Blog post from Yamashita Nanami

Editors’ forenote:

In truth, I really got to liking Wake up, Girls! only recently. You can call it a session of brainwash by all the videos that the community put up, by people around me, but I can’t deny the sadness from the abrupt news this morning.

I have never translated a blog before, but I wanted to do it even if it’s something small compared to the rest of the community.


Blog starts here

Thank you for your hard work this week, everyone!

Yamashita Nanami here.

Today, we had to deliver an important information.
From now until next year’s March, the 7 of us will run with all our strength.

I guess many people have already read about it but,
together with the comments from the official site,
the voices of the members of WUG,
I will publish them together along with my own thoughts.


To the fans who have always been supporting us

Thank you for always supporting the seiyuu unit 「Wake Up, Girls!」

Just the other day welcomed our 5th anniversary as a unit.
We could not have made it here without everyone’s support.
We say this from the bottom of our hearts.

Today, there’s an important news we have to let everyone know.

Seiyuu unit 「Wake Up, Girls!」will be disbanding in March 2019.

In the 5 years of time we had, we took part in many different activities,
when we talked about the future dreams of each of the members,
talked about it many times with everyone and the management staff,
It is decided that walking on separate ways would be better for the growth of the members, and that disbanding the unit was the decision made.

To all the fans who have supported us this far,
we want to reach you with our gratitude,
together with all the members and the staff,
we want to hold a FINAL TOUR fitting for everyone.

This way, we can welcome March 2019 in our Wake Up, Girls!’s style.

The WUG project will continue its development.
Also, the members will be continuing their individual activities as seiyuus,
so please continue to support them.

We will be counting on everyone’s support for 「Wake Up, Girls!」until the end.


Next, will be comments from the members.


Yoshioka Mayu

I’m really sorry for the sudden announcement.
Thankfully, we are able to perform lots of lives on our tour.
The 7 of us will present our best stage until the very end.
I can’t really put it down in words, so I’ll show my feelings on the stage.
Please let us return this kindness to everyone.

Eino Airi

To everyone who has been supporting us,
I’m really grateful. Thank you.
Sakura will blossom every year. No matter when, they will always stand out strongly, beautifully. They won’t give in to the rain nor wind.
I would be happy if we can make the sakura blossom together.

Tanaka Minami

WUG as a unit for the past 5 years, have received many important things.
From now on, each of us will walk on different journeys.
I’ll be happy if everyone can continue to support the WUG I love so much from now on.
Let’s give our first-rate smile and dash together until next year!

Takagi Miyu

For Wake Up, Girls!, thanks to the support from all of the WUGners,
we were able to create a story together. That’s why it’ll be a blessing if we could get through the finale with the smiles of all 7 of us, together with the WUGners and everyone involved…♪

Beginning with the FINAL TOUR, I will look forward to the activities from now! Thank you for your support.


Thank you for reading.

Really thank you for the stage and Rakuten event.
Recently, we have been able to meet on continuous days,
I was able to see all the WUGners’ smiles more often than usual.
More than anything else, for being there for us, gave me overflowing love and goodness.
We really received so much support.

I’m thankful from the bottom of my heart.

The feelings I want to deliver to the WUGners as soon as the stage play ended,
I talked about it on All Night Nippon i.
I hope that it reached everyone…!

And then, after the stage play ended,
I got to see my grandma whom I’ve not met for a long time.
I’ll talk about this next week on next week’s blog!

In order to meet everyone here after 1 week,
I will do my best from tomorrow!!

Next week on the blog!! See you!!
