Blog update: “Motivation(‘∇’ )”

Here’s the translation for Maimi’s March 30th update, titled “Motivation(‘∇’ )“:

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi


we appeared as guest judges at the performance contest

“Heart Beat Festa ~Anata no Kenketsu de, Dareka ga Egao ni.~”


The concept of the event was to encourage more young people to donate blood,
since the amount of people in their teens and 20s donating blood has gone down

There are people who can be saved with our blood donations

I passed by a blood donation site earlier when I had time between jobs,

and I thought “I’ll donate

When I got closer, I thought
“Hold on…!? How long does it take to donate …Huh… If I donated now, would I be able to make my next job in time

So I left without donating…

Though, I learned a variety of things about donating blood at yesterday’s contest, and it made me think

“Next time I’ll pitch in and donate too

Everyone, if you have the chance, please be sure to participate in a blood drive

I hope it brings smiles to as many people as possible


And then,
at the contest we watched the performances of 12 groups who had advanced to the final judging

Groups dancing while using a video…
Groups tap dancing in geta…

There were a wide variety of performances, so it was really fun

Seeing the performances of people in the same generation as me, I thought

“They’ve practiced a lot for the sake of today’s performance“,

and it was really, really motivating

The grand prize winners were
Saitama-sakae High School’s

and they gave an impactful performance with a lot of members

Congratulations on your victory

But each performance was really wonderful, so judging was considerably difficult

After the winner was announced,
I saw the bitter smiles of the other groups,

and it made me think “When you work hard at something, your frustration when you fail is big too

Though it’s unfortunate they couldn’t win, they looked really cool

People who are working hard for something really sparkle

Everyone who participated, thank you for all your hard work

And then, we performed the 4 songs

1. Crazy Kanzen na Otona (←Our new song coming out on April 3rd)

2. Kanashiki Heaven

3. Momoiro Sparkling

4. Dance de Bakoon!

Everyone’s performances gave us a lot of power,

so with the feeling of
“We can’t lose(・∀・´)”,

we had fun performing

Surely there were people who saw ℃-ute for the first time, and I hope all of them have become interested in ℃-ute…

At the handshake event too,
there were really a lot of people who said “Pleased to meet you”(゜o゜)/

℃-ute will work hard so that the ranks of team ℃-ute grow more and more

Ah That’s right

Chisato brought us gratin she made

Doesn’t it look delicious~

Ah It truly was really, really delicious°・(ノД`)・°・

Yaji loves gratin~

I was so happy, I was like munch, munch, munch, munch… My spoon wouldn’t stop…(°∇°;)

It was delicious, Chisato


And then, we received Starbucks as a treat

Caramel frappuccino
It was as delicious as alwaysヽ(≧▽≦)/
Thanks for the treat, staff


Well then
I hope wonderful things are waiting for everyone in the afternoon too…

Until tomorrow~(^-^)
