    Some sad personal news: her grandfather is ill. Her mother had to drop out of the election for a member of the diet from Miyagi Prefecture because she has to take care of Karen's grandparents.

    Her mother, Miwa Sugawara (herself an actress), was running for office, but she dropped out because of her father's condition.

    "Miwa Sugahara (51), who was nominated for a candidacy. According to the party concerned, Sugawara herself offered to decline the request because of the care of the parents. Sugarwara is the mother of actress Iwata Karen (20), an idol group AKB 48 former member.

    According to officials from the Ritsumeikan official this month, Mr.Sugawara's 80s father said that his physical condition was broken, and Mr. Sugawara reported that "it is difficult to balance electoral activity and parental care". The party's decision to accept Mr. Sugawara's intention has returned to blank selection. The party prefectural government will discuss the response soon."

    Karen has announced that she will have a birthday event on 10 May! Lucky for Japanese Karen fans that they can attend! :ome:

    Also she announced her next stage play 「どれミゼラブル」/ Doremiserable (?), which also starring Johnny's Jr's member and New Gavan Ishigaki Yuma :banana:

    She's also called again for Mahjong in Topme Tottande! Looks like she'll be called again in the future!

    Also I just heard the news about Karen's mom today. Wow, she's really something, to be offered candidacy in a party. But of course, family comes first. Hoping that Karen's grandfather will get better!

    Hey guys, I wasn't being able to keep up with the translations due to life's getting busier than ever, so I'm sorry because I don't think I could update frequently from now on..

    I'm just here for quick post of reminding you that today is Iwata Karen's 21th Birthday.

    Happy Birthday Karen!! :ome:

    I was in Japan last month and manage to catch Karen's stage play Futako-Tamagawa no Koi (http://futakotamagawanokoi.tokyo/).

    In this story, Karen starred as a housewife stuck in an arranged marriage, but one day, she ran into a young man Ayase, and a forbidden love affair blossom. But is it all a coincidence, or is something else at play?

    I got some pretty good seat, front and center, and Karen shows a wide range of acting from innocence to going yandare at one point. Pretty good overall, and Tanabe Miku was also in it, so I got to see two AKB grads this time.

    Got some photos and a poster, forgot to get the pin though.

    Karen has just posted a new dance video to her YT channel - she's dancing to a song by Mafumafu called 'Machigai Sagashi' with a partner who I think is credited as a choreographer called Otogi.
