An announcement concerning Inaba Manaka。

This may be sudden, but I have an announcement for all of you。

Country Girls’ Inaba Manaka-chan、
Will be taking a break from Country Girls activities for a while。

She’s had asthma ever since she was young、 though the symptoms lessened as she grew. But, from around the end of last year, the symptoms broke again, increasingly so。

Recently、 there have been successive days where she was unable to appear at events and such. Having discussed it herself with her family, doctors, and the office, she will undergo treatment from now on。


I think that she herself must feel extremely frustrated、 so I’m really worried about her asthma、 as well as her mental state、 but I’m sure that your unwavering support will become Inaba-chan’s strength。

Now, I would like her to not rush, and rest her heart and body。
We too shall be rooting for Inaba-chan’s return。
I’ll be waiting for the day where we’ll once again sing and dance together as members of Hello! Project。

Hello! Project Leader Yajima Maimi

Airi vs Maimi

*seething* o(TωT )

Airi-san did it。。。_| ̄|○


She already found itー(°_°)

When we met today、

『Yajiー! I found it ( ̄▽+ ̄)』

Was the first thing out of her mouth \(゜□゜)/


『Eh? :sweat: No way?? ( ゚д゚) How’d you find out?? I thought you’d definitely take over a monthー(iДi) Urgghhh o(;△;)o』

I retract my words
You、 you’re pretty capable~(; ̄ェ ̄)

I have been defeated。。。



To those of you who are thinking ‘What are you talking about??’ :sweat:
Please go back and look through the blog posts by Airi and me _| ̄|○

You’re still not there yet〜! lol

Hohhohho ( ̄▽ ̄)‼︎

You’re still too green!( ̄▽ ̄)1075 Zukki Eripon Sayu Ogata Haga Airi Maimi


Airi wrote

‘Still not there yetーー Sheeshーー*\(^o^)/* lol’


In her blog post yesterday

Airi still hasn’t noticed it yet~( ̄▽+ ̄)*grin*

It’s not going to end with just that, rightー( ̄ー☆*hehhehheh*

Hurry up and notice~(-з-) lol

I think you must be feeling like

‘What did you do~?’、:sweat:28005[1] Maimi

But until Airi-san notices、
Let’s wait together 4535877[1] Maimi4535977[1] Maimi

It’s just that、、、

Because it concerns Airi-san、
I feel that it still won’t be settled after a month~( ̄* ̄ )

Notice it! Notice it!(。・ε・。)

Here’s a belated

Good morning (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

I hope that today will be a wonderful day (*^.^*)

Bringing the scene of a backstage dressing room to the public!

We’re done with the 2nd day of Hello! Project concerts in Nagoya 4535876[1] Maimi4535975[1] Maimi

Before the performance、 I entered Country Girls’ dressing room 4535876[1] Maimi

They hadn’t appeared in these outfits before the performance、
So I couldn’t make it a live broadcast _| ̄|○

It’s a delayed broadcast 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi


Facing the mirror、 doing up her hair…

Inaba Manaka-chan 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi


She looked over here 4540173[1] Maimi\(//∇//)\
Manakan is outgoing and always smiling 4535880[1] Maimi4535876[1] Maimi

There’s a Manakan highlight in this concert~(≧▽≦)
It’s really stylish (ノ´▽`)ノ4540173[1] Maimi
I was charmed~4538906[1] Maimi



I found a girl facing the desk, earnestly scribbling down something _φ(・_・


*glance* 4540173[1] Maimi


How lovely 4540173[1] Maimi
This is Yamaki Risa-chanー4540173[1] Maimi4540173[1] Maimi4540173[1] Maimi

I talked with her backstageー4537441[1] Maimi

Yamaki-chan、 she heaped praise unto me…(>人<;)
It was embarrassing、 so I won’t write about it here :sweat:

You know what、 thank you ;^_^A4540173[1] Maimi

The thing she was writing on might become promotional goods someday 4535880[1] Maimi4535876[1] Maimi
Look forward to it~4537444[1] Maimi4538715[1] Maimi

Going deeper、 there were these two 4538906[1] Maimi4535880[1] Maimi


Staring at the mirror、 doing something~(o^^o)


