Gokujou Smile (I-1 Club ver.) (極上スマイル (I-1club ver.) Gokujou Sumairu (I-1 Club ver.)?, First-Rate Smile (I-1 Club ver.)) is an original song officially released under the I-1 Club. This version made its appearance in the original TV anime.

The I-1 Club version is sung by all members pre-center battle.

Appearances Edit

Wake Up, Girls! (2014 TV Anime) Edit

The first teaser to the song being sung by I-1 Club is at the end of Episode 10, coincendentally the episode where Wake Up, Girls! sang the song first. I-1 also know about this and subsequently tensions emerge from it. An animated section of the first verse is shown in the next episode during a tech rehearsal at the 2014 Idol Festival. Additionally, another (audio-less) snippet is shown during Mayu Shimada's monologue as the episode begins nearing to a close.

Live Appearances Edit

Unlike the original Wake Up, Girls! version, the I-1 Club version of Gokujou Smile has only shown itself a couple of times during lives. Additionally, it has never been sung completely solo by the I-1 Club voice/stage actresses. At the end of the 2014, 2016 and 2017 Festas, I-1 Club sang the song alongside WUG and additionally, during the encore for the Aoba Stage Play, the stage actresses (and Yuka Ootsubo) for I-1 sung alongside their corresponding WUG members.

Releases Edit

The I-1 Club version made its appearance as the A-Side of the single 'Gokujou Smile' which was coupled with the B-Side 'Jera'. This is possibly to align with the anime plot-line which details only I-1 Club getting a single release for the song.

LyricsEdit

Smile! A first-rate smile!

Using schedule written in the clouds
To fill up a somewhat lonely weekend
This isn't right

In the really boring normal days,
I took videos of my cat
How about sometimes rearranging my room?

Sliding through everyone's pictures
They were full of smiles, nothing but smiles
Let's dance, smile, smile
It made me laugh, and I cheered up
I won't give up no matter the season

I've experienced tiring seasons
So I love these unchanging smiles
Overwrite the smiles of Japan
Even in the toughest times
Let the smiles of Japan to be cuter
As the cherry blossoms bloom
I've experienced tiring seasons, so
My smile is a first-rate smile

It's a nice day so let's go out
Let's take a train ride to go far away
Go to the countryside and get some great vegetables

Even things you don't like to eat
If you pretend that they're delicious you'll come to like them
You'll think "Wow, I'm sorry I didn't know about you until now!"

The sea is wide and the mountains are incredible
Made in Japan is the best, it's my my my star
Japan can make anything
Come to play, come to visit
In this country of chopsticks from this end to that end

I've experienced tired seasons
So I'll show you an unchanging smile
The smiles of Japan overwrite
Even the kind of tough times
The smile sof Japan are hospitable
Like the colors of the bloomed cherry blossoms
I've experience tiring seasons, so
My smile is a first-rate smile

Don't worry I've experienced tears
So I love unchanging smiles
The "Don't worry" smiles overwrite
Even in the toughest times
Let the "Don't worry" smiles to be cuter
As the cherry blossoms bloom
Don't worry I've experienced tears, so
My smile is a first-rate smile!

笑顔!極上!スマイル!

クラウドに書かれたスケジュール
なんだか淋しい週末を
なんでもいいから埋めるっていうのはちがう

ほんと地味なの普通の日は
動画で猫をうつしてたり
どうでしょたまには部屋の模様がえなんかね

みんなの写真 スライドして見た
スマイルいっぱいで全開で スマイルだらけで
スマイル‥スマイル‥まいる

笑ってしまう 元気になったよ
あきらめない 春 夏 秋 冬の日も


シンドイ季節を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を愛でる
ニッポンの笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ニッポンの笑顔がかわいくする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
シンドイ季節を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル

天気がいい日はでかけよう
電車に乗ってちょっと遠出しよう
田園風景 すてきな野菜もとれる

ちょっぴり苦手なものだって
おいしいのたべたら好きになる
オイオイ今まで知らないでごめんと思う

海は広い 山もすごい
メイド・イン・ジャパンは最高さ マイマイマイスター
なんだってうみだせる

遊びに来て 会いにきてね
この端から端まで お箸の国ヘ


シンドイ季節を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を見せる
ニッポンの笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ニッポンの笑顔がもてなしする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
シンドイ季節を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル

ドンマイ 涙を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を愛でる
ドンマイな笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ドンマイな笑顔がかわいくする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
ドンマイ 涙を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル
