Takeuchi Akari


Yesterday、 the 26th of November, Michishige Sayumi-san graduated from Morning Musume。’14、 and as leader of Hello! Project!!

Michishige-san, congratulations on graduating!!!

Yesterday’s Yokohama Arena concert was really moving、 I cried countless times、、、、*tears**tears*

I really love the things about Michishige-san that are cute and cool・・

I acted with Michishige-san in the very first play that I appeared in when I was part of Hello! Pro Egg (Now Hello! Pro Kenshuusei)、 and she spoke gently with me、 it made me really happy!!!!

Michishige-san’s graduation makes me feel really sad、 but watching yesterday’s concert、 I was able to see all sorts of aspects of Michishige-san!!!

Beyond this、 I’d like to become a person who’s completely cool like Michishige-san, even by just a little \(^o^)/

Michishige-san, thank you for your 12 years of hard work!!

I love Michishige-san \(//∇//)\

Yesterday there was another person celebrating her birthday, right (^ν^)

It was the birthday of Morning Musume。’14′s Fukumura Mizuki-chanーーー!!!

She’s 18!!!

The Mizukichi mentioned in the title is Mizuki-chan!!!

The first time Akari and her met, the 2 of us were still in primary school, about 10?11?、、、、lolol

Time sure flies lol

I wanted to go to her birthday eventーーーー( ; ; )

She sang Eighteen Emotion!!!!

I wanted to see that lolol


I was glad when she said it pumped everyone upーーー\(//∇//)\


Today、 I went shopping together with Mizuki-chan!!!!

Thankfully I met her the day after her birthdayー(^o^)/

It’s been a while since we hung out!!!!

Since it’s Halloween today, there were lots of people dressed up and made-up、 maybe we were the only people who weren’t doing anything like that this year! lolol

That’s what we talked about lolol

It felt like we were overseas lol


Since we only went in the evening, I feel unsatisfied、 but it was tons of fun *\(^o^)/*


Let’s hang out again, kー(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

Mei Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!

The date may have changedーーー_| ̄|○

But I’m writing this on the 30th ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ

Please read this based on thatー lolol

Today is Mei’s (Tamura Meimi-chan) 16th birthday \(^o^)/

Happy birthday Mei!!!!!

I’m glad that I got to meet you on the day of your birthday itself \(//∇//)\

I happily gave her a present too!!!!!

Mei may be the youngest, but her singing and dancing and ability to stir up the audience packs a punch!!!!

She won’t lose to anyone in that d( ̄  ̄)

Backstage she’s always doing songs or dances or lines from musicals、 Mei’s really cute, enjoying herself in all sorts of ways!!!

She was 15 up to yesterday、 and even though not a single thing’s changed, I somehow think of her as being young lolol

To those who are going to tomorrow’s birthday event、 please enjoy yourselves!!!

It’s going to be fun \(//∇//)\


Mei, the youngest child!!!!

Please continue to be cute (^o^)/


Have a wonderful year………・・・

Disney ^_- ☆

I went to Disney Sea with Yajima Maimi-san from ℃-ute a couple of days agoー!!!

That was tons of funーー\(^o^)/

We got on lots of attractions \(//∇//)\

Toy Story Midway Mania 2 times
Turtle Talk with Crush
Journey to the Centre of the Earth
Magic Lamp Theatre
Raging Spirits 2 times
Indiana Jones 2 times
20000 Leagues under the Sea
Tower of Terror

We had gyoza dogs while lining up for the attractionsーー(o^^o)

They were super deliciousー!!!

I’d wanted to try oneーー(≧∇≦)

But we definitely did spend a long time queuing up lolol


We battled in Toy Story Midway Mania!

You know、 we went on it 2 times、 and I emerged victor 2 timesーーー(^_^)v


We also got on Indy Jones 2 times、 the first time around we were sitting at the very front and the 2nd time we were at the very back!!

The 2nd time we were swinging so much that it felt like we would be launched off lolol

It was the first time I’d ridden at the back、 but it was tons of fun \(//∇//)\

I liked Raging Spirits the most (^_^)v

We got on it when it was turning dark, and we could see the castle at Disneyland, it was oh-so prettyー(^-^)/

Ah! That’s rightー!!

We were always walking around wearing matching sunglassesー( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

We still wore them at night, so it was dangerous in the darknessーー lol

You know、 there was a couple in front of us when we were lining up for an attraction, and their conversation was super funny!!!

