The approaching early summer and sound of waves (2023.05.03)

Happy Wednesday ☺️



When I hear the sound of waves, the summer when I was fifteen, where I was drawn by the sea and often came there by myself, comes to mind.



I am Odakura Reina
18 years old, from Tokyo.


I like walking without any thoughts in my mind.
Once, I passed through a forest while singing without having any map and reached the sea. The impromptu path I took while holding a water gun in one hand was really fun.


Won’t you go to the sea during this Golden Week?




○ Fukuoka Concert

Thank you to everyone who came to watch.
The stage’s distance to the Buddies was so close that I could see the faces of everyone in the highest level too, so I was nervous to the tips of my fingers. I could feel everyone’s enthusiasm and had a great time.


“Motsunabe wo motsu kaero~, motsu dake ni ne!” (Let’s bring home motsunabe~, get it?)
“Taichazuke tabetaiccha! Taichazuke dake ni ne!” (I wan’t to eat sea bream chazuke! Get it?)

I thought of puns related to Fukuoka foods, so I wanted to say it no matter what during the MC…
I hope someone found it funny and chuckled~ ¨̮

I actually like puns, so I’ve been writing them down to send from time to time when I start using the private message service 🪄


And, I had the opportunity to send off Seki Yumiko-san for her graduation.

She looked so beautiful and wonderful with her dress that it just filled my heart with sadness, knowing that it was the last day.

I wish Seki-san much happiness in the future.




○ QnA Corner

Q. What was your childhood dream?
A. When I was little, I was frightened by the fact that life had a time limit, and I wanted to become “eternity”.
I had this vague dream of wanting to be at least a person who will be remembered for a long time by others, but I hid it from everyone because they will tell me it’s weird lol


Q. Do you have a habit?
A. Maybe it’s that I keep saying sentences with a broad subject like  “Humans are~”.


Q. What is your weakness?
A. That I can’t tell left from right right away
Each time someone asks me “With which hand do you hold the chopsticks?” I have to think about it first before I answer.
Once I held the chopsticks with my left hand thinking that maybe I was confused because I’m ambidextrous, but I couldn’t pick anything up with it lol


Q. What do you enjoy most about writing a novel?
A. Looking up words in the dictionary.
I enjoyed looking up words I normally use everyday and making sure I didn’t get the definition wrong the most.


Q. A recent wishlist item?
A. A single-lens reflex (SLR) camera
I’ve always liked taking photos and I’ve been wanting a SLR camera for three years now.
I asked for recommendations from the cameraman-san so I will buy it soon.
Please tell me your recommendations too~!


Q. Have you had any pets?
A. I have a pet dog at home. They seem to like me, so they would follow me around, take naps with me, talk to me in dog language, they’re the best dog.
I also have a 12 year old loach and a goldfish. It has grown to an unimaginable size.


Q. What books have you bought recently?
A. “The City and Its Uncertain Walls” by Murakami Haruki-san
Seems like it’s a long story which he wrote over three years with him barely going outside, so I was thinking of reading it over the Golden Week.

I received a lot of book recommendations from everyone too, so I’m looking forward to reading them!

All of the 3rd gen members are featured in the
BUBKA June edition which went on sale on April 28th

Please do check it out~




○ About the 3rd gens
Lastly, I will be introducing Nakashima Yuzuki, Mukai Itoha, and Murayama Miu.

Yuuzu is straightforward and kind in everything.
She would always make us smile, so I think she is probably blessed by the God of Laughter. Yuuzu is a bundle of talent.

Itoha-chan is always cheerful and innocent to everyone. She is a super mood maker who can start a conversation with the seniors by herself. I really admire her. She also has a clingy side just like a 16 year old would and it’s cute.

Miu looks cold, but she’s a warm kid who is full of love. I often see her taking photos of the other 3rd gens. The expression she has on her face then is really lovely, so I thought to buy a camera and take a snap of it.


Please take care of us 3rd gens.


The first two-shot I’ll upload in my blog is with Nagi~
She ate the florentine I made for our first appearance in Sokosaku! I’m happy 🫰🏻

Look forward to Nagi’s blog tomorrow~


That’s all for today.


I hope to be the brightest star in your heart 💫
This was Odakura Reina.
