rankingbox, a site that features a person of interest's "BEST3" things, has posted lists from SCANDAL.


HARUNA:

Loving the magic that tickled her heart as a child! SCANDAL ・HARUNA's BEST3 favorite works in particular within the 『Harry Potter』 series

SCANDAL released their 6th original album 『HELLO WORLD』 on 12/3. Their unique, catchy rock is overflowing with a dazzling light. We asked vocalist & guitarist HARUNA, who loves the 『Harry Potter』 movie series, what her favorite BEST3 works are in particular.


『Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2』

The climax of the series. The story starts from when the most evil villain Voldemort scars a newly born Harry Potter's forehead. Voldemort really is the most evil villain, killing off more and more of the most powerful people in the Ministry of Magic. But, Harry was the only one who didn't die. Harry heads towards his final battle with Voldemort while unraveling mysteries one after the other. (Released in 2011)


『Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1』

The story progresses with Harry Potter and his best friends Ron and Hermione. Ron and Hermione have obviously been at each other's throats for a long time, but they've been jealous of the love affairs each have had with those in their dormitories and such. For these two who couldn't be honest with each other, they finally start getting closer in part 1 and learn that that romance is a good thing. If you had been a fan and had been closely watching them since 『Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone』, those "Hurry up and get together" thoughts were finally rewarded. (Released in 2010)


『Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets』

This is the second work in the series, but I think that this work is definitely the most fun to watch even for people who don't like the Harry Potter series that much. The feelings of fantasy are really strong in the first two works in the series. There are things like a flying car and a cloak that makes you invisible to your enemies when you put it on, and many things like "I wish magic was real" can tickle a child's mind. It's an easy-to-understand story. (Released in 2002)


MAMI:

Always reading 「Shonen Jump」 starting from the back (laughs). SCANDAL・MAMI's BEST3 interesting manga series that she's read lately

SCANDAL released their 6th original album 『HELLO WORLD』 on 12/3. Their unique, catchy rock is overflowing with a dazzling light. We asked guitarist & vocalist MAMI who loves manga what the BEST3 interesting manga series are that she's read lately.


『TERRA FORMARS』 (Shueisha) Author: Yu Sasuga / Illustrations: Kenichi Tachibana

I began reading this after it was recommended to me at the salon. It's a story about humans VS cockroaches. The cockroaches are really strong, so, in order for humans to have the same amount of power, they undergo surgery that incorporates elements of insects into them. The humans that have undergone surgery go fight against the cockroaches. It's fun to imagine what insect you'd be incorporated with if it was you in the story. The most powerful one among the insects is actually the ant, and being introduced to the ecology of insects one by one is interesting.


『Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)』 (Kodansha) Author: Hajime Isayama

Firstly, a titans VS humans theme hasn't been a likely one until now. The story gradually progresses, and those battles turn into human VS human. I don't know what'll happen next since it's still ongoing, but beginning to read this was the correct choice. Also, a separate series of the story of how the titans were born into this world in the first place before Volume 1 is out too. Including that, this is a series that's worthwhile reading in many ways.


『Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san (Sexy Commando Side Story: That's Amazing!! Mr. Masaru)』 (Shueisha) Author: Kyosuke Usuta

I recently reread this and laughed a lot. It's really surreal, and this was the first manga that I had ever read. I started to read without really understanding it. I was influenced by my older brother who was a fan of (Shonen) Jump. This manga was in the back of each issue, so I would always read Jump starting from the back (laughs). A character called "Meso" appears in the series. I can't put into words what Meso is, but it's really cute.


RINA:

The first work where she tasted the sorrows of being an adult!? SCANDAL・RINA's BEST3 movies/DVDs she's seen this year that have stayed in her heart

SCANDAL released their 6th original album 『HELLO WORLD』 on 12/3. Their unique, catchy rock is overflowing with a dazzling light. We asked drummer & vocalist RINA who loves movies what the BEST3 movies/DVDs she saw this year that have stayed in her heart.


『Jersey Boys』

A movie that makes me believe that music is great. The Four Seasons' song 「Can't Take My Eyes Off You」 is famous. I learned through this movie what kind of band they were and the details about how that song was born, and when I listened to the same song again I could feel twice as much as before. There's a scene where they take their band's name from the neon sign of a store, which is what we also did, and I found myself spontaneously grinning during it.


『Betty Blue』

This is the first French movie I had ever seen. Although it's an old movie, it's a famous one. It's a story about two lovers, and the woman who was looking forward to her child being born goes from knowing what she can't do to getting rapidly sicker....... That sadness was the first time I tasted the sorrows of being an adult. I thought about how there definitely must be times when adults want to run away barefoot. It really made my heart hurt, but I thought that this is an ultimate love.


