Twitter Tidbits: Juice=Juice confess to Tsugunaga Momoko

Confessions for Berryz Kobo、 day 6。

Whatever I say, I'm secure in the knowledge that she'll give a reply ♩ Whatever it is, I love the serious Momochi-senpai ♥ (Miyazaki)

Her pinkies really do stick out、 you'd expect no less!♡I respect how fast she is on her feet(Kanazawa)

Whenever I see Tsugunaga-san、 she's really cool as Momochi-senpai。 But I've silently seen the serious side she doesn't show (Takagi)

I won't forget the sensation of touching the Momochi Musubi at the Naruchika。 I love Tsugunaga-san ❤️(Miyamoto)

Always the idol, her pinkies are constantly raised。 Her professionalism is amazing
That's what I think ♡(Uemura)

For the 6th day today、 it's the eternal idol Tsugunaga Momoko。 If we stepped out of line, Yurushite-nyan。 Tomorrow there's a Berryz Kobo Matsuri too!

Confessions of love to Berryz Kobo, day 4.

Today, it's Berryz Kobo's number 1 Cool Beauty, Sudo Maasa.

I love that difference

Kanazawa: She's really kind, and Sudo-san is always candid when talking to us! I love you ♥︎♡

With T-shirt scraps, this senpai quickly made them into pseudo-sunvisors, you'd expect no less! lol

The name of H!P 8 person new unit is 「Kobushi Factory」 Elegance and strength

On the 25th, the name of the 8 person new unit under female idol collective 「Hello! Project」 has been decided as 「Kobushi Factory」。 The formation of the new unit was announced at the New Year's performance that was held on the 2nd of January at Nakano Sunplaza in Tokyo。

 For the origin of the unit's name、 there is the 「elegance」 of the magnolia kobushi、 the flower of Japanese origin which blooms with an abundance of white flowers、 informing you of the advent of spring、 while at the same time the name has the meaning of the desire for the group to possess a 「strength」 that is symbolised by a 「clenched fist (nigirikobushi)」、 those are the thoughts behind it。 「Friendship」「Trust」「Welcome」 in the language of flowers、 by mutually deepening their 「friendship」 and having 「trust」、 they aim to be a group who are 「welcoming」。

 Also、 the 「Factory」 includes the meaning of inheriting the soul of 「Berryz Kobo (Berryz Factory)」 that will go on hiatus。

 The name selection included Shimizu Saki (23) who will assume the role of 「Hello! Project Advisor」 after the hiatus of 「Berryz Kobo」。

 「Kobushi Factory」 is composed of 8 people、 Fujii Rio (15) Hirose Ayaka (15) Nomura Minami (15) Ogawa Rena (14) Hamaura Ayano (14) Taguchi Natsumi (14) Wada Sakurako (13)Inoue Rei (13)。 With the exception of Fujii who is in her 1st year of senior high, all of them are in middle school。  At9 p.m. today on the broadcast of the Hello! Project Official  WEB video programme 「HaroSute」, a video of the moment of the name announcement will be aired。

 From the 26th of March at Ikebukuro's 「BIG TREE THEATER」 in Tokyo,  the curtains will be raised for 「Kobushi Factory」's musical 「Week End Survivor」 、 and there will be advance sales of their first DVD single 「Nen ni ha Nen/ Survivor」 limited only to the venue。

Confessions of love towards Berryz Kobo, day 2!

Miyazaki: The happy expression on your face when you're doing your 'Kumaranai Hanashi' on radio is really lovely
I love the way you speak so gently

Kanazawa: Kumai-san has an outstanding figure, and it's amazing how she looks lovely no matter what she's wearing ♥ ♥

Uemura: Since I made my debut, I've often been told that 'You resemble Kumai-san!', which makes me really happy! When you've got bangs like you do now, or when they're parted, both hairstyles suit you! ♥

Today we're sending confessions to the Sky Tree of the Idol World, Kumai Yurina!

Takagi: A senpai who's gentle and really easy to talk to. When our eyes meet, she gives me a smile!

Miyamoto: At the Naruchika MCs, she looks up things about the place we're at, which is amazing, and I respect her for that! I wish I could have her figure! Kumai-san, I love you ♥

Bonus Maro!

A Direct Hit to the new members! - Hamaura Ayano (From Top Yell March 2015 Edition)

Hama-chan: 'Overthrow Country! I'd like us to have a spirited fight!!'
I'd like the 8 of us, with personalities all-over-the-place, to join forces

Still without songs nor outfits, and even without a group name, I think it would be difficult for Hama-chan to explain in-depth about the group. Having said that, what sort of group would you like to become, what are your aspirations beyond this?

I'd like us to be a high-spirited group! As you say, the current state of the group is that nothing's started, but we've got a lot of girls in a world of their own, with preferences that are all over the place, each and every one of us has their own individual character. While that's something good, something I'd like to treasure, I'd like to show how energetic we are, with matching smiles. It'd be the same for songs as well, I'd be happy if we could do cheerful songs. Juice=Juice does mature songs, but over here we've got lots of child-like members (laughs).

