I have a report for everyone.
Berryz Koubou will go on hold this coming Spring
Having entered into an indefinite haitus.
Debuting on March 3rd, 2004
This year it’s been 10 years since then.
When we debuted all the members were in elementary school, all the members have grown up now respecting each other and having discussed our own prospects as well as the results.
The announcement was made at Tokyo Nakano Sunplaza, the stage we stood on for the first time as Berryz Koubou for our debut.*
Momochi is really interested in herself
Except I don’t have much admiration for myself…
I truly love Berryz Koubou
Berryz Koubou was my entire youth
“The very important Berryz Koubou
Seems to be breaking up”
Having the feeling that that existence itself will die, is somewhat lonely…
I’m glad that amongst the fans we will continue to be Berryz Koubou, you know
It’s out of the question to call this a breakup
It was decided to be called an “indefinite hiatus”
We will always enjoy Berryz Koubou from the bottom of our hearts
And we will always mess around with all our power!
I love this kind of space
We just keep messing around, however in our own way with all our might we thought about the conclusion.
All the fans
Thank you very much for always truly supporting us a lot.
Everyone’s support always became our emotional support. ”For this reason, we’ve been able to continue for 10 years”, I think.
For getting to know and coming to like Momochi’s treasured Berryz Koubou, truly thank you
Nonetheless, there’s still more time to come!
After this I’ll try my best more than up till now!
Berryz Koubou, which got used to Momochi, who’s normally said to be an oddball for some reason, isn’t normal!! (lol)*
After this, please continue to be Berryz Koubou’s support like this
