Dead Tired.....

I'm so worn out~.

Lately, that's become my favorite phrase.

We're going straight through with play practice and the time we practice is growing.

It seems like every time I have to start back at point zero. I'm troubled, I cry, I laugh, and I get angry....

I'm a typical living and breathing human being. That fact is, this is good!!

Anza Jp Blog 11/25/07

Oh. it has to be....

The neck pain I got from the car crash is gone. I'm fine!! I'm sorry if I made you worry.

Everyday the weather is so cold. It seems like this is the season for looking back and thinking about things in your past. Don't you agree?

It seems like the people you meet are the ones who really become important to you. So, I think the cold weather is useful despite the way it oppresses you.

For myself, I think no way that it only started getting cold on the 20th....

However, when you become an adult you use common sense and different clever techniques to deal with the harsh situations. You don't want to cry because the cold weather is pushing you around and you think, "I'm helpless". I wonder if people would think of you as adult if you didn't tough it out. ?

Laughing is good for you. You become accustomed to the cold eventually. Don't you think? Hey! Is this happiness? (heart)?


I'm a bit sketchy on that last part. I felt it was all about the weather and I went that way with it.

Folie A Deux

Anza JP 11/23/07

Oh! ~ Oh!

There are three things I've been doing everyday. First is musical practice, then Album promotion, finally there's data collection.

I'm so thankful to have the experiences of two different people..... Sometimes I have the face of an actress, and other times I have the face of a band vocalist. Sometimes I don't know which is whch. (laugh) Is this what I do for fun? ?

Today, (the 22nd) when I finished work, the manager and I had come to a stop at a red light on the drive back to my home......then from behind at car rear ended us_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ !!!!When the collision took place, I didn't know for a moment, "What has happened"????

I had to check my condition. Hey, my neck is a bit's alright, I think.....I'll go for a check up at the hospital early in the morning


I guess Anza was the passenger. I doesn't sound like she saw anyone coming in the rear view mirror. I don't know if Anza drives, but I imagine she would have a lead foot. lol

Anza HPP Diary 11/20/07

Something like that.

Hey! It got cold. Don't you think?

Not only is it cold, but are we going to get snow?

I'm wondering if I should get my snowboard off the shelf and polish it up. (I'm ready for it)

It's hard to keep up the appearance of a mature adult, especially when there's fun to be had.

Hypocrisy, that's enough bullsh*t for today. I'm just not used to complying with the rules of an absolute adult. I's emotional stuff.

Anza JP Blog 11/17/07


When I got back to the house today I collapsed into my chair feeling all worn out.

How many years old am I? However, I know the answer to that.(laugh)

No!! Now wait.... I'm not just physically tired from all the's partly mental fatigue.

Everyday life back in Japan has taken on a serious aspect in earnest. But hey! I'd be a fool to cry over it.

Today (the 17th) my belly became really hunger. That being the case, the manager came by to try my noodles.

Chinese food and Taiwan cuisine are spiced totally differently. As I thought, they are spiced differently according to the tastes of the country that produces it. Each kind has a wonderful taste to be sure.


Anza should open up a restaurant. Noodles and energy drinks! Just kidding.

Anza JP Blog 11/16/07

Actors here!!

It's an unusal everyday update renewal!!

Is it going to storm tomorrow? (laugh)

Today was passed with fine weather. Still, I have laundry to do and I'm reluctant to begin....I came back from Los Angeles with my laundry basket overflowing. (laugh)

With practice over, HPP member Hiro and the manager have taken me out to an Italian restaurant where the food is extremely delicious!! But, time is still blurry from jet lag. (laugh)

The photo is with two nice guys who co-star with me in The Gift. Last year, the officer role was with Manabu Oda. (Manabu Bee-oh) ?

This year, Nirou Takashi has a role with officer Hiroshi Watanabe You (I-chan)?

Both are kind and wonderful actors.


I still haven't downloaded the names software, so I'm not sure about those two lines. Hopefully, the names are right, but I don't know which is which.

Anza JP Blog and HPP Diary 11/15/07

Returned to my own country. (music note)

I've returned to Japan safe and sound. The live in Los Angeles was the best. But, the muscle pain after an energetic show is awful....

Even though I had an extremely hard schedule to keep up with, I still found the time to take a trip to Disneyland. There wasn't time for a slow restful visit for pleasure, but it was enjoyable nevertheless!

For the attraction of Finding Nemo I stood in a long line because it was something they don't have in Japan. (laugh)

I also did some shopping and purchased this plush toy. (piglet)

There's been a date change, but tomorrow I begin to concentrate on The Gift practice.

