I think it might be Moe.

Nope, it was really Moe :)
I just checked her Twitter, she said she went to greet the graduating members, that she even went to eat with some of them and she posted a pic of Mii :)

Matsui Rena’s Ameblog - 12\04\2013
Today, all together, we went through the final preparations for the Gaishi Hall Concert starting tomorrow.
In the backstage, I said “I won’t lose to ChuriCamera!!” and brought out my own, special, one!
Here’s the first off-shot I took with this huge RenaCamera.
As I asked Satou Seira-chan to do a gravure pose…
…she did this one, together with an egg.
As expected from Seira.
Nobody would guess it’s right after a rehearsal, judging by her expression.
Aside from this, I could take a lot of other incredibly scoop-ish pics!!
Churichan resting her body on the bed.
It seems like she’s sleeping profoundly.
BUT!! RenaCamera was able to film it!!
To film the mysterious phenomenon that happened to Churi.
A-An out of body experience!!!
As if lol
We had fun together!
Well, tomorrow’s the big day.
I’m gonna enjoy myself.♪

[SKE48’s 4th Anniversary Special Stage] - Short Play
I was asked to translate all the MCs from the Stage, and I will (almost done) but since I made single posts for other concerts’ plays, I though about posting this alone first.
This was one of the most precious moments of the entire Stage for me. (Aside from it being really funny, the idea of mentioning the graduated members - and the way they did it - was just genious.)
I hope you’ll enjoy without getting teary eyes like I do every time X°D
* Let me know if I missed something\someone!!!
** I’d love to post a link to the video but I haven’t found any D:
Rikako: Hey, Yuukao-kun, how about going around for a bit before we go home today?
Yuuka: How about you stop calling me “Yuukao-kun” as if it was normal? It’s not like people usually call me that way…
Rikako: Te-he. But, you know, I’ll be graduating from this school soon and I got a bit sentimental as I listened to Classmate…(the play started right after Classmate’s performance)
Rikako: To be honest, I also started to think it’s too much for me to keep wearing school uniforms, you know? But on the other hand you’re fine! You don’t have to worry about such things, being a boy.
Yuuka: I’m not a boy! Well, it’s true that I’m wearing a male uniform, but…Hmm, that’s fine. Today I’ll just go home after taking a detour with you!
Yuuka: You know…I somehow like the atmosphere when we’re together like this…
Rikako: Right, every single memory is sparkling.(1* kira kira KIRARA) Recently I’ve been sorting all the memories inside my mind and, you know? The enjoyable ones are just countless (2* TSUKINAi)

Yuria: Yeah, we *MOEd like crazy, didn’t we?? (3)
Kanako: You know, I was sure that one would’ve gotten popular! I mean, everything got sold out in a bit so I couldn’t buy anything but that won’t discourage me! (4* DEMO MEGENAAAAAAI)
Sawako: Now that I think of it, just before (5* SAYUkki) they were announcing new products for sale!!
Airi: That’s exactly the kind of info we were…(6* kaYUI toko ni te ga todoku)
Everyone: …waiting for!
Rikako: The 2D Club is as hyper as always but which event are you talking about this time? (7* AIKAwarazu)
Kanako: Sorry, but we’re in a hurry, so…
Everyone: Well then… (8* Hona)

Mizuki: Pardon? Who’s supposed to be from the solo gags research club!? I’ll strike you down, girl! (10* SHIBAKItaosu)
Rikako: Scary…Still, I can smell that aura of yours today as well…You have it, right? A special gag for the 4th Anniversary!!
Mizuki: Well, can’t say I don’t have it :P
Rikako: So you have it! As expected from you :D
Mizuki: Fine, I’m gonna do it. Kuwabara Mizuki’s 4th Anniversary’s special gag!
“What if Suda Akari was a shop assistant?”
*imitating Akarin’s voice*
Welcome! Thank you! Oh, you like that one? I have one of those too, you know? Its best part is…
…my smile :D
Yuuka: Identical! She’d totally say something like this.
Yuuka: She didn’t fail, as we thought.
Rikako: Right…But, what was that weird movement you did a bit ago?
Mizuki: Hey, what’s “weird” supposed to mean!? You sure have guts, don’t you? (11* EE KOnjou)
Mizuki: No, no, listen to me! I’m not my usual self today!!
Rikako: …you’re not?
Mizuki: Guess what? Tonight…I’ll announce my new unit, called “Kuwabara Mizuki’s high level dance comrades’ Club”. Come on out, members!!
Yuuka: OMG, there would be so many things to say about that name that I can’t even…

