Different beginnings

-First of all, please tell us why you decided to audition.
Riana: I was aiming for an exclusive model of egg, because I love gal.

-When did you start liking gals?
Riana: I have liked gals since I was a little girl. I liked reading “BETTY”, “egg” and “ageha” since I was an elementrary school student, and I like Kumi Koda. The reason why I like them so much might be because there where so many around.

-What about you Chanfumi?
Chanfumi: On the contrary, I was scared of gals when I was little. However, one day I went to a festival and there was a gal there who was gentle enough to buy me a chocolate covered banana. After that I became fond of gals, especially Hana Imai and became one myself.

-So, did you have any difficulties during the audition period?
Riana: To get support we had to do many live streams on Line. Like karaoke or just anything people wanted to watch.

Chanfumi: I also participated in the previous audition, but at that time I only streamed about once every three days. And I could not watch the streams from other participants. But this timeI could, and I watched a lot of people and studied, thought how to increase the number of people who watched. And worked hard to stream every day.

-In the end you got the Model Press Award, but please tell us your frank feelings.
Riana: I’m glad you chose me, but I’m sorry that I didn’t win.

Chanfumi: I’m happy, but I’m sorry that I couldn’t win.

-Riana is already working as an  “egg girl”. What did you improve in this audition?
Riana: I improved my conversation skills with “LINE LIVE”.

Fame & Nail Design

-Please tell us about your future.
Riana: I want to be famous! I would like to be an egg model, but I like gals so I want to be famous as a gal and create a clothing brand in the future.

-What about Chanfumi?
Chanfumi: I want to open a nail shop myself. I want to do it.

-Did you do today’s nails as well?
Chanfumi: I did them myself. I watch YouTube and my sister-in-law works at a nail shop and teaches me.

-That’s amazing! By the way, please tell me the point of makeup?
Chanfumi: Don’t become a panda (laughs).

-How many falsies do you have on today?
Chanfumi: This is a stack of five (laughs). But recently my makeup has gotten a bit watered down.

Riana: I also feel like I stack…but I only have two.

Wearing false lashes since elementrary & Living alone at 13

-Next, I want to know what kind of children you where. How where you in elementary school / junior high school?
Riana: I started wearing false lashes in the lower grades of elementary school. I’ve always been a kids brand model, and it’s a gal-like brand, so that influenced me as well.

Chanfumi: I was always annoying my parents… I had a rebellious period (laughs). One day, my parents gave me a key and told me to live alone from second year of junior high, saying, “You will learn how hard it is to live alone.” From year 2-3 (13-15 years old) of junior high I lived alone, the for year 1-2 of high school I lived in a share house with my friends and now I live with my boyfriend.

-Lastly, please tell us the “secrets of fulfilling your dreams”.
Chanfumi: There are many types of gals, and even though you  might think “I am a gal,” many people will say that you are not a gal. But I think that if I think I am a gal, then I am a gal. Kuro gyaru aren’t the only gyaru, there are also Shiro gyaru. But if you don’t let what people tell you become a complex then I think you can boldly move forward and make your dream come true

Riana: For me it is not giving up. I think it’s about going on without giving up.

– Thank you very much.
