Blog update: “A lot!!( ◎_◎;)”

Maimi rises early and talks all about the Hello! concerts in her January 19th update “A lot( ◎_◎;)“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

For some reason or another, I woke up∑(゜Д゜)

It’s still pitch black outside
There’s still an hour and half before my alarm goes off

But I’m not sleepy at all,
so I thought “I’ll write my update(・ω・)ノ”, and that’s how we arrived here(^◇^;)

Today is the 2nd day of the National Center Tests

How were the tests yesterday?

When I read the comments, it seem they went differently for people,

but please relax, believe in yourself, and take the challenge

I’m cheering for all of the hard working test-takers with all my might today too


And then,
yesterday we had Hello! Project concerts in Nagoya

Everyone who participated,
everyone who cheered for us,
thank you very much

Hagiwara Mai-chan couldn’t participate this time due to the flu,
but we went back and forth on LINE the e~ntire time,
and she gave me power before the performance…

“I want to see everyone soon(T ^ T)” she said…ヽ(´o`;

We want to see Mai soon too

She also wrote “I’m really sorry for causing problems. Do your best at the performance!”,

but it’s times like this I think “This is a group that is able to cooperate…

℃-ute stood on stage with 4 members,
but the spirits of 5 members were there


And then, Mai was worried about us and asked
“Is everyone doing alright?“,

but the 4 of us are healthy

However, it seems like the flu is really going around, so “unpreparedness is one’s greatest enemy”(・_・;

I want to make sure I take the proper precautions
Everyone, please be careful too


Now then, at the performances in Nagoya,
Yajima appeared in the solo corner( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

At all of the performances this time, a Hello! Project member performs a solo,


and that’s right Yajima’s solo was in Nagoya

I performed “Osaka Koi no Uta”

Though the fans were fans of a variety of groups,
everyone in the audience waved red glowsticks,

and I was moved thinking

“How kind…ヽ(;▽;)ノ”(T ^ T)

I was really happy
Thank you。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

In addition,
this happened backstage……


Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan gave me rea~lly delicious dried persimmons

They’re expensive, but really delicious

It was my first time eating dried persimmons in awhile
I love them

Thanks, Chii


And then, when I went to the catering… This happened too

While I was getting rice,

someone suddenly grabbed me from behind…!(◎_◎;)

“Who am I” the voice said…


Though I wondered “Eh… who is it??”,

they were holding so tightly I couldn’t turn around(;゜0゜)

And then, Chii was sitting next to me and said
“How nice(≧ロ≦) Lucky~( ;´Д`)”…lol

“Eh…? Saki?”

The hand clinging to me was slender,
so I thought it was Berryz Koubou’s Shimizu Saki-chan, but when I answered,



it was Ayacho


How cute/(//∇//)/

Ayacho soothed me again

Here’s a picture with S/mileage’s Wada Ayaka-chan, a.k.a. Ayacho, and S/mileage members (from left) Tamura Meimi-chan, Nakanishi Kana-chan, and Katsuta Rina-chan


someone else who did their best in the solo corner

Juice=Juice’s Miyazaki Yuka-chan


Yuka-chan was after me in the solo corner

I had to change outfits after my solo performance, so I wasn’t able to see her’s,

but Suzuki Airi-chan watched from a monitor backstage,
and praised her saying “Miyazaki-chan was really cute

When we returned to the dressing room too,
she murmured “Ah, Miyazaki-chan was cute~

I wish I could’ve seen it


Now then

We have Hello! Project concerts in Nagoya again today

Before the performances,
there’ll be a coming of age ceremony of Berryz Koubou’s Kumai Yurina-chan
and ℃-ute’s Nakajima Saki-chan

Please be absolutely sure to participate in the ceremony

I’ll have a wonderful day today

It’s become bright outside,
so I’ll start getting ready

Until tomorrow~


Today is my senior Ishikawa Rika-san’s birthday/(//∇//)/

We met for the first time in awhile at the countdown concert on New Year’s Day and Eve,

and she was as beautiful as always,
and I was moved to be able to see her up-close on stage again

Ishikawa-san, please have a wonderful year

Happy birthday

The setlist from ℃-ute’s first appearance at “COUNTDOWN JAPAN 13/14” last year is currently available as an download-exclusive album

It’s only available until January 30th, 2014, so please be sure to check it out…
