Blog update: “Date”

Maimi meets a close friend for some shopping and a meal and introduces another member of the newest Hello! Project unit in her January 8th update “Date“. Full translation below.

Good afternoon
It’s Maimi

I had things I needed to do in the city yesterday morning,

and after I was finished, I met up with Berryz Koubou’s Tokunaga Chinami-chan in the evening,

and we went shopping together~(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

Shopping’s fun~(o^^o)

I was like “I’m hungry♪(´ε` )”,

so we decided “We had crab last time, so let’s get regular shabu-shabu this time♪( ´θ`)ノ”

and we entered the restaurant,
but it was so crowded that we gave up…(´・_・`)

“I’m certain there’s another shabu-shabu restaurant near, so let’s try that one(//∇//)”

So the 2 of us walked around, but then we stopped in our tracks in front of a particular sign( ゜д゜)

“Cheese fondue~(≧∇≦) Hey Let’s eat here“…

We both agreed on it, so we went into the cheese fondue restaurant…♪( ´θ`)ノ


The cheese was goo~~ey
It was really delicious(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))


The 2 of us ate a lot♪( ´θ`)ノ

A~h I was happy♪(´ε` )

It seems there were 3 people whose birthday it was in the restaurant,
so we heard the happy birthday song 3 times while we were there(^o^)/*

It’s a good omen

When I go out to eat, there’s a good chance I’ll hear a birthday song(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

I think it’s safe to say that there’s always about 1 person in a restaurant whose birthday it is,

and speaking of which,
earlier I was told “I always see someone celebrating a birthday without fail when I go out to eat with Maimi-chan“,

and I remember thinking “Ah It can’t be that frequent(・o・)ノ”

On the way home Chii always heads in the direction of Kanagawa and I always head in the direction of Saitama,

but yesterday, Chii’s train came early!

As I was thinking I’d see Chinami off,

as expected, she was worried about me and said “Yaji-san, will you be alright? Can you get home??”(^◇^;)

“I’m fine I can make it home~( ̄▽ ̄)

“Got it! Be careful~ Thanks for today~(o^^o)

We said bye bye to each other, but I immediately received an email that read

“The train Yaji-san is riding will stop before your station, so make sure to transfer!(*^^*)”…

China-san is amazing~~ヽ(;▽;)ノ

It seems she looked at the electronic schedule for me as well and then sent me the e-mail…(/ _ ; )

She’s really attentive… That girl…(T ^ T)

“It’s okay! I waited for the next train, which won’t stop before my station♪( ´θ`)ノ”

I fell in love with Chii-san’s kindness and helpfulness again

Well then, here’s today’s introduction
From Hello! Project’s new unit, Hamaura Ayano-chan(^o^)/*


Hama-chan has worked hard as a Hello! Project trainee ever since she was really little!(/ _ ; )

Of the current trainees, she’s been training the longest along with Taguchi Natsumi-chan who I introduced the other day

I get nostalgic thinking of tiny Hama-chan

It’s a story from a really long time ago,
but I have a vivid memory of when Berryz Koubou’s Tsugunaga Momoko-chan told the trainees
“Everyone who thinks Momochi is cute, come grab my finger(≧∇≦)”,

and the rest of us joked around and told the trainees
“Everyone! Absolutely don’t grab her finger~~(・Д・)ノ”,

but Hama-chan alone went and grabbed Momochi’s finger tightly

I vaguely remember Momochi being delighted and either hugging Hama-chan or carrying her in her arms~

That little Hama-chan has quickly grown and has a great figureΣ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ

But her love for Momochi hasn’t changed,

and she was always using a Momo clearfile when she participated in ℃-ute’s tour(o^^o)lol

Her pureness is cute~(*^^*)

And then,
on “Hello! Station #99” on YouTube, Hama-chan’s tears…

They’re beautiful. Really…

On “Hello! Station” you can see the moment I told them about the new unit,
and no one cried more than Hama-chan…

There was probably a lot going through her mind…

I’m really glad the new unit was decided on…

Let’s continue to do our best


It’s cold outside

Everyone, please stay healthy

Well then, until tomorrow’s update~♪( ´θ`)ノ
Bye byeeee
