RH2013 14. TWO ROSES
One of those profermances which CAN’T be performed by other except by the original members.
TWO ROSES is Matsui Rena and Matsui Jurina. No one else.
They discussed about many things: The Nagoya Dome, their performances, SKE’s essence and future, prospects about the Reformation, 3rd gen love and more…Enjoy!!
ps: Seeing my 2 oshis choose my 2 top RS made me feel very happy for some reason…

The curtains closed upon the 2 Days in Nagoya Dome, that were filled with huge emotions.
The concert not only was a compilation of the 5 years and a half until now, but also the moment for SKE48 to open a new door.
Which is why this month we held a symposium with the 3rd generation members that will become the core of SKE’s 2nd chapter.
We had the three of them – who are very close to each other – look back at the Nagoya Dome and, at the same time, talk about the future.
Interviewer: This time I’d like to look back at Nagoya Dome with these 3 3rd generation members. With what kind of feelings did you face this decisive, important, experience?
Kinoshita: The debut of the 3rd generation happened during the concert [Nagoya Ikki] in Zepp Nagoya (December 25 2009).
At the time, our seniors told us: “Isn’t it amazing that your first performance will happen in Zepp Nagoya?”.
So if we think in these terms, wow…the Draft members suddenly found themselves directly in Nagoya Dome (laughs)
Kizaki: Yeah, you’re actually right…
Kinoshita: I also realized how far SKE48 has already come.
Honestly, when it was announced that the concert would’ve turned into a 2 Days one, I was happy yeah, but I was also worried, wondering whether the seats would’ve actually been filled by the audience.
Yet, during hand-shake events, I had everyone tell me things like: “I’m going to Nagoya Dome!”, “I’ll be sure to come to Nagoya Dome!!”, and those passionate feelings made all my worries disappear.
Interviewer: Nagoya’s fans sure are passionate, aren’t they?
Kinoshita: It really felt completely different, compared to when we had the chance to appear on Nagoya Dome’s stage for AKB48’s Tour.
This time, the fans changed the pen lights’ colors for every Team! Seeing the Dome dyed in a single color made think about a lot of different things. For example, about how the 3rd generation is now composed of only 6 members, or about how I would’ve liked to stand on that stage together with the graduated members…
Kizaki: When, for the opening song of the first day, the 1stgeneration members were singing [Kamigami no Ryouiki], all the other members were standing down the stage, dressed as security guards and…truth is we were all crying.
Suda: All the security guards cried (laughs)
Kizaki: We entered Nagoya Dome the day before the concert, for the rehearsal. In that very moment my heart got filled with emotions. For the first time I got hit by the realization that SKE48 struggled alone to make its way until that point. Once the performance started, everyone would kindly be looking at us.
It was different when we went there with AKB48.
But this time, even though of course the audience was not made only of my fans, no matter where I was dancing, everyone would shake their hands towards me! I thought “Yeah, this is what it means to support the entire group!”(tln: HakoOshi), and I felt really happy.
Suda: To stand on Nagoya Dome’s stage is something to be proud of, for Nagoya’s people. However, those who brought us this far, are members who already graduated, and all our fans.
I wanted to stand on Nagoya Dome’s stage without forgetting those feelings.
Interviewer: Let’s now talk about the contents of the concert.
Kinoshita: What made me happy is that I could sing [Aozora Kataomoi]. That’s because it’s a song I’m very attached to, being it also the first one for which I was chosen as a senbatsu member.
Suda: Can I boast a bit? During the first day, for the performance of [Seishun no Mizushibuki], we used water pistols and…truth is that one has been my own idea!!
Kizaki: Right, it was really nice to see how, just like that, many members’ ideas were actually implemented and brought to life.
Kinoshita: We sang [RUN RUN RUN] while sliding on roller skates…and it was actually me to propose for us to go up and down the slope on the passage through the audience.
And well, it was okay until I just suggested it, but…truth is it was very very scary.
Even the fans said it: “Yukko had a very serious expression in that moment…!”(laughs)
Kizaki: [Koutei no Koinu]’s monocycle was quite scary as well.
It was such a long time for me to ride one that…I had forgotten how to do it! Even though I didn’t fall during the rehearsal, I ended up falling in the actual performance. The member who took the initiative and came to help me at that time was Saitou Makiko-san. I’m really grateful for that.
Suda: I had the privilege to work in collaboration with the international dancer Ebina Kenichi-san.
