こんばんみくりん( ̄(工) ̄)
Konbanmikurin ( ̄(工) ̄)

今日は、水着サプライズの撮影や取材をしてきました!
Today we had our photoshoots and interviews for the Mizugi Surprise!

撮影は、とても緊張しました!
去年より大人水着でびっくりしました…!
I was really nervous during the photoshoot!
Surprisingly, I got a more mature swimsuit to wear compared to last year...!

水着は、あまり慣れてなくて…どんなポージングをしたらいいのか…先輩達を見て沢山学びました!!
I'm still not really used to wearing swimsuits...like, what poses are good...so I learned a lot by watching my seniors!!

そして取材は昨日の総選挙から1日経って、思ったことやこれからのことについて話しました。
As for the interview, now that a day has passed since the sousenkyo, we talked about what I thought that night as well as the impact on the future.

改めて、28位の重さを感じました…。
皆さん本当にありがとうございます!
I acutely felt the weight of being 28th Place once again...
Everyone, I can't thank you enough!

会いに来れなくても応援して下さる方、SNSを見て好きになって下さる方もいると思います!
なのでこれからも、沢山のSNSを頑張ってショウルームも毎回話すだけじゃなく企画とかも立てて地道にやって行けたらなと思います!!
There's probably people who can't come to see me in person but still supported me, or people who came to like me through SNS.
Because of that, from now on I want to have a steady stream of SNS coming, and with SHOWROOM, I'll try to plan ahead and not just talk!!


ショウルームは、生配信!そしてファンの皆さんの意見もちゃんと聞ける!それを活かして!
頑張ります。
SHOWROOM is always a live broadcast, ! I'd also like to hear opinions from fans! I'll use that to improve! I'll do my best.

移動時間は、なるちゃんと隣同士で座って熊本について沢山話しました!〇〇行ったことある?〇〇は?って…
While we were going to work, I sat next to Naruchan and we talked a lot about Kumamoto! Have you been to so and so place? What about this and that place? Things like that...

同じ熊本出身がHKTにはいないから新鮮で楽しかったです!
Even though we're both from Kumamoto, she's not in HKT so it had a fresh and enjoyable feeling to it!

そしてもう直ぐで沖縄バイバイになっちゃいます。寂しいけどまたいつか来れたらなと思います!
Now it's almost time to say bye bye to Okinawa. It's sad, but I'm almost sure I'll be back someday!

沖縄ハイサーイ!
本当に28位、ウレシーサー!
Okinawa, thanks, and bye! (TL Note: Mikurin is saying this in the Okinawan dialect)
I was seriously ecstatic to get 28th Place! (TL Note: This time, it's a pun involving "ureshii" (happy) and shiisaa (the Okinawan lion dog. Mikurin combined the two for "ureshiisaa")

家族に、沖縄のおいっしいお土産沢山持って帰るぞぉぉ!!!!
I'm going to buy tons of delicious Okinawan snacks for my family!!!!

こんばんみくりん( ̄(工) ̄)
Konbanmikurin ( ̄(工) ̄)

皆さん!!!!
Everyone!!!!


AKB選抜総選挙28位でした!!!!
I got 28th Place in he AKB Senbatsu Sousenkyo!!!!

もぅ本当に、信じられないくらい嬉しいです。。途中から諦めかけそうになってました…
I'm so happy that I almost can't believe it... I had pretty much given up halfway...

さ んが隣にいて、アンダーガールズから一緒に手を繋いでさしこちゃんが〝大丈夫、大丈夫…! ここまで来たら上を目指そう!〟
って。。
ホッとするとまた泣いちゃいます。。
ボーダーが高くて本当に不安だっから。。
I was sitting next to Sashiko-chan so I holding her hand the whole time during the announcement of Undergirls. She kept saying, "You'll be fine, you definitely made it in! If you've come this far, you might as well aim high!"
I'd feel ok and then I would be on the verge of tears again...
Because the vote count had already gotten so high at that point, I was feeling really uneasy...


今回は本当に、
投票して下さった皆さん 応援して下さった皆さんありがとうございました!!!!!!!!
This time,
I really have to say thank you to everyone who voted for me and everyone who supported me!!!!!!!!

あと、さしこちゃんも異例の3連覇!
とても凄いです。。おめでとうございます!
Also, Sashiko-chan took the crown 3 times in a row, which is unprecedented!
It's really incredible...congratulations!

私は、さしこちゃんとさくちゃんの次にランクインさせて頂いたんですが、来年。。
さしこちゃんが出ない今!
I was the highest ranked member right after Sashiko-chan and Saku-chan...
but next year Sashko-chan isn't going to run!

HKT48を私が前を向いて引っ張れる存在になりたいと思っています!
I want to become someone who can pull HKT48 forward!