『A Perfect World』

It's in my hall of fame of favorite movies thus far, but it ranks #3 this year. It's the first movie I had ever seen in my life. I've decided to watch it every October because this movie's story takes place in October around Halloween. Two fugitives raid a house, kidnap a child, and the three of them set off on a journey. Along the way, the kind-hearted fugitive shoots the truly evil fugitive to death. There's a scene where the two who are left write down in a notebook what they've wanted to do until then. I really like that scene.


TOMOMI:

Her reward for eating all of her dinner when she was little. SCANDAL・TOMOMI's BEST3 favorite ice creams

SCANDAL released their 6th original album 『HELLO WORLD』 on 12/3. Their unique, catchy rock is overflowing with a dazzling light. We asked bassist & vocalist TOMOMI who 「eats it every day even now」 what her BEST3 favorite ice creams are.


Vanilla ice cream in 「Takano Fruit Parlor」's fruit parfait

Vanila ice cream is something you can refer to with "This was made with ~milk," and it's almost like you can be like, 「Aah, this certainly is delicious」. But only this ice cream is so delicious that it's not enough no matter how much you eat! It's really full-bodied without being overly sweet. I like fruit and ice cream as well, but I can never fully finish eating a dessert parfait itself. But, this is the only one that I can finish eating even though it's large, because the vanilla ice cream truly is delicious.


「Glico」 Papico's chocolate coffee flavor

I seriously cannot drink coffee; I can't even eat coffee candy. However, this one from Papico is the only one that I really like! It's great that you can split a Papico into two because, when you finish eating the first one, you can relish in the joy of, "Ahー, there's still one more left." I often eat ice cream after getting out of the bath, and Papico, which is in between the texture of sherbet and ice cream, is just right.

「Glico」 Panapp's grape flavor

Panapp has recently been all about millefeuille and has many layers of sauce on it, but I like the original Panapp. I've liked ice cream for a long time and still eat it every day (laughs). When I was little I would get ice cream as a reward for eating all of my dinner. This was the ice cream I ate then. I like the grape flavor. When you open the lid on the original ice cream there's sauce in it in the shape of a face, which is really cute.

As a Potterhead I pretty much agree with what Haru said, although I wouldn't really put Chamber of Secrets 3rd; I'd actually put Prisoner of Azkaban there instead~!

"Hurry up and get together" thoughts are pretty much what everyone's thinking when watching both Deathly Hallows movies lol. I remember watching the second Deathly Hallows film and when Ron and Hermione kissed everyone, including myself, in the cinema yelled out 'finally!', haha.

Yes Haru, I still wish that magic was real — I'm still waiting for my super late acceptance letter to Hogwarts :p

I agree with 2 of Haru's choices. I would replace Deathly Hallows Pt 1 with The Order of the Phoenix tho.
The introduction of Luna, the creation of DA, intro to Umbridge, the fight at the Ministry between Voldy and Dumbledore, Bellatrix killing Sirius, it's just full of so many big moments.

Mami's first choice sounds like an interesting manga :O
I've never heard of that one but her description makes me wanna read it lol

I've read the Attack on Titan and TERRA FORMARS before. They're really cool~ I'll definitely read up that third one haha.
Haruna really sounds like a Potterhead~ I love it haha. I'd probably choose and rank them as : Order of the Phoenix (bc Luna Lovegood~), HPDHPart2(omg their children are so cute), and then Chamber of Secrets.
(Wanna go to Hogwarts! I want a Slytherin robe too! yup, I'm Slytherin haha
I'm sorry, I just ship Harry and Hermoine! I don't hate Ron! It's just that. Hahaha, i don't know. just all through out, I was like "Harry and Hermoine please. Not the Weasleys." I don't hate them, okay. XD)

Okay, I admit. I got to read TERRA FORMARS because of Mami. She always seem to have interesting choices when it comes to manga and anime.  Nice One And most of the time, we have the same interests and choices.

Spoiler:
TERRA FORMARS is... really cool. It's a sci-fi manga that got me so interested because it has so much to resolve, not just the cockroaches, but with other humans too. I don't want to spoil the details, but really, it's an amazing manga in my opinion. As for Attack on Titan, I've only watched the anime but it's also good, although I'm a bit discouraged by the manga's artwork. TERRA FORMARS and Attack on Titan have their similarities, particularly the struggle of humankind to fight against extremely powerful beings. Although dark, grim and full of utterly hopeless moments, they are strangely more inspiring than light-hearted stories. The third one is so full of nonsensical events that it's funny. xD I just read the first chapter though.

As for Rina's movies, I haven't seen any of them. xD Maybe I'll get to watch them someday.

I love ice cream and like Tomomi, Vanilla is one of my favorites.  Love I'm also curious about the chocolate coffee because I really like coffee.

I'm not a fan of Harry Potter, though I like the Harry Potter universe with all the magic and stuff like that. Although not in Haru's list, I really enjoyed the first movie, Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone.
