RTG 2014 ~Be ambitious, Memorial Summit~

Well, finally, It’s time to start “The Road to Graduation 2014 ~Be ambitious, Memorial Summit~” at O-EAST 😀 ♥❤ We began to have all-standing concerts when Su-chan was the president because of her hope to ‘feel the audience closer’♪ The graduation ceremony (concert) will be all-seated, so, today, let’s have a blast! Have Fun together!!!!

Now, for the people who can’t come to the concert, today’s diary is a ‘MOA Photo Gallery’ after a long while♪ This is the last ‘MOA Photo Gallery’ (pay homage to a museum). 【There is a famouse museum in Japan】So, I picked many kind of photos of members♥❤

We had already showed too funny faces at LoGiRL…so we are afraid of nothing now. lol
Please enjoy MOA Photo Gallery till the concert begins!!





Sakura Gakuin students’ diary 20150320 Moa Kikuchi: Senpai

Good mornooning♥ It’s Moa. 🙂

My last open-class ended. I feel somewhat hurt inside. In the class ‘Archaeology of Songs’, each member pick a song, study about the song by herself, present any findings and lastly, sing the song a cappella!!

I had prepared my presentation while visualizing what I hope to send to you. So, I could make my presentation looking at your face closely.
If you got what Moa wanted to send — even a little bit of it — I am happy♥♥ I believe my kouhais got it!!
And, Moa will treasure what I’ve got from kouhais forever. Thank you so much♥ 🙂
As of my singing a cappella….

I suddenly became really nervous, and started singing to find myself a bit off-key. I gradually adjusted and could sing exhilaratingly. But it was not a satisfactory performance. I felt frustrated thinking ‘Oh, If I could have sung once more, I surely could have sung better…’ But I know it’s an afterthought.
We have only one chance to play in each open-class. We can’t play one concert again! I realized again the importance of doing my very best with strong will in each single occasion, If I don’t want to feel unsatisfactory. Every one of members felt that, didn’t you? In the last two chances to play, let’s do our best and show everything we’ve learned till now!! Let’s send our whole hearts♥

【Kikuchi Moa and Muto Ayami】
【Kikuchi Moa and Muto Ayami December, 2010’】

Today, I want to write about my three senpais, three former presidents of student council, who taught important things to Moa and current members.
✿Muto Ayami-chan (‘One-tan’) 【=’Big Sis’. It’s not usually used saying. Usually, we say ‘Onee-chan’ and its broken form ‘Onee-tan’. ‘One-tan’ is still more broken, and thus has more intimate feeling. Please read it like the first 2 syllables of ‘honest’+’tan’】

She has been always walking one or two steps (or more?) ahead of Moa, and has kept paving the way for kouhais. She is a hard worker, putting her all into her work. I can’t help but respect One-tan.

‘Enjoy yourself from your heart, that surely will make fans enjoy the show’, One-tan told us several times. One-tan put much love in her doing and made us delighted♥ She is so short, and so energetic!! Regulations or customs can’t stop her doing more than desired. Her sending MUCH LOVE to fans make Moa think it important to put love in my doing♪
✿Nakamoto Suzuka-chan (Suu-chan)

【Kikuchi Moa and Nakamoto Suzuka】
【Kikuchi Moa and Nakamoto Suzuka April, 2012】

Suu-chan is Moa’s comrade. A fellow-fighter always being next to me!!!
After the Festival of 2014nendo, Moa had a serious problem. Suu-chan, as the president, had have the same problem and told me her thought and feeling at that time. That gave me power. It’s hard to stick to the ideal, and such attitude sometimes is not accepted. But, in the end, everything changes into good memories. So, take it easy and do what you think the best. Such words of Suu-chan made me relaxed — ‘Suu-chan also had the problem’♥
And Suu-chan also taught me the importance to send a song with heart♫
✿Horiuchi Marina-chan (Marina-chan, or Marippe)

Horiuchi Marina and Kikuchi
【Horiuchi Marina and Kikuchi Moa February, 2012】

Marina-chan is a bosom friend of Moa.
We are not of an age, but we are alike in way of thinking or taste, and have been having a LOT of talk. ‘Ideal and reality’, ‘What we want to send’, our dreams, anime things, and so on. We can talk on anything. We can share sadness and joy. By talking to Marina-chan, I feel as if a cloudy sky is cleared up! It’s fun! At first, Marina-chan was quiet. But she tried to express herself in order to send the importance of kizuna【bond】. Such Marina-chan was so adorable♥ We are talking that we hope to do something together and send ‘glitter’ one day…..I believe it surely will come true♪

This time, I’ve wrote about former presidents only. But also other graduates sent us several things. We appriciate everything senpais have left for us and will complete our Sakura Gakuin!!
Of course I love graduates, but current Sakura Gakuin is more important for Moa. Let’s show 10 of us is the very best♪
I just hope to send you — Sakura Gakuin NOW!

