Kakizaki Memi blog: Sasaki Mirei's writing mistakes


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Recently, Sasaki Mirei's writing mistakes have been (hilariously) terrible.

Do you all read Mii-pan's blog?

I laughed when she wrote "Live Vuyuing" [ライブブューイング]
For "Live Viewing" [ライブビューイング].

"Vuyu..." I mean, how do you even pronounce that? (lol) 

Even earlier, there was her writing "Decopene" instead of "Lycopene."
(I was the one who told her about Lycopene, and I really did tell her "Lycopene"!)

And "Pink Tempun" instead of "Sakura Denbu" ["pink starch" instead of "cherry-blossom fish-flakes"]

What a baka (๑¯∇¯๑)

Nagahama Neru blog: The work of an idol

Random Thoughts,  205

Nagahama Neru

Good evening~

There's a show I love.
It's NHK's "Job Discovery," in which
Entertainers try out different occupations.
It's not being broadcast now, however...

I watched it when I was in middle school,
And realized that
There were all kinds of work in the world
I had the vague feeling that they all were worth doing
But also had their disagreeable aspects.

"Ah, I want to go to work soon," I thought.

(Better to see this from an elementary- and middle-school point of view!!!)

Now it has somehow turned out
That I am working as an idol
(I'm intentionally presenting "idol" as an occupation.)

Although we today
Are not in the image I used to have of idols as
Beings above the clouds who may or may not exist.

Here in an age when all kinds of media are so developed,
Some kind of information is coming out every minute, every second.

Nagahama Neru blog: Vintage clothing, Hiragana auditions

Potassium,   204

Nagahama Neru

Good evening.

Recently, I went to shop at the vintage clothing shop
Marte, in Harajuku!

[Neru at MARTE with the magazine she and Manaka are on the cover of]

It's the shop photographed for Souen magazine!
And all the clothes we wore for the cover were from MARTE!

Kakizaki Memi blog: A sense of accomplishment, plus pics of Namba live

Zepp Namba

Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

I apologize for being late to post m(._.)m
After a live event, I always worry over what to write, and end up being late.

The Zepp Namba live
Was the most fun so far!

Afterward, the sense of accomplishment was amazing!~

Nagahama Neru blog: The Hiragana live was terrific

I like hot-pot

Nagahama Neru

Good evening!

Zepp Namba was terrific

Even though there were lots of things to work on,
It was good that Hiragana Keyaki could do a one-man live.

Having the live viewings all around the country
Was really an unbelievable honour!
We felt tied to all of you who were far away.

Thank you very much
To all of you who came,
And to all of you who gave us your support!!!!

Anyway, it was fun ( *˙-˙* )

It has been a while since I posted this many pictures:

Keyakizaka46 members' June greeting cards

Keyakizaka members' personally-drawn greeting cards for June. Kanji members first, then Hiragana members.

Lots of good cards this month. Special efforts from Kobayashi Yui and Moriya Akane. The Satou Shiori card I've enjoyed most.  Another manga from Naako. Something simple but good from Habu. Nice drawing from Berika. And I always enjoy Memi's simple art.

No card from Imaizumi: she's still not well enough to take part in group activities, it appears.

Ishimori Nijika 石森虹花 -- Summer's coming, but first a month filled with rain. I hate rain, but I'll ignore it and have a good month.

Hiragana Keyaki gen2 auditions now open!

Full details of the auditions for additional members for Hiragana Keyaki have been posted on the Keyakizaka46 official site.

Submissions will be received until 16 June. The first stage is the application form I posted about earlier, in which applicants answer questions about themselves and include a short video.

The second stage will be screen tests conducted staff, to be given in various cities around Japan --  Nagoya, Fukuoka, Osaka, Tokyo, Sapporo and Sendai -- between July 1 and July 23. For candidates who survive those stage, there will be a third audition on August 5-6.

The final audition will be on August 11or August 13. One of those will be the date we can expect the new members to be introduced.

Kakizaki Memi blog: Hiragana live in Osaka Wednesday


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening.
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Tomorrow is the day of Hiragana's national tour performance in Osaka!
My first time in Osaka!
I look forward to it---!

I'll do my best (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

I hope I can eat some takoyaki...

Everyone who comes to Zepp Namba, or to the other live viewings, let's have fun together!

Oh, yes. There are tickets available on the day for the live viewings.
So for those who haven't yet got tickets, there is still...(ฅ•ω•ฅ)♥

Look forward to it (*˙˘˙*)!

Iguchi Mao, Kageyama Yuuka and I are in the monthly Entame magazine that comes out today.
We talk about the Zepp Tokyo live and give our thoughts about tomorrow at Zepp Namba.

Kakizaki Memi blog: Not good at smiling


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening.
It's Kakizaki Memi.

In a salad I ate recently, there was a vegetable that looked as if it had a lot of water droplets on it.

The name seems to be "iceplant."

What is this? It doesn't look as if it tastes very good...

That's what I thought, but I went ahead and ate it.
I thought it would just be another tasty vegetable, but it was something I wasn't used to (lol).

It was so moist and crisp. Fun to eat.

I came to like it quite a bit.

I haven't seen it for sale in the supermarket or anywhere.
I wonder where you can get it.

Everyone, if you see iceplant, please give it a try.

I thought I'd try smiling (o´罒`o)

I'm not very good at smiling. Please forgive me  ( ´・・)ノ
I'll practice...

Hirate x Japanese sword

Just a reminder of how good Hirate looked with that sword in last December's Brody magazine: sharp as a blade.

Suzumoto Miyu shows how she stops Oda Nana from reading

On Keyakitte, Kakenai last week (#83/170528), Oda Nana complains about people disturbing her when she's reading.

Suzumoto Miyu is one of the culprits she mentions. So Miyu comes down and shows us how she does it:

That's Yonetani Nanami's great smile in the background. Miyu has been playing a running gag (true or false) for the past couple of months, with herself as the suitor whom Oda ignores in the same way that Kobayashi ignores Oda.

Don't you love how she rushes the last few steps?

Nagahama Neru blog: Souen photo-shoot, handshake power-up

Eyelashes,   201

Nagahama Neru

Good evening!

Manaka and I are on the cover of the
Souen magazine that came out yesterday, the 27th.

I've always loved to read it.
For me, it's like a picture book packed with emotion.
To be published in a magazine I love so much
Is truly, truly an honour.

During the shoot, as I saw this world I admire spreading out before my eyes
I was in a state of constant excitement.

It made me want to study the world of clothing more!

Kakizaki Memi blog: handshake, nyan-nyan...haircut?

I want to cut it ~、、、('ー')

Kakizaki Memi

Good evening.
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Yesterday was the individual handshake event at Makuhari.

My outfit
Was a uniform from
