At the Yokohama Arena concert,
Michishige Sayumi graduated from Morning Musume.
When I announced my graduation on April 29,
“I want to make lots of fun memories with all of the fans over the next 6 months.”
I made so so soーーー
In the half a year between the announcement and my graduation,
I felt more love from the fans than I had before
It was all.. fun.
Also.. so fast….
I like you all too much
However, it’s because you tell me you like Sayumi! lol
Everyone who likes Sayumi
I loーーーve you!
My graduation yesterday
In the middle of it, my leg started to hurt, and I couldn’t dance like I thought I could and it was exceptionally mortifying, I’m so sorry,
I was more mad at myself than had ever been before (lol)
thinking back on it now, I was still happy
The Sayumin calls and the pink penlights.
I received so much love from your support and cheers and kindness.
I got all of it!
The power of everyone’s love is incredible. It’s unparalleled.
Now that I have graduated from Morning Musume, it honestly feels strange, like I’m still in the middle of a dream or something..
No, rather, now at the present moment,
the truth is, the past 12 years I’ve been working as a part of Morning Musume have been like something out of a dream.
I got to spend 12 years like they were a dream
Sayumi is truly fortunate.
Thank you for so much support
for me, who can’t do much of anything,
for me, who causes problems because I can’t do anything.
Thank you for loving me.
My final dress yesterday.
“I want to wear a dress made of flowers!
I want the dress itself to look like a flower garden!”
That was my wish and they brought all of it to reality for me
When I sit down it really looks like a flower garden, doesn’t it
I sang Akai Freesia in this dress and at that moment
I was in utter bliss!
I have been bad at that song for all of 12 years (lol)
But I still thought, “I love this song!”
With everyone there, I really thought about how so many things have changed.
I have a lot of confidence and got stronger!
Thank you so much.
After the end of the show, with everyone in Morning Musume ’14!
I love them!
I’m happy we could get along as well as we do
I’m glad I got to be with these members!
thank you for being Sayumi’s kouhai.
New leader Fukuchan!
You will be okay if it’s Fukuchan!
And the new order of Morning Musume after I have graduated will definitely be okay!
Because it’s all of you.
You’re all so awesome!
I love you
Then, Morning Musume OG senpai.
They came to see the concert
and gave me warm words
after the show, like “Good work,” “You worked so hard these 12 years.”
I looked up to them, joined Morning Musume, got scolded a lot by them, learned from them, and in the end they hugged me, I was so happy.
I am here now because my senpai were there.
Morning Musume is here now because they were there.
I’m so grateful to them,
And from now on Morning Musume will go on.
Also, the Hello!Pro members!
Thank you, everyone!
They all stood on stage with me, talked with me, spent time together with me, and it was fun.
I was happy they came to see me yesterday and had fun themselves.
“Michishige-san, your singing voice has made progress～” (lol)
all of the staff members.
I caused trouble for you until the end… I am thankful from the bottom of my heart that I got to work with a staff who all have such love for Morning Musume.
And, I got presents and beautiful flowers from many entertainers and relations, and all of the fans.
Thank you so, so much!
Please take care of Morning Musume after this, everyone.
Thank you so much.
