Sakura Ayane’s Love for Hanazawa Kana

October 15th, 2013 § 24 comments § permalink

sakukanaWhat first got me interested in Sakura Ayane was when I heard she was a big fan of Hanazawa Kana (And I’d say big is an understatement now that I know how much of a fan she is!) and anyone who loves Hanazawa Kana is A-OK in my books :D I’m not sure how wide spread her love for Kana is but I’ve always wanted to write something about it!

I’ve gathered a few snippets for this post, the first one is from Moja-senpai & Sakura-kun. This was actually the first time I had heard Sakura on radio and was what instantly made me a fan of hers. The snippet was at the start of the radio show, instead of the two personalities doing a normal self-introduction the radio had a quiz: “The answer is Sakura/Moja!” where the question was information about the person asking the question, e.g. Sakura Ayane would ask something like: Q: “Which seiyuu is SUPER interested in yuri?” A: Sakura Ayane.
This was after Tone had said his quiz questions so it was Sakura’s turn.

Sakura: Which seiyuu is SERIOUSLY wishing for the day that her dog will start speaking with Hanazawa Kana’s voice??? *creepy laugh*
Tone: Err, your inner feelings are leaking out… *laughs*
*Sakura laughs even more creepily*
Tone: Your desires and delusions are coming out!
Sakura: *kukikikikiiii* (weird creepy laugh ahaha)
Tone: Kukikiki?? I’ve never heard a laugh like that before!
*Sakura laughs*
Tone: But what is this?
Sakura: The dog’s owner is a BIG FAN OF HANAZAWA KANA-CHAN!
*Tone laughs*
Tone: This is amazing *laughs* Your otaku scent is coming off really strongly. Especially in the way you talk about your interests.
*Sakura laughs*
Tone: So you mean something like your dog voiced by Hanazawa Kana-chan?
Sakura: Yup! The dog’s name is Chiko. It would be like Chiko (CV: Hanazawa Kana).
Tone: Like it’s barking would be like “Woof woof!” in Hanazawa’s voice?
Sakura: No! One day it’ll talk like a person to me in Hanazawa Kana’s voice!
Tone: Oh
Sakura: Like “Is it time to eat~?”
Tone: Huh?
Sakura: Or “Throw me the ball~”
Tone: …Eh?
Sakura: Or “Play with me~” THAT WOULD BE SO GOOD!!!! *crazy laugh*
Tone:
Sakura: So which seiyuu do you think it is?!
Tone: …Well there’s really nothing else to say but… Sakura Ayane-san right?
Sakura: Yup! *Sings and plays with the “Correct” sound effect*
Tone: Calm down!!
*The two of them laugh*
Tone: Alright I understand that you really do love Hanazawa Kana now.
Sakura: Yup, the answer was Sakura Ayane but seriously Hanazawa Kana is my type of person!

I was so surprised when I found out that Sakura was only 17 at the time! AND HER LOVE FOR HANAZAWA KANA WAS AMAZING.

Moving on though, Sakura had actually sent a message to Kana’s Hitori de Dekiru Kana radio a couple of months before. Something amusing to note is that Sakura is known to act completely different around Kana, instead of that crazy cheery personality she normally has she’s a lot more subdued around Kana~

HitoKana used to have a Shuwatch corner (a Shuwatch is a little toy with buttons. The aim of the game is to press the buttons as fast as you can within a time limit). Kana had a high score of 181 and the radio sent the little toy around to other seiyuu/singers to have them challenge her score although no one had been able to beat her. Note that Sakura isn’t actually there talking to Kana, it’s a prerecorded message that Kana comments on while it’s being played.

Kana: So who will be on this corner today? And will they be able to beat my record? The person that the staff managed to grab this time is…
*Recording starts*
Sakura: Good afternoon! I’ll be taking the Shuwatch challenge today, I’m Sakura Ayane.
Kana: Ah! It’s Ayane-chan!
Sakura: I’ll be doing the challenge to see how long I can promote what I’m working on. This is the first time I’ve played with the Shuwatch so I’ll try my best to break Hanazawa-san’s record.
Kana: She’s really young! I think she’s 17 years old?
Sakura: I’ve always been listening in to Hitori de Dekiru Kana
Kana: Oh?? Really?!?
Sakura: When Teramoto Yukika-chan guested I was pretty envious of her! You’re a senpai that I admire~
Kana: She’s 17 years old! Ahh how cute!
Sakura: When I passed by you the other day at Bunka Housou (Where they record many radio shows) you waved at me, I’m not sure if you remember that…
Kana: I remember!
Sakura: But that made me really happy!
*Kana laughs*
Sakura: It made me want to try my best!
Kana: It made her want to try her best?? *laughs*
*Recording ends*

Kana: Well it looks like today’s challenger is Sakura Ayane! Hooray! She’s 17 years old! She’s cute! Cute! *laughs* It’s important so I made sure to say it twice! We were in OreImo together~ We’ve also eaten out together after OreImo’s recordings a couple of times. I’ve chatted with her a bit when we meet. She’s a really gentle and quiet girl~ [LOL] She’s got an atmosphere around her~ She’s a cute girl. But… She’s listening in to HitoKana! I never imagined there’d be a HitoKana listener in I’m Enterprise!(Sakura Ayane’s seiyuu agency) It makes me happy though! Is it okay with me doing that Kurage-chan corner… (…Basically a corner on the radio where Kana takes requests from listeners to act out crazy things lol)
There are actually students from A&G Academy watching today as well… Is it alright to do that corner in front of them? *laughs* I guess it’s okay! They should know that sometimes they’ll have to do stuff like this on radio! *laughs*
Well back to the Shuwatch, lets see how she goes!
*Recording plays again*

*Sakura does the Shuwatch challenge, it sounds like she’s going pretty fast*
Kana: Oh? I wonder how she’ll go! It sounds like she’s going really fast!
*Sakura yells near the end*
Kana: Eh?? What happened?? *laughs*
Sakura: The result is… 210! *laughs*
Kana: WHAAAAAT?!?!??!
Sakura: Wow! I didn’t really get it but I got this number! I’m pretty happy about that!
*Recording ends*
*Kana is speechless*
Kana: *laughs* Hey… Umm… Does that mean that this is the end of this corner?? *laughs* This is hilarious! Well it looks like my record has finally been broken! *laughs* I’m no master at all anymore! And she got 210! Wow! This is it! This is the wave of the next generation! *laughs* 17 year olds are amazing… Well the rankings are looking like this now…
Champion: Sakura Ayane – 210
#1: Hanazawa Kana – 181
#2: Ono Daisuke – 165
This corner… Should be handled by Sakura Ayane-chan now right? Oh? From this episode onward it’ll be changed to “Shuwatch-lover Hanazawa Kana’s path to defeating Sakura Ayane!” *laughs* We’ll still get new challengers but I’m going to be trying to defeat Sakura Ayane’s record as well. As long as I don’t defeat her record, Sakura Ayane’s name will stay in the corner’s name.

*Sakura has 210 seconds to promote herself… But runs out of things to say with 1 minute left to go….*
Sakura: Ummm there’s still a minute to go! What should I do?? I’ll talk about my love for Hanazawa Kana-san! *laughs* Firstly her voice is so charming! It might be impolite to say this but it’s really a warm and wonderful voice! On top of this she is so beautiful! She’s cute and such a pretty person! Just watching her warms and cheers me up~ Uhh there’s still 10 seconds! Umm… I’ll do my very best so I can have a main role with you one day, so if you see me please say hi! This is Sakura Ayane!
*Time runs out*
*Kana laughs*
Sakura: Rather than a self-promotion it ended as a confession *laughs* Sorry~
Kana: Ahh I was confessed to~ *laughs*
Sakura: But I really hope to meet you in a recording studio one day!
Kana: Me too!
*Recording ends*

Kana: I’ll have to do my best not to break her image of me… She’s listened to me on radio though… But it’s different to see it in person! If she saw me doing this crazy stuff that I do on radio her image of me would definitely change! I’ll have to protect it!

