after Michishige-san graduates
℃-ute’s Yajima Maimi-chan
that I’m full of eagerness to become leader！…
「I want to follow you」
and 99％ haven’t done
I can only go on as a self-styled leader
or a leader in the shadows！（lol）
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
Berryz Koubou Tsugunaga Momoko
*T.N.: Special thanks to Skoban and maxperkins84 for those two lines. The second line is also a reference to their song “Futsuu, Idol 10nen Yatterannai Desho!?” (Normally, People Aren’t Idols for 10 Years, Are They!?).
On NHK “Souhoukou Quiz Tenkatouitsu”
I get to perform
This time’s theme is
Together with Momochi
Let’s aim at the reunification of the whole country*
Please collaborate with me
With “Souhoukou Quiz Tenkatouitsu”, we’re performing an audience participation type quiz program ”capture the country” battle with quiz results.
All the audience participates in taking the quiz with the respondents, with a “capture the base”** battle formula we’ll aim at the reunification of the whole country.
The decisive battle is March 8th (Sat.)!

Advanced registration acceptance commences right away!
Please participate in the data broadcasting from the smart phone website.

Let’s try our best together
T.N.: *”Tenkatouitsu” means “Reunification of a whole country”.
**”Jintori” (literally “base/camp taking”) is a “children’s game in which the aim is to occupy the other’s home base”, similar to a cross between king of the hill and capture the flag.
An important notice

For the first time
I got to cast a magic spell
On Mr. Magic-san
What was it like?
Momochi was trembling~
Please watch without fail
Is a White Valentine’s, you know
Yesterday night Momochi
To say nothing of the appearance
The flavor of gold medal grade cookies
While overflowing with a lot of happiness…
Perhaps the happiest person in Japan now
I met her today at recording
Today on Valentine’s
She was entered into the family register, therefore…
Seemed very happy
Her eyes were sparkling
She was grinning from beginning to end (lol)
She seemed very happy
I was glad to tell her “Congratulations” directly
Even at such a time, even as two people
Please overcome this
…Ah! Have a happy life
Be happy forever
*T.N.: Somehow this part is even vaguer in English, but basically Ai told Momoko what’s in the pink brackets and Momoko wants her to overcome that.
Cirque du Soleil-san’s
I watched it~
It was amazing!
Even if I presented it with the three letters of “amazing”*
It wouldn’t have been as amazing!
Because the theme this time was insect,
It was a lovely performance
It was a breathtaking performance,
It was a dynamic performance,
It was a twisting and turning performance…
It doesn’t seem like they could be the same people
It was the highlight of the performance
I just watched it yesterday, however
I want to go see it again today…
These details aren’t in full
I’m impatient, but
It was so much more amazing than I had imagined
I saw it together with Kojiruri-chan
We two were shrieking with laughter
Even though it’s been a day
The lingering memory isn’t fading…
Please watch without fail
*T.N.:”Amazing” has three letters/kana in Japanese; “すごい” read “sugoi”.
Just a moment ago
I become much obliged to them~
As the secret guest
I was able to appear
“My, Tsugunaga Momoko’s nickname
Momochi‘s next nickname
Let’s think about it!” with this
Tamori-san named me for me!
Here it is
But this personality of Momochi
But, for some reason it’ll stick
But, you know,
Tamori-san spoke these kind
Words to Momochi
You’ve gotten slim since three weeks ago?”
He said that!!!
On the previous Iitomo-san
That I got to perform on
I had gotten just a little bit big
Momochi’s gotten fat
That sound didn’t stop ringing, however
From Tamori-san such
Genial words I received
Thank you very much
Acting, will try her be~st
