Rikappi's Room ♥



If I could die happy now, I would.

Because today, was one of the best days of my life as a H!P fan.

I got to meet Kago Ai at Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater!!

She was promoting KDDI Mobile so when I heard she was gonna be 30 minutes away from me, I was like, “I must see Kago-chan no matter what! As long as I meet one H!P member in my life, even if they are former or current, I am satified!”.

So, my dad drove me there and we came at 11 a.m. even though the event started at 12:30 p.m. While I waited, I met two girls who were H!P fans for five years and chit-chatted with them! They were so nice! Now they’re my friends on Facebook! xDDD;;

This is what the event stage looked like.

*waiting for Kago-chan to arrive*

And finally…

KAGO AI IN THE FLESH APPEARS!!!

KYAAAAAAA~!!!

I screamed like crazy. I kept shouting, “AIBON! AIBON DAISUKI!!”. Heck, I was even crying once I saw her! xDDD;; My emotions got builded up so much that before I realized it, a tear rolled down my cheek!

Kago-chan seemed really happy to see all of us! She was cuter than I imagined! Plus her English skills surprised me! She was pretty good! When she looked at the fans in our area we were standing she said, in English, “Where are you all from?”, and we (plus me of course) replied with, “NEW JERSEY!!”

So pretty much they explained about KDDI Mobile, in Japanese, blah, blah, blah. I could understand most of it but not all of it because it was kind of fast.

When the interviewer dude asked her about New York, Kago-chan said it was very artistic. And when he asked if she liked either Japan or America, Kago-chan answered, in English, “Both!”. xDDD It was soooo cute! Also, she did one her famous impersonations, Mei-chan from “My Neighbor Totoro”. Both in Japanese AND English! And I must say, it did sound like Mei-chan! I shouted, in Japanese, “Cute! It sounds like her!”.

After that, there was a raffle. One for free mobile service if you get a KDDI Mobile phone and phone straps. There were blue and red tickets distributed to the customers at the event. Obviously, my number wasn’t called. Raffles like these are hard to get so of course it’s hard to win easily.

And after the event ended, TIME FOR THE HANDSHAKE EVENT!!

However, there were a few conditions. People with blue tickets got to shake her hand and take a picture with her and people with red tickets only got to shake her hand. Unfortunately, I had a red ticket. ;_;

But, it was the best experience of my life!

(Note: Some of this might not be 100% accurate. I was too excited that I kind of forgot what happened! xDDD;;)

As soon as I saw Kago-chan, I shook her hand and said, in Japanese, “I’m a big fan! You’re so cute!”. She smiled at me and said, “Thank you!”. And then, we parted with a “bye-bye”.

It. Was. Amazing.

Being able to meet a H!P idol is a wonderful feeling.

Ooh! When the press interviewed her, an American reporter asked her about Tsuji-chan. When he asked if she was going to sing with her again, she said, “I don’t think so.”.

And, that was pretty much it.

That was such a fufilling day!

I wish I could repeat it again! x3

Someday, I hope I get to see her again!

Kago-chan, please definitely return to New Jersey if your schedule allows you!

We’ll all be waiting for you with open arms! <333

Unfortunately, no Kei-chan Picture of the Day. I’m too lazy. xDDD;; But, I’ll definitely do it next time! Promise! Maybe I’ll do two! x3

And that’s it! Byeeee~! x3
