[TN: From the end of Rika's previous entry]
Also after YoungTown I went to see a beloved colleague’s courageous performance at Nippon Budoukan.
To be continued.
I went to Nippon Budoukan to see Morning Musume’s concert. o(^▽^)o
Gaki-san & Mittsi’s graduation concert
was super cool.
When she first joined Morning Musume she was really a tiny child, with an itty bitty face like a bean. It makes me nostalgic thinking about how we used to always call her mame [bean].
I still call her mame. (lol)
The letter Gaki-san wrote
resounded in my heart.
I think Gaki-san very clearly expressed her feelings toward the fans, her fellow members, and the many people who supported her.
You’ve truly worked hard.
And then there’s Mittsi～
Somehow she had such adult-like expressions.
I was never in Morning Msume with Mittsi～ but I always watched her from close by.
When Biyuuden and Morning Musume did a concert tour together, we sang “Otoko Tomodachi” together.
Even now I still remember feeling how hard she was working as I danced beside her.
Even after you graduate Morning Musume, please continue to move forward at your own pace.
There was also a surprise during yesterday’s concert…
There’s going to be an 11th generation member audition. o(^▽^)o
I’m going to gain some new colleagues again.
When I joined I was a youthful 15 year old but now…
I’m all grown up.
Am I using the right words when I say “grown up”? lol
Morning Musume is always changing.
My beloved Morning Musume.
I’ll continue to cheer them on.
I’ll also do my best to continue to change too. v(^-^)v
