oreimos2Name: 俺の妹が(ラジオでも)こんなに可愛いわけがない。
Hosts: Taketatsu Ayana, Hanazawa Kana
Date: 2013.04.11

The long awaited radio for Oreimo’s second season! Amusingly they didn’t announce the radio beforehand until barely before the radio had started airing… Or had it already started airing? I can’t quite remember but I do remember being so sad that there might not be a second season of the radio till it was announced at the last minute!

– Right from the start!

Ayana: Ka~na~-chan!
Kana: Yes~?
Ayana: *giggles* I just wanted to say your name!
Kana: Ahhh!!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Kana-chan you try it!
Kana: A~ya-chi~!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Yes~~?
Kana: I just wanted to say your name!
*They both burst out laughing*
Ayana: What’s with this conversation?! *laughs* But our conversations were like this weren’t they~
Kana: They were~

Ayana: It’s been over a year and a half…
Kana: It’s been that long…?
Ayana: It has… Time really flies.
Kana: How old are you now?
Ayana: I’m 23!
Kana: Ooh~ You’re not a loli anymore!
Ayana: Thats true! I’m an ex-loli!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Ex-loli?!
Kana: An ex-loli!
Ayana: How old are you now?
Kana: I’m 24~
Ayana: Time really does fly by!
Kana: It does!! Well I wasn’t a loli when we started the radio though.
Ayana: Ah right, you were 22 at the time!

And we’re right back in this love dovey atmosphere <3

– Last season’s radio…

Kana: It’s been almost two years now.
Ayana: There may be people who are listening in for the first time as well so we’d like them to hear bits of the previous radio to let them know what it was like.
Kana: Yup, even we don’t remember what happened in the last radio season.
Ayana: Hmm? What do you remember from it?
Kana: Pafupafu! [I can’t remember if I wrote something about this but basically… Actually instead of me dancing around the explanation for this there’s a wikipedia article for this lol “Puff puff (ぱふぱふ pafu pafu) comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for a woman rubbing her breasts in someone’s face”]
Ayana: Huh? Pafu pafu?? Oh something to do with boobs?
Kana: Yup! We were talking about it and I was like “What’s this?! I want someone to do that to me!”. I remember being pretty worked up about that.
*Ayana laughs*
Kana: I said something like “Ayachi! Do it to me!”… Or I think I did.
Ayana: Did you? You did!
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: Ahh! We got pointlessly worked up over that didn’t we!
Kana: Yeah— Wait it wasn’t pointless!
Ayana: Huh?
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Ah it wasn’t pointless!
Kana: It wasn’t!

– Taketatsu and people around her has been using the “tktt” abbreviation for herself, she mentions that a makeup artist she works with has “tktt Make up” written in her schedules instead of her name haha.

– The radio starts playing a snippet from the first episode where they introduce themselves to each other and they laugh at how shy and nervous they were!

Kana: That was the first episode!
Ayana: It was?
Kana: Yup.
Ayana: We really were feeling out each other so much at the time!
Kana: We got so close so fast in just two years!
*They laugh*
Ayana: We were like “I look forward to working with you~”
Kana: Yeah!
Ayana: We were using formal speech!
Kana: Well that’s to be expected though! That was pretty much our first time meeting!
Ayana: I think we met once in an Oreimo drama CD recording and then this was quite a while after.
Kana: Yeah
Ayana: We didn’t get to talk much during the drama CD recording as well.
Kana: Yeah getting to know each other in a recording booth is hard.
Ayana: Yeah, it’s work after all.
Kana: Yeah…
Ayana: We had an interview for Oreimo radio right? How many episodes in were we when we did that?
Kana: Hmm I wonder…
Ayana: I think it was after a few episodes… I think I remember being in something short sleeved.
Kana: Ah you might have been! So it must have been summer!
Ayana: I saw pictures from that on the net recently and I was startled by how chubbier I was then!
*They both laugh*
Kana: You weren’t chubby!
Ayana: I was so chubby in the past! When I look back at myself then I’m always so surprised!
*They laugh*
Kana: Is that why you remember that you were in something short sleeved??
Ayana: Yeah I remember my skin looking really chubby! *laughs*
Kana: *laughs* That’s terrible!
Ayana: It is! *laughs*

Ah poor Ayachi, but you were terrifyingly cute even back then Ayachi! It’s not a black mark on your history at all!

– About listening to their previous radios…

Ayana: One thing I’ve noticed is that I was a lot more proactive in how I interacted with people on radio back then. It sounds like I was really putting a lot of energy into it because I wasn’t used to it at all!

Kana: Ah, really?
Ayana: Yeah… I can feel how different it is now.
Kana: Ah well you can tell since it’s yourself afterall.
Ayana: Now I’m more used to radio work so I’m a lot more relaxed.
Kana: Ah that’s two years for you…
Ayana: I’m starting to feel kinda sad now!
*Kana laughs*

I’ve actually thought about this before too with fresh Seiyuu in general, Seiyuu who are new to radio have a really fun and unstable atmosphere that makes it hilarious to listen to but as they gain more experience they calm down and it fades. Not that they necessarily become less interesting to listen to but it changes into a different flavour as they lose that unpredictable cute and nervous charm.

– After listening to a snippet from Kana’s birthday Kana tells Ayachi to do the same thing this year! …But her birthday just passed a couple of months ago lol so then Ayachi’s birthday…

Kana: Ah Ayachi has her birthday in a couple of months!
Ayana: Yeah about two months from now…
Kana: Then how about we do it then!
Ayana: Wait a moment! That’s my birthday!
*They both laugh*
Kana: For me!
*They laugh*
Kana: I’ll do something for your birthday so in return—
Ayana: There’s something wrong with that!!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: What do you mean “In return”?!?!
Kana: I’ll give you something good as a present!
Ayana: Oh really??
Kana: So in return…
Ayana: …Huh…? I think there’s something wrong here!
Kana: How about I do the radio with you on my lap?
Ayana: Eh? On your lap??
Kana: Yeah that’s great!
Ayana: Then people will hear both our voices from the same microphone?
Kana: Yup!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: There’s something wrong with this!
Kana: There isn’t! And then you’ll whisper to me every now and again something like “Kana-chan, I’m not heavy am I?”
Ayana: Ehh?? But this kind of conversation feels really nostalgic! *laughs*
*They both laugh*
Ayana: But no I wont do it!
Kana: Why?!
Ayana: No!!
Kana: But it’s on a birthday!
Ayana: It’s my birthday!!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: How about Kana-chan you listen to everything I say on that day! And in return… I’ll say one thing.
Kana: That’s fine with me!
Ayana: Really?
Kana: I’ll do anything!
Ayana: Then…
Kana: Like what? Want me to kiss you??
Ayana: Eh?? Yes!!
*They laugh*
Kana: Oi!

Ayana: Umm…! Umm! I want to go eat out with Kana-chan!
Kana: Oh, let’s do it!
*They both laugh*
Kana: People listening in to this are probably thinking “What is with these two…”

AHH THESE TWOOOOOO I’ve missed this sooo much ;_;

– The radio plays a snippet from the drunk Ayachi episode and Taketatsu gets so embarrassed haha.

– What we’ve all been waiting for…!

Kana: I can say these things because I have you in front of me Ayachi! Having you around pulls out all these things from me!
Ayana: Well you’re saying that but… Recently you’ve been cheating on me Kana-chan!
*Kana splutters*
Ayana: You’ve been saying all this “You’re cute! So cute!” to me but lately you’ve been with a certain O.Y.-chan…! [I don’t think I need to say this but Ogura Yui lol!]
*They both laugh*
Ayana: You’ve been cheating on me!
*Kana keeps laughing*
Ayana: On twitter people have been sending me messages saying “Hanazawa-san’s going to be taken away from you at this rate!”!!
*They laugh*
Kana: But really let me say this! You two have a different kind of cute!
Ayana: Different kind of cute?
Kana: Yup yup!
Ayana: I see…
Kana: You see, Yui-chan—
Ayana: You said her name!
*They laugh*
Kana: Well she’s in Oreimo after all!
Ayana: That’s true
Kana: O.Y.-chan—
Ayana: She’s Kuroneko’s little sister
Kana: Yup! How do I put this? She’s the type you want to protect! And look after!
Ayana: I know what you mean, like you want to hug her?
Kana: Yup, whereas in Ayachi’s case you want to touch her!
Ayana: …Huh? What?
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: What are you saying??
Kana: How do I put this?? Umm…
Ayana: Are you complimenting me?? *laughs*
Kana: *laughs* If I was a guy I would be all over you!
Ayana: Huh? What are you saying? Ah, I think I’ve been told something similar before…
Kana: Really?
Ayana: Yup, a.. A certain loli [Yuuki Aoi] told me that I let off sex appeal! *laughs embarrassedly*
Kana: That’s it!
Ayana: I have no sex appeal!
Kana: I wonder… Umm… Umm… But it’s good!
Ayana: It is??
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: Well I guess we can just leave it at that.
Kana: Yeah— Ah I shouldn’t say what I was just thinking *laughs*
Ayana: What??
*They both laugh*
Kana: Let’s stop here! It’s good!
Ayana: Good??
Kana: Good! *screeches*
*They both laugh*
Ayana: It’s just the first episode and you’re acting up already!

