It’s over. I just finished it.
I feel all warm and fuzzy and I probably have teary eyes and a smile on my face.
I’ve never ever seen a drama (or a tv series, or an anime series or whatever) in which I basically love every single character T_T
No, seriously, it’s no surprise Amachan got so popular!
I’d be surprised for someone not to like it.
Ps on a very personal note: it was probably the very first time in which, even though I did have a ship, I didn’t dislike another one involving a character of mine!
REALLY, I couln’t help but finding sweet or funny some Aki\Taneuchi scenes!!!!! And believe me, it’s something rare if not unique for me considering I both like Aki (hence I couldn’t like her with someone I disliked, which means I don’t dislike Taneuchi) and I ship Aki\Yui! (Ah, and aside from other many Aki\Yui shippers I also know there are Aki\Hiroshi shippers, so well ahah let’s hold tight to our ships, guys XD)
Okay, now I guess I won’t bother you anymore with random Amachan things…
But I’ll probably write or reblog pics of Rena and Ai since I decided to follow their careers U.U
Ah, and now my second favorite idol group is Shiosai no Memories of course!!!!

Matsui Rena’s Official Blog - 12\12\2013
For some reason reading this blog I got reminded about the comment about Koko de Ippatsu she made during Kaotan’s Yokohama Arena’s making of ! (maybe it’s because the part about doing any thing one can do links to those lyrics in my mind).
Anyway it’s so nice to know that she’s experiencing something great lately!
A lot of happy things happened today!
I was even able to hear something wonderful and I thought I should work harder and harder!
Still, without feeling contented with this, I feel like I shall do anything is in my power to do, just every thing I can do!
And I will also do my best in order to convey to the other members as well how every single thing is precious!
Now, before getting busy, is time to refresh!

Suda Akari’s Official Blog - 12\12\2013
I love when they talk about juniors!!!!!!!
I tried to write down some very impactful events
To everyone working or studying…great job!!!♪
As I went to the lesson room,
I found the research students all gathered together
doing independent practice!
What I’m going to write has nothing to do with the practice, but anyway…
The way Gotou Mayuko-chan was eating the egg from the oden bought in the convenience store for dinner (I guess) was…tremendously awkward (lol)
And, just like you can see in the pic,
Sakipon started meddling with me like crazy!
These are 2 very impactful events that happened today lol
let’s keep fighting. ♪

[Birthday Letter] - Matsui Jurina’s Letter for Sakai Mei’s Birthday (December 12 2013)
It’s such a childish but also very cute and sweet letter :)
I love MeiMei who’s always cute and sometimes cool!
I still remember how, when you had just joined SKE48, you were feeling worried about your performance skills.
When you came to me for advices, my impression was that of a reserved girl who was still unable to break her own shell.
However, before I knew it, I happened to see a shining MeiMei dancing in concerts’ rehearsals, and I got really relieved.
Right now, accoding to Kanon, you’re becoming handsome, aren’t you? lol
Still, I prefer the super cute MeiMei who, all embarrassed looking at me, would say: “I love you, Jurina-san!”
But try to contain yourself a bit, because during hand-shake events, MeiMei fans come to me saying: “MeiMei keeps talking about how she loves Jurina-san!!”, so I guess there also are quite jealous people!!
I love it how you say it to me directly!
Well, I also like it when you’re not really able to say it because you feel embarrassed. In any case…you’re cute and I like you!
And I’m also happy to be able, like this, to write a letter to you for your Birthday Celebration.
Thanks to the fans who kindly chose me.
I’d be gald if MeiMei would be happy about this too.
Ah, one more thing!
My feelings for MeiMei are not just for business!!
If I’m told that, I end up thinking :”So I can’t say I like her…!?” and I hate it so please don’t say this kind of malicious things (heart)
However, seeing how you often write on surveys or such that you like Kanon…I get quite jealous… *cries*
Juritan ends up thinking “Even though she said she liked me so much…Maybe she changed her mind…” and it feels sad nyan!
I won’t forgive any cheating!!!!
Let’s go out on a date again, okay?
It’s a public arrangement now!
Well then, really congratulations!
And…please keep being the super cute MeiMei, okay?
By the handsome Jurina (Heart)”

