We analyzed the rate of member's boyish and girly points at our own discretion. and decided the ranking of who is the most girly member. I enjoyed the interview with Nacky. In addition, As Nacky wrote on her blog, we received souvenirs. We both were charmed the sweets! In addition, the staff we always met in the JUNON shooting knows that I love Blood Orange Juice and prepared it for the interview. I was glad it…(;_;) Both were delicious. Thanks so much. 『JUNON』 Please check it out when it's released.

[The translation of Maimi's Post: Graduation…] Good afternoon. It's Maimi. Tanaka Reina-san graduated from Morning Musume yesterday. Of course , we went to see Last Morning Musume in which Tanka-san was, in Budokan. In the moment when Mornig Musume's silhouette appeared, "Cool" I was excited so much. I have forget Tanaka-san's last concert as Morning Musume and just enjoyed the live in the beginnning of the live. ヽ(´ー`)ノ As ℃-ute's Budokan on 10th September was also decided, 『We five also perform here~』 or 『The members on the stage were looked like this from this seat~』 I saw thinking a lot. The glow sticks surrounding the stage were so beautiful that I was fascinated. Tanka-san kept her smile brightly from the beginning to the end. She looked like she enjoyed her last Morning Musume. When the stage was going to covered with sadness, she looked like she acted cheerfully on purpose. Such her figure was cool and I saw her thinking that it's Tanaka-san own style. She has a so fresh smile~… Tanka-san shined brighter… And her graduation ceremony started. The letter Tanaka-san read aloud… 『For a while after passing the audition, I was said "A bad girl has joined" or "Trouble maker has come!". "Actually I'm not... " So I kept my mind closed. But, When I joined in Otome Gumi, I felt my fans got increased. "There were people cheering for such Reina... I'll work hard only for the persons!! 』 When I heard it, I was going to cry. Saying frankly, Tanaka-san looked like she had a lot of difficulties alone and she kept stress…。 I have thought "Tanka-san is strong". It may be because she have struggled with a lot of problems by herself. In the middle of the live, she said that Finally now, she can talk a lot of things with her same generation member Michishige Sayumi-san. A lot of members joined in the group one after another. I'm sure Tanka-san and Michishige-san have supported each other. I was moved the bond of the same generation. In addition, I was moved the figure of Tanka-san who delivered message to each member after receiving flowers. She have watched each member warmly~… I touched Member's bond. I thought.... We each have our own life. We can't see them. but everyone are struggling with a lot of worries and walking on our life. When I saw the 11 members standing on the stage after hearing Tanks-san's message, I was thinking such a thing. and they each looked more charming. It's not only Idols, everybody too. A lot of things happen to you everyday, you may be worries some times. "Everybody lives struggling with a lot" Yaji likes to hear a lot of persons life. It may be because I can feel that "Everybody lives struggling with a lot" from their story. Lastly, They sang "SyabonDama" It's the first single after Tanaka-san joined Morning Musume. It's 10 years ago... I saw the audition in the TV~ Suddenly I brought back the day's Tanaka-san. Aa… When I recall yesterday's live, my heart become warm... Every audiences who gathered in Budokan put their arms around each other's shoulders So much Blue glow sticks filled with the venue… It's really emotional... I felt she was covered with beautiful people. Tanaka-san acts as "LoVendoЯ" from now. I'd like to see their Live… Tanaka-san, Congratulations on your graduation! Lastly, I'll attach pics of Tanka-san and I… (1) With Tanka-san, Michishige-san... (2) And.. Today, 22nd May is my important person's... Berryz Kobo Tokunaga Chinami-chan's birthday! (3) China has been 21! Same age! Same age (^-^) We talked each other via phone last night~ As I had so much things I had wanted to talk to her, our talk didn't know the end…(´・ω・`) LOL We talked 『Let's go travel together』… let's enjoy 21 each otherー. Please keep supporting Yaji from now on too. LOL Happy Birthday! □■□■□■□■□■□ YouTube program Hello!

