    Tsuji Nozomi Gives Birth (Now with Translation) (Update) 

    Tsuji Nozomi gave birth to her second child, a son, today at 1.32pm JST. The baby weighs 2.7kg, apparently exactly the same as what her daughter, Noa, weighed when born.

    Tsuji is ecstatic, and if you can read Japanese, you can read more on her blog. If there’s particular demand, I could just translate it for you all!

    Congratulations to Tsuji and her husband, Taiyou!

    Translation of Blog Entry


    On the 26th of December!

    At 1.32pm!

    I gave birth to a healthy 2.7kg baby boy.

    (2.7kg is exactly the same weight as Noa was when she was born.)

    That’s amazing, right?

    Labour pains began at around 12 noon, and after waiting, I finally met my little man.

    I’m very emotional and so happy right now. Little one, from my heart, thank you so much!

    I haven’t slept at all today, and not been able to eat either, I’m a really worn out mother! As for after the pregnancy, I was still in some pain and had to relax and take it easy.

    I’m so, so happy right now!

    For those who were rooting for me, thanks so much!

    I wanted to tell you all about this as soon as I could.

    I’d like to truly thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.

    Thank you,

    Tsuji Nozomi.

    (Just a quick 2minute translation!)

    [Update:] She called the baby Seia (青空), which means blue sky and has the same character (空) as Noa’s in it.

      It would be greatly appreciated if you would post a translation. I assume she speaks in some slang or a dialect so Google doesn’t do a very good translation.

      Also, might you know of any site that does a regular translation for her blog? Or have they all given up do to her rapid posting…

      7.3kg? That’s.. really much for a newborn baby. >U<;
      Are you sure you didn't mean 2.3kg, because that's what I read from another website. (:

      A translation would be very much appreciated, if you can find the time to do one! :)

      Thanks! It’s great to hear straight from Tsuji exactly how she felt about something so important.

      Of course we are all delighted for Tsuji and her hubby … and happy all is well … and wish them all much happiness

    Morning Musume OG Concert Tour Announced 

    Big news for all the fans of the Morning Musume OG.   It’s been announced that the members of the OG/M-Line will be having a concert tour throughout Japan.  The name of concert will be “Dream Morning Musume。Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai 〜Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei〜”.  All members of the OG are hopefully going to be performing with the exceptions of Konno Asami due to her broadcasting job. There will be a total of  8 concerts in the tour.  The final show of this event is expected on May 29 2011.

    This is huge news.  In fact, this is the first OG Concert Tour since the Elder Club Graduated from H!P.  I can’t wait to hear more about this upcoming concert.

      Tsuji Nozomi is listed to perform in the tour. Konno isn’t because she is most likely leaving UFA as per the indication of several Memorial Fanclub goods.

    • Adam 7:16 pm on 2010-12-16 Permalink | Reply

      Yup, it seems Tsuji will be able to perform, she’s gonna have to recover from her pregnancy quick though! I love Tsuji, so yay.

      As for Konno, I assume she has training to do for her newscaster position on NHK.

    Tsuji Nozomi Opens Blog 


    Former W member Tsuji Nozomi finally returns with the opening of her blog today! It’s been a long time since she’s had any sort of content with fans and I must say I’m pleased to see something from her – before her shock marriage / pregnancy she was my favourite Hello! Project member.

    I’m not getting my hopes up for any sort of release – I think she’s just back in time for the end of the Elder Club.

    None the less it’s good to see her – she’s looking cuter than ever!

      I’m really happy too!
      She is my ultimate favorite. :D

      Yayyyyyyyy. I’m hoping she’s going to be active in being a singer.

    • Puffy Love 5:01 am on 2009-01-31 Permalink | Reply

      That’s some quick reporting. Then again, this is already creating a buzz.

      I hear she has over 1,000 people signed up to her blog already.

      Let’s hope her blog climbs the blog rankings!

    Hello! Project News Round-Up 

    Well, I go to work for 7 hours and come home and a whole lot of stuff seems to have gone down in Hello! Project land!

    Firstly, Mano Erina will release her debut indie single on 2008-06-29 (next Sunday), at a handshake event, the single will retail for 800Yen. Shortly after this event the single will be available to fan-club members and sold through a few online retailers to Japan only customers so that means if you want it, you’re going to have to ask a friend in Japan to get it for you or try your luck with auction websites. The single will be called Mano Piano and will feature Mano accompanying herself on piano, a Hello! Project first I believe! Pictured above is the single cover.

