Arashi mania week... スタート!

May 12th, 2006 (11:04 pm)

current mood: giggly

Lots of Arashi happenings today on the media...

Apart from the weekly regulars (Discovery and Recommend Remix) we have
1) Music Station, TV Tokyo 20.00pm (Waiting impatiently for the file now..)
2) Movie Crank In - (kiiroi namida)
3) 吉田照美のやる気man man : 午後2時の興味津々 (14:20-14:40)文化放送ラジオ
Guest: Aiba Masaki
Earlier this afternoon, Aiba was a guest on a radio show called Yaruki Man Man on the same radio station as his recommend remix show. He took questions from various listeners . 
I haven't heard the actual interview,I am just translating the script as I found it on a japanese blog. 
(Anyone who has the file, can you throw it my way? Or point me to it? Thanks!) ^_ ^

*Edit*: 4) Music Station: May 19th 20.00pm (next week too!!)

Question:  Which member is always playing around and going drinking?

Aiba: I would think that many times, all of us would go together. If there’s something on, we would go for Yakiniku. After that, Ohno and myself, we would go to Ginza for drinks. We don’t go to those adult places, but just exclusively to shot bars and izakayas.


We will eat Yakitori and recently, we like to eat pork more than beef.

For drinks, we would have shochu.


Amongst the Arashi members, the ones who have a high tolerance to alcohol are Sho and Ohno.  They are pretty tolerant. For Ohno-kun, he will be sipping tequila from the start to the finish.


Question: Now, what is activity that Aiba-chan is doing?

Aiba: Swimming. I started going to the gym 3 months ago. The gym also has a swimming pool, up till now, I have been swimming my own style, but when I learnt the proper styles, breaststroke is what I am best at. I can also do butterfly stroke.

Host: You can do the individual medley ne…


Question: What is the thing that you are paying attention to now? (ie. The things you are interested in)


Recently I have come to like golf. My golf playing history is 1 year. Shimura Ken-san, he said to me “Let’s do it!!”

My first score was 163. In Johnny’s, previously, when I went with Matsuoka-kun, Nagase-kun, Sakamoto-kun and Nagano-kun, my score was 100.

Host: Did you do a lot of research?

Aiba: Just through alot of reading like Golf Digest..


Question: Why is Aiba-san able to do all the things that an entertainer does?


I realize that even as an idol you have to do various other things. Its been 2 years since I started doing Shimura Doubutsuen.  At first, even tho I behaved just like normal, my parts were totally not screened.  So I said that it was no point that I appeared on the show.. So I discussed with Shimura-san, and he said to me “ Try to do what you can, follow what the others are doing..”


Question: The PV of the new song to be released on May 17th

We had a hard time with the choreography, because there was not enough time. We had to remember it in 2-3 hours.

Host: The PV, you must have spent a lot on it, there is this Harry Potter scene..

Aiba: Firstly, all the members, we pooled all our ideas together to do the PV.


The first person who could remember the dance steps the fastest was Nino. He got it into his head within one hour. That guy, he’s superb.

The slowest was me. The second slowest was Sho.

Host: How about Ohno-kun

Aiba: Ohno-kun, his singing and dancing is outstandingly great!

I am the slowest to remember and the fastest to forget!! XD

When my body is moving I cannot remember things… I am slow…

I have been dancing since I was young and I can remember dance steps within 2-3 hours.


Question:  What is the recent happenings within Arashi?


Host: Ninomiya went to Hollywood right? He did a movie with Watanabe Ken san. What did he say about that?

Aiba; He said, during the filming, Steven Spielberg went to the set. Nino said that he was unexpectedly smaller that he thought he would be.

The next thing is the movie Yellow Tears. (Kiiroi Namida). I have read the script. Today we start filming.


Question: In Shimura Doubutsuen, when you are either looking after the animals or taking care of them, do you have any injuries, regardless of whether they are big or small? If there is, please tell us what happened.


Aiba: I've gotten a lot. The most dangerous is the Kangaroo. The Kangaroo has fascinating power. One nail of the kangaroo, it gave me an injury on my shoulder. Its been a year and mark cannot go away. The small injuries.. I get lots of them when I am running away from the animals.


Host: Do you like animals?


Aiba: My favourite animal is the dog. I have dogs in my house. Atom (his Great Pyreness Dog) has passed away. In my family, its my mom that gave the names.

Question: Is that anything that you have been told off by your senpais? Please tell us what it is.


Aiba: When I went to Karaoke with Matsuoka-kun, he put in a Tokio song. So, I was there with Ohno-kun, and we were drunk, so even tho it was a Tokio song, we went “ Whose song is this?!” XD XD XD… So Matsuoka-kun, he told called us over and we got our asses kicked…. XD XD


I am thankful to senpais who scold me and get angry. Somehow… After that, Taiichi-kun took me out for yakiniku. Taiichi-kun, he’s really good at talking care of me.

Question: Do you have any surprise present for your mom on Mothers day on May 14th?


Aiba: I think I have to do something…but probably I will give her some flowers. I want to take her out for a meal.

Host: What kind of mother is she?

Aiba: She’s tough. She doesn’t get angry at my dad. She doesn’t go out unless it is absolutely necessary.

Host: How old is your mom?

Aiba: She’s 46. My dad is also 46. They got married when they were 20. My dad, he looked at the graduation photos of his school and from there looked for the girl he liked and from there… he attacked?!

Host: Do you look like your mom or dad?

Aiab: I look like my mom….


Host: What present did you get from Nino from Hollywood?

Aiba: A book about Aikido, but the whole thing is in English. I asked him if he had learnt to speak English over there. He said over there, he spoke to the staff in Japanese also.


Host: When will the movie Koiroii Namida be released?
Aiba: Next spring.

Host; What are the scenes that are challenging?

Aiba: The single challenge is the love scene. It’s a bit embarrassing.  It will be shot within these 2 months.

Host: When you do that scene, you will have to brush your teeth or do something…

Aiba: Yes, whilst we can laugh over it, I will brush my teeth…. (>ω<)”


 (I wanna see Aiba-chan in a love scene...I hope his gym workouts have been effective   ^ ^;)

Thank you for the translation.


I wonder how that would turn out! Man, he and Ohno dared to piss their senpais off. Ha...ha... Drunken idiots! And why did Nino buy him an English Aikido book? To improve his English? Why not buy a golf book or something. ^^;;

嵐の山 !

LMAO I was right! When I saw the moving pikkus in the preview of the PV, I went "Harry Potter".

They seem to spend a lot of time with TOKIO.

Thanks for the translations dearie.
