The New York Concert!!

It’s Ishida Ayumi (`・ω・´)

Our concert in New York

It didn’t feel like we were doing it here for the first time

though most of the people there I was definitely meeting for the first time

it didn’t feel like that either

and though of course at first my heart was racing

the happy faces of those I saw from the stage

and their faces which looked like they were having so much fun :kirakira:
as well as people who supported us while their tears started to fall :kirakira:

Seeing that、it made me happy as well

and so I was able to do a super enjoyable performance!!!

It was such a warm atmosphereー :heart2:

Though since they were Japanese songs
all the words probably didn’t get communicated

but looking at the faces of those enjoying it

it was like, songs really are shared around the world。
and you’re conveying them in something other than words。

It made all kinds of thoughts come to me,

and so even more!I was able to do my best!!

Also something surprising、

were the reactions during the MCs in Japanese

and there were lots of people
who opened their mouths wide with us to sing the songs together with us

When I wonder if because they like Morning Musume。

they’ve learned Japanese

it’s like, the strength of that feelingー!!


that New York concert、

for us, the 10th gen members

marked our 200th solo concert


Being able to approach that memorable concert
in New York

makes me really happy :heart2:

The 10th gen really are awesome!!

For being able to do a takoyaki party with as the 10 of us for our 3rd anniversary

and having our 200th concert in New York

thank you always everyone

Since I’m able to do my best at the concerts too
with all the cheering we receive。

it’s like we were able to do the concerts
because you all come。

Thank you very much

I wanna do a concert in Japan soon as well!

See you ayumin :heart2:

Important Announcement :excite2:

481ac086_640[1]Good morning 
It’s Maimi 

Though I think there are people who already know from this morning’s news

in New York、there was an announcement about the Hello!Project leader by Morning Musume。’14’s Michishige Sayumi-san

that after Michishige-san has graduated from Hello! Project at their tour final on 11/26、

it’s been decided that the new leader of Hello!Project will be ℃-ute’s Yajima Maimi。

Since it’s the first time that Hello!Project’s leader has been from outside of Morning Musume。san、

with Morning Musume。’14’s new members joining、
and Berryz Kobo indefinitely suspending activities in the spring、
and S/mileage’s 3rd gen members joining with their name change…

I really feel the weight of responsibility to work as leader

with all the big changes coming to Hello! Project!

However、as lots of my senpai as leaders up until now have pulled along Hello!Project、

with our most senior group Berryz Kobo
will will be entering indefinite suspension of activities、
along with the ℃-ute members as well, so that I can pull Hello!Project along、

and also、so that I’ll be able to bring to life a new Hello! Project with all the Hello!Project members

I’ll do my best at leader with all my strength :excite2:

Though upon becoming Hello!Project leader I’ll be leading the shouting of our cheer before concerts、

until Berryz Kobo enters their suspension of activities、
I want to mutually do it with Berryz Kobo’s Captain Shimizu Saki-chanー。。。

As a contemporary、and group captain/leader、we’ve been going on while helping each other in times we’re worried or indecisive。

Surely、if Berryz Kobo wouldn’t be entering indefinite suspension of activities、since I think Saki would have been Hello!Project leader and I respect Saki as Captain

Though I’ll become Hello!Project’s leader

I hope the two of us will unify Hello!Project until next spring…!

Tsugunaga Momoko-chan too、who’s our same age,
wrote in her individual blog “Let’s work hard together okay :excite2: ” which was very reassuring!

I’ll also treat my remaining time with Michishige-san preciously、and would like to learn as much as I can about various things as leader for now。

All of you please, in the future as well、warmly watch over Hello!Project and give us your enthusiastic support!

I’m in your care!

Berryz Kobo Concerning their Suspension of Activities Next Spring

Thank you for always supporting Hello!Project、as well as Berryz Kobo。

Though it’s sudden、I have a report for everyone。
As was already announced by the Berryz Kobo membersduring the Hello!Project2014 summer concert『KOREZO!』held on (8/2)、
Berryz Kobo in spring 2015 will be entering an「indefinite suspension of activities」。

Though it’s extremely unfortunate as their producer as well、
the members who have been together for the same length of time since they were little talked about their futures among themselves、and this is the result they came to。
For me、I’ve been watching them grow along the way as I’ve developed many compositions for them。
And so、I think the next steps for them will be a great opportunity。

At the time they almost all debuted as elementary students、
since they were intent with the amazingly pure emotions of「I love to sing!」「I love to dance!」「I wanna try wearing cute clothes!」and jumped into this world、
I think they’ve been able to come to now remaining in the same group the whole time。
I’ve also supported these pure feelings from my heart、
and am very grateful to all the fans who have raised them to this point。

And so, I think it is my duty to keep watching over them as they flap their wings and turn toward their next new dreams。

Furthermore、concerning details about their upcoming schedules or what they’ll do after the suspension of activities、
we’ll announce them as soon as they’re decided。

For now, I’ve reported this right away。
From now on as well、please support this summer’s Hello!Project concert as well as the Berryz Kobo fall tour。

Berryz Kobo.

1c52b59c_640[1]5a2e273a_640[1]Good evening everyone :redribbon:
Today at Nakano Sun Plaza
we had a Hello concert!

