49. Sneko

New Years is finally coming… Somehow, it’s a little exciting. I feel like this year, I can finally commit to my resolutions!

Lately, I’ve been working really hard with my dancers to prepare for two shows coming up, TAKII and Kotoricon. I will be performing a variety of songs at and my wonderful dancers will be helping out!  We have some really fun and exciting songs ready to perform and I can’t wait to do them! Some even include party poppers and confetti cannons! *0*
At rehearsals, even though we practice a lot, we also find time to just lounge around and have fun. Somehow, I’m always the one to make a punny joke, so I’ve been dubbed the oyaji  for my use of puns and wordplay… orz
I’m writing this on the 28th, one day before TAKII. We got our last rehearsal done as well as a crafts session to make matching neck bows for our performance! I think we’re all going to look super cute! Ahhh… I can’t wait!

I’ve never been very good at interacting with people. I’m always awkward and stiff but somehow on stage, I feel more confident and at home.  That’s why, I can’t wait to perform!
My New Year’s resolutions are to become more comfortable around people, a better performer, become a little more known, become healthier, and travel to Japan. I also wish to perform at least once in Japan this year! I know the last one is a little far-fetched, but it’s definitely not impossible, and I really want to give it my all this year. 
Well, that’s all for now! I have to go pack and finish some crafts for tomorrow! I’m super excited!

Wish me luck, everyone! I’ll make sure to post up a video of my performance in a future entry!
Ah, but before I go…
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2013?

50. Haribo

Hi~minna Haribo desu~ agaiiin!! ^^ Today I bring you a mini blog, because I feel bloggish… although I can’t blog very well please enjoy! (◕‿-)
I have just realised new years is very soon, and I don’t have a resolution (╯3╰) wahhhp! (<-sound of anger and confusion.) Ne, these blogs are getting stranger aren’t they? I LUVET! (•⊙ω⊙•) (<-Nightmare face)! Okay enough random shizzle… I suppose if I had to choose a new year’s resolution it would be to keep on top of school and oishii work some more~
~(-3-)~ even though I do, but meh! This isn’t going anywhere…! (-_- )ノSA~ CHRISTMAS! I love Christmas sooo much, but I wish it had snowed, and I wish I knew a snowy dance so I could snow it up ^_^! Alas. (who even uses that word… I know I don’t O_O). I received some lovely presents for Christmas liikkee… Earphone earmuffs (toasty and musical ^_^ and fun to blast my favourite jpop songs to the unsuspecting UK streets o(≧o≦)o muahhaha), chocolate (CHOCOLATE Huuuu CHOCOLATE <- watched spongebob as a child ^^and look where I am). I also got some lovely cooking supplies, like an icing bag and cupcake thingys and this amazing vanilla sugar grinder, I love sugar and vanilla is my favourite flavour so this could get hyper very quickly!ლ(╹◡╹ლ) So Christmas was lovely, and I’m still kinda feel Christmassy which is nice!!
Normal life wise I’m currently addicted to a purikura app on my phone (nothing new here (¬▂¬)) and I find it fun to take pictures of my friends and family who don’t quite understand the sheer amazing, sparkliness which is purikura.. I’ve had a lot of fun doing my own purikura as well, and I NEVER like taking photos of myself… so I come across a bit obsessed with ma face. ,_, *titanic theme*. If this is your first time reading my blog or meeting me in any way then this may all be a bit much for you! But I asure you I’m not actually this weird but I am described as a happy, glittery, rainbow fairy by my friends… Although I’m more destructive and less graceful than a fairy and I have a bad temper (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ehehe.
Dancing wise I’m working on a pile of dances as usual, I have a bad habit of learning the dance and leaving out the instrumental until last minute. Which if the dance is H!P is a bad idea, the instrumental bits are always the hardest… I thought this then I saw momoiro clover’s mirai bowl… that instrumental took me a while but I worked towards the goal and met it!! WOOP! HENCHᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ
∩(︶▽︶)∩Wow! This blog is getting long huh? I’ll wrap it up soon… I’m just polishing my One.Two.Three- Morning Musume dance cover and that should be up soon! Otherwise I’ve learnt a dance I don’t think anyone on youtube has ever covered…(^▽^) eheh special!! But that’s a surprise, the dance isn’t all that eventful but it was quite hard and the song is just kawaii as hell!✖‿✖
New year and I can’t wait to start getting into all the oishii activities, I’m still getting over the excitement of passing the audition.. kyaaa~!
Thank you for reading my second entry, sorry if I gave you a headache…щ(ಥДಥщ)(Whhy?!) heheh
Byee byeee~ Until new years! 2013!!!
Haribo xoxoxo (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚☆
one of my edits when I was bored ^_^’ mini cherry!! xoxo

