Blog update: “Turned 23!!(o^^o)”

Maimi wraps up her 22nd year with the fans and takes a look back in her February 7th update “Turned 23(o^^o)“. Full translation below.

Good evening
It’s Maimi

Today I safely made it to 23-years-old

So this is what it feels like, huh( ´ ▽ ` )ノlol

When I was little, it seemed so far away
Time flies…

My surroundings changed in the past year
My seniors graduated and those of us in Berikyuu (Berryz Koubou X ℃-ute) became the oldest members in Hello! Project,

a lot of new members joined, so I tightened my mind more than ever,

and I became the leader of Hello! Project

I had a lot of worries,
but a lot of people supported me this year

Yesterday, my last day as a 22-year-old,
I had a birthday event at Differ Ariake,

and hey said “You can do anything you want in the alloted time!(*^^*)”,

so it was an event where I had complete freedom(^-^)

First I thought “Alright! I want to sing a lot and make the performance the main part“,

and since the songs at my casual dinner show December of last year was acoustic, and therefore mellow,

this time I wanted to have a concert with lively songs(^-^)

For the song list, I was thinking “What kind of concept would be good~” when I came up with the idea of a solo Hello! Project concert(*^^*)

I performed songs by Country Musume。,
Hello! Project trainees,
Berryz Koubou,
and Morning Musume。(^o^)/*

I sang a lot of other songs, for a total of 13

I was also able to show of my throwing and batting skills, so it was fun

And then, my pet dog Cologne-chan, who was also born on February 7th, appeared as a special guest(//∇//)


Cologne turned 9-years-old, so she’s a real granny now(//∇//)

She also showed off her special skill of walking on 2 legs

My pet dogs often appear in my blog, but it’s the first time that one of them has appeared in person in front of everyone

I was really happy that everyone celebrated not just my birthday, but Cologne’s as well

Thank you

After the performance, Cologne and I saw everyone off(^-^)

And then, I was surprised that Morning Musume。’15’s Fukumura Mizuki-chan came to watchヽ(;▽;)ノ


I was sooooooo happy~(T . T)
She also gave me her impressions…

Fuku-chan, thank you(T ^ T)

I was really moved seeing the venue lit up with Yajima-colored glowsticks


It made me very happy that so many people came from a variety of places for my sake

I’m really, really happy that I got to spend the last of my 22nd year with everyone

I will take my time to look at the presents and letters(//∇//)
Thank you!

There are people who unfortunately couldn’t come because of circumstances, but thank you for your support and for celebrating

Thank you for all the congratulatory comments in the blog too

Ooh, there’s so many things to say thanks forヽ(;▽;)ノ


Wait! Wait!
My update has already become this long(°_°)

I haven’t gotten to write about turning 23…(^◇^;)

But there were lots and lots of happy things about my birthday

There are still a few hours in February 7th,
so I’ll thoroughly reflect on today until the very end
Tomorrow I will write about my enthusiasm for being 23 and the happy things that happened today

Yesterday I said I’d write about them, but I’ve run out of space(>人<;)

But at any rate, what I can say is that thanks to all of the fans and everyone around me, I started my 23rd year as happy as possible

Please read again tomorrow
