Masuda Takahisa no Live
He wrote about how there were lots of cheers and thanked Shizuoka and Fukuoka for the great time. He always gets uncertain on whether they manage to satisfy everyone with their performances but always do their best to make it an enjoyable one.
He’s very happy to see everyone and everyone’s really cute and precious. When they have to do 3 performances, he can’t help but go a little hoarse or go low on oxygen by the third one. He apologised if he shows the unglamorous side, but will do his best, with feelings stronger than anyone else.
He also mentioned going out for a meal with the juniors - Inaba, Kento and Nozawa.
At the end, he put in a request to fans going for the upcoming concerts. While some fans may not buy the official penlight because of various reasons like not managing to or not liking it, he hopes they would cooperate and switch their own penlights off when they see the official ones going off during the concert. There are some performances when they control and make the penlights go off so everyone can concentrate on the songs and dances. That’s part of the production for those particular segments. He hopes everyone would understand and forgive this request from this little heart. (probably referring to the lyrics from Chicken Boy here - “chiisana heart”)
He’ll do his best to make the entire nation happy.