Apologies for eavesdropping。 lol

And、 we talked to them, saying that the 2 of them seemed to get along wellー and that they were funnyー、 and after we had finished riding the attraction, they told us they were fans! \(//∇//)\

That had Akari really flustered!!

That happy and cute couple knew about us!!!

Akari was making an even bigger fuss than these people who had greeted us lolol

I told them that!

The conversation was really funny!!

Please be happy!!

I felt like a celebrity lolol

Well、 it was a fun day, until the very end(^∇^)


We took tons of photos, so I’ll put them up now and again ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ






Let’s go againーーー!!!!!

So quick!!

It’s already October!!!

Isn’t it too quick!?
The year will be ending in another 2 months time!!!!


I don’t have any memories of September!! lolol
When will September end!?
That’s how it feltーー lolol
Although it was summer, it’s going to be winterーー
Time really waits for no manーー


I’m looking forward to Octoberーーー!!!!!
Ahーーー I want to go shopping!
Today we’ll be having a talk show at the Akihabara Hello! Shop!!!
A talk show about Smile Fantasy!!!

Looking forward to itーーー!!!

Thank you very much!!

I read your comments!

All of you were surprised, weren’t you! lolol

It surprised Akari at first tooー。 lol

But、 please continue to support us!
And also、 as we head towards the name change!

Also、 knowing that everyone feels so cheerful about it、 and will continue giving your unwavering support, it makes me feel really relieved!!

When we had just joined as the 2nd gen members, there were also people who were cheering on the 2nd gen、 but there were also a lot of people voicing out that staying as 4 people would’ve been better!

Wellー That’s a given!! lol

And so、 I think that there’ll be people who think that the current 6 people are better!

And yet、 when the 3rd gen members join、 I feel that people saying things on the lines of ‘How it was before the 3rd gen joined、、、’ will stop happening when the 3rd gen members are around、 and since I understand how that feels a little、 I think that words like that will leave really deep scars in the newly joined 3rd gen who’re thinking about doing their best!!

I don’t want the 3rd gen to experience such painful thoughts、 so I would like it if each and every person keeps their many thoughts buried within their hearts!!!
Since that’s the first step towards advancing to a brighter future!!!


For me, I really love the 6 person S/mileage!!!
It’s so precious to me that even saying that I love it is insufficient!!!

Since we were 6 people for quite a long time, it might take some time to adjust、 ourselves included!
But for the sake of advancing towards a bright future, we don’t need even a single negative word!!!!


I’m sure that beyond this, there’ll be a lot of fun things waiting for usーーーー!!


So now、 I’m excited!!!!

Which of the Kenshuusei will become our companions!?

I’m looking forward to it!!!!!

Even when the 3rd gen members join in、 I’ll definitely still be this way lolol

New members。Name change。

It’s been decided that 3rd-generation members will be joiningーーー!!!!!!

3rd-gen members from Kenshuusei will join!!!!!!



I’m excited over what kinds of girls will come in!!


Also、the group name “S/mileage” will have a name change!




The reason new members are joining、is because the first-gen members

didn’t know what would be good for us 2nd-gen members to do after they graduated

and it seems that they had fully realized their uneasiness about that、and were thinking about us。


Also、there are parts where we have been acting lightly、

and we have to focus our energies a bit more。

We can’t be chit-chatting like we’re the youngest kids forever。

It seems they decided to add 3rd-gen members because

they also wanted us to mature more as well。



When 3rd-gen members join、we can’t be acting frivolously、

and our juniors will be able to be in the same group as us。We’ll become seniors (senpai)。Which means

we will have to teach them what we’ve learned up to now。



There are still lots of things I don’t know how to do、but I’m sure

there are things that the 3rd-gen will teach me too、so I think it would be good

if I, too, could improve little by little!!!




The new members will debut in front of everyone on 10/4、and I’m really looking forward to it!!!




And、about the group name change、the original S/mileage

was a 4-person group、and from there two members graduated、and it seems that

at that time they had even been considering disbanding。


But they didn’t, and we 2nd-gen members were accepted

and we’ve been doing activities together as six people、and on 7/15 this year

we were able to make our Nippon Budoukan performance a success…。


Making this the end of S/mileage in its present form、

new members will come in、and here our group name will change

and we’ll have a brand-new start。



The new group name will be decided through

general applications!




