Buono! has been sighted!

New Pictures~

MomoKO
MiyaBI
AiRI

Risu tells me loads of fans are excited (including me) since this must mean something right? they haven't totally disappeared!
they're all doing the Buono! pose and everything~
soo hooopefully some news soon
lets pray minna!
but aside from that don't they all look pretty! Love their clothes and hair, especially Airi's I love that hairstyle on her, she hasn't had it for a while.
Miya's real hair~ love the curls and colour
and Momo's sorta trademark hair! (I sometimes have that hairstyle and my friend calls me Momo xD)]
go go Buono!

5ninn new C-ute! It is good since each member gets a lil more attention, or the covers won't look so crowded xD
3nin Buono! I think this will be my preferred number, cause then each member really gets even lines and more attention, and easier to fit everyone in xD
7nin Berryz! or old C-ute *sniffs* but I do like seven cause it's more fun xD with more people, at first I though big numbers were really stupid and annoying, but I've pretty much got used to it now, loads of asian groups have big numbers..
8+nin Momusuuu, well isn't it a struggle to fit them all in? xD but yeah for the group it's probably more fun with biiig numbers, but really most of them are just dancers...
4nin S/mileagee/Guardians4 xD more cover space definitely but there's still favourites, normally 2 get a lil more
6nin C-ute and maybe Momusu? I actually think an old number of members is more interesting..for dance wise anyways xD

sorry it was a random question..
but anyways thanks for voting everyone!!
this time it's still random, what H!P Hair Colour do you Prefer?
since H!P members go through colourful hair, just wondered if people have a preference
please vote~

Elegant Girl Preview

FINALLY!
I was soo happy when I saw this news, cause 1) it's H!P kids 2)a preview~
For once they didn't give away the song at all! so I was excited that we'd get an idea now
Ja jaan
Risako looks sooo pretty! kireii~ and it sounds good too, it suits her voice which is good, but not sure on high notes...seriously why do they give her so much, she's an alto. though some parts it doesn't sound like Risako..xD like either she really improved or it got edited? well I hope it's the first.
but I reallllly excited for the release cause Risako sounds really good
the PV itself isn't thaat great, but it's good quality and Risako is stunning
9/10!

Blatant Unfairness

I though this picture sums up quite nicely the ranks of the groups
25nin H!P

So order of importance (i.e. Tsunku's favourite's)
1) Morning Musume
2) S/mileage
3) Mano Erina
.....
4) Berryz Kobo
5) C-ute

How can I tell? simple look at their outfits
Look how much more design and variety (and money) Momusu's outfits has compared the C-ute who's at the bottom of the list

Seriously C-ute's is white, just white! There's not even a variation like Berryz
But of course C-ute still look stunning whatever they wear.
But it's pretty unfair

Berryz is a step up, there's different designs, but you can't see it that clearly
They look stunning also~

And then Mano, with her stripes and two colours

S/mileage gets checks even

and Momusu well I already talked about them and their expensive clothes xD

But I mean it's not just clothes that is unfair, the clothes are just a symbol of unfairness
I mean Singles and attention wise the order's pretty much the same
though now I think it's S/mileage first theen Morning Musume...
S/mileage get's more promo than Berryz and C-ute put together
so what if they're new? H!P Kids shouldn't be neglected!
Being a Kids fan I am highly annoyed xD Risu will say the same

and I guess recently we haven't been posting also due to lack of interesting news
all we see is S/mileage and Momusu...

Well there you have it Blatant Unfairness
(though it is a nice photo)

P.S. you can tell how much I put off doing my homework xP
UsaTEN

*Coughs* well actually I like C-ute's outfits the best...

Berryz Koubou - Fankora Preview

1 minute previews from the Fankora Concert~

Maji Bomber
woow these outfits are cool! I'm very happy that they're getting better outfits, and not matching too~

Special Generation
it's THE Berryz song

questions, why does Risako get the worse outfit? well actually it's not that bad here, but it's still the plainest out of them all. but if you look at other concerts, her outfit always looks unattractive..
Miyabi's costume is nice, and it's her hair sans extensions!
Chii's hair looks good too~

RisUsa taking a step towards Japan 8D Japan Matsuri

Yesterday there was a Japan Matsuri, in other words a Japanese Festival which Risu and I went to~
it was really fun^^

some pictures to share~
the reeallly cute drummers, they were little children
we managed to catch a few performances before they finished
there was a little boy (bottom right corner) with the cymbals and he danced while playing~

our lunch
Risu's Sushi and Usa's Macha Mango Icecream
twas Usaa's first time trying macha....and it was verrry bitter! the ice cream evened it out though^^
sorry Airi can't say it's my favourite, but it has a nice aftertaste xD

there was a big wall to draw on
so Risu drew Airi xD
and wrote Buono at the bottom

Usa doing calligraphy!
the nice japanese girl showed me how to write what I want
'UsaTEN aishiteru'
which was to thank followers and fans!
Risu wrote Risuten too, but I don't have a pic unfortunately
(Erm erm I'll scan it in one day xD)
Usa going Yoyo fishing!
basically you pay £1 and they give you a hook on paper and you have to try fish a water yoyo out without the hook breaking
notice it was just little kids playing it then you have Usaa...xD;

 
Yatta! I did itt
Usa and the water Yoyo <3

Samurai armour

katakana!

this is random but mitte! Pochama!!

annd saved the best til last xD
at the Matsuri there were lots of Japanese students in uniforrm standing around or helping out
soshitee..

