Like all of this, is so dazzling
Just like the long nights turning to dawn with the morning sun
Please forgive me for the following long sentences
As officially announced, I, Iwata Karen giving up the opportunity to transfer to SKE48 Team S
Truly truly regrettable. Living as a 15 years old, this amount of distress, this amount of crying, is the first since so long
[Refusal] or she hates SKE, I’m sure there will be people who think that way, but that would be a true misunderstanding.
Rather, I’ve always made SKE48-san, whom their performance I always admire, as my objective. Someday, I have dream to dance together with them.
Actually, when Yuasa manager come to AKB, my first conversation with him was
[I always love SKE48 dynamic performance, one day I want to try a concurrency post! It’s my dream]
That is why this chance which probably won’t come the second time, I really want to be thankful for it
If I went to Nagoya, I will probably change, can do more lively performance, that’s how I thought
But I have 3 worries when it comes to full transfer
First, my household circumstance
My grandparents’ health who lives in Miyagi has deteriorate since one year ago, being a single daughter my mum needs to travel back and forth Tokyo-Miyagi to nurse them while still aiding me
I who still keep holding on right now is all thanks to my family support. They’ve sacrifice so many, even things that our eyes can’t see, I don’t want to burden them anymore than this.
And the next thing is
I’m entering high school starts this spring
Just when I finally finished all the legal procedure then transfer announcement, it would be hard to switch my mind for this change within such short interval
Being a 15 years old, no matter to what extent I try to think this through, I just couldn’t come with conclusion in such short term
And more than anything, I want to continue my work that I have here in Tokyo. Also earthquake charity visit. There’s still so much that I have to do here.
After the announcement, I cried on stage
Jurina-san and Nakanishi-san came first to me,
[Karen, yoroshiku! I always love Karen’s performance, I’m glad I can dance together with you!]
I want to go to SKE! But this isn’t something that I can decide by myself
What to do
What to do
I want to perform with Team S!
Yesterday until the deadline, these words kept going round and round in circles right in my head
Even on Google there are messages from SKE fans
[We’ll be waiting!][I want to see Karen dance withTeam S!] such entry made me so grateful that my tears just won’t stop
That’s why, to not regret my incapability to go, due to my difficult circumstances, I will shift them by working harder in AKB!!
These five days worries truly felt like ten years
More than anything, I want to thank the fans who believe and support this path I choose
I am staying as AKB48 Team A, somehow from now on, please keep supporting me!
Mutou Tomu G+ 2014/02/27
There has been the official publication of the shuffle.
I’m in Team A like the beginning.
Until yesterday I talked with different members of the staff.
The subject of the talk was “Why, though I always did my best for Team K, I’m not in Team K but in Team A?”.
It’s not I dislike Team A, it was just a question: why am I in Team A?
The answer of staff’s members was easy.
Because in Team A there is Takamina-san.
They said me they want I absorb a lot of things watching Takamina-san’s back.
Those persons thought I can grow more in this way that staying in Team K.
Also, after the end of the big shuffle I talked with Yuuko-san.
When I said “I wanted to be in Team K” she encouraged me with her words.
She said me
You wanna succed me, right?
You can do it in another team too.
From now on too, improve the bad moments, and praise the good moments.
I’ll always watch you so do your best, I’ve expectations.
I’ll do again my best with Team A.
My feelings of love for Team K don’t change.
So I decided to make the new Team A an amazing team like Ooshima Team K.
I’ll put my K’s soul in the new Team A.
Also, I’ll keep to inherit Yuuko-san’s soul in Team A.
I don’t know when the new Team A will start but I wanna become the Team A’s Mutou Tomu praised by a lot of people.
Until that, I’ll keep absorb a lot of things in Ooshima Team K, and the next time I’ll do my best to connect them, so from now on too take care of me!
