This week on Music Station: Tackey & Tsubasa forget their lyrics, SMAP, E-girls and more perform

13 Sep


Tackey & Tsubasa – Yamanote sen Uchi mawari ~Ai no meiro~
“Travelling around the Yamanote Line ~Lost in love~” is a story of a guy reminiscing about a past love while travelling along the Yamanote Line(subway). It seems like TakkiTsuba have really lost their way as they struggled to recite the subway station names, a highlight during the chorus. It started with Tsubasa repeating “Osaki” after Takki, and even though Takki ignored it, Tsubasa continued to forget his lyrics. An exasperated Takki went “Ah~~!” and stopped dancing to focus on the lyrics, but Tsubasa totally gave up on the lyrics and continued dancing instead. The irony between these 2….anyways though it was surprising to see them making a mistake, their reactions were kinda cute. During the ending, SMAP’s Shingo teased Tsubasa so much that he shrank into himself.

E-girls – Dance dance dance
Probably the best song to define E-girls. These girls are really good at dancing and it shows in their powerful moves. In the middle portion where they execute the Michael Jackson moonwalk, the CENTER (whoever she is) just stole all the limelight with her aura. 

 

SMAP – Ai ga Tomaru Made ha
The guys are winking like crazy in this performance because Music Station did a special corner on the number of winks SMAP members have flashed over the past 24 years. In 1st place is Kimura, followed by Shingo. Nakai has never offered a wink in Music Station’s history.

Idol talk about relationships and graduation on UTAGE Summer Camp Special

19 Aug

This week, the regular guests of UTAGE embarked on a camping trip to Saitama. During the bus ride, topics about idol dating and graduation were brought up.

Morning Musume
NMB48 Sayanee asked ex-morning musume member Yasuda Kei: Did you date anyone while in Morning Musume?
Nakai: Does that mean you have someone?”
Sayanee: Yes…ah no!
Nakai: You just said yes!
Sayanee: *blabbers*
Nakai: How are you going to get around this? Do you mean how to go about hiding the relationship?
Sayanee: Well that could be it as well..
Yasuda: I didn’t have anyone. It was strict in Morning Musume so if there’s someone you like you’ll have to leave the guy or the group.Sometimes, the member would be exposed and she’d graduate..
Nakai: Whose that? Yaguchi right?
Yasuda: Yaguchi was photographed with someone and she quit.
(*This is probably the Oguri Shun incident.)

48Group
Nakai: Sashihara also experienced that? Like going bald or getting exiled somewhere?
Sasshi: Yes, but the punishment is different. Not sure about now but in the past there was punishment.
Nakai: So everyone observes the love ban rule?
Sasshi: Isn’t that the case? *silence dawns*
Nakai: So you girls don’t get into relationships *Sasshi stops responding*
Mayu: Yes. *Sasshi and Minegishi then echoes Mayu.*
Sasshi: During this time, if i declare a No, and in future if i get exposed, i’d get slammed for saying this on UTAGE!
Nakai: Watanabe do you have a boyfriend?
Mayu: No! I’m really careful about it.

E-girls
Aya: We don’t have the rule,but no time to date. The younger members live in a dorm, and after work they’d be sent straight there. Guys and even the parents can’t enter. There’s a curfew too.
Nakai: What if a guy was caught there?
Aya: That’d be a huge problem. Firstly, the members would talk amongst themselves.We set our rules.
Nakai: Would Hiro(LDH CEO) appear?
Aya: He won’t..but he might.

Regarding graduation
Nakai: If you continue this way, you’ll reach 40 sooner or later?
Mayu: But i won’t be in AKB forever.
Nakai: When will you stay on till?
Sasshi: Everyone’s close(to graduating).
Nakai: Watanabe are you graduating soon?
Mayu: I haven’t decided but it’s in my vision now.
Sasshi: I want to quit.
Sayanee: About time to plan..
Sasshi: From now, everyone will be graduating..
Busaiku’s Yokoo: Is that because everyone has their dreams like being an actress?
Sayanee: I want to be a solo artiste.
Minegishi: I haven’t decided yet. Because of that i feel scared of leaving AKB.
Sasshi: I haven’t decided but i won’t be singing anymore.I won’t be an idol too. I want to be in variety but there are many female talents and i’m somehow doing it..
Mayu: I want to do acting seriously, but of course while in AKB, jobs like dramas and stage plays can’t fit in.


There are many pathways these girls can seek after graduation, but i think the long lasting option is to be an actress. Glad Mayu has chosen this path even though she’d do well being a singer any day. That said, she needs to graduate ASAP lest more actress wannabes from AKB enter the industry.
