    Thank you @YKT and @majuholic0511 :blush:
    @what_tis_name and I has been thinking to start Mayuyu fan pool since last year. This year will be much harder for Mayuyu to win - too many strong competitions and other people fans are probably 'more desperate' to win. We really need to band together if we want Mayuyu to win again this year.

    One of the other reason we started this campaign is because we thought it might be harder to get votes this year. Last year ithebigc was helping us out since he was in Japan, and the year before one of the mod also sold votes with a good price.

    Of course you can also buy the CDs yourself or buy your own voting codes from other people. I'm compiling a Voting Guide for Mayuyu and it will include other options beside this Donation Pool campaign. Do whichever way works for you, since we Mayuyu fans have the same goal that is to make her win again :)

    Do let me know if you have any questions!

    Mayu always looks great on UTAGE! This is only the second time she has sung on it, right? It seems a shame she doesn't get more opportunity to.

    @Ruki Thank you for organising this! Will donate a sum on top of buying votes myself :)

    I tried translating this article, please pardon my awkward English phrasing at times and if I made any mistakes. :^^;:

    Watanabe Mayu: 1-2 hours of sleep as a drama serial lead, "This is the time I've worked the hardest" despite busy/pressured days

    Watanabe Mayu-san, of popular idol group "AKB48", who will have a double lead with Inamori Izumi-san in drama "Tatakau! Shoten Girl", accepted the interview in the filming location. It's her first time being the lead for a drama serial airing during Golden Prime timeslot (7pm-11pm). Watanabe-san said "Remembering my lines is a priority over sleep" and "My sleeping duration is 1-2 hours".

    "Tatakau! Shoten Girl" is based on original novel series "Shoten Girl" by Aono Kei-san. Using an established bookstore "Pegasus Bookstore" as the setting, it features Kitamura Aki (Watanabe-san) and vice-manager Nishioka Rio (Inamori-san) who were saved by books. The drama thrillingly shows the 2 characters' figures who are fighting boldly in their jobs, love and lives.

    Aki is a strong-minded and freewheeling bookstore staff. Watanabe-san said "I fully realise it's a difficult role" and laughed about "(Aki is) a person who is straightforward and lively, and often says her opinions. Since she is always lively, there's rarely any times where (Aki) feels down. Maintaing the liveliness is tough".

    Watanabe-san, who "places priority in remembering her lines over sleep". Her sleeping duration is "1, 2 hours. It's something like this when I'm busy. I feel more braced up if I don't sleep. Having lived 20 years, this is the time where I think I've worked the hardest". "When I must do my best, I'll be fired up more than usual" were her thoughts regarding this work. "I think chances like these will not happen again, so I'll do my very best and not make this chance a temporary one, and I'll be driven daily" she said, while looking straight ahead.

    Watanabe-san, who received words of encouragement "I think that doing dramas alongside AKB48 is fun, so do your best" from "Senior" Oshima Yuko-san, who has graduated from AKB48 and is on the actress route, has pledged "I'll do my best on both sides". She also said "I want to be an actress who can deeply touch people's hearts through acting. I'm determined on doing my best now".

    The drama airs every Tuesday, 10pm, from the 14th. The first episode will be extended by 15 minutes.

    Thanks for all the updates!

    @ace: the guy who uploaded that in H!O has a copy of the whole performance. He said it might take some days to upload the team b zenkoku tour in yamagata. It is either him who uploads it or someone else, depends on who uploads first. Just keep your eyes in H!O. :whistle:

    Or wait for YKT to find a video of the whole thing. :D

    Thanks @Ruki for the info...I should ask my friend since i'm not familiar with PayPal...

    Just watch mayu performance for akb 40th single and i'm prepared to expect that mayu dance was not good since many people keep comment that her dance is suck & also since in kibouteki refrain mayu dance was kinda save..
    But omg..mayu dance was great than I expected..her expression..her movement also she looks beautiful in her dress and it really suit her..she is the goddess..i'm also happy since she is in same position with takamina which remind me with kazewa fuiteiru. Now I can keep smiling at ease after satisfied watch mayu performance l. Just want to share my feelings as mayu oshi.

    Mayuyu utage performance is absolutely was one of the best until today. The song os good and it suit her. I'm glad her duet was suit with chage. I can't help but keep reapeted the Natsu Natsu cocunuts parts. The way mayu sing it was cute for me. Omg at the high note girl. She was doing it twice and it was good for akb girl.especially with her girly anime voice.

    Also mayu perform nakigahara hohoende...yuko song but mayu nailed it perfectly for.me.
    Her emotion and voice suit the song and it got through me..luckily i don't understand japanese if not i'm gonna crying..

    I'm happy to hear that the show's ratings peaked during Mayu's performance :) 16.9 at 9:59pm huh? :chuffed: is that considered a good rating in Japan? What do shows usually rate in that time slot?

    So cute [hehe]

    Wow Mayu's face is everywhere :^^;:
