    Sasaki Ayaka: ☆It's cold. This is Aarin.☆

    An Aarin parade. (laugh)


    DO-N DO-N DO-N DO----N (。-∀-)


    It's been really cold. (laugh)

    Aarin can't let go of her hot beverage. (laugh)

    Though the almanac says that it's already spring~

    Ah, for Setsubun this year
    Aarin did bean throwing with Kanako-chan ・。°~ ヾ(・ω・ )

    And ate ehomaki with Tomomin-!

    Will it be cold tomorrow too? (´・д・`)

    Aarin will go to sleep wearing fluffy socks- (´-ω-`)

    Good night! image image

    1. Setsubun is the day before the beginning of Spring in Japan. The name literally means “seasonal division”, and is celebrated yearly on February 3 as part of the Spring Festival.
    2. Ehomaki is a sushi roll usually eaten on Setsubun.
    3. One traditional practice of Setsubun is to throw roasted beans either out the door or at a member of the family wearing a demon mask, while saying “Demons out! Luck in!”.

    Momoclo's Valentine event was hot & sticky and so sweet image

    We had a public recording event
    Momoiro Clover Z Momoclo Club ×◯×◯ ~Valentine DE NIGHT da~Z! 2014

    at Yokohama Arena (`・ω・´)

    To everyone who came to the venue
    and everyone who watched the LV at various locations from Hokkaido to Okinawa
    Thank you! (*´ω`*)

    It was so much fun image

    This year was an enjoyable live too
    with a short drama! live performances!
    and a correspondence corner with the listeners- (*´艸`*)

    And announcer Yoshida
    who would have gone on pushing us all around if noone put a stop it it!

    Thank you image

    Shimizu Michiko-san, who performed together with us at the Hibiya Outdoor Music Hall Fest,
    was our guest!


    Shimizu Michiko-san is so kind and interesting,
    she's such a great person~

    Thank you image

    And then, Matsumoto Akiko-san was a guest too!
    Thank you image


    Aarin wants to write...

    In more detail...

    but please listen to the radio instead ヾ(*・ω・*)ノ

    2 days ago,
    a super cool robot appeared and transformed into Aarin (laugh)


    Her name is Aarin Mega Cop! image

    She's so strong and cool~ \(°∀° )/

    She couldn't really dance...and it felt really horrible.

    She's already caused so much trouble to the other members and the staff

    And most importantly... to all the Mononofu who came down to have a good time, I'm so sorry.

    really wanted to go closer to everyone----

    As she stood on stage and watched the other members move closer to the audience and have so much fun,

    Aarin really wished she could fly, so that she could be with everyone too.

    Aarin wants to dance and run for everyone again soon ♪

    Sasaki Ayaka: Good evening. This is Aarin. ☆
    Posted on 2014-02-27 22:08:23

    Sorry for totally neglecting
    this blog lately! (´・д・`)

    Aarin's last update was about the Valentine's event
    That's just too much!

    Aarin needs to reflect...Reflect...!

    Let her upload some photos she took the other day! image

    It's a Taka-san festival image







    Rehearsals for Kokuritsu will begin this week.

    Finally----------! \(^o^)/

    We'll work hard with all our mights-!!

    But we have to take care not to catch a cold too (つω`*)

    This is great~

    Everyone forgave Aarin even though she didn't update the blog for such a long time (´・_・`)

    Everyone's hearts are just so accepting,
    it just makes Aarin so happy image

    ...Sorry (´・ω・`)
    The joke got out of hand (laugh)


    Aarin will try not to stay away for so long again!

    Well, it just feels bad (laugh)

    And when she's been away for too long,
    she doesn't know how to update a new entry...

    And it just gets harder as time passes. (laugh)

    Aarin will do some reflection...

    2 days ago,
    we took part in the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary event ☆彡

    Thank you to everyone who came-! ヾ(*・ω・*)ノ

    It's been so long since we were at Live House! ♪

    Everyone was so near
    And all the heat reached us loud and clear

    And made us feel "Wow----!" (laugh)

    But not being able to dance was so irritating.

    But it was still fun (*´艸`*)

    Reni-chan was so awesome too (laugh)


    Ah, it's not Reni-chan!

    It's Usagi-chan! image

    Sailor Moon is truly every girl's eternal obsession! (*∩ω∩)

    I'll punish you in the name of the Moon! image

    And then,
    following from last year, this year, a-a-again!

    We received the Ustream Grand Award (`・ω・´)

    Thank you---!!

    Aarin's so happy- \(°∀° )/

    Ustream is really the best!

    Live streaming, being able to hear everyone's voices firsthand through comments
    Being able to deliver our "right now" to everyone
    Then reviewing the recordings through streaming

    Thank you to everyone who has always supported our Ustream! (。・ω・)ノ゛

    We'll continue to do live streaming-!

    And it's already March!

    So fast----!

    Panic! Panic! (laugh)

    Aarin's days as a high school junior are also limited,
    and it'll be Kokuritsu too! (*´ω`*)

    Maybe it's about time we started a countdown?

