Is Honma? It passed the idling !!!, but I made a round four years, I think it I Na are asked to let the amazing study period in idling !!!. Then, ask them to do it the model, it has changed from the heart. Even in shooting as Idol, I feel like with confidence get to take in the stance Tteyuu "Please take me."

- Do you there is a difference between their Idol of himself and his model? 
Model is something, it's a Okay in naturally. My in image basis. But when it comes to idle, is not it wants if there is a person looking and eyes. So Nde Looking At Camera is the main, because I want you to look cute, and a little nervous. At first I thought Nde cover of also this time, do Kana neat feeling good like Moraeru happy as Idol? If you think Toka, I was a little nervous (laughs).

- Twenty years old this year. It is increasingly dominating likely to model to idle. 
I thought from doing the model and not red, such woven into beautiful by raising the women's force, and a hella hormone love, that sweet things useless, I'll taste'm a another father, Honmani (laughs). It combines both the women's force and father force, and with properly a sense of responsibility, I want to be an adult woman.
