Are these two even real?

So, two days ago the  FLASHスペシャルグラビアBEST 2017GW got released and there’s this wonderful person on my Twitter who kinda reported an excerpt from a MaYuki interview in the magazine. 

I strongly suggest y’all to sit down, ‘cause what you’re gonna read is VERY gay.

Q3 is about their current relationship nowadays. 
M: since when we both got selected for singles senbatsu we both have grown closer, haven’t we? 
Y: But because we’re constantly together on workplace, time spent together outside of it has become pretty rare, hasn’t it? Even our seats on the Shinkansen would be always next to each other.
M: Our managers always make sure that we’re together, too (laughs)
Y: Talk about getting so much along. 

Q6 asks them what would they change about the other person, if they could. 
Y: Maybe the way she laughs. It’s a laughter she lets out only when she’s with me and it’s really something. 
M: *ugly laugher* 
Y: That’s the one! That’s what I’m talking about!
M: But this is the one I let out only with people I opened my heart to. With others is just a fake laugh. 
Y: Ain’t you exaggerating there!? 
M: What I’d change about you is your overly considerate nature. When I asked you to let me have what you were drinking you even asked me, “but I put my lips on it, you sure it’s OK?”
Y: That’s because I’m a fussy person (T/N: I’m not sure how to properly translate it in english, so I’m not sure if “fussy person” would be the most appropriate translation, but what I meant is that she doesn’t like it when people eat the same thing she’s eating or drink from the same spot she’s been drinking simply because she thinks that’s dirty or not clean as a thing). 
M: That’s fine, I’m telling you! I trust you so I can drink from it! 
Y: god, you’re over-reacting (laughs) 

and these are messages they wrote for each other↓

Let’s go have fun someplace
next time~

which reminds me, I don’t know if anyone has translated it yet, but because I was on hiatus (AKA crying alone in a corner for Haruka) I kinda forgot to translate for y’all the love letter Mayu wrote for Yuki on last month’s number of  『duet』. 

「To Yukirin,
It’s been 10 years since our first meeting, and you’re still the same kind and nice person. Thank you for always embracing me with your immense kindness just like a mother would do. Because we’ve both got similar sense of humor and sensibility, it becomes easy to feel happy and just have fun when I’m with you. You’d always call me out on my stupid things whenever I’d say or do any, so I always feel like I can be 100% myself when I’m with you, and just do whatever I want (laughs). Despite you said you wouldn’t sing, you also agreed to come with me to the karaoke, didn’t you. “If you wanna go, Mayu, then let’s go”. But I ended up singing alone for the whole time and… At some point I kinda felt my heart breaking in two. Singing alone feels lonely, so please, next time we go sing with me (laughs). Also, we should totally go to that Sanrio Puroland too, since we both keep saying we wanna go!」

this actually is a love letter since they asked her to write a letter for three people she holds dear to her. One was for her mother, another was for her fans, and the third one was for Yuki. 
You’re welcome. 

Here’s Yuki’s message for Mayu from the FLASH magazine, btw↓

「Mayu-chan ❤
Keep being yourself whenever we’re together from now on too, alright? ;) 
I’ll always, always,
LOVE you.

“That’s fine, I’m telling you! I trust you so I can drink from it!“

remember that time during their own showroom when Yuki was eating a candy and Mayu wanted to eat it too, so she asked for a bite from Yuki’s candy, but Yuki wouldn’t give it to her? 

I do.

TomuMobame 2017-04-13

Although I had already entered AKB48’s 49th Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo, yesterday, I withdrew from the race.

I’m really, really sorry.
And I’m sorry I haven’t been able to update SNS regularly.
And for doing this after sales for Okinawa and the theater viewings had already started.

I’ve been thinking a lot since the candidacy period and entering.

At first, I didn’t intend to run at all.
I had made up my mind at the Thanksgiving Concert last year.
When that senbatsu was announced, even though you gave me a wonderful ranking in the Sousenkyo, even though I thought that would be my confidence, I felt shattered.
And because of that, all along I felt terribly sorry to all of you. And, would the next election change anything? Or would it be better for you to spend your time on something else?
This was always on my mind.

But after that, as the Sousenkyo drew near, I heard everyone’s voices cheering me on at handshake events and on SNS, and many people were expecting me to enter and supporting me saying “let’s do our best in the next one too”. It makes me feel happy, but also a little guilty–I want to meet your expectations, I don’t want to cause you worry… somehow it’s so very complicated.
Each time I heard those words, I was filled with a mix of many different feelings.

I was very worried, and sought lots of advice, and thought about it right up to the last minute. Then, with no other thought than that after all I wanted to meet everyone’s expectations, and that no matter what happens I love this group, I decided to enter the elections.

It is not an exaggeration to say Sousenkyo is synonymous with AKB48.
And for me too, the Sousenkyo was essential.
Through the Sousenkyo, you all pushed me forward, and I found so much hope. You enabled me to make a place for myself.

Therefore, of course, by appearing in this year’s SSK again, I wanted to help the group and make it exciting.
And I thought, one more time, I’ll do my best again with everyone who will support me.