    In other news, Iida Kaori will return to show business from her maternity leave on July 7th to take part in an environmental event, I’m not sure if she’ll be resuming full activities after this but this her first public appearance since giving birth.

    Yajima Maimi will have her own radio show entitled C-ute Yajima Maimi no I My Me <3 Maimi~ on FM PORT from 23:00 – 00:00 JST.

    Tsuji Nozmi made an appearance at Nakazawa Yuko’s recent birthday concert which apparently surprised Yuko herself, Tsuji sang happy birthday and presented Nakazawa with a cake which and then proceeded to cheekily blow the candles out. This is also Tsuji’s first public appearance since giving birth.

    The rumors of Goto Maki signing with Avex have intensified with UFA removing Goto’s profile from their artist database and several newspapers reporting that the official announcement of Goto’s contract with Avex will be made on 2008-06-22. Time will tell. Edit: Just read this topic, the news is too fast and too exciting for me to update constantly!!

    • HamHam 1:00 am on 2008-06-20 Permalink | Reply

      i wonder if Tsuji will return soon! i hope she duz becuz she iz my fav singer!!!!! =)

    • neospaceblue 6:27 am on 2008-06-20 Permalink | Reply

      Ogawa, Iida, Tsuji and Goto returning within a month. I was expecting them to come back soon, but not this fast.

    Tsuji Nozomi’s first and speculatively last single is released today, a cover of an older Morning Musume single. It will be the theme to the anime that she used to star in.

    A movie that features Abe Natsumi is also released today, I haven’t actually heard of the movie myself but if it features Nacchi, it might be worth a look.

    UFA Make it Official 

    There is now a notice on the Hello! Project website about Tsuji Nozomi’s marriage and pregnancy, I’ve translated the article but realised that it’s already been done…twice so you’ll have probably read that else where. Instead…I’ll give my opinion on the situation (Woo for you).

    In short, I think UFA and Hello! Project are dealing with this whole “incident” very well. In fact, a little too well. I think it’s most likely been negotiated that Tsuji will part from Hello! Project on good terms and thus not harm any possible future works, which are unlikely now I have to say. Although it has not been announced she is leaving, she won’t be performing pregnant will she? Plus, stress isn’t good for the child in the womb, or so I hear.

    I think it would be nice if Tsuji and Hello! Project parted ways nicely, but I very much doubt UFA are “happy for her.” On the contrary, I suspect they’re pretty peeved, what with Tsuji’s solo single just about to be released and her role in an anime just starting. Sure they can replace her, but that usually doesn’t happen in Japanese anime, at least not permanently and so quickly.

    I’m pretty sad to see Gyaruru become Gyagonegone. I think they’d have made a nice little unit, even if for only one single. I don’t know if they’ll replace Tsuji, I doubt it somehow. Maybe they’ll still release the single though…maybe.

    Anyway before this becomes even more non-sensical, I’m going to stop writing. I almost promise that the next post won’t be about Tsuji. Unless she’s having triplets or something.

      This is really, really, really surprising to hear.
      I didn’t believe it at first!
      I support her though…:D
      I bet her baby will be really cute ^^;

    • Max 1:34 am on 2007-09-18 Permalink | Reply

      whatever happened to the rumour of her returning to H!P after her baby’s born? She said she plans to return and that UFA doesn’t have a problem with her coming back. We just have to wait about a year to find out x3

    • Puffy Love 5:26 am on 2008-01-10 Permalink | Reply

      Aibon turns 20 in a month. If Nono decides not to return to UFA, she would be free to reunite with Aibon……….where she truly belongs! I’d be surprised that management/talent agencies wouldn’t jump at the chance to reunite them. Sine they put out two wonderful discs as ‘W’ isn’t it unreasonable to think it wouldn’t sell?

      Personally, I’d like to see them return in a more mature setting………..as indie rock chicks like Puffy!

    Tsuji Nozomi Pregnant and soon to be married! (2 Updates) 

    Wow! That’s all I can say to this news. I’d like to say I’m surprised but really I’m not too much, what one of the two-top do the other does. I’m not sure how this will affect Gyaruru and her new solo career, but I have a feeling she can’t be a full time idol as well as a mother. I think Tsuji fans will take this very hard, especially after Kago Ai being removed from UFA. The father is supposdly Sugiura Takayasu of ULTRAMAN fame.

    The News Report

    Update 1: According to FujiTV, UFA have confirmed Tsuji’s upcoming marriage but have yet to confirm the pregnancy.

    Update 2: According to Hello! Online, Tsuji is ceasing her showbusiness activities as she needs “peace.”
