By the time this recording, the spring tour will have just started. The rehearsal time was quite long for this tour. Usually, as was for the previous two concert tours, it felt like there was about a week of rehearsals and there was never enough time to remember everything. However, because there was a single release as well, the rehearsal time was longer. Typically, the dance teacher doesn’t have enough time to teach all of choreography, however there was even enough time during rehearsals to teach new formation dances. Kanon mentions that the 9th generation felt they really had to pull the whole performance up, being on top and all. The setlist is also packed with Morning Musume history, so there is a lot of pressure to perform these songs with great importance and to the best of everyone’s ability.
Kanon is really looking forward to the first day of tour, particularly because she wasn’t able to perform at the Hello! Concert due to her previous foot problems.
Song: Morning Musume ‘15 – Seishun Kozo ga Naiteiru
I, Suzuki Kanon Will Open Up To My True Feelings Message Corner!
Message 1: This writer mentions they took their first trip on the Nagano Shinkansen and heard something that mentioned “Harunan” over the speakers. After, they went on a sightseeing bus and they thought they saw a parking area to be called “Goto Maki” in romaji. Has Kanon noticed anything like this?
Kanon apologizes and says she isn’t good at paying attention to smaller details. Nor is she good at remembering kanji, so noticing small details would take extra concentration. But, as far as seeing things out of place that share Morning Musume names, Kanon recalls seeing a train station called “Ikuta” once. Cool Story.
Message 2: This mail has a simple question: what part of a person do you notice first when you first meet someone?
Kanon thinks for a moment, and decides she notices the smell of a person first. If they have a nostalgic scent, Kanon really notices it, particularly if they smell like spring. Kanon will think things like “Ah they smell like my mom, they must be nice” or like “Ah that persons perfume smells nice; they seem nice,” and doesn’t particularly notice any body part first. Although, during the Morning Musume auditions Kanon took particular note to Erina because she was wearing a flower patterned dress. Erina came off as bubbly and had a nice scent so Kanon thought “Ah she smells nice so she must be a nice girl,”. But now, Ikuta doesn’t smell as nice. Back then, Ikuta was going for a youthful appeal, so the flower patterned dress helped Kanon’s image of her. But for the most part, she doesn’t really notice anything about someone first; just their smell, if its nice.
You heard it from Kanon first: Erina stinks.
