Nagahama Neru blog: Fashion advertisements

Album!,   211

Nagahama Neru


I've been enjoying looking at photos of cuisine.

Cuisine in bright colours, beautifully laid out!
On the hardened shape of a cute plate!
A photo that seems to give off nice aromas!!

I want to go to all kinds of flea markets.
And find lots of wonderful plates and bowls.

This month's GINZA magazine.
I waited for it impatiently, and rushed over to the bookstore the day it was released.

Keyakizaka Bookseller: Kakizaki Memi

Every fortnight, a member of Keyakizaka46 is featured online as a bookseller at Tower Books and Records, and recommends two books.

Over the past few weeks, we have had Hiragana members Kageyama Yuuka, Sasaki Kumi, Ushio Sarina, Saitou Kyouko, Takamoto Ayaka, and Takase Mana. Before that were Kanji members Moriya Akane, Koike Minami, Ozeki Rika, Satou Shiori, Shida Manaka, Sugai Yuuka, and Oda Nana.

The latest Keyakizaka bookseller is Kakizaki Memi.

The books she recommends are the comic novel Shimotsuma Monogatari --Yankee Girl and Lolita-chan (下妻物語――ヤンキーちゃんとロリータちゃん), by Takemoto Novala (嶽本野ばら). The manga version is translated as "Kamikaze Girls." And her second book is the collection of horror stories Z001, by Otsuichi (乙一).

Kakizaki Memi: Hustle Press May 5 gravure and interview

Here's a translation catching up with the interview in Kakizaki Memi's May 5 gravure for Hustle Press. Along with a few of the photos, and a link to the rest.

-- When you hear the word "sparkling," what comes to mind?

Memi: What came to mind right now was a mall decorated for a party. In elementary and middle school, my friends and I had Christmas and Hallowe'en parties, and I enjoyed doing decorations every year. We made paper loops and hung things on them. Though I wasn't very good at it. (laughs).

-- And in your 15 years of life, is there a time when you think you sparkled?

Memi: Is it okay if I mention something from very long ago? In a play in nursery school, I played a princess. That may have been the time I sparkled most (laughs). We were doing The Golden Goose.

Kobayashi Yui welcomes new members

Here's an excerpt from Pon's blog posted Wednesday 14 June:

And the application period for auditions to join Hiragana Keyaki
Only has three days left now.

Up until August 2015, I was an ordinary first-year high-school student, too.

Nagahama Neru blog: On radio

A Gap, 210 

Nagahama Neru 


A day or two ago, I was given a chance to appear on the Rekomen! radio show.

Otenki Nori-san and Yukka and the staff
Created a wonderful atmosphere
That made it so much fun!!

I thought how nice it would be to have the blessing of work like that every week.
I love radio, so I was quite envious.

Thank you to everyone who listened (。・ω・。)
And thank you to Yukka, too ~.

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

We're doing POI lessons.

POI is difficult, but when you get to the point of being able to do it a bit, it's a lot of fun ( ・∇・)


And when we're resting, cherries.

Nagahama Neru blog: When the heart reacts

Flame Test

Nagahama Neru

Good evening.

Recently, I've fallen in love with dried flowers.
I'm drawn to the faded colours.

Basically, I don't believe anything
That I haven't seen or felt directly.

Nagahama Neru blog: Winter, summer, and shiso juice

Thread,  208

Nagahama Neru

Good evening!

Recently, I've become enamored with shiso juice.
I'm drinking cold pineapple-shiso-apple smoothies.

They're delicious, but they make my stomach cold ~
So I can't recommend them...but I like them!!
