Morning Musume ’15 12ki Nikki! #8 (2015.02.22)

By | March 2, 2015


Surprisingly, it’s Maria and Ogata again gracing our ears, with Ogata moving on to her third round of hosting. Ogata already has plans about what she wants her and Maria to talk about and she states it right away. She wants to talk about their current obsessions. Maria’s immediate response is that Ogata’s become notorious for always having a different obsession every day

Song: Morning Musume – Help Me!!

Ogata states her game plan again, and Maria begins her answer. Apparently, despite teasing Ogata about it just a moment ago, her obsessions change often as well. Since she was young however, she’s mostly been fixed on two things: visiting Disney World and baseball.

As Maria wraps up, Ogata realizes that there has been a bit of a 12th Gen-wide granola obsession going around. Apparently, when one person in 12th Gen get’s obsessed with something, they talk about it a lot and try to get the others to like it as well. As mentioned by Maria, Ogata’s current obsession is always changing, and she’s always posting about them on her blogs. That all aside however, right now, at this moment, she’s super into Pumpkin Soup.

Her mom had been making it a lot lately, and it was so good that Ogata started to want to eat it everyday. Of course if she continued to eat it everyday she’d certainly get fat, so she should tell her mom to stop making it, but she’s just so in love with it right now, it’s just so delicious.

Ogata: Do you like pumpkins, Maria-chan?
Maria: Ah, I somewhat like them.
Ogata: I see, somewhat.
Maria: …So next time let me have some as well-
Ogata: Not a chance.


She seems cute and innocent now… until you try and eat her pumpkin soup!

Finally, mixing things up, they have split up the younger and older pairs. Maria is in charge this week, with Ogata as support.

Of course, as Ogata mentions they don’t actually have really anything in common, but they will try their hardest today.

Song: Morning Musume – Happy Summer Wedding

Maria starts us off by mentioning that something really awesome happened to her and Ogata recently. Ogata takes over from here and explains that Ikuta-san and Fukumura-san have invited the two of them to go to Disney Sea with them. Why exactly Ikuta and Fukumura invited her and Maria, and only the two of them, she’s not sure… to make it worse they also haven’t exactly told Nonaka or Akane about it yet.

Ogata apparently can’t help but blurt out things like “Ahh! I’m so happy!” and “I wonder what kind of rides are at Disney Sea”. While Maria accidently exclaimed “Ah! I’m so excited!” one time and when Akane took interest, asking her what she was excited about Maria had to play it cool and replied with “Ahhh… nothing~”

Ogata: That sounds so suspicious (laughs).

Haa-Chel once again graces our ears, with Nonaka leading the way. They vow to be even more energetic than last time, to be more pumped up than anyone else!

Song: Morning Musume ’14 – Egao no Kimi wa Taiyou sa

Lately, it seems like a lot of things have been happening to the 12th Generation. It’s already been three months since 12th Generation was announced, neither of them can believe it. Time has just flown.

Ogata brings up the fact that there are a lot of things that 12th Gen do differently from each other. Specifically, she is thinking of a situation where they had had a choice between using an escalator or an elevator to go down. Of course, they had agreed that the best choice would have probably been for all four of them to ride the elevator together, but when it came down to it, it turned out that the four of them couldn’t ride at the same time. Thus, Ogata and Akane rode the elevator, Maria used the escalator and Nonaka… Ogata can’t actually think of what Nonaka did.

Nonaka takes over and says that on the specific day Ogata is thinking of, Nonaka had suddenly noticed that everyone was gone and… well.. she had taken the stairs down.

Another example is that they’ll all use different ways to get places that they need to all go to. Because they use different methods, they often get to their destination at different times. Actually… everything about how they get to the same place is different.

Ogata: And because the two of us are “commoners”
Nonaka: Ah, yes.
Ogata: We usually go by train.


Yeah! Team Commoner!

Today we have the return of Nonaka and Ogata, who vow to bring some energy to the radio show. They are of course excited to be doing the show together, as Nonaka and Ogata apparently hang out a lot. They are known as Haa-Chel (from their nicknames Haa-chin and Chel(sea)). Akane has even mentioned that there is a lot of Haa-Chel appearing on their blogs lately. Since they are close in age, they get along really well and often get really excited around each other.

Ogata then reminds everyone that tomorrow (2/2) is Maria’s birthday. Happy Birthday Maria! She is now officially only one year younger than the older girls. Of course, when they actually think about it… lthough Maria is technically one year younger, she always seems to be the older one.


Happy Birthday, Maria! From Haa-Chel~

Song: Morning Musume ’14 – What is LOVE?

Ogata repeats last week’s topic of the Hello! Project concerts, so now we can hear stories from the older half of the 12th generation.

Before the show starts, Ogata warms us up by asking Nonaka for today’s English. Miki replies with:

Nonaka: I can eat katsudon forever.
Ogata: What does that mean?
Nonaka: I can eat katsudon forever~!
Akane: WHAT!?!
Ogata: You’ll get fat, you’ll get fat.

Today is the second broadcast of the show and everyone is super pumped about it. Ogata mentions that she has been waiting all week to do this again. Everyone also agrees that it’s great that they get to do this every week. Today, Nonaka Miki is in charge. She asks everyone how they’re feeling now that they’ve done this once already.

Maria mentions that she doesn’t feel like she talked much last time. Hearing that, Nonaka and Ogata put in that they talked a ton. They all agree that Maria should speak up a bit more this time.

Song: Morning Musume – One Two Three

This week the staff have helped out by given them questions to answer on the show.

Question #1
Tell us some stories about your Senpai.

Ogata wishes everyone a happy New Year and the four hosts introduce themselves. Makino explains that starting this week, this show will be taking over from Sayashi’s RIHO-DELI. Nonaka states the title of the show once more and Ogata lets out a shy “yaaay!” that the other three aren’t eager to join in on.

Makino had many other ideas for the title of the show as well — her suggestions included “Otsukarechan Sunday” and “12ki Land” — but she, too, ended up going with “12ki Nikki!” There was actually a vote as to which title each member liked the best, and everyone aside from Nonaka liked “12ki Nikki!” Her suggestion was “Jiyuu ni 12ki,” but when it was time for the vote, no one aside from her raised their hand for it. “That made me feel so empty inside,” Nonaka says.

Song: Morning Musume ’14 – TIKI BUN

Since it’s the first episode of the show, the members take turns in properly introducing themselves once more and saying what they all think of their fellow generation mates.

Nonaka Miki

The other three all agree that Nonaka is the member in charge of owarai comedy — but only in introducing them to new comedy acts, not doing comedy herself. She knows all kinds of lesser known comedy routines which she loves sharing with the others. Ogata reports receiving links to owarai videos that Nonaka wants her to watch, and Nonaka says she does this to all three of them: she’ll send them video links without any sort of message to explain what it is — she simply expects everyone to watch them. Ogata is quick to announce that she hasn’t watched any of the videos sent to her.
