In English, I actually just say oRio as Oreo. Neither are actually pronounced like that in Japanese however. I like oRio(Oreo) in English. The nickname doesn't seem that popular in the Japanese fandom either, currently anyways. While it's 3 syllables, I'm guessing when they chant her name it'll just be Rio-chan. oRio as a chant sounds kinda weird.
EDIT: Regarding highlights from now on
Last last week's update
EDIT2: Last week's update
Regarding "taco rice"
EDIT3: Been a bit busy this week and I guess leaning on that as an excuse to procrastinate so no update this week. Current plan is to catch up by next Sunday.
EDIT4: And fail. Just got my new schedule and I'll need to drop some of my free time. It doesn't look like I'll have time to do Rio highlights in the near foreseeable future. riohighlights on ameblo is on indefinite hiatus. Sorry to anyone that were still waiting for those.
09 September 2019 - 01:22 AM
Today was your first gravure shoot. How was it?
"It was completely different than shoots for raw photos so I didn't know what to do...... My expressions were stiff and giving natural expressions was particularly difficult. Since way back, not being photogenic has been a complex of mine so I'm not good when it comes to having my picture taken."
You know with today's shoot you were able to quickly react to the cameraman's instructions.
"Thank you very much. I originally liked idols so I would buy magazines and study the expressions and poses and pictured myself doing them! But as you'd expect, the actual thing is difficult."
After this, does it seem like you'll also come to like gravures?
"I think I'll come to enjoy them once I get used it. And in that case, I want to also challenge myself by going with a cool impression as the motif."
I'd like to see a cool ambiance as well! By the way, it's only been about 2 months since the three 15th members have met. What were your initial impressions for both of your generation mates?
"Although Homare-chan and I were together during the final judging of the training camp, we didn't talk much since I had this sense that everyone at the training camp was a rival. However my first impression was small face, slim, and long legs! I was thinking maybe she's a quiet one, but it turns out she's surprisingly talkative. (laughs) With Mei-chan, because she's from Hokkaidou, she's so fair-skinned! Furthermore, having seen her with just a glance, she had this aura where you just knew she would be selected as a member. I had to make sure to tightly hold on to my image of an idol and the things I was aiming for and although she's younger than me I respect her. I hope to work together with both of them and do our best from here on out."
For yesterday's question, many prefer to!!!!
I of course prefer to!!
I sprinkle loads since I'm team spicy
Sometimes we have like gyuudon through catering for the summer Hello concert and I would sprinkle it since not sprinkling shichimi is just not an option for me!!
Sometimes I'll be next to Juice=Juice's Inaba Manaka at the catering place and she always sprinkles it
It seems like Inaba-san is also team spicy...!!!
I'm thinking I should talk to her about that next time!! LOLOL
I'll work hard as we approach SONGS OF TOKYO on the 12th!!!
I applied but didn't get accepted
The surprise that she had applied LOLOL
I feel I'm really blessed that my first TV recording will be on such a grand stage!!
I, Kitagawa Rio! will do my best!
The photo is team same period ☺
Because the summer Hello concert has just ended, I won't get to see Juice=Juice's Matsunaga Riai and Kudou Yume, as well as Angerme's Hashisako Rin on a regular basis
I made plans, "Since I've talked to Riai-chan a lot about going somewhere, let's make sure to hang out okay!" LOLOL
It's hard fitting 6 people in to one photo LOLOL
I'll make an edit sometime tomorrow and add a Morning Diary highlight. I'm dropping doing a highlight for 15th gen's second appearance on Makino's radio show. Sorry to anyone that's still waiting for this.
"With fried chicken, do you prefer bone-in or boneless?"
For yesterday's question, many prefer bone-in!
I prefer bone-in!!
Since I'm the type that likes stuff like fried chicken cartilage, I love the part where you're eating bone-in and there's that chew to it
Rio had some business in the morning and at night so between that time she went to her grandparents' house. She got lots of handmade earrings and bracelets from her grandma. Picture is of one of those earrings.