47. Miraku

hello!  こんにちわ !        ヾ(^∇^)   
My name is Miraku and I’m the only Norwegian member of Oishii Project. I love to be a part of Oishii because it’s such a great project!  It’s helping me so much on my way to becomming an idol and I’m always doing my best so that I can become a real idol one day. I think akiba idols are very cute, but I don’t want to be akiba idol myself even though so many of my friends want to.  My big dream is to recognised as  idol in Japan and I won’t give up no matter what ~  (≧∇≦)
I really love pastel colors, cute clothes, singing and dancing. I also love Japanese music. My favourite idol group is Morning Musume and I’m in love with the Oshare Kei music and fashion. My favourite group is SuG and An Cafe. 
Many people are surprised by it, but I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who and Sherlock. Sherlock is so cool, don’t you think so?  
I am from Norway so my native language is Norwegian. I have studied English at school for 10 years. It’s so much fun to learn a new language!  I’m learning Japanese now, but I’m new at it, so please forgive my mistakes! 
I’m really excited to get started in Oishii Project and I hope you will keep supporting us. I’m really grateful to all of you. ヾ(´・ω・`) 
Let’s go! 
To the future of idols ~ 

48. Haruna

Hi everyone ! Bonjour tout le monde ! . (≧∀≦) 
My name is Haruna, i am 13 years old – owh, i’m so young ;_ ; - and here is my first blog entry as a Mini Cherry >w<. I’m a little bit excited about this. *^*

Also ! ~
I’m the second french member of the Oishii !Project, so, i hope you can understand me as well because my english is not really perfect :c.
So, i love j-pop, k-pop, PANDAS *^* ( and bears <33 ), mangas, singing and dancing, playing video game ( i’m a very big fan of pokemon °w° ), hats *p* ( i do a collection about this héhé >w< ), and learning languages :3 . i can speak french – no really ? -, english, german and i began to learn chinese and japanese this year. ~ (<- i love waves <3 )
My favorite colors are light pink and turquoise and hum.. my favorite subjects at school are history and art ! (づ  ̄ ³ ̄)づ

I pratice dance since eleven years ago and this is a real passion for me <3. I love singing too : i do this everywhere and everytime. ( sorry for my friends haha ). And i wanna learn how to play the piano one day. D :
I really enjoy the fact to be in the O !P because i can sing and dance with amazing girls and meet some people all over the world **. For me, this is just wonderfuuuuul. o/ ( and really, the members of the second generation of the mini cherries are really amazing ).