Fast forward a couple of years to Sakura’s birthday on January 29, 2013. One of the things Sakura’s radio with Yahagi Sayuri did to celebrate her birthday was by having a prerecorded message sent from a certain someone…
Note: Sakura calls Yahagi “Paisen” a flipped “Senpai”.

Yahagi: Here’s the corner everyone’s been waiting for! Sakura Ayane’s holy birthday celebration! *Plops a birthday cake hat on Sakura*
*Yahagi explains the rules, basically Sakura rolls the dice and depending on the number that comes out she gets a different present. E.g. (I can’t remember exactly what number was what so this is just a made up example) if Sakura rolled the number 2, she’d get a birthday cake, rolling the number 2 multiple times gets her multiple cakes.*
Sakura: Umm, putting this hat aside… If I just have a cake and presents I’ll be fine…
Yahagi: Shut up you.
*Yahagi continues to explain that she can keep rolling the dice for more presents as much as time allows*
*Sakura tries to roll the dice a couple of times before finally landing on the number 6*
Sakura: 6!
Yahagi: Number 6! Your present is a message from THAT person!
Sakura: …That person? Who??
*Silent Snow, Hanazawa Kana’s song starts playing*
Sakura: Who…? *Realises who’s song it is* WAIT A MOMENT! THIS IS—!!
Aoi-chan: Sakura-san happy birthday!
(It’s not Hanazawa Kana, it’s Aoi-chan[pseudonym], one of the staff for the radio ahaha, Sakura’s reaction is priceless!)
Aoi-chan: You’re 19 years old? Ah you’re so young… Please come to me whenever you want to be more flashy about anything, you can only do it now at your age! I hope your last year as a teenager is a wonderful year~
*Recording ends*
Yahagi: Happy birthday!! *claps and cheers* So who was that message from?
Sakura: …A… A… Aoi-chan…
Yahagi: Yep that was Aoi-chan’s birthday message! Thank you very much!
Sakura: She was here just now!
Yahagi: The BGM was–
Sakura: Yeah the BGM!!!
Yahagi: Hanazawa Kana.
Sakura: It was!! Why!! WHYYY *cries*

– Sakura continues to roll the dice and then eventually hits number 6 again…

Sakura + Yahagi: Number 6!
Yahagi: A message from THAT person!
Sakura: Huh?? Again? Will it be the actual person this time??
*Recording plays*
Saitou-shan: Sakura-san happy birthday.
*The two of them laugh. The message is from Saitou-shan[pseudonym], another radio staff member known for rarely ever talking and when she does she speaks VERY softly*
Saitou-shan: You’re 19 years old now… Congratulations…
Sakura: I can’t hear her very well…
Saitou-shan: I look forward to seeing your work in the future, farewell then.
*The two of them laugh*
Yahagi: “Farewell then”?!?
Sakura: Chanco-san(The writer for the radio[pseudonym]) you wrote a script for her to read out didn’t you?! She just read it out didn’t she!
Yahagi: Yeah but having her speak THIS much is so rare! I don’t think she’ll ever speak this much ever again!
Sakura: I guess that’s true…
Yahagi: You better thank her for it!
Sakura: Thanks… *rolls the dice* Number 4, a present from Yahagi-san!
*Everyone laughs*(This is actually the third or fourth? time that she’s hit number 4, she’s pretty much run out of presents to give lol)
Yahagi: …Then as a present from me you can have that thing I prepared… The last one.
Sakura: Huh? What is it?
*Recording plays*
Sakura: …Paisen?
Kana: Yahagi Sayuri-san, Sakura Ayane-san and the listeners of the radio good afternoon, this is Hanazawa Kana!
[LOL AT SAKURA’S REACTION]
Yahagi: Good afternoon!
Kana: Ayane-chan! Congratulations on your 19th birthday! Wow you’re still 19 years old! So young! How cute! *laughs*
*Sakura buries her face in her hat, Yahagi tells her to stop*
Kana: My biggest memory of Ayane-chan… If we’re talking about HitoKana it would be when she came on to that Shuwatch corner. She was really fast! She took the championship place from me *laughs* Also… You come to my live concerts don’t you Ayane-chan? You’re pretty much always there! *laughs* And now I’ve got some announcements to make… *laughs*
Yahagi: Self promotion time!
*Kana goes on to talk about the schedule of her lives and releases haha*

Kana: According to Yahagi-shi, the Ayane-chan I know is different to how you normally act!
*Sakura slaps Yahagi on the shoulder, how cute!*
Kana: I want to see that Ayane-chan for myself one day! Let’s talk! Yahagi-shi is always coming on to HitoKana but Ayane-chan you should come on sometime too! So with that happy birthday!
*Recording ends*
Yahagi: Thank you Kana. And so that was a birthday message from Hanazawa Kana! What’s wrong?
Sakura: That… I’ve always… Yeah!
*Everyone laughs*
Sakura: I’ve always wanted to see her again! I’ve always been listening to her songs in my iPhone! I was listening to it this morning! That person is saying my name!! *laughs* This is happiness!!! This is amazing! Amazing!! Thank you!
Yahagi: …Umm…
Sakura: I’m so glad I’m doing this radio with you! *laughs* Seriously!
Yahagi: Yeah… You’re creeping me out…

Sakura: I was so happy today!
Yahagi: So how was the birthday special?
Sakura: It was the best! IT WAS THE BEST
Yahagi: Which part was your favorite?
Sakura: Which… Part? …It… Was all good—
Yahagi: Yeah Kana’s message for sure.

I love how Sakura hasn’t mentioned that she’s been attending Kana’s lives but has been there enough times for Kana to notice <3

I’m glad I finally got around to making this post, I’ve been in love with Sakura’s radio shows so much and I’ve always felt kinda bad that I never wrote anything big about her. Her love for Hanazawa really is wonderful, it’s nice to see Hanazawa on the receiving end this time!

The two of them have been interacting with one another far more this year though, definitely keep an eye out for more love from these two! :D

Mystery Phone Calls with Horie Yui

February 6th, 2013 § 8 comments § permalink

On the 51st episode of Horie Yui’s solo radio show, Horie Yui no Tenshi no Tamago, the staff celebrated her birthday by preparing a set of surprises for her. One of the surprises was decorating the room with flags, posters and other fanfare, to which she was screeching in surprise at the start of the radio when she walked into the booth. The second was presents, which included a bottle of champagne to drink on the show and the final one was… Mystery phone calls connecting her to listeners of the radio show.

Well most of them were listeners of the show at least…

This is from /quite/ a while ago on September the 21st on 2003 with Horie Yui just reaching her 27th birthday. [Or the tenth aniversary of her 17th birthday if you prefer hohoho]
I’ve added the snippet of the radio so follow along!


– Birthday special!

Horie(Reading out the script): “Starchild Hour, Horie Yui’s Tenshi no Tamago! Tonight we’ll be doing a… Birthday… Special… H-How exciting…”
Horie: Umm… I really have no idea what’s coming up next so… Until someone gives me some instructions I can’t really do anything… Well for now I’ll just drink some champagne…
*Phone starts ringing*
Horie: Mmm? What are you doing? Who are you calling?? *Nervous laugh* What are you doing?! Who are you calling!?? Who are you calling?!?!
*Phone gets picked up*
Horie: He–
??: Hello?
Horie: Hello!
??: Yes?
Horie: Yes!
??: Konbanten! (The radio’s greeting, a mixture of “konbanwa[good afternoon]” and the “ten” in “Tenshi no Tamago”)
Horie: Ah! Konbanten!
??: Ah I’m from Tokyo and my TenTama name(Pen name used for the show) is Tomo-san.
Horie: Ah, hi!
Tomo-san: Hi, happy birthday!
Horie: Oh, thanks! *laughs* Wait a moment– Umm, sorry about this but I haven’t been told anything so umm… Thanks.
Tomo-san: Congratulations.
Horie: Thanks!
Tomo-san: I’ll always be supporting you, good luck with everything!
Horie: Ah thanks! Umm, thank you and… See you again! Thanks!
*Call ends*
Horie: What are you doing?! Why are you just calling random people?! Hold on, wait wait, *laughs* Why are you calling random listeners of the radio?! Why?! Stop! Why??