来年は、若手に劣らずHKT48旋風を吹かせたいと思います!
Next year, without losing to the newer members, I want to be someone who can propel HKT48 into people's consciousness! 

そして、今回目標のアンダーガールズに入らせて頂き28位という最高の順位と28355票もの愛を頂き…
これは、本当に皆さん一人一人が頑張らなかったら掴めなかったことです
My rank this year, 28th Place in Undergirls, which was my goal, is the highest I've ever gotten. What came with that was 28355 votes of love...
This was something that wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of each and every single one of you T_T

頑張って下さった皆様、本当にありがとうございました。。
All I can say is thank you very much to everyone that gave this their all...

努力が報われました
Your hard work was what made this happen T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T


これからも、HKT48の田中美久の応援をよろしくお願いします。
Please keep supporting HKT48's Tanaka Miku from here on.

ファンの皆さんの心、離しません!
皆さんが、ほんとに大好きです!!!!
I won't be separated from the fans' hearts!
I really do love everyone!!!!

私にとって
とっても自慢のファンの皆さんです
My fans are a source of extreme pride for me .

HKT48の前を引っ張れる存在になれるように頑張ります!絶対的存在になってやる!
I will do my best to become someone who can lead HKT48! Someone who is indispensable to the group!

さて明日の撮影と取材、頑張ります!
For now, I'm going to do my best for the photoshoots and interviews tomorrow!

興奮しすぎて昨日より寝れない。。
I'm so elated that I'm going to have even more trouble sleeping than yesterday...

Miyawaki Sakura Google+ / Jun 18, 2017, 12:02 am (JST)

こんばんは!
Good evening!


総選挙開票イベント終わりました!
The vote tally event for the sousenkyo is over!

HKTメンバー、16人ランクインさせて頂きました!ランクインおめでとう!そして、ありがとうございます!
16 members from HKT ranked in! Congratulations, everyone! Also, thank you!


私自身は、第四位という結果を頂きました!
皆さん、本当にありがとうございます!!
本当に本当にありがとうございます!
As for myself, I got 4th Place in the final results!
Thank you very much, everyone!!
Really, really, thank you so much!


皆さんに一つ言いたい事は…
ごめんねは禁止です
One thing I want to say to everyone is...
you can't apologize.

今回の総選挙を見ていて思ったんです…
順位を維持することすら難しい総選挙で、繰り上げと言えどもランクアップできた事は、誇りに持ちたい、と。
Looking at this year's sousenkyo...
even just holding my position was difficult, so to be able to gain more votes and rank up
is something I can take pride in, I think. 

しかも、一度も順位を落とさずランクアップし続けられていて、、
Furthermore, I've kept rising up the ranks year by year, not once dropping...

自信が持てないと言いがちな私ですが、総選挙での結果が、ファンの皆さんが、私の自信だし、自慢なんです!
For someone like me who tends to have no confidence in myself, my fans are my source of assurance and what I can boast about in the results of the sousenkyo.


まずは、本当にありがとうございますと伝えたい。そして、お疲れ様でした!
First off, I really want to convey just how grateful I am. After that, thank you for all the hard work you all put in!


悔しいよりも、嬉しいが強いです!
More than frustration, happiness is what overwhelms me!

五位まで呼ばれた後、残る4人は誰だ!って徳光さんが言われてました。
After 5th Place was announced, Tokumistsu-san wondered aloud about the 4 people left.

わぁ、その4人に残れた。って。
しかも、その4人の中にHKTが2人もいるぞ!
って。その瞬間本当に嬉しかった。
I thought, "Wow, I'm actually counted among these 4 members."
What's more, among those 4 people were 2 from HKT!
In that moment, I really was happy.


総選挙は、残酷です。
誰もが喜べるイベントではない。
The sousenkyo is cruel.
It's not an event in which everyone can rejoice in.


けれど。
私は、総選挙というイベントを、誰よりも楽しめた!
But.
I enjoyed the sousenkyo, the event that it is, more than anyone!


ファンの皆さんも同じ気持ちだったら嬉しいです。
I'd be glad if the fans felt the same way as I do.



来年のことは、また追い追いね。
とりあえず、今日は喜びましょう
As for next year, let's take it step by step.
Today, let's just celebreate.

本当に本当に本当に!
ありがとうございます!
Really, really, so much!
Thank you very much!


明日は。早速この選抜でお仕事!頑張ります!
Tomorrow we immediately have our first jobs as part of this sousenkyo! I'll work hard!


おやすみなさい。
さくら咲け!
Good night.
Sakura bloom!

Nevertheless, / Tanaka Miku Mobame / May 31, 2017, 10:07 pm (JST)

おやすみの前に1つ言いたいことがあるんだけどね、速報で、
1日で6681票ってとても凄いことだと思うの!!!!
I had one more thing I wanted to say before I go to sleep. 
Receiving 6681 votes in just one day for the preliminaries is nothing short of amazing!!!!

