Karin: In praise of Take-chan

{Time to hear from one side of my favourite H!P love triangle. She even gives a shout-out to the other half as well.}
From Karin's J=J blog post
From Top Yell+
Let's hear from all the Hello! Pro members ! 'Hello! Pro great dictionary!!'

Q1. What's a moe point of a Hello! Pro member that only you know of?
Takeuchi Akari-chan
The movements of her fingers when she's handling a file! I really love Take-chan's fingers!
When she's flipping through a file, it's really exquisite. Perhaps I like the shape of her nails too.
I like it when they're slightly stretched out. So when she's going through a file, my heart skips a beat.

Q10. What's your favourite tree? {I get the feeling this is a throwback to the Tsunkurabu H!P DVD magazine, where a member (Risako?) mentioned that Maa-chan had asked her this very question}
Bamboo ('Take' in Japanese)
I think that it's very Japanese.
Besides that, since it's the 'Take' from my favourite Take-chan (lol)

{And here's a shout-out to the other half of the equation}

Q5. If you would be so kind to think of it, Hello! Pro's best couple would be?
Fukumura Mizuki-chan & Takeuchi Akari-chan
They wear matching jerseys, and seeing them together at Hello! Cons always soothes me!
At handshake events, I'm asked, 'Doesn't it make you burn with jealousy?', but I'm not jealous at all.
I feel like I'd like to watch them instead. The 2-shots on their blogs are awesome!!

Imagine how excited she must have got seeing this (From Fuku-chan's MM 9ki blog post)

My Jam: Maeda Atsuko's Żubrówka to Half Moon

Enjoying this jazzy (lounge?) number from Acchan's recent single.

Setting is a girl who's just gone through a break-up, and wants to drink the night away.
A bit heavier than your standard idol fare, but Acchan's a big girl now.

Maasa, Ass Appreciator

Recently the interwebz were treated to this statement from Sarubee:
Discussing about parts they like on those of the same gender
Takagi: Asses. I like Reina-san's ass but I like Yuka's ass too
Takagi: Which reminds me, talking about asses, when changing clothes backstage at a Hello! Con, I ended up inadvertently sticking out my butt. Then Berryz Kobo's Sudo Maasa-san, who was behind me, went 'encore! encore!'

So it turns out that Maasa's basically a dirty old man. Which kinda makes her one of us. (Related matome) (Another matome with lots more stories)

The following video has the Berryz girls talking about Maasa's interest in posteriors, and she ultimately ends up ranking her top 3 in the group, plus whom she ranks lowest.

The video thumbnail says it all: Miya's ass is the bomb

3rd: Yurina
2nd: Saki
Best: Miya
Worst: Chinami
She also explains the basis of why she had deemed a certain person as having the worst ass in Berryz - because it's shaped like that (hand gesture) - and Chii more or less ends up outing herself.

Exactly what it says on the tin (Source)
Personally, I like Momobutt. But:
i. oshi bias.
ii. Assposure - Butt shots aren't really that common out of PBs, and Momo is Berryz' PB queen by volume, with the most exposure (in several senses of the word). Let's just say Momo's assets are well covered.
iii. Insider info - While we have a limited number of PBs to refer to, Maa has ample opportunity to sample the derrières of all the members. At live performances, at Hello! Cons, in between songs at concerts... Perk of the job, really.

Would this qualify Maasa as an Oshiri sister, joining in the ranks of Mayu and Oshima Yuko? Pretty decent company. Plus, nice butts.

And just in case you think this is something new, let's jump back to the tail end of 2012.
Let's look at this blog post by Maimai (rokun's translation on blog project)

[Written on note] I love Mai by Maasa
* Asses are 
Excerpt from the blog post:
'Asses are, communication'
It mentioned ...(lol)(lol)
You'd expect no less from Maasa (lol)
You've got to watch out for your bottom with Maasa! (lol)(lol)

H!P Blog Relay: The aftermath

So here's a compilation and summary of the posts made by the H!P members for the blog relay.
It was started by Sayu to build up to the 2014 HinaFes, and went around full circle to end at Riho.
Generally, each person nominated someone from a different group to continue on with the relay. As a group, Berryz were the first to have all their members reply.
That was quite a ride. I apologise for all the spamming if you weren't interested, especially if you check this blog out through RSS.
And if you were following along, thanks for coming along with the ride.

