Blog update: “Stomach o(^▽ ^)o”

Maimi uses her stomach to sing and then fills it with sweets in her December 18th update “Stomach o(^▽ ^)o“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

I woke up early and made my mother’s lunch(^o^)


I should cook occasionally too

Yesterday I had voice training and rehearsal for the New Year’s Hello! Project concert afterwards

My teacher said something like this during voice training

When babies are crying,

they don’t use their throats, right?

Dogs are the same way
Even though they’re barking loudly,
they never start coughing during!

They a~ll use the entirety of their bodies, and their voices come from their diaphragmso(^▽^)o

When I thought about it, everyone is able to do abdominal breathing when they’re born

And then, I suddenly wondered!(・o・)

Everyone is able to do it without being taught when born,

but why do they become unable to do it without realizing?


When I entered showbusiness, the first thing we were taught was rhythm and abdominal breathing,

and it took me a rea~lly long time before I was able to hold my breath

I practiced frantically by blowing up a balloon while lying downσ(^_^;)

But the more I train the more I can hold my breath,

and to be able to make my stomach inflate big like my teacher,

I have to train a lot

A variety of techniques,
expression emotions…

“I’ve got to work hard so that I can move people with my performances” I felt

And afterwards, rehearsal

We practiced the stage positioning for 3 additional songs yesterday o(^▽^)o

It made me want to have the concerts soon(=´∀`)人(´∀`=)

Ah And then, after rehearsal,
Nacky gave us this


Homemade sweet potatoes(^-^)

It was rea~~lly delicious~


Airi also said “After eating Mai-chan’s mama’s apple pie,

I wanted to try making it myself and I bought all the ingredients before I knew it( ´ ▽ ` )ノ”,

and recently I’ve been addicted to making sweets,

so it made me think that making treats has become popular within ℃-ute(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

It’s fun
Just looking at sweets makes me happy

I’ll do my best to level up my feminine power(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))


And then, I have announcements today

I watched it at home while sobbing
I hope a lot of people will watch it

Well then,
let’s have a wonderful day today

Until tomorrow’s update~