みんなすごく頑張ってくれたんだよね( i _ i )手も痛かったよね?大変だったよね?
Everyone, you all worked really hard, didn't you ( i _ i ) Do your hands hurt? It was exhausting, right?

ここまで行けるのが本当にすごい!
To be able to come this far is really incredible!

本当にありがたい!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm extremely grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!

凄いことなんだよ?
It's wonderful, isn't it?

みんなーぁぁ、16日までにはもぅ腱鞘炎覚悟だね(^^;)笑笑
You're already all prepared to get tendonitis by the 16th, huh (^^;) Haha


本当にありがとう。
みんなが本当に誇らしいです…
Really though, thanks.
You're all outstanding...

私のファンの皆さんは、世界一すごい!私はそう思ってる。そう信じてる。皆んな優しくて温かくてそしてあと1つ付け加えるなら熱い人達ばかりだって。
All of my fans are the best fans in the world! That's what I think. That's what I believe. Everyone's kind, everyone's warm, and if I could add one more adjective, it's that they're all passionate.


それだけを言いたかったの。
That's what I wanted to say.

おやすみなさい^_^
Good night ^_^
 
 

45th Place / Tanaka Miku Mobame / May 31, 2017, 9:21 pm (JST)

まず、、速報順位45位でした。。
First off...I ranked in at 45th Place in the preliminary rankings...

ほんとに、ほんとに、ありがとうございます!
とてもとても、嬉しいです。
Thank you so, so much!
I'm really, really happy.

でも目標のアンダーガールズには届かず…
まだ速報って言うけど。。
However, I wasn't able to reach my goal of Undergirls...
I know it's just the preliminaries, but...

ちょっと不安になっちゃうかなぁ、、
安心させてほしい。( i _ i )
I've grown a bit more worried because of this...
I want someone to comfort me. ( i _ i )


去年の初めは、45位
去年の終わりも、45位
今年の初めも、45位
I started off with 45th Place last year
At the end of last year, I was still 45th Place
Now, I'm at 45th Place at the start of this year too


私、45位という数字に好かれているんでしょうか。。。
何かあるのでしょうか、、
I wonder if the number 45 likes me...
What happened there...

んーーーなんとか打破したい!
Mmm~~~I want to break through that barrier!

この45と言う数字をぶっ壊してもっと上に行きたい!!!!
I want to smash through the number 45 and reach higher heights!!!!

私の力じゃ壊せない。。
ここは、みんなで力を合わせないと本当に無理だと思う…
I can't burst through with my power alone though...
For this, we need everyone's power or it's impossible...


お願いっしか言えない
頑張ろう!しか言えないけど
All I can do is ask of people
and all I can say is that I'll do my best, but

私も家族もちゃんと投票した数字がちゃんと目に見えるものになった。
the fact that people are diligently voting is evident to me and my family.

速報第8位
ありがとうございます。
Thank you for
8th Place in the preliminaries.


目標一位だったから
残念ながら達成出来ませんでした。
でも、一日でこんなに沢山の票が入るなんて
本当に嬉しいです。ありがとうございます。
My goal was 1st Place, so it's unfortunate
that I wasn't able to achieve my objective.
However, to be able to receive so many votes
in the span of one day makes me really happy. Thank you. 



そして、やっぱり悔しいです。
Nonetheless, it is frustrating.



HKTの風を吹かせたかった…
HKT凄いねって言われたかった…
I wanted to be a wind that pushes HKT on...
I wanted people to say, "Oh wow, HKT is amazing..."

やられたなぁ…って気持ちというか…
For some reason, I feel hurt...or something like that...



うーーーん…
Ummmm...




HKTでワンツーフィニッシュしたい…
I want HKT to have it's One Two Finish...

2位になりたい…どうしても…
I want to in 2nd Place...no matter what...



HKTの為に頑張りたいって思います…
I want to do my best for HKT48's sake...





とりあえずお家のご飯食べてきます…
Anyways, I'm going to go eat dinner with my family...

From Tomorrow / Miyawaki Sakura Mobame / May 29, 2017, 10:58 pm

ついに
今年の総選挙がスタートしますね。
This year's sousenkyo
is finally starting, huh.





正直、ここまで精神的に追い込まれている
総選挙は初めてかもしれません。苦笑
Honestly, this is probably the first sousenkyo
in which I'm so utterly driven into corner mentally. *strained laugh*

ショールームで泣いてしまったこと
悔やんでいるけど
でもそれくらいの覚悟でアイドルをしているって
思ってもらえればなって思います。
I'm sorry that I cried on SHOWROOM, but
I hope you understand how seriously
I treat being an idol.



