Anthony says: What to say about Komori… I think she’s an alien disguised as a human. Do not take that to offense, what I’m trying to say is that she is a one and only character. I think we’ve all witnessed her legendary moments on the variety shows like this one.

I wonder sometimes if she calculates the comedy that she creates but I have a feeling that she is like that in real life. She has room to grow as a performer but as a personality, you can’t beat her.


Garry says: Mikapon is possibly my favorite member of AKB48. Her personality is second to none and I always get a kick out of seeing her crazy antics play out, whether it be on television or on Google+ where she posts all manner of random things. Not to mention the fact that she’s a really great dancer too. She also falls into my personal favorite category of “doesn’t try to be someone she’s not” which is a huge plus in my book. Unfortunately her persona doesn’t really lend very well to mainstream popularity, in the idol world at least. I’d personally love to see her get more variety show work because I feel like that’s where she really shines as a performer right now.

  1. I will always have a soft spot for Komorin myself. I find it impossible not to, here is a bueatiful young idol tall and leggy who has this complete oddball personality! Some of the stuff she does really indicate that she lives in her own World (or is perhpas visinting ours from another) but watching her go along in her own way is often a true joy to watch

    The best thing is this really is who she is (though many have claimed she is a secret genius) and that she has never thought it neccesary to change. Including being uabale too pull of being a Yankii at all, thus leading to her silent character in Majisuka!

    It’s a shame she seems to be unable to move forward in AKB from what was a good start, I feel as though she just dosnt really connect enough with a mainstream audience but then where else but in the idol world could Komorin do what she does, I just feel it’s a shame we can see more of who she is on shows…

  2. Haven’t even gotten a chance to read this yet.. but I agree. Komori has always been strong in my heart.. she’s the reason I wake up in the mornings and even try… without Komori I don’t think I’d really care to go on living, I’m dead serious. That’s how perfect Komori is.

    KOMORI…. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH./ ill read this when i get to work, cant wait.

  3. One of the things I find endearing about Komorin is her story from Majisuka Gakuen. After struggling with her lines, and becoming really upset about it, they made her character a mute (Mukuchi, her character name and description.) So her finally getting lines and them being impact-full, is almost cathartic for her as well as her character, and she seemed to happy in the second series after she was able to get lines, as if she was really beginning to enjoy herself.

  4. Sleeps with her eyes open.

    that’s a funny image

  5. Komorin: the sweetest girl in AKB world!
