    Re: Kotani Riho / Team Kenkyuusei

    My NMB oshimen (for now...) <3

    She got a lot of attention during the auditions, to the point that I saw a lot of people call her one of the aces on 2ch, but since the group actually started it's been a bit different =( Looks quite different now that they idoled her up and got her to change back to her natural colour, rather than the gyaru look she had at auditions.

    Hoping you'll be in Team N, Riho!

    although i don't really have an NMB oshi, she was one of the 4 girls i hoped would make it into NMB during auditions so while i still don't have much on her. I'm still glad she made Team N.

    Just like to announce that Riho is my 2nd favourite girl in NMB. I've heard that she doesn't really talk much during MCs and is quite quiet, though is still an amazing performer.

    Does anyone else see the Umechan resemblance?

    ^Not quiet, but welcome to the club [clap]
    Also, I've just noticed Riho's height!! 150?! Even though her face is the most mature by far in NMB.
    Oh, well she's still gorgeous.

    Re:

    -> last part is 'we are with you', I think. Tsuite imasu also has the meaning: 'to be lucky', but that wouldn't fit here, I think.

    Gratz to Riho for getting #5 in S48's member of the year!!

    And doesn't Riho look like this Meisa girl?

    I'm not sure if it's the skin tone or angle, but I was definitely surprised with the resemblance!

    To say that I know nothing about NMB would be a huge understatement, but I saw her election poster and instantly fell in love. :cute:

    I want to know more? Why did she dress up like a yankee for this poster and her vid earlier? Is there any explanation for this?

    To me, she kind of looks like a young Nakama Yukie (Gokusen, Trick, Shinobi, etc.) Fight-o!

    Re: Kotani Riho / Team N

    Hope I'm not standing on anyone's toes translating this but Ripopo isn't listed on the Blog48 site as a translated blog.. and as it's about the girls performing in bloomers despite Reaching Number 1 I thought some people might like to read it.

    [​IMG]

    え。。うそん (.. no way)

    If we didn't reach number one in the Oricon weekly chart, we would have to perform in Bloomers.
    Thanks to everyone we received the number 1 spot, however we still performed "Zetsumetsu KuroKami Shoujo" in Bloomers.
    It was very embarrassing but It could be a valuable experience.
    But more than that, when I saw everyone's smiles It made me happy.
    While we were performing (singing and dancing) I saw everyone else and they were smiling too.
    (this bit may not be exact, but I think that's what is meant)
    When I saw the photos of us in bloomers I thought "These are great aren't they."
    Ripopo.

    1位とれなければ
    ブルマ公演という
    公約をしました(´-д-`)

    みなさんのおかげで
    1位とらせていただきましたが、
    絶滅黒髪少女を
    ブルマで披露しました!

    めっちゃ恥ずかしかったけど
    貴重な体験できました。

    そして何より
    みなさんの笑顔が見れたので
    私は幸せでした。


    踊って歌ってる時、
    他のメンバーの姿を見ては
    里歩も笑顔になってました(笑)


    写メは、ブルマを見て
    「これ、すごいな。」と
    思っているりぽぽです

    I'm really starting to like Ripopo. I like her snaggle tooth, and she's very pretty :D I'll be looking forward to seeing more of her in NMB48 :blush:
