Trattoria Buono! #22 (2013.08.31)

By | October 8, 2016


♪ Buono! – Rock no Kamisama ♪

The 31st of August, the last day of August, is Yasai no Hi, vegetable day!

Momoko: Summer’s the season when veggies are at their tastiest, right?

Miyabi: Buono!

Momoko: Buono indeed.

Momoko: What are you favourite vegetables?
Miyabi: Tomatoes~
Airi: Cucumbers~
Miyabi: Lettuce~
Airi: Eggplant~
Miyabi: Cabbage~
Airi: Hmm hmm~
Miyabi: You’ve lost~ Airi, you’ve lost~
Momoko: We’ve barely even started and suddenly some random game just started…

Momoko‘s a bit weirded out with the mood in the studio this evening, so Airi decides to apologise:


Momochi isn’t going to let such a half-hearted Yurushite-nyan get off so lightly, and she berates Airi for using it so recklessly. It’s something to be treasured!

Airi: Yurushite-nyan.
Momoko: Much better.
Miyabi: That was cute.
Momoko: That was borderline ok though. I hoped that you’d end it just a bit more cutely.
Airi: Nyan♥?
Momoko: Right, thank you.

Trattoria Buono! #72 (2014.08.16)

♪ Buono! – Rottara Rottara ♪

Momoko announces that today, the 16th of August, is Female University Students Day! Established in 1913, it commemorates when 3 girls passed the entrance exams for Tohoku University, making them the first female university students in Japan.

Momoko: Airi~n, how about that, as a university student?
Airi: Wait, Momo, you’re no longer a university student any more, are you?
Momoko: Yes, that’s right. I already graduated a while back. 4 years flew by in the blink of an eye.

Airi‘s currently smack in the middle of the long summer holidays. She’s thinking about joining a research society once classes restart. Summer break is actually one of the toughest times of the university year, as this is the time when university students are working their hardest on studies.

Momoko: Natsuyaki-san, can we have some words of encouragement?
Airi: Natsuyaki-san!
Miyabi: All of you, listen!
Momoko: Oh, this is going to be good!

Miyabi: Everyone… do your best.

Momoko: Thank you very much for your shallow comment. (laughs)

Trattoria Buono! #100 (2015.02.28) *FINAL EPISODE*

By | March 15, 2015


♪ Buono! – We Are Buono! ~Buono! no Theme ♪

Momoko announces that today’s broadcast is the 100th! Amazing, isn’t it? Although it’s something to be happy about… today is the show’s last broadcast as well. It may be sad to part, but they’d like to make this broadcast an entertaining one for the listeners.

As per usual, Momoko continues by announcing that today that is ‘Bakayarou no Hi‘ – ‘Bakayarou‘ meaning something like ‘(You) Dumb Fool’. It commemorates the day in 1953 when Prime Minister Yoshida Shigeru replied to another legislator with a ‘bakayarou’, which eventually led to dissolution of the Diet in mid-March. For a commemoration, the girls find it a sad one in all sorts of ways.

Momoko asks if there’s anything that made them so mad that they’d utter ‘bakayarou‘, even if it doesn’t feel like an appropriate discussion for the final broadcast. She starts bringing up her absence from last week, which immediately has the others calling her a bakayarou. This means that the only member with perfect attendance for the show is Airi, since there was a point when Miyabi was absent.

Momoko: Airi-chan, give a comment as the winner of the perfect attendance prize.

Airi: Bakayarou!

Momoko & Miyabi: Eh?

Momoko and Miyabi again apologise for their absences, but thankfully they’re all together for the final broadcast.

Given that today is Bakayarou no Hi, as well as the final episode of this programme, they’re going back to their starting point with Buono!’s debut single, Honto no Jibun.

♪ Buono! – Bravo☆Bravo ♪

Momoko‘s down with the flu, so we only have Airi and Miyabi in the studio today, which is a first. The girls wish her a speedy recovery and hope that the listeners take care as well.

Back to the usual, Miyabi announces that the day after the broadcast, 22nd of February, would be ‘Neko no Hi‘ – ‘Cat Day’. It’s Japanese wordplay again – the twos can be read as ‘nyan’, which is the Japanese equivalent of ‘meow’. Similarly to Inu no Hi, when you put it together, the 22nd day of February gets you ‘Nyan nyan nyan‘.

Airi: The Yurushite-nyan person isn’t around for this broadcast though.

Miyabi loves cats, while Airi is allergic to them. Miyabi adds that while she’s allergic to cats too, she still likes them (Airi: ‘That’s heartbreaking‘). Allergies don’t stop Miyabi from looking at them though, albeit against glass displays. Airi mentions that ℃-ute leader Yajima Maimi also likes cats, and has amassed a collection of cat photos. However, she’s got dogs at home, which aren’t getting replaced any time soon. Miyabi finds cats soothing, and would probably have cats if it wasn’t for her allergies. Airi herself wouldn’t, but notes that Momoko, even if she does go ‘Yurushite-nyan’, doesn’t like cats.

BZS1422 #137 (2015.03.01) (guest: Berryz Koubou) *FINAL EPISODE*

By | March 3, 2015


This is the very final episode of BZS1422, and to celebrate, it’s a one-hour special! Chii laughs, though, as she explains that the only reason they managed to squeeze in the extra time is because they stole the 30-minute slot from AS1422 that usually follows BZS1422. Tough luck, ANGERME fans.

