171022 Model Press Interview

I can finally control my breath into normal. lol

@qjunk_ on Twitter mentioned me with an article from Modelpress. I was drinking my smoothies for dinner and almost choked to death seeing the thumbnail of the article.

 

It’s a kami article.

 

This time, I’ll translate some parts of the article. Some parts which Ikuchan and Maiyan are mentioned, obviously. I’m getting more and more biased to these two ; __ ;
I’m boasting to my otaku friends that I’m a Nogizaka DD (daredemo daisuki), but look at me now? So many amusing parts in tonight’s Nogichuu but I’m translating this instead.

Maa iika?

So here we go!

 

― 「あなたはまだ、強くなれる」というキャッチコピーもありますが、作品をとおして“成長できた”ことを教えてください。
― “There is a catchphrase ‘You can be even stronger’, please tell us something got stronger in you through filming this movie.”

生田:私は姿勢ですね。なぎなたの先生に指導していただき、かなり変わったかなって。もともと立っている時も猫背の逆で反り過ぎちゃう癖があるんです。なぎなたは見た目の美しさもすごく大事で、しかも寧々ちゃんは強くなきゃいけない役。後ろにのけぞっていると逃げ腰に見えてしまうので、先生から前に前にって直していただいて。その結果、普段の生活でも姿勢はだいぶよくなったように思います。

Ikuta: As for me, it’s my posture. It’s changed since Naginata instructor taught me. When I have a bad habit when I’m standing. I bend my back backward too much. Naginata is important for its beautiful appearance, also, I have to play a role of Nene-chan who is a strong one. If I bend my back backwards, it will look like I’m trying to flee. The instructor kept saying “Go forth! Go forth!” to fix my posture. As the result, I can feel that my posture is better in my daily basis.

白石:私は毎日撮影が朝早くからで、早朝5時起きとかが続いていたんですけど、途中で慣れてきたのか、スパンって目が覚めるようになりました(笑)。朝はもともと強い方でしたが、体が早起きを覚えた感じ(笑)。

Shiraishi: As for me, usually the filming started early morning so I woke up at 5 a.m and it was continuing for days until I get used to it *laughs*. I’m actually a morning person, but it’s new that I can move my body soon as I’m awake *laughs*.


ライバルの真春(白石麻衣)と寧々(生田絵梨花)に「バチバチに睨み合って!」とリクエスト
We asked the rivals, Maharu (Shiraishi Mai) and Nene (Ikuta Erika) to glare at each other.

― 作品でも描かれていますが、部活の青春に“ライバル”“憧れ”“刺激”といった言葉はつきものだと思うのですが、最近そのような言葉をメンバーに思ったことはありますか?

 The words ‘Rivals’, ‘Admiration’, and ‘Encouragement’ in club activity are presented in this movie. Do you think the same to some members in group lately?

伊藤:私はいくちゃん!

Ito (Marika): I think it’s Ikuchan!

生田:え!?

Ikuta: Huh?!

伊藤:いくちゃんはこの夏、ずっと舞台が続いているなかでもツアーに参加していたんです。本当だったらツアーに参加できないくらい忙しいはずなのに、自分から志願して「仙台の公演だけは出る!」って。なのでリハーサルとかもギリギリまで詰めてやっていたんですけど、本番はちゃんとやりきって、最後にいくちゃんが「地方は最後なんだよね」って挨拶する時も、なんだろうな?たぶん気持ち的には追い詰められていたのかもしれないけど、とても清々しかったんですよね。いつもそういう清々しい姿って見せないので。その時にすごい人がグループにいるんだなって改めて思いました。

Ito: Ikuchan is in the middle of musical activities along this summer but she spared her time to join the tour. It was actually impossible for her to join the tour due to her hectic schedule. But she volunteered herself and said, “Let me join just for one schedule in Sendai!”. She only had a short time for the rehearsal. But she did well at the day of the live performance. At the end of the live she said, “This is my last performance for local stages.”. At the time she said that, I thought that she was actually being chased by her hectic schedule, yet I could see her refreshing appearance at the same time. It was a rare thing for her to show that figure to us. That time, I thought that an amazing person does exist in this group.

生田:いやいや…恐縮です(笑)。私はみんながすごく忙しいっていうのを近くで見て思うし、みんなの方が忙しいってむしろ思うくらいだから、常に迷惑をかけないようにしようと思っていて。だからそう言ってもらえてすごく嬉しいです。

Ikuta: That’s very kind of you *laughs* As for me, I realized that everyone are also having a hectic schedule. And I think that the other members are even busier than me so I don’t want to burden them. That’s why I’m so happy to hear she said that.

― 旭(西野)&真春(白石)と寧々(生田)のようなライバル関係は乃木坂46のなかにもあるのでしょうか?
― Is there any rivalry in Nogizaka46 like Asahi (Nishino) & Maharu (Shiraishi) and Nene (Ikuta)?

