I hope we can keep having these anniversaries in the future, too!
In Duet, they talk about new things they'd like to try, like music instruments or acrobatics, and Taiga wonders how he could probably do both Elisabeth's practice and Crea at the same time.
In Wink Up, they do the same theme they did three years ago, how would it be to live together with these members.
Jesse: This time the talk theme seems to be "The first xx", but what if we first talked about Crea and "Elisabeth"?
Juri: I'm looking forward to Crea! But you know, even though I thought that this time we could do it as the six for the first time, Kyomoto-kun has a musical so he can't be there, it's a shame.
Taiga: I was also all in the mood of being there, we had thought of a song, which we would've done together with Jesse, and with Juri we were like "let's play guitar together", so it really is a shame... But I'm really grateful that I'm able to be in the musical. Right now I will do my best with the musical with all my strength.
Shintaro: When we have our Crea shows, the musical hasn't started yet, right?
Taiga: Yeah, we'll be practicing. But it looks like the Golden Week is packed with practices.
Hokuto: And to be frank, we’ve been planning the shows with the mood of "When Kyomoto can come and watch, it's okay for him to just join us!"
Shintaro: Yeah. That's why it’s okay for you to come any time.
Taiga: Thanks (laughs).
Juri: I mean, right now, we're planning on doing daily special songs on Crea, and the one who suggested that was Kyomoto-kun.
Taiga: Yes, me!
Jesse: Oh, we're going to do something like that?
Taiga: No, no, it's true?
Juri: It's true, it's true (laughs). In the end, we're making this Crea together as six. Because of that, I really want to say: "Kyomoto-kun's fans also come to watch!"
Taiga: Well, even though I won't be standing on the stage with you, my heart is connected or something... The distance between Crea and Imperial Theater is also short. First, connect the two theaters underground, and then during Elisabeth's practice I'll be like "I'll go to toilet quickly" and come to Crea to show my face, I'd want to make a secret path like that.
Hokuto: For real, is that your enthusiasm for the musical?
Taiga: As one would expect, yes (laughs). But I'm the only one from Johnny's in the musical, so there are no senpais or friends there. I'm a bit nervous like, "when we meet [with the rest of the cast], how will it go?"
Hokuto: Should we come with you?
Juri: Ah, yeah, let's do that!
Yugo: If we all went wearing suits, wouldn't that be kinda cool?
Juri: That's good. A while ago, I bought a suit from a wedding store for coming-of-age ceremony, so I'll go wearing that.
Hokuto: I also bought a suit a little while ago.
Yugo: I already have one, so I'll go with that.
Juri: Shintaro would wear the school uniform, right?
Shintaro: Eeh. I'm the only uncool one.
Juri: Well, that was only a joke but I really want to go and watch Kyomoto-kun's musical with everyone.
Jesse: Okay, from now on, the real talk.
Shintaro: "The first xx" talk?
Jesse: It seems to be ok with "I want to start xx!", too. I graduated from high school and from this spring onwards my own time increases, so I want to steadily do things that I can. Making songs, playing guitar.
Taiga: I'm doing both songs and guitar with stability so one thing I'd like to start is bodybuilding. Towards summer, I want to create a body that's okay to show!
Shintaro: Hokuto starts university life, right?
Jesse: As an active university student, give some advice, Kouchi-san. It's better to make lots of friends in university, right?
Yugo: That helps during lectures and when there are reports and stuff. If one can make friends, university's totally fine.
Juri: But Hokuto's shy, so~
Hokuto: It seems like I'd suddenly call to like, Juri after the lecture is over... If there's a normal call from me instead of a video one, it's because I've been lonely and crying and don't want to show that kind of face.
Hokuto: But you know, it's five days a week when you go to university, right? Could I have you come with me each day in turns?
Juri: I see. Because there's five of us, if we rotate that's just right.
Yugo: Oi oi, are you stupid (laughs).
Shintaro: What kind of new thing would Juri want to start?
Juri: I graduated from high school last year and during this one year, I got it... I want to, after all, live for people. If everyone's happy, then that's enough... (Distant look).
Yugo: Above that, Juri, are you having a proper feeling of time? Like, right after you stopped being a student, your days and nights are reversed and the rhythm of life disordered!
Juri: While thinking "What do I want to start from now on...", it does become morning.
Jesse: Instrument! A while ago you said "I'll play some instrument", didn't you?!