楽しみながら
本気で
Enjoying myself while
going all out


目標達成したいと思います。
that's how I want to achieve my goals.





よろしくお願いします。
Please help me.




速報一位。
1st Place in the preliminaries.


普通に考えると無理だよって
何度も色んな方にも言われるし
予想順位も四位だから
If you think about it normally, it's pretty impossible.
So many people have told me that
realistically, I'm probably looking at 4th Place.


私達の本気を見せて
みんなをびっくりさせたい。な。
I want to show what I can really do,
to the extent that everyone will be shocked.


って。



さっしーの投票数でみんながえーーー!ってなる
あの瞬間。
When Sasshi's vote count is announced,
and everyone is like "Ehhh"

私も一度味わいたい…って。
I too want to experience that instant in time.

思うんです。
That's how I feel.


すごーく無理難題かもしれない。
It's really an unreasonable demand, I know.



でも、今年の宮脇咲良は一味違うって
思ってもらえたらなって。
But, I want people to see, to sense that
this year's Miyawaki Sakura is somehow different from before.



頑張りたいです。
I will do my best.



今年もよろしくお願いします。
This year I'm in your hands once again.




楽しんだもん勝ち!
私達が一番楽しもう!!!(^_^)!!
If I can enjoy myself, that's a win!
Let us be the ones having the most fun!!!(^_^)!!

Miyawaki Sakura's Speech During Her 2017 Seitansai

まずは、本当に今日来てくださった皆さん、ロビー観賞してる皆さん、DMMで観てる皆さん、本当にいつもありがとうございます。
First off, thank you very much to the people who actually came to the theater today, the people watching in the lobby and the people watching on DMM.

私は、特段何かができるわけじゃない普通の人なんですけども、そんな私にこんなに好きって言ってくれて、応援してくれて、凄い私は本当に幸せ者だなって思います。
Even though I'm just a normal person who isn't anything special, to be so loved and supported, I am a very fortunate individual.

ほんとに、普段から自信がないのは皆さんはさくめーるとかで知ってると思うんですけども、ほんとにネガティブだし、皆さんに迷惑ばっかりかけちゃうと思うんですけど、今年は総選挙で2位を目指しますって言ったんですけども、実際に言うとそんなに自信なんてほんとになくて。
I think you may all know from SakuMail or other places, but I habitually have no self-confidence so I'm really a negative person. I knew that this would cause trouble for everyone, but I said that I wanted to aim for 2nd place in this year's sousenkyo even though I myself don't have the confidence that I can do it.


もしかしたら順位落ちちゃうんじゃないかなとか、今年は総選挙に出ないメンバーもいるので、その分私が頑張らなきゃとは思うんですけど、自信がどうしてもついてこなくて。
By some chance, maybe I'll actually drop in ranking, and even though I feel I need to work extra hard to make up for the space left empty by the members who are not participating, no matter what I can't seem to gather the courage.

そんな時にファンの皆さんの言葉で笑顔でいようとか、ほんとにたくさん元気をもらってます。
At those times, having fans that remind me to live with a smile, I really receive the drive from you all.

今年はHKTのために頑張ろうって決めて。紅白にやっぱりどうしても単独で出たくて。最近は悔しい思いばっかりしてるので、HKTとしてみんなで笑って、最高の思い出だねって言えるようになりたいなって思ってます。
I decided that this year I would work hard on behalf of HKT. I want us to appear separately from AKB, no matter what. Recently, we've had nothing but disappointments, so I want us all to be able laugh together as HKT, to have a memory together that we can all call the best.

なので、無理だと思うんです…無理って言ったらダメ。はい、ダメでーす(客笑)
It might be impossible, but... wait, I can't say that. Right, I'm not going to say that word *audience laughs*

頑張りたいので、総選挙2位を目指してます(小声)
I really do want to give my best, so I'm aiming for 2nd place in the sousenkyo (at this point, Sakura's voice has become small probably due to uncertainty in herself or realizing what she's asking of her fans).

けど、HKTメンバーがほんとにいっぱい入っていってほしいなと思うし、今年は第一党を絶対取りたいと思うので、皆さん応援をよろしくお願いします。
Besides that, I earnestly want lots of HKT members to rank in and be the group with the most ranked members, so everyone please lend us your support.

あとは、私は絶対に皆さんを裏切らないので安心して推してください(客笑)
Um, also, I absolutely won't betray your trust so you can oshi me without worrying *audience laughs*

そして、卒業もまだ決めてないというか、頭には浮かんでいないので、これからもまだまだ皆さんはヲタ卒できないと思いますが(客笑) よろしくお願いします。
Furthermore, I haven't decided to graduate and the idea hasn't even entered my mind yet, so you all can't graduate from being a wota either *audience laughs* Please keep giving me your support.