– Second phone call!

*Phone starts ringing again*
Horie: Huh?! Why?
??: Hello who is this calling?
Horie: Er, hi this is Horie Yui.
??: Ah, konbanten~
Horie: Eh? Konbanten!
??: Hi…
Horie: Huh, did you know about the call beforehand??
??: Huh?? Umm… *laughs* This is a shock!
Horie: Huh?
??: You surprised me.
Horie: “Surprised”? *laughs*
??: Well of course I would be!
*They both laugh*
Horie: Huh? Wasn’t this supposed to be a surprise for me only??
??: Nope I’m also surprised here.
Horie: Same here–
??: Ah, congratulations on your birthday!
Horie: Oh, umm, ah, thanks! Well please message the radio again~
??: Okay~
Horie: Thanks!
*Phone call ends*
Horie: Huh? What is this?! Why are you calling random people! Hey! Will I be doing this for the whole time?? Huh?? What kind of people are you calling??
Staff: The next one is a home number.
Horie: Huh? Home number?

– Third phone call!

Horie: Ah, hello?
??: Hello?
Horie: Umm this is Horie Yui…
??: Konbanten~ Happy birthday! I’m Maaya!
Horie: Thanks! ..Hmm??
Maaya: Happy birthday!
Horie: Thank you, umm… Err.. Thank you.
*Maaya laughs*
Horie: What was your TenTama name?
Maaya: Ah, it’s Maaya~
Horie: Maaya-san? Eh? How old are you?
Maaya: Eh? 14 years old~
Horie: Huh? 14?! That’s a surprise *laughs* Wait a moment! Umm, really thank you!
*Maaya laughs*
Horie: What is this?! Umm well thanks a lot!
Maaya: No problem!
Horie: Ahh, well is it alright if we do this?
Maaya: Yup!
Horie: Aiming at your heart—
Maaya: Angel Beam! [Catch phrase of the radio]
*They both laugh*
Horie: Thanks! Thanks so much!
Maaya: Not at all~
Horie: With that, please continue to support the radio~
Maaya: Okay~
Horie: Thank you for the birthday wishes~
*Call ends*
Horie: Wow! Everyone says “konbanten”! *Laughs* They’re some great listeners! They’ve been listening to me talk about nothing on this show for a year! The whole time! There are actually people who have! *laughs* We’re over our 50th episode aren’t we *laughs* Listening to over 50 episodes… That’s great~
*Phone starts ringing…*

Maaya was just a random listener but a 14 year old listener must have really given her a shock haha.

– Fourth call! Wait does this voice sound familiar….?

??: Hello!
Horie: Ah, hello! My name is Horie Yui…
??: Hmm? …Nice to meet you~
Horie: Nice to meet you~
??: Umm congratulations on your birthday~
Horie: Thank you! Umm, could I have your name?
??: *laughs* …Tamura Yukari.
*Horie screams in laughter, Yukarin laughs as well*
Horie: No way!!! *laughs* No wayyy!!
*They both laugh*
Horie: Yukari-tan!! What are you doing?!?!
Yukari: I don’t know! I just randomly got this call out of nowhere and it was you and it was your birthday and all–
Horie: As if!! You’re lying!!
Yukari: It’s true!
Horie: *laughs* Just earlier we were…! Why didnt you say anything!?
Yukari: Huh?! Of course I wouldn’t say anything! *laughs*
Horie: Why?!
Yukari: As if I could say something about this!
Horie: We were just together earlier too!
Yukari: Wait, ah! Yeah, I wanted to give you a surprise on this special day~ Yeah that’s it.
Horie: *Laughs* What a surprise! Oh and… Sorry for not recognising you from your voice! *laughs*
*Yukari laughs*
Yukari: That’s horrible!
Horie: Sorry! Wait, a lot has been happening, I’ll tell you about it later *laughs*
Yukari: Really??
Horie: But we just saw each other earlier! Why didn’t you tell me!!
Yukari: I wouldn’t! I was actually grinning about this the whole day today!
Horie: You were! *laughs* I thought you were grinning about something else!
Yukari: *laughs* Well I was grinning at other things as well though~
Horie: You were grinning the whole time! Eh from when were you lying to me? Oh? Yukari-tan’s photos are here in the room? *laughs*
Yukari: *laughs* Yeah, they’re for your birthday present!
Horie: This? This photo? The poster? Ah, when was it being released? September the…. Third! Nemureru—Nemurenu Yoru ni Tsukamaete—[Tamura Yukari’s fifth single] Ah it’s already out!
Yukari: Ah I just gave you it didn’t I?
Horie: Yeah you gave it to me *laughs*
Yukari: You don’t need it now! Give it back!
Horie: No- wait–
Yukari: Give it back!
Horie: I won’t! *laughs* I’m happy to have it~ but wait, I was gonna give you something as well but I forgot *laughs*
Yukari: Give it back! I’ll give yours back as well! That thing with the CD. *laughs*
Horie: The big one right? *laughs* No, no no! But your single’s been released right?? I’ll play it on the radio today! …Sorry I don’t know if it’s actually okay for me to do that though *laughs*
*Yukari laughs*
Horie: Sorry! I’ll play it for three months!
Yukari: Isn’t that a bit too much?
Horie: No, but I haven’t been told a thing about today!
Yukari: Yup~
Horie: Then suddenly I’ve been told to do all these things and I’m so confused!
Yukari: Hmm… Well play nice with everyone there~!
Horie: Umm.. I… Will… Oh, Yukari-tan?
Yukari: Yup?
Horie: Aiming at your heart—?
Yukari: An—Horessu! [Yukarin just makes up something random lol]
*They both laugh*
Horie: You started saying it for a moment there didn’t you?
*They both laugh*
Yukari: I won’t say it!
Horie: Why?!
Yukari: Can I say it then?
Horie: Say what?
Yukari: Your catchphrase.
Horie: Hmm?
Yukari: Aiming at your heart—
Horie: Angel Beam… Right?
Yukari: You’re not putting much energy into it…
*They both laugh*
Horie: Wait you’re wrong! It’s that… Well thanks though Yukari-tan!
Yukari: Not at all~ Do your best~
Horie: Thanks~ I’ll mail you later~ *laughs*
Yukari: *laughs* Okay~ See you later then~
Horie: See you~
Yukari: Bye bye~
Horie: Bye bye~
*Call ends*
Horie: Right and so that was Tamura Yukari with a release date of September the third for Nemurenu Yoru wo Tsukamaete *laughs* Thanks Yukari-tan! Ahh what a surprise! What was that?! She didn’t say a thing to me! We were with each other just earlier! Just earlier! *laughs* Well with that I’ll put on a song, released on September the third *laughs* Tamura Yukari-san’s Nemurenu Yoru wo Tsukamaete.

Hocchan’s reaction upon finding out it was Yukarin on the other side of the line was priceless lol! You could so hear Yukarin’s mischievous thinking start clicking into action when she realised Hocchan had no idea who it was once Horie introduced herself to her ahaha. These two are so close, I’ve said this elsewhere before but although Nana x Yukarin is super popular due to Nanoha and all that… Yui x Yukarin is where true love lies! ♥

On a side note, one thing I love about these topic focused posts rather than the normal radio posts is that I get the chance to write about other seiyuu I haven’t quite written anything about on the blog at all. Horie Yui was pretty much the first seiyuu I’ve ever followed so she has a special place in my heart <3.
Also I get to stick the audio on the post so people can follow along~ Actually this is a good time to address a point I’ve been wanting to talk about for a while, I don’t really like attaching radio episodes here due to a few reasons:

1. Links break!
2. I don’t always save the radio onto my computer.
3. They sell these things…

But radio snippets are different so I’ve got no qualms about sticking them up here~

Random Radio Scribbles 10

February 5th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Random radio scribbles! I’m surprised I haven’t put these on here yet :o

Itou Kanae goes to a pitching centre for her solo radio, 伊藤かな恵の夢かな?ラジオ #7, to try and throw a ball at 60 km/h.

