Thank you very much for opening this blog!
I’m Sakurazaka46’s Onuma Akiho
from Shizuoka 🐟🌻
🌸BACKS LIVE 🌸
To those of you who attended in the venue,
To those of you who cheered through streaming
Truly, thank you very much!!
The passion of the all the members
and Buddies united into one
I think that it has become a fiery hot concert!
When I heard about that the second BACKS LIVE will be held,
I thought that
I must definitely surpass the last one
I was also anxious
whether I could surpass that amount of passion or not.
In order to become stronger
and show the Buddies how much I have grown
I made up my mind,
and faced myself every day, trying to give my best.
As I went through the tough days with the members, I came to love and cherish them greatly even more.
I want to be someone
who can support the center from behind.
I came to think that I want to be
someone who can convey what the center wants to convey
together with her.
When I became very scared of the one-time only performance,
the members and managers
always encouraged me by saying “You can do it”
and I was saved many times.
And at every time,
I remembered the fans,
the words they said to me in meguri,
the words the wrote to me in letters,
I was never alone.
I am extremely grateful.
The “Nagaredama” that I centered
it was truly scary
But in order to surpass my previous BAN self,
I had to push myself with this song with strong lyrics, and gathered my courage.
During the rehearsal period,
I thought a lot about the feelings of the Nagaredama protagonist,
and snuggle close to them
I didn’t want to think about the choreography at all during the song, so I threw myself at it and let it soak into my body
and tried to concentrate on my emotions.
Through this song,
Because the heart of a human, me included, are fragile,
from one’s environment, betrayal, or words that are spoken lightly
it can be frighten, hurt, lose one’s identity,
That’s why we have to have a feeling love for everyone,
the responsibility to the words we speak.
Because there is no one in this world
who is fine with being hurt
that the depth of the love is different from each person
But, if everyone has even the littlest amount of love
Then we all could live as ourselves.
I hope that you never forget
how easy it is to drive another crazy
I hope that the world will be kinder than it is now.
Those are the feelings that I put in my performance.
I’m sorry if it came across
like a high‐sounding talk.
But I put on these feelings from the protagonist into this song, and I wanted to convey it.
I had a lot of things that I regret, lots of things to reflect on
and I was feeling down for a few days,
But I switched up my mind,
and thought, “That’s your room for growth!”
Being able to win against myself,
Being able to put out everything that I had at the moment,
And more than anything, to have fun,
I’d like to give myself her due.
Buddies, thank you very much
for always being the reason we could do our best!
From now on, while facing myself
I’d like to grow a lot together
with the Buddies!
I will devote myself and do my best for Sakurazaka46.
I look forward to your continued support ☺︎
The words Minami-san sent to the group
a day before the concert,
contained all of Minami-san’s kindness and strength
that I was struck by her words
I felt so happy to be her junior.
I thought that I want to follow her with all I can!
Thank you as always☺︎
Thank you very much for reading until the end!
I will never forget
the view from Tokyo Garden Theater’s stage.
You were caught in a 34cm swamp