Risu: Ano...sumimasen...shashin wo totte mo ii desuka?
(Erm...excuse me...is it ok if we take a picture with you?)
Guy on the far left: ....ii desuka? (Turns around)
(Is it ok?)
Guy next to him: Wahhh *blablablabala*
(They start to be awkward and argue amongst themselves)
Risu: ER......
Guy on the far left: ....ii desuyo. *nods*
(It's fine)
Risu: AH! Hai hai~
Guy on the right: Isshou ni? isshou ni?
(Together? together?)
Risu: Hai hai isshou ni isshou ni!!!
(Yes yes together together!!)
yatta! xD

hope you enjoyed the post~

Elegant Risako

these covers has been release a while I know, but thought I should post them anyhow xD
when I first saw the name of Risako's single I though it was ELEPHANT girl, I still do sometimes xDD; so I thought, wth what a weird name for a single....then it wasn't till I was discussing it with Risu that I realized it was ELEGANT girl xD; baka Usagi strikes again

Risako looks really grown up here! and I have mixed feelings about the cover, but overall I think it looks cool, though the hair at the front is a bit strange xD
I think the purple and the dress fits the elegant word well

The green matched Ogawa Mana better than Risako...but I like Risako here, she looks really cute, really reminds me of when she first debuted, to me she was THE cutest H!P kid

I don't like her look here that much.. I prefer her hair up methinks

but I really can't wait to hear a preview, it's been ages! wonder when we get to see something.. I wonder what her PV will be like..
I really think she's Tsunku's favourite, she's the first out of the H!P kids to get a solo pv!
UsaTEN

Hahahaha I laughed because I actually keep thinking it's Elephant girl too! But I love this look Risako is giving out since I prefer her without a fringe. She does the pouty look very well~ I'm quite excited for this actually!~
Risako~

Total votes 79

I'm SO sorry for not active, gomenasai gomenasai! However Risu and I have been very busy with school and studying, we're entering a very important year ><
so thank you for still coming and understanding

but anyways debut single!
the single that officially marks you as a proper band!

Sakura Chirari very very easily gets into your head, as I'm typing this I'm singing sakura chirari, naaamida na do~ *with the hand actions* you can't really go wrong with this song, simple tune and steps, and I do love Airi's first lines, I remember reading someones blog who said they always played the first 30 secs over and over xDD

Anata Nashe de wa Ikite Yukenai, honestly this name, I can never remember it! I just refer it to Anata N.... this is quite different and not a simple one like Sakura Chi, cause it's quite original, upbeaty, and I always hear Berryz talk about how hard the dance was (looks it too)

Yume Miru 15 sai is also another very catchy song, the instrumental sticks in my head, and their funny hand movements, I would like this more, if they did better on the high notes... Tsunku loves giving them really high notes that they can't properly reach doesn't he...

tbh I've never heard Morning Coffee or Otome no Inori..or I might have heard a bit, but the tune doesn't stick...but for both artists their style has come a looong way

Once again thanks for voting everyone!!
next time it's What is the best number for a group? please participatee!
UsaTEN

Yes Yes! Congratulations Sakura Chihari!
Yes I must apologize tooo x( Been so busy and stressed very very very sorry! I try my best to translate whenever I can so I'm very very sorryyy

Anyway, personally I'm not much of a fan of sakura chihari, I prefer C-ute's indie songs before.
My favourite? ...my favourite... it'd be either Anata nashi de wa ikite yukenai or Yumemiru 15 sai
and I'm like Usagi in which.. I don't really listen to Otome no Inori and I've never heard of Morning Coffee either

Please vote in this next poll~ Thank you very much for being patient with us

Iya~ It was seriously too hot *laughs*
On top of that, at the beginning
there was a number of times my friends and me weren't motivated but gradually we welled up and already whilst singing a soran song
we weeded ^ヮ^;
A number of times we were too hyper, well to make the school beautiful
it a good thing so~ ^ヮ^ ♥ *laughs*
After we finished, our teacher gave us pokari and tea ♥ヮ♥!!
Thank god thank god >w< *laughs*

After that, today

1st September~2nd September in Mt Fuji ★ Chisato


℃-ute 公式ブログ/9月1日~9月2日in富士山★千聖 画像1 It's been a day since I saw everyone ♥
I couldn't update yesterday
I'm sorry (-_-'')
But the reason why I couldn't update
I have a reason for that!

