Digital Magical Management is a long running radio show hosted by Gotou Saori and Kitamura Eri airing weekly. The theme of the show is to discuss what makes an idol and to create and manage their own imaginary idol character. The particular episode where this whole thing started was when they were discussing how their idol should smell… Hmm that didn’t come out like I expected, but it seemed perfectly normal at the time hah. This started on episode #42 aired on April the 17th, 2012. A lot of the fun factor comes from the sounds Gotou makes and the way KitaEri harrasses her so I’ve cut snippets from the radio, if inclined feel free to follow along~
- Talking about smells…
KitaEri: What kind of smell do you think fits an idol the most?
Saori: Ehh? Idol?
KitaEri: I’d say strawberries? That “Strawberry” feeling!
Saori: How about candy?
KitaEri: Candy? Well we can say that it should be something sweet right?
Saori: Cotton candy!
KitaEri: The smell of cotton candy?? What kind of smell is that?
Saori: Doesn’t it sound tasty?
KitaEri: By the way what do you smell like normally? Well I guess you might not know if it’s your own smell though.
Saori: Eh? My own smell?
KitaEri: Sniff yourself. Sniff sniff!
Saori: *Starts sniffing… Loudly lol*
KitaEri: *laughs* *Starts imitating and exaggerating the sound of her sniffing*
KitaEri: What kind of smell was it?
Saori: *Gets flustered* Today is bad! Today is no good!
*KitaEri laughs and gets interested*
KitaEri: What?? What?!? What’s wrong??
Saori: Not today! *laughs*
KitaEri: What does that mean??
Saori: Today is bad!
KitaEri: Let me smell you~~
Saori: NOOO *screams*
KitaEri: Wait a moment *laughs* You’ll surprise the people listening to this at 11 am with that scream! The night broadcast will be fine though~ Hey Saori get over here~
Saori: Nooo! Not today!!
KitaEri: Can I smell you?
KitaEri: Give me a sniff~
Saori: Not today!
KitaEri: Then I’ll go to you~
KitaEri: *laughs* Hey don’t run away from the microphone! Saori~
Saori: No! No!
KitaEri: Come on Saori… It’s okay right?
Saori: No~! Today is no good!
KitaEri: Then why is today bad?
Saori: Well… I’ve bathed already…
KitaEri: If you’ve bathed already then that should be alright then!! What in the world!? *laughs*
KitaEri: Why Saori~? It’s fine~ You’ve bathed already~
KitaEri: You don’t want me to find out the smell of your bath?
Saori: It’d be fine if I’ve just come out of the bath… Then I’d be okay with you smelling me…
KitaEri: Ah you mean the moment right after you’ve come out?
Saori: Yeah then that’d be okay… But not now.
KitaEri: But your smell would be easy to tell.
Saori: No~! That’s bad!
*They both laugh*
Saori: Ahh I’ve worked up a sweat from this.
Oi Gotou you sound so…. adsflaskjfasdkflja orz
- One minute later…
KitaEri(Out of nowhere lol): …As I was saying, let me smell you~
Saori: What? Why? Nooo!
KitaEri: I like smells!
Saori: You do?
KitaEri: I wouldn’t say I have a smell fetish but I like certain smells.
Saori: Ah I can understand that. I’m like that too.
KitaEri: Then let me smell you~ What kind of smell do you let off~~
Saori: Nooo!! Not my smell!
KitaEri: Ah not your own smell? Then other people’s smell?
Saori: Other people’s are fine…
KitaEri: Wanna sniff me then?
Saori: Really?! Is that okay?? *laughs*
KitaEri: Why are you acting so embarrassed?! *laughs* What in the world?! *laughs* You’re making me embarrassed now!
KitaEri: Can I smell you then?
Saori: No! I’ve bathed already! *laughs*
KitaEri: What are you saying?! *laughs* Then how about if we go into the bath together?
KitaEri: Then we can sniff each other in the bath. *laughs*
Saori: Not together!!
KitaEri: Why!? Ah Saorin’s bath at home is rather small isn’t it?