Aki: Ohi, wait, wait!
Aki: Might it be that you forgot about us…? (14* arimaSEIKA)
Rikako: Oh, someone appeared.
Seira: The fact that you don’t even remember our names means that you wanted to pretend we don’t exist, right?(15* FUU KA?)
Yuuka: Ah! Ah…that’s the Mie Prefecture Club!!
I.Shiori: Wrong answer. We’re not a club! We are…
Everyone: Association of People from Mie Prefecture.
Yuuka: What’s that pose supposed to represent…?
Seira: A spiny lobster.
Yuuka: You sure practiced a lot for that, didn’t you? But it’s a pretty weird pose, you know? Really…
Aki: What’s with you, jerk? (16* HANDA)
Seira: See? You made our boss angry! Hurry up and apologize!!(17* ayaMARIN)
Yuuka: Why should I?
Mikoto: You’re very muras-I mean, irritating!!! (18* naka NAKA MURAsu)
Rikako: Honestly, that one was a bit too forced…fine with that?
I.Shiori: In a few words, what the boss wants to say is that…”Be sure to pay attention” until the end to the members from Mie Prefecture as well…! (19* Ominogashinaku)
Rikako: Eh? What do you mean!?
Aki: It means that fashion and tastes can change in a blink of an eye (20* tsukanoMA NO) We wanted to express how it’s important for us to treasure our hometown even though we’re so far away.
Yuuka: Well, even though it feels a bit like an excuse…People from Mie Prefecture sure say nice things!!
Rikako: Right!! You’ve never been like this until now!! My opinion of you improved a bit!!
Aki: Well, what’s important is that you got it! Now, everyone, isn’t it about time to go home? (21* kaERI KA)
I.Shiori: Ah, let’s go home…Well, since we’re going out now (22* IMA DEmasu), how about we stop and eat something our way?
Aki: Eh!? Do you know how far is it?? No way! I won’t come! Let’s go straight home!
Seira: Come one, I’ll treat to some akafuku rice cakes! (a Mie Prefecture speciality)
Aki: Hey, who do you think I am? A friend of yours!? (23* oTOMO KA?) I said I won’t go!
Mikoto: But I’ll treat you to broiled chestnuts!!
Aki: Really???? Hm, no, I won’t go anyway.

Rikako: I wonder if the Short Plays Club’s going to disappear now…
Yuuka: It won’t.
Yuuka: Until now, a lot of mates passed through here, but even though we’re separated, no matter how far we might be, there’s no way the fact that we ran together holding the same feelings will disappear. Someone’s going to receive this baton, they’ll hold it tightly and keep running forward.
Yuuka: Nakanishi’s right here…
Yuuka: Rikachan, make sure you properly run in order to guide us all, okay?
Rikako: Yeah. Nakanishi…How about we go home running together today?

(SKE48) Wakabayashi Tomoka’s Last Stage.
Airi: So, today’s Stage will be the last one for Wakabayashi Tomoka-chan, graduating this month. Tomo-nyan, even though it’s sad, congratulations on your graduation!
Tomoka: Thank you so much.
Airi: Well then, now I’d like every member to say something to Tomo-nyan. So, shall we start from Akane?
Akane: All right. Tomo-nyan, congratulations on your graduation! Even after your graduation, KII will always be a 16 people team and we’ll carry own your feelings forever, so please, even after graduating, keep supporting KII, okay?
Akane: You’ll forever be a KII mate! Congratulations!
Tomoka: Thank you!
Airi: So, here I go. Tomo-nyan!
Airi: Tomo-nyan, this is great, okay? Great!

Tomoka: Let’s do it! Yeah!
Airi: Perfect! Congratulations!
Riho: Tomo-nyan, you know…I really, really love you! And…from now on too, the Katsuo Army will be eternal!!

