Here is Kaneko Shiori’s confession ,with English subtitles, from the video game AKB 1/149 Renai Sousenkyo Love Election.
I haven’t done one of these videos in a long while, but I figured it’s about time I revisit the 149 series. Here’s the video, for your viewing pleasure:
It made me nostalgic for the old days of SKE48, as Kaneko Shiori (also known as “Kin-chan”), graduated some time ago. This confession suits her personality so well.
She seems to be mumbling “anamu anamau” a few times — I don’t think it means anything, but it sounds kind of like a buddhist chant. That might explain why she uses the word “goriyaku” (ご利益, or ごりやく), which means something like, “an answer to a prayer”, or “miracle”. Presumably, the answer to her pray that you’d date her!
Here’s the full text of the confession for those interested:
It’s my job to blow bubbles. Pretend to be hit by them, okay?
Wee! Go, go!
Ah! Did you pretend to get hit, just now? That’s really good!
Annamu namu namu aari!
Delicous! Okay! Well then, we should start dating!
Wow, this miracle is amazing! Let’s do this together.
Annamu namu namu
What? Why? My plans are ruined!
It’s gotten really boring all the sudden.
