Re: the "airhead" question.

There are different meanings for the word used in the original Japanese text (天然; tennen) such as "nature/natural," "spontaniety," or even "airhead," "clumsy," etc. I just saw better explanations for the word and I think I went with the incorrect translation; it should actually be "natural." Apologies for that.

So, the question should read, "Why are you such a natural?" As in, "Why are you so naturally good at everything?" The band has mentioned that TOMO can pick up things right away, and in HARU's Q&A (and also MAMI's) she did say that TOMO "handles anything like a pro." It's since been fixed in her Q&A post.

Q41. What would you have done if, at the same timing as forming the band, you were scouted as an actress or model?
Model, if it was at the same timing as forming the band.

Q42. Even though you should be muscular from powerfully playing the drums so cooly, how do you maintain that slenderness?
You get slim if you drum (laughs)! 
These are the questions I always wanna ask the drummer but with her answer to the latter, it still seems like a miracle. We fans are fortunate to have a great drummer.

Q43. Who is your biggest rival as an all-girl band?
SCANDAL
After all these years, Rina still see the band from a fan's perspective!
She is still the No.1 fan of Scandal.

Q45.(From a fan who plays the drums:) I'm kind of stiff, but how can one play the drums as cutely and cooly as RINA?
When you think to play them enjoyably more than playing them correctly, aren't you able to relaxー? I recommend singing the lyrics to yourself while playing! Let's do our best together!
This reminded me of Lars Ulrich. I only mean the "singing the lyrics to yourself".

Q46. (From a fan who wants to be in a SCANDAL copy band:) I want to play the drums, but I'm not good at doing a backing rhythm. What's a trick for doing that?
If you match the parts where the tempo drops to a click track and practice, you should suddenly be able to organize it in your head and your body will be familiar with it! Also, try getting it down to "nothing."
She said it right, even for beginners should practice with a click track/metronome regularly.
A lot of drummers had a hard time recording their first track because they only drum along to the songs of their favourite bands since days one until they have the chance to actually record in the studio.

I always get the feeling that they all see things slightly differently. Haruna and Tomomi both say they have never fought. Rina says they fought on their world tour and you can see it on the documentary (and you can; she got really upset). She also got upset in the NHK documentary. But maybe the others just don't see it, or they think "eh, that's just Rina being Rina."

Tomomi and Haruna also said "probably not" about wearing matching outfits again (boo!) but Rina says "We haven't decided. At that time we'll wear the best outfits!" which sounds like they might, and she wants to. I always get the feeling the others want to do what they want and hope the fans go along, while Rina wants to do what the fans are actually asking for. Both approaches have their pros and cons.

I suspect Rina is kinda emotional - having a fight vs. being upset - it's not the same thing. She's also the youngest, and from what I can tell she's probably treated like the youngest. If Mami wasn't around to keep the three of them working together, it's my opinion that Scandal wouldn't still be together. I really like it when I see Mami and Rina get paired off together, and I think it's healthy that they spend time in one-on-one from time to time with the member of the band they may not naturally be drawn to. But Rina is more important than the 3 of them because she doesn't quite get the same acknowledgement of a job well done that they do, but as the drummer, she get's less of a break from pleasing the crowd. Behind that smile is someone who lost more of her childhood than the others.

Of course, this is all just my ramblings, and I'm probably completely wrong Sweating

She and Haruna both get emotional, but in different ways. Haruna seems like she's naturally an introvert, so when she gets upset she turns inward, and pulls back from other people. You can also see that in the NHK documentary. Rina, though, kind of explodes outward. So yeah, she might think she's fighting, but the others think "oh, she's just upset." But when she gets upset, everybody else gets really quiet. You can tell they don't want to fight.

IIRC, the three times I've seen Rina get upset (there's another one on one of the bonus DVD's), it's been because she thought they didn't do something well enough for the fans. She's an extreme perfectionist, and she also wants to give the fans what they expect to see. So when something goes technically wrong or somebody says or does something differently than they always do, she becomes upset.

I don't think it's just being young, I think it's her personality. I could see her being a producer someday, and putting out some really high quality stuff that the fans love, but also being a really difficult boss to work for because of her expectations.

Barioth!

Play guitar until right before we go on stage.

Q68. Which one kanji character represents you?
「変」 (hen; odd)

Q69. If you could talk to animals, which animal and what would you want to talk about?
I'm told I'm cat-like, so I'd talk to cats. I'd want to know cats' feelings.

Q70. During what kind of times are pictureque songs born, and during what kind of times of tension are they made?
When you listen to your favorite music, you think, 「Ah, I want to do this!」, and by saying 「It'd be great if we did this」, a conversation is born when you talk about it with everyone. The timing that an image or idea for a song comes to mind differs. The order they're made sometimes differs, but in the case of when you're making it together with a song you're writing lyrics for, a lot of the time they're completed at the same time. I've been creating songs together with RINA quite often recently. In this case, I attach a melody that goes with the lyrics that RINA has written.

Q71. Do you still play the guitar before going out?
There are many days where I play before going out. Especially during rehearsal periods and on live days I definitely practice before going out.

