just my personal feeling on these interviews

they rarely ask them about their instruments, gears, musicality, etc... you know...stuff about music...and when they do its just on a surface level?

it sort of feels like the one doing the interviews are treating them like idols.

but these are also genuinely nice to get to know them more personally Happy

I think in this particular interview its for a non music related magazine and seems to questions from fans so questions can really vary and its pretty much a get to know you kinda session. I like these kinda quick 100 questions, amusing to read.

Yeah, the gear questions come in magazines like "Go! Go! Guitar" or "GiGS", which they appear in regularly. I'm actually not sure how much more there is for them to say about their gear, they talk about it so much. On the other hand, they're not particularly technical so unlike some bands, they don't go into too much detail.

I thought this interview was pretty awesome, and she sounds exactly like the image of her I have in my head. Some of her answers sounded really smart, some sounded really sweet, all were very simple and to the point. She never beats around the bush or tries to be diplomatic. "Who did you think would be the biggest problem child?" "Rina." Not "Oh, everyone was trying their best, we all have our issues" or something, like you'd hear from a lot of people. Just right out with it, totally honest in all these answers.

I also found it funny how the theme of the interview seemed to be "alcohol".

Thank you for the translations.

I like these interviews when they go into more personal stuff so we can get to know more about haruna the person instead of just the star, I like these questions too they seem personal and it gives you the vibe that the interviewer really knows what to ask, great!

I thought Mami would be the least likely to marry. But I guess she's hooked up with someone for Haruna to answer like that.

maybe because she is the most reliable of the 4 ? ive also read somewhere that when they first met mami 1st impression is like she's like a mom and i think that also apply why she chose mami if deserted in an island, besides mami for me really has a strong appeal thats why i call her a rare type of woman

but still..

Yeah I see that too. Haruna wasn't even always a rocker, although she always *looked* more rebellious than the others to me. She looked pretty mean in some of their early stuff, which I liked. I feel like she's mellowed some since their early days, but she still sounds pretty unfiltered, but smarter and more mature.

Btw, I will not imagine one day Haruna go on stage with a bottle of Jack Daniel like Sebastian Bach haha!

I can definitely imagine it, someday, once they enter the next stage of their career. (The stage when they can really do whatever they want. Give it a few more years.)

But she obviously loves alcohol, like a real rock star Happy

Good solution to losing the bass Wink 

Carole King! Yeah! She's got her singer songwriter albums of course but before that she was part of defining pop and rock as we know it writing songs for others in the Brill Building. All those classic girl group and boy band hits of the 60s she wrote. Just watched the Carole King musical in London this summer.

Q55 sounds a bit arrogant when it comes after Q36 (What's a life lesson you've discovered while continuing for 10 years? / Life's a joke. > that was deep tomo). Tomomi might trick people with her always positive and sunny personality, but she's really serious and profound feelings and thoughts.

I really loved her pro and cons about the other girls too
