    Well, because we didn't actually listen to her first hand, I think we should not get our expectations too high. A degree of skepticism won't hurt, until we can actually confirm by ourselves :D
    (I mean we know she can sing, but to expect a diva feels like too burdening)

    Still, I'm happy, and will continue to keep an eye on her.

    Akimoto's "Ikuchan potential" comment about Kubochan isn't an exaggeration after all . . .

    Karaoke segment in Nogibingo would be great to see how potential 3rd gen in singing.
    And hopefully, she can take Rotti/Ikuchan's legacy as the member who can sing well in this group.

    So, last night (16th May) was the night Kubochan's turn to update 3rd gens blog comes. As usual, she proceeds with care in every word she wrote, and convey her feelings clearly.
    But there's this particular part in her blog that gains my attention:
    Ah. Miichan. I read your blog〜
    I am happy. I can't think about anything other than happiness.
    Miichan, I love you.
    I am glad I could meet you.
    (I intended to say this before but I haven't told her in person)
    By chance, right after that part, Kubochan posted a photo with Minamin on shinkansen when they were going for HS event at Nagoya.
    Those who just read it on a whim will quickly infer that Miichan is Minamin.

    Except that she's not. Miichan is Mizuki.
    That part of the blog was actually a reply to a part of Mizuki's blog that was posted exactly a week before (9th May), which reads (p.s it's a lengthy one):
    On a night when I fell ill, I received message from Shiichan.
    As I was reading Shiichan's blog, I somehow felt embarrassed (*ノдノ)
    And I thought I am going to do my best again in this place.
    Because the impact of Principal is big, we are often told that we are rivals, but
    for me the feeling of admiration is strong, there will always be someone who possess things that I cannot have even if I want it.
    And if you tell Shiichan, the same answer will be given.
    Surely we are aware of each other as idol number one, we are feeling the same kind of pressure.
    That is why I want the two us to be in a relationship where it allows us to advance together.
    I was somehow shy and couldn't properly say it at that time, but

    I am glad to be in Nogizaka with you.

    Surely I wouldn't be able to meet you if you didn't enter Nogizaka.
    I will work hard to be a person next to you who matches you, Kuboshi!
    (Shiichan's slip at the end of the word is funny)

    Accidentally, the last line in that message was
    My butt [note: boku oshiri - really, I don't know if this was intended, but it's an anagram of kubo shiori :^O^:]
    There's a column in the previous questionnaire about 'This member is great at this!' and
    Shiori's butt
    I think I wrote something like that, I can't remember (*´-`)
    (she proceeded with posting a photo of Kubochan wearing her red bandana)
    Red bandana is classic for Shiorin.
    There's no Kubochan or Zukki nickname there, because they decided to call each other Shiichan - Miichan, or Kuboshi - Yamashi, just as what Mizuki wrote on her previous blog at 27th April.

    This, is exactly what I'm hoping to happen. A friendly rivalry of best friends. Just like Mayuyu - Yukirin, Sayanee - Milky, Jurina - Rena, Maiyan - Nanamin, you name it. This kind of relationship will be able to boost both parties involved into something beyond expectations. Both will be benefited. I really do hope so.

    Alright then, while I'm at it, might just translate Kubochan's blog as a whole. She talks a lot about 3rd gen members and their live concert.

    And her mom too...

    The day after the live ends
    I was trying to sleep, but somehow I felt lonely
    I went for a walk by myself
    But I got tired and came back after 5 minutes.
    Seems like I'm not suitable for walking.

    Hello everyone.
    Good work everyday.
    Nogizaka46, 3rd generation
    I am 1st year high schooler, 15 years old, Kubo Shiori.
    Thank you.

    This time the blog will be a bit longer.

    Handshake meeting was held at 6th - 7th May at Nagoya
    Thank you very much!!!

    I was paired with Choco-Reno!
    You could see Reno's tension was high
    I was also happy.

    Reno-oshi are kind too, I was having fun!
    Thank you very much!

    At the handshake
    I wore a white salopette (overalls)...
    I wore off-shoulder...

    Thank you very much for coming!
    It was really fun〜〜〜〜!

    (Three parts of the clothes were posted in Miichan's blog!)

    Ah. Miichan. I read your blog〜
    I am happy. I can't think about anything other than happiness.
    Miichan, I love you.
    I am glad I could meet you.
    (I intended to say this before but I haven't told her in person)

    Minamin was next to me when we were at the Shinkansen going to Nagoya.
    I took the photo because she's cute〜〜

    And then, 3rd generation live is finally concluded at 14th May. Thank you very much.

