AKB48’s summer is over
We began our 5 big Dome Tour on July 20th
To be honest, when I first heard about it I was scared of these 5 big domes because we would be seeing things we haven’t seen before, we had to build up some anticipation for a fun time, and we also had to send off 3 members
I was also scared for my own physical strength… LOL
I think the setlist and set this time was very challenging for the AKB48 groups. It wasn’t just about pupping people up, but kind of like bewitching the audience with our show
It was awesome to begin the lives with RIVER, Raydown, and Mokugekisha
It honestly made my heart race and throwing away the stereotype of, “It would be good to start off with THIS song”, we were able to try new things and once again, I thought that was important.
I could truly feel the passion in each place: Fukuoka, Hokkaido, Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo
I think the lives gave the groups such great motivation ♪
Everyone’s unity just got stronger and stronger after every performance and that was really great (^-^)/
Thank you SO much to everyone who came
And to the huge team of support staff, the managers, the costume designers who made our cute outfits, and the make-up department
And to all of our dance instructors who taught SO many of us where to go
To the making team who shot footage of so many of us, to the cameramen, and to the trainers who gave us care
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR BEING THERE DURING THESE 11 CONCERTS!!
We can’t just stand on stage with the help of 1 person
We truly need a ton of support staff to help us stand up there. I am very grateful
Good work to the members too. Even though this was a tour, it’s also an AKB group live, which means the content is always changing
You guys memorized the shuffle units and team songs and truly overcame our obsticales!For me, I’ve always been in Team A, so I don’t have to memorize the song choreography much, but other members have to memorize 5 or 6 new songs in just 1 day. That’s just amazing, truly.
Everyone, you all worked very hard
Let your body have a little rest and then let’s continue to work hard!
To my close friends who have graduated
Congrats and I love all 3 of you
For me, you’re all irreplaceable and have been a big support
PS I can’t believe that during the opening of the last day my fighting yell was a bit too much and I hit my chin on the mic, so it got a little injured LOL “What happened? Who was that?”, I think it’s bad for people to worry like that, I just wanted to write about what happened here (。-_-。)
The injury is very superficial, so it’ll get better really soon! If you see it, I hope you guys can just laugh and say, “She’s such an idiot” LOL
