Berryz Kobo are the best :happy:

385e6159_240Good evening everyone:wink2::excite2:


「Berryz Kobo Last Concert Berryz Kobo Ikubee~! see you again! 2015」ended without a hitch。
The curtains have been closed :happy:


Berryz Kobo were really 46ba9019_240
They were the best :happy::excite2::excite2::excite2:
From beginning to end
My heart was beating hard、 I was restless
In all sorts of ways :xface::sweat:


You know、43ce43c0_240
Since Berryz Kobo
Made their début
They’d always be running
Ahead of ℃-ute、
Their presence
Was one that we never could reach。


Whatever live performances we watched
When it came to Berryz Kobo’s live performances in particular、
「How cute~」
「We’ve got to do our best」
They moved my heart。
Maybe we might be looking at them favourably because they were our contemporaries!?
Although I used to think that…
Thinking about it today。
When it comes to Berryz Kobo、
I love the personalities
Of each and every one of them。
That’s why my love for them is overwhelming
And I respect them。
I really love them:happy::haato::haato:


To that Berryz Kobo、
I’d like to give a message to each and every one of them!


:star:Shimizu Saki:star:

Captain, honestly
I think that she pays attention to those around her
And she notices changes around her faster than anyone else!
Originally、 she was a ‘fraidy cat。
Someone who got lonely easily。
Really (lol)
But she doesn’t really complain in front of people
So there were times when we were worried about her、
But that strength、
Made me think that
Anyone would acknowledge that Berryz Kobo’s captain is Shimizu Saki!!
Thank you for your 11 years of hard work as captain :happy::haato:


:star:Tsugunaga Momoko:star:
She really thinks about all sorts of things! lol
Even if she doesn’t look it (lol)
When it comes to work
I know that she’s stricter
Than anyone else、
And there are times when she’s like a kind sister、
I think that perhaps
She brings Berryz Kobo together! lol
Sorry that I never called you Momochi until the end :ohno: lol
Since Momo-chan has been Momo-chan since 13 years ago :happy::excite2:
I’ve got my hopes up
For Country Girls’ activities :happy::haato:
Good job!


:star:Tokunaga Chinami:star:
Even when it comes to things that are difficult to talk about
With that cheerfulness
She’d cheerfully inform those around here (lol)
I wish I had that abilityー:happy: lol
That’s what I think about her :happy::excite2:
But、 Chinami-chan’s cheerfulness and the way she speaks
Can really save the world :happy::haato:
Continue to display that cheerfulness, okay :happy:
And so, those tears at today’s MC
That was a foul play :ohno:020[1]
You were just too cute! lol
Thank you for the 11 years of hard work :excite2:


:star:Sudo Maasa:star:
Maasa-chan really brings this motherly sense of security (lol) It makes me want to be pampered!
She’s Berryz Kobo’s mama!
Honestly (lol)
That courteous way of speaking and that composure she puts out、
I honestly think that only Maasa-chan can do that (lol)
It was the first time I’d seen Maasa-chan’s tears。
It was stirring to see Maasa-chan cry at the very very end :excite2:
Good job :happy::haato:


:star:Natsuyaki Miyabi:star:
Miyabi-chan、 honestly, what I can say。 lol
She really has this older sister feeling! I was pampered!
She’s someone that was hard to approach, even for Chisato (lol)
I think that Miyabi-chan led the way for Berryz Kobo in all sorts of things :happy::haato:
She’s really cute (lol)
Thank you for the 11 years of hard work!


:star:Kumai Yurina:star:
Really has a good figure and looks :happy::haato:
I heard that there were times when she was worried over her height、
But it’s because of Berryz Kobo that she now thinks of her height as a positive point、 and she could dream of wanting to become a model :wink2::haato:
While keeping her innocence and childishness、
I want Kumai-chan to do her best towards her next dream:happy:020[1]
Thank you for the 11 years of hard work!