    Sasaki Ayaka: ☆Strawberry~. This is Aarin.☆
    Posted on 2014-03-02 21:58:58

    Good evening- (*∩ω∩)

    Aarin ate strawberries!

    Aarin ate 2 packets by herself (*´艸`*)

    They were delicious~

    A burst of vitamins! ♪

    But! image
    There's still more left!

    Maybe she'll have them during bathtime- (。-∀-)

    Or maybe she'll have them after bathtime- (。-∀-)

    She will be using a new brand of shampoo today, which is exciting image

    It smells really nice~ image

    Because Aarin has long hair,
    the fragrance lingers for a long time, and that's great! \(^o^)/

    But she'll take care not to use too much!

    A photo taken during the recent "Gentou" event-!

    Aarin performed "Rock'n Rouge"
    dressed like this- ♪

    She forgot to upload it earlier- (laugh)

    So-, the countdown to Kokuritsu begins!

    10 more days...until the dream of Kokuritsu!

    It's cold ((*ω*))

    Shivers...! (laugh)

    ⑨ more days

    Until Kokuritsu.


    Ahh-, I'm so glad
    I brought Kimo-chan the soft toy to the venue with me---.

    I want to fall asleep
    with soft toys

    Two days ago!
    We took part in the departure ceremony for Michinoku SL Galaxy!

    Thank you (*^^*)

    Did everyone watch it on Mezamashi-?

    We travelled only a short distance, from Kamaishi Station to Toono Station,
    but the SL journey was totally enjoyable
    because of the interactions with the passengers! image

    The SL's steam whistle was so cool too- (*∩ω∩)

    Thank you!


    ...But it was so cold. (laugh)

    So so
    Let's continue the countdown today-! \(^o^)/

    ...Eh?! Eh-----------?!

    It's just 5 more days...

    To Kokuritsu?!?!


    What's with that?!

    Pannacotta!! (laugh)

    image Sasaki Ayaka image

    1. In the original entry, Aarin wrote "Nante kotta", which is translated to "What's with that?!". She followed it up with "Pannacotta", referencing the title of live concert "Oshiiro Manhattan ~Nantekotta Pannacotta~".

    Sasaki Ayaka: 11 March.
    Posted on 2014-03-12 01:41:17

    Today's the 3rd Anniversary of the Tohoku Disaster.

    The only thing I can do
    is to ensure that I "never forget this disaster".

    At 2:46pm today
    we stopped lessons and observed a minute of silence.

    I remember
    how we observed a minute of silence on stage last year
    for 11 March three years ago.

    Time will continue to pass
    and news about the disaster will continue to fade away

    But I'll never forget what happened on 11 March.

    And then, as Sasaki Ayaka of Momoclo, the only thing I can do
    is to "deliver smiles to everyone through song and dance".

    If our songs and dance
    can bring even the slightest smile to everyone's faces...
    Deliver even the smallest bit of energy...

    I will continue to put in every last bit of effort
    to continue working hard.

    When we visited Fukushima recently
    Everyone there welcomed us with smiles, and it was wonderful!

    Even after experiencing pain, everyone in Tohoku
    were still so kind

    I hope to continue to provide support to everyone
    well into the future!

    Sorry for this late update!

    Aarin is taking part
    in the movie "Saint Seiya LEGEND OF SANCTUARY"
    to be aired on 21 June
    as the goddess of war Athena!

    This is her first job as voice actress...

    She's really looking forward to everyone seeing this movie,
    but she's really nervous too-

    ...But the excitement still comes out top! (laugh)

    Aarin did her best, in her own way!

    Everyone, if you can
    please make your way to the cinemas then! image

    Athena-Aarin will be waiting for you! ///

    Aaaaah-, it was the best-!

    The National Stadium dream!

    To everyone who came-!
    To everyone who watched the LiveViewing-!
    To everyone who listened in at Teshiro Park-!

    Thank you for all your support! image

    Everyone, everyone, every---one!
    Thank you! ヾ(*・ω・*)ノ

    And then, to the Downtown Momoclo band
    the Tokyo Chorus, Oonuki Hiroshi-san,
    Tachiki Fumihiko-san,
    Matsuzaki Shigeru-san,
    Takamizawa Toshihiko-san,
    and 3B Jr

    Thank you!!

    It was so cold, was everyone alright?

    Aarin's all snuggled up at home now (laugh)

    To think that the lives at Kokuritsu happened just 2 days ago! (laugh)

    Whenever Aarin closes her eyes, she can still vividly recall
    the view she saw from the Olympic fire platform.

    Yep, she was really happy.

    She just couldn't calm herself down, so she couldn't speak well
    during the last greeting of the concert! (laugh)

    It was just an inexpressible feeling.

    And the concert was still going on.

