Berryz Kobo à Seattle, day 3

Here is the report for the last day of Berryz Kobo in Seattle. This day of course was important as well, because it was the last day for the donation box.

But first, a new costume was on the booth and it was Yurina's this time.

So about the donation box, once again, in the name of Up-Front and of course Berryz Kobo, we would like to thank once again all the people who donate for the association.
Some people asked me if it was possible to give the money they earned while organizing their own event for example. Of course we took all the money possible to help after the disasters in Japan. Thank you all for your generosity!!!

and gave the money they earned, THANK YOU!!
Following this, Berryz had another signing session and Captain (Saki Shimizu) came on the booth for the lottery.

7 people won a polaroid of one member and her sign. And then one lucky guy won a huge poster with the sign of all members on it. Is there any better way to finish this convention ? ;)

Then, it was time for the ending ceremony. Berryz Kobo came for the last time on stage and after thanking everyone, Momoko gave all the money earned ($1887.89) to Sakura-Con for Seattle Japan Relief.

Berryz Kobo said sayonara to the public and left the stage. Later, they came back to Japan, but all more than happy. They came to meet wonderful and cheerful fans, to give a nice live and provide as much as possible help to Japan.

Thank you!!!!!!!!

PS: I hope you liked all the pictures I took for you :)


  1. Thanks a lot!!! It was very complete information & photos, really interesting!! n_n Excelent Job!! :D

  2. Thanks! I really appreciate the effort you made. :)

    I really, really hope we get a DVD out of this trip. (A Visual Book would be awesome too.) You'll definitely sell a bunch to the hordes of us who are suffering serious Berryz withdrawl now. :)

    Just so you know, the amount you raised is just the *tip* of what was given. I'm sure I'm not the only one that gave directly to PeaceWinds or other charities. My company matches direct giving, so that is where most of my money went.

    Personally I couldn't sleep after what happened. It brought me to tears more than once. It was even more real for me as I was to host a Japanese student the Sunday after the quake happened. (He did make it despite the chaos, and all of my previous students were OK.) It was the worst I've felt since 9/11.

    I'm rambling, but the basic point is the passion runs pretty deep. :)

    Wish I would have had more time to chat with you at the con. :/

  3. One other comment: Loving that C-ute is on FaceBook. Hope it isn't too much longer before we see an official Berryz and Buono page. ;D
