    Memi, with her strong legs, jumps at least as high as anyone else, and is among the neatest in flight.

    New blog post about Fukuoka, onigiri, the new Hiragana members, and including a secret message. All fun: she welcomes the new members, but with second thoughts in the secret message. Memi, Memi and Mii-pan, and some onigiri:

    Kakizaki Memi blog: Meals she couldn't tell about on KeyaBINGO. There were problems with the footage shot at the restaurant she chose (in Nagano) so she didn't have a turn giving "mother" a last meal. So she talks about two possible meals in her blog (both from Nagano restaurants, lol).

    New Hustle Press U18 Dear book featuring gravure of Memi and Mii-chan comes out 15 September.

    Kakizaki Memi blog: Shaved ice in the dressing room in Nagoya. And miso-stewed udon noodles after the show. And one of the best photos of Memi ever, taken by Harada Aoi. Shaved ice...want some?

    [​IMG]

    The catering table in the dressing room had a shaved ice machine and syrups. The members went back again and again.

    Memi has a half-hour Showroom broadcast at 8:30pm Japan time Monday evening. Preceded by Kumi, followed by Kage-chan and Sarina.

    In other future Memi appearances, she will sing on the hour-long yukata karaoke show that Keyakake will do next Sunday night. The promo at the end of this week's show includes a little bit of a Memi-Kumi duet. The last time I really heard her singing voice clearly was on her auditions over a year ago. Her voice was soft then, but she hit the notes. I look forward to hearing to what extent she has improved with all the training and practice over the past year.

    Memi blog post: Showroom, Sendai tour performance. She felt she didn't talk enough and wants to do her next Showroom with Kumi. I prefer Memi on her own.

    Memi's pumping out the blog posts, and the Keyaki messages.

    blog post: Niigata tour stop and determination to keep working hard
    blog post: Higashimura Mei's birthday
    blog post: KeyaKake Karaoke contest, and KeyaBINGO quiz

    Here's the Kumi-Memi duet from the karaoke contest. Kumi had more trouble hitting the right notes than Memi did, but Shii-chan very kindly pointed out that it was in a key (or a register) that she herself found impossible to sing. It got too low even for Memi, who has the group's second-lowest voice after Kyonko. In fact, as far as simply hitting the notes went, Memi was well above average for the entire group.



    On Keyaki Message, recently Memi is wishing us all good night and good morning every day. She has posted pics of herself, of herself with Kage-chan, of her soy-milk carton. And she says that when she was out shopping, she was asked for help by a foreigner, in English. This was a problem because she couldn't understand what was said, but she ended up being able to help them anyway. "English is important," she concluded.

    On Showroom broadcasts last year, Memi demonstrated that her English pronunciation was excellent, for a Japanese-speaker. She even pronounced the "L" fairly clearly. But it seems her command of the actual language is not so great.

    And another Memi blog post, after the Sunday handshake event. She wore pajamas. Plus a new pic of Memi with Hirate (low quality image).

    Kakizaki Memi blog: the Hiragana TV drama starts shooting. Memi says lots of things about it seem difficult, but the whole group will go for it and will definitely make an enjoyable drama.

    @MasToppu -- How about the loose fall of hair, or putting it up (second photo is from a year ago):
