Kakizaki Memi blog: The tour begins, new glasses...plus Techi-Memi radio link


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

It's gotten to be a long time since I posted to the blog. I'm sorry m(__)m

The tour has finally started.
The first two performances,  8/2 and 8/3, were in Kobe.

Hiragana Keyaki did Dare yori mo Takaku Tobe! and our new song Eien no Hakusen!

Since we still have a number of places to perform this show, the details are secret,
But the version of Dare Tobe! we do has been upgraded.

Please look forward to it, everyone who's coming ✧*。

Roving-eyed otaku falls in love with Kakizaki Memi

A much-posting otaku calling himself Shuutta (twitter @mukaida46) says he's almost ready to believe that his reason for being born was to meet Kakizaki Memi.

Shuutta, who's a 19-year-old university student from Sapporo, buys a lot of CDs and sees a lot of idols at a lot of handshake events, Keyakizaka and otherwise. But he has become a Memi ota (as you can see from his twitter page), and after the Nagoya handshake event a couple of weeks ago, he appears to have totally fallen for her.

He had several exchanges with her again at this handshake event. Then after the lane was closed for one session, he and another well-known otaku hung around outside Memi's area and she played a bit of hide-and-seek with them, popping out from various places to taunt them.

And on the Sunday, Shuutta was one of those chosen for a special event where members sign things you own. (He had to buy even more CDs for the lottery, I believe.)

She wrote on his cap that she loved him. I think that did it, lol.

I believe this is he, from a TV interview. The caricature portrait of him below is by Memi, done at a previous special event. On it, she wrote: "Handsome (lol)."

Suzumoto Miyu is the Princess of the Mona Kingdom: the subject who loves freedom second only to Manaka herself. So says a piece in the September issue of BUBKA magazine.

Keyakizaka46 August member greeting cards (with some translation)

Here are the members' greeting cards for August. I saw a comment that the Hiraganas' cards (the 12 at the bottom of the page here) have too many words on them! Lots of comments about the national tour, TIF, summer foods, and the heat.

Nijika: "This August, every day is Keyakizaka Day!" Koike's card is excellent as usual. Yui-chan (Kobayashi) and Aoi both do good maps of the national tour. Shii-chan's formal kanji suggest she thinks this month will be frantic. Yukka's Tom on a desert island is fun. Miyu's little fish seem to be moving quickly (like her). Naako gives us two comics this month. Hirate's portrait is as awful as usual, and even more mysterious. Katoshi's bears are growing on me. Kyonko does a vivid page of fireworks. No card from Zumiko.

Kakizaki Memi interview: "Yurina and I"

Yurina and I

A world of their own, where the two are neither "members" nor "classmates."

With her dainty frame and good looks, she seems like a doll. But Kakizaki Memi's appeal does not lie in that alone. In fact, she bears a strong will and is fighting to succeed as an idol. Doesn't it seem almost inevitable that she would become friends with that other straight-ahead girl? Is it Kakizaki Memi's reality that only Hirate Yurina is reflected in her eyes?
