Takahashi-minami

Takamina sings Itoshisa no Accel in Dance Senbatsu Stage…or so we thought. 

Why am I not surprised that something like this happens to Takamina? XD

It would seem Sae and the other members are complaining about Takamina’s choice of song for herself since they just did the intense dance song Must be now. Comparing that to Itoshisa no Accel’s choreography, I can understand why they’re not pleased. (I was wondering why they were still on the stage while the intro was playing the first time I watched this live.)

How embarrassing…for the soon to graduate leader of the 48Group to be down on her knees begging her juniors (especially to Tano-chan) to let her sing her song. Fortunately they give her the okay to sing, but advise her not to go overboard like jump into the audience with her sword out and end up in the news.

Funny how this happens to Takamina again in the Chaos Stage, getting interrupted before she sings her song. XDD

I see, there are a lot quest about kojima haruna so i see at her grad stage that aki-p write her letter,if u don't mind can u translate that?and there is vtr show some member comment for her like from paruru,izurina and the other can u translate that too

From the VTR: 

Yokoyama Yui’s excerpt from something she said to Kojima on her seitansai last year; 
“By the makeup-artists and the staff, we would always get told, “whenever you borrow and then give back something where there’s written “Kojiharu” on it, be sure to properly express gratitude to her”. Now, as a person, that’s just good manners, it’s obvious we’d do that, but I also realized that it is something maybe we don’t really always get the chance to do. But then,  by following those instructions for the past 10 years, and by seeing you doing just the same, I realized what an amazing person you also are not only on the outside, by showing off this cool attitude and beautiful looks, but also on the inside.”

Ogino Yuka’s 2017 Sousenkyo Speech (5th place):

To everyone who voted for me, thank you so, so, so, much.

I’m NGT48 Team N III’s “Ogiyuka" or Ogino Yuka.

From 6th grade in elementary school, I’ve always admired AKB48.

For 4 years, I took auditions. I kept failing every one, and wondered if I should just give up and continue admiring AKB from afar.

At that time, I participated in the Draft Kaigi. Kitaraha Rie-san, Kashiwagi Yuki-san, and the executive Imamura-san selected me to be in NGT48.

Although I felt insecure and would live by myself, I moved to Niigata.

I believe my family was really worried. But now I definitely think, “I’m so glad I came to Niigata.”

I was the last pickings, the leftovers. Dreams definitely don’t come true, and something like “hard work will definitely be rewarded” was obviously a lie! I thought that for forever!

But for those 4 years, no matter what I wanted to be in the AKB48G, so I kept taking auditions with all my might.

Then, when I got 1st place in the preliminaries, I was really surprised, and I know everyone was thinking, “who’s Ogino Yuka?” “why is it this person?”

I myself was also very surprised.

“I wonder if I broke the AKB48 sousenkyo.” There were times I thought so.

Even so, I’ll take the love I’ve received from everyone and accept it with all my heart.

Now, in the sousenkyo of the AKB48G I’ve always admired, receiving such a wonderful ranking is like a dream.

I’m really glad that I kept taking AKB auditions until now without giving up, and it makes me really happy to have fans who are there to cheer me on.

I asked Takahashi Minami-san, “will hard work definitely be rewarded?” She said, “I don’t know if hard work will definitely be rewarded, but in working hard, there is nothing that has no meaning.”

Then she said, “next time, show me that hard work will definitely be rewarded, ok?”

Am I showing you that hard work will definitely be rewarded right now?

Surely, in this situation, I believe there are many people who were unable to reach their goal and are experiencing frustration.

For those people, I hope they will listen to my catchphrase, “no matter what happens, I won’t get discouraged!”

It’s really, really all thanks to everyone who supported me! For carrying someone like me all the way here, thank you so, so much, and also, thank you very much for making me into an idol!

I definitely want to connect this result to NGT’s debut two years ago, and I want to work hard for AKBG’s sake too. Please let me do my best! I think it’s still far away for me to become an existence that you’ll entrust AKB to, but I’ll work hard with all my might from now on, so please cheer me on.

Translations of some comments on her speech:

“Ogiyuka’s fine speech”

“I wonder if there’s anyone who can watch this Ogiyuka and not like her??”
–“Honestly at preliminaries I was like "who’s that?” but after listening to her speech I immediately became a fan. It’s great that her hardships were rewarded.“

"I feel like I’ve figured out why that girl named Ogino attracts people”

“To be honest I didn’t know Ogiyuka-chan until the preliminaries, but out of all the speeches this year, her’s resonated in my heart the most. I want to cheer on that girl who is so pure and straightforward.”

“No matter how many times I watch this, I cry. The best kami speech. I’m so happy her hard work was rewarded. Ogiyuka, thanks for coming to Niigata. This is the start line. Everyone’s cheering for you.”

“The line for Ogiyuka’s graph is almost vertical…”

“Even if Ogiyuka ‘broke the sousenkyo,’ it’s for AKBG’s sake, the future’s sake. This year was a good sousenkyo.”

“I definitely support Ogiyuka~~~~ There was actually still such a hard working girl in the 48G!”

“I cried at Ogiyuka’s speech. It’s the first time I’ve cried lol"