I was wondering when they would touch upon this and it was on the very first episode!

And so the first episode of the second season’s radio ends! I’m sure you’ve already heard but the radio just ended the other day on it’s 18th episode :( I don’t know if I’ll end up writing about the whole series here but we’ll see!

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*
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!
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

Nagi no Asu KaRadio #01

September 30th, 2013 § 10 comments § permalink


Name: 凪のあすからじお
Hosts: Hanazawa Kana, Kayano Ai
Date: 2013.09.25

Radio for the upcoming P.A. Works anime Nagi no Asu Kara. Look at this pairing! I was praying to see this combination on the Guilty Crown’s radio but it never came to be… And now they’re co-hosting a weekly radio! As far as I can tell they’re pretty familiar with each other but they haven’t spoken to each other alone too often.

– Radio start!

Kana: I’m pretty happy that the radio’s started~
Kayano: I think this is the… first time we’ve been on radio together?
Kana: I think so too.
Kayano: It is!
Kana: And we’re both hosting the radio too!

– Wasshoi!

Kana: *reading the script* We’ll be livening up the radio—
Kayano: Wasshoi!!
Kana: Oh!
*They both laugh*
Kana: You sure are livening things up!
Kayano: …Yep!
Kana: …Thanks
*They both laugh*

Ahh this atmosphere where they’re sensing each other out is the best part about these new radio combinations :D

– The radio has them introducing themselves to each other

Kayano: A Self introduction?!
*They both fumble around a bit*
Kana: …I’m from the Osawa agency! My name is Hanazawa Kana!
Kayano: People from Sigma Seven introduce themselves like that a lot *laughs*
Kana: *laughs* They do!
*They both laugh*
Kana: My special skill is…!
Kayano: Oh??
Kana: …Nothing really *laughs*
Kayano: *laughs* What?!?! Say one!
Kana: I don’t have any! *laughs*
Kayano: There must be one!
Kana: Umm…
Kayano: How about cooking??
Kana: …Cooking??
Kayano: Yep!
Kana: I don’t… Take it seriously enough to be proud of it…
Kayano: Ehh?? I don’t think so! From what I’ve heard you’re definitely good enough!
Kana: *laughs* Then cooking it is!

This whole self-introduction thing is kinda awkward ahaha.

– Kayano’s turn!

Kayano: I’m from ProFit! *laughs* My name is Kayano Ai!
Kana: Yay!
Kayano: My special skill is… Umm… Taking walks??
Kana: *laughs* That’s a hobby not a skill!
Kayano: *laughs* That’s true! Umm… Getting up early then!
Kana: *gasps* That’s great!

– Apparently Kayano sunburns easily, she mentions a time when she went with a friend to the beach and she ended up tanned brown while her friend was unaffected.

– Kana calls Kayano “Kayanon”~

– Anime recording seating positions

Kana: *half whisper* We’re… Sitting next to each other in the anime recordings aren’t we~
Kayano: Yeah~
*They both laugh*

Kayano: In order from left to right it’s… [Ishikawa] Kaito-kun, Oosaka [Ryouta]-kun, Hanae [Natsuki]-kun, then me, Kana-chan, [Ishihara] Kaori-chan and lastly Mikakoshi [Komatsu Mikako].
Kana: Yup! The group of boys are like a Boy’s high school.
*They both laugh*
Kayano: That’s true!
Kana: They’re pretty lively~
Kayano: Yeah they get along really well!
Kana: They do!
Kayano: They’re always in their group of three, giving off that high school feeling.
Kana: And then on our side we’re just teasing Kaori-chan!
*They both laugh*
Kayano: That’s right! We were tickling her the other day weren’t we! *laughs*
Kana: Yeah!! She’s just so cute!
*They both burst out laughing*
Kayano: She is! I know what you mean!

The two of them go on about how the recordings feel more like a school due to how everyone’s around the same age. Sounds like a fun recording! Kana’s been going on about how adorable Ishihara Kaori is on her HitoKana. (Her words were something along the line of “If I had a daughter I’d want her to be like Ishihara Kaori”) I’m amused that they were tickling her though :D

– Watch the PV!

Kana: If you haven’t watched the PV you should watch it now!
Kayano: Yup!
Kana: It’s really pretty!
Kayano: And Kana-chan’s—
Kana: Oh??
Kayano: Your Manaka… And what she said… It was really good!
Kana: Ah!! I’m being praised!
*Kayano laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Kayano: Kaito-kun, who plays Tsumugu-kun, was saying “Ah this is wonderful…”
*The two of them laugh*
Kana: Thanks! I’m glad to hear that!

Kana got a bit embarrassed when she was praised there!

The radio was rather relaxed and it looks like it’s gonna stay that way… Now that I think about it, every radio with Kayanon turns into a pretty slow paced radio haha. I’m not sure if I’ll keep up to date with it on here but I’ll definitely continue listening in!

P.S. Here’s a quick translation of what they wrote on the radio page after the recording.

Hanazawa Kana: This is the first radio I’m doing alone with Kayanon!! From the very start it was a fun and relaxed radio, I’m looking forward to how this is gonna turn out!!

Kayano Ai: My first radio with Kana-chan! I’ve been looking forward to this!! We’ll try our best to bring you all a wonderful time with wonderful music~♪

Name: 俺の妹が(ラジオでも)こんなに可愛いわけがない
Hosts: Taketatsu Ayana, Hanazawa Kana
Date: 2011.07.22

The final episode of OreImo’s radio, the opening had the two characters reminiscing about the radio~ It got pretty teary~ ;_;

– About Nakamura appearing last episode.

Ayana: I was a bit nervous…
Kana: But it was fun talking about Kyousuke~
Ayana: It was!
Kana: But that means that the radio has reached it’s climax…
Ayana: Ah, that was a big signal of it coming to an end wasn’t it…
Kana: *laughs* Yeah all that’s left is the end…
Ayana: Don’t say it! Don’t say ittt!

– About episode #22

Kana: I… Still haven’t listened to that episode yet *laughs*
Ayana: I haven’t as well!
Kana: I wonder how it turned out.
Ayana: *laughs* I’ve been too embarrassed… Even just thinking about what I remember from it…
Kana: Well, Ayachi you were super cute at the time!
Ayana: Ah.. See! How embarrassing! *laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: Ah how embarrassing! I’ve been way too scared to listen to it! On my blog I’ve got something call “Nau”[Something like twitter] And when I wrote something like “Good Morning!” there were comments saying “I listened to OreImo radio! Drunk Ayachi was cute!” I was like “AAhh! Nooo stop itttt!”
Kana: It was pretty crazy, Ayachi you were so drunk!
Ayana: All I remember was being really relaxed and laid back!
*Kana laughs*
Kana: You were imagining all these things~
Ayana: Huh what??
Kana: Do you remember that “Lets fall in love with Hanazawa” corner?
Ayana: *laughs* We did do something like that didn’t we! And I remember receiving a wonderful present from Kana-chan~
Kana: And you became “Ayao” *laughs*
Ayana: Ah that’s right! I had to choose between all these choices!
Kana: Yup.
Ayana: That was fun~ *laughs*
Kana: After that things got pretty bad though *laughs* We had a photoshoot right the next morning!
Ayana: Yeahh, we had to get up early…
Kana: The radio was fun but after that… The schedule was pretty rough.
Ayana: But we went to shower and stuff together~ ♥
Kana: *gasps* We… We went to the bath together didn’t we?!
Ayana: We did! *giggles*
Kana: Kyaaa~! That’s right! We did!
Ayana: Yeah it was unexpectedly…
Kana: Unexpectedly… Quite… *laughs into her hands*
*Ayana joins in*
Kana: Sorry everyone! Ayachi is mine. *laughs*
Ayana: H-Huh!? Wh-What are you saying?! *laughs* Just because it’s the last episode what do you think you’re saying?!
Kana: Eh? So what? Let’s leave nothing unsaid!
Ayana: Ah I guess so, you should say whatever you need to say…

Kana x Ayachi love MAX

– Talking about mail from female listeners.

