Blog update: “HAPPYヽ( ´ー`)ノ”

Maimi has an unexpected encounter with a kindred spirit in her August 3rd update “HAPPYヽ( ´ー`)ノ“. Full translation below.

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

Yesterday all of ℃-ute had a photoshoot for the front cover and opening article in “Young GanGan”,

an interview and photoshoot for the front cover of “Rakkuyuu”,
which will go on sale August 23d,

and a photoshoot and interview for “CD Journal”,
which goes on sale August 20th

There’s a lot of chances for people to learn about ℃-ute, so I’m really happy

Please be sure to check them out

Well then,
I’ll write about my HAPPY story which I ran out of room to earlier…

July 31st
In order to go shopping for outfits for ℃-ute’s Otodama concert, we were going to meet at 6:00PM

I looked up what train I’d need to take to make it on time,

and I decided to take a train a little earlier so I’d have extra time…

I arrived at the platform just as the train departed
I thought “I’m bored” and sat on a bench sipping cafe au lait I had bought from a vending machine(´ 3`)lol

While doing that, I saw a familiar figure in my peripheral vision…

I took off running with a big smile

That girl looked back and said
“Eek(>ロ<)… You scared me~”…

Without thinking, I said


It was my fault though…(°∇°;)


It was my close friend who I travelled with for summer vacation a few days ago

I was happy

My close friend said “Eh Why’re you here(゜o゜)/ Ah It’s a real miracle (lol) I actually had to get on the train that leaves at ○○ o’clock, but I thought ‘I’ll go a little early‘, and so I’m waiting for this train“…

“Eh(°∇°) Hold on… I also actually had to get on the train that leaves at ○○ o’clock, but instead I’ll get on this train…

Ever since we were young, we’ve had a connection

We’ve dreamt of the same situation on the same day

By the way, we attended the same cram school

We’d ride the train together midway, and during that time we wouldn’t stop talking

We’d wander around the stores at the station where we switched trains,
and spend the time we got from riding earlier trains together

“If we’re both going home around the same time, let’s meet up and go together” she said,

but our schedules didn’t match, so we couldn’t meet up(^^;)

Suddenly I remembered
“Ah!(゜o゜)/ Tomorrow I’ll be walking on the sand… I’ll need to wear beach sandals“…

The sunflower beach sandals that my close friend and I bought when we went travelling together came to mind,

and I thought “Alright(・∀・´) I’ll bring them with me“,

but then I realized I gave my beach sandals to my close friend(lol)

There’s a reason for that…
The two of us put on our sunflower beach sandals and went to watch the Kamakura fireworks

When we returned to the inn…

“Huh… (…? Hey, hey, isn’t ○○’s (←my close friend) sunflower broken(°∇°;)?”

There was someone who is more of a crusher than me (lol)

Though we had just bought them, the brown part had fallen off the sunflower, and it looked like an average flower…

I told her “Since I don’t often go to the beach, here Take these home with you

and gave her my beach sandals


I sent her an email that read “Hey, I’m going home right now, but is it alright if I stop at your house I want to borrow your beach sandals(°∇°;)

My dad picked me up at the station and took my to my close friend’s house, and I picked up the beach sandals and went home

My close friend has the the same shoe size as me, so I was saved~

We walked a lot during our trip, so my heel became chafed(>_<)

My close friend because tired because she was wearing shoes with low heels,

so we exchanged shoes towards the end (lol)
Our height difference became incredible…(^^;)

When I got home,
she had sent me a mail that read “Do your best at the Otodama concert tomorrow“, and it made me happy

My close friend is always giving me power

I’ve gotta make sure to return the beach sandals soon…(°∇°;)

Now then,
we just now finished rehearsal

Today we have the Hello! Project concerts at Nakano Sun Plaza

I’ll have another wonderful day today

  1. LOL typical Maimi-chan mislabelling picture 2 as picture 3 hehe xD

    • Haha, wow, you’re right. It’s gotten to the point that I don’t even notice it anymore.

      • Now now a scatter-brained Maimi-chan is cute but for a guy who is 6 feet and 6 inches (pardon me if I got your height wrong :P) tall, being scatter-brained like her isn’t going to make you cute overnight ya know! 😛 Hehehe xD
