Hall final


Today was the last Gradation performance

@ Osaka Hall!o(`ω´ )o

With 32 performances, it’s been a pretty hard tour、so I’m feeling a great sense of accomplishment。♡♡♡

Throughout this tour、I feel that many people were able to watch me grow。

I’m very sorry that I was absent halfway through (´・ω・`)

Of course there was some anxiety。
But、all of us worked through it together。

I mean、I think everyーーーone was anxious the first night ?Lol

The staff, the fans, and all of us members。
Even though I did feel anxious- to an embarrassing degree- I think I was able to perform with confidence。

We went to prefectures where Morning Musume hadn’t performed in 10 years and had the privilege of gaining many valuable experiences along the way。

「It’s okay to cry。
Surely、it will make you stronger。
Be confident。Because you ARE Morning Musume。」

A long time ago、my mother said those words to me。

I’m going to keep working hard so I can live up to everyone’s expectations。
So、please keep an eye on that\(^_^)/


To everyone。
Thank you!Thank you!Kuduuー?Kanduuー!*

Nighty night\(^o^)/

「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
Alright!Time to switch gears!

(´-`).。oO Good flavor


Today I worked hard at rehearsal\(^_^)/


During lunch break in between rehearsals, we all gather around the table and eatっ。

It’s noisy and fun♫

Oh、that reminds me, Sasaki Rikako passed the Hinafes blog relay to me!

Rikako-chan tells me she loves meっ♡♡♡
It makes me so happy to hear that from my juniors!!
Rikako-chan、thank you(*v.v)。

The topic this time is 「Am I the only one who _?」

My “Am I the only one who_?
is that my nose runs when I apply eye drops 。Lol

Am I really the only one this happens toー?is something I’ve wondered for a long time。Lol
I’ve also wondered if maybe、I’m not applying the eye drops correctly?!!

I wonderー?

Now、I’m going to pass the baton to Juice=Juice’s Kanazawa Tomoko-chan!
Kanatomo is super pretty、and her bob cut is cute and suits her well!

Well、nighty night\(^o^)/

「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
Singing is so funー♫

(´-`).。oO I overslept

Today I had rehearsal all day long!
I worked hard!\(^_^)/
Today、I overslept on the train for the first time in forever!
When I woke up、 I was like
( ゚-゚)( ゚ロ゚)(( ロ゚)゚((( ロ)~゚ ゚
I freaked out
On cold days the train warms up my feet, so I fall asleep zzz
And then、I seriously almost fell asleep in the bath yesterday。
When I got out of the bath、there was a bruise on my knee!
And it was swollen!!
And my shampoo bottle was in the bathtub!!
When you’re tired you should get into a bed, not a bathtub。Lol

A bag of Harukas*。498 yen。

We met for the first time at the supermarket♡
This must be fate♡
Look、I was so surprised that I made a weird face。Lol
They looked like grapefruits? Or some other citrus fruit!

Today is Haga-chan’s birthday!!

Happy birthdayーーーーッッ!!!
She’s 13。So youngッ。(/ _ ; )
Haga-chan is kind of scatter-brained、so there are times when I worry about her、but I guess that’s just part of her cuteness!!
Though she has a “youngest child” feeling to her、she’s also really cool and her character is a bit of mystery. I hope we can enjoy our Morning Musume LIFE together!♡
Of course I gave her a preーーーーsent!
I hope she uses itー
Well、nighty night\(^o^)/
「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
My hayfever is seriously at its peak。
I’m thankful everyday for eye wash 。
★Kudou Haruka★
*The sign next to her reads “A bag of Harukas”, which appear to be some kind of citrus fruit. Duu’s mind is blown by this.

First、an announcement!


It’s been decided that Morning Musume。’15 will be singing the ending theme for 「Eiga Precure All Stars: Haru no Carnival 」\( ‘ω’)/







The costumes are very PreCure and girl soldier-like!