There, before going on stage
I heard from our classmates Berryz Kobo
that next spring they would be
indefinitely suspending activities.

Even now I can’t get it straight in my head, and
just keep thinking over and over… it’s so sad.
Also, our memories from these 13 years are spinning around in my head :sob:

Everything from when we all passed the auditions until now.
The day we stood on stage for the first time
The day we debuted.
The days the members fought together
The day I found there were people who supported me.
The days I received energy from all the fans.

Happy things,
things from days I cried.
There were countless times I felt hurt.
Studies and vacations,
there were so many things I endured.
We’ve properly gotten through
these 13 years.

Though I thought a day like this would come sometime,

nevertheless I didn’t think the announcement
would be as quick as this :aseru:
and was surprised so much that I thought my heart would jump,
but it was something Berryz Kobo decided
after talking among them all.
When I hear that, I think from my heart that I want to support Berryz Kobo until the end.

And so, especially since they’re classmates,
I think that ℃-ute
understands what Berryz Kobo are feeling more than anyone.

So until the end,
I want to support Berryz Kobo
and send them off with a smile.

Everyone, from now on as well,
please support Berryz Kobo :guu: !

A Report.

I have a report from us、
Berryz Kobo。
Though it was reported at
today’s Hello!Project live as well、
Berryz Kobo, as of next spring,
will be entering an
「indefinite suspension of activities」。
It’s the result of discussion among all the members over and over
since about a year ago。
These 10 years, for us,
are a really really valuable treasure。
Since Berryz Kobo was our entire youth、
of course the fans、
but also everyone connected to us and around us、our family、our friends、
while really getting so much support from them,
we’ve been able to get to this point。
We thought that for all those precious people,
「Berryz Kobo」is something that if it went away could never be replaced
so without breaking up, we decided on the words
「indefinite suspension of activities」。
I’m sorry
for surprising you with the sudden announcement…。
I’m overflowing with so many different emotions now、
and remembering the time of our debut
the fun things、and the tough things、
lots of different feelings have been revived。
I’m so ve~ry happy
I became a member of「Berryz Kobo」♡♡♡
I’m grateful。
Thank you so very very much。
Since until we suspend activities next spring、
I’ll do my best with all my strength
continuing on from now as well
please support us!

To Everyone

Good evening ♪

Today, 8/2、it was announced at the Hello!Project live that we、Berryz Kobo, would be entering an 「indefinite suspension of activities」next spring。
Sorry for surprising you with the sudden announcement…
We all talked about this when discussing our future since about a year ago…
The 「indefinite suspension of activities」is the result of all that discussion。
Berryz Kobo has been the entirety of our youth。
It’s so very very precious, and we love it so incredibly much… and more than that the members I love ♡(≧▽≦) are a valuable treasure ♡
If we said we’re「breaking up」 it would feel like Berryz Kobo would be disappearing、
so we thought it’d be so lonely~。
We thought that Berryz Kobo was something that for all the fans and for us was something that couldn’t be replaced, so instead of breaking up, we chose the words「indefinite suspension of activities」。
We debuted on March 3rd 2004、
so this year it has become 10 years。
I’m really full of feelings of gratitude that we’ve been able to continue like this。
So many things happened in these 10 years~
We were all in elementary school when we debuted, huh~
Since that time miya’s had impact as a brazen blonde-haired girl, right⁈ lol (^^)
We fought about so many pointless things。
We did nothing but compete for treats~lol
When I think about it、there are way too many memories…
And now、
all of us have come of age!
We’ve become adults, huh (^.^)
Through lives and events and such、all the cheering from all the fans was what supported the hearts of Berryz Kobo as well as me, Natsuyaki Miyabi ♡
I’m really really thankful。
That we’ve been able to come this far is thanks to all our many fans。
I love you allーーー♡♡♡
Since our Budoukan has been decided、we’ll keep doing our best as Berryz and like Berryz until next spring。
So continuing on、please support Berryz Kobo!

Though you’ve already been commenting and I think there are many who already know、、、At a live at the memorable place where we stood on stage as 『Berryz Kobo』10 years ago on 1/14、Nakano Sun Plaza、we announced that as of next spring we would be begin suspending activities indefinitely。

I’m sorry for surprising you with the sudden announcement。
Concerning this、the members have talked over and over again since about a year ago。
With all 7 of us now having come of age、this is the conclusion which has come out after we thought about our futures while continuing to have mutual respect for each other。
As for why we’re suspending activities instead of breaking up、since Berryz Kobo was our entire youth, it holds a very special place in our hearts。
Since if we said we’re「breaking up」、it would feel lonely like Berryz Kobo would be disappearing、for all of us、and for all the fans、it’s something we thought from now on should never be replaced、and so instead of a breakup we chose the words「indefinite suspension of activities」。
Thanks to all the fans’ cheering up until now、we’ve been able to keep going as Berryz Kobo for 10 years。
Thank you very much。
Also、in the remaining half year, we can’t miss all your support!!!

With our September Budoukan、the fall tour、as well as new song releases planned、I’ll make the time I can do activities as Berryz Kobo precious、but since I’ll also be continuing to properly do my best、please don’t take your eyes away from Berryz Kobo!!!


In the remaining time、I want to keep making wonderful memories with everyone!!




Thank you for supporting Berryz Kobo‼︎