Saori: Yeah it’s small.
KitaEri: If we squeeze in together and wash each other off it’d be okay right?!
Saori: No way! *laughs*
KitaEri: …Why are you so obviously happy when you’re saying no!! *laughs* I don’t get it! What are you smiling about?!
Well that bit about the bath went into a crazy area ahaha, and Saorin your mixed signals are confusing poor KitaEri! :D
- Another minute later…
(Talking about the smell of accessories)
KitaEri: Ah you’re always carrying a handkerchief aren’t you? Let me smell your handkerchief!
KitaEri: Come on!
*Saori smells her handkerchief*
KitaEri: Why are you checking it yourself first?? *laughs* What’d it smell like?
Saori: Mm this is… The smell of laundry detergent. *laughs*
KitaEri: Can I smell it? Can I? I’m gonna smell it! I’m gonna smell it!
Saori: Ahh! Just for a moment okay?!!! *laughs*
*KitaEri takes a deeeep breath lol*
KitaEri: Ohh! It smells lovely!
Saori: Okay that’s enough!
KitaEri: I smell the laundry.
KitaEri: And… The smell of the cushions you have at home. *laughs*
Saori: *laughs* How can you remember something like that?!
KitaEri: I remember everything about you~
They’ve mentioned it a few times on the show but KitaEri’s been going over to Gotou’s house quite a bit :D
The whole thing about KitaEri trying to take a sniff at Gotou then lay dormant for a while until a couple of episodes later, episode #44 on the first of May, 2012.
- The two of them are talking about releasing a perfume under their character’s name.
KitaEri: What were we talking about again? Ah, perfume? That could be interesting.
Saori: Yeah perfume huh…
KitaEri: Do you put much perfume— Ah! …How do you smell today~?
Saori: No, not today!
KitaEri: *laughs* Hold on, we were talking about this a few weeks ago and you said the same thing! Then when is alright?!
KitaEri: Hey Saori~~
Saori: …Not today…
KitaEri: Today is no good? Why?
Saori: …Because I haven’t bathed yet *laughs*
KitaEri: …Huh?! Eh?? Umm wha–? You said you bathed before you came last time on the radio didn’t you?
Saori: *Laughs* Yeah
KitaEri: And today you didn’t bathe before you came?
Saori: No, that’s why today is no good.
KitaEri: Ah really? Have you worked up a sweat?
Saori: Yeah I have.
KitaEri: …Where are you sweaty? *laughs* I’m asking you so you better answer~!
Saori: …Around here.
KitaEri: Where? Where? You have to say the place out loud~
Saori: No~! I can’t say something like that out loud! *laughs*
KitaEri: I’m sitting right next to you today so from this distance if I breathed in as hard as I could I should be able to smell you.
Saori: …I… Might smell really sweaty you know…?
KitaEri: It’ll be okay, I’ve got the strength of a dyson vacuum cleaner.
Saori: *laughs* I’ve never heard that before.
KitaEri: Alright here I go!
*KitaEri takes a massive sniff lol*
KitaEri: Mmm… I didn’t smell a thing!
KitaEri: Not a thing! I couldn’t smell you at all!
Saori: Today is no good I said!
KitaEri: Why?! Then how about your hand?
Saori: Not the hand as well!
*Saori smells her hand*
KitaEri: Stop smelling yourself!
KitaEri: Where can I smell then?! How about your coat?
Saori: My coat is even worse!
KitaEri: Then where?! How about your pen! Your pen! The pen you’re using! *laughs* Don’t sniff it yourself!
Saori: No not the pen as well!
*KitaEri and Saori laugh*
KitaEri: You just chucked your pen away! *laughs*
Saori: Not the pen as well!
KitaEri: I see… Then how about we call the perfume “Today is no good~”
Saori: Ah that sounds great.
KitaEri: Or maybe as a subtitle?
Saori: If I wear perfume then I wonder if I wouldn’t have to worry.
Saori: Then I’d be “Today is okay~”
*The two of them laugh*
KitaEri: “Today is alright~”?