From now on, all of you are in this group of newcomers, would you say that your eyes are on a major début?

Yes, that would be the case.

Speaking about newcomers, your members are have experience from the H!P Kenshuusei and Nice Girl Trainees. Is there pressure on you, due to expectations from your ready-to-deploy status?

On things like pressure, I feel that it seems to feel that way. It's just that, honestly, I don't want to lose to Country Girls! We came up at around the same time, and I think we'll be compared, no matter what. We're really aware of it.

Oh! The aggressive Colonel Hama-chan has appeared.

It's just that the other party have amazing people with them, like Satoda Mai-san and Tsugunaga Momoko-san. They're really strong. They're really strong, but I'd like the 8 of us to bring our forces together and set our sights on 'Overthrowing Country Girls!'.

That was sarcasm, right? With the Tsugunaga-san that you love and respect in the other camp, you can't bring them down......

Of course I love and respect Tsugunaga-san, but......

That's right (laughs). This time, 20 new people have joined Hello! Project, are there any members that you're particularly concious of?

Murota Mizuki-chan, I guess. Her singing and dancing was at a high level even when she was in the Kenshuusei, so I really feel like I don't want to lose to her.

Well then, it still hasn't been decided at this time, but personally for Hamaura-san, what expectations do you have about your group name?

I think it might be nice if it was a name that incorporated kanji, hiragana, katakana, English, and symbols.

Everything! Please don't say such preposterous things (laughs).

Sorry (laughs). But, I'd like a group that incorporates all sorts of factors. Even now, I still can't make any predictions about how we'll turn out, but I'd like to expand our possibilities.

I'm shy、 so that makes me really happy!!

「Is It Just Me?」

That's the theme…

Every day, in front of my house, I look at the stars, and count them, wondering if they've increased compared to yesterday~

HELLO, this is Nonaka Miki!
The blog relay came around to me yesterday from ANGERME's Nakanishi Kana-san!!

Nakanishi-san is kind and funny
It made me happy when she started talking to me, as I'm shy and the type of person who doesn't really take the initiative to talk to people!

And what's more, she praised my singing
That made me happy~ But I'm still bad at it, so I'll do my best!! I always think that, when Nakanishi-san sings 『Otome no Gyakushu』 in her low voice, it's really cool~

”Berryz Kobo”, the idols loved by Thailand, interviewed in Bangkok

Berryz Kobo have held 2 performances so far in Bangkok、 they've covered a song by Thai national singer Bird McIntyre (『cha cha SING』)、 they're known to be idols deeply acquainted with Thailand。 These girls have announced that they'll enter an indefinite hiatus on the 3rd of March 2015、 and even the fans in Thailand were enveloped in grief。

In the midst of that、 it was announced that the members of Berryz Kobo would be making an appearance starring as themselves in the Thai film 「「The One Ticket Tua Por… Reak Por(The One Ticket ตัวพ่อ...เรียกพ่อ)」、 to the great joy of fans。 In addition to that、 it was announced that they would be holding a live event 『Berryz Kobo NARUCHIKA 2015 in Bangkok』、 a huge, final gift for the Thai fans。

The day before the concert on the 3rd of February、 we heard what all the members had to say in a hotel in Bangkok。

2015 HinaFes Blog Relay - #10 Ishida Ayumi

The blog relay passes from the ikemen baseball fanatic Takeuchi Akari to Ishida Ayumi.

(Original blog post in Japanese)

Yesterday, the blog relay came along to me
From ANGERME's Takeuchi Akari-san

Firstly、 about the blog relay

In preparation for the 『HinaFes』 on the 28th, 29th of March、

With the theme of 「Is It Just Me・・・?」
It's a project that gets passed along blogs、 from members of Hello! Project to members of Hello! Project 

It was started on the 6th of February by H!P leader
℃-ute's Yajima Maimi-san 、

It's finally come along to me

Saturday, 14 February 2015

Leadership: Yajima Maimi (CD & DL Data, August 2014)

Leadership: The knowledge of a Leader

This month: Yajima Maimi (℃-ute)

In this serialisation, we seek knowledge from the leaders of female idol groups.
In the 4th of this series, we present Yajima Maimi from ℃-ute, who have entered their 10th year since their formation in June, and will be performing at the Nippon Budokan for the second time on the coming September 10th (Wed).

℃-ute has celebrated your 9th anniversary since your formation, but at which point in time did Maimi-san become the leader?

I can't remember (laughs). About half a year after Arihara Kanna-chan joined, I was told that the leader should introduce her at the concert, and I have a recollection of thinking 'Eh? Me, the leader?'. At the time, I wasn't the oldest, and there wasn't a time when I had been called out to act as the leader.

How did you handle it when you were given the leadership position? For example, were you happy, or was it something you didn't want?

