Kakizaki Memi blog: UVERworld's new single

One drop...

Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

I love UVERworld, and on February 1st their new song
Itteki no Eikyou ("The Effect One Drop Can Have") came out!

I bought it on the day it came out ~(*´-`)

Itteki no Eikyou is really a good song...
I felt like crying (*ToT)

I really like the coupling song Emu, too!

UVERworld's lyrics reach my heart (´ー`*)

Ahh. I want to go to a live~~!!!!

All of UVERworld's songs are good. Please have a listen, everyone ♪

 Snow 。.:*:・’゚ヽ(゚●_゚

There's snow in Yamagata, and it's cold
But compared to Tokyo there's very little wind
So you don't feel very cold at all!

Saitou Kyouko blog post: I don't dye my hair! plus pics with Neru

Hair colour

Saitou Kyouko

[Nagahama Neru, Saitou Kyouko]

I'm often asked: "Is your hair dyed?"

In high school, when they checked our hair, a teacher often took note of mine. But up to now I have never once dyed my hair! ( ˙o​˙ )

Can it go brown just from the dryer or an iron?

Kakizaki Memi blog: healthy again and wanting to go skiing

Here are Memi's past two posts, the more recent one first:


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening.
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Today we plunge into February!
February is the coldest (?) time of the year, isn't it  ( •﹏• )

Please wear warm clothing, and keep healthy, avoiding colds (。・・。)♡

My new greeting card is up.
Uga-Uga's on it (lol).
If you like, please take a look. [note: see bottom of this page]

At this point, I want to ski and snowboard so badly I can hardly bear it...
When I was little, I used to go all the time, but not recently...
I'd like to go skating, too.
And sledding might be nice...(lol)

Nagahama Neru blog: hard work and procrastination

Idol, 163

Nagahama Neru

Good evening~

Today is already February
It has been warmer recently, hasn't it.

My goal is "not to procrastinate"  (。・ᴗ・。)

As soon as I get home, though
I just temporarily turn on the TV and dive into bed. Every day.

As I watch TV I think:
"In five minutes I'll get into the bath....
"Wah, only three minutes left.
"One minute....

"...no, I'll go at the next commercial."

That kind of life.
Every day I have the feeling that somethings's after me,
I can't relax at all (´・_・`)

As soon as I get to the bath, I start to do some laundry...!
I want to live in a more leisurely way.


Keyakizaka46 members seeing members of AKB, TGS, SuperGirls

In the members' blogs just now there is a run of two-shots of Keyakizaka46 members with members of other idol groups: Oda Nana with Kawamoto Saya of AKB48. Nagasawa Nanako with Shouji Mei of Tokyo Girls' Style. Ishimori Nijika with Watanabe Koume of SUPER☆GiRLS -- and with Ikoma Rina of Nogizaka46.

Oda says she went out to eat recently with Sayaya, and that they are the same age (18), so it's easy to talk:

Satou Shiori blog post: fired up to go on with Keyakizaka46

Fired up

Satou Shiori

Good evening --
It's Satou Shiori!!

Recently, I haven't been able to conquer myself~
It's no good~~
I keep thinking I have to be stricter with myself.

That may sound negative,
But it isn't.

I'm being forward-looking.

I want to improve my performance much, much more.
I'm really grateful that I have gotten so much opportunity to perform in front in this third single.
It started me thinking of getting stronger.

When I was in the third row,
I was easy on myself, using as an excuse the idea that
In the back, no-one sees me.

Kobayashi Yui photos: Oda Nana's "Pon Inspection" Series

Back in the spring of 2016, Oda Nana began taking -- sometimes sneaking -- photos of Kobayashi Yui, whom she says she adores. This became the Pon Kansatsu ("Pon Inspection") series, and has now stretched to 36 images. Buckle your seatbelts, here we go! Source.

Prologue,  9 April 2016: Neverending love.

Neru talks philosophy with Playboy magazine

Nagahama Neru (Kanji/Hiragana Keyakizaka46) discusses philosophy? "Won't readers find this boring...?"

Weekly Playboy news interview with the idol to watch in 2017.

Keyakizaka46 only made its debut in April of 2016, but still appeared on NHK's year-end Kouhaku show. Here is Nagahama Neru, who is part of both Kanji Keyakizaka46 and Hiragana Keyakizaka46. What kind of girl is she, anyway?

*       *      *

-- As the idol selected by Weekly Playboy news as its idol to watch, please just answer our broad questions in a relaxed way: "What kind of personality does our idol-to-watch have?" and "What are your goals for this year?"

Nagahama -- Thank you very much.

-- Nagahama-san, what kind of personality do you think you have?

Nagahama -- Basically, I'm a worrier.

-- Worrier. You mean you worry over things too much?

Nagahama -- No matter what little thing I say, I really worry: "Maybe what I said hurt her." And if I think it has, I apologize... I probably did this most when I was in middle school.

-- For example?

Nagahama -- Oh, something like going home with a girl and talking, and she says: "I wonder if I should cut my hair." And I reply: "Oh, that would be good. It might give an adult feeling."

-- But that's quite a normal conversation.

Nagahama -- Well, after saying that, I would think things like: "Maybe she doesn't want people to say she looks grown up.... Maybe she wants to look young.... Maybe what I said so casually ended up hurting her..." And then after I get home, I go out again to her house and apologize. But usually she didn't mind at all. That kind of thing happened again and again.
