Appearing out of uniform during the first MC they greeting the huge roar from the audience with "its been a long time!"
Nozomi Tsuji together on stage with everyone for the first time in a long time, "I was choked-up and my heart was pounding like it was my first time." Maki Goto commented she was a bit nervous before hand but added "we’re on stage in our casual clothes and I was very excited."
Mari Yaguchi was impressed with the audience response when they were first introduced and teased, "What is it with these two on stage, that’s incredible! A louder response than all nine of us can get." Kaori Iida commented, "its been a long time, I wonder why no discomfort."
Maki Goto will be busy with a single release and concert through the end of the year when she plans to go on hiatus with no stated return date. Nozomi Tsuji has been on hiatus from entertainment activities due to maternity leave since 2007 but Yaguchi commented, "I do think that you could go back to work next year by a little," she then turned to the audience and said "please support these two in all their future activities!" The concert hall was again filled with applause.