Ok, i gonna speak about my OSHIMEEEN. I think, my oshimen is Iikubo Haruna from «  Morning Musume ». I met her the 30/10/12 in Paris ( i live just next to this beautiful city *^* ) and really, she is IGIULEYIUEYZLIUT. *www*. Before, i really hate her – why ? i don’t know – but omg, she ‘s so sweet and so beautiful *=*. Since that meeting, she became my oshimen :33. ( oh and, i didn’t use the surname haruna because of her, but because of a manga’s character in " to love ru " 8) ).  But i really love Airi Suzuki and Riho Sayashi too. <3 They are my three angels :3.
My favorite J-POP band is Buono !, because it’s my first group of this type of music and they are soooo incredible. *^* I love them. <3. But I really love all the band of the Hello !Project, AKB48, One Ok Rock ( takaaaa >w< ) and Momoiro Clover Z ( ayakaaaaaa <3 ).
For the K-POP, my bias are Zelo from the B.A.P and Injun from « The Boss /Dae guk nam ah » ( yes, they sing in japanese, but the members are corean. So for me, it’s a k-pop band :c ).  I really love BIGBANG, Teen Top ( ricky and chunji *^* ) , Super Junior, B1A4 ( baroooo <3 ) and hum… Lots of other x3.
As a Mini Cherry Member, i would like to improve my pronunciation of japanese words, and improve my dancing skills because i think, i can be better in this discipline !! (>v<) I really can dance without the video of the dance in front of me, because that’s bad . D : Ok, i wanna improve my memory too ( french peoples would say that i have a « mémoire de poisson rouge » :c ). I am really going to do the best i can for me and the O !P fans :3. I hope you gonna support me héhé. 8)

THIS IS THE END. Thank you for reading my boring speech.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ☆ . ヽ(=´∀`=)ノ
Sayonara  (≧ω≦) . <3

Oh ! Just a last thing : i’m not a yandere like miri and claudia say :’cc.

42. Claudie

Salut, 你好, Guten Tag, こんにちは, Hola, Dia Duit and Hello!!
My name is Claudie, and today I’m going to take the time to introduce myself to all you wonderful Oishii!Project supporters! I’ve only been in O!P for about a week and a half now, but as cheesy as it sounds, I adore everyone I’ve met. I’d never dreamed I would have such an amazing and enthusiastic group of new friends who love singing, dancing, and idols as much as I do! It’s really an incredible feeling. Speaking of idols, I’m a HUGE AKB48 fan!! I’m ready to follow Takamina to the ends of the earth! ♡ She’s my oshimen because ever since I started following AKB, I’ve really admired her intense work ethic and her positive attitude. She’s such a good captain and leader for AKB48, and I hope I can emulate her and shine as brightly as she does during my time in O!P. I would really like to improve on my dancing during my time as a Mini Cherry, and I want to be able to find my singing voice and become comfortable making lots of new friends and being in the spotlight.
No matter what, I’ll always be trying my hardest for myself and for all the other Mini Cherries, so watch out, O!P won’t lose to anybody!! ♡

Thank you for all of your support!!

43. Midori - First Post

Hello everyone ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ
I’m Midori, one of the new mini cherries!
And also the first and the only brazilian member in Oishii!Project ~  ☆
Nice to meet you all! (*゜▽゜ノノ゛☆ I hope I can get along well in the group~
I’m really happy to be an Oishii member  *A* I love all the girls, but I have to say that  I got really impressed with Scarlett’s voice *a* and I also like Cherry and Miraku a lot, they’re so cute <3 

So, how did I get into the jpop world? I like watching animes and reading mangas since a long time ago (and I love cute things too :*:・( ̄∀ ̄)・:*:  ), but what really made my passion for jmusic start was Hello!Project <3 The choreographies, the songs, the girls, everything <3 And here I am, until now, loving H!P (*⌒∇⌒*) haha and I have favorite members for several categories 8D
Takahashi Ai:  her voice is the one I like the most <3  Sayumi and Yuuka for being so cute  <3 Natsuyaki Miyabi for being amazing (and for her pretty voice too) <3 Momoko for being… Momoko  lol  And.. ok, that’s enough, or this can turn into a huge list 8D but what really gets my attention in a idol/artist is their voice or their personality. I can easily love someone just by loving her/his voice <3 and I don’t know how to explain which kind of personality gets my attention easily lol

