Regular readers of this site have probably noticed that the updates have slowed to a halt recently. I haven’t lost my passion for Maimi or translating, but rather have found myself strapped for time as I transition to working in Japan. I’m currently in intensive training which requires I spend my time after work preparing for the next day, so I’ve been struggling to put aside time to translate. I won’t be training forever though, so I hope to get back to a daily schedule before too long. I’ll try to catch up as much as I can this weekend, but I might have to jump ahead to her current updates depending on how long that takes. At any rate, thank you for continuing to support Maimi and I hope you’ll continue to visit here to read about her!
Maimi takes a long trip down memory lane while in Yamanashi for the NaruChika concerts in her May 3rd update “It’s better to blow on it like this then eat ε-(´∀｀)lol“. Full translation below.
Preorder has started on the e-LineUP! website for a “Special Making DVD” that serves as companion to Maimi’s recently released book “Yajimap Sweets Sugyou no Tabi”. The book is a compilation of her articles by the same name that were published in UTB and showed Maimi travelling various places and learning about sweets. The “Special Making DVD”, a digest of which has been uploaded to ℃-ute’s YouTube channel, gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the articles. The preorder period will be from May 1st to May 20th at 11:59PM, and the DVD is schedule to ship towards the end of June. For fans living overseas, the DVD can be ordered using Tenso, which is a service I have used a lot and strongly recommend.
