Blog update: “℃-ute 8th anniversary(T^T)”

Maimi takes the opportunity to look back at how her life changed on the anniversary of ℃-ute’s formation in her June 11th update titled “℃-ute 8th anniversary(T^T)“. Full translation below.

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

June 11th

Today is the 8th anniversary of ℃-ute’s formation

Eight years, huh…

I remember it…
Eight years ago today…

It was announced at Abe Natsumi-san’s tour that those of us who had been Hello! Project Kids until then would be called “℃-ute”…

Since that day, a lot of things about me have changed.

The days when I was anxious and couldn’t see where I was heading were blown away at once,

and I made a vow to give my all to the things in front of me


I was 13-years-old at the time, and now I’m 21~(^-^)

Time flies

But I often hear it being said that being able to continue doing 1 thing for a long time like this is amazing

That’s certainly the case…

That fact that we’re able to continue as ℃-ute like this even today is due to the support of so many people

Honestly, there’ve been a lot of obstacles I couldn’t have overcome by myself,

and times where I thought “It’s useless…” and felt like my heart would break.


Even still,
I was able to come this far without losing because of a lot of support from the other members,
my family,
the staff,
my friends,
…and then, all of the fans


I worried and worried…
But in the end, I always thought things like

“Well, how will everyone who has supported me feel


“I want to see more of those people’s smiles and their delight“…

When I think back to that time now, I’m glad I didn’t quit…

There are things I’ve been able to see because I didn’t give up

There are people I met because I didn’t give up

I think that everyone who supported us felt frustrated when we felt frustrated,

and times when they worried “Are they going to be alright“.

But now I think
“I want to see things we couldn’t see at that time together“… And then, “I want to repay them

Thank you so much for believing in ℃-ute


And then, everyone who recently became interested in ℃-ute…

It’s amazing that we’ve met

The cause of the meeting is different for everyone,

but I’m grateful from the bottom of my heart that you discovered ℃-ute amongst all the people that we’ll never meet in our lifetimes

There was a time when those who have supported ℃-ute for a long time first started to cheer for us too…

I want everyone who has discovered and started supporting ℃-ute recently to a~lways love us

Before we realize it, “now” will become “back then”, and there will be even more new members of team ℃-ute…

When that time comes, I want you to proudly say
“I’ve supported ℃-ute since back then~“(lol)

Everyone, please continue to support ℃-ute


Yaji loves ℃-ute

I’m happy that I’m in ℃-ute

To everyone who follows ℃-ute… Thank you from the bottom of my heart…



June 11th
