    good job Kojimako time 

    Middle line has kanji .. so that's just too difficult for me ... but somewhere it says 7 year(s)
    #se rare#keta7#year
    魅せられ続けた年間
    Mise rare Tsudzuketa 7 nenkan
    7 years of fascination
    (ok ... full disclaimer applies ;))

    last line is:
    これからもずっと
    kore kara mo zutto
    And always will be

    and after the opening brace I get "(文字数:cry:" (mojisū:cry: '(word count:cry:" ....
    so maybe the fan wanted to say more but ran out of space on the card ??

    (and I spelled out the top line .... and then realized it's the same as the romanji below :) .. )

    btw, have there been other instances where an ex-member performed in the theater in 'uniform' like Miki-chan did?
    (during the spring festival she wore something matching but also clearly not a uniform)

    I've never really thought about it much, but it must be so liberating to graduate from AKB, especially if you've spent many many years in the group. Your whole life changes almost instantly. Suddenly, there's no one telling you where to be and when to be there. No one telling you what to wear on stage and what shows you can appear on. THE LOVE BAN BECOMES A THING OF THE PAST!!! No more singing songs you may not care much for. And I'm sure there are many many positives that I can't even begin to imagine. The only things you lose, it seems, are the regular paychecks and the camaraderie of the group.

    She did express so in today's tweet. She was kinda nervous about going out today (lol), and she thought she could just write about it in Mobame (lolol).

    -----

    You are writing as if being in the group is a bad thing. For one, most members seems to enjoy being in the group, doing groups activities, etc. It's a lost. Songs and performance are something I feel that most members enjoys. Mako even said so many times -- she really, really love being on stage and dancing. There are also other things members took for granted -- i.e. they can meet almost everyone at AKB48 individual HS, etc.

    Mako has outside agency. Her paycheck is paid by the agency and not AKS so graduation didn't change anything regarding to this.

    But specifically for Mako, most people believe she would do better outside AKB. One of her weakest point is HS event. I would even say it's the only minus point for her. But unfortunately, it is a major point in idol world. In the real world where HS stop being mattered, she is likely to shine even more.

    You forget that most of these girls have dreamed about being an idol for many years before they were accepted. They were looking forward to belonging to a group and wearing cute outfits, meeting fans and going to places they wouldn't have gone to if they had stayed regular students. They knew and mostly accepted that as long as they were a part of the group, boys couldn't be their main focus but that they had to focus on their career.

    The only thing I can agree with you on (but only to a certain degree) is the part about not having to sing songs anymore that you get bored of. Sometimes I think KFC is super overplayed, but then it comes on and it's an instant mood booster and I bet performing that on a stage with hundreds, if not thousands of people, shouting it back at you must be incredible. I think the 'worst' part about Mako's career the past few years was probably the fact that they performed the "Yume wo Shinaseru Wake ni Ikanai" stage for almost three years while Mako was part of Team 4, so that might have become boring. And then RESET was the only K stage she ever really witnessed because that was the stage that was going on before she moved to 4 and after 4; however, Mako was also part of two special stages (Adam and Eve, and Thumbnail), plus she was a regular Senbatsu member and didn't appear in theatre as much as some lower-ranked colleagues. So the theatre performances she did here and then might have been pretty fun.

    Mate, you forgot the most important: Kamikyoku Shibari. Naachan was an ace of that stage, but Mako can even be considered Center of that stage. (Even Naachan fans complained about this -- except for the unit part, Mako was way more eye catching overall) She centered or was in the front row of like half of the stage (out of 18 songs in that stage including the units, she centered 5 and is on front row of another 3, despite performing only in 14 songs). She was named centered of the Adam and Eve stage, but I believe even there she is not as prominent as in Kamikyoku Shibari.

    I forgot about that stage. I went to get the final performance, Takeuchi Miyu's grad stage, and discovered I already had the shonichi. Now I have to watch twice.

    Update:
    New PressBlog

    I graduated from AKB 48, where I was enrolled for 7 years.

    Traveling away from a place I really love is
    It was a very courageous thing in me

    [about the announcement of Haluhiroine]
    What does everyone think?
    Would you please be happy?

    With a little anxiety
    I was very excited when I announced

    But that anxiety is soon,
    Be wiped out with lots of "Congratulations"
    I am full of joy and happiness

    haluhiroine is
    Halu and Finnish mean wishes
    Heroine meaning female hero
    In combination. [as mentioned by innosu]

    [then she mentions the pop-up and the instagram account]


    https://pressblog.me/blog_posts/131522

    Second update:
    Rie and Mako had a three part instastory exchange (although it may not be over yet); I put it in Rie's thread.

    I was worried that after the graduation, Mako will be less active on her social media, but honestly it feels like she's doing even better; she changed the look of her instagram icons, changed the caption and overall seems very happy [​IMG]

    I believe this is the picture from dinner with Naachan, Miki, Miichan, and Haruu after her graduation stage.

    She went with Una-chan today.

    Fixed! You are right. Una reposted this picture of Mako so I thought they were together, but she was just talking about her dress ^^

    If she was at KCON, I wonder if she met with IZ*ONE or at least the J-line. I assume she isn't particularly close to either Nako, Hitomi or Sakura considering they weren't in the same team, but she's probably worked together with Sakura before on Senbatsu singles and stuff. Would have been nice to see her with one of them. Plus, she must have met all the girls before when she was still on Produce herself