HPP Diary

Passport Stamp!

My first live show in Los Angeles took me by surprise. For real! In spite of the fact that it was the first time for many of you to get the chance to come and see me. I was happy.

The overseas crowds like to cheer and shout and you can't help but to take it all in. Although, as pleasant as it may be, I'm still a little shy from all the attention.....

We also had our first group autograph session. Surprisingly, all the members felt quite at home.

We did many interviews with reporters who collected lot's of data. So look for an endless stream of reports and charged up news articles!

Narumi, update your diary, please? (laugh)

Really.....get with the program!!!!!


I got to ask Anza a few question about Disneyland after the PMX HPP Fan Panel. She said her favorite rides were Finding Nemo and Pirates of the Carribean. She didn't get to take the Peter Pan ride. I forgot to ask her if she went on the Haunted House.

Anza JP Blog 11/8/07

Let me see....

I'm completely wiped out and I need to sleep. (laugh) When you put it off for so long your entire body screams.....

However, I like to push myself more and more to chase after my dream. Why should I ease up when I'm so close to my goal?

There are so many things that can hurt you. Little things can also be very painful....
Because of this you feel like howling in desperation. Still, I feel that it's a real part of life for any human.

Do my best~! Those are the words that appear inside The Gift. You feel better and get energy when you say it to your close friends.

Now, I'm getting ready for my Los Angeles departure. Preparations....they are nowhere near being done. (laughing)


I got a couple days off, so I'll try to catch up on Anza's Blogs. I was trying to download a names dictionary from rikaichan. That should make my translations more accurate. However, I'm having trouble getting my computer to download it, That's what has been taking up my time.

Anza HPP Diary 11/8/07

"See you later"

After I post this diary, I'm off to Los Angeles. (laugh)

After a long time of not performing live, I wonder in what way it'll turn out. We'll see, I guess....

It'll be a large struggle to shine brightly. At least that's how it feels.

Surely, Hiro will begin Los Angeles renewals for his Blog. I'm pretty sure...

Soon, Narumi will also resume his LA renewals, right? Otherwise, I'll have to get unpleasant and make him do it against his will. (laughing)

Good Bye.

We're done!!

The band successfully finished recording the Album!! Well, I was completely frazzled. But, we managed to complete a good work.

And then, we dive head long into promotion activity. Everyday, we're doing data collecting for magazines and newspapers. I feel like I'm becoming a real motor mouth. (laugh)

And tomorrow, after a date change....we go to Los Angeles on the 8th.

After a long time without a live show, I'm ready to scream my head off!!

At any rate, we'll have no less than an hour to do our stage show....

I'm taking the nutrition drink Toda with me from Japan because they don't carry it in the States. Good idea! Don't you think? (laughing)

And then, practice for "The Gift" starts to take off. Also, I wasn't able to participate in the soundtrack recording because I was short on time. Which makes me feel a little insecure.

But, when everyone is together, I'm growing accustomed to more natural make-up just like my character Ayaka. Kinda strange. Perhaps I'm used to using more.....?

As for me, I hope I'm up for the task to prepare for LA....


Sorry for taking so long to get back to these translations since PMX. I've had nothing but car troubles to deal with for days. I think that's behind me and I hope I can catch up with Anza in a day or two.

Anza HPP Diary 11/6/07 Tues. *Edit 11/13*


*I removed the pic that I had posted from Mar's Mixi page. He didn't want anyone to post his pics for other uses without his permission.

Thanks to Akira for telling me, and my apologies to Mar.*

At Last

I've finished recording. Sometimes I felt that the time I spent there was excessive, but to succeed I had the difficult battle of sleeplessness to overcome. (laugh)

We went two years without issuing a new Album. Since then, the band members have had lot's of different experiences that transformed their ideas and expectations.

And I had bottled up lot's of thoughts that exploded out giving us plenty to record...after my last birthday it was a welcome feeling.

The band is like your extended family, sometimes you act like a fool and quarrel over trivial things. But, through it all, you learn to rely on each other to get the job done.

When I look back over my own life, there are many things I wish I had done differently.

But two things make me extremely happy. My role as a member of HPP and having a manager who's a joy to work with.

And through music, a type of universal language, you can communicate with the fans (circle of friends) no matter where they're from.

Tomorrow, again, I'll try my best!

Today, I'll sleep. (laugh)


This will probably be my last Anza translation for a while. I have to get ready to go to LA to see HPP at the PMX Expo. So, I probably won't have time to work on anything else.

I'll probably do a lot of updates from LA when I get there on Thursday.
