–Hirose Ayaka, August 2016
Hirose Ayaka (広瀬彩海; Real Name 廣瀬彩海) is a member and leader of Kobushi Factory, a Hello Pro Kenshuusei unit under Hello! Project. She was first introduced as a member of Hello Pro Kenshuusei on November 29, 2014 at the November / December recital.
Prior to joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei, she was a member of NICE GIRL Project! Kenshuusei.
Hirose Ayaka was born on August 4, 1999 in Kanagawa, Japan.
On September 19, 2011, Hirose was introduced as a member of NICE GIRL Project! Kenshuusei during the "Trainees Collection Vol.2" live at Shibuya Yaneura.
In summer 2012, Hirose participated in the Morning Musume 11ki Member "Suppin Utahime" Audition, but failed to pass the third round.
On November 16, NICE GIRL Project!'s trainee program was abolished. Soon after, Hirose, alongside Hashimoto Nagisa, Horie Kizuki, Ogata Risa, Shimano Momoko and Inoue Rei, was given the opportunity to become a member of Hello Pro Kenshuusei, transferring to UP-FRONT PROMOTION and joining Hello! Project. She was formally introduced during the November / December recital concert on November 29 alongside the former NICE GIRL Project! trainees and 3 other girls.
On January 2, during the Hello! Project 2015 WINTER ~DANCE MODE!~ concert, it was announced that Hirose would be debuting in a new unit alongside Hamaura Ayano, Taguchi Natsumi, Ogawa Rena, Nomura Minami, Wada Sakurako, Fujii Rio and Inoue Rei.
On March 8, during Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2015 ~3gatsu no Nama Tamago Show!~, Hirose Ayaka was announced leader of Kobushi Factory.
On August 22, Hirose celebrated her 17th birthday. The special event called Kobushi Factory Hirose Ayaka Birthday Event 2016 featured two performances in Tokyo.
On August 15, Hirose will celebrate her 18th birthday at a special event called Kobushi Factory Hirose Ayaka Birthday Event 2017, featuring two performances in Tokyo.
When Hirose joined Hello Pro Kenshuusei, she was a first year high school student. As of April 2017, she is currently attending her last year of high school.
Hirose's given name, Ayaka, means "color" (彩; aya) combined with "sea" (海; ka). Her parents chose "Ayaka" because it was a popular name at the time, and "so she'll become a girl who can give color to even the sea!" was an afterthought.
The following list are notable friendships Hirose Ayaka has acquired:

- Her favorite artists are THE Possible, Canary Club and Amuro Namie.
- She is left handed.
- Her love of baseball comes from her grandfather, whom she would always watch baseball games on TV with when she was younger.
- The Yomiuri Giants is her favorite team, but Toritani Takashi from the Hanshin Tigers is her favorite player.
- She has a habit of buying books at every opportunity, so her room has become like a library. She especially likes mystery novels, particularly from female authors such as Minato Kanae and Miyabe Miyuki.
- She has a yorkshire terrier.
- At an event, she introduced herself as being the sexiest in the group. This came to her mind after wearing jeans one time and thinking to herself, "With this, there's no way that I'm not number one." She confesses though that she ranked seventh in a previous ranking, beating out only Taguchi Natsumi (who has a little sister character).
- She loves My Neighbor Totoro, and as a 4 year old child she had many of the lines memorized.
- She talks about her experience being a trainee for the now defunct Nice Girl Project, which was produced by Tsunku. Apparently, they would have street lives in Asakusa where they would perform on top of beer cases. However, sometimes only 1 or 2 people would come so some members would cry on stage. Regardless, she is really indebted to Tsunku for a lot of things.
- According to the Top Yell July 2016 interview, Hirose's role within the group is "Factory Manager for Sexiness".
- She shares her birth name with ANGERME member Wada Ayaka.
