Berryz Koubou Ikubee!*

Yesterday、March 3rd,
I headed for Nippon Budoukan。


I went to see Berryz Koubou-san’s
last LIVE。


I had seen Berryz-san singing
at every Hello!Con
but since it had been a while since I’d seen one of their solo LIVEs
before it started, I totally didn’t feel as though
today is their final LIVE”。


From before the LIVE started
everyone in the venue was chanting
and I got goosebumps from feeling that sense of unity。


When it started、and the members came out onto the stage、
and I could see Momochi
I felt like crying somehow。Lol


All seven of them
were truly shining;
they were cute and cool,
and…in any case, they were all
shining, in their individual colors。


Since their formation, I watched them on TV,
watched their PVs and mimicked the dances,
bought their albums and listened to them countless times…
The truth is、that’s how much I loved Berryz Koubou。


That’s why yesterday、
I was really happy to be able to hear some nostalgic songs as well
and during songs like “Maji Bomber!” and “Rival”
my body ended up moving of its own accord。


It really was a fun LIVE!!


Also、the thing I thought most of all was、


“How cool Momochi is…。”


Without shedding tears
she sang and danced with a bright smile
and her MC was interesting too.
She was often looking at the members,
and I thought, from the bottom of my heart,
“Momo-chan really is amazing”。


When Berryz Koubou’s indefinite suspension of activities
was announced at the summer Hello!Con
about 30 minutes before the LIVE started、
Momo-chan called and told me she had really wanted to tell me in person
but she couldn’t because the timing never matched up.
She said “It ended up being over the phone, but I’ll tell you now”。


At that time、
feeling lonely and thinking, “Are you really telling me this?”
I cried, happy that she had called me,
even though she was busy preparing for her performance。


I cried a lot during yesterday’s LIVE
but after it ended and I came home
a feeling of loneliness gradually welled up inside me。


For me, Berryz Koubou
is the reason I love Hello!Project,
and I also admired them。


Thank you for continuing to sing
for these 11 years。


Captain said this、but
Berryz Koubou is eternal!!


*TN: “Berryz Koubou Ikube!” is a catchphrase Berryz often says. It basically means “Let’s go, Berryz Koubou!”

Merry Chirstmas☆ ° (sic)



My final production of the year
has wrapped up ^ ^



It was intense。


Being separated from Tokyo for the first time in a while
in a hotel life for about three weeks。



Moreover, it was in a place where the coldness I’m bad with
was strong, but I got stronger!Lol



I was able to talk a lot
with all of my costars
and I’ve become able to talk with
the staff whenever we met
for filming
so I had fun and learned things!



I want to hurry up and let you know what it is!


And、I want to see it soon!!



I might be able to give the announcement at the beginning of the new year?!



I worked hard
on my last production of this year,
my last acting work of the year ^ ^





In the end I held out
and didn’t get Duffy’s Christmas costume ( ̄▽ ̄)



It’s an aim for the costume to come out next year, so、、、Lol



May you have a lovely Christmas ✨

Today, two years ago



I announced to everyone、”I’m doing LoVendoЯ with these members”っ‼︎




※Today I’ll be using “LoVendoЯ”、rather than the name in katakana (a form of Japanese syllabary; how she usually writes the name)。Lol




Two years is like, “It’s so looong” and in a flash, it goes by in the blink of an eye。



Two years ago, I hadn’t thought we would be able to get tie-ins like we are now, put out albums, appear on TV,  do a battle of the bands, or that I would get along this well with the membersー





















We also took a bunch of picturesー




Marin’s hair color is extremely different, huhー lol




Because everyone is cheering us on, it makes me glad that I’ve been doing this for two years up to just now, without returning home to Fukuoka!









Because we’ll do our best, with the four of us getting along and having fun from now on too




Oh yeah!


Reina, you know!


Even though I’m the type who always forgets the day I debuted、and I would realize it when Sayu told me


isn’t this time remarkable?!Isn’t it amazing?!


Leader Reina-chan

Sleeping soundly

Good morning 4378407[1]


I’m on my way from Okayama to Fukuokaaaーーーーa


Today I have two performances in my home town of Fukuoka


My Okayama hotel, you knowー


it was somehow spacious and neat, and I was able to sleep


Maybe Reina can’t sleep if the room is narrow and the lights are weirdly darkー :aseru: :aseru:


May today also be a day of roaring laughter lol lol

Thank you

I read your comments, everyone :heart:


Thank you for writing so many‼︎


Although you say things like “Usually, Reina has nothing but opponents all around, on MUSIC+ and the like。”、、Lol


So I have even this many fans、and staff members、and friends who are supporting meー


I thought that once again‼︎


It’s been said that my appearance won’t change


but my way of thinking, and things like that, have changed little by little。


But I still can’t live alone。


From now on, though I’m this sort of Reina


please support me, everyone。



And from now on, Reina will do her best to be able to make everyone smile

Sorry for forcing it :aseru: :aseru:



And sorry to those of you who made the shinkansen (bullet train) at the last minute due to the time :aseru: :aseru: :aseru:


So today




as presenters 4378407[1] yup







Time Machine #3 (a comedy duo) came



Another meeting after a long time



Although we’re from different offices (LOL) they came especially for me



Of course, these are the two people who handle Reina well






Thank you very muchっ :up: :up: :up:


Right now I’m in a commotion



and there’s a commotion inside my head too, so if there are things I want to convey again, I’ll tell you after I calm down :raburabu: :raburabu: :raburabu:



Thank you all


I love you5249[1]5249[1]5249[1]

It doesn’t feel like the end of the year

Even though it is already the second half of December
somehow it doesn’t feel like the year is ending.


Why is that?(´・ω・`)


I guess it’s because I’m closing out this year
in a rare event, with acting work?!


Nah、I still don’t know, though ( ̄▽ ̄)





My bangs have grown quite a lot。


When the production I’m doing now is over
maybe I’ll lighten my hair a bit??
I’m thinking about that again
like I always do(lol)


I saw on the news
that the first snow of the season was observed in Tokyo。


The other day、
I already encountered the first snow
at a Patlabor event in Fukuokaー!Lol


And、some days ago
it piled up and piled up
and I also saw a heap of snow that had been shoveled up!Lol





Even though I’m feeling winter terribly、
I don’t feel Christmas or the end of the year at all(Lol)


I’ll take a slow bath
and work hard tomorrow too ∩^ω^∩

(*TN: Thanks to eri for translating some of this.)
