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*
