I: But I have not a few things to ask you. For, speaking about this one year, YUIMETAL, who had always been with you as a twin, has come to leave the group.
I: It must be a big event that shook the very foundations of who you are in this group, what kind of things were you thinking around that time?
Moa: Facing her leave was a trigger to think over "What on earth BABYMETAL is at all?" In my mind, three of us all were essential to BABYMETAL, and in case any one of the three is gone it's not BABYMETAL anymore. On the other hand, I didn't want her bound to BABYMETAL. You know, everybody has a dream, so each one of us must pursue her own dream. And BABYMETAL now is also a result of chasing dreams of its own. I thought deeply that each opinion must be put on weight. Also about my standpoint in BABYMETAL, or how I have to be in it, that I kept considering quite every day. Though thinking about it doesn't always lead to a conclusion, I often had a chance to notice something during the show.
Moa: The most memorable moment for me was, you see, the first day of the U.S. tour. We did a show in Kansas City. That was the first time I got scared to be on stage. Usually, even if I'm feeling nervous, once I go on stage that turns to be fun. Before that, I'd never felt scared during a performance. I felt both regret and apology for showing the audience other than what they expected. And, another side of their constant affection for us, I never imagined their hatred to us but had an impression as if so. That scared me the most. I believe that'll be my first but last experience.
