Your thread title says “Maa-chan handshake events“, but in her case what they really are is “Maa-chan observation events.”

She tends to be interested if you talk to her about something that has to do with animals.

Maa-chan’s most common behavioral patterns at her handshake events:
– Running around the room
– Clinging to the wall
– Sitting under the table
– Lying across the table
– Not being there

That indescribable feeling of disappointment when Maa-chan doesn’t find your joke funny…

She’s not really good at judging what is and what isn’t okay to say, so whenever you ask her about something that she’d have to make that judgement about, she just answers that it’s a secret.

Me: “Maa-chan, you’re tired, aren’t you?“
Maa: “It’s a secret.“
Not making this up. orz

Is there no one around who had a good interaction with her by just saying something normal?

I just look like your everyday old man, but she’s always really polite towards me. She always shakes my hand with a big smile and then gives me a very deep bow when I’m leaving. I think she might be mistaking me for someone from her work.

I’ve never experienced her not being there when I’ve went to her handshake events.

That’s never happened to me either, but after shaking hands with other members and walking past the exit of Maa-chan’s booth, I’ve seen her hiding under the table as well as in the shadows behind a board. But the thing is, she doesn’t look like she’s up to mischief or anything… her facial expression is dead serious and emotionless. It’s pretty scary actually.

I’m going to a handshake event tomorrow and I have two tickets for Maa-chan. I’m scared…
143: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/09/13(金) 18:14:14.48 0
She shows absolutely no interest towards topics she doesn’t care about.
144: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/09/13(金) 18:17:52.88 0
It’s useless complimenting her, asking her questions or asking for advice. You just have to go in with the mindset that you’re going to play with a child.

When I entered her booth, Maa-chan was making this strange sound until she even surprised herself with the sound she was making. She was going all “Huh? Huuuh?!“
190: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/09/14(土) 09:29:36.04 0
Me: “Maa-chan, make a really triumphant face!”

There is no counter-measure against Maa-chan when she’s tired or bored.

That reminds me, wasn’t this thread going to be about coming up with counter-measures? Because now it’s just turned into a support group for her victims.

It’s like how when you try to do something nice for a cat who’s feeling displeased — you’re only going to make things worse. You just have to feel happy that you get to see her in the first place.

Even the pandas at the Ueno Zoo have days when they just sleep facing the other direction. It’s all about luck with Maa-chan.

Talking with Maa-chan after getting our polaroid taken:
Maa: “Congratulations! So how old are you?”
Me: “It’s a secret.”
Maa: “How old are you?!”
Me: “It’s a secret.”
Maa: “400 years old?”
Me: “Yep, the same as you!”
Maa: “So 400!”
From today onwards when someone asks me, I’m going to say I’m 400 years old.
Maa-chan was so obedient today… (cries)

When I entered the booth, Maa-chan was facing back towards me, hitting the wall.
Me: “What’s your recommended food from Hokkaido?”
Her reply was that gesture that foreigners do when they don’t understand what you’re saying.
Maa: “Bye bye.”
Capturing Maa-chan was impossible for me…

I didn’t get to shake hands with her much as she was busy doing this weird dance.

Sorry for the slow reply. I just asked Maa-chan if she was sleepy. She strongly denied it before doing >>383.

I thought these threads about Maa-chan were mostly just jokes, but having now seen Maa-chan hitting the wall, lying across a table and peeking out from her booth, I now know they’re pretty accurate. (laughs)

When I entered Maa-chan’s lane, she was looking down at the table, looking troubled.
Masaki: “Umm, how much is 5 divided by 3?”
Masaki: “5 divided by 3!”
Me: “Something around 1.6 or so?”
Masaki: “Thank you!” (waving bye bye)
What the…?!? (laughs)

@supra80_SHU: When I entered Maa-chan’s lane, she was banging the table and getting into the rhythm, dancing and singing something like “executive baby, executive baby~“. (laughs) Then she started insisting that I start dancing, too. So after we danced together, I was pulled away before I even got the chance to shake hands with her! (laughs) Man…
407: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/09/15(日) 19:32:20.57 0
She’s showing no signs of slowing down. (laughs)

I’m not a Maa-chan oshi, but I went out and shook hands with her both yesterday and today. I’d write a report, but she did so much stuff I’m having a hard time conveying with words. (laughs)

Me: “Hi there!“
Maa: (clinging to the wall with her back towards me)
Me: “Hey! Maa-chan!“
Maa: “Ah!” (comes back to the table and shakes my hand)
Me: “What were you doing?“
Maa: (starts sleeping while shaking my hand)
Me: “Are you sleepy?“
Me (as I’m being moved along): “I’ll tell your manager!“
Maa: “Waaaaahh!” (pretends to cry)
Me: “Sorry. Just kidding.“

What I’d like to know is just what the guy keeping time inside the booth thinks about all this.
Henkka: It takes a certain kind of genius to be able to bring grown men to the brink of nervous breakdown by simply being tired. And Maa-chan has what it takes.

This girl is a labyrinth, who have no idea of what is going on. And once you are trapped, you will be stuck there forever. OMG,how can I admire her more..
Masaki Sato, the Trickster God of the Morning Musume pantheon.
Hahaha god, these just make me want to go to her handshake event so badly orz
This girl is unpredictable!!!
I want to go to “Maa-chan observation events.” >v<
I have never been to individual handshake event but this thread seriously does make think about doing so. Beyond that, can someone tell whether Ma-chan really do something like this!?
My most recent Maa-chan handshake.
me: Maa-chan looks happy today what have y ….
maa: (pulled her hands away right) bye – bye
me: !!!??? . . .
while it may be fun reading these stuff but it happened to me over and over and I started avoiding Maa-chan. That event above was because I have 1 ticket left I couldn’t trade and Maa-chan never fails being Maa-chan.
I want to buy one of those cat toys that has a stick, a string, and a feather on the end of it and dangle it over the wall into Maa-chans handshake area to see if she jumps at it.
i wonder if it would be dangerous to give her a laser pointer?
Although I’ll cadidly say there’s not a known impulse towards idols that’s entirely alien to me, this idea of handshake “events” with booths and whatnot kinda creeps me out.
A Maa-chan handshake event seems like the most entertaining thing on earth… H!P should just start filming her booth and release them as DVD magazines lol.. They would probably be huge sellers and be absolutely hilarious
lol, cunning maa-chan
I may be laughing at this now but at the same time I’m very afraid
It’s actually my dream to go one of those booths
but these posts are making me scared

One by one I told each of the 10th gen members how I’d attended all of their 100+ performances so far. Iikubo, Ishida and Kudo all acted more or less surprised, but Maa-chan shocked me by being completely unfazed, instead asking me “and what did you think about our growth thus far?” (laughs)