Something that moved her recently
Michishige SayumiSetting her bangs, the Japanese representatives at the Sochi Olumpics
Nakanishi KanaThe warmth of her hometown, Osaka
Okai Chisato (note: directly lifted off blog!project)Berryz 10th year anniversary
Natsuyaki MiyabiBerryz 10th year anniversary, the 10th year anniversary cake, her Budokan solo
Miyazaki YukaH!P Kenshuusei dancing to J=J songs
Ikuta ErinaHer lines in the au commercial
Shimizu SakiBerryz 10th anniversary
Iikubo HarunaBuying reasonably priced clothes
Hagiwara MaiHer friends and their great dreams
Tokunaga Chinami Her mother's hand made bento
Oda Sakura Shooting the au commercial with the fans
Tsugunaga Momoko Having her birthday celebrated by lots of people
Tamura Meimi Watching Shiki Theatre Company's 'Wicked' performance
Nakajima Saki The growth of her Jurin can
Takeuchi Akari Moved to tears by dramas
Ishida Ayumi The white day cakes from the manager
Sugaya Risako Berryz 10th anniversary
Fukumura Mizuki The comments she received when she was hit by the flu
Sudo Maasa E-mail from Fuku-chan mentioning that she loved Berryz
Uemura Akari Going through the graduation writings of her classmates
Katsuta Rina Autograph cards and letters from friends at her graduation ceremony
Sato Masaki Meeting up with Tanasa-tan
Takagi Sayuki Her sister's graduation from primary school
Kumai Yurina Reading the book 'Dakishimete'
Kudo Haruka Formation of Satoyama unit 'Triplet'
Miyamoto Karin Announcement of J=J independent tour
Fukuda Kanon Her birthday
Yajima Maimi The votives left at the shrine she had made a bicycle pilgrimage to
Kanazawa Tomoko Announcement of J=J independent tour
Suzuki AiriAttaining a daily 1st
Suzuki KanonHaving a reunion with her middle school friends
Wada AyakaPublishing her book
Sayashi RihoCelebrating her junior high graduation with lots of people

Oft mentioned was Berryz' 10th anniversary, particularly at the beginning - mentioned by 3 members of Berryz plus Okai-chan. It more or less was the obvious choice at the time for the Berryz.
The Juices that were asked after the announcement of Juice=Juice's independent tour picked that as well
Momo and Maro both chose their birthdays.
It's graduation season in Japan as well, so four people also mentioned graduation related incidents.
Only one mention of White Day, by Daaishi, despite it being smack in the middle of the relay.
Oda and Eripon commented on the au commercial tie-up.
Reunions were another theme, with MaiMai and Zukki meeting up with old friends, and Maachan finding her beloved Tanasa-tan!
I must say though, if purchasing reasonably priced clothes are all it takes to move Harunan, she should go shopping with Daaishi, I guess. Fuku-chan is probably a no-go though. XD

H!P Blog Relay #32

{We go from anything-goes Suzuki Kanon to Buddha statue and art museum frequenter Ayacho}

Wada Ayaka - 26th March

[Omitted: Ayacho talking about the release event for her book]

And, and、、
Today's HinaFes relay blog post!
In charge of it、myself! Wada Ayaka。

From Morning Musume。'14's Suzuki Kanon-chan、 it got to meー!

Something that moved me recently was、、
What else could it be、
But the publication of 『Otome no Kaiga Annai』through PHP Shinsho-san。

Just as at the beginning of this blog post、
I touched about it in the publication commemoration event、、
But for this book、 the emphasis is on Western paintings、 and I got to make commentary on my beloved paintings。

I graduated from middle school、 and entered into high school、and on the 18th of May 2010, before our début!I went to a Manet exhibition!

