Yasumoto Ayaka Article at Nikkei Entertainment Idol Special 2015.

In charge of training and MC growth, sometime the Coolness switch is on!

In the new structure of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku, she became number 3 from the top, she is 16 years old Yasumoto Ayaka. Also appointed to train the 2 new members Kobayashi Kaho and Nakayama Riko. Has overcoming many confusing change in different environment, it seems in this 1 year she was able to meet her new self.

2014 was a year of struggle. Previously, Mayama (Rika) and the 3 peoples who had resigned, were the person i asked to tell me many things, but now i’m in charge of training the new members. There was an anxiety, since the 2 new members have become familiar immediately, it was become wheter they have something to teach me too or not.

If i think it now,  it was reversed thet they teached me a lot. If i’m not in charge of training them, maybe the me today won’t exist. I was able to get my position among the 8 members in Ebichu is because i was able to work with confidence and it is thanks to those two. To be able to become my different self, i’m really grateful.

Even at the Live MC, there is a change in position so i can help the members who isn’t speaking. This is a new challenge.

At first I’m afraid of MC time, I didn’t want to talk. There was a time when I think “Why should I do MC?”.  Being crushed by anxiety and nervousness, I was crying when the live ended.

For me the presence of those 3 who had resigned is really big, so it was really painful when they resigned. Mizuki was entering at the same time, (Mizuki) Uno have been my friend since in the Minitia Bears, Nacchan (Anno Natsu) was joining Ebichu and Minitia at the same time with me, we have through a lot together, so i have strong deep feeling with those three.

Even though it was hard not to think about it, I didn’t show it at all, because it will affect the other members as well. There was a chance to talk about what’s next with everyone, but at that time I can’t say my opinion properly, if I really said what I was thinking that time, it wil also affect everyone.

I’m afraid whether I’ll be disliked if I speak, but I’m supposed to say it. The feeling that I can’t say, I think everyone is already know it. But, I didn’t know how is it really.  In the end, I realized that we need to tell honestly. I’m still weak, but from now on, I want to be Ayaka that good at talking.

From October, also starring at the first drama. While enjoying the wider playing field by each year, she has a big dream.

I love theater(stage act). There is not much of this work in Ebichu, so i did this drama seriously.  I want everyone, either Ebichu Family or not, who watched it to think “This kid is interesting”, so the next time i come out in drama again, i will work hard with that goal in mind.  

The dream is the theme song for Ghibli and Kohaku Uta Gassen

In live and music program, i think i want to show my coolness, maybe too hard (lol). I entered cool switch mode.

Radio and Variety show is my biggest chance. But I was easily nervous.,

At November live at Kobe World Hall, I was very nervous when sang the solo song. When I got the chance to do the solo song, there is “Ok, watch it” feeling, also anxiety feeling. It was so complicated with the mix of nervousness and excitement. I want to have Solo in the future. When Mayama got the Solo, I’m happy and also want to do it.

I have 2 dreams. The first one is sing for studio ghibli. Barefooted, whitedress, i want to sing with a fresh image. The other one is i want to star in Asadora(Morning drama).  With me as the Asadora heroine, the theme song will be Ebichu. That will give me an opportunity to be the moderator of Kohaku Uta Gassen, and it will be great if Ebichu can also performing there. But i think Ebichu may appear at Kohaku before Ayaka starring in Asadora. (lol)

Afterall i’m admiring Kohaku (Uta Gassen). Kohaku is being watched by a lot of peoples from Grandma and grandpa to kid. Ebichu is still not famous enough, but i want it to be like SMAP, a national idol that everyone in this country know, i’ll work hard to reach that.  I will go to this 2015 with confidence, and i want to be cooler. I want be extremely cool.

Kobayashi Kaho Article at Nikkei Entertainment Idol Special 2015.

14 years old Shining Brightness that gives a new freshness to the group

January 2014, at Green Dome Maebashi concert “Ore no Fujii” , together with Nakayama Riko, transfer was announced. Raised with a game of tag together with her friends in Saitama, this 14 years old girl’s charm point is her smile.

At the time of child, until now there is not much change, still a bright and nice kid who always help her teacher.

Same with the kids at the same age i have grown a bit but, with friends from elementary school still playing around the park, playing dorokei or game of tag, i’m playing too. Even now, i still playing game of tag with that friends (laugh).

              During elementary 6th grade summer holiday, I went to cousin’s place in Tokyo. Together with my mother, when we were shopping at Harajuku, i was scouted.

