Plenty of non-fans are totally impressed by Tsuki‘s performance skills and are ready to join her fandom. Many netizens say that instead of idols who always show stiff expressions, they find watching someone with the ability to diversify expressions and a charming stage presence like Tsuki much more enjoyable. However, there are still some netizens who claim Tsuki’s expressions look forced and too “cartoonish”. 

  • I like her expressions. She is so full of energy, which suits the vibe of the song. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen an idol with such good use of facial expressions, I can feel her energy while watching it. 
  • I’m not a fan nor know anything about this group, but I can see that she is a main dancer!
  • Why do I feel uncomfortable? She’s overdoing it so it doesn’t look natural. 
  • I can see why it goes viral but she doesn’t look very natural.
  • I’m not a fan but she is charming. She controls her expressions so well. I like idols with good expressions on stage.
  • Her expressions are different in each verse, better than those with only one expression the entire performance.
