Blog update: “Fireworks~ヾ(^ ▽^)ノ”

Maimi shares more stories and images from the Hello! Project concert rehearsals as they wrap up in her July 21st update “Fireworks~ヾ(^ ▽^)ノ“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

All of ℃-ute had a photoshoot yesterday morning

I’ll announce the details later


we had rehearsal for the Hello! Project concerts starting on July 27th at Osaka’s ORIX Theater

We did the stage positioning for every song yesterday

And then, today is finally the genepuro

Genepuro is a full run-through where we wear all the outfits like in the performance

Tsunku♂-san will also come to check

We’ve finally come this far

There’s one week remaining until the performances, so I’ve gotta do my best(・∀・´)

Well then, here’s some pictures from our lunch break yesterday…


Sitting next to me, Chinami-san(Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan)

She’s drawing on the omelete rice in her lunch box frantically (lol)

With Morning Musume’s Ikuta Erina-chan


Congratulations on your birthday the other day (July 7th)

I watched her rehearsal yesterday while thinking “Eripon’s dancing draws my attention~

Let’s do our best at the Hello! Project concert~

Rehearsal finished earlier than planned yesterday

In the car on the way home,

my mom said “Look, look It’s beautiful“…

When I looked outside,
I saw fireworks going off in succession

The first fireworks of the year~

They were so beautiful

During the filming of the “CAT’SEYE” music video last year, I was able to see fireworks from the rooftop of a building~

One year has already passed~
Time is flying~

Fireworks are nice
Yeah(・v・) It felt like summer


When I returned home and was eating watermelon…

For some reason my cellphone was flashing…

I received an e-mail from my close friend

She wrote “We’re having a birthday party right now, so would Maimi be able to stop by“…

My classmates had birthdays yesterday and the day before, and it seemed like they all gathered to celebrate,

so I stopped by for a little while too

There were people there who I hadn’t seen since the coming-of-age ceremony, and they had become really mature

We started talking about our jobs,

and it made me think “Everyone’s amazing~”

There are a lot of difficulties with any job, but everyone’s doing their best

Things we tend to think are natural come about because of people like that hard work

We’ve got to live our lives with gratitude

I left quickly because I had the genepuro today, but I was glad that I could celebrate those two’s birthdays and that everyone I hadn’t seen in awhile seemed to be doing well

Have a wonderful year~

Well then, I’ll do my best at today’s genepuro

Until tomorrow’s update~

I’m o~ff
