Blog update: “Behind-the-scenes stories(^-^)v”

Maimi revists the recently completed play “Taklamakan” with look behind-the-scenes in her June 14th update titled “Behind-the-scenes stories(^-^)v“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

It’s raining today, huh…(・o・)
The kind of weather you’d expect from rainy season has finally arrived…

It didn’t rain at all during performances of the play “Taklamakan” though…(  ̄▽ ̄)

For that time alone, I was a clear skies girl…( ̄ー+ ̄)

…Just kidding…

There was always a clear skies girl next to Yaji(。-∀-)


It was my first time spending such a long time with my company senior, Niigaki Risa-san

Whenever it was time for a break,
Niigaki-san would call out “Let’s go get something to eat

We talked a lot in the dressing room

Like my big sister,
she worried about my voice backstage and gave me hard candy saying “Here, eat this“,

and when we received cakes, she said “Pick the one you like Let’s eat together“…

She fawned over me a lot…( ´∀`)

She was kind, and it was really calming being around her

…That said, Yaji’s character in the play was older than her’s~

There was a scene where I battled with Niigaki-san…\(◎o◎)/
It was my first time doing something like that


Well then, I’ll continue to share behind-the-scenes pictures and stories from Taklamakan today…


With Igari Asami-san

The truth is, I started participating in the practice later than everyone else,

and at first, I was given a video of the sword battle and told “This is what we practiced today

Igari-san stood-in for my role, Kei, and she learned all of my movements

Watching that video of Igari-san, I memorized the sword battle


In addition, Igari-san always stood-in for the role of Kei when I couldn’t participate in practice,

and she’d always contact me when they’d add parts or make changes

I’m grateful to her for a lot

Igari-san, thank you very much

Nice smiles…(^-^)

We had performances 12 days in a row, so yesterday felt a little strange

I’d think “This is the time we’d be having a performance~…

I’ve got to do my best everyday so I can work with everyone in Hata-gumi again(・~・´)

Well then
Though it’s wet from the rain,
let’s go cheerfully today

Until tomorrow’s update~