Q72. After forming, and until now, what have you been particular about?
Our performances! We want to be an appealing band.

Q73. What fashion item are you currently interested in?
T-shirts (secondhand). I like the way color fades when it's distressed and the worn feeling!

Q74. What's the time frame for making one song?
It's all over the place. Giving a complete form to something I have in my head in one go and completing it at that point in time is the fastest, but there are also times it takes several days after that to modify many things......

Q75. What are your favorite sneakers?
VANS! I like the types with shoe laces.

Q76. You're often told that your arm muscles are awesome. What about your grip strength?
The last time they were measured was in high school, and it might have been left: 31, right: 29......

Q77. What's your favorite onigiri filling?
Tuna mayonnaise, shigure (clam).

Q78. What things do you like about each of the members?
HARUNA: She munches when she eats.

TOMOMI: She accompanies me to escape games and thrill rides.

RINA: She praises all of the songs I make.


Q79. What country would you want play a live in?
Of course I'd want to go to any country!! But, we want to attack South America and countries like Brazil and Chile. Also, Russia. I've been told occasionally I have Russian-like features, but I don't feel like I'm like that. Arbitrarily.

Q80. What kind of practice do you do to become better at palm muting while playing guitar?
I too was really bad at that in the beginning, but I really practiced it when we were recording 「Shoujo S」 to be able to play the phrases in the intro. With your left hand you make sure to mute the frets you're not pressing. With not as much force, with your right hand you should be aware of the strings of the sound you want to play, and go forth with your goal. Decide to absolutely not the stop the 16 beat, and do it until you can do it!

Q81. Which member would be scared to see you mad?
TOMOMI. She hasn't seen me get really mad.

Q82. Which female guitarist do you admire?
She's now a vocalist, but I think Shiina Ringo-san is beautiful. Seeing her in a kimono strumming a guitar blows me away.

Q83. Please share how you do your makeup.
I go easy on the eyeshadow and draw eyeliner on the corner of my eye. Recently, I've often been putting blush from my lower eyelids to my cheeks. The most important thing while doing makeup is eyelashes! For keeping my eyelashes curled.....I curl the bottom lashes too. I choose mascaras that have staying power and won't give me panda eyes!

Q84. What do you want to in your old age?
It's unimaginable, but I want to live surrounded by cats.

Q85. What currently gives you comfort?
Watering and watching the growth of the potted jasmine plant that TOMOMI gave to me as a birthday present.

Q86. Please tell us what music you regularly listen to and your favorite band.
Recently, I've been listening to Awesome City Club often. When I want to get excited, it has to be Foo Fighters.

Q87. What one thing would you say makes you angry about TOMOMI?
She drops things too often or loses them too often.

Q88. How long did it take for you to become good at performing?
I still don't think I'm that good. Days of only practicing......

Q89. What books did you read when you were little? What's a book you've read recently?
I read the manga 『What's Michael?』and 『BONOBONO』 when I was little. Something I've read recently is Ozaki Sekaikan-san's 『Yuusuke』.

Q90. You said 「I don't want to stand out」, but your guitar solos and actions have been showy. What's the reason you've been able to do that?
We've always been aiming to 「move as much as possible during a live」 since the band started. My body now moves naturally.

Q91. What is your favorite song from each album? [Both the question and answer were written in English]
『BEST★SCANDAL』: 「SCANDAL BABY」
『TEMPTATION BOX』: 「Hello!Hello!」
『BABY ACTION』: 「Sparkling」
『Queens are trumps -Kirifuda wa Queen-』: 「Bitter Chocolate」
『STANDARD』: 「Brand new wave」
『HELLO WORLD』: 「Image」
『YELLOW』: 「SUKI-SUKI」
But I like all songs!


Q92. Any tricks for students taking exams?
Self-suggest to yourself 「I can do it, I'll be able to do it, I'll do it, I'll pass!」

Q93. What have you been been most glad about since forming SCANDAL?
Being able to be myself.

Q94. What have you been addicted to recently?
I'm addicted again to Candy Crush.

Q95. What is your favorite sweet right now?
Roll cake from the convenience store.

Q96. Which prefecture do the members all want to go to?
A place we've always been talking about wanting to all go to is an onsen (hot springs). So, we'd start first with a nearby place, Hakone in Kanagawa Prefecture. We'll be able to go soon; we'll go.

Q97. What's the biggest horror story so far of your life?
When I got my first cell phone in my first year of middle school and went a little crazy, the monthy charge was several tens of thousands of yen. My family was furious.

Q98. What recent purchase have you been glad about?
An Imabari bath towel. Drying off with something fluffy every time I bathe feels great! By the way, there's also an Imabari towel in our goods line-up.

Q99. What is it like when you take lead vocals during a live?
I'm beyond nervous, but every time I try challenging myself a bit to sing it differently than on the CD and change the guitar strokes.

Q100. What do you do when you move your fingers while playing guitar?
Isn't practicing fingering (move your index finger to each of the frets on strings 1 or 6, try out things you find online) the quickest way to improve? I can't really do it fast either...... Also, when you warm yourself up in a bath, I think stretching and extending the space between your fingers would be good for people with small hands!

I'll try to do the band interview next!
