  • Quotes

    • Kyoko: I like snakes too. Also alligators. I think it's so cute. I like the expressionless face. So I don't like the ones with expressions. For example the dragon in Never Ending Story. I don't like that. I like the faces that don't show expression, but still show feelings.

    • Kyoko: I scolded a crow one other day. It was going through the garbage, so I told it not to do so. Then it stared at me.

    • Kyoko: If I saw a friend in the recording studio, I'd say "Ohayou" (good morning). However if I saw Miyamu, I would say "love love" and hug her.

    • Kyoko: I hated school lunches. I like curry rice, but I don't like the ones at school. I'm very slow at eating, and I wasn't used to eating bread. They had bread and milk and they would let us play until we finished eating. So I hated school lunch. I hated school lunch, and athletic meets, and gym class.