Kana: There have been heaps of mail from girls saying stuff like “Taketatsu Ayana moe!!” as well~
Ayana: *Shocked* Eh?! From girls as well?!? No way! I’ve always thought that girls hated me!
Kana: What?! Why?!
*They both laugh*
Kana: There’s no way that’s possible!
Ayana: Really…? Really??
Kana: Ayachi after listening to something like last episode, no matter who it was, they would be consumed as well!
Ayana: Really?? I… Don’t remember anything *laughs*
Kana: You were so cute!

Aww Taketatsu, don’t worry you’ve got plenty of female fans!

– Amusingly they talked about random happenings on the episode and Ayachi couldn’t remember a majority of the things mentioned haha

– SOOO cute!

Ayana: My sister, actually my brother’s wife, is really cheering me on. She bought my cds from a certain band anime [K-ON!!] and when I was on the front cover of the seiyuu grand prix magazine–
Kana: Ah I saw that!
Ayana: Ah thanks~
Kana: It was SOOOO cute!
Ayana: *embarrassed*ugghhhuu …Thanks..
Kana: SOOOO cute!
*Ayana laughs*
Kana: It was like “If Taketatsu Ayana was your little sister” right??
Ayana: *laughs* Yeah
Kana: SOOOO cute!
Ayana: That’s the third time already!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Calm down!

– Where can I get a copy?!

*Listener asks where he can play the game “Lets fall in love with Hanazawa!”*
Ayana: With the power of Osawa you should release this! *laughs*
Kana: There’s no such thing!
Ayana: Why?! Everyone infected with the Hanazawa sickness would definitely enjoy it!
Kana: What?! What’s with that! *laughs*
Ayana: “Lets fall in love with Hanazawa!” Something like that, but with Kana-chan’s voice! *laughs*
Kana: No! “Lets fall in love with Hanazawa!” is a game meant only for Ayachi to play!
Ayana: Ah..! For me only??
Kana: Yup!
Ayana: *gasps* What?? For me only?? What’s with this sudden happening?? I didn’t expect you to say something like that back to me so that made my heart skip a beat! *laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: Haha! Be jealous of me everyone!
*They both laugh*

– Recount of the radio so far…

Ayana: “I’ve been feeling some danger from my radio partner recently…”
*Starts reading a script with lines Hanazawa has said in previous episodes*
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “It’s fine! Ayachi won’t do it after all!” – Episode 5
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “What’s with this girl! Can I lick you!” – Episode 6
*Kana laughs*
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Ayachi! I love you Ayachi!” Episode 6
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “I thought it was your bra, I was trying to take a peek!” Episode 7 *laughs*
*Kana laughs harder*
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Ah how nice, even in a dream I’d love it if Ayachi would do that to me!” – Episode 9
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Ah I can leave a picture of Ayachi’s lower body under my pillow!” – Episode 9
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “It’s because Ayachi’s thighs just happened to be there.” – Episode 12
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “While I was touching her, my hand just happened to go to her butt!” – Episode 12 *laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Revenge?? What are you gonna do to me??” – Episode 12
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “This is bad, I’m getting excited!” Episode 14
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Then Ayachi if you wrap yourself in a ribbon and embarrassedly say “I’m your present!” I’ll be happy with that!” – Episode 14
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “This is bad! I want one!” – Episode 14
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “It’s been so long… Seriously… Can I kiss you?” – Episode 18
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “I was feeling kinda dizzy so I just happened to stroke you.” – Episode 18
Ayana(Recounting Kana): “Everyone must be licking the magazine cover!” – Episode 20
Ayana: And this is just a small portion of it! This is pretty crazy when you bring it together like this!
Kana: Hey… The staff just called me a female pervert!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Well I guess that’s true!
Kana: Eh?!
Ayana: When we came into the booth today! I didn’t realise you had arrived and you came from behind and hugged me without saying anything! Tightly!
Kana: *laughs* Quietly just wrapped my arms around you.
Ayana: I was so surprised I was thinking “What is this?!” I was really happy though! But I was like “What kind of love simulation/galge is this?!” I thought I was dreaming!
*They both laugh*
Kana: Well… It can’t be helped!
Ayana: *laughs* What can’t?!
Kana: It just can’t be helped!
Ayana: What???
Kana: Yesterday… I was with you for work as well… But seeing you for something personal was really nice and something we haven’t done for a while~
Ayana: *laughs* This is counted as a personal meeting?? This is still counted as work!
*They both laugh*
Kana: Ah that’s right!
*They’re both still laughing hard*
Kana: But in the radio booth there’s no one else here other than the writer! And I didn’t see him.
Ayana: He’s right next to you though! *laughs*
Kana: We created our own little atmosphere~ *laughs*
Ayana: Ah I see~ But Kana-chan you’re really amazing!
*Kana laughs*
Ayana: In a lot of ways! I might have to protect myself!
Kana: But! You were the one who put on your battle underwear when we stayed over together!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: It’s not like that! I did it because I was excited about being with you!
*They both laugh*
Kana: Really?
Ayana: Yeah! It’s not because I wanted to do *breaks into laughter* something with you!
*They both burst into laughter*
Kana: I didn’t say that!
Ayana: I wasn’t thinking that okay?!!
Kana: But well… You were the one who invited me to come bathe with you!
Ayana: …*pauses* That… Might be true…
*They both laugh*
Kana: And I replied with “What?? Really?? Is that okay???”
Ayana: Ah that’s right, it did come from me!
Kana: Yup
Ayana: Well… That’s how it normally goes doesn’t it! It was our first sleepover!
Kana: *laughs* Yup it was~
Ayana: Doing something like that is fine!

LOL these two! They went into some dangerous territory there!

– The end of the radio…

Kana: How sad… We were really distant with one another at the start of the radio weren’t we?
Ayana: That’s true! What happened to that!
Kana: Well we’re both pretty shy… And now we’ve come this close in a year~
Ayana: It’s pretty amazing… I’m quite a shy person so I would never have imagined that I’d become so close with you… Even now I mail you at least once a week. *laughs*
Kana: Yup~
Ayana: Saying “Kana-chan~~ Let’s play~~” *laughs*
Kana: “Let’s play~”
*They both laugh*
Kana: But we really have gotten close with each other~
Ayana: This past year has felt really short, yet long… But still short!
Kana: *laughs* Which is it?!
Ayana: *laughs* Too short!
Kana: Yeah time passed so quickly didn’t it… We were recording this radio before the anime started airing.
Ayana: Yup

Ayana: But it’s ending… Ahhh!!! Noooo! I don’t want it to end!!
*They both laugh*
Kana: But it’s okay… We’ll still see each other~
Ayana: That’s true!
Kana: And if there’s a second season…
Ayana: Yup~

– Wikipedia…

Ayana: Can I say something completely unrelated?
Kana: Hmm? Okay, what is it?
Ayana: Just the other day I looked at your wikipedia page for the first time…
Kana: Mmm?
Ayana: Under Hanazawa Kana’s Personal Life, it said “Loves and dotes on her Co-star in Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii wake ga Nai, Taketatsu Ayana” and that made me laugh so hard! *laughs*
Kana: *laughs*That’s on Wikipedia?!?
Ayana: Yup!
Kana: Why are they writing stuff like that about me! *laughs*
Ayana: *laughs* And then looked at my page… There were all these things I’ve said only on radio as well.
Kana: Yeah that gets put up there… Makes me think that I have to be careful of what I say on radio *laughs*
Ayana: Yeah it gets recorded there!

Kana: Well I have been saying how cute you were in other places…
Ayana: You have??
Kana: Wait it says here “Moving on from Tomatsu Haruka, she is now in love with Taketatsu Ayana”!
*They both laugh*
Ayana: Wait let me see! I wanna see that!
Kana: What’s with that?!!? Don’t try and analyse it like that!!
Ayana: But it doesn’t say I’m in love with Hanazawa Kana on my page…
Kana: Yeah someone write it on her page!
Ayana: Yeah someone please put it up there!
*They both laugh*

Kana: But talking with you never gets boring!
Ayana: *laughs* Really??
Kana: Yup~ You always say all these weird things!
Ayana: *laughs* I’ve always thought you’d get bored of me soon! It really worries me!
Kana: Well don’t worry, it won’t happen *laughs*

And so the OreImo radio ends ;_; OreImo has definitely been the radio I’ve loved writing about the most and I’m glad to have finally finished covering a whole radio series completely on the blog~ The Taketatsu x Hanazawa pairing really is a heart warming combination ♥

But putting that aside… Everyone’s already heard right?! Season two’s radio has started!! YESS!! Starting yesterday, it’s set to air twice a month, the same system as season one’s radio.
Me covering it here is another matter though… (I’m just being tsundere, I’ll probably write about it lol. Eventually…)

As a side note, I was keeping this episode post for when one of two things happened.

