    Sowie, belated as always.. but better late then never! This is a modifed & water-downed version of the original post from JPHIP.

    A post dedicated to the alluring yet mellow...
    桜井玲香
    Sakurai Reika
    Nogizaka's dear captain.​

    Regardless of which group one follows, there is always that special member that is revered & respected, that hold special responsibilities different from all other members. For Nogizaka, it is no different that there is a captain. What that is different tho, is instead of being revered & respected, she is known more as someone who is sporty yet mellow, someone who can dance alluringly & sing rly well; & someone who fails embarrassingly but cutely at her gags. Here's introducing a captain that members can tease at, Nogizaka's dear & unique captain Sakurai Reika!





    1. Tan-Skinned Beauty!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In a society where pale-skinned is preferred, & in a group dominated by pale-skinned members, Reika's tanned-skin is certainly an unique drawing point! Considering the next point, maybe this should come as no surprises.


    2. Athletic Prowess!
    [dm]xt5okt_sakurai-reika-iiii-2011-10-23-running-nogizakatte-doko-ep4[/dm]
    Nogizaka is not known for their athletic abilities. However should Nogizaka need to call on someone to do some athletic hard-lifting, Reika is definitely a candidate! As shown here, boy she can run! Look at her birthday special, & you will see that she can run since elementary school. In fact, maybe cuz she's such an awesome runner, her bonus video for the first single consist of pretty much just her running around, which is kind of sad. But the point is, she can run!



    3. Singing!
    [​IMG]
    Reika is not only an athletic girl good at running, but also one of Nogizaka's top singers! You can see this in when Reika sings in NogiDoko's Best Hit Setlist singing segment, such as when she peforms Friends (フレンズ), by REBECCA, Kobayashi Akiko's Koi ni Ochite - Fall in Love- (恋におちて -Fall in love-), & Kuraki Mai's Love, Day After Tomorrow.



    4. Alluring Dance!
    [​IMG]
    Reika can dance alluringly, not a surprise I guess considering her prior hip-hop dance lessons. This is something I started noticing after seeing her Halloween pose, hence this pic. You can see her Halloween posture here, & might wanna start paying attention to her when she dance!



    5. Fail Chara!
    Reika is known to some fans for her fail chara, which is ironic considering her position as captain. :lol:
    Being able to fail cutely is no easy task too however! But what exactly does she fails at?
    [dm]xtxh7w_sakurai-reika[/dm]
    Maybe fashion. I personally don't see anything wrong, but the fashion person do.

    [​IMG]
    On Tore maybe. View it here!

    Singing, sort of...? Click to see!

    [dm]xzzm42_reika-fail-gag-christmas[/dm]
    Most memorable, on her gag! Here's Reika performing her gag on the request of young fans, & the subsequent awkward reactions. This is only one of the many times she fail on her gag, here's another one of her gag fail for Megashaki making! How cute yet very embarrassing.



    6. Talented Ojousama!
    Despite her fail chara, Reika is by no mean talent-less. In fact, like many other Nogizaka members, Reika have since elementary been schooled in various different talents & specialties. These include swimming, piano, tennis, gardening, & hip hop dancing. Here's a birthday episode, introducing Reika's many talents! Password: nogizaka46

    Lastly, Happy Birthday Reika!
    May the new year bring new-found opportunities for you, & that you achieve greater success than even the year before!

    Reika-chan, my beloved captain. Recently, i'm so in love with reika. I fell in love with her fail character. And her cute clumsy reaction (especially when she's being teased by other members).

    Finally, I now have a Nogizaka46 oshi! Beautiful, talented, has a good character, not a center. Not that I consciously applied the standards when I was decided on Captain but she's just too good to resist. [hehe]

    Her fail chara can be compared to Takamina. Although she's the Soukantoku and is very talented, she's still bound to fail. [hehe]

    Also, I never noticed that she's kinda tan until I stumbled in this thread. Maybe because of the make-up.

    I've read some above. That was beautiful, rust-san. Sakurai Reika surely will become one of the most remembered captain of all time :cute: . But her fail character almost similar like our respective 48's former captain (now GM right), Takahashi Minami. Is it possible if someday Reika will become a Nogizaka46's GM? [think]