以上です。ありがとうございました
That's all. Thank you very much. *audience applauds*

Miyawaki Sakura Google+ / May 3, 2017, 12:02 am (JST)

こんばんは!
Good evening!

今日は、生誕祭でした!
Today was my birthday show!


来てくださった皆さん、ロビー鑑賞してくださった皆さん、DMMを見てくださった皆さん、リアルでは見られなかったけどこれから見るよって方も、本当に本当にありがとうございます。
Thank you very, very much to those who came to watch it, those who watched it in the lobby, the people who watched it on DMM as well as the people who couldn't watch it live but are going to watch it later.

生誕祭って、とっても素敵な場だなぁって。
改めて思いました。
I once again felt that
a birthday show really is a marvelous occasion.




こんなに沢山の人におめでとうって言ってもらえるって、アイドルにならなかったらなかったことだから、本当に奇跡みたいなことだな…って。感無量でした。
If I hadn't become an idol, I wouldn't have had so many people to celebrate with, so it really is something like a miracle. It's an inexpressible feeling.


色んな事を言おうって思っていたけど。
昔から来てくださっている皆さんや、もちろん握手会やイベントに来てくださる皆さんの顔を見ていたら、嬉しくて、幸せで、考えていた事殆ど飛んじゃいました。笑
I had a lot of things I wanted to say, but.
Seeing people who have been coming since a long time ago, and of course the people who come to handshakes and other events, just seeing their faces brought me such happiness and joy that the stuff I was thinking about pretty just flew out my head. lol


でも、ちゃんと本当の気持ちを言えたかなぁって思います。
Nevertheless, I hope I was able to properly express my real feelings.

改めて、あおいちゃん、素敵なお手紙をありがとう。泣きました…笑
あおいとは、昔から本当に仲よくて、いつも同じユニットをしていたよね!それは、今でも変わらず!だから、隣にいてくれると安心感があるし、息が合うんだ。最近は、真面目な話もするようになって、お互い大人になったなぁって思います。あおいは、キャプテンとしてもうすっかりかっこよくなって!凄いなぁって思います。前から、キャプテンらしさはあったけど、最近はより頼りがいのある姿に惚れ惚れしてるよ。いつもありがとう。
Once again, Aoichan, thanks for such a superb letter. I cried... lol
Aoi and I really became good friends since a long time ago and we've been in the same unit ever since! That hasn't changed, even now! Because of that, when I'm next to her I have a sense of calm and we work well together. Recently, we've even gotten to the point where we have serious talks together and it feels like we've both become grown ups. With Aoi becoming captain, she's also turned completely cool! I think she's amazing. She had the qualities of a captain before too, but I admire how lately she's become even more reliable. Thanks for everything.


あおいの手紙を読んでも感じましたが、最近は、私は1人じゃないんだなって思える事ばかりです。
先輩がいたから挫折したりつまづいた時どうするべきが学べたし、同期がいつも隣にいたから、負けたくないって思ったし、一緒に頑張ろうって思えたし、後輩が居たから、自分のことばかり考えていたらダメなんだ、後輩を支えようと思えるし。
Aoi's letter also reminded me of this, but lately I've been thinking that I'm not alone after all. Because we have our seniors, when we have setbacks, when we stumble, when we're not sure what to do, we still have people we can learn from. With members in the same generation, we have people who share the same conviction of not losing to anyone else, people that want to try their best together. Finally, with juniors, we're reminded that we can't only think about ourselves, we must support them too.

HKTだったから、私は心から楽しめて、1番のグループだって思える。
Because I'm in HKT, I'm able to enjoy [my days] from the bottom of my heart. I think it's the best group in the world.

みんながいなかったら、今の私はいないから。本当に感謝ばかりです。
If everyone wasn't here, then the me right now wouldn't exist either. I have nothing but gratitude.


19歳をHKTとして迎えられて良かった。
I'm glad I was able to welcome being a 19 year old as an HKT member.


メンバー、ファンの皆さんと出会えてよかった。
I'm delighted to have met all the fans and members.


そう、心から思えた生誕祭でした。
Yeah, the birthday show really was like something out of my dream.


私は、ネガティヴ気味だし。笑 普段から自信があまり無いけれど、、
Even though I have a tendency to be pessimistic. lol Usually, I don't have much confidence in myself...

ファンの皆さんが、私の誇りだし、自信です。これからも、私のことを支えて下さったら嬉しいです。よろしくお願いします。
When the fans praise me, that becomes my confidence. From here on, it would be my blessing if you could keep supporting me. Please watch over me.






そうそう!
今日出演したメンバーが、私のことをSNSに書いてくれてて本当に嬉しい。こんな時しか、どう思ってるかなんて知れないから、そういう意味でも生誕祭好き!いつもみんなありがとう!大好き!
Oh yeah!
I'm also thrilled that the members who performed today are writing about me on SNS. It's only during a time like this that I can know how they feel about me, so that's another reason I like birthday shows! Thank you always! I love you all!

