The translation below is only some parts of the radio. I only translated important parts.
Minami: When was the last time we met?
Tsuyoshi: I’m sure it’s pretty been long.
M: But sometimes we passed by one another at music program. Did we met at any this year?
T: Not yet. I’m not sure though…
M: Happy new year then.
M: What is that supposed to mean?
T: I couldn’t help myself.
M: Just so you know, I want to meet you.
T: You have a lot in your plate after all (laughs)
M: Please invite me! Like in a TV program…
T: TV program? Of course I would if you didn’t mind.
M: Really? I’ll be always waiting. I’ve been waiting to be invited to KinKi’s program but it never came…
T: It’s because you’ve been busy.
M: You are too, aren’t you Tsuyoshi-san?
・Takamina ranked 1st in General Election for Domoto Tsuyoshi
M: You gave me a CD privilege; a panty before. And I told you I’d wear it when General elections. I really wore it and ranked 4th.
T: You’d be ranked 1st if you didn’t wear it. Too bad.
M: No way! You said that it’s a contest panty, right?
T: Yup. If you didn’t wear it you’d be 1st. I thought that time when you told me that you’d wear it “Is she really going to wear that?”
M: It would be rude to your fans! They’re wearing it seriously perhaps…
T: Well, you wore it in an important occasions after all (laughs)
M: Because it’s a contest panty! (laughs)
T: You know, most people were focusing on which rank in General Elections. But I didn’t care about Takamina’s rank because whatever your rank would be, I’m sure that it would be the best for you. That was the way I watch you in GE. There’s no rank for me. Takamina is Takamina after all. If that is Takamina’s result, then its 1st for me. I thought nothing but that. I didn’t know any other members. Only to Takamina that I talked a lot so I get empathy to you easily.
M: So are you saying that my rank is 1st in Domoto Tsuyoshi General Elections?
T: Well, yeah.
M: Yay! I’m the center!!
T: I don’t know what kind of center though (laughs)
・If you have a chance to give song as present to Takamina, what kind of a song you’ll give?
T: A piano-ish song.
M: Huh? Why?
T: Your voice will be ‘alive’ more in that genre of song. Lately, so many singers being told to sing in this or that range of vocal and speed. They don’t choose singer to sing a certain song. I’ve been pursuing a job where I can show my earnest effort and my personality in an arrangement. I’m telling people that there are some blank spaces in songs. You can sing a song freely. That’s why I choose a piano arrangement for you.
M: Wow… I’m touched! Tsuyoshi-san is always singing freely in your solo concert. And it’s amazing.
T: Basically I’m doing it based on a whim. Like inspirations. I said a piano arrangement would fit you because just now we advanced to this topic, but in later days, there would be a talk about creating a song for Takamina. I’ll cherish this inspiration and put it in my head what kind of shape that it would turn. But we won’t know until we try, right? I’ll judge someone’s vocal after I listen to their singing. And if it doesn’t right, I’ll ask the staff to change the mic or even reselect the song. After all the considerations I’ll draw a conclusion that that will be the best for them. And to think about Takamina’s characteristic, it will be very feminine and sexy. But if I choose that genre I’ll feel somehow disadvantage.
M: Eeeh? But I’m aiming to be a 25 years old adult.
T: I know but you’re still innocent.
M: Am I look innocent?
T: Because you’re always laughing. But there is no artist who doesn’t have any loneliness, sadness and pain inside them. They’re always being told by so many people and doing their best until today. Well, they’re still doing their best too but they can’t be labeled as ‘artist’ if they don’t have such feelings. They are being told a lot and sometimes being bullied as someone’s please. But they endure it and stand themselves in their own way. I believe there are some people out there understand their feelings. That’s why they grant those artists some love and dreams, right? And I want to do the same thing to Takamina. I want you to be loved by audience and I want you to give your audience your love too. If there is a symbiosis like that, there is a possibility that your song’s genre will be changed. Not only your songs, many things might be changed. By considering all of these, I’ll write down the lyrics based on what I’ve said just now and choose the melody from the keyboard. And I hope that I can write a warm sound yet lonely and sad vocal kind of song.
M: I see… Whenever I have a talk with Tsuyoshi-san, I always feel being looked-through.
T: Your thoughts are escaping bit by bit.
・Asking for Surprise Monday
M: I couldn’t be here on Monday, so…would you please take charge for next Surprise Monday? Just for 2 hours.
T: Can I do everything I want for 2 hours?
M: Would you please?
T: If my management approves then why not?
T: 2 hours live?
M: Yes, live.
T: I’ll bring some equipment just in case.
M: And please…write a song for me!
T: Sure thing.
T: If it would be making any progress, I’ll use some equipment in the middle of that 2 hours.
M: Are you saying that you’ll create it in the middle of Surprise Monday?
T: Yup. People might not have an idea what am I doing.
M: It would be like a live concert.
T: Wouldn’t it be sounded cool if I create the demo here and then do any finishing touches at recording studio later?
M: Eeeh?! That would be awesome if it came true. My manager and someone from recording label are holding a meeting outside this booth.
T: I can hear their weird laugh (laughs)
M: A laugh that I’ve never seen…
T: Originally, music is born this way. But then it took by marketing business and it isn’t born this way anymore. In my own ideal, in 10 years later, users (buyer/consumer) will go to music store or download to buy music that born in this way. I really want to convey that. And if it’s possible and allowed, let’s do it. I couldn’t imagine how would it work, but this is a topic that came out today, so let’s just bring it down and do it this way.
M: Please do. I apologize for being selfish and asked you so many things. Please come again soon.
T: By all means. Anytime.
There is also a funny part where Tsuyoshi keeps telling Takamina to go to her Abacus cram school =))
And there is a part where Takamina asked Tsuyoshi to create a LINE account. Apparently, in Domoto Family group chat, only Tsuyoshi who doesn’t participate.
Most people might think that Takamina is such a selfish and bratty to Tsuyoshi. Well, she is. Because she is the youngest member in Domoto family (Shin Domoto Kyoudai). Domoto family was the only place for her to take a break from the whole leader and AKB48 thingy. She was a spoiled little sister in that family. And her big brothers didn’t mind for her to be a spoiled little sister. The brothers knew her maximum efforts to keep the 48 group’s members in shape. As her fan, it was also a heartbreaking moment when Fuji TV stopped Domoto Family’s talk show. Not only because she is a part of the family, but also because it was a great show. Well, it still ongoing once a year but I can’t watch it like I used to every week.
