Blog update: “Tokyo closing day( ´・ω・`)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/30 blog update, titled “Tokyo closing day( ´・ω・`)“:

Good evening
It’s Maimi

The Tokyo performances of “CAT’SEYE”
~Thieves’ side story~
~Victims’ side story~

have finished

It was over in the blink of an eye
This time especially,
~Thieves’ side~ and ~Victims’ side~ changed every day,

and there were several parts in ~Thieves’ side~ where I had to change my outfit fast,

and I couldn’t be late

…So every time I was nervous and my heart was pounding

I performed with the same anxiety I had on opening day all the way to today

A typhoon made landfall at the same time as the closing day of the Tokyo performances…

But still, a lot of people came, so I was really happy

I wonder if everyone was able to return home safely…

I’m really worried…

Everyone who came in this bad weather, thank you so very, very much

Everyone who watched on USTREAM,
and then, everyone who supported us too, thank you from the bottom of my heart

There’s still the Osaka performances, so I don’t feel like “It’s finished” at all,

but when I saw the dressing room that we had used for about 10 days at Ikebukuro Sunshine Plaza completely empty,

I started to feel a little lonely

There are two weeks until the Osaka performances,

and I’m really happy that everyone in Osaka can also see “CAT’SEYE”,

and so that we can have the best closing day in Osaka,

I’ll make the best of these two weeks

That’s right
Yesterday and today,
Airi came to watch the performance


She had always been saying
“I want to see it“,

and she sent me e-mails cheering me on…

I was really happy


Well then,
lastly are some pictures taken during the Tokyo performances of “CAT’SEYE”…


Well then,
please be careful during the typhoon, and spend the day safely

Until tomorrow’s update…

Good night

Blog update: “Kindness(T^T)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/29 blog update, titled “Kindness(T^T)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

Yesterday was the DVD filming of the ~Thieves’ side story~ of the play “CAT’SEYE”

There was an after talk show yesterday too,

and everyone talked about their favorite scenes,
and which roles besides their’s they’d like to try playing

Continuing from yesterday, we greeted the winners backstage…

It was really fun

Thank you very much to everyone who came even though it was a weekend,

and everyone who sent us power

And then, finally today

It’s the last day of performances in Tokyo for the ~Victims’ side story~

Time has flown by too quickly…

There are three performances today,

and I have an announcement for everyone here


Today’s third performance,

the one at 5:30PM

and tomorrow’s ~Thieves’ side story~
performance at 3:00PM~

will be broadcast live on USTREAM

I think there are a lot of people who can’t come because they live far away or because of other circumstances,

so please be absolutely sure to check out the live broadcast

Well then, here’s some pictures from the dressing room~


The goods this time
“CAT’SEYE” t-shirt

Our costumer was wearing this t-shirt,

but her t-shirt had a kitty ribbon attached to it

When I saw that I said
“Ah That’s cute(*^.^*)”,

and she said “Do you want me to attach one to your’s“…ヾ(^▽^)ノ

“Eh Is it alright Yay(^O^)

“Alright, since you’re Hitomi… I’ll make it blue
(Because Hitomi’s color is blue)

…I’m really happy~(〃▽〃)


(2) It’s like this

Thank you very much

And then, something nice happened this morning

I arrived at the station where we were to meet, but I didn’t know the exit to get to the meeting place,

and I thought “Where is this~(+_+)”

while wandering around, and I arrived at the wrong exit…



I won’t be able to leave, but I’ll explain it to a staff member,

and I’ll enter the ticket gate again and find the meeting exit while properly looking at the information board

I thought and passed through the gate again

An old man who worked there called out to me,

“Do you know where you’re going

Surely he noticed me wandering around,

and was worried “Is this girl okay“, I think

He was smiling kindly,

and when I said “Ah I want to go to the 〇〇 exit…(^^;;

he responded “The 〇〇 exit is on the opposite side Go left on this road, and take another left at the traffic light and you’ll arrive

If you go in through this gate, you won’t be able to reach the exit, so I’ll cancel it

…He was a god

What a kind person~

I was grateful to that attendant, and I was able to reach the meeting place without any trouble

