What a persistent gaze

12 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:55:32.85
Well… I'll forgive this

3 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:49:26.10
She always looks at her in the same way
It's already become a skill

5 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:50:35.55
What, there's even more? lol

6 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:50:54.68
Feels like she's plotting something in her imagination

7 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:51:51.63
Her gazes in the top-middle and bottom-right ones are extremely intense

8 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:52:24.89
This is an entertaining series

9 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:52:25.35
They've increased, huh?

11 :名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/:2017/02/09(木) 21:55:20.57
She was looking at Momochi at the recent HinaFes lottery

Twitter Tidbits: KanaTomo shares a scary story

Juice=Juice  Live Around 2017 ~Next One Special~
Nagoya concert 
13th May 2017

KanaTomo: I've got something to talk about. Something scary happened to me recently.

Yukanya: You're scaring me already!

KanaTomo: I had the day off, and was taking a nap when my phone rang. And what's more, it was an unknown number.

Yukanya: I'm scared!

KanaTomo: I normally wouldn't pick up an unknown number. But I answered since I was half-asleep. When I said 'Hello', the person on the other end said, 'Hello. I got a call from you. So I'm returning the call'! It was a woman!

Yukanya: This is scary, it's scary!

KanaTomo: I told her that she had probably got the wrong number. But when I told her that I was Kanazawa, she replied that she was Kanazawa too! Of course I was scared. So I told her I would check and get back to her. I hung up, and checked with the LINE group for my family and relatives. The whole Kanazawa clan was informed that something strange had happened to me. And then my mother replied, 'Me too'. I was like, 'Just now?' And she was like, 'It was just now for me too'. And then, she went, 'So it was you!' (laughs). Apparently in my half-awake state, I somehow deleted my mother's number from my address book. Looks like I was unable to recognise the voice of my mother, who's taken care of me for 21 years. (laughs) My mother didn't have my number on her phone either. (laughs) Tomorrow's Mother's Day, so all of you too, please convey your gratitude.

Sayubee: Of all people to say that!

Yamaki Risa's 'Member I'd like to have as a girlfriend if I were a guy' ranking

More from this ranking series:

―― Well then, to keep up the suspense, we'll get to the first and sixth place at the end. So please start from the fifth place.

Yamaki 5th place is Funaki Musubu-chan! I gave this question some serious thought. Having put some serious thought into it... I couldn't imagine going out with a thirteen year old. In that sense, she's fifth.

―― I see. Well then, please go on to 4th place.

Yamaki 4th place is Morito Chisaki-chan.

Morito Ehh!

Yamaki This is... I think that this may have come as a bit of a surprise for a lot of people... If I had to put Chii in a role, I'd like to have her as a sister, a family member. Since she's innocent. If I was her boyfriend, I'd show her off. There are positives to that, but if pushed to say, I prefer that loving, sisterly mood, like 'Ah, you've done it again!' So, 4th.

―― Morito-san, what do you think? Being at fourth place. 

Morito I'm a bit shocked! Because I thought I'd rank higher... Well, but family is closer than a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, right? And so, I get that Risa-chan thinks that she'd be fine with me being close-by... So, I'm like, whatever!

Yamaki I'd like to have you near me!... I feel like you help keep me on solid ground.

Ozeki Isn't that strange? isn't that what you'd call a pet...?

Inaba Like you'd just want to keep on squeezing her.

Morito I'm human, you know? A human being.

Concerning Ice Cream & My Jiggly

Thank you very much for your support for Ice Cream & My Jiggly and my translations.

I would like to announce that after the 15th of August 2017 - my 4th cake day as a translator - I will no longer be updating this blog.

With the disbandment of ℃-ute and the graduation-cum-retirement of Tsugunaga Momoko, all of the Hello! Project Kids have left Hello! Project. Given the H!P Kids skew of this blog, this means that the majority of translations on this blog pertain to now-graduated members. With that in mind, it feels like high time to close the book on this blog.

Through Special Generation, Berryz were in a way my entry into the world of J-Pop idols. My budding interest in them and their contemporaries ℃-ute led me to start this idol blog, named after a now decade-old V-u-den song and my favourite Pokemon. Looking for avenues to level up my Japanese, I started posting translations roughly four years ago. Translating has since turned into an immensely enjoyable hobby for me. But still, all good things - like the H!P Kids - come to an end.

Leading up to the 15th of August, I plan to clear out my drafts and hopefully tie up some remaining loose ends.

As for the site, after the 15th of August, it will be left as-is. Ice Cream & My Jiggly was the entirety of my late twenties. To shut it down would feel like the disappearance of something that's important to me. It would be sad. To me, it's something that's irreplaceable. So for as long as Blogger continues to keep on providing free hosting, this blog will be up.

Thank you for all your support.
