The opening word this time is adult, courtesy of Sayubee. She says that she chose it because she wants to become more of an adult this year, which she says all the time but now she really means it.
Sayubee: I’m 17, so I think now I have to grow up… eventually… like in my makeup and stuff and… Why are you laughing?!
Yuka says that she’s conscious of this, too, and a while ago put forth more of an effort to act more mature. She recommends Sayubee pay more attention to the way she walks, the way she talks, and what she insists on carrying around with her. Sayubee says she’ll try.
This letter comes from Kasutabe and they’re writing to say how much they enjoyed Uemu’s last voice blog. They thought it was really funny and cute and they would like to hear another one for a different song. Of course, Uemu is not on this broadcast, so they will have to wait until next time to see if she does it. Yuka wasn’t present for that particular recording but she had heard about it from the staff members and eventually had Uemu do it for her, and she thought it was really funny. She says that she and Karin and Uemu have had some practice recently in doing those sorts of introductions at events, but Sayubee had some trouble recently. She was supposed to be an announcer of sorts for a fashion show and she said she had a really difficult time with it. Yuka thinks that perhaps they should all practice like Uemu on the radio show. Sayubee sounds… less enthusiastic.
The opening word this time is mango. Sayubee explains. She says that at the Hello!Cons at Nakano Sun Plaza the catering menu included shaved ice with a variety of flavors, including mango, which was especially good. In her blog, Kanazawa Tomoko wrote that Sayubee had gotten shaved ice with lemon, but Sayubee wants us all to know that that was not the case; she did not get lemon, she got mango.
It’s not lemon, it’s mango, and this is apparently very important to know.
The opening phrase is new songs, because Juice=Juice are releasing a new single on October 1! The new songs are entitled Senobi and Date ja nai yo, Uchi no Jinsei wa. Hooray!
Fan Letter #1: This letter is from Black Fried Shrimp. They’re writing to say that they went to the Juice=Juice live in Fukuoka. Everyone was excited to see the group in person and they especially enjoyed all the songs they performed. It made them think that they have to see another Juice=Juice show. They say that they love the radio show, too, and hope that they’ll keep having fun with it. Karin mentions that she messed up during one of the songs at the Fukuoka show. She says that it’s a little difficult to see in the live houses and she accidentally moved to the wrong position during a song. It happened to be the position Sayubee was supposed to be in, and it resulted in some confusion
Karin: I could see her glaring behind me. Sayubee: I didn’t know what to do. If you make a mistake you make a mistake, but then it was just going to turn into more mistakes no matter what I did! I was sweating it out. Uemu: I just watched from the back.
Every We are Juice=Juice begins and ends with a word. The opening word this time is color chalk, because all of the members of Juice=Juice have gotten some color chalk. It’s used to add very bright but very temporary color to hair, so the members each got their own fruit color to use. Sayubee got red and white in addition to yellow. They want to go out sometime with all of their colors in.
This letter comes from Iwate Apple Cheeks. They recently entered the raffle for a Juice=Juice signed poster and won! They were really excited when they heard, but after waiting so long for it to arrive they were a little bummed. Then, when they opened it, they realized that they had completely forgotten it was signed. They’re going to get it framed and can’t wait to put it up on the wall because they feel happy just looking at how cute everyone is. They look forward to seeing Juice=Juice in person. The members congratulate them on winning and thank them for listening to their radio show through Radico’s radio streaming service. Karin also reminds us that Juice=Juice will be performing in Iwate on their News=News tour in Morioka.
Song: Juice=Juice – Black Butterfly
Karin asks Sayubee to tell the listeners what to pay attention to in Black Butterfly, since they’ve been performing it at Hello!Cons and on their individual tour. Sayubee says that everyone is wearing matching costumes for this song, all in black and with butterflies, which she personally likes, and that the dance is rather sensual and has various parts that she wants everyone to try doing along to the song, as well.
