She's also going to be part of the Morning Musume Tanjou 10nen Kinentai tour which starts in mid August. I am very interested to see what songs they'll be performing, as even though their 2nd single comes out two days before the tour (8/8) that only gives them about four songs of their own. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait for the DVD on that one -- the only tour dates after I arrive are too far for me to travel. :(
This community is unfortunately not updated enough to keep up with all of the Maki news there is, but I'd really like to fix this! She was recently in a stage play, Yokosuka Story, in April. The DVD for it comes out 6/27. I'm really interested in seeing this. She performed the main song, which is an older pop song, on Uta Doki and I really like it. Apparently her newest single Secret was performed for the play as well.
That's it for now!
