughs)
— From the very beginning, you had difficulty with singing and dancing. Rather than standing out in performances, you got your big break through variety TV. Later, your image as the group’s leader became properly established, and then that graduation concert happened…
Michishige: I consider myself a perfectionist, and yet, there is always something lacking about me. That was the case for those entire 12 years. Even with the leg thing, it wasn’t just that one instance — I’d be getting cramps all the time and thus causing trouble for others. I’m bad at singing, bad at dancing, I’m a deeply jealous person, and I do not have a good personality. (laughs) In those 12 years, not once was there a time when I was truly perfect. So I feel that, in a way, maybe that graduation was actually very fitting for me.

180302 “HELLO! DRIVE! -Harodora- FRIDAY” Michishige Sayumi, Kasahara Momona, Funaki Musubu
Topic: “Which H!P member would you date if you were a boy?“ (suggested by Natsuyaki Miyabi)
(Funakki answered Kobushi’s Nomura Minami-san, Kassaa said Takeuchi Akari-san, and Sayu said that if it was a current member, she would choose either Maria (because she’s cute) or Yamaki-san (because she seems like she would be a devoted girlfriend…))
Michishige: Oh, but if past members are accepted… I would absolutely want to date Kamei Eri-chan.
Funaki: Yes, I’m sure she would be great.
Michishige: The thing with Eri is… She has a cute face of course, but it’s her personality that’s just too cute. Also the way she speaks… Her gestures… Really, I think everything about her is cute. Every time I see her — I actually just saw her a while ago which made me happy — but it’s like, I don’t know what it is, but there’s just this genius-like cuteness about her.
Funaki: Ah, I’ve thought the same thing. (laughs)
Michishige: I don’t think Eri herself is conscious of it. It’s just this thing she must’ve had since she was born.
Funaki: I’m so jealous~!
Michishige: She’s always been so cute. Like, the way she talks… I really think that’s something only Eri could do. It’s seriously so cute. It’s just… so cute. And I love her singing voice, too.
Funaki: Me too! (laughs)
Kasahara: I love it too!!
Michishige: I mean, even her speaking voice is cute.
Michishige: I love people with cute voices. (laughs) So yeah… if past members are acceptable, I think I’d choose Eri. Yep. Fufufufufu.

She pretty much only said “cute.”

Young Town Doyoubi 2017/12/16
Michishige: This past summer, we went on a trip to Guam with my family. When we were on our way back and they were checking our personal effects at the security check… You have to get into this tunnel-type thing, right? Anyway, the person there doing the checking said “hold up!” and raised their hand. But my big sister thought it was like part of the easy-going spirit of overseas or something so she just went “yaaay!” and gave them a high five. The official was going “no no no no!“
Sanma: They must’ve been surprised.
Michishige: My big sister was going like, “don’t people overseas always give each other high fives?“
Shoji: The average person should know better…
Michishige: They were saying “one more, one more!“
Sanma: I can’t say I’ve ever heard of someone high fiving an airport baggage inspector.
Michishige: Even the person doing the bag checking looked like they didn’t know what was going on.

171124 “HELLO! DRIVE! -Harodora- FRIDAY” Michishige Sayumi, Kamikokuryo Moe, Kasahara Momona
“Konya no Pajama Joshi Talk”
Topic: “sleeping attire” (suggested by Ozeki Mai)
Michishige: I have a feeling that Kamiko is probably someone who sleeps in really cute clothes.
Kamikokuryo: Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t. I really don’t.
Michishige: Reallyyyyy? I feel like fluffy clothes would really suit you.
Kamikokuryo: It’s all easy-to-sleep-in jerseys.
Michishige: Oh, so you’re the jersey type.
Michishige: So like, clothes you could wear even to the convenience store?
Kamikokuryo: … Um.
Michishige: Oh, a convenience store would be pushing it?
Kamikokuryo: Actually… I like to wear my junior high school gym uniform when sleeping. (chuckles)
Michishige: Ahh! That’s so cute~!! That’s the cutest possible answer~! (laughs) Oh man!
Kamikokuryo: I always just answer this question with “jerseys” because it’s embarrassing. But it’s really my gym uniform.
Michishige: Cute~! ♪ I want to see that!
Kamikokuryo: There’s nothing cute about it, really. (laughs)
Michishige: No, I bet you look really cute wearing it. This is probably just a case of the person themselves not realizing it.
Kamikokuryo: No no no. (laughs) I mean, our junior high school uniform was really lame!
Michishige: Even better!
Kamikokuryo: No no no. (laughs)
Michishige: That makes it even cuter. Like, when the thing you’re wearing is slightly lame.
Kamikokuryo: No way… (laughs)
Michishige: Ahh… I really want to see that!
Kamikokuryo: I’m sorry I got your hopes up for nothing.
Michishige: No, I got a better answer than I could’ve even hoped for. (laughs)
Kamikokuryo: No no! (laughs)
Michishige: Hmm. Okay, so rather than something fluffy you prefer your gym uniform.
Michishige: That’s what gets you to relax the most.
Kamikokuryo: Yes… (laughs)

This is a picture from when we went to Guam. A two-shot with my mom. We were going to go in for a dip, so I had my hair up. By the way: I can’t swim.

Unless I’m mistaken, Hahashige is close to 60. Just how can she look so young?!

That’s something she said on Konusapi back in 2010. I wonder what she thinks about H!P nowadays with so many of the new debuting members originating from Kenshuusei.

No way. If you don’t have them go through a training period, you don’t know if they’re actually suitable for debuting.

But even if you do, you’ll sometimes still have cases like those of Yuukarin and Sakichi, too.

That seems like such a Michishige-like thing to say — considering her love for children who are still in the midst of that development.