Before H!P, I used to listen to japanese children’s songs.  My grandfather used to play me a lot of songs with videos (he is Japanese), and I still listen to those songs nowadays because it reminds me of so many good things from my childhood <3 and my favorite song was Kutsu ga Naru (and that’s how I realized that I like bunnies since I was young, and it made me think that the video of this song helped it to turn into my favorite:  there’s bunnies on it lol).  But I was too young to search more about Japanese music, so.. only years after that I discovered about H!P ~ (´・ω・`) 

But anyway.. I love singing and dancing so much since I was young and I want to do it as a job, so I hope I can improve my singing and dancing while I’m a Mini Cherry :D and also to get to know better the other members and learn a lot of things from them ~ ☆ And I want to have a good interaction with other people from internet~
but, well… I’m not used to blogging and vloging stuff, so I have many things to learn yet ~  I promise to do my best ~  ☆

I hope to make something good for O!P,  and that we all have a good time in 2013, please support all the groups <3333333333
Everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! ヽ(゜▽、゜)ノ
Byebye ~  See you soon  *hugs*

44. May - First Post

Hello everyone~! My name is May! I am 17 years old and I’m from the South Eastern United States.  When I first found out that I was one of the girls selected from the auditions, I was astounded. I couldn’t believe that I would have the opportunity to be a part of the project! Ah~ I’ve been having so much fun meeting and talking to everyone. We have all been working super hard on everything behind the scenes, and it’s an amazing experience. If we all work this hard together, who knows where this project can go?
I’ve been thinking a lot lately on which Jpop groups inspire me. I really admire all Hello Project groups for the hard work and determination of the members. They always seem like they are trying their best! Hello Project always makes me want to work harder.  I think my favorite members are the graduated Takahashi Ai from Morning Musume and Kumai Yurina from Berryz Koubou. I find many admirable qualities in Ai-chan while Yurina has always stood out to me because of her height. I’m a tall girl, too, you see. I can relate to her height!
So thinking about the qualities that I admire in other girls, it often makes me want to fight to improve myself and always do my best. As a Mini Cherry, I really want to improve on a lot of things and I am always adding to my list of things to work on! Right now I want to improve on my confidence, singing, and dancing. I also want to become bolder and learn how to express myself clearly. There is always room for improvement! J
I am so excited about being here with the project, and I hope that you all will lend us your support as we continue to grow! Thank you all so much for the love that you give this project, I truly do treasure it. To all of my lovely Oishii family, I want to say: Let’s all continue to work hard together, ne~? We have a long road ahead of us full of both fun and hard work.  I will work really hard as well, and I won’t lose to anyone!  (╯°Д°)╯︵ /(.□ . \)     
haha, that’s a bit extreme. I am just kidding, let’s all do our best together! haha <3
I hope that you will all support me on my Oishii Journey~!
Until next time,

45. Ryoko

Nyannichiwa~~~~~ Oishii Ryoko here, reporting for duty! Oh, you want me to deliver this giant box of candy to Princess Cloud without eating it? Haha, what a funny joke~~

はじめまして、みんなちゃん。This is one of the newest Mini Cherries of the second generation!! I’m really excited to be a part of this group. All of the staff and members are really nice ^///^ It amazes me to see all of the dedication that everyone puts forth to reach their dreams as becoming pop idols in Japan. It’s a heart-warmin’ thing I tellz you~~!!! This is when I have to give a shout out to my imouto-chan, Abbie, of Oishii Lychee. Biggest inspiration as of now. Motivation I tell you~ アビーちゃん、がんばって!

Seeing her and all of the others help motivate me to keep moving and never give up! As a Mini Cherry, I will not quit on my dream no matter how far away or difficult it may seem(Ha~ I made a rhyme)~ This means I will need all of your love and support to help me and the Oishii’s reach our dream! Are you with me? Okay! 