Riho: Tomo-nyan, thank you!!
Tomoka: Thank you!
Anna: Tomo-nyaaaaaaaaaan! Congratulatiooons…!!
Anna: You know, I love your “nya nya”!!!
*from the number of times we can hear other members saying “Anna”, I think they were pretty surprised by her crybaby reaction!*
Manatsu: Yeah, well…Tomo-nyan, you really have a kind personality and I think a lot of members got helped out by that kindness of yours. Of course, I’ve been saved too, at times. Please, from now onwards too, keep being the so kind Tomo-nyan you are. Congratulations.
Tomoka: Thank yooou!
Shiori: Hmm…yeah…you know…When I got promoted from being a kenkyuusei, it made me so happy to see you were the one rejoicing the most. I’m fine with being second to Miichan, but please love me as well!
Tomoka: I love you, Ogiso!
Shiori: Ahhh, thank you!! Congratulations!
Tomoka: Thank you!!
Seira: Well…I’m Satou Seira.
Tomoka: I know it! I know that!! I know it since forever! Since three years or something.
Seira: Oh, that’s right, isn’t it? Tomo-nyan, you were always so powerful when…Ah, no, your self introduction’s “Nyan nyan” wasn’t powerful at all, but your dancing was always so powerful and…I want you to grow without ever losing that pure heart of yours. Ah, and please feel free to call me if your body gets dull and you feel like dancing! Let’s dance together!
Tomoka: Thank you so much!!
Seira: Do your best!
Tomoko: Oh, Tomo-nyan! I never know what to say during moments like this…But…I intend to support until the end the path you chose to walk on so, please, be sure to rely on me once in a while, okay?
Tomoka: Hm, yeah, I’ll do that! I’m doing it!
Tomoko: Let’s keep in touch, okay?
Tomoka: Ah, yeah! Okay!
Tomoko: Congratulations. I love you!
Tomoka: Your eyes are scary, is there something wrong!?
Matsurina: Ah, I’m bad with this kind of things…Anyway…Invite me to your wedding, okay?
Tomoka (+ others): Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?
Matsurina: Invite me when you’re going to marry, okay?
Tomoka: Ah, well…yeah, of course…But what’s with that all of a sudden!? Ah…bye bye!
Nanako: You know, I was so glad when approached pointing out how we’re of the same age. I’m happy I was your junior, Tomo-nyan! Thank you so much!
Tomoka: Thank you!
Nanako: Please keep being a weird person forever!!
Tomoka: You take care of you, okay?
Nanako: Yeah, thank you!!
Tomoka: 5th members, I count on you!
Risako: Well…congratulations on your graduation.
Tomoka: Oh…thank you!
Risako: You know…I’m really thankful that the miracle of our meeting could happen. I love you (the “aishiteru” love you XD). I love you!
Tomoka: Thank you!
Risako: I love you, I love you!! (Gorisa, DD!!!!)
Tomoka: Thank you!
Sawako: You know…I’ll definitely never forget that we sang and danced helding our hands and with our eyes meeting during this Ramune no Nomikata Stage. Thank you very much, really.
Tomoka: Thank you! Thank you!
Miki: Tomo-nyan! You know…Somehow it still doesn’t feel real that today’s your last Stage but anyway, I’ve always loved your dancing and your singing voice, and I’ll keep loving them forever! So…next time let’s go around the 2D world together again, okay?
Tomoka: Okay! Thank you!
Miki: Ah, I’ll properly return those books to you!!
Tomoka: Be sure to return them in good conditions.
Miki: Yeah, I’ll buy new ones and give them to you!
Tomoka: Are you for real!? Thank you!
Mieko: All right…It also happened that I said something harsh to you, but that was because I know your real abilities and because I love you! Maybe right now you’re thinking that this is a peak for your life but…let me tell you that the longest part of your life still has to come, so…
Tomoka: You’re right…
Mieko: You know…all the painful things that happened when you were in SKE, will surely help you in the future, so please do your best!
Tomoka: Thank you so much!
Mieko: I love you!
Tomoka: Aren’t there too many people on this side!?!?
Ririna: Now that you’ll be gone…what should I do to kill time!?!? What!?
Tomoka: Hey…were you using me just to kill time!?
Ririna: When I’ll have free time, I’ll mail you but…you’re always so slow when it comes to reply to mails!!!! Be sure to reply quickly, damn!!!!!
Tomoka: Yeah, I’ll do that, really!
Ririna: I was joking! I love you, you idiot!!!!!
Airi: This last one was pretty cool, wasn’t it?
Airi: Well…now…we have a letter from Yamada Reika, who couldn’t appear on Stage today. So…
