On the Hiragana Keyaki SHOWROOM broadcast a couple of days ago, they announced that the group would put out its own single, would have a Debut Countdown Live concert, would have their own website and fanclub, etc. Kakizaki Memi seemed happy about all those things.
But the final surprise announcement -- unknown to the members -- was the name-change from Hiragana Keyakizaka46 to Hinatazaka46. When that announcement was made, the other members burst into cries of delight, but Memi looked desolate, almost in tears. Why?
Memi has answered that question in a couple of long Keyaki Message posts. She says that she was shocked by the announcement, and felt that all the work they had put into Hiragana might now count for nothing. She is very emotionally attached to Hiragana Keyakizaka46 -- even loves it -- and really didn't understand why a name-change was necessary.
But she says she likes the new name, which she agrees is perfect for the group's image, and will work hard to understand why the name-change had to happen.

Nanami-chan, 333Nagahama Neru
Today was a special event,
An autograph event.
I met Yone!!
Actually, we recently
But the fact is
Yone is so adorable in a Keyaki uniform.
It was like: "Uwaah! It's Yone!!"

Yesterday, it snowed in Tokyo.
When I woke up, I was surprised to see how much had piled up.
It seems the cold weather will continue....
A few days ago, I went to Kamakura
With the Princess (Naako-san).
That evening was suddenly my first time in Kamakura.
I took an instant-print camera with me
And was shooting the Princess constantly.
Thank you for always letting me take photos of you....

The Nagasaki Lantern Festival has begun!
It's already been a year since I was in the Emperor's Parade.
It seems my family went, too.
They sent me a photo. I'm jealous.
This year, a new event called "Sky Lantern"
Has begun, it appears.
I really, really, really want to go.
Lanterns in the sky!
It's true! I've always wanted to see them!
Be sure to~
Keyaki Message is an app
That lets me, how should I say it,
Easily send messages to you all.
I have gone ahead and started
A feature called "Today's theme song."
It's been more than a year now....
