I’ve been writing about Sayanee too much. Let’s get some Nana in there. I don’t have much confidence in this translation, hopefully I didn’t mess anything up.
-Do you remember the opening day for your stage performance?
I do. I had been crying since rehearsal. Whenever I hear “Dareka no tame ni” I start to cry. I felt that, for that day, I was able to happily and safely stand on stage. But I don’t remember what I talked about during the MC session. At that time I really wanted to hear everyone’s voices. I wanted to be praised so I went out there with all my might. I didn’t even think at all about anything other than what was going on now. My mind could only think about the success of the opening night of the theater. Personally, through my expressions I was able to receive everyone’s feelings. I couldn’t see the faces from afar, so I tried to put a lot of care into creating a good atmosphere so that I could receive positive criticism from everyone. I had Shinoda Mariko’s position for “Koike,” but they said that it showed good qualities of Nana being Nana, so I remember being happy.
-What do you think of your 2nd stage, Seishun girls?
I thought I was gonna die. In terms of scheduling, I had no time at all. I had to shoot TV shows on location and I couldn’t remember the choreography. With those conditions, I couldn’t even work the dress rehearsal. I only knew how to stand in the right place for the opening performance. I remember people being yelled at and crying during the lessons. Somehow, I was able to do the opening night, but that was it. Now, I consider how to use my time and decide how to proceed from there.
-In summer, the 2nd gen entered.
I knew that Akimoto-sensei had high praise for Jou, so we were nervous about what would happen to us and where we would stand. I had no confidence, so I was stressed. But, when they entered I thought they were cute so I wanted to help them (lol).
-Since then, the members have become more disciplined.
When in a situation we don’t understand, we’re literally shocked. I’m the oldest member so I talk with Sayanee and the staff. That’s how we learn about the various situations. At any rate, we can’t help but wait for the days we do things together. That’s how we thing. As expected, being the best member is really something!
Hm, never knew about how busy she was for 2nd stage. I quite liked her Kinjirareta Futari. She got both ballads in the two Team N stages so far and I like her unique voice. I wish she got the solo for the 4th NMB single instead of Milky.
