Ladies and gentlemen, the Niigaki Risa boom has come.
Some crazy points here, coming from a huge Gaki-san fan. Apologies in advance if this sounded bias.
Old news made new. Way back (I think a couple months) before Yossie’s graduation announcement, read from somewhere that there were some ‘insider’ rumour from internal staffs, that Yoshizawa Hitomi, Fujimoto Miki and Takahashi Ai have their solo plans scheduled already. Was it true? Now Yossie’s gone, two to go. When? This year? Next year? I don’t know. But one thing’s for sure, the year 2007 has to be Gaki-san’s time to shine. (Read the complete article at Jinryuichi’s blog.)
When I first saw “Gaki-san” (Risa’s nickname) in the group I read her last name as “Arakaki” and was surprised to find that it’s actually read as “Niigaki”. Her place of birth is Yokohama, not Okinawa, but her grandmother lives there and it’s also her favorite place in Japan.
