Akb49 Chapter 23
Happy Birthday Urakawa Minori-chan // From the Fans
Chapter 23: That's a fan
Ah~~ That was great~~!
What an intense atmosphere!!
Naruko! Don't feel so happy! It wasn't your birthday!
Yes! It's all for Minori today.
We might really make it when the fans increase like this!
Yo, Minori! Nothing less from our center!
Eh? Ah! Sorry!
Yeah! It was great!
It's time for high-touch. Get ready.
Thank you very much~~
Thank you very much~~
He's really not here... I wonder what happened....?
the holy day will be a blast.
When he was looking forward to it so much...
Happy birthday! Today was a real blast! // I hope you become a regular!
T- Thank you!
But it's all thanks to that old man.
If not for him, I wouldn't be here today.
You guys too? For us it's the same.
He had a ton of tickets.
Real fans sure are different.
I'm sure he's rich as shit.
Explain that more....!!
there's an old man giving out tickets // for free.
For a Santa he was rather slim and he wore glasses.
In wonder how much he spend? About 30 tickets a 10000 yen?
I hope the holy will be
I'm saving up at the moment!
do you go so far for me...!?
Eh!? Ah!! Minori-chan!
How was the holy day?
Sorry, I had some urgent business and I couldn't come...!
I can't continue to
deceive him anymore....!!
Please stop already...
being my fan...
I guess I'm not suited for being a teacher...
I finally noticed it at this age. Isn't that pathetic.
Of course I was once motivated and took pride in being a teacher. // But not only didn't I have the leader ability to guide the students
but I also didn't have the ability to intrigue them.
I got sick of it all and thought about quitting.
That's when I saw a show in Akihabara.
There were girls, who were far from perfect,
dancing focussed and with all their might.
During that there was an accident and a girl had to leave the stage due to an injury.
She surely must have sprained her leg, // but she returned onto the stage and danced without showing pain.
To the fans it was conveying the following:
isn't broken yet....
I can't express how much courage these words gave me.
There's no replacement for you in this world. You're my hope.
The time I'll stop being your fan is...
when you are AKB's Selection Center.
I can't even buy
Y- You girls....!!
What now. We can't get in together!
Let's call it quits. I didn't want to see it that bad anyway. (They're only trainees)
Why don't you take
R- Really!? You're giving them to us?
Yeah. I suddenly got something else to do.
you can go in together.
Okay! Thank you!
I might get hated by her
for not coming to her holy day...
But... // obviously it's better
that a lot of fans get in than me alone.
Does this feeling reach you,
There are fans because there's an idol. There's an idol because there are fans.
I don't understand anything about idols, seeing as I only realized this obvious fact now.
I danced for only the fans for the first time on this holy day.
You need to smile!
The one being born on this day might not have been me, Urayama,
but the idol----