    Taiyou Knock
    Romantic Ikayaki

    Nogizaka no Uta
    We did it.
    (I am sorry if it's hard to watch...)

    In unit corner, I participated in Hoka no Hoshi kara and Arakajime Katarareru Romance.

    Those who came, those who yelled for us, those who wanted to go to see us,
    really, thank you so much.

    Everyone were able to come this far because of you.

    We have finished all 8 performances in 6 days
    I remembered during our hard days
    It feels like a tight thread has been snapped

    When the live was decided
    I thought that this is my chance.

    I thought that this is an opportunity that comes only for 3rd gens,
    If I waste this, there won't be next,
    I challenged.

    Through this period, I also experienced a change.
    Up until now, I never really do anything by myself.
    I wish I could. I acted with such willpower in mind.

    I was afraid if I'm ignored when I tell people around about my opinion.
    Also, because I'm not perfect, I think I am not in the position to tell anybody else.

    But, I noticed that kind of live wasn't good.
    Even if someone made it, there can't be anyone who don't.
    I noticed that in the lesson, I cannot pull everyone's leg.
    I practiced my dancing and singing carefully.

    And, to always say what you think,
    I realized that is the way for the live to be a success.

    In 6 days, my way of thinking changed.
    At the same time, the relationships between 12 people has also changed.

    I can't really put it into words...
    We are not friends. We are comrades, but it doesn't end there. We more than family either...mmm, it's difficult.

    But surely, the power of us twelve is rising.
    I am not satisfied yet.

    The future of 3rd generations too, please keep an eye and watch us.
    To live up to Nogizaka46's name, we are going to try our best to crawl by ourselves.
    So, please continue to support us in the future.

    Thank you. AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo

    I am happy to be able to do it in this place.

    Thank you for pulling us with your MC-ing even if you are underage.
    Even though it bothered you a lot, thank you.

    Thank you for being honest by telling everyone what you're thinking even though it's difficult to say.

    Thank you for pulling the live and succeed. With you, we all did well.

    Not only piano, thank you for working hard until your voice cracked. You are cool.

    Thank you for practicing dancing and singing together with me, and giving eye contact while dancing.

    Even though you were sick, thank you for working hard at the live. Don't overdo it.

    In the dressing room, thank you for listening to my stories and sharing yours too. Your height of tension during live was impressive.

    Thank you for always smiling and looking at us even when dancing. I will not forget the incident at our last performance encore (p.s. Hazuki wore her t-shirt backwards)

    Our distance was really shortened during the live. Thank you for always giving 100% performance.

    I was really supported. Thank you for always being with me and waiting for me. This time I will support you.

    Even when you weren't feeling well, you stood on stage full of spirits and looking cool. Thank you for pouring your full effort every time.

    Looking back again,
    From here we will review personal points.

    I feel really grateful to these eleven people,
    but I can't thank Momochan enough.

    Momochan, really practiced piano everyday. At handshake meeting, before lesson, in between lessons, she also brought home an electronic piano.

    Looking at her while she's sleeping,
    "Don't work too hard..."
    I also became worried.

    Momochan is really amazing.
    She's cool. Thank you.
    Thanks to Momochan, the bonds between these 12 people have deepened. Thank you.

    The tense feeling before the curtain was opened at Kanashimi no Wasurekata.

    One side of blue scenery at Nandome no Aozora ka?.

    Singing one by one at Kikkake.

    Momochan's piano during Kimi no Nawa Kibou.

    I will not forget them.

    I just finished, there are still a lot of things I want to say, but no words come out.
    So, please let me write what I thought in the next blog.
    I am surprised, I can't put it into words.

    Only one,

    I did it.

    I will arrive there.
    I don't want to stay here.

    I want to do my best to be able to go further.
    I want to fulfill my dreams.

    Even at Hibiya, I'll try my best to make the best stage possible, please take care of me.

    Everyone who were involved in this live.
    Really, thank you very much.
    I cannot thank you enough.
    Really, really, thank you very much.

    Somehow now my power is really depleted,
    I can't turn my head...

    Today I took a nap, when I woke up, I was in a rush I took my bag and jumped out of the house.
    It feels as if the live isn't over yet. Me.
    I wonder if I have to do the live alone at home today.

    I want to do it again.

    By the way, May 14th, the last performance day
    It was "Mother's Day", wasn't it?

    My mother wasn't there at the 14th, but she came to the live. I wish I could make it even more enjoyable even by a bit.
    During the live, my mother helped me when I wasn't doing well with my lesson.

