Name: 青エクラジオ みんなで魔神(サタン)を倒し魔SHOW!
Host: Okamoto Nobuhiko
Guest: Hanazawa Kana
Date: 2011.05.08

Radio for the Ao no Exorcist/Blue Exorcist anime hosted by Okumura Rin’s CV Okamoto Nobuhiko. The name of the radio is actually something like “AoEkuRadio Let’s Take Down Satan Together” with an english “Show!” stuck where a “shou” should be. It’s basically a play on words with the english pronounciation and the japanese pronounciation. There’s also another pun with the kanji in there but I really can’t bring myself to explain it lol.

– Okamoto as easily put off balance as ever ahaha. Right from the start.

Kana: Sorry for coming here with no makeup.
Okamoto: Huh? Waitwhatuhhuh? *laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Kana: I thought I should open up with that first.
Okamoto: Huh? But I completely— Without makeup– Sorry! Let’s just start! *laughs*
Kana: Oi I can’t understand you! *laughs* What do you mean “Without makeup”?!
Okamoto: Ah nothing! You look great without makeup! *laughs*
*Kana laughs as well*
Kana: What? Ah sorry for leading you into to saying something like that.
Okamoto: We’re starting!
Kana: Okay~

– First impressions about the character…

Kana: When I first saw her I thought she was a really cute character.
Okamoto: Yeah she’s cute, and your hair styles are exactly the same.
Kana: *laughs* Our hairstyles are identical?
*Okamoto laughs*
Kana: I guess that’s true, but this has nothing to do with me!
Okamoto: *laughs* Right sorry.

Amusingly Kana had originally voiced Shiemi to sound stupid and the staff had told her not to make her so stupid lol. Okamoto had her give an example there ahaha.

– Okamoto says that when he first saw Shiemi he had thought that Kana would be perfect for her. He then laughs and mentions again that their hairstyles are similar haha.

– Kana says that she’s really been seeing him a lot in different recordings recently.

– Okamoto mentions that he’s shy but puts effort to try to overcome it~

– What part of the story are you most interested in?

Kana: Well obviously it’s going to be–
Okamoto: “Obviously”?
Kana: Yeah obviously it’s gotta be Yuki-chan and Shiemi! *laughs*
Okamoto: …Yuki-chan? Not Rin-chan?
Kana: Eh?
Okamoto: …Eh?
Kana: Well you know how she was all over him!

– Finishing impressions…

Kana: Okamoto-kun is…
Okamoto: Oh? Something good!?
Kana: Is…
Okamoto: Is??
Kana: A pretty weird person.
Okamoto: …A weird person?
*Kana laughs*
Okamoto: Wait how am I weird??
Kana: “How“?
Okamoto: In what way?
Kana: No idea
Okamoto: “No idea“?? *laughs* Don’t say stuff  like that without putting much thought behind it!
Kana: *laughs* But seriously, the radio was fun!

This was a pretty fun episode~ These two are actually pretty friendly with one another with the two of them being similar in age, Kana being 22 and Okamoto at 24, but on top of that they’ve worked with one another in a heap of recordings, starting from when they first regulared with one another in Potemayo on 2007 and from then they’ve been regularing together in a slew of shows to this date. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that they’ve seen each other every week at some other recording or so for the past 2 years.

    HanaKana thinks ohayo should be used only till 10:30am. 10:31 onwards should be konnichiwa. And then konbanwa from 6pm onwards. XD

    Okamoto: “What if I just used doumo all day?”
    HanaKana: “Wouldn’t that sort of be a little lazy of you?”

    That was a fun radio to listen to XD

    Kokekoko-chan is so cute.

    • Ambi says:

      Yeah I found the talk about greetings and stuff pretty interesting too, I knew that in the entertainment industry “ohayo” was used no matter what time it was, but outside of that I found it interesting how Japanese people find it weird to use ohayou before the afternoon, where as the closest equivalent here. “Good Morning” is used till the afternoon without a second though. Interesting.

  • raizoo says:

    Using doumo all day would totes be me too.


    • Ambi says:

      Kana also mentioned saying “yo” instead of doumo as a joke haha. That’d be weird in a non informal situation.
      And yeah those glasses are great :D Kana looks great with glasses~ <3

    • Aurey says:

      Hipster glasses, fufuf. Our Kana is hipster. XD

      Speaking of doumo, they also agreed in the end that if you’re confused about which greeting to use, doumo is almost always safe. XD