Juri: Aah, I do have a guitar.
Shintaro: You only have it?
Juri: No, mostly...
Taiga: Mostly what?
Juri: I don't understand the levels at all.
Yugo: I'm also doing my best with bass so Juri, practice playing, too!
Hokuto: Should I start with keyboard, too...
Jesse: Yeah. Make the best use of the experience you have from the drama "SHARK". Then I shall do castanets.
Yugo: Shintaro can do drums, right? First, sell all the accessories you're wearing and buy an electric drum set and practice! Then, we could also be a band with these six.
Jesse: A while ago we also talked about how we'd all want to do backflip together. Like, "if we did with the six, wouldn't it be funny?"
Shintaro: Instead of funny let's make it cool (bitter smile).
Hokuto: Right now the only one who can do an acrobatic like backflip is Shintaro.
Jesse: I can do it sometimes! If there's a mat, I think I can do it.
Hokuto: Then, I can do it a little...
Yugo: I'm also so-so.
Jesse: Liar! You can't do it, right?
Juri: If I tried, I think I'd lose my life... Well, if that's okay then I'll do it though.
Jesse: My mom, she was all impressed by Juri's "get down" (a dance move) already? Like, "Eh, he can do that!" She said the same to me, too, when I did only a cartwheel with one hand. People think that we can't do something like acrobatics. Isn't that frustrating?
Juri: ...Got it. Il'l practice.
Jesse: If we all will be able to do that, we can change the ways we're performing in many ways, too.
Shintaro: Fans would also think something like "they've really worked hard", right?
Juri: It's a growth you can see with your eyes.
Yugo: Okay, let's practice! Kyomoto, try doing a backflip? It's raining~ (laughs).
Shintaro: Kyomocchan would also do it, right?
Taiga: Practice? I'm fine doing it...
Jesse: It's not "I'm fine doing it", I'll surely make you do it!
Taiga: Yamamoto Ryota's taught me once. But, he said "you'd better stop".
Shintaro: Eh, does that mean that even though That Yamamoto Ryota was teaching you, it was useless?!
Taiga: Yeah. "Impossible", he said.
Hokuto: Then there's no other choice but to get Chinen-kun to teach you, right?
Shintaro: Akito-kun is good at teaching! Or rather, how about Tsuka-chan?!
Hokuto: If it's Tsuka-chan, he'd maybe take us out to eat after practice…
Yugo: Really?! After we've learnt backflip, let's receive a reward~♪
Jesse: No, normally we'd need to do something to thank him though (bitter smile).
Yugo: Yosh, Tsuka-chan's decided for backflip teacher! Until now, there was a talk about us six trying backflip and playing in a band for the first time, but what would Shintaro want to start?
Hokuto: Say: "I want to do a drama"!
Shintaro: To be honest, if it's something I can do together with the six of us, I'm okay with anything. For that I'll do anything.
Yugo: Oh, the youngest one said something cute.
Shintaro: Hehehe (laughs).
Jesse: But we won't spoil you!!
Wink Up 2015.05
Yugo: We apparently did a talk with a theme "what if you'd try community life with these members" three years ago.
Shintaro: Uwah, I don’t remember that at all!
Taiga: No, I do have a déjà vu kind of feeling.
Yugo: So, today we'll have a talk with the exactly same theme.
Everyone: That seems like fun!
Taiga: We'll be well liked if we answer exactly the same as back then, right (laughs).
Hokuto: I want to fiercely oppose to the community life though (laughs). But well, if we'd try it, I'd be in charge of cooking, I guess.
Jesse: It seems like we could entrust Hokuto with cooking with a peace of mind.
Hokuto: But making food for six people every day is kind of hard. And like, Shintaro seems like he's picky about food.
Juri: I get that! No matter what he'd eat, it feels like he'd say things like "Isn't this a bit tasteless? If you'd put soy sauce it'd be good". Conversely, the one who'd eat with good appetite is...
Jesse: Definitely me.
Juri: No, that's me.
Taiga: No, it's me.
Yugo: Wait a sec. This is the same pattern as on last month's issue. Just how much do you hate losing (laughs)?
Jesse: The thing I'd be in charge of is probably cleaning and stuff like that.
Juri: Kouchi is... the chauffer (laughs).
Shintaro: That's good! Drop off in the morning and pick up in the evening!
