|Things that tempt me are
things to do with appearance.
For example: clothes, shoes, mirrors, nails.
Also, bed covers and toilet paper covers have to do with appearance too.
After all, outer appearances call out to me! (giggles)
Putting that aside, for my fifth single's coupling
song, I challenged songwriting for the first time.
The next day, I planned on working on it during my

|I will become 20 this
When I was in elementary school, I looked forward to being 20...
And I remember thinking, "I want to become an adult soon!"
Even if I don't say anything, it will happen to me
But recently -- very recently -- I've been

The one and only Kaori in the world.
I'm Kaori, who likes long hair.
I'm Kaori, who doesn't have courage to cut her hair short.
After all, your hair is like an ally who has been with you for a long time.
To part with it would be too sad, so I couldn't do it.
So to that hair, I'll make it happy everyday.
Long hair -- Kaori's treasure.
To find your own happiness, you must obtain it on

|To me, Kei Yasuda, the
title of my first solo song is

Miscalculations happen often.

|Yaguchi has finally turned
I'm finally an adult!
It's about time that I'm in the older sister team for Morning Musume,
but I'm so small and talk a lot
so there seems to be the misconception that I'm very childish.
But actually, I'm really thinking about a lot of things
and putting a lot of effort to change myself all the time.
I often hear, "You never get nervous, do you,
Now, that kind of 18-year old Yaguchi's mission

In terms of outward appearance, I'm thinking about
growing out my hair
I guess because I say things like that I seem childish...
|message from maki|
|This is Maki Gotou!
I've always loved being active, so I got great marks in gym class at school.
Horizontal bars, vaulting horse, baseball, and soccer -- I did those frequently at school.
Even in the school clubs, my black shoes would turn brown
from all the ball playing I was doing, so I did quite a bit of kicking.
That kind of Gotou is in Morning Musume right now.
But right now, Gotou is enjoying other kinds of
When you play soccer or baseball,
So one day, I'd like to become really good at it
But since there's 10 of us,
So everyone, I leave that kind of 21st century up to you!
|message from rika|
|I'm told by people around
me very often
that I'm a typical "female type" character!
When I think about why they say that,
it's probably because my pinky goes up when I grab things,
or I put an "o" at the beginning of the words I say.
For example, oyoufuku [clothes] or okoucha [tea].
When I think about it, I really do talk like that.
And when you talk about female type characters,
My first goal of the 21st century is
This is the kind of person that I am,
This was Rika Ishikawa.
|message from hitomi|
|How did I, Hitomi
Yoshizawa, get my name?
Actually, my name was originally supposed to be "Sayaka,"
but when I was born, my eyes were very big,
so my dad said, "There's no other name but Hitomi [eyes]!"
So that's how I became Hitomi.
But if I had become Sayaka, I might have not passed the audition
and not be a member of Morning Musume.
I have had many transformations since I joined
Morning Musume one year ago,
And there's also one thing I've come to understand
Well, this is who I am,
|message from ai|
|My name is Ai Kago.
How did I get the name "Ai"?
It is because it was hoped that I would be loved by all, and receive lots of affection.
I love this name "Ai" that my dad and mom made for me.
And for Kago, ai ["love"] makes me think of the
love from my fans,
And for Kago, "love" means holding hands
forever with the one you love
And Kago's mission for the 21st century is
Everyone, please expect the best!

Why did I get the name "Nozomi"?
