AKB48 Jyanken Taikai Guidebook 2013 – Akicha and Rena
I will win and change my life!!
► Aki Takajo(JKT48 Team J&AKB48 Team B) VS Ayaka Okita(NMB48 Team M)
“This year I will wear an animal costume again”
After the draw was decided, I talked with Okita Ayaka-chan for the first time. She is a very cheerful girl, so I have to win with my fighting spirit!! Though I checked her Google+, I couldn’t bring myself to add a comment on her page. I’m the “Comment Master*”, but with her as my opponent, I feel kinda embarrassed to post a comment (Laugh).
My lucky charm is a costume. This year I will wear animal costume again**. For an example, I’m thinking in the line of a “strange animal” one which is somehow connected to Jakarta. My tactics are a secret. Because if I said them in the Jyanken book, my opponent will know (Laugh).
I’ll participate as a JKT48 representative, if I get center (position), I will sing in the Indonesian language during the solo section. And of course, I want to shoot the MV at Jakarta!!
*She is called “comment master”. Because she often comments on many members Google+.
**She wore dog costume at 2011, rabbit costume at 2012.
Comment from AKB GM (Mr.Yuasa): She is strong at arm-wrestling, so move that power from arm to hand and be active in Jyanken. To appeal for JKT48, do your best!
The Girl from Overseas That Came to Challenge the Original AKB48
► Rena Nozawa(JKT48 Team J&AKB48) VS Haruna Kojima(AKB48 Team B)
“Though I’m nervous, I will win and want to help promote JKT48”
When the double team position with AKB48 was decided, at first I was filled with nervousness. But JKT48 members, who were always together with me for 2 years said to me “Do your very best as JKT48’s representative!”. Then, I think “I must get rid of this nervousness!”. So, I will use this Jyanken Taikai as a chance to help promote JKT48. My target is to enter Senbatsu carrying the feeling of everyone in Jakarta.
My first match opponent is Kojiharu-san, who is strong at Jyanken. Kind of different from live shows, I can’t practice and do preparation, and with that, my first match opponent is Kojiharu-san. It’s been typical of me that if I win once, then I can win and win like riding on a wave. So, if I can win the first match, I believe that I can enter Senbatsu!!
Comment from AKB GM(Mr.Yuasa): She is double team JKT48 with AKB48. She can speak Japanese, Indonesian and English fluently. Personally, I also want her to enter Senbatsu as JKT48 representative.
