    Saturday was the 5th stop of the tour, Kobe, at the World Memorial Hall. It's the biggest location apart from Seibu Dome.

    For her solo she stood above the score board, 30m up from the floor [I presume she means the one above the stage, not suspended in the center]. Unfortunately she has no pictures.

    The venue is almost 30 years old but they told her this was the first time it was used that way. Yay!

    "I'd like if singing above screens became a thing now :D"

    The last [hawt] picture is her civvies of the day. In her mind it looks like a mermaid. Various staff members complimented it.

    In the beginning I didn't really pay much attention to A-rin as well, since the princess-like character is quite common among other idols but after a while she did grew on me the more i watch their shows. Her family relationship is just... unique and interesting. Plus she's pretty good in her MC skills too.

    But the song Datte~ A-rin nandamon just blew my mind away. /jump That's is just one level higher than anything else I have ever seen. It's just so freaking adorable and the call chants are just so unique!

    Yesterday she wrote about being on Folk Village:

    I got to sing Yamaguchi Momoe's Akizakura. I was very excited when I learned about that. I'm really sorry that I was so out of key despite that.

    I know it was a thousand years too early for me, but I'm also glad I got to try...

    Even so, making such a hash of the actual performance was for lack of practice.

    I thank Mr. Sakazaki for being nice about it and everybody for listening to the end. That made me really happy.

    All the more reason for me to change. I will practice a lot more.

    yeah, she's so out of key when performing that song. But she's good when singing Hashire at the beginning. Lack or practice + nervous. Even Kanako missed the timing.

    At YokoAri Panorama the stage was symmetrical so they had trouble orienting themselves, especially in the dark, like during their own glowstick waving in Hashire. Aarin got the idea that while the whole room will be full of glowsticks, the left center will have a dark spot where the audio engineers put up their consoles. This became the reference point. The middle guy just can't get over how awesome her thinking was.

    Compared to what? I don't know how many they tape in one go.

    Doesn't look any different to me, but the otome sensou costumes are pretty unforgiving if you pull the skirt higher, e.g. after sitting.

    Ahrin is probably my least favorite member, but that doesn't mean I don't like her. I simply don't care for her princess persona and cutesy singing style. When she steps out of her "idol" character she's pretty nice with a beautiful rich voice. She also has a lot of self-confidence. I watched some videos of her in her pre-MomoClo years and even at age 10 or 11 she was already "Ahrin dayoo!" For a girl who is now just barely in her late teens I admire the total command she has over a large audience of primarily older men all shouting her name.

    She seems to be turning into a big art lover. Her latest blog mentions a couple of museum exhibitions she visited this year. Google made its usual mess of the translation, but this line made perfect sense to me:

    "The moment I saw, I drank the breath."

    This upon viewing Vermeer's "Girl With A Pearl Earring." That painting had the same effect on me.

    I'm not sure what that effect would be. The correct translation is "took my breath away".

    Come on asan, lighten up a little and use your imagination. That's exactly the effect I mean, and I knew that was what Ahrin meant. "I drank the breath" may be a poor translation, but with a little poetic application it captures the feeling quite vividly. But I view the world artistically rather than literally anyway, so something like this would catch my attention. Anyway, never mind that, it's nice to learn that Ahrin has such an interest in art.

    Sorry, but I'm at that stage where you notice how much badly translated Japanese is on the internet but not yet beyond caring.

    A long interview of A-rin is placed in the released magazine next week.
    「力が足りてないから理想のレベルを落とすんじゃなくて、
    揺るがない理想に向かって、進んでいかなくちゃいけない」