1. The second season of OreImo’s radio starts.
2. I decide to end the blog lol.

Guess which one it was hohoho.

See you in Season 2!

Radio Campione! ~Hikasa Hidaka wa Matsurowazu~ #8

Name: ラジオ「カンピオーネ!」 ~日笠・日高はまつろわず~
Hosts: Hikasa Youko, Hidaka Rina
Guest: Ogura Yui
Date: 2012.09.27

Radio for the Campione anime hosted by Hidaka Rina and Hikasa Youko. Amusingly Hidaka is a host and on top of that she’s appeared at the Campione event even though her character barely appears on the show, which they’ve laughed about on a couple of times haha.

Hmm I’m feeling a bit of deja vu here ;)

– The three of them are talking about a photoshoot Yui’s done lately where she had a whole heap of costumes to put on…

Hikasa: Say “You’ll be able to see different kinds of Yui~”
*The other two laugh*
Yui: Huh?
Hidaka: Hey that’s no good! But since you got everyone’s expectations up, do it Yui-chan!
Yui: Eh?! Really?? …“You’ll be able to see different kinds of Yui~”
Hikasa: I want to eat you up!
*They laugh*
Hidaka: Ahhh so cute!!!
Yui: Stop it~!!
Hidaka: It’s crazy how cute you are!
Yui: Let’s stop this, please move on to the next mail!

Everyone’s after poor Yui ahaha.

– Sleepover!

Hikasa: Did you have a sleepover together?
Yui + Hidaka: We did!
Hikasa: Whoa you were perfectly in sync there!
Yui: We got really close to each other during the summer vacation~
Hidaka: Yeah it’s great!
Hikasa: What did you guys do? Please tell more!
Hidaka: We ate together and stuff. We just spent a lot of time together~
Hikasa: …Why wasn’t I invited…? [LOL Hikasa]
*Awkward pause*
Hidaka: Well… You’re busy and all!
*Hikasa laughs, the other two join in*
Yui: We didn’t really have the courage to call you out!
Hidaka: Yeah to call out all five of us.
Hikasa: Ah for Campione you’d be including Hanazawa.
Hidaka: And so we talked about seeing my house but we couldn’t really get all five of us together…
Yui: Yeah that was the hard thing…
Hikasa: That’s true… If we could find time for the five of us to meet we’d be working instead *laughs*
Hidaka: Yeah! *laughs*
Yui: *laughs* That’s true!
Hidaka: So we had only the two of us~
Yui: It was fun~!
Hidaka: Yeah it was!
Hikasa: What’d you guys do?? What’d you guys do??
Hidaka: We talked about a lot of stuff!
Yui: Lots of serious stuff as well~
Hikasa: Serious stuff?
Hidaka: Like work, school, etc.
Yui: Yup~
Hidaka: But we had work the next day so we were both checking our scripts and practicing our lines.
Hikasa: Ah that sounds nice~ Being able to work together like that is a wonderful thing~
Hidaka + Yui: It is!
Hidaka: It was fun~!
Yui: And we slept in the same bed too~
Hikasa: What did you two do on the bed together?
Hidaka: Yui-chan was sooo cute!
Yui: Huh?? What?? What are you gonna say??
Hikasa: What??
Hidaka: Well when I finished looking through my scripts Yui-chan was still working through hers and told me to go to sleep first so I went to the bed. When she was done with her scripts she came into the bed as softly as she could so as to not wake me up! That made me think she was soo cute!!
*Yui laughs*
Hidaka: I was awake but the way she came into the bed was so adorable!
Hikasa: Hey look here for a moment… BAM!
*They all laugh*
Hidaka: Ow! You hit me! What why?!
Hikasa: Bam! I was just so jealous that I couldn’t help myself!
*They laugh*
Hidaka: But how adorable is that!
Hikasa: That’s too cute!
Yui: No, not at all! Rina-chan was also super cute in the morning~!
Hidaka: What?? What is this about??
Hikasa: Oh? What??
Yui: When I woke up in the morning, you were like “Hnnnn~~~” as you were stretching, and I was a bit below you and you touched my head and said “Morning Yui-chan~”! It was so cute!
*The two of them laugh*
Hikasa: What is with these two! *laughs*
Hidaka: It was so much fun wasn’t it!
Yui: It was! And it made my heart skip a beat!
Hikasa: You two should just date each other!
*They all laugh*
Hidaka: But it was so much fun, we should do it again some time!
Yui: Yeah!
Hikasa: I wanna go too! I wanna go too~!
*Hidaka and Yui laugh*
Hidaka: You’re being creepy!
Hikasa: Ehhh?!?
Hidaka: Your motions and everything! *laughs*
Hikasa: But seriously lets do this with everyone sometime~
Hidaka + Yui: We should~
Hikasa: I’ll make sure to take good care of you all… *creepy laugh*
*They all laugh*
Hidaka: That’s scary…

The two of the making up excuses to Hikasa’s “Why wasn’t I invited…?” was sooo awkward ahaha.

– A corner has the three of them pretend to be a moe moe maid scolding a younger coworker and on Yui’s turn…

Hikasa: Show us how it’s done Yui!
Yui: Eh??
Hidaka: Okay, moe moe maid scolding a younger coworker, go!
Yui: “Hey! You can’t do that! …Moe moe beaaam!
*Rustling in the background*
*Yui starts laughing*
Yui: Hey!! No! Stopp!! She’s—!
Hidaka: Stopp! Oii!! Stop it!!
*They all laugh*
Hidaka: Hikasa-san!
Yui: She just threw off her headphones and–! *laughs*
Hidaka: She ran to hug her! *laughs* She’s dangerous!
Hikasa: I get it now… I finally understand the charm of maid cafes.
Hidaka: Hmm?
Hikasa: This is it!
Yui: What?!
Hidaka: But I did the moe moe beam, or a nyan nyan beam as well! It’s great!
Hikasa: …Shut up you.
*They all burst into laughter*
Hidaka: Ahh! I’m gonna cry! *laughs* But Yui-chan had it down perfectly!

I was wondering what was happening when Yui started getting freaked out, Hikasa ran to molest her! Hidaka and Hikasa make a great pair though, it shows how much they trust one another when they can say stuff like “Shut up” to each other :D

Hidaka Hikasa radio “Campione!” Is not I worship #8

Radio for the Campione anime hosted by Hidaka Rina and Hikasa Youko. Amusingly Hidaka is co-hosting even though her character barely appears on the show, which they’ve commented on a couple of times haha.

And now there’s something I want to get out of the way first… You might have noticed that in the past year or so that the blog has been pretty stagnant… Well I’ve come up with a solution for that! A lot of time is taken by me translating the conversation myself, so how can I speed things up? Get something else to do it! To overcome this I’ve set up an automatic speech recognition program to transcribe and my good friend Google Translate-sensei here to do the job for me! From this post on I will no longer be translating these myself!

– Something about a photoshoot with Yui!

Hikasa: You, say you’ll be able to see various kinds of Yui
*The other two laugh*
Yui: Huh?
Hidaka: Hey, it’s not a good thing! However, since all people have expectations of you it does Yui!
Yui: What? ! Are you sure? … “Will be able to see the different types of Yui”…
Hikasa: I want to eat you!
*They laugh*
Hidaka: Oh so cute!!
Yui: It isn’t justified!
Hidaka: It’s cute how much you’re crazy!
Yui: Stop it, please go to the following e-mail!

Yes Google Translate-sensei! This is definitely worth the time saved!

– Sleepover!

Hikasa: Do you have a sleepover with?
Yui + Hidaka: We did!
Hikasa: Oh was perfectly in sync there!
Yui: We got really close to each other in the summer vacation~
Hidaka: Yeah it’s great!
Hikasa: What you guys do? Please tell more!
Hidaka: Oh we ate rice together. We spend a lot of time together.
Hikasa: … why I was not invited …?
Hidaka: Well … it’s all you busy and!
*Hikasa laughs, the other two join in*
Yui: Did not have the courage to call out to you!
Hidaka: Yeah, to call all five of us.
Hikasa: For Campione Oh, I should have included the Hanazawa


– Sleepover 2

Yui: It was fun!
Hidaka: It was so
Hikasa: What are you guys? What is this?
Hidaka: We talked about a lot of things!
Yui: A lot of serious as well
Hikasa: Serious?
Hidaka: Work, school, such as
Yui: Yeah ~
Hidaka: But we had to work the next day. Check the script for both of us, so we had to practice our lines.
Hikasa: Be able to work together is a lovely thing that sounds nice ~ Ah
Hidaka: It was fun ~!
Yui: And we was sleeping together in the same bed too
Hikasa: Did you do it on the bed with two people
Hidaka: Yui-chan is sooo cute!
Yui: Huh? What? What are you going to say?
Hikasa: What is this
Hidaka: Yeah, Yui and I went into bed so that, when you are done viewing through the script I was told to go first through her. When done with the script reading, she came into the bed gently so as not to wake me! I thought it was so cute!
*Yui laughs*
Hidaka: I was awake, she came into the bed was so cute!

