Q: Somewhere between fall and winter, you're scheduled to have a CD debut. It's a CD single called Koi suru soldier/Kanojyo wa Ijiwaru. What kinds of songs are featured on the CD?

Chisaki: The genre is Pop 'n Roll. It's good that the name is so cute! Based on a cute pop rhythm, touches of rock and dance music are added here and there. It's kind of like a toy box being turned over.

Q: From what you say, it seems like it's going to be a fun song, but what are the lyrics about?

Chisaki: It's a story about a girl about my age. Normally, even if I go to karaoke, I'm not the singing type, but when I tried singing (this song) it was fun. I also had fun doing the recording, so I'm looking forward to the finished product.

Q: We can't wait for it to be released. By the way, after watching you at today's photo shoot, we felt that you seemed so used to them. You are currently working as a model in Melon, right?

Chisaki: Yes. At the beginning, I was nervous, but lately I've gotten accustomed to it, and it's turning out to be fun. But it still feels strange seeing myself on the magazine. It feels like it's not me.

Q: On the other hand, you were also chosen to appear regularly in the drama Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, playing the role Mercury.

Chisaki: I've watched the show since I was a child—that's why I never dreamed I'd play that role. I was so happy, I couldn't believe it! But it was my first experience acting in a drama; I was so nervous my stomach hurt. (laughs) My part is that of an outstanding student—so different from me.

Q: What kind of a girl is Chisaki normally? Your hobbies and special abilities.

Chisaki: I make sweet foods often, like cheesecakes. I've made them with my parents since I was a child. Other dishes? I can cook a little. Like curry rice and hamburger (meat).

Q: Aside from making sweets, do you like to eat?

Chisaki: I love to. Chocolates, for example. I ate cake early this morning. (laughs)

Q: It would be nice if you were chosen to appear in a sweets commercial

Chisaki: That sounds good. I want to do commercial.

Q: We are looking forward for more of your work. When your CD debut single is released, it looks like there is going to be an event scheduled.

Chisaki: Yes. I never had a chance to meet the fans personally; I'm looking forward for it!
