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）
Everyone in the whole country!
Please sincerely be careful
In regard to the typhoon, okay
Today, to the people
Who came to the handshake event in the rain
Thank you so very much
Try not to catch a cold, okay
I’m changing the subject, but
Momochi the other day despite being an idol
Went shark fishing~
As it stands
I want to upload a photo, but
Dropped the cellphone in the sea
I don’t have any pictures~ (lol)
The cute photos you can’t see
I feel sorry for everyone, however
I also feel sorry for Manager-san, you know
To make up for it
I’ll show a picture
From the other day when I got to be together with
Hashimoto Kanna-chan, okay!!
Hm, I still put on airs
I’ll do it next time
Nippon TV “Miss Cast”*
Watch my shark fishing, okay!
*T.N.: The show title means “miscasting”.
Berryz Koubou’s 36th single, which will be on sale on November 12th, “Romance wo Katatte/Towa no Uta” will be a companion last single to the group activities hiatus this coming Spring.
I have a lot of feelings of gratitude about our being able to find ourselves in the amazing circumstances of our 10 years of activities and putting out 36 singles
The last single which is supposed to commemorate, the last single which is an appropriate, lovely song has been finished
“Romance wo Katatte” is the feelings of a dreaming girl sung by the lovely members
10 years ago is when Berryz Koubou came to be, we had a lot of dreams that pointed towards a major debut.
The reality is being booed…being called at most not cute…were very many awakenings (lol), all the fans, all the otomomochi caused me to have a lot of happy dreams
For granting the innumerable dreams such as being able to reach our 10 year anniversary, our Nippon Budoukan performance, the record for the youngest at Saitama Super Arena, expanding overseas, etc. truly thank you very much
Furthermore “Towa no Uta” is a song about the irreplaceable vacancy of the members together with whom I’ve run swiftly for 10 years, reflecting on mostly happy times, that will connect to the next stage
“After announcing our activities hiatus, the time being with the members is truly a precious thing” I actually feel that everyday
With the members being called the word “Otomomochi” we’ve gotten a relationship that I’m unable to express in words. I spend more time together with them than with my family, with childhood friends there’s just a smidgen of difference…at any rate they’re important beings.
“This “Towa no Uta” has become a song that is able to transmit Berryz Koubou,” I think
Until this coming Spring I’ll try my best with all my might!
Until then I want to broaden Berryz Koubou’s charm to a lot of people!
Because of that, everyone please check out our last single
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!?).
From yesterday has begun the
Berryz Koubou 10 Year Commemoration Concert Tour ~Real Berryz Koubou~
I’m quite excited!!
“There have been various things these 10 years~”
While singing and dancing I earnestly feel that today and recently…
Finally tomorrow on March 3rd
It’ll be a full 10 years
“Tomorrow, I won’t forget my feelings of gratitude from up until now, if I can perform with all my might,” I think
And I have a report!
Since Spring of 2009 I’ve been obliged
To do the cultural broadcastBerryz Koubou Tsugunaga Momoko’s Huffy Princessthat is coming to an end at the end of March!
Thanks to this program I was taught the joy of telling stories!
Thank you so very much

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.
