Early LifeEdit

Tanaka Reina was born on November 11, 1989 in Fukuoka, Japan.

2002Edit

Tanaka Reina auditioned for a spot in Morning Musume's 5th Generation in 2001 and passed, but had to leave the training camp when it was found out that she was underage. She attempted again in 2002 -- now old enough to audition -- for a position in the 6th Generation and passed along with other members Kamei Eri and Michishige Sayumi. Her audition song was Morning Musume's "Do it! Now." Once the 6th Generation joined, it made it the group's biggest formation up to that point, with 15 members in total.

2003Edit

In July, she provided the main vocals for the group's nineteenth single Shabondama, making her one of the few members of Morning Musume who was able to lead on her debut single.

Tanaka was chosen to become the leader of a new Hello! Project unit named Aa! alongside Hello! Project Kids members Suzuki Airi and Natsuyaki Miyabi. The group released their first and only single, FIRST KISS, in October.[1][2] The group later disbanded, but occasionally reunited to perform live, though Tanaka was no longer a member of the band.

2004Edit

Tanaka was featured in two solo versions of Memory Seishun no Hikari on a fan club release CD. She released her first album with Morning Musume, Ai no Dai 6kan in December.

During her first year in the group, Morning Musume was split into two groups: Morning Musume Otome Gumi and Morning Musume Sakura Gumi. Tanaka was put in Otome Gumi and released two singles with the group before they went on hiatus.

2005Edit

Tanaka was also one of the few members to be selected for the 2005 summer shuffle groups, as a member of Elegies. They contributed the song "Inshouha no Renoir You ni" to the summer shuffle CD that year.

2008Edit

On March 28, it was announced that Tanaka would be voice acting as Kirara, a main character in Sanrio's anime Onegai My Melody Kirara, the fourth My Melody series. The show premiered on April 6.[3]

In 2008, Tanaka became a member and a leader of Hello Project's new unit High-King, formed to promote their new musical, Cinderella the Musical. The group released one single (C\C (Cinderella\Complex)).

2010Edit

It was revealed that Tanaka would be voicing the main/title character of the new anime series, Kaito Reinya. The character, Reinya, had initially been modeled on Tanaka. The show began airing on January 9 and aired a total of 12 episodes.

Tanaka opened her first blog with the title, Tanaka Reina no Otsukareina.

In November, Tanaka, Michishige and Kamei were involved in a racism scandal, photos of the three stretching their eyes trying to "look like a Korean person," were posted to Tanaka's blog. All three later apologized.

2011Edit

Tanaka starred in a stage play titled Reborn ~Inochi no Audition~ along with Niigaki Risa, the 9th Generation members, and Kudo Haruka.

Tanaka and Michishige Sayumi hosted a premium Christmas dinner show. The date was December 23, and the show was hosted at the Prince Hotels.

2012Edit

On April 18, it was announced that Tanaka and Morning Musume's 9th and 10th Generation members would star in a new stage play titled Stacy's Shoujo Saisatsu Kageki. The musical ran from June 6th through the 12th.

It was announced Tanaka would be the center in a new band with new vocalists and a guitarists. The audition for the new vocalists and a guitarists began on June 17 and continued for 4 consecutive weekends.

On November 18, the winners of Tanaka's band member audition were revealed to be Uozumi Yuki, Miyazawa Marin, and Okada Marina. On the same day, it was announced that Tanaka Reina would be graduating from Morning Musume and Hello! Project. Tsunku and Tanaka made an announcement of her graduation in order to focus on her new band and to present new opportunities for Tanaka.

Comment by Tanaka Reina
Thank you for always giving me your support.

I, Tanaka Reina, will be graduating from Morning Musume with next year’s Spring tour!

Today, as I inform all the fans on stage, together with my 3 bandmates, I feel that for myself, I am beginning my journey to a new stage!

Morning Musume facing it’s 15 year anniversary, and I having joined as a 6th generation member, have reached my 10th year.

I feel like it’s a perfect turning point, as I start new activities with my band, and challenge myself with a full-time music career after graduation.

For my activities with Morning Musume and Hello!Project, I still have half a year left. With what’s left the Fall tour and the New Year’s Hello!Project concert, as well as the Spring tour, I will continue to sing in front of all the fans as Morning Musume’s Tanaka Reina so, please continue to give me your support!
