[Nogizaka46’s 1st single “guru guru curtain” Short Ver.]
Rina Ikoma (Ikomachan), is a central figure of Nogizaka46 inspite of her efforts to be the former center for Nogizaka46 first 5 singleshe, she eventually had to wait until the12th single which was released on 22 July 2015 to re-take the center position of the group.
Some people might say that “Ikomachan” is a kind of serious and diligent, however, the truth is, she is a kind of big Otaku and enthusiastic fan of Japanese anime and boy’s comics (especially Gin Tama) with an addiction. Nanase Nishino in the group likes manga too, so they often engage in information exchange.
Furthermore, she is said a kind of mischievous, eccentric and “odd” person. For example, she is known to often “harass” other members by touching their bodies or pulling pranks on them. In fact she has said in an interview on magazine that she hopes to become a producer of a modelling agency or a photographer to take photos of beautiful girls with wearing white one-piece only. As just described, she really loves cute girls in a way.
We want you to understand her colorful character, not only her seriousness but also her unique world. You will notice you love her more than before.
