Morning Musume。 ’17 no Morning Jogakuin ~Houkago Meeting~ #257 (2017.03.11)

By | May 27, 2017

Oda-chan: What day is it today?
Iikubo: What day? Um, a normal day, heading into spring?
Oda-chan: Stop kidding around.
Fuku-chan: A day when spring makes an eager start?
Iikubo: Graduation season?

The bantering goes on for a while until Oda-chan reminds them that it’s her 18th birthday.

Iikubo: You’re still 18!?
Fuku-chan: You’re already 18!?
Iikubo: Don’t you have too much presence for an 18 year old? (laughs)
Oda-chan: You know, I’ve been called a thirty-six year old ever since I was fourteen.

Oda joined Morning when she was thirteen, so it’s been five years – quite some time.

Opening Question
A word to the 13ki, and if you want to push it, to Oda-chan.

Fuku-chan: You’re all unique, aren’t you?

Fuku-chan suspects that the fans are familiar with Oda-chan’s uniqueness. For Kaga-chan, Fuku-chan finds it difficult to respond to her words. And while Yokoyama-chan looks quiet, she’s actually pretty aggressive. And then there’s how the 13ki interact: things’ll start with Kaedy teasing Yokoyama-chan, and Yokoyama-chan will come back at Kaedy with just as much force.

Iikubo: It’s sometimes hard to get involved with you. Probably because of that uniqueness that Fuku-chan pointed out.

Iikubo doesn’t know how to respond to them sometimes as well. Iikubo recounted an incident with Kaga-chan where Kaga-chan asked for shounen manga and anime recommendations. However, whenever Iikubo suggested something, Kaga-chan would say that she was familiar with the recommendation. Unfortunately, Iikubo couldn’t figure out whether Kaga was familiar with them in that she had already gone watched or read the suggestions, or was just familiar with their names.

Oda-chan: 13ki really are like a married couple, aren’t they? As for myself, I should become more efficient, right?

Watching the relationship between Reina-chan and Kaedy from the very start, Oda-chan can only see them as a married couple. A slim girl with short hair paired with a short girl with medium-long hair – Oda-chan likes that. And when she looks back on their relationship, when Kaedy teases Reina-chan, Yokoyama will responds with something or the other. The way Kaedy follows up, it’s like she’s apologising for her wife. Oda-chan does like the Renady pair.

Fuku-chan: Renady… That sounds nice, Renady…
Iikubo: Renady, huh?
Oda-chan: Doesn’t it sound like some sort of legendary Pokemon? (laughs)
Fuku-chan: Like Celebi. (laughs)

FIVE STARS Niigaki Risa & Kamei Eri #55 (2010.04.19)

Fan mail #1: “Gaki-san, Kame-chan, good evening!” The first fan mail points out how fun all of the listeners’ radio names can be. Thus, he asks for the hosts to think of their own radio names.

Kame comes up with her radio name in mere seconds: “Jeoneun” (Korean for “I“). It’s a word she really likes. Some other Korean suggestions they come up with include “Naengmyeon” and “Halmeoni” (“Grandma“). Ultimately, though, Gaki-san decides on “Short Gaki” which is a nickname she came up with in Hawaii. Kame nearly chooses “Chotto Eri” (“A Little Bit Eri“) before finally settling on “Mou Eri” (“Eri Already“).

Gaki-san: five-nk@interfm.jp
Kame: Pencil sharpeners…
Gaki-san: five-nk@interfm.jp
Kame: …really are amazing, aren’t they?
Gaki-san: While I have no idea what Kamei-san is going on about, let us blow away the awkward atmosphere in the room with this song.

Nakajima Saki no °C-ute na Jikan #249 (2016.10.22) (guests: Kanazawa Tomoko & Miyamoto Karin)

Message from Iikubo from preceding MoJo: ‘Nakajima-san, we’ve always been talking about going to Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, but since I went there the other day for a show, let’s think about somewhere else we can go.’

Nacky: Well, if it was for work, it can’t be helped. I wonder if she gave the otters a high five?

Their actual goal was to go to Hakkeijima Sea Paradise and give the otters a high five, so it’s still an option if Iikubo didn’t get to try that out. As for an alternative, Nacky enjoys Enoshima Aquarium, though it’s a bit out of the way.

Introductions done, Nacky introduces her guests for this week: Kanazawa Tomoko and Miyamoto Karin. Nacky chose the two of them to come on her show because of the following reason: During the summer Hello! Cons, Nacky was attempting to overcome her discomfort with kouhai by taking photos with them. KanaTomo and Karin-chan were among the members she didn’t manage to take photos with. Morning Musume。´16’s Ikuta Erina was another kouhai she missed taking a photo with as well.

