Author’s Comments: Takahashi Ai is my favorite Morning Musume member. She has charisma on and off stage, an adorable personality and an amazing voice. She was a hard worker and I believed that she deserved her leader and center position. I was heartbroken when she left the group but I am happy to see that she is still active in the entertainment industry and is starting a family of her own.
