AKB48 and NMB48 members appeared during the opening of “Documentary of AKB48, the time has come” on the 12th (July) at Osaka’s Minami Theater.
In the waiting room, AKB48 members Owada Nana and Takahashi Juri were enjoying Osaka with takoyaki from Wanaka, a famous takoyaki restaurant. This being the first time she’s had the “salty” variety of takoyaki, Owada smiles and remarks, “This is the first time I’ve had it. It was really delicious”.
On the other hand, Takahashi said with a smug face, “Right until we were about to go out, I had a piece of aonori stuck on my finger nail. This happens a lot in Osaka, doesn’t it?” But, during the event, Kishino Rika, a true Kansai native, replies back, “No, that doesn’t happen in Osaka. It only happens to you Juri-chan”.
Kashiwagi Yuki has held a concurrent position in NMB and AKB since April of this year. It looks as if she’s gotten used to things, but Muro Kanako revelead, “Well, it seems saying ‘–ya’ at the end of things. But, she’s still a little terrible…”. Kishino further exposes this embarassing side of her senior member, “It sounds kinda fake.”
Of course, without an ill-intent, Muro doesn’t forget to say about Yukirin, “Even when she’s made fun of, she’s such a kind, friendly, and nice person”.