Thank you so very much, attendant

I felt the kindness of people this morning,
so it seems like it’ll become a wonderful day

I’ll do my best today

Have a wonderful day everyone…

I’m o~ff


Blog update: “Graffiti φ(._.)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/28 blog update, titled “Graffiti φ(._.)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

Yesterday was the DVD recording for the ~Victims’ side story~ of “CAT’SEYE”

Continuing from several days ago,
Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan and Natsuyaki Miyabi-chan came and watched

I was surprised when I met the two of them(゜o゜)/

Both of them had dyed their hair


It seems Chinami darkened her hair a little bit

It’s hard to see in the picture, but Miya dyed her hair three colors, and it’s really stylish

Chinami gave us dried plum

Miya gave us french toast, potato bread… An assortment of breads….

Thank you both very much

And then, at yesterday’s performance, there was an after talk show, and we talked to 5 people chosen by lottery backstage

I was really happy that we could hear their impression about the play

Today is the DVD filming for ~Thieves’ side story~,
and then an after talk show

I’ll go fired up(*`・∀・´)ノ

A picture I took the day before yesterday…(2 “before”)

On the way home yesterday,

Okay Okayφ(・~・)

I tried drawing on it


(3 “after”)

CAT’S Kuma-san
(Berryz Koubou: Kumai Yurina-chan)
CAT’S Maimi~

And then, I wrote about curvy dance in yesterday’s blog…

We did it like usual in the dressing room yesterday,

but yesterday we even did Billy’s Boot Camp in addition( ̄□ ̄;)!!

It gets harder day by day…(゜o゜; lol

It’s my first time doing Billy’s Boot Camp

I’ve heard that you can lose considerable weight…(°∇°;)

I started sweating about 10 minutes after starting…

Yeah It seems effective

Though… I’ve been eating as many treats…


But, I’m happy every day because I’m eating a lot of delicious things

Well then, I hope everyone has a really wonderful day today…

Take care, everyone

I’m off too

Blog update: “Backstage…(~ ▽~@) ♪♪♪”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/27 blog update, titled “Backstage…(~ ▽~@) ♪♪♪“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

I had a recording for the self-cover best album to be released in November

“They arranged this song to sound like this, huh

I was surprised

When it comes out, everyone please be sure to check it out

we had performances of the ~Thieves’ side story~ of the play “CAT’SEYE”

Takahashi Ai-san came and watched


It felt like it’s been a really long time since we’ve met, so I was happy

Thank you so much for coming even though you’re busy

And then, happy birthday again

Speaking of bithdays

The opening day of “CAT’SEYE” was the birthday of my costar “Kawahara Maki-san”

I intruded on Maki-san and Hiruta Machi-san’s dressing room, and took a picture with them~ε=┌( ・_・)┘


I’m being eaten by Maki-san~Σ( ̄□ ̄)! lol

And then, and then
The CAT’S EYE Seven dressing room…

Everyone was seriously doing curvy dance (lol)

Though we were all serious,

it was a really funny scene…

The costume designer was surprised when they entered the room(^_^;)

Berryz Koubou’s Kumai Yurina-chan… She was drenched in sweat before the performance,

so she wiped off her sweat with tissues~σ(^_^;)?

I uploaded a picture of everyone’s seriousness in the special “CAT’SEYE” blog,

so please be sure to check it out

Lastly, the ice cream Mai-chan brought for everyone~


I’ve only gotten treats from everyone(>~<;)

I’ve gotta bring in something for everyone

Today is the DVD filming for “CAT’S EYE” ~Victims’ side story~

In the blink of an eye,
today is the 6th day of “CAT’SEYE”…

Each and every time, I’m nervous and fired up for the performance

With my feelings of gratitude for everyone who is coming to watch and everyone who is supporting us,

I’ll do my best with everyone to put on a wonderful play today too~

Well then, I’m o~ff

Maimi Sightings for September 26th

Morning Musume’s leader Michishige Sayumi uploaded this 2-shot with Maimi in an update on her official blog. Sayu added that Maimi is cute and nice, and there’s a lot of parts about her she respects.