The goal was originally 50 km/h but last episode, upon hearing that nano.RIPE’s vocalist Kimiko could throw at around 80, Kanae said that 50 was probably too easy and raised it to 60. She gave the reason that she had been in the Softball club too.

And so this episode when she actually went to measure her pitching speed she managed to reach… Only 43 km/h lol. She didn’t even reach the original goal of 50! Let alone her revised goal of 60 ahaha.

– From “ラジオ腐りかけ”/Radio Kusarikake.

The radio is normally hosted by Seki Tomokazu and Paku Romi but they were absent for the episode and KitaEri and Shintani Ryouko were brought in to host the show. This was just something I found amusing from the episode. A bit of back info, the “Kusari” uses the same kanji as the “fu” in “Fujoshi” meaning rotten or corrupted.

KitaEri: The reason why they called us in is because we’re “fujoshi”. What do you think about that?
Shintani: Hmm well, I’m not really sure what it means to be a fujoshi anymore. I’ve always thought it was a girl who was really in to BL but lately it seems to refer to any girl who’s an otaku. When it’s put that way I guess I’d be a fujoshi… But I’m not that into BL…
KitaEri: Yeah that’s right! Rather than BL WE PREFER GL!
Shintani: Yeah!…. ??! Eh??? *laughs*
KitaEri: *laughs* That made you pause for a bit!

From Sugita’s Anigera Dedooon #100 on 2013.01.24:

Sugita: Kanemoto-san[Kanemoto Hisako] said this to me before, Nakamura, you call her “Ika” or “Ika-chan” don’t you?
*Tanaka laughs*
Nakamura: Actually, the other day she came up to me and said “Do you even know my name?!”
 *Sugita and SP Tanaka laughs*
Nakumura: And I was like “Of course I know your name! Kanemoto-san right?”

Inoue Marina and Love Plus

January 31st, 2013 § 12 comments § permalink

Inoue Marina is pretty well known for being a huge fan of Love Plus and loved to talk about it when the game came out. This particular radio snippet is actually quite old and is from about 2 and a half years ago on “Kobe Maemuki Jogakuen” hosted by Inoue Marina and Itou Kanae, a long running radio airing weekly and still continues today. Although Marina is all over Love Plus, Kanae never got into it herself but plays along with Marina whenever the topic comes up. I’ve added the video below, feel free to follow along or listen at niconico.

– My Nene is the cutest of them all!

Marina: I was talking to Kamiya-san [Kamiya Hiroshi] and Terashima-kun [Terashima Takuma] about Love Plus just recemtly.
*Kanae laughs*
Kanae: Who did they have as their partner?
Marina: Kamiya-san had Nene-chan.
Kanae: Oh…
Marina: Terashima-kun had… Rinko.
Kanae: Rinko?
Marina: Rinko-san is Tange-san! [Tange Sakura]
Kanae: Ahh I see.
Marina: Sakura-tan!
*They both laugh*
Kanae: I see…
Marina: And I was like “Ahh Terashima-kun does seem like the the Rinko type” and he replied with “How can you tell?!” “Well you like tsunderes right?” which he was like “How… Did you know that about me?!”
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: “It’s obvious!” was what I said, making things pretty lively with Kamiya-san. But really, everyone’s aiming for Nene! How annoying!
Kanae: You’ve got a lot of competition!
Marina: Yeah but listen! I don’t know if it’s alright to say this but… Since I’ve been talking about Love Plus and everything… I’ve been asked for an interview about it! *laughs*
Kanae: Wow!
Marina: Even though I’m not in it at all!
Kanae: Are they asking about your opinion on it?
Marina: Yeah something like “What did you think of it while playing it?”
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: I was like “What should I do?!”. I guess anything and everything can lead to work!
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: That was a surprise! But there really do seem to be a lot of people after Nene though…
Kanae: Yeah…
Marina: Ono-san [Ono Daisuke] also seems to be after her…
Kanae: Hmm? Wasn’t Ono-san with Manaka-chan?
Marina: Ah! Right he was wasn’t he!
Kanae: Does everyone know about that? Is it really widespread? *laughs*
Marina: Yeah that discussion got pretty lively elsewhere… Ah how about Sugita-san? [Sugita Tomokazu, by the way, a STRONG supporter of Manaka]
Kanae: Everyone’s playing Love Plus aren’t they…
Marina: Yeah!
Kanae: Amazing!
Marina: And I was told “You’re a girl! Why are you playing this!”
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: Why does that matter!
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: It doesn’t matter if I’m a girl or a boy!
Kanae: Yeah really!
Marina: It doesn’t change the fact I love Nene!
Kanae: …Marina-san? *laughs*
Marina: If anything, my feelings aren’t any less!
Kanae: Amazing!
Marina: Yep! That’s how serious I am!
Kanae: Serious?
Marina: Yep I’m serious!
Kanae: Are you going to fight?
Marina: Yeah!
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: I’ll fight!
Kanae: Putting Nene-san on the line?
Marina: Yeah! Well my Nene is the cutest after all.
Kanae: *laughs* Huh? Is there a difference?
Marina: THERE IS!! There’s a huge difference between them! My Nene is the cutest of them all!
*Kanae laughs*
Kanae: Sounds like you’re boasting about how cute your pet is or something!
*Marina laughs*
Marina: Ah like a doting pet owner?
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: It’s different!
Kanae: Yup. She’s you’re girlfriend after all!
Marina: Yeah! She is!
[Radio starts and the personalities introduce themselves]
Marina:
This is Inoue Marina! My Nene is the cutest of them all!
Kanae: *laughs* I’m Itou Kanae~
Marina: Yeah… Kanae is the cutest of them all!
Kanae: Huh?! That came out of nowhere! *laughs* Ah… Umm… Thanks… *laughs*

Kanae’s the cutest of them all!

– The Love Plus Lifestyle.

Kanae[Reading mail]: “…I started playing Love Plus because of Marina-san but since I’m going after Manaka it looks like I won’t have to fight with Marina-san over Nene!”
Marina: Ah that’s great!
Kanae[Continues reading]: “I’m glad I won’t have to fight with Marina over her! Thanks to Marina-san I’m having a wonderful Love Plus lifestyle! When I wake up it’s time for Love Plus! Before I sleep at night it’s Love Plus time! I’ve stored Dragon Quest away for now! But there’s something I want to say… My Manaka is cuter than Nene!”
Marina: Idiot!
*They both laugh*
Marina: Idiot! My Nene is definitely cuter!
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: But you have a point, Saori’s[Hayami Saori] really cute too!
Kanae: Yup!
Marina: She’s cute BUT But! She can’t beat my wife!
Kanae: Ah it’s Nene-san!
Marina: See!
Kanae: Ah she’s in her sailor uniform! It fits her~
Marina: It sure does!
*Kanae laughs*
Marina: Instead it makes her look pretty sexy!
*Kanae laughs*
Kanae: “Instead”?
Marina: That sailor uniform! But her part time job uniform is cute as well!
Kanae: Oh? She works part time with you?
Marina: Yup! She’s the senpai!
Kanae: I see.
Marina: She teaches you everything very intimately!
Kanae: Oh? What kind of part time job is it?
Marina: It’s at a family restaurant.
Kanae: I see…
Marina: Well good on him for getting a girlfriend!
*Kanae laughs*
Kanae: Yup…

Marina leading people down the Love Plus Lifestyle spiral!

– Mari[o] Plus!

