The 2015 Senbatsu Sousenkyo.

Tanaka Miku was not good enough..

I'm honestly really, really frustrated.

This year, the whole time I did everything with the thought of definitely repaying everyone and finally ranking in.

The people that voted for me must be feeling discontent now too, right.

I'm really disappointed that I couldn't live up to everyone's expectations...

I know everyone tried their best. I too wanted to evolve beyond that of a mascot type of character, so I had hoped for this to be a fresh chance to pay back everyone.

I know that if I apologize now, everyone will also be saying sorry in the comments too, but I don't want that! I think we're one in body and soul, so there's no need to apologize!

Our thoughts are the same.

We're dissatisfied..

I wanted to beam the biggest smile with everyone...

But, I will face this reality, and within this year I will make sure to grow, get my name out there and if there is a sousenkyo again next year, I will definitely announce my candidacy again.

Changing the mood, from tomorrow on I will once again climb the stairs in a Tanaka Miku-like way, smiling while making good use of every day,

Having said all that, this year the number of votes for the sousenkyo were even greater than last year's, so it was a high wall. Going over 13000 is incredible (´・_・`)

But, but, even though my name wasn't called they weren't wasted votes!!! They couldn't be, when each vote had love in it!

Those who voted for me

thank you very, very much.

I don't want anyone that voted for Tanaka Miku to feel like it was useless, so please watch me closely for another year.