I kept the ticket for the art gallery in an album、and written on it、 is the 18th of May (^^)

From that day、 my life changed!

Meeting with Manet、 I was drawn into the world of arts until now!
Still、 from now on、 throughout my life、 I'll be charmed by the world of arts。(^^)

With that、 for me、 I'm currently studying the arts at university。 However、、 such a person like myself came out with a book。

There were a lot of  times when I was insecure、 but there was a lot of cooperation from those around me、、
And such a truly lovely book was completed。

In the process of completing the book、
Since I can see it with my own eyes、 the book had really, really been completed、 I was moved。

Having my own book、since it feels like something from a dream within a dream、 I couldn't believe it。

Recently、、 I went to the bookstore-san and bought my own book、 I was so so glad、 and always、 it'll move me。

And that、 my valuable, valuable treasure、
『Otome no Kaiga Annai』、 its publication has moved me recently。

Because it's done by myself、 since I think that the words are written in a way that's easy to understand、、Definitely、 if a lot of people would read it、 I'd be glad、、
Even if it's just a little、 if you were to know the charms of the arts、、 I'd be really really glad。


And with that、、
The next to be in charge of this will be、、
Morning Musume。'14's Sayashi Riho-chan!

Together with Yasshiiー、 we have activities as Peaberry!

At the HinaFes being carried out this weekend on the 29th、30th、
At the same time、、
We'll be holding a SATOYAMA & SATOUMI  event!

Once again、 it's another chance for Peaberry to be active~~\(^^)/

Look forward to it!

At the HinaFes、 our new song Mystery Night! will have it's first public unveiling!

Ah。The MV、watch it。

Bye bye

{And the relay reaches its last legs, ending at the feet of MM'14's ace, RihoRiho. 
What does Sayashi Riho have to say?}

RihoRiho's Kouhaku vow

{With all this furore about Oda Sakura thinking about dyeing her hair and using an app to try mess around with the hair colour of not just herself but RihoRiho as well,  I thought I'd bring up this report from earlier this year}

Sayashi Riho   Unique vow   A bob cut for MoMusu. '14's Kouhaku appearance!?

Morning Musume.'14's Sayashi Riho (15) took a unique vow.
Setting forth on this year's great goal of making an appearance at the NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen on the very last day of the year, 'If we're able to make an appearance, for the sake of welcoming the new year with a fresh feeling, I would like to lop off my hair,' she declared.

As a bonus, here's a rendition (not mine) of how RihoRiho would look like with a bob cut:

And a short cut:

Ai-chan gives a quick update on Tsunku♂

Takahashi Ai made an appearance on the 'Electrolux Best Cleanest Award' ceremony, where she gave a quick update on how Tsunku♂ seemed to be doing.
She enlightened us on the present conditions of producer Tsunku♂(45), in the midst of battling the early stages of laryngeal cancer. 
 Takahashi, who underwent an operation on both sides of her vocal nodules in May of last year, 'Since I had also undergone a throat operation, we communicated on all sorts of things. It seems that he still pops up at the company (office), and while his treatment is still ongoing, he seems to be in good health,' she reported.
 According to persons concerned, Tsunku♂ is unable to utter any words, but continues his producer work communicating through writing.
Having translated it, I dunno, doesn't seem like she's mentioning too much - her second sentence smacks of hearsay rather than something she'd seen with her own two eyes.
And as always, the reliability of 'persons concerned' is always suspect.
But since I hate to discard the efforts of translation, here you have it.

H!P Blog Relay #31

{Suzuki (Airi) mumbled about something,  and eventually Suzuki (Kanon) picked it up.}

Suzuki Kanon - 25th March

Well then!

The relay blog that's being done within Hello! Project!

It came around to me through Suzuki Airi-san~

Suzuki Airi-san's way of singing、 I loーーーveeee it so much、 and I often listen to Edo no Temari Uta Ⅱ(2012 Shinsei Naru Ver.)!

I'd love to be able to sing as stylishly as Suzuki-san someday!!

And、 Suzuki-san、 she knows about the existence of the weird character Suuーzuki-san that I made up…!