[Birthday Letters] - Birthday Letters for Saki, Azuki and Reona (November 27 2013)
I postponed the translations of these letters for too long, sorry.
I want to properly translate all the Birthday letters, so I shouldn’t postpone anymore <_<
I think that right now the letters from the 6th gen’s members’ parents can be particularly interesting, so…have a read if you want!
Letter for Takeuchi Saki’s Birthday, by her mom.
Thanks to the people of the Birthday committee, to the staff and to all the members for creating such a wonderful Birthday Celebration for my daughter!
Isn’t this great, Saki?
One of your many dreams, the one about having your Birthday Celebration held, became true!
I would’ve never imagined for you to turn 14 in this way.
Happy 14th birthday!
My tendence to worry gets even more intense when it’s about my daughter, not to mention how I easily start to cry…Which is why, even though it was in its way something happy, after you passed SKE’s audition I spend days filled with worry and uneasiness.
Before having the chance to join SKE, as part of the Cheer Dragons Kids you would go to lessons in the weekdays and then I’d take you to Nagoya in the weekends with my car, or we’d go together by train on high speed bus. I went with you so many times I could get the price for perfect attendance!!
At that time you said: “I can’t go alone!!”, so, worried as I was, I’d of course take you to the lessons and then, while you were practicing, I’d always aimlessly go around Nagoya…
To think that the one uneasy must’ve been you, the one having it hard mustìve been you, with your daily life suddenly changing completey…
First of all, even though you never went on a train alone, now, even if I can’t go you get like “Don’t worry, everything will be okay one way or another: Here I go!” and got able to do it…
No matter how your sleeping hours decreased or how you couldn’t meet your friends much anymore, you worked hard and would say things like: “It’s fun to dance! I love lessons! Everyone’s such a good person!” without ever complaining and receiving an amazing stimulus from the other members.
When you gave up on many things, thinking “I want to do it but I’m sure I won’t be able to do it…”, your Cheer Deagons’ Teacher taught you to get sprited up and that you should challenge yourself in all the things you feel like doing, because “Nothing will happen if you don’t start something! Take your cahances!”
“It’s sad that you won’t be my pupil anymore but I’m cheering on you, okay? You can do it!”…and so, as you put an end to the Cheer Dragons experience you had been continuing for years, your teacher kindly pushed your back.
Then you got focused on the lessons as a 6th generation candidate, you safely passed the selection and became a research student.
Saki, who up until not much before used to carry a pink backpack, became a 1st year middle schooler, turned from Cheer Dragons Kids to Girls, was fascinated by SKE’s dance, took the audition, became a research student on her 2nd year of middle school, found what she likes in this very year and is now walking on that path.
All this would’ve been out of the questions in my middle school years.
It’s amazing, really. You grew up in so many different ways!
Having the chance to go through so many experiences such concerts, Stages, hand-shake events, shooting and recording, I’m sure you’re understanding by just how many people you’re being supported. You must never forget to be grateful!
The fan letters, the presents, every word you’re told are filled with many people’s feelings, so accept them and properly take care of them feeling grateful. You were able to perceive how [No matter where you are, there’s always someone looking at you].
When your grandma, who used to tell me “Sakichan is a grandchild I’m proud of, thank you for giving birth to her” and was always doting on you passed away and you were forced to separate with her sooner than expected, even though you were definitely sad, you tried to support your depressed mama, went to cry alone in the toilet in order to be considerate towards me, told me I shouldn’t endure it and that it was fine to cry…I was able to realize how much of a reliable daughter you are.
Before I could even notice it, I was being the one supported by you…
It’s a pity that she isn’t able to see this grown up Saki, member of SEK48, but I’m sure your grandma got to be your n°1 fan.
Saki, you even have people supporting you from heaven!!
Do your best, Saki!!
Your family will always support you, okay!?
Don’t be concerned about me thinking I’ll be worrying, and go on without forcing yourself and without any impatience.
You have many dreams, from small ones to huge ones, but I hope you’ll be able to catch them all, one at a time…
And be sure to treasure the members destiny allowed you to meet and that became your comrades.
Comrades are really something irreplaceable!
Please never ever forget the gratitude towards the fans supporting you, the staff, the school’s teachers, your friends and everyone else!
Once again, happy 14th birthday!
I hope you’ll spend a wonderful year!
Letter for Yano Azuki's Birthday, by her mom.
"Aachan, Happy Birthday!
As it felt like just a few years ago you were in kindergarten now you’re already 17, and I realize how you really grew up in the blink of an eye…
Every time I write a letter, like I am now, I remember about this…
You being a little baby, the smell of milk, your tiny sleeper’s breath, your small hands and feet, your soft bottom.
Without causing me any hardship, you were a baby who’d drink a lot of milk and sleep just as much.
I remember thinking: “If only she could stay a baby forever…”
As I was unable to keep my eyes off of you, you turned 2, and then 3, and your hair used to be amazingly thin and really just a few.
They really wouldn’t grow up, so you kept being mistaken for a boy, didn’t you?
