Thanks to Mariko that the show which has been running in the dark for 2~3 years now suddenly on all over front page of every newspaper XDD
Mariko’s memories about Sayaka:
"At first she looked really tough. Since she looked like she was into rivalry with everybody in Team A, I thought she was someone very unpleasant. But when we were in the same unit in Himawari stage I realized she’s a really good girl."
"I remember this most about her, when we went to karaoke together. She was singing heartbreak song while crying like a river. She was too serious."
When asked about the type of person Mariko likes:
"I don’t really know what type of person I like, but I don’t think I will suddenly fall for someone right away."
Mariko’s advice for Sayaka:
"Once you become less busy, you might feel insecure I think. But it’s better to use such time for yourself more."
"I think Sayaka has really high potential, her acting is really good, she can do a lot of things. I think she’d be better off going solo."
