Introduction :

Ono Haruna, the eldest among the girls, and also the leader of the group. Initially she had a passion for dancing and dreamed of becoming a dancer, but things changed when she met her co-members in school. Eventually she took on a rock n’ roll path with SCANDAL. But the influence of dance stayed, and it’s also the reason why in some of their PVs, some simple dance choreography can be seen. Haruna has the deepest and most powerful voice among the girls.
