Good evening. It’s Murai Yu (2023.07.03)



Good evening, everyone 🌙



Thank you for your hard work today ☺︎



I’m 18 years old Murai Yu from Tokyo!



I’m continuing from Itoha!

Before the lesson the other day, Itoha imitated my movements, and she was so funny, cute, and adorable





Changing the subject,

it’s July now, isn’t it?


To think that half of the year has already passed…




Speaking of which,

I applied for the audition one year ago on this day
On the 4th of July



It’s deeply moving to think that a year has passed since then



To be honest, I was very undecided whether to apply or not until the last day of the application.


The reason why I was undecided,
was because I wondered if it’s okay for someone like me, who just learned about Sakurazaka, to apply.




And at that time,
I saw the blog Ten-san wrote about the audition.




She wrote,


“To everyone who is still undecided


Because nothing will start unless you apply.

If you have even the slightest interest in Sakurazaka46,

I’d be happy if you could apply”


At that time, those words gave me the push to apply


Ten-san, truly thank you very much ☺︎



And I am also very grateful to my mother, who encouraged me to take the audition.



I’m truly glad to have joined Sakurazaka 🌸

There was a meet & greet yesterday!


In this single, I’m able to participate in 4 sessions.



Those who I met after a long while,
those I newly met,


I was happy to be able to talk with a lot of people ☺︎


I’m very happy to be able to chat with all of you~ ♡



Truly, thank you very much!




Here’s a picture from yesterday’s meet & greet!


I made two hair buns at the bottom, and put on butterfly and flower hair clips

( Though it might be hard to see from the picture… )


I was happy to hear everyone saying how cute it was~



We started to be able to do hair arrangements from this single’s meet & greet!

I’d like to try on different hair styles~~





⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰





And then,

6th Single “Start over!”

is currently on sale!


Everyone, are you enjoying it?




3rd gen members received the coupling song of “Anthem time”.


I really like the lyrics for “Anthem time”.




The part of the lyrics that go,

“Until that distant day you graduate
Let me be there to see it all through”


in particular touched my heart.



For me who just joined, “graduation” is something that is still far away in the future and unimaginable,

But I think that it’ll be wonderful if I could continue to be with everyone who cheers for me

until that day comes.


In this finite time that I can spend as an idol,
I’d like to cherish every day.







Next is an offshoot from “Seijaku no Boryoku”s MV



This is a picture taken of me by Airi.


During the MV filming, each member took pictures with a film camera until it was out of film.

All the pictures that appeared in the MV are taken by the members, from 3rd gen members’ perspectives.


I have other film camera pictures taken with everyone, so I hope to show them one day





⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰ ⋱⋰





Right now, the 3rd gen members are doing an individual SHOWROOM relay!

Did you see them?


Each person’s individuality comes out through the stream, and I think that you’ll be able to know all of us more deeply!


My turn is coming up…!

I’m already feeling nervous…

I hope that I can show myself as I normally am ☺︎



The next stream is on
6th July from 8pm to 9pm JST!

Who will it be?
By all means, please give it a look!!




And then,

3rd gen members made an appearance in

ViVi-san, anan-san, and CanCam-san,
all of which are currently on sale!!


Everyone, please give it a look~! 🤍





From here on, I’d like to answer questions that I received in your letters 🕯️



Q. What is your favorite cake?

A. Cheesecakes!

The combination of cheesecakes and cafe au lait is the best….! ♡



Q. Please tell me what you’ve taken lessons in so far!

A. Piano, ballet, dance, calligraphy!



Q. How long is your sleep time?

A. Even if I go to bed at midnight on my day off, I still typically wake up around 11am~12:30pm! (laughs)
Maybe sleeping so much will help me grow taller~~ 😴✨



Q. I’d like to know what you often order at cafes.

A. In general, cafe au lait or matcha latte!



Q. Is there anything that Yu-chan would like to do this Summer?

A. First of all, I’d like to meet you all even during Summer!
Other than that, I guess wearing yukata to festivals, fireworks, and glamping~!



I’m happy that you wrote questions in your letters!

I’ll be answering more in my next blog 💡






I put on my favorite butterfly hairpin and necklace 🦋

I tried putting on makeup on my own~~!





That’s all for today!

Thank you very much for reading ☺︎




Tomorrow’s blog is Miu’s!

Even among the 3rd gen members
Miu and I both eat fast and eat a lot

Delicious foods are our reason for living!




Well then, everyone please take care of yourself and stay healthy~