そして!
And, and!


しげちゃん、司会をしてくれてありがとう!
しげちゃんが居たから、私は頑張ってこれたし、これからも頑張れるよ!これからも、末長〜〜く!よろしくね
Thanks to Shigechan for being the MC!
It's because Shigechan is here that I can continuously strive to be the best I can, even from here on!  From here and for~~ever!
Take care of me 


おやすみなさい。
さくら咲け!
Good night.
Sakura bloom!

Motomura Aoi's Letter to Miyawaki Sakura for her 19th Birthday

咲良へ
Dear Sakura,

生誕祭遅くなっちゃったけど、19歳のお誕生日おめでとう。
Even though your birthday show is late, Happy 19th Birthday.

咲良とはオーディションの時に仲良くなったね。
We became good friends when we auditioned, didn't we.

初期の頃からずっと咲良を近くで見てきました。最初っからプロ意識が高く、凄いアイドルで、笑顔が可愛いなーと思いながら見てたよ。
I was watching you closely from the very beginning. Even at that point, just looking at you I felt you were a pro who was highly aware of herself and a phenomenal idol with a cute smile.

スポーツばっかりやってきて、あんまりアイドルを知らなかった私は凄いなー、アイドルってこういうもんなんだって近くで学ばせてもらってました。勝手にごめんなさい(笑)
For someone like me who only did sports and didn't know much about idols, from observing you, I thought, "Wow, she's amazing. So that's what idols are like..." Because of that, I stood close to you and learned. Sorry for doing that arbitrarily (lol)

手つなの頃からずっとユニットが一緒で、チームも一緒で、ほぼ離れたことがないから今でも隣に咲良がいると落ち着きます。
Ever since TeTsuna, we've been in the same unit and team without ever really being separated, so even now, just having you here gives me peace of mind.

一緒にふざけたり、騒いだり、笑い合ったり、チームについてHKTについて真面目に話したりもします。
We joke together, we mess around together, we laugh together, and we talk seriously about the team and HKT together. 


咲良はほんとにHKTのこと、チームKⅣのことが好きだなと思います。そしてそれが凄いあふれだしてる。いつも伝わってきて嬉しくなります。
I know you really love HKT and Team KIV, to the point that your love overflows. I'm happy that you convey that each time. 

きっとつらいことや大変なことも多いと思う。HKTのメンバーに会うことが少なくて寂しいと思います。それは私たちも寂しいです。咲良とはもっと何でも言い合える仲になって、頼りにし合って、支え合っていきたなって思ってます。
Undoubtedly, you go through many painful and difficult things. Not being able to meet with the other HKT members, you must feel isolated. In fact, we feel lonely too. I always want to talk more with Sakura, have us both rely on each other more, and both support each other more.

あのウィンブルドンでキャピキャピしてた私たちがキャプテンと副キャプテンだよ。あの時は想像もしてなかったよね。
We, who were brimming with youthful enthusiasm during Wimbledon, are now the captain and vice captain respectively. Who could've imagined this at that time.

頼りにしてます。
I'm depending on you.

大好きです。
I love you,

これからもよろしくね。
Let's work together from here on too.

本村碧唯
Motomura Aoi 

The following is the MC after the letter was read.

宮脇咲良「泣いちゃった(涙)」
Sakura: I'm crying now (T_T)
村重杏奈「あおいたんからのお手紙どうでした?」
Aanya: What did you think about Aoitan's letter?
宮脇咲良「嬉しいです」
Sakura: I'm glad
本村碧唯「泣いてる?」
Aoitan: Are you really crying?
宮脇咲良「そう」
Sakura: Yes
本村碧唯「やったー」客笑
Aoitan: Hehe, yesss! (audience laughs)
宮脇咲良「ほんとに、みんなも寂しいと思ってくれてるんだなと」
Sakura: I was wondering whether you all missed me too.
本村碧唯「思ってるよ」
Aoitan: We do, you know?
宮脇咲良「嬉しかったです」
Sakura: I'm grateful to here that

Tanaka Miku Google+ / Mar 27, 2017, 7:47 pm (JST)

こんばんみくりん( ̄(工) ̄)
Konbanmikurin ( ̄(工) ̄)

今日は超十代のリハーサルをして、
その後もう一個お仕事をしてから
総選挙立候補用紙を19:28に渡しに行きました
Today I rehearsed for the Ultra Teens Fes,
had another job
and from there I went to submit my candidacy application for the sousenkyo.

今回は、
総選挙について書かせて頂きたいと思います。
Allow me to write about the sousenkyo here.

