Blog update: “|OFF|(・∀・)”

Maimi spent her day off reconnecting with an old friend in her June 20th entry titled “|OFF|(・∀・)“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

I had the day off yesterday

Around noon,
I met with my close friend

She’s the source of Yaji’s spirit

…Though I say that, there are a lot of sources of my spirit

I hadn’t met her since I went over to that girl’s house to give her a ticket before the Tokyo performances of ℃-ute’s tour


“This concert was the most fun ever“, she told me


That girl loves to sing
Yesterday we reminisced

“Speaking of which, Yaji began to love music because of that girl’s influence


In the past, the 2 of us would hum together no matter where we went


In the school hallways
In the gymnasium
In the classroom too


When we were together, it was like we unconsciously started humming

I remember our gym teacher getting angry and saying
“This isn’t your music lesson Ψ(`◇´)Ψ”…(;^_^A

It’s ingrained in me even now after we graduated and went our seperate ways,


and I’ll often catch myself humming while on the roadside or wherever


Earlier my manager said
“Yajima is always singing, huh“,


and I noticed my close friend was humming as we were walking outside yesterday,

and it made me think “Ah~ Nostalgic It used to always be like this~



Also, the 2 of us took purikura pictures(゜o゜)/

When I took some with the other ℃-ute members earlier,
I thought
“It’s been a real long time since I’ve done this\(◎o◎)/“,

but how many years has it been since I took one with my close friend

It’s been so long I can’t remember

The 2 of us took pictures while getting flustered by the current purikura machinesヽ(´o`;

The variety of purikura machines lately is amazingΣ( ̄□ ̄)!

“There were purikura machines that we could take a picture with for 100 yen when we were little

“Whoa There was, there was We used them a lot(≧∀≦)

We’ve been friends for 15 years, so we have a lot of memories together,

and I feel that our relationship will ne~ver change

Or should I said, I don’t want it to change


We also went out to eat

The 2 of us were really, really indecisive like
“What to eat~
and “Hmm… What should we do…“,

but we decided on our food, and ate while talking a lot(´ー`⊂)


She took a picture of me while I was reading the menu (lol)

Also, we found this girl on the sidewalk


A poodle
She was waiting for her owner in front of the supermarket

She was really, really friendly(≧∀≦)

When I got close,
she hopped around while licking me

she got so exhausted from the excitement that she laid down (lol)

My friend and I laughed a lot(≧∇≦)

After a little while, her owner returned,

and when I said “She’s friendly~“,

the owner said “She’s just stupid┓( ̄∇ ̄;)┏”


The poodles at my house are the same way

I wonder if poodles are naturally friendly


Both of us really love doggies,
so it was really soothing(^-^)


It seems my close friend had plans, but she put them off so she could meet Yaji…(T^T)


Meeting her again after a long time was really, really fun(*^ー^*)

I’ll cheerfully do my best until we can meet again…


Now then
Because of that, I’ll head out fired up todayε=┌( ・v・)┘
