Fans of AKB0048 were confused, to say the least. First, something had happened, that caused all activities 00 had planned to be put on hold for an indefinite amount of time. Then rumours had started leaking out that a member had been badly hurt. Then that member had been confirmed to have been Kashita Miyagi, one of 00's powerhouses. People tried to get in touch with the management, the members, Miyabi Honoka being one of their main targets, but her social media wasn't updated, and she kept out of the limelight.
An amateur video (of rather poor quality, but it was understandable because of how chaotic the content was) had been released, and for most people, it was pretty clear. Someone had flatlined, and given the glimpses of other members in the video, it could only be one person.
Then, out of the blue, the management announced that the group would resume activities, albeit at a slower pace to start. Which, was then quickly followed up by the announcement of a new successor of all things. The member in question, was Miyabi Honoka of all people, and because of that, ticket sales were high, even by succession concert standards. Not only for her, but also for Kashita Miyagi's sake, who never got to have that moment for herself.
Now, everyone had gathered at the New Tokyo Dome. As per usual, the members still hadn't met Honoka. They had sent messages, that had been read, but without reply. Hikari assured everyone that Honoka was about as fine as she could be, given the circumstances, and that the purplehaired teen wanted to go forward with the concert - for Miyagi as well.
