Happy Birthday my beloved Cakey!!! ＼（＾▽＾）／
Your smile is the most precious thing ever and it is really contagious! It lights up the whole world and it makes everything seem so alive. Your dorkiness is unbearably cute, I just want to squeeze you tightly! Please never change!
Keiko is very serious and earnest, no matter in what regard, she is the type to work extremely hard. I am quite irresponsible and unserious at times so she always provides great support. Looking at Keiko’s efforts and her endurance, I can’t help becoming motivated myself, “Right! Yes! I have to do this!” If I didn’t have her in my life I’d be utterly useless *laughs*.
In everyday conversations she will often say things that I would never have expected. In fact, I have a notebook called “Kei-quotes” where I will often write down all her little quirks and what not, it’s quite fascinating *laughs*! For example, these days when there’s something exciting happening and the tension is high, she won’t simply say “This is fun, right!” She will go ahead and say something like “OMG, I am feeling completely SAVAGE right now!” *laughs* This sort of expression, it’s not something you’d normally use, right?! I am unable to take my eyes off of her whenever she is like that, I just can’t help it. Sometimes I’ll be completely baffled and I’ll have a hard composing myself but she is just so funny and cute.

No matter in what regard, Keiko-san is very stoic and strict with herself. Just being together with her will give you the feeling of wanting to stand up straighter and raise your head higher.
Supporting and balancing Kalafina as the middle part, she is a person of firm character and yet, she’s also very charming as a human being. There are many occasions where she will unexpectedly initiate a moment of skinship, for example, she will suddenly grab my hand. In these moments she is so sweet and loving that my chest will momentarily tighten up a little.
- “Hikaru’s Eye” from their Kadokawa issue
“Keiko holds together Kalafina’s chorus work with her deep tone. Her singing voice is bold, impressionable and rich, which can echo as grand as a vast field, or with a soft and warm connotation.”
