This performance was originally going to be Sashihara’s final performance with AKB48 before her move to HKT48. However, since it was also Matsubara Natsumi’s birthday performance, they postponed Sashihara’s final performance to sometime in July.
In the beginning, Sashihara apologized to the audience for her latest scandal and participated in the performance thereafter. However, during the group’s 11th song “AI WO KURE” (Give me love), Sashihara began to hyperventilate. She was absent during the 12th song “Matenrou no Kyori” and finally returned during the MC portion after that.
The fans voiced their concerns about Sashihara’s health, but she later participated in a high five event with the fans after the performance; relieving them of their worries.