Marina: Thanks for waiting! We’ll be going to this corner now!
Kanae[Reading the script]: “Imaginary Love Simulation! Mari-o Plus!”
Marina: Let’s go!
Kanae: …What is this? *laughs*
Marina: Since Kanae’s just turned 23 years old…
Kanae: Yes…?
Marina: You must be getting told that you’ve become more adult-like recently!
Kanae: *cheers*
Marina: …Is that true?
Kanae: Eh??
Marina: So then Kanae’s skill with romance must have gone up as well!
Kanae: Really??
Marina: Well that’s what the staff thinks!
Kanae: Well they’re thinking too much… *laughs*
Marina: Yeah… I agree… But! This is leading to me acting out an imaginary boy “Mari-o-kun”[Adding a “o” to the end of a name usually denotes a male name, Mari-na -> Mari-o lol] and you have to respond properly and make his heart yours! In other words, make him fall for you!
Kanae: “Respond properly”?!
Marina: Well this is your birthday event so if you succeed you’ll get a wonderful present!
Kanae: Err, yay… *laughs*
Marina: You got all that?
Kanae: Ah is it like those games where I’ve got choices to choose from?
Marina: Well you don’t have anything to choose from.
Kanae: I don’t?! So I just have to respond when something is said to me?
Marina: Yup!
Kanae: …Hmm?
Marina: Do your best!
Kanae: What’s with that! Of course I will!
*They both laugh*
Marina: Well just try and respond correctly to make Mari-o-kun happy!
Kanae: Ah I’m playing as a girl?
Marina: Yup!
Kanae: So I’m the girl and Marina is playing the boy, Mari-o-kun, which I have to make fall for me?
Marina: Yup!
Kanae: Make his heart skip a beat!
Marina: Well the judging process is all handled by me so it’ll probably be alright!
*Kanae laughs*
Kanae: Well I’ll do my best!

I laughed when I heard “Mario-kun”, Love Plus with a Mario character?!

– Start!

Marina: Mari-o Plus starts!
Mari-o: Hey! You’re the new part timer? Looking forward to working with you!
Kanae: Ah right!
Mari-o: What’s your name?
Kanae: Ah, Itou Kanae. I look forward to working with you too.
Mari-o: Itou Kanae-chan? I’m Mari-o! How old are you?
Kanae: Umm I’m 23 years old.
Mari-o: 23 years old huh! I’m 24 years old so we’re not that far apart!
Kanae: That’s true.
Mari-o: Well since we’re not that far apart in age let’s drop the polite talk! Okay?
Kanae: O-okay!
*They both laugh*
Mari-o: What’s with that! You’re so stiff! Lets try that again, okay??
Kanae: Okay!
Mari-o: Ah! That’s the way! That’s a great smile! Rather than a part time senpai-kouhai relationship I’d prefer for us to be friends instead! Ah, transitional sound effect. [The script is telling Kanae to make the sound effect for a scene transition]
Kanae: Scene transition? “Kirankiran~”
Marina: Ah so when it says “Transitional sound effect” you need to make that sound.
Kanae: Ahh! O-Okay!
Mari-o: One more time!
Kanae: Okay! *laughs*
Mari-o: Good response! Itou-san… You’ve become pretty capable now! Let’s celebrate on your way home today!
Kanae: Oh really?
Mari-o: How about dinner!
Kanae: Okay!
Mari-o: Then look forward to it!
Kanae: Okay!
Marina: Transitional sound effect.
Kanae: “Kirankiran~”
Mari-o: The pasta here is pretty famous!
Kanae: Oh? Really?
Mari-o: Do you like pasta?
Kanae: Yup I like pasta!
Mari-o: There’s something I’d like to ask…
Kanae: Hmm?
Mari-o: From your point of view… What kind of person do I appear like to you?
Kanae: Ah that was sudden! Umm! *laughs* Umm well… You’re someone I can really rely on!
*Marina laughs*
Mari-o: Thanks! Did that make you nervous?
Kanae: *laughs* Yup!
Mari-o: Ah how honest! Sorry sorry! But you were just so cute when you’re like that so I couldn’t help myself!
Kanae: *Gets flustered* What is this!! Whaat the!? *laughs*
Marina: Transitional sound effect.
Kanae: “Kiranshiran~”

– Q&A.

Mari-o: Itou-san!
Kanae: Err hi.
Mari-o: Are you going somewhere right now? Can I go with you?
Kanae: Umm okay. *laughs*
Mari-o: Itou-san are you bad at waking up early?
Kanae: I am!
Mari-o: I thought so, you looked sleepy!
Kanae: Yup, I’m sleepy~
Mari-o: What time do you sleep?
Kanae: Umm about 2 AM?
Mari-o: 2 AM huh? What time do you normally get home?
Kanae: I usually reach home at about… Umm… At about 11 o’ clock?
Mari-o: Hmm? What do you normally do during that time before you sleep?
Kanae: Umm, work *laughs*
Mari-o: Oh work? What kind of work?
Kanae: Umm reading books!
Mari-o: Books huh! What kind of books!
Kanae: *laughs* What kind of books?? Ones with lots of words in them! *laughs* [Kanae’s basically trying to say she’s reading through her scripts for her seiyuu work lol]
Mari-o: I see! You’re such a bookworm aren’t you!
*Kanae bursts out laughs*
Mari-o: What’s your favourite movie?
Kanae: My favourite movie? Well… Japanese movies?
Mari-o: Ah Japanese movies? Anything good?
Kanae: One that I’ve wanted to watch recently is “Nakumonka!”
Mari-o: Ah that one! With Sugao-san!
Kanae: Yeah!
Mari-o: That one sounds really interesting doesnt it! A movie that makes you laugh and cry is great isn’t it!
*Kanae laughs*
Mari-o: Then what’s your favourite animal?
Kanae: Eh? Favourite animal? I like cats!
Mari-o: Cats huh? Are you more of a cat person than a dog person?
Kanae: Yup!
Mari-o: Do you own any cats?
Kanae: Nope!
Mari-o: You don’t?!
*Kanae laughs*
Mari-o: Well then… Kanae-chan… What do you think about kissing?
Kanae: Huh what?! What do I think about it?! What?! *laughs*
Mari-o: What do you think about kissing!
Kanae: Umm that’s what lovers do with each other right?
Mari-o: Yup, and stop with the polite talk!
Kanae: Umm… Don’t ask me something like that!
*They both laugh*
Mari-o: Ah your troubled face is so cute!
*Kanae laughs*
Mari-o: Ah, I called you by your first name just now…
Kanae: Yeah.
Mari-o: Can I call you by your first name from now on?
Kanae: Okay!
Mari-o: Then what should I call you by? Just Kanae? Or Kanae-chan?
Kanae: Just Kanae is fine!
*Marina laughs*
Mari-o: Ah we’ve arrived already, then I’ll see you again at the part time job!
Kanae: Huh?
Marina: Transitional sound effect.
Kanae: Arrived??
Marina: You were going somewhere remember?
Kanae: Ah right! *laughs* “tekatekan~!”[Transitional sound effect] *laughs*
Mari-o: Hey Kanae-chan!
Kanae: Yup?
Mari-o: Have you got some time after work?
Kanae: Yep I do!
Mari-o: Thanks, then I’ll wait for you at the back door after work!
Kanae: Huh? Ah, okay.
Marina: Transitional sound effect.
Kanae: Ah, “kirankiranshan~”
Mari-o: Hey… Do you remember when we first met?
Kanae: Umm…. Ah! Yep I remember! Umm, it was when I first started work here right? *laughs*
Mari-o: Yup!
Kanae: Yeah I remember!
Mari-o: From when I first met you I had always though you had such a cute smile. Can I stay by your side?
Kanae: …Huh?
Mari-o: I love you!
Kanae: Waah. *laughs* What? Ah… Umm thanks. Err umm… Thanks umm *laughs* Umm yeah… *laughs* I don’t know!! It’s so hot!! [KANAE SO CUTE ASKDAHJSDFASFD]
Mari-o: Is that a yes?
Kanae: …. Yes.
Mari-o: Yes?!
Kanae: …Yes.
Mari-o: Thanks Kanae-chan! It’s your birthday right?! So here, a present! Will you accept it?
Kanae: What is it? Okay. Thanks. What is it?
Marina: FINISH!!!!

