I would like to share with you a collaboration effort by inala, jinpi-moe, watchful21 and myself. This is a translation based of inala's audio recording (and written reports) about the 12:00 and 16:00 MC part of NEWS' Winter Party "Diamond" show that she was lucky to attend on October 26th (SENDAI). Some episodes are too cute & hilarious, we felt we must share it with the fandom. The MC part was 20 min long and so we composed it as digest.
For now, I will post the 4pm show (PART 2), and the 12 noon show (PART 1) will be posted soon.
[Massu's weird behavior]
K_ Massu, can you stop making your own “Massu space” in our dressing
room? You occupy the space with your bottles like water, water, water,
and tea. Then you say, “I’ve got to go to the bathroom.” You deserve it!
M_ I don’t go to bathroom that often. Though, when I go, there’s only a
strawberry that comes out.
S _ Really? Then do it now. Can you show us strawberries coming out from
Hey, hey, hey!
(P starts dancing by himself.)
K_ Yamap got bored (laugh). Can you please stop practicing?
R _ Massu, you put tissues under your palms when you do push-ups, don’t
M _ Just because the floor was too dirty, I was going to wipe up the floor
with tissues. But the tissues just got stuck on my palms so I thought to
myself it worked OK. Even when I dance, I hover my palms above the
floor, about 1cm.
R_ You’re way too obsessed (with being clean)!
S_ And in the train, Massu never puts his bag on the floor.
M_ You don’t have to put your bag on the floor, you just put it on your lap.
I get very upset if someone puts my stuff on the floor.
R_ Why don’t you be a paperman for your solo? Not Massuperman?
M_ With being wrapped by tissues?
R_ I thought I wasn’t being filmed. I was wondering why the monitor screen
shook. It was me burping!
P_ I graduated from my university in September, and had a graduation
ceremony. There were reporters to film so all the graduating students
there got together at once. But the students next to me were ones I’ve
never seen before.
K_ Even if it was the graduation ceremony?
P_ Yap, it was like “It’s nice to meet you”, even though we graduated
together. On many occasions, I’m asked like, “How long did you take to
graduate from your school?” So, for it to sound like “4 years”, I
mumble, like “4 YEARS and jhxfltuhj…..”
K_Tegoshi, will you stop wearing a bathrobe without putting your
S_ Right! Just like today, when I was eating abura-age (fried bean curd),
there’s your abura-age in front of my eyes, I mean your ‘frank and
beans’. (T/N: In the Japanese text, Shige directly said “chinchin” and
“balls”, but I substituted ‘frank and beans’ instead.)
In the shower room too, Tegoshi danced to me like “wow wow wow
wow” (“Love Revolution” Morning-Musume), and his privates shook as
well. “wow wow wow wow”
(Audience screamed “Kya~~~~~!!!”)
K_ What do you guys “Kya~~~!!!” about!?
S_ Then Tegoshi disappeared to go to the bathroom, and I started feeling
that I didn’t want to lose to him, so I waited for him as I stood straight
like a naked king. But somehow Massu came in. He took a look at me
and said “Oh, sorry”, then he just closed the door.
P_ The dressing room is mirrored, isn’t it? So we could see Tego’s ‘thing’
through the mirror. I had to see it when I was eating udon noodles. I was
almost going to throw up.
T_ Ima ha~ (Tego started dancing “Ai no Matador”)
K_ I’ve seen many uchiwas printed with the pose, the “EMERGENCY
EXIT” sign ones.
S_ I was so glad that there’re no more Kojima Yoshio’s uchiwas anymore.
P_ Guess what’s next? No underwear prince?
T_ That's supposed to be me, isn't that?
