FIVE STARS Niigaki Risa & Kamei Eri #65 (2010.06.28)


Fan mail #1: “Is there anything you two want to get your hands on right now?”

Kame is quick to suggest: “…money?!” Gaki-san says that money is actually the first thing she thought of as well. She explains that this is not really because she loves money, but because the group previously had a shoot where they were holding a bunch of money, and they had to let go so it could be blown upwards towards the ceiling. At the time, she thought it might be nice to be able to have that sort of money in real life.

Gaki-san had a quick change of heart, though, when at the end of the shoot someone from the staff loudly yelled out “be sure to find every last yen!!!” It seems they were having a bit of trouble recovering all of the money. Luckily, our hosts themselves weren’t suspected of stealing — in fact, the only person the staff thought might’ve taken some was none other than Tanaka Reina.

FIVE STARS Niigaki Risa & Kamei Eri #64 (2010.06.21)


Fan mail #1: “Ai-chan has mostly a Western bodily constitution. How about you two?”

Gaki-san doesn’t understand what the listener means by a “Western” constitution, until Kame realizes: it could be in relation to Ai-chan’s great English pronunciation. Meanwhile, Kame thinks Gaki-san has a “Yokohama constitution” — just because she’s so stylish. As for herself, Kame thinks she has an “Edokko constitution.”

Song: Morning Musume – Seishun Collection

Fan mail #2: This message is from a 17-year-old high school girl who simply wishes to say that she loves Morning Musume and she hopes they will come to perform live in Hokkaido.

The hosts are happy to receive messages like this. They’re also quite sure that they haven’t performed as Morning Musume in Hokkaido for several years now, but they hope to be able to do so soon.

Fan mail #3: The listener wishes to know what the hosts’ favorite or most used mobile phone emoji are.

As of late, Kame has been a fan of the black, running stick figure emoji, as well as the penguin emoji. Meanwhile, Junjun uses loads and loads of heart emoji in her emails. Gaki-san on the other hand likes the yellow, “sleepy eyes” emoji.

Tsugunaga Momoko no Puri Puri Princess ~Momochi Forever~ (2017.06.29)

This radio broadcast, aired the day before her graduation, marks Momochi’s last radio appearance. It’s been five years since the Puri Puri Princess broadcasts ended in 2012, after she had just turned twenty. If she includes the five years of Berryz Kobo’s radio show, Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki!, she’s been part of a regular radio show for 10 years – 40% of her life.

The show has received a huge stack of letters! The first one Momo reads out congratulates her on the return of Puri Puri Princess! By the way, what is she wearing right now?

That may have seemed to come out of nowhere, but back in the day, Momochi would describe what she was wearing, for the benefit of the listeners who would have had no way to see her. That slowly stopped happening, partly due to time constraints and also the lack of variety in her clothes. This time around, she’s fully equipped, wearing a pink dress.

Transitionary jingle: Hey Jiiya, where are the congratulatory flowers I got from Tom Cruise-san?

FIVE STARS Niigaki Risa & Kamei Eri #63 (2010.06.14)


Fan mail #1: The listener received an email from their boyfriend the other day, asking which they like better: tuna mayo or cold tofu. Thus, the listener simply passes the question on to our hosts. Which?

The hosts have trouble understanding why one would even compare these two seemingly unrelated things. Gaki-san chooses cold tofu and Kame, who hates cold tofu, has no trouble choosing tuna mayo. The relative light mood of the show’s beginning soon turns into irritation for Gaki-san, however, when Kame disrupts her reading of the show’s email address — this time especially tirelessly.

Kame describes the above as her attempt at being a DJ.
