Day 17: Your first Idol (first one you noticed/were exposed to)?
As I said previously, the first group that I was exposed to from Hello Project was Buono! because of the anime Shugo Chara. However, the first idol from Buono! that really caught my eye was Natsuyaki Miyabi.
Her beauty is what caught my attention initially. Compared to Momoko and Airi, Miyabi posed a more mature image. I actually thought she was in her twenties not knowing she was around the same age as I was! She was (and still is) quite beautiful and brings about a “cool” aura to the group.
At first, I thought she was the leader of Buono! until I learned more about the group and Hello Project. I admired and favoured her for quite a while until I broaden from Buono! to the rest of Hello Project. Soon her personality seemed bland and monotone as compared to the other bigger and more outgoing personalities found in Hello Project. Miyabi is still very beautiful in my eyes but her personality seems too bland.
Despite her personality and looks, Miyabi has the voice of an angel. She sings with fluidity and hardly misses high notes or croaks in live performances. Her dancing is also fair. With a bit more practice I can see her going into the entertainment world as a soloist.