I couldn't think about anything at first. Whenever we have an announcement to make or a press interview, the leader has to be the first to speak, so I was nervous. But at other times, there wasn't really the sense of me being the leader in particular. When articles about ℃-ute appear in newspapers, 'Leader Yajima Maimi...' is often written, but I don't think there's anything beyond that.

2015 HinaFes Blog Relay - #9 Takeuchi Akari

And on the Gekkan Entame-san that went on sale 30th January、 the 2 of us talk about Berryz Kobo

Someday, the 2 of us would like to sing Berryz Kobo-san's songs at something like a Hello Shop! event~ It's something that we've talked about

2015 HinaFes Blog Relay - #4 Miyamoto Karin Miyazaki Yuka

While Eripon initially putted the baton to Miyamoto Karin, her new short-cut must have left her vulnerable, and she's currently recovering from the flu. While we pray that she gets well soon, picking up the baton in her stead is Juice=Juice leader Miyazaki Yuka!

(Original blog post in Japanese)

This was started by
Yajima Maimi-san from ℃-ute

The HinaFes Relay Blog…

And yesterday Morning Musume。’15′s
Ikuta Erina-san

Passed the baton to
Miyamoto Karin-chan!

But、 Karin-chan
Is currently recovering from the flu

So to make up for her
I’ll be taking up the baton
As leader

2015 HinaFes Blog Relay - #3 Ikuta Erina

H!P's youngest has brought the baton to the driving range and handed it off to Morning Musume。’15's Ikuta Erina! Will she score a hole-in-one in your heart?

(Original blog post in Japanese)

The HinaFes relay。。。

It came around to me from Ozeki Mai-chan!!!!

There's a theme。。。

It seems that the theme is 「Is It Just Me?。。。」!!

And so。。。

For Erina、 it generally takes me 2 minutes from seeing an item at a store to decide whether or not I should buy it。。。

But that's normal, right!?

How about that!?

At the HinaFes、 I'll do my best so that Ozeki Mai-chan will say that I'm funny this year tooーーー!!!!


Next、 Miyamoto Karin-chan, who I've recently promised to hang out with!!

Juice=Juice's comments before their 2nd anniversary concert

● Miyazaki Yuka(From Ishikawa Prefecture ・ 20/Leader)
We've always been aiming to go around all 47 prefectures through our livehouse tour、 and meeting fans from various localities、 I think that it would be great if someday, we could perform a concert at a venue where everyone's gathered up in one shot。

● Kanazawa Tomoko (From Saitama Prefecture ・ 19/Subleader)
With the graduation of Michishige Sayumi-san who led at MCs、 and the impending graduation of Tsugunaga Momoko-san, I was thinking that 「Next it'll be me!」、 but when I heard stories about her joining in Country Girls as well, I was like 「Ah、 Tsugunaga-san will be around, huh……」 (laughs) I'd like to polish my talking skills to the level that I won't lose to Tsugunaga-san、 and not be told that I'm bad at talks!

● Takagi Sayuki(From Chiba Prefecture ・ 17)
As a year with huge changes happening in H!P、 we can't just continue to rely on our freshness、 so I'd like to do my best to have performances you can't tear your eyes from, that'll make you like us。Ishikawa Prefecture's Yuzu Shoujo Cider was delicious!

● Miyamoto Karin (From Chiba Prefecture ・ 16)
My hair's gradually gotten shorter since our début (laughs) It's the shortest in H!P。 I think that it's nice to have an impact、 and I'll do my best in 2015 having done this image change! Now there's a short-cut boom、 I'd like to aim to be a stand-out presence within that。

● Uemura Akari (From Osaka Metropolitan Area ・ 16)
I'd like to do my best to improve myself。 We get to go around the country through our tour、 and we get to eat delicious things、 so I've gained meat at places where I shouldn't……  I think I'd like to maintain a figure that'll look good whenever anyone sees it、 and I'd like my nails and such to be pretty、 always appearing perfect。

1001 Nights - The 16th Night: 100 Questions to Yajima Maimi (Part 2)

Continuing on the 1001 Nights series of Hello! Shop events, it's H!P Leader Yajima Maim's turn at-bat! Held on the 30th of January 2015, the event's theme was '100 questions to Yajima Maimi'. The event's Twitter hashtag was .

This second part will cover questions 51 and beyond. The first 50 questions were already covered in a previous update.

Virtually all of these answers came from @tozamasan, so I'll just be linking his tweets in the question number. Here's a log of tweets of the event.

Again, usual disclaimer applies - These come from tweets that summarise what Maimi talked about during the event, and they're being translated, which only adds to the miscommunication potential.

For translations of previous entries in this series of Hello! Shop talk shows, see KanaTomo's (My translationJicchan's on the 50 questions), Sayu's (excerpts from Wota in Translation), Fuku-chan's (50 questions), Airi's (first partsecond part), and Captain & Miyabi's.
