November ended before I knew it…
The end of the year is within sight.

Recently, on my days off, I polish my mirror and wipe the floor without conscious thoughts and feel a sense of accomplishment. And play games.
Pikavee! Since Karin-chan bought the Pika version (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu version), I bought the Vee version. It’s been a while since I played Pokemon. Nostalgic to see the Kanto Region.

I’ve dispatched the humidifier in my bedroom, changed my pajamas from t-shirt to sweatshirt and sweatpants, raised the temperature of my bath water a little, and bought heat packs in bulk, so my winter preparation is perfect!
Let’s do our best to not catch a cold!

Thank you for commenting on my previous blog post!
When I first thought about reading the comments, I was surprised by the amount of comments there were. (LOL)
There were various kinds of comments, and especially saw a lot of comments such as “thank you” and “grateful”. When I saw such comments, I felt happy from the bottom of my heart and felt good that I worked up to this point.
I’m the one that should be grateful…
I can’t help but feel sad when I think about graduating, so I try not think about it as much as I can as I continue working these days (^o^)✨

Graduating will be a big juncture,
but I’ll do my best in the hope that you will continue to support me!

The KYOTO NIPPON FESTIVAL is in progress at Kyōto Kitano Tenmangū-san!
The members did various collabs (at the festival).

On the day of Waka’s talk event, I checked it out with Manatsu. With a selfie stick in hand, we slowly and casually walked around the area!
It was fun!

To those who can’t go, please check it out here.
To those who can go, please check it out! I love the fragrance of the shrines. It is very soothing.

Day by day, there are more and more
TV programs that I must give thanks to
that as I appear on them, I think to myself that this may be the last time.
Instead, in the future, I suppose there will be new things.
Lots of excitement to look forward to.


A god appears on the bottom of my foot.
This week we’ll have a concert in Shanghai~!
I’m looking forward to it.

See you later~ o(^o^)o

Nishino Nanase: Announcement

2018/09/20 20:00

It’s Autumnn~
It has been a while!
This is Nishino.

I know this is sudden, but there is something I want tell everyone…

Thank you very much for everyone’s support these 7 years or so.
I, Nishino Nanase, will graduate from Nogizaka46 after my activities in this year.
m(_ _)m

From age 17 to age 24, I have been with Nogizaka,
Met lots of people, experienced many emotions, and it feels like I started with an unfinished self and then was developed here.
I’m not a “finished” self and that’s not my goal either,
But things like
Wait, was I this competitive, or
I didn’t know I could get this excited, or
When was the last time I cried so hard? or
Oh, I regret that so much!
My mind and body were worked until I would get fatigued,
but I was able to discover a self that I didn’t know before.

When I think back starting from the days of the final audition, there are so, so many important
memories that I wouldn’t be able to mention them all.
It was super duper fun!!
I feel now that this has been the most brilliant and stimulating time that I’ve spent in my life.

The members and staff of course, but most of all everyone who has supported Nogizaka46 is the reason that I have been able to spend this kind of time.

Even though I’m weak, I was given confidence by everyone time and time again.
Thank you for all your thoughts from your comments, letters, and during the handshake events.
I’m truly thankful for everyone who oshi someone like me.
I was given the chance to grow. And that is also thanks to everyone’s support.
I think I’ve become just a little stronger. ( ・∇・)

Although I’m a little scared to leave this place that I love (being with Nogizaka),
it is something that I definitely have chosen.
Even after going on my own, I do want to continue in this line of work,
so I feel excited about what kind of things will happen in the future.
I wonder if there is anything that I have left undone…? I’ll think about that.

I’ve actually been discussing with management about my graduation for over a year now,
And today I’m finally announcing it to everyone.
I kept adding, deleting, and fixing this blog many times,
writing bit by bit.

My activities with Nogizaka will be up until the end of this year, but my graduation concert is planned to be held next year…!
It’s a bit of a different pattern, but I ask for your understanding.
Since I love concerts, I want everyone to have a great time… that’s how I would like to end my time with Nogizaka46.
Details like the time and location are still in the works.
It will be a while, but I would be happy if you would please look forward to it!

That’s all.

One more thing,
There have been several natural disasters in different parts of Japan this summer, and my heart aches each time I see it on the news.
Since I am just one person, I felt like there wasn’t anything that I could do to help, but the other day at
the Makuhari Nation-wide Handshake Event, Nogizaka46 asked for donations (to help the natural disasters victims).
Thank you for your cooperation!
I hope that we can be of some help.
I hope everyone can return to their normal lives.