How embarrassing (/ω\)

Well then、 the contents of the relay are…

Something that moved you recently!

That would be…

When I went back to my home town、 my friends who were there told me 'Let's have some sort of class reunion!' ♥

Despite having been separated for 3 years、 it really left a great impression on me that they wanted to meet with me when I was back。

It made me really glad

Everyone's also in high school… thinking about things like that was painful

And that was something that moved me recently

Next will be…

S/mileage's Wada Ayaka-san!!!

The 'yeay!' after the end of the interlude for「Dot Bikini」really enthrals me。 I like it!

Also、 if you look into her eyes during a performance, from a slight distance away, it's beautiful and lovely!

For me、 no matter how hard I try, I can't pull off such a cute voice, so I'm jealous…

What is something that has moved Wada-san recently?? Please tell (*^▽^*)

And with that, Otsukanon ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

{And we're entering the final stretch, since Riho's the only who hasn't been called out, by my count.
A quick skim tells me that Ayacho posts daily at night, and her post for the day doesn't make reference to the relay. There's still a few days left til the HinaFes, so it's all good.
Let's find out what the art critic of H!P, Wada Ayaka, has to say.}

H!P Blog Relay #30

{From one songstress to another, Kanazawa Tomoko passes the blog relay on to the princess of puns, Airi}

Suzuki Airi - 25th March

Ah! That's right
Speaking about the HinaFesー、、、!!

Started by Morning Musume。'14's
Michishige Sayumi-san

The blog linking announcement!
The blog relay has come around to Suzuki's place~ヾ(´・∀・)ノ

How it got to my end、
Was via
Juice=Juice's Kanazawa Tomoko-chan (´ー`)

She al~ways been saying that she looks up to me、 it makes me really really glad >_<

It's difficult for me to display that joy
So it might not really get through
But I'm really really happy~>_<

Before she joined Hello! Project
I thought~ there's a cute girl
And then I was surprised when we got to dance on the same stage ヾ(´・∀・)ノ

KanaTomo-chan's sexy voice
Really has a presence!

It's something that I can't copy。。。

Though she's younger than me、 but since we aren't so different in age、 you know~ it would be great to go for a meal or for a movie someday
That's what I truly feel ヾ(´・∀・)ノ

But still、
I haven't really invited herー lol

I think it would be great if we could reduce the distance between us (´ー`)

Well then、 for me
Something that moved me recently ヾ(´・∀・)ノ

And that is、 our new song
Attaining the 1st place on the daily charts the other day!!

1st place on the dailies after about 4 years。
I'm truly, truly grateful to those who have been supporting us。

Really, thank you so very much

The target is a weekly 1st place
It doesn't mean that we're pursuing nothing but the rankings、 but I definitely do want to be the 1st (´ー`)

For the sake of that、
I need to work harder and harder (´ー`)

Everyday、 I'll study and study ヾ(´・∀・)ノ

There's still more to do in order to reach our dreams, so let's do our bestー

Well then、 I'll be passing the baton to
Morning Musume。'14's、 'Zukki' Suzuki Kanon-chan (´ー`)

As we're both 『Suzuki』
She's a member whom I often communicate with (´ー`)

For me、just like I have Suuーsan。, the original character that I draw、 Zukki too、she has this Suuーzuki-san character

It's very interesting (* ̄∀ ̄)

If we were to do a collaboration someday
I thinkー it would be interesting

Zukki、 whenever we're close
She talks with me with a constant smile on her face、 she's so adorable

The thing I like about her、
Is that in the midst of talking、 her eyes start roaming around occasionally (ノ∀\*)

From a face that's smilingー(´ー`)
To a face that's astonished (・ω・)
It just switches in a moment

It's unspeakably cute

Despite that、 she does things that are really dynamic、 it's surprising and brings out our smiles (´ー`)

That healing character of hers
I want her to carry it through at any age (・∀・)

For Zukki、 what's something that moved you recently?(´ー`)

Please tell us (*u_u)

{From Suzuki to Suzuki, we'll see what the anything-goes character of MM'14, Suzuki Kanon, has to say.
Ayacho and Riho left, by my count.}

