Blog update: “Berryz Koubou(// ~//)”

Maimi finishes her last Hello! concert with Berikyuu the same way they began in her February 15th update “Berryz Koubou(// ~//)“. Full translation below.

Good evening
It’s Maimi

Today, February 15th, is Morning Musume。’15’s Ogata Haruna-chan’s 16th birthday~(≧∇≦)


Happy birthday, Ogata-chan

Ogata-chan is from Osaka,
and the finale of the Hello! Project concerts was held there today(^-^)

She just joined Hello! Project, and now she’s a long way from her hometown,

so I’m happy she was able to spend her birthday there(o^^o)

Some day I’d like to see Ogata-chan figure skating in person~~(^o^)/

I hope she has a year full of happiness and energy

Have a wonderful year~(^^)

Now then, as I wrote above, today was the Hello! Project concert finale(T ^ T)

The curtains closed on the tour that started on the 2nd day of the new year

It was the first tour of the new Hello! Project

…Or maybe I should say that it was the first Hello! concert for some and the last for others

There’s 15 days left until Berryz Koubou suspends their activities

Since we joined Hello! Project together, we’ve had Hello! concerts every summer and winter

What’ll it be like when they’re not there next summer??

It’ll feel uncomfortable not having Berryz Koubou at rehearsal…

Berikyuu (Berryz Koubou X ℃-ute) were originally one group called Hello! Project Kids.

Our first performance was “Ganbacchae!” at a Hello! concert

We wanted to sing “Ganbacchae!” again at the last Hello! concert, so we begged the staff.

They granted our wish

I was really happy that we all got to sing “Ganbacchae!” at the end

Tsugunaga Momoko-chan’s health hasn’t improved, so regrettably she couldn’t participate, but the feelings of all 12 members were present on stage

Once again I felt that the bonds we formed as colleagues and rivals over 13 years won’t be broken no matter what,

and this gratitude and love that I feel for Berryz Koubou will continue forever~…

We will take Berryz Koubou’s feelings, and even after they’ve stopped their activities, we will combine our power with everyone and do our best to raise the excitement in Hello! Project


Today is a day I’ll remember my entire life

Let’s continue to make a lot of memories until March 3rd

Everyone who participated,
everyone who couldn’t but send us your cheers, thank you so very much

Let’s continue to have wonderful days starting tomorrow too

The release of our new single, which we debuted at the Hello! concert, has been decided(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

The writer of the song is Nakajima Takui-san, so it’s a rock number

The title is

“Tsugi no Kado wo Magare”

Times when you’re helpless even though you did your best,
changing how you think and your point of view is important, and will probably cause you to discover something new!

That’s the message we sing

I want this song to give hope and power to as many people as possible

It releases on April 1st
Our chances to perform the song will increase from here, so please be sure to check it out
