1. Do you remember the first time you heared this song? Did you like it?  I heared it for the first time when I was watching Maiha's graduation. I adored it from that moment on. It's so cute! 2. Do you think this song would have been a good single? Yes I think this might have been a really nice and cute single. It's catchy and cute.

S/mileage and the day after

Afbeelding
Hello everyone, How are you all doing? Did your tears stop flowing? I am still kinda emotional about the whole graduation. Hearing sad music or Mikaeri Bijin makes me all teary. But one day I will be able to listen to it without feeling sad. I hope Sayumi had a great day and that she will have the most wonderful life she can get. She deserves it for making so many people happy.  Today all the profile pictures for Morning Musume '14 were changed. No Sayumi. It looks kinda empty. But the members look amazing and ready. Ofcourse the 12th gen is not yet included, because they won't officially join until January of 2015. So we will have to wait a few more weeks for them to be members.  Time goes incredibly fast and now Morning Musume has no members left of the Morning Musume I became a fan of.. And that is weird. Ofcourse I understand the concept of Morning Musume and I love the changing around and all the new members, but still it's weird. 
Yesterday S/mileage preformed as an…

[Graduation Special] A river of tears: Michishige Sayumi Thank you for everything

Afbeelding
And so an era ends. Morning Musume's 6th generation member Michishige Sayumi has officially graduated Morning Musume and Hello!Project. She left with a tear and a smile. 
This must have been the saddest Graduation I have ever seen. All the members were so sad and crying so much, Sayumi got hurt, but still went on preforming. And maybe it was because I got to see it live on a broadcast. It was amazing to be part of it like this.
I think it was the perfect ending for Sayumi. The songs were amazing! A lot of great Sayumi leads.  I loved how they did Mikaeri Bijin and how the 12th gen preformed with them! I am incredibly sad I didn't see the messages, but it won't be long ;). Sayumi not reading a letter, but speaking from the heart was perfect. She knew what she wanted the fans to hear and she said it. Her choice for the graduation song was unexpected but really awsome. Akai Freesia has so much memories for her and us. Aruiteru was also a very good choice and the ending with …

Well guys, time has gone fast and the concert just ended.  Such a heart felt concert. I cried during the ending where they showed a VTR.

She did her speach. Like a pro! She did awsome. Her graduation song is the song she started with: Akai Freesia!

My internet connection was lost, which means I did not see the messages. I did hear Mikaeri Bijin (with 12th gen dancing) and it seems like Sayumi collapsed between Riho's and Eripon's speech and had to sit on a chair.

And the last part is starting. The last song was Be Alive, which was to sad for words. I was crying like a baby.

Currently I am trying everything I can to watch Sayumi's graduation concert live.  And I have had some good moments (I saw Shabadabadoo and Egao no kimi ga!), but currently the connection is super bad. But here are some screenshots to give you an idea of the concert: Haruna during her little Sub-leader speach

[Graduation Special] Michishige Sayumi: Mikaeri Bijin

Afbeelding
I can't believe we just have a few hours with Michishige Sayumi as Momusu member left.  Michishige has been in Morning Musume from the first time I became their fan.  She has been in the background for a long time, but now she is one of the most populair members of Morning Musume. Michishige will graduate from Morning Musume in just a few hours and I can not believe it. When she announced her graduation it seemed like it was so far away. It always seems so far away when a member announced their graduation, but it's always so soon. 

When Sayumi announced her graduation, I was not suprised. She is older than all the other girls and she has been a member for so long. Sayumi has given up so much to be an idol. I can totally understand she wants some time for herself now. A lot of her best friends in Morning Musume left and she must have been kinda lonely, eventhough she obviously adores her kouhai. 
Tomorrow is the day we are going to say goodbye to Michishige Sayumi, our looking…

Are you happy?

