Tasaki Asahi

Idol soul!!

I went to watch Morning Musume。’14 Concert Tour Autumn GIVE ME MORE LOVE ~Michishige Sayumi Sotsugyou Kinen Special~ FINAL!!

 
o0480064013141583325[1]

 

 

 
From beginning to end, it was a storm of deep emotion (ノ∀;`)

 

 
On my first stage appearance two years ago、 Michishige-san talked to me when I was in a panic and didn’t know what to do。

 
She was gentle、
And asked me
「Are you nervous?」。

 

It wasn’t just that、 she’d also ask to take photos whenever we were together in the dressing room…

 
She really looks out for those around her、 a senior who’s kind to her juniors!

 

But listening to the words of each and every comment from all of them to Michishige-san at today’s concert、 it fully conveyed how deeply everyone truly loves and respects Michishige-san!

 
And、 I’m one of them!

 

When Michishige-san hurt her leg and couldn’t dance at today’s concert、 seeing Michishige-san still singing and dancing with all her life、 she was really cool、 and、 really beautiful!

 
This might sound weird coming from me、

But Michishige-san is the soul of idols!!

 
That’s what I felt again today!

 

 

Michishige-san! Congratulations on graduating!

I handed it over!

Good evening!

 

 

It was cold enough in Tokyo yesterday that snow fell!

 

 

The weather has been changing drastically recently、 has everyone been able to stick with their usual schedule?

 

The other day、 I handed over my Hokkaido souvenir to my sensei at a lesson。
(Refer to my blog post on the 
3rd of February)

 

 

 

 

I handed it over in a bag and upside down so that sensei wouldn’t know what the contents were。

 

Sensei「Thank you for all your troubleー! (Upon seeing the souvenir) Ah! Shiroi Koibito! I love it!

 

 

Me 「(What!! Sensei’s so happy thinking that it’s Shiroi Koibito!) Wait、erm! Please look carefully!><

 

 

 

Sensei「On the opposite side?… Shiroi、 Mori… ki? Is that how you read it?

 

 

Me「I’m sorry :aseru:  I had intended to buy Shiroi Koibito! But I’m definitely sure this is delicious as well!

 

 

Sensei「(laughs)」

 

 

And、 it was received joyfully in that way!

 

Thank god!

 

 

Switching topics、 it might be a bit sudden、 but I couldn’t find what I’m looking for。

 

My important music notes!

 

Where did I put it…

 

It’s a good thing I wrote my name on it…

I just hope I haven’t left it in Hokkaido :!!:

Today’s photo is a photo of me eating cheesecake from Miyazaki’s famous Little Angels cale store-san!

 

The cheesecake here is awesome!

Shiroi…

Good evening!

 

 

Tokyo was blessed with warm weather today!

Though I love the snow、I’m finding it good since I’m bad with the cold  :nikoniko:

 

Well then、today let me tell you all about something minor that happened to me。

 

There were some people who wrote it in the comments yesterday…

 

 

When I went to Hokkaido a couple of days ago、 I bought 「Shiroi Koibito」 as a souvenir!

 

 

 

… Or should I say、 I intended to buy it。

 

 

For the sensei who’s always been giving me guidance、 I thought that I’d get him 「Shiroi Koibito」 as a souvenir!、 and since the store was about to close I bought it in a rush。

 

 

 

And I didn’t notice that I had made a significant blunder…

 

 

 

 

 

While we were sorting out the souvenirs that various people had put in a bag!

 

「This is for sensei…… Ehっ… What the heck is this…!?

 

 

That’s right、 everyone had noticed its presence, but it was too late 、 instead of 「Shiroi Koibito」 I had made a mistake and bought a sweet called 「Shiroi Moriki」 :!!: :!!:

 o0480080012834647416[1]

 

「Shiroi Moriki?Was that what I bought?」 I thought、 and it turns out that I did buy it。

 o0420039612834647405[1]

↑Receipt {Arrow is pointing to ‘Shiroi Moriki’}

 

 

Apologies, sensei :aseru:
But there’s nothing that can be done any more…

I wonder what sort of response sensei will have …><

I think I want to report it in a future blog post。

 

 

 

 

P.S. I forgot to buy a Marimo for myself´ω;`)

BIRTHDAY

Good evening(^-^*)/

 

 

It’s gotten seriously cold.