For me, a part of the 「We are PreCure」generation, this job is a dream come true。
Even Haru used to admire Nagisa-chan。


The dance, which has a Pre-Cure feel to it, really suits us、so I definitely hope we can bring it to the theatre!


Harunan、Ayumin、and Oda-chan are going to be challening themselves as voice actresses and character design、so please keep an eye on that(`・ω・´)ゞ






I’m making these for Valentine’s Day now。


I made chocolate cookiesっ。
Even I was surprised at how tasty they turned out。Lol


The design resembles that of event goods、but I’m probably just going to give them to my papa or my brother, or perhaps my friends~



Today I had a business meeting?for a job I’ve been looking forward to!
I can’t wait to tell you guys about itっ!




Ok、tomorrow is a concert in Hiroshima



Well、nighty night\(^o^)/



「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
My hands are so dry it’s bothering me。(/ _ ; )

It was funー!




Today was the long-awaited photoshoot I told you about yesterday!!
It was really fun(^^)♫


I ate a loーーーt and moved aーーーlot the entire day!
I seriously ate way too much today。Lol
My stomach feels like it’s going to explode( ゜∋゜)





Yesterday on the way home from the Hokkaido performance, I bought Lloyds Popcorn♡


I bought it because it’s small and the price was affordable!
I bought it with Harunan!!



You’d expect no less from Lloyd’s chocolate! The popcorn was crunchy、the chocolate was perfectly sweet、and it was so delicious٩( *˙0˙*)۶



I was really popular with the members today when I brought the popcorn to the photoshoot and shared it!


We’ll be able to go to Hokkaido during the spring tour、so hopefully I can buy some more on the way backっ。




Speaking of which、the spring tour schedule is out!\( ‘ω’)/


Unfortunately、we can’t perform in my hometown Saitama this time、but we’ll be entering Oita and Fukushima prefectures for the first time. We’ll be going to Tochigi, to say the least!I love Tochigi!
We get to perform in places like Tochigi、so I think it’ll be a really fun tour!



Of course there are some elements of anxiety about us becoming a 13 member group、but I want to lead the 12 gen as a senpai and show them my adult composure and charm!!Lol




School and work will resume starting tomorrow。I’m gonna work hard all week!!!




Well、nighty night\(^o^)/



On 3/14「Princess Bambina Spring Edition」comes out!I’m appearing again、this time on the front cover!It’s still a while away、but please check it out!



「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
I was surprised that the The Docchi Ha?*corner was so popular!!


I’ll start it up again if I feel like it。Lol
I have to think about whether there’s anything else I can do。



★Kudou Haruka★


* “Docchi Ha is a game similar to “Coke or Pepsi” in America. You’re presented with two options, such as “Coke or pepsi?” and you have to choose which side you’re on.

(´-`).。oO(I love Michishige-san♡

I wasn’t able to blog yesterday。
I was feeling so airy that I couldn’t organize my thoughts。

It’s over。
I feel like a deflated balloon right now。

Honestly, I can’t articulate my true feelings。
On the contrary, I wonder if everyone on stage had those feelings??


But、it truly was the greatest live!
I’m proud I was able to be present to send Michishige-san off with such a wonderful live performance。
But if there’s one thing I do regret、it’s getting snot all over Michishige-san’s kimono。Lol


I couldn’t stop crying as I expressed my gratitude to Michishige-san during the ceremony。
Since I went to give her a hug while crying、her kimono ended up getting covered in tears and snot~(´・ω・`)


Michishige-san, I’m sorrーーーy!!!