This is the first step toward our bright future!!!


And、from this point on、even though our name will change

S/mileage will continue to evolve、and I think it would be nice if we could become a group

whose existence will go on for a long time!!


From now on, I want to advance forward and improve alongside the new members!!



And from now on too、please give us your support!!

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the 2nd gen members!!!

Tomorrow we’ll enter into our 4th year!!!

I was in my 2nd year of middle school when I joined, and now I’m in my 2nd year of high school。

I’ve grown up lolol

Those 3 years passed by in the blink of an eye!!

My goal for our 4th yearーーー

That’s what we expect!

I’d like people to say that about us!!

I’d like them to stop saying ‘It’s the 2nd gen again, it can’t be helped’!!!

I want them to start thinking, ‘Now that’s what we expect from the 2nd generation’!

Or rather、 we have to become like that!!!

I’d like it if from now on, the 4 of us 2nd gens would put our strengths together and overcome all obstacles!!!

I feel like with the 4 of us, we can overcome anything together!!!!

You know、 since even with all the hardships we’ve had so far、 we got through it because it was the 4 of us!!!!

Kananan is super reliable。
Or rather、 I’m reliant on her lolol
I think that she’s the person I have to apologise to the most。 And thank。 I’ve often troubled her in all sorts of ways、 and she’s helped me out a lot、 so I’m grateful!
But on the flip side、 I really like the extremely funny Kananan!
I’ll continue to depend on you as the oldest of the 2nd gen members ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ
I made a promise with Kananan to go to Odaiba, but we still haven’t gone。。。
I want to go soon!!

Actually, I’ve been together with Rinapuu for about 5 years? 6 years? lol
We were together since we were Kenshuusei lolol
She can really talk about all sorts of things and include Akari lolol
Recently all our discussions have been about wanting to go for the Harry Potter attraction at USJ as soon as possible lol
I respect Rinapuu, who sings with everything she’s got no matter where we’re performing!
Let’s go for Harry Potter soon, okay!! lol

Mei is sometimes mature and sometimes childish, she really feels like the youngest!!!
She’s cute! Like a pet lolol
But her singing packs a punch, you wouldn’t think that she’s the youngest!!
Also, if I’m appearing with Mei in a musical, I’ve got no worries!
How odd! If anything, knowing that ‘Mei’s around!’ makes me feel like I can take on anyone! lolol
I’ll continue to keep my eyes on the Mei who’s sometimes cute and sometimes cool、 and does as she pleases on stage!!

Although there are a lot of people who say that they feel like Akari dislikes her、、、lolol
That isn’t the case。。。lol

I can’t really bring out in my demeanour、 so I get a bit uptight、 but I love them all from the bottom of my heart!!

The 4 of us 2nd gen members would like to beg for your kindness from now on too!!!

And、 when the 2 original members are with us, this group becomes the best!!!


It’s like there’s nothing we can’t overcome when the 2 of them are around、 so it makes me super happy to have joined a group with these members!!!

From now on too、 the 2nd gen members will grow up in this way!!!

Will everyone follow along!? lolol

I hope that the 6 of us will put our strengths together and do our best!!

I love the 6 person S/mileage!!!

We hope for your continued support!!!

Today’s AMeRiKa call made us happy!!!!!

And with that、 I’ll do my best at tomorrow’s tour in Fukui prefecture!!!!



The cake was delicious\(//∇//)\

Berryz Kobo-san

At the Hello! Con we had the day before yesterday、 it was announced that Berryz Kobo-san would be entering an indefinite hiatus in the spring of next year




I got to perform in the musical Warera Jeanne with Berryz-san last year、 and we’ve been friends since then。
They’re really kind, lovely, cool, wonderful seniors、 so I couldn’t believe it when I heard about it。




However、 it’s something that was decided by all of the members through their discussions 、 and since there’s still time until the spring of next year、 I’d like to watch and learn even more from Berryz-san、 and I’d like to cheer them on with everything I’ve got!!!!

The very 1st song that Akari got to sing when she passed the Hello! Pro Egg Audition was Fighting Pose ha Date Janai


Just so you know!!!

And so、 it’s song that I really really love!!!!


Berryz Kobo-san are senpais that I really love!!


My memories of Berryz-san are a treasure!!!!!
