Solo SongsEdit







  • She believes she is the true "mirai shoujo", because of her personality, which she is often told is like that of someone from outer space.[6]
  • She believes she won't lose to any other Hello Pro Kenshuusei member at "heart dimples" and short bangs.
  • She collects Ishida Ayumi goods.
  • She wants to be an idol that everyone knows.
  • In the March 2014 issue of Gekkan Entame, she was ranked 3rd with Ogawa Rena as the "most airheaded" in Hello Pro Kenshuusei.[7]
  • Her rivals in Hello Pro Kenshuusei are her generation-mates, they joined at the same time but there are girls in the generation better at singing and dancing than she is, so she wants to be able to catch up to them. She wants to become someone who leaves an impression with people even when she's performing with all of her generation-mates.
  • Her dream was to have a major debut, she wanted to continue her activities in Hello Pro Kenshuusei and work on her expressions so that her smile can reach everyone.
  • Mentioned that one of her dreams was to have a page on Wikipedia.
  • For her, the best thing about Hello Pro Kenshuusei is having fans cheer for her at the Nama Tamago Shows.
  • For her, the hardest thing about Hello Pro Kenshuusei is remembering the dances.
  • She says the toughest thing about being a Kenshuusei is coming to rehearsals, and greeting and bowing to everyone and then not being able to do any of the performances and having people who have worked harder and are better than her have to stop what they're doing to help her because she's so far behind.
  • She tried during her first Kenshuusei performance to be aware of her facial expressions, since she's prone to making gloomy facial expressions, but seeing the crowd get excited during their song made her feel happy more naturally.
  • Tsunku's comments: "Your dancing is still half-hearted, I want to focus on the rhythm. The movements overall are very subtle, and so it's good to be able to show those subtle movements visibly, so I want you to go on to working on those subtle gestures. When your bangs are longer you look gloomy, so it might be better to keep them cut."
  • Sayashi Riho, Suzuki Kanon, Ogata Haruna, Nonaka Miki and Yamaki Risa said that they are curious about Kisora.
  • According to an interview with JUNON magazine released in July 2014, Niinuma hoped on getting a blue member color.
  • Her future goal is appear on music TV shows.
