A Brief Look at the Career of Erena Ono

Japan has lots of beautiful and talented pop music singers. And Erena Ono is another one of them. Or at least she was when I first started to cover her life and career back in 2012 or so. She is what is known as a Japanese idol singer. She is one of those that has this sort of cute girl next door kind of look. She is a sort of less cute version of Atsuko Maeda if you know what I mean. She was also formerly part of the very popular female idol group AKB48. As many in Japan know, AKB48 is divided into teams with each one having a captain. Ono was part of AKB48’s Team K until she decided to graduate or leave the group. Her departure was announced on September 27, 2010 and she wanted to study acting abroad. However, she later changed her mind and stayed in Japan, citing reasons to return into the entertainment business. She started with AKB48 back in 2006.
