Announcement.

On the YouTube program uploaded earlier, Hello!Sta, first generation member Fukuda Kanon-san announced that she would be graduating from both ANGERME and Hello!Project in the fall of this year.

 

I was so shocked.

 

Fukuda-san has taken care of me ever since we were in Hello!Pro Egg (Hello!Pro Kenshuusei).

 

We also have a lot of memories together from our time in Shin MiniMoni

 

We made a lot more memories after that when I joined S/mileage

 

Fukuda-san is so funny, all the time

She makes everyone laugh, she pulls everyone along on stage, and I’m so glad to have met such an incredible senpai. I feel that from the bottom of my heart

 

We personally will work even harder to ensure that we can send Fukuda-san off with peace of mind.

 

But right before my eyes now is Nippon Budokan, so I really want to make that a huge success.

 

I want to treasure the time we have together as 9 members.

 

I am sad, but it’s a waste of time to spend every day with those kinds of feelings, so I hope I can make lots of fun memories from here on out in the time we have left together!

help

Lately all I’ve been doing is watching E-girls’ music videos!

 
Their newest music video is so cute, it’s seriously a problem!!

But aside from that, yesterday we started our rehearsals for our concert at the Nippon Budoukan!

We haven’t even gone through all the material yet and I already feel like there’s too much.

 
I’m in quiiite the pickle. lol

 
I’m not very good at memorizing things, so I guess I have to try a bit harder than usual…

 
With only 11 days until the concert and me wanting to give you all a better performance than last year’s Budoukan, I’ll set my brain to overdrive and overcome these rehearsals!

I have to get going to rehearsals now.

 

 
Oh, I almost forgot. You know how I’m posting calligraphy on Twitter? Is there any particular word you want me to do?

 
Tell me in the comments what it is if you have one.

 
It doesn’t matter how long or short it is!

 
I can’t guarantee I’ll pick yours, but that shouldn’t stop you from telling me!

 

Okay, now I really have to go.

Photo shoot

Lately, we’ve been having photo shoots just about every day! lol

They’re tons of fun!

The 3rd gens are so full of energy. lol

And then when they’re tired and fall dead, they look super cute!

 
Muro (Murota Mizuki-chan) has been telling me lately that she really likes my clothes!

 
That makes me really happy.

 
But the second Muro compliments me, Rinapuu (Katsuta Rina-chan) comes hurling insults.

 
Lately I’ve been calling Rinapuu Sune-chan!

 
Sune-chan comes from Suneo-kun from “Doraemon” because she can be just as pompous as him!

 
And thus, Sune-chan was born.

In response to that, she calls me Nobita!

 
Suneo and Nobita. Always at each others’ necks. lol

Otaru

We’re performing in Otaru today.

Our next concert after this one is the Budoukan!

It came so suddenly.

 
Too suddenly! lol

 
After yesterday’s concert in Sapporo, we all had some seafood for dinner!

 
It was unbelievably delicious.

 
The concert was also fun. lol

I had a great time with the members backstage. They were all seriously super funny. lol

 
They were so funny, a picture wouldn’t do the job. You would have to watch a video to understand. lol

 
I was laughing all day.

 

I had a ton of fun!

I took this picture of Maro(Fukuda Kanon-san) and me after the concert.

This is her favorite pose for pictures!

 
Time to get ready for today’s performance.

Summer

The spring drama season has barely started and I’m already looking forward to the summer season. lol

“The Gutsiest Frog” (Dokonjou Gaeru) is getting turned into a drama! That series is from when my mom was a kid! I’ve never watched the anime, so I’m curious what it’ll be like!
Apparently it takes place 16 years after the original, so Hiroshi-kun will be 30!

 
I wanna watch it right now!!!

Another one I want to watch is Death Note.

I loved the Death Note movies so I’m really looking forward to this!!
The cast hasn’t been announced yet, so my excitement starts from there!!
I can’t wait!

 
The last one I know about right now is called
“Hanazaki Mai Just Won’t Quit” (Hanasaki Mai ga Damattenai).
This is actually the second season.
I watched the first season last year, so I’m really excited for this season!

 
This season’s dramas are super good, but I can’t help but want to know about next season’s!

 
I’ll post more about the summer line-up once more get announced.
July is still far away though. lol

 
I’ve been watching dramas all week thinking about how excited I am to go to Hokkaido next week!

