Takahashi Minami vs. The Chairs

  • As revealed to her in AKBINGO! (July 7, 2010), the only reason Takamina passed the initial written auditions was because of her height (148.5cm) and her birthdate (4/8/1991) both having the numbers 4 and 8.
    • During a segment in AKBINGO!, it was revealed that since their last check-up, she has been troubled by the result that she lost 5mm (in height, from 148.5cm to 148cm). In addition, during the EX-Episode for Majisuka Gakuen 2, she learned that Ichikawa Miori became taller than her

  • Likes guys who wear suits. Thinks it's dreamy when they're fixing their collars
