If you pay attention to any sort of AKB48 news, you may have noticed that the 10th year anniversary event has recently passed. Here’s a translation of when Akimoto Sayaka starts crying. As touching as it was, the members reactions were also pretty funny.
The transcript is courtesy of AKB Memorist. If I find the actual Live On Demand episode, I’ll try and sub it. Here’s the text:
秋元才加 → 号泣
Takamina: “Sayaka’s crying. Your timing is so awkward!”
Sayaka: “I’m sorry. I just thought about how happy I am” *more crying!*
高橋みなみ → ｗ
Sae: “This is really ugly. Please, don’t spread this around. For the sake of AKB, and for the future of AKB.”
Sayaka: “I’m graduated! Please don’t worry”
Other members: *laughter*
メンバーたち → ｗ
Takamina: “You’re like the guy that says, ‘I’m wearing'” **
Sae: “You’ve got it backwards though. So close, so close”
I know Sae-chan said not to spread this around, but couldn’t help myself. Sorry!

** This is a reference to Japanese comedian, Tonikaku Akarui Yasumura. You may have seen him already, as he has appeared on AKBingo before. Here’s a really hilarious Youtube video, with English subtitles, of his act:
Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.
