I'm impressed to be able to receive this best award on the best stage with the best members, while getting the support from the best fans. We will make sure to do our best in return for the fans' support with a united effort, so please continue to support us."
When Ueto Aya who served as the host, and the wife of HIRO, asked ATSUSHI who he would want to tell about this first, ATSUSHI answered with a smile, "Of course, to my parents. Also, I'm really glad to be able to grace HIRO-san." which brought a smile on Ueto as well.