桜井:みんなを見ていて、あまりメンバー内で戦っているという印象は感じないですね。一人ひとりが周りを意識してなにかやっているっていう子はあまりいないです。でも今は3期生とか2期生とか1期生って分けられる機会が多くなってきて、その期別ごとで「先輩にも負けられない!「後輩には負けてられない!」みたいな気持ちは、グループ全体で強く感じるようになったなとは思います。

Sakurai: As what I’m seeing around members, I don’t see any struggling personally between members in the group. There’s no one who thinks of being stand-out the most of all. But since 3rd gen members are also joined, so many opportunities for us to get differentiated between generations. By that, the feelings of “We can’t lose to our seniors!”, “We can’t let our juniors beat us!” are getting stronger in the group.

インタビューメモ/撮影で5人から見えた絆
Interview Memo/The Bond of These 5 We Were Seeing Throughout Interview


ふざけ合う2人…その1
Both of them are being playful ①

ふざけ合う2人…その2
Both of them are being playful ②

ふざけ合う2人…その3。全部かわいい♪
Both of them are being playful ③ All of them are so adorable♪

試合の部分も吹替えはなし!とことんリアルさを追求!ゆえに彼女たちはハードスケジュールの合間を縫ってなぎなたの練習に打ち込んだ。真摯にひたむきに――――インタビューは撮影の時間を含めてわずかだったが、共に撮影を乗り越えた5人の絆が伝わってきた。ライバルの真春(白石)&寧々(生田)にカメラを向けて「バチバチに睨み合って!」とリクエストすれば、すぐさま腕を組んで目をギロリ。でも数十秒後には照れてふざけ合って大笑い。一方、将子(桜井)&えり(伊藤)は文乃(富田)に体を預けてべったり。心地良さそうに目をつむる姿はとても微笑ましかった。

No stand-ins in battle scenes! They are pursuing the real thing thoroughly! Therefore, they were practicing Naginata in the midst of their schedule. Sincerity and earnestly and all—–The interview and photo-shot time was short, but we could see their bonds along the way. We asked the rivals, Maharu (Shiraishi) & Nene (Ikuta) to glare at each other, and then soon they fold their arms and did what we requested. But then, few seconds later, both of them laughed and then being playful. On the other side, Shoko (Sakurai) & Eri (Ito) were being all clingy to Fumino (Tomita). Both of them closed their eyes comfortably and that was very pleasant scenery for us.

 

Photos galore!

 

Am I the only one who is seeing the last two photos as if Ikuchan and Maiyan are the brides and the rests are their bridesmaids?

NICE! DO MORE, PLS!

FYI, this post was created on Oct, 23 but I could finally publish it a week after. Welp. I was busy. I couldn’t even focus on Kareshi Event in Nogikoi ; _ ;

Thanks for reading!

Naginata Club ~Ray’s Original Story~ (Ray October 2017 Issue)

If Maiyan and Nogizaka46 members were in “Naginata Club”…
Being an awe-inspiring and lovely ‘Asahinagu’; mix-matching clothes in 30 days!

As a commemoration of movie “Asahinagu” release, Maiyan became a main role in this mix-match and 3 members of Nogizaka46 also appeared as special guests! We put some essences of the movie into this Ray’s original story. Pay attention to Maiyan who wears stylish clothes in cute-adult way❤

Starring:

  • マイ Mai (Shiraishi Mai)
  • エリカ Erika (Ikuta Erika)
  • マリカ Marika (Ito Marika)
  • レイカ Reika (Sakurai Reika)

Day 1
Naginata club’s practice today has ended! What should we do after this~?

Right after the practice ended, I asked them, “Let’s go to a cafe!” but Erika and Reika wanted to go for a karaoke and Marika wanted to eat beef bowl! This happens a lot. Our ideas are never matched. It’s the usual pattern (lol)

Day 2
I ate taiyaki with Reika at cafeteria after school.
When the class ended, I bumped to Reika in front of classroom. “Senpaaa~i, treat me some taiyakis please?” she begged using a cute expression on her face. Oh, geez, it can’t be helped~!
Reika: “Are you a type who eat it from its head first?”
Mai: “Yeah, I think I’ll eat from its head first.”

Day 3
Using bicycle to commute. For the sake of bodybuilding as Naginata member.
I have a rule to myself; not to let my commuting time wasted for nothing! 30 minutes bicycling for a one-way to university since I was a freshmen. The wind feels refreshing!

Day 4
“You look more matured!” said a former senior of mine in Naginata club

Day 5
Woke up early today to do some groceries at morning market along with my little brother.

Day 6
Putting my hard work as part-timer the whole day!

Day 7
Having class in first period… I’m in a living hell!

Day 8
At the library with Marika!
Ugh, I’m really not good studying…
I got failing mark in exam, again. So I’m borrowing Marika’s note to study for a remedial. It would be great if I got credits from Naginata…can I, Prof?
Mai: “I don’t want to study~”
Marika: “You must study properly. Or else you’ll repeat those classes!”

Day 9
Today’s study group is canceled! I’ll go for a shopping to release my stress.
I supposed to study at the library again with Marika, but I can’t take it anymore… As a prize for doing my best yesterday, I think I’ll buy some clothes.
Mai: “I’m sorry, Marika!”

Day 10
I guess I’ll cook something. It’s been a while~

Day 11
Let’s go for a karaoke with my club juniors!

Day 12
I was being in high spirits yesterday, so today will be my chill day.

Day 13
A fateful encounter happened…❤
I’ll tell everyone about my ‘love at the first sight’!
At a train, I encountered an ideal type of a hunk❤ Since he was holding a naginata, I hope I can see him again in a tournament~ For now, I’ll contact three of them♪

[The Squad❤Naginata Club (4)]

Mai: “I think I fell in love
Marika: “Really? What kind of guy?”
Reika: “A hunk? Is he from our uni?”
Mai: “Nope! But he was holding a naginata!”
Marika: “Wooow~❤ It could be a fate, don’t you think?”
Reika: “I envy you~!!!”
Erika: “Senpai fell in love to someone… NO WAY!!!

Day 14
Is it because I’m in love??? My stomach keeps growling❤
I just ate ramen, but I’m still hungry. Is it because it’s autumn already? Or, because I’m in love? Nah❤ I’ll buy some dango and go home.

Day 15
Walking for an hour as a diet program!

Day 16
I can’t stop thinking of him even when I’m working part-time!

Day 17
Heading to Shibuya to watch a romance movie with Reika❤

Day 18
Going to cosmetic counter to buy new lipstick♪

Day 19
Going to hair salon to prepare myself in case I’ll meet him again next time❤
No school today, so I’ll go to a hair salon in Omotesando. I didn’t know that I could be this happy everyday when I’m falling in love!

Day 20
Oh, no! I was dreaming of him that made me overslept…
I have a morning practice in club activity and yet I overslept. I’ve never done this before! I have to tell the others right away. I feel like neglecting naginata lately.

[The Squad❤Naginata Club (4)]

Mai: “Sorry, I’ll be late for the practice!”
Reika: “That’s unusual of you.”
Mai: “I…overslept…”
Erika: “Are you even trying to focus on practice, senpai?”
Marika: “She’s right. Are you neglecting the club lately?”
Mai: “I’m so sorry. I’ll treat you girls ice cream later!”

Day 21
Unexpectedly I met again with him!❤ I asked him his LINE ID❤

Day 22
I can’t put my back into naginata!

Day 23
It’s hard to concurrent club activity and love! 

Day 24
I bumped into Erika at library! But she is kinda…weird?

Day 25
When I said hi to Erika in front of classroom, she ignored me…
She was kind of weird yesterday so I tried to call her out but she ignored me! I greeted her on LINE, but she just read my chat. What makes her mad at me like that??
Erika: “Mai-senpai is stupid!”
Mai: “Meanie! Why is she ignoring me?!”

[Mai, Marika, Reika (3)]

Mai: “Erika ignored me today! Don’t you think that’s mean?”
Marika: “Tbh, it’s a matter-of-course that she’s mad at you judging from what you’re doing lately”
Reika: “I think so too!”
Mai: “Eeeeh… No way…. :( ”
Marika: “Mai, you’re her senpai, go apologize to her!
Reika: “I’ll bring Erika!”

Day 26
I’m not really good to apologize to people!

Day 27
I consulted with Marika on the way home! Somehow I feel relieved❤

Day 28
Reika gave me some advice too… I have to be honest!

Day 29
Alright, I’ll tell my true feelings to Erika tomorrow!

Day 30
Reika: “Just be honest, okay?❤”
Erika: “Yeah, I will!”

Marika: “Go on, apologize to her”
Mai: “Uuuh…”

With everyone’s supports, I can finally being honest❤ We’ll be friends from now and forever!
I was speaking honestly to Erika, and she forgave me. There’s no love ban rule in university, so I do want to fall in love (lol). But now, these three are my everything

[The Squad❤Naginata Club (4)]

Mai: “To me, I prefer naginata than romance!”
Marika: “Oh really~??”
Reika: “Agree~ lol”
Mai: “You girls are such a tease (lol)”
Marika: “You can do both, right?”
Erika: “I will cheer for senpai’s love life from now on
Mai: “Thank you

BEST. RAY’S. ISSUE…. SO FAR!!!!

Thanks to this story, I’ve got an idea to write a one-shot of fanfiction. Currently writing the story line so I won’t forget the idea that may lead me to another writer’s block. Yes, I don’t want to redo my mistakes.