At first I thought: “Oh, yeah! A chance for me to stand out!!”, but, unable to find time to practice as much as I wanted, I ended up memorizing everything on the day of the performance. I’m terrible when it comes to memorizing moves, so to do it on that very day was incredibly scary for me. But in the end it turned out like a musical and it was really fun. And I was even able to show off my flexibility.
Kinoshita: Akari, do you have any idea about how amazing of a person Ebina-san is? He’s such a great dancer that nobody in the world can beat him!!
Suda: I do, I do! He’s [The worldwide Ebina-san], right? So I thought that, since I got to dance with him, I became [The worldwide Suda Akari].
Kizaki: Yeah, right (laughs). Speaking of collaborations, we had the pleasure to perform [Darkness] together with the World Order. I immediately checked the clip once it was over and wow, I didn’t think we’d be able to match our moves in such a nice way. Because, I mean, we haven’t practiced more than 1, 2 times!!
Suda: We had many guests come to Nagoya Dome. I believe people may have discordant opinions about this, but my family really loved it. With the help of the guests, the Nagoya Dome got dyed in even more liveliness and brightness and I think we managed to have everyone enjoy many different faces of SKE48.
Interviewer: The presence of the former Chuunchi Dragons players Yamasaki Takeshi-san and Inoue Kazuki-san added something to the show as well.
Suda: Actually, I’ve been to one of their signature and handshake event!! That one was the first handshake event of my entire life!
Interviewer: So someone who now is on the side of those shaking hands, once has been among the people having their hands shaken!
Suda: Exactly. I still have the signature board from back then at home!!
Moreover, I was the member leading the MC in which the two of them appeared! I got so incredibly hyper!!!
Kizaki: And it was really enjoyable to see such a Sudachan, since she gets excited quite rarely!
Suda: Thank you for having called them for my sake!
Kizaki: Okay, let’s proceed to the next question! (laughs)
Suda: The two of them made a toss batting and kindly launched balls towards the guests’ seats. However, I didn’t happen to be present during such an important moment, because I was changing outfits.
Interviewer: On the other hand, there’s one among you who had the chance to have Nagoya Dome all for herself.
Kizaki: That would be me. I was given the chance to sing Sashihara Rino’s [Sore demo suki da yo]. I’m not the type who tends to get nervous, yet I unusually got really agitated.
I kept talking to myself right before the performance, mumbling things like: “OMG, OMG!! Nah, it’s all right! Yeah, it’s all right!!”. (laughs)
But then, when I actually got out on the stage, I finally could perceive what it meant to have the Nagoya Dome all for myself.
When the intro started playing and my name appeared on the monitor, huge cheering shouts raised up from the audience! And then the response, with the fans saying: “Exists!” …
I think almost every single person in Nagoya Dome answered back. (tln: the “question” was: “I’m always being an idiot, doing nothing but mistakes, but even so, someone who would say that I’m fine like this…”. By the way, the lyrics got changed a bit from the original.).
I guess it was a once in a lifetime kind of experience.
Suda: Nah, there are chances for something like that to happen again!
Kizaki: In any case, I was way too happy. I kept smiling the entire day!
Suda: Plus, the blue outfit was really cute! When it was time for the fitting, all the members asked the staff: “Who’s going to wear that cute outfit?”. She started monopolizing the members’ interest even before the performance(laughs)
Kizaki: The costume designer created the outfit from zero! The fact that it’s been made expressly for me, emotionally moved me.
Interviewer: Did you feel satisfied at the end of the 2nd day?
Kinoshita: I felt like I gave my all, that I went through it thoroughly . I don’t think I’ve ever slept as pleasantly as I did the night after the last day of the concert. I got like: “All right, let’s sleep!”.
While feeling gratitude for having joined SKE48, I peacefully fell asleep.
Suda: Such a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
Kinoshita: Both the painful and enjoyable things…I couldn’t have experienced them if I didn’t join SKE48. I’ve shared so many things with members until now. And we managed to reach a goal that every single member kept aiming at. It was very well conveyed how it was not only us, but also the fans, to rejoice about it. Despite being on the Nagoya Dome’s stage, I felt just as if I was in our theater! I hope this will become a turning point leading to the next step.
Kizaki: Going around the Kobe, Yokohama and – of course – Nagoya stages, I think SKE has showed all its power. What I realized once the concert was over is that, just like Sudachan said before, this was made possible thanks to our seniors – starting from the 1st generation’s ones – and the fans who supported us.
