    That having Kawaei leave the group is like a kick in the gut for her, but seeing how serious Kawaei is in acting, she couldn’t tell Kawaei how she feels. “The other day, I called her and met up with her. We went to cafe, watched a movie, and after that, we took a walk from Roppongi to Shibuya. Remember we spend 40 minutes on the footbridge in Shibuya, talking about our past? I couldn’t say back then, but talking about our memories, I suddenly felt your graduation is real, and that I was scared, unable to say anything, unable to say ‘Let’s go home’…”
