The longest serving member of AKB48 – Kojiharu’s graduation

[Heart.Electric -Dance ver.- AKB48]

Haruna Kojima, “Kojiharu” of AKB48 announced her graduation from the group on February 22. This announcement was made on June 18 at the live event in Niigata, Japan.  Kojima, who participated in this year’s election as “mysterious member Nyannyan Kamen,” ranked in at 16th place. Haruna Kojima explained the reason why she took part last year’s election like this way, “My participation in the general elections eventually ended 2 years ago somehow. Last year, I didn’t really want to stand as a candidate. But as my last time, I thought I would participate and do something for AKB48…I, Kojima Haruna, will finally graduate from AKB48.”

From this point forward, this article will introduce some examples of her idol episodes. All the fans realize the only think we can do until her graduation is to look nicely after her. Until her graduation in February, she is a member of AKB48 under Team A and has been one of the core members of the group for ages. Her fans know and love her capricious and amusing character. When Haruna Kojima participated in the first AKB48 audition in July 2005, she said later on “I sent an email with the application attached with just a self-image photo taken by a mobile phone, because it can take 10-times prettier than usual,.” Although she voluntarily applied for the audition and passed it along with 23 other members, she looked at AKB48 project with cold eyes even she tried to skip the first dance lesson because of her part-time job. But later she was finally persuaded by the manager of AKB48 Theater. If he hadn’t succeeded to persuade her, we wouldn’t even have known her at all. Thanks to the manager.

There is  another story, “Kojiharu”, who has been making regular appearance on No Sleeves’s radio show ‘Weekly No Sleeves’ and AKB’s radio show AKB’s ANN (All Night Nippon) , has once again affirmed her reputation as Genius (one of her nicknames) as her fans collect her remarks during the show as a compilation of which her complains about those messages from her fans why they sent her nonsensical messages. This is because those fans want to see her teased reactions like that on purpose for fun.

“Why there’re only crazy messages like this…”
“This……… what does this person want to do with this comment…”
“Really….. all the messages are not funny at all!! All’re rubbish!!”
“From now I don’t allow you to send XX-like of mail”
“Did you write this with a sane mind???”

Fans also saved her comments in the show from the counseling section of the programs in which listeners consult members and ask about their troubles or problems.

“I don’t think he is having a trouble at all!”
“Really all comments are weird!!”
“Uhmmm I somehow can’t understand what she wants to consult to me… and it’s not funny too….”
“So…. everyone… I DON’T READ ANYTHING today!!! Don’t waste your time to wait until I start reading in other sections!! Go To Bed!!!”

Fans reacted to this brief summary of Kojiharu on radio with comments:
“Kojima-san is Sadistic!”
“Yeah she is genius!!”
“LOL It’s funny even only reading those sentences of her remark…”
“NOPE She used to be more sharp… like a razor…. Not she’s become mild…”
“Okay I got it.. she is an angel.”
“LOL it’s absolutely Kojiharu’s bonus presents for you guys!” “I mean… those listeners sent these nonsensical letters in order to draw Kojiharu’s angry remarks!!”
“Please add another bonus… stomping on me…..”

Those of her comments with her sharp tongue are not only against listeners but also “Takamina” (Minami Takahashi, a best friend of Kojima) actually enjoyed/suffered being a victim of Kojiharu.

Words of annoyed Kojiharu to Takamina on the radio:

“Sigh…… it’s not funny!  it’s not funny!”
“Please I beg you, don’t say that gag again!!!”
“Why your nose has such a peculiar shape???”
“Huhh boring…”
“Are you seriously saying this?? “
“Yeah yeah Takamina is soooooooooo weird!!”
“What a flat hair!!!”
“Ahhh obviously you don’t have a good taste (of gag)…. though I already knew it..”
“Why you are so boring!?”
“Wait! Takamina wants to graduate No Sleeves (Takamina didn’t say anything at all lol)”
“You are telling a lie~~~~!”
“Please stop lying!!”
“Noooooo I miss you so much after you leave (No Sleeves)!!! (again, Takamina didn’t say anything at all lol)””
“You’re really slow!!”
“I hate the way Takamina touches things!!”
“I hate Takamina!”
“HiwaMina (Hiwai = Erotic in gross way, Hiwai + Takamina = HiwaMina)”
“I think we are not compatible each other…!”

During the section in which No Sleeves members introduce funny blog posts of AKB members, Kojiharu asks, “So what’s funny about this??” 

To wrap it up, the listeners who sent letters to Kojiharu and other members trying to amuse Kojiharu with funny jokes, sounds like kind of masochist. There is a  rumor among fans that messages sent to the show consulting Kojiharu of serious matters as primary objective may be removed by the staff to carry on the communications with the listeners.
