Blog update: “Fumbled…°・( ノД`)・°・”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s 1/21 update, titled “Fumbled…°・( ノД`)・°・“:

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

Today’s weather is nice and warm( ´∀`)

However, there’s still some snow from several days ago around my house( ´艸`)

Yesterday we had Hello! Project concerts in Nagoya

Everyone who came
Everyone who cheered for us even though they couldn’t participate
Thank you very much

Everyone always gathers about 10 minutes before the concert to get fired-up,

and when I arrived at stand-by too early, Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki-chan and Mano Erina-chan were already there(゜o゜)/

Both of them get ready quickly

Yesterday’s concert was really fun too…

But… I made an unthinkable mistake yesterday

During the current concert, we perform “Kono Machi”, our new song going on sale February 6th,

and during “Kono Machi” there are spoken lines,

and the contents of those lines changes depending on where we’re performing

The original line is
“The cafe where I often had lunch with my friends”…

Yesterday, in Nagoya,
the plan was to say
“The cafe where I often had kishimen with my friends”…

(↑”Eating kishimen at a cafe( ̄◇ ̄;)”… Don’t ask me f(^^;)…)

At the performance…
The interlude got closer,

and the words that came out of my mouth were……

“The casse where I often had kisomen with my friends”……



Something different than was what in my head came out on its own

This is… what’s called “fumbling”…

As soon as we got backstage,

I said to Nacky

“I fumbled over my words~(>_<。)“…

And she replied

“Right~ What were you saying(゜o゜;) Saki heard and thought ‘Right Right‘, but then I was like


‘HUH?? Σ(°◇°?)’“…

Surely everyone in the audience reacted like that too O(><;)(;><)O

It was the long-awaited Nagoya version

I’m sorry

I have to practice my lines so I can say them perfectly next week in Osaka…(´□`)

That’s right
In addition to the concert in Osaka next week,

℃-ute will appear at the “Yamada Denki consumer electronics fair 2013 & flea market in Kyocera Dome Osaka”
on the 27th

Those who have the time, please be sure to come and hang out

And then,

it’s been decided that I will appear in the play

I appeared on stage with Hata-gumi for the first time in 2010 during the play “Ran”,

and I was really happy I could appear on stage with them again during the 2011 revival

Though… I’m really, really nervous

Actually, when I was first told about “Ran”,

I went to study a Hata-gumi play

That play was “Taklimakan”

I remember there was a really painful scene that made my chest tighten~(>_<。)

That the day would come when I’d star in that “Taklimakan”…

So that it becomes a play that remains in everyone’s heart, I will do my best with everyone in Hata-gumi

Please be sure to come and see it

Well then, I’ll do my best today too

Until tomorrow~~

Bonus pictures

We were given something like this as treats yesterday

I was surprised by how delicious it was(゜o゜)/

With Airi-san

She’s behind me right now too (lol)