Okai Chisato!
Somehow somehow
In the space of two days
I climbed to the top
of Mt Fujiiii!!!
Yeaay ♥
I'm different from Nakajima-san
I'm not half-assed ;D
℃-ute 公式ブログ/9月1日~9月2日in富士山★千聖 画像2℃-ute 公式ブログ/9月1日~9月2日in富士山★千聖 画像3
(ERR she used "hetare" which means "coward" but I'm also assuming it means someone who gives up easily too....too slangy am I being? )
The first picture
Around from 12 o'clock
I started climbing
I took 6 hours to reach
the 8th inn!
Iya~ I was pretty
tired out! (-_-''');
But with my
papa and my friend
together we went
and combined our powers
and swallowed any complaints
and made sure to do our best ♥ヮ♥
We are food at the inn and
I don't know when
we slept because
we fell asleep pretty quickly *laughs*
By the way there isn't any
signal in the inn so I couldn't
write the blog m(_ _)m

And and
on the second day
I wanted to see the sunrise from the peak of the mountain so
we left the inn 
a little early in the morning!!
It was pretty intense
until the 9th inn! *laughs*
The most intense part was the coldness
At this time of the year already,
the atmospheric temperature around the area on
Mt Fuji feels like it's winter *sweatdrops*
It took about 2 hours
to reach the summit of the mountain :)

Picture 1 "Made it to the top!"
Exhauooorsted~ *laughs*

And! We properly ♥ヮ♥
For 3776 Metres :)
We went to the highest peak ♥ヮ♥
From the summit to the highest peak
we walked a bit again (-_-'')
The appearance of the pill of the highest peak
was pretty much too steep *laughs*
It wouldn't be the highest peak if it was easy to get to!
someone said to me *laughs*

It was incredibly steep
and it was a long distance to go however (-_-'')
It felt like such an achievement
when I saw the sunrise ^ヮ^
I thought to myself
I'll feel happiness in everything
I must do my best in everything
at my pace!
I must be grateful
for everything
I thought ^ヮ^

Picture 2. ":) The sunrise :)"
It was really beautiful ^ヮ^ ♥
I was moved (/TヮT\)

And on the way down I still
went down
with my own two feet *laughs*
I was going up so
of course going home...
means going down...^ヮ^;
Going down seems easier
but it's just as much hard as doing up, I asked if
on the way down I have to carry my own body weight + 5 kilos
my body *sweatdrops*
In actuality, if you're going down
it's probably of course more intense
for your feet than going up TヮT
I took 5 hours on the way back
going down >w<

Really really
Going up and down was severe
but it trained my soul!
I said at first that I detested
going up Mt Fuji a bit
Papa took me against my own will
up there ^ヮ^
Now I'm grateful to Papa ♥
I want to go next time

This was a long post I'm sorry (´^`)
But I couldn't
express Mt Fuji's wonderfulness
with just one word \(^ー^)/

Picture 3. (bestShot)

Well then baichaako ♥

----------------------------------

That was sooooooooo long...though it was interesting! Personally I'd never do anything like that.. *too lazy* ...plus I'm not a nature-y type of person anyway.. so I wouldn't know how to appreciate the sunset too much..xD; 7/TEN-Risu

℃-ute 公式ブログ/克服っ 画像1ConquestGood evening ☆=
It's Maimi

Today I matured in one way ^ヮ^

That is.......

I was able to eat uni

...Lately I've been able to conquest over the foods and drinks I dislike ^ヮ^

℃-ute 公式ブログ/克服っ 画像2Plain Chocolate,

Coffee,
(Though if I add milk with it...^ヮ^;)

And Uni....

I'm really happy I've added up things I can eat you know~ ♪

....Speaking of which, recently I used my own method way of conquesting over things I'm not good with ***

That is~ ♥

I think to myself whilst I eat: "It's delicious!! It's delicious!!" ^ヮ^

With today's Uni too

"Alright!! This is my chance to make a conquest over this! ***"

I thought when I ate it

...However, as I tried eating it

"Ah XoX; It probably is impossible afterall...*sweatdrops*"

I was like...

"Iya!! It's not like that! It's delicious *** It's delicious ***"

I forcibly persuaded myself to eat it

And then

"Huh!? It has a flavour like eggs ♥"

I became like...

"I can do this!!"

My plan for conquest was a succeeded peacefully d(^ヮ^)

This plan is pretty effective! *** ♪

Everyone else, with the food your dislike

Try thinking to yourself while you eat it
"It's delicious *** It's delicious ***" please ♥

I too will steadily decrease the amount of things I dislike ;) ♥

P.S

The picture is of today's Uni ♥
(Picture 1)

After that
The valentine's day chocolates I made for the members

Plain Chocolate ♥
(Picture 2)

------------------------------------

Erm I'm not sure if it's "plain chocolate" cause literally it's like "raw chocolate" but that sounds funny right? haha... well anyway...

IT'S BEEN A WHILE! I'm sorry! First of all... my internet died.... but then it came back but I was so swamped with school work (art =_=;) that I haven't had time to do any translations sorrry! I don't know if it'll always be like that so be prepared for if I make late updates very very very very sorry!!

Though er don't worry!!! It's part of my course to translate in Japanese so I'll be getting better hopefully! and your translations will be much more accurate!! Ok then!

Well I wish I could conquest over food I hate...I do try it somtimes; I tried very hard to get over sushi and I managed to do it so... I'll keep doing my best Maimi too!! 7/TEN-RisuTEN
