I had an image of her being popular because she was like this moe anime character.

It feels like she was actually surprisingly athletic. Though now that I think about it, everyone in the 5th gen was athetlic. But Konno was smart, too.

At the time, everyone in the group was all about pushing their way to the front 24/7. Konno was the only gentle, quiet type, so she got all the fans who were longing for that type of girl. In the beginning she used to be written off as just another member who was no good at singing or dancing or anything else, and yet it turned out that she was actually smart and fit… She was like the honor student of the group.

This girl was full of surprises.
She was a surprisingly fast runner.
She had a surprisingly good figure.

She was always dead serious when it came to food.

They didn’t get a lot of chances to appear together but the Konno-Kago pairing was fun.

I thought she wasn’t very popular at all, so I was surprised to know how much her photobooks sold.
34: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/12/16(日) 14:51:00.04 0.net
A female announcer whose photobook was the highest sold photobook of the whole year. If we’re talking achievements alone, she was the greatest member of the 5th generation.

For some reason the pairing of her and Goto was quite popular.

She was always so cute when she was completely ignoring everything that was going on around her and just silently eating by herself.

Looks-wise, it feels like there was something similar between her and Michishige in her early days. I bet Michishige would be happy to be told that.
111: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/12/16(日) 18:07:35.65 0.net
During the 6th generation auditions, everyone in the “live viewing” thread was going on about how they looked alike the moment Michishige showed up on screen. This was before it’d been decided that she would be joining the group or anything.
115: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/12/16(日) 18:20:27.72 0.net
Konno and Michishige just started looking alike at some point down the line.

She gradually got more and more popular, and by the time Tsuji-Kago left the group she was up there as one of the most popular members along with Ishikawa, Takahashi and Fujimoto.

There was a time when the office was pushing her even more than Takahashi.

Nowadays everyone just takes it for granted that photobooks come together with those making-of DVD’s, but Konno’s Wani Books release was what started it all.

I remember going to Yomiuri Land and waiting six hours in line to shake hands with her.

She may have been one of those inspirational, muse-type members.
Tsunku♂, too, wrote something along those lines.

I still remember the huge uproar from when they announced her graduation late at night on the Friday just before Golden Week.
197: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/12/18(火) 21:09:44.00 0.net
It wasn’t late at night. I’m pretty sure it was at 18:00.

I feel like she was the most prominent 5th gen character in all those H!P fanfics.
3. カラフル名無しさん 2018年12月27日 17:54 ID:vNfnmmsR0
Is she not currently the most well-known member of the 5th generation after becoming an announcer?
5. カラフル名無しさん 2018年12月27日 18:11 ID:BzusrMD.0
She had this impression of always being no. 1 at the Sports Festivals.
7. カラフル名無しさん 2018年12月27日 20:28 ID:fRn6qfJX0
I had no interest in H!P when she was a still an active member, but even I knew her and Michishige from their gravure work. I thought they were both really cute, but ultimately I just ignored them because they were too “loli” for me at the time.

She wasn’t a good singer, but she had such a cute voice. I loved it.

There were so many unexpected differences between her looks and how she actually was.
She was a fun one.

Konkon is cute.
Nice! I still do have the gokkies photobook as a gift from my trip to japan back in 2010! I bet all the konkon wotas on twitter do remember all about her! Yay!
Hennka, where’s the sayashi content that I asked earlier on the mizupon thread?
Imagine actually unironically caring about colorful era musumes. Yikes.
Hey, I said “before the end of the year” — I still have like three days!
And since that’s now twice you asked, I guess I better make it two posts…
Notice how every idol group have this one or two weird “my pace” chara member? I think it all started with Konkon /watch?v=7WfJEHp3Ms8.
Also konkon’s Konkons :)
At the time, I thought she was the most unlikeliest bikini shashinshuu subject. But I mean, duh.
Yes, I bought ’em all…
Thank god you didn’t mention her boobs otherwise she would be fuming mad.
I like Konkon. Her quiet voice is cute and she made me laugh in those old episodes.
Marippe saying it’s just a game when Konkon started to cry waterfall.
Oja Maarushe Konno!!!
She was like the total opposite of what you would assume she would be like. Think most people who didnt know about her would assume her to be unathletic and unintelligent but its actually the opposite. She was legitimately the smartest person in the group and up until Maimi came along Konno was the one dominating the H!P sports festivals along with Tsuji.. Like you would never expect her to be the starting Goalie for the H!P soccer team. Probably my favorite aspect of her is the fact that she was a glutton that couldnt eat fast at all. She was always eating something and would cry for food but it took forever for her to eat anything, i’m pretty sure gerbils can take bigger bites than she can
No joke, I actually used to keep some gerbils as pets. I can back you up on Konno eating smaller than those guys.
Kinda off topic, but laughed hard at those pics comparing the Gokkies and Rokkies. 5th gen are these nice girls next door…and then you’ve got a trio of juvenile delinquents, and it’s not like Fujimoto changed that image at all, lol. Definitely can tell which gen was the “problem children” gen, though I bet no one would be able to predict which two would be long-term leaders of MM…
