On the 17th August, SKE48 Matsui Rena held a thanksgiving festival at Saitama Super Arena, with 5000 fans in attendance. Tickets were all given out 30mins before the event and staff scrambled to arrange message boards and exhibits for the rest of the fans who could not enter.
During the event, Rena gave out message cards bearing her heartfelt thanks to the fans. The music playing in the background was also chosen by DJ Rena.
When all the message cards were given out, Rena said to the remaining fans “I hope that my feelings of gratitude have been relayed and i wish to see you all again.” Fans responded with “Thank you Rena chan”.
With 14 days left to go, Rena’s graduation live will be on the 29th and 30th August in Toyota Stadium.
SKE48 members write a Kanji word to describe Rena.
Matsui Jurina – Sun
Takayanagi Akane – Love
Tani Marika – Benefactor
I’d always thought Rena looks best in Yukata.
5000 fans in attendance.. how long does it take for all of them to get their cards?