              I have loved to sing since Kindergarten, during the elementary school i like to listen Ikimonogakari and Superfly, and longing to become a singer in the future. But i’m too shy, i’m thinking to myself “Isn’t it better to wait until i’m at highschool.” But my mother encourage me and said, “The long-awaited chance has come, why don’t you try it?”

              I don’t know much about Idol but, i entered the agency, and become the member of the unit “Team Dai-Oh Ika”, doing handshake event, going to practice with everyone, I began to think that being Idol is fun.

              One day around October 2013, i was called by the agency and they said “Do you want to join Ebichu?”, i’m surprised “Eh, that Ebichu??” and i’m answered with “Please let me do it”.

              From watching their event “Jishuu”, i’m thinking “They’re cute”. With a surprised feel, i think this kind of chance will never come again, “I’ll call home and ask my mother”, that’s what i said but actually i have decided by myself.

              The reason why i was selected as member is, because the cheerfulness and “To give a new wind to Ebichu” , OOO and principal said it like that. But i wonder what’s the meaning of the new wind. (laugh)

              But since joining, there is a little anxiety feels. Before the Tour started, i wonder if i can remember the song and dance.

             When first announced as Ebichu member at 1 January in Green Dome Maebashi, i’m still performing with Team DaiohIka member, it was the first time to perform at that big venue, i’m very nervous until almost cry, my knee was also shaking.

             I have a great relation since before with Riko who transferred together, when she heard about i’m entering Ebichu from staff, at that time, then she said, “Then, i’ll do it too.” If i rejected the transfer, i wonder what will happen(laugh).

As Ebichu member, 21 March Schoolplay (Live) Grand Cup Osaka “Luck To The Future Part 2” was my first participation. At November “East-West Schoolplay”, i also sang a solo song for the first time.

Memorizing 20 songs in 2 months.

During the preparation of Grand Cup there wasn’t much of free time, i have practice for more than 6 hours at weekends, and memorizing more than 20 songs. When i look at it now it was so hard, but rather than suffering, there was a stronger feeling of fun. Another member also helped me, by teached me.

At the day before at the hotel room, me and Rikochan was rehearsing the choreography again. At that time, i gave myself around 60 points.

What makes most impression is Summer’s Famien. When watching Ebichu DVD, Famien seems the most fun, i wanted to try it. There are flower on the feet, but there are some happening too. When i was hit by the fountain. “Ah, i’ve got hit. But because it’s cool when wet, it’s okay”, i was think positively.

At Touzai Schoolplay when singing solo song for the first time, i’m very nervous, my colour is become a yellow colour of Chyalume. I don’t know how to put it, i’m really impressed. For my own, i think i’m doing well. Maybe around 70 points (laugh). At Touzai Schoolplay, i think it’s my first “No-miss”.

Because i’m not a good talker, I want to put more strength into talk, the singing is also a challenge. Ebichu’s level is quite high, if i want to catch up with the other, i have to work harder.

I’m getting along with the other members. Mayama told me “This is better” and she gave me a lot of another advice. Slowly, i knew the personality of the other members.

I don’t know whichy way i’ll go but, maybe become actress, I want to try it.

今週は先週に引き続き、雑誌『ニコラ』のモデルとして大人気!久間田琳加さんの登場です。

Continuing from last week, Nicola's top model, Kumada Rinka!

小学校6年生で『ニコラ』のモデルオーディションでグランプリを受賞。誌面に登場してからはあっという間に人気急上昇、今では多くの先輩と並んで中心的存在のモデルに。
Winning grand prize in Nicola exclusive model audition in 6th years of elementary school. She quickly became popular since the first time appeared on magazine, now she become the central attention alongside many of her senior.

まるでお人形のような長い手足に、親しみのあるキュートな笑顔。どんな服でも愛らしく着こなしてしまう姿は天性のモデルといえるでしょう。

Long legs, like a doll and a friendly cute smile. It can be said that she is natural model and would be lovely wearing any kind of clothes.

「ニコラが出発点だったのは本当に良かったと思います。モデル仲間の子とも仲が良くて、一緒に遊びに行くこともあります。学校とモデルの仕事の両立は大変なところもあるけれど, とにかく撮影の仕事が大好きなのでまったく気になりません。これからは広告やCMの仕事にもどんどんチャレンジしていきたいです」

"I think the starting point at Nicola is a good one. I got along very well with fellow child models, sometimes we go to play together.  Sometime there's a problem of balancing between school and work, but it's okay, because i love my work. I want to challange more and more CM work for now."

