Komiharu’s first and second gravure on UTB Magazine

One month ago, Komiharu was given the opportunity to participate on “755xUTB Watch War” with important members of AKB48 Group, Furuhata Nao (SKE48) and Jonishi Kei (NMB48).

She came out third and the prize was “Self-produce gravure in UTB magazine”.

The three participants is scheduled to be on the cover of the June 2015 edition of the magazine.

Since her debut, she had some opportunities (gravure, AKBINGO!…), but they are few compared with other girls of her generation and juniors. So sometimes she has expressed her frustration about it.

In an interview, she said the kind of character she’s aiming to be is a “fisher” character.
She wants to be like Suda Akari or Watanabe Miyuki, but in reality, if a fan said to her at a handshake event, “Please fish me~”, she wouldn’t know what to do!

Komiharu's thoughts about this year's election

When she announced her candidacy for the 41st Single General Election, she said the rank that she is aiming for this year is 33rd (Next Girl’s center).

Komiharu knows it is an extremely high aim at this moment, but she is aiming high because she thinks if she is the center of Next Girls, many people will know her in the immediate future. Also, she thinks she has a chance for elections of this year!

For this year’s election Appeal Video, she is a cute angel~

“On 6/6 at the SSK, I hope I can rank and present my Komiharu smile and all my gratitude on the stage. Komi might still have a long way to go, but I’d like to aim higher with everyone, so please cheer me on! I’ll do my best!”
