First is the interview:
Hirate Yurina – “Techi” – took on the position of centre for Keyakizaka46’s debut single, Silent Majority. She used to be a centre in basketball, too, and her athletic ability is outstanding. In a psychological test, she was judged most suited to be an idol out of all the group’s members. She’s the embodiment of potential.
But it can’t be forgotten that she is still in third-year middle school, and is 14 years old…! “Love stories” with that cherubic face?
By the way, when she entered Keyakizaka46, she was 160cm tall. Now she is 164cm. “It seems that I’m still growing.” Unrivalled centre…just how big will she become!?
In this series, each member gives us a 24-hour clock of her off-days…
Hirate: What can I do? It’s a nothing day. …this is really such boring stuff.
Honestly, nothing you say sounds that boring…. Before going to sleep, you say you spend two hours “in the futon.” What does that mean?
Hirate: I love being inside the futon. Even in summer, I put the A-C on and snuggle inside the futon. Mainly, I’m just playing with my phone.