 

How is everyone doing?

 

I’m still cheerful as ever!

 

It’s gotten cold all of a sudden, so please take care of your health.

 

By the way, today is Pocky Day :!!:

 

Furthermore, it’s also

Nurses’ Day (good day)

Battery Day (Put +and -together to form eleven)

Socks Day (1111←don’t they look like socks)

Nikuman Day ((11)」this looks like the nose of a pig)

Beansprouts Day

Chopsticks Day

Chimney day etc…

 

 

Somehow, when you put all the 1s together it’s like「Oooh :kirakira: 」.

 

For this year, today has the most significance :!!:

It’s LoVendoя’s Reina-san’s birthday!

 

Reina-san, happy birthday [*crackers*]

 

I’m always in Reina-san’s care on the YouTube program UF LICKS!

 

Furthermore, I got to perform as the opening act in their concerts, appeared on Music Festa together, and she’s always been nice to me :!!:

 

When we’re together, she teaches me stuff I wouldn’t have figured out what to do on my own, as well as giving me tips when I’m lost and teaching me to see things from a different point of view!
I’ll be in your care from now on too
!

 

Thank you so much ^^

 

 

Now then, the song I’m listening to today is Oku Hanako-san’s「Birthday!

 

 

 

This song is a favorite of my friends, and is full of memories for me!

 

When I met my friends back when I went back to Nagasaki the other time, they said「It’s a little early but Happy Birthday」and gave me presents while singing this song to me.

 

Next time when I want to send someone else off with a smile, I will be sure to pick this song every time!

 

It’s a great pop song that makes you think “it’s great to have been born!”

Without even saying hello

Good evening!

 

I went to the park this morning, and when I started singing to myself, a foreigner who happened to be passing by clapped for me!

 

I was really happy but also a little embarassed :aseru: :aseru:

 

 

Now then, on a different topic, this is about something that happened last night.

 

Normally, so that my piano practice won’t be interrupted, I arranged with my mother for her to call me around 10pm at night.

 

So when the slightly sleepy me answered the phone, my mother suddenly said this.

 

 

Mom「What’s GranChanVolley short for?

 

 

She said this to me.

 

Without even saying hello first.

 

 

With me being half asleep
Me「…Eh
? How would I know

 

 

Mom「Then GraCoro?

 

※GraCoro…The name of a product from a McDonalds commercial

Mom「(lol)Oh, it’s just that there was a CM about GranChanVolley just now, and I thought Asahi might know! And then I thought of GraCoro right after that!

 

 

 

Me「Yeah, I never even thought about it!

 

 

We had such a conversation.

 

Afterwards my mother went「That’s all I wanted to ask! Bye!

>And then she hung up on me.

 

 

She really only wanted to ask just that.

 

 

 

But at the same time, I realized I liked such pointless conversations about daily life.

 

 

 

Also! Another of my Nagasaki-based documentaries has been uploaded to YouTube!

Please watch it if you like!

This time it shows me walking around Nagasaki with my friends!

 

The 3 of us climbing the hills of Nagasaki, and eating stewed pork buns etc!

 

There’s a lot this time too!

When I watched it myself, more than just the nostalgia, I was really grateful to my 2 friends.

 

Thanks for always supporting and smiling at me!

 

Anyway!

The song I listened to today is KOKIA-san’s「Arigatou」!

 

 

The singing and the lyrics resonate within my heart.

 

When something important to you is always nearby, you tend to take it for granted, so you only realize how much it means to you after you lose it.

 

It’s a song that tells us not to take things for granted, but to be thankful that they exist at all!

