TV Asahi aired a special program yesterday “Summer Premium Music Festival ~ a Dream Collaboration”, which featured AKB48 Watanabe Mayu gracing the stage together with former top stars from the Takarazuka Troupe(an all-female theater group).
Watanabe has been known to be an ardent fan of them and is often seen mimic-ing their signature moves on TV. “I’m so happy to have worked hard so far. Once again i realise that happy things await as long as i work hard. It’s like a dream and i can’t express myself further!”
Together, Watanabe Mayu and Takarazuka Troupe performed songs like “Sumire no Hana Saku Goro”(a song iconic of the Takarazuka group), “All that Jazz”(a song from their upcoming musical Chicago), and AKB48’s “Flying Get”.
Below is Watanabe’s reaction when she was informed about the chance to collaborate with her idols.
“Me? No way!”
“Their existence is like gods to me!”

Congrats Mayuyu! Couldn’t be happier to see her getting all these bonuses after becoming No.1..And my fav scene from the collaboration?