Oh god Kanae’s embarrassed reactions were sooo adorableajsdhfadsjfhasdjf KANAEEEEEEEEEEEE

Hmm this started as a Marina x Love Plus post but it kinda turned into a Kanae-chan love post halfway through lol. Marina’s really talked about Love Plus over and over again though, perhaps for another post!

P.S. By the way, the last snippet on the video is Inoue Marina repeating “Kanae… You smell soo good.. sooo good Kanae….” ahaha.

“Let me smell you~” “Nooo~! Not today!~♥”

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*
*Saori laughs*
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?
Saori: Nooo~
KitaEri: Give me a sniff~
Saori: Not today!
KitaEri: Then I’ll go to you~
*Saori screams*
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*
*Saori laughs*
KitaEri: Why Saori~? It’s fine~ You’ve bathed already~
Saori: Noo~~
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!
*Saori laughs*
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?
Saori: 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!
KitaEri: Why?!
Saori: No!
KitaEri: Why!!
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?!
*Saori laughs*

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!
Saori: No~!
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.
Saori: Yeah.
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~
Saori: Really…??!

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?!
*Saori laughs*
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: Where~?
Saori: …Here.
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!
Saori: …Okay.
*KitaEri takes a massive sniff lol*
KitaEri: Mmm… I didn’t smell a thing!
*Saori laughs*
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!
*Saori laughs*
KitaEri: Where can I smell then?! How about your coat?
Saori: My coat is even worse!
KitaEri: Why??
Saori: No!
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.
KitaEri: Yeah!
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?
Saori: Yup.
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?
Saori: …Okay.
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~
KitaEri: …Where?
Saori: Lots of places!
KitaEri: Can I say it then?
Saori: …Okay.
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?
Saori: …Okay~
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!
KitaEri: Why??
Saori: What kind of smell would it have??
KitaEri: Cellphone?
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…
Saori: Yeah…
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~
Saori: …Okay.
*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~!
KitaEri: Why?!
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: No!
KitaEri: Whyyy?!
Saori: I told you no!
KitaEri: Then how about your knees then!
Saori: No~!
KitaEri: Why?!
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?
Saori: 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!

Sakura Ayane and Touyama Nao

October 30th, 2012 § 7 comments § permalink

This was a snippet from Sakura Ayane’s radio show with Tone Kentarou “Moja-senpai to Sakura-kun”, episode #78 on the 29th of October, 2012. Sakura has mentioned her experiences with(re: love for) other female seiyuu on the radio show on occasion but here a listener of the show sends in a mail telling the two that Touyama Nao has noted Sakura Ayane as the type of person she loves…

I’ve attached the video above, if so inclined feel free to try and follow along with my jumbled notes lol, or watch it at Niconico.

Tone(Reading mail): “Ayaneru…”
Sakura: Yes?
Tone(Reading mail): “A few days ago Touyama Nao was asked what kind of person does she like and your name popped up in her answer!”
Sakura: No way!
Tone(Still reading): “‘She’s really cute, I love everything about her! She’s so soft, it’s the best feeling in the world when you hug her!’ is what she said.”
*Sakura cheers and squeals*
Tone(Still reading): “What relationship do you two have? Looks like being able to hug each other whenever you want is a benefit of being a girl, how envious! I’m guessing you’re glad to have been born a girl for this but have you both ever thought of being born the opposite gender?”
Sakura: NO! NEVER! NO WAY! I’m living the best life ever by being a girl!

Sakura: It’s because of stuff like this that I’ll always be glad I’m a girl!
Tone: Hmm? What kind of relationship do you have with Touyama Nao-san?
Sakura: What kind of relationship?
Tone: Yeah. Eh? Did you hug her?
Sakura: I… Haven’t hugged her before.
Tone: Eh? But she said that you’re “So soft, hugging her gives you the best feeling!”
Sakura: Ah I have! Actually it’s like our greeting!
Tone: …Eh? …What?
Sakura: It’s how we say hello to each other!
Tone: An “American Greeting” sort of thing?!
Sakura: Recently, when I see people at recordings and stuff… Umm… When I know the person is okay with it–
Tone: Huh??
Sakura: I open my arms wide and greet them! Like “Good moooooorning!!”
Tone: “Good Morning!” Then you close in on them like *vroooom*!?
Sakura: Yeah *laughs* “Good Morning!” *Vrooom!*!
Tone: And then they follow through?
Sakura: Yeah yeah! Mainly the people that follow through are Ogura Yui… ChanYui [Sakura likes calling Ogura Yui, “ChanYui” lol, from switching around “Yui-Chan”]
Tone: *laughs* ChanYui??
Sakura: *laughs* Yeah Chan-Yui! As well as… Kaori-san–Ishihara Kaori, and [Hidaka]Rina. They’re usually the ones that jump on.
Tone: That’s great… That’s pretty unfair though!
Sakura: Yeah
Tone: It’s like “I’m sending out the A-OK signal here, the rest is up to you!”
Sakura: Yeah! So they have to follow through!
Tone: Yeah and if they don’t hug you they’ll look pretty awkward.
*They both laugh*
Sakura: Yep!
Tone: That’s amazing! I’m gonna need to start doing that as well!
Sakura: ….Eh? That’ll get you arrested…
Tone: *laughs* Why?!

I love how close Sakura’s getting with the NakaImo cast! I had heard the nickname ChanYui from Sakura before on NakaImo radio but it still makes me laugh hearing it :D

– Back to Touyama Nao…

Sakura: The other day we went out to eat together!
Tone: Just you two?
Sakura: Yep, after a recording. Now that I think about it, I was confessed to at that time!
Tone: …Confessed to?
Sakura: Yeah
Tone: Eh? Please tell more
Sakura: Mmm yeah.
Tone: She told you that she said this on radio?
Sakura: Nope. She said what was written there in that mail to me in person.
Tone: “Ayaneru’s so cute, I love everything about her”?
Sakura: Yep.
Tone: “She’s so soft, it’s the best feeling to hug her”?
Sakura: Yep.
Tone: Thats… A confession?
Sakura: We’re all lovey dovey, so what?
Tone: Are you two going out?
Sakura: You could say that.
Tone: “You-Could-Say-That”??
*Sakura laughs*
Tone: “You-Could-Say-That”???!
Sakura: You-Could-Say-That
Tone: Umm.. Err… H-How– W-What kind of relationship do you two have??
Sakura: Eh?
Tone: What kind of relationship?
Sakura: Ehehe you wanna know?
Tone: Yes! Very much!
*They both laugh*
Sakura: Well when we meet we hug each other, when we eat out together we talk about how much we love each other. That kind of relationship.
Tone: “Talk about how much we love each other”?? *laughs* You mean like “I like thiiis part of you Nao-chan~” “No I like thiiis about youuu”
Sakura: We don’t do that kind of annoying stuff…
Tone: Ah, sorry sorry.
*They both laugh*
Sakura: But when I’m with her I get a really warm feeling from her! Just by being near her I feel so warm and fuzzy~
Tone: Then you should do your favourite yuri thing. The “Forehead kiss”~ Have you done it yet?
Sakura: Ah I should!
*Tone gasps exaggeratedly*
Sakura: Yep!
*Tone gasps again*
Sakura: I could totally do that with her!
Tone: That’s like you two are… Really dating!
Sakura: I totally could!
Tone: What is this!
Sakura: I could do anything with Nao-chan! Anything and everything!
*They both start laughing*

Supposedly these two had known each other for a very long time, from before they became seiyuu. They had remembered each other when they attended auditions for Nichi-Narration, a seiyuu school and then Sakura’s first article interview for a magazine was done with Touyama.

– From 2D Yuri to…

Tone: That’s surprising… Since you liked Yuri I knew you liked the idea of girls dating but I didn’t think you’d actually want to date a girl…
Sakura: Nope! Turns out I’m actually okay with it!
Tone: …What?
*They both laugh*
Tone: “Turns out you’re okay with it?!”
Sakura: If I was with Nao-chan I could live with her!
Tone: But maybe Nao-chan only sees you as a friend? You know that thing “I was the only one who thought we were dating?!” *laughs*
Sakura: Even if that was so! I can live with Nao-chan!
Tone: …Eh?