Juice=Juice's Matsunaga Riai's blog:
We were laughing so much that it got blurred
A picture with
Whenever we meet
she would tell me
I never would've thought that you're younger than me!! LOL
There's a non-blurred one too! LOL
"What's the first thing you eat when you go to a buffet"
For yesterday's question, many start with salad!?
For me, I wonder... Roast beef?
Aren't buffet roast beefs delicious!?
I love them
For yesterday's question, matcha was populaaar!!!!
I like roasted green tea
Also, when I went to Kyoto for a school field trip before, the tea I bought was really delicious
I forget its name....
It was a tea that had a bit of a plum fragrance!!!
If I go to Kyoto again I really want to buy sooome!!
In addition, beeeeelieve it or not, today was!!!!!!!
the first time I was by myself for a job!!!
I was extremely nervous ♀♀
I got published on B.L.T
It's still a secret as to which month the edition will be and like the outfits ☺
I would like to show you some of the photos that were taken and I think they turned out rather well LOLOL
As you might expect, I was so nervous that my face just looked really tensed, but hopefully once I get used to it, the different number of expressions that I can do will increase!!
The photo is an off-shot~~~☺
It's outward curls!!!!!
15th gen web radio show, "Three Stations"(every Thursday)
Regarding the title "Three Stations"
They gave many suggestions and consulted with their manager before deciding on this title—with the intent to cherish the individuality of the 3 girls.
Rio: I'm looking forward to this since I very much love radio recordings and I feel it's really a great blessing to be given this opportunity.
Next Thursday's episode will have all 3 members on again.
I hope they'll have all three 15th gen on every episode. If not, I would really prefer at least 2. I really hope they don't do solo MCs again.
"Do you prefer pork cutlet sandwiches or shrimp sandwiches?"
For yesterday's question, a lot put pork cutlet sandwich!!
For me, the summer Hello concert show in Nagoya was the first(?) or was it.. well as I recall, it was the first time I ate shrimp sandwiches!!
From then on I just couldn't get enough!!
I started eating much more shrimp sandwiches ☺
Of course I also like pork cutlet sandwiches
Since today's schedule was, comparatively, one where you could relax so I took a nap!! LOLOL
Lately my sleep time has been on the short side so the moment I get in my bedding I'll seriously fall asleep after 3 seconds LOLOL
The moment I close my eyes I just have zero memory of everything [afterwards]!
It's been a super long time since I've been able to fall asleep right away like this... LOL
Today I left my house at around 6 in the evening and, the sky was dim!!!
It's autumn alright, I thought to myself
I reeeally liked it when I would like come home from school clubs and the sky was already dark
If it was dark I would be like Yeees! and frolic about LOLOL
While the air temperature hasn't caught up with autumn, it's great that you can feel it through the sky!!
During this period, right around the time I go home from school clubs, from the hallway of my house, the scene of the sky that you can see is extremely beautiful that I've been taking pictures almost every day
Sometimes it would be pink, sometimes purple, sometimes the clouds keeps going onnn and spreads out...
With the sky, since a certain scene can only be viewed at a certain moment, it's really wonderful isn't it
The photo is a full-length version from the 15th gen event!!
Homare-chan took it for me~✨
My hair suuure grew LOLOL
"What do you view as important when selecting shampoo?"
For yesterday's question, there were various answers!
For me, I wonder
I guess the smell and how it makes your hair smooth??
Lately I've repeatedly bought the same shampoo so I was thinking of perhaps changing to a new one
Today I have a, you could say, good fortune, or happy..
story about the time I was organizing my shelves since I bought some clothes!!
Before I joined MM my figure was a little plump..
therefore I don't know how many times the skirts I bought online would come and when I put them on I couldn't fit in them LOL
Therefore I was thinking of maybe putting them on and trying once more, when I put them on......
they easily fit!!!!!!!!
Ahh!! I'm so happy!!! This is cloud nine!!!!!
