Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Happy Birthday Sakura!

Japan is 12 hours ahead of me, so I want to be the first in my time zone to wish my daughter Sakura Miyawaki, a HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY!

SOMEONE sure had a big growth spurt this year! What happened to that bony, monkey-eared little elf? It seems like only yesterday I was fixing her bicycle and bandaging her skinned knees.

“Sakura, you may be 18 now, but if you are going to live in my house — you are going to have to follow my rules …”

(Denny’s reverie ends)… Aye — I would be a great father for this other-worldly talented young Idol — not that she needs my help, or could be improved upon.

Sakura makes shopping for greens so much more enjoyable!

What she adds to HKT48 is one thing, but she is also a good role model, and is a person of good moral character*. I have noticed (even with the delays via starlight), that she has matured in height and stability this past year. Sakura-tan is easily one of my favorite idols. She is a great team player in HKT48, but I would also love to see more solo singing from her.

(Denny sits down, takes off cap, sighs:) Whew …


Guess who is hiding in the cake!

  3. Whenever you get to witness an idol grow up in front of the camera eye since their early youth, it always hits you when they’re suddenly an adult… like where does the time go? And Sakura’s definitely matured so much in past couple of years. Happy belated Birthday~♥!~!!
