Blog update: “Fired up!!( ノ`△´) ノ”

Maimi reflects on the 7th anniversary of ℃-ute’s first single “Maasara Blue Jeans”, shows her support to Berryz Koubou aiming to take the next step, and gets excited for a return to Sendai in her May 6th update titled “Fired up( ノ`△´) ノ“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

The weather is so nice

Yesterday we had the release commemoration polaroid event for our new single
“Crazy Kanzen na Otona”


Those who participated in the event were those who bought the “Crazy Kanzen na Otona” box set which included every version of the CD…

Thank you so very much

I got to take a picture with everyone, so I was rea~lly happy


I’m really grateful to everyone who couldn’t participate but who always support us as well

Several people said it to me yesterday,
but today is the 7th anniversary of the release of ℃-ute’s first single in our indie days,

“Massara Blue Jeans”(T^T)

7 years……

It’s so moving

I remember the recording being a struggle,

and during the filming of the music video, I was perplexed and didn’t know how I should do things…

Back then, we performed the song a lot as an opening act, at shopping malls in various places, etc. with the hope that people would learn about us,

so I have a lo~t of memories


I never want to forget my initial resolution(・∀・´)

Airi wrote about it in her blog earlier, but ℃-ute and our manager got together and talked about a variety of things…

I read Berryz Koubou’s captain Shimizu Saki-chan’s declaration on her blog,

and the two of us e-mailed each other,

and like Chisato and Berryz Koubou’s Natsuyaki Miyabi-chan’s blog updates where they wrote their feelings,

right now, Berikyuu (Berryz Koubou x ℃-ute) are synergized and both really, really fired up(・∀・´)

Having a dream is a wonderful thing

We become hot like this Our bonds are strengthened…
Again the feeling of gratitude is born…

Berryz Koubou’s dream of Budoukan…

℃-ute a~lways dreamt of Budoukan,

so since they’re our friends who joined Hello! Project in the same generation,

I want our dreams to come true together

Honestly, when we first read of Berryz Koubou’s determination, we became flustered…

But I think it’s really good that we felt like that.

When we became flustered, everyone talked about how we won’t lose sight of what it means to be ℃-ute,

how our feelings of “We won’t lose to any group” are strengthened, and how we will go and raise our skill level

℃-ute will give everything we have for our dreams

I was really happy when the Berryz Koubou members said
“Congratulations on Budoukan” and “I want to go see ℃-ute’s Budoukan performance

Therefore, even though they’re ℃-ute’s rivals, I will support them

Let’s achieve your dream of performing at Budoukan

When that happens, ℃-ute will absolutely go to watch

Oh my…


I became a hot, hot Yaji-san again today…(^~^;)


There’s another reason Yaji has gotten this fired up today…

Today we’re having a ℃-ute concert in Sendai for the first time in awhile

When I heard that we’d be going to Sendai on this tour, I was really happy

We haven’t been able to have a concert there since the last time 3 years ago, so I’ve been really, really looking forward to meeting all of team ℃-ute in Sendai(つд`)

I’m sorry we haven’t been able to go there until now

There are still a lot of places ℃-ute hasn’t been able to go to, and having events and concerts in all of the 47 prefectures is one of ℃-ute’s dreams…

So everyone, somehow or another, please wait for us

This dream will definitely come true~(`・ロ・´)


Since we haven’t been able to go to Sendai in awhile,
there are probably a lot of people who we haven’t met, and who we haven’t met in a long time,

so I want to put on a concert that make those people think
“I want to keep cheering for ℃-ute forever

Thank you to those who are going to Sendai from far away to participate as well

Let’s have a wonderful time together


Well then, it’s the last day of Golden Week

I hope everyone enjoys the day with a smile…\


The deadline for preordering the special DVD which contains making-of footage of “My Museum” (←on sale May 27th) on e-LineUP!

In addition

My comments on Nakashima Shigeo-san
and Matsui Hideki-san receiving the People’s Honor Award

were printed in an article in the Sports Nippon newspaper today

My household are all Giants fans, so we went to the Tokyo Dome to watch a game countless times when I was a child

The awards ceremony was held at Tokyo Dome

I couldn’t watch it in realtime yesterday,

but when I saw it on a variety show this morning, and Nagashima-san stepped up to the plate and Matsui-san threw a ball, I was moved.

My brothers and I received a lot of passion and dreams from baseball

With all of my gratitude to Nagashima-san and Matsui-san…

Congratulations on the People’s Honor Award