After joining MM I'm now going to the gym and even at home I do weight training without missing a single day so I was really happy LOLOL
But I'm still not there yet so I'll work hard and keep at it!!
The photo is on the close side & prettier-ish Kitagawa~~~
EDIT: Morning Diary highlights
Explaining her love of water
Kaga: What.. is it about water that you like?
Kaga, Rio: (laughs)
Morito: I know right. I want to hear this.
Morito: —I wanna hear, or rather—
Kaga: —is what.. you said you like right. That's pretty peculiar isn't it?
Kaga: Even I like water but my love doesn't go as far as that.
9:40 Rio: There are many varieties of water isn't there. Like overseas, or even in Japan—
Morito: —There's even hard water and soft water.
Rio: —there's also those. Each one has a different taste. So like... (nervous laugh)
Kaga: H-hold on, you're pulling away? Like where'd your fervor go?
Rio: (laughs) So like the vending machines have different water bottles lined up right? With those as well, each one, they all have a different taste.
Kaga: Uh huh.
Rio: —Among those, like, in order to come across the water that I like, I drank various bottles and well, this is the point I've reached—and well, I've talked about this a lot, even on like my blog—
Kaga: Ah—okay, okay, okay. How about this, I have this bottle of water here.
Kaga: Then, one more here; there's a different type of water.
Kaga: Can you explain the difference between these?
Rio: Eh? This one is (giggles)
Kaga: Yeah. The green one right? The green one.
Rio: The green—(giggles)
Kaga: The green one right?
Rio: The green—(giggles)
Morito: You can't say it.
Kaga: Can we say what it is?
Morito: It's fine if you point right.
Kaga: Ah we can say it. It's Irohasu and um Family Mart's Nansui.
Rio: With Irohasu, how do I put it, it goes down smooth and it feels like it melts into your body—
Mei: Is that what it's like?
Morito: (giggles) Such detail—
Rio: Like when it goes down smooth your throat takes it and um I mean to say it just flows—
Homare: It's easy to tell with Irohasu.
Kaga: Ah you understand
Rio: It's really smooth and your body (?)
Kaga: It's easy to take in right?
Rio: Right, it's easy to take in. And with this Family Mart one, this—
Kaga: —The Nansui—
Rio: —the Nansui, I drink it often. But like when you compare it to Irohasu it's just a bit um I wouldn't say it goes down smooth—however it's easy to drink. Japan's water bottles are honestly easy to drink.
Kaga: Huh... This is the first time I've seen Kitagawa-chan this energetic.
Morito: Yeah. Like, I knew she likes them but it's amazing that she's able to properly explain it.
Rio: Yes. It's PC certification. Um at school there's a computer class and in the 9th grade I took the 4th level [test], in the 10th grade I took the 3 level, in the 11th grade... I'll take the 2nd level; would be the system where you gradually take tests. So there's a computer class and—
Kaga, Morito: —Huh...
Kaga: Eh? What kind of certification is that? For typing?
Rio: Typing and also computer like knowledge?
Rio: Like what does this button do? Or like what is this wireless thingamajig—
Kaga: —Ehh? I don't know any of that!
Rio: —would be on the tests. Also, (?)
Morito, Homare(?), Kaga: That's amazing.
15:50 Rio: With this song, in like the music videos the outfits are really cute so I love them. It um sort of had this unusual sense of not being the Morning Musume that's existed up until now, with um like its melody and MV, so I selected it. Well then, please listen to "Sexy Cat no Enzetsu" with Morning Musume '16.
21:40 Morito: So the person you think is the most feminine, okay, let's have you point with our fingers on the count of 3?
Kaga: Ahh let's do that.
Morito: Oh! Wow, um 2 votes for Kitagawa-chan. And 1 vote for Okamura Homare-chan.
22:00 Morito: Why did you select Rio-chan?
Mei: She often would like go around carrying a sports towel.
Rio(?): (giggles) That's—(laughs)
Morito, Kaga: (laughs)
Kaga(?) Well that's okay.