    She knew that the last greeting was coming up,
    but she totally didn't plan on what to say. (laugh)

    In the end, she didn't know what to say
    and was totally incoherent! \( *´ω`* )/

    It was only after the live that she could really take a breath,
    and wish that she had said this or that. (laugh)

    She really wanted to say something better! (laugh)

    But some emotions just wouldn't surface until the concert was over
    So her mind was blank and she couldn't focus---. (laugh)

    However, to hold a concert at the Kokuritsu before its renovation
    And to have everyone gathered there

    It was just the most enjoyable and happiest
    2 days!

    Aarin is so happy-!

    This dream of a live at Kokuritsu
    has become part of Momoclo's history.

    A piece of history
    that we created with everyone who has supported us.

    It's the best happiness-!

    And all the balloons which floated high into the sky during the concert!

    Aarin saw those balloons as the dreams and hopes of the staff who prepared every single one

    And all the Mononofu around the country

    And us... flying into the Kokuritsu sky!

    She'll never forget it.

    She hopes it'll get edited into video soon \(^o^)/

    And then, she'll watch it endlessly!

    Everyone, thank you so much (`・ω・´)

    Sorry she totally rambled on today \(°∀° )/

    Moving on to the 2 days of summer at Nissan!
    It's time to start running again---!

    Look forward to seeing a newly-revealed us!

    Here are some off-shots from the filming of the opening movie at Kokuritsu-!



    We got to leave our signatures on the roof of the "from Chubu" building ヾ(*・ω・*)ノ

    Aarin was the first to sign, and she did a big one,
    which created a whole storm of "Ehhh- Why did you sign there-?"! (laugh)

    Well, maybe that "Danger, no climbing" sign
    is a little too off-putting (laugh)

    But Aarin felt that it was the best place for us- (laugh)

    Well, in the end
    everyone said that they were glad we chose this spot
    so it's all alright! (°▽°)




    Will our next event
    be the AE event-?

    3days at Seibu Dome!

    It was announced recently, without any of us noticing! (laugh)

    That's really awesome too! (`・ω・´)

    3days? (laugh)

    So happy---- \( *´ω`* )/

    How will it turn out-?

    Everyone going for AE,
    look forward to seeing us- \(^o^)/

    Who played a prank on Oden-kun and Tamago-chan, on Aarin's phone---!! (laugh)

    Why did you do it--? (laugh)

    Taking off Tamago-chan's dress
    And putting it on Oden-kun--- (laugh)


    Furu-chan, seriously! (laugh)

    Aarin watched
    "Konya mo nama de Sada Masashi" at home!

    But, well-
    She did watch part of it...

    Before she fell asleep. (laugh)

    Nooo-, the other 4 members will be angry at Aarin--. (laugh)

    ...Sorry for falling asleep image

    Thank you for standing in as Momoclo's pink,
    and wrapping a pink towel around your mike stand! image

    And for adding pink into the 5-colored drawing (*∩ω∩)

    Aarin was really happy!!

    Thank you.

    And to all the Mononofu,
    and the Squishy-nofu who wore pink despite Aarin's absence
    Thank you! (`・ω・´)

    Aarin heard from Mama that everyone cheered for Aarin as well \(^o^)/

    Aarin wasshoi!!! (laugh)

    And thank you to all the members
    for helping to explain why pink couldn't be there! (laugh)


    Aarin will get to go soon too, just a little bit more
    18! 18!

    image Sasaki Ayaka image

    1. Squishy-nofu or "puninofu" is a term used to describe Aarin fans.
    2. Japanese artistes under the age of 18 are not allowed to work after a certain timing as they are considered children and are not to be overworked.

    Sasaki Ayaka: ☆3 years. This is Aarin.☆
    Posted on 2014-04-11 01:29:19

    About 3 years ago…

    Momoiro Clover became Momoiro Clover Z.

    Has it really been 3 years?
    Or rather, has it only been 3 years-? (laugh)

    It seems like such a short period of time,
    but because everyone has always——– stayed with us since Z was formed,
    it feels as if so much had happened. (laugh)

    3 years ago, at this time,
    When we were about to become Z… We were all totally against the name change- \(°∀° )/ (laugh)

    Thinking about it now, why were the 5 of us so against the idea? (laugh)

    Maybe because we hadn’t known how good it would feel
    to say “Z——–!” together with everyone? (laugh)

    Aarin herself forgot that today’s the 3rd year anniversary. (laugh)

    It was only because she met with Yama-chan,
    who reminded her of it (-^艸^-) (laugh)

    And then,
    everyone’s comments served as good reminders too!

    Thank you image

    Anyway, it seems like this 3rd year anniversary
    would go uncelebrated, since today is almost over (´・ω・`) (laugh)

    Oh well, we’re still Momoiro Clover Z. (laugh)

    We’ll get lots of chances to celebrate “Momoiro Clover Z”‘s birthday in the years to come

    So let’s postpone the celebrations
    to next year! (・∀・) (laugh)


    We’ve grown up together with everyone image

    From now on
    We are Momoiro Clover Z…
    I am Aarin image

    Please support us!!!
