Blog update: “We’ve finally arrived at Nippon Budoukan!!(/_ ・、)”
With all of the Budoukan performances finished for now, Maimi looks back at the performances she always dreamed of in her September 11th update “We’ve finally arrived at Nippon Budoukan!!(/_ ・、)“. Full translation below.
When I think about yesterday and the day before,
it feels like a dream
They were 2 days full of happiness
℃-ute’s first performance at Nippon Budoukan was announced April 3rd.
Five months ago we couldn’t believe that we’d be standing on stage at Budoukan, and it ne~ver felt like it was really going to happen.
Now those performances at Budoukan are a thing of the past…
It’s a strange feeling.
The performance we a~lways dreamed of.
Many people watch over us
I was moved looking at the view from the stage and thinking “There’s this many people in team ℃-ute…°・(ノД`)・°・”,
and there’s even more and more if I include the people who couldn’t come to Budoukan…
Because of the support of people like them, we were able to finally reach Budoukan in our 12th year…
The view from the stage was the best
The variety of glowsticks were really beautiful…
The kind feelings from everyone were really warm…
Everyone’s cheers were reassuring…
Everyone showed ℃-ute that wonderful view
Thank you so very much.
My heart is full of emotions and I can’t sort my feelings, so I don’t know what I should write…
This is what happens when you’re really happy, isn’t it(^^;)lol
As an unbelievable surprise,
Moritaka Chisato-san appeared
I was really surprised
She came running for ℃-ute’s sake!!
I never thought the day would come when we could stand on stage and sing together…
Or that I’d be able to hear Moritaka-san singing live at a ℃-ute concert…
Nervous, I thought “Whoa This is an amazing experience right now“
Moritaka-san, thank you so very much
Even while standing on stage, it felt like a dream and I still couldn’t believe it was real,
but after the concert was over, I was suddenly filled with a sense of accomplishment°・(ノД`)・°・
The joy of achieving something after 11 years was really big
There were a lot of things I felt that I only felt because it took so long
Seeing the staff’s faces afterwards, I felt so relieved I couldn’t stop crying…
I was overwhelmed with gratitude for them struggling alongside us even when things didn’t go well.
As expected, giving up on something is no good
Every member has experienced times when things were bad,
but no one lost
Because they didn’t lose, I was able to see that view with all of them
I’m grateful to all of the members
I feel like our bonds became even stronger after the announcement of our Budoukan performances
We talked about it a lot
Yeah They’re really heartening companions
And then, we also received support and blessings from the former members
Even after parting with ℃-ute,
their feelings have always been near us,
and they supported us
They were really delighted that this day arrived
That makes me really, really happy…
For us, those girls’ existences are really important
Though we walk different paths now, the days we spent together as ℃-ute will never fade,
and I want all of us to continue to do our best
And then, and then,
our families, our relatives, our friends, our teachers, our former managers, our seniors… A lot of people came to see the moment ℃-ute’s dream came true.
We caused them a lot of trouble over the years, but everyone was warm…
While reading the many e-mails I received, I thought
“I’m surrounded by really wonderful people
How fortunate I am“, and I felt moved again
Rereading this blog just now,
the thing I’m feeling the most is gratitude to every person concerned with me…
Thanks to e~veryone,
I am the person I am now
I want to respond in kind to everyone’s support,
and continue to share happiness with everyone from now on too
Let’s become happy together
I love everyone
I love you
The Budoukan performances are over, and the autumn tour has started
So that we can show everyone how we’ve grown even more, ℃-ute will do our best while chasing our next dream
Everyone, please come with ℃-ute
