breaking news from Kobe!  
Reports are coming in from Kobe today, and I've heard this from several sources now, and since it made me cry, I figured I'd translate it quickly and slap it up here.

Fuma:「Those two have groups where they're the main, and when they come back, how should they be as the main, and what should they do when they're not the main are things that can only be understood by being the main! When all five of us are together, I want to make Sexy Zone a group with no gaps between us! People with complaints can come one by one and say them to my face!」

After Fuma's words, the venue burst into applause.

Dear Fuma, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

[EDIT] Another tweet has come to light by the same person, and since the first tweet has been backed up to me by people who were there, I'll go ahead and translate this one, too.

Fuma:「A little while ago there was a press conference, right? And there was talk of "chance of" or "probability of" there, and things like "aren't they just hiding behind the word 'chance,'" were being said! By the fans! That hurt like crazy. Probability, huh?! I just want each and every one of us five to have a chance to be the center!」

A translator's note about these tweets: the way Fuma is talking in them is not really grammatically correct and reads so sort of emotional and spur of the moment. Sentences and clauses aren't really linked grammatically, as if he was just saying what he was feeling and sort of running it all together. I've heard from friends that his voice was really emotional, too, so it really seems like he's finally been getting to say what he wants to say.

the absolute vehemence in his voice is making me cry even harder. he didn't just say it to have something to say. you can hear that he really meant it ;w;

Yeah, definitely. ;____; I mean. It's just so Fuma that… I know that he really means it. ;__;

I am crying, too. The way he was acting at the Saitama concert had me really worried. He was shutting down, and that's not something I want him to be pushed to again. I'm so glad he's getting to the point that he's speaking out: I was telling my friend that maybe the only way anything will change is if Fuma gets pushed to the point where he bites back. Kento and Shori will go with orders, regardless of their own feelings, but Fuma.. I'm so glad he said this. He said something similar on QRZone recently, too. But not THIS blunt. I'm glad he's trying to pull something out of the situation (those guys can grow from where they are now; not everything is a complete loss) and I'm glad he's sticking up for them. He really is the group's big brother; he cares so much about everyone, that's something that pulled me in with him. Thank you, Fuma. It's been so hard. Hearing you say this affirms everything I thought you were thinking and feeling, and (as if I needed it) reaffirmed why you are such a significant part of my fandom life. I hope there comes a time *cough* when I can say all of this to you. I seriously admire you; how much you've grown and the person you are now.

Thanks for translating this: I totally needed it. I can't even words anymore.

I agree. Fuma is always readable like a book, and after being so terrified for him for most of 2012, I was so afraid after seeing the way he was at the 7/15 presscon and the Saitama concert. But I believed in him being able to do something like this rather than just withdrawing this time, and I'm so glad he probed me right. He loves the group and every single member so much, and he's just gotten so much more mature and more confident and just grown up a lot. But I really feel the same way… I'm so glad that Fuma has finally been able to do what he's always been wanting to do but wasn't mature enough yet. I'm really happy that he's standing up for the group even when Kento and Shori are following orders (not to h8 on them; I know standing up must be scary, but I love Fuma all the more for it).

You're welcome. I'm really glad I was able to share it because I think it's really important. ;___;

I know ;___; I know I know I know. This is perfection. I hope the applause gave Fuma another burst of courage to know he can always stand up for the group and the fans will support him. He's just… amazing.

Fumaaaaaaaaaaaa ;~~~~~~~; Oh bb. I hate that they're having to go through this when they clearly hate it so much. I'm glad he's trying (and finding) times to speak out about it how he wants to, not just the lines the company is making them say.
ミランダ (大丈夫): Hokuto&Fuma: puppy lovefaded_lace on August 7th, 2014 10:40 am (UTC)
Yeah ;; I imagine it takes a lot of courage to speak out against the management, so I'm really, really proud of him.