Anyway, sorry for the poor quality of images. I’ve tried to find the scans but I couldn’t find anywhere :(

 

Thanks for reading! 

Nogizaka46 19th Single Coupling Song 『Maa ii ka?』 Lyrics & Translation

Oh, hi! It’s been a while.

As always, I’m busy with my office work lately.

I found a spare time on weekends, and this one will be one of me being productive in this fandom.

 

Before I put the lyrics and translation, let me write down my thoughts for this song.

I forgot where did “Maa ii ka?” gets aired. But I found it in my YouTube home. The moment I listened intro part, I was thinking, “Why it sounded like a kid song? I think I’ve heard this melody somewhere in my childhood…”
The more I listened to the music, I couldn’t stop grinning. Once I finished listening to the song, I’ve already decided that this is the best coupling song of 19th!…so far. I’m waiting for Ikuchan and Kuboshi’s musical song and then I’ll re-decide it.

 

So here comes the lyrics!
(I don’t know if someone out there already done with this lyrics translation. So maybe that someone’s translation is better than mine. I still do the translation just…for fun!)

『まあいいか?』
Maa ii ka?
Well, whatever

(まいやん)
「あなたはいつも言ってたよね
世界で一番親友だって
今の今まで信じてたけど
私の元カレと浮気した?」
(Maiyan)
“Anata wa itsumo itteta yo ne
Sekai de ichiban shin’yuu da tte
Ima no ima made shinjiteta kedo
Watashi no moto kare to uwakishita?”
(Maiyan)
“You’re always saying it, right?
‘I’m your best friend in the world!’
I’ve been believing you since then but
you cheated with my ex boyfriend?”

(まなったん)
「ウチらは家が近かったし、
幼稚園のときから一緒だから
好きなケーキも好きな動物も
好きな彼氏も似てるよね?」
(Manattan)
“Uchira wa ie ga chikakatta shi,
Youchien no toki kara issho dakara
Sukina keeki mo sukina doubutsu mo
Sukina kareshi mo niteru yo ne?”
“Our houses are near to each other,
We’ve been together since in kindergarten
Our favorite cakes and animals are same
Even we like the same boyfriend, right?

しょうがないかも
気が合う二人
好きになるのも
同じタイミング
付き合い始めたのは
(まいやん) 私が先でしょ?
始めてキスしたのは
(まなったん) 私が先でしょ?
まあいいか?
まあいいか?
Shouganai kamo
Ki ga au futari
Suki ni naru no mo
Onaji taimingu
Tsukiaihajimeta no wa
(Maiyan) Watashi ga saki desho?
Hajimete kisu shita no wa
(Manattan) Watashi ga saki desho?
Maa ii ka?
Maa ii ka?
I guess it can’t be helped
Both of us gets along
We like someone
At the same time
The one who started dating
(Maiyan) I was the first one, right?
The one who kissed
(Manattan) I was the first one, right?
Well, whatever
Well, whatever

(まなったん)
「私に嘘はつかないって
ケンカをした後指切りしたね
仕事忙しいって言ってたけど
昨日合コンしたんだって?」
(Manattan)
“Watashi ni uso wa tsukanai tte
Kenka wo shita ato yubikirishita ne
Shigoto isogashii tte itteta kedo
Kinou goukon shitanda tte?”
(Manattan)
“You told me you won’t tell lies to me
We pinky-swore after got into a fight
You said you were busy with work, but
I heard you went to a mixer yesterday!”

(まいやん)
「もちろん誘いたかったけど
誰かの紹介嫌いだったよね?
ある日突然巡り合うような
運命でなきゃ恋じゃない」
(Maiyan)
“Mochiron sasoitakatta kedo
Dareka no shoukai kirai datta yo ne?
Aru hi totsuzen meguriau you na
Unmei denakya koi janai”
(Maiyan)
“Of course I wanted to invite you
But you said you hate to get introduced to someone, am I right?
It doesn’t count as romance if
it is not fated to happen across someone”

どっちにしても
縁遠いよね
占いなんて
外れてばかり
彼氏がいないことに
(まなったん) なんだか慣れちゃった
彼氏がいなくたって
(まいやん) それなりに楽しい
まあいいか?
まあいいか?
Docchi ni shitemo
Endooi yo ne
Uranai nante
Hazurete bakari
Kareshi ga inai koto ni
(Manattan) Nandaka narechatta
Kareshi ga inakutatte
(Maiyan) Sorenari ni tanoshii
Maa ii ka?
Maa ii ka?
Either way,
We have little prospect of marriage*)
Things like divinations
They are always miss
Being not having a boyfriend round
(Manattan) I’m getting used to it
Not having a boyfriend
(Maiyan) I enjoy my life as it is
Well, whatever
Well, whatever

