Blog update: “Present\(^o^) /”

Maimi rehearses for the Berikyuu event in Paris and receives a belated birthday gift in her June 20th update “Present\(^o^) /“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi


It was really, really hot all day yesterdayε-(´∀`; )

In that heat, Nakajima Saki-chan, Hagiwara Mai-chan and I had a particular filming(^-^)

It was rea~lly fun(*^^*)♪

I’ll announce on this blog when the broadcast date gets closer(*^^*)

we had rehearsal for “Japan Expo 15th Anniversary Berryz Kobo X ℃-ute in Hello! Project Festival”, which will be held in Paris on July 3rd(o^^o)

I met all the members of Berryz Koubou for the first time in awhile(//∇//)


Going to France with Berryz Koubou
I wonder what it will be like~(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

I’m excited now(≧∇≦)

When we went to France for the first time last year, I was able to meet a lot of fans who cheer for us overseas, so I was really, really happy

But I hadn’t had a chance to go to France until then, and when it was over, I wondered if I wouldn’t be able to meet them anymore,

and I started feeling sad(´Д` )

However, unbelievably, we’re able to go to France again this soon…

I was really happy

There are people cheering for us even though they’re far across the ocean and we can’t meet, and that’s something I really must be grateful for。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

So that we can put on a fun performance for the many people we’ll meet in France, I’ll do my best♪───O(≧∇≦)O────♪

During a break in the rehearsal,

Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan gave me this


A bag and dried natto~(o^^o)

She said they’re my birthday presents~~~(≧∇≦)


Chinami had kept saying that she would take me on a trip as my birthday present

But our days off never matched up, so it never came to fruition…ヽ(;▽;)ノ

During that time, Chinami’s birthday arrived and I gave her a present,

so I think she felt bad and bought them for me♪( ´θ`)ノ

I’m happy~

It’s a cute and small bag, and though I have a lot to carry today,

I was so happy to get it that I left the house carrying that small bag and a big bag(//∇//)

Hahaha♪( ´θ`)ノ

Thanks Chii

I’ll cherish them☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆


And then,

it seems Chii went to Kamakura with her mother the other day,
and she bought the dried natto there(o^^o)

I went to Kamakura and Enoshima with Chinami before,

and back then I bought a lot of dried natto, so it seems she remembered

As expected of Chii☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

It seems like she was able to go to the restaurant we lined up at last time,

and she told me “I ate in that restaurant“(^-^)/

I want to go again

I’ll patiently wait and let’s go together when our schedules match up\(^o^)/

Alright Today’s weather will be good

I could hear the croaks of the frogs in the paddy fields

It made me feel nostalgic and reminded me of the summer of 2002 after we passed the audition and our first job filming the movie “Koinu Dan no Monogatari”(o^^o)


I’ll have fun doing my best today

We have an individual handshake event in the evening

Everyone participating, please travel carefully~(o^^o)

I’m waiting\(^o^)/

Well then, well then, have a wonderful afternoon…( ´ ▽ ` )


The YouTube program “UpFront Channel Recommend Vol.3” will be uploaded tonight at 6:00PM(^-^)/…

The MCs are Hello! Project trainee Taguchi Natsumi-chan and myself(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

There’s information about the release of ℃-ute’s double A-side single “The Power/Kanashiki Heaven (Single version)”,

and a clip of the the debut performance of “The Power” from our June 11th event (it’s a different angle from the one shone on the YouTube program “Hello! Station”)\(^o^)/

Please be sure to check it out
