Yui Mizuno about school and BABYMETAL in New York on Gekkan Entame
Q: How do you look like and how do your friends in school describe you?
Yui: "I see myself silly. I asked my closest friend, she said “matured and tennen-san”. (Laughs)"
Q: Is there any new aspect of yourself you realized lately?
Yui: "It’s not recent thought I realized I’m not catching up with trendings but I got hooked by “Frozen”, so it goes smooth now. (Laughs)"
Q: You wrote you’re into “Amachan” on the questionaire.
Yui: "I found it pretty late, I watched “The Amachan Special” at the year end and got into it. I become to love Nounen Rena-chan so much that I own her photobook!"
Q: What characteristics of her attract you?
Yui: "I love her atmosphere. She’s white as an angel and I also love her natural and unaffected presence. That big black eyes and short hair. She’s very cute and expressive on her blog. Yui wants to become like her."
Q: How was New York, you went as Babymetal?
Yui: "I really enjoy it, we could visit the Statue Of The Liberty, a museum and others places. I also found that it’s cool to say “Hello” to passerby each other."
Q: How are your grades going at school?
Yui: I’m often say “You would be an airhead” but my grades are not so bad! I’ll try my best to get straight 5 A's after this!
Q: What’s your favorite subject these days?
Yui: "Mathematics, for now. I’m learning factorization and expansion. I wasn’t good at it before but it’s becoming interesting once I understood."
Q: You are a trendy Rikejo (female science student). How do you spend your dayoffs?
Yui: "I study and do homework first, after that I play with Sakura Gakuin members and others unless I have any other duty."
Q: What do you play?
Yui: "I went to the Disneyland with Moa and 4 graduates of 2013 (Marina, Raura,Nene ,Hinata) the other day. I wish to go with the other 3rd graders (Yunano, Hana) too but we can’t find a chance, hopefully in summer vacation."
Q: Is there anything else you would like to do?
Yui: "I want to go to KidZania because only under Jr. High 3rd grades are allowed to enter! I tried a pilot last time so I want to try my admiring cabin attendant next time."
Q: Sounds like fun! Lastly, how tall would you like to become in the future?
Yui: "I’m 153cm now and my mom is 162cm. so I want to become taller than her. If possible, I would like to talk with Ayaka-chan and Airi-chan (around 171cm) at the same height!"
