・ From Yuria’s Twitter - 21\09\2014 ・
The thing for itself is no news (as the senbatsu was announced directly on the blog of Yoshida Asako - a researchered of Japanese cooking the girls worked with for this occasion - in the beginning of August), but…the project was finally launched today!
I’m talking about the Osechi x AKB48 Collaboration!
The Osechi senbatsu - formed by Watanabe Mayu, Kashiwagi Yuki, Takahashi Minami, Kizaki Yuria, Katou Rena, Mutou Tomu, Oowada Nana and Mukaichi Mion - presented today the first types of Osechi (a kind of food prepared for the New Year’s holidays) made by them, the “AkeOme Osechi” (AkeOme being the abbreviation for the expression meaning “Happy New Year”) and the “KotoYoro Osechi” (KotoYoro being the abbreviation for the common expression meaning “Let’s get along this year as well”.)
The Osechi senbatsu members will study the origins, the ways of cooking and the flavoring of Osechi together with the above mentioned Yoshida Ayaka.
Kawaei Rina posted on 755 that she’s going to stop doing handshakes and some people have commented asking her to continue. This is Takamina’s response to the situation:
I saw Kawaei’s post.
It’s not everyone but there are some inconsiderate comments.
You know that thing that happened…
It was a really serious thing.
Handshakes. Handshakes. Handshakes.
It’s an important place.
So I’m glad to be able to continue them and to see everyone again.
You know, for myself,
I want to meet everyone
To shake hands with you, to talk to you,
To know one another
I think we go past that fence of being fans and idols.
Like friends or family…
For example, when I get chosen to become a regular on a show and when my second single was decided, it made everyone happy right? As if it were your own happiness.
That makes me happy.
I like the feeling of us working as a team
For our own dream that isn’t just our ours alone.
We have to get past it.
At times of trauma
When it’s hopeless
When we don’t know what to do
How would each of you want to reach out to those around you?
Is it through words of encouragement?
Is it by asking “When will you start handshakes again?”
Is it by waiting?
She’s on 755 in her own way
I think she wanted to be connected to everyone
When handshakes stopped,
I was really anxious…
I wondered if we don’t have handshakes,
Would the number of people supporting us decrease?
I know that waiting is difficult
Not being able to see each other is painful
But if you’re a real fan
Give her time!
If Kawaei starts handshakes again…
Everyone, please take care of her!
Sighs… there will always be stupid and inconsiderate people :v
