This is the final part of a three part summary of Nakazawa Yuko's interview in the webshow Upcoming as part of Morning Musume's 20th Anniversary celebrations. Part 3 encompasses the last two minutes of the collective interview.


While Yuko said before that her favorite Morning Musume song is Kimagure Princess, her favorite MV is actually one of her own: Love Machine. She says the song is really what transformed the group and it showed off how charming they were, so she says that's one she really cares for.

She is then asked how she feels about Morning Musume after graduating and being able to see the group from the outside. She says that so many members have come and gone, and now at the 20th anniversary, Fukuchan is the leader, which she thinks probably surprises Fukuchan most of all. Yuko says that she doesn't really have a right to say much about the last 20 years since she graduated so early on in their history, but she hopes Fukuchan can appreciate that she's always watching them and looking forward to what they do. She has nothing but gratitude to the current members for bring the group all the way to 20 years and bringing new fans along with them. She's excited for what their future activities hold and hopes that she can one day share the stage with them again.

She ends the interview by thanking everyone for letting her look back on the last 20 years of Morning Musume and hopes that everyone will take of both the current members and the OG as they all work hard in their respective lanes.
