Itou Kanae’s guest episode on Marunage from last year. This was one of the more amusing radio episodes I’ve heard for a while, I actually listened to this last year but relistening to it was still great fun <3. Kana x Kanae is wonderful <3
Ueda Kana has been a big fan of Kanae for quite a while, during the radio (and outside the radio) she has amusingly (and… probably a bit creepily lolol) fangirled over how adorable Kanae is as well as detailing where she’s seen her recently and it’s come to the point where the radio itself has a corner called “This week’s Kanae-chan!” where people send in information about what Kanae’s been up to for the two of them to read lol. This episode was a birthday celebration episode for Kana so they had a Kanae theme throughout it and as a pleasant surprise to Kana, Kanae comes in as a surprise guest for the later half of the radio to her delight <3.
- This was around the time she bought an iPad. This was the first time she’s bought from Apple, saying that she has a Windows machine at home and no iPhone. Shimizu on the other hand had just bought an iPhone recently though she laughs that she has no idea how to use it and has only had “staring contests” with it haha.
- The two of them talk about twitter, which Shimizu had just started using. They laugh that the Wolkenritter family from Nanoha is there with Sanada Asami and Yuzuki Ryouka, though they’re not sure if Zafira’s CV Kazuya Ichijou is there (he’s not IIRC). They mention Tamura Yukari as well :D
Shimizu: The more you answer correctly the more presents you’ll get! And they’ll all be presents related to Kanae as well!
Kana: Oh?! Will that be like a piece of clothing worn by Kanae?!
Shimizu: *laughs* They’ll be something that’s one of a kind in the world!
Shimizu: It might be Kanae’s strawberry panties *laughs*
Kana: Strawberry panties on Kanae? …It fits her too well *laughs*
- Incidentally Kana has Kanae’s wikipedia page open on her iPad and is allowed to use it to answer questions lol. She laughs and exclaims that the answers to these type of questions wouldn’t be on the page though after hearing the questions haha. I’ve transcribed the 30 questions as well as (creepy(?)) quotes and reactions from Kana’s answers but… Err… It’s really long so bear with me, I’ll put it under a spoiler tag lol.

Lol and so Kana gets it right with green ahaha.
- The questions are all personal things to do with Kanae that aren’t written on fact pages like Wikipedia so Shimizu laughs that Kana answering all these questions about Kanae correctly is pretty creepy ahaha.
- Kana asks Kanae why she wrote deep blue as underwear that fits Kana lol. She says it was just the first colour that comes to mind when she thinks of her image.
- Kanae said that when she answered the questions they weren’t multiple choice, to their surprise and delight upon finding out that her writing “N’s” as her favourite musician was by her own will <3
- When asked about the siamese cat animal comparison question Kanae answers that when she thinks of Kana as an animal she has an image of her as a mature cat. On the other hand she says that Shimizu has the image of a squirrel in her mind, to the two of them’s surprise.
- When Kana sees Kanae’s writing she gushes over her handwriting “Ahh look at that handwriting it’s so feminine~” and Shimizu laughs that Kana’s being really creepy ahaha.
Kana fawned over how cute Kanae is throughout the radio, with Shimizu reminding her how creepy she’s being in front of Kanae on occasion ahaha. Kanae seemed kinda nervous from all the praise and doting <3
Wow writing out the quiz took up a lot of space hah.
