Damn…such a great girl ._.
What I felt today。(・∀・>)
It’s Kizaki Yuria(・∀・)
Today, for the first time,
I performed as Jurina-san’s under!
It was a while until I last got this nervous,
so much that I really had a hard time ‘because of it (lol)
Before the Stage,
me and Sudachan hit
each other’s backs and…
It hurt so much that it fired me up more than ever (lol)
There’s a lot I felt
as I was standing in the center.
I’m sure I won’t be able to
convey it with words but..
…I feel as I could see
something I was never able to see before.
Now that the memory of what I felt is still fresh,
I’m going to review the performance while watching the video!
It’s still all yet to come.
I must work hard.
today, in the Sousenkyo preliminary results
I got 16th.
Really, from the bottom of my heart,
I’d like to tell you as many “Thank you”
as the votes I received are.
It’s the same “Thank you”,
both for the preliminary results
and for the official announcement on June 8.
Or better…TENKYUU!! (You know, her famous version of Japanese’s thank you, which is “SANKYUU)
I’ll be myself and work hard.

Sorry if I’m writing again after a while.
I’m all right and spending an everyday life filled with work.
Well then…You know, I’m being very interested in Sumo wrestlers lately and as I talked about it in Nippon Housou’s Mu Comi +, it spread more and more and…
They created a song called:
[Mawashi wa Emerald] *the laincloth is Emerald* (I suggest you check THIS out :P)
It was recorded last week’s Sunday, by the the MC Yoshida-san together with fans who got together voluntarily because of it!!
The part of the refrain when the song says
“Something’s different from yesterday, isn’t it?”
“Something’s different from the Nagoya Tournament, isn’t it?”
The lyrics thought by the listeners are just exellent!!!!
Moreover…it even became a CD!!!
The staff did its best in order to imitate the original cover!!
It gradually gets funnier and funnier!
Funnier and funnier!
Also, aside from [Mawashi wa Emerald] they even recorded [Chanko no Dorei] (Chanko’s slave)
Both songs’ lyrics are amazing and since it’s possible to check them on Mu Comi +’s homepage, please do!♪
Ah, today’s Sayonara Crawl’s release date!
I even slightly appear on the cover so, if you’d like, please search for me!

Welcome back :)
I’m back home, JAPAN(・∀・>)
I’m back home, JAPAN！
It’s Kizaki Yuria, coming back from Taiwan!(・∀・)
I went to do a hand-shake and autograph event
in Taiwan yesterday and the day before!(*・ω・*)
The members I went together with
were Masana-san and Anchan!(ｏ・ω・ｏ）
All members of the New Team S!
I enjoyed everything,
from Taiwan’s delicious food
to its drinks and stalls!ヽ(#`・ω・)ノ
I turned back to Japan
after learning how to write
「Shie shie dajaa!」
Well, I can’t read it though!
Aside from “shie shie!”(#・∀・)
Next time I’d like to go
and have a SKE concert there!(*・ω・*)
Lastly, here I am with a xiaolongbao!(・∀・)

I did my best at work today as well.
Right now I’m releaxing a bit.
I always get excited when I come across something new.
What I came across today, was goat’s milk.
When one says milk, cow’s one come to mind.
Still, I’ve always wanted to try goat’s milk.
When you drink it, a sweet taste completely different from that of cow’s milk starts spreading in your mouth.
Goat’s milk is delicious!!
I found it inside a store I visited by chance so I believe I won’t be able to find it again anytime soon.
If things are like this, I guess I have no other choice but to visit a farm…
However, I heard that the one that’s just been milked, not being cold yet, has a peculiar flavour.
I wonder how it is…
But I do want to do milking, create cheese and eat ice-cream!
Ah…farms are so great.
Sorry for the digression but lately, when I eat something delicious, I feel as if my brain release a signal saying “Happiness”.
And just as simple as it is, I feel happiness.
Is there a food that makes you perceive happiness?
Hint: The Frog calls me Goat :P