Oh, oh~ I also want to say that I am in fact the best Hide ‘N’ Seek player there is and no one will ever defeat me! You dare to challenge me? Non-sense~ Mwahahahahaha!!! *ahem* Oishii Ryoko, over and out, roger! *sparkle*

46. Mayu - First Post!

Hello, everyone!
My name is Mayu, I’m 15 years old, and I’m one of the new US members of Oishii Project (^ω^)
My hobbies and interests are anime, manga, jpop, singing, dancing, and fantasizing over the idea of possibly performing in concerts and having photoshoots like a real idol! (≧∇≦)

If you don’t already know I am in love with dancing and it’s my true passion! I am a self-taught dancer, and I’ve only ever taken one dance class in my life, and it was two years after I already started dancing to Jpop. I just love it so much, and my goal is to be one of the best Jpop dancers out there! I want to be an inspiration to others who aspire to dance or sing and show them that anyone can achieve their dream! (^∇^)

The people/groups/anime/games that inspired me to start dancing are Kozue Aikawa, Beckii, Idolm@ster (obsessed with this series XD), The KiraKira Moe Show (when I first saw them back in 2010) and all of the H!P groups (i’ve been obsessed with all of them at various times). I’ll never forget what an amazing inspiration all of them have been to me and I have never regretted starting up dancing! ♪( ´▽`)

One thing that I really need to improve on though, is singing. I’ve always sung for fun, not for any professional kind of environment, and so i’ve developed some bad habits that i need to fix. I hope that one day my voice will at least be considered good enough so that i don’t have to feel so shy singing in front of other people ( ;´Д`)

I’m really glad that I was accepted into Oishii Project because I really feel that this place will help me shine and improve so I can one day achieve my dream. Everyone has been so kind and friendly in the short amount of time I’ve been a part of the group and it’s really starting to feel like a family to me (thank you everyone!) (^з^)-☆

Thank you for reading my entry and I hope you will all support me in the future! I love all you so much ☆
Bye Bye

37. Haribo

Hi minna~! Watashi no namae wa Haribo! I am 18 years old and I am one of the new UK members of Oishii project and my favourite things are Nail art, anime, jpop, purikura, sushi, tumbling/trampolining and dance! I’m so happy to be part of the Oishii Project Mini Cherries! (≧ω≦)! I’ve always loved to dance and sing, especially to Japanese songs,it is one of my favourite hobbies and I practice every day! >-< It’s really great to be part of a project where I can do my favourite hobby and perform for all you lovely people( ^▽^)! I’ve also had the chance to meet loads of people across the world who share the same interests as I do, and so far I’ve made so many new friends! V(^0^)V YAY!
Oishii project is such a great idea, and it reaches out to those people like me who love Japanese culture and have a passion for dancing and singing, I feel like my hard work over the years practicing has really paid off! ☆_☆…. I AM RAMBLING >< gomen…I am also really apologetic -_-; hehehe!
My favourite idol group is Buono!, they were my first hello project! band and I was introduced to Japanese culture through my favourite film Spirited Away and the manga Fruits Basket! Ever since I’ve been a constant fan of Jpop and Japan!! \^o^/! (and I use a lot of emoticons *_*)! My oshimen is probably Risa Niigaki and sadly she left Morning Musume only a short time after I found love for their group(╥_╥).But I’ve always loved Momoko Tsugunaga, Ai Takahashi, Hitomi Yoshizawa and Ai Kago! ^^ <3 Ganbare!~ I also love Puffy Ami Yumi, Berryz Koubou, and my favourite songs are Goal! –Buono! and Go girl ~Koi no victory~ - Morning Musume!! o(≧o≦)o
As a mini cherry I really hope I can improve on my singing skills in particular, and increasing my confidence, especially when performing ,_,! And I will also hopefully get opportunities in Oishii Project to share my dancing skills and work reaallllyyy hard on them as I feel this is my real talent!! :D Ganbarimasu~
Thank you for reading my ramblings >< hehe, I hope you continue to support Oishii Project and help me and the other mini cherries towards our debut! Bye Bye xoxoxoxoxoxoxo  

38. Miri

Puri~Puri~Puri~! High✰Tension Cute!~ I’ve put my spell on you \ ( > v < ) \

Now that I have your attention, hello readers of the Mini Cherry blog! My name is Miri Purin! But you may call me Miri or whatever suits your fancy. This is definitely exciting to be writing my first blog entry as a Mini Cherry, it feels so real now! This first entry will be short, sweet, and to the point. 