まあいいか?しょうがない
まあいいか?しょうがない
Maa ii ka? Shouganai
Maa ii ka? Shouganai
Well, whatever. It can’t be helped
Well, whatever. It can’t be helped

いつもあなたといれば
寂しくなんかないから
ずっと後を追いかけて
金魚のフンでいようね
Itsumo anata to ireba
Samishiku nanka nai kara
Zutto ato wo oikakete
Kin’gyou no fun de iyou ne
As long as I’m with you
I don’t feel lonely at all
I’ll forever follow you
Let’s tag along together

もし彼氏ができても
(まいやん) スネたりはしない
もし彼氏ができても
(まなったん) 仲良くできるわ
Moshi kareshi ga dekitemo
(Maiyan) Sunetari wa shinai
Moshi kareshi ga dekitemo
(Manattan) Nakayoku dekiru wa
If you get a boyfriend
(Maiyan) I won’t sulk
If you get a boyfriend
(Manattan) I still can get along with you

ホントはどうかしら?
(まいやん) 絶対許さない
ホントはどうかしら?
(まなったん) 早く別れさせたい
まあいいか?
まあいいか?
まあいいか?
まあいいか?
まあ……
よくないって!
Honto wa doukashira?
(Maiyan) Zettai yurusanai
Honto wa doukashira?
(Manattan) Hayaku wakaresasetai
Maa ii ka?
Maa ii ka?
Maa ii ka?
Maa ii ka?
Maa…
Yokunai tte!
Honestly speaking?
(Maiyan) I absolutely won’t let that happen
Honestly speaking?
(Manattan) Hurry, break up already
Well, whatever
Well, whatever
Well, whatever
Well, whatever
Well…
As if we’d say that!

 

Okay, that’s all.
A catchy music with unique lyrics, and MAIYAN’S RAP AND KUROISHI??? Those are the reason why I really like this song. Can’t wait to watch the MV <3

Now…
I’ll continue checking my partner’s translation of “Sayonara no Imi” fanfic and then translate my parts.

*) It’s kinda hard to translate the word 縁遠い (endooi) in this context. If someone knows a better translation for this word, kindly let me know m(_ _)m

Shiraishi Mai’s 2017 Seitansai Project (Dating & Lovey-Dovey)

I started wrinting this at 8:41 PM (GMT+7)… I’m not sure if I can make it before 10 PM… But let me give it a try.

Here, in my country, Saturday night is well-known as a night where couple goes out for hanging. Don’t ask me why I’m staying at home and writing this. This is my happiness. Nuff’ said. lol

It’s just a few hours before the day changes in Japan. So I’ll try to write it quick.

最近、いくちゃんとある約束をしました。

Lately, I promised something with Ikuchan.

 

それは…
That promise is…

 

 

 

 

「プリクラを撮りに行く」こと。…え?
to take a photo together in a photo booth. …what?

 

 

 

 

いくちゃんがプリクラ撮るって…想像つきますか?笑
Can you imagine…Ikuchan’s taking photos in a photo booth? lol

 

 

私の中では、休みの日はピアノ弾いて勉強して、またピアノ弾いてー…ってイメージがあるのヽ(´o`;
In my image, Ikuchan will play piano, study, and then play the piano again in her days offヽ(´o`;

 

 

そんないくちゃんも、プリクラ撮ったりするって言ってたから約束したんだ!
But she said that she took some photos in photo booth few times so we promised to take one together!

そして、お買い物も行くんだ!
And we will also go for shopping!

 

 

 

ん〜〜、シャッチョさん楽しみデス〜!
Hmmm, Mrs. Prezdirector, I’m really looking forward to this~!

 

 

 

今日も隣でいきなりボイパをやり出したり、元気いっぱいないくちゃんです♡笑
Today, she was beside me and suddenly doing a voice percussion. A usual lively Ikuchan♡lol

An exclusive model and the president director will go for a date. lol

ついに、いくちゃんとプリクラを撮ってきました!!!
Finally, I took a photo with Ikuchan in a photo booth!!!

 

 

ずっと前から約束してたんだけどお互い予定合わなくて…この前空き時間ができたから、雨の中行ってきちゃいました♡

We promised for some time ago, but our timings wouldn’t match each other… Few days ago, we’ve got a break time and used it to go to a photo booth. Although it was raining but we went there♡

 

私たちの異様なテンションの高さ。

おかしすぎて絶対他には見せられません笑

Our high spirits were above normal.
It was way too ridiculous so we won’t show the photos lol

 

 

いくちゃん、いや、首領今度はご飯にでも行こうねo(^▽^)o
Ikuchan, I mean, Boss, let’s go for a dinner next time o(^▽^)o

 

 

Why you two so stingy!! We wanted to see the photo you two took!! My eyesight will goes bad if I try too much zooming to see the picture =__=

いくちゃんブログを見ればお分かりですが、

I’m sure you all already knew if you read Ikuchan’s blog.
やっと!念願の!

