Sorry this is so late.
The other day I had to leave suddenly from the handshake event in Nagoya. I’m truly sorry for troubling you guys and causing you to worry.

Just the week before last I hadn’t been doing well. I had a fever that continued to keep coming and going over and over again (>_<)

I am really sorry that I had to do this, especially to those who were looking forward to see me and those who came from far away.

Once again I need to restrain myself and take care of my health. I want to focus on getting better so I can show you guys that I’m peppy and do my daily work in perfectly.

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

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!

And lastly,
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

Thank you

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

We had a national handshake event in Hokkaido today ♪♪

I was in the same lane as Reinyan ♪♪

By the way
Today was the last national handshake event that Mariko-sama, Tomo, and Sayaka participated in
It makes me feel a bit lonely, but I know this isn’t a goodbye for forever, right?
Guys, make sure you give them a push on the back (*^^*)

I chatted with Sayaka at the airport on the way home

And when she saw a polar bear stuffed animal when we were in line at the shop there she said, “Oh my god… That polar bear is looking at Sayaka (>_<)”

So I bought it LOL LOL LOL

Since this was her last handshake event, this also means ‘thanks for your hard work’
I told her to take it and treat it with love as if it were me
In the end I wrote “Takamina” on polar bear-kun in permanent marker LOL

Sayaka really took a liking to him
I love that girlish side of you LOL

By the way, today is my cat Nyaa-chan’s 3rd birthday ♪♪

She’s gotten so big LOL
Congrats ♪♪♪

She’s getting a TON of love at my parent’s house right now ♪( *`ω´)

Well I can’t really fall asleep today, so I’m going to practice dubbing for the Smurfs until I want to sleep (`_´)ゞ

I have to get up early tomorrooow