[The translation of Maimi's post (*'-')] Good evening. It's Maimi. We had C-ute live in Nagoya yesterdayー The venue has four floors. I was quite happy that there were audiences in the fourth floor too~ Before, we couldn't fill even first floor with audiences in the venue… I couldn't expected that I would see lights of shining glow sticks in the upper floor. I should thanks to a lot of people… We performed "Kanashiki Ame furi" for the first time which is the one of the song of double-A single, out 10th July It is a painful regret song. But the dance has dynamic and wild parts. The dance of the refrain is easy to remember. So I'd like you to remember the choreography and dance with us. Usually, after our live, we change our outfits and put away our baggage. and lastly we go around to say thank you for all of staff. and we leave the venue. When we went to the stage to greeting. The stage setting who there were a little while ago disappeared. lights which were shined were turn off. Team C-ute in the seats also disappeared! I felt lonely somehow… The venue was bare, I felt 『Ee? The view I have seen a little while ago was just my dream? 』… But, Mai looked the staff-san working hard for putting away stage set and a lot of machinery and materials, and said. 『Nobdy can live alone~』 I really agree her words. Thanks to a lot of supports, we can stand on stages like this… I should appreciate a lot everyday! Everyone who came our live, who cheered for us thought you couldn't attend, thanks so much! We have three weeks to next live. We will work hard to deliver better live to everyone who will come. Well, I had a practice of my stage play "Takuramakan" which take place at HIgashi Ikebukuro Auru Spot on 10th June, at Osaka Sunkei Hall Bresse on 11th June. We did a full rehearsal with outfits... Actually, the performance day is four days later \(◎o◎)/ I couldn't participate the practice many times, I have troubled a lot of people. Some have told me some changing points. Some have acted as a substitute I was supported so many, so many times… Yaji should work harder for their help (・ー・´) Above all, we will work hard to deliver unforgettable stages to you. Please 『Takuramakan』 will be loved by audiences who will come… To change the subject... Have you checked Yajima Maimi artworks "My Museum" which is released today! As it's an art works, I decorated photo books with wool yarn, beads and etc... so much. BTW, the page which It took me for the longest time to decorate a page is the page of Yaji sleeping on a candy's bed. It took me eight hours to do only the page! I decorate each page with all my heart. So if you haven't seen it, please check it out! Because yaji will be glad it. ♪ヽ(´▽`)/ (LOL) Well, Everybody, Good Job today too. Have a nice dream each other!

[The translation of Maimi's post: Happy Birthday(*^.^*)] Good evening. It's Maimi. I had practiced my stage "TakuramaKan" all day today. Only three days to the performance day. Finally we have leaved from the practice studio... The stage setting taken apart... 『the practice studio is such wide like this…』 yep. As a lot of things go way and the place became empty. I felt something lonely The studio was so humidity because of heated atmosphere from all casts…… Probably (LOL) As I have been in the studio all time, I couldn't notice it. but some persons said. 『When I back from outside, here is filled with warm humidity』 Probably, Yaji's sweat do supported the humidity strongly.. I have sweated like this in the practice. But It's wonderful to play stage in such hot practice studio which is filled with energy like that.(・∀・´) I'll stand on the stage doing everything with all my heart to deliver such our energy to audiences. 31st May~10th June : Higashi Ikebukuro Auru Spot. 11st June: Osaka Sunkei Hall Bresse, You still can get the weekday's ticket. Please come to my stage if you have time. This is a pic in the practice studio today. (Pic1) Ikari Asami-san who played my role instead of me while I absented the practice. She often sent me modifications via text messages. She has her own role but she remembered my moving and my line. Really thanks so much. (Pic2) and Yokoyama Kazutoshi-san whose birthday is tomorrow! We celebrated his birth after the practice today. 『Takuramakan 』 is a stage with live performance of music. When we sang a birthday song, Pianist Tateishi Kazumi-san played the song. I met Yokoyama-san at the time of playing my former stage, Theater Company Hata-gumi's "Ran". I often played with him in a lot of stage play after that. He is really strong and gentle. It was the first "Ran".. As I'm shy of strangers, I was nervous in a practice studio filled with strangers. Yokoyama-san often talked to such me. He give us a sense of security. You can see Yokoyama-san's sharp and dynamic action in the "Takuramakan" too. if you blink, you will miss his action~(  ̄▽ ̄) Please gaze his action realizing that you may be dry eyes. (LOL) Speaking of birthday. It was Morning Musume。 Sayashi Riho-chan's birthday! Riho-chanー Happy birthday! When I went to Morning Musume。Budokan Live, I was charmed her sharp dance. 『Cool~~(*´д`*)』 When I feel so, it's Riho-Riho's dance. Not only dance, Her singing voice has become stronger and she got a lot of technique. Well... She is a really hard worker... I always watch her feeling that her spirits for her job is reliable. (・ー・| WALL| I was stimulated from her so, so much. Yaji should work harder! Riho-chan wishing your happy fifteen. Happy birthday! Well, I heard the rainy season seems to start from tomorrow… In the practice studio.. 『Ee (  ̄▽ ̄) Maimi-chan!(。-∀-)』 『I have been worried about this, this year too??…(  ̄▽ ̄)』 I'm scared of everyone's eyes ((((゜д゜;))))LOL Yep. Actually... I have played on theater company Hata-gumi's stage twice. A lot of days were rainy in the stages, first and second "Ran" …m(__)m It's useless but I hanged up TeruTeru Bouzu (a doll to which Japanese children pray for fine weather) in our dress room. Okay!