I also wrote an e-mail with my feelings about the election.

However, I couldn’t send it.

I couldn’t stop thinking.

Is it really okay to keep on like this? Am I making proper use of this now-or-never time?

This hit me again after applying for the elections.
And I was troubled.

Inside, I was sad, and frustrated, and so worried and distressed that there were even times my emotions overflowed into tears. I had no idea what the right answer was, and for the first time I couldn’t control myself.

What is it that I should really be doing right now? Both to help the group and for my own future? I consulted a lot about this, and as a result of discussions with staff, I concluded I want to spend this year increasing my skills. And with that in mind I decided to withdraw.

And yet having made the decision, I know how many people will be affected by my withdrawal, and how irresponsible it is, and how much trouble it causes for those around me.
And I know it was not something granted easily.

So because of that, for as much trouble as I have caused, I will work that much harder.
So that after one year, both the people around me and those supporting me, and myself as well, will see the growth I have achieved in that year and think this was the right decision.

I don’t have any plans to graduate.
Please let me keep doing my best here.

From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry to have caused you so much trouble and so much worry.

In the year ahead, I will do my best to grow up and contribute more to this group I love so much.
Thank you for your continued support.

N.B: This is a translation by @wlerin48 and I helped him for a bit.

Mail March 30th


I have applied
for my candidacy
at 49th single Senbatsu Sousenkyo

My goal is “Kami7”

last year at prelim
my fans
made me into kami 7…
and for the final result
i was at 14th…

I’m really moved that time
I will always treasure that time in my life.

If I reached my goal to be in Kami 7
I will be one step closer to my dream
to lead everyone in the 48 group forward.

having a solo song
selected for senbatsu
having lot of fun jobs
for me it’s all what my fans
have give to me

Sometimes I do feel sorry
for everyone to use their money and time
just for me

but everyone keep saying to me
that you all want to support me
I want to cherish that feeling
and repay it…
that’s what I think

I want to be in Kami 7
I want to see that scenery again
I want to see fans’ smile again
I want to show everyone my smile again
I want to lead everyone in AKB

with that in my mind…
I’ll be going to Okinawa

I applied on the same time
with 16th gen
Maeda Ayaka chan ~(*´Д`*)

Ayaka chan
is really cute.


Today … there is… no more. lol

dog and cat

next to me is …


I will do my best
in dress rehearsal.

Good EveNakotan(^o^)

AKB48 49th Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo、the submission time begun at 11am。

The fans were looking attentively、
I suddenly got relieved。
If you were looking、thank you very much!

And、Theater no Megami double stage(^^)
It was a long time since I performed in Theater no Megami、and I was perfoming Bagutte Iijan in Sashikochan’s position
I was really nervous、but I was able to do it without making a mistake☺️

I am glad I saw a lot of uchiwas and T-shirt!
Thank you so much😊

My unit was Candy🍭
As for my hairstyle、
I had a ponytail for the noon performance
And for the night performance I had a half-up( ^∀^)

And it was Mariri’s seitansei!!
Once again、thank you so much(^^)
It’s really amazing she has such big wonderful dreams of being a voice actressー✨
I appreciate her for going towards this dream one step at a time!
I want to go out to lunch with her😊

The catering today was Carry、when I went to the waiting room it smelled like curry笑
After the stage ended、my manger dropped letters and we ate ice as well😭💕

Yabuki Nako G+ / 2017.03.25

anonymous asked:

Doc, do you think Annin will graduate? :( And who do you think has a possibility to graduate who isn't participating?

I won’t say no; it’s most definitely a possibility we have to consider, but as I’ve mentioned before, I personally have hope (say, a 50-70% hope) that she will honour her promise to Yokoyama during her 20th Birthday to stay on as part of AKB48′s next batch of leaders.

As for other non-participants, it would unfortunately really be easier to determine who wouldn’t graduate… because honestly speaking, I can think of individualized reasons for why most of them would consider graduating anyway. The only one who has come out to explicitly say that she will not graduate is AKB48′s Murayama Yuiri. The other one whom I think is most unlikely to graduate is NMB48′s Kinoshita Momoka, since she’s made it clear that her non-participation is really because she has never wanted to participate in the first place. Iriyama and Kizaki will hopefully stay on as well as they have been an important fixture of AKB48′s current/next-gen batch of leaders.

On the other hand, I am particularly concerned about Futamura Haruka, Yagura Fuuko and Kodama Haruka. These three have been identified as major players in 48G’s current and next generations of Aces, at both the sister-group and 48G-wide levels. Their non-participation raises alarm bells for the group, as their respective graduations would leave holes in the hierarchy that may not be easily filled up.

And this is where I insert a shameless plug. I’m gonna need to ask you guys for your help here. Especially the sister group fans. If any of you guys have any information at all regarding the non-participating members and their reasons for not participating, I would very much appreciate if you could send me a heads-up, and a verified source for it. I’m on vacation right now, so I don’t have access to a workstation I can use to trawl the net for information. I will try, but I can’t guarantee timely updates.
