Maeda, why have you spread that newspaper like that? But take a look at this... Tadaa! Namida Surprise is now on sale! - You were happy to show us that! - It made me glad, yeah. We have here a letter from the students who requested us to come. This time, Yuko, could you read it out? "On the 1st of June, the Ishikawa Highschool is meeting to celebrate it's 95th birthday. On the 25th of May, the school year is over, so we'd like you to come celebrate our anniversary of the school's foundation with us. So please, if you can, come see us! From the representatives of Ishikawa Highschool's 2nd class of the 2nd year". These students are COMPLETELY unaware that AKB48 is going to be visiting them. - It's a secret! - A complete secret. So let's throw a SURPRISE party and SURPRISE the whole school! And that of course meant that no one but the teacher knew that AKB48 was coming for a visit! The class representatives who made the request for us to come are Dobashi, Kyoshima and Endo. And their favorite is...
Well, you must know this, Yuko. Last time it was Acchan, but now you're asking me... [Sign: Getting her hopes up ] Thaaaaat's right! Their favorite... Their favorite... is Maeda! [Sign: Disappointed ] I want this meet to be really dramatic, too. Well don't you JUST love the drama! However! For this to be a successful romantic encounter...! Today the school building was filled to the brim with students and parents attending the school festival! Their arrival had to be kept an absolute secret! Which meant they arrived to a hiding place near the school at first. We're here! Right behind this bus, is the school. How exactly are we going to sneak in there? - It's okay. I've put some real thought into that one. - It's gonna be fine. Just relax... Sata has prepared the PERFECT way to sneak in without being find out. Alright, they've changed.
- And this is PERFECT now, is it? - It IS. Just look at these disguises. We've got some kendo in there... [Sign: Kendo ] ... some movers... [Sign: Kendo ] ... some movers... [Sign: Movers ] ... and of course, our horse. [Sign: Movers ] ... and of course, our horse. [Sign: Horse? ] - That horse looks freaking terrible! They'll notice it! - It's fine. There's 4 in there. - They'll definitely find out! - Look at this, Kiyoto. Just some normal boxes, right? It's hot in here! It's a sauna in there! Um... Oh, you've got one more. - Who's that? - Who I am? And the correct answer is... - Is this going to work? - It depends on your acting ability. I'm not sure it is about that, though... If they find out, it's going to be really bad. What are you complaining about? Kojima went all the way with her catcher role. See? [Sign: Catcher Kojima ] She's the one sticking out like a sore thumb! How are the Badboys going to get in? It's fine. We've got this. - What is it? - It's hot!
They'll find out! Just endure it for now. OK, we should start sneaking in the building now. - Kojima, are you ready? - Play ball! Here starts the School Invasion plan! The distance to the school is about 150m. There's two places where they might be easily spotted by the students. The first being the heavily used front entrance. The second the near vicinity of the corridor leading to the food stalls. Can they break through these two points and sneak in without being noticed? Alright, we're going in. Should we start with the kendo-team? The catcher can go too. Take care. First up, the school's kendo-team and catcher will try sneaking in. The suspicious trio are now approaching the first barrier. The front entrance... ...is easily passed. Or that's what they thought, when...! A male student approaches from ahead! This is bad! [ Sign: Safe ] He didn't notice AKB48, and they managed to sneak in the safety of the school. Next up, the most fragile group of them all, the delivery team!
Melting smoothly into the surroundings, they were all calm and composed when... One of the parents is there. When they met a mother on their route. This was bad... Much appreciated. We're Sakawa couriers. - Is there someone in there? - No. [ Sign: Close call!! ] Pay no mind. [ Sign: Close call!! ] They're were talking out there. Even worse, at the entrance some students appear! They passed through safely... But!? Did they get caught!? [Sign: Safe ] The delivery team somehow got in safely! And lastly we have... Are they going to be alright? Nervously they marched down towards the school, when they got into HUGE trouble...!? 1-2, 1-2... [Sign: A student draws nearer ] [Sign: Caught!? ] - She's staring like hell. - And you're avoiding like hell. [Sign: Avoided to safety ] After which they met many more difficult situations... But eventually without being found out, they got inside the school. Everyone has managed to make it inside the school safely! After which the members joined with the teacher who was going to help them with their plan.
The teacher is going to call in the students who made the invitation through the school's PA-system. Who, speaking of which, are these three. And their dream? To meet Maeda. In which case, let's present them with a really romantic encounter in the library! However! Last time, we also had the meeting take place at the library. Since the three probably already seen this before, a slight modification to the plan was in order... Which was!? Should we try calling her with this, now? Maeda? Maeda? Standing in for Maeda at the library is Kiyoto dressed as her! Actually, the real Maeda is hidden behind the bookshelves! The plan is, while Kiyoto keeps them busy, Maeda sneaks in behind them and surprises them with a "Who-could-it-be?" So let's put "Unexpected-surprise-from-a-dream-idol" plan into full swing! So now it's nearing the time we should ask the teacher to call the students in the library. We should start our surprise plan now. Please, teacher, you can call the trio to the library.