Sayonara Crawl is about to be released.
I shall write something abou the MV today.
The full version hasn’t been released yet but anyway, this time we did the shootings in Okinawa.
Unbelievably we were even able to shoot in the so very famous Chuukai Aquarium!!
There were lots of various fishes inside huge water tanks, like manta,s rays and even a big whale shark!!
I had only seen one of those in Oosaka’s Kaiyukan, but since this time we did the shootings in the aquarium after it got closed we all took our time to properly gaze at the shark’s tank!
I feel as if the blue of the aquarium’s water tanks has the power to bring comfort to people’s hearts.
Moreover, for this MV I shooted image scenes in pair with Renacchi!!
We face each other,
our eyes meet…
I avert my eyes.
There’s no way something like that could be used for a shooting＼(^o^)／
Even though I say so, we were actually able to do some shootings with us properly looking at each other and being close and friendly, but the scene that was chosen to be used, in the end…
…is one with me being helplessly embarrassed.
Oh dear…I feel like I really understood why fans might feel nervous when they come to hand-shake events!
It’s embarrassing when a cute girl looks at you, isn’t it???
Please be sure to also pay attention to me being crazily in love with such a Renacchi and other cute members!♪ (tln: <- MIO! XD)

I loved that movie T_T (Big Fish I mean)
It’s Mother’s day today!!
So I went to watch [Toshokan Sensou] with my mom and my grandma!
It was a while since I last went out so even though I only went to watch a movie, I was able to relax considerably.
Mom, grandma, thank you!
The action scenes in Toshokan Sensou are really cool and, even though, not being an army expert, I don’t know if they’re portrayed correctly, I surely admired the way they fought to protect their allies.
The music was wonderful as well, so much that I felt like wanting to buy the soundtrack!
Oh yeah…it is really great to watch a movie at a cinema, isn’t it?
Directed by Tim Burton.
It was my first time watching it but it’s as if a fairy-tale gets mixed with the real world and only thanks to that you’re then able to see the true reality.
It’s a story with such a mysterious atmosphere…
The scene in which the couple, fully dressed, embrace in the bathtub is so very heart-trending.
Ahhh, maybe I’ll watch one more time!!
Well then, today I want to express my gratitude not only to the mothers, but also to everyone!
Thank you for everything!!

During today’s hand-shake event I talked lots about the election poster.
There’s something I particularly like about this year’s one.
While usually we specifically go have shootings for the election posters, this year I decided to use a pic from a live.
That’s because you told me you like the way I look on stage.
This is the original photo.
Being from OkiDoki, it also has that feel of movement so it’s really one of my favorite pics.
Since I believe that, when on stage, you cast a spell on me allowing me to shine, for the slogan I chose…:
「Casting a spell…」
I guess it might also connect to the “The spell won’t be removed until midnight” in my catchphrase, don’t you agree? lol
You all told me many words of encouragement so I feel like I’ll still be able to face forward and run!
Thank you so much!

There was Riechan’s last Stage yesterday.
Her concurrent position was cancelled after not even a year passed since it was announced in the Tokyo Dome.
To be honest, having seen how she gave her all in order to fire SKE48 up, it’s really such a pity that she’s getting separated from us.
However, she’s been working no matter how much busy she was and I happened to be seriously worried that she might’ve collapsed anytime soon!
I do feel sad and lonely but I now feel like this announcement had to be made.
For the last Stage, as a surprise, we all gave her a big chocolate cake and showed her a videoclip.
We did our best to give her the present.
In the end we sang [Aozora no soba ni ite]
And the part of the lyrics that says “Goodbye is a watchword”
echoed so much inside my heart that I was really happy we could sing that song.
In the very end we took a pic together with the members who came to watch the Stage.
Everyone loves Riechan!
Thank you, Riechan.
And don’t forget; from now on too, you’ll forever be part of SKE

Suda Akari＊SKE48’s Kitasan(・⌒+)☆ミ
During today’s Team S’ Stage
we held Kitahara Rie-san’s farewell ceremony!
She kindly came in a concurrent position with AKB48,
and I’ve had the opportunity to
spend time with her both as part of
Team S and Team KII.
Even though Kitasan
was in such a onerous position - the concurrent one -
she never ever complained
and she always did her very best.
But even more than that,
she was so kind to love SKE48…
She’s such a wonderful person.★
I believe that the reason why
everyone got to like Kitasan
is all in the time we could spend together.
We stood together on the stage of the new theatre
for the shootings of Choko no Dorei’s MV…
And the time in which she’s been
shedding sweat on stage as a member of SKE48
will never disappear.
From now on I’ll keep improving on that stage
so that one day, I’ll be able to through out my chest
and meet Kitasan again… ＊
You’ll forever be a precious comrade!
Thank you for everything, Kitasan!
I’d like if SKE48 would keep being
able to create this kind of wonderful bond
also with Ooba Mina-chan,
who’s going to come in a concurrent position★

We performed a Team S’ Stage today,
and it was the last one for Kitahara-san!!!
Kitahara-san, who’s been doing her very best for SKE48’s sake
ever since her concurrent position in was decided…
Really, the more I got to know her,
the more I got to like her.
She’s kind, funny,
really a wonderful senior!
Kitahara-san, I love you!!!
Even if the concurrent position in the group ended,
Kitahara-san will be forever part of SKE48!
Thank you so much!!!