To tell the truth, I caught a cold around one week ago. The condition of my voice is not good… I couldn't control my voice well and felt frustration. Owing to my voice, I've made trouble for a lot of people. It frustrated me too. "important thing is my heart" I thought that, I could feel a little easy. ℃-ute members sent text messages for me before the performance and were worried about the condition of my throat and encouraged me. Nacky said to me. 『A heroine Nacky went to see a stage was also so husky. but I was moved! Voice is not big points for the result of stages. Most important thing is actor's heart. I felt so. So please leader, do your best so that audiences will think so too.!" (Pic1) I had been depressed. however, Okay(・ー・´) I'll fight with my heartー I could feel refreshed! They are my wonderful friends…, aren't they? I really appreciate members! I can't write all here but I was moved all of member's messages and received a lot of powers from them(/_;) Ah, BTW This is a pic Mai attached with her text message.

[The translation of Maimi's post: We are burning ( ノ`△´) ノ] Good morning. It's Maimi. It's Sooo fine day! We had Polaroid events to commemorate the release of our new song "Crazy Kanzen Na Otoan" (Pic 1・2・3) Everyone who attended the events are the persons who bought the box set of all version's "Crazy Kanzen na Otona" Thanks so much. I was happy that I could take pics with you all. I really thank to you all who have always cheered for us even though they couldn't participate, too. Some persons said to us yesterday, Actually seven years ago today, C-ute released our first indies CD "Massara Blue Jeans"(T^T) Seven Years... Deeply moving. I had a difficult time with the recording of the song. I couldn't find out what to do in the shooting of music video and I was bewildered. I still remember the days~… Since the days we have sung the song so many times, as some opening acts, at some shopping mall in all over Japan so that as many people as possible would know us. I have a lot of memories about the song. I'd like to remember our original intentions forever (・∀・´) As Airi wrote on her blog the other day, Manager-san and C-ute gathered and told a lot each other. After reading Berryz Captain Shimizu Saki's expression of her determination on her blog, I talked with her via text messages. (** Captain celebrate C-ute live in Budokan but she was regret. Why Berryz can't do it? Then, She expressed her determination "Berryz will stand on Bodokan this year or next year" ) As Chisato, Berryz Kobo Natsuyaki Miyabi-chan also wrote on their blog. Now, Berryz and ℃-ute have produced a synergistic effect, and we have been burning so much(・∀・´) Having dream is wonderful Thanks to it, we can be burning ourselves and unite each other more tight/ In addition, we could notice gratitude for all, again. Berryz Kobo has set their one dream Budoakn.... ℃-ute also had had the dream for a long time. As I joined Hello!Project at a same time, I wish they will grant their dream. Actually, When I read Berryz Kobo's determination, I was flustered. (** According to Nacky on her radio... Berryz is already cool. however, they dared to express their determination. They were seriously afraid C-ute will fall behind them. ) But we could think it's good for us to feel worried that we will fall behind them. "We never lost C-ute own style, and more strongly have a spirits "Never fall behind any group" and will improve our abilities." We talked that each other. ℃-ute give ourselves for my dream. I was so happy that Berryz Kobo members said to us 『Congratulation on decision of C-ute Budokan Live』 『I'd like to see ℃-ute's Budokan Live』 That's why C-ute compete with them but we cheer for their dream. Let's grant our dream of Budokan! When it become real, definitely C-ute will go to see there. Oops… He He He…f(^∇^;) I've become hot hot Yaji-san today too…(^~^;) There is one more reason which makes me such hot. It's because C-ute has live in Sendai after so long today. I was so happy when I heard "we can go Sendai for our tour". We haven't been able to go Sendai for our tour since we went three years ago. I was really looking forward to see team C-ute in Seindai City(つд`) Excuse us, we haven't come by today. ℃-ute still has a lot of place we haven't been. Going for our live or events in 47 prefectures is also C-ute's dream. Everybody, please wait for us. Definitely we will also make the dream come true~(`・ロ・´) BTW, As we haven't come to Sendai City for a long time, a lot of persons may meet C-ute after so long. I'll deliver good lives so that they will feel "I wanna cheer for C-ute from now on too". I also say thank to you all who will come to Sendai