(Excerpt from Team K Trio’s interview in AKB Monthly News: May Issue)
Yuko: She’s very competent.
Sayaka: Budokan Concert’s ‘Cross’ was really well-performed. But initially, Yuko was supposed to be the center of this song right.
Yuko: That’s because I said, “Please let Sayanee be the center instead”. I already have ‘Gingham Check’ and ‘Hebirote (Heavy Rotation)’. Also, with this lineup, wouldn’t it be weird if I stood in the middle. Besides, I hope that Sayanee can receive stimuli from being followed tightly by me and Takamina.