キラキラした瞳で将来の目標を語る久間田さん。中学生とは思えないしっかりとした受け答えに、芯の強さが伺えます。

Kumada-san talking about her future goal with a sparkling eyes.

「でも普段はホント普通の中学生ですよ。モデルの仕事をずっとやっていきたいという気持ちは変わらないんですけど、洋服の好みなんかはコロコロ変わっちゃうんです。
"But i really just an ordinary student everyday. So, after doing a lot of model work, there's some feeling that i can't change, something like my favourite clothes.

今は割とレースやフリルのついたラブリーな洋服にハマっていて、仕事以外では可愛いファッションばかりしていますが、ちょうどニコラのオーディションを受けた頃は全く違って、

スタッズがついたデニムなど、ロックテイストのファッションが好きでした。来年になったら、またまったく違うファッションを着ているんでしょうね。でもそれも全部、モデルの仕事にはプラスになると思うから」

普段の話をすると、たちまちにぎやかな女子中学生になる久間田さん。そんな飾らないところも同世代を中心に、大人にも人気のある魅力なのかもしれません。

成長の過程をずっと見守りたくなる、小さな大型モデルです。

今週は雑誌『ニコラ』のモデルとして大活躍! 12歳の将来有望モデル、久間田琳加さんの登場です!

This week will featuring someone who got a big success as a model for "Nicola"! The promising 12 years old model, Kumada Rinka!

小学校6年生の時に『ニコラ』の専属モデルオーディションでグランプリを受賞、今やニコラを代表する人気モデルに。

Winning Nicola's exclusive model audition at 6th years of elementary school, now has become a popular model who represent Nicola.

すらりとした長い足、小さな顔…雑誌で見る印象以上のスタイルの良さは、小学校6年生まで週6ペースで続けていたクラシックバレエで鍛えた賜物。現 在は学校で体操部に所属しているそうですが、50mを7秒台で走るなど運動神経抜群。体を動かすのが大好きという元気な中学生です。

Beautiful long legs, small face. Giving more than a good expression in magazine, trained in ballet until 6th year of elementary school and still continued with 6 weeks pace. She is a member of gymnastic club in her school and have 7 seconds record for 50m sprint. She is cheerful middle school student that loves moving.

そんな久間田さんは生まれてすぐ父親の仕事の都合でフランスに移り住み、幼稚園の年長までリヨンで暮らしていたそうですが、明るく人なつっこい性格は海外での生活が影響しているのかもしれません。
Kumada-san was moved to France because of her father's work after the birth, then lived on Lyon until last year of Kindergarten. Her bright personality maybe came from the impact of life abroad.

「日本に帰って来た頃は言葉に戸惑う事もありましたが、すっかり馴れました。反対にフランス語を忘れてしまったんですよね…それがとっても残念! 19歳の兄は流暢に話せるので余計くやしくって(笑)」

"I was bit confused with the languange when coming back to Japan, but i can do it! But on the other hand, i forgot the french language, it's regrettable! But my 19 years old brother can speak both of it fluently (lol)"

小さい頃からファッションが大好きで、モデルはずっと憧れの職業だったのだとか。そのためニコラのモデル(通称ニコモ)オーディションにも自分から 応募したそうです。無事グランプリを獲得し、モデルとなってからは、さらにファッションやモデルとしての勉強に熱心になったのだとか。

"I love fashion since i was little, to be a model is my dream. So i apply for Nicola's model (Nikomo) audition by myself. Successfully winning the grand prize, and after becoming a model, i want to learn a lot more about fashion and as a model."

「休みの日は原宿に出かけてお買い物をしたり、街を歩いている可愛い人を見ては良い点を見習ったりしています。雑誌も何誌かチェックして、取り入れたいと思うポージングは切り抜いてノートに貼り、自分の撮影の時に実践しています」

"I like to go shopping in Harajuku when i got a day-off and watching the good point of the cute people who walks down on the street. Then looking at magazine and clipping a good pose for a reference while practicing to be photographed on my own."

モデルになった当初は先輩のポージングを携帯の動画で撮らせてもらい、参考にしたという努力家。その一方で学校の勉強もおろそかにせず、モデルの仕事は休日中心におこない、平日は学業に専念しているのだとか。

She even record video from her senpai's photoshoot to learn about the pose, the hard work was paid off. While she's busy with her work, she never neglected her study, her work as a model centered on holiday, while on weekday she dedicated herself for academic.

次週はそんな久間田さんの素顔に迫ります!

Next week will focused on different side of Kumada-san!
