The S/mileage Nippon Budokan show
What should I say
I’m an empty shell, an empty shell.
So a big venue concert feels like this（ ; ・; ） It’s like a play （ ;・; ）
For a long time, the members and staff have been practicing a lot
for this one day
and the curtains finally opened,
but when they did
it all went by so fast…
It was all gone in an instant.
The moment I stood on stage the tears started flowing out (T . T)
The first song was aMa no jaku so really, yeah.. lol
It was our indies debut song, and it’s packed with a ton of memories.
The members have changed but it has been completely passed on so even now it’s a precious, dear song to me that I love.
I remembered the day we first performed aMa no jaku. It’s nostalgic…
But starting today
every time I sing it
I will remember Budokan.
If I wrote about each song I would go on forever, so I’ll just write a lot of my thoughts.
Oh, I was going to put a picture in here but when I opened up my file just now, I started crying so I closed it (・_・) lol
But it was a really, really wonderful live!!!! Budokan is so much more amazing than I had imagined in my dreams.
Before it started I received support messages from a lot of people,
I’m still full of joy (>_<)
I felt the love of so many people, truly I did.
I love the staff and all of you!!!!
The staff are incredibly caring! So much so that I want to introduce them to you♪♪♪
Thank you so much to all of the fans! When Budokan was announced you all got excited for us
and the next day so many people told me congratulations at the handshake events
I feel like we share both good times and bad times together.
I think at Budokan we were able to repay everyone just a little for that kindness!!!
This isn’t the goal for us, though, it marks the start of another new beginning, I want to feel good when I reaching my future goal, the finish line, someday, that’s the kind of idol life I want to lead☆
Our Hello! senpai and kouhai came as celebratory guests and put me at ease!
I feel like I have always paid too much attention to the opinions of people looking at tiny me.
I was serious about strange things
and it was really all for nothing… lol
But it’s boring, after all, to live a life so seriously and concerned about what others are doing or saying!
From here on I want to expose more and more of myself! My own way! I’ll move on! Not just in appearances, either.
Yes, that’s right! After it was over
the founding S/mileage members gathered together～!
Yuuka (Maeda Yuuka-chan) and
Saki (Ogawa Saki-chan) came to see us
I cried out of emotion… (>_<)
Now of course I love all the members who have been accepted into S/mileage!
But, I cannot forget the friends I worked so hard with when S/mileage was formed!! They’re friends I experienced struggles with that I couldn’t even imagine now.
We didn’t feel like rivals so our bonds deepened in the best way as friends♪
I really love them!
Also, everyone in the current S/mileage!
MeiMei (Tamura Meimi-chan)
Even though she was a younger sister character before she has taken ahold of the position of an awesome performer, and I think how she does everything 100% is amazing!! Don’t think about things too hard and let go a little, I want to see the old innocent MeiMei more, too♪
Rinapu～ (Katsuta Rina-chan)
Rinapu～ is charming in a way I can’t put into words! On the outside she’s doing things plainly, but on the inside she’s very kind, and when I or the other members are having trouble, she gets close like a puppy and says, “Are you okay?” Rinapu～ helps us all♪
Takechan (Takeuchi Akari-chan)
Takechan is synonymous with boyish! Even in her dancing she has motor reflexes like a boy so she looks cool! Her appearance may be boyish but she really is fragile and feminine inside! But I rely so much on her when dancing, and I’m still going to be relying on her so please take care of me! lol
Kana (Nakanishi Kana-chan)
Kana was at a completely different experience level than everyone else when she joined S/mileage, I think it must have been hard and she felt helpless (>_<) But, Ayacho and I and eeeeeveryone else, we all started as amateurs, we were all inexperienced in singing and dancing. So, I want Kana to keep working hard without paying any mind to other things, and things are fun whenever she’s around so I want her to stay with us♪
Ayachoーー!! (Wada Ayaka-chan)
I have known Ayacho for about 10 years now, and probably for that entire time, we’ve had a good amount of distance between us. So while we haven’t clashed over much in particular, we have moments when we’re very close.
When S/mileage was formed, we never thought it would be just the two of us left, we talk about that a lot lolol
The two who had significantly less singing parts. lol
When she was named leader, at the time, I thought, huh!? It’s Ayacho?
But she has been the greatest leader.
She’s reliable in an Ayacho style that only she can pull off as leader
all of the members trust her. I wonder if it isn’t because she’s the leader that we’ve come this far?
We’ve had sweet moments and sour moments together, with the 2nd generation members and the fans!
We’ll show you a good dream for the future!
And so thank you, everyone!!!!!!!
S/mileage will run forward from here on outーーー!!!!!!
I want ice cream
