    are they crazy doing such dangerous rock climbing?! :yikes:
    it's on a different level of the usual hiking or other challenges...
    one slip of hand or foot, and they are gone... wtf?

    Their route looks more edgy than when the AKB & NMB gals did their Mount Fuji.

    Hehehe enjoyed this 3 episodes.

    "mini live + HS" event @ Ueno Minakami Ongakudo (Tokyo) on 12/24
    looks like this was their biggest live so far. even Nogizaka's 3rd gen Mukai Hazuki attended it (apparently she is =LOVE's fan) [hehe]

    after this live =LOVE managed to get on the Twitter trend!

    #僕らの制服クリスマス (Bokura no seifuku Christmas) was 4th and #イコラブ (Ikorabu) was 8th!

    I love the amount of photos garnered from =LOVE. They seem to have more photo shots compared to the rest.
    Is there always a special area for photographers for =LOVE events or am I not searching hard enough for the rest ?

    fans aren't allowed to take photos at 4648g concerts, that's why you can only see few official photos from management or media.
    and yes, =LOVE have special areas dedicated to fan photographers - it's a fairly common practice among underground idol groups, and Sasshi used this opportunity from day 1 to promote the group, and now cameko, as fan photographers are called, became a part of =LOVE culture. they are even mentioned in the lyrics of Ikorabu Numa. at first, Sasshi hoped to get one "godly shot" like with Hashimoto Kanna, that would immediately propel the group to the stardom, but even without it, with lots of great photos, the group gets a great promotion.

    you can see cameraman areas on the both sides of the stage here, for example

    well, posting photos, taken later with the rest of the fans, is kinda meaningless, since you can't see the cameko areas ;)

    there will be an important announcement on the last live of 2017 on 12/29!
    I wonder what it is about? something about their upcoming stage play or announcement of 3rd single, or something else?

    English translation of "Todoite LOVE YOU♡" (Let my LOVE YOU reach you ♡) lyrics (Japanese lyrics are here)
    Lyrics: Sashihara Rino;
    Music: Narimoto Tomomi (成本智美);
    Arrangement: Furukawa Takahiro (古川貴浩);
    MV director: Tsuchiya Takatoshi (土屋隆俊)



    You can't see my throbbing heart
    Even though I think so much of you,
    Don't tease me like that,
    Turn around!

    Ah, cute upturned eyes,
    Pleasant smile with double tooth - am I not cute?

    If I step out of the classroom,
    Everyone is being rooted to the spot and give me hot glances.

    But you are reading a thick book in the library alone
    Have you no interest in me?
    Even though I like you so much!

    You can't see my throbbing heart
    Even though I think so much of you,
    Don't tease me like that,
    Turn around!

    For the first time, I found a question
    That doesn't appear in tests.
    Should I move closer to look at you?
    Please notice me!

    I am sure nobody except me knows,
    That you have cute eyes when you take off your glasses.

    I've tried to convey my feelings to you so many times,
    Yet you're further from me than the stars!

    In that dream of mine, we were in love with each other
    Please listen to me,
    I like you so much!

    Please believe me - I won't tell "Love you!" to anyone else.
    Catch those important words.

    I'll say softly with my lips "Kiss me" only to you.
    Please break the silence, I can't look you in the eyes,
    It's dazzling!

    I am tired of looking at that troubled face,
    I'll say it one last time, so listen carefully.
    Hey, catch my
    "I love you very much!"

    You can't see my throbbing heart
    Even though I think so much of you,
    Don't tease me like that,
    Turn around!

    Throbbing me can't stop.
    I draw near you
    And put the light on in the dark library room.
    Hug me!

    Thank you for all the lyric translations! At first I was going to ask if it's possible for someone to put the Japanese lyrics on here in Romaji because I still really struggle with Kanji, but I was glad to discover the lyrics offer kana writing above the Kanji.

    Todoite LOVE YOU is my favourite song and music video of theirs so far, and I'm glad the lyrics are this cute <3

    I like that they started with =LOVE, but I feel like they sounded quite out of breath towards the end of the song already... and like they were more shouting than singing after the second chorus. I wish they would focus more on breathing techniques than looking cute, but as far as I saw most people don't value singing skills as highly for idols as looks.

    But, they did look very cute, I have to give them that~

    ^ I wonder if Sana will always be Miko. she's the only member that won't have coming of age ceremony because she is already older than 20.

    ===========

    an interesting find - that punch sound "Dyukushi" that Kiara makes... Sasshi was interesting in it since her elementary school.
    she wrote about it in her "Sashihara Quality" blog back in 2010 [hehe]

    nice episode! a lot of new info about members.
    looks like Naatan is filthy rich)) her father is a restaurant owner, and her family has a villa in Karuizawa, a popular summer resort. she got herself a new neta))
    Hitomi was Japan's representative in baton twirling when she was in elementary school. but I think in one of her showrooms she said that Katomina (NGT) is better than her at it.
