Neru and the master painters of Keyakizaka

In episode five of Tokuyama Daigoro wo Dare ga Koroshita ka? there is a sequence in which most of the class is sitting in a circle around Neru pretending to draw her for art class. It turns out that many of them did in fact draw her. This is from Neru's blog post called "Drawing Paper":


In episode 5
There's a place where everyone is seated around me, drawing me,
And in everyone's drawings I'm amazing.


What is this?
This is the only one I couldn't stop laughing at.
(Of course it was done with tremendous effort. Thank you, eh.)

Kobayashi Yui: We will keep climbing the hill

Most members of Keyakizaka46 have made blog posts on the occasion of their first anniversary together. Many people think Kobayashi Yui's was the best:


Since that day ☆彡


Yesterday, the 20th of August
We had the chance to perform
At TV Asahi Summer Festival Summer Station.

We were actually able to do a live on a stage
right next to a fantastic place like Keyakizaka.

Thank you very much
to everyone who came.

Kageyama Yuuka (Hiragana Keyaki) on Keyakizaka46's 1st anniversary

Most members of Hiragana Keyaki have congratulated the Kanji Keyakis on their first anniversary. Here's Kageyama Yuuka's interesting post.

Kage-chan is a bright, talented and talkative 15-year-old who loves soccer and hasn't quite figured out how beautiful she can be.

But her intelligence and ambition are obvious in this passage about the past year, from her blog post of 23 August:


Yesterday was the first anniversary of the formation of Keyakizaka46
I loved them right from the start.
Every week I recorded and watched Keyakitte Kakenai? and collected magazines they appeared in

I was a normal fan.
That a year later I have become a member of Keyakizaka46 myself is something I think no-one imagined, and even now I can't really believe it.
