It’s Matsumura Sayuri!
Today is 2017, August 27
I am now 25 years old!!!
Can’t believe that
I’m 25 years old
but it actually happened just like that.
Recently, I have been performing in stage plays on my own
and was the center of a coupling song.
There are many things that I have to be thankful for and
I am living each day to the fullest.
That’s a picture from the stage play!
My character name is Kuriko-chan and I’m in charge
of the bass in a girl band!
There were no other (Nogizaka46) members in the play so I was nervous,
But the stage was filled with the atmosphere of my hometown, Osaka,
so it was lots of fun!
In addition to playing the bass, I had a solo singing part, too.
I was able to experience a lot of things that probably can only be experienced in this stage play~~
and spent everyday digesting it all.
Kuriko-chan is a girl with a Kansai dialect,
but since I’ve been practicing standard Japanese since I joined Nogizaka,
I had a suprisingly hard time with the lines in the Kansai dialect.
And the bass.
I feel like the position of bass in a girl band
fits well with my personality.
I have come to love the sound of the bass.
In 『Clione no Akari』,
an anime currently on the air,
I’m the voice actress for the heroine, Minori-chan.
I am really happy to be involved with an anime that I love,
but I’m worried that I may not have fully brought the character of Minori-chan to life
because of my lack of skill.
I did many, many takes with the staff-san.
Like the original illustrated book,
the anime is a very heartful and wonderful story.
The anime also has an original arc.
I am thankful for this wonderful opportunity and
would like to watch over Minori-chan
with everyone until the end.
Thank you!

A picture from the tour!
We are going to many towns this year, too!
The summer tour has become an annual event,
but no matter how many times we do it,
it still feels fresh and I still get surprised by everyone’s passion!
I am happy that many people came
this year as well!
I will take in the sounds and lights so as not to take the encounters I have had for granted and will give it my all until the end!
Tomorrow is a day to be grateful as well, since
it’s the nationwide handshake event in Nagoya!
Since I joined Nogizaka46,
I was able to meet and talk to many people,
but I’ve recently really felt how
all of this isn’t so ordinary~~
It’s an amazing~~ thing that I’ve met the current members and of course the members who have graduated,
and I keep that thought with me as I spend another normal day with nothing special today with the other members.
Days like this are bliss.
I’m really glad to have met the other members, staff-san, and all of my fans.
I may not be very idol-like, but
I’m thankful to everyone who supports me
and I wish happiness for everyone out there, and
I hope to spend every day with those feelings.
There are lots of thing I want to do in my life. (LOL)
Ah. Manatsu-san.
Why is it that tears come out when
I listen to 『Hito Natsu no Nagasa Yori…』 lately?
Odaiba Minna no YUME-TAIRIKU (Everyone’s Odaiba Dream World)
was fun, too~~
Going to YUME-TAIRIKU might have been
the one summer-y thing I did.

I’m bad at writing birthday blogs,
so the content is a mess,
so I ask for your understanding…
I’ll end it with a picture
of my beloved Kana-chan.
And so, I hope everyone has a
great birthday of mine.

When I get an injury, I immediately take a photo
I take another photo the next day as well
I want to see how it heals and changes, and it feels kind of precious because you can only see it as it happens!
But now it’s a bruise and won’t completely go away I’m sad (;o;)

Aspiration Part 3.
I felt like eating sweet and sour pork!
However, I’m still scared of frying by myself, so it’s a non-fried mock sweet and sour pork.
Why didn’t I buy green vegetables~
piment~ [green peppers]
(Luncheon mat bought at a Thai exhibit)

The meat was tender, the thickness of the gravy was nice, and it was really delicious…!!!
It made me eat a lot of rice to go with it ✨
Once again, I made a meat dish. (LOL)

I actually don’t like vinegar, so this time was my first time buying it.
It’s good for your health, so I hope to use it more from now on.

A procedure that I like to do is to prick and stab the meat with a fork before it’s cooked. That indescribable feeling…
I’m glad it came out well!
I’ll try to fry it properly some time in the future.
We are in the middle of the tour.
We finished the Nagoya performance two days ago!
The remaining ones are the three performances in Nīgata. It will take place in October, so there is some time until then.
I look forward to it. [in the Nagoya dialect.]
The LINE LIVEs for Asahinagu, that’s the height of noisy, excited prattling.
Only after live concerts!
This is the previous issue, where I did a photoshoot with me holding a naginata. I also did a talk with them on heroines, which is this issue’s theme.
I would never have guessed that I would be in SWITCH magazine. … I am delighted.

And currently on sale
the October issue of non-no, which I’m on the cover of. The theme is pink!
They took cute pictures of me with pink make up and pink clothes. This autumn’s trends, in addition to an adult-like mood, I think may be various shades of pink.
Everyone, please check it out ✨

Also, samuraiELO-san shot me for a solo cover,
and for street JACK, with Maiyan, the two of us!

All of us from the cast of Asahinagu are also appearing in a lot of other fashion magazines, TV magazines, movie books, etc!! I’m grateful.
Check them out~ (^o^)
That’s Maiyan’s finger!

Good Afternoon
This is sudden, but I’m going to write about songs that I’ve been listening to a lot recently.
This is really sudden, but…

Girlish Age (Ougra Yui-san)
Senpai。 (HoneyWorks meets TrySail-san)
Himitsu no Toilette (Ichinose Shiki, CV: Aihara Kotmi)
Manatsu Happening (Yui Kaori-san)
irodori (Amamiya Sora-san)

I put these 7 songs into a playlist and am always listening to them on repeat.
I also want to put Mr. Children-san’s songs into this playlist,
but it is on another device, so I can’t.
I want to put Mr. Children-san’s song onto the same device (as the songs in the playlist),
but there are a lot of songs, and I have choreography videos saved, so don’t have much space left, so I’m just gonna deal with it.
I’ll enjoy them separately.
I’m curious about the rubber band on the desk in the room.
BRODY will be released on August 23rd.
I did a photoshoot and an interview.
2nd Gen!

Good Afternoon.

It has become August.
Because I don’t like the strong sunlight and the heat, I wish that it will become cooler soon.
Although on my days off, I hardly leave my home so it doesn’t really matter that much.
And I won’t be the same age as Shiki-chan (a character from The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls) in this month so I don’t know what to feel about that.
・MARQUEE (music magazine), August 10th edition
Produced by Kawago-san!
It was really colorful, pop, cute and fun!
By all means check it out.

And, tonight at 24:00 HaZAP will air!
Please watch it~
