Waratte Iitomo! It has ended! For one last time, I was glued to the television all day, all night, laughing, crying and being lost in thought.
The first time I was allowed to appear(on the show), “Studio Alta is really small!” was what I thought. The first time I got a telephone call, we were at the set of Ikemen Paradise(Hana Kimi); it was 1 am and the entire cast and the extras together shouted, “Iitomo Number One”!
Even now when Iitomo is on, I feel very nervous(maybe excited?). During Hachikuro’s time(when he came to promote Hachikuro), after I left, Shingo-kun got Takemoto’s costume with him to our set and presented it to me. (this could be totally wrong, any shingo-toma shippers, please don’t kill me if i got this wrong).
The time when Ryuusei became a regular on Iitomo, I was extremely happy! Moreover, his first appearance was on 7th October 2011; which was my 27th birthday. That year was also the first time I appeared on Iitomo along with my brother. The following day, an article with 3 shots of Tamori-san, Ryuusei and me appeared in the newspaper.
Tamori-san accompanied Ryuusei to Soba Mugiya-san and a few days ago, both brothers went- although it was mysterious, thank you for meeting!(lol)
Even though there are not a lot of strong memories, somehow I could recall various things at once. A great program has come to an end. Even if for a little while, I was happy to be able to come on this show. Tamori-san, thank you for working hard for 32 years. Thank you! Waratte Iitomo!(It’s okay to laugh!)