from afar. Let's enjoy wonderful time together. Well, I hope you all have a happy day in the last day of Golden Week. □■□■□■□■□■□ The closing day of the Special DVD including Making of Yajima Maimi art works 『My Museum』(←it is released on 27/5) which is made individually to order on e-LineUP! is today at 23:59. If you haven't ordered one, please get one! ( http://www.e-lineup.com/shopdetail/003000000189/ ) In addition, My comments appear in an article that Base ball player Nagashima Shigeo-san and Matsui Hideki-san received National Honor Award on a sports paper "Spots Nippon" All my family were fan of a baseball team Yomiuri Giants. We have been to see their game in Tokyo Dome so many many times since my childhood. The awards ceremony took a place in the Tokyo Dome. I couldn't see it in real time. I saw it in a TV show this morning. Nagashima-san stood on the batter box and Matsui-san threw a ball. I was impressed their figure. My borthers and I have received a lot of emotions and dreams from baseball games. I say such my gratitude for Nagashima-san and Matsui-san. National Honor Award, really congratulations. http://gree.jp/c_ute/blog/entry/666872312

When we live in Sendai next time, We will sell out the ticketsー(・∀・´) To do so, we should always deliver good stage so that audiences will think 『I wanna come again』 『I wonder to ask my friends or family for this live』 (>_<) ℃-ute will work harderー Ah, yes yes. There is a corner that we decide a singer and a song by lot in this live. Yajima has gotten the chance in every places. Who will win? We get nervous each time. Fans of other C-ute members also shout for my song. Oi!! Oi!!ヾ(・▽・*) I was so happy. Thank so much. I ate ox tongue box lunch in the returning Shinkansen express. It's yummy~(´ー`⊂) Now Yaji's body is Jyuwa Jyuwa. XD ↑When I said the same thing on my blog before, a lot of comments "I can't understand the expression" arrived at me. (^。^;) Umm…What should I express it… The feeling is similar with our legs after waling around Disney Land all day. Juwa is the feeling's full body version. :D The fatigue teaches me I've done Live Everyone who came, are you okay? Please take a good rest. Everyone who cheered for us though you couldn't come, thanks so much too. Everybody, could you enjoy the last day of the spring long holidays? Almost person started their jobs, school from today. Let's work hard enjoying from tomorrow too~ p.s. Today is the birthday of Morning Musume Sato Masaki-chan. Fourteen~ Youngー It's my age we released 『Massara Blue Jeans』ー In my image, Maa-chan is really as artless as a child, such a baby, and is always tagging along after somebody. Such her figure is so cute that she is like our young sister. Please soothe all with Maa-chan own way in 14 too. Happy Birthday. □■□■□■□■□■□ The DVD and Blu-ray of our precious tour 『℃-ute concert tour 2012-2013 winter ~Shisei naru Pentagram~』is released on 15th May.

[The translation of Maimi's post: Live in Yokosuka ヾ(^ ▽^)ノ] Good evening. It's Maimi. We had C-ute lives in Yokosuka yesterday. A lot of people came to our lives. The tickets were sold out! There were standees too. Awwー(>_<。) I'm too happy…°・(ノД`)・°・ Looking up the venue, the venue was filled with team C-ute, even fifth floor too…(〃▽〃) It's really happy time. Yes yes. As the title of this tour is 『C-ute Concert tour 2013 Spring - Trasure Box - 』, there is a corner which we introduce each member's treasure. Yesterday was Yaji's turn. I introduced a communication notebook on which the conversations between mother and a nursery school teacher were written when I was 1 or two year. I introduced a episode that you could easily understand I have been a tomboy. Except for it, a lot of funny episodes were written on the notebook. As I introduced it as my treasure this time, I read all before the tour. It's easy to lose track of time when I read such books. you too? …(*/□\*) As I wrote on this blog yesterday, I was an 『Ultra-Super-Mama's girl』. I'll introduce such an episode of Mama's girl. I turned my cheek saying 『Kiss me!』 Then, My mother seemed to 『peck』 me on my cheek. Then, I ran away saying 『Bohhiiiー』 it's written on the book… ……What is Bohhiiー??…… and, when my brother have to go out with a box lunch, Did I fee jealous of him? I brought my lunch box to my mother and 『This one』 『Mai's box lunch day is the day after tomorrow! 』 Then, 『No way!』 