Ooh, I like her! She reminds me of someone like Ogawa Makoto- confident, quick, and well-spoken. Hopefully the group gets time on talk shows; I think she could shine there.

I agree! I also thought of Ogawa Makoto after hearing Rio speak. I'm curious about how she'll perform. 😊

Welcome to the group Rio-chan!! Wishing you all the best ❤️

She shares the same birthday as Reina Tanaka... She looks like young Maachan...

 

I guess she was destined to be a Morning Musume !

Agreed. My first thought was Masaki when I first saw her.
Might be a calculated move lol

I agree. The first time I saw her in the reveal clip, I thought she reminded me of the early days of Masaki when she smiles. Rio also gives off vibes very similar to Beyoooonds' Miyo. Her low voice, demure and calm presence.

Her first activity will be on july 9th.The new JJ already blogged for the first time so i hope she will post ger first entry soln.

Personally, the thing that caught my eyes was how confident she looked during her audition. If she's already at that level, i can't imagine how good she will be with training.

Wow she looks so different with her hair down! I love it <3

 

Little quick translation of what she wrote in her first blog post:

She introduces herself as the 16th gen member of Momusu and writes down a few things about her.

New to us: Her favorite food is curry, but she can't handle hot curry so she prefers butter chicken. Her favorite sport is dodgeball but she likes ball sports in general.

When she heard that she had passed the audition, she didn't really feel like she really passed, but when the official announcement to the public happened, that's when she realized it was true. She expresses her happiness to be part of the Hello!Project she loves. She's a little worried because she's the only one in her generation, but she wants to work hard.

 

She ends her post with the words "日々前進あるのみ" which are a little hard to translate. It basically means "There is progress every day", but also kinda like "Just keep going every day!". It's an interesting phrase and I'm not sure how to translate it, but for me, it gives off the feeling that Rio is kinda smart and good with words. ^_^

 

Since her announcement I have been thinking about what it must be like for her to join a group alone as a kouhai, when the senpai closest in age have 3 years more experience than you. It's definitely not easy, so I really wish her all the best so she can catch up. I'm cheering on her :good:

 

By the way: After her first blog post, the hashtags "first blog" and "Sakurai Rio" were trending on Twitter. :lol:

Seems like lately H!P is looking for "aristocratic type" beauties. The 2 Rios or Marine looks like princess from a classic japanese movie.

tbh I don't really think she looks like Maa-chan...she has not very prominent face features like Endo Akari has but she looks quiet unique to me.

She is in the same school grade as Homatan and Meichan, I think they'll bond right away and will help her transition as they already know how tough it is to go it alone. Rio seems quite fond of her already. :)

Rio will only be an MC for the next tour. I assume Sakura and Akari too. But the good news is that Tsunku said the girls are already working on a new song. So we might get a digital release or a 2nd single for Rio's debut ^^