I wish to express my heartfelt sympathy to all of the victims.

It’s already the 2nd half of the year, (time) flew by so quickly~
My wishdom teeth is slowly coming out, so it kinda hurts.
I carefully brush it to avoid getting cavities.

So pretty~

We’ve completed the Birthday Live without any problems, and next is the National Tour!
The reason we can do this every year as if it’s a tradition
is because of everyone who feels, “I want to go see a concert!” and turns up.
Thank you very much..
m(_ _)m

Jingū and Chichibunomiya
For 3 days, we sang, danced, and ran, plus we had to move between the 2 venues, so it was more tiring than the usual live concert.
But no one has ever held live concerts in 2 places at once before,
so I am happy that we were able to pull it off!

My personally designed towel, mine is green and evokes circuit board soldering?
It’s really easy to recognize. LOL
During the live concert, I thought, “Whoa, it’s easy to see it!”
My name towel, uchiwa (fan), photobook, koketani-kun, and etc…
Thank you very much for raising them! m(_ _)m

We’re doing the High School Quiz this year, too✨
It’s getting exciting〜
For the promotion, we tried a few problems, but it seme that my intelligence
is lowww! I couldn’t get anything right…
But the time spent thinking with everyone is fun.
Waiting for participants to apply o(・x・)/
Aspiration Remains


Mock-chicken rice, corn rice!

Lately, corn has appeared for the first time in my ranking of foods I like.
I used to eat it often when I was little, but eating it again, it really is delicious!
It’s especially delicious in this time of year, and I cooked it with the rice cooker I bought on the recent Nogichū. It’s from Balmuda-sama.
With the leftovers, I made onigiri the next day and brought it with me to work.

I think that makes it 12 posts?
I feel like I used the same lunch mat for every post. (LOL)

Since I don’t have any new pics, I’ll post some old ones that I like.

Kōchi (Prefecture)

Ishigakijima (Ishigaki Island)


For the 3rd pic, I totally looked for a picture showing just backs.
There are others that I also like, so I’ll post them some other time!

Make sure to take countermeasures against heat stroke o(・x・)/

Nishino Nanase is now 24 years old! Yay~
This year went by so fastt.
I’m happy for this birthday. Lots of people said “happy brithday” to me, and that makes me really happy.
Thank you very much!

As always, health is most important above all
and I hope I can do work that’s fulfilling
while keeping one’s time away from work and recharging yourself important.  I hope to spend my days like that.
I’ll keep doing my best! I look forward to what is aheadd~
Please continue to support me, now that I’m 24. ヽ(´▽`)/
A few days before my birthday, Marie-chan and I went on a date.
She had bought me a cake and
even gave me a present…!
I was suprised and was very happy. I was filled with happiness~. ✨

First Photobook
「Watashi No Koto」
I’m super happy that it seems like many people have gotten their hands on it.
I wonder which photoshoot and page did people enjoy? I’m curious..
Hotel Hatoya was lovelyy.

I went to Chō Kukki Land neoneo
wih Marika~
They added more exhibits and goods!

Ambition Part…? (Her monthly food blog) I forgot…
There are 5 more remaining I think~?
I’m going at it at a super slow pace if I say so myself.  It’s been a year already. (LOL)

The top is a Pickled Salmon Bowl
Just need to pickle it from the night before.  So simple.
I make this a lot.
I used mentsuyu, sesame oil, and ground pepper.

The bottom one is Meat Sauce Pasta.
It was my first time making the sauce from scratch. I don’t have a deep pot, so I cut the pasta short and boil it in a frying pan.
It was delicious.

At the national handshake event at Makuhari and the individual handshake event at Nagoya.

I received flowers and made a speech.  A cute Aloha shirt!
There were various illustrations and decorations along the lanes.
I enjoyed seeing them ✨
I’m truly grateful (^人^)☆

There were many people who wore the Doiya-san pin attached to non-no magazine.  I see, that sort of strategy exists, I thought (LOL).

It has been decided that I will be releasing a photobook m(__)m
「Watashi No Koto」
The photoshoot was in Morocco~
and at Hatoya Hotel it Itō.
“I wonder if it will be good. I wonder if people will want to see it,” is what I’m feeling, but if you’d like to, please give it a look…
No, please do take a look!
Around the time I began as a Non-No model, I started writing a column called Nanaserufu as well, so those columns I wrote until now are all included.
It will go on sale on May 9th.

