Kago Ai's Return to Hello! Project

September 18, 2018




1: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

"My Partner," by Tsuji Nozomi





For the last two days, you've performed at Nakano Sun Plaza.


Your first Hello! Project concerts in 12 years.




Finally the time has come.


Unfortunately I couldn't participate this time, but Aibon, you're an incredibly precious friend to me, an irreplaceable partner in my life.


After I give birth, I want to stand on stage with you; it's my dream. Until then, I'll focus on what I have to do right now and give it my all, waiting for that day.



Welcome home.


The truth is, for my birthday party this year,

Aibon and her family were nice enough to come celebrate with me.


We'd been texting, but this was the first real reunion in a long time.



to see your daughter and my daughter playing happily together,

to see your son and my son playing happily together,


And our husbands hitting it off immediately...


It was such a strange feeling, 

but it made me so truly happy.


And coincidentally, we both were thinking about how much we wanted to do W again, so we said, "We'll definitely make it happen." It's a promise.


Everyone, on the day we stand on stage together again, please look after us warmly. It would make me so happy.



Welcome home

Welcome home

Welcome home~


Let's all cry in the 4ki LINE chat together"

2: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

My heart is warmed.


3: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Yesterday and today she updated her blog without saying anything about it, so I thought she was ignoring it.

The fact that Aibon came to her birthday was already common knowledge, though.


4: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

So they have a 4ki LINE, huh?


6: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It's like they're both two completely different people, LOL.


7: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       57: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       You can immediately tell which are Tsuji's fingers.


9: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I cried :'(


11: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


They're not twins, but they're like twins.

So it's Double You.


13: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I'd never once considered a W revival.

If it really came to fruition, my heart would collapse.


14: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

And the sun sets as the long battle ends.


15: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Life is wonderful.


17: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

       46: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Which one's Kago's husband?


              48: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


              Bottom-right of Kago.


              50: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


              The only adult with their face hidden.


19: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Unlike Musume, they could totally do W until they're both old and gray.


20: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Is that their daughters on the left? I want to see their faces.


21: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Welp, next up is Kamei.


23: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Is Kago's daughter really this big already?


26: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

What does she mean "welcome home"?

Wasn't it just this one time?


34: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I can't die until I've seen I WISH with the original members.


38: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

This is payback to Kazutoyo Koyabu, who flipped out when someone suggested they do a live with all the Golden Era members including Kago.


40: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Bring back Gomattou.


       43: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Does Matsuura have any desire to come out and do a public show?


41: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Kago's husband looks like he could be in EXILE or DA PUMP.


44: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

It's as if I WISH was written for exactly this concert.

It's only looking back now that I can understand the meaning of those lyrics and catch a glimpse of the perspective on life Terada [Tsunku] put into them.

Terada himself went through some tough times as well.


       45: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       Tsunku, sublimated after 18 years...


49: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Ahhhhhh~~~ the day has finally come, huh?

What a joyous occasion.


       51: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/


       For some reason, I'm scared.


53: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Kago-chan's husband looks pretty young.


55: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

What was the song they were gonna release before the scandal happened again?


56: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Apparently they'd finished an album.

Even though it's super late, they should still put it out.


65: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I think I'd cry if I saw them sing as W again.


67: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Is her current husband a good husband?


68: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

"W, W!" Is no one worried about Mika Todd too?


69: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Is there a revival with all three of them?


72: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Is it really safe to invite Kago's husband into her house?


73: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Ayaya didn't attend Rika-chan's wedding. She's the biggest barrier, it seems.


75: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

A few years ago she said she went to an exhibition for some fashion brand with Kago, so this isn't the first time she's referenced her, right?


77: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Seems like Tsuji really has a strong sense of duty.


78: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I cried.


79: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

The name "Noa" is from this one time when Tsuji and Kago were in the W dressing room and Kago just casually said, "If I have a kid, I'll take a character from each of our names and put them together to make their name."

And Tsuji actually kept that promise.


       85: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/



       As expected of Nonotan.


80: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

For real?


82: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Those two have really gone through a lot of ups and downs in their years. It figures.

I'm the same age as them, but while they were going through all this, I did absolutely nothing but make round trips between work and my house.


87: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

I wanna see W.


91: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

They're both like totally different people.


97: 名無し募集中。。。@\(^o^)/

Tsuji always writes like such a celebrity. Her sentences are so florid.

I'm sure if Kago stays in the entertainment industry, she'll become that refined, too.






Emi: In light of recent events with the 4ki, I'm at least glad Aibon's been publicly redeemed and seems to be doing well. Here's hoping it all works out okay somehow in the end.