H!P Blog Relay #29

{Biking off from Yajima Maimi, we have the tyrant of the Juice}

Kanazawa Tomoko - 23rd March

Ah! Speaking about the HinaFes、
Started by Morning Musume。'14's
Michishige Sayumi-san

The blog linking announcement!
The blog relay has

Made its way from
℃-ute's Yajima Maimi-san
To where Kanazawa is~

It was also written in
Yajima-san's blog post…

Kanazawa often receives
Comments of
「You're similar to Yajima-san!」~

Since Yajima-san is so pretty
And such a beauty

I'm really grateful…
But、 because of that、 somehow
I also feel like I should apologise。

I'd like to become a beauty
Just like Yajima-san someday

…Well then、 with this and that
Kanazawa will write about something that moved her recently

The thing that moved me recently was、

Juice=Juice's first!!!
Independent tour being confirmed

At the event
During the surprise announcement
My head was filled with astonishment and gladness

Tears started flowing
And gushing out…。

But、 the decision to have
An independent tour

It's because there are people
Who are supporting us in all sorts of ways。

To all of you, truly
Thank you so very much。

For Juice=Juice、
The kindness of all of you

I think we'd like to
Pay you back with performances and talks
From the bottom of our hearts。

Since we'll work hard with all our might
From now on too, we'll be begging for your kindness ♡

And now I'll have to pass on
The baton of the relay blog to the next person~~~

Next is………
℃-ute's Suzuki Airi-san

Suzuki-san is
A great senpai that Kanazawa looks up to。

Cute and cool
Her singing is extreーーーーーmely wonderful

「I came across Juice=Juice's billboard!」
She contacted me to say that…

She truly is kind。♡

I'm a bit nervous
So I can't get myself to contact her (T_T)

From now on
I hope that we'll become even more close…☆

…With that said、 Suzuki-san
Please tell us about something that moved you recently

{I kinda guessed that KanaTomo would chose Airi, what with kntm being a big fan and all. By that count, that leaves Riho, Zukki, and Ayacho; and since they've been alternating groups, it'll most likely be 9th gen - Ayacho - 9th gen. Not a bad sandwich, I must say.
Airi's generally a late poster, though she does have a habit of just falling asleep and only posting the next day. Or the staff'll post late. So let's wait for ℃-ute's pre-eminent songstress.
It took Airi over a day, but let's see what she has to say!}

Hama-chan in 10 years time

The topic was: 'Myself in 10 years time'

Hama-chan's spunky answer, 'Become an idol more famous than Morning Musume. '14!!'

Not MM'24 though? Although who knows how their fortunes will be by then.

H!P Blog Relay #28

{From Fukuda Kanon, we get to ℃-ute leader Maimi}

Yajima Maimi - 23rd March

[Comments on the Naruchika live omitted]

Well then、as well as the live performance we had yesterday、 from S/mileage's Fukuda Kanon、 the relay blog has come around to me

I wrote this on Kanon's birthday

But recently 、I've been charmed by Kanon without realising it (*^^*)

She's gradually turning into a pretty onee-san

For me、it truly suits Kanon when she's in a ponytail and has non-dangling-type earrings、that's what I think

She looks like an elegant onee-sama  lol

But、when talking to her、 she's really funny
She's quick-witted
She always makes funny faces backstage… lol

That kind of gap、 it's nice (^-^)

Wellー then
Something that moved me recently、 I'll write about itー(o^^o)

I wrote this in the blog the other day

Ever since I went on a bicycle pilgrimage in 2012 to Shizuoka's Kunōzan Tōshō-gū for a television broadcast in order to pray for the success of our new song

It seems that a lot of Hello! Project fans have made their way to Kunōzan Tōshō-gū

Recently、 when I made a shrine visit to Kunōzan Tōshō-gū、I noticed that it was fully adorned with emas from all of them。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

Even at places that weren't noticeable, there were tonーs (´Д` )

Among them、 there were also also emas from foreigners ∑(゜Д゜)

All of them、 had written for our dreams on the emas  [rather than theirs]

『Everyone's dreams、 our own dreams、 I'd like them to come true』、 I really felt that。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。

For me、 it's quite the power spot (^ν^)

From letters I receive that were posted to the radio、

They followed the same route as I did
It seems that there were even girls who did the bicycle trip from Tokyo Tower to Kunōzan Tōshō-gū…

Who Σ(・□・;) You must be kidding??