I have been dancing for the vast majority of my life as well as singing but in I would say the last 5 years, I’ve really started to take it seriously, trying to improve and all that. It was also 5 years ago when my fascination with Japanese culture began. I was just so intrigued by the whole “aidoru" culture as it were. Basically all I listened to for 2 years straight was anything that came out from Hello!Project haha. My obsession progressed into being more interested into Japanese fashion and things like anime and manga. But, now that I’ve found O!P, I’ve most definitely rekindled my love for all things idol!

For the time that I will be a Mini Cherry, my main focus I think will be my dancing. Honestly, I’ve been taking dance classes for 13 years now and I am just the worst! When I watched cherries’ acceptance video I just couldn’t believe all of the amazing dance talent I saw! And then it hit me that I am no where up to par with the rest of the girls orz ;;. Everyone is so supportive and encouraging though! I know with everyone’s help, we are all going to improve so so much. 

And, do you know what you will not lose to me in? Energy! ENERGY!! I do try to tone myself down around others and people that may find me annoying but, when I can, I am High✰Tension Cute!~ I want to be able to bring a smile to everyone’s faces, there’s no room for sadness, only cheerfulness!

Well, this is all I have to say for now everyone. I hope to see you all next time!

Stay happy, stay cute! Puri~Puri~Puri~!

Kon’nichiwa all! My name is Jema (also known as dancelovelily), and I am a new Mini Cherry of O!P Weeeee! I am so Excited! I’m a very bubbly, energetic, always happy and smiling type of girl! I am always there to cheer you up and make you laugh especially when your feeling down. I absolutely love dancing, singing, gymnastics, figure skating, sewing and cosplaying!
Dance is my oxygen, my life, and what describes me! I believe everyone can dance! You just need to find your own flavor and style that makes you, you! I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful diverse and energetic sweet group! It is a wonderful opportunity! O!P is a project like no other! Such amazing people ranging from all sorts of talents, countries and personalities. Idols, idols idols Oh my! Well I have both Jpop and Kpop idols XD I am still widening my range of favorite idols or oishiimen in Jpop but as for Kpop OMG! SHINee, SHINee, SHINee! (Apparently I like repeating words by threes XD) I am a super oober fan of Onew from the Korean pop group SHINee! Ahhh I could go on and on about him oh my goodness! I also have some fav girl kpop groups/idols but for now i shall keep this somewhat short. As for Jpop I have always loved and followed Momoko Tsugunaga. I have a few others from Morning Musume, S/Mileage, C-ute, and Berryz Koubou.

As a Mini Cherry Member I would like to improve on my pop singing voice! By this I mean, i have a choir kind of jazzy and sometimes opra-esk voice LOL. I really love my jazzy voice when I get into it but I would like to sound more like a pop singer especially when it comes to O!P. I would also like to improve my endurance as a dancer. I used to have a high endurance but it has been lost recently due to some injuries over the past year, so it is time to get that back up! Yes! Okay! I am the biggest Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas and overall Gymnastics fan and follower! OH! and of coarse the largest fan of Onew and I won’t be beat indeed! LOL. Well sorry to have made this long but now you know a little about me :)

That’s all for now! And as I say, “Go, Go Minni Cherries!" (sings to power rangers tune). Jane~

