The Church blog seems to have been on hiatus for more than 2 years. But with a new author we hope to get this a bit more active again.
Hello everyone! I am bondskizuna and I'll be writing in this blog too from now on. I came to like Hello! Project back in 2008 but first I listened to pretty much only Morning Musume so Maasa didn't catch my eye until at around March 2011. I remember that day very clearly. While surfing through the internet I happened to find some photos from her photobook and her beauty was something extraordinary. I looked for more information of her and the rest is history. I hope to translate some of the main points from her blog texts and add them here. My Japanese is not that good so feel free to point out any mistakes!
A lot has happened in these 2 years. For example, Berryz Koubou and of course Maasa's first time in Europe, at Japan Expo on July this year. Also the unfortunate announcement of Berryz Koubou's indefinite hiatus.
Happy announcements have taken place too! Maasa has been announced to be a playing manager for Engeki Joshibu, Hello! Project's acting group.In the summer of 2014 she was the first and so far only Berryz Koubou member to get a driving license.She also revealed that she is an aunt to a 2 year old nephew, a son of her younger sister.
Let's hope that our precious Maasa stays in the spotlight even after the 3rd of March and we'll get an occasional peek at her : )