And would you look at that, next week is already here. lol

Time flies when you’re having fun watching dramas!

 
So that means watching dramas everyday! lol

 
But now it’s time to have fun performing for you all!

This is us playing in the snow when we came to Hokkaido last year! lol

I cut my hair

Yesterday, I cut my hair.

And quite a bit of it too!

o0480064013295254952

It had gotten all the way down to my shoulders, but not anymore!

But it was fun having it that long. I could braid it and all kinds of things.

It hadn’t had it that long since about the time I entered the group. lol

 
But I feel more like the real me with short hair like this!

 
It’ll also be better like this with summer on its way!

I also darkened my hair a bit since the color would just fade in summer anyways if I made it light!

I feel good about my decisions!

 
I feel good in general!

Then tomorrow and the day after, we have concerts in Hokkaido!

In Sapporo and Otaru to be exact.

I had a great time there last year, so I’m really looking forward to going!!

 
Wait for me, people of Hokkaido!

 
Now there are only 23 days left until our Nippon Budoukan concert!!

 
I hope to see you there!!!

 
Goodbye

Calligraphy

I’m going to post some of the calligraphy I’ve been posting on Twitter!

I can’t just post them all at once, so I’ll post them in chunks!

I’ll start with 2 today!

Here’s the first one!

o0240032013294733507

I – I did this kanji because it looked easy to do! lol
It was!

And the next one!

o0240032013294733519

 
Ascent

I did this kanji because I really like how it looks and I like the implications of the word!

 
My next post will be more calligraphy!

 
Look forward to it.

It’s May

A few days ago, I had two recording sessions. One for AS144 and something else.

I can’t tell you what the other recording was yet!

I sang so much at that recording that when I woke up, my voice was all gravelly. lol

But it went away after a while.

 
Oh yeah!

There’re only 24 days left until our Nippon Budoukan concert!

That was quick!

 
Just under a month now!

 
While things are coming together in the back, it’s not coming together fast enough for us!

 
There are so many things I’m looking forward in the concert that I just want to start the rehearsals already!

Juice=Juice, Kobushi Factory, and the recently announced Tsubaki Factory will be our opening acts!

I know Juice=Juice and Kobushi Factory’s performances are going to be great, but I’m really looking forward to seeing Tsubaki Factory perform for the first time!!

 
You should all also look forward to their performances.

 
Also, we are going to perform a couple of new songs at the Budoukan!

 
You should look forward to that too!!

 
Since there are 9 of us now, we’re also going to do have some shuffle units!

 
I bet you want to know with who and what song I will be performing!!

You’ll have to come to find out!

 
There’s so much to look forward to!!

 
After all, this will be ANGERME’s first time at the Nippon Budoukan!

We have to make it a success!

I want to bask in that beautiful sea of lights and feel the gale of cheers only found at the Budoukan again!

So please, make sure to go to the Nippon Budoukan on May 26th!

I have another reason why you should come! The 26th is S/mileage’s major debut anniversary! You should come celebrate with us!

Our name may have changed, but not our birthday!!

What were we doing last year? Play rehearsals?

Anyways, we weren’t able to have a 4th anniversary celebration last year, but we’ll make up for it this year!!

 
We’ll be 5 years old!!!

Even if you still don’t know whether or not you’ll come, just buy a ticket anyways. lol

Don’t worry about getting a bad seat! We’ll deliver a performance that’ll make all the seats equally as entertaining!!

 
I didn’t think we’d be able to perform at the Nippon Budoukan again so soon, so I’ll make sure to make it better than last time’s!

I’ll make sure to make you all think, “She sure has changed in this last year!!”

Since I’m so short and we keep performing at nothing but live houses, I know there are a lot fans that can’t see me…

But at the Nippon Budoukan, you’ll be able to see all I have to offer!! lol

 
Don’t forget that we have a special Twitter on which I post my calligraphy almost every day! (I know I promised everyday but…) It’ll be active until the 26th, so make sure to check it out!

 
I’ll make sure to post them here too!!

Last time I posted a couple, but next time I’ll post more!

 
Just a little while longer until the Budoukan!!!

So, I’ll write about that for the next blog post.

 
There are so many interesting dramas this season. It’s seriously great!
