6/6 Yukirin at 2015 AKB48 Sousenkyo News Roundup

The 7th Annual AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo for the 41st Single took place at Fukuoka Yahoo Dome on June 6th.

See previous blog post about the concert that took place prior to the results: http://kashiwagiyukirin.com/2015/06/06/3587/

Just like the last few years, Sousenkyo was MC by Tokumitsu Kazuo.

Yukirin ranked 2nd with a final vote of 167,183!!!

This is an increase of 62,819 votes from last year!  Sadly, she was behind Sasshi who won 1st with 194,049 votes, a margin of 26,866 votes.

 

English Translation of Yukirin’s Speech:
(Please note, I tried my best to interpret her speech, I’m not good with speeches because it’s all very long run on sentences that may not necessarily all make sense together.)

To everyone that supported me and voted, truly, thank you very much!!

It’s my highest ranking ever! Thank you. Eh, that’s right. At the preliminary results for this year’s Sousenkyo, I was at 2nd place. I have spoken my mind and waiting for today has been the scariest of all Sousenkyo, but no matter how nervous I have been or the various emotions that I have felt coming into today, to stand on this stage in my hometown area in Kyushu with a smile, I truly feel that it’s due to the support of everyone.

That’s right…Umm…. This year is the first time I declared that “I wanted to win first place at Sousenkyo”. I have felt uneasy, wondering if it was ok to declare it. It’s unfortunate that I am unable to reach that dream but to get 2nd place…up until now I have relied on other members. Also, I have had thoughts like “I don’t want to hurt others” and “I don’t want to cause any strife”, but from now on I won’t back away from these various things anymore. General Manager Takamina-san will be graduating, Takamina-san’s presence has been so big for us that I feel a bit uneasy. But for the next general manager, Yokoyama Yui-chan, to not overburden her, I will work hard so that each and every member in AKB Group will shoulder that burden and I want AKB Group to continue to aim higher for bigger things.

I spent one year as concurrent member with NMB48. The members as well as the fans have been very kind, I have really learned a lot. In the fall, I will become a concurrent member with AKB48 Group’s new group, NGT48. For the sake of growing AKB group, I want to support NGT with this 2nd Place that I have received today so that they will become successful too. I am burning with this sense of duty.
(Crowd yells “do your best”) Thank you. Of course, for AKB48 as well as AKB Group too.

Since I have declared that I want AKB Group to grow bigger and bigger, I will also closely support the member that will be called next. So from now, please continue to support us. Thank you very much!

Tokumitsu-san: “Yukirin, a few words. Are you content?”
Yukirin: “I’m content. Thank you so much!!”

Yukirin is talking about making AKB Group more popular. It’s amazing to see how much Yukirin has matured and wanting to take that leadership role and being that front member.

Thank you!

I have felt everyone’s affection.
Therefore, while I wasn’t able to get 1st, I totally don’t feel any regret.

I will definitely continue to cherish everyone.
Truly thank you very much

I have felt the power from Yukirin’s seriousness of wanting to get 1st Place!! (^ν^)
I also like this stronger Yukirin (^ν^)

 

Haachan also replied to Yukirin with a simple “Yukirin, congrats”

 

Harugon replied with

Yukirin is such a beautiful woman that you can’t tell that you’re same age as me…From now on, put more people into a trance ok?❤
Somehow, when I heard 2nd Place…It’s cause I also got 2nd Place at JKT’s Sousenkyo… (*^^*)

 

And of course, as it is customary, Yukirin Mama’s watermelon message!

English Translation

1:14 AM – 7 Jun 2015
Every year after Sousenkyo when I return home, my mother would prepare for me my favourite watermelon.

Since this year is in Fukuoka…it was sent via mail instead.
My mother also congratulated me so I’m really happy

[Watermelon message: “Congratulations on 2nd Place ^ ^, Otsukaresama-rin” ]

 

Yukirin was also visited by a few Watanabe Ent. comedian groups after the Sousenkyo.

During the Event and After, Ayasa, the violinist at all three Yukirin’s Solo Live tweeted about the event. She followed the whole thing it seems.

I wanted to see Yukirin at Center(´・_・`)✨

Yukirin is 2nd Place Amazing She is the Perfect Idol (°_°)♡
