Saitou Fuyuka now stalking KobaYui: "It's not Pon-Inspection"

Oda Nana has been taking stalkerish photos of Kobayashi Yui for months now, and including them in a series she calls "Pon Inspection." Now Saitou Fuyuka has taken a couple of excellent shots of Pon unaware.

Harada Aoi blog: Onigiri, baseball, a yukata covered with kisses...plus birthday photos

Aoi's blog is often about food. In Thursday's post she was eager to eat the onigiri (filled rice-ball) you see in the pictures:

Nagahama Neru

Good evening!

To tell you the truth, my phone is broken.
It went underwater in the bath.

And on that day
I had promised to get together with Shii-chan...
Suddenly, I had no way of getting in touch with her.
So it was a last-minute cancellation.

Haaaaa ( ´ : ω : ` ) I'm sorry.
Let's get together soon.

An old interview: Some clues to Neru's personality

Late 2015
This is part of an early interview published by Hustle Press in December 2015. I just read it again and think there are some important clues here for understanding the complex personality of Nagahama Neru. So perhaps you would like to read it again, too.

After explaining the circumstances under which Neru joined Keyakizaka three months after everyone else -- her mother dragging her back from the final audition, then her parents relenting and asking management to give her another chance -- the short interview begins:

-- To begin with, what was it that made you come to like idols?

Nagahama: "In the upper grades of elementary school, I became a fan of AKB48. I fell in love with the drama Majisuka Gakuen and with Pony-tail to Shushu. Around that time, I entered the school's computer club and spent all my time watching AKB48 videos."

-- Computer club? That's a surprising choice.

Nagahama: "Yes. I was thinking technology was going to be important from then on (laughs). I was the only sixth-grade member, and the fifth-graders and I worked together to do the photography for the graduation album (laughs). At that time, I had never been to a handshake event -- I didn't have enough money to buy CDs -- and all I did was watch videos.

-- And as things went on, you became a Nogizaka46 fan?

Nagahama: "Yes. Around second year of middle school, I encountered Oide Shampoo, and became a fan. At that time, there still weren't any Nogizaka46 fans around me, and I was secretly proud that I had a group that only I liked."

Good evenng,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

My grandmother gave me a Shiro-tan tissue box!

Ah, this is not the Shiro-tan beef tongue from Negishi restaurant, it's the Shiro-tan character from Mother Garden toys.

I want to eat Shiro-tan  ~( ・∇・)

Keyakizaka46: A few suggestions for the 5th single senbatsu

Suggestions from Japanese fans for the new formation. Many people are thinking of Hirate at centre with new wingmen every time. And lots of people are thinking this is the time for the three members who have never been in the front line to get their chance (Habu, Ozeki and Nijika).

These are mainly suggestions from Japanese posters. I will put my own suggestions at the end: a couple of expectable ones and a couple of strange ones.

4th single senbatsu announcement

A full suggestion from someone:
Saitou - Oda - Harada - Suzumoto - Satou - Nagasawa - Yonetani
Moriya - Shida - Nagahama - Sugai - Koike - Imaizumi - Kobayashi
Uemura - Risa - Habu - Hirate - Ishimori - Rika - Ozeki

Someone else suggests that Techi and Neru should stay together. That would push Uemura or Rika back

Kakizaki Memi: Bad luck and how to overcome it


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Yesterday evening, when I was watching television, they did a ranking of birthdays by how good their luck would be this summer.

My birthday is December 12.

I thought it would be
In last place ~ (lol)

And it actually did end up in last place ( ºωº )チーン…

And then something bad really did happen today:
I was going though an open automatic door and it suddenly closed, hitting hard against my right side.

It huuuurt (ŏ﹏ŏ。)
The pain and the embarrassment were a double punch (›´A`‹ )
Suffering, I wrapped myself up in a blanket with UgaUga-chan and didn't come out