Title: JaJaJah〜n! 【=Ta-dah!】

Good mornooning❤ It’s Moa.
This year’s our first show “The Road to Graduation 2014 〜Happy Valentine〜” ended. Thank you very much for coming!!
I know there are many people who wanted to come but unfortunately couldn’t…..we always play each one of shows imagining every Fukei-sans were with us. Our days in 2014nendo are numbered and I hope we can make our hearts into one in the remaining days!

There was a merch of the concert “Turning into a club-member” photo-set. At the shooting of th photo-set, we Sakura members were all hyped. Because…..oh, can’t you see the reason?? It’s too apparent! We could wear the club-costume which we usually can’t wear, and we could play a role of a club-member we don’t belong to♪♫

We didn’t know who plays which club member untill the morning of the shooting. We knew it seeing a script when we enterd the shooting studio. We could play our role in all seriousness and it was so fun♥❤

Moa played not only a club member but also…Mori-sensei!
Fukei-sans, did you guess correctly who played Mori-sensei’s role? 【On the official Sakura Gakuin web site, the sample photo of the merch was pixelized and we couldn’t see who played which role untill the day of the concert】

For those who have not seen the photo-set, I show you my personal snapshot!!!!!!

It’s not MOri-sensei, But MOa-sensei!! 😀
Hehehe❤ Looks like him? 😀
Sakura members praised me saying ‘A dead ringer!!’♫
Cherish students the most☆ It was Moa.

Title: Hairstyle

❤Ufufu…♥❤It’s Moa…ufufu♥❤….ufufufufu♥❤♥ 【onomatopoeia for giggling. hehehe?】


I had a happy moment…but I suspect I can announce it now. So, for now, I just tell you it was so fun. lol
Let me see…..How many more times can I write this diary?!

I have a lot to tell you. But I think I can’t write everything till my graduation. The more I write, the more I want to tell you, I want to send you, I want to let you know.
I don’t know how many more times I can write this diary, but I want to send as far as I can. Please bear with me❤
Please look this photo.
How do you think about her??

When a hairstylist set my hair in this style, I thought “Wow! Now I look like Airi-chan♥” 【Suzuki Airi of C-ute】
I’m sorry for it, to fans of Airi-chan.

But…in this hairstyle, I thought I look alike Airi-chan a little, and it made me happy♥ Please forgive me for enjoying this small happiness!
To be honest, I would like to show you Moa in this hairstyle at a stage of Sakura Gakuin. But, our hairstyles are basically decided by our teachers for us!! We dance wildly at the stage and our hairstyle must be easy to dance with. But, I think this hairstyle is not bad for dancing. Dear teachers, please put it into one of possible hairstyles of me for a concert.
I hope it will come true till my graduation.

Girls want to have their hair in cute, their favorite styles!! Female Fukei-sans can understand my feeling, can’t you? I just love cute things. I love being cute♥♥
I watched a TV commercial of ‘XY’ in which Hirose Suzu-chan (the following poster girl of XY after Matsui Airi-chan) is crying. Crying Suzu-chan made my eyes ♥heart-shaped♥. Too cute! After all, I just feel happy to see her kawaii-ness!

【XY is a wedding-information magazine. The crying-Suzu CM [2] 】
I also love to see Hirose Suzu-chan on drama ‘Gakkou no Kaidan’【Stairs of a school】every week♥
I usually can’t watch the programs in real time. But I never miss to record and watch them♪
As the same president of student council,【Hirose Suzu play an act of the president of student council on the drama】, I watch the drama thinking ‘If I were her”–how I can persuade teachers or other students to do something, how I can climb a step to improve our school. ….And how I can send what I want to send in the last two months. I will try my best!!
Someone may think Moa being so naive that dramas or animes made me move deeply. BUT! The cute things are cute♥ Having fun is fun!!! I love to see my loving things♥ My favorite things give me power!!

I can’t dislike such naive, pure and simple me. I want to be such Moa forever♥ For sure, I also love merry, funny things!!! I want to show you many kind of expressions of me♪♫
Drive yourself forward without fear, Moa!!!

