From Hello! Online –
Kimura Ayaka ( 木村 絢香 ), who left Up-Front Agency and Hello! Project earlier this week, has a profile page up at her new talent Agency, Tristone Entertainment. This agency is also home to other popular actors such as (Yaguchi Mari’s ex-boyfriend) Oguri Shun.
She also has taken a new name, Nagate Ayaka ( 長手 絢香 ). According to her new profile page, this is her new “stage name”. During her time in H!P, her stage name was simply “Ayaka”, and was always spelled out in katakana ( アヤカ ).
Her profile page also includes a resume of past projects she’s worked on. You can see the full profile here.
Yay! I’m looking forward to whatever she does~ ^^