Biore UV Essential
I appeared in a sunscreen CM!
I’ve actually used this product from a long time ago, so I was really happy.
Oh! There are UV rays in the spring too, so everyone please do put on sunscreen.
It is light and comfortable to use.

I did a cover photoshoot for Mgirl №22,
Ninagawa Mika-san’s fashion magazine.
It was fun!
It was kinda different than the usual, so it felt fresh!
It will be on sale on April 24th.

I will be on a segment of the NHK comedy skit show LIFE called “Muro Machi.”
I was super nervous. I’m still having a hard time getting used to comedy skits. It’s hardd~
It was an honor to meet Koganehara-san!
It will air on April 6th.
Resolution 9 and 10 are still backed up…
I’ll do them at my own pace~

Today is the last episode of Video Girl Ai!
Ai’s playback time is coming to an end…
By all means, please watch it m(__)m
By the way, the design for my individual towel merchandise borrows from the design of the script for Video Girl Ai.
Soldering! Circuit board!

Synchronicity is a super good song
The choreography is difficult, but it is fun dancing to it!
The coupling song is something that I have always wished for, a 1st gen song! So happy.
Please look forward to it~
This is a personal affair, but my beloved dog, Mugita, has passed away.
Thank you for the 18 years.
He was like my little brother, always bringing me comfort. I still feel like he will be there
whenever I go back to my family’s home.
I wonder if Mugi was happy?
While he’s no longer physically here, I think he will be watching over my family.
As I am typed this out, I reminisced and felt sad and had a hard time continuing. I’m still kinda feeling it so I’ll stop here.
Just wanted to make the announcement.
Please continue to support me this April!

Lovely chameleon!!
The game Human: Fall Flat is fun (It took me a while to get used to the controls)
I also gotta go play MonHan soonn.

The members are increasingly getting more individual work, so we don’t have many opportunities to get together.
That’s why I enjoy the time we casually chat together in the dressing room~
Like when we get excited talking about the snacks that are gifted to us
or the magazine we find there or TV dramas we’re watching
I gotta cherish those moments.
A movie that when I was little I had vague memory of and never knew much about but that I had always wanted to see
I saw that movie, Onmyōji.
Abe no Seimei!! was soo cool!!!
I can’t wait to see part Ⅱ o(^o^)o

Ambitions 7 and 8

Kimchi Nabe (Hotpot)
I made the soup myself.
I put in a lot of doubanjiang.

The stuffing is kansai-style.
I am completely satisfied with the results~

Speaking of yellow, Ai-chan!
Video Girl Ai
Three episodes have already been broadcasted.
Please watch and enjoy how the story progresses!


I dreamt that I was a bear and was hunted by people, I woke up feeling really tired.
I ran away for a pretty long time, and
even through it was a in a dream, I was running away with my own will…
But I didn’t make it in the end~ it felt real~
It was scaryy.
I’ve had dreams like that for two days straight, so I want to dream about fun things now instead!

Happy New Year.

Peace Peace

This will be my 23rd time welcoming the new year, and I suppose the memories from last year will be deeply imprinted into my mind.
How great!!

In 2017,
work and non-work things were both fulfilling so I feel like I was able to live with peace of mind.
It was really a wonderful year.
I must give back these feelings of gratitude!
There were some times when I got worried about the future or felt things were tough but I was able to cherish those moments as well.
It’d be better if there are fewer of those times, this year. But it feelsl ike it’ll be fine!!

In the spring, I bruised my leg with the naginata.
In the summer, I sweat every year as always.
In the fall, I cut my hair.
In the winter, every day is massive consumption of adhesive heating pads.
Off the top of my head, that’s what I came to mind when I think of the four seasons. I thought I did a lot of other stuff, but…
It was always fun!
I’m excited to think of what kind of work I’ll be doing this year.


I’m on the cover and the opening page of TVbros-san!

Den’ei Shōjo VIDEOGIRL 2018
If you will, please do check it out on Saturday, Jan 13th at 12:20AM!!
We’ve already finished shooting all of it, so I’m looking forward to seeing the completed work myself \(^-^)/
I hope for your continued support this year.
It’s the year of the dog, so it’s my zodiac year!
I hope there will be many good things. I hope I can go on a trip. I hope I can eat delicious food.
I wish for good health.
Thank you very much.