初、宝塚に行ってきました〜〜〜!!

Finally! The long waited!
For the first time, we went to watch Takarazuka~~~!!

 

きらびやかでかっこよくて素敵で、、、

一瞬にして宝塚の世界観に吸い込まれました!

It was gorgeous, cool, and beautiful…
I was absorbed to the world of Takarazuka for a moment!

言葉では表せないくらい魅力的で、感動!

I can’t put into the words how fascinating it was!

 

またいつか観にいけたらいいなo(^_^)o

I hope I can go to watch it again next time o(^_^)o

 

 

 

いくちゃんありがとう!!
Ikuchan, thank you!!

 

The promised date from the day when Ikuchan gave the pair ticket of Takarazuka as valentine gift to Maiyan.  One of the best episode of NogiDoko <3

151215 Happiness(o^_^o)

そして、いくちゃんに…
And then, Ikuchan did this to me…

 

 

 

 

壁ドン…
A kabedon

 

されました。

She did it.

 

えりか流壁ドン。

Erika’s style of kabedon.

 

 

 

 

ああ、好き。幸せ♡
Ahh, I love it. I’m in bliss♡

 

THE LAST PICT ALSJHGRUH NOW KISS!!!

If my memory serves me well, in this blog post, Maiyan was also doing a lovey-dovey thing with Sayurin. Geez, what a player lol

By the way, I have an idea for a Karaage Sisters x Maiyan FF. The idea was inspired by a story in a Nogikoi 2017 New Year event. The plan to write it down? I don’t know. I disappointed so many readers already. I don’t want to redo same mistakes. So…please give me some time to think m(_ _)m

160802 Oshi(o^_^o)

いくちゃんブログにも載せてあったけど、本番前にキメの写真を。
They’re also posted on Ikuchan’s blog, here are some photos of us doing a model-like poses.

 

最近二人でいると、自然にキメポーズをとってしまいます。笑
Lately, when we’re together, we do this pose naturally. lol

 

楽しいのよ、彼女といると♡
It’s so fun being with kanojo ♡

 

 

皆さんに伝わってるかは分からないけど、、、
I’m not sure if it you get it or not…

 

 

この前のシブヤノオトの中継も、生田さんの肩にもたれてよしよしされてるところを放送されてしまったみたいで。
Few days ago in a live broadcast of Shibuya no Oto, the scene where I leaned my head on Ikuta-san’s shoulder and she patted my head got broadcasted.
 

焦りました、わたしたち、、、笑
We were panicked… lol

 

 

いくちゃんは甘えさせてくれるの。
Ikuchan always spoils me.

 

 

それが嬉しくてよくじゃれあってます。
I’m so happy for that and we always being playful each other.

 

逆もね♡
The opposite version ♡

 

 

 

今日は生田スペシャルでしたヽ(*´з`*)ノ
Today is Ikuta Specialヽ(*´з`*)ノ

 

I was a little hesitated in translating the word じゃれあう (jareau). It’s from じゃれる (jareru) which has these meanings.

I REALLY WANT TO USE THE 2ND MEANING BUT IT WOULD BE A LITTLE TOO MUCH!!!

And I guess I don’t have to explain again why I didn’t translate the word kanojo. lol

I’ve got some information from a Japanese forum regarding this topic. But I can’t find the scanlation and the exact source. I’ll translate it nevertheless. Here we go.

From FLASH interview

Reporter: How do you feel being called a ‘Goddess’ by so many people?
Maiyan: Indeed fans are calling me like that. But a ‘Goddess’ to me is always be Ikuchan (Ikuta Erika). She is like an adorable little sister to me. And I like her since then!

Wow!! I really want to read the actual article!

To me, and some IkuMai shippers out ther, Maiyan is the Goddess and Ikuchan is the Angel. A perfect match for me to worship. lol

 

Okay, I couldn’t make it. Let me do this first…

MAIYAN!! HAPPY 25TH BIRTHDAY!!! <3333

Please stay in Nogizaka for a little while until I can see you in person :*

 

Okay, back to the topic.

Next one is an interview from a certain magazine. I don’t know which one though…

―You two have different ages but are first generation in the group. Also, Shiraishi-san’s oshimen is Ikuta-san. First of all, can you tell us you two’s relation?

Maiyan: Ikuchan is like a cute little sister to me. We usually play together.

Ikuchan: Maiyan is like an elder sister but she is more than that to me. That’s why I don’t have to worry for being all clingy to her.

Maiyan: Being clingy is one of cute sides of you!  You have an open attitude, and our wavelengths are matched. Just for being together, it’s a pure fun to me.

 

YOU TWO, GO GET A ROOM!!!