Rena(It will ne・ω・ver change)
There was an individual hand-shake event in Nagoya yesterday.
Thanks to everyone who came.
My voice got hoarse in the middle of it so sorry if it was hard to understand what I was saying.
However, I had a lot of fun during the hand-shake events and my tension rose so much that I kept being like this for 2 entire days!
Yesterday’s one was the last hand-shake event for the graduated members.
It was after more or less of a while since I last met them but they almost didn’t change at all from that last day, the dressing room kept being noisy and lively, so much that I thought that this will be something that will never change…
I perceived your warmth and kindness when I heard the members’ calls.
Thank you so much.
Well then, tomorrow we’ll perform Riechan’s last stage.
I wonder if it’s going to be a moment of change for SKE.
Let’s make tomorrow’s one a wonderful, wonderful Stage that will forever remain into Riechan’s memories!!
I might end up crying, but I want to send her off smiling.
Today’s the release date for FLASH Special.
You’ll find not yet seen shots from the Karuizawa photoshoot and off-shots from the shootings of AKB’s Sayonara Crawl.
Swimsuits, Yukata, white Metel.
You’ll find lots of me in the magazine lol
Hoping I’ll soon be able to experience other wonderful shootings!

A pic with OgiYuriMiiKana
wearing matching hair clips.(。・ω・)(・ω・。)
Today was the last hand-shake
event in Nagoya for the graduated members.
Did you noticed that me and Ogichan
exchanged our Choko no Dorei hair ornaments?lol
OgiYuri, after a long time(´人・ω・。)
today, on our way home on the bus,
we decided to listen to OgiYuri’s beloved song,
since it was, after all, the last time…
So inside the quiet bus,
we shared the earphones
and listened to
Nishino Kana-san’s “Best Friend”!
The lyrics felt so connected to the 3 years
and a half we spent together that
the both of us ended up crying (lol)
I think it’s really amazing
for a song like this,
filled with our memories,
It’s really amazing, isn’t it?
From the bottom of my heart I can say it:
I’m so happy I met her.
I feel so much happy that I met her
that I could even forget
all the feelings of sadness.
Thank you so mcuh.
The pic is a favorite of mine,
that was taken by Churi-san!
And to everyone who, until the very end,
honestly supported the graduated members:
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Congratulations on your graduation

Rena(So ma・ω・ny things)
Today we had a hand-shake event in Nagoya’s Port Messe Nagoya!
I thought it had passed a while since I last wore this outfit but I actually wore it the other day in the Budoukan lol
These past few days were really lively so it felt like a lot passed already.
Anyway today a lot - really a lot - of people came to see me!!
So much that when I first reached my lane I got startled!!!
Also since it was during the Golden week long holiday, a lot of parents with children could come, not to mention people coming from far away!
Everyone, thank you so much!
I’m glad to know so many people wants to meet me.
A lot of fans of members of the new Team E came to me saying “We count on you!” or “Let’s do our best!”
That made me really happy!
I’d like to work hard in order to receive support not only as a single member but also as a team, at the same time.
Still, the most important thing is to make you smile.
Even just seeing the people who come shaking my hand and talk to me smiling after that is enough to make me happy.
So tomorrow as well I’ll definitely go enjoy myself!
Now going a bit back in time with another topic…
Let’s talk about yesterday’s Seifuku no me Stage in TDC Hall!
Thanks to everyone who came!
It was the first and last touring Stage with these members.
It was also the first and left Tokyo Stage with us for Riechan.
She was talking about how nervous she was to have the people from Tokyo to watch SKE’s Stage.
I had so so much fun during the Stage and as I noticed how fun I was having, every time my eyes would meet some other members’ I couldn’t avoid thinking “I guess the times it’s going to happen again could be counted…” and I suddenly got sad…so at the end of the Stage I was sobbing a bit…
Probably it’s because, I passed from having my feelings focused on E to spend these days completely thinking about S…so before I could realize it, I found myself being just as sad as the time I was separated from them…so once again I could feel how much I love Team S.
This Stage is just like a precious friend for me, so I’ll treasure it until the very end.

