It’s was the first time for me seeing our performance.
When I returned home, I didn’t have the courage to watch it.
Back then since I had to appear with AKB right after,
I had no idea how everybody was doing,
how they felt…
But today seeing how everybody was rejoicing,
smiling and crying…
I realized we were all sharing the same feeling,
and how great of a chance it had been for us
to be able to perform in Kouhaku.