まず、去年は、初ランクイン最年少中学生でのランクイン。私の夢を叶えて下さりとても嬉しくてありがたい一年でした。
First off, last year I was the youngest member to rank in as a middle school student. Having my dream come true, it was a year full of joy and gratitude.

その後も、紅白選抜と中学生でなこちゃんと2人で入らさせて頂きとても記念になりました。
After that, along with Nakochan I made Kouhaku senbatsu as a middle school student, a perfect way to cap off those years.

そして…
私の今年の総選挙での目標は
出来れば、、
45位より少しでも上の順位に行きたいです。。
So...
my goal for this year's sousenkyo
if possible...
even if just a little bit, I want to go up the ranks...

去年の総選挙45位
紅白選抜も45位。。
Last year's sousenkyo, I was 45th
In the Kouhaku senbatsu I was also 45th

何故か、45位に縁がありましたが、、
For some reason, I seem to have a connection with 45th place

今年は、高校生にもなるので、大きく変わりたいと思い、この45位を打破して去年よりも出来れば高い順位…アンダーガールズに入りたいです!!
This year, I'm becoming a high school student so I want to change in a big way too. I want to beat surpass this 45th place and if possible...enter Undergirls!!

田中美久は絶対に外せない、
そう思わせる存在に少しでもなれるように…
今よりももっと上に行けるような総選挙順位にしたいです。
Tanaka Miku is someone that we can't leave out.
To become someone like that, even if just a little bit...
I want to rise beyond where I am now.

ただ、、今の現状などをみていて
このようなことを軽く口にできる状態じゃないということ。簡単ではない事は分かっています。
However, looking at where I am now,
this is not something I can just say lightly. I know it's not something that will be easy to do.

でも、去年皆さんから頂いた総選挙ランクインと紅白選抜で自信と脱ネガティヴ!で私でも高みの発言をしてもいいのかな?上に上がりたいと思ってもいいのかな?と思いました。
But, from the rank that everyone gave me in last year's sousenkyo and the Kouhaku senbatsu, I was taught self-confidence as well as how to lose my negativeness. Because of that, is it ok if I too say that I want to reach above where I am now? Is it ok to think that I want to reach higher heights? That's what I was thinking.

去年と変わらないままなら、高校生になった今、駄目だと思うんです。
It seems pointless if I couldn't even improve from last year despite being a high school student now.

自分が変わりたいと強く願わないと自分も変わらないし、ましてや、ファンの方達も、どう動いていいのかわからないと思うんです!
I have a strong desire to transform myself, to not stay constant. Not to mention, I think the fans didn't know how to proceed either!



今まで皆さんと頑張ってきた努力を崩したくはありません。
I don't want to destroy all the hard work we've put in together up until now.

6月17日…高校生になって初めての
総選挙は笑いたいです。。
June 17th... the first sounsekyo since entering high school
There, I want to smile...


これ以上ファンの皆さんに悲しい報告をしなくて、明るい報告をし続けて行きたい!
Beyond that, I don't want to deliver depressing news to the fans, I want to continue being able to bring cheerful announcements!

正直、とても怖いです。。お祭りだぁ!と軽くは私には考えれないです。
Honestly, this is very frightening for me... It's not something I can effortlessly think of as a festival.

諦めないで良かった…
そう思える総選挙にしたいです。。
I'm glad I didn't give up...
That's the kind of sousenkyo I'm aiming for...

この総選挙は、
自分の今の立ち位置そしてポジションを皆さんと一緒に変えられる大きなチャンスだと思うんです。
This sousenkyo
is a big chance to work with everyone to change not only my ranking but my own position.

その為にはまたファンの方達のお力を借りる事になってしまいます…。ごめんなさい。
To that end, I have to once again borrow all the fans' strength. I'm sorry.

ファンの皆さんと本気になって
チャンスを掴みたいです。
I want both of us to become serious
and seize the opportunity together.

自分の立ち位置を変えたい。。
ポジションを変えたい…
I want to change my status...
I want to change my position...

投票期間は、
5月30日の10時から6月16日の15時までです。
The voting period is from
May 30th, 10 am to June 16th, 3 pm.

もうすぐです、、気を抜かず
今年の総選挙では45位よりも上の順位に行けるようにファンの皆さんと頑張りたいです!
It's coming up soon... we can't lose focus.
Together with my fans, I want to do all I can to advance to a higher position beyond 45th place in this year's sousenkyo.

私の本気、伝わればいいな。
I hope I was able to earnestly convey my conviction.

Regarding the Sousenkyo / Tanaka Miku Mobame / March 27, 2017, 8:15 pm (JST)

選挙用紙を渡しに行きました!
I turned in my sousenkyo candidacy application!

私が、
選挙用紙を当日に渡しに行けなかったのはずっと選挙の事を直前までじっくり考えててどうしようかなと…
The reason
I couldn't turn it in the first day was because up until now,
I was thinking about the sousenkyo and what to do about it...

