Bunko:: I have had quite a few photo sessions for Bejean
in a blazer-type uniform. The uniform I had on today had a collar
like a sailor suit. Almost like a junior high uniform. When I was
in school, we had something like a sailor suit with a blazer underneath.
So I am experienced in both - pretty economical, huh? (laughs).
I think the blue ribbon on the uniform I wore today was pretty cute,
Interviewer: You did the cover shot for the BS CD-ROM,
too. You must be used to the photo sessions now.
Bunko:: I'm not used to it at all. I'm not nervous or
anything. But making a smile, I get tired and can't smile any more.
So I end up with a kinda stiff look. And I don't like the bright
lights. It was good weather today, so the mirrors were especially
bright. But the staff today was mostly people I knew, so it was
an easy shoot.
Interviewer:I imagine you had a tiring day. So, what
brought you into this business in the first place?
Bunko:: At first, I had no interest in the business at
all. A friend introduced me and last February, I started modeling
all of a sudden. I have been modeling for magazine covers for Bejean
and the like. But to tell the truth, I don't like to have my picture
taken that much.
Interviewer:Really? All the high school girls nowadays
are into print club and taking pictures.
Bunko:: I have never done print club. To tell the truth,
I don't get out that much. I go straight home after school and watch
dramas on TV or watch movies on video. I just like being spaced
out in front of the TV (laughs).
Interviewer:Sounds just like a housewife. Your stage
name "Bunko: Kanazawa" has a lot of impact. Do you know
where it came from?
Bunko:: Actually, the name was decided before I even
heard about it. I don't know why I got that name. I told the staff
that anything would be OK. And they said, "You are Bunko: Kanazawa
from now on." (laughs)
