Sashiko: Came Back for 1 Day Only as an AKB48 member

  July 23, 2012

On the left it says “An Unfortunate Live with only 1 Person”

Sashihara Rino (19), having been moved to HKT48, due to a relationship scandal, had on the 22nd, a 1 day only come back to AKB48. During Fuji TV’s “27 Jikan Terebi” (27 Hours TV), she had a segment labelled “Tatta hitori no zannen raibu” (An Unfortunate Live with only 1 Person), where she passionately performed AKB’s major debut song “Aitakatta” as a solo. While she was feeling the loneliness, AKB48 members appeared on stage as a surprise. The members that appeared included, Maeda Atsuko (21), Takahashi Minami (21), and others (not including Team K, who were having a live at Okinawa). They then all performed an “Aitakatta” with Sashiko in the lyrics, which delighted Sashihara.
Although Sashihara was surprised, she still performed AKB48’s Hit Medley as the Center with great enthusiasm. But at the end of the medley Shoufukutei Tsurube (60), being dressed in a Tutankhamen costume, infiltrated the stage and stole the spotlight, and Sashihara was pushed aside. When Shoufukutei Tsurube did appear the lyrics of “Aitakatta” also changed to fit him.
But at the very end the lyrics went back to “Sashiko”.
Sashiko had this to say after the performance, “I’m happy that I was able to dance with all of you after such a long time.” While also mentioning with a Hetare spirit, “The speed of everyone’s hands was way too fast~”