Morito: She would smell good with that sheet, right? (laughs)
Kaga: You would, you would.
Mei: Also, um she's really knowledgeable with make-up and stuff. Eyeline? I couldn't draw my eyeline so I would have Rio-chan do it for me. Even like the hair iron, she kindly taught me about things like that so I think she's really feminine.
22:35 Kaga: And for Homa-chan, why did you pick her?
Homare: With Rio-chan, when I was like, "I've also never really used makeup", she kindly taught me stuff like, "Ah, with this narrow stretch you should extend it a bit more like this"
Rio(?), Kaga: (laughs)
Homare: —or like "You should apply a bit more pressure here." Also she would teach me and be like, "It might be cuter if you do this like this."
Kaga, Morito: Ohhh.
Kaga: Being like a big sister—
Morito: —Do you like makeup, Rio-chan?
Rio: I..do like makeup. A while back—um, before I entered [high] school, when I was leaving from school, all the girls around me, they all did makeup already so like I naturally was just like ah, you need to do makeup.
Kaga: So that's it. And Rio-chan voted for Homa-chan.
Rio: Like her sense of (?) is extremely good.
Mei: Ahh, I know what you mean.
Rio: She has many different clothes(?) as well. And they're all really cute.
Kaga: But you're right, and surprisingly, it sort of seems like Homa-chan has a lot of sporty clothes.
Rio: She has a lot. And since she has a nice figure everything just gets accentuated.
Morito: I know right.
Kaga: Ahh, that's right, that's right.
23:53 Morito: And besides, aren't they're all surprisingly tall?
Kaga: Yes! I did think that.
Morito: Like with Homa-chan. Mei-chan as well. Rio-chan, I don't particularly—
Kaga, Homare(?), Mei(?): (laughs)
Rio: What about me? What about me?
Kaga: "What about me?" (laughs)
Morito: How many cm are you?
Rio: I was 153cm but um after I started stretching, for dance [lessons], I grew taller!
Kaga: No way!
First impression of Kaga and Morito
26:14 Homare: But like when I talk to you it's really like, when you're laughing your expression is really cute so my heart just throbs a bit.
Homare: It's like, it's pretty much the case with everyone in 15th gen but we just start smiling and grinning.
28:16 Rio: With Morito-san, even in the beginning, even when we just met, I was like, Her color is white! She's so cute! (laughs)
Rio: Honestly. And like—
Homare(?): —Her pure beauty.
Kaga: Her pure beauty, that's like—
Rio: —Um, the first time, um during the live broadcast, already I was like (?) is amazing. Like while I was nervous, honestly starting with that stage, in a good way, I was annihilated(?)—by everyone.
Morito, Kaga: (giggles)
Rio: She's so cute! was my initial impression. Even now, I think you're really cute. And I think your personal clothes are really cute—since I joined we really like, lately we really have like lots of lessons so I've realized that.
Morito: Thank you very much.
29:02 Rio: With Kaga-san, my initial impression was—honestly I was a bit scared.
Kaga: That's right.
Morito: It's okay.
Rio: I was so scared I—
Kaga: —It's okay, you'll get used to it and it'll be fine. Yeah.
Rio: —I was so scared I (laughs)
Kaga, Morito: (laughs)
29:10 Rio: However, like sonce I actually tried talking to you, you were really kind. So like EhH!? I like love you too much! (laughs)
Kaga: —What's wrong? Did something happen? Let's calm down for a moment.
Morito: Yeah, that's right; like the 15th gen probably loves you to pieces.
Kaga: Do you really think so?
Rio: Yeah, I love you so much that it was a problem, just now—
Kaga: —A problem—
Rio: —Just now Homare-chan was talking about it right, like I would just get jealous—
Rio: I would just be like, "What! Whyyy!?"—
Homare: I, um, you(Kaga) put up a picture of me on your blog right? For the Sendai show.
Rio: (quietly laughs)
Homare: That's when Rio-chan got really mad at me.
Morito, Rio, Mei: (giggles)
Kaga: Her jealousy... (chuckles) Not good, not good.