:star:Sugaya Risako:star:
For Chisato
My image of Riichan
Hasn’t changed from when we were small、 like how the way she laughs is, as always, cuter than anyone、 and if I was reborn, I’d like to become an idol like Risako :happy::excite2:
Have a good rest!
I’d like to see you again :haato::haato:
Thank you for the 11 years of hard work :haato:


That’s how it is :wink2::haato:


Everyone、 each and every one of them
Had personalities and characters that were all over the place
Yet Berryz Kobo were such a wonderful group
That the juniors adore :onpu:
You’ll definitely always be
What ℃-ute looks up to。


From tomorrow、
We can only face forward
And do our best with our memories of Berryz Kobo in our hearts :wink2::haato::haato::haato:
It’d be all right to contact us if you’re feeling down… lol


Berryz Kobo will last eternally :excite2::excite2:


Beyond this, I’ll always always
Loooooooooooooooooooooooooove you :haato::haato::haato:

c6926389_240Good evening everyone :happy::haato:


:star:Berryz Kobo Matsuri:star:
The 2 days have ended without a hitch :excite2::excite2::excite2:


Yesterday was the last day
That we’d stand on-stage with Berryz Kobo :xface::excite2:


For the live performance、
Berryz Kobo
Selected Berryz Kobo songs for each group、
And we sang those songs :wink2::haato:


For ℃-ute
「Motto Zutto Issho ni Itakatta」 and 「Loving you Too much」
Were what we sang :wink2::haato:


「Loving you Too much」
Seems to be popular amongst Berryz Kobo’s songs、
And Berryz Kobo chose that popular song
As the song they wanted ℃-ute to sing :sob::haato:


To all of them、
Thank you so very much。


Watching Berryz Kobo perform live、
I cried (lol)


But you know。 What I thought。
For the fans
Who have always been cheering on Berryz Kobo、
No、 even those who have started recently
Those with unending love for Berryz Kobo
Must hurt the most。


At yesterday’s MC
You know、
That Momo-chan? lol
Did a serious MC。
At the time、 I really felt it
「Ah。 Berryz Kobo really are entering a hiatus」。


Berryz Kobo will enter their hiatus。
We’ve got to give Berryz Kobo
A push on their backs!


But tomorrow, tomorrow only
Please let me cry。 lol


My dear dear
Berryz Kobo。
Please have a blast with everything you’ve got!
Do your best:haato::haato::haato:!!!
I looooooooooooove youーーーーー。 lol


Bye bye :queen:

Day 2 :blueface::excite2:

89159baa_240Good evening everyone:happy:


Today and tomorrow
Will be the 2 days
Where I’ll stand on-stage
With Berryz Kobo :sad::sweat:05e4ae20_240


I don’t know if I should feel it or not :sad::sad:


When I meet Berryz Kobo
Even more than usual、
「Ah…」 My chest tightens :xface::haato:
They’re quite beloved (lol)
「Hold itー:ohno:
Is what I really think、


But、 I want to give Berryz Kobo
The greatest joy
And make all of their days
Ones that’ll always always remain in their hearts :happy::haato::sad::haato::happy:


It’s kind of heartbreakingーーーーーーー。lol
This is how it feels
When something important to you disappears, huh
Uneasy、 hesitant


What I want to say
Is that Berryz Kobo
Were awesome again today :happy::excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2:


Let’s look forward to the concert :onpu::onpu:


:camera: There was a message from Berryz Kobo
In our dressing room!
How moving:happy::haato::haato:


Bye bye :queen:

The best :happy::excite2:

6435b03c_240Good evening everyone!
Today in Osaka、
We wrapped up
The winter Hello! Con! :wink2::excite2:


The stage that Berryz Kobo have stood on
In summer and winter, every year
For about 12 and a half years :excite2::excite2::excite2:
Today is the last time
That Berryz Kobo will stand
On the stage of a Hello! Con。daf9dd7b_240


Thank you so so very much for your hard work :happy::excite2:


The passage of 12 and a half years
Is definitely、 not a short period of time
So there are a mountainload of various memories spinning in my head :xface::blueface:


