Natsuyaki Miyabi’s Profile

Natsuyaki Miyabi, January 2014

History

Natsuyaki Miyabi’s career began when she passed the Hello! Project Kids auditions in 2002 along side fifteen other girls.

She was chosen to join the group Aa!, with then newest 6th generation Morning Musume member Tanaka Reina as leader and fellow H!P Kids member Suzuki Airi who would be a future °C-ute member. They released only one single: “First Kiss” which was released on October 29, 2003. The status of the group as a recording unit is unknown, but the original lineup “reformed” for live performances in 2007.

Miyabi was one of the eight members selected to form the group Berryz Kobo in 2004. She is one of the lead vocalists in the group, along with Sugaya Risako, Tsugunaga Momoko, and Kumai Yurina. As well as being a member of Berryz Kobo, she also use to participates in the band’s weekly radio show “Berryz Kobo Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki!” until Momoko’s solo radio show took over the time slot. In that same year, she was cast as a character in “Koinu Dan no Monogatari”, however, due to her age, she did not have a large part. Many members of Hello! Project Kids and Morning Musume participated in this film.

In 2004, before the official creation of Berryz Kobo, all of Hello! Project participated in a large shuffle group that produced one single, “All For One & One For All!” This song is considered one of the themes of Hello! Project.

Miyabi became a member of Hello! Project’s shuffle unit “Sexy Otonjan” in 2005. Like Aa! there are only 3 members, which were herself, Miki Fujimoto now ex-Morning Musume member, and now ex-C-ute member Megumi Murakami. They only produced one song called “Onna, Kanashii, Otona”, which translates as “Woman, Sad, Adult”.

In 2007, Miyabi was chosen along with fellow Berryz Kobo member Tsugunaga Momoko and C-ute member Suzuki Airi to form a new unit named Buono!, originially created to sing the opening and ending songs for the Shugo Chara! anime series. On July 21, 2007, the unit was officially announced at the Nakayoshi magazine Festival 2007 at Tokyo’s Sunshine City in Ikebukuro, and formed to sing both the opening (“Kokoro no Tamago”) and ending (“Honto no Jibun”) themes for the anime adaptation of the Shugo Chara! manga.

In 2009, Aa! was taken off hiatus and reformed into the “second generation”, which now consists of two of the original members, with Miyabi as the leader, Suzuki Airi and Hello! Pro Egg member Saho Akari (who also was in the group Shugo Chara! Egg as Amulet Spade to sing songs for the anime Shugo Chara!, like with Buono!, in the second season of the anime) to replace Tanak Reina, who was forusing on Morning Musume and High-King. The newly formed group released a new single called “YES-YES-YES”.

Ex-Morning Musume members Junjun and Linlin chose Miyabi to be in a special unit with them and another ex-Morning Musume member Kusumi Koharu. The announcement was made on the International Channel Shanghai (ICS) show “Music Story in Japan”.

Natsuyaki released her first E-Hello DVD titled Natural & Cool in Feburary 2011.

Natsuyaki is set to start in a stage play titled B・B~bumpy buddy~ along with Sudou Maasa and Yasuda Kei starting from May 9th to the 15th 2012.

Natsuyaki was diagnosed with Peritonsillar Absces, an infection of the tonsils in March 2012. Because of this, she had to rest at home for at least 5 days, and so she missed a few days of Berryz concert tour.

In June 2012 it was announced that, alongside Tokunaga Chinami, Yajima Maimi, Nakajima Saki and Iikubo Haruna, Natsuyaki would be part of a new H!P titled titled DIY♡ (Dance In Your Heart) and will release a new song titled Forefore ~Forest for Rest~ for the Hello! Pro SATOYAMA Life movement project.
