Day 21: The idol you have the most respect for or admire?
I have respect for many, if not all, artists in the organization. But I greatly admire and have respect for three Hello Project artists:
Mano is a beauty. She is fun and always wears a smile. I admire her for her positive attitude to almost everything and every instance. I admire her for her youthful appearance and great voice. I also admire her for her love of not only JPOP but also KPOP music. I respect her for her commitment to her music and Hello Project. She was just a mere Hello Pro egg when she joined Hello Project and unlike many Eggs, she continued to commit to the organization even till her date of her debut. You can see that she’s a hard-working soloist. In a group, you have people to support you, keep you company and guide you along your path of stardom. However, Mano is alone. She performs and alone and she represents herself and Hello Project. This is a lot of hard work and I respect her because she keeps smiling brightly.
As the Captain of Berryz Koubou, one would expect that Saki would get the most promotion. Unfortunately, reality states otherwise. She barely gets solo lines within songs and gets the least camera time. However, I respect the fact that this does not discourage her will and energy to perform and do her best. She still puts on a great show and acts like a great Captain by guiding and supporting her fellow members. It’s also great that she can build and show her confidence through dance.
I have said on many previous occasions why I admire and respect Risa so I’ll be brief. I respect and admire her commitment to Hello Project. She has been the longest serving member of Morning Musume (eleven years) and does her best to be the best leader she can. She does not only focus and help her Morning Musume chicks but also her fellow Hello Project members. She is a wonderful singer and I love her deep voice. Her charisma and smile continue to be charming and I hope that she keeps her spunky personality even after she leaves Hello Project.