Akane: I’ll have the pleasure to read it.
Tomo-nyan, congratulations on your graduation.
I’m sorry I couldn’t appear together with you during your last Stage.
Tomo-nyan, I wonder if you choosing to graduate also means you have nothing to regret.
Ever since we joined SKE, we ended up crying over problems we never had the chance to face before.
Asking ourselves things like:
[What should I do to be rewarded?]
[Who should I trust?]
I think you ended up doubting your own self, even though that’s the one you should trust the most.
However, more important than that, we were able to experience things we could’ve never normally experienced and we were able to feel great joy and happiness.
During the Stage of July 16, looking at Tomo-nyan crying while saying “Rei-chan, you’re an idiot!!!”, I felt how lucky of a person I am.
Tomo-nyan, please watch me, as I’ll carry your dream that couldn’t come true while you were in SKE and fullfill it together with mine.
So, Tomo-nyan, even though I can’t fulfill my duties as a student with all might, you please enjoy your youth as much as you can. Expecially the study part!!
I’d be fine with you becoming a legend and going to Tokyo University or Harvard!
And hey, I’m not joking!!
If your grades will get worse even though you left SKE, I’ll come and knock you out! And I’ll preach you for a whole hour!!
But well, when you perform with all your power you’re coolest than any ikemen and more pretty than any beautiful girl. Tomo-nyan, be sure to believe in yourself.
People think about you, believe in you and need you much more than you think.
At least you can be sure that everyone in KII really loves you, Tomo-nyan.
Wakabayashi, Wakabi, Tomo-nyan, Chuunibyou…
I lo-lo-lo-loooooooooooove so much every of those Wakabayashi Tomoka!
You’re not kind, but you’re a good girl, aren’t you?
Ps: Hello, everyone! I wonder if the feelings I put in my letter got conveyed.
Ah, let’s cry when we feel like it!
I’m crying aloud. But then, from tomorrow onwards, I’ll smile.
The watchword is [We love KII!]. We love KII!”
Airi: So yeah, that was the letter from Yamada Reika.
Tomoka: Thank you!
Airi: Now Tomo-nyan, please say something to everyone.
Tomoka: I was just thinking about how weird the japanese language is, having just one word to convey gratitude… I don’t even really know why I’m saying this right now but I’m really, really filled with feelings of gratitude towards the members, my family, the staff and the fans.
After all, a lot of fun things happened since I joined SKE, but I also experienced many painful things.
I happened to end up not believing in members, or thinking if it was okay for me to be like this..
But at those times, I was incredibly saved by the members coming to talk with me and the fans that would say to me things like “I’ll support you. I’m always watching you” during handshake events.
Hmm…why am I so happy?
I don’t know why, but I’m really too happy right now!
From now on, I’m sure KII will be fine even without me. But…but!!! Don’t you ever forget that I was part of it! I’ll properly watch you in TV, okay!?
I want KII to go on as a new KII but, yeah…I also want you to remember the current KII!
Ahhh, I’m really lucky.
Thank you soooo much!
You know…I love everyone of you, I really do! I’m often said I’m not honest but…I love you, I really love you!
Thank you so much for everything up until now, really!
Thank you. Thank you very much!
Airi: Well, you were properly able to convey your feelings, weren’t you?
Tomoka: Were I able to speak?
Airi: It went fine!
Tomoka: Did I use proper japanese?
Airi: You did!
Tomoka: I’m happy about that!
Airi: Can you speak english?
Tomoka: No, that would be out of question.
Airi: So now…as always, shall we do our greetings?
Everyone: Thank youuuuuuuu!!
*after - on the notes of Ramune no Nomikata - the girls thank the audience and say how much they love Tomoka…*
Tomoka: Everyone, thank you so much, really. I’ll still have the chance to attend handshake events as a SKE member, so I intend to do my best. From now on too, please keep summorting…ah, that’s wrong, I mean… supporting SKE48 and Team KII!
Thank you so, sooooooooooo much for today!!!
Ps: This was the funniest last stage I’ve seen ever since I’m in the fandom. It was so sad and funny at the same time. Tomoka is such a good girl and it was touching to feel the KII bonds. Also…it’s amazing how mature Reika is.
