Thank you. Berryz Koubou.
Thank you for all of the fun times, all of the joy.
As a kouhai, as a fan
there are so many things
I learned and gained
from Berryz Koubou that I can’t count them all.
The one who I got along with most
Sugaya Risako-san. Rilo.
Rilo helps me with so many things.
There are too many things I hate or get upset about, and when I cried every day because I didn’t know what to do about anything, she was always there to support me… She gave me advice and listened to my complaints… Rilo once told me that she didn’t care if Maro ever turned her back on her, and that has stuck with me.
Of course there has never been a time now or ever that I have betrayed her, but it makes me so happy that she would say that to me (T . T)
I can do anything if it’s for Rilo! I really think she changed me.
My eternal oshimen
Kumai-san is so kind and warm, she has so much charm, and we talked a lot when we had the same role in Warera Jeanne.
Practicing singing with her and going over our lines together was like a dream (´・_・`)
There were times during Hello!Con that I would get depressed and cry, and she would be the first to bring me a tissue and wipe my tears, and I realized what a truly beautiful person she is inside.
I will continue to support Kumai-san’s activities with all I’ve got.
If I ever become a big company chief I’m hiring Kumai-san as a brand model (T . T)
I hope that I’ll be able to repay her for her kindness in the future somehow….
Hello!Pro’s fashion leader
The first time I met her I randomly had this image of her being a gyaru and thought maybe she might be scary? But she’s completely different, she’s super duper funny, she always has tons of people around her, she’s so stylish and cute, and she was Hello!Pro’s fashion leader♪♪
Earlier, she gave me a cute, trendy mask as a gift.
I was so happy, I’ll treasure it. I’m also really looking forward to any music-related activity from her!
The always 100% energetic
When you’re near her you feel this really wonderful power coming off of her.
She can make everyone smile with one word, she’s at peace in her surroundings, and she can make you relax.
I always think about how adored she is by the members and staff and tons of people～.
She’s older than me and is my senpai, but I love how bright and carefree and adorable she is (・ω・)ノ
The kind mother
I feel calm and relaxed whenever she’s nearby, and she has an aura that brings people together, and she really does seem like a mother, but she’s able to perform on stage so well and her MCs are always on point, and that gap in her personality is what I fell in love with..♪
She’s also Cupid to Kumai-san and me♪ She’s always trying to get us to take pictures together, and I’m grateful for her kind heart and compassion.
Everyone’s idol, Momochi
She’s so smart and she’s so quick at responding to things, I’m always trying to learn from her and study her talking.
She is a sparkling super idol normally, but she’ll tell you just like it is and be strict with you, and she’s a senpai I can respect!
She had to participate in a Country Girls song at the last minute, but she did the dance perfectly and remembered the formations and everything, which stayed with me.
Please continue to take care of me!
The reliable captain
I think it must have been very difficult for her being in the position of Captain, but every time I see her she looks so perfect and is looking out for everyone around her, her dancing is virtually flawless, and I will always look up to her for that!
We did an MC together at Hello!Con, and she danced a little to the intro part of S/mileage’s Ii Yatsu, and it was so awesome!
I remember being so moved!
If she releases a dance instruction DVD or something I will definitely buy it (>_>)
I really, truly love Berryz Koubou.
My youth is Berryz Koubou!!!
