Fujimoto Miki Models For “a.g. plus”

3 06 2011

Fujimoto Miki models for “a.g. plus”.

At first I though it was a modeling agency, I thought that she might be going towards modeling for her career. However after checking out the website a bit the company is actually a clothing company.

I like a lot of the outfits Mikitty poses with, it’s a mature-casual type outfit and it works really well with her. Even the photos taken have a mature-casual type feel them, I think it’s mainly because of the colors of the photo that gives it this feel.

There is a photo gallery with about 10 photos for fans to enjoy on the site. I highly recommend all fans check them out since I don’t know how much longer they’ll be featured on the website.

Here’s a couple photos for now:

Fujimoto Miki- Promoting Scalp-D Shampoo

1 06 2011


Fujimoto Miki is promoting Scalp-D Shampoo.

While the work isn’t too exciting I’m glad to see that’s she’s trying some different work out there. From the photo gallery it looks like if she’s promoting the shampoo through a talk event but maybe afterwards a commercial comes out with Mikitty in it. I also wanted to say that the Mikitty’s white dress is really beautiful on her and it matches the event since everything is pink and white.

Here’s some pictures from the event:

It’s different from what we’re use to seeing of Mikitty but please continue to support Mikitty any way you can!

Fujimoto Miki To Open Up A Restaurant

24 02 2011

Fujimoto Miki has opened up a Yakiniku restaurant in Yokohama.

According to Miki all of the menu will be 99% off as a special discount on opening day.

After Yaguchi announced the opening of her restaurant a few months ago I somewhat expected to see other members follow into the restaurant business and set up their own places as well, and I’m glad to see that Miki did since fans can enjoy a great meal while showing their support at the same time.

The offer at opening day with 99% off seems incredibly tempting and it was most likely done to attract customers and make sure everyone gets a chance to try the Yakiniku so that they become regular customers, and I’m happy to see that they decided to offer the discount since everyone can go and try out the food without having to worry about paying that much to sample.

Hopefully fans around the area get a chance to attend the opening event for the restaurant since the offer is too good to pass up.

The restaurant will open on 2/26.

Morning Musume OG Concert Tour 2011 Announced

24 12 2010

A concert tour for Morning Musume OG titled Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Haru no Mai ~Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~ has been announced.

Acording to the announcement Nakazawa Yuko, Iida Kaori, Abe Natsumi, Yasuda Kei, Yaguchi Mari, Ishikawa Rika, Yoshizawa Hitomi, Tsuji Nozomi, Ogawa Makoto, Fujimoto Miki, and Kusumi Koharu will be participating in the concert tour (basically everyone except Konno Asami).

I’m glad to see that they decided to do a Morning Musume OG tour since it has been a while since we last saw them perform together, and while Konno won’t be able to perform (most likely because she is busy at training for her TV Tokyo announcer job) it will most likely be a great tour for all OG fans since we will be able to see most of OG performing H!P classics.

We don’t know what the setlist may contain but it will most likely have many solo songs from each one of the solo artists (Nakazawa, Iida, Abe, Yaguchi, and Fujimoto) as well as some group performances, which should be very interesting to see since we will get a chance to hear many great songs being performed by OG members.

For now we don’t know what to expect from the tour, but hopefully OG fans buy their tickets to enjoy this unique and impressing concert tour when it starts in April.

The concert will feature the following dates:

Date Venue Concert starts
04/23 Chuukyou Daigaku Bunka Shimin Kaikan Aurora Hall 15:00 / 18:30
05/01 Amagasaki Shi Sougou Bunka Sentaru Kaikkunoru 14:30 / 18:00
05/04 Nakano Sun Plaza 15:00 / 18:30
05/05 Nakano Sun Plaza 14:00 / 18:00

Fujimoto Miki’s Father Has Passed Away

11 11 2010

Fujimoto Miki’s father has passed away on the morning of November 10 due to unknown causes.

Here is a translation of the Sanpso article (translation done by gator_yoong at aramathedidnt):

Singer Fujimoto Miki (25)’s father passed away on the morning of the 10th in a hospital in Hokkaido. The cause of death is unknown. The unexpected news of the death shocked both Fujimoto and her mother.

According to sources, Fujimoto’s mother and father had been living apart, her mother lives in the city.

Fujimoto got married last year on July 11th to comedian Shouji Tomoharu (34). They had their wedding ceremony with just their families on July 3rd at Hokulia in Hawaii. Fujimoto’s father was present and was able to see his daughter in a wedding dress.

Fujimoto is from Hokkaido and auditioned for Morning Musume in 2000, she then moved to Tokyo. She’s active as an actress and singer. She also has a happy private life. Fujimoto will adjust her schedule and head to Hokkaido for the funeral service.

The news is very unexpected to say the least since I didn’t expect to hear about the death of another member of an H!P member’s family so soon after the death of Goto’s mom, but as was mentioned on the Sanspo article the news came as a shock to everyone.

