Reunion~♪ 526

Good evening

Two days ago, I went to Kinami Saya-chan’s house together with my friends Kon-chan and Rin-chan, who were also starring in LesMis~

We were greeted by these well-decorated lovely meals as soon as we arrived there ☆

Thank you for the wonderful time!

I’m so happy to be able to have this reunion even the show had already over.

It’s either getting warm or cold here recently.
I’m confused…

Please take good care of yourself, everyone~~

[SUB] 180311 Nogizaka Under Construction (Ikuchan and Maiyan Part)

It’s been a while since the last time I subbed a video. At first I was about to do another highlight but the struggle to cut and render the video was real. I’ve spent hours since the show was ended to render and my laptop kept failing to do that. So I decided to sub Ikuchan and Maiyan part only.

And actually I want to write more about this 20th single senbatsu announcement. Too bad, I’m too tired. Mentally.

Anyway, please watch!

Note: You can’t watch it on dailymotion because I’m setting it as private video. Please watch the video in this page.

 

It would be a wonderful gift to me if it was IkuMai double center.

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

[NEWS] Ikuta Erika will Appear in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet 1812” Musical

It has been announced in Nogizaka46 official site that she will take part in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet 1812” musical. She also stated in her blog that she will play role as Natasha.

This musical is a sung-through musical adaptation of a 70-page segment from Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace written by composer/lyricist Dave Malloy and directed by Rachel Chavkin. The musical received positive reviews, particularly for Phillipa Soo, Denée Benton, and Josh Groban’s leading performances, as well as for the production’s score, direction, and scenic design. The show was nominated for 12 awards—the highest number of nominations in the 2016–2017 season—for the 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical for Benton, Best Actor in a Musical for Groban, Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Lucas Steele, and Best Direction of a Musical for Chavkin. It won two awards: Best Scenic Design for Mimi Lien and Best Lighting Design in a Musical for Bradley King (lighting designer). (Wikipedia)

The musical will be a premiere in Japan and will start to show on January, 2019.

“Mozart” is about to get produced and will be shown soon, and now this. It is another amazing opportunity for her to have a leading role in such a well-known musical.

January to March 2017 ― Romeo & Juliette
May to October 2017 ― Les Miserables
May to August 2018 ― Mozart! (Upcoming)
January to unknown 2019 ― Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet 1812 (Upcoming)

P.S
She mentioned that she watched “The Greatest Showman” lately. I hope she will take part if the Japanese musical for The Greatest Showman is decided.

[Original Post from Previous Blog]

Good mornight!

Admin Ikuchan here.

First of all, I would like to apologize that because of me (again) the next scheduled release of subbed Nogidoko eps. 72 is delayed (again) m(_ _)m

In the meantime, here I present you a video of Nogizaka’s new Meiji CM.

Maiyan, Ikuchan, Sayurin, and Miona are in this video. You know why I only subbed this one. YES! OTP is together in this video!
Please don’t ask me to sub the other one where Naachan, Manatsu, Reika, and Kazumin are in. Unless you’ll pay me then I will 😛 lol kidding. I’m sure someone out there will do soon.

Actually I’m posting this without asking admin Sayuringo first. But I’m sure he would allow me anyway ww.

So, here it is.