30:13 Kaga: How about this, I'll put up a picture of Kitagawa-chan for today's blog.
Rio: (girly noises; AKA gasp, squeals)
Morito: Oh! Ain't that nice.
Kaga: It's settled.
Morito: From now on—
Rio: —I might not be able to sleep.
Kaga: Make sure to go to sleep!
Kaga: Heeey, lacking sleep is not good! Please go to sleep okay.
Morito: Ahh so funny.
35:16 Kaga: By the way, Kitagawa-chan, currently is like your true nature showing? Not really? Still feigning innocence?
Rio: I think I'm still feigning.
Kaga: Ah, you're still feigning.
Rio: But just before, when I was talking about you, it showed a bit.
Kaga: I see, that was your true nature.
Morito: Hold on, hold on. I'm scared instead.
Morito: That's her true nature! Like, um after Kitagawa-chan said she likes you, (?) like it seems like she's always grinning when ever you said Kitagawa.
Rio, Mei(?): (laughs)
Kaga: Oh god oh god.
Morito: I sort of can only see it like that so it's like uh oh. (laughs)
Kaga: Not good. This is not good is it.
10 questions, speed round
Rio: Alto recorder practice for music class.
(Quick answer is first, followed by afterward explanation)
37:17 Rio: I'm really good at practicing the alto recorder. After I look at the sheet music and play it smoothly once, I can play it without making any mistakes.
Kaga: Eh? The heck. Isn't that a special skill?
Morito, Mei: Eh? That's amazing.
Kaga: That's amazing.
Rio: Like at school, four times—there was an alto recorder test and I got perfect on all of them.
Kaga: Huh... that is amazing.
Morito: You're amazing.
"A fashion that you like?"
Rio: Ulzzang fashion.
37:47 Rio: Lately people have been telling me my fashion style sure is odd but I don't know, like in terms of brand, like, I don't know, rather than Japanese brands it's mostly like oversea...
Kaga: That's surprising.
"What's your current obsession?"
Rio: Current obsession? Looking at pictures of Kaga-san.
Morito, Kaga: (laughs)
Morito: (whispers) She's for real. She's for real.
38:02 Kaga: (returning for an explanation from Rio) And then your current obsession is—(?)
Morito, Rio, Homare, Mei(?): (laughs)
Kaga: Dropping one of them, let's see, japansese food, chinese, western food, you prefer western food.
40:05 Kaga: (returning for an actual explanation this time) And then um what was it? Your current obsession, what was it?
Rio: (giggles) Looking at your videos and pictures.
Homare: Um there's that scene that you like from the PV right?
Rio: (girly noises) Okay so um...
Morito, Kaga: Go ahead. (chuckles)
Rio: (laughs) Um Brand New Morning—what part was it again!?—when Kaga-san, like there's a part where you're in two lines and Kaga-san does this and then falls back, at one point.
Morito: Eh? The part's not getting conveyed. (laughs)
Kaga: I've no clue. I wonder what part.
Rio: Um, h-how do I describe it?
Homare: She like grasps—
Rio: —Yeah, there's a choreography where you take a grasp and then fall back—that part's so cool!
(I think Kaga's solo part is what Rio was talking about)
Kaga: Oh! I myself don't recall it at all.
Morito: Umm like we can't. We can't have Kaedii and Rio-chan do stuff together like radio shows.
Kaga, Rio, Homare(?), Mei: (laughs)
Morito: Right now they happen to be sitting next to each other—
Kaga: —That's right. She just went and sat next to me.
Morito: No more. It's forbidden now. (laughs)
Kaga: Please follow that.
Morito: (laughs) Ah so funny!
"Do you prefer Japanese food? Chinese food? Western food?"
Rio: Western food.
38:14 Kaga: What dish do you like in particular? Er rather than what dish...
Rio: Like there's pretty much nothing I don't like so basically I like everything. But like if I was thinking of eating something, (?) it's generally western food.
"For you, what's a comfort?"