This is a call for the students. 2nd year's 2nd class' Tobashi Takuma, Kyoujima Shoui, Endo Tomohiro. Come as soon as possible to the library. I'm nervous... Alright. The teacher has now called for them. The three who have no idea what's going to happen, are gonna come to the library. And meet Maeda. Just what kind of reaction are they going to have? - I'm nervous! - Can't wait! Stop fidgeting around... Just when!? Here they are! They're straight here from their duties. The none-the-wiser trio arrives! Alright, they're in. And they spotted Kiyoto immediately! But then!? They're gonna be stunned in a second. Here we go... - Kiyoto, turn your head... - But the guys have turned their interest to the cardboard boxes which were left behind! Actually, behind them is where Maeda is currently hiding! She's doomed! But then!?
Kiyoto makes his move! "Aitakatta, aitakatta Tobashi..." Um... You're surprised? - I'm Kiyoto from Badboys. - Hello. Kiyoto, they are completely gutted. Kiyoto... It's too bad, but AKB48 were just too busy to be able to make it today. - Are you disappointed? - Yeah... That's why I came alone today to cheer you. I was thinking we could play "Guess-which-hand" with a rubber band. If you get it right, I'll give you a real photo of Maeda. Really? [Sign: He bought it ] Alright, here we go... [Sign: He bought it ] "Which one's got Maeda's real photo in it?" - So I pick one? - Yeah! [Sign: Really serious ] This one! [Sign: Really serious ] Try smelling it. See if it actually smells like rubber bands. At which point!? It's definitely this one! - Kiyoto, make 'em sit. We're getting to the good part.... - Sit down.
- So, what would you like on top of that? - Maeda is aiming to surprise them! One more photograph? One more real photograph! And next! If you can read this... "Whoo-o could it be?" Huh? Is it Maeda Atsuko? That's your dream coming true! [Sign: Dream come true ] Nice to meet you! [Sign: Dream come true ] - This is sick! - Is this for real? Worked to perfection... Ask them who's their favorite among the AKB48? Who do you like in AKB48? Maeda Atsuko. I'm glad! Thank you! [Sign: Maeda's his favorite ] - What about Endo's favorite? - Maeda Atsuko. [Sign: Maeda's his favorite ] - And Tojima? - Atsuko. You're popular! [Sign: Maeda's his favorite ] OK, let's go. - Hello from us, too. - Hello. Huh? Is this for real? - This is AKB48. - Nice to meet you! Wasn't Kiyoto sitting here from the start?
Did you recognize Kiyoto from the start? When we saw his face, yeah. - I actually recognized Tobashi from his face, too. - Like hell you did! Why did you decide to apply for this time? Didn't you throw a similar surprise live concert the last time? We wanted to have a similar thing for ourselves. Since were throwing a surprise live concert here, can you make sure to just keep it as our secret? So it remains a surprise. Pleased to meet you. We'll see you later! Which meant that their first surprise plan was a success! However! The real deal begins now! At the gymnasium where the surprise concert takes place, the people have gathered in crowds to watch a dance contest. All the students from the school, parents and relatives tally up to over 600 people! What do the members think, looking at it? - Sheesh, that's a lot of people! - This isn't just the students, is it? - There are parents, too. - I'm really nervous! So there may be many people who don't know you at all. So Maeda, do you still think we can pull this off successfully?
Since Tobashi went through so much trouble to invite us here, we should do our best to get them excited. If they treat us with yells when we come out, I'm happy. There's a big chance they'll just go "Who are they?" So this one comes down to skill now. Do your best out there. Let's go there pepped up! Alright! Finally we're reaching the moment of truth! But in the assembly hall the girls are heading... ...is a completely different situation as in their usual safe theater. The gymnasium is also filled with people who are not AKB48 fans. Whether or not they can pull this off, now we'll find out the true value of AKB48! Just before the performance.... The real show starts now. Ok, let's do one last psych up. Let's go... O! Now to the gymnasium! Will the students welcome them!? There's propably only a few people who know us. I think this is the time to show what we got. We'll do our best. I'm nervous, but I'll think it'll be fun. The 3 volunteers from the 2nd class in the 2nd year want to address you right now.
Here we go... here we go! Finally the moment of the performances announcement... We welcome you to the Ishikawa Highschool's 95th anniversary. For this this 95th school's birthday, as a congratulation, ... ... we've asked some wonderful surprise guests to come from Tokyo. Please make your entrance!
