To Yuihan, wait, captain,
Congratulations on your 21st birthday.
It is my honour to write a letter for you.
I’m sure you’ll be really happy so try not to cry too much.
We met each other 3 years ago.
We are of different group, age and generations.
If I were to think about how we can become such good friends,
it would be all thanks to Yui holding a concurrency post in NMB48.
When your concurrency was announced,
I’m part of AKB48 senbatsu member so we often talked a lot.
There’s surprisingly quite a number of NMB48 members that is shy around strangers,
so I’m a little worried when I knew about the concurrency.
However, Yui immediately went to our dressing room and politely greet us as soon as your concurrency was announced.
And you’re always concern yourself about NMB48 and her members.
The NMB48 tour that we did together show us the stoic, hard working and reliable Yui.
That made us look up to Yui with respect.
On top of that, Yui was incredibly friendly and natural around us,
we warm up to each other in on time.
As such, when Yui was named the next captain by Shinoda-san,
I feel proud and fraught with great emotion.
Yui’s concurrency proved significant when Miorin’s concurrency was announced, I didn’t feely any worries at all.
Thank you very much.
Recently when it was announced that NMB48 will appear on Kohaku as a single group,
I was happy and crying,
you came to my side teasingly said “You’re crying” while handing me tissues.
But then Yui cried after me and I thought “You’re crying too”.
It was really funny and I’m really happy about it.
The Yui who is really earnest,
the you who is really passionate,
the you who is quick to point out any small mistakes,
the you whose laughter is really high pitch,
the you who instantly response to my invitation to lunch,
the you who call out to me when I was troubled,
the you who sent me concerned mails when I was ill,
the you who is really kind,
these are all the things that I really like about you.
I’m really glad to meet you.
If I say anything more and you will tease me by saying “You’re cheesy” like you always do,
so I’ll end it here. (LOL)
Once again congratulations on your birthday.
p/s: We still haven’t fulfil our promise to watch baseball and go to Disneyland together, so please make schedule for that.
From your partner in Yokoyamamoto
