Firstly, a greeting!
Everyone, happy new year!
It’s now 2014!
The year of the horse! Is it Takagi’s era? (laugh)
When you read 2014 backwards, it’s 4102 ← Yoi Reni!
So Reni Reni World will go at full throttle-!

And here’s my thoughts about 64th Kouhaku!
I’m so grateful that we got invited for 2 consecutive years!
Aside from our own songs, we got to be back dancers for Kouzai Kaori-san together with the Hanayagi Itoyuki Troupe this year. We also supported aiko-san, and Momotakagi took part in the second sound channel too!
I was so nervous-!

My heart was racing and pounding the entire day, but thanks to everyone, we did it successfully!
And there’s more time this year to really think things through as compared to last year, in a good way of course.
That’s why I’ve got a few points to reflect on!
So this year’s start will be connected to what we felt at Kouhaku this time round!
Thank you! 2013!
It was the best new year’s, with all the staff members and Maa-kun!
Then, we did the live broadcast at Nippon Broadcasting, then morning UStream!
It’s full-out right on new year’s day itself-!

Let’s dash through this year together while gazing upon lots of sceneries!
Please support us (^-^)
