↱ MASTERLIST OF HIGH SCHOOL/COLLEGE PASSING FACECLAIMS ↲
under the cut you will find, #177 faceclaims that can pass realistically as high schoolers and/or college students. i made this list because of three reasons: a) most of the lists i found were old and at least a good few years old so the ages are largely inaccurate b) and hence there have been more and more child stars that i feel that need to be added to this list c) and it’s about time we stopped playing ian, milo, holland, crystal, jack etc as high schoolers because let’s be honest rpc, they can’t. i love them too but let’s be real about their ages. most of them should have resources made already but almost all of them have videos etc that you can make resources out of.
please like/reblog if you found this helpful and if you have any more suggestions, feel free to message me! also i tried to keep the really overused fcs out of here but you’ll find a mix of underused, overused and neither fcs here.

A/N: I’ve been running, everyday, my whole life. Running from love, running for love. Running from them, running for them. Running from this life, running for my survival. Never stop, never turn around, because if you do, you will truly realize why you started running, why you tried so hard to escape. And that, you don’t want to know.
Hey, hey, it’s been a while~ Still not Kataomoi but a short and pretty insane OS, I randomly got inspired when I was listening to Escape, my favorite SKE song. I had such a great time writing it, I was very very inspired and I really hope you will like it! Sorry if I forgot to correct any grammar mistake.
I actually finished translating this quite long time ago, just forgot to post…
I know it’s late LOL 1 year passed since Vol.1 release, some part of interview may not be up-to-date. However, the content is still interesting. This time it’s Kanon, who already announced that this year election (2017) is her last. Without any warning to fans, unfortunately, she didn’t ranked this year. That’s sad, but I believe that Kanon will still be Kanon who is full of spirit as the same as in this interview.
Next time, it will be the last interview in Vol.1 (finally complete!!!) I will post it real soon.
Entered when she was 13 as the center of Team E
Now, Kimoto Kanon is already 18 years old
The youngest of team and the position under spotlight,
tasted the feeling of pain
We would never imagine that we will see her like this
Effort that is full of passion and steady aim have been
My goal is to be new ace, who can be both “conventional” and
“radical”. The one that Nagoya people can be proud of.
Value of experience from concurrency
- After interview with BUBKA in 2014, Kimoto-san is with us
again this time.
Non: such a long time.
- There were misunderstandings that Sashihara (Rino)-san brought
it up to tease you in concert…we are sorry for that.
Non: Hahaha Not at all. Don’t mind it. *laugh*
- Thank you! As we invited Kimoto-san for an interview this
time, it’s what we have been waiting for all along because you are in the same
level as ace.
Non: Eh? Thank you. But, really?
- Really! Kimoto-san, you have also faced with many tests up
until now. You gained so much valuable experience from them, right?
Non: That’s right. Until now, I have tried doing so many
things. If I don’t like challenges, I would be very worried. Now, they have
decided on national tour and stage play (AKB49). I need to concentrate to do it
well. This feels good. If there are things I have never done, I would want to
give it a shot. I’m that kind of person, very greedy. *laugh*
- Hahaha that’s alright *laugh* Talking about “challenge”,
being concurrent with HKT48 last year was a good motivation, right?
Non: Yeah. At first, I didn’t know what I should do. I never
thought I could be friend with everyone in HKT48 until now. So, I am happy that
everyone welcomed me.
- Especially, Motomura (Aoi)-san. You also named your
Non: She was the first one who came to talk to me. You can
say she saved me. Aoi blew away my loneliness and we got very close after that.
Aoi’s Oshi also told me “I really like this combination”. Because of
concurrency, I could meet her. And we went on tour as HKT48 members. Now, SKE48
tour will also resume. If we go to the place where I went when I was concurrent,
I will tell other SKE48 that “This place is like this”
- Audiences who went to see HKT48, did they come to see
Non: That’s the point! I think that is the meaning of
- The concurrency ended in 2015. For Kimoto-san and SKE48,
many things have changed in this 1 year.
