For those of you who have followed the girls on instagram, you’ll already know that SweetS had a mini reunion. Aki is recently married and is pregnant. At her wedding reception in Tokyo, she and the other girls performed some SweetS songs. As it was a private event, I don’t know that we can hope to see the performance. Honestly, this picture of all of the girls together and the videos that were posted of them is enough for me. It’s clear that while life has gone on since SweetS, 2003-2006 really did mean so much to these girls. They’re still clearly all best friends. I love seeing this!

Also, Miori made an instagram post about the event. While the other girls have been very vocal about their past (minus perhaps Haruna), Miori has been very quiet about her time in SweetS. I’m not sure if it was a contract issue, or if she just wanted to simply make a name for herself without SweetS. Perhaps both, or perhaps it was just difficult to mention those precious times in her life. Either way, it was oddly touching to see her post about being reunited on stage with her friends.

SweetS will always have a special place in my heart. It’s touching to see that it has such a place in theirs as well. Five hearts that beat as one!

Below are videos that were posted on instagram of the girls as they rehearsed for the performance. It’s too darn touching to watch them goof around and be silly in a studio. It’s like things never changed or ended.

 

Outside of SweetS:
Aki: Married and expecting a child! So very exciting. I’m very happy for her.

Aya: Still is maintaining a private life, so I’m not sure what she’s up to. She doesn’t really remain active on social media (that I know of).

Haruna: Also remaining private. She looks happy an healthy and that’s all that matters. Also, she styled the girls’ hair for the performance, so I can only hope she’s still a hair stylist like she wants.

Mai: Yuigadokuson is still very strong! They seem to be sticking with the idol sound and persona. That’s not my style, but it seems to work for Mai. She remains very active with her other group members. She also does modeling and promotes honda bikes.

Miori: Sadly, LAGOON has disbanded. I’m not sure what’s next for her music career. She still remains active as an actress.

LAGOON release: 『bokutachi no mainichi ga eien ni naru.』