Yugo: Don't joke around (laughs). I'm also working you know! Wouldn't there be other tasks left?
Jesse: You'd put everyone/everything in order. Later, when you've got everyone's plans, you'd hand out schedules and stuff like that.
Yugo: The dropping off and picking up and schedules and stuff, those are manager-san's work (laughs)!
Jesse: It's because you're doing everything properly. No one but you can do that. (While placing a hand on Yugo's shoulder and squeezing) Right!
Yugo: I can't understand that "Right!" filled with so much power (laughs). I'm gonna say this myself but I'm a person who cleans up and does laundry.
Jesse: But that quota is already filled by me. And you know, we went to karaoke today, me and Kouchi and Shintaro, but these two, they didn't like, clean up the table at all.
Yugo: Uh... Meanwhile, I was cleaning up the toilet.
Jesse: Don't lie (laughs)!
Yugo: Certainly, Jesse always keep places like the dressing room clean but your bag is all messed up with weird things inside!
Jesse: Eh, like what?
Kouchi: Your magic spoons, there are like 7 of them there (laughs).
Shintaro: Moreover, you've already bended them so they're all weirdly unwieldy (laughs).
Jesse: If we do community life, I'll show you magic tricks every night!
Hokuto: ...We don't need them every night (laughs). I'd want to confirm one thing: when we'd live together, we'd still have own rooms, right?
Juri: Ehh, because it's community life, be in the same room with me~
Hokuto: For you only it's a no (laughs).
Juri: ....while saying that, you're still making a face that's not at all dissatisfied~
Hokuto: I'd have my own room on principle but if I'd feel lonely and would want to talk with someone, I'll put a sign "Please come in freely" on the doorknob (laughs).
Jesse: If we'd share rooms, I recommend myself. I don't even snore or anything. I'm a super soundless guy!
Hokuto: If I'd have to share a room with someone... Then it'd maybe be Shintaro.
Shintaro: (happily) Really?
Hokuto: I mean, Shintaro's someone who wouldn't be in his room at all. He'd go where there are lots of people. ...So I'd get to keep the room for myself (laughs).
Taiga: In reality, when there are tours, it's like that.
Juri: I have personal experience of that, one extremely tiresome night. At tour, we were staying at a hotel, and Shintaro came to my room because "In our room, Kyomoto-kun went to sleep already". And then, with that, Shintaro fell asleep on my bed.
Hokuto: Then, Juri, what did you do?
Juri: Well, I didn't have a place to sleep, so I played games until 5 in the morning. When the morning came, I woke Shintaro up and said "Go back to your room already", and he was like: "Eh, Juri, are you gonna sleep? Uwa, you haven't? Impossible~" (laughs).
Everyone: You're the one who's impossible (laughs)!
Yugo: Shintaro's too energetic, and as a roommate that's a bit worrying (laughs).
Shintaro: You know, I say this myself but I think that I'm extensively helpful person?
Juri: You really do small things like "go and get me some juice" without getting annoyed. A bit like a helper robot (laughs).
Shintaro: No, no, that's not it. I'm the boss of these members!
Hokuto: He started saying ambiguous things again (laughs).
Taiga: Tell concrete example of a time that you've become our boss (laughs).
Juri: By the way, I can't imagine Kyomoto-kun's everyday life at all! If there was a DVD called "Everyday life of Kyomoto Taiga", I'd probably buy it (laughs). If it was under 2300yen, I'd get it.
Taiga: Really? Then, should I bring some video material next time?
Yugo: Kyomoto... How about something like walking a dog? Taking care of pets?
Hokuto: Or rather, how would it be if we made him the pet (laughs)?
Taiga: That's okay but do treat me with care then.
Yugo: We'll prepare a cage for you. Like a one you can put a hamster in (laughs). We'll also put in one guitar.
Taiga: That cage is the worst but if it isn't 6 tatamis then it's a no.
Jesse: That’s ok. We'll make one together with everyone. But we'll attach a lead?
Hokuto: Then, Shintaro can be in charge of walking him.
Taiga: Uwaa, that'll be hard. I don't need walking. I'll take care of myself so it's ok not to mind about me (laughs). What's Juri in charge of?
Juri: Me? .......I'm in charge of rapping (laughs).
Yugo: In what times would you participate?
Juri: I mean.... A rap for the meal Hokuto's made and the like. When he'd make Chinese stir-fry, I'd report to everyone with rap what does taste like and how does it look like.
