Maimi joins new unit “DIY♡”
According to an article posted on the BARKS website, Maimi will be joining fellow C-ute member Nakajima Saki, Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami and Natsuyaki Miyabi, and Morning Musume’s Iikubo Haruna to form a new unit named “DIY♡”, which will be part of the “SATOYAMA movement” project tied-in with the Hello! Project weekly program “Hello! SATOYAMA Life”. The article notes that the initials that make up the unit’s name commonly stand for “Do it Yourself”, but this time carries the meaning of “Dance in Your Heart”. DIY♡’s first performance will be at the summer Hello! Project concerts this weekend, and they will perform the song “Fore Fore ~Forest For Rest~”.
