An announcement

Good evening (*^^*)
This is Tsugunaga Momoko。

I believe that there may be people who already are aware of this、 but Inaba Manaka-chan will be taking a break from Country Girls’ activities for a while。

I apologise for this sudden announcement。

As she suffers from relapses of asthma, this is in order to focus on getting better。

In accordance with that、 our 3rd single events and the live tour that will be starting from now on will open with 6 people。

I truly feel that this is inexcusable to those who were looking forward to see us perform as 7 people。 I am truly sorry。

I’d be lying if I said that I don’t feel uneasy about this、 but in the meantime, until Manaka-chan becomes healthy again, the 6 of us will properly do our best to deliver performances with power and smiles in order to not make her worry about us!

We’ll do our utmost best to make up for Manaka-chan, so we beg all of you for your kind, warm support!

Manaka-chan, get well soon, okay (;_;)

Many people are suffering from the effects of the Kyushu earthquake the other day。

I believe that they are still continuing to face instabilities even now。

Putting thought into what we could do that could help in any small way、 we will be setting up a collection box at every concert and event venue that Hello! Project holds around the country、 and also、 at the Hello! Project official shop。

I’ll join in while doing what I can
I’d be glad if all of you lent us your cooperation as well。

Please see here for details。

I would like to express my heartfelt sympathies to everyone who suffered from the 「2016 Kumamoto Earthquakes」。

Realising the presence of a camera
Here’s a bonus Momochi 4337[1] Momo


In the middle of the show, my eyes met with Mickey’s
(Ah、 Momochi! Let’s both work hard as fellow poster childs of the world!!)
(Sure Mickey! Let’s send out smiles and energy to the whole world together!!)

We had that sort of tacit understanding with on another
I had so much fun. it was a luxurious time that went by in the blink of an eye 4529748[1] Momo4337[1] Momo

Day of our debut ♡

Good evening 2049[1] Ogata Momo Maimi

Today, the 25th of March
Is the anniversary of
Country Girls’ debut3582[1] Momo3582[1] Momo3582[1] Momo

Thinking that it’s been exactly one year since Country Girls made our debut, this one year really passed in the blink of an eye 4529748[1] Momo4518286[1] Momo

A year ago they were still delicate, and everything was new、 but now Risa-chan、 Manaka-chan、 Chisaki-chan、 and Mai-chan have rapidly developed into firm characters, they even teach Momochi how to dance

Since our 2 new members Nanami-chan and Musubu-chan have been added、 the 4 of them have become even more like older sisters 2049[1] Ogata Momo Maimi

The 2 new members are also promising, they’re so trustworthy that you wouldn’t think that they were newbies 3776 Momo

In 1 year’s time、 I wonder how they’ll have developed25735[1] Momo
I’m already looking forward to it 4222[1] ayumi Momo

Momochi will do her best too, so that she doesn’t lose to the growing teenagers 4518286[1] Momo4518286[1] Momo4518286[1] Momo4518286[1] Momo

Country Girls will be entering our 2nd year from today。 We beg for your kind, warm support from now on as well 4331[1] Momo4331[1] Momo4331[1] Momo

To Satoda Mai-san

「Momochi! I’ve got something to report!」
It really made me bolt upright with joy 2049[1] Ogata Momo Maimi


I got a report that she had given birth to a healthy baby boy
And that both mother and child were in good health
I wish I could see them soon 4518286[1] Momo
I want to carry him in my arms 4518286[1] Momo

To Satoda-san
She replied
「Please carry him (^^)」 4337[1] Momo
