New Member Special Edition
Q: Please tell us what your motive was for auditioning for Morning Musume。 '14.
Ogata Haruna: I became a high school student, so thought I would challenge something.
And since I admired Morning Musume。
Nonaka Miki: I previously liked Morning Musume。, and got a push from the lyrics "Ima shika dekinai kimi ga shitai koto wo shinayo" (Do the things you want which you only can now), I thought I'd join Morning Musume。 so I could do my beloved dancing!
Makino Maria: I met Oda Sakura-san and Hamaura Ayano-san at the Morning Musume。 11th gen member audition, and thought that I wanted to join the Hello Pro Kenshuusei too.
Haga Akane: I took the Morning Musume。 12th gen member "Mirai Shojo" audition, and though I was there until the end it turned out I was not eligible, so I joined thinking that I want to grow even more.
Q: Please tell us what your motive was for becoming a Hello Pro Kenshuusei.
Murota Mizuki: I've always wanted to be an idol since I was little,
and though I did things like audition for Morning Musume。-san,
I failed, so when I heard about the Kenshuusei audition,
my mother told me, "Will you try auditioning? There's probably a chance you can debut, right?"
and the result of that audition is that I passed!
Aikawa Maho: I failed a Morning Musume。 audition, and so auditioned for the Hello Pro Kenshuusei.
Sasaki Rikako: I auditioned for Morning Musume。 and failed, so I joined them.
Q: Please tell us your feelings now you've joined your groups.
Ogata Haruna: Though I have nothing but uneasiness with dancing and singing, I want to do the best I can since there are also lots of things I'm looking forward to.
Nonaka Miki: Since I'm happy that the dream I was having became reality,
I really felt that my dream of having too much fun would come true!
Makino Maria: I don't even really feel it now,
and so just start saying, "Maria, you're really awesome! You're in Morning Musume。!"
Haga Akane: I was really surprised!

just imagining the events and such I'll be doing from now on gets me so excited!