I would like to offer my condolences to the Fujimoto family during these hard times.

For now there aren’t that many details about the cause of death, but we should see more reports being released during the next few days so I will update when they are released.

New Promotional Unit “Afternoon Musume” Announced

7 09 2010

A new promotional unit for Georgia coffee drinks titled Afternoon Musume δ has been announced.

They will sing an original song titled Gouhoubi no Afternoon Coffee. The unit consists of:

  • Nakazawa Yuko
  • Iida Kaori
  • Abe Natsumi
  • Yasuda Kei
  • Yaguchi Mari
  • Fujimoto Miki
  • Ogawa Makoto

I’m glad to see that there are more promotional units being made within UFA for various popular products and since this one consists of OG members it is a bit more special since we haven’t seen them work together as a group in quite some time.

Since the promotion is for one of the most popular drinks in Japan (according to Wikipedia) it is without a doubt a great chance for them to promote themselves and their personalities to the public as a group.

The CM features Afternoon Musume members in a slightly old fashioned building where they provide Georgia Coffee drinks to some actors who are resting, and I have to admit that I liked it since it was calm and made me want to try some (which is the point of the CM).

As for the song it is basically just Morning Coffee in a slower Enka style (which might be the reason why the unit is called Afternoon Musume), and even though that may be the case I like how it sounds since it matches the theme of the CM.

Hopefully the promotional group releases the song in some way (either digitally or single) and even if they don’t I still love how the CM looks since all of the members fit right in with the theme.

Miki posted an apology to everyone on her blog:

It seems that Fujimoto’s car only bumped the taxi which is great news for everyone since no one was injured. From her apology you can tell that she is sincerely sorry for the incident, so hopefully she is a bit more careful when driving in the future and isn’t involved in any more accidents.

Fujimoto Miki Is Officially Married

11 07 2009

Fujimoto Miki 125346

It was officially revealed that Fujimoto Miki is now married to longtime boyfriend, Shouji Shinagawa, the couple married in Hawaii this July. First of all, congratulations to the happy couple! It was suspected that Miki was already in Hawaii earlier this July because of this photo on her blog:

Fujimoto Miki 12354432

The image is dated 7/5, and in it we see Miki posing with a Hawaii cup, the ring she has on is probably the engagement ring. Nevertheless I wish the couple a long marriage, congratulations Mikitty!

Edit: This article mentions that the couple was married on 7/3, so the picture above of Miki holding the cup is after their wedding, so the ring is probably the wedding ring.





Fujimoto Miki In Japan Festa 2009

27 04 2009

3357482533x800

Fujimoto is set to perform in Japan Festa in Bangkok, which will occur in August (credit to lovemusic @ H!O for the info). The information right now is kind of scarce, all we know is that she will perform sometime in August in Bangkok, and that is pretty much it, hopefully we can get some more info as time passes.

It’s great to see that she is also one of those Elder Club members who is doing something, apart from getting married. Those of you who are Miki fans might consider going to this, mainly because it might not occur again (most likely it will, but you never know). Hopefully she can perform some of her solo songs, or maybe she will get a new single by that time, but all we can do now is guess. The link below is from the coordinators blog about the event (I guess, my Japanese isn’t that great), so if you know Japanese you might want to check on that entry, let’s hope she has success, good luck Mikitty!

Fujimoto Miki To Get Married

24 03 2009

20090324-00000525-sanspo-ent-thum-000

Fujimoto and her boyfriend Shouji are to be married, not much is known because I can’t read the Japanese articles, but the headline is that Fujimoto Miki is getting married! But from the shortness of the article I would speculate that much is known either by the news, the only thing I could make out is that Shouji is 33 and that Fujimoto is 24. I’ll update with more information when it becomes available. There are two links to news articles about them down there, Congrats Miki!

Former Momusu Mikitty & Shouji Tomoharu
to Wed This Summer

On March 24th, it was announced that ex-Morning Musume leader Fujimoto Miki (24) and comedian Shouji Tomoharu from comedy duo Shinagawa Shouji will complete their 2-year-long relationship with a wedding in July. Currently they are scheduling the ceremony day and other necessities. Fujimoto’s agency confirmed the wedding news for our publication.

The agency sent us a fax entitled “The Engagement Report”. Within it, Fujimoto explains her joy about her engagement with Shouji, saying, “I’m really happy I met someone who helps me grow, and we really understand and support each other. I would be really happy if you could give us your warm support from now on.”

Fujimoto plans to continue with her career, but will prioritize her family.

Furthermore, Shouji’s agency published his comment. Being obviously very happy, Shouji said, “I’ve been captivated by Miki’s kindness and straightforward personality, so I decided it’s about time to seal this almost 2-year-long relationship with a wedding. From now on, we plan to clasp our hands and work hard towards reaching happiness together.”

Also, neither of the two plan to open a press conference regarding this engagement.