 

This song sinks deep into my heart :!!:

 (This is yesterday’s post)

2 shows in a day!

Good evening^^

 

 

Today, the Hello!Pro Shop event’s emcee made a mistake with my name and called me「Tanaka Asahi」, but I’m Tasaki Asahi :bikkuri:

 

I was nervous too, but thanks to the emcee’s mistake, my anxiety melted away :nikoniko:

Thank you very much!^^*

 

Now then, the Hello!Pro Shop in Akibahara event has ended :redtulip:

To everyone who came in support, thank you very much!

 

 

There were some technical issues today, but I learned something new from that as well.

 

I got to sing Fukuyama Masaharu-san’s Sakurazaka for the first time in ages today!

 

It’s really been a while, and whenever I listen to it
I think it’s a really great song.

 

I sang Sakurazaka for the first show, but for the second I got to sing my as yet unreleased new song, Koi Gokoro :kirakira:

 

I was really nervous, but being able to sing it in front of everyone allowed me to figure out the parts where mistakes were easily made, among other things.

 

When I next sing this song, I will focus on these points for practice!

 

By the way, Koi Gokoro was uploaded as an unreleased song on satoyamachannel so please watch it if you like :music:

 

I’ll work hard for the next event :bikkuri:

 

I might just play that song next ^^

Injection ><

Good evening!

There’s a beautiful crescent moon today.

Can everyone see it from where they are?

 

On a different subject, it has finally come, the time to go for influenza shots in preparation for the cold of winter :!!:

 

 

I’m not really good at getting injections, and at the site of injection usually gets hot and swells and hurts and itches…it’s terrible :aseru:

I hope I don’t catch influenza though :dash:

Now that my shoulder pain is finally over, now a different kind of sensation is around my arm.

I was hoping it wouldn’t swell so I put a cold compress over it, I wonder if it works?

 

Now then, it’ll be my first time having 2 performances in a day tomorrow at Hello Shop!

 

 

I’m a little nervous but I’m looking forward to it too!

 

Please come watch if you can :sun:

 

 

Also, UF LICKS
Has been updated :kirakira:

 

Please watch it if you can :nikoniko:

Ghibli

Good evening!

 

It’s almost the season for Oden.

Today was apparently November(11, or ii/good) 7th(nana, or nabe/hot pot), orGood Hotpot Day.

By the way the ingredients I like in oden are radish and eggs ^^
I like things that are soft enough for the flavor to penetrate all the way in.

 

What does everyone like?

 

Now then, there were questions in the comments yesterday so I’ll answer them.

 

What is Asahi-chan’s favorite Ghibli movie?

If you’re talking about the musical side, it’s unquestionably「Princess Mononoke」!

 

Among the songs of Princess Mononoke, my favorite one is one of the BGM called「Ashita Kasseki」.

 

There is no disadvantage to listening to this song :bikkuri:
It is such a good song that I feel fortunate to have encountered it.

 

I encountered this song when I was still in elementary school, but it left a deep impression on me even then.

 

 

 

I deeply respect Hisashi Joe-san.

 

 

However, I’m slightly afraid of the Stag God that appears in Princess Mononoke.

 

Its face is really scary, and I still haven’t been able to look straight at it even up till now.

It’s not that stags are scary…

I’m still scared of it now, so I always close my eyes when I watch that scene in order to avoid it appearing in my dreams.

 

But I like Yakul!(The name looks like Yakult)

 

Origuchi-san is so cute, just like Gil-chan.

 

As for my favorite story-wise, even though I like them all, my especial favorites would be「Castle In The Sky」,「My Neighbour Totoro」and 「Spirited Away」.

 

You can make the bread Pazu makes in Castle in the Sky, but after watching the movie it looked so delicious that I wanted to eat it too :bikkuri:

 

 

For「My Neighbour Totoro」, I grew up with this anime and I feel that it taught me a lot of important things that I shouldn’t forget ^^

 

As for「Spirited Away」, I learned that no matter what people say to you, no matter how tough things are, as long as you work hard and overcome it, you will surely be happy one day.

