Ok, now that I have Managed to calm down and pull my self together, and take in everything that has happened today, First of all I want to say congratulations to Milky for winning this year’s Janken Taikai, it had been a tough year so far, but she kept a brave face and kept on looking…

The Janken tournament has ended!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it into the senbatsu at the Janken tournament, I was just one step away…
But, Mio was able to make it into senbatsu! Congrats!
The AKB48 38th single senbatsu was announced!
I made it into senbatsu and I was chosen to be one of the double center.
Honestly, I can’t think straight yet and I don’t know what to say to everyone…
Mayuyu-san said “I’ll be here for you”; those words are truly an emotional support to me.
I’ll update again later.
This is Miyawaki Sakura.
Once again, I was chosen for the 38th single senbatsu.
It’s all thanks to your support!
Thank you very much.
And also from HKT, of course Sasshi, as well as Haruppi and Madoka are in senbatsu!
There’s 4 of us!!
I’m very, very happy!
Honestly, I was really worried about whether or not I’d be chosen for the next senbatsu.
For the election senbatsu, I was able to make it into senbatsu because of all your support.
But I feel like my own abilities are still lacking so I was very worried…
If I wasn’t able to make it in, I would disappoint all of you.
I couldn’t stop thinking about things like this.
But then today.
The Janken tournament ended and suddenly, a VTR started.
When the words “Senbatsu Announcement” popped up, my heart started beating so fast.
Am I in? Will it be okay?
The staff member walked out and said he would announce the center first…
Ah, I wonder who the next center will be?
I just wondered about it as an outsider.
First, Mayuyu-san was called.
I wonder who will be next…
Ah, maybe that person, or this person? I was trying to predict who it’d be.
But the name “HKT48” echoed through the stadium.
Honestly, I thought it’d be Sasshi.
Actually, I’m sure that’s what everyone thought…
But then he said Team K4, concurrent with AKB Team A…
And my name was called.
Everything after that is a blur.
Takamina-san came to my side as I broke down crying, Mayuyu-san held me, Paruru-san kept saying “It’s okayー!” to try to cheer me up…
Sasshi came running down and jumped at me…
She told me “I’m really happy! This is great!”.
So many of my senpai reached out to me kindly…
I couldn’t stop crying.
I couldn’t sort my thoughts, to the point where I didn’t even know why I was crying anymore.
AKB48’s double center.
Writing it down like this makes me once again realize what a great thing this is.
I started off watching AKB-san on TV.
And now I’ll be standing in AKB’s center.
When it was announced, I couldn’t believe it and I kept thinking over and over that I must be dreaming.
But now I’m feeling very optimistic.
Because, I won’t be alone.
Next to me is my great senpai Mayuyu-san.
Lots of senpai members will be supporting me.
And more than anything, I have all of you.
You’re always with me no matter what happens.
At times, we’re happy together, at times, I cause you worry…
You always help me overcome things.
And that’s why I was able to grow this much.
I can’t even think of a me without you.
Just like at today’s Janken tournament.
I was worried about the Janken and very nervous, but all of your loud, loud cheers. It fully reached me.
Unfortunately, I lost, but I was very proud.
That there were so many people cheering for me.
That’s why, I think everything will be okay.
I hope to continue growing every day so that one day, I can become like the moon, shining brightly after absorbing all of your warm light.
Please continue to support me from now on!
