Takahashi Juri: I participated in today’s AKB48 10th year anniversary as part of AKB’s current members. I also did some songs with many graduated members from the first through third generation! I started crying during the last song, Sakura no Hanabira tachi. I remembered so many things and felt many things I hadn’t felt before. Later, I’ll put this altogether and send some mail. I’m so glad to have stood on today’s stage. Takamina took this photo. Performing songs like Heavy Rotation, etc, with the original members was so amazing.”

Finally, here’s a photo gallery:

I’m writing about useless and stupid things a lot, and I like to laugh. My policy is 一期一会。It means treasure your meeting with everyone!

  • Payuyu Fortyeight

    It’s so good to see them again together! :’)

    • reika

      Yesss! It’s like time travel :)))

  • Qwink

    It is great to see graduated members return and have fun like in the old days. Don’t want to caal anyone out but I just want to point out a little translating mistake in the part from Umeda Ayaka. 転がる石になれ translates to “become a falling stone”, or something like that. It is actually the title of one of my favorite songs. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERhQ0OpzG8g) Her post also makes alot more sense if you get that 😉

    • reika

      Yessss! It’s from favorite days of AKB :))
      Oh of course, I’m happy for your corrections! I mistake 右 and 石, it makes much more sense now lol. I’ll update it soon.

  • Sam

    You did an amazing job collecting all this for us, thank you so much!

    • reika

      You’re welcome (^_^) I’m glad if its useful to you.

      By the way, did you see some news that they might make AKB group in Mexico?! But maybe it’s rumor.

      • Sam

        What?!? No waaay! where did you see that news?

        Oh my god that would be awesome…
        Mexico is a great platform to start to conquer latin fans, if you success in Mexico, you have a lot of chances to do the same in the rest of latin america, so a mexican group does not sound so crazy. AKB will conquer the world!

        And….. maaaybe they can transfer, I dont know… maybe Fujie Reina♥♥♥♥♥♥ I would not mind to travel all around my country to see them. hahaha

        • reika

          I just read this morning when riding train. I’ll write article about later :)))

          Reina! She’s sooo cute. But if MXC48 is real, you might get Tano Yuka first lol.