I want to go to sleep now and dream of them…

Next, from Maiyan’s 755. (screenshots will be added later)

Fan: Thanks for your hard work <3 Please send a 2shot of Maiyan and Ikuchan
Maiyan: <3

Maiyan:

I like the way Maiyan replied fan’s message with just a heart icon. So many meanings behind it <3

Another one,

Fan: Maiyan, I see that you’re really close with Ikuchan lately
Maiyan: Not lately, but since the beginning

<333333

There was a fan asked her what’s the highlight for Ray’s Feb, 2015 issue is, Maiyan answered; “It has Ikuchan in it!”

And it seemed that Maiyan joined 755 earlier than Ikuchan. When Maiyan knew that Ikuchan joined too, she said in her 755 like this

まいやん:「私のいくちゃん!!」
Maiyan: MY IKUCHAN!!

lol!! What a possessive nee-san you’re Maiyan =))

With that being said, she immediately follow Ikuchan’s 755.

 

Well, so far, that’s all I could present to you. I still have about 2 more topics for this project. I’ll post it soon.

 

Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MAIYAN <3

Shiraishi Mai’s 2017 Seitansai Project (Absurdity)

It reminds me of what Himetan said to Ikuchan in ANN 2 weeks ago;

Himetan: This woman is absurd!

It wasn’t a literal translation. But I thought ‘absurd’ is the nearest word to ‘yabai‘ in that context.

And Maiyan is one of members who complies Ikuchan absurdities. Besides, Maiyan also has similar quirks after all.

Ah… What a beautiful scenery…

In Nogibingo!4’s Nogiroom episode 1, Maiyan talked about a behind the scene story of Oto ga Denai Guitar MV filming.

Before the filming started, Ikuchan wanted to fill in Maiyan’s eyebrow for one side. Since they still had some time to spare, Maiyan let her do it. But the result was disappointing =)) Well, what were you hoping from a kid with weird art senses?

Let’s move to Maiyan’s blog posts while I’m trying to remember more absurd moments of (believe it or not, I was about to write AtsuMina ; ___; ) IkuMai

120228 My Fair Skin is My Charming Point(o^_^o)

レッスンわずです!
We were having lesson!

あれれ~?
Hmm~?

二人ニセモノが混ざってる!
Two counterfeits are mingled!

みなみがさゆりんごで、いくちゃんがなーちゃんです!笑
Sayuringo as Minami and Naachan as Ikuchan! lol

いくちゃんのブログに貼ってあった画像を真似して撮ってみました。
This photo I took is inspired by the photo in Ikuchan’s blog post.

いくちゃん、ごめんね( ; ; )
I’m sorry, Ikuchan( ; ; )

I don’t know which one. Never ending digging Ikuchan blog posts since last year orz

120325 Nagoya Individual—(o^_^o)

握手会終了後、私の推しメン大好きないくちゃんと変顔パシャり。
When we are done with the handshake event, I took a photo with my lovely oshimen; Ikuchan in a weird faces.

AAAAAA!!!! I SHOULD HAVE POSTED THIS IN “OSHIMEN” SECTION!!! ; A ;

Haste makes waste orz

Well, put that aside. I like the way Maiyan shows her proud of having Ikuchan as oshimen <3

120522 Please be Sunny Tomorrow(o^_^o)

それと昨日、いくちゃんに七千円貸す夢を見ました(@ ̄ρ ̄@)
I saw a dream where Ikuchan asked me to lend 7,000 yen(@ ̄ρ ̄@)

タクシー乗るからお金貸して!と言われ、最初は五千円渡すが「足りない」と言われさらに千円渡す。
She said, “I’ll take a cab so lend me some money!”. At first, I gave her 5,000 yen but then she said “Not enough” so I gave her 2,000 yen in addition.

だけどまだ「足りない」と言われ、さらに千円渡して「オッケー」と言ってタクシーで去って行くと言う…何とも言えない夢(笑)
But she said “Not enough” again. I added more 2,000 yen and finally she said “Okay~” and then went away using a cab…What an indescribable dream (lol)

え、えりか様ぁぁぁぁあ!泣
E-Erika-samaaaaaaa! *cries*

Ikuchan is absurd even in Maiyan’s dream LOL

Next two blog posts are a sequel. Here we go.

120719 “I’ll be always Watching Over You”(o^_^o)by ???

ブログのタイトルは、昨日あるメンバーが私に言った一言です。
The title of this blog is the words being told to me by a member yesterday.

 

昨日取材が終わって着替えようとしたら???(あるメンバー)が入って来て、

「まいやん着替えるの?じゃあ一緒にいてあげる〜」
Yesterday, when we were done in an interview, I was about to change my clothes. ??? (certain member) came in and said “Maiyan, are you going to change? Then let me accompany you here!”

