back number - 幸せ (Shiawase)
Fan: To start with, what will happen regarding Takamina’s curse? Lol
Takamina: Everyone (who didn’t eat coffee jelly) will turn into hair
I still have no explanation as to why I put a flower on his head
Maeda Atsuko / Yoake Made [Ballad/Piano Version]. Still one of the best live performances of Acchan. I love her voice!! and this is my favorite song between all of her solo songs! The original version isn’t a ballad though (here). I love it!!
acchans voice has such a warm quality to it and im not even exaggerating when i say i get chills up my spin whenever i hear her sing slow
It’s same for me! I remember the first time I listened to this live, I knew this song (original version) and loved it already, yet I was blown away by this live for some reasons lol it was like a new song to me. I thought about this ballad version the whole day and end up downloading the audio to listen to it all the time. Acchan singing ballads is just so beautiful >.< From the same concert I also love ‘Aishisugiru to…’ ballad version (here). and in 2013 she performed Ai with Hata Motohiro and Takamina, it was also a ballad and also a beautiful live (here).
Regarding Takamina commenting on everyone who answered “corn dog” correctly
Fan: A god (神=kami) who has the gentlemanliness to comment each and every person who answered correctly!
Takamina: Ahh, call me “Hair” (髪=kami) from this day on
Takamina: Oh man I messed up
Takamina: ↑ I meant “God” lol
Fan: Okay, from now on I’ll call you “Hair”♪( ´▽｀)
Takamina: Stop it lol
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 Kawaei,
She wants 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 my own dream that now isn’t just mine 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!
