Very much surprised and interested to see where this goes. A-chan seems to be stepping out of Perfume quite a bit lately....

She's expressed a desire to write before but Nakata wouldn't let her. As for doing these other activities I wonder if she's doing them because she's worried about the problem with her foot and wonders how long she'll actually be physically able to be in Perfume You can see they try to make allowances like giving her shoes with lower and thicker heels but maybe she's just covering all bases, she's always been a forward thinker.

You're right. I'm very glad to see her having a chance to write, like she wanted to, and I'm sure she is thinking ahead regardless of what else may be going on.
I must admit, though, that I didn't know that her foot problem was that severe; I hope she can recover or at least work to not push herself very hard (as she is and has always been the backbone of Perfume), but her own health is more important.

She still has this foot problem? I thought she recovered after the operation of 2010 :shock:
About the song is she going to sing it with porno graffiti or is she just going to write lyrics?
I'm really curious about the kind of lyrics she will write

I'm pretty sure the problem is still there, i think she mentioned it recently? Not sure about that, might be confusing it with the Triangle Tour booklet translation that went up recently. Or maybe i've assumed, i did notice in the first set of songs for the L3 show she was wearing a lower and thicker heel and guessed it was down to her injury.

She's just co-writing the song, then everyone performing at the event sings it together and the end of the day.

As far as I can remember, she's always had the roughest time with her feet and dancing in heels; her shoes have been the lowest and thickest heeled for a long time as well. So while she might not currently have an injury, once you mess up a part of your body like that it generally tends to stay not quite right. (I don't even want to consider the possible arthritic issues she and the other two could end up with from these long years of performing in high heels...)

Here's her comment on the BBQ theme, translated courtesy of K-10 and taken via here (you can go to the source to read more about the collab):

Haruichi-san mailed me to talk about writing the lyrics for this year’s Tsumagoi song. I was so grateful for this offer and absolutely wanted to accept it, but I was uncertain as it would be my first time writing lyrics. However, he told me “That’s perfectly fine — we’ll work on it together, so I want you to write them! There’s meaning to A~chan being the one who writes these” and that really gave me courage, so, heart shaking, I got on board with my seniors’ powerful message to create a heartwarming live experience full of hope and bring even just a little strength to the areas affected by the disaster with this song. My first try at writing lyrics was honestly difficult. I couldn’t fit everything I wanted to say into the amount of notes in the song; how much time have I spent going on and on for as long as I want during [Perfume's] concerts… was what I found myself reflecting on… _| ̄|○ That’s how few of words those who write lyrics are. And they’re romantic. It’s wonderful. Haruichi-san: I learned so very much. I’m thankful to my seniors who gave me this chance. I’m truly looking forward to singing it with everyone on the day of the concert at Tsumagoi.