“CAT’S EYE” B-pattern writer/director and frequent Hello! Project collaborator Shioda Taizo uploaded these behind-the-scenes photos featuring Maimi in an update on his official blog.

Check out blog!project for full translations of the other ℃-ute and Hello! Project members’ blog updates.

Blog update: “I’m sweating(  ̄ー+ ̄)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/26 update on the “CAT’S EYE” A-pattern blog, titled “I’m sweating(  ̄ー+ ̄)“:

It’s Maimi☆

I felt like updating, so I’m updating(^o^)

It seems like a typhoon is approaching…(・ー・;)

It reminds me of last year’s GekiHaro “Sengoku Jieitai”……

Surely it’ll hit during the day of performances like last year…(>~<;)

Those who plan to come during the day the typhoon hits, please make your safety the most important thing m(__)m

Now then, in the "CAT'S EYE Seven" dressing room,

"One, two, one, two…"♪

Everyone is doing curvy dance♪(*’-')

Whenever we have plays, we received a lot of treats,
so we eat a lot against our better judgement(゜Д゜;)

It's our strategy to move as much as we ate o(^o^)o

Everyone is seriously facing the mirror p(*`・∀・´)q

It feels like it takes a long time when I do curvy dance at home by myself, but it goes by fast when I do it with everyone else☆

CAT'S EYE Seven will do our best today too o(^o^)o

I'm o~ff♪

Blog update: “Yellow, yellow, yellow…Σ( 〇ロ〇;)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/26 blog update, titled “Yellow, yellow, yellow…Σ( 〇ロ〇;)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

Four days have passed in the blink of an eye since the beginning of the play “CAT’SEYE”

It’s fast

Yesterday was performances of the B-pattern,
~Victims’ side story~

Everyone who came after work and school was over and everyone who supported us, thank you

Today’s picture is

with Hagi-chan


In the play, she plays “Kisugi Ai”,

the younger sister of my character “Kisugi Hitomi”

She’s really cute like a younger sister

Ah That’s right

In the assortment of confections we received as treats,

there were the gummi bears called “HARIBO”

Inside the larger bag,
there were countless smaller bags of gummi bears,

and I properly plucked one out from there

“Now then Let’s eat” I thought, and when I opened the bag……

Yellow again
Yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow…

There’s so many yellow~~~~\(°∇°;)

Instinctively, I wanted to make a quip

In the end, seven out of the nine gummi bears were yellow

Was that yesterday’s lucky color

Oh well
I love lemon flavor
So it’s alright

By the way, the remaining two were both orange (lol)


And then, today is performances of the ~Thieves’ side story~ of the play

I’ll go fired up today too

Well then, lastly, the picture of my house’s heart burglar, which I couldn’t upload yesterday

Cologne-chan’s sleeping face…


Let’s do our best today

The live video for “Aitai Aitai Aitai na”‘s coupling song,
“Kanashiki Heaven”,

has been uploaded to the ℃-ute channel on YouTube,
so please be sure to check it out everyone

Blog update: “DOG EYE(・∀・)σ”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/25 blog update, titled “Dog Eye(・∀・)σ“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

Recently, it’s become chilly…

It’s completely autumn already

It’s cool when I go outside of a walk, so it feels good…( ´∀`)

As expected, I love autumn…

We had performances of the play “CAT’SEYE” again yesterday…

And Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan
and Natsuyaki Miyabi-chan
came to watch

In addition, they gave us creme puffs and cheese cake


The thing that I’m carrying in my hand…
That’s cheese cake

I ate it immediately though…

It was delicious~(^-^)
Thank you for coming to watch

Thank you also to everyone who came despite being a weekend,

and then everyone who supported us

And then, and then

She’s nestled tightly next to me again today(〃▽〃)

My pet dog Cologne-chan

I wonder if my doggies are nestling next to me because they’re cold too…(・o・)?


