Early Life Edit
Hikaru Watanabe was born on February 15 1994 in Hokkaido. She is currently the oldest member in the group. She has been an idol for 8 years.
At one point she experienced an unspecified distress, which had made her depressed. When she was depressed, Rika Shimura encouraged her. Hikaru said later in the radio program that "She [Rika] really helped me at that time."
On September 3 Watanabe auditioned to be a part of Morning Musume's 8th generation. She passed the first and second round. However on November 5 she failed to pass the third round.
She had her own Youtube segment which was called "It go! Hikaru-chan." It aired on the SUPER GiRLS channel.
She choreographed for the clam chowder ga same chau getsuyoubi, a song from SUPER☆CASTLE. She is an idol, but also has a talent for choreography.
She choreographed for Kagami yo kagami, a song by Minami Takahashi, when Nana Asakawa appeared on the Japanese TV program, "Konno, Ima kara odorutteyo".
She appeared in two stage shows and showed proficiency in acting. The first show was called "TERMINAL", which was in January and second was "Oukoku" in July. She played the leading part in both of the shows.
Personality EditHer nickname is Pikarun, but most people don't actually call her Pikarun. She is usually called "Hikaru-chan" by many fans and members. She created a new word, "Nyosu". She used this word alone at first, but now members use this word sometimes. Nyosu tranalsates to Hi in English.
She loves coffee. She has a prepaid Starbucks card, and her father recharges it sometimes. There was a period when she didn't really have any money, so when Rina Miyazaki once invited her to buy something to eat for lunch, she refused, but Hikaru told her "I can buy something in Starbucks, because my father recharged it 10000 yen."
She is very kind toward anyone, and mostly, the members don't make funny faces, but she had done it in GirlsTV. Also, she can imitate gorillas. She is one of the few funny members in SUPER☆GiRLS.