Well, I guess it had to be like this, now that KanaKana left XD
During today’s Seifuku no Me Stage,
I performed Ookami to Pride with Egochan!ヽ(#`・ω・)ノ
It’s Kizaki Yuria,
who thinks that Egochan is so cute it hurts(´pωq`)
She’s genuinely cute!
Even when just drinking juice
she’s so cute it’s unfair! (lol)
And it’s unbelievable how she looks cute
even when holding the strawberries we got as refreshments.(´-ω-｀)
Ahhh, I ended up
being completely into Egochan (lol)

I’m honestly amazed by this girl…
Churi＝(((（O゜◇゜）o｛*The ground stregthens thanks to the rain.
Among all those
we received the very last one.
I didn’t think I would’ve had to
cry again for the surprise announced in the end…
I believe that,
ever since the Gaishi Hall concert
Kitahara-san has been
busier than anybody else.
She was the one who had to
memorize the biggest number
of songs and choreographies,
not to mention her positions.
After the sudden
she became a KII member and
memorized even more
new songs for us.
During the rehearsal for the Budoukan concert,
I had some time to talk with Takamina-san.
As I asked her for
advice about the future
『Things started to go well with Kitahara（san), uh?
She’s such a good girl
and she just recently told me that
she’s thinking a lot about SKE,
about KII and even about Churi』
Here’s what she told me.
I was so happy.
Then we ended up our
solo concert in the Budoukan
without any problem
and I was feeling like everything
had just started!
getting separated from her feels tremendously sad.
And Kitahara-san herself
was so kind to cry lots because of this.
『I was looking forward to what was to come next!』
…that’s what she told me.
Everyone in SKE
feels very lonely.
And I thought so much:
『Why? Why? Why!?』
being sad all the time
would only lead everyone else
I thought we must
feel like working hard and give our all,
just as much as Kitahara-san
felt honestly sad and started crying
when told she had to leave SKE.
I’m sure she had
to face lots of difficulties.
Still, I was so happy to
dancing so enjoyably to
She made me feel
so much like
『I must work hard!!!!』
I wanted us to
improve our characters
and to spend more time
as comrades in the
but hey, it’s not like we won’t have
the chance to stand together on stage never again…
I’m sure that
might make all that become true,
So, right now,
I just want to tell her a lot of
“Thank you for what you’ve done!”
same team, even if just for a bit.
We experienced so
much together and
I came to really, really love her!!!
I’m glad we became so close that,
in the end, we embraced each
other and cried out of sadness.
I hope one day
we’ll surely stand
on the stage together once again!!!
*with all the New Team KII members
about Anna, who was having a concurrent position in Team B.
worked so very hard as well.
Team KII Stage
Team B Stage
Team KII Stage.
I watched the whole time
Anna, who kept standing
without giving in to such
a hard schedul.
She even went around
the 47 Divisions as an
and had so many new things to memorize!
she kept doing her best
coming and going
from Nagoya to Tokyo,
without a break.
it often happened
for us all to worry about
But she kept
After her concurrent position was suddenly cancelled,
Anna got really
That’s just how much
she gave her all for Team B.
I want her to teach us what she’s learned
so that we’ll make use of it for SKE’s future.
please clap your hands for Anna.
I’d like to
go out again with
Anna, thank you so, so much
for your hard work. You did great.
As for Ooba Mina-chan,
who’ll now become a KII comrade
in concurrent position,
I’m sure there’s still lots she doesn’t know,
but from now on, as we’ll learn about each other,
I’d be happy if she’ll grow
to love SKE48 and Team KII.
A lot happened, but in the end
the only thing we can do
is to face forward and walk on.
Even though my heart still isn’t ready,
my mind properly understands it.
So everything’s fine.
『Do your best as a leader, okay?』
I’m often told things like that, but…
It’s not about that.
Before being a leader,
I’m part of SKE,
so I want to work hard as a member.
For the sake of SKE’s future
I can’t just stop here.
I’ll rest a bit more
and then I’ll start
to properly walk again(^-^)
come walking with me, okay?(^-^)
That’s all for today.
Thanks for having read such a long post.
It’s possible that my feelings
will be different from yours,
I’ll be happy if, for now,
you’d just accept
my honest feelings.
I hope it’ll be sunny tomorrow.
