Finally got to watch the behind-the-scenes video about the final live.
I wasn't surprised to see them crying before the last live, but I was surprised they were all doing it less than 10 minutes before going on stage.
Sako was happy she wasn't the only one crying (see below) They recovered quickly.
Hamachan said at one point that Sako was crying too much. (Not in a mean way, though. They were laughing about it.)
Sako seemed to cry every time they went through Kobushi no Hana: the last dress rehearsal in the practice space, the dress rehearsal on the stage, and again during the actual final live. It was still sweet that Ayaka patted her on the head each time. Leader until the very end.
I miss them.
We see the other three and know they are staying busy, but I wonder how Minami and Sako are doing.
I think Ayapan mentioned on IG that she was going to visit Sako, but she never posted anything else about it. (I assumed that was the Wada she meant, maybe not.)
And I kind of felt bad for Minami. She seemed all ready to continue college and pursue acting, then suddenly announced that after discussing it with her parents (which I took to mean they told her), they all decided it would be better if she studied abroad, which she couldn't do at that point because of COVID.