We weren’t able to memorise the dances fac6bd34_240
And got a great scolding (lol)
And we got scolded for running in the corridors (lol)
We’ve got so many memories that I wouldn’t be able to finish if I started talking about them :happy:020[1]:lips:


When the Hello! Con started、
「Oh myー there’s a lot of peopleー」、
「This person’s grown!」
BeriKyuu had lots of discussions like that :happy::haato:


But in the summer Hello! Cons
Berryz Kobo will no longer be around :blueface::blueface:
It’s sad, it’s sad
I feel like
「Will Berryz Kobo really not be around for the summer Hello! Cons?」


Today、 with Berryz Kobo
We got to sing
Ganbacchae! at the end of the Hello! Con :sad::haato:

When we were singing、
「I’ve got to burn the memory of today into my mind」
I thought :happy::excite2::excite2:
Fully and properly!
I’ll bake it in :xface:


I think that it’ll become a memory
That I’ll always remember in the future
Just like when I made my debut :ohno::haato:


The Hello! Project Kids truly are the best :rabu::haato:


Berryz Kobo
For the Hello! Cons。
Thank you so very much for your hard work :happy:020[1]:haato::haato:


Ahhー My eyes have swollen up :sweat:
What’ll happen to me
On the 3rd of March :sweat: lol
I’ll do my best with a smile…ー!!


Berryz Kobo’s the best :haato:
Bye bye :queen:

Wow :blueshock:

f32eceb8_240Good evening everyone :happy:020[1]
Today we had a Hello!
live performance at Osakaっ:happy::lips:


Tomorrow is the last day
Of the winter Hello!…7202ac3a_240


But tomorrow
Wil be the last time that we’ll stand at a Hello! Con
With Berryz Koboー :blueshock:
I’ve been thinking about it、
There are all sorts of memories
Spinning around in my head :ohno::haato:4fe2241f_240


The curtains were raised
The music for Ganbacchae! played、
And we sang it
With the seniors of Morning Musume。。


If I remember correctly、 the oldest of us
Umeda Erika-chan
Was 11 years old :happy:
And the youngest、 Mai-chan
Was 6 :happy:020[1]


We were so small
That the 15 of us didn’t even know right from left…


And now
We’ve all gone past 20, besides Mai-chan :xface: lol
Such a long time has passed, huh… (lol)
I’m feeling it。


Hello! Cons。
They’re the stage that we first performed on、
In the past, we’d learn from our seniors’ performances、 occasionally we’d get told off by the seniors
And we’d reflect…
This is something I’m feeling anew、
But it ties back
To Berryz Kobo and ℃-ute’s growth。


But now a lot of the seniors
Have graduated、
Last year、 Michishige-san
Graduated from Morning Musume ’14、
I thought
Berryz Kobo and ℃-ute
Have become the most senior。
We’ve got to lead
Hello !Project!!


But still、
Berryz Kobo decided on their indefinite hiatus。
It’s like a huge hole
Opened in my heart
I couldn’t express what I wanted to say (lol)
However、 we were always
Active together、
So I couldn’t really feel anything、
Tomorrow is the final Hello! Con for Berryz Kobo
Thinking about it
A feeling of unease :blueface::happy2:
Stirs in me。


I can’t remember
What it was that I wanted to say (lol)


That’s right! What Chisato wanted to say、
Was about tomorrow’s Hello! Con。
I’d like to have tomorrow’s performance be a wonderful one that leaves an everlasting impression
Just like when we first stood on-stage:happy:
To do that, we need everyone’s power。
All you Hello! fans。
And all you Berryz Kobo fans :excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2::haato::haato::haato:
I’m counting on you :excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2::haato::haato::haato::haato:


And today。
We’ve been watching various videos of BeriKyuu
From the pastっ:happy::excite2::excite2:
From 13 years ago (lol)
It’s nostalgic。 lol


No doubts about it!
BeriKyuu are the best :ohno:


And so everyone。
Bye bye :queen:

February :happy::haato:

1a6dc3d2_240Good evening everyone:happy:020[1]


