Ogata's Autograph
I’m still told that I’m inexperienced but, while I’m leaving my fresh teen years, I think it would be nice to show off a little bit of sexiness. My fair skin is a charm point, so I’d like to challenge more gravure, I want to put out a photobook![1]

Personal LifeEdit

Ogata's father is a normal salaryman.[3] Her mother is around age 50 (as of March 2015).[3] Both of her parents are from Miyaki.[3] Ogata is an only child.[13] She owns a pet dog named Alf.[14]

Prior to joining Hello! Project, Ogata attended Doushisha Kouri Junior and High School (同志社香里中学校・高等学校),[15] a private school in Neyagawa, Osaka. When Ogata joined Morning Musume in September 2014, she was a first year high school student.[2] She graduated from high school on March 8, 2017.[16]

Ogata began to figure skate at the age of 5 and continued skating until age 14. During those years, her mother drove a hour to the ice rink nearly on a daily basis everyday for practice.[3] The ice rink she practiced is the same one Olympic bronze medalist Takahashi Daisuke and was in the same group as rising star Miyahara Satoko.

The following list are notable friendships Ogata Haruna has acquired:

Ogata's given name, Haruna, means "spring" (春; haru) combined with "water" (水; na). Her parents chose the name so she would grow up pure like the water melted from winter snow in the spring and into a kind girl like the arrival of the warm spring after a harsh winter.[21]

  • Her 12th generation audition number was #112.
  • She thinks that in a previous life she was a polar bear.
  • If God could grant her one thing, she would wish to see how she will be 10 years from now.
  • She would bring her cellphone to a deserted island.
  • She is the first member of Morning Musume to be from Osaka prefecture.
    • She is the only 12th generation member who is not from the Chubu region. Nonaka Miki is from Shizuoka, Makino Maria is from Aichi, Haga Akane is from Nagano, which all three prefectures are in the Chubu region.
  • She is older than Oda Sakura making her one of the five people being older than a generation above them, the others being Ishikawa Rika, Fujimoto Miki, Junjun and Iikubo Haruna.
  • Before she goes to sleep, she devours ice. She falls asleep while crunching it.[13]
  • She became a fan of Morning Musume after her friends showed her "Maji Desu ka Ska!".[13]
  • She always procrastinates on her summer homework, doing all of them the last two days of summer break.[13]
  • She has the same given name as Morning Musume 10th generation member Iikubo Haruna, although they do not share the same character for "na". For this reason, their pairing name is "W Haruna" (Wはるな; read as Double Haruna).[23]
  • When the 12th gen members were making pancakes she used all of the whipped cream on her pancake.
  • She sometimes wears glasses.
  • She once took 100 selfies of herself doing weird faces on Nonaka Miki's phone.
  • Admitted she is a person who gets bored easily.
  • The first time she ever saw a 3D movie was with Iikubo Haruna on January 8, 2015, when they went to watch Big Hero 6.
  • Her dad also ice skated.
  • When she was in elementary school, she became the "president" of her class origami "company" even though she was not really good at it.
  • She is afraid of taking a bath alone so she prefers to shower when at a hotel.
  • She wants to go on an ice skating date with Sayashi Riho.
  • Suzuki Kanon said that Ogata gives off the same kind of vibe as her. She found this out by doing a bit of net patrolling.
  • She shares the same nickname as The World Standard (Wa-suta for short) member Sakamoto Hazuki. Both have greeted each other's birthdays through blogs; Ogata greeted Sakamoto on September 10, 2016,[29] and Sakamoto greeted Ogata on February 15, 2017.[30] Ogata made an indirect reference to Sakamoto by writing: "Same nickname, same school grade, also from Kansai region."
    • On October 11, 2017, she went to a Wa-suta cafe with Morito Chisaki and she purchased the drink with Sakamoto's name.[31] Sakamoto thanked Ogata on Twitter.[32]
  • If she could be reborn as someone else, she would be Makino Maria because she has a lot of respect for her even as generation-mates. Also, Makino has loved and followed baseball for a long time, and Ogata, who is fickle person and can't stay addicted to one thing for many years, wonders what it must feel like.[28]
  • She thinks she is the Hello! Project member who changes over the quickest. For example, if something shocking such as a frustrating defeat happened, people would use that experience to work harder, but Ogata is the type to immediately forget about it.[28]
  • If she did not become an idol, she would like to work at a school or as a cram school teacher, and her subject would be mathematics.[28]
  • Ogata, Iikubo Haruna, and Kudo Haruka gave themselves the unit name "Triple A" (spelled トリプルエー or AAA) as a joke about their breast sizes.[33][34]