I said so and seemed to get sulky …┓( ̄∇ ̄;)┏ I haven't completely remembered them…( ̄~ ̄;) Children's acts are so funny as I expected. XD I could understand well from the book that I was really selfish, and I was such a baby, such a wild girl. BTW, I have already prepared much treasure, such as special footage I couldn't stop laughing, my precious items. I don't know where I will introduce them because it's decided by lot. If you come to our live after this, please look forward to the corner too! Everyone who came, everyone who cheered for us, thanks so much. I had a really good time yesterday Well, I'll attach some pics of yesterday! (Pic 1) with Tasaki Asahi-chan who appeared as an opening act. She appeared with our tour goods Yaji-towel on her neck in the night stage (*´д`*) Thank you so muchー (Pic2) I took a pic with Hello! Project trainee boost our tour with us, too. From left, Yoshihashi Kurumi-chan. Tanabe Nanami-chan, I Murota Mizuki-chan, Kaga Kaede-chan. (PIc3) Sweets we received as souvenirs. Sweets after stages is best! I thought so many times during eating them. 『Too happy~』 When I came home, I ate a slice of water melon! It made me feel summer! BTW, My way to eat watermelon is with salt(  ̄▽ ̄) It's the first time to eat one this year. It's juicy and It's yummy~ Well, I had an orange after breakfast this morning. Yaji, really loves fruits. Fruits Bravo \(^-^)/ Well, let's work hard from now on tooー(^o^) See you later~ p.s. There are only three days to the closing day of the pre-order of 10th September C-ute's day at Nippon Budokan for Fan Club members. If you haven't apply it, please check it out. I wish we will be able to see overcrowded Budokan with you there. According to the comments on my blog, it seems that there are a lot of people will be unable to come though they have cheered for us so much because of distance, study, some kinds reasons. If we grant the dream of overcrowded Budokan, we will work hard to go to meet the people in their town. I really hoped to go all over Japan, 47 prefecture…(´・ω・`) Please cheer for ℃-ute from now on too. http://gree.jp/c_ute/blog/entry/667192539

[The translation of Maimi's post: (・∀・) Something I'd been searching for.] Good Morning. It's Maimi. Hu hu hu… Rain gone away. It's so pleasant weather! BTW, I ate cherries last night for the first time this year. it's Yaji's favorite!ヽ(´ー`)ノ I love Cherries best in all of fruit. When I bit one, its Juice overflowed into my mouth at the moment, They were really fresh ~(o^_^o) BTW, Before leaving from my house, I ate them this morning too (´ー`⊂) Summer is hot, makes me get a tan. In addition, mosquito bite me. So it's the hard season for Yaji. But I look forward to summer because of cherries. Well, What is others I have looking forward in summer…? (・∀・) I like the coolness and atmosphere of summer night. Ah! there are fireworks festivals, and summer festivals! I went to Nagaoka Festival Big Fireworks Festival with my mother last year~(*'-') It had tremendous powers! They were so big that I couldn't see whole fireworks!! It's the first time to see fireworks such up-close, The ashes of fireworks was seen gonna fly to me~ To change the subject completely, Recently I have often found something I'd been searching for. There is a hair band like a Magic Tape. I was going to use it the other day. However, I couldn't find it. It's so convenience that I often used it… I couldn't find it anywhere. 『I might leave it somewhere…』 I gave up.. But one day (It's around two days ago) ... I sweat so much in the practice of sword action of my stage "Takuramakan". I was going to wipe the sweat and slung a towel around my neck. Then... 『Um (・o・)?』 There was a hard part in the towel. What is this…? (・ー・?) I checked the part. What! the Magic Tape hair band stuck to the towel ( ̄□ ̄;)!! 『 I've found it!ー Here it is…(;´д`)』 it's a red hair band and the towel is also red. So it's difficult to notice it…. I used the towel in the last day when I used the hair band. Probably, it's rolled in a washing machine, and was clipped with clothespins, and was dried and slept for a long days in a towel box.…( ̄~ ̄;) It stuck to the towel strongly. I ripped the hair band, only the part became tattered. oh my God!(;゜ロ゜) (*** <- Miami's English) Anyway, I'm really glad to find it out. Except for it, Somethings I've been disappointed to lose appeared casually That's why Yaji has been happy these days. Well then, I'll work hard happily today too! See you until tomorrow's updating. ーToday's pics ー (1) I drank this one... What was the name? …(°∇°;) I've forgotten it but It's declicious ~ (2) A pic I took with Nacky the other day's live. (3) A cute flower I found at a road side in one day spring had come. □■□■□■□■□■□ This week YoutTube program 『Hello! Station #15』. Hagi-chan's hair arrangement is open to the public on it. http://youtu.be/MQc5Qq4ytLY What will Yaji do if Yaji do it? Yaji'd like to show my hair style in the corner someday... http://gree.jp/c_ute/blog/entry/667347126
