[Ryo-chan’s first impression]
P_ Going a little back on the talk... The first time I met Ryo-chan I was 12.
R_ Ahh~ I was 13!
P_ Right. When Ryo-chan was 12, 13, he was small, wasn't he? Since I was taller than him, I talked to him casually, so he told me "I'm older than you, you know??" (speaking in Kansai-ben and in a high-pitched voice)
R_ My voice wasn't that high-pitched!!
K_ The first time I met Ryo-chan was during SHOCK. Ryo-chan had a soft mohican...
P_ Yes, he had a soft mohican at one time, didn't he?
K_ That impression is so strong... I thought I shouldn't make that person angry. (lol)
K_ You had sort of a scary image...
M_ My image of him is the one of a red sweatshirt...
M_ Didn't you have a red sweatshirt that you liked and used to wear a lot?
R_ Red? I didn't wear one.
M_ Ehh? Red...
K_ Wasn't it Akanishi?
R_ Ahhh~ Akanishi used to wear one a lot!
P_ I wonder if it's because he is Akanishi that he used to wear red... (Akanishi's AKA means red)
K_ I don't think that's the reason! (lol)
K_ Tegoshi, when was the first time you met Ryo-chan?
T_ It was at the time of the jacket picture, the jacket picture for NEWS Nippon.
R_ I was like this, right? (Ryo-chan puts his hands on his pockets and sort of imitates a delinquent.)
T_ Yes, you were like that. (lol) You wore swept-back blonde hair, so it was reeeally scary.
K_ Was it during that time you used to wear a light blue jersey? Yamapi also asked, "Who's that in light blue?"
P_ That's because it was practically the first time I met him (Tegoshi)...
K_ During that time, Tegoshi used to wear light blue and orange clothes together, didn't he? It was the sort of color combination that made one think, "What are you aiming at??" Those clothes were bought by your mother, right?
T_ Yes, I used to wear the clothes my mother would buy me...
K_ Where did she buy it?
T_ Where? I don't know.
S_ Department store?
T_ Department store? Maybe...
K_ Was it at Jusco?
T_ Hmmm... I think it was at a department store. That kind where you buy 3 pieces for XXX yen.
S_ Even though you used to wear light blue and orange clothes together, only the bag was a brand-name one.
T_ It was my mother's hand-me-downs.
K_ Light blue and orange clothes together... brand... You were cheeky with a feeling of "What does he want to do?"
T_ Why was I cheeky? I was wearing my mother's hand-me-downs!
S_ Light blue and orange, and only the bag is brand-name... It's madame-ish, isn't it?
K_ It's been 5 years since we debuted... It was fast, wasn't it?
P_ The other groups, after they are formed, they spend some years before debuting, right? We didn't have it; it was like we only knew of the debut together at the time the group was formed. Only a few people came to see our first concert...
K_ Johnny-san even told us "YOU guys are in a dangerous situation". (YOU was spoken in English.) And now we're even going to spend the passage of the New Year’s at Dome (Tokyo Dome)!
S_ Since we didn't have enough of a budget, our first costumes were very thin.
K_ This time Shige was in charge of the costumes, right?
S_ Right. And things I wasn't able to say in the beginning, this time I made an effort to say them. "I want to make it glitter a little more...", I tried to say this opinion... and they approved it!
K_ Will Tegoshi also turn self-important?
S_ "Bring some costumes with skulls", "The bags should be brand-name!!" (imitating Tegoshi)
T_ Kyahaha!! Why is it that voice??
K_ Tegoshi's beautiful voice will also disappear some day, you know...
[Ginza Rhapsody standby]
Narrative that accompanied Japanese text:
When Koyamapi decided to make a song together, they consulted Johnny-san and he said "YOU, make a song about the story of a love in Ginza!", and that's how Ginza Rhapsody was created. They said "Johnny-san is a genius". They thought about how would they do it, since they were both guys, so it was decided that Koyama would be the man and Yamapi the woman. The colors of their clothes are also opposites, Yamapi's being black, and Koyama's, silver.
K_ We're going to the standby of the next song. We are Koyamapi, created after 5 years of the formation of the group!
P_ Please welcome us. Koyama-san too...please, take care of me. (speaking in a very polite way)
K_ What are you saying, Yamashita-san? It's my pleasure. Please, come this way... (also speaking in a very polite way)
P_ No, no, please, Koyama-san! You go first! (continues to speak in a very polite way)
K_ No, Yamashita-san... You're my senpai, so, please, come this way. I'll guide you. (continues to speak in a very polite way)
They continue like this for some time more.
When they were finally leaving...
P_ Koyama, promote it! Won't you talk about your stage?
K_ Yamashita-san, thank you for always caring about me... ehh... Shige, say it!
R_ He asked you to say it!
S_ Ehh...Koyama will be doing a stage!! Is it ok like that??
K_ (already from inside) It's ok!
R_ Every Friday at 10 PM I'm on Ryuusei no Kizuna, so please watch it!
S_ How about you also say it?
T_ Ahh~! I'm going to be in Shabake!
S_ Until now, how many episodes have you filmed? (asking Ryo)
R_ How many? Aa~~five episodes. It's progressing well. Soon it will be the final stage...
M_ Hmm... Fridays, you know, is a day when we usually have rehearsals, right? So even if I want to watch it, I can't. I'm recording it, but...
R_ What?? You're recording it, but watching it...
M_ ...I'm not.
R_ Until now...
M_ ...I haven't watched it.
S_ I'm also recording it, but I'm watching it.
S_ This pin to wear on the head; it was Tegoshi's idea, wasn't it?
T_ The hat pin? If you use it, you'll look cute. I recommend it.
R_ Don't say they will LOOK cute. It seems like they usually aren't cute!
T_ That's not what I meant!!