Ghibli shocks and entertains people of all ages and has something to teach everyone♪

 

I want to watch it again :kirakira:

Today’s photo is of my afternoon snack!

Croissant with cream and chocolate in it is really delicious :nikoniko: But the matcha latte was really hot :aseru:

UF LICKS

Good evening!

 

I’ve been playing the piano so much recently that I haven’t been updating my blog, sorry :aseru:

 

Speaking of which, this is Tasaki who managed to recover from shoulder pain somehow!

I got a DVD as a present from the UF LICKS staff yesterday :!!:

 o0480080012741284793[1]

On the DVD it was written「Climb all the mountains, cross the rivers, chase the rainbows, and find your dreams」.

 

The story seems to be set in Salzburg, Austria, in the year 1938.

 

I haven’t watched it yet so I have no idea what it’s about, but the words written on the DVD really resonated with me.

 

I feel like I can continue working harder with this :bikkuri:

 

Well that was yesterday, but recently I’ve been having lessons before recording for UF LICKS.

 

 

And I usually arrive early for that…no, I don’t spend time eating pudding ^^

 

I come early to listen to music.

 

If I get nervous I find it difficult to project my voice, so I usually play music to relax and sing along with it!

 

I have fun and be able to loosen up my voice.
I have songs that always feel like I’m listening to it for the first time, and it’s always an inspiration to me
!

 

More than just killing two birds with one stone, it might even be three birds with one stone!

 

On UF LICKS I get to come into contact with lots of music I don’t normally touch ^^

 

 

By the way I listened to at least 4 different songs yesterday, but I’ll pick one of themThe famous song from Kiki’s Delivery Service「Yasashisa ni Tsutsumaretanara」!

 

I feel really gentle and nostalgic as I listen to it :dash:

 

I want to open a door to a new life, and go on an adventure!
Opening the curtains in the morning, the dazzling sunlight that floods in through the window.

After that as I listen to foreign oldies on Cube Radio, I welcome the morning while eating breakfast.
That’s the image I get in my head
!

Congratulations!

Good evening!

 

The cold winter wind has been blowing recently, and it has gotten remarkably cold.

 

 

And then with Rakuten’s win they are the best in Japan :bikkuri: :bikkuri:

Congratulations [*crackers*](*^▽^)/

 

I don’t know much about baseball, but it’s still amazing to know that they’re the best in Japan :kirakira:

 

I think that my fellow agency senpai Satoda Mai-san’s support for her husband in the shadows must have been a huge factor.

I feel touched by how the Tohoku people were brought to tears by this display of courage.

Congratulations :kirakira:

Now then, on a different topic, I rearranged my room layout today, and brought out my winter futon set :kirakira:

 

It’s gotten all snug and comfy, so I’m looking forward to sleeping!

 

Also, I went to Shinjuku yesterday!

 

I was surprised when it got dark even though it was still only around 4pm :bikkuri:

 

For this season in Nagasaki, it gets dark only around 6pm.
Night falls faster in Tokyo doesn’t it :aseru:

Finally, I have decided on the songs for the Hello!Pro Shop event on the 9th and 17th :bikkuri:

I’m going to practice straightaway!

I’m really nervous about how the event will turn out, but it’ll be great if it’s memorable!

 

Please come if you can!

 

The song I listened to today, in view of Rakuten’s victory, was mihimaruGT’s「Omedetou」!

 

 

In the PV, happiness overflows so much that you can’t help but smile along as well!

Even though it’s just the normal, everyday things, there are still so many things you can be congratulated for, and that makes me happy.

 

The most recent thing I was congratulated for was when I had an event in Nagasaki!

The word ‘congratulations’ made me really happy^^

The power of words is really amazing :dash:

 

Today’s photo is of the castella I got recently!

Somehow, it was castella from my favorite shop Fukusa-ya, it’s really delicious so I’m eating one every day :music:
