on 8/21, Fujimoto Miki will appear on the Fuji TV show "Viking" to talk about being really annoyed by fans who stalked her during her idol days. There was one time a man from a rental video store who she thought was following her, She was going home and getting on the train. She was afraid of getting off to change trains.

Muh gurls ; ;

It's so nice to hear Kamei's voice again, even if it's in the background. I swear I hear her say "Kamei da~" in the last one though.

Announcement :

Shimizu Saki talking about coming back to the stage starting with her one day live event "Dance live ~I wish I could...~". Although the title has been announced, the details of her event will be announced later.

She had discussed her feelings with the staff. After Berryz Kobo two and half years ago, Shimizu went on to be a Hello! Project advisor, studied on her pc, and worked as staff. She had many experiences that made her grow. After going to abroad to study this past Spring, she came back searching for things that would challenge her. She watched musicals and theater. She went to Karaoke with friends various times. She went to the dance studio for the past 2 years. She loved singing and dancing. But she was conflicted. She has consulted with the office and had the courage to say that she has decided to come back on stage again. She is 25 years going on 26. She won't let her age bother her. She is already going to be in that new stage play with Yajima Maimi in October, and her live in November. All the Berryz and C-ute members have walked their own path, she won't lose to them.

Shimizu Saki is now a member of M-line club

That's great for her. She was probably yearning for a challenge. I am sure they will always welcome her to comeback or keep working as a staff.

A new step

Here’s a new announcement!!


I’ll be having a 1-day-only stage performance in October!!!







Hello! Project 20th anniversary eve 〜One by One〜
Shimizu Saki DanceLive 〜I wish I could・・・〜



29 Oct (Sun)@COTTON CLUB
①Start/4:00 p.m.
②Start/7:00 p.m.



It might have come out of the blue、 but this announcement today marks the start of a new step for me。

However、 while the title has been set、 we haven’t actually decided the specifics of what I’ll be doing in it。
If would be nice if、 after discussions with the staff members、 I’ll be able to get my feelings through to those who come to watch the show。


The title is

DanceLive

 〜I wish I could・・・〜


Hearing those words makes me excited。

Within these roughly 2 and a half years since Berryz Kobo entered our hiatus、 besides guiding the juniors in my role as Hello! Project Advisor、 I’ve learned things like how to use computers、 and how to work as a member of staff。
I grew even more to who I am now thanks to plenty of experience。
Studying abroad during spring this year may have changed my way of thinking a little。
I would like to try out new things。
Doing so really requires a lot of courage、 but I’m sure that these new things will be no loss to me、 instead they’ll be positives that’ll make me stronger!


In the midst of that、 I’ve always liked going to watch musicals and stage-plays from way back, and I would even go to watch them in my private time、 and after Berryz’ hiatus、 I felt an itch when I recalled how I felt whenever I stood on-stage、、、

I often go to karaoke with friends、 and I’ve actually been going to a dance studio in these 2 years。


I really do love singing、 dancing、 and acting。

Honestly、 it’s complicated。
I worried about it a lot。

I discussed it with people from the office、 and with my strong determination、 it was decided that I would stand on the stage once again!!!

I’m grateful to those at the office for giving me this chance。


And more than anything、
There are people who were waiting。 There are people who want to see me on-stage。
Your presence and thoughts lent support to my feelings!!
Thank you so very much。


25 years old。 My 26th year looming。
Honestly、 I wouldn’t say that I’m not worried about making a new start at such an age、 but I’d like to treasure each and every thing that I can do, and do them with all I’ve got!!

Currently there’s this show in October、 and the stage-play in November。
I’ll do other jobs besides that、 and I hope to inform all of you when I do。


I know things won’t all go smoothly!!
But this is the path that I decided on!!
I’ll surmount the challenges!!

Looking around me、 Momo、 Tokunaga-chan、 Maa-chan、 Miya、 Kumai-chan、 Risako、、、The Berryz members and ℃-ute as well、 they’re all going down their own individual paths!!

I won’t lose either!!



It’s really nerve-wracking when I think about the fact that I’ll be on-stage again!!

I’m happy and nervous to meet all of you after so long!!!



Shimizu Saki will do her best!!!



Everyone、 I hope that you’ll lend me your support。
I ask for your kindness!!!!!!!

In-studio commentary on live

Koharu Kusumi – BOAT RACE LIVE Premium G1 Ladies Championship (6 Aug 2017)


Watching this video along with previous videos of Koharu when she was with H!P, it is easy to see why she didn't fit in or other members were annoyed by her. She's not good at hiding how she feels when she's talking and she is not good enough at pretending to be interested in topics that are not close to her. This is less of an issue when she is performing live, although it still shows sometimes. It's kinda a shame, things went like this. I felt like she had a cute idol voice and her solo stuff was pretty good.

The first two people that there were enough obaka-characters/talents so person 1 said she needed to be obaka+ (as in, add something to her character), the second more or less told her to become an H!P adviser.

The next person said she (he?) saw her no-makeup picture on instagram and she wasn't ugly but she wasn't cute either and doesn't see what's special about her.

Now that's C-ute is over, can you fall in love/have a relationship? If so... please don't turn out like Yaguchi.

I saw on a TV show that you have five siblings and that you buy all their clothes... I find that very adult (the word used is "erai" which transliterates closer to wise)

She appears bright and happy but I think she's crying on the inside. If you anxious about your life, I hope you'll go on a soul searching trip.
---
Her responses:
I really am Happy!

I'm so stupid that I'm not really thinking about the future (as in, her longevity in entertainment). I appear on TV shows not knowing if its going to go good or bad. If I stop booking work, I'll open a pub in my hometown, called Okai-chan.

I've been paying for everything. During school I used my own money to pay for lunch. I don't know what my dad does. One time he said he was going to work but my siblings and I saw him get in a car with a strange women and we told our mom. I really hope he works more.

When I first graduated I thought I would immediately find a boyfriend but there aren't that many good ones, huh? I like them charai (kind of bro-y is probably the closest translation)... The hosts say how about Alexander (the actor model next to her) but she said he's a little too charai for her. Then they say how about the comedian sitting in front of her and she says she doesn't like guys who get in accidents and then they mention the quiet lady in the corner has an ikemen son but the lady's reaction was "No!"