40. Charlotte

Hello! (^。^)ノ♪
Charlotte here, part of the 2nd generation of Oishii Mini Cherries!
Eep, this is so exciting! I’m still shocked at being chosen haha! Today I’m going to introduce myself to you ~
So, I am one of the British members of Oishii. I study art and my passion is photography ~★When it comes to photography I won’t lose to anyone! (*^-゚)⌒☆Really, I like a lot of things! So I’ll tell you some interesting facts: I’m a part of the MK Dance Group, my favourite fruits are cherries - so I’m really happy that I’m in Mini Cherries hehe, I’m a massive fan of Harry Potter, I have three cats, and even before joining Oishii!Project I’ve been friends with Sophie, Scarlett and Kelsey! (^^) Also I really love comedy and I constantly make a fool of myself to make others laugh.
I made it my goal to join O!P mainly because it seemed like a lot of fun! I really love seeing how hard the other members are working and their progress. I was a fan of everyone before joining the project and I still am! (〃ω〃) Everyone shines so brightly ~☆
I’m a big lover of idols, my oshimen being Airi Suzuki from H!P groups℃-ute and Buono! She inspires me to smile more, because I have crooked teeth like her – yet she always looks beautiful when she smiles (*^^*) She gives me confidence in my own smile, although it’s embarrassing to admit aha.
Of course, I’ve also joined O!P to improve myself! I want to improve on everything haha! Hopefully I’ll get better at blogging and at singing, because there are days when I’m not at my best - but I want to change that. Mostly I would like to improve on my dancing and on my Japanese!
Whew! I think I’m finished.
Thank you very much for reading my first blog! ♪( ´▽`) Please also check out the other Mini Cherries! If you want to support me please subscribe to my Oishii YouTube channel.
Until next time! xoxo

Hello! You can call me Karina. I am 20 years old and I am turning 21 in March.  
I love to play video games especially Zelda, Pokemon and PC gaming.  You can find many Pokemon and Zelda items all around my room! My favorite Pokemon is Cyndaquil and my favorite Pokemon type is fire. :3 I have played every Zelda game a bajillionnnn times and my favorite symbol is a Triforce. I also love love love Anime! My favorite Anime so far would have to be Sword Art Online. Some other Anime I like are Fairy Tail, Chobits, Idolm@ster, Toradora, Naruto, Zero no Tsukaima etc. I like to cosplay Anime characters and characters from games as well.  A few of my recent cosplays were Hatsune Miku, Pikachu and Windwaker Link from Zelda.  My favorite color, like most girls, is pink! I also love cute things!  A random fact about me is that I am a vegetarian.  I have been a vegetarian for about 11 years now.  I love all animals! My favorite animal is kittens. There so cute!  =^.^=  I have a passion for singing, dancing and performing.  I was in theater for about 5 years in Elementary School and Middle School.  I also was in Chorus throughout Middle School and High School and sung in my school Talent Shows.  I have had a passion for dancing for many of years. I loved to hip hop dance so I joined a Hip Hop team where we competed nationally. I loved performing and traveling to new places when I was on the team!

Some of my favorite artists are Morning Musume, Kyary, 2NE1, C-ute, Shinee, AKB48, and Vocaloid. As a Mini Cherry I would like to improve my singing, dancing and Japanese. I have not sung in a while so I still need to work on my higher notes but I am practicing very hard! With dancing I would like to improve on getting back my stamina I used to have and my overall dance performance.  I have just started learning Japanese not too long ago so I do not know much, but I am practicing my pronunciation and learning more almost everyday!

Why I love Oishii Project so much is because we have so many amazing and talented people in this Project!  I also think it is amazing how everyone is from all different countries and we still get together to make beautiful music.  It is so surreal that I am a part of Oishii Project.  I really look up to the staff and members.  I have been a big fan of the Oishii Project and now I am a part of it!!  
Thank you so much everyone for your support!  I hope you will support the Oishii Project and I throughout our journey together!