Rio: Comfort. Kaga-san's smile (laughs)
Kaga: (laughs) My!?
Morito: (laughs) Come on.
Kaga: (returning for an explanation from Rio) And for you, what's a comfort—ah! Let's leave this behind as well.
Kaga: We'll leave this behind for a moment, let's see, you like spring.
"Spring or fall(?), which do you like more?"
Rio: My favorite color is pink. Like the world really becomes pinkish doesn't it?
Kaga: That's right, with like the cherry blossoms.
Rio: Spring is like pinkish. Like there's cherry blossom mugs and like they would sell those and link I think those are really cute.
Rio: Favorite meat? I wonder—samgyeopsal.
Kaga: (returning for an explanation from Rio) The question from Homare-chan, favorite meat, samgyeopsal.
Homare: It's good right.
Kaga, Morito: I like it.
Kaga: I like it too. Everyone likes it.
Rio: (snickers) It's a meerkat.
"An anime that you like?"
Rio: This is one I saw a long time ago, Yumeiro Patissiere.
"Do you prefer dogs or cats?"
Rio: I prefer cats.
41:17 Rio: I really like the tune for this song and I particularly like the B-melody. Like it's easy to get stuck in your head. Also, there's like quite a boom boom rhythm in it and I really like the (?) so I selected it. "Ai no Gundan", with Morning Musume.
I noticed Rio almost had no issues with saying what she wanted to say even when senior members chimed in and interrupted. Normally new members are more reserved and will yield to the senior member but Rio generally just kept on going. I also noticed that she tends to just say whatever she's thinking—which can result in rambling. She's a straight-shooter. One of the things I like about her is her honesty.
Kaga still has yet to upload that picture of Rio that she said she would. Only a photo of everyone that was on the show was posted on Kaga's blog post for that day and there's been no 2-shot or solo shot of Rio that's been posted.
A new Pokemon Go event started yesterday and I played a little too much and neglected working on this. It's not a good excuse but it's the one I'm using since I mentioned this would be up on the 9th and it's the 10th(Pacific Standard Time).
01 September 2019 - 03:42 PM
Rio talks about Kaga:
The photo is from yesterday's Hello Concert ☺
I know right! Did you realize it!?
While Kaga-san was sitting behind me,
she was kindly doing 15 with her hands!!!!
Since I'm only about 98% confident on whether or not the 15 is of 15th gen, I can't say that it's absolutely the case, but well that's probably it right!!!!!
The moment I saw this photo
you know I even just went
I love you!!!!!!
Lately I can't stop my love that even I'm scared LQTM(laughing quietly to myself)
Before the show the other day, Kaga-san was 2 spots in front of me when we were forming a circle and even though I wanted to go stand next to her, I was wondering what to do and itching to go when Homare-chan kindly led me and I was able to go stand next to her!!!
But when I was thinking, "I wonder if she's drawn by me", and I said, "I will definitely make Kaga-san drawn to me", and although she wasn't put off, she was a bit scared right, and said "Okay" though, but since it's okay if she's still not drawn to me, in the future I think maybe I'll go and express my love; would be my report
I love you!!!!!!!!!
Angerme's Oota Haruka said Rio's features are defined and she's very cute. Rio totally has this sense of an older sister, to the extent that you wouldn't even think Rio and her are the same age.
Nonaka's instagram story
Top says "sparkle" and Nonaka said the same. Bottom says "15th gen's Kitagawa Rio-chan"
Those run-off one sentence paragraphs are the case in the original Japanese as well. I imagine what was written went straight from mind to keyboard and her raw though process remained unedited.
It seems Rio not only inherited Ogata Haruna's sea blue, she also inherited her obsession of Kaga.
"Why didn't you post highlights for Maria's radio show?" The answer to this, among many others, is cause I'm lazy. I left it to the last moment and when I found the fan recording for the 15th gen debut event I listened and worked on highlights for that instead. Should be posted next week. Was also what I said last week so yeah, don't hold your breath.
