Itsudemo! Kannon Smile #51 (2015.11.17) (guest: Kudo Haruka)


This show aired shortly after Sayashi Riho’s graduation announcement so for the opening topic, Kanon gives her impressions on her impending graduation. First, it’s a very strange feeling for her, since it seems like it was a short time for someone to already graduate since the last one. But, Morning Musume is a rotating group, so there is constantly the thought of “Who is going to graduate next,”. Now that her generation are the seniors in the group it seemed likely one of her own would be next, but for it to be Riho, it leaves Kanon with uncertain feelings. At this point, it’s hard to believe.The 9th and 10th generation members plus Sakura are all pretty close, so it feels like when the time comes, the tears aren’t going to stop. Aside from that, it will be strange to only have 3 members in the 9th generation. Kanon hopes to make many great memories with Riho in her remaining time in the group.

Song: Morning Musume ‘14 – Otona ni Nareba Otona ni Nareru

That aside, Kanon has a guest on her show today: Kudo Haruka! She has been requested to be on the show many times, so Kanon is happy to have her here. Haruka asks if she is the first person to be requested on the show, but no, that was Sakura. Oh well, Haruka is happy to be here anyhow. Moving back to Riho’s graduation, Kanon wonders how Haruka feels about it. Of course she was a bit shocked, but Riho was always very strong so Haruka thinks she will be fine. While the group is in “sad mode” right now, there’s no point in dwelling on it, so she hopes to move forward while cherishing her remaining time with Riho.

Country Girls no Tadaima Radio Housouchuu!! #49 (2016.03.06)


Yanagawa Nanami and Funaki Musubu start off this broadcast, straight off the heels of AS1422. Funakki asks Yanamin if she’s close to any of the ANGERME members, or if she has any stories to share that involve an ANGERME member.

Yanamin feels close to Kamikokuryo Moe, who joined H!P around the same time that they did. She often sees Musubu and Kamiko-chan talking with one another as well, to which Funakki herself admits that she is quite chummy with Kamiko-chan. They hung out a while back, and even bought matching clothes. Yanamin hopes that the three of them can hang out next time, as she was unable to join them on that day due to a fever.

From her voice, Funakki suspects that the listeners can tell how nervous she is about having to take the lead for the opening of this episode. Yanamin‘s also nervous because it’s just the two of them starting off the radio programme, and while they’re used to working with one another, on radio, they’re only able to convey their thoughts through their voices. But she’d like to do her best.

The two of them had been guests on the show before, but back then, they had their senpai Risa and Ozeki to fall back on. But this time it’s just the two of them, so Funakki’s at maximum nervousness.

The rest of today’s broadcast was actually recorded on the 3rd of March (Thurs) at the special stage of Club 333, in the main observatory of Tokyo Tower, where all seven members made an appearance! But before that, here’s the first number!

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)
