Morning Musume’s Budokan live show
It was Niigaki Risa-chan and Mitsui Aika-chan’s graduation performance
Everyone that was on stage was shining brightly
The sight of them giving it their all was cool
I wasn’t in Morning Musume at the same time as Mitsui-chan, but whenever we met, she always said, “Ogawa-saa~n,” and came over to talk to me with a smile. That was impressive.
Her graduation letter overflowed with kindness, typical of Mitsui-chan.
I think she was surely troubled more than others because of her foot injury, but she worked hard.
And then, Gaki-san.
Until the very last moment, she splendidly carried out her role as leader.
Precisely because we’re generation-mates and were always together, I know how much Gaki-san has grown.
She was super cool.
