  • Hoshibe most likely represents himself with a picture of a daruma doll as a reference to ANGERME's "Nana Korobi Ya Oki", one of the first songs he wrote. Daruma are associated with the proverb that the song is named after, "nana korobi ya oki" (七転び八起き) meaning "fall seven times, get up eight", because their round shape and weighted bottoms allow them to return to an upright position when knocked over.
