It's no surprise she got in. Super cute.. I think she'll go far and will become one of the top members eventually.

I went to Ruka-chan's first DVD event yesterday and it was an entirely new experience. There were about 200 people at the event although not all of them are Ruka-chan's fans. It was my first DVD event so I didn't know what to expect.

First, there was a 15 minute talk segment between Ruka-chan and the host(I forgot her name) with surprise appearance by Maipuru and Yurippe. It was amusing that Maipuru got the best reception of the day from the fans and Yurippe was continuously teased by the fans. After the talk segment, there was a photo session and everyone gets 1 minute to take her picture. Then, Ruka-chan played rock-paper-scissors with the fans and 5 winners were given a signed T-shirt(just a plain white t-shirt, I wish it was the numbering shirt though). After that, the event continued with a handshake event where you get to talk to her for about 10 seconds and you are given signed covers of her DVD depending on how many copies did you buy(I bought 2 for the chekki session).

Next come the lucky draw. 10 lucky winners was drawn and the prize is a signed photo of Ruka-chan. Luckily my numbers were drawn and I got something I didn't expect for once. The event finished with a chekki session and I was suprised how small the size of the chekki was, smaller than a toreka.

This was a fun experience and I'm looking forward to the next Idoling!!! member DVD event.

She looks "heavy" when running, but it doesn't effect her movement when dancing. How come?  :?
Title: Re: #22: The Kurata "Ruu-chan" Ruka Thread
Post by: AEUGNewtype on January 19, 2013, 03:05:27 AM
Cause she's so short, lol. And running puts a lot more force on your feet and centralizes the weight of your whole body onto one specific spot, where dancing is a more fluid motion. Just my theory

Soukana...

Nomoto is shorter than Ruka, but she was the fastest runner in Idoling!!!
Well, Ruka admitted that she is heavier than Nomoto.

Post by: cicily on January 19, 2013, 05:43:23 PM
Speaking from my experience before as a trained dancer.

Putting on weight does impact your dancing ability, just like IMO it did for Ruka as well. While she may still hit (or pop) just as hard as before when she was slimmer, her extensions are not as clean and her lines are not as sharp anymore. Plus the weight will affect her stamina, which means timing may be effected since you are moving around with more weight now.

Check out her dance solo during the 4th gen auditions - still the best of all of her dance performances to date, IMO.

Adorable, funny ( sometimes when she is trying to be funny , sometimes when she is not), strikingly beautiful- hope that she had a great day with her family and friends.

May the coming year bring this lovely girl much joy and happiness! Much thanks and appreciation to Ruka chan for her hard work and making being a Ruka fan so much fun!!

However, given her age and content I wouldn't feel comfortable hanging it over my bed... However:

At Shosen Book Tower, they always have several boxes left with leftover signed calendars (usually even cheaper than the regular price).
That's where I always buy mine when I'm there during the New Year holidays.
If you really want one, I could get you one...
