Probably the most teased member out of the second generation for various reasons, such as her mood swings, resemblance to Torii Miyuki and for not acting nor looking her age. Is often confronted by the other members because of her tendency to turn down offers to hang out, as well as her being secretive outside of Idoling!!!.

Among the group members Yokoyama (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=20479.0) would be her senior since they share the same agency. Her dad is currently active in a metal band called GROUND ZERO as a guitarist.

it is probably not wrong to say she is one of the more talented 2nd generation member. IMO she has the best vocal among the 2nd gen, she does tap and aerobics. I think her seriousness is only second to Maria  XD

During the Mira graduation special episode, she said that she's leaving her position to Umeko. Can she really fill in that spot? Somehow Umeko feels like a hybrid of Saya-nee and Mira but yet she doesn't jump into talks as good as the graduated members. In fact other than Amimi the 2nd generation basically doesn't jump into talks as much don't they?

Don't worry Umeko, everyone loves you~

The "what are you proud of" segment in the natsu yasumi 2009 DVD is officially gold  :lol:
Umeko brags about her father!  XD :rockon: The MCs and other girls' reaction to it was just totally amusing  :lol:
Here's Ground Zero back in the 80's  :rockon:

Oh man, if they could bring her father with his band to perform in the Idoling!!! TV show, it'll be amazing  XD
yeah, i'm quite a metal head myself  :P

Yeah, it'll be great to have Ground Zero to appear in Idoling!!! for any segment.

I watched another episode of Idoling (Idoling!!! - 20091005 #557) and now I like this girl :lol: I liked her wink and some angry faces. Too bad the episode was otherwise kinda bad for any newbie bonding :O

welcome aboard the #12 boat Shirenu~  :twothumbs

Umeko's facial expression is just golden all the time even when she is not at the centre of the camera  XD  In the later machigai sagashi segment when she was chosen again "eh!? But I didn't even wink this time.."  :rofl:

btw what do you mean by bad for any newbie bonding?

btw what do you mean by bad for any newbie bonding?
I mean that the guests were more in focus than the girls themselves, and so it was very difficult for any of the girls to really stand out. I don't think all of them even got a chance to talk o-o So for me as a newbie, it was a bad ep for learning more about the girls :P

Umeko VS Puyo Puyo Producer

Honestly I thought that the game is easy and went ahead with it in my DS, but its really harder than I expected. This girl is playing reaaaaaly well  :shocked

edit: a side note, with la la la no song being metal and all, would it ever be possible to have Ground Zero on Idoling!!!'s live/show XD

I kind of love this girl now :lol: I decided to choose one girl to sort of focus on because it would make it way easier to decide which episodes to watch etc. And I decided on Umeko :D

The #630 episode is amazing, where she has to wear the green + white skintight overalls... At first it was hilarious but then suddenly it turned very hot >_>;; hahaha

She never got to experience the coming-of-age ceremony last year. It's a huge thing especially for girls.
Title: Re: #12: The Kawamura "Umeko" Yui Thread
Post by: 123SillyBlast on January 12, 2011, 10:40:19 PM
So she had it this year instead of last year? Why? And she was so emotional because this ceremony is such a big deal for girls? Was the ceremony directly before the recording?

EDIT: \/ I see. Thanks.
Title: Re: #12: The Kawamura "Umeko" Yui Thread
Post by: Ayabie on January 12, 2011, 11:22:09 PM
The ceremony is only for 20-year-old adults so it's a one time thing. She's probably been bummed about it since last year when she was unable to go home and celebrate it, so seeing Yazawa, Fonchi and Amimi brought it all back I guess.

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention the biggest reason why it's important to girls is because of the outfits.

First encounter with Yui: Idoling!!! 467

Moment(s) that made me laugh: Too many to count, personal favorite would be her futarikiring. That was too whacked out.
Moment(s) that surprised me: When she cried because of the curry. When she reveal about her father.
Favorite solo line in a song: Stargirl Starboy
Something I would say to her at a handshake event: Umeko~ aren't you a pretty young girl!

