“She is very bad at dancing, but she has more confidence in singing. She hasn't actually gotten to practice it while holding a mic, so she wants to be able to do voice lessons soon. She's bad at memorizing the moves and remembering them when the time comes, so she wants to practice more at home and get everything down.
The toughest thing about being a KSS is coming to rehearsals, and greeting and bowing to everyone and then not being able to do any of the performances and having people who have worked harder and are better than her have to stop what they're doing and help her because she's so far behind. Having so many chances to work with her seniors is rough, but she thinks it's worth doing.
She wants to become someone who leaves an impression with people even when she's performing with all of her generation-mates. They are all her rivals, because they joined at the same time but there are girls better at singing and much better at dancing, so she wants to be able to catch up to them.
She tried during the performance to be aware of her facial expressions, since she's prone to gloomy ones, but seeing the crowd get excited during their song made her feel happy more naturally.
Tsunku's comments: Your dancing is still half-hearted, I want to focus on the rhythm. The movements overall are very subtle, and so it's good to be able to show those subtle movements visibly, so I want you to go on to working on those subtle gestures. When your bangs are longer you look gloomy, so it might be better to keep them cut.
Her dream is to have a major debut, so she wants to continue her activities in the KSS and work on her expressions so that her smile can reach everyone.”
“Interview of Tsubaki Factory (Camellia Factory) members by UFL-Staff: Kisora Niinuma
To celebrate their major debut, UFL interviewed all members of the group!
UFL-Staff: First of all, please introduce yourself.
Kisora Niinuma: I am Kisora Niinuma, from Aichi, 17 years old.
UFL-Staff: How did you feel when you heard you were going to have your major debut?
Kisora Niinuma: First of all, I felt that finally, we have the chance of becoming major! I was so happy... But I really wonder what will happen from now...
UFL-Staff: Did you have the chance of going overseas? If yes, where? And where would you like to go in the future?
Kisora Niinuma: Never, but I really want to go! It could be privately, or for a live to meet fans, I want to do a world tour! (Laughing) I really want to go to some Asian countries but I also want to go to the USA. USA looks so big, the cities, the food, etc. but I cannot speak at all English! (Laughing)
UFL-Staff: What is your goal from now?
Kisora Niinuma: I need to improve my singing and my dance capacities... I also would like that people will remember my name so I hope we can have soon a live tour.
UFL-Staff: Please describe yourself in two words.
Kisora Niinuma: “Fuwafuwa” (which can be translated by “sweet” or "fluffy") and “fushigi” (which can be translated by “strange”)! Many people told me I am strange, I don’t really know why! (Laughing) And “fuwafuwa” because I am sweet with people.
UFL-Staff: A last word to the foreigners and people who discover you?
Kisora Niinuma: Tsubaki Factory (Camellia Factory) is major now but we need to become more famous, many people have to discover us! Please support us!”
