Morning Musume。’16 appeared as main guests for Anime Matsuri so, I got to come with everyone to Houston♡




Being with everyone for a long time like this, it was funnn♪
It was my first long trip with Oda-chan and the 12ki!
We all talked together a lot!! lol Being a bother lol for sure it’s okayー!lol












Nonaka-chan smelling a nostalgic scent and getting excited.♡
She was enjoying America for the first time in a while♪




I got to see all the overseas fans for the first time in a while, it was a delight♪
I’ll do my best so that all the fans cheering overseas and the Hello! members can be connected.



[tl note: From this point on Aika writes in English, I will not italicize it for ease of reading.]


Thank you as always.
I’m so happy…♡



I came to Houston with Morning Musume。’16 who was invited to Anime Matsuri as the main guest.




I enjoyed staying with them so long and also it is my first time to travel with Sakura Oda and the 12th members. So I talked with them a lot. I was wondering if I made them annoyed;( I hope I didn’t. lol


I met the overseas fans after a long time! I was very happy! I really want to connect you with Hello! Project members. I’ll do my best!

It’s Ishida Ayumi



The live in Houston


it was reallllーy funあんぐりハーチョ



The way people get into it is completely different from Japan,


The call timing and
cheers and stuff, in any rate they’re loudキラキラ



Not just Morning Musume。 fans,


Those who came to 「ANIME MATSURI」, it’s just people who love anime and manga and came to see things but,


The number of them is,



Approximately 6000 地球キラキラ



After hearing that I was surprised……!
That many people……!


It ended up being a really really fired up live so,


Morning Musume。’16
I feel we got to show our appeal a lotgood




For our self-introductions in English too,


In New York I couldn’t say it as I remembered but this time I said it properly! I did!




Or maybe I certainly


feel like I’ve gotten more skilled at English地球キラキラ



2014’s New York Performance


The Fanclub tour’s Hawaii


The worldwide handshake meets



Proportional to the times I’ve gone overseas,
I feel like I myself am growing! lol



Getting whatever I’m being toldキラキラ


and for that
trying to answer in English and be conveyed キラキラ


In my own unskilled way I’m doing my best



For example,


Like 「yesterday…concert…enjoy?」


I’m just line up vocabulary but汗



It conveys itキラキラ
If there’s a feeling I want to convey I’ll convey itキラキラ



Actually yesterday (27) and today (28), we got to do a signing event, and there I got to talk a lot 笑顔時計


Happy things
I got to say lots of themハーチョ



From my heart,


“I’m glad I got to come to Houston!”


I feel that



「ANIME MATSURI」 has finished,
and alreayd we have to go home,


it feels lonely汗



I still want to be here…


But doing that, all the Japanese fans would get lonely so, I have to go home huh?


But still, I want to interact with all the overseas fans more…



Aa~Being popular is hard huh~笑顔! lol





Morning Musume。’16 with Mitsui Aika-san



Really thank you so much for your support ハーチョ



So that we can do an overseas performance again,
Morning Musume。 will do our best!


Everyone in the world, please wait for us!





And, to all the people in Japan


I took good souvenir picturesgoodキラキラ



I have lots but,
for now I’ll put up 1 kay~



Houston’s first day


We went to a rodeo, and they were doing a Barbeque Rally(?), there were lots of good smelling shops all lined upご飯ハーチョ



There I encounted this




A fa, face cut-out panel!? lol




The hole is palm sized,
The panel was placed slanted on the ground,


My first time encountering this typeあんぐり汗



When I touched it it seemed like I got scolded so←



I couldn’t put my face through it…


Investigation Over!




Of course it’s overseas!


the hurdle for face panels is hard huh?!




See you ayuminハーチョ
