Maimichan has been my favorite member of C-ute since they debuted and she has come quite a long way since her days in ZYX. If you had asked me what I thought of her back when she was in ZYX I might have not had a lot to say. Maimichan, perhaps out of all H!P members no one else has changed so dramatically in such a short period of time. It's very fitting that she has been appointed as leader of C-ute as she has a great maturity about her which exceeds the rest of the group and her hard working and professional work ethic has truly earned her this title. Maimichan's unique and c-ute voice also really stands out in C-ute's song releases and is easily identifiable as part of their trademark sound. Maimichan has one of the most radiant smiles and her beauty is completely undeniable as I think that she's one of Hello! Project's c-utest!!
I've scanned all 16 photos and included are 3 "metallic" type photos as well as a couple photos from the last Hello! Project Sports Festival where Maimichan showed that she is one of H!P's most athletic en route to winning the "MIP" award. When she competed in the long distance run, for awhile I thought that she may actually catch Konkon but when it comes to running Konkon is just amazing but still Maimichan stayed close till the end. Maimichan may not be able to throw darts 🙂 but I'd pick her for just about any athletic event.
Isn't she loverly!