P.S. I also love to eat, as always. I will eat without fear. lol

Moa new diary: Aiko and Megu (translation)

[Moa new diary 2014-11-25]


Title: Aiko and Megu

Good mornooning It’s Moa.
We came back safely to Japan finishing New York and London concerts!!
This time again, Moa could have wonderful times. I’m very thankful for everything
While we went to extracurricullar activity, there were a three-day weekend in Japan. And unusually, there were no Sakura activity in the weekend. So, Sakura members could have time to do something they wanted, or could have rest. Good for them! Moa feels we need some me-time — playing with friends, doing hobbies, studying and doing nothing but rest — to improve ourselves!!
THEREFORE…Please give us some holidays again. lol


Well, this time Moa write about Aiko & Megu!!
Like MoaYui in Sakura Gakuin, or Yuimetal & Moametal in BABYMETAL, Aiko and Megu sometimes are grouped into one pair.

Moa and Yui joined Sakura at the same time and are the same age. So, we have been looked as a pair or have been compared our differences so often. Moa sometimes wondered why so many people didn’t look Moa as a single person. Moa hated to be regarded as a pair when Moa was 1st grade in middle school and said by teachers and a make-up artist to be “chuunibyou”. lol

【Chuunibyou (中二病), or “Middle-school 2nd Year Syndrome”, is a colloquial and rather derisive term in Japan which describes a person at the age of fourteen would either act like a know-it-all adult, or thinks they have special powers no one else has. Some would even go as far as being obnoxious, arrogant, and often look down on adults or older people. This way of thinking or acting is mostly seen in teenagers during adolescence, however there are people who still act like this even after reaching adulthood.
Chuunibyou uses the word “病” for “syndrome” or “disease” but it does not actually relate to any medical condition or mental disorder. It can also be written as 厨二病 in Japanese, where “厨” means “-fag” in net slang. In English it is often abbreviated as chuu2. (– from pixiv dictionary)】

Aiko and Megu are not in the state of chuunibyou yet. They make a lot of noise and have many quarrels — how vigorous and boisterous they are!

Moa also had been said by elder members “Moa is so vigourous♪” or “Moa, you are really free spirit♫”. But, Moa feel they have more energy than Moa had in those days!!

Both Aiko and Megu are smart. They are good in study in school. And , if you look at them one by one, their personalities are different.
Aiko is straightforward, and is like a cute puppy Megu is generous and easygoing.
But, when they are together, Moa feels they are similar in many characters. It’s mysterious!!


Aiko joined Sakura one year earlier than Megu. And Aiko ‘put on a senpai-air’ to Megu【means Aiko act like a senpai–like a boss】. Aiko put on a senpai-air even to Sara –Sara is a year older than Aiko! lol Aiko is very willing to teach something to kouhais(=juniors, in this context, members who joined Sakura later). It’s fun to see ‘Teacher Aiko’ make a mistake or, try to teach but Aiko herself can’t do it.
Most of Sakura girls have similar experiences (try to teach and fail. or vice versa) and seeing such Aiko make us smile. Aiko is faithful. Aiko comes all the way from Kagoshima and it must be very tough, but she is always positive and cheerful. And Moa love Aiko sing!! I’m really looking forward to seeing Aiko’s improvement♫

Megu changes completely on the stage!! Megu can sense what is expected from her and can respond quickly.
The other day, Megu sent Moa an E-mail. It said “Moa-chan, do you have anything you can’t do well and don’t know what to do?” When Moa was in elementary school, there was nothing which bother me as for the Sakura works. Moa had been acting as Moa liked, wondering nothing, just enjoying the works. But Megu is already thinking more than just enjoying herself!! Megu is thinkng how to send our love to Fukei-sans In the E-mail, Megu also said, “Megu is likely to be too greedy on the stage…How can I act more naturally”
…OMG, Megu is extraoridinary!! Moa respect Megu who can think over and can point out her problem by herself
Moa replied to the E-mail “While Megu is in elementary school, you can enjoy yourself freely! But Megu is thinking how to improve yourself. Well done Megu” Megu is full of spirit to entertain people and try to do very best on the stage. How adorable Megu is!


On open school events the other day, in which Aiko and Megu were separated to other class. And Aiko said “Without Megu, I feel something is missing…” Soooo cute Aiko is!! They are a pair after all!!
♪The two of us have the faces of rivals and close friends♪
Aiko and Megu…they are in really good relations, Moa think
Maybe, they will grow up bigger than MoaYui. (or already they are?)

Now, Moa think of the name of the (would be)unit!

Aiko愛子 and Megumi愛 make “Love×2” 【愛 means Love】
Call them “LoveLove” Doesn’t it sound good? (self-praise)
Or…”Megu ri Ai” 【Meguriai means ‘meeting with long-separated beloved one’ or ‘meeting with the one having been seeking’ 】
Ah…this sounds like enka. lol 【enka is a Japanese traditional love-ballads】
Fukei-sans, Please cherish Aiko and Megu’s growth with Moa.
