“My cat as well as my family, who used to be by my side when I was drawing the Circus arc, all of them passed away in the last few years, but I still have my editor K-san, my fellow assistants and my fans, who supported the anime adaption of the Circus Arc from that time. And the fact that they are all still supporting Kuroshitsuji even today is just amazing.
RETRACE 104 IS GOING TO BE THE FINAL CHAPTER OF PANDORA HEARTS!
Mochizuki-sensei just updated her blog today an made the announcement. There is no mistranslation by me this time. The Japanese is incredibly straightforward.
Here is the Japanese (and my English translation) :
The next chapter of Pandora Hearts is the final chapter!
Here is the breakdown of the Japanese:
ＰａｎｄｏｒａＨｅａｒｔｓ(Pandora Hearts)次回(じかい, jikai, next time, or in this case, next chapter) 最終回(さいしゅうかい, saishuukai, final episode/chapter/etc.)です(is)！
She goes on to say:
Pandora Heart’s final chapter is going to be in the April Edition of G-Fantasy!
I’m terribly sorry that I was unable to make an announcement [about it] last month…! ————————————————————————————————–
There are some other things she talks about in her post, but this is the only major thing.
So this is it guys! I’m not surprised, but I am excited and anxious and a bit nervous all at the same time! I’m going to be translating this on my birthday (March 19th), so I just hope the ending ends up being a good one!
In any case, yabai is a useful word, isn’t it? When you see something beautiful: “Yabai!” When you eat something delicious: “Yabai!” When something bad has happened: “Yabai!” Anyone can use it. It’s useful. It’s too useful it’s yabai. Too yabai. I feel like there’s a lot of young people that go “yabai, yabai” these days. I also use “yabai” a lot, but if you say “yabai” too much, you start to look like an idiot. It’s like you’re lacking in vocabulary. It’s yabai to look like an idiot, so I want to stop. Yabai. With that that said, it’s yabai, so I’ll be sealing off “yabai” for now. Goodbye, yabai.
But when I think about it, whenever I see something beautiful or eat delicious food, it feels kind of weird to use slightly difficult words. I’m not a reporter or anything, so I don’t think it’s such a bad thing to express my feelings honestly. Even if it’s yabai, it might be a good thing. Then, I guess I’ll use “yabai” now and then. Welcome back, yabai. You came back so soon. As I thought, the usefulness “yabai” is yabai, and since it’s yabai, I can’t stay away from it. The time is getting to be yabai soon, so it’s about time to wrap it up. Until next time. Yabai-bai.
( *yabai is a slang word that can be used in various different situations and contexts. Its meaning can range from “oh no/crap!” to “wow/woah!” to “amazing/cool” to “terrible” or “dangerous.” Very versatile and useful. Yabai. )
We had the final premiere screening and press meet for the SKE48 Documentary Movie today.
Watching the video made me think and remember a lot of things.
(Throughout my time in SKE48), I also had experienced a lot of different things, and felt a lot of emotions too. Even the tough times
But after watching my seniors in the movies, my troubles and labour now feels insignificant. I think it’s because I was (entered) when the environment then was already toned down… It was very easy going then already.
The 5th generation entered SKE48 when the foundations were already laid so we did not fully understand (what it meant to be) in SKE48.
But, I understand a bit (now). I now know the labour and emotions that our seniors went through in the history of SKE48.
I have heard that it was tough and difficult but we never did talk in depth about it… That’s why I’m very grateful that I got to learn about all this things through this footages.
I’ll treasure every word said from now on.
When I’ve to talk about how I want SKE48 to proceed from now on, or about my goals, I have to be the one supporting them all.
Even more than I have ever before.
I scares me just to say that I understand the history of SKE48. But is it right for such a phrase to come out of my mouth so confidently?
It scares me but it is also because I love SKE48 that I want to forge new paths, and show it new sceneries. All these outweigh my fear.
It’s just that as long as I’m in the SKE48 that I love, I want to give it all that I have.
If I get to live till a 100 years old, then that means I’ll still have a long live after I leave SKE48…
If that’s the case, then I should postpone all the things that I'm wasting my time on and things that I want to do
I want to support and help every one of the many members, even if I were to do so alone I can only do this now because I am in SKE48, that’s why I will continue to treasure every moment that I am in SKE48!
It’s not limited to only the members
You (usually) wouldn’t be able to talk about your dreams with your fans at such a close distance.
But it is because I am here, that I am able to do so.
SKE48 is the engine towards dreams
(After telling) Masana-san, she told me “I never knew that Naochan thought this way” and hugged me after “You have to let it known by more people, it’s alright to tell others about it” I was so happy to hear her say that to me
It is thanks to the 1st generation members and kind members who have been supporting us all this time that I’m now able to write this to all of you.