Non: Many 1st gen seniors graduated. Now, we have Makki-chan
(Saito Makiko) as captain. 2nd, 3rd gen and also 4th gen must try harder. We
know well that what are used to be done by 1st gen must be done by us now.
- The time of forming each team, from the start until SKE48
established, was 1st gen to 4th gen.
Non: I think this is the boundary (between former and latter
gens) But the position between 4th gen and latter gens is quite subtle.
- I have read Kimoto-san’s latest blog. As members in the
same gen graduated one by one, it seems you need to do something to enhance
current 4th gen entity, like a mission.
Non: I think 4th gen is full of members who are independent.
Some may think this is not a good thing but I don’t think so. We always take
part in every matter. SKE48 needs this kind of members. Though we got
criticized many times, but we always feel that we need to do something. For
example, (Shibata) Aya-chan started to focus on talking, (Umemoto) Madoka
already graduated but she still works related to sports, (Yamashita) Yukari got
the first place in Request Hour 2 years in a row. Yukari is our pride.
Non: That’s because I’m happy. It was very tough for us at
the beginning. It came out badly for everything we do and we didn’t know what
we should do. We were in that situation for a long time. Friends at that time
went separately to each team. Some graduated, some are still active. Really, I
don’t even know why I’m happy that much.
The feeling of “I have to stay”
- This feeling, is it your current motivation?
Non: 4th gen right now is in the time of “thinking about
graduation” or “being unsure what to do next”. Some of us chose to graduate,
some chose to stay as SKE48 member. Like Madoka, she decided to graduate to do
what she wish to do. We, the same gen, are also glad for her. So, the ones
remaining would like to try in her part, too. We don’t want to hear they say
4th gen’s getting worse because of graduation.
- “We won’t let anyone look down on us!” right?
Non: Well, yeah *laugh* Once you are looked down, you will
be more encouraged. Your mental gets stronger. There are many members think
like this “You will see!”
- Kimoto-san also has this side *laugh*
Non: Feel strong, right? Actually, I am coward *laugh*
Normally, I think about things but I just don’t speak it up.
- What is it?
Non: My own thoughts. If I write it in my blog, everyone
would be like “Kanon gets all fired up again!” but for me, I always see idols
as someone who’s cute and shining. They shouldn’t show any strong feeling like
“I will not give up!” So, that’s why I became like that.
- Then, it resembles Watanabe Mayu.
Non: Yeah. In other words, it’s someone who doesn’t let
emotion influence herself, wants to be only the “idol” in her ideal.
- But I think Kimoto-san is still “conventional” somehow.
Non: Thank you. But I think walking in conventional way can
be faded easily. Though it’s important to have someone being like this, but you
can’t stay this way forever.
- Kimoto-san, you are also “radical” quite often. *laugh*
Non: Actually, I am the type that love to lighten the mood
in dressing room *laugh* I like watching comedy shows, such as, “Gakitsukai”
and “24-Jikan taikyu”. I even watched it before it gets
popular. In the past, there were not many dirty jokes like this. I really like
- Maybe, it’s because you have good foundation like this so
you are good at entertaining. Kimoto-san in “Magical radio” was also very
funny. It would be good if there’s more that kind of program.
Non: That’s true. I would love to do.
Not “everyone’s little sister” anymore
- Kimoto-san, this spring you will reach working age, right?
Non: Yeah, that’s bad *laugh* To be honest, I thought I
wouldn’t have been here by the time I graduate from high school.
- in SKE48?
Non: When I entered, I thought like that. But in the blink
of an eye, 6 years have passed. I feel “is it this fast?”
Non: Of course, there are. People also told me that I’m
changed. Though my basics remain the same - my determination like “I can do it
no matter what!”, it hasn’t changed – but my surroundings have certainly
changed, right? Before, I felt like I’m everyone’s little sister, I’m junior
but now I became senior…well, I’m quite worried about it!
- What’s the matter? *laugh*
Non: I want to get close with juniors but I don’t know how.
I really thought about it hard “is it be okay if I’m kind to them?” It was like
that for a long time but then, I realized that “If you want to talk to them,
just talk! If you don’t, then don’t!”
- You thought too much *laugh*
Non: Everyone calls me “junior” all along. Fans also see
that juniors are my rival. I got stressed out and tried to avoid it. But now, it’s
the time that I should already be a senior so I just “Arghh! So be it!” *laugh*
That’s why recently I got really close to everyone. Like (Goto) Rara and
Sugawara (Maya) who are in the same team, we always talk to each other.
- It seems that Kimoto-san’s changes from last year to this
year are related to (Matsui) Rena-san and Miyazawa (Sae)-san graduation.
Non: It really seems like that. In AKB48 Request Hour this
year, after rehearsal, (Matsui) Jurina-san asked members for dinner. That time,
everyone discussed how SKE48 should be doing from now on.
- I saw pictures on internet. That was also a hot topic
among fans. And what’s the conclusion?
Non: Well, we don’t like the way it is right now. We need
Nagoya to love us more. In Nagaya nowadays, there are many groups doing their
activities, right? Of course, we can feel those powers. So, we think that we
need to be Nagoya’s pride to the degree that we can walk on streets and
announce by ourselves that “We have theater stage, please come see us” We want
to thank to everyone supporting us. We want to try harder and not forget where
we came from. When we talked about “what we can do” everyone raised so many
opinions. Though we are in pinch, we still continue to do our best with solidarity.
This is SKE48. It’s the time that we need to be united!
- Kimoto-san, you get so fired up!
Non: Members are all fired up like this, too. When we are
united, things become great. In this point, no other groups can beat us. Even
AKB48 can’t do like this. I think we must be proud of it. When we and the fans
come together as one, there must be more new fans for sure. So, now we are
thinking of what can we do to draw more people to like us.
- You mean, you would enclose them with passion and draw
them to support, right?
Non: Yes. Anyways, Nogizaka46 is also rising now.
- They are skyrocketing. For Kimoto-san who loves idol, how
Non: They are really cute! So good-looking!
- Hahahaha I think you are also about the same, really.
Non: Not at all…in fact, the feeling they give out is
totally different from SKE48. The image of fighting with all our might, that’s
- This should be both weapon and charms of you guys.
Non: Right now, SKE48 is totally fired up. We need only a
chance to ignite. At the time like this, if we can attract people to look at
us, I think SKE48 will never end.
Pave the new way
- While you are thinking of SKE48, how do you think about
your own direction?
Non: I couldn’t rely only on my thought, yet when I was
thinking which way I will go; conventional (idol) or variety, I realized that I
can pave the new way in the middle of these two. I like varieties, I wouldn’t
let it slip if I get a chance. But there are also fans who likes conventional
part of me, that I also would like to keep. It is so complicated…so, I, Kimoto
Kanon, will pave my own way.
- You can see it clearly now.
Non: That’s right. Both goal that should be and place that I
am aim for.
- Can we expect to see Kimoto-san leading on conventional
way to the center position of SKE48?
Non: It depends on myself from now on. When the time I stand
at the center comes, I would like everyone to think “SKE48 can also be like
this” Of course, first, I have to be accepted by fans. I also
want attention to SKE48 to spread out more. That’s my true last goal.
- I can deeply feel the fire that burning in Kimoto-san’s
heart from interview today. Lastly, I would like to know how do you feel about
this coming general election.
Non: When I was confused that “does SKE48 still need me?”
Madoka told me “No matter what, Kanon is indispensable” since the one who has
always taken care of me said this, I decided to continue to do my best. My goal
is Undergirls. I will keep heading forward, continue on.
- We will wait for good news. Thank you so much.
you. For the sake of my gen and SKE48, I won’t back down!
