    • She currently holds the record for the longest time being a kenkyuusei in the 48 Group and SKE48, at 1,958 days.
  • She was popular on Google+ for keeping a video blog, which included interviews with other members and backstage footage from concerts.
  • She was known for her mentally strong attitude. She also did not hesitate to voice her honest opinions.
  • She often challenged fans on handshake events with questions to see if they were "true fans".
  • She was one of the 50 winners of the Young Jump Gravure Competition
  • She was one of three SKE48 Members to become the DDT Ironman Heavymetalweight Champion (A Comedic Championship from the Pro Wrestling Organization DDT Pro-Wrestling), the other ones being Akari Suda and Yuki Arai.
