Here is Shibata Aya’s speech, with English subtitles, from the AKB48 2014 6th Senbatsu General Election.
Again, this is old news, but this post is mainly for education / historical / archive purposes. Enjoy! (^^
Like Kawaei Rina, this is first year that Shibata Aya has ranked in the top 16 senbatsu members. She ranked #17 in the 2013 election. Along with Suda Akari, she’s the only other SKE48 not named “Matsui” to rank in the top 16 🙂
Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.