Hello everyone, How are you all doing? Are you doing well? Are you satisfied with your life? Are you healthy? Are you doing the things you want? Are you happy?
I wonder so much about other people. Are they happy? Do they like what they are doing? Are they making their dreams come true? There are so many people in the world, I kinda feel small. Sitting at the table, writing this post. I think about all those people in my street, doing their own thing, living their own life. It's weird thinking about it. That everyone has their own thoughts in their minds, things I can never see of reach. 

Today I feel happy. I feel happy about a lot of things. I feel happy about being health, I am happy because the people I love are healthy. I am happy because I feel like currently I am able to be me. 
A few months ago it rained. It didn't just rain, the water just fell from the sky. It was around 9 p.m. and it was raining so much. But it was summer, so eventhought it was raining, it was warm.…

Hello! Project's winter tour 2015

Afbeelding
Hello everyone! I was just writing a post about Hello! Project's winter tour for next year and I realised how much things will be happening during that tour. But because my Sakura Mankai blog is kind of an news blog, I decided to talk a bit more about it and what I expect. Let's have a look at all the things that will happen!
First tour with Yajima Maimi as H!P leader As we only have a few days left until Sayumi graduates, a new H!P leader will step up. It was announced some time ago that Yajima Maimi would become leader, because Shimizu Saki will be graduating next year. Maimi did say she wanted to lead H!P with Saki until she graduates, but officially she is the leader. It will be exiting to see a leader who did not come from the Mother ship (Momusu ofc.). But I think Maimi will do a good job and will be a fair leader!
Last H!P tour for Berryz Koubou Berryz fans have been dreading this. Everything is coming to an end around Berryz Koubou and it is quite hard. Berryz have been…

1. Do you remember the first time you heared this song? Did you like it? It is a really cool and dramatic song. I like the high kanata's and the contrast of the chorus. 2.

(Finding solo pictures was hard, so here is an adorable group pic instead!) 3. What do you like about this song and MV? The song is cool and dramatic, but still fits the little Berryz. I loved how futuristic the MV looked and those mobile phones!!  4. What do you dislike about this song or MV? Mm I would have love to hear Saki, Chii, Maa and Maiha sing more. 5. What do you think of the outfits? Blue, but fresha and cute! I love how everyone has a diffrent outfit, but they still look amazing togheter. 6. Post a video of your favorite …

Full Moon wo Sagashite

Afbeelding
Hello hello everyone! I can't believe I forgot how much I love reading Manga. I have so much Manga, but I wasn't reading any of them anymore. But now I am reading again and gosh did I miss it. It gives me such a relaxed feeling! My favorite Mangaka of all time is Tanemura Arina. I have a lot of her manga and I love her stories! Seeing her drawings make me really and I adore the stories. They are so divers and have such strong characters! Today I finished Full Moon wo Sagashite again and it stays such a good story. My favorite characters are definitly Meroko and Eichi. Eventhough I also love all the other characters.  Shinshi Doumei Cross is another Manga I adore. I love Haine and how strong she is. Such a cool character!
I have a lot of her manga (like I said before) and I also have a learn how to draw book from Arina! I think her drawings capture the emotions so perfectly, it kinda hurts.  I have to admit the animes that were made for the series don't do justice to her st…

Ah today will be a very bitter sweet Treasure Box, I kinda cheated and choose myself. But that's because she won't be a H!P member that long, which means I will just talk about her: Michishige Sayumi Name: Michishige Sayumi Nickname: Sayumin, Sayu, Shige-san Birthdate: July 13, 1989 Group: Morning Musume Gen: 6th gen
1. What do you like about this member?  I adore how cute she is but how she can also be extremely sexy. She looks cute in almost everything, she seems like a fun, but reliable leader and eventhough she can't sing that well I adore her songs.  2. What do you dislike about this member? I didn't like her spoiled brat act she did when I just got into the group.  3. When was the first time you saw this member? The first time I actually remember seeing her was during Koha's graduation.  4. How did she look? (Picture) 5. What was the first song you ever saw this girl in? Kimagure princess! 6. What was the first cd you bought with this girl in it? Seishun collectio…
