August 13th saw DiVA have a live event at the Ai Chikyuu Haku Memorial Park in Nagoya to celebrate the release of their single ‘Cry’. Luckily enough one half of the Twin Towers – Sae Miyazawa was also celebrating her 21st birthday on the same day and 2,300 fans turned up in the unrelenting heat to help her have an event that she’ll cherish in her memories.
Sayaka, Umeda and Masuda even shocked Sae with their own rendition of ‘Namida Surprise’ as a birthday treat for her. After performing on stage, the 4 girls took part in stamping items of their fans choice with a variety of different stamps that the members themselves had designed (see picture below). Two similar events by DiVA will take place on Saturday 20th August at the Chiba Makuhari Messe and also on September 17th at the Senri Serushii in Osaka.
A belated happy birthday to you Sae. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your birthday after work.

Recently I posted that NMB48 2nd gen kenkyuusei member Rena Shimada had been caught talking about her boyfriend on her blog and that a purikura picture of them together had been found too. NMB48 management had let her off saying she would continue to work hard and besides they probably thought the relationship was over. Now though more damaging purikura pictures have surfaced including one in which she kisses her boyfriend. Somebody with a grudge against Rena obviously wants her out of NMB48. The pictures are dated 29th January 2011 which means that Rena would have done her audition for NMB48 but obviously not known whether she passed it or not.
NMB48 management were quite lenient with Rena the last time, will they be forced now to take appropriate action against her……….maybe even fire her? It all depends if this relationship is still ongoing. Perhaps this guy was dumped by Rena soon after being accepted into NMB48, he’s still rather peeved about it and this is his revenge by ruining her career. If this is the case it’s a rather shitty thing to do.
