Kakizaki Memi blog: Magazine feature with 2gens


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

I'm always thinking I'd love to go to the ocean.
I dreamed that at the ocean I gathered sea-slugs.

In my dream, I could do anything I thought of.

It was fun (^-^)

Hiragana Keyaki: Looking back at Budoukan with Mirei, Memi and Mao.

interview from Nikkei Entertainment (2018/05)

Hiragana Keyaki's Legendary Budoukan 3-Day Live

Looking back with Mirei, Memi and Mao

Kakizaki Memi (Doll girl gets revenge for Makuhari)
     Sasaki Kumi (Awakens as centre in Ima ni Miteiro)
          Iguchi Mao (Grows with everyone's support)

-- The Budoukan live was suddenly increased from one to three days. You must have been shocked when you were first told.

Kakizaki -- I was really surprised. When we were called in by staff, we all thought they were going to get angry with us for something. We were all asking each other: "What did we do wrong?" But then we got the shock of being told we were going to be doing three days at Budoukan.

Hiragana Oshi TV -- 2channel loves it: "Like early Nogizaka."

Here are some 2channel posts about the first episode of Hiragana Keyaki's new weekly show Hiragana Oshi:
The members didn't know who the MCs would be until they were revealed during the show: Audrey!

-- "Audrey was funny -- as winners of the 2008 M-1 top comic award should be." [They actually came second.]

-- "They got the right MCs. It seems as if they'll make the members grow."

Kakizaki Memi on Hiragana Oshi TV: Reaction from 2channel is positive and even clean

I liked the flow of posts in Memi's thread on 2channel after her appearance on Hiragana Oshi. Here are a few, from various posters [with my comments]:

-- '"She wasn't shy at all with Audrey, but spoke up clearly." [As I would have expected, having seen her recent Showroom broadcasts and other interactions.]

-- "We won't see any more confrontations with Moriya, I guess." [Good. That probably helped her to come out of herself a bit at the time, but I think it rather misrepresented her actual nature.]

-- "In GanaOshi, Memi's simplicity and innocence were wonderful." [Memi's naturalness and directness are what I have liked about her from the start, two years ago.]

Good evening!

The three days of
The Keyakizaka46 2nd Year Anniversary Live are over

To all of you who came,
And to all of you who always support us
Truly, thank you very much.

It was the most nerve-wracking live so far.
At every performance, my nervousness comes back.

I shiver,
And my heart quakes....

Live performances really make me feel alive 

"Keyakizaka46 is a dream.
I want to be someone who gets close to everyone's dreams.
I think that each member's dreams,
Including my own dreams, can be fulfilled through Keyakizaka."

These words of Yukka's
Really, really linger in my heart.

I want to be with everyone much longer.
And I want to be with all of you, too.

Please be good to us again in our third year.

Kakizaki Memi blog: Stage play, Hiragana Oshi, photos


Kakizaki Memi

Good evening,
It's Kakizaki Memi.

Every day, we're working hard rehearsing Ayumi 

Having ten people play one person is hard

I think it must be pretty difficult to imagine
What kind of story Ayumi is,
But when I first read Ayumi, I was deeply moved

I think that when you watch Ayumi, you will likely get various feelings about life

Please be sure to come and see it

Close, eh. lol