Saori: “Today is good~”
KitaEri: You’d be able to say that then?
KitaEri: Then how about you start wearing perfume then?
Saori: Start putting on perfume?
KitaEri: We can have your perfume here in the studio with us as well.
Saori: Well I have perfume but… When I’m over the smell I stop using it.
KitaEri: Mmm yeah that’s how it is normally isn’t it? If it’s not a habit then you stop putting it on.
Saori: I know! Then I’ll put it on and come in!
KitaEri: If you do that can I smell you as much as I want?
KitaEri: Where do you put it on?
Saori: …*laughs* Around here…?
KitaEri: *whispers* Where…? Say it out loud~
Saori: …No… I can’t say something like that out loud~
Saori: Lots of places!
KitaEri: Can I say it then?
KitaEri: *Whispers even quieter* The nape of the neck~ *laughs*
Saori: Yes there…
KitaEri: Then when you put on your perfume next time can I smell your *whispers* nape as much as I want?
KitaEri: What is with this?!
*They both burst into laughter*
Oi KitaEri you’re soooo out ahaha orz.
- A few minutes later…
(Talking about cellphone earphone jack accesories)
KitaEri: Is there any reason why you don’t have any?
Saori: Not really… I just don’t really like them.
KitaEri: Why? Can I smell it?
Saori: Nn??? No!
Saori: What kind of smell would it have??
Saori: No! You can’t smell my phone!
KitaEri: Why?? What reason would you have to be against it?!
Saori: It’s because it touches this part and that part… It might smell really bad!!
*They both laugh*
KitaEri: It wont!
Saori: It might! *laughs*
KitaEri: It wont! It’ll smell nice!
Saori: It wont smell nice!
KitaEri: Really? Okay…
KitaEri: Then next time put perfume on your phone and it’ll be okay. Just a bit so as to not to break it.
Saori: Just a bit so as to not to break it?
KitaEri: Then would you let me sniff it? Saori’s phone~
*They both laugh*
- Let me lie on your lap!
(Talking about the Working!! event KitaEri participated in at around this time)
KitaEri: We had to do something like a little play where we were given a role and a theme. What I pulled out was “Sleeping girl” *laugh* I was wondering how I’d handle the role so when it started I just went to sleep. Sleeping on the table there didn’t seem very fun though so I went to the person sitting next to me, Fujita Saki-chan, and slept on her lap.*laughs* Ahh it was great… But I didn’t get to touch her bare thighs. She had a really puffed up skirt and there was a lot of stuff in between her thighs and me so I didn’t get to feel her bare skin…
Saori: Ah what a shame…
KitaEri: So yeah…. Saori… Let me lie on your lap~
Saori: Not today~!
Saori: I haven’t bathed yet!!!
KitaEri: Fine fine, how about if I don’t smell you then.
Saori: You’ll definitely smell me!
KitaEri: Yup definitely! *laughs*
Saori: What?! *laughs*
KitaEri: I want to smell you!
Saori: I told you no!
KitaEri: Then how about your knees then!
Saori: The knee??
KitaEri: Yeah! Why? Want me to go a bit higher?
Saori: No! *laughs*
KitaEri: Then lower?
Saori: Lower is bad too!
KitaEri: Then where?!!? The middle?
KitaEri: Like your inner thighs?
Saori: …That’d be okay I guess.
KitaEri: You’d be okay with there?!?
Saori: Here right?
KitaEri: The zettai ryouiki area right?! Just a bit higher than your knees? Can I sniff you there?
Saori: Smell?! You’re not allowed to smell! Wait!
*They both laugh*
KitaEri: She’s smelling herself~
Saori: No not good! What should we do?
KitaEri: I see… Well I’ve read a lot of mail today, if I gather a whole heap of points then let me smell Saori!
Saori: Ah… Then when that happens… I’ll get ready for it.
KitaEri: Wha-?! *laughs*
KitaEri’s pervertedness is hilarious! And Gotou follows her up so well ahaha.
Amusingly the whole sniffing Saorin thing continues for quite a bit a few episodes later, I might cover those few episodes in another post!
