AKB48 general election! Swimsuit surprise announcement translation part 4
29th Suda Akari
Her handshake will save the world!
Fans are parts of myself.
Q - First, tell us about your thoughts on ranking 29th.
I was truly happy when I stood in front of everyone. I was grateful from the bottom of my heart. But when I calmed down and considered my ranking again I confess I was unsatisfied. Not because of my ranking, but with myself because there are still a lot of departments in which I need to improve. But I like to have this part of bitterness in me, even with it I’m very happy.
Q - This one year, you really gave your best during the handshake events right?
It’s not something I had to work hard on. Rather it’s something I had to do for myself (alt : it was a matter of course for myself). In SKE48 all the members are granted the same chance to communicate/bound via their blogs, stage and handshake events. I simply swore to myself not to neglect any of those 3.
Q - Then, what goal did you set to yourself for the year to come?
I want to be someone who brings as many people as possible to say : “I’m in good mood just by looking at her” “She gives me energy”. I also want to do more photo shootings. I love my own dorsal muscles and upper arms which are said by others to be beautiful, so I’d like for more people to notice them. But more than anything, Akari really loves her fans, they are a part of herself even more vital than her spinal column. I hope I can convey those feelings properly.
I really really love them! (Repeating it a good dozen of times…)
Fierce nerve Akarinrin, all together? Akarinri～n! (^o^)ノ (tln : 勇気凛々、あかりんりん、皆一緒に？ あかりんりーん！/ Yuuki rinrin, minna isshoni? Akarinri～n)
Suda Akari, also known as Akarin.
Thanks to all of you, I was able to enter the Under Girls selection for the 2nd year in a row. This is such a great joy for me. I’m so lucky, being able to appear in a new song and experiencing this moment of bliss with you all. Thank you very much.
30th Furukawa Airi
All for the sake of 2D
We ascended to the stage together, 「Chibi Airin」,「Gugutasu-tan」and myself.
Q - This is your first time ranking. What else, you’ve reached a superb 30th place.
My goal was to be among the 64 members ranking simply. And then in the flash results report I was 22nd. When I first heard that I was really shocked, I even wondered if it was a prank. But this time, above all else, during the elections period certain fans made 「Furukawa Journal」fliers and handed them over during handshake events. To know that such thing happened made me really happy.
Q - And thus when your name was called you walked toward the stage. During your speech you extended your left hand and opened it, presenting your fans with「Chibi Airin」and「Gugutasu-tan」.
In my campaign video I made the declaration that we would 「stand on stage, the 3 of us together」, so I had to think how to make it possible. And so, that day, before we went on stage to dance, I used an oil pen to draw on my hand. But as I clutched my hands, it started to blur because of the sweat. I didn’t expected to be call that late.
Q - Please a declaration regarding your goal for this year.
I think it would be good if I progressively show different facet of my personality. People will get tired of me if I don’t show any change.
Q - A cool analysis if I may. Today too Furukawa-san shows a serein image.
Hahaha. And then, to celebrate the position I was granted, I definitely want to sing a wonderful anison (laugh).
Really, really thank you!!!
I’m such a lucky person!
From now on Furukawa Airin will keep going on will all she has! (tln : “全力全開 / zenryoku zenkai”, Nanoha trademark expression).