While I somewhat went and exposed my normal self in yesterday's blog....
the fact is I can talk about that almost a hundredfold!!
Tomorrow I would like to completely reveal that side
Those that are coming, let's enjoy it together ✨
Rio talks about Hirose:
The photo is with Kobushi Factory's Hirose Ayaka-san ♡
It was also written on Hirose-san's blog but we have a common hobby...
That hobby, although I realized—from when we first met in July—that we had the same one!! I've been nervous and haven't really been able to approach her about it
The other day, when I was drinking some water at Hello Concert, since she was next to me, now's my chance!!! I thought and went and talked to her
We're even the same when it comes to liking Kaga-san
I want to talk to her a lot more ✨
Hirose's blog from the 24th:
Today something that was happy!
is Morning Musume '19's Kitagawa Rio-chan
she herself kindly came and talked to me!
She discovered a common hobby and kindly came up and talked to me ✨
According to what I asked her about Kaga-san
it would seem that she likes Kaga-san...
Looks like we'll get along. (laughs)
In regards to Kaga-san,
although she told me, "Perhaps we may not get along", we will get along.
I'm okay with that, I'm not like one of those people that dislike others similar to myself.
It would be nice if we became good friends
School has started for me as well
I'll do my best both with my studies [and activities]
If there's anything I don't know with my studies, I think I'll go and ask big sister Rio-chan
Please and thanks, Rio-chan
Reading is listed as a hobby for Hirose and is the only mentioned thing they have in common that I'm aware of.
I would want to vertically fly up hiiigh above the clouds!!
I want to go right next to an airplane and ride on its wing
15th gen debut event highlights(fan recording, new highlights and added details to previously posted highlights)
Fan recording of 1st show. Credit and thanks to whoever originally recorded and uploaded it.
7:17 Yokoyama announced the 15th gen cute moments she looked for and gathered.
Yokoyama: Let's just say she loves Kaga Kaede too much.
Rio? : That was harsh!
Yokoyama: Among the members I think everyone knows.
Ikuta: Yeah, it's amazing. You realize it right? You know, you should be a bit more... careful. Be careful a bit.
Yokoyama: So like what is it about her that you like? What part do you like?
Rio: Eh? "What part?" I'm not sure but it's just "Love!"
Yokoyama: Ah I see. You like her like that(?).
Ikuta: So like the other day, at the Hello Project concert right, everyone did "Dancing, Singing, Exiciting" and the moment she was next to Kaga they were right in front of me, and she was like "Ahh..." (?) She really likes Kaga.
9:57 "What is your treasure?"
Rio: My cell phone.
10:05 "Your weak point?"
Rio: My legs are short.
10:13 "What are you into right now?"
Rio: Eh? Watching videos of Kaga-san.
Yokoyama: Oy, oy, oy.
12:38 Ikuta: Kaga's—Among the videos you've seen recently, is there one you especially like?
Rio: Ummm..Kaga-san in um Pharaoh no Haka, the um scene when she's um uh talking—acting with Nonaka-san and um she gets stabbed by Nonaka-san, the part afterwards when she falls down is just so cool—
Yokoyama: You know you're really...
Ikuta: Even the fans have realized it.
10:28 "What's the most delicious dish that you can make?"
Rio: Pickled plum omelette.
10:37 "Something you're recently excited about is?"
Rio: Some new cosmetic implements I bought.
10:49 "When you entered Morning Musume '19 and beforehand, for whom did your impression change?"
Rio: Satou Masaki-san.
23:29 Rio learned the flute for 7 years, starting in grade 4. She picked Memory because MM has many upbeat songs but she thought this ballad was rather rare and would be a fit for the flute.
Pefect match game
26:15 "Standard summer break assignment"
Rio: Self-elect research project
Mei: Self-elect research project
Homare: Arithmetic drills
27:52 "A school event that everyone can get fired up over"
Homare: Sports festival
Mei: Cultural festival
Rio: Music performance competition
30:02 (With her "supporter" role, one of the things Yokoyama had to do was drink a super sour or bitter concoction as a penalty for a mismatch. This question is a freebie so that Yokoyama can avoid the punishment)
"A cute animal"
Yokoyama: They'll for sure match with this! You'll for sure match with this, right?
