Translated by Hypnotikk Timed by korp Quality Assurance by DarkScorpion I wish AKB48 would visit my school. But seriously, what's with the banner above that stage? Go ahead ahead and rewind it. Yeah, just boys. The rest can make sammiches. The cherry blossoms flutter about, a season of goodbyes. This year, with memories in their hearts, the graduates will go on a journey. To help make the event even more memorable, we sent out a call for invitations. And we received 2,130 of them! Which school will they invade this time? Our school is a small one, with only 33 students. Unfortunately, the school will be shutting down this year. Before we graduate, we'd like to have one final fond memory. Will AKB48 please aid us in realizing our finally wish?
Saito Yamato. The school that the members are heading for is Narita Municipal Toyosumi Middle School. [Sign: Narita Municipal Toyosumi Middle School, 33 students, Shutting Down This Year] Closing down this spring, this will be their final graduation ceremony. [Sign: Narita Municipal Toyosumi Middle School, 33 students, Shutting Down This Year] What can be done for the fellow graduates? In order to find out, we're going to see Yamato at the school, but... Yamato has no idea. That we're coming today. I'd really like to his reaction to that. On top of that... By the way, Yamato's favorite member is Maeda. And, what does Maeda have to say? I'd like to set up a kind of romantic meeting. A romantic meeting? And so... Once they arrived at the school, they headed inside without arousing any suspicion. Straight into the staff room, requesting cooperation from the teachers. Could you please work with us here? Sure. Thank you very much. Negotiations done! Now, let's have Yamato experience his most romantic meeting ever!
And the meeting shall be called... The Romantic Meeting Project! Now, let me explain the plan. First, the teacher will make an announcement calling Yamato to the library. The clueless Yamato enters the library. A mysterious student stands there. And when the curious Yamato moves in to have a closer look at the face... It's his dear beloved Maeda! What's Yamato's reaction gonna be?! In order to catch Yamato's reaction, we've six hidden cameras set-up in place. Bad Boys and the other members will be watching from a monitor in another room. It's the ultimate romantic meeting! By the way, Maeda's wearing an earphone. So, if I speak into this mic, she can hear everything. Let's give it a try. Can you hear me, Maeda? If you can hear me, say "Aiin". A miniature "Aiin". What book are you reading? - "Comedian". - A confused idol?
Then, the Bad Boys had a suggestion. Yamato will be there shortly, but... I think he's in for the surprise of his life. When he comes in and asks, "Huh? Why are you...?" Could you approach him and sing "Aitakatta. Kimi ni..." Good idea! It's written on the page two of the "Comedian". Have a look at page two. Let's have the teacher call him out now. [Sign: Execute Plan.] We've an announcement to make. 2nd-year student Saito Yamato, please come to the library immediately. Maeda, he's coming. And then... The clueless, sleepy-faced Yamato appears! He is here! He is here! Maeda, he is here. He is here. He is in the room. His face. Is he smiling? - He realized something. - He's thinking, "This can't be right." He's surprised. - Of course he is. - We going? Are we going? He's right behind you. Huh? Yamato... Yamato...?
He's wondering what to do. He's right beside you. He saw her! He saw her! Now! Now! Aitakatta. Aitakatta. Aitakatta. Yes! Kimi ni... Nice to meet you. This is amazing. - He seems really happy. - He is blushing! - Are you Yamato? - Yes. Nice to meet you, I'm Maeda Atsuko. Nice to meet you. Maeda, ask "Do you like AKB48?" Do you like AKB48? Yes. How cute! Who's your favorite? "Who's your favorite?" Who's your favorite? Maeda Atsuko. - "Who's your second favorite?" - Who's your second favorite? Oshima Yuko. He said it. - "What so good about Oshima Yuko?" - What so good about Oshima Yuko? Huh? I'm not sure. But I'm your number one, right? Yes. What the...? He's so cute! Shall we go? All fired-up, the members head towards Yamato's place.
Hello. Hi. Saito Yamato. What's it like? The real Maeda suddenly appears all of a sudden. It's like a dream. According to Yamato, the other students are preparing for a gathering tomorrow to wish the 3rd-year students farewell. When the members heard that... We'd like to help. - You want to help? - Yes. But is it ok? I think it'll be fine. And so, they head for the gymnasium, where the preparations are going on. Let's do some painting! Let's do it. Let's do it. The current students are preparing for the performance for the graduates tomorrow. There, the members help out with the painting. Here are all 33 students of Toyosumi Middle School. They've all grown up together since pre-school. Because of that, they're like a family. With this graduation, they will part ways and go on their own separate roads. They gave us a lot of advice during club activities and in our daily lives.