But if I were to be asked if that was SKE’s max, then I’d say I think we can still aim higher and higher. I don’t think this is the end. Wouldn’t it be just fine for us to perform once per year in Nagoya Dome!? We’d just have to make those concerts evolve into something better every time.
Suda: After the 2 days of the concert, I feel like SKE48 has been granted with yet another place to shine. And the new song we performed for the first time in Nagoya Dome – Mirai to wa? – is actually a message song also including the meaning of the future existing only in relation to the past. So the Nagoya Dome concert made me realize that I want for us, on top of our past experiences, to go on representing SKE48’s future.
Interviewer: Now let’s move to the second theme. How will SKE48 be after Nagoya Dome?
Suda: I actually wonder what will be of us, when this issue will be released…
Interviewer: So that’s the mental state you’re in right now, after all…?
During AKB48’s Request Hour it was announced for a Big Reformation Festival to be held. This interview is happening before the results of the Reformation are out, so I’m guessing it’s a moment in which it would be hard to answer if I were to ask you about your current goals…
Suda: Last year’s Reformation has been one of the most relevant things ever happened in my entire life. And it’s because I’ve already experienced it, that I feel quite composed as for what concerns this new Reformation. Which is why,no matter what will happen, I’m confident I’ll be able to overcome it. In case there will be some change regarding my position, I shall just keep being true to myself. That’s what I decided in my heart.
Interviewer: Kizaki-san, in case it was decided for you to transfer, would you want to keep yourself unchanged or would you prefer to go through some changes depending on the circumstances?
Yuria: There are both things I’d like to change and others I’d want to keep unchanged. The consciousness of basic things such as the reckless dance performances, the manners and the way of properly greeting that I learned when I was a research students…that’s what I wouldn’t want to change, ever.And in case it were to be decided for me to move to a new group, I’d like to be able to gain something new that I’ve never had until now.
Suda: If we were to be asked what SKE’s essence actually is about, that would be recklessness.
Before their debut, the 1st generation members practiced the [Party ga Hashimaru yo!] Stage for an entire day. Their figure as they did such a thing was so cool. And we all necessarily have to go through that kind of lessons during our periods as Research Students. What I think SKE48’s future needs, is to never forget those feelings.
Interviewer: I think the spirit of the SKE48 fans who support the entire group(HakoOshi), is based on the feeling of love towards those performances!
Suda: My ideal way of performing is to dance with so much energy that my arms would get ripped off, to dishevel my hair, acting recklessly. When I was a Research Student I used to observe my Team S seniors dance, admiring how cool they were. I found it so great how they would use all their energy in every single moment.
Interviewer: Did you learn that from your seniors’ words?
Suda: No, it was from their backs. It was all written on their backs. I too, want to become a senior able to teach the very same things.
Interviewer: Are there Research Students that caught your attention?
Kizaki: For me it’s Noguchi Yume-chan. Sometimes, Research Students get entrusted with a Stage’s under position very suddenly. Yet she kindly keeps memorizing new positions without saying a word. Lately it feels like she’s performing in the theater pretty much every day! I think that this not only really reflects what a Research Student should be like, but I think it also reflects SKE’s essence. I love her performances as well. (tln: I’d say there was no fail in Yuria’s eyes, as she recognized SKE’s essence in Yumechi…)
Suda: I say Kumazaki Haruka-chan. I’m often told by my fans how her way of performing resembles mine. And as I observed her moves, it’s actually true there are similarities. It’s very well conveyed how she’s working hard.
Interviewer: I think the way SKE48 is will change with the Big Reformation, but…don’t you want to stand in the center, Kizaki-san?
Kizaki: As for being prepared to stand there, I am. But there’s no way for me to know how things will turn out to be regarding this matter as well, so… In any case, I must stand firm and persist. If I’d be appointed to that position, I’m perfectly willing to stand there.
Suda: It’s true we don’t know what will happen with the Big Reformation but, just like we do our best to memorize and dance the choreographies of the songs we receive, we‘ll have to accept this Big Reformation and make it our own. I think that’s important, and that it’s what we should do. Because if we don’t, we can’t manage to make the fans enjoy.
Kizaki: Plus, no matter the way our environment might change, the 3rd generation’s bond will be eternally unchanged.
Suda: That’s right!
Kinoshita: The bond of the 3rd generation is indestructible!
Goddamnit, OTP stands for one true pairing.. so why do I have like seven-hundred and thirty?