You went over that mountain??
Up those stairs??

Oh、 I was really surprised Σ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ

Everyone's love、 it moved me

Truly、 thank you very much for your always warm cheers of support ヽ(;▽;)ノ

With everyone having read that touching story

I'm thinking about the member I'd like to pass this baton on to next ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(^o^)┘

Who will be next??|( ̄3 ̄)|



It'll be Juice=Juice's Kanazawa Tomoko-chan

For meー、 I'm often told that、 Kanazawa-chan and I look really similar (*^^*)

Originally、 even from those times、before Kanazawa-chan had yet to join us、 as part of Hello! Project

Among the many applicants、 one group was selected、 in a project to sing BeriKyuu's 『Chou HAPPY SONG』together on stage

Kanazawa-chan、 she applied for that

And then、 Sharam Q's Makoto-san who was chairing at the time

He said 『You look similar』 (≧∇≦)

And then、 Kanazawa-chan joined in as part of Hello! Project、 and honestly a lot of people said the same thing

But、 but

Kanazawa-chan's sensuality、 and how she's entered with such composure、 and how she possesses this impression that she's a level-headed adult…

Always at my wits' end and flustered, I don't have those aspectsー!(◎_◎;)

So、 I respect her ( ´ ▽ ` )

From now on、 I'd like to now even more and more about the various facets of Kanazawa-chanー

To Kanazawa-chan…
Please tell us a story of being moved recently

{I wonder if the people who took Maimi's route have abs comparable to hers...
See B.G.'s recap of Maimi's epic bike pilgirmage here, sadly incomplete -> Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
As a quick trivia on KanaTomo, since Maimi mentions her getting to sing Chou Happy Song together with them. Well, the story is that KanaTomo's true, noble intention in joining the competition was to get a ℃-ute poster. And then she won that competition. Life, eh?
Maimi's legendary for her long posts. And after her? KanaTomo. We'll see what Kanazawa Tomoko, tyrant of Juice=Juice, has to say.}

Momoko: Just like how a swan is actually struggling under the water, I think we don't want the fans to know.

[sentence fragment]...when [something] what did the fans think?

I thought about it too.
Therefore, when we first found out that the decision had been made, and we would formally be doing it, I wanted to say, 'Nah~ before this we've actually been thinking of wanting to go to Tokyo Dome...'

Isn't it amazing how the idols of the present appeal to you? 'We've worked this hard!' or 'Our dream is to perform at ●●!'
Of course, that's a good thing.
As an idol, that is undoubtedly the correct answer.
But for Berryz Kobo, we're a collection of contrarians (laughs).

Also, though I think this might just be the flow of the times, currently we've often been requested to talk about episodes from backstage.
For us however, we stubbornly would like to only show you what's on the stage.
Just like how a swan is actually struggling under the water, I think we don't want the fans to know.
Of course, I understand that such a stance deviates from the circumstances of the idols of the present, but it might be that it just can't be helped.
At any rate, it's good to let out your regular burden of stress, and be energetic the day after; but in order for it to be said that 'I watched Berryz Kobo's concert and it pepped me up', we'd like to devote our best to when we're onstage.

Definitely, if you're speaking of Berryz Kobo, as idols, we have to keep up with being a merry bunch.
But, I think that's a good point.
If we're determined, we'll be able to do something cool, but we'd like to treasure our playfulness and joyfulness.
Therefore, from now on too... we'll mess around, with all our efforts, seriously!