Masana-san told me that I have to be prepared for the consequences if I were to express my honest feelings else I’d better not say it.
That is true I’ve gotten the resolve to express my honest feelings and intentions in front of my seniors, the members and my fans.
But as I wrote earlier, the reason why I’m able to say all this now is because I love SKE48!
I’m a klutzy girl who hates to lose so I’m sure that there’s definitely going to continue to be a lot of things that’ll break my heart from now on but… When that time comes, I hope I’ll fall in love with SKE48 again and become an even stronger and kinder person.
I’m sorry for the long post (;_;) I’m very grateful for the movie to have helped me mature this much.
Idol no namida DOCUMENTARY OF SKE48
will be screened from 27th February Please do watch it ☆ミ
Thank you all very much for reading, liking and commenting on my AmeBlog.
It’s been about 5 years since Rui was with us; as someone who is dependable, I really relied on him. As the rhythm team, I can play the drums well in the lives and he gives me a great sense of security when he smiles at me sometimes during the lives.
There are so many memories and thinking about it hurts my heart but the SCREW that had Rui in it was definitely the best. – Jin (SCREW) [Blog - 140902]
Miki Honoka Blog 07/21: Itazura na Kiss Love in Tokyo THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
First of all, How was Itazura na Kiss: Love in tokyo episode 16?
Kotoko got married to Irie-kun! She really really loves that Ire-kun ever since.
From now on, I wonder what will happen. But it was good to be able to show the meaning of true love Really Kotoko is very happy. Everyone, Thank you for supporting me!
Now, all the 16 episode are all done airing, Thank you for your support you guys gave up to now!
The shooting was done in an instant, even tho they were still airing it.
When the shooting and the airing began, I was really nervous and anxious and i was really worried and it was always on my mind. Will it be okay? Will I be okay? I didnt have the confidence.
But when it began, lots of fans were watching it and then it spread much further not only in Japan but in China and America, and to the whole world. I didnt expect that it would come this far.
After watching you guys would comment on my blog saying like “this one was fun! “ “Kotoko-chan is cute!” I was really happy! It was fun and I was given courage, thats why in shooting I did my best. I gained confidence.
When Itakiss stopped shooting and we all separated at that time I was thinking I love those people. Until now I’m still in contact with Satomi and Jinko, I miss them.
I think it would be good if there was a continuation.
from the bottom my heart Its reallllllllyyyy my wish. And I hope it will come true.
but until then Miki Honoka will be doing her best! Really thank you for all the support you guys have given me.
SCANDAL; “Yokohama Amphitheater” blogpost by MAMI☆
“Is where I’m at! We had the MUSIC JAPAN open recording☝︎It’s once again different from the usual NHK Hall and I felt the close distance between the audience and I. I was happy to have gotten to see each and every person’s expressions properly! Those who came to watch, thank you☆ To perform「Image」outside of a live, it was the first time so I was nervous☺︎”
“In our spare time, we went to Ikspiari, at the Yokohama Amphitheater right at the opposite!! As it was my first time walking inside Ikspiari, I was excited! There was a sky underneath the sky! The weather was too good!!”
“There’s where we’ve interrupted so many times; bay fm78’s DJ, Bucky Koba’s familiar studio☺︎ You can see the wave height of its building front right! Thank you for always coming to see all of us☺︎”
“Determined to take a meal that’s heavily centered about deep-fried foods, I was satisfied☝︎ It was funー! As there’s a certain photo-shoot tomorrow, I’m nervous because it’s the first time in a long time! That’s how I feel!! It applies to filmed footage or photos but I can’t seem to quite get used to photo-shoots…nah, rather than say I can’t get used to it, I’m just embarrassed. Laughs.”
“As I’ll put up something cool, wait a little ☺︎♪”
I’m sorry for the sudden withdrawal. You must all be surprised, right?
For things to end up like this even though we had worked so hard to get here, it’s really frustrating.
I have no regrets about all the hard work I have done from the previous band until D.I.D.. But when I think about how things will be after this, it’s really frustrating.
I feel truly sorry for the other members and our fans. Thank you for sticking with me all the way until now. You’ve always been supporting me.
I cannot apologize enough to DEZERT and Grieva who had invited us to take part to their tour. I’m deeply sorry. I’m also sorry to those who will be attending the lives that have been planned after this.
To my beloved D.I.D. fans,
Thank you truly for your support until now.
This is the last word from me.
Please continue to support my beloved D.I.D. after this too. Even if I’m no longer here, please continue to love D.I.D., ok?
Once again, thank you.
[NOTE:For the other posts pertaining to Satoshi’s withdrawal:
