From the June issue of Monthly AKB48 group news.

Headline: I’m grinning because I’m standing next to Kawaei Rina-san

The “safe and sound pervert” Furukawa Airi has shown stability by entering the Undergirls for the second year in a row. Standing next to AKB48’s 25th-ranked Kawaei Rina, why is it that she started becoming nervous. “Right now, being next to Kawaei Rina-san, I’m grinning…” Being able to hear laughter from 70,000 people, it showed that her pervert character has become even firmer compared to last year. This year, like last year, she also drew on her hand her original characters, “Gugutasu-tan” and “Chibi Airin”, and the “three of them” stood to make a joyful speech. Showing her palm to the audience, she said “it’s blurry because of the sweat-no, the tears”, and once again made everyone laugh.

I didn’t think it was possible to love someone so much.

For today’s AKB election… one of my old students “Furukawa Airi” ranked 27th, and I felt comforted again that she’s working hard. To everyone whom she received support from, thank you very much. In the future too, please continue to take care of Furukawa. It’s a night where I feel somehow relieved. and so, good night… - Takemoto Takayuki

Congratulations to Mayu for receiving 3rd place in the Senbatsu Sosenkyo 2015!!!
As a hardcore Mayuyu fan, I am just a tiny bit frustrated/sad about the drop in the rankings, but surprisingly I’m really really really happy with the results.
3rd place means she has a set of stairs she can climb up again.
3rd place means more chances.
And her expression tells us everything.
She’s grown so much in the past year - she’s not the 15 year old idol-cyborg anymore. She has grown up, she’s gone through a lot, and I will continue to follow her no matter what happens.
So congratulations again! To the one and only, Mayu Watanabe!!
