Some people have said that they want to get to know BⅡ but they can’t because there isn’t a lot of subtitles and stuff. And by some people, I mean one person.
Well, not to worry!
Here’s a very brief description of each of the members.
Akazawa Hono (Honori)
-Takes on the sexy character of BⅡ, not much to really say other than that. She has a very tiny mole under her left eye and jokes about how it makes her sexier.
Ishizuka Akari (Anchu)
-A ball of energy, aspires to be a comedy actress. She isn’t as crazy as she used to be but is still a strong presence in shows and MCs and can be quite loud.
Ijiri Anna (Antan)
-One of the older members of BⅡ. Pretty good at talking and MCs. She tends to yell a lot and has a kimochi warui (creepy/gross) character.
Ueda Mirei (Miire)
-Not known for doing much besides being cute. One time Mako told her to demonstrate her killer tsukkomi and it was terrible. Also refuses to let her face be seen without makeup.
Yuuri Ota (Yuuri)
-A bratty girl like Shuu, loves to make fun of other members. Great talking skill aside from that.
Katou Yuuka (Uuka)
-The lesser known of the two BⅡ members who get into senbatsu. Calls herself beaver. One of the top dancers in NMB. Some Japanese fans like her childish face combined with her oppai, but I’ll leave that to your imagination.
Kamieda Emika (Emichi)
-Likes horses. Has a palindrome for a name in Japanese. Accused of acting like a kid (burikko) all the time and enjoying being bullied. Rose to fame after getting 2nd in last year’s Janken tournament. Also somewhat known for having a really nice body.
Kusaka Konomi (Konomin)
-Often called enoki for her resemblance to that mushroom, also known for looking sleepy all the time. Very skilled dancer. She tends to be very tennen (like Kojima Haruna, free-spirited yet kind of “dumb”).
Kushiro Rina (Rinacchi)
-Prominent mole on her chin, also has the “idol look.” Quiet in MCs, and also takes care of a number of hamsters that she likes to talk about.
Kurokawa Hazuki (Haako)
-Deceivingly bratty like Shuu and Yuuri, but she frames it so that she sounds nice. Also acts childlike like Emichi. Decent performance level and a loveable smile.
Kouno Saki (Sakipi)
-Former local Hiroshima idol, plays off of her Hiroshima hometown image. Is extremely smart and could have attended Tokyo University (the premier university of Japan). Multi-talented, can play a number of instruments and has artistic skill. Was nicknamed Keromatsu (Froakie) by Shuu, and now is sometimes called Doraemon because of her high-pitched voice.
Kobayashi Rikako (Rippi)
-Loves fashion and has pretty good style when she dresses off-shot. Known for being short. Also has a really good tsukkomi. Graduating from the group soon to pursue fashion studies.
Muro Kanako (Murokana)
-Athletic with model aspirations. Talks a lot about dieting and exercise. Had a slight rise to fame when competing with Suda Akari in a limbo competition.
Yabushita Shuu (Shuu)
-The ace of the group. Extremely bratty and makes fun of people a lot like Yuuri. Infamous for going up to Yokoyama Yui and saying “Pearls before swine” when she noted that they both got pearls for the HA! filming, not knowing what the phrase means. Killer smile.
Yamauchi Tsubasa (Chuba)
-The youngest of the group. Out indefinitely because of a foot injury. Known for being one of the best singers in BⅡ, she schooled everyone when they went to go karaoke.
