At the Yokohama Arena Concert,
Michishige Sayumi graduated from Morning Musume。.
Annoucing my graduation at 4/29, at that time
“With the half year left, I want to make lots of fun memories with all the fans,”
that’s what I thought.
I’ve made lots and lots and loーーーts
This half year from my graduation announcement to my graduation,
I felt more love from all the fans than ever
All of it… was fun you know.
And… it went in a flash….
I love all of you so much
Well, cause you said you love Sayumi！ lol
Everyone who loves Sayumi
I loーーーove you！
At yesterday’s graduation live
midway through, my leg ended up hurting, so much I thought I couldn’t dance, it was reallllly frustrating, I was inexcusable,
for myself that kind of frustrating thing is so frustrating （lol）
now when I try looking back on it, it was still a joy
The Sayumin Call and pink penlights.
The cheers, encouragement, kindness, and love from everyone came through a lot.
I firmly took it all in！
The power of everyone’s love is amazing. I can’t rival it.
Now that I’ve graduated from Morning Musume。, there’s this mysterious sensation like I’m honestly still kinda in a dream…
No rather, now is reality,
truthfully, doing activities as part of Morning Musume。 for １２ years is a dream like event.
Getting to spend 12 years as a dream like time well
of course Sayumi is a fortunate person.
For me who can’t do anything
me who can’t do anything, much less I end up causing trouble
getting lots of support from you all, thank you.
For loving me, thank you.
Yesterday’s final dress.
“I want to wear a dress done with flowers！
I want it to be like the dress itself is a field of flowers！”
they made my wishes all come true for me
Sitting down it really looks like a field of flowers rightー?(The 1st Picture)
During the time I was singing Akai Freesia in this dress
it was supremely delightful！
Singing, in these 12 years was totally one of my weak points though （lol）
Still I felt it, “I love singing！”
I felt like everyone being here, really all kinds of things have changed huh?
with lots of confidence I’ve gotten stronger！
Truly thank you so much.
After the performance with all of Morning Musume。’14！(The 2nd Picture)
I love them！
Getting to be so close with them like this, it made me happy
I’m glad I was with these members！
thank you for being Sayumi’s juniors.
New leader Fukuchan！
If it’s Fukuchan it’ll be fine！
And the new order Morning Musume。 after my graduation will totally be fine too！
Cause it’s all of them for sure.
Everyone is cool that’s why！
I love them
And my Morning Musume。ＯＧ seniors.
they came to watch the concert for me
after the show they gave me warm words like
“Job Well Done,” and, “You gave it your all for these 12 years huh.”
Admiring my seniors, becoming a part of Morning Musume。, getting scolded a lot, learning, in the end being held tightly, really it made me happy.
My seniors were there so the current me is here.
The current Morning Musume。 is here.
Really I’m grateful.
And from here on as well, Morning Musume。 is continuing on.
And, Hello!Pro members！
All of you, thank you！
Standing on stage with everyone, talking, the time we spent together, it was fun.
yesterday you came to see it and enjoyed it too, that made me happy.
“Michishige-san, your singing voice has grown～”
that’s what she told me (lol)
all the staff.
Thank you so much！
Until the end, I caused trouble but… all the staff did their work with love for Morning Musume。, I feel grateful from the bottom of my heart.
And, all of the lotsof entertainers and officials, and all the fans gave lots of presents and fantastic flowers and stuff.
Really, really, thank you so much！
Everyone, from here on too, please continue to support Morning Musume。.
Truly, thank you so much.