H!P Blog Relay #27

{Miyamoto Karin, the girl with the green thumb, passes over the baton to Kanon.}

Fukuda Kanon - 22nd March

The relay blog that's been going around has got to me via Juice=Juice's Miyamoto Karin-chan!
Karin wrote a lot about myself in her blog post、 I'm really glad、 I am (;_;)
When we first met、
That not-so-tiny Karin
Has now débuted、 and seeing her stand in the centre of her group, singing magnificently
I think it's really amazing ♪
It would be nice to do something
With the 2 of us as Strawberriez ♪♪
Well、 on the topic of something that moved me recently。
Something that moved myself recently、

Was my birthday event!
You could say that it was a space 
Filled only with the allies who have been cheering me on
It was a really mellow atmosphere
I was able to experience the warmth of all the fans!
While I'm still an idol、
It would be great 
To continue on with birthday events~。
The warmth of all of you moved me!
Well then、 next to tackle this topic、、
Will be ℃-ute's Yajima Maimi-san
Yajima-san is a really really kind person
When there are problems that S/mileage can't resolve、 we would discuss together with Yajima-san
And when I have problems I go and listen to what all of ℃-ute-san has to say
They're reallーy wonderful people!
I'd like to try giving birth to a heart that's as angelic as Yajima-san~!!!!
Her outstanding athleticism is also cool!!!
For Yajima-san、 what is something that has moved you recently?(^-^)
Please tell us!

{Maimi had already posted up her blog post for the day about 10 minutes before Non did. Maimi's not above posting more than once a day though, so we'll see.
Maimi has updated! Let's see what has moved the heart of the angelic Yajima Maimi recently.}

H!P Blog Relay #26

{From Kudou Haruka, we swim towards the girl who was voted cutest idol of the new generation, Miyamoto Karin}

Miyamoto Karin - 21st March

It's Juice=Juice's 3rd year middle schooler、 Miyamoto Karin  =*^-^*=

From Morning Musume。'14's Kudo Haruka-chan、 the relay has come around to me!

Kudou Haruka-chan、 of course I think of you as a good friend!

Though we haven't talked much recently、 when we were in the Hello! Pro Eggs、 we hung out、 and talked about lots of things、 we were really good friends。

Recently Kuduu's getting increasingly taller in height、 rather than being a guy、 she's become reallllly feminine、 I was surprised!

That Kuduu makes my heart skip a beat (*´`)

And recently、 the thing that moved me was、 today、 it was decided that we'd be having an independent tour。

And、 from a lot of people、 we received words of congratulations。

It's really moving。。

Thank you very much。

Besides our independent tour、

There also the HinaFes、 which will be opening on the 29th、30th of Marchっっ!!

Since HinaFes was the first time that Juice=Juice go to put our performance on display、

We're filled with spirit!!

Everyone、 we humbly beg for your support!!

Well then、 tomorrow will be S/mileage's Fukuda Kanon-san!

We often get in contact、 and when we meet she'll allllways mess with me with her whole face in a smile!

When I contacted her to congratulate them on the opening day for their tour、

She sent a picture of fellow S/mileage member Takeuchi Akari-chan as thanks、

I also contacted her on her birthday、

Despite it being Fukuda-san's birthday、

Her reply was、 she was fond of Karin's expression when singing (T ^ T)

I respect Fukuda-san's kindness、 as well as her determination when it comes to fashion or make up!

At the New Year's Hello! Project concert、Fukuda-san singing 「Suppin to Namida。」 solo、 I really entered the world of the song、 and her rhythm and pitching were flawless、 I was listening in ecstasy while standing by in the wings (//∇//)

It would be great if Strawberriez could be revived someday。

It would also be great if we could chat a lot during the HinaFes (^^)

Until the 『HinaFes』、 there's 8 days。 Looking forward to it (^_^)

For this Michishige-san mission、 I'm begging for your kindness!

That's all from Miyamoto Karin (*^▽^)/★*☆♪

{Oddly enough, Karin made two posts today, at roughly the same time. I'm going to chalk it up to the manager batch processing all the blog posts at the once. Must say that it perks me up to know that even Non knows Karin's tastes; a photo of Takle-chan indeed. Kanon does post fairly often, so back to waiting
What does Fukuda Kanon have to say?}
