Popolo Sept 06 Interview

August 16th, 2006 (09:15 pm)

current mood: restless

continuing from a few days ago....

Q3.  Who is the noisiest in the dressing room?


Jun: There is no one that is loud. We horse around and chat, but we don’t really create a huge racket or anything.


Aiba: When we are just joking around, everyone is noisy.  Talking about the things that we play, apart from the game we did just now, we also get our kicks from playing soccer! (no pun intended ^^) When we play soccer, we really get a real ball and kick it around.


Sho: We also talked with the J-Storm staff about forming a soccer team ne!  Since the 5 of us have been together a lot recently, if we don’t find anything stimulating, then we would become bored.. (laughs)


Nino:  This, to Arashi, is the new new interest that we have been looking for. So, since the concerts have already started, it would be good to increase our strength by playing soccer right?


Aiba: Its good that we have a common interest right?  But we have been getting high on playing soccer, but among us, the person who has soccer experience is Sho-kun only.  Furthermore, he comes that kind of “character”.


Sho: It not a “character”. It becos I am really into doing it!


Aiba: But when you do it, unexpectedly, your skills are about on par with the rest.


Sho: Ah so you think like that right? But I will definitely be at the top!


Aiba: Actually, I am looking forward to see what the outcome of it will be. (laughs)


Ohno: I am not good at handling the ball, but I don’t want to be just the goalkeeper…


Jun: For sure, Nino is the one that is good at goalkeeping.


Nino: Well, I got the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award at the soccer match at the Johnny’s Sports Festival.  (laughs).  I should be liking baseball, but why am I playing soccer games instead?



Q4. Who is the quiet one in the dressing room?


Aiba: When we are not fooling around, all of us are quiet.


Nino: There was a period when all five of us were reading mangas, and the five of us were very quiet.


Jun: When we were doing the concert rehearsals, we were quiet during the discussions and the arrangements.


Nino: The were so many emails going around concerning the concert rehearsal schedule, then amongst it there was this mail about Aiba getting bitten by a dolphin….


Jun:  That mail also came to me. That is unnecessary information to me… (bitter laugh)


Nino: When Aiba replies email, he will press “reply to all”.


Aiba: But I only know how to reply mail using that “reply to all” function….


Nino: But captain, he never returned any of our mails!


Captain: I replied “I understand.”, didn’t I?


Sho: We didn’t receive it.


Captain:  Really? I sent a mail before Nino left for Hollywood too, but he said he didn’t receive it too…


Jun: Did you get the address right?


Nino: But I received his mail on my birthday. “Happy Birthday” – he wrote it in reverse and after that, he wrote, “can you read it?” and added in some kind of smiley.

(everybody laughs)


Aiba: You can send out that kind of mail with the smileys, but when you send out a mass reply to everyone, the mail can’t be sent?


Captain: It looks like it..


Aiba: Can’t you change the setting?


Nino(to Aiba): Speak for yourself! Can you please first get rid of the setting in your phone that sends out mass mail to everyone? (laughs)


Jun: For your information, this time, for the concerts, we will try to do the requests by the fans through the J-web.


Sho: I hope the people who come to the concerts will enjoy it….


Q5.  Once and for all, who is the leader of the dressing room?


Nino: To start with, what is a “Leader of the Dressing Room?” If you are talking who is shinning/prominent, then it has to be Captain.


Aiba: Well if you are talking about 番長 then the “” has to be Ohno-kun…(cos he’s the oldest)


Captain(to Aiba): Don’t call me “Ohno-kun”. I feel really funny when you call me that.


(hysterical laughter from everyone else)


Captain: When Sho-kun calls me Ohno-kun it feels natural, but when Aiba-chan calls me Oh-chan or Ohno-kun it feels very strange.


Aiba: Recently, it has been almost exclusively Captain right? Sami is almost non-existent now. But even then, you made a nickname just for that, is sugoi ne….

(I assume he is referring to the solo con)


Nino: The fact that that nickname did not stay is also sugoi.


Captain: Some how its shaky…


Sho: That was also this name “Satoyan”


Captain: U are right. When I try to think about it, everyone doesn’t really have a nickname..


Sho: Ah. Somehow that remark went above our heads…


Nino: Well, it was wrong to give him the nickname Ri-da-wasn’t it?  Becos there are many ri-das.  During the year end countdown concert, there were just “ri-da-“s everywhere….(laughs)


Aiba: So based on that point, we are the only ones that have a “captain”.


Nino: Becos there are so many ri-das around, and everyone is calling someone else rida so easily, so we gave him the name “captain”. (laughs).

LOL does it mean that Chesuto isn't that good at soccer either?

One sends out mass emails and another can't send any XDDD I wish I somehow receive emails from them too.

Yup yup! Their reasoning for calling Ohno "Captain" is very sound. Unique to have a "Captain" among the leaders.

That's funny! Aiba can't call Ohno "Ohno-kun" nor "Oh-chan" :P

hmm, now we all have to change the way we call ohno, we must remember to refer to him as captain and not riidaa.
