A thread for Miki Nonaka, one of the brand new 12th generation Morning Musume members!

Miki is the first person to join Morning Musume who is fluent in English! She's gonna have a good laugh with all the shirts... :lol:

Quote from: http://www.tokyohive.com/article/2014/09/morning-musume-14-introduces-4-new-members
Nonaka can speak English fluently as she used to live in Alabama and Illinois because of her father's business. When she introduced herself in English, Michishige was amazed and said, "You are great, but all I understood was 'Morning Musume' and 'Thank you'!"

Now for a time warp:

People - originally ItsudemoAibon (post #1 (http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?/topic/24606-nonaka-miki-%E9%87%8E%E4%B8%AD%E7%BE%8E%E5%B8%8C/page-5#entry1806447)) & gx240 (post #2 (http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?/topic/24606-nonaka-miki-%E9%87%8E%E4%B8%AD%E7%BE%8E%E5%B8%8C/page-6#entry1806546)) at H!O, I've been informed - have been digging up some info from Miki's days in the US, where she lived for eight years.

The above pics are from 2008 from this Dance School Mixbook (http://www.mixbook.com/photo-books/events/applause-company-dance-4372367). Posing with her mom, with braces, hehe... and as you can see, the prominent solo dimple is there. :D

There's also records of her participating in gymnastics (http://www.timesdaily.com/archives/article_91ddd133-f160-55cf-972b-983e62b6f56c.html) (floor) competition, as well as art and writing (http://www.timesdaily.com/archives/article_d799826e-1619-5166-aaa6-fe6f9d80364d.html) contests.

So I'm eager to see her performance skills. Probably obvious that she's my fave so far, even before I read about all this background stuff. :P

Yeah hearing about her past, it'll be interesting to see her dancing, and since her talking voice sounds pretty pleasant I might be curious to hear her singing, as well. TO BE CONTINUED

With so many abilities, she might play a great counterpart to Maachan. If she has a steady, level-headed personality that duo would be the bomb :D

Finally some audition footage of Miki in action (Segment starts at 26:17). Let's analyze:




Singing

(https://31.media.tumblr.com/1d90f9d5c1e1b515b4fca5acbb3f575a/tumblr_ndi14xcD331rmkveto4_250.gif) (https://31.media.tumblr.com/aaac984bebd80ca423d87c9aedb9616e/tumblr_ndi14xcD331rmkveto3_250.gif)

Miki seems like a capable singer. She didn't blow me away or anything, but she's not too bad. Her voice is very... cutesy. While that's not really
my thing in general, she didn't grate my nerves at all. Next week we'll probably hear some studio singing, which should be interesting.




Dancing

(https://31.media.tumblr.com/ebbc11b574a7b768e8eee810eea32fca/tumblr_ndhv4oKM2b1rmkveto1_250.gif) (https://33.media.tumblr.com/4edf8cc48dde0dfdc716106262e11fcf/tumblr_ndhv4oKM2b1rmkveto4_250.gif)

I dug the brief ballet moment. My all-time fave dancer in H!P is Ai Takahashi largely because of the grace and fluidity she had in her moves... and
ballet played a big part in that, I'm sure. So it can't hurt in Miki's case either. I think it's obvious she's done quite a bit of everything. Based on this
footage I wouldn't put her near Riho's level for example, but she obviously can dance. Stoked to see more.




Superpowers

(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip34303.gif)

Well, she's obviously done gymnastics.                                                        endless ver. (http://gfycat.com/AliveYellowishBlowfish)




Cuteness

(https://38.media.tumblr.com/8ee915b0d0b5fe4ef6e141724c48d83e/tumblr_ndi14xcD331rmkveto1_250.gif)

Highly subjective, but like my post #, I'd say it's OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAND!



--

Oh and how precious was her English message at 30:51? "I love Morning Musume very much." That's always a good start. :heart:

<@Stryfe> it's like magic, I can suddenly understand what they say!

12月31日配信休止のお知らせ(矢島・野中) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBTGl4Ukd4U#ws)

Interesting how her accent keeps fading back and forth between American and Japanese. After 5 years of being back in Japan it makes sense that she might be a bit out of practice, but somehow I can imagine her English skills improving again now that she's in the group, because you just know management's gonna keep pushing her into it. XD

Yes, she's my instant initial favorite out of the new girls, primarily because of the American connection. :P But hey, her crooked smile is cute, and she also has a good performance background and decent singing, so I'm looking forward to seeing her on stage and in music videos.