Since she was cute,

instead of “CAT’S EYE”,
I couldn’t resist trying to take a picture of “DOG EYE”(lol)


She looks sleepy…(´ω`)

Afterwards, I perfectly took pictures of Cologne’s sleeping face…

But unfortunately I can’t attach more than 3 pictures to the blog

I’ll attach them another day~(‘-^*)

Well then, I’ll do my best today too

I’m o~ff

I’m drinking fresh banana juice right now…

I think the same thing every time I drink it

“It’s too delicious°・(ノД`)・°・ Don’t run out~~(>_<)

It’ll be gone in around 3 more gulps…

I’ll drink it and savor the taste (lol)

Blog update: “Yesterday( ´∀`)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/24 blog update, titled “Yesterday( ´∀`)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

The opening day for the
~Victims’ side story~
of the play “CAT’SEYE”

arrived yesterday without any problems

There was also a press conference yesterday,

and what
Anri-san, who sang the theme song for the anime version of “CAT’S EYE”, stopped by

Anri-san watched the play’s general probe (←The full rehearsal before the performances start),

she gave us a lot of her impressions

“Though it was made 30 years ago, ‘CAT’S EYE’ has always beenloved. So that it continues to be loved, I hope you girls will connect it to the next generation…”

She told us

I became even more fired up(`・∀・´)

So that it becomes a play that will remain in the hearts of those who are familiar with the original work and those who are from a different generation,

everyone will do their best today too

I’m really glad she came even though she was busy

Thank you very much

Well then, here are yesterday’s pictures…★

The theater troupe “Otona no Mugicha”‘s hand towel

It was given to me by the writer and director of the ~Victims’ side~ version, Shioda Taizo-san

And then, on top of that hand towel is a kitty cat crest

This was made by our co-star,
Nakagami Kazuyasu(゜o゜)

It seems he made it with the theme of “CAT’SEYE”…

It’s too amazing

I wonder if he made it using something like clay…

I haven’t had the chance to touch clay since I was an elementary school student though

I’m so bad at making things with clay that it’s shocking…

Therefore, I respect someone who can make something like this

Thank you for the cute crest


With Berryz Koubou’s Sudou Maasa-chan

Maasa’s role is “Kisugi Rui”,

who is my role “Kisugi Hitomi”‘s older sister

Though Maasa is younger than me in reality, she really has a sense of security like an older sister

Yesterday, I couldn’t get my boots on, and while I was trying I became the only person in the dressing room

“Dang it I’m the last” I thought, and when I went to leave the dressing room,

Maasa had the door open and was waiting for me…

“Eh…(つд`) Maasa… You were waiting for me

“Yeah It’s alright” she said…


Yaji was really happy

Last is a picture with Berryz Koubou’s Kumai Yurina-chan

Speaking of Kumai-chan, she’s an “airhead”

I’ll reveal a little bit

Yesterday, when everyone was changing after the performances…

“Ah I put it on backwards(〃~〃)” she said…

I immediately looked over, and started laughing without thinking(lol)

Kumai-chan wears a black tank top under a red shirt as part of her costume,

and the tag that should’ve been on her back was under her face…(lol)

As expected of Kumai-chan…

She calmed me down yesterday

Well then

Today I have a recording for our self-cover album, which will be released in November,

and performances of “CAT’SEYE”
~Thieves’ side~

I’ll go fired up today too

I’m o~ff


Right now, I’m sitting on the sofa typing this blog, my pet dog Cologne is sleeping tightly next to me(*´д`*) Aww

They’re cute today too My household’s dogs

Blog update: “Curtains raised!!! ヽ(´ー`) ノ”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/23 update on the “CAT’S EYE” A-version blog, titled “Curtains raised!!! ヽ(´ー`) ノ“:

It’s Yajima Maimi★

~Thieves’ side story~ and
~Victims’ side story~

Both opening days finished without any problems(*´д`*)

I was nervous and fidgety before the performance,

but I’m relieved we were able to start the plays without incident like this(´ー`)=3

We’re doing 2 plays at the same time!!
I haven’t done anything like this until now,
so I’m more nervous than ever!!(゜-゜;)

Though, this nervous feeling is probably tied together to ability to concentrate☆

Each day feels like it’s over quickly(*~▽~)

Today was the “victims’ side” performances, and when it’s not my turn to appear, I get drawn into everyone’s acting!!

