Maeda Atsuko’s first solo live “I will be crying today”


Translated from this Oricon news article.


Actress and also a singer, Maeda Atsuko held her first solo live “SEVENTH CHORD” at Zepp Tokyo today. After graduating from AKB48, her chance to mingle with the fans has drastically decreased. During today’s reunion with 2700 fans, “I usually pretend to be tough and don’t say this but, I will be crying today” Maeda said with a bashful grin while wiping her tears.


At first, Maeda had enthusiastically said, “This is the 1st time for me to have a proper live. I’ve gotta show something that is worthwhile” but something unusual came over her on the 5th song, the ballad “Migikata”. Her voice was choked up multiple times & fans ended up singing on her behalf during the 2nd chorus. It is proceeded by “Kimi ha boku da” where she cried while holding her forehead. She held both hands together as a sign of apology but the crowd wrapped her up with a big warm “Acchan” call.


"The song & everyone kinda overlapped so… I’m really sorry…" Maeda laughed wryly. "It’s only the first 5 songs. But you would probably have thought that I was singing the finale" she made fun of herself, "Sorry for getting all emotional by myself there". Fans who had waited long for "singer Acchan" showered her with words like "Welcome back!" "Aitakatta" "We’ve been waiting". While holding her hand over her heart, she replied tearily, "Being on my own (solo) means that it gets harder to meet everyone, it has been lonely. So I’m glad I get to meet everyone today".


This live was supposed to be in commemoration of Seventh Code which was released last month but probably because she had been crying & was shaken up, she asked airily “It has been half a year since the release last year right?”. It was promptly corrected by the fans and she seemed flustered and replied, “Eh, it was released in March? Not October (last year)?” where the audience was subsequently enveloped in further laughter.

With a live band backing her up, Maeda sang a total of 18 songs enthusiastically for 2 hours. “I’ve gotta make more opportunities to meet everyone like this” she said at the end, making a promise for a reunion with her fans.

From Acchan’s live today…

MC: How do u wake up in the morning?

Acchan: Cellphone’s alarm I guess?

Fans: Takamina??

Acchan: …Takamina? Woken up by Takamina? That’s probably effective. She would have woken me up for sure. *trademark nose crinkle Acchan smile*


P/S: Acchan cried while singing Migikata at her live today (Takamina also cried while single this song at her solo live last year). Must be a meaningful song for them both. ;_;