She also looks pretty good in green...although we already have enough green members in the group.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip34673.jpg)

More fun facts: she's left-handed (third member after Fukuchan and Maachan), and she also has an unofficial nickname of "Chelsea" or "Chel", coined by Sakura due to Miki's favorite candy being Chelsea (http://whiterabbitexpress.com/meiji-chelsea-japanese-retro-candy/).

Nonaka Miki Interview

http://logirl.favclip.com/article/detail/318 (http://logirl.favclip.com/article/detail/318)


It would’ve been better to have a bigger reaction

What was it like when you found out you passed the audition, from the video message?

More so that being happy, I was so surprised my mind just went blank. The staff said, “Even if you didn’t make it they’ll tell you by video message”. So when it said that I made it, I couldn’t quite sort it out in my mind, and I was just there, stupefied. After the fact, I realized that I should’ve exaggerated my reaction a little bit.


How did you parents react?

They were really happy. It was my mother that recommended I take up dance lessons, so they really support me.


What about your friends?

I kept even going to the auditions a secret from them, so it was a huge surprise. “I know you like Morning Musume, but you actually went to audition for them?”



Morning Musume, or bust

How did you get into Morning Musume?

When I was young I lived in America for 8 years, but when I came back to Japan for a short time, I got into Minimoni, and from there into Morning Musume. There’s a bunch of videos where I do dance copies, and young me went “This has been Morning Musume!”


What made you decide to try for the audition?

At that point I was depressed, to the point that it was beginning to affect my physical condition. One day, I caught the music video Morning Musume ‘14’s Egao no Kimi wa Taiyou Sa. The dance was really cool, and it cheered me up so much, to the point where I thought “I’m gonna be Morning Musume. It has to be them”. At this time it was just at the point where they were recruiting new members, too. Just like in the lyrics (of Egao), “Do what only the you of today can!”, I thought “the time is now!”. Of course when I told my mum she said “you’re preparing for your entrance exams, aren’t you?”…

But I showed her the video, and explained. After that, my parents understood perfectly, and have been supporting me ever since.



Chell? Nonaka-chan? Miki-chan?

It’s been about 3 months since you entered, hasn’t it?

I’ve been slow to learn the dances, so I’ve been trying my best, believing that I’m going to put in many times more effort than the rest. Even at home, I’m watching a lot of lesson videos, confirming, and practising them.


Your senior, Oda Sakura, calls you Chell, does she not?

Yes. I like the candy ‘CHELSEA’, so the name came from there. But the other senior girls call me Nonaka-chan, and Oda-san has come to stop calling me Chell..it’s gotten a little lonely.


When it comes to calls/shouts, what would you like people to call you?

In Ogata Haruna’s case, they call her “Ogata” instead of “Haruna”, because Iikubo Haruna is a member. The problem is that “Ogata” and “Nonaka” kind of sound the same, don’t they. But I’ve never been called Miki-chan before..And if they call me Chelsea they won’t remember my real name, so I’m worried about that too.. It’s difficult. I’ll leave it to the fans.



Big dreams : World Tour

Amongst the new members of Hello! Project, who do you feel is your rival?

The person who was with me in the last training camp in the audition, Ogata Haruna, and the two girls from Country Girls, Oseki Mai and Shimamura Uta, these 3 for sure. We had the same starting point, so I don’t want to lose to them, and when I see them working hard I’m motivated to do the same.


What kind of persona are you, in the 12th generation members?

On first impressions, a lot of people say I’m lady-like, but it seems like amongst the 12th gen girls it’s been revealed that I’m not like that. Of course I’m more than happy to have that image stay with me.. I try to be diligent when I work, so I’m the type that doesn’t lose focus.


What kind of personality do you want to put out, within the group?

Of course, I would like to leverage on my English skills. I lived in America for 8 years, and when it comes to English I don’t think I’m losing to any of the others. However, if I don’t speak English, I’ll forget it. To avoid that, I’ve been continuing my studies, even now.


There’s a lot of fans overseas too, huh

I want people from more countries to know us, so I would like to perform in other countries too. As long as I can speak English, I think we’ll be able to communicate with a lot of fans around the world, so I would like to use my skills.


What are your aims as a member of Morning Musume?

I want to go on a World Tour. It’s a big dream, and I don’t know if we can even achieve it, but I’ll work hard to make it happen!