Michishige-san taught me so many things。


The biggest was her teaching me that 『Showing people affection isn’t a bad thing』


Until now、I had always avoided depending on or showing affection to other people、most likely。
I always pretended to be made of steel、but sometimes that would backfire on me….。


But、Michishige-san would tell me「Come here and I’ll give you some affection?」
It’s not like said it only to me in particular、but she understood me。She was always the first to notice even the smallest changes about me、and she was always the only one to notice when I was feeling down。
I love Michishige-san。
I will always, always look up to her。
I’m so glad she was our leader。


Keep in touch, okay?
Let’s all go out to eat together again!
Let’s have a nabe party next time?Lol
I’m going to show people affection。
Showing people affection isn’t something to be embarrassed about。
I’m going to rely more and more on the fans。 (ノ_・。)*sweats*
I’m glad the 10 of us were able to work together。
I’m glad we all met。
I was so happy。
I’m glad I was in Morning Musume while Michishige-san was leader。
Thank you so muchっ。





「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
The DVD magazines、our pictures on my phone、I treasure it all♫

(´-`).。oO(It’s finally happening…. Kudou Haruka★

It’s finally happening tomorrow。
Yokohama Arena。
It’s like、it doesn’t even feel real yet?
I don’t even know。
The half a year since Michishige-san announced her graduation、went by in the blink of an eye。
I thought to myself, 「We still have half a year left!!」  but now it feels like it’s finally here。
This past year has passed by like the wind. There’ve been fun times and happy times and every day has been wonderful and amazing. I’ve  been thinking over and over again about how great the 10 of us were together ….




Ahー、only one day leftー。
The ending might be sloppy, but I want us to be absolutely on fire the entire performance。
I want to deliver the current 10 members’  ultimate power to everyone at the arena, everyone watching life in cinemas nationwide, and everyone watching on TV on BS Sky。!!!
I cannot fully express my gratitude to Michishige-san。
Words like 「Thank you so much」 just aren’t enough。


I was able to grow thanks to Michishige-san 。
I think that making tomorrow’s performance a huge success is the one thing we can do to repay Michishige-san。
I’ll do my bestーーーーーっ!!!







Let’s goーーーーーーーー!!!!!!







「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
My body is sore。Why??

(´-`).。oO(Hiroshima! Kudou Haruka★

Today we had a concert in Hiroshima、Sayashi Riho-san’s hometown!
Hyahhoーーーーi♪( ´θ`)ノ


We only had one performance、so I worked hard with the feeling of “Let’s use our stamina to the max!”!
Sayashi-san was really cute too、so I had a wonderful time♫




An offshot from Young Jump!


The background is orange and redっ


I’ve been spending a lot of time on stage with Sayashi-san。Many people have told me they’re fond of the SayaDuu combination in our stage plays, which makes me happy♡
I envy Sayashi-san-; she can do stage plays, dance, and sing。
I look up to her!!
I want to be someone worthy of standing next to Sayashi-san、and someday would like to surpass her!!


Oh、in addition
Something happened that made me happy。



At the Nippon Budokan concert Sayashi-san and I were practicing our lines out loud。(We had a lot of things to recite ….)


Then, the staff-san said「No doubt about it、Sayashi and Duu are great at reading aloud. You two make a great combination.」


At that moment、all I could think to myself was 「That’s because of Kabe-don*~」。(Hidden meaning)




Next up in Kagawa、but these past 3 days of homecoming lives、have been extremely fun!
I wanna perform in Saitama alreadyーーーー!




Well、nighty night\(^o^)/




「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
Let me introduce you all ♡to the cutest 12th generation member。




Do you get this?Do!!Do made out of pineapple and grapefruit!!
So cuuuuuuute!!!



★Kudou Haruka★


*A scene in Lilum between the two girls’ characters

Kabe don, meaning “Wall smack” refers to the action of intentionally leaning up against a wall and “cornering” someone, usually a woman

To Fukumura-san

♡♡♡♡♡♡Happy BirthDay♡♡♡♡♡♡


Today Fukumura-san turned 18!
Happy birthday| ´ω`|ノ
Today、Kudou attended Fukumura-san’s birthday eventっ!!
By the way, Mano Erina-san also appeared as a special guest♫




Oda-chan came, too!Lol
Even though we went, we didn’t get to go on stage!lol

Fukumura-san was so cute and looked like she was having a blast. I thought to myself,  “I’ve never seen her laugh this much~”!!
Also, 「VERY BEAUTY」 was amazing!!So was 「Arigatou~ookiku Kansha!~」!!!


