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??

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]

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.

RADIO IS #06

October 13th, 2011 § 4 comments § permalink

Name: RADIO IS
Hosts: Shimoda Asami, Hikasa Youko
Guest: Inoue Marina
Date: 2011.03.12

Inoue Marina guesting on RADIO IS :D Amusingly Marina opens with “Guten Morgen!“, German for “Good Morning!” which completely confuses Hikasa lol, she had no idea what it meant so she laughed that Marina just opened with gibberish.

- Yukana had appeared in a previous event with them already so they mentioned that the whole main cast had appeared with them already… But then they gasp and realise that… They’ve forgotten poor Uchiyama Kouki, the main character ahaha.

- Marina and Asami laugh that Hikasa would look with an eyepatch and Asami sweetly offers to give her one, while holding up her fist lol.

- Asami laments that Lin’s role in the anime has become pretty murky, laughing that she hasn’t had much of a chance with Ichika lately haha. Marina laughs that Lin’s pretty much become a comedic relief character which Asami tries to stop her from saying out loud.

- On the other hand Hikasa says that Houki has pretty much done nothing but call out “Ichika!” the whole anime ahaha.

- The three of them scream that Charlotte is getting so far ahead with Ichika ahaha. YES CHARLOTTEEEEEE~!

- Marina embarrassedly admits that she’s called a sound director “sensei” instinctively, a reflex from when she responded to a school teacher.

- The three of them mention how much they love the members of the Infinite Stratos cast and how friendly they are with one another <3

- Confession corner, Marina version! The theme today is “Parfait”. Amusingly Marina pulled out a theme and then shoved it back in the box as soon as she read it ahaha. The other two laugh and tell her off for it. I wonder what it was :O

Marina: *Quietly taps a plastic bottle* This parfait is pretty tasty… I’ll.. Give you a bite… *offers spoon*

Ahaha Marina looked so embarrassed which made it sooo cute jsdafkjadslfkjads. It’s hilarious how they break down in embarrassment every time >:D

Err they announce that the next episode is the final episode where they have the author of light novels, Yumizuru Izuru, coming in… But I thought there were 11 episodes? Well we’ll see what’s up on the next episode I guess. :O
Oh and about the RADIO IS spam… I’m completely in love with it at the moment so that’s pretty much the reason =P (Also visuals are fun :D)

Sayonara Zetsubou Housou DJCD 4 Special 2

February 10th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Hosts: Shintani Ryouko, Kamiya Hiroshi
Guest: Inoue Marina
Date: 2008.08.05

Moar SZBH.

- Marina arrived an hour before the recording started and met Shintani it seems.

- Marina had wanted to come guest but she said she never got an invitation to come to the show D:
Kamiya: “But you were too busy to come guest all the time.”
Marina: “I never got invited! I’m never busy!”
Kamiya: “Eh you’re on like every single magazine, magazine cover and poster everywhere”

- Kamiya likes Tanii Asuka’s(Komori Kiri) voice more than Gotou Yuko’s lol. Well he’s a big fan of her voice so I’m not surprised.

- Inoue Marina is pretty <3
Kamiya: “No matter what Inoue Marina wears she looks great!”
Shintani: “I agree!”

- Marina paid 500 yen to Asumi Kana to touch her chest lol, Kamiya says that 500 yen is nothing, and Shintani adds on that she touches her for free ahaha. Kamiya then says that he’d pay 5000 to touch her OTL.

The whole touching of chests thing continued and grew worse until the corner ended lol.

Mika x Runa Cross Talk

August 3rd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Hosts: Inoue Marina, Asumi Kana
Date: Early 2009

A 12 minute “radio” cast comment sorta thing released with the Drama CD for Mikarun X. Mikarun X is a yuri manga by the way >:). I can’t really recall much about it now that I think about it but I remember… Spell casting and… Giant naked girls? lol…

- Marina comments how Runa would pull Mika to a hotel, to which Asumi tries to stop Marina from continuing on with ahaha.

- Lots of talk about how yuriyuri the drama CD was lol.

- Both of them were surprised that they had to record a character song specifically for the Drama CD, saying that it was a waste that the song was going to be used only for the Drama CD.

- Marina had not recorded her part of the song yet and said she was worried about how well she’d sing it, to which Asumi goes all “Marina you’ll sing it easily! You can sing so well!” in a really child like screeching voice lolol, Marina follows suite and imitates the same voice and starts wallowing in her worries.

It then degenerates into them screeching at each other randomly lol, with Asumi finishing it off with “Stop touching me!”. Ahaha where was she touching her? :O This part was definitely the highlight :D

- Marina talks about how she didn’t look forward to doing the spell casting in the Drama CD lol.

- When talking about the SFX in the Drama CD the two of them break off into imitating the sound effects used. Explosions and stuff lol.

The two of them seem like close friends so it’s pretty fun to listen to. Additionally they’re pretty relaxed on the cd and they messed around quite a bit. Marina kept poking into the yuri aspects of the material and Asumi kept trying to pull her back lol.
