Synchronicity~♪ 529

Good evening

First of all,
20th single coupling song
A unit song entitled “Kumo ni Nareba ii” together with Misa and Reika
It was chosen as a theme song for Mezamashi Doyoubi!!

We just heard about it the day we were commenting about our song
We three were all surprised.
I’m so happy >_<♡

A gentle and encouraging song that drifts in the blue sky
I feel like I want to loosen up and be at ease even for just a little time!

From now on, I'll be looking forward to Saturday Mornings ♪

The other day, we sang the national anthem for the opening of the game of Giants!

When I was in Junior High School
My classmates and I would always go to Dome to watch a sports game every after school.
And now that I remember it, it was really touching…

We were nervous carrying that big important responsibility
But we were still able to enjoy taking on that role!

Thank you so much for that wonderful experience!

Pride Pose, after a long time ☆

And today,
“Synchronicity” MV has been released.

The place was only focused at a single situation where we had all the attempts
Without lip sync,
Only through the dance and facial expressions,
Everyone tried to express the emotions and the story that the song is carrying.

How did everyone think about it~?

In our future music shows,
I normally show a good facial expression when I sing
But with this song, I want to value the emotions coming from the meaning of the lyrics that is being expressed!

Once again, the MV is slightly different because of the dance and formation
So please look forward to the live performance

Foot bath with my girlfriend now
You can use this picture~ lol

1st entry, Kubo Shiori

Sign: She can stack 12 pencils on her nose

(We’ve seen this one in Bingo 8, haven’t we?)

Himura and Minamin are helping her by handing the pencils.

Shitara: Oh, it’s a big advantage for having them to help her

Kuboshi: *stacked 7 pencils*

Shitara: Right, Kubo? It’s nice having two of them helping you! Good for you!
Kuboshi couldn’t help but laugh because Shitara were talking at her.

Himura: WHAT? YOU ACTUALLY CAN’T DO THAT?!

Kubo: *to Himura* Please don’t make me laugh…

Himura: I’M JUST STANDING HERE!

Shitara: Huh? What is it, Ozono?

Momochan: *in whisper tone* Please be quite for her…

Shitara: I should be quite because she’s doing the challenge?

Shitara: *in shouting tone on purpose* You got it right!

Kuboshi failed again lol

And then Kazumin is taking the same challenge.

Member (if my memory serves me well, it was Ikuchan): Her chin is wrinkled…

Members are laughing

Kazumin: WAIT! I CAN’T BE CUTE DOING THIS!

I’m pretty sure this one is Ashu who broke into a laughter wwwww

Himura: They’re right! Your chin is wrinkled!

Sign: No wrinkles in Kubo’s

Himura: What’s with that wrinkly chin?

Members are laughing seeing Kazumin’s weird face while doing the challenge

2nd entry, Sakaguchi Tamami

Tamachan’s mom: Idols are often showing their weird faces on TV, but the one Tamami has is way funnier

Tamachan: I only do the faces in front of my mom…

Tamachan: And then she said, “You’d better do it (on the TV) for once”

 

And here’s the face

It is sure weird! lol

Shitara: We know Himura-san is popular with his weird faces. Let’s have him do some and I want you all to pay attention to the 3rd one.

Shitara: Ready?

Shitara: One

Shitara: Two

Shitara: Three.

Sign: His normal face is the strongest.

Members are broke into laughter in instance

Sign: The champion of weird faces has arrived

Ayati acquired a certificate of Esthetician. So they are having her to show how she does to Himura

Shitara: *hits Himura’s forehead* Close your eyes!

Himura: *is shocked* OI! WHAT KIND OF ESTHETICIAN IS HERE?!

Ayati continues the demo but then,

Shitara choked Himura’s neck

Himura: SERIOUSLY WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ESTE?!

Himura: Were you choking my neck? No, right?

Himura: That was scary… *lies down again*

Shitara: It’s over, right?
Ayati: *nods*

Himura: *rages* WHY IS IT OVER?!

The last topic is “My only treasure”

Yoda’s letter when she was a middle high for herself in 10 years later.

“I’m sure you’re not married yet and don’t even have a boyfriend.
But that’s not a terrible thing.
I’m sure you’ll get one someday so please do your best!
(If you still can’t, cheer yourself up by keeping a pet)
Also, please don’t waste too much money.
Do your best so you can bring your families for Hawaii vacation!!”

Yoda: This is embarrassing…
