▪The Hello! Project official shop is offering an exclusive cover and one of 2 bonus photos (pictured below in that order) for those who pre-order Maimi’s upcoming photobook “Glass to Mizu” through the store between September 19th and 29th. Those interested in the photobook with the first photo can find it here and the second photo here.
▪℃-ute members Suzuki Airi and Nakajima Saki uploaded 2-shots with Maimi in their entries on the official ℃-ute blog today, and Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki shared a 2-shot of her own over at her official blog. Translations of their entries can be found over at blog!project.
According to Maimi’s September 17th update on the official ℃-ute blog, she will take on hosting duties of the YouTube program “Hello! Station” for the first time in the episode that will be uploaded tomorrow, September 18th at 9:00PM JST. Once it’s uploaded, the episode will be able to be seen on the Hello! Project Station channel.
The Hello! Project official site has updated with the news of Maimi’s next solo photobook, “Glass to Mizu”. According to the news post, this photobook will contain pictures from a photoshoot for the “Hello! Project Digital Books” site back in April of 2010, which would put the Maimi in the pictures at 18-years-old. The photobook is being published by Wanibooks, and will be released on October 15th for 2,400 yen.
It’s already September 9th in Japan, which means it’s the first of two days of ℃-ute’s performances at Nippon Budoukan. Anyone who follows Maimi’s blog updates knows how much these performances mean to her and the other members, but unfortunately, most of us overseas fans can’t go and spend this auspicious day with the girls and our fellow fans across the ocean. That doesn’t have to stop us from sending our best wishes to ℃-ute though. So I’d like to wish Maimi and the other members a safe and successful Budoukan performance on behalf of myself and all the readers of MaimiLog!
