(Thanks in advance for forgiving my very loose and limited translation please feel free to add corrections and stuff {it would help me out too!})

From diary:





I have an announcement today.

I, Hashimoto Eriko, and tacica's Igari Shouichi, have been married since 2010.
And now, within my belly a new life is being grown. I'm in my 6th month of pregnancy.
Everyone, even from now, please warmly look after us.

On a related note, even as Chatmonchy's leader, I should be able to reveal this, so please wait.
I'm looking forward to it.

Hashimoto Eriko










At this time, a very joyous development has occurred for Chatmonchy.

Inside my partner ecchan's belly, a small life has been lodged.

Though I've known her for a long time, I'm still completely surprised.

Since I'm surprised by this news, it's not hard to guess how surprised everyone else is by this (laugh).

Ecchan is going to be a mother.
Not only will this enrich the world of our band, it presents a positive premonition for an even brighter future for girl's band [not sure if referring to bands in general or their own sorry].

Of course, this is ecchan we're talking about, so she'll probably boldly take on childcare in her own unique way.
I'll be there to support her, so don't worry!

Anyway, this wonderful development will surely breathe new life into our music as well.

From now on, please accept our best wishes, even though we've surprised you like this.

And ecchan, congratulations on NINSHIN [pregnancy]!!

For readability I put all related things in this separate post. I don't mean to spam this thread, but I'll merge into a giant post if any mod demands it.

From Igari's diary:






I have been blessed with a child.

This news comes late, but in 2010 I married Chatmonchy's Hashimoto Eriko.
Which brings us to today.

I still do not yet fully understand what it means to be rewarded with a new life, but I will face this with everything I have.

If you might kindly, warmly watch over us, I would be happy.


From kumikon's (:D) twitter:




I have no idea what she's trying to say in the first 2 sentences of the first one (though I can tell she's still talking in classic kumikon fashion lol), but she ends it with "give birth to a cute baby! Good luck/try your best, ecchan!!"

And in the second one (which was posted earlier) she simply says "Yay!! Congratulations, ecchan!!"

From Goo News:




Girl's rock band Chatmonchy's Hashimoto Eriko, and rock band tacica's Igari Shouichi were married in 2010, revealed on the 28th. On the same day, both their official sites made the announcement, and Hashimoto is reported to be in her 6th month of pregnancy. According to Hashimoto's affiliated office, she will continue with her musical activity without taking maternity leave, and after giving birth she will resume musical activity.
[Then it quotes her diary.]

[Then it quotes acco's part from the diary.]

[Then it quotes Igari's diary lol.]

I really hope I translated this article correctly, as I don't want to misinform anyone on a fairly big aspect, but I'm pretty confident that it says she will not be taking maternity leave, and that she will continue with music afterwards.

Congratulations ecchan :D

I was really surprised by this today, specially because I didn't know she was even married (did they ever announce it? guess not, which is cool smile.gif). It's really awesome, congrats to ecchan!!

And thanks a lot for the translations kitkatter ^O^

PS: I think she should take a maternity leave >_< Doesn't seem very healthy to continue the activities right away

Really! Eriko-chan took me in by surprise. At first, I thought that she's single but in reality, she's married for 3 years to Igari-san! th_053_XD.gif And now, they're going to have a baby :3 wish the two of them the best of luck. Eriko-chan should take a rest since being in a 6-month pregnancy is critical and crucial for a mother to take a lot of rest smile.gif We will wait for your comeback Chatmonchy so please, Ecchan, take plenty of rest happy.gif

The way you are now.
It's okay to change.
Don't forget who you truly are.

Wow! congratulations to ecchan =DDD Really happy for her and just a few days ago I was wondering if any guy would be able to take care of her if she was still single now that she is in her 30s! Awesome news but kinda shocking that she kept it a secret for 3 years !

I'm so happy for her!! wub.gif It's really surprising that they've already been married this long. I suppose that means she was already married when I met her in Austin in 2010. laugh.gif

I kinda want to look through all my pictures from their SXSW visit and see if I can spot her husband in any. He may not have been along for the tour, but it would be cool if he did and I didn't realize who he was at the time. rolleyes.gif

When I read the news last night, yeah I felt the same, shocked, worried and happy. That mixed emotions.
To Ecchan: Wow! You're a great secret keeper and now you're bearing your first baby! Congratulations to you! I'm happy for you! :3
To Igari-san: Please take care with my Ecchan! I hope you'll be a good husband and a father. Congratulations!

Thanks for the translation. I saw an article on and using google translate came up with some interesting phrases. Was wondering what he really said when it came back with Igari pardoning the child.
