Spring has come~ ♪528

Good evening

After the day when 46 Hours TV aired,
I, myself was even surprised, I slept like a log!

Right after that, I went to Mary Poppins Theater!

I want the Japanese children and parents to watch this.
And also those people who are a little tired with life, but wants to pull theirselves together

It was the best~~

I can’t take my eyes off from that magical stage!

And Komada Hajime-san as George Banks.

In LesMis, they are the Thénardier spouses!
I’m so glad I was able to meet them after a long time ♪

It really just happened by chance
But the next day after I went to the theatre
I’ve become Mary Poppins for a magazine shoot! lol

 

For more details, BLT is to be released on 4/24 ☆
I will be on the front cover.
Please check it out~

Sakura is in full bloom~!
It’s so early in this year
When I noticed that it has already blooming, I was really surprised.

Tsukushinbou has also started to grow~

46 Hours TV~ ♪527

Good evening

46 Hours TV!
Has finished successfully!!

Those who watched us
Thank you so much.

Mattsun and I was the MC on the first day
And then with Shiraishi-han also

blog1.jpg

Nice Hyokkori~!

This time, I challenged myself to sing Yodel
As my denshidai ☆

I wanted to try it someday
Because I’m somewhat interested in it.
I probably first heard of it through Heidi’s music, I think?

When I looked into some video search, there are lots of skilled people there!
Please try and watch it~~

When I actually tried it, it was really difficult
I had a hard time practicing it
But more than that, I really had fun!!

Those were the days when I was studying it while trying to deal with obstacles. But still, I had fun with Yodel.

I won’t be able to experience it if this project didn’t exist.
I’m grateful!

blog2.jpg

During our my practice period
Since the day was approaching near, I kept singing and singing in the waiting room without even caring about the surrounding.
I knew that I was being noisy
But the members joined me and gave me a lot of advice
It made me happy (o^^o)

The nice thing about Yodel is that
The people around you will definitely enjoy the performance!

I still have a long way to go compared to the professional ones,
But since I started doing it,
I hope I can continue enjoying it ♪

blog3.jpg

We also had Chi-sama’s denshidai!
Coriander
I couldn’t overcome my weak point of eating it after all(;´Д`A

Tulip’s trip to Hakone

Walking around shopping district while eating, Aquarium and Zoo,
Hot springs
We did a lot of things in one day
I had a lot of fun!!

I’m a newcomer
But I feel so close to them
I’m so happy~ ☆

Next time, I want Jo-san and Himura-san to join us in a trip again ♪

Are there any of you who were awake for 46 hours?
I guess none were able to do it??
But for those who were awake for a long time
Please rest well~

And most of all, to the staffs
Thank you for your hardwork!!
They did not have any time for sleep compared to us
But they still cooperated and helped us.
If they weren’t there, this reckless project won’t be able to well established.
Thank you so much!

[SUB] 180325 Nogizaka Under Construction (Ikuchan part)

Hello!

This is all I could do for this week Nogichuu review. I was about to sub Yoda’s story as well. But considering that my connection is still messed up (and took forever to upload the video below WHICH IS ONLY 10MB!!!) and old-rusty-laggy laptop that kept on freezing, I gave up and only subbed Ikuchan’s part. And actually I finished subbed around 11:30 PM (GMT+7). Just FYI. I know. So miserable.

I want to edit the uploaded video on DM but it reaaaaaaaaly takes forever to load. Never ending loading. So, let me apologize in advance if the video will be inaccessible tomorrow.

Well, I need sleep now. Sleep-deprived after struggling with slow-asthmatic internet connection for two days and work in the morning is waiting…

Please watch!

Guess. Is that a true story or she is just telling lies? Find the answer from someone who reviewed this episode fully or wait for someone who subs the whole episode.

180318 Nogizaka Under Construction Highlights

Let me apologize in advance,

sorry for the low quality screenshots.

 

This week’s theme is “Goal I want to Achieve in this 7th year of Nogizaka46”.

First presenter is, Ikuchan.

The goal she wants to achieve is,

to be a regular in a show.

Ikuchan: We have been in Nogizaka46 for 7 years. Some members are starting to become regular in TV and/or radio show one by one.