That time you put an hairpin in the outlet making it sparkle…
That time we panicked when you ended up eating your father’s tobacco…
That time you bit a baloon, it cut open and you cried aloud for the shock hearing that big noise…
So many other things happened…
Now they’re all funny stories by every single day something new would happen!!
You already were reliable when in kindergarten you would prepare your own napkin every day. And when you’d come home from the park you’d bring a lot of friends home every time.
You did your best even with the harmonica and the shrine drums you were so poor at, didn’t you?
And the image of you wearing your cute uniform, or the yukata during the Summer Festival still clearly comes to mind…
During your grade school years, you became the relay member in the sports festival, your book report was shown in the works exhibition and you received a lot of prizes! You were a kid I’ve always been proud of.
You wouldn’t only take care of your things but you would also help me every day, preparing the napkins, lunch, doing the ironing, washing the shoes!
When you had time you’d even prepare chiffon or cheese cakes.
Be sure to prepare some delicious sweets again, okay?
And then now…
Being busy with school and SKE48’s work, what I’m looking forward the most is to go shopping and eating with you when you have a day off!
When I come to pick you up and you start talking and talking in a huge voice I get quite startled but I’m also happy. Thank you…
The selection of your club activities, the selection of your school, that of joining SKE48…
You’re going to find many other crossroads ahead of you, you might end up standing still, worrying, thinking, and then you’ll make your choices.
Like I’ve always been, I’ll be by your side no matter the path you choose.
I’m in your cheering party!
Remember that there’s nothing to be taken as for granted.
Please work hard thinking about others and without forgetting the gratitude.
Then turn that gratitude into energy and smiles and make a lot of people happy!
To my beloved Aachan,
Letter for Ida Reona's Birthday, by her mom.
"Reona, Happy 15th Birthday!
What kind of scenery is the one you’re looking at right now?
I bet a wonderful scenery you’ve never seen before is now spreading before you…
Last year’s birthday happened before the selection so you were spending those days doing lessons.
Pretty much every day you’d practice in your room, and you used to be so noisy while checking the steps that I remember how seriously I thought: “What if one of this days the ceiling will come off and Reona will fall down…!?”
Even before standing in the theater stage, you had the chance to appear in Gaishi Hall and then, with the Budoukan concert and the research student’s concert, being in such a blessed enviroment, the past one has been a year filled with first experiences.
Seeing how you’re doing your best to make this coexist with the sudies, I got relieved, realizing how you must really like the activities in SKE.
Well, I pretend not to see your tests’ grades, though…
Remember when, in summer, you were told about appearing in K2 Stage as an under?
You got worried, thinking “What should I do!?”
It’s not like I couldn’t understand that uneasiness.
After all, even though you had taken part in S and E’s lessons, at the time you had never been in a K2 lesson yet! Not to mention how there was the Dome Tour and Stages every day, so I’m sure you felt anxious, wondering if you could’ve been able to do it all…
At that time I ended up telling you some pretty harsh things, such as: “How much of a spoiled girl are you, saying you can’t do something without even trying!?”, or “You’re smashing your chances down yourself!”…
Still, I’ve been observing for more than 14 years and I pushed your back because I believed you could do it.
Your seniors helped you out with the practice, the 6th gen comrades taught you many things, the fans encouraged you during hand-shake events, saying “Do your best for your first under!!”, the staff supported you and so…you were able to succesfully go through your first experience as an under.
That very day, the Reona I saw on DMM was shining, changing the support received until then, with a smile, into an intense performance!
I couldn’t stop crying…
You really worked hard. Let’s be grateful towards everyone!
Reona who, since she was 3, up until her 2nd year of middle school, would wear an outfit, dance and sing every New Year’s eve in front of all the relatives, and sometimes perform a comedy sketch together with me!
You’ve liked dancing and singing ever since you were a kid, but I never thought you’d become an idol so, when I knew, I even ended up thinking things like: “Maybe she would’ve become popular if only I made her cuter…”, “If I grew her to have a strong chara maybe she would’ve become a funny and interesting idol…”, but you took yourself a position as a 6th generation member by being exactly the way your are, so I want you to be confident!
But you can’t keep staying like this! Please think, worry and work hard a lot and then find your own position in SKE48, okay?
Your family will support you as you walk towards your dreams!
But don’t get me wrong…Of course I will keep telling you a lot of harsh things!
Thanks to the members of the committee who organized this wonderful Birthday Celebration today!
Since you created a chance for me to write a congratulating letter, I was able to look back at my feelings since my daughter was born until now. Thank you.
People of the staff always supporting her, members, 6th gen’s girls, fans…please keep watching over this still incomplete Ida Reona from now on too!

Help!! I’m loving Amachan too much!
I don’t want it to end but I’m almost at the end!
I love every character, I’ve laughed like crazy

And I fell in love with both Nounen Rena and her character!
And I even re-fell for Ai thanks to her yankee version!
