Trivia

  • Hobbies: Baton twirling. She likes it so much, that for competitions she used to practice from nine in the morning to nine at night on weekends. She was part of the Athletics club at her school, however, she only made an appearance there every ~6 months because of her Baton Twirling practicising; she referred to herself as a "Ghost Member". She still won a 3km run as part of her Athletics Club, and she says it was probably due to the fact that she kept fit for her competitions anyway. She made it into the Top 8 of Japan's Baton Twirlers for a National Competition when she was in High School. For the AKB48 Drama "Tofu Pro Wrestling", her wrestling nickname was also "Baton Katomina" because of this.
  • Special skill: Acrobatic performance ("I can do back & front flips!"). During NGT performances when Katomina centers Heavy Rotation, instead of doing Oshima Yuko's famous split, she does a backflip.
  • Charm point: Aura
  • Favorite food: White Italian and
  • Favorite saying: "My biggest rival is myself."
  • Favorite AKB48 song: Gesuna Yume
  • Favorite AKB48 stage outfit: The costume for Dare ga Watashi wo Nakaseta?
  • One-line message: "I can be happy every day because you are supporting me!"
  • Is close to Nakai Rika (RikaMina), Yamada Noe (MinaNoe or Katoepii), Ogino Yuka and Takakura Moeka. For Katomina's seitansai in 2018, Moeka wrote her a letter in which she explained how heavily she has been relying on Katomina from day one, and that Katomina was the first person she took pictures with at the auditions for NGT48.
  • Has a very active dog named Maron. Despite this, she has said in an episode of Niigata no Friend that she doesn't feel very comfortable around animals and gets scared of most of them.
  • Her main goal is to achieve a center position for an NGT48 single.
  • The member she looks up to is Oya Shizuka.
  • She is the only member of NGT48 that entered the group through 1st Gen auditions to rank in the 8th Senbatsu Selection.
  • She has a surprising lack of common knowledge.
