みんなありがとう! やった~ これは新しい章であるしかし確かに終わりではない

Thank you everyone, we’re finally here, we’ve done it! Truly a new chapter in Haruppi’s story, but certainly not the conclusion. This is for everyone out there who saw Haruppi nurture herself into this success, nothing is impossible, keep working towards your goals and press hard for them

Victory! Haruppi is center!

That’s it! We’ve done it. What no one thought we would be able to do. After more than two years of waiting.

Dear Meroppis, Thank you for not giving up when you were put down and made fun of, thank you for making Haruppi’s “struggle” the best thing that could happen to her, we’ve done it when no one thought we would, after two years, a miracle has happened when it looked like the ship has long set sail, Haruppi is sole center of HKT48. This is the greatest moment for HKT, it’s “rightful” center is back. This is just proof to all those out there who think anything is impossible, it’s not. And to all the haters, please keep hating, you’re were just as much help!

The above video is the official announcement of Haruppi’s sole centership, it’s our treasure, we’ve got them to show us the deleted scene of Haruppi’s interview and so many more just so they’d announce her center. A moment where everyone officially and unofficially recognizes her as HKT’s lead. this is something we’ve all waited hard and long for, and it’s made it totally worth it, a victory well earned and deserved. You, the foreign fans look like you’ve made quite the impact as well. A lot of the clips/ideas in the video originated from the video Team Cwush made of Haruppi. Thank you management team. Thank you everyone, it wouldn’t have been done with the smallest and big gestures as well. The book, the election, next year we’re totally aiming for the hugest spot we can get her in senbatsu. Please continue on with us in this road we’ve paved to reassure the management they’ve made the right choice.
