Quick! Before you scroll down, choose ROCK, PAPER or SCISSORS. You will see why at the bottom.
Haruka Kodama STUNS in this blue kimono! I will have to admit that I have not followed the HKT48 very much yet. The market for the “Hawks Town” 48 seems to targeted a little lower in age than AKB48. Kodama-san is a rising member in the AKB Family however, and I have taken notice.
This 18 year old Yamaguchi Prefecture native is turning into a fan favorite. Haruka or “Haruppi” (her nickname) is the “oshimen” or at least the HKT “oshi” for many fans.
If you’re happy … then I’m happy, Haruppi!
Her nickname reminds me of the cute HKT48 single “Hikame I Love You” linked here . I even have it stuck in my head now … “HAPPY … HAPPY…”
Haruka Kodama is part of a “dynamic duo” within the HKT48 along with co-member Sakura Miyawaki. I’ve noticed that there is always a “dynamic duo” in each sister group. In NMB48 it would be Sayaka and Miyuki. In JKT48 it would be Melodie and Haruka. In SKE48 it would be Jurina and Rena. AKB … probably Mayuyu and Yukirin.
Sakura (L) and Haruka (R) of HKT48. They are not in kimono, but these dresses are very pretty. Maybe the sash and dress are “kimono-inspired” fashion!
Haruppi trivia: Kodama-san’s birthday is September 19, 1996. Exactly the same day when I last updated my webpage at work!
Help me UPLOAD Haruppi-chan!!!
Get this — her favorite color is “Black and White”. That is odd, for the very colorful “Happy Haruppi”!
Of course Haruka Kodama is inspirational to digital artists!
Are you ready to face Haruka now?
DID YOU WIN? I’ll bet you chose Scissors!
OK, Haruppi, you can relax now … Hey! … that’s not a kimono that’s a ROBE!
Starlight: I calculated that it is 6,899.27 miles to the Hawks Town Mall. How many Kodama postage stamps would it take to get my letter to Hawks Town?