 

と言って着替え部屋に入ってきたんだけど、『まったく可愛いな〜』と思いつつも私は???に背を向けて着替えてたらいきなり、
That’s what she said after entering the changing room. I thought, “Geez, you’re so cute~” and then turn my back against her to change my cloths. But suddenly, she said

 

「…ずっと見てるからね〜(ニコニコ)」
“…I’ll be always watching over you~*smiles”

 

って言われてぞくっとしたのさ!!!
I was shocked!!!

 

顔がマジだったのでちょっと怖かったけど、着替え終わるまでずっと見守っててくれました♪( ´▽`)笑
Her face was serious that made me a little scared but she really watched over me until I finished changing♪( ´▽`) lol

 

さーて、ここで皆さんに問題です!
Now, here’s the question for everyone!

私に「ずっと見てるからね」と言ってきたあるメンバーとは誰のことでしょう?!
Who was the one said “I’ll be always watching over you”?

 

1.いくちゃん 2.さゆりん
1. Ikuchan       2. Sayurin
3.生駒ちゃん 4.ゆったん
3. Ikoma-chan    4. Yuttan

 

答えは次のブログで(^○^)
I’ll reveal the answer in my next post(^○^)

I guess you already know the answer. Since I’m focusing this post to IkuMai, I guess it’s obvious lol

120720 Revenge(o^_^o)

そして!
皆さんお待ちかね(o^^o)←
And then!
Everyone’s long waited answer(o^^o)←

 

質問の答えを発表します♪
Here goes the answer♪

 

皆さんの答えは一番ゆったんが多かったけど、実はゆうりじゃありません!
Most of you answered Yuttan, but you all wrong!

 

一緒にプライドポーズをする…
The right one is the one who did pride pose together with me…

 

 

そう!
正解は、いくちゃんでした(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))
Yes!
The right answer is Ikuchan(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

 

逆にいくちゃんって答えた人が一番少なかったかな?
当たった方おめでとう!凄い!
It seems those who answered Ikuchan are the least.
Congrats to those who got the right answer! Bravo!

 

普段こんなこと言わないいくちゃんだから、私の「まったく可愛いな〜」がヒントになってました♪( ´▽`)
It’s unusual of Ikuchan for saying such things. That’s why my “Geez, you’re so cute~” was a hint♪( ´▽`)

 

着替え終わって、何故か今まで使ってた自分の化粧ポーチを私にあげようか?と言って来たところも…まったく可愛いね♡
After finished changing, out of the blue, she asked “can I have that?” while pointing at a make-up pouch I’ve been using…she really is cute, right?♡

 

ということで、私はいくちゃんに見守られながら(いや、見られながら。)お着替えをしていましたとさっ(^_-)
That’s the story of me being watched over (no, actually being watched all over) while changing(^_-)

 

ちゃんちゃん♪
The end♪

IKUCHAN! YOU SERIOUSLY JUST STOOD THERE AND WATCHED HER CHANGING????

Oh,no… It’s getting late. My delusion escalates…

120705 Positive?(o^_^o)

Do~n!

“My dear Erika-sama”

Yes, you can have her, Maiyan. But promise me to be always with her all time!

120608 Broadcast Tonight(o^_^o)

そう言えばね、このくまさん。
By the way, this stuffed bear…

可愛い可愛くないは別として、この前徳島行く飛行機の中でいくちゃんが名前付けてくれたの♪
Let’s put aside whether it’s cute or not. When we were boarding a plane to go to Tokushima, Ikuchan gave a name to this bear♪

なんだと思う?
What do you think the name is?


 

「ムッシュ・ハリー」
“Monsieur Harry”

 

Wow(笑)
Wow (lol)

胸の国旗はイギリスだけど、ムッシュ。
このこはフランスの子ですね♪
It has England flag on its chest but Monsieur.
So this bear is from France♪

 

最近いくちゃんの話ばっかでごめんなさい。
だって仲良しなんだもーん♡
Sorry to keep bringing Ikuchan in my post.
It can’t be helped, we are so close after all♡

 

生田社長ネタならたくさんあるから、また書きたいと思います!

121102 “Mommy will protect you”(o^_^o)

題名の言葉はいくちゃんに言われた一言σ(・・*)
The title is the words that being told to me by Ikuchan σ(・・*)
すっぴんの顔を見るや否や、「まいやんのすっぴんいいよね〜お母さん守ってあげるよ〜」
Right after seeing my no-make-up face, she said to me “I like your no-make-up face~ Let mommy protect you~”

って何故かお母さんになりきったいくちゃんに言われました。笑
Ikuchan acted like a mother and said that to me. lol
…ここは素直に守ってもらおうかな(〃▽〃)
…I’ll accept her kind offer and be protected then(〃▽〃)

They are changing roles lol

 

I’m done with the blog posts translation. And to this point, I couldn’t think of ant other trivia regarding this topic. I’m beaten by my fatigue… o<-<