Ikuta: 3, 2, 1.
Rio, Homare, Mei: (answers sound like a mismatch)
Ikuta: Wait, wait! Hang on a sec. I like, I gave you a freebie question right?
Yokoyama: Can we get the answers? Can we hear the answers in turn starting from here.
Yokoyama: Right. Uh huh.
35:22 Rio completely came up with her signature herself. The ミ looking part on the left side are the whiskers. The two circles above that are the ears. Rio thought it might be cute if she added the face(the =) part) as well.

In the green room,
Rio-chan was practice playing the flute the whole time (^^♪
Just making sounds with it is amazing enough, but to beautifully play a song like that
that's Rio-chan for you
"How did you come to know about Morning Musume?"
For yesterday's question, there were many people that have known about Morning Musume since the time we formed and as I expected, Morning Musume sure is amazing!!!
Since 22 years ago... that's amazing...
I have a feeling a group that lasts this long won't emerge even in the future!!
A one and only existence ☺
I'll do my best in hopes that in about 10 years there will be people that kindly say, "I came to know Morning Musume through Kitagawa Rio!!!"
Another part of Rio's blog:
Okay so after that something sad happened
My umbrella broke
My folding umbrella, when I went to open it an arm of the frame broke....
I was super shocked
I break umbrellas so easily that.. it honestly just breaks right away!!! in the past my mother would often get mad at me LOLOL
Homare-chan, since the fall tour is also approaching, please get lots of rest and come back fully recovered!!!!
I'm just worrying and worrying
Mei commented about the recording for Morning Diaries, which they had last week, and noted that it was "Rio World Max."
Kaga also commented about it on the 23rd:
We went and talked a lot about the 15th gen,
reaching sides of them that we didn't know about and..
these 3 are interesting.
There might even be a talk portion with just the 15th gen!?
Please look forward to it d( )
"What was something happy that happened to you today?"
Yesterday's question, I forgot to put up my own answer ♀♀
I already knew about Morning Musume since I was a elementary student!!!
everyone knows Morning Musume after all....
We even did stuff like sing Love Machine at the teacher's desk at school
That brings back memories!! LOLOL
This is today's photo (*''▽'')
MeiMei & RioRio
Once again, it's a photo with Rio-chan
It's a continuation of yesterday's photo!!
We're steadily getting closer
For yesterday's question, there were many that answered drinking things like hot water because it warms your body!!
Since I wanted to know I'll take all the answers you've given into consideration okay!! LOLOL
H!P concert highlight
Rio: Sasaki-san as well as Kaga-san, they've seriously thought about things like how to dance in order to look cool or how to be shot in order to look cool, and they move accordingly—I can tell just watching from the stage wing.
Beyond's Satoyoshi Utano put a diamond next to Rio's name, as opposed to colored hearts for the other 15th gen, for the selfie she took with 15th gen. I'm guessing it's because the blue heart that's available is regular blue rather than light blue so she went with the diamond as it's closer to sea blue. Nevertheless, the diamond does stand out.

As mentioned, while all of the listed goals have been achieved by MM at some point or another, only a few of the members have actually managed to accomplish more than one or two. MM solo radio shows are the exception rather than the rule. I can't even remember the last MM collab CM. The miso soup one I think? Centers are pretty much in every song but how many girls actually get to be center? How many graduate without ever being featured? Same thing with photo books. The terrestrial program can be TV as well and I'm pretty happy with the strides they've made with this in recent years.
You probably wouldn't call her dreams overly ambitious as they're well within the realm of possibility, but it's good to remain realistic while being ambitious. It'll be interesting to see just how far someone with this many aspirations can go and witness their achievements along the way.
TL;DR: I was also impressed and felt she that she was rather ambitious for a new member.
