Idol group AKB48’s Kojima Haruna(27) was at the opening ceremony for a Tiffany store in Yokohama on the 23rd April and talked about sousenkyo and marriage, amongst other stuff. With regards to her withdrawal from this year’s Senbatsu Sousenkyo, she confessed that it was a tough decision and she’d work harder with a heightened level of responsibility.
“It’s good that fans always want me to participate, but I want to be a person whom fans can say ‘you won’t participate right?’ to,” said Kojima, indirectly expressing her wish to concentrate on solo activities.
With this decision, it may seem likely that she’d graduate soon, but Kojima explained that she’s still not decided on the timing yet. “However, I have gotten advice from a fortune teller. I can’t tell you though,” she laughed.
Takahashi Minami, who is exiting AKB48 this year, has declared her wish of getting No.1 in this year’s elections. When Kojima heard this,she said “I wanted to get into the senbatsu which Takamina is center for, so it was like ‘what?’. I regretted making this decision,”she laughed bitterly.
In the video, Kojima also said she wants Takamina to win No.1. Her ideal form of proposal seems to be having the guy propose while they are watching TV. She also revealed that the fortune teller expects her to be married by age 28 or 29!