Just watched #705 not really listening carefully to the talking (which is bad since it was a talky episode!) and Yui looked super devastated!  Didn't help that she had to sit behind Fonchi, Erika and Ami in their kimono.  I didn't think Shizuoka was so far from Tokyo that she couldn't have gone back home but I guess there were extenuating circumstances where she couldn't.  Just thought that since Ami's from Hokkaido and all.

At least she cheered up a little when Ami got her ranking but then the guest said something about everyone above her being okay which made her a bit panicky.  At least she didn't get a worst 5 ranking otherwise she would have been completely destroyed.

At least it made me want to look for her more after seeing that.  Considering how cryptic Fonchi has been lately as well, I hope there is not a mass graduation of 1st-2nd gen members anytime soon!

First encounter with Yui: 2nd gen. spoilers when they were announced.
My favorite thing(s) about Yui: She's the jack-of-all-trades of the group.
A memorable performance: I remember seeing her tapdancing at the 3rd live. It was more surprising than memorable to be frank. :lol:
Moment(s) that made me laugh: Youkai Character contest.
Moment(s) that surprised me: Beats me why she wore a Swedish polo shirt to the audition...
Favorite solo line in a song: ベタな失恋~渋谷に降る雪~
Something I would say to her at a handshake event: Fun fact: Umeko was the first member I shook hands with!

She will not be getting a 2012 calendar.

Only 9/20 girls get a calendar this year, and who gets one seems a bit arbitrary. Most 'top members' get one, but not everybody who got one last year gets one now. I expected to see a Fonchi, Kikuchi and Sakai one as well, but no dice.  :oops:

umeko just revealed that she is appearing in a drama. She has been doing theaters here and there and its about time that she gets her own role somewhere. For someone in early 20s, she's getting an OL role  :lol: Looking forward to this new show

Did not see the whole show, but this sequence is pretty funny. Ramu Tamagawa is succesful in going full around on the bar, which earns her some praise from the group. Masuno is saying "Wow that's great" and then he slips in "She's like a child of MomoKuro (Momoiro Clover)"

Everyone gets riled up, and Umeko calls him on that...'you really like them don't you, you like their *center, don't you?'

*Kanako Momota, of Momoiro Clover, is a trained tumbler and gymnast, and always does front and back flips on variety shows

Masuno gets out of trouble by making fun of Umeko's skills.........

Umeko is probably the most hardworking Idoling!!! for this year's Tokyo Idol Festival, together with Amimi.

She finished only at midnight on Saturday, and her morning solo live on Sunday started at SIX O' CLOCK. During the post-event interviews, they said she slept over at the Wangan Studio on Saturday night and didn't bother to go back home. LOL.

so the japanese wota are planning for Umeko's birthday and they are collecting messages from her fans to be given to her on her birthday soon. So if anyone would like to join in and send her a message drop me a PM. The last day to send your messages is on the 29th July.

Update 01:
The card that they will send consist of 3 sections which I will need your response

A) Birthday message (in not more than 200 characters if English and not more than 100 characters if Japanese)

B) Common question - What is your favorite Idoling!!! song.

C) Selectable question (choose one)

「24歳のうめ子に期待する事は?」
-What do you hope to see from our newly turned 24 years old Umeko from now on?

・「うめ子の好きなところは?」
-What do you like about Umeko

・「うめ子に歌って欲しい曲は?」(アイドリング!!!の曲以外でOKです。)
Songs that you'd like to hear her sing, even non-idoling song is fine.

Name, it is ok to write them in English, but if you can include the katakana as well it would be really helpful.

Your country and city.

They are also collecting drawings or pictures of fans wishing for her birthday as well. If you can draw, or if you want to take pictures of your country or yourself holding cards or whatever, it is fine as well.

Last day for the message submission is 29th July and for the pictures/drawings 8th August.

If possible please do not spread the word through twitter or publicly share the picture/drawing you made for her until her birthday as well.
