Stage greeting(summary) by Yuina Mita April 3rd 2021
Hello everybody. I’m Yuina Mita, the general director of “O-VILS.” (formerly “GrooMe!”). Thank you to everyone who came to the event today or watched the streaming online, for taking the time for us. I’m not good at talking, but I would like to share with you the reason why I decided to form this team.
I’ve always wanted to create a world-class entertainment team. I thought that the participation of graduates of Kyoto Tachibana HS would be indispensable for that absolutely. However, I was still worried about the hierarchical relationship in high school, the perspectives of seniors and the perspectives of juniors even after graduating. In addition, there was the issue of financing to run the group. Therefore, with such problems, I have repeatedly given up and repeatedly challenged myself many times.
When we were in high school, we, the seniors, the juniors, and the same grades, created the best music together and played it together. I’ve always wanted to play music more and more with those friends even after graduating. I wanted to do something with all the graduates that high school students couldn’t do.
I couldn’t give up doing that. When I reviewed my music activities around last summer, I thought now is the only time to challenge.
Then, after worrying many times, I consulted with Mr.Yokoyama.The teacher said in one reply, “Well, I don’t know if I can help you , but I’ll do anything”. The words pushed my back strongly, and I was able to have a fulfilling day to this day.
When I tried it, there were many difficult things.That made me understand a little about the fact that parents and advisor teachers have put a lot of time into it for us when I was a high school student.
For about half a year, I had to spend more time on “O-VILS.” than I expected, and above all, it caused a lot of trouble for the members here. Sometimes I thought it would have been better to give consideration to everyone from the perspective of each member. Sometimes I wondered if it was right to create a new team.
It’s very difficult to create 1 from 0, and even if I could do it, it would bother someone. But if I don’t think about creating this team, I won’t make anyone cry or bother anyone …During this time, I continued to practice the performance while spending days thinking about such things. And recently I feel that the wall of my mind with the members has finally melted little by little. I’m very happy to hear the voices of the members saying that the practice is fun.
Of course, when I stand here today, there are things I couldn’t do, and I have a lot of regrets that I should have done this, but I’m really glad to come here with this member. And above all, I’m really grateful to the members here for dealing with such an unprecedented challenge, and I feel irresponsible if I say happiness in one word,but I’m really glad. I feel the responsibility to grow this team as “O-VILS.”, and I will do my best for that.
