[Translation] MM'14 members: angel or devil? by Michishige Sayumi

How would you divide the members of Morning Musume ’14 into the categories of angel and devil? Who is pure-hearted like an angel, and who is sneaky like a little devil? Please choose, and tell us your reason why.

I think Fukuchan is an angel. She even looks sort of white and gives off a fluffy sort of feeling. Furthermore she’s also really kind, and she has the image of being always pure-hearted and innocent, although she sometimes ends up complaining about things. (lol) She’s that kind of angel.

Surprisingly I think Eripon might be an angel too. She might seem like the type who would kick others aside in her rush to push to the front, but she’s actually just trying her best to make an effort, be it for work or on variety shows. Well that’s how I see it, but even though she’s trying so hard she can’t seem to get it completely right and it seems like a fruitless effort, but I believe her heart probably doesn’t have any darker sides to it.

Sayashi is probably a devil (lol) Sayashi is really good at it, you see. Sometimes I feel like she’s thinking “If I say something like this at this time, Michishige-san would be happy about it maybe?”. Of course she has plenty of moments where she’s naturally cute, but she also has moments where she’s obviously planned it, but when suddenly turns around and goes “Michishige-san~”, her expression is at that moment would be even more amazing if she did it without thinking about it first. I kind of do want her to be wondering “will Michishige-san be happy if I do this?”, and I also want her to do it for my sake. But also, if she does it naturally without thinking of all those things, the quality of her smile would be even better, and I find it really cute too so sometimes I think it’d be great if she did it naturally too. Also, I think Sayashi also plans her comments beforehand, but that’s really good for her to do too. She’s not really the kind who just catches what’s going on on the spot to make a joke out of it, and in a way it’s a little bit devilish of her to have carefully planned everything beforehand, but basically the part where she’s seriously planning ahead makes me think of her as a little devil.

I think Suzuki’s an angel. She laughs when she wants to, and eats when she wants to (lol) It’s not about purity or anything, but I feel like she lives honestly, true to herself.

Iikubo has to be a devil. No matter how you look at it (lol) At first, just for a moment, a really short moment (lol) I felt for that little moment that she could be an angel (lol) But after spending some time with her, I really do feel like she’s a good girl, pure and kind with a good heart…however at the same time it also feels like she plotted to make everyone feel that way about her , even though she’s really a good person underneath, but since she goes around praising everyone, I can’t help but feel that “oh so she’s like that too”, and it sometimes makes me a bit sad and lonely because “I’m not the only one she does this to”, and that sense of possessiveness she makes people feel makes her sort of like a devil.

As for Ishida, I wonder~ At first I thought she might be a little devil, but recently I think she might be more of an angel. I always said here that Ishida’s the shy type, and she’s the type who is always thinking “I have to work hard, I have to lead everyone”. She’s also looks like the type to think “I’m good at dance, so I have to look after the rest of 10th gen”, and I end up with the image of her always doing her best at things. But as time goes by, even though that part of her hasn’t changed, in a good way I have started seeing more sides of Ishida, and she’s been getting more interesting as a result (lol) So in that sense she makes it fun for everyone around her, which makes me think she’s an angel.

Kudo is an angel too. If she grew out her hair she’d be even more of an angel (lol). If she were to just grow it out a little more, it’d be just exactly what I want, just that little bit more. And if we put her in frilly clothes, she’ll look like a perfect angel, and Kudo is such that her personality is pretty straightforward, so it feels like she’s concealing nothing of herself, and that makes me think that she’s an angel.

Sato is completely a devil. There’s no way she’d have a personality like that without being a devil (lol) And furthermore she treats everyone around her as if they were devils like her too. Sato tends to say “I hate you” and start having childish squabbles with the other 10th gen members, and most of the time she’s like “I won’t ever talk to you again” or “I’m telling Minishige-san!!” (lol) But more than her being a devil, it’s just that everyone has grown to accept that that’s Sato’s personality. And if Sato didn’t acknowledge this about the people around her, it’d be a problem too, but as a member of Morning Musume, it feels like “Sato’s just like that”, and because we understand this, we are able to have fun with it. Especially within 10th gen itself. That’s why this turned out so well, and it allows Sato to unleash her devil side freely.

I think Oda Sakura-chan is also a devil too. It isn’t like there’s anything about Oda’s personality that marks her as one, or that something happened or that she did anything backstage that would make her one, but she’s definitely no angel (lol). How do I put it, she just has a really unique air to her, not just weird or strange, but truly unique. It’s like she’s in her own universe. When it comes to angels, I feel like they have to be all “If I do this others will be happy”, and they have to be somehow cute too. But for Oda when she says something it’s kind of like “Oh, is that so?”, and she prefers to be cool and all, and in that sense she’s more a mysterious girl than she is a devil.

some I don't agree with, but of course, Michishige knows them better.
Sayashi, absolute devil. at tiems she reminds me of Reina or Miki. that bold character with a grin for abusing other members. :P

Oda, a devil? maybe? i don't know so much about her character. she always comes off as a background member, but with a center role in the group. I would say she reminds me of Niigaki, great voice, but working the background.

michishige's pov on the girls was fun to read. thanks for sharing
