I slept really tight last night～～～～～ッ!!!w
Everybody, thank you for yesterday m(__)m
At last, I didn’t rank any at all. I couldn’t stand on that stage.
It’s really frustrating.
More of all, I couldn’t return the favor to fans who have supported me and told me ”Let’s try our best together!”
I couldn’t stand on that stage to say thanks to my fans.
It was so frustrating, so painful I didn’t know what to do and frustrated tears kept falling on my cheek.
Until I heard Under Girls, Akimoto Sayaka-san’s comment.
Team K’s captain Akimoto Sayaka-san, with her face full of confidence, proudly said,
“I will be an example”
At that moment, deep in me, the “painful” feeling had disappeared somewhere.
I had the feeling I finally found the answer.
I had the feeling I already found the place I was aiming for in AKB.
Right after that, it was the announcement of senbatsu.
Umeda-san was voted as senbatsu member.
That moment, Akimoto-san, sitting on stage, was congratulating for Umeda-san and looking really happy as if it was herself being elected.
There were 2 member from my generation being elected today.
There are also a lot of members in Team 4 ranked in.
I couldn’t be happy enough (^^)
Always thinking for others, even if I myself is not number one, I want to be a captain who can congratulate for my friends, whom are appreciated, from the bottom of my heart.
I’m sure that’s what I must aim for.
I know there are a lot of people who don’t like me.
However, the one who decides my own future is me!
And fans are the ones who help me to create that path.
Takamina-san also said that.
“It’s true that it’s not guaranteed that if you put in effort, you will be pay back. But if you don’t put in any effort then nothing will start”
This time, my name was not called, and to make fans who had tried their best for me say “I’m sorry” to me is the saddest thing.
It’s true that I’m frustrated…
I won’t say “I’m sorry”…!
Everybody, thanks for taking me this far…!!!
This is not the end！！♪
We will still continue to improve ourselves！！★
With this frustration being a spring, I will believe in what I saw and have found yesterday and advancing forward!
Election, to be honest before it started, I hated it so much it became a pressure.
But when it ended, once again, I really think that I want to be in AKB, I want to be in AKB! …(^^)
This is the most enjoying event so far!!
Everybody, thank you so much!!!!!!☆ノシ