EDIT:
To expand on what I said before,

here's a girl who's such a new member she hasn't even released a single with Momusu yet, and she's already on a tv show with Kanjani8 members as hosts (Johnny's - super popular by default) and she's speaking with some confidence while also smiling cutely 'n being adorable, not to mention playing the piano with confidence... Forget the fact that she can sing and dance (and speak English), this girl seems to have quite a few aces down her sleeve :lol:

She did fairly well as far as mistakes go, but of course she couldn't rival the professional. His playing was smoother and more relaxed and he hit the expression better.
But kudos to her tempo in the first return to the main theme, she was spot on.

Also from that same issue, at her normal size with some books:

Looks like this is as small as Miki's willing to go: sometime recently she watched the Ant-Man movie, and while she enjoyed it she also says the thought of being ant-sized kinda scares her:
http://ameblo.jp/mm-12ki/entry-12077121333.html
I guess she missed the part about Pym particles giving relative super strength to anyone who shrinks using them. :lol:

Big or small, her buddies will always have her back:

She suffered a fractured ankle injury and will need a month to heal, and will miss out on some events.

I was really looking forward to seeing her on stage in Houston, now there's a chance she might not even be there...although no mention of it in the listed events she'll be missing.

Get well soon, Chel!

Morning Musume.'16 member Nonaka Miki cancels event appearances due to fractured foot
February 11, 2016

It's been reported that Morning Musume.'16 member Nonaka Miki has fractured her left foot. As such, she will require four weeks of rest and has canceled her appearances in concerts and events scheduled in February.

On February 9, Nonaka fell down and injured her left foot. The doctor found that the fifth metatarsal bone was fractured along with damage to the calcaneocuboid ligament.

The following appearances by Nonaka have been canceled: "Hello! Project 2016 WINTER ~DANCING! SINGING! EXCITING!~" on February 11 at Hiroshima Bunka Gakuen HBG Hall and release events for the group's single "Tsumetai Kaze to Kataomoi / ENDLESS SKY / One and Only" on February 13 at Nagoya Congress Center and February 14 at Zepp Tokyo.

After my autographs experience in Houston, I've come to realize more than ever how important this girl is to the group.

I'm kind of a terrible Zukki fan; already I've met her twice with the handshakes in NY and this autograph session in Houston, and yet I still choked up and couldn't properly talk to her, or give her the gift I made for her this time. And it was the same with most of the other members; the idol aura combined with the language barrier (as well as my own fatigue) kind of overcame my ability to say what I wanted to say or could've said to them.

But once I got to Miki, knowing that I can talk to her in English, suddenly I'm verbose, telling her how her injury scared me and that I'm so glad she still managed to show up for this! XD Seriously, getting to each girl I was like:
Fukuchan & Eripon = omg  :sweatdrop:
Zukki = OMG OMG OMG :panic:
10th gen, Sakura, rest of 12th gen = omg  :sweatdrop:
Miki = 'sup, how's your injury doing? 8)

I should've followed up with another San Francisco endorsement for her (Rayle was in line before me, telling her to come visit us), but the important thing is how much breaking down the language barrier can make the idol fan experience that much more engaging. (shit, just look how much more popular Aika has become)

Tsunku made a great choice in his final days as producer.

MIKI NONAKA, YOU DA REAL MVP!

Tsunku insisted on nicknaming her "Mikitty"...
Groupmate Sakura Oda dubbed her "Chel"...
Some fans took a liking to "Mikicha" and "Nonak"...
Twitter meme enthusiasts turned to "Miki Alabama"...

But with this performance, in which she inherits the English-speaking role of a long-forgotten legend, I propose a new alias...MIKI TODD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIEDeEtxxN0

(or perhaps Mini Miki? She's the shortest in 12th gen and has teased being even smaller before (http://picroda.jphip.com/hp/jphip35419.jpg) :P)

Miki's coming back to the US! :w00t:
http://www.helloproject.com/news/8098/

Well, not in a performance capacity, but still work-related and an interesting opportunity for her: she's been selected to be Rakuten TV's NBA ambassador!

I have no idea how much she pays attention to American basketball, but if she turns out to be fairly knowledgeable it's gonna make me love her even moreso than I already do! :lol:

On an interesting note, we all know Rakuten is linked to H!P via the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles baseball team, for which H!P made cheer songs in the past, but this season the NBA is experimenting with corporate sponsors on each team's jerseys, and my local team, the Golden State Warriors, happened to be sponsored by Rakuten now! Perhaps Miki could make a song for the Dubs too and keep the H!P/Rakuten sports connection going? :P At the very least, I hope she gets to meet Klay Thompson, as I consider her the Klay Thompson of Morning Musume (https://twitter.com/JTriumf/status/885780929288880128) (both of them are extremely talented and have that "I don't quite know what's going on but I'm just happy to be here and do my best" vibe).