Hokuto: Only that is a bit... While you're at it, please also put the wrap on the food I made. [*T/N: a word play with the word ラップ which means not only rap but also plastic wrap XD]
Juri: Okay, okay. I'll carry different sizes of wraps in my back pocket, so I can put the wrap on the food anytime. And furthermore, I'll also give you lyrics about the food.
Yugo: Doesn't that seem surprisingly hard? You'd have to change your rap every 365 days depending on the menu?
Taiga: Hmmm, it feels like it would become a tiresome thing instead (laughs). Juri doesn't really move his body but only his mouth, right (laughs)?
Juri: That's right. I'm rather good at putting out a feeling that I'm really doing it. Then, during the talk three years ago, it seems that we were compared to a family. Now, the father and mother would be...
Jesse: As one would expect, mother is Hokuto, who can cook and father by the age is Kouchi, right?
Everyone: That's right.
Hokuto: I'm fine with being the mother, but a wife that's wrapped in mystery by having an unusual relationship with a husband in the neighborhood would be good (laughs).
Jesse: Then, the father Kouchi is a little interested in a young woman in the neighborhood (laughs).
Taiga: That's complicated (laughs)! I would be the oldest son, right?
Juri: No, you're the pet!
Taiga: Got it. Well, then I shall get married with a pet from the neighborhood, too (laughs).
Shintaro: The oldest son would be Jesse, right?
Yugo: No, he's not the oldest son type. He'd be the middle son!
Shintaro: Then, the oldest is Juri, the middle one Jesse and I'd be the youngest child.
Juri: No, you're a gofer.
Hokuto: No, no, he's a freeloader.
Shintaro: Let me be part of the family too (laughs)!
Juri: Okay, the staff-san just brought the contents of our talk three years ago. Hmm let's see, back then, the ones we named as father and mother are... Hokuto and Kouchi!
Yugo: It hasn't changed!
Juri: Then, Kyomoto and Tanaka. "High school students who have started to act cool. Kyomoto is a big brother who gets mad at random times" (laughs).
Yugo: That's "a period when Kyomoto looked sour", right (laughs).
Jesse: Even at the filming location, he'd have the aura of "I won't flock with the others". He was always alone playing with his phone.
Taiga: Was it like that?
Jesse: It was. It was a light brown phone.
Everyone: Aah, I remember!
Hokuto: Like always, Jesse's memory is super good (laughs).
Shintaro: Kyomocchan, your character since then has changed a lot, hasn't it!
Taiga: This is embarrassing! Right now, I have the feeling of "If there was a hole, I'd want to crawl in there" (laughs).
Juri: Jesse is "the idiot youngest child. He seems like he'd play with Shintaro and they'd break a bed. Right now at the shooting location, the two of them had a sumo spring tournament".
Everyone: Ahahahaha! Yes, yes, yes!
Hokuto: That's so nostalgic~ They often frolicked together.
Juri: They were doing sumo, and when Shintaro's headbutt hit his chest, Jesse was like "Ah, I surely got a bone fracture!", exaggerating and making a fuss of it, I remember that.
Taiga: He was like "I can't breathe! It surely fractured!". Are you an elementary school student (laughs)?
Jesse: I was a brat like that?
Everyone: (in unison) You were!
Juri: The Jesse right now, he's calmed down, he's a like a different person.
Hokuto: Well, if those two frolicked like that now, it wouldn't be only a bed but all kinds of things would break, I think.
Shintaro: I'd still kinda want to do sumo, though...
Jesse: If we did that seriously, I think I'd really break bones now (laughs).
Juri: Then, Shintaro three years ago.... A pet (laughs).
Shintaro: Oh, I was the pet~
Taiga: If you think about it, back then I was an angry older brother and now everyone's pet... I've mellowed too much (laughs)?
Yugo: People call that kind of thing "growing up" (laughs).
Hokuto: This talk, wouldn't you want to do this again after three years?
Taiga: Rather, I'd want to wait even more and do it after ten years (laughs).
Yugo: If you imagine it, it's kinda unpleasant. Six people under and over 30 living together (laughs).
Shintaro: It'd be rather squalid (laughs). But at that time, I may be calmed down as well, so I think it'd be peaceful (laughs).
Thanks for reading! :3/ As always, comments are appreciated.
They're such idiots, I can't with them XD
