Just gathered some information about the flowers that senbatsu members are holding all thanks to my mom and some Japanese wotas on twitter, including meanings of those flowers. If there’s any mistake please inform me because I may get some flowers wrong.

  • If Orange lily: brilliant, amusing, hasty, careless

Takamina Message on Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby MV

To Sayaka: After I graduate, if there’s anything feel free to talk to me.I want to be your strength.Don’t force yourself,create an environment where you can relax. This is surely good for NMB as well.

To Jurina: Jurina is always working hard at the frontline,leading everyone,so you can’t see anything else. It’s also important to slow down and take a look around you. You’re missing important stuff even though they’re in your line of vision. Do treasure the comrades around you. You’re not alone.

To Sakura: I don’t dislike the way you run.It’s because you’re putting in your best. You don’t have to mind when someone laughs at you. It’s fine even if you’re slow.

To Kitahara: You’re going to be a senior and the example for many.But it’s not a situation where you have to hide your weakness from them. Be confident. Show them your weak side too.If it’s KitaRie, they’ll certainly follow you.

To Sashihara: Asobina Asobina~

To Paruru: Please take your time and rest. Recover slowly!