Well Google Translate-sensei I don’t know what’s happening here but it sounds lewd!

– Sleepover 3

Yui: No no! Rina-chan was super cute in the morning!
Hidaka: What is this about?
Hikasa: Hm? What?
Yui: Touch the head, I was beneath you, when I woke up in the morning and you were Hnnnn ~ ~ ~ and Rina has been stretched! It was so cute!
*They laugh*
Hikasa: What are these two * Laughs *
Hidaka: It is so much fun, was it not!
Yui: It was!
Hikasa: You two dating!
*They all laugh*
Hidaka: But it was so much fun, we will need some time to do it again!
Yui: Yeah
Hikasa: I want to come too! I want to come too!

Google Translate does a way better job at this than I do!

So that’s how you have it! From now on I’ll be leaving Google Translate-sensei to take over for me, look forward to some great translations in the future!

As you can probably tell by now… April fools hohoho. But seriously, google translate really turned the yuri subtext transcriptions into something… Different haha. I was kinda lost over whether to post this or not due to how google translate kinda lewdified the content ahaha. Well it’s not too bad I guess, unless you start reading too deep into it ;) There were actually much worse ones (go google translate “にゃんにゃんビーム!” lol) but yah I didn’t want to go that far lawl.

Oh and for those who still remembers what happened last year, thanks for following for another year! …I would’ve made it follow in the same vein as the last couple but… Joking about quitting the blog wouldn’t be very funny with how the blog is right now ahaha orz.

Oh and don’t worry, I’ll make a proper post about this episode sometime lol

ひとかな130313webName: 花澤香菜のひとりでできるかな?
Host: Hanazawa Kana

Date: 2013.03.13

The episode after Ogura Yui’s guest appearance. I wasn’t planning to write anything on this episode but I couldn’t leave the part about Yui out :D

– Last episode’s aftermath…

Kana: We’ve got some messages about last week’s broadcast… *laughs* For some reason everyone’s saying the same thing in them.
Kana(Reading mail): “Hanazawa-san, last episode sure was something wasn’t it! Who would’ve thought that all the “Hanyajawa-shan” jingles would be played and with Hanazawa-san being completely all over Yui-chan, it was the best! But it looks like after the used flu mask thing Yui-chan couldn’t hide what she was thinking… Has there been any changes with how she’s been acting with you?” *Kana laughs*
Kana: And after that we’ve got another one…
Kana(Reading mail): “…Last week’s episode was fun to listen to! The writer left an amazingly terrible script for you to read, and with the bewildered Yui-chan’s reactions to the senpai that was all over her, I kinda felt sorry for her!”

Kana: And it’s not just these two as well! There’s so many like them! And apparently someone counted the times I said “Yui-chan” and it was 95 times *laughs* I wonder if she’s scared of me now…? I… Haven’t seen her since so I don’t really know…
What are you gonna do about this?! I’ve got ROKYUBU and everything coming up as well! Hey producer! *laughs* It’s because you played those jingles! The director’s in the wrong as well! What are you going to do about ruining my friendships!? “Call her on to guest again”? *laughs* It’s not that simple! What happens if something like that happens again?! “Apologise to her”? *laughs* Something like “I’ll apologise so please come to guest again!” *laughs*
She definitely won’t come… What should I do?! What if her agency has added me to some kind of black list! *laughs* something like “We will never allow Yui-chan to go to any radio that Hanazawa’s appearing in.” Nooo what should I do?!! *laughs*
Maybe even Yui-chan’s fans are mad at me too! They might be thinking “That person is terrible to Yui-chan”… Should I apologise? …I’m really sor– Wait, no! *laughs* This can’t be right! I’m not apologising! I haven’t done anything wrong!! That was close, I almost apologised! It’s normal! I was just doting on a kouhai! Nothing wrong with that is there! Right?!

Yeah there’s nothing wrong with scaring little Yui! Oh wait… orz
(But really, keep with it Kana-tan, yesss moar plzz)

– Igucchan or Kana-tan…

*Listener sends in a message about not being able to decide whether to buy the calendar featuring Hanazawa or the one with Iguchi Yuka*
Kana: …I see… Well it’s simple. Just go with who you like more! *laughs*
Staff: Ah then it’s Iguchi.
Kana: OI come on! Why?! That’s just your preference! Don’t just “Oh, that’s right!” me! *laughs* You’re HitoKana’s director aren’t you! That’s not the right thing to say! Well back to the topic, just go with who fits your preference! Which FACE you like more! *laughs* Do you get it?! Just make it clear!

But we should just make a joint calendar with me and Iguchi! An Osawa agency calendar! *laughs* That’d be great…

Osawa now has Hidaka Rina in there too!

Continuation of HitoKana’s Ogura Yui guest episode. The radio has the two of them playing a little corner to determine how much of an M Hanazawa is. What happens is that Ogura reads out a line sent in by a listener of the radio for Hanazawa to listen(and react!) to.

– First line…

Yui(Reading out the script): “The way your hair is parted at the middle… Makes me want to flick your forehead.”
Kana: *laughs* Ahhhh! Yui-chaaaaan!! Flick my forehead!!
*Yui laughs*
*Weird sound effect plays*
Kana: What’s with that sound effect??
Yui: I like this line!
Kana: It’s nice! It’s cute!
Yui: Yeah while I was reading it I was thinking that it was pretty nice as well!
Kana: If it was Rina-chan doing this to Yui-chan it would be pretty nice.
Yui: Ah she’s done it to me before!
Kana: She has?!?!?
*They laugh*
Kana: Rina-chan! Ah, I didn’t mention this yet but Rina-chan’s come over to my agency, Osawa! Yay!
Yui: Ah that’s right! She’s part of the Osawa sisters now~
Kana: Yeah now there’s three of us in ROKYUBU *laughs* But having that done to you by her would be nice.
Yui: Yeah it was. She was like (Imitates Hidaka)”Oh you~!”, ah did I sound like her?
*They both laugh*
Kana: You did! You really did sound like her!
Yui: Yeah she was like “Oh you~!” and flicked me!
Kana: You two get along too well!
Yui: Yeah we might be bothering other people…
Kana: It’s a good thing though~
Yui: But I thought “Ah being flicked in the forehead is pretty nice~”
Kana: *laughs* After Rina-chan did it to you? I think it’s just because it was Rina-chan that did it!
Yui: No, well I like foreheads~
Kana: Well you can do it to me~
Yui: Eh?! I can’t! I can’t! Hanazawa-san’s fans will get mad at me!
Kana: “Ah.. Today I’ve got my hair parted in the middle…” *laughs*
Yui: Ehh??
Kana: Yui-chan…
Yui: …Yes?
Kana: What do you think of my… *laughs* mid parted hair?
Yui: ...*Pii~* *flicks her forehead lightly*
Kana: Ahhh!!
Yui: I can’t possibly do it seriously with you!
Kana: That’s right *laughs*
Yui: I can’t flick your forehead like that…!
Kana: And you were like *pii~* *laughs*
Yui: *laughs *pii~*
Kana: Thanks, it was good medicine!
Yui: …Med…icine?
Kana: Ah…
Yui: Medicine…?
Kana: Sorry, I got a little bit too excited *laughs*

Yui asking about the medicine comment sounded SO CUTE. She was like “...くす...り...? くすり...?” asdjfalkjfadklsjf;ljsajkfkla

– Second line!

Yui(Reading out the script): “Hanyajyawa-shan! Don’t touch my legs! Bad!”
Kana: Aaaaaaaah Yui-chan!
[Note: When Kana imitates Yui she always calls herself “Hanyajyawa-shan” trying to copy Yui’s style of talking]

Kana: This isn’t really that S.
Yui: Yeah it isn’t…

Kana: But it was good! Yui-chan you were great!
Yui: Ah… Really…? Thanks…
Kana: Alright lets go to the next one.
Yui: I’m really happy to read these though~
Kana:*laughs* Yui-chan! You can’t get happy over that!
Yui: Really?
Kana: Leave it at me being the only one enjoying this!
Yui: Okay!
*They both laugh*

This line had a weird sentence ender in Japanese that the two of them talked about… It’s kinda hard to detail in English orz.

