Oh My Girl

Standard

11-year-old Mikan-chan has a “stone” in the bladder. It could force her to go into the restroom over and over, sometimes to bleed a little. Veterinarian Dr. O recommends an operation to remove the stone, yet he adds that there is no guarantee to avoid the disease forever …

Headaches

Standard

Mei-Shun caught a cold. A slight fever, stomachaches, a sore throat and running nose, sleepiness … might be among the worst happenings in preparation for a stage performance. She only hopes that accumulated training so far works well.

Kimono Reminds…

Standard

Master Mei-Shu gave Mei-Shun a kimono, beautifully purple-colored. It is just in size of the latter, looks a bit too long for you, Master … it might be the one her eldest sister, Mei-Shu I, wore in her days.

Great Grapes

Standard

Last year’s heavy snow destroyed many greenhouses for fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, outdoor trees were powerful enough to survive, allowed Mei-Shun family to enjoy such beautiful products this autumn as well.

Mikan-Mochi

Standard

As it gets cooler, Mikan-chan often jumps onto Mei-Shun’s legs. Relaxed, sitting on her own legs, she looks like a piece of mochi =rice cake. This is the reason why she is sometimes called Omochi-chan.

Difficult = Damaging?

Standard

Mei-Shun has a slight pain in her right knee. While doing lighter exercise yesterday, she found out several poses in Echigo-Shishi which might cause the ache. For example, it is quite difficult for her to put both knees on the ground at once. Trying to force herself to make it, she might use a wrong, unnecessary muscle power.
