Kakizaki Memi blog: UVERworld today, handshake tomorrow


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Today UVERworld was on M-Station, eh \♥/
Of course I watched in real time!
They were so extremely fine that my heart-rate went up (*˙˘˙*)!
I want to go to a live....

Tomorrow is the Kyoto individual handshake event!
I'll be wearing something that makes you say: "This is summer!"

Hmm. I wonder what it'll be  ~ ~ ♥

Look forward to it ~ ~ ♥

I like this pose.

Bye-bye, see you tomorrow.

The handshake event is on right now, and as expected from this post, Memi is wearing a yukata. 

The Japanese title is "natsu-poi-poi." "Natsu-poi" would mean "just like summer" ("natsu" is summer).

Want to know more about the members of Hiragana Keyaki?

More people seem to be beginning to take an interest in Hiragana Keyakizaka46, but may be having trouble finding out much about them. I've put together a list of links that could help.

front (l-r): Katou Shiho, Takamoto Ayaka, Nagahama Neru, Saitou Kyouko, Sasaki Kumi
rear: Ushio Sarina, Iguchi Mao, Sasaki Mirei, Kakizaki Memi, Higashimura Mei, Takase Mana, Kageyama Yuuka

First, there is my Keyakizaka46 Member Chart, which includes the Hiraganas, giving pic, info and comments for each one. I keep it fairly up to date.

The list starts there and goes on to performances, appearances on the Keyakizaka TV shows, posts from my blog, gravure photos, etc.

I've been a fan of the Hiraganas for over a year, ever since the members' live auditions on Showroom last April-May. I think they all have talent in one or more directions, and are all interesting characters. Their first one-man performance, last October, amazed me with its quality. Unaccompanied singing. Decent versions of Keyakizaka46 hits.

But here's the list of links:

Kakizaki Memi blog: Spoon, roller coasters


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Here's something rather funny that happened recently:

The other day when I went out to eat,
I wanted to get a spoon, but there was somehow a different-shaped object in among them.
"What's this?" I wondered, and when I looked at it, it was a measuring spoon. (lol)

It was just a different kind of spoon (´•ω•`)
So why shouldn't I eat with it (´•ω•`)

Please don't misunderstand, everyone ( ・∇・)

On the day of Keyaki Republic 2017, I rode the Do Dodonpa and Fujiyama roller coasters!
It was so much fun! Invigorating!

I'd like to ride them again \♥/

Nagahama Neru blog: Loving the songs, studying how they're made

Hug,  221

Nagahama Neru

Good evening.

I've been listening to the album,
Masshiro na Mono ha Yogoshitakunaru.

Ballet to Shounen
Shoujo ni Modorenai
and Chinmoku Shita Koibito.

Today is an eternal repeat day for these three songs.
I really love them.

Adding the dance movements to them
Makes me love them even more.

I've begun watching Kan Jam
(Because Takahiro-sensei was going to be on)
To learn to notice the fine points of how a song is made.

And I think how rich
Keyakizaka songs are.

The lyrics, of course,
But the melody and the instrumentation and the sound effects...!
I want to analyze them in detail.

Keyaki Republic 2017

Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Yesterday and the day before, we put on the "Keyaki Republic 2017" live at Fuji-Q Highlands' Conifer Forest.

Shooting water, fireworks being let off,
It was a live with the feeling "Summer~~!!!"  (*˙˘˙*)!

Shida Manaka blog: Blessed to be in Keyakizaka


Shida Manaka

Thank you very much for the live on the 22nd and 23rd!

It was so much fun.

For me, it was the best ever.

I happily did my best with the members and the staff as a team.

As long as there is a place called "Keyakizaka," I will be blessed.

And now I'll do my best on the tour.

Good evening.
Sorry for being so late to post.

Thank you to everyone who came to Keyaki Republic 2017!!

It was our first open-air one-man live, and all the members were excited about it from the start, so it's a relief that it went off well.
