Kaga's Autograph
My goal for the year is 進 (progress). It's the 進 of progress (進歩), as I'll be starting new activities from 2017. I think that there'll be ever harder, tougher things waiting for me compared to what I've experienced before. So, as I think that I have to steadily advance (進む) step by step, that's why I chose to write that kanji.[1]

TriviaEdit

  • She practices kendo (martial art sword fighting).
  • She thinks she won't lose to any member in her vocal quality.
  • In the March 2014 issue of Gekkan Entame, she was ranked 2nd best at physical activity in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.[30]
  • She wanted to join Hello Pro Kenshuusei after failing the Morning Musume 11th Generation ~Suppin Utahime~ Audition because she didn't want to give up on her dream.
  • For her, the best thing about Hello Pro Kenshuusei was when she got a solo part in their original song, whereas the hardest thing about Hello Pro Kenshuusei was when she failed the Morning Musume 12th Generation ~Mirai Shoujo~ Audition.
  • She sang "Maji Bomber!!" for the Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2013 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~ event. After this performance, Tsunku told her that she needs to work on her confidence and expressions more and that he wants her to become "Lady Kaga".
  • She won runner-up for dancing at the Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2014 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~, and the public vote at Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2015 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~ after singing "Love take it all".
  • She wants to try singing "Kanashiki Heaven" by ℃-ute.
  • The Kenshuusei members had a surprise celebration for Kaga's 14th birthday during a lesson, as shown in her 2013 winter interview video uploaded on YouTube.[31]
  • Her first rival in Hello Pro Kenshuusei was Murota Mizuki because she considered her the most well-rounded overall at everything in the Kenshuusei, among the top at singing and dancing. After Murota made her debut, her new rival became Horie Kizuki.
  • She spent her time thinking of how she can stand out not just in Hello Pro Kenshuusei, but in Hello! Project as a whole.
  • Her dream was to join Morning Musume. She didn't think she could at her level, but she wanted to be able to pass the next audition by the time it came around. If she could get into Morning Musume, she wants to be the ace.
  • She also wanted to join a group like ℃-ute, where they focus on their singing and dancing. In an interview with Top Yell in July 2016, she said her future dream was to debut in Hello! Project and be someone who can sing, dance, and act.
  • Tsunku commented on Kaga as a Hello Pro Kenshuusei member in late 2013: "You've grown in both singing and dancing. Next will be your character. You can decide where you stand if you can make yourself improve more and more in your singing, dancing, and the fact that you're not super beautiful, as well as creating a character that other people get attached to. It should be a character that stands alone as 'Kaede Kaga!'"[32]
  • Besides Hello! Project, Kaga also listens to aiko, SPYAIR, and AAA. She especially likes The Super Ball and Walküre, who, including SPYAIR, she discovered from anime.[33]
  • If she could be reborn as someone else, she would be Niigaki Risa because she likes her somewhat husky voice.[25]
  • She believes she is the Hello! Project member who can not be beaten in extensiveness as an otaku. She likes anime, games, and manga and gathers news on them as a hobby.[25]
  • If she did not become an idol, she would have pursued her childhood dream of becoming a police officer. She had been told she has a strong sense of justice, like a police officer, around other kids. Since she was in a brass band in school, she also wanted to join the police brass band.[25]
  • Kyoukai no Kanata was the first anime series she watched. Before, Kaga was the type of kid who just played outside and did not watch anime at all. She became interested in her first year of middle school when her friends were talking excitedly about Kyoukai no Kanata and they recommended it to her. Even though she started in the middle of the show, she became addicted and rewatched the recordings about 10 times. After that she started looking for more series.[29]
  • Her favorite voice actress is Yuki Aoi for her role as Diane in Nanatsu no Taizai. She was so impressed that she started watching other anime Yuki was in.[29]
