Natsuyaki Miyabi joined Hello Project in 2002 as a member of Hello Project! Kids. Since then she has become a main vocalist of Berryz Kobo and Buono!
- Hello! Project Station Dance Club
Miyabi was my favorite member of Berryz Kobo for a short period of time. However, Buono was the first Hello Project act I came across and Miyabi was the first member that I really took interest in. I remember wanting to know every thing about each member of Buono and being blown away by the fact that she was a few years older than me. She looked so much younger! I have been keeping a close eye on her since then. I confess that there was a time that I found Miyabi to be a bit boring, but it was her really just maturing into the young lady she is today.
I admire Miyabi for her vocal talent. She was always one of the best singers in Hello Project and has considerably improved since her debut in 2004. If one watches all the live performances and music videos that Miyabi has starred in from debut until now, they will hear an improvement in the stability and range of her voice.
Miyabi is also a good dancer. She is one of the few members of the current Hello Project roster (including Shimizu Saki, Yajima Maimi, Hagiwara Mai and Nakajima Saki) that can truly put on a sexy performance when necessary. There are many skilled dancers in Hello Project, but I believe that Miyabi is capable of feeling the atmosphere of the song and producing moves that fit this atmosphere and leaves the audience to be engaged.
I love Miyabi’s style. She is the trendiest person in Hello Project along with Iikubo Haruna. Her gorgeous looks and great taste in fashion makes her stand out and captures people’s interest.
Following Berryz Kobo’s hiatus Miyabi plans on taking a break. She stated that she still wants to sing and maybe enter the fashion industry. I really hope to see her in the entertainment industry in the future!
Bye Bye Mata Ne, Natsuyaki Miyabi and thank you for all you have done for Hello Project.