We'll miss them dearly. It's like that in school, but even in AKB48, we've had a lot of members graduating. We also dearly miss the graduated girls who we have spent a lot of time with. I hope this will be a success. They wish to show their utmost gratitude to their seniors, who've taken great care of them. In order to fulfill their wishes, the members are painting with their utmost care. This will the last memorable event for the 33 students gathered together. They cannot stop until the work is done. And so... It's finished? It is! Their initial job is done. I think the preparations are all done, so... - Will it be fine tomorrow? - Yes, it is going to be great! Yes! - Kogawa, are you ready? - Ready! Then, Takahashi had a suggestion. I was wondering if there was anything we could do to help tomorrow. When we wish the 3rd-year students farewell, could you please sing us a song? Yes, of course. Will you let us use the stage?
- Really? - Is it alright? What do you guys think? Would you like them to sing? Yes. Then, tomorrow, we'll have a live-performance, by AKB. - Alright! - Let's do it! An abrupt decision, but the surprise live-performance by AKB48 during the graduation ceremony has been decided! Will the graduates like it? The next day... Entering Toyosumi Middle School for the second time, the members are careful not to be seen by other students. And finally, the 3rd-year students assemble in the event hall. The members are watching the events in the hall through a monitor. It's finally the day of the surprise. Shhh...! Do you know what this means? Surprise. We can't let the 3rd-year students know about this. Let's go about this quietly. Moving on, here's the graduation ceremony for the 3rd-year students. The opening speech by the principal's just started. We have a few cameras on location. They're supposed to be from the local cable TV station covering the final days of the school.
In order not to arouse any suspicions, we even have the proper stickers on the cameras. And on their backs too. It stopped there. Huh? Sae? - Sae's not here, right? - No, she's not. Does she understand the meaning of "surprise"? But, the students don't suspect a thing. That's a relief. But is it ok for her to be there? Any sudden movements and people will notice. When is she coming back? Is she coming back? I don't know! She stuck a marker there! We don't need such things! We don't need any markers for the camera! Such markers are used to mark camera locations on filming sets. - So that she won't move? - The markers tell the cameraman to stay in position. - They're looking! - Oh, shit. Oh, shit. Oh, shit! - They're looking at her. - She's acting suspiciously! - They're looking! - He's definitely looking! It's ruined! What should we do if our plans were ruined? Miyazawa! Why the hell did you stick that useless marker? I wanted to make myself useful.
Don't you understand what "surprise" means? You were probably helping out, but... - If they saw you, the plan would be ruined! - Oh, really? Miyazawa, who acted rashly, was totally just running around. But she's not the only fool that's running around. And so, in an original theater production by the 1st-year students. We made this! There's definitely something wrong with that Kuroko. [Note: Kuroko are stagehands who dress in black in order to "blend" with the background]. [Sign: A bad feeling.] [Note: Kuroko are stagehands who dress in black in order to "blend" with the background]. His movements are really weird. And Ono goes... By the way, the guy in black. I saw Takamina in that outfit just a while ago. No way! Don't tell me that the Kuroko is Takahashi! There wasn't a crazy Kuroko like that yesterday, right? Why is she doing this? It's definitely weird! They're looking! - If they find out, what the hell are we supposed to do? - They're laughing. Next, we have an "Air Band" performance by five 2nd year students. The graduates seem really happy. [Sign: Happy ] And then...! Huh? They're going to perform something else. A guy just joined in from the side. With the black mask. [Sign: A bad feeling.]
[Sign: A bad feeling.] They're starting. Who's that? This is bad! Who...? Who's not in here? Who's not in here? Ah! It's Minegishi! It's Minegishi? Such movements, it's unmistakable! It's her! They're looking! They're looking! It's all ruined! Look at this! Everyone looks confused! Hey you! What were you doing!? You're just going crazy by yourself! I really wanted to help out. This is the only thing I could think of. Think of something else, you! And so, the time of the surprise is finally here. We're all here to create a wonderful memory for Toyosumi Middle School. With a special live! From here on, failure is not an option. [Sign: Quickly, they headed for the stage.] [Sign: Quickly, they headed for the stage.] Finally, it's AKB48's turn. I'm nervous. Yamato makes an announcement. Since we were kids...
We were like brothers and sisters, with our seniors looking after us... We wish to express our utmost gratitude. We have another present for you. Without further ado... [Sign: Joy] Hello. We're AKB48. As a request from 2nd-year student Saito Yamato, AKB48 are here for the last batch of graduates of Toyosumi Middle School.

Absolutely surprised. Absolutely surprised? Happy. - I'm happy as well. - Happy? That's good. Ogawa said she will miss you all. After separating from all of you. Right? Yes. Is there anything you'd like to say to the 3rd-year students? Thank you for taking care of us. All their memories together resurface, [Sign: Her emotions spill out.] and her emotions spill out. With this, it's finally time to part. The graduates plant a cherry-blossom tree in the school for remembrance. So that they may return when the cherry-blossoms bloom. Coming up next!
