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]

On June 20, Ogata was announced as the main MC for a new sports program Hello! Athlete Megami that would begin airing July 2 on EX Sports and the SKY PerfecTV! Premium Service.[9][10] The show focuses on young female athletes who are expected to do well in the future and discusses not just their career, but also their school life and private life.

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.[11] She owns a pet dog named Alf.[12]

Prior to joining Hello! Project, Ogata attended Doushisha Kouri Middle/High School (同志社香里中学校・高等学校),[13] a private middle and high school in Neyagawa, Osaka. When Ogata joined Morning Musume '14 in September 2014, she was a 1st year high school student.[2] She graduated from high school on March 8, 2017.[14]

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.[19]
