As I’m sure many of you heard by now, Japan was devestated by a magnitude 8.8 earthquake, it’s largest ever in recorded history, today. I’m not a journalist by any means, just a nerd who writes a silly fanblog, so I urge you to check with your country’s news sites for more information on the disaster.
Naturally, as fans of Maimi, ℃-ute, and Hello! Project, our concern extends to the girls that we celebrate and cheer for every day. Thankfully, the ℃-ute staff has confirmed both on Twitter and on the official ℃-ute blog that all the ℃-ute members are safe, and asked everyone not to worry.
Understandably, there was no blog or Serend updates from Maimi today, and as such there will be no Daily Maimi today. I want to urge everyone to offer as much support as you can to those affected by this tragedy, whether it be monetary, through volunteering, or through prayers. It’s hard to be positive after a shocking event like this, but let’s be thankful that those we know of are safe and hope for everyone’s continued safety.