    I am my mother's daughter, and we've been living together for a long time, I never imagined I will have to leave my parents alone now.

    When I came to Tokyo, while I was walking, whenever I see a child with her mother walking together and holding hands, the old days recollections emerge and I burst into tears.

    Before, there's a child with her mother who asked 'What is it for today's dinner?'
    I somehow felt lonely.

    That night, I contacted my mother.
    "What is it for today's dinner?"

    "I made a special katsu. It's very good. I want you to eat too."

    Mom, what are you doing now?
    Thank you for your hard work everyday. Thank you very much as always.
    Next time we meet, please make a dinner.
    Let's eat together.
    Thank you for giving birth to me, and leading me to this path.
    From now on too, please take care of me.

    I definitely won't be able to say such things directly. Un.

    Did you watch NOGIBINGO!8?
    I tried hard to pay full attention to variety...how was it?
    Please don't hate me(´・_・`)

    In my last blog, I received a lot of cheering and impressions for the live.
    Thank you very much.
    Because all of you are here, I can be here now.
    I will do my best in the future without forgetting it.

    Even though I said I will work hard, I did work hard.
    I am not good at evaluating myself.
    Someday I want to be someone who can recognize herself.
    I wonder if it will still take some time.

    Today has been pretty long although the content isn't much(´・_・`)
    I am sorry(´・_・`)

    I will write again.
    Kubo Shiori.

    I always thought that people can't change themselves without being exposed to opportunity.
    If I don't have the chance, my current environment will not change either.
    But that's not it. There are also people who can change even when there's no chance.
    Daily accumulation is important, and I evaluate as I am watching, I want to become a person who can change the environment little by little.
    There is no such thing as instant moment.
    This is one of her best blogs so far. I am really sorry if my translation is a mess so her messages can't be conveyed perfectly.

    Yeah. She's pretty in those photos. It's a nice blog post today. I like that she referenced Sakaguchi's tagline. And I wonder who the 2 sleepy faces were? Ririan and who? My bets on Yamashita.

    It's Reno, Kubochan took it when 3rd gens were having mini talkshow and HS at mall all over Japan . Kubochan was teamed with Reno and Ririan for the first two days, then with Reno and Rentan on the last day.
    By the way, after some digging, found a candid shot of the HS on the last day at Niigata (dunno if this is illegal or not lol)

    The recent problem with the forum really hold us back...:cry: Hope it will return to normal soon

    Anyway, a good news! Kubochan is now a close friend of Himetan!

    Himetan recently wrote in her blog on 3rd June (warning: praises, praises)
    I became good friends with Shiichan!
    We ate together!

    Somehow among Nogizaka members, her personality is the most similar to me \(^o^)/(laughs)
    "I understand, I understand," she replied me.
    I've never met a person who could sympathize with me on this level before.

    We were chatting non stop for 3.5 hours!

    Shiichan is really a good kid♡

    She is really firm,
    Thinking about a lot of things,
    Always paying attention to her surroundings.

    She gives positive answer that comes from within
    I really respect her positive hardworking appearance.

    "I'm happy," and "Thank you," are wonderful words so
    I think they can be used so many times.

    Also, her pupils are sparkling!

    Shiichan, thank you♡
    Let's talk again later~\(^o^)/
    (Lowkey hoping Himetan will introduce Kubochan to Ikuchan and Chiharun too, and form a powerful quartet vocal unit :1st:)

    Himetan is now added to the list of senpai who interacts with Kubochan! While we're at it, here are some photos of Kubochan with her lovely seniors (all rotated to the proper positions)

    By the way, I just updated Kubo Shiori gallery with her pre debut photos from her cheerleading days at Rakuten Angels. Most of them are low in quality because they're zoomed and cut from group photos, but still better than nothing. She's cute nonetheless haha

    The first time i see her and everytime i see her, its alwys remind me of that teacher from kuzu no honkai, not the face, but more like she would fit the roles of that woman. It intrigues me, someone who look fragile like her...

    But i like that lol she's my most fav member from 3rd gen.

    Excerpt from Sayunyan's blog today :
    Also, after watching 3rd gen live,
    I completely became Kubochan-oshi lol
    Ever since the time of rehearsal
    I was always watching Kubochan (ↂ⃙⃙⃚_ↂ⃙⃙⃚)
    Super cute!!!

    They also have a two-shot photo that was posted a few days ago in Sayunyan's mobame, but since I don't subscribe...
