Ayumi Shibata is one of the more foremost members of the Hello! Project. She is a member of their most stable group, Melon Kinenbi, and is the most popular of the four. Shiba's been everywhere - in other H!P groups, in commercials - she even got a whole drama series named after her.
Shibata joined H!P in 2000 as a member of Melon Kinenbi. She gets the most lines in their songs and is always at the forefront of their videos and pictures. Because of her popularity, Shibata was shuffled into Tanpopo in 2002. They released one single and then went on "permanent hiatus" (aka, disbanded).