That’s not the only thing that’s special about this last episode: like last week, our hosts are once again joined by the rest of Berryz Koubou! The guests take turns in introducing themselves and listing one thing they like about the hosts:

  • Something Shimizu Saki likes about Chii: the way she eats so much
  • Something Tsugunaga Momoko likes about Chii: the mole on her left ring finger
  • Something Sudo Maasa likes about Chii: the way she fawns on Maasa
  • Something Natsuyaki Miyabi likes about Kumai-san: the way she gets embarrassed
  • Something Sugaya Risako likes about Kumai-san: her cute smile

BZS1422 #136 (2015.02.22) (guest: Berryz Koubou)

By | February 28, 2015


There are two episodes of BZS1422 left until the end, and over these past 135 episodes, Chii hasn’t been successful in not flubbing her words at least once per episode. Not even once. She swears that on this episode, though, she’s going to do just that. Kumai-san asks Chii if she’s absolutely sure she wants to make such a bold statement, and Chii answers in the affirmative: she is sure.

Chii flubs her words around 45 seconds later.

The two hosts welcome their very special guests of the week. They introduce themselves as Shimizu “likes the easiness of having short hair” Saki, Tsugunaga “cute” Momoko, Sudo “likes Little My” Maasa, Natsuyaki “likes the summer” Miyabi, and Sugaya “loves secondhand clothing” Risako. Chii asks them all to relax: everyone seems to look very worried about being featured on a radio show hosted by Chii and Kumai-san of all people.

Kumai-san: You came on as a guest before, right, Captain? You seemed worried back then, too.
Captain: Right. Because you two don’t listen to a word of what the staff tells you.

Berryz Kobo Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! 11-nen no kiseki – Part II (2015.02.18)

By | February 23, 2015

Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! (Rise! Bow! Return to your seats!) was Berryz Kobo’s first radio show which ran for 5 years, from March 2004 until March 2009. In March 2014, they reunited for a 10 year special broadcast. Now, for the final time, the girls get together again for a special broadcast, ‘Berryz Kobo Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! 11-nen no kiseki’ (11 years of miracles).

In the previous, first part of the summary, the girls looked back on their 11 years of activities. They also received several messages from concerned parties.
In this second part of the summary, one-by-one, the girls convey their messages to the fans.


Since they’ve gone through all this trouble to hold this special programme, the members, one-by-one, will deliver their messages to the fans. While they’re sure that they’ll have parting words at their final Budokan concert, with all the goings-on at the concert, they’d be at an emotional peak at that point in time. With this opportunity, while they’re still composed, they’d like to convey what they would like to say.

Everyone’s nervous, so Momochi volunteers to be the first to give her message. She doesn’t like solemn atmospheres, so she’ll just go at it with the mood as-is.

Momoko’s message

To all the listeners, to all the fans, thank you for the tons and tons of love you’ve showered us with throughout these 11 years.

Just as you can hear even from today’s radio broadcast, I may seem inconsiderate. Yet even someone like me gets told ‘You’re cute, you’re cute‘. I truly do receive a lot of love from you. Thank you so very much.

The memories of Berryz Kobo really warm me up from within. Of course, I believe that it’ll always remain in my heart. I wish that it would continue in the fans’ hearts as well. I’d like it if Berryz Kobo would continue to be rooted in your hearts forever. Please be prepared for it.

For these 11 years, thank you very much.

Berryz being Berryz, the members teasingly comment about Momo becoming all serious.

 Chinami: When you mentioned the part about being rooted in their hearts, it was a serious comment that you wouldn’t expect to come from Momochi.

Momoko: So would it have been better if I went ‘For these 11 years, thank you very much-nya~n?’

Berryz Kobo Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! 11-nen no kiseki – Part I (2015.02.18)

By | February 22, 2015

 Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! (Rise! Bow! Return to your seats!) was Berryz Kobo’s first radio show which ran for 5 years, from March 2004 until March 2009. In March 2014, they reunited for a 10 year special broadcast. Now, for the final time, the girls get together again for a special broadcast, ‘Berryz Kobo Kiritsu! Rei!

In this first part of the summary, the girls look back on their 11 years of activities. They also receive several messages from concerned parties.
In the second part of the summary, one-by-one, the girls convey their messages to the fans.


With the traditional Kiritsu! Rei! Chakuseki! (KRC) greeting of  ‘Konbanuhhi!’, the members introduce themselves in eldest-to-youngest order. The girls explain that KRC was their first regular programme as Berryz Kobo, and in this special broadcast, their very last KRC, they’ll be talking about Berryz Kobo’s 11 years of history. In the five years of the original run, Chinami felt like the recording studio had become their second home.

But yeah, 11 years. Chinami reflects that when she sees her juniors again after an extended period of time, she notices how much they’ve grown. In a way, this was a change of positions – it used to be that they would receive comments about their growth from their seniors.

Risako adds that the juniors are pretty spirited when it comes to greeting their seniors i.e. the girls of Berryz Kobo. She now understands how their own seniors must have felt when their seniors told them that it was unnecessary to be so enthusiastic in their greetings.

Momoko announces that there’s a letter from Tsunku♂-san, and hands it over to Kumai-chan to be read out.

Yurina: Ah, this is a real letter
