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

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!

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.

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 ♪

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

blog5.jpg

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!

Great Comet~♪ 525

 

Good evening

 

I’ve been using Theater Live 4u recently!

 

Bullets Over Broadway

Mata Hari

Poe no Ichizoku

And many more

 

And also the movie Greatest Showman

 

I felt a lot of excitement

I laughed, I cried, and I even felt empathy

Just by watching, you can already consume calories.

 

Input Output

Both are important!

 

There was an announcement today.

 

On January 2019

I will take the role of Natasha in“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812″ musical!

 

Inoue Yoshio-san will play the role of Pierre.

I once mentioned at radio that someday I hope we will be able to stand on the same stage

But to think that this will happen in just a short time…

I am really happy!

 

When I was watching Tony Award on TV last year

The audience’s seats are on the stage and it had an impact to me

It was very  memorable.

I wonder how it will be in Japan.

 

Konishi Ryousei-san, Hiromu Kiriya-san has also been announced as casts today

And those who haven’t been announced yet

I’m looking forward to the production of Japan’s premiere of Great Comet

 

Everyone, please look forward to it ♪

 

 

These pictures aren’t really related but

This was from our recent Hong Kong live’s dressing room.

 

2/25 18:30~

I will appear in Bananaman-san no Sekkaku Gourmet!

We three got really lively♪

I was told to only taste but I ate like I’m used to everyday. lol

It had fun so much~~ Such a great program~~

 

Shitara-san has finally recovered from influenza and it was his first recording.

Since influenza is starting to spread even more, please take care of yourselves everyone >_<

 

I will appear two weeks later so stay tuned
