Yay. Both Yaguchi (as mentioned in a previous post) and Mano have official blogs. Yay. Both blogs are being translated by Hello-Online. Yaguchi’s first batch of entries is here. She’s been in Iceland for a tv special that is to be aired in Japan on January 2nd. What’s more is she’s filming it with Nacchi. Yaguchi’s blog has some great pics and is a cute read. Pity the pictures get smaller after the first few days.
Meanwhile the Mano blog is translated here. She talks of promo campaigns, Disneyland Tokyo and rehearsals. Again there are cute, if a bit too small, photos.
This year has been pretty interesting for H!P fans in the west. As well as starting to see tracks appear on foreign iTunes sites and having two H!P members release a cd in America (albeit one not on the H!P label) we have also had quite a few blogs spring up. Yuko, Ogawa, Yaguchi and now Mano. I’d love to see Nacchi do one next. 😀 It’s good to read their (brief) thoughts on various things but add to that the pictures and these blogs are great. You get a sense of the working life of these people as well a a glimpse into their domestic lives. I hope this blogging trend continues to catch on and we get more of our favourite Japanese singers doing them.