– Third Line!

Yui(Reading out the script): “Hanazawa-san, close your eyes…”
Kana: Mm okay.
Yui(Reading out the script): “I’m not going to do anything.”
*Kana laughs*
*Yui laughs*
*They’re still laughing*
Kana: This is great!
Yui: Yeah this is wonderful!
Kana: Yeah!
Yui: I want this done to me as well! Hanazawa-san can you try it??
*They both laugh*
Kana: “Yui-chan, close your eyes…”
Kana: Mmmmmmmm!! I WANT TO KISS YOU!!
*They both break into laughter*
Kana: Ah sorry, that’s not how it’s supposed to go…
Yui: Aaah…
Kana: So cute…

Kana breaking out of the script was perfect :D

– Fourth line.

Yui(Reading out the script): “Hanazawa-san, your sense of fashion is kind of weird isnt it…”
*Kana bursts out laughing*
Yui(Reading out the script): “How have you lived through over twenty years like that…”
*Kana laughs harder*
Yui(Reading out the script): “I guess I’ve got no other choice other than to go clothes shopping with you…”
Kana: *still laughing* Yui-chaaa~nnnnnn~
Yui: *laughs* …This is pretty horrible *laughs*
Kana: Yeah this is just insulting me!
Yui:Insults“?? *laughs* It is! Is this alright??
Kana: *laughs* Well it’s okay.
Yui: No it isn’t!
Kana: Well my fans are… Oh but there are a lot that tell me that they love my fashion as well! But I’ve been asked “Why do you wear clothes like that” on occasion.
Yui: Ehh?? Why? I like your clothes~
Kana: Really??
Yui: Yup! I love them!
Kana: I love your clothing too~
Yui: Really? Ah right, today I’m wearing the piece you gave me!
Kana: Ahh! You are!!
Yui: The camisole you got me for my birthday!
Kana: I’m glad to see you wearing it!
Yui: I really like it!
Kana: Ahh white fits you so well… So cute~ Yay you’re wearing it! I’ll wear this as well! This t-shirt!
Yui: You will?! *laughs*
Kana: *laughs* It wasn’t Yui-chan who got it was it? It was the writer!
Yui: Yup.

Yui: But maybe everyone wants you to wear something cuter!
Kana: Cuter??
Yui: Yup! like a flower bed!
Kana: *laughs* Yui-chan, it sounds like you’re making fun of me!
Yui: *laughs* I’m not!
Kana: You’re not?
Yui: But Hanazawa-san, you give off a feeling of flowers~
Kana: *laughs* That’s just from my name! [The Hana in Hanazawa means flower]
Yui: No, I want to see you with them as well!
Kana: Really??
Yui: Like a fluffy one piece dress~
Kana: Ah… Those make me feel really itchy…
*Yui laughs*
Kana: like “ughhh this isn’t meee”
Yui: But I think it’d work!
Kana: But those kind of clothes are nice to wear from time to time~

– More fashion talk~

Yui: I’ve been trying to change the type of clothes I wear lately…
Kana: Oh really? How?
Yui: I wonder if you’ve noticed?
Kana: Huh? Umm what could it be… You might’ve been looking more mature lately?
Yui: That’s it!
Kana: Wearing more blacks.
Yui: Yeah that’s it!
Kana: Oh?
Yui: Recently I’ve taken a liking to black and have been wearing more of it!
Kana: That makes you look more mature!
Yui: Really? I’ve noticed that black goes well with everything!
Kana: That’s right isn’t it, black’s really versatile~
Yui: And I’ve had people telling me things like “That’s rare to see you wearing black”
Kana: Yeah I can imagine that. For some reason… Lately I’ve been thinking “Ah I need to stop staring” when I see your legs…
Yui: Eh?? What does that mean??
Kana: I haven’t been looking at your legs much from guilt……
Yui: Ah…
Kana: But I think the black is good~
Yui: Really?
Kana: You’ll be in university soon right?
Yui: Yup after one more year… I’m slowly becoming an adult…
Kana: Yeah you are~! But black is good, keep with it~

As expected that Kana was able to guess straight away how Ogura’s changed her look lately, she really is watching her carefully!

– Next line!

Yui(Reading out the script): “Hanazawa-san, if you’ve got any foods you hate tell me!”
Kana: Ah, gizzard I guess?
Yui(Reading out the script): “Ah, then I’ll feed it to you by hand~”
*Kana laughs*
Kana: Yui-chan! I’ll eat it!
Yui: I don’t really know what a gizzard is…
Kana: Really? You’ve never had it at Yakitori?

Kana: Yui-chan you loved Ramune/lemonade right?
Yui: I did!
Kana: How about now?
Yui: Lately… I haven’t been able to drink any at all…
Kana: *laughs* Really??
*Yui laughs embarrassedly*
Kana: Why??
Yui: Well I still love it but… I’ve found a new love…
Kana: Oh? What is it?
Yui: What do you think it is? *laughs*
Kana: AHhhh I wonder!! *laughs* But I noticed something just now…
Yui: Eh? What was it??
Kana: Spicy Lotus Root Chips!
*Yui bursts out laughing*
Yui: It’s not that!
*Kana laughs*
Yui: But you’re right that I was eating that just earlier~
Kana: I remember you were downing those like crazy!
*Yui laughs*
Kana: I thought it was cute~ But what was your new love?
Yui: Ah, it’s throat candy.
Kana: Throat lozenges?

Yui: I’ve been eating a lot of those lately…
Kana: Ah but Yui-chan you can’t eat too many of those can you?
Yui: Yup that’s right… I’ve been told off many times by people about that… Like “What’s in your mouth! You can’t eat that!” by so many people!
Kana: *laughs* Really??
Yui: I’ve had to give up a lot of sweets because of it… They told me “If you keep on eating them… Your face is gonna grow big!”
*Kana bursts out laughing*
Kana: What’s with that?! It’s like something you say to a kid!
*Yui laughs*

Yui: But I’ve been forbidden to drink Ramune now…
Kana: Maybe they’ll stop your throat candies next.
Yui: Yeah…
Kana: Well they’re good for you though~
Yui: Yeah they are!

Ahh poor Yui being forbidden from eating certain foods~

– Next Line

Yui(Reading out the script): “Hanazawa-san, have you caught a cold?”
Kana: Ahh I might have…
Yui(Reading out the script): “Do you need a flu mask?”
Kana: Oh! Yes please!
Yui(Reading out the script): I’ve only got a used one though.”
*Kana gasps*
Kana: …Yui-chan…
*Yui laughs*
Kana: A used flu mask? …You’re giving it to me??!
Yui: …Eh? Does this make you happy…?
Kana: Yes!
Yui: …Huh?!?!
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Really?!?! No way!!
Kana: *laughs* Yui-chan!
Yui: Uwaa!
Kana: Well you see…
Yui: Mmm?
Kana: It depends on who’s it is!
Yui: …Huh? B-But it’s… Used?
Kana: Yup! That’s good!
*They both laugh*
Kana: Yui-chan… When we finish here you won’t change the way you treat me will you?
Yui: It’s okay… *laughs* …I know about all your other nice points~
*They both laugh*
Kana: Ahh you’re so nice~
Yui: But a flu mask…? I’m pretty worried about that in terms of hygiene though…
Kana: Well this will pretty much never happen though!
Yui: Never! You’d probably hate me instead!
Kana: No, no way!

Ahaha poor Yui couldn’t let this one go by without questioning it. Sharing flu masks is crazy though!

– Next Line!

Kana(Reading out the script): “Is that ice cream?? Let me try some!”
Yui(Reading out the script): “Here you go. Lick it off the lid.”
Kana: Aaaaaah~ Yui-chan!
*Yui laughs*
Kana: If something like that happened in real life I’d probably be like “What are you saying Yui-chan?!” but then in the bathroon…
Yui: Bathroom?!?!
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Bathroom???
Kana: I’d be like “Ah… Yui-chan that’s so great~!”, moaning.
Kana: Ah she’s getting scared…! *laughs*
*Yui laughs*
Yui: Hanazawa…san…. Uuuu…
Kana: *laughs* Ah I made her cry!
*They both laugh*
Kana: I made her cry! *laughs* I’m joking! I’m just joking!
Yui: Ah sorry…

Lol Kana you’re treading dangerous territory, poor Yui’s reaching her limit!

– Next Line!