Country Girls no Tadaima Radio Housouchuu!! #101 (2017.03.13)

By | March 26, 2017

Carrying over from the AS1422 that aired immediately prior to this show, Yanagawa Nanami answers Katsuta Rina’s question: Mention three good things about her Kenshuusei generation-mate, Kasahara Momona.

First: The huge contrast between Kasahara’s looks and when Yanamin talks with her. Despite looking more mature than Yanamin, Kassa’s actually two academic years lower. But when Yanamin speaks with her, she finds that Kasahara still has a kind of cute childishness to her.

Second: She’s strange. Her unique way of thinking impresses Yanamin sometimes.

Third: Her atmosphere. She brings out this warm, airy atmosphere that soothes those around her. Yanamin enjoys and treasures the times that she spends with Kassa.

Fan mail #1: “Eririiiiiiin!!! It is now springtime. Please do an impression of a nightingale.

Song: Morning Musume – Genki Pikappika!

Fan mail #2: Morning Musume held a fanclub tour in Hawaii last month, and the listener wishes to know all about it!

Hawaii sure was fun,” the hosts agree. Gaki-san explains: “the atmosphere in Hawaii… it’s like, the fans all go back to being young boys and girls.” Something Kame found memorable about the tour was how (physically) close the members were to the fans — at times during the quiz event, there wasn’t even a full meter between them! But, at the end of the day, the no. 1 most memorable thing for the hosts was the live show. “There’s something about that feeling of performing outdoors,” Gaki-san explains. “You get to watch the sunset as you perform!

Fan mail #1: The listener congratulates the hosts for this show now having been on the air for a full year! On the very first episode, Kame talked about how she had matured somewhat: on their previous radio show together, Kame would only receive a one-page script per episode whereas Gaki-san always got the full version. Beginning with the this show, however, Kame started receiving the full version as well. Now that a year has passed, the listener wishes to know if Kame continues to get the same script as Gaki-san.

Kame says that, “in a sense” she now receives a bit less: the version of the script that Gaki-san receives is in a bigger font so as to allow her to make notes and such. Meanwhile, Kame prefers a really small font so everything can fit on a single A4 sheet of paper. In any case, the hosts are happy about the show’s first birthday. Gaki-san remembers how, back when it was still starting, Kame would interrupt her reading of the show’s email address with her pointless mumbling. These days, however, Kame will often say actual words instead.

Which reminds Gaki-san: some time ago, they were in the car listening to the episode where Kame suddenly did her “disgusting moaning” — twice. This apparently made Gaki-san’s dad, who was in the car with her, quite worried about Kame. With that said: the two happily agree to keep doing their best towards the show’s second birthday and beyond!

Gaki-san: five-nk@interfm.jp
Kame (in a sexy voice): Daddy~ ♪
Gaki-san: five-nk@interfm.jp
Kame (in a sexy voice): I leave Risa to you… ♪
Gaki-san: Eww! Gross! (laughs) I can already picture my dad grinning to himself again if he hears this…!
Kame: Daddy… ♪ (giggles)

Hello! Drive! #75 (2017.01.13)

By | February 4, 2017

It’s currently mid-winter in Japan, and it’s cold. As a countermeasure, Yanamin wears a muffler and gloves when she goes to school. One thing that both Momochi and Yanamin both enjoy during winter is the crunch of treading on frost columns.

As for Momochi, she finds it harder to get up in the mornings, thanks to the cold. Though she generally gets up around lunch time anyway. The cold makes Momochi and her bed inseparable.

Yanamin: That’s mutual love, isn’t it?

It’s flu season, so the girls as everyone to take care. On to the first song – Hitoto Yo’s ‘Morai Naki’, released in 2002, the year of Yanamin’s birth

Hello! Drive! #70 (2017.01.06)

By | January 16, 2017

Momochi-senpai opens the show with a happy 15th birthday to Yanamin! Yanamin has heard that the age of fifteen is when one starts hearing adulthood knock on the door. Going up another step on the ladder, she’d like to mature in how she thinks and in other aspects as well.

It’s actually Momochi’s first time to be paired with Yanamin on a radio show like this. Momochi hasn’t been on a recorded radio show with proper segments and a script for quite a while (as opposed to live radio shows), so she can’t stop shaking.

Momochi: So today, I’ll be entrusting Yanamin with everything. Good luck!

Yanamin: That’s… quite a lot of pressure.

Momochi: It’ll be fine! You’ve turned fifteen, after all.

Yanamin: I, Yanamin, fifteen years old, will do my best.

On to the first song! Performed by Mr. Children, one of Momo’s favourite bands, this song was a big hit in 1992, the year of Momochi’s birth.