In the practice hall too, it was always heartrending to watch…(/_・、)

And then, tomorrow is

~Thieve’s side story~,

and when I think about tomorrow, my heart starts pounding again,

but so that it’s even better than opening day, everyone will combine their power and we’ll do our best p(・∀・)q


I’m also looking forward to collaborating with everyone in the audience (lol)

It’s a weekday…(^^;;

But I’m waiting for a lot of attendees!!

Well then, I’ll do my best tomorrow too(^-^)

Good night…☆ミ

Blog update: “Given power(^^)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/23 blog update, titled “Given power(^^)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

Yesterday was the opening day of the play “CAT’SEYE”


Everyone’s comments of support and their impressions…

Thank you so very much

I was nervous,
so everyone’s support really became my power

I felt touched while reading the comments…

There were two performances yesterday,

and I was nervous the enti~re time, so it was over before I knew it

The day was over in the blink of an eye like that

Everyone who came and watched, thank you very much

So that I can fix the points I need to reconsider and work on,

and so that I can gradually become better by closing day, I’ll do my best

Well then, here’s a scene from yesterday’s dressing room


When I walked into the dressing room… What the(・o・)

Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki-chan and Risako-chan and Nacky aren’t here…(・・?

“Huh Where’d everyone go…(゜o゜)”

“Everyone is here Look, there
Berryz Koubou’s Sudou Maasa said, and where she was pointing…

“We’re here~~
…those three said……

“(゜o゜)/ What’re you doing

“18, 19, 20 Whew I’m exhaused…… We’re working our abs right now……”

Apparently, they had been dividing the exercises into sets and doing them


Next to them…


Hagi-chan said while posing (lol)


“Huh… I’m trying to appeal to you with my muscles (lol)(Flex)”

“Hagi-chan… Even though you’re flexing… Your arm is too thin…

Hagi-chan was really cute


Last is a 2-shot with Saki, who plays “Asatani”

We battled it out on stage,

but we got along well and had fun in the dressing room

Today is the opening day of the B-pattern of “CAT’SEYE”

I’ll change my feelings, and do my best today

I’m o~ff

Blog update: “‘CAT’S EYE’ opening day”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/22 blog update, titled “CAT’SEYE’ opening day“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

The day has finally arrived

The play “CAT’SEYE” starts today

Yesterday, we had a dress rehearsal at the venue

Amongst the performance’s set,
the performance’s lighting,
and the performance’s music…

we went over a variety of things

And then, we’ll have our last rehearsal today before the performance

During this rehearsal,

everything I’ve been told up to now,
my own problems,
changing outfits quickly, and so on……

I hope I can clear my various goals,

so that I can have confidence and give a splendid performance as Hitomi… I feel

My heart is already pounding
Everyone, please give Yaji power(>_<)

I have no choice but to do my best

I’ll make a wonderful play with everyone

★Today’s pictures★

(1) I ate grapes that we were given first thing in the morning, and they were so delicious, so delicious…

Everyone gathered around the grapes

By the way, the picture is Berryz Koubou’s Sugaya Risako-chan and Mai

I was worried because once I started eating them, I couldn’t stop (lol)


During her free time, Nacky went and bought pretzels for everyone…(T_T)

What!? This kindness…

She came back holding onto a big bag…(T^T)

Nacky, thank you so much

The pretzels were really, really delicious

Thank you for the treat

Blog update: “Caution overhead(+_+)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/21 blog update, titled “Caution overhead(+_+)“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi

The play “CAT’SEYE” finally starts tomorrow

My heart is pounding

Yesterday we had a dress rehearsal for the B-version (the story of the victims)

I worked my hardest with power from the meal my mom cooked for me

Thanks, mother

And then, we have the dress rehearsal for the A-version (the story of the thieves) today

The play starts with the A-version

I need to concentrate and work hard so that we have a good opening day

That’s right
After I updated the blog yesterday…

A lot of people wrote in the comments

“Did anything good happen“…

Something good…

Rather, I suffered a misfortune…

I arrived at the dressing room early yesterday, and since there was time remaining until the dress rehearsal,

Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki-chan and Sugaya Risako-chan

and Mai and myself

played the card game “Old Maid”

Saki was the first winner
Risako was second

It become a one-on-one battle between Mai and myself…

When I pulled a card from Mai…

I made a pair(☆▽☆ )

“I did it~~~ヽ(≧▽≦)/ I’m finished~

I was so overjoyed,
I reflexively stood up and cheered…


I hit the back of my hand on a shelf above my head with all my might(-"-;)Ouch……

Everyone laughed saying "You're even delighted at full power…(^^;)"…(〃~〃)

Blog update: “Wandering~ヾ( ´ω`=´ω`) ノ”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/20 blog update, titled “Wandering~ヾ( ´ω`=´ω`) ノ“:

Good morning
It’s Maimi


I bought a new notebook for 2013


I had a recording for the FM-PORT program “℃-ute Yajima Maimi no I My MeMaimi~”

we went over the action scenes for the play beginning in 2 days,

Up until then, I had a lot of free time, so I wandered around the city~

During that time, I bought the notebook

It’s already the season for buying next year’s notebook~

It’s fast~

I also saw a movie by myself for the first time in awhile

The movie I saw was…
“Himitsu no Akko-chan”

Though I was alone, I laughed a lot

The story’s message is wonderful
I liked how it ended too

Even now I’m still caught up in it

I’m glad I went to see it

It’s a heart-warming story, so I really recommend it to everyone

When I returned home,

I received a souvenir from my brother who went to Hawaii

A pink-beige wristwatch〓

In addition, it’s a different colored set with my mom

I’m really happy

I’ll use it at once today

I’ll treasure it

Well then, I’ll do my best cheerfully today


I ate grapes yesterday…
Two were stuck together, so it looked a little like a distorted heart shape (lol)

I saw something rare~
Something good will probably happen(*’v’)

Blog update: “Fore fore…(‘ ε’*)”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 9/19 blog update, titled “Fore fore…(‘ ε’*)“:

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

(A unit consisting of Natsuyaki Miyabi and Tokunaga Chinami from Berryz Koubou,
myself and Nakajima Saki from ℃-ute,
and Iikubo Haruna from Morning Musume)

had a filming for the “Fore Fore” music video all day

The music video matches up with the story from the song’s lyrics,

so we filmed in the city (1),
and a liberatingly huge park(2)

It rained on and off yesterday…

It was a showdown between myself, the rain girl, and the two sunny girls from Berryz Koubou (lol)

There were scenes were we were told
“We’ll be on standby until the rain stops“,

and once it stopped, the weather was so nice I started to sweat…

At any rate, I’m glad we were able to finish the filming without any trouble~

It’s the first time the five of us have had a music video filming together,

and when it wasn’t our turn, we played on the playground equipment in the park…

The filming progressed harmoniously and was fun


Ah That’s right
There was a small boy we saw at the park’s playground equipment,

and he had stopped in front of the playground equipment’s swaying bridge,

and said
“It’s sca~ry(>_<)"

Below the playground equipment,
his mother and father were watching over him and said “It’s okay, it’s not scary

Then, a girl who was around 5-years-old came from behind him,
grabbed ahold of his hand tightly, and slowly crossed the bridge with him

After he had crossed it,
that boy yelled “I did it~” while smiling

His mother and father said
“Amazing You overcame it~“…

Seeing that warmed my heart

…And I remember hating the playground equipment when I was that same age

The athletic club I often went to when I was small had similar playground equipment,

and though I was able to proceed smoothly through the equipment until I reached the bridge, I was never able to take even one step onto it…

My dad would cross with me at that time,

but we advanced so slowly that it felt like the sun was going to set before we got across

My brothers would also purposely run across the bridge and cause it to shake,

so I’d often yell “Stop it” and start crying(lol)

It’s nostalgic…

I wonder what the finished music video will be like

Everyone, please be sure to check it out

Well then,
I have an announcement for today

At 1:20AM~
℃-ute will appear on HTB’s “Enpuro”

Everyone, please be sure to check that out also

Well then, let’s have a wonderful afternoon too

Until tomorrow’s update~