もちろん、立候補するつもりでした!
Of course, I was definitely going to participate!

ただ、
不安もやっぱりあって…。なんて書こう。。とか色々考えてました。
However,
I was still uneasy as expected...what should I write...I was thinking about various stuff like that.


去年は初ランクインで最年少で入れて、紅白選抜にも中学生で選ばれました。ファンの方が私の夢を叶えて下さいました。
Last year I ranked in for the first time as the youngest member and I was also chosen for the Kouhaku senbatsu even as a middle school student. The fans made my dream come true.

でも、私も、もう高校生。このままではいけないと思うし、今の自分を変えたいです。いい意味で。去年は良いことも沢山あったけど、初めての選抜落ちを経験したり、そのおかげで見えてくるものもありました。絶対的に呼ばれたり、必要とされるなら今のままでは駄目だと。
Now though, I'm already a high school student. I don't think I can continue just the way I have been, I want to change who I am now. I mean that in a good way. Last year was filled with many blessings, but I also experienced falling from senbatsu for the first time and thanks to that I came to see reality. If I want to be someone who's always called upon for senbatsu, someone who's essential to the group, the me as I am now is no good.

出来れば、、ランクアップしたいです!!
ファンの皆さんとまた本気になりたい!一緒に夢に向かって頑張って行きたい!
If it's possible, I want to rank up!!
Together with my fans, I want to get serious again! I want to turn towards our dreams together and do our very best!

そう思いました。
That's what I thought.

私の今年の目標順位は特になく…
まだ順位とか言える立場じゃないので、、
I don't really have a specific rank I'm aiming for this year...
It's because I'm in no position to say any rank...

でも出来ればランクアップ。したいです
But if at all possible, rank up. That's what I want to do.

紅白選抜や去年の総選挙でも45位で。
私にとってとてもとてもありがたい順位なんですが今よりももっと素晴らしい景色を見て見たいんです。
目指せ!45位打破!!
In both the Kouhaku senbatsu and last year's sousenkyo, I ranked in at 45th place.
To me, that's a number that I'm incredibly, extremely grateful for, but this year I want to see an even more wonderful scene before me.
Let's do this! Surpass 45th place!!

アンダーガールズに入りたいです。
I'd like to enter Undergirls.

そして、無理じゃなかったんだって…
If that's not impossible...

諦めないでよかったって、、
思いたいです。
I'm glad I didn't give up...
I hope I can feel like that.


自分でも今の危機感を分かっている上で立候補しました。
I announced my candidacy knowing full well what a precarious position I'm in right now.

今年も力を貸して頂けませんか?泣
Can you lend me your strength this year too? T_T

そして、いい高校生活をスタートさせたいです…
Also, I hope I can get off to a good start in high school...

階段一緒に登りましょう!
Let's climb up those stairs together!

Tashima Meru Google+ / Mar 25, 2017, 10:56 pm (JST)

こんばんは☆
Good evening ☆

総選挙立候補届けを出してきました。
I finished submitting my application for the sousenkyo.

11時から受付開始だったので、ちょうどに出しに行きましたよ。
They started accepting applications at 11 so I went just as it opened to do it.

劇場ロビーで行ったので、見届けて下さった方もいて
心強かったです!
Because it was being done in the theater lobby, there were also people there to make sure it was done properly.
That's reassuring!

緊張のせいか、上手く笑えなかった…。
Maybe because of my nervousness, I couldn't really smile...

締めは笑えるといいな。
I hope I can smile when this is all finished.

皆さんと 頑張りたい。
I want to try my best with everyone.

その願いを込めて、提出しました。
With that desire in mind, I submitted it.

はぁ、ドキドキですね。
Haa, this fills you with excitement, doesn't it.

今日は、二回公演でした!
Today we had two shows!

来てくださった皆さん、応援して下さってた皆さんありがとうございました!
Thank you to the people that came and the people that supported us!

めるうちわなどの、応援グッズも
本当にありがとうございます
I'm really thankful for
the Meru uchiwa and goods.

久しぶりの劇場公演だったけど楽しかった٩(๑>∀<๑)۶
It's been a while since the last theater show but I had fun ٩(๑>∀<๑)۶

まりり生誕祭!
まりりの、へにょへにょしてる所私大好き
声優さんの夢に向かって頑張ってる姿は凄いなって心から思ってる。
話してるとふわんと優しい温かさを感じるんだ。
Mariri's birthday show!
I love it when Mariri is vulnerable.
Seeing her pursue her dream of being a voice actress, I really thought she's amazing from the bottom of my heart.
When she was talking, I felt a fluffy, nice, warm sort of emotion.


まりりおめでとう!
Mariri, Happy Birthday!

まりりにぎゅー
Mariri hug~