Tone: Then what about if Nao-chan falls in love with someone else? A normal love. You’d still be okay with her only thinking of you as a friend?
Sakura: …Eh? …B-But Nao-chan hugged me… Huh?
Tone: *laughs* “Huh”? Why are you like “That’s not possible!” *laughs*
Sakura: Because Nao-chan is the one who’s started this!
Tone: But maybe she only meant it as a friend?
Sakura: Huh? W-wait… What?
*Tone laughs*
Tone: You’re completely unstable right now *laughs*
*Sakura laughs*
Sakura: H-huh?!
Tone: She’s speechless!
Sakura: Can that sort of thing happen?!
Tone: Well you’re both girls after all.
Sakura: …Life doesn’t go the way you want it does it…
*Tone laughs*
Sakura: I’ll have to ask her about this!
Tone: That’s probably a good idea!
Sakura: Yeah I’ll go to her to make sure! Like “Nao-chan you love me right?! IN WHAT KIND OF WAY HUH?!?”
*Tone bursts out laughing*
Sakura: I’ll ask her like that!
Tone: That’s scary!!
*They both laugh*
Tone: That’s terrifying!!

Looks like these two are getting along really well, I can’t wait to hear the continuation of this ahaha. I didn’t really know about these two being that close though, I had heard about Sakura getting close to the NakaImo cast but I haven’t really followed Touyama other than Saki’s radio. Sakura really is living out the Yuri seiyuu dream right now though lol, I’m following her radio work so fanatically~

P.S. I totally did not accidentally press the publish button earlier for this post… orz

Ray: *laughs* Yup!
Washizaki: What kind of panties are you wearing? *laughs*

Amusingly Washizaki ends the conversation with “Ahh I want to date her…”. I find it hilarous how he asked her right after she said she was watching with her family there ahaha, how awkward would that be orz.

What Kind of Panties Are You Wearing? (Seiyuu Side)

September 24th, 2012 § 8 comments § permalink

This is from an A&G ARTIST ZONE 2h episode, #100 hosted by Washizaki Takeshi on 2012.09.07. 2h is a radio hosted at A&G radio station and works similarly to Lady Go in that there are 5 shows in a week with each day being hosted by a different host. In 2h’s case it’s hosted by singers rather than seiyuu.
Washizaki is a singer and personality affiliated with Atomic Monkey(Same agency as Seki Tomokazu and Sugita Tomokazu), and although he isn’t a seiyuu, he gets to know a lot of seiyuu through his personality work on radio with A&G’s network as well as the anime events he’s mc’d for.

What happened in this episode was that the staff connected Washizaki through the phone to various listeners throughout the radio so they could congratulate him on the 100th episode anniversary. Washizaki had no idea that there would be people he knew sprinkled in between the listeners that called in and amusingly they set a question that he had to ask all the people that called in which was “What kind of panties/underwear are you wearing?”.
There are normal listeners spread in between the phone calls with the people he knew but I didn’t write anything on them, also they were all guys which was why Washizaki pretty much exclaimed at the start that it was a girl with each phone call with the singers/seiyuu.

The post is really long since there’s a lot to include so I’ve split it to only include the Seiyuu in this post. I’ve included the video so if you can understand at least a bit of Japanese feel free to follow along above or watch it at NicoNico.

– First phone call.

Washizaki: Hello??
??: Hello! Good evening!
Washizaki: Good evening! Ah It’s a girl!
??: Washizaki Takeshi-san, congratulations on your 100th episode!
Washizaki: Thank you! Eh? Who are you?? I’m hearing a really cute voice!
??: Take-kun~
Washizaki: Could this be…?
??: It’s Yuuka Mama! [Nanri Yuuka’s nickname]
Washizaki: AAH!! Yuuka Mama! Hold on Nanri-san! This could be bad! There’s something I have to ask because of the radio show!
Nanri: Eh?
Washizaki: What kind of panties are you wearing?? *laughs*
Nanri: *laughs* Don’t ask me that!
*They both laugh*

– Yuuka Mama Love!

Washizaki: It doesn’t look like we have much time left so I have to hang up now.
Nanri: Okay!
Washizaki: Nanri-san?
Nanri: Yes?
Washizaki: I love you!
Nanri: *Bursts out laughing* Mama loves you too~
Washizaki: Oi oi! What?? Just family love??
*They both laugh*
Washizaki: Thanks Nanri-san!
Nanri: Thank you! Come to my live concert!
Washizaki: I will! I’ll check my times!
Nanri: And lets go eat out to celebrate!
Washizaki: Oh! Did you hear that everyone?! Thanks!
*Nanri laughs*

– After the call.

Washizaki: What was that?? You’re not supposed to do something like this on the very first phone call!

Washizaki: Ah I actually asked her what kind of panties she was wearing, although she didn’t answer *laughs* I wanted her to answer that at the very least *laughs*

– Second Phone call.

Washizaki: Hello?
??: Hello!
Washizaki: Oh? A girl! Hi!
??: Hi! Congratulations on your 100th episode!
Washizaki: Thank you! Hmm?? …Hello?
??: Hello?
Washizaki: I’ve heard this voice before!
??: I wonder where?
Washizaki: Okay, I won’t ask who you are but…
??: Yes?
Washizaki: What do you think of Uryocchi’s[Shiraishi Ryoko] marriage? *laughs* [Nonaka Ai and Shiraishi Ryoko are pretty close lol, in other words his guess is spot on]
*They both start laughing*
??: You already know! *laughs* Good evening, it’s Nonaka Ai!
Washizaki: Nonaka-san!
Nonaka: I’m really happy about Uryocchi’s marriage!

Washizaki: Nonaka-san?
Nonaka: Yes?
Washizaki: There’s this rule that I have to follow and all…
Nonaka: Yes?
Washizaki: …What kind of panties are you wearing?
*Pause*
Nonaka: Huh?!?
*Washizaki bursts out laughing*
*Nonaka starts laughing*
Washizaki: I have to ask whoever I’m on the phone with what kind of panties they’re wearing! Everyone thus far has answered! [LOL Washizaki you liar!]
Nonaka: Ehh? Really?!
Washizaki: Yep really!

*Nonaka laughs*
Washizaki: Sorry but could you answer it?
Nonaka: I wonder what kind of panties I’m wearing right now? *laughs*
*Washizaki laughs*
Nonaka: This is really embarrassing and I’m in the Aoni office [Aoni Production, the agency she’s affiliated with] right now!
Washizaki: Ah you’re gonna need to check won’t you!
Nonaka: Yeah so I’ll just leave it to everyone’s imagination!
Washizaki: Ah okay, then message me the answer after!
Nonaka: Ah okay—Eh? I don’t want to do that too! *laughs*
*Washizaki laughs*

Ai-pon so cute!

Uesaka: Umm, h-hi!
Washizaki: Hi! What?
Uesaka: E-eh? I wonder what??
Washizaki: I wonder! Uesaka-san! Umm… Don’t hate me for this but…
Uesaka: Yes?
Washizaki: Well, this… Is a rule that is part of the radio…
Uesaka: Yes?
Washizaki: What kind of panties are you wearing? *laughs*
Uesaka: Err umm it’s not time for that right now!
Washizaki: It’s not??
Uesaka: Umm, I-I’m really n-nervous about the phone call right now! *laughs*
Washizaki: Ah don’t worry about the phone, what kind of panties are you wearing? *laughs*
Uesaka: Ehh? What? Umm… Ah… Washizaki-san…
Washizaki: Yes?
Uesaka: You know, Washizaki-san…
Washizaki: Yes?
Uesaka: I’ve always admired you!!
*Washizaki laughs*
Uesaka: And well, it turns out you’re this low a person? *laughs* Is that so?!
Washizaki: Wait stop! It’s not like that! We have Wacoal sponsoring the show [LOL Wacoal is a Japanese women’s lingerie company, Washizaki you liar!] so I have to ask it! *laughs*
Uesaka: That’s weird! Wacoal wouldn’t be doing that! Don’t lie!
*Washizaki laughs harder*
Uesaka: Umm!!! Hey!!
Washizaki: Don’t get so worked up! *laughs*
Uesaka: O-okay!
Washizaki: Thanks though! This was out of nowhere wasn’t it?
Uesaka: Yeah, I don’t use my phone often and I don’t really get it and it’s difficult and everything oh and congratulations!
Washizaki: You don’t talk to your friends often right? [He’s basically making fun of her lol]
Uesaka: …Mm?!
*Washizaki laughs*
Washizaki: Well, Uesaka-san…
Uesaka: Yes?