*glance glance*4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi

In their new song 『Wakatteiru no ni Gomen ne』、 the 2 of them were going out with one another
But normally they’re always together too~4541952[1] Maimi4535880[1] Maimi

Isn’t it a soothing sight?4541952[1] Maimi

When the Haro! Sute edit of the music for 『Wakatteiru no ni Gomen ne』、

Was put up on the YouTube programme 『Haro! Sute』、 I watched it repeatedly、 countless times 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi

I’m sure I pushed up the view count quite high! lol

It’s so cute that you heart skips a beat、
So it’s a must-see for everyone 4537598[1] Maimi4537598[1] Maimi4537598[1] Maimi


Finally with Momo-baa, Tsugunaga Momoko-chan 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi


Recently I’ve really gotten into calling her 『Momo-baa』 4541952[1] Maimi lol ( ̄▽ ̄)

Well、 for that、
If you check out their new song、 you’ll get it 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi

Our eyes always meet when we’re on the stage rehearsing for the Hello! Project concerts、、、

But today、 I was engrossed playing around with Airi、
I forgot to look at Momo-baa and she got madー(・Д・)ノ

I’m sorry, gomennasai ne4537422[1] Maimi


And with this and that、
At the Hello! Project concerts、

Whether backstage、 or stage front、
I really enjoy myself 4541952[1] Maimi4541952[1] Maimi4541952[1] Maimi

Thump!( ゚д゚)

Let me talk about this morning…4535876[1] Maimi

Someone grabbed my shoulder at the station、
Squeeze! ( ゚д゚)

『Yajima-san, right??(・∀・)』


Taken by surprise、
I went 『Whoa!\(゜□゜)/』、

Super surprised, I turned back






It turned out to be


Tsugunaga Momoko、 23 years old。。。(T ^ T)



Stop doing things like that in the morning~ぅ26315[1] Maimi
It’s hard on my heart~_| ̄|○

Momochi was lively in the morning 4535967[1] Maimi:sweat:

She went and did itー!

The other day、 I was making mixed juice with my mother in the morning 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi

We put peaches and bananas and honey and milk
In our new juicer、
And let it spiーーn4535974[1] ayumi Maimi4535970[1] ayumi Maimi

But then、 when we were going to pour it into a glass、
Thinking about something、
My mother didn’t open the lid、 but instead opened the bottom part、

What we had made a moment ago、 the freshly mixed juice、 fell with a splendid splashー :sweat: in the kitchen!

It was new、 but even if you say that we hadn’t gotten familiar with how to use it、

We’d cut the bananas、 peeled the skin of the peaches、 and without getting to drink it、 it ended with us scrubbing the floor。。。 lol


Well、 that’s how the Yajima household is (^◇^;)

With a sorryーー>_<6087 Airi Maimi my mother was overwhelmed、

But I couldn’t stop laughing! lol

It was a lively morning \(//∇//)\


And、 today it was a complete success 4535975[1] Maimi4535977[1] Maimi

Mixed juice made from bananas and apples and honey and milk 4537441[1] Maimi4537439[1] Maimi4537438[1] Maimi

Good morning 4535975[1] Maimi4535977[1] Maimi

Yesterday morning、
When I was brushing my hair with a comb、

The moment the comb hit the peak of my head

Ouch ( ゚д゚)、 Like what was that (°_°)


What could it beー?!(◎_◎;)
I frantically searched within myself、

And I got it 4535880[1] Maimi4535970[1] ayumi Maimi

The other day、 I hit my head HARD on the corner of a ventilation fan (+_+)

Looks like it ended up making a bump! lol

It’s been a while since I had a bumpー26315[1] Maimi4535876[1] Maimi lol

Going through my day normally、 I forgot about it、

But at night、 when I was washing my hair in the bath
And when I was drying my hair with the hairdryer

I was like ouch!(◎_◎;)、
Which made me remember (☆。☆)

Everyone、 please be careful about things that protrude outwards…|( ̄3 ̄)|

Wellー4537444[1] Maimi4538804[1] Maimi

And with that、 let’s enjoy
