Mieko: And so, a letter from someone.
I wonder who it’s from?
Mieko: Akane-chan, please move over here.
Churi: Next to Manatsu!
Everyone: that’s good that’s good
Churi: *takes a deep breath*
Churi: Manatsu! Happy 16th birthday!
When we joined SKE48 three years ago, Manatsu was still a 13 years old first
year middle school student, and I was a 17 year old third year high schooler.
The Manatsu at first was shyer than the others, it was hard for me to
talk to this sort of Manatsu.
The one that let both of us get together was the Aozora Kataomoi senbatsu.
Both of us were chosen from KII (Ogi-chan was still a kenkyuusei)
It’s was our first senbatsu, our first music video, our first time doing
so many PR for Aozora Kataomoi
There were so many firsts, we were feeling uneasy, but both of us said “we
would worked hard to appeal KII! “
And so after that, manachuri was formed! That was the catalyst that allowed me
to become good friends with Manatsu
*spastic smile by churi*
And so, after that, we both continued to enter senbatsu, and worked hard
But, during the announcement for the Okey-dokey senbatsu, we both felt
However, Manatsu had a never give up attitude
And so, that night, I called Manatsu, and both of us talked a lot.
The details are a secret among us both.
“Even though Manatsu is frustrated, but you are not alone. Please don’t bear
with it alone, count more on me” I’ve always thought this.
“I feel frustrated because I cannot hit the expectations of everyone” Manatsu
would always say.
But, Manatsu, in this year, grew very quickly without noticing it.
I was always been beside you observing.
Manatsu has many things that I do not have.
Actually I’m occasionally jealous of Manatsu.
That’s why, have more confidence!
Manatsu has many comrades, and the support of kind fans!
Of course, I am one of them.
Do not be impaitent, and face yourself.
Manatsu! Thank you for looking after me, please continue to look after me!
I love you!
Manatsu will definately grow more this year.
