ドキドキ&わくわく成人式でした。
東京のにでるか奈良のにでるか、
成人式じたいにでるものか、
めっちゃ悩んだんやけど、
地元、奈良県の式に出席してきました。
ほんまに心臓に悪いレベルで緊張したよ;
同じく、
新成人のみなさま、おめでとう!
TEAM平成3年ばんざい!






周りのみんなより早めに上京したから、
連絡とってる地元の友達も居ないし、
ちょっぴり不安やったんです。






でも、
ほんまに行って良かった。
6年生のとき仲良かったグループで結局ずっと一緒に居ったなあ。
お世話になった先生たちにも逢えた。
『リナ!久しぶり!あんたTVのときもバリバリ大阪弁で大丈夫なんかいな!一人ういてんで!(ガハハハハ』
的なこと4、5人に言われました。
久々すぎる再会の第一声ソレってどないw
あと、コミュニケーションの中で、
たまーに、『ねっ´`!』
って言う相槌したら、
気持ち悪いとキレられました。←
いや、なんか嬉しかったな。笑
わたし、一生なまり続けます。うん。








SCANDAL のこと知っくれてる人とか、
スキで声かけてきてくれた人とか、
ライブ行ったことある!とか、
めちゃくちゃ居てほんまにビックリしました。予想外でした。
すごく嬉しかった。
コピバンしてるって言ってきてくれた人たちも居たなあ。
そして、
一緒にバンド組まないかと誘われました。
残念ながらごめんなさいしましたけど。
地元の独特のノリに浸って、
心地好い時間がこのままずっと続くんじゃないかって、そんな気分になりました。






式が終わったあとは、
6年1組同窓会がありました。
あの日、ハタチになったら…
約束してたタイムカプセルをあけました。
何を入れたか全く覚えてなかった。
泥まみれの箱をあけるとき、
なんか悪いことしてるような
そんなキモチに似てました。






思い出のBOXには、それぞれの宝物。
未来、成人したの自分へのプレゼントやメッセージがぎっしり入ってました。
色褪せたプリクラ、
100 点のテスト、
ランドセルにぶら下げたぬいぐるみ、
みんなで作った新聞、
校内の好きな場所で撮った写真たち。
どれもこれも微笑ましいものばかり。






わたしは、
自分宛てに書かれたリトルマーメイドの封筒をみつけました。










中身はお気に入りのプリクラや、
好きなキャラクターの切り抜きなどでした。(どんだけニモ好きやってん、自分。)
そして、
封筒をひらいてすぐ目に入る場所に、




『2012 年20才のりなえ
芸能人なってるか?
2004年12才のりなより』




そう書いてありました。
なんて上から目線なんでしょう。






なんか、分からないけど、
すごくすごく涙が込み上げてきました。
幼稚園の頃から、小学校、中学校と、
飽きもせずそのことしか考えてませんでした。
それ意外考えられませんでした。
信じることが何よりも近道やと信じてました。
知らず知らずのうちに夢中でした。














『2004年12才のりなえ
今も変わらず夢中やで。
はやめにドラムに出逢いなさいね。
2012年20才のりなより』

Theme:RINA





My coming of age ceremony was nerve-wracking & exciting.
I was really unsure
Whether to attend one in Tokyo or one in Nara,
And whether to even attend a ceremony at all,
But I ended up attending the ceremony held in my home area of Nara Prefecture.
I was so nervous on a level that was bad for my heart;
Congratulations
To all of my fellow new adults!
TEAM 1991 (third year of the Heisei Era), banzai!






I moved to Tokyo earlier than those I knew,
So I felt a little nervous
Not having any local friends that I could contact.






However,
I'm so glad I went.
When I was in sixth grade, I had a group of friends that I was always together with.
I also got to see my old teachers.
About four or five people said things to me like,
『RINA! It's been forever! I see your Osaka dialect is strong as ever when you're on TVー! You're the only one with it! (Gahahaha)』
Those were the first things people said to me after much-overdue reunion lol
Also, while we were communicating
And I was occasionally doing aizuchi
By going 『Rightっ´`!』,
They got mad at me.←
That kind of made me happy. haha
I'll continue speaking in my accent for the rest of my life. Yep.








I was so surprised at how many people
Know of SCANDAL,
Said that they like us,
And have seen us live! And things like that.
There were more than I expected.
That made me so happy.
There were also people who said they're in cover bands of ours.
Also,
I was invited to join a band.
I had to unfortunately decline, though.
Immersing yourself in the unique excitement of your home area
And having a pleasant time there makes you feel like it'll last forever.






After the ceremony ended,
There was a class reunion for grade 6, class 1.
We opened the time capsule we promised to open
On the day we'd turn 20.
I didn't at all remember what I put in it.
When we opened the mud-covered box,
It kind of felt like
We were doing something bad.






In our box of memories were each of our treasures.
It was full of presents and messages for our future, adult selves.
Faded purikura pictures,
Tests with full marks,
Plushies that hung from our school bags,
Newspapers we made together,
Photos taken at our favorite places on campus.
All of them were of us smiling.






As for me,
I found a Little Mermaid envelope that I had written to myself.



6-1 - 2012-01-09 (RINA) LrRmicW






Inside of it were things like my favorite purikura shots
And cut-outs of my favorite characters. (How much did you like Nemo, past self.)
Also,
When I opened the envelope, the first thing I saw was



『To the 20-year-old Rina in 2012,
Have you become an entertainer?
From the 12-year-old Rina in 2004』




That's what I was written in it.
A little condescending, don't you think?






I don't really know why,
But it really made me tear up.
Since kindergarten, and continuing into elementary and middle school,
I never stopped thinking about that, and that alone.
I couldn't think about anything else.
What I believed was that I believed in a shortcut.
I was unknowingly obsessed.

『To the 12-year-old Rina in 2004,
I'm still obsessed to this day.

This blog is so sweet! I actually teared up a little.
Ever since RINA was little she wanted to be a performer. And now she has become a drummer in a band. This makes me want to really go for my dreams.

Nice, touching post. She's really good at expressing herself.

Rina should never lose that accent, it's a mark of what she is and where she is from. May life be kind to her.

Thanks as usual Jade.

Thanks for the translation of this great post. As a fellow member of Team 1991 (Banzai!), this made me think a bit. Rina has sure accomplished a lot, and it's great that she achieved her 12-year-old self's dream! Best wishes for another awesome 20 years!

Very sweet story. very touching. She achieved her dream.

Rina and SCANDAL are soo loved. Also a great inspiration. Starting a band while in Middle/High school is probably one of the most fun things to do, and they are leading the way as "Japan Number One Girlie Rock Band!"

She also looked very beautiful in her furisode.

like this one

I hope she post loads of more pictures.

btw, are there photos of Haruna, Mami and Tomomi Coming-of-Age dresses?

I've seen them on Facebook before but there isn't a proper photo or should I say there isn't a full photo of Tomo and mami wearing their furisode kimono... There was a pic of haru standing outside somewhere in her kimono
Here found it: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=198204533553914&set=a.197854876922213.44067.110419518999083&type=3&theater

thanks for the Haruna Pic. it's a furisode, dressed for winter, so I'm guessing it was for her seijin shiki.
