Can’t even imagine something cooler than this…
My joy of happiness!
Matsui Rena (Team E)
First of all, I want to thank everyone supporting me.
I still haven’t organized my thoughts so I’m not sure what to start talking about, but…
I always think that, when I’m on stage, I have fans casting a spell on me.
That’s why I wrote “Cast a spell…” as a slogan on this year’s Election Poster.
No matter what happens, when I stand on the stage the fans always support me with all their might, welcome me with a smile, rejoice or get sad with me over anything.
And I believe that all that turns into confidence both for me and for the entire group.
This time I received a really wonderful present and I believe I’ve had you cast spells on me so many times that my whole life won’t be enough to use all this magic.
I’m sure that, aside from all the people here right now, there’s many other people watching this on TV.
So, please, let me convey my gratitude once again.
Thank you so much for this wonderful present.
I’ll keep working hard from now on as well.
Host: You were 29th in 2010, then you got 11th, and then 10th two times ina row. You finally made it into the first 7, didn’t you?
Rena: I’m really happy. My fans were always so kind to keep saying “Let’s make it into the first 7, okay?” so, every year, when my name gets called in the Sousenkyo…
During the hand-shake events after the elections, the fans act considerate towards me and say they’re sorry, so…every single year (when her name gets called), all at once I can hear those “I’m sorry” and I can see those faces…
But this time I could break through the goal - the 7th position - I’ve been chasing after together with you, so the first things I could see in my mind were the wonderful smiles of my fans.
I’m very happy.
Host: How do you intend to lead SKE from now on?
Rena: There are also members who, even though they ranked in the preliminary results, couldn’t hear, today, their names called.
I’m sure lots of members feel frustrated right now.
And there’s also lots of them, sitting right behind me, tasting happiness.
Together with everyone, I’d like to join all those feelings and convey them to the fans.
So please, be sure to accept them!
I’m counting on you!
Host: Will you - like you stated - go on aggressively this year?
Rena: Yes, I want to go on aggressively! My current position is the 7th but I’ll absolutely get into the senbatsu for the next single as well and I’ll manage to sing sooner than usual. You know, the singing parts are generally decided from the top position and going down, so I want to work hard in order to be able to obtain a part that would let me sing sooner than usual - even if just a bit .
Host: Lastly, did you manage to gain confidence in yourself?
Rena: Yes, I gained confidence! If I was able to go through this year without making many negative speeches, is definitely because you all warmly watched over me. Next year I’d like to work so hard that I’ll become overly self-conscious!
Most accurate character description ever.
OMG! this actually happened!!! awesome!! XD
Putting into many feelings of gratitude…
A night passed after yesterday and finally my head, that kept being noisy, got silent.
First of all, I’m sorry if yesterday I wasn’t able to tell you the result and concey my gratitude right after the end…
Rena and her creatures. Yes, she is Matsui Rena.
Thanks for this, hontoni arigatou~~ >O
Short article from TV Asahi online website regarding 「Kiss Datte Hidarikiki」first performance on Sunday 12th during HS event in Pacifico Yokohama.
SKE Matsui Jurina, knocking Rena over with an intense “kiss”?!
AKB48’s sister group SKE48 made the surprise presentation of their new song to be released September 19th during their handshake event, hold in Yokohama today (Kanagawa prefecture). The 16 senbatsu members, with at the front line aces Matsui Jurina (15) and Matsui Rena (21), all wearing the blue sailor uniform used for the shooting of the music video, presented the audience with a dynamic and fascinating dance, while the members themselves were displaying striking expressions of maidens soliciting a kiss.
Resounded in the hall clamor of the 12500 fans fainting in agony as, for a finish, the 2 aces “WMatsui” “exchanged a passionate kiss”.
Rena, blushing 「We ended up way closer than I had planned, what happened really…」
Jurina, with a smile 「During practice, Rena would always turn her face away, I’m glad she turn straight toward me for the first time today 」.
About the “kiss scene” and Rena who had closed her eyes, Jurina made the following comment 「I kept my eyes open. I thought she was cute」. In front of Jurina taking up the role of the little devil, Rena appeared cringing.
It was also announced that this new single would be released the same day as the 1st album of the group. AKB48 itself never had an album and cd ranking 1st in the charts on the same day up to date and SKE48 is aiming at achieving this feat.
Rena shared her ambitions on the subject「I would be really happy if we managed. I want cross AKB-san’s expectations (tln : alt -> do more than they think we are capable of), try ourselves to bigger projects, and surprise our fans by pushing our own limits」.
OMG! Sawako!!! O_O so HOT!!!!
