    I have been thinking this for a while now, but I gotta say I love how Mirii is probably one of the few, if not the only 2nd gen member to feel no self-restrain when approaching her 1st gen seniors, interacting with them as equals while at the same time knowing how to keep it respectful and cordial. And what's more, it's evident the seniors even willingly reciprocate those feelings. I noticed this most notably whenever she associates with Ogiyuka: it looks like she has put Miri under her protective wing already, those who follow Ogiyuka on Twitter will certainly understand. No doubt this extroverted personality was a factor that played in her favor.
    Usually there's always an invisible wall dividing any group internally, along seniority and generation lines, and the same is true for NGT too. It takes time for the newly-arrived members to even get over the initial timidity, let alone earn the confidence of your seniors and befriend them. But in Mirii's case, it's impressive how she managed to pull off all of this effortlessly soon after joining the group, being aware that there exists a division of sorts but acting as if there are no barriers to prevent her from trying.

    I guess it's as good a timing as any to also bring up this dialogue taken from the 2018.08.01 episode of the radio show Minna Kami-Taiou, not long ago, in which Ogiyuka talked exactly about that during the mail corner:
    https://streamable.com/du8c1 (video backup)

    Ogiyuka: "We received this one from someone whose radio pen-name is NiigataDaisuki-san, Niigata prefecture. (reading the letter) «Good evening, everyone! There's one thing I wanted to ask you: who's a kouhai you have become friends with lately...?»"
    ...
    [Segment from 00:50 onwards]
    Katomina: "What about Ogi...?"
    Ogiyuka: "As for me, lately I have become good friends with the 2nd generation member Yamazaki Mirii."
    Katomina: "Uwaah! She really has some great communication skills, and she's so amusing to be with! ...Terrific!"
    Ogiyuka: "True, true. She keeps contacting me all the time, as in «Ogino-san, let's go together to Mikazuki Italian!». (everyone laughs) Truth be told, today too we had plans to go there, so I needed to adjust my schedule for it. Even the other day we had arranged to go there, and even then I had to reserve time for it into my schedule. So, what I am saying is that the who~le time up to this day I have been setting up plans in my schedule to go to Mikazuki Italian."
    Katomina: "Admirable..."
    Ogiyuka: "She's so amazing. To have a kouhai speaking up to me in such a casual manner, Mirii was the first to ever do so. It makes me extremely happy."
    Katomina: "Definitely. To turn to a Senbatsu member such as Ogino and acting so casual..."
    Ogiyuka: "No, no. It's not just that. I mean, seriously, even when she addresses any of the 1st generation members she is like «Heeeey!». When she met me for the first time, even at the beginning she was going around like «Heeey! Suuup?», until she bumped heads with me accidentally."
    Katomina: "Eeeh?"
    Ogiyuka: "By the second time we met, it was like «Aren't you Ogiyuka-san? By all means, let's take a photo together, just one shot. Waaait, say cheese...». All of a sudden, as soon as we met there. What an amusing girl she is, seriously."
    Katomina: "Truly funny."
    Ogiyuka: "Feels like a classier version of Yamada Noe."
    (Katomina and Ayanyan start laughing)
    Katomina: "For real, a classy version..."
    ...

    Also, recently what caught my attention was this Showroom stream of Mofu dropping by at her house and preparing a bowl of egg-on-rice to eat together, with Mofu even bringing along a egg-beating machine still in the box for this purpose only. Pretty exemplary, not to mention funny to watch for various reasons: from Mofu telling Mirii there's a certain something she "always wanted to do with someone", only for Mirii to open her eyes and find out (with such a well-performed reaction) that the surprise in the bag was in fact the egg-beater. To all the troubles they go through to unscrew it, insert the battery and assemble the thing back. ( ´∀`)


    My favorite highlight:
    Mofu: (while finally having some rice at around 41:30) "Do you know what the best condiment is?"
    Mirii: "Soy sauce...?"
    Mofu: "Wrong! It's our hard work!"
    Mirii: "Ah, that one?"
    Mofu: "Exactly. When we dealt with those screws and worked so hard on it... Do you remember about that time?"
    Mirii: "It was 25 minutes ago."
    Mofu: "Makes you cry."

    Mirii was my favourite 2nd gen since the showroom days (funny thing I always thought she looked a little like Haruppi and now both announce within hours of each other)

    In one sense I'm sad that Mirii is graduating but in another sense NGT is such a disaster zone that she's probably better off leaving. I wouldn't be surprised to see her turn up elsewhere in the entertainment world in the future.

    Here's my translation of the announcement:

    Notice NGT48 Kenkyuusei - Yamazaki Mirii - Information on Withdrawl from Activities
    2019.06.04

    At this time, we are reporting that we have received, and accepted, a request from NGT48 kenkyuusei Yamazaki Mirii to withdraw from activities.
    Yamazaki's activities will end by June 12th (Wednesday).

    We will post her comments below.


    I, Yamazaki Mirii, have decided to end my activities with NGT48.
    I apologize that this isn't happy news.

    Really, truly, I loved having fun with all of the fans at handshakes, performances, and events.
    I am sincerely grateful to you for giving me courage, support, and accompanying me day after dream-like day.

    I am also grateful to my senpais, who have always been kind to me. I was exceedingly happy when they laughed at my silly stories, discussed things with me, and when went out places together with me.

    And now, some thanks for all of the kenkyuusei
    I never could resist smiling during all the time we spent together.
    Together overcoming anything, all that special scenery that we saw with each other, I truly am a fortunate person.
    I felt that I wanted to keep on laughing with everyone even after this, but after thinking about my future, and as a result of talking things over with my family, I decided that I will walk a different path.

    Cherishing what I learned from all the fans, from my senpais, from my fellow kenkyuusei, from the staff, and through my NGT48 activities, I plan to live on in my own way.

    My final day of activities is exactly one year from when I had the privilege of my kenkyuusei debut, June 12.
    Up until the end I will do my very best as an NGT48 member.
    Thank you very much.


    That's it.

    There's only a short amount of time left now, but thank you for continuing to support Yamazaki Mirii.

    I'm heartbroken, even though she was there for only a year I really really really love her and she's genuinely one of my favorite 48G members of all time. I really hope she won't completely disappear after she leaves :(