36. Sneko

Hello, everyone, my name is Sneko and it’s a pleasure to meet you! I hope you will watch over me from now on as I embark on my journey to become a full-fledged idol. I know I have a super long way to go, but with your support and motivation, I know I can do it!
I was born on November 16th, a month earlier than my expected date of birth. As a result, I find myself getting sick a lot, because of my overall weak immune system, and the added burden of having asthma. I want to work hard to get healthier for myself and for my future in Oishii Project so that I can perform to my highest potential! (ノ ̄д ̄)ノ

I have a weak spot for strawberry-themed items and cute clothing~ I like collecting cute mechanical pencils since I like to draw a lot and recently, my hobby has extended to collecting stationary and pens as well! *A*;;

If there’s one way to describe me… I’d guess it’d be that I’m a die-hard Tokyo Mew Mew fan! I collect a lot of Tokyo Mew Mew stuff. I must have over $2,000 worth of Tokyo Mew Mew stuff… OTL
I own all of Ichigo’s weapons, including a spare of her main weapon for cosplay, and I own all the rare prints of the English manga (with glitter titles). I even own figures of Ichigo and the limited edition box and figure set of the PS1 game. I even drew her on my wall! *0*

My favorite color? Can you guess?


It’s pink!
Everything I own is pink! My room, my laptop, my video-game consoles, brushes, bags, bed—everything! Pink is a very common response, but for me, pink is part of what makes Sneko “Sneko”. 

My love for the color pink and strawberries stems from my favorite mahou shoujo character, Mew Ichigo, the protagonist to Tokyo Mew Mew. She transforms into a pink-haired magical catgirl! She’s super adorable and I don’t think any other anime character could ever compare to her charms. When I was younger, I tried to dress like her and mirror her actions and speech. Ah, so embarrassing! *////*

I’ll let you in a secret! Did you know that my name is actually a reference to her? The name “Sneko” was actually a nickname I was given when my username was Strawberry Neko (“Strawberry Cat”).

Wah, embarrassing! But still, it’s a special name given to me by special friends, which is why I’ve kept my name. For me, my name holds a lot of precious memories. Similarly, Tokyo Mew Mew was the start of everything for me, which is why I hold it so dear to my heart. I truly believe, somehow, its how I’m here today! But maybe I’ll delve into that in another blog post… but only if you’re interested!

My favorite singers are myco and HIMEKA, and recently, I find myself starstruck by AKB48’s Mayu Watanabe! She’s really cute! I want to be cute like her oneday, but it might be impossible. TT___TT

HIMEKA is one of my biggest inspirations because like me, she started off covering videos on youtube. She later moved to Japan to chase her dreams and through perseverance and sheer talent, she finally won an anison audition and debuted as a singer, despite being a foreigner. I want to be like that one day! She has the ideal singing voice I’d like to have. She has a strong vocal presence and her voice is like that of a goddess. I’d definitely like to be able to sing at her level someday. I like the singer myco for a similar reason. Her vibrato is unique and her voice can be sweet and delicate or strong and mature. I like it when singers have a different styles in their voice, but can still have a very distinct sound that sets them apart from the rest. One day, I want to develop my own distinct Sneko sound. ヽ(○´∀`)ノ♪

I’m going to wrap this up, ‘cause this was a little long, haha. *^*;;

I’m extremely grateful that I was given such a wonderful opportunity to be a part of this and I’m going to give it my all! I’m grateful to you, too! Yes, you! The reader! I thank you for reading this!

It’s been my dream since I first began covering to become a J-pop singer and make my debut in Japan and through this group; I’m hoping to get one step closer to my goal. I’m not sure what my special charm is yet, but I’m confident that as a member of Oishii!Project, I’ll find it! For now, I’ll work hard on becoming raising my stamina and becoming healthier as well as developing a distinct voice that is uniquely Sneko! I hope you’ll watch over my progress and cheer me on!

Until next time,