Today is the birthday
Of Maimi-chan and Mai:haato::haato:
Many happy returns:excite2::excite2::excite2:


And on the 5th
It was Nacky’s birthday :happy::haato:
Happy birthday :excite2::excite2::excite2:1a612f8c_240


For 3 people out of 5、
To be born in February
It’s amazing, right :rabu:020[1] lol
It’s also amazing that Maimi-chan and Mai-chan have the same birthday :xface::haato::haato::haato:
That’s just so amazingー!!!
1 out of 365
That’s crazyーーー:star::star::star::star::star::star:


In February、(lol)388ccc76_240
Since I’ve got to get presents
For the 3 of them
Chisato’s allowance
Gets in a spot of trouble :xface::happy::excite2: lol
This year I gave the 3 of them
Appropriate presents :rabu:
Complete satisfaction :devilish::haato:


Well then、 I’d like to talk about them
One by one :happy::excite2:


Firstly、 the youngest
Mai-chan (lol):haato:
Although Mai-chan’s the youngest、
She’s the one who pays the most attention to her surroundings、
And I feel she’s the one who thinks the most about all sorts of things (lol)
And、 she’s really loved by those around her :happy::haato:
It makes me really envious
That’s what I always think :wink2::excite2: lol
A long time ago、 there was a time when Mai-chan was rebellious :blueface: (lol)
There were times when she was really down in the dumps and times when she was anxious
But now she really is in control of herself
Looking at her、
The number of things about her that I think are grown-up
Have increased。
Chisato should keep her cool too :xface: (lol) There are times when I think that
In contrast, Chisato feels that there are lots of times when Mai has helped me out (lol)


Howeーver :excite2:
There are still parts of Mai that are childish, she’s cute and like a little sister
She’s cute, it can’t be helped :wink2::haato:
I like Mai as she is!
Enjoy your last year as a teenager :happy:020[1]
Happy birthday :haato:


And then、 Nacky!
Nacky、 compared to a long time ago
We don’t hang out any moreー
That’s what I honestly feel :devilish:(lol)
Well、 the both of us
Have things we need to do
A lot of the time our days off don’t jive :xface::sweat:
Chisato’s waiting for an invitation for a tripー:happy:020[1]We promised! That we’d go on a trip someday!
I want you to invite me moreー!
And then、 when there’s something you’re worried about, don’t just worry by yourself and feel free to consult with me :happy::excite2:
You occasionally have this look on your face like you want to say something, I’m interested!← If I’m misunderstanding, that’s embarrassing
I’ll catch up as a 21 year old soonー:happy:020[1]
Happy birthday :haato::haato:


Maimi-chan’s 23 :happy:
23 is pretty grown-up :happy:!
But Maimi-chan is still
Way youthful :rabu:
When Chisato turns 23
I think
I won’t be able to move like that (lol)
And Maimi-chan became Hello! Pro leader last year
In a good way、 it’s a relief that it hasn’t changed Maimi-chan :happy:


I’d like to hear
Maimi-chan’s own opinions
From her own mouth
About Hello! Pro
And about ℃-ute、 and I feel like I want to see her、
Rousing up Hello! Pro
And ℃-ute :happy:
And so I want her to do her best and lead us more in that way now as a 23 year old :happy:
If it’s Maimi-chan, everyone will followーーー:haato::haato:
Happy birthday :excite2::excite2::excite2:


And with that、 no matter how many years
We celebrate your birthday
No matter how many celebrations there are、
For coming into this world
Encountering Chisato
And always helping out
I’d really like to thank you:happy:
That’s what’s on my mind:haato:
Maimi-chan、 Mai、 Nacky!
Thank you for being born :haato::xface::haato::xface:
Beyond this, let’s always always always
Celebrate together!!!


