Here is Shibata Aya’s confession, with English subtitles, from the video game AKB 1/149 Renai Sousenkyo Love Election.
The twist in Shibata Aya’s confession scene comes during the confession scene, where she expresses herself in French. This may not be a surprise to followers of Shibata Aya, but her French ability is listed in her profile. According to 48pedia, it’s also said that she did her self introduction in French when she debuted as part of the 4th generation.
Aya uses two french phrases:
1. Je t’aime – I love you
2. Adieu – Farewell, or goodbye (forever)
Other than that, nothing else sticks out here – other than drinking milk while in the bath. That’s certainly new to me!
Here is the full transcript, with inline English translations.
Bath houses are nothing like hot springs, but a lot of people still visit, don’t they.
This was my first time, so I had a lot of fun!
What is this?
Everyone drinks milk when they step out of the bath, don’t they.
Mm, it’s good!
You know so many things that I don’t understand.
From now on, will you please keep teaching me?
What I said now was French for, “I love you!”
Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.