Nishino Nanase: Month of Humidifying

2017/12/05 14:12

Unable to put it all together for a while, I was slow to update.
Are you doing well?~
I’m doing well!!

My schedule is so packed that every day seems to go by so quickly. But this feeling of hecticness in society in December, this feeling of the year end, has always made me feel excited and I love it…!!

When moving between locations, I play video games or listen to music as a breather.
Sometimes I bring my Switch to the location and play Mario Odyssey.
I tell everyone it’s my recommendation.

When I was tired and closed my eyes, before I realized it, my mouth was hanging open.
After I got out of the bath, I slept like a log.

You can count on me-chu!
We successfully completed the 2-day Tokyo Dome Concert!

It was a concert full~~ of emotions and
feelings of gratitude.
We were happy, excited, and a little sad.
Both what people in the audience felt and what the members felt was probaby different from what they were in the past…
As soon as the concert started I thought, “Uh oh, my eyes are watery!!”
There was a moment that I hope I won’t ever forget…
It was an amazing time.
Thank you very much.

This is the last time I get to do a concert with Marika and Himetan.
I am glad that I got to meet them and spend time together with them.
My beloved members.
Although this is the end,
I am glad I got to send them off with a smile! Congratulations!
I am playing the role of Amano Ai-chan in
the drama Video Girl Ai!!
We are filming every day.


I’m always worried about how hard dealing with masculine wordings and acting itself are but there are lots of things to learn
and the atmosphere on location is very good, so I’m having fun.
It will begin broadcasting next January.
Please look forward to it! ^ – ^
Aspiration Part 6
It’s not made from scratch,
but it was delicious, so here is the souvenir from Thailand that I got from Kazumin, grapow!
I don’t know if I will have time to cook anything in December,
but later I’ll properly make something, later… (LOL)
Going forward, I have shooting for the drama and will appear on lots of music programs,
so I’m a little worried about my stamina,
but I’ll do my best~ to show you some great things!!

Good evening~
It’s Nishino Nanase.
During Lion no Guu Touch’s Stacking Series… I feel like I won’t be able to top this.
I used up a few days’ worth of concentration on this!
Everyone, by all means, try it out!

Taken during Gaku Tabi with high school students from Kagawa Prefecture, preparing the mackerel with everyone.

During the Meiji Essel Supercup Sweets shooting, the roles of strawberry and custard.
Outside of work,
I went to Marika’s solo exhibition,
saw 3rd gen’s stage play,
went to Kukki’s, of Yasei Bakudan, “Super Kukki Land,”
went to a live concert by Spitz,
went out to eat with the other members,
went to an outlet with my family,
went on a walk for about an hour,
watched a movie at the theaters,
was so looking forward to Mario Odyssey that I restarted playing Paper Mario: Color Spash ←?

I’ve been able to have time to refresh myself between working.
I laze around at home a lot, too, but I think I’m more active in the fall and winter than the summer.
Aspiration Part 5
The pumpkin and ground chicken are on the sweet side and
the pea shoots wrapped with enokitake mushrooms are made spicy with chili oil and
with mushroom rice, it had a smooth taste.
The luncheon mat is always this one. (LOL)
Answering some questions:

● What songs do you usually listen to?
Every day, I listen to Spitz-san because it give me strength!

● What do you definitely want to do in the winter?
Eat hot pot and although I don’t know how to ski nor snowboard, I want to go to a ski slope.
A fur hat I got!
My ears are warm, too ヽ(;▽;)ノ

was released nationwide!

While playing Asahi, who puts her entire adolescence on naginata
and gives it her all, it made me think on how strong she is… and it gave me strength, too.
I hope students who are currently in extracurriculars will watch, and also think students who aren’t in extracurriculars will enjoy it, too..

I hope that the coolness and charm of naginata will be conveyed to many people!

We are doing stage greetings casually~.
Once we forgot to wear tabi (traditional socks) and so we all just went barefoot.

For those who watched Mezamashi TV, you’ll know this, 麻婆茄子*!

This month, I’ve been busy with movie promotions, recording the new single, and
other stuff that I can’t say and didn’t think I had any time! but on a
location shoot for Mezamashi TV, in the flow of conquering my dislike of eggplants I was able to make this.
The eggplant was delicious!
I’ve been talking about the movie a lot during stage greetings, but I also
want to watch it on the big screen once more.
I’ll go if I can \(^-^)/
