Early LifeEdit

Arihara Kanna was born on June 15, 1993 in Kanagawa, Japan to a couple whose names are undisclosed.


Arihara Kanna joined Hello! Project in 2004 from the Hello Pro Egg auditions. She was a member of Tomoiki Ki wo Uetai, but then graduated to be placed into ℃-ute in January 2006.

She was one of the members of Little Gatas who was not added to the other Gatas teams.


On February 26, 2009, it was announced that Arihara was having difficulty performing onstage due to having a bunion deformity, and would not be able to attend the HELLO! 10TH PARTY2 event that week. She would also be absent from Hello! Project activities, including activities in °C-ute, while receiving treatment and the rest of °C-ute had to keep performing as a 6 member band, releasing two singles without her.

She stopped C-ute and H!P activities due to the bunion, and many fans agreed that this was the most probable truth when comparing pictures of her feet. On July 9, after a 4 months absence, Arihara decided to resign from °C-ute and Hello! Project because she no longer wanted to be part of the idol world, and returned to the life of a normal girl.

However, other sources have claimed that the bunion was not the only reason why Arihara left Hello! Project, they claim her graduation was also the result of a scandal which came to light almost a year earlier involving her on a date with a Johnny's Entertainment member, Hashimoto Ryosuke.


Arihara made a return to the public eye in early 2010, when Umeda Erika revealed on her blog that they were still in touch with each other. In May, Arihara opened her official blog. In June, it was revealed that she was a talent signed to BLUE ROSE with her stage name simply becoming Kanna.


Arihara performed in a movie titled “Joshikousei Tokumu Sousakan Nagi & Saya". It was released July 22.


From January 6 to January 11, Arihara will perform in Quantum Dolls as "Asamiya Mayumi" alongside fellow former Hello! Project member Sudo Maasa.[1]