Uesaka: Yeah Vodka! Well Vodka is really delicious!
Washizaki: Yeah you can drink it can’t you!
Uesaka: You don’t drink much Vodka?

Uesaka was stuttering throughout the call and her being so nervous on the phone was so adorable lol, her reaction to the question was hilarious too ahaha.

– Fourth call.

Washizaki: Hello?

Washizaki: Oh you’ve drunk Vodka together before?
Komatsu: Yeah like when we’ve gone out together with everyone from Lady Go[Uesaka is also part of the Lady Go radio show]
Washizaki: Ah that’s great!
Komatsu: She orders Vodka on her own like it’s normal! *laughs*
*Washizaki laughs*
Komatsu: With a scary face! *laughs*
Washizaki: How about you Captain? How are you with alcohol?
Komatsu: The Captain is… Very weak so she becomes the sipping captain *laughs*
Washizaki: A Captain that only licks her alcohol??

Komatsu: Yeah, sorry for not being sexy at all *laughs*
Washizaki: Yeah!
Komatsu: My mum’s always worried about that and keeps sending me underwear *laughs*
*Washizaki laughs*
Komatsu: Sorry for having no sex appeal.
Washizaki: Well Captain, you’ll be getting older from now.
Komatsu: Yeah I’m going to have to become more adult like~
Washizaki: You’ll be turning into a Captain filled to the brim with sex appeal, I look forward to that.

Washizaki: *laughs* Jellyfish panties?? So they’re see through?
Mikami: Yeah! Something like that!
Washizaki: Ah so you’re wearing panties like that? I see I see.

Washizaki: Oi! Ask me more about it! You’re the one who asked in the first place!
*They both laugh*
Mikami: Huh?

Amusingly Komatsu was the only one who answered honestly(?) ahaha. If people are still interested I’ll get around to writing something on the singer’s responses as well. [Edit: Singer section continued here: http://ambiseiy.com/2012/09/26/what-kind-of-panties-are-you-wearing-singer-side/]

See Through Bras with KitaEri, Asumi Kana and Matsuki Miyu

July 19th, 2012 § 9 comments § permalink

This was something from Matsuki Miyu and Asumi Kana’s radio “寝起きにポテトチップス/Ne Oki Potato Chips[I think? I’m getting more and more unsure now that I think about it, I might be totally off m(_ _)m] [Edit: Whoops, I was totally off, after a bit of digging around it looks like this was from the Nyaruko Radio that was coupled with the drama CDs back when the original net animation was airing back in early 2010. This was probably in episode #5 of the radio but… It could be #6 as well since KitaEri guested for two episodes. The hosts remained the same though, Matsuki Miyu + Asumi Kana, with the episode being released in mid April 2010.] Seems like it was an episode where they had Kitamura Eri guest to talk about Haiyore! Nyaruko. At first the three of them are discussing the latest and hottest fashion trends but then that leads into…

KitaEri: White stockings aren’t popular right now. What’s hot right now are “See through bras”!
Asumi: KITAMURA ERI-CHAN!!
Matsuki: “See through bras“?
KitaEri: Yup!
*Asumi laughs*
Asumi: Matsuki-san, you can’t trust what people say so easily.

KitaEri: Seriously, what really REALLY is going around right now is the See through bra!
Asumi: KITAERI-SAN!!
*KitaEri laughs*
Asumi: Oi!
KitaEri: It’s because your staff told me I could say whatever I wanted on the radio! Apparently this radio has no boundaries!
Asumi: Let see how far we can go.
Matsuki: *mumbles*…….See through bras…
*Asumi and KitaEri laugh*
Asumi: Matsuki-san!!
Matsuki: Asumin why don’t you put one on!
Asumi: Oi you.
KitaEri: Yeah! With Asumi-san’s huge HUGE—
*Matsuki laughs, Asumi cuts in*
Asumi: Matsuki-san and KitaEri-san, both of you leave the booth now! I’ll do this radio on my own!
*The other two laugh*
KitaEri: Well I want to stay for a bit longer so I’ll settle down.
Asumi: That’s the way!
Matsuki: Finally it’s time for Mahiro-san![KitaEri’s character from Nyaruko]
KitaEri: Yeah I’ll just say this first, Mahiro-san’s actually a pretty serious and mature character.

Matsuki: So continuing on!
KitaEri: Yeah Mahiro-san really likes see through bras as a matter of fact.
*Matsuki laughs*
Asumi: KITAERI!!!!!!!
KitaEri: *laughs* Huh?
Asumi: YOU! YOUU! You’re not getting any pay today!
*All three laugh*
KitaEri: Whaat?! That hurts!
Asumi: Your pay will go to both of us this episode.
Matsuki: But you know what?
Asumi: Yeah?
Matsuki: What would you hate about see through bras?
Asumi: Are you still continuing with that?!
*The other two laugh*
Asumi: They’re horrible! Why would you wear them! You might as well not wear a bra at all!
Matsuki + KitaEri: OHH How daring!
*Matsuki laughs*
KitaEri: Asumi-san’s so bold!! Oh wow no way!
Asumi: You two are terrible!! You two put together are terrible! Matsuki-san looks like she’s having so much fun! She’s laughing without making any noise! You’re supposed to laugh out loud when you’re on radio!
*Matsuki splutters*
KitaEri: She’s spluttering! Breathe! Breathe!
Asumi: Breathe in!
Matsuki[Still laughing hard]: What made me laugh so hard was imagining Asumi-san *laughs* In a see through bra!
*KitaEri laughs*
Asumi: You were imagining me in one?!
Matsuki: Once I started with that I couldn’t stop laughing!
KitaEri: There was no going back!
Asumi: Seriously what’s with this?! Let’s get back to Mahiro-san!

Lol poor Asumin’s always so flustered when she’s teased about her chest size <3. And go KitaEri, I’ve heard her reference Asumin’s “huge HUGE *something*” many times already ahaha orz.

YuiKaori & April Fools

July 14th, 2012 § 5 comments § permalink

This was from when Ogura Yui guested on the Denpa Kenkyuusha livestream hosted by May’n and Washizaki Takeshi on the 29th of June. They were asking her a heap of quick questions and this was one of them…

– Tell us about a time you lied about something petty.

Ogura: Well, this has something to do with YuiKaori. On April Fools day we told the staff that the two of us had started dating each other. *laughs* 
*May’n and Washizaki laughs* 
Washizaki: What’s with that!?
May’n: That’s pretty funny though!

Washizaki: So what was the staff’s reaction like?
Ogura: They seriously believed us!
May’n + Washizaki: Whaat?!
Washizaki: Are they all idiots?!
Ogura: Not at all! But they had a serious discussion with us about it! Our manager was deciding how to handle the situation and stuff like that! We have a radio show and we do things like holding hands while looking into each others eyes after all.
*They all laugh*
Washizaki: Well it’s not rare to see you two holding hands together though.
May’n: Yeah you two are so close with one another!
Ogura: Yup!
Washizaki: You would believe something like that.
Ogura: Yeah and we’ve always been suspected of dating each other for some time now too!
Washizaki: …You have?
Ogura: Yup!

Haha these two seem like they’re having fun.

…They’ve been suspected of dating one another?