MC: What kind of show you want to appear regularly?
Ikuchan: I really like on location filming, so I’d like to appear in a show such as…Hiru nan desu

Ikuchan: I can eat deliciously, I’m cheerful just by being there (in the show), my smile is constant, and the screen will turn gorgeously whenever it shows me.

Sign: She said by herself.

Ikuchan: I want to show my originality like feeling the music and introduce something in musical way…

MC: Don’t you think that’s unnecessary?

She is then challenged to do a live broadcast of gourmet report of Orange Curry.

She musicalizes her commentary of the gourmet.

“O Orange, Orange! Why art thou Orange?”♪

Sign: People in the studio are confused.

“It taste is about 20% spicy and 90% sweet”♪

“A fantastic harmony of a curry”♪

MC: It’s 20% spicy and 90% sweet,

MC: You sum it up it’s 110%. Why?
Ikuchan: *didn’t notice that*

Ikuchan: To me, 110% is best. I’ve never thought that 100% is the limit. I always aim up one level higher that’s why it became 110%.

MC: So can you do the same thing when you introduce an old man like Himura-san?
Ikuchan: Of course. The gourmet report was an impromptu anyway.

“A Report of an Old Man”

Ikuchan: Here we have an old man♪

Ikuchan: What is your name?♪

Himura: Oh, u-um, it’s Himura.

Ikuchan: Himura, your hairstyle is so cute♪

Ikuchan: Please give us your smile♪

Sign: Tragedy of a Noon.

Ikuchan: It’s okay if it is with or without singing, nevertheless, I’m waiting for the offer anytime!

Next presenter is, Sayunyan.

Goal she wants to achieve,

to have her own photobook released.

She already came up with the title for her photobook.

“A Small Lily” (小さな百合の花 chiisana yuri no hana)
The phrase contains kanjis of her name 小百合 (Sayuri). And it’s actually her father who thought of her name.

She also printed an example of her photobook.

Those photos are taken by Marikka.

MC: Matsumura, photos in your photobook were taken in Hawaii, right? Was it you who asked the staff to take in Hawaii?
Macchun: Actually the staff told me that I have an image of Hawaii. That’s why.

Kazumin: Sayunyan where do you want to go (for photobook shoot)?

Sayunyan: …Switzerland.

MC: Wait, you want to show your ‘true’ self, but why Switzerland?

Sayunyan: I want to go to Switzerland…
Sign: Perhaps this is actually her goal.

Next presenter is Maichun.

Her goal is,

“To buy expensive shoes”

MC: Oh. Please go and buy by yourself then.

Maichun: I really don’t have any of expensive shoes.

Maichun: The most expensive one I have is cost JPY 12K

Maichun: The original price was 30K, but it was 60% off.

Sign: As expected from a water burglar.

MC: How much you will spend for the most expensive ones.
Maichun: I will work hard and…spend 100K for it.

And then she is offered some pairs of women shoes by the staff to buy. She was hesitated if she should buy the most expensive one (250K) or not. In the end…

She bought 2 pairs for 84K.

Last presenter is,

Kazumin.

The goal she wants to achieve is,

to fix her pronunciation.

Kazumin: I want to fix my pronunciation because in the 7th year, I want to challenge myself as an actress as well.

To measure how bad her pronunciation is, she is told to say 高所得者層 (koushotokushasou/high income group) to Siri.

She ended up saying “光速くそ” (Kousoku Kuso/Sh*t Speed of Light) instead.

Siri: Please do not say such a thing.

After a special lecture, she could finally said it right.

Aw, yiss IkuMai sit next to each other <333

MC: How about now, can you say it?
Kazumin: *fails to say it*
Sign: Huh?
Kazumin: Wait, wait, let me try again.

Kazumin: Ta chi tsu te to *while bowing*

Sign: She could say it while bowing.

MC: There is no such actress who talks like that in acting!
Sign: A hard to use actress.

MC: Only a huge robot role will fit that!

Sign: Science Fiction only?

Okay, maybe the Nogi’s ikemens are fit with Robot.

Next episode theme will be a “Let’s Find out Who’s Lying”

Naachan: The culprit is…

Kyaaaah!! Maiyan is so cute with that hairstyle <333

 

That’s all. Thanks for reading!
