    Great post! :D
    Whoa, I just realized how long Saki have known the members. They really must be like family to her! Just imagine that – seeing someone almost everyday for 10 years! She must have so many experiences and memories from this that time, this is amazing.
    Though I understand it, I’m a bit disappointed that she doesn’t contact with Maiha anymore. Well, maybe other members does.

    Thank you for translation!

      I’m really love this kind of question. It make you wonder how their relationship going on in the group. I like to read this kind of question on other member and other group too. Especially Momoko because its seems there are some member have a little “cold” relationship with her…

    Wow, I’m surprised at these comments after so long XD I actually still have a few of Captain’s Q&A posts from last year which I haven’t gotten to yet >_< I was pushing them off from being busy and then pretty much just forgot about them… Maybe I’ll try to throw one up from time to time on slow days, since otherwise it’ll be impossible to find them being buried so far back. Actually, reading through this again, it’d be a good reference for people who’re doubting Berryz these days. Especially the questions she answered concerning how they had a goal of Budoukan at least from early last year actually, and that she’d prefer personal connections with fans vs. booming popularity.
