水樹奈々 – 第61回NHK紅白歌合戦 への出場が決定いたしましたっっ!!! [Mizuki Nana, translation]

Looks like getting my driver’s license isn’t the only good news today (or yesterday as it it past 12am now XD).

According to Nana-san’s blog post as of November 24 (and other sources such as this)…

Nana-san will be participating in the 61st Kouhaku Uta Gassen!

Translation of Mizuki Nana’s blog post on November 24, 2010

Compact Nana! XD [Mizuki Nana, Smile-Gang]

水樹奈々 スマイルギャング第451回【デジラジ音源】

Nana-san mentioned a recent experience she had that I find somewhat interesting (though Nana-san found it “kanashii”. ^^;; I can’t say I don’t how she feels.

To make a long story short, she was in a store when she heard two girls saying, “Hey, isn’t that Mizuki Nana?” Probably not wanting to make a fuss, she headed for the exit but couldn’t avoid the two girls. When they made eye contact, Nana-san wondered if she should say something (or if they’ll say something to her) when one of the girls said, “That can’t be her. This girl is tiny!”
And so, dejectedly, Nana-san left the store without a word… 😄

Misato affirms afterward that Nana-san does look different (size-wise) through media when compared to her real person. In fact, when Nana-san takes off her shoes (during recordings), she is surprisingly “small.” That’s because the heel of her shoes average about 10cm (4 inches). People joke about her compactness. XDD

Should I take pride in the fact that I’m short, but at least I’m still taller than Nana-san? 😄 <–I joke, of course. 😄