Kana(Reading out the script): “Yui-chan!! Let me touch your thighs!”
Yui(Reading out the script): “Is this the mouth of the person saying that?!!”
Kana(Reading out the script): “Ueheheh sowwy~!”
Yui(Reading out the script): “I’ll take my time to punish you properly afterwards~”
Kana: *laughs* Yui-chan!
*Yui laughs*
Kana: Ah that’s cute, it’s like something from an anime.
Yui: That’s right, it happens quite often in anime.
Kana: Yeah events like that.
Yui: But I really like Hanazawa-san’s *uuu* face!
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Do you know what I mean?
Kana: Not really, what face??
Yui: You do it from time to time!
Kana: Huh??
Yui: That “uu~nn!” expression!
Kana: Eh?
Yui: You normally do it when… Well… Like in recordings when I go to you with “Hanazawa-san~!” and you go “Uuu~n~!”
*They both laugh*
Kana: Thats…
Yui: You know what I mean right?
Kana: Yeah! That’s something from the joy I get from meeting you.
Yui: I really love that expression!
Kana: That’s great! Then we’re mutually in love then! *laughs*
Yui: ……I guess so.

Kana: Ahhh It’s hot!
Yui: Yeah it is~ That was interesting~
Kana: It was fun! We’re not doing this corner again on the radio huh… Sure was a fun corner though…

And so ends the corner, Hanazawa scared poor Yui quite a few times here haha.

– Another jingle! Once again each line is a different sound bite strung together by the staff. This jingle might sound familiar…

Narration: Recently…
Kana: I was thinking “Oh? Yui-chan are your legs bare…?” and went up to her and touched her *laughs*
Kana: Yui-chan! You can’t wear stockings!
Kana: When I blew her a kiss she went “Mmnnn *chu*” right back at me!
Narration: We’re starting to see some dangerous signs…
Kana: *laughs* What have I made a high schooler do for me??
Narration: Stop the sexual harassment.

*Jingle ends*
Kana: While that jingle was playing… Yui-chan was saying “Ah! I remember that happening!”
*They both laugh*
Yui: I remembered those things happening! And my legs are bared today as well~
Kana: I was going to ask about that… I was taking a peek at it every now and again.
*Yui laughs*
Yui: Ah so you were wondering about it, I thought so!
Kana: You’re wearing knee-high socks today aren’t you Yui-chan!!
Yui: I am!
Kana: So cute… And your legs are bared even though it’s so cold today!
Yui: No, it’s okay~
Kana: Thanks~
Yui: I’m used to it~
Kana: “Used to it”!? *laughs*

– Ending talk…

Kana: Today we had Ogura Yui come over but… *laughs* Were you alright?
Yui: I was okay~ I had fun~
Kana: Really??
Yui: Yup, it was your birthday after all.
Kana: Ah that’s right, I forgot!
Yui: *laughs* I knew you did!
Kana: I completely forgot!
Yui: I was glad that I was able to say happy birthday to you~
Kana: Thanks~
Yui: Well… *laughs* There were a lot of jingles and….
*Kana laughs*
Yui: There was something I was curious about… You were imitating me in some of those jingles weren’t you?
Kana: Yup.
Yui: Am I… Really like that?
*Kana laughs*
Kana: Well whenever we see each other you’re very subdued aren’t you Yui-chan?
Yui: Mmmm…
Kana: Like (imitates Yui)”Hanyajyawa-shan~”
*They both laugh*
Kana: It’s not a clear “Hanazawa-san” it’s “Hanyajyawa-shan~”
*Yui laughs harder*
Yui: That might be true! I do get very mellow though~
Kana: Yeah and that might be the cause~
Yui: I see…
Kana: But it’s not for sure! It might just be me being weird and thinking it! *laughs* But I get that image.
Yui: Ah…
Kana: It’s so cute though~
Yui: Really? But I’m glad to have seen so many new sides of Hanazawa-san today~
Kana: *laughs* That can’t be good! Maybe I shouldn’t have shown you all that, we have more ROKYUBU coming up as well.
Yui: We do!

Kana: We’ll be able to meet up often again!
Yui: I’m so happy about that~!
Kana: Me too~
Yui: I’m so glad that we’ll be able to meet every week again!
Kana: Me too! And we’ll be meeting up with all five of us as well!
Yui: Yeah, with the atmosphere that the group has~
Kana: Yeah that fun and energetic feeling~
Yui: I really love that~

Amusingly Kana mentions that she had thought that the radio would be ending soon with Ogura coming in to guest but it looks like it’s got no sign of stopping \o/
I actually thought that Hanazawa was going to be more settled down and reserved with Yui coming on but she was still all over her without holding back, probably changing Yui’s image of her forever ahaha. Well I bet with all those jingles being played she probably didn’t need to worry about holding her love back~

Hanazawa Kana no Hitori de Dekiru Kana? #135 – YUI-CHAAAAAAAAAAN!

Name: 花澤香菜のひとりでできるかな?
Host: Hanazawa Kana

Guest: Ogura Yui
Date: 2013.02.27

HitoKana birthday special guesting Ogura Yui, I haven’t written anything on HitoKana in a while but I couldn’t miss this episode! Last year was Hikasa and the year before that was Taketatsu, HitoKana’s been having some wonderful birthday episodes lately! Oh wow it’s really been 2 years since the Ayachi episode?!
I should probably give some background information about HitoKana’s audio clip “jingles”. During the recording the radio separates it’s segments by playing clips recorded from previous episodes of the radio, usually Hanazawa’s more memorable moments e.g. Kana spontaneously creating and singing her chicken song. Amusingly this audio clip can also be heard by the people in the radio booth which has gotten Kana some hilarious reactions when guests come in. Recently though the radio has been playing all sorts of Ogura Yui love jingles…

– First jingle!

*Radio starts with the jingle, keep in mind that each line is a separate sound bite snipped together by the staff*
Kana: It’s okay everyone, you don’t need to be so worried!
Kana (Imitating Ogura Yui): “Hanazawa-san… I’ve always loved you~”
Kana: Let’s stop the sexual harassment.
Kana (Imitating Ogura Yui): “Please bathe with me!” *laughs* I WIIIIILL!!!
*Radio goes back to the recording*
Kana: Oi, don’t just start the radio like that… *laughs* Well whatever! it’s been played already so there’s no helping it.

Kana: Let’s get to the guest! Come in please!
Yui: Ahh~~ Hanazawa-san~~!
Kana: Yaay! Yui-chan!!
Yui: Happy birthday!
Kana: Thanks!!
Yui: I brought some cake!
Kana: Wow there’s so much to choose from! Thank you! I’m so happy!
Yui: Thank you for calling me onto the radio~
Kana: I’m glad you’re here!

Apparently she’s wearing a weird T-Shirt with “どM” on it, meaning super M in the S & M personality traits sense, given to her by the writer of the radio, Sakamoto.

– What’s that around your neck…?

Kana: There’s something I’ve been wondering about… What’s that around your neck Yui-chan? A ribbon?
Yui: Ah yes it’s a ribbon. I heard something about it being something Hanazawa-san wanted? *laughs*
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Could you explain it to me?
Kana: *laughs* Well, yeah. I was asked what I wanted as a birthday present and I didn’t really want anything material so, as a joke, I said “Ogura Yui-chan with a ribbon around her!”
*They both laugh*
Kana: Something like “I’m your birthday present!”, that’d make me really happy! *laughs*
Yui: Ah then, I’m your birthday present~
Kana: AHHH!! That’s it!
*Yui laughs*
Yui: But I got an actual present for you!
Kana: Really?? Thanks!
Yui: I was going to give it to you today but… I forgot to bring it!
Kana: You forgot it?? *laughs*
Yui: Sorry, I’m really sorry!
Kana: It’s alright~
Yui: Ah I’ll.. Give it to the staff sometime to hand over to you!
Kana: No, no! Let’s meet up!
Yui: Okay! Sorry for forgetting to bring it…
Kana: But I’m already happy as it is so don’t worry about it!
Yui: Really?
Kana: Yup thanks!

Kana: But how long are you going to wear that t-shirt for?
Yui: Should I take it off?
Kana: Yeah lets… Have you take it off— Ah this is sounding kinda weird!
*They both laugh*
Kana: This conversation isn’t coming out right! Well, please take off your shirt! *laughs*
Yui: Okay~ Then…
*They both laugh*
Kana: AHHH Yui-chan!!
Yui: Well it’s hot here so I want to take it off as well.
Kana: Yeah it is!

