We are Juice=Juice #56 (2014.11.04)

Because it is. Like there’s no explanation given for why Tomo chose this word and it’s probably best that way.

Anyhow, they move on to talking about their new play, Koi Suru Hello Kitty, which is about what life for Hello Kitty would be life if she turned into a human (she’s already not a cat so we’re halfway there) and went to school, but I like to imagine that it’s just a Koi Suru Fortune Cookie dance cover set in Puroland. Tomo mentions that she’s really nervous to be acting on stage for the first time so she defers to Sayubee, who is far more experienced in this realm. Sayubee says it’s a bit too early to say how things are going, but she’ll do her best to make it good. Tomo is also playing a male role in the play, an attractive young man on the soccer team. To prepare for this role, she’s been watching a lot of music videos featuring soccer boys to get an idea of how to act. Sure, we’ll go with that.

I dig it.

“Looking forward to it”

Today’s opening line comes to us from Sayubee, who really likes the drama Dear Sister and is looking forward to it. Tomo asks if this is a weekly thing, Sayubee says yes, and Tomo asks her if she’s really that excited for it every week. She is, but she confirms that she’s something of a drama fiend, and Tomo says that Yuka and Sayubee are the two always watching different dramas. Tomo gives a very insincere promise to try and watch one sometime.

They move on to talking about fall, since it’s the end of October. Tomo says that fall always makes her hungrier since the food is more tasty and she has been eating ramen regularly since the start of the season. Sayubee, on the other hand, hasn’t eaten any fall foods yet. She should get on it. Tomo says that another good fall thing to do is to snuggle with your pets. Tomo has her old cat Noontoon, but now she also has a hamster. She got interested in getting hamster when she went to a friend’s house and they had one, but then she found a reason to get one of her own:

Tomo: I went into a pet shop and they had hamsters and it was a sign.
Sayubee: They always have hamsters in pet stores, though.
Tomo: It was fate.

Nivea the hamster still can’t compete with monster cat Noontoon

A Toast

To celebrate their 50th radio show and their 1 year anniversary, Juice=Juice toast each other and also there is cake. The announcement about cake leads to a lot of yelling and screaming from Sayubee, in particular, while Uemu only wants to know if she’s allowed to eat it now. Kanatomo then asks everyone what they are drinking. Yuka’s voice is still in pretty bad shape so she’s drinking a healthier option, something called ACC juice, comprised of carrots, cabbage, and honey. The other members remark on how it certainly looks healthy and is a deep red color. Kanatomo breaks Juice=Juice code with her beverage choice, apparently.

Kanatomo: Mine is… royal milk tea.
Sayubee: Oy!
Kanatomo: I mean there’s fresh apple juice and such, but I wanted to drink milk tea, so I did.
Sayubee: Hm. Well I chose pure grapefruit juice, 100%, because I am the purest of all Juice=Juice.
Uemu: What is that supposed to mean?

Karin has a milkshake comprised of milk, eggs, and vanilla. Uemu has cocoa. Kanatomo says that Uemu has already finished more than half of her drink and looks very happy with it. They decide to start digging into the cake and Karin mentions that Uemu should get cake first, which causes much delight and encouragement from Uemu who then proceeds to eat a massive bite of it while the others are admiring it. I should mention that you can hear straw-slurping sounds in the background, most of which I assume are from her.

When they return from the song, Kanatomo comments on the straw sounds getting picked up by the mic and hopes that the listeners enjoy hearing them so that they can imagine Juice=Juice eating cake and having juice more vividly.

So in the quietest intro the show has ever had, we learn that Yuka is on the brink of losing her voice (which leads to the most pitiful “yay” I have ever heard sprinkled throughout the show) and so we wouldn’t be able to hear her with any other noise happening. She assures us that she feels fine, just can’t really talk. Kanatomo then reveals that because they are celebrating their 1st anniversary of their major debut, they will be having a special radio show this time with all five members.

Kanatomo introduces the first song, saying that out of the two songs in their next single, Senobi is much more of the typical Juice=Juice fare. It’s another in a long line of mature songs and has some lyrics about painful love and growing up, so she think it represents Juice=Juice very well. Sayubee says that at recent performances of the song, the audience members have sung the “woah woah woah” sections for them and it makes her very happy to have the fans involved with the song.

Song: Juice=Juice – Senobi

In celebration of their 1 year anniversary, they want to incorporate all 5 members into the Voice Blog in the next two weeks, as it is the specialty of We are Juice=Juice. This week, we have the three high school members presenting and reflecting on the past year with Juice=Juice. Continue reading