The key of 「VERY BEAUTY」 is high、but I love Fukumura-san’s falsetto, so I chose it for her!18 is the age where you feel like an adult, so that song really fits!!!!
「Arigatou~Ookiku Kansha!~」 almost made me cry( p_q)涙
Fukumura-san sang it the first time Haru debuted on stage。
I’ve loved that song ever since then, so I wanted her to sing it one more time。
I’m so happy I was able to see it in person。


Good job today, Fukumura-san!
You were great!


I think that the 18th year is a difficult one。Fukumura-san will have to use her head more、so there may be times when she overwhelms herself。
I hope I can support her during those times~、We both used to be Eggs、so I feel we share a special bond that the 9th and 10th generations don’t have。
For that reason, I want her to rely on me more。
Also、my feeling towards Fukumura-san’s fans、is that you’re all amazingly cool!!


I may still be a child、but I’m good at understanding peoples’ feelings- please believe me!!


Make it a wonderful year, okay~♡♡





I love her clingy side。

「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
Everyone!A rhythm game called 「Hello Pro Tap Live」 is going to be released!
It’s similar to Love Live!!!!
Starting today Kudou will go from Love Live-r to Hello Live-r。Lol


I wonder if I accurately expressed !!!!
Nikko Nikko Nikkoー!!
Haru wants a skill like Nikko Nikko ー!!!!!

(´-`).。oO(Happy BirthDay ★

Kudou Haruka is finally 15 ! Everyone!Thank you very much( p_q)嬉

It made me so happy that so many people told me「Happy birthday!」at today’s handshake event!


The outfit I wore for my birthday goods!

It’s in the style of Ciel from Kuro Shitsuji。



『I’m so loved by so many people』

Today, I felt that.

Being 『Happy birthday』by so many people、that doesn’t happen everyday, you know!?

Having so many people who love me、who tell me “I love you”、who make me a priority、who tell me “I miss you~” and who share my interests(Mostly Love Live!lol)makes me so happy。

A lot of things were happening at the same time today、and there were even times where I felt anxious or worried、but I’m just going to put everything in simple terms、without dwelling on the negative or over-stretching myself。

These 9 members have supported me so much up until now、so now I want to support all of them tooっ。
I want to properly look after the 12th generation as well!!

As for my ambitions、I’d like to challenge myself to more stage productions。
I’ve had the privilege of standing on stage many times、but I’ve never been in a movie.  Of course I love being on stage, though, you know?

But I’m by no means gifted at theatre so I want to study more and grow. Michishige-san has been talking a lot about 『Morning Musume。 ’14』on variety shows、but I want to work hard not at variety, but on dramas and movies and make everyone wonder 「Who’s that girl?」

“She’s from Morning Musume。’15!”

My ambition is to be the reason why everyone knows Morning Musume。Right now that might just be another dream、 but I want to make it come true someday!!

And of course!My singing, dancing, and visuals!Lol
I’d like to improve、so please keep supporting me!!


(My face、、、)
Today during our free time, the members、managers, and staff celebrated with me(*´꒳`*)♡

It was so fun♡♡♡

The cakes were delicious too!
Thank youっ(^^)♫

Also、I received an early present from Suzuki-san !
I’ll post a picture of it on my blog laterっ!

Okay!Tomorrow is finally the day of my birthday event!
I’ll do my best!

Don’t forget your towels!!!!
If you don’t have one、they’re going to be sold at the venue so please buy one there!!
By the way, I recommend buying the T-shirt!!(Lol)
Please support Duu!!

Well、nighty night\(^o^)/

「Kyou no Duu de mo ii koto」
I was crying as I wrote this。
As you get older, even your tears become brittle。(´・_・`)