Yui: Well then… Here I go.
*Kana laughs*
Yui: For some reason this feels weird! *laughs*
Kana: Sorry… But it’s alright for me to watch right?! Why can’t I look!?
*They both laugh*
Kana: This is normal! My face is red *laughs* Ah, you can take off the ribbon as well.
Yui: Oh, okay.
Kana: Okay, she’s turned back to the normal Yui-chan.
Yui: Sorry about that~ I’ll leave the t-shirt here…
Kana: It’s okay for me to wear this right? It’s like we’re exchanging uniforms to wear~!
*They both laugh*
Kana: It’s okay right?
Yui: Please wear it~

Lol things turned a bit weird with the whole “take off your clothes” line there! You can see the ribbon around Yui on the photo and I’m guessing Hanazawa is wearing the t-shirt.

– Mail from a listener…

Kana*Reading out mail*: “I have a question for Ogura Yui-chan!”
Yui: Yes?
Kana*Reading out mail*: “Yui-chan, you’ve probably met Kana-chan at work quite often now, when she caresses your thighs–” *Kana and Yui laugh* “do you want her to stop doing it? Yui-chan, even if it’s hard to say it I think you can say it now! The adults here will protect you!”
*They both laugh*
Kana*Reading out mail*: “Well that’s everything, look after yourself and good luck with work~”
Yui: Hmm…
Kana: So it says…
Yui: Ehh…
Kana: But you’re not against it right!?
Yui: But really… Seriously… I’m not against it at all~
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Not at all~
Kana: Really?
Yui: Yup!
Kana: It’s okay?
Yui: I don’t know why but… It’s okay…
Kana: Really??
Yui: I’m all prepared to have you do it~
Kana: *laughs* “Prepared”?!?!
Yui: I’m not against it at all~!
Kana: Then it’s okay! Even if I caress you or rub your head!
Yui: Yup~ Ah but when we’re working, you’re like an onee-san and you’re really nice to me~
*Kana laughs*
Yui: But I was really surprised by that earlier! That jingle thing!
Kana: *laughs* About that… I told them I didn’t want it to be played while you were here but… I wonder why they still played it.
*They both laugh*
Kana: With ROKYUBU and all that we’ve actually seen each other quite a bit so when I talk about you I always end up talking about how cute you are!
*Yui bursts out laughing*
Yui: Why??
Kana: Then after a while it just kept escalating and now it went somewhere strange *laughs*
Yui: Really?
Kana: Sorry about that…
Yui: No, I’m actually happy~
Kana: I’ve heard that your fans at handshake events and stuff like that–
Yui: Yeah!
Kana: They’ve been telling you about me, that you should be careful of me. *laughs*
Yui: They have! It surprised me, I’ve always wondered why.
Kana: Well after hearing that jingle you probably understand the reason now though.
*They both laugh*
Yui: Yeah a bit~ *laughs*
Kana: A bit *laughs*

Lol at the fans telling Ogura to keep an eye out for Hanazawa, well I’m not surprised with what she’s been saying on the radio ;)

– Date me Yui!

Kana*Reading out mail*: “I’ve got something I want to ask you, you admire and love Hanazawa-san–“
Yui: Yup I love her!
Kana: *laughs* *Continues reading*”If Hanazawa-san was a boy would you want to date her? Or rather, would you date her?”
*Yui laughs*
Kana*Reading out mail*: “This might be something Hanazawa-san might really want to know so please tell her!”
Yui: Okay~
Kana: Mmm… If I was a boy? That’s kinda weird to start with….
Yui: Yeah…
Kana: Well?
Yui: If Hanazawa-san was a boy? Ummm…
*They both laugh*
Yui: But…
Kana: She’s so troubled by it!
*They both laugh*
Yui: But I would really want to go out with her!
*Kana laughs*
Kana: Ah thanks…
Yui: I really do love you Hanazawa-san!
*Kana starts laughing*
Yui: Umm really! From when I started voice acting I was with Hanazawa-san a lot~
Kana: Ah yeah right, I wonder if everyone remembers? It was Kaicho wa Maid-sama and… A .Hack OVA.
Yui: Yup~
Kana: At that time Yui-chan you were a middle school student!
Yui: Yeah a second year middle school student!
Kana: Yeah….
Yui: And from that time you helped me so much~ You taught me so many things~
Kana: No, not at all~
Yui: You were always so nice to me~ I’ve really always thought that I wanted to become an onee-san like you~
Kana: Ah! This is it!! I’m glad to be alive!! *laughs*
Yui: But really!! I haven’t thought if you were a boy before but…
*Kana laughs*
Yui: But if you were a boy, I would’ve fallen for you~
Kana: Ahhh…. This is the best birthday present ever…
*They both laugh*
Kana: But really, I want Yui-chan at my home!
Yui: Ahh…? Really?
Kana: You’re so cute!
Yui: I just need to be at your house?
Kana: Yeah, I’ll be healed by having you there~
Yui: Ehh?
Kana: In recordings and stuff I act like an onee-san to you but… I’m always thinking “So cute… So cute…”
Yui: Ah, that kind smile you always have for me is something I really love~
Kana: Are you sure that smile isn’t creepy? *laughs*
Yui: Not at all!
Kana: Ah it’s okay then.
Yui: It’s okay~
Kana: Okay well that ends our lovey dovey conversation~
*They both laugh*

Uwaah the atmosphere turned really pink there!

– Second jingle!

*Radio is playing back the audio jingle with Kana reading an imaginary script by her*
Kana: “I’m home! Ah it’s 11 o’ clock already… I’ll take a bath and get to bed…”
*Doorbell rings*
Kana: “Ehh? Who could it be at this time?”
*Door opens*
Kana(Imitating Yui): “Umm…!”
Kana: “Oh it’s Yui-chan! What are you doing here this late?”
Kana(Imitating Yui): “Umm! Hanazawa-san! I actually came here to ask you for a favor…! Could you… Let me stay over tonight?”
Kana: “Eh?! Seriously?!”
Kana: Or something like that *laughs*
Narration: Please keep an eye out for the continuation of Hanazawa-sensei’s work.

Kana: Sorry for having you listen to that weird jingle.
*They both laugh*
Yui: That was a surprise…
Kana: Ever since meeting you… My imagination has been getting really strong! It was something like having you stay over at my place and I had to make up the lines and everything.
Yui: I remember you telling me about this though.
Kana: Ah right! Yeah I told you that we were doing something like that so if you had time we were thinking it’d be great if we could get you to read some lines for us~ Ah but meeting with you like this already makes me happy~
Yui: I’m happy too~
*Kana laughs*
Yui: Seeing a new side of Hanazawa-san.
Kana: Well you’d be fine with not seeing this side of me though.
*They both laugh*

– Kaori-chan…

Kana: By the way, which are you Yui-chan? Are you an S or an M?
Yui: Umm well I don’t really know…
Kana: You seem like you’re both.
Yui: Yeah I’ve been told that often…
Kana: When we’re just talking you seem pretty normal though.
Yui: Yeah I’ve been told that I’m pretty half-hearted in that way.
Kana: “Half-hearted”?! What’s with those choice of words??
*They both laugh*
Yui: I don’t really know yet…
Kana: Maybe you’re the type to change depending on who you’re with?
Yui: Ah that could be true.
Kana: When you’re with [Ishihara]Kaori-chan what are you like?
Yui: Ah when I’m with Kaori-chan?
Kana: Yeah are you an S or an M with her?
Yui: Well… We’re both really air-headed[Note: Or “boke” if you prefer!] so…
*Kana laughs*
Yui: We’ve got a problem where we’ve got no one to play the sensible[Note: tsukkomi] role with us…
Kana: Ah I’ve actually been seeing Kaori-chan quite a bit recently.
Yui: Yeah that’s right.
Kana: Kaori-chan is kinda… Well I was thinking “Ah this girl is a little… Funny isn’t she?” *laughs*
Yui: *laughs* Yeah she is!

Yui: There are times when we’re talking together and what we’re saying isn’t matching up at all and people tell us that our conversations are pretty strange!
Kana: *laughs* Not matching up?? Is that okay on radio?! You’re doing one together here arent you?!
Yui: Yup we kinda just overcome it by being hyper!

– Rina-chan!

Kana: Just a while ago I was told to act S on radio but I couldn’t do it at all.
Yui: Ah! Yeah Hanazawa-san you don’t seem to be the S type at all!
Kana: Yeah that’s right isnt it… Within ROKYUBU the only person who’s an S would be [Hidaka]Rina-chan!
*They both laugh*
Yui: That’s true!
Kana: Rina-chan’s definitely an S isn’t she!
Yui: She is!
Kana: *laughs* Why do you sound so happy about it??
Yui: Ah well it’s just that she’s said so much to me so I’ve been happy about it~

I seem to remember Iguchi playing with and teasing Hidaka but I guess she really is an S after all :o

Oh god I’m only 20 minutes into the episode and the post is this long, I… think I’m gonna have to stop here and cover the rest in another post. See you in part two!

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~

Where Am I?