One more time :excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2::excite2:
For being born
Thank you so soooooo much


Love youー:haato::haato::devilish::haato::Haato:


Bye bye :queen:

Wow :rabu::haato:

f6b937a2_240What a surprise (lol)
I bought the same schedule book
As Maimi-chanーーー:happy::excite2::excite2::excite2:


There are virtually a countless variety of schedule books, yet it’s pretty amazing that we got the same one :haato::haato::haato:


I felt that it’s definitely
Our 13 years of being together :rabu::haato:


Fufu :star:

77e2ed01_240Good evening everyone :happy::haato:
Happy new year :onpu:
I’m begging for your kindness for this year as wellー:happy:020[1]


The moment it turned into 2015
We were spending our time at the Countdown live
With all of the fans who were there :happy::haato:


Whenever a countdown happens
I get nervous and restless (lol):haato:43b00b79_240


We went to Osaka and Kobe、
It was kind of a rush
It was the end of the year
But it made me happy to be busy :happy::haato:


Several years ago, it was vexing that despite being active idols, we didn’t have work at the end of the year and the New Year period :blueface::blueface:
I really wanted to appear on music programmes (lol):haato:


After we were done with yesterday’s live performance、7dc947e2_240
℃-ute went and joined in a festival
At a shrine in Osaka :rabu:
It was pretty fun :haato:
Things like the food carts were really awesome :happy:
Chisato will put up some of her favourite photos :happy::onpu:


I’ve got a break today :haato:
I had chirashi sushi with my family、 zōni :happy:
And salmon roe :rabu:
It was awesome :haato::haato:
That said, the Okai family is awesome (lol)
We kept playing the werewolf game :happy::haato::haato:


We’ll be doing our best at Hello! Cons from tomorrow :happy::haato::haato::haato:


I’m begging for your kindness in 2015 too :happy::onpu::onpu:

8df8cad7_240【From the staff: This blog post was from last night。 We apologise for the delay in updating。】


Good evening everyone!


The influenza has safely
Left Chisato’s body :ohno::excite2:


The flu、
Was less painful than I thought it’d be :happy:


I had an appetite、
I could move、
And my throat didn’t hurt!
My situation was that my temperature was higher than usualー
And noises resounded in my head。 lol


What hurt the most
Was the pain of not being able to work, more than anything :ohno:


I had to be absent from the event
The members、
The staff-san、
And above all
The fans who had been waiting for
The 5-person ℃-ute with Chisato、
I’m truly sorry。


I went to check my condition at the hospital today
And I’m healthy enough that I’ve got permission to go outside from tomorrow!


You know、
When I first went to the hospital、


:apple: 『From your pulse, the movements of your lungs
Your throat, the state of your lowered temperature
And your expression, the possibility of flu is low
So we’ll dispense cold medicine for you~』
I was told (lol)


With this and that、 I felt that I was doing worse than usual、


:nyan: 『Just in case、
Can you check for the flu??』
I requested…


15 minutes later…


:apple:『You tested positive for influenza (lol)、 but you’re looking well。 That’s pretty rare。 I’ve now learnt that such things happen。 Please take care。』


Having said that, I received medicine and went home。 (lol)


That’s the extent that it didn’t appear
On my body、 on my face。 For me。
It wasn’t really painful
I’m grateful to my parents for bringing me up in such good health。lol


However、 that rod they put in your nose to check for the flu
That hurtー:blueface::blueface::blueface:


I’ll be ready for work from tomorrow, so I’ll do my best!!


Everyone, please take care of yourselves!


Bye bye :queen:

Good evening ♪

84266a06_240Good evening everyone :queen:020[1]


Today I had a photo shoot for an event
With Airi :happy:
Being around Airi brightens up my feelings :happy2::haato:


I met Mai for a moment
But we had a good laugh :star::happy:
I also had a good laugh with Maimi-chan and Nacky :excite:


The members of ℃-ute
Really are the best!b5ee85d2_240


I watched the video of Matsuura Aya-san’s dinner show :sparkle:
Her singing is really wonderful~~ It struck my heart while I was listening to her :rabu::haato:


You know!
I asked our manager-san
And got thissss:happy::excite2:
Matsuura Aya-san’s DVD:haato::haato:


Chisato wants to have a dinner show too someday、 and for that, I guess I’ll have to raise my singing ability higher and higher :sad:020[1]
