Hello Project Girls blog about about the Earthquake

Many of the Hello Project girls have blogged after the earthquake. They've confirmed that they and their families are safe, and what they're doing to help the efforts.

Shimizu Saki
To everyone who’s been worried about me, I’m all right.
Berryz members and staff are also safe.

Even now the aftershocks continue, and it’s a situation you just can’t prepare for.

It’s not just naturally being scared, but it’s also something I haven’t been able to comprehend.

The things I can do
and I’ve frantically tried to stay calm and think about


Energy conservation

If you’ll allow me to post some related sites.

This is a page on Google which summarizes disaster information

And a page where an earthquake incident emergency manual is summarized.

I guess it’s just a small thing, but I’ll do what I can with all my might

And if we gather together everyone’s strength, it’ll become a large force

Takahashi Ai
What can I do?

For now, we can save energy.

I’m watching the news and such, but it’s not setting in.

There is also an Ameba group where you can leave comments for those in affected areas.

Somehow, we won’t lose!!!


Note: I think this is the ameba group Aichan is referring to:
Amebaグルっぽ 「東北地方太平洋沖地震情報共有グルっぽ」 (Ameba Group “North-Eastern Pacific Ocean region earthquake information sharing group”)

Maeda Yuuka
Good evening, it is Yuuka.

Today too, I spent
the whole day at home.

Every channel on TV has the same content

Japan doesn’t seem like Japan…

For a kid like Yuuka to be able to do something

I thought I could only just conserve electricity but

But, thinking that there must be other things I can do
I went searching for various ways to help out!

Even though Yuuka completely lacks the ability to take action,

and like, I don’t fully understand
how the internet is structured

I got an idea from my Mama,

to set up a fundraising drive online!

Probably the amount of fundraising that Yuuka can do
would not amount to very much but

if everyone, under that same feeling,
can work together bit by bit

when we can all unite
then I think we can put that to benefit lots of people!

Up until now, I thought
this problem was something that was unrelated to me…

but, then I became aware
that it has become like this!

Now is the time to help each other!

Yuuka donated here!*

I’ll be thinking about if there isn’t something else that I can do.

If there is something,
please tell me!!

I’ll pray that the victims can return to their peaceful lives even if just one day sooner.

*Note: the link that Yuuka posted is redirecting back to Japanese Yahoo. If you would like to donate and help the victims of this event, I know there is a direct link to the Japanese Red Cross via Google here:
Most of the girls blogged about conserving energy, so I included only the posts that involved donating. All the posts can be found translated at the source.

this is my favorite h!p song
ruggio 15th-Mar-2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
it deserved a single release and promotion tbh
ryrymini 16th-Mar-2011 03:58 am (UTC)
luckily they paired together the 2 best h!p singers to convey this important message.
flightbyzephyr Terrible song but...16th-Mar-2011 10:38 am (UTC)
Really nice costumes, go figure.
roomgirl 15th-Mar-2011 11:13 pm (UTC)
Yuuka is such a sweet kid. :(
sexi_panda 16th-Mar-2011 12:57 am (UTC)
I hope Sayumi and Aika are ok.
ryrymini 16th-Mar-2011 04:00 am (UTC)

molly_hime 16th-Mar-2011 01:41 am (UTC)
All of the current H!P and most if not all of the former girls have been confirmed as okay. There are 3 or 4 we haven't heard of, and Miyoshi Erika is currently unable to find her father, but other than that everyone is safe
taylorniw 16th-Mar-2011 03:01 am (UTC)
I think everyone in UFA has actually been confirmed. Kei, Kaori and Mari were unaccounted for the first two days but have been confirmed now. I think some of Kei's family is unaccounted for, though.
chibix3 16th-Mar-2011 06:03 am (UTC)
UFA was quite lucky..
chibix3 16th-Mar-2011 03:08 am (UTC)
Yuuka is such a sweet kid<3
chrismellody 16th-Mar-2011 06:06 am (UTC)
I thought when the staff of H!P said that all of the girls will refrain to blogging, we won't hear any updates from themselves until everything is safe.

But at least the leader of every group (Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, S/mileage) already explaining the current conditions about staff and members, glad they are safe. (Oh wait, Yuuka isn't the leader.) Somehow I believe the girls more than the staff though.

I'm still curious about C-ute because all of the members remain silent.
I know the staff said they're okay but...
Hope they all alright.
flightbyzephyr 16th-Mar-2011 10:37 am (UTC)
Wow, i'm really moved by yuukas efforts.

I wonder what tsunk has up his sleeve for raising money for the relief efforts...
molly_hime 17th-Mar-2011 12:35 am (UTC)
He also made a blog post about it, but I don't have a translation of it.
