Hata Sawako’s Blog Entry: Graduation Announcement
Good evening, this is Hata Sawako.
Today, during the Team K2 「Ramune no Nomi Kata」performance, I announced that I would graduate SKE48 at the end of this month.
I have been in discussion regarding my graduation since February, but I had been unable to make my mind up easily, and the result had been an announcement so close to the actual date. I am truly sorry.
There was not a specific occurrence that had led me to make this decision, but looking back I feel that there was a part of me that had started to make this decision, looking back on it now I think that was what happened. I knew that I would have to graduate sometime.
However before this I thought that I would join an agency through being in SKE, however, thankfully SKE had given me an opportunity to work with my voice, and through this I found out about my inability, the truth that my talents at the moment were insufficient to succeed as a voice actress. I understood that if I carry on at this level, I would have to say good bye to everyone for good sometime. Of course I believe that someone does have the talent to become a voice actress in SKE48, and some members will be able to spread their wings as a voice actress in the future.
However I could not become that girl. It was my own fault. So in place of the talent that I do not have, I would like to being my studies from one, and begin my road towards becoming a voice actress once again. Even if a period of hiatus does happen, until everyone becomes tired of me, I would like to stay by everybody’s side. That was my second resolution I had made having entered SKE.
The first thing had been when I was out into Team K2, I think some may have noticed but at the same period as that, I had been going to the dentist to have braces put in my teeth. I had been worrying about putting in braces, as it had nothing to do with my voice acting career, and because of the inability to speak properly with braces in, I had become very worried. I had then made the decision to commit to SKE. After that, the braces were put in place, and I had begun to not be able to speak as I had been able to before.
My tongue and the inside of my mouth started to become cut, and being at the hand shake events with blood in my mouth, has now become a good memory of the past, but it was ironically the same period in which my 0048 career was decided. I loved 0048 very much, but for me it had been a painful time as well. Having heard it for myself, I fully recognised that I had not been able to speak properly, and I had been very frustrated with myself. Above all, I felt remorseful towards the anime, and to Suzuko-chan. I always thought to her that I was sorry that I had to play her voice.
I had not been able to stand on the start line to grow as a voice actress. The braces that I had regretted putting on so many times, is now about to come off. Is this a consequence, I think. I might be able to stand on the start line, after so many years. Having said this, I don’t know what will happen unless the race begins. But I would like to return as someone that does not feel ashamed to Suzuko-chan, that had stuck with me for so long.
I had said this during the time of the announcement but for me SKE was not a place where I would fulfil my dream, but where I would be able to begin walking this journey towards my dream. I believe that I have crossed that bridge and it is time for me to start the journey on my own.
To those whom had continued to support me, thank you very much. My treasure of being in SKE had been that I was able to meet all of you. I would like to become a kind of person for people to be able to say ‘welcome back’.
Please continue your support for me, although the days are limited, to the end of March.
Ahh, it’s hard to write my emotions. But I believe it has been such days that I am able to have all these emotions, and make this decision.
