  • She thinks that she won't lose to any other member in the speed of her skipping.
  • Her dreams were to join Morning Musume, or a new unit, and to become an idol who is good at expressions.
  • She wanted to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei because she thought she could study more.
  • For her, the best thing about joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei was gradually becoming friends with the seniors that she admires and being able to dance for MV filming.
  • For her, the hardest thing about joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei was losing parts of the new-member dance at the Nama Tamago Show.
  • She was the most inexperienced and roughest out of the 12th generation finalists, but spent all her free time during the training camp practicing and the teachers gave her a seal of approval with her tremendous growth throughout the 3 days.
  • She was the shortest member of Hello Pro Kenshuusei, as well as the shortest current member of Hello! Project. At 141cm, she has beaten Taguchi Natsumi's record of 145cm in height.
  • She was the youngest out of her Kenshuusei generation.
  • After her first Kenshuusei performance, she said that she had been so scared beforehand, but once she saw everyone's faces as she stepped foot on stage, she felt relaxed and happy. She thought the glowsticks were pretty and she wants to see that sight again.
  • She participated in the Morning Musume audition because she liked them. Her friends had been talking about how much they admired them, how cool they were with their singing and formation dances, and wanted to be in the group. From there she started to get into them and decided to audition.
  • According to an interview on JUNON Magazine released in July 2014, Funaki hoped on getting a deep pink member color.
