She wasn’t my oshi, but I definitely had a soft spot for her looks and her Osaka dialect. I miss her.

It’s always lonely when we lose a girl who has an impression of being someone who’s always smiling. Read more…

Although her looks might have you think otherwise, Kishimon is actually a pretty earnest person. She’s probably going to read all the recommendations you leave her in the comments.

Why not just ask Mofuo?

Oh, by the way!
When I walked down to the audience area after today’s concert…
I found lots of trash on the floor. (￣Д￣;) (shock)
Everyone! Please don’t forget to take your plastic bottles and other trash with you after concerts! Let’s do our best, okay?! Let’s take good care of our important live venues! 😊😊

Just how bad was it, seeing that even a member had to make a blog post about it…?

Okay, this is just embarrassing.

To steal any forgotten belongings.

Oh, the drama! Apparently they got into an argument one time when it was just the two of them in the dressing room. Turns out they really were on bad terms.

A one-on-one fight actually leading to them becoming friends…?
They couldn’t make their delinquent nature any more obvious if they tried. (laughs)

Around the Gomattou days?

That’s women for you.
For those of you who have made it this far into the book, I’m sure you’re by now well aware of just how much I love women and how much I think about them. But was I also able to convey to you my even greater passion for this thing called “music”?
Well, in any case. I feel like I still haven’t said all I have to say. That’s why I’m now writing this afterword.
To be honest with you, when I first took on the job of producing Morning Musume I never expected society to accept the group to the extent that they now have. Getting to appear on Kouhaku, creating new units using the members of Morning Musume… to say nothing of getting to write this very book. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine these things to happen. Ha ha ha.
Why did people take such an interest in Morning Musume and Taiyou to Ciscomoon? When I think about it now, it must’ve been because of the individual charms of each and every member.
When they’d only just debuted, me and the staff around me would be giving them all sorts of advice in an attempt to draw out those charms. When the cameraman said he was going to take close-up shots, some members would take that as a sign that they themselves needed to physically walk closer to the camera — that was the extent to which they knew nothing at all. Other members, we’d literally have to teach them how to hold a microphone. But now that they’re popular and they’ve become confident, they’ve also become better performers than I could’ve ever imagined.
This might sound weird, but I feel like a father who is looking at his daughters and thinking, “you’ve gotten so big…” It’s almost to the extent where it makes me tear up just thinking about it. (Man, have I gotten old…)
This is a quick post to let you know that I’ve created a Discord server for Wota in Translation.
Now, to be completely honest, I’m a total newbie to the service itself — I literally just made an account today — and I’m still trying to figure it all out. I don’t know if anything will actually come of it, but I thought it might be something fun to try out. Thankfully, a couple of helpful people have volunteered with helping me manage it so I can just sit back and hopefully not screw it up. For me, personally, I hope to make it a server that I can mostly take a hands-off approach with; something that I can hop on to chat with you guys whenever I’m not busy translating something.
In any case, feel free to come and join us in discussing all things Hello! Project and related topics.
PS. I should also mention the H!P servers that were there earlier: Hello! Project Fans, Hello!Project Chat, and Hello! Project Wiki. I recommend checking them all out and seeing what suits you best!
The gradual appeal of a highly self-conscious woman
You probably know this already, but I happen to like women who are exceptional.
Even when I was in kindergarten, I would spare no effort in trying to attract the attention of girls around me. I would be challenging all types of different girls. But even for someone like me there’s one type of girl who I’m not very good at dealing with, and that’s someone who comes across as being highly self-conscious. That’s not to say I dislike girls like that; it’s simply that I’ll find myself arbitrarily deciding, “someone like her probably wants nothing to do with someone like me.“
I feel that Abe is most likely that type of a girl.
What sorts of things would make me think that a girl was highly self-conscious? First of all, one characteristic of girls like that is that most of the time they’re very serious in nature. Even when they’re with their male friends they never get too crazy — they never forget to remain at least somewhat graceful and mild-mannered.
Also, they have an air about them that makes it feel like it wouldn’t be okay to lightly whack them on the head if they were being silly. If the members were all just ordinary friends of mine, I could easily picture myself giving a head whack to girls like Yaguchi or Iida for example. But with Abe, I just don’t think I could. Someone like Moritaka Chisato is like that, too — no matter which way you look at it, doesn’t it just feel strange to even think about giving a whack to someone like Moritaka Chisato? To give another example: I could see myself whacking Utada Hikaru’s head, but the bar would be set much higher with Amuro Namie’s head. I could probably give Hamasaki Ayumi a poke — not an especially strong one, just something to convey that she was being silly.
I wonder where these individual differences between girls come from?
