Fandom Enlightening the World: The Welcome ANGERME Project

May 18, 2017

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled content with a Fan Project Boost Alert! The subject of this is a public service announcement regarding a fan project hosted by monkiipop.

Long story short, the aim of this project is to show ANGERME that yes, their desire to perform overseas isn’t so pie-in-the-sky and there are fans who would love to see them.

monkiipop hopes to make a video of the many contributions and no matter how you participate, you must include “Welcome to [country name]!” in your language. Written, spoken, “made out of letter balloons,” it doesn’t matter how it’s written.

There are four options in joining the projects but you can choose a maximum of two:

  • A short video that is not more than 25 seconds. Singing, dancing, speaking, holding a sign, showcasing your country, anything goes, as long as it’s respectful! You can also hide your face if you so wish.
  • A photo utilizing the same rules.
  • A drawing.
  • A brief message on a piece of paper that is sent as a photo/drawing. (monkiipop would rather not have the video filled with just writing though.)

You can submit your content via email ( or Twitter DM (@monkiipop), but be sure to do so by June 18, the end of September 2017 your local time!

The video will be uploaded in early July on monkiipop’s channel so it can be seen and shared by as many people as possible (aka everyone!). It’ll also be sent to UP-FRONT LINK so it’ll be able to reach ANGERME.

Be sure to share this project with as many fans as you can!

A Sallying Forth Project About Maho

January 19, 2017

Greetings, Citizens of the Universe!

Sometime on Tuesday, I came across the following tweet:

Needless to say, I felt it to be important to spread awareness regarding this project. It will also go on the bulletin board widget on the Sidebar.

A project is being arranged by Japanese fans to send messages of support to Aikawa Maho, who is currently on hiatus for panic disorder. The project organizer has also sent confirmation that overseas fans can participate as well.
You can participate in three ways:

  • Twitter Route: Tweet/DM @aiai_birthday18 (the project’s Twitter account) with your name, country, and message
  • Google Form Route: Fill in the Google form here:
  • Image Route: Write your name, country, and message on the provided picture card. However, if you so choose this method, you must send it back as a 91x55mm image.

Regardless of whatever method you choose, bear in mind these things:

  • You can write your message in English or Japanese and you are welcome to “add some words of your own language if you would like too [sic].”
  • Your message must be short as it will be placed on the small cards, which will then be placed in an album.
  • Your submission is due March 17th Japan time.

I hope you consider participating and showing Aikawa Maho the support she needs. Being an idol can be hard on the mind and a good support system is important in times like these.

Until the next time!
