"Line of sight" Banners - Thu Mar 16, 2023 8:14 am

I've switched out the MIRROR banners for ones for the upcoming "Line of sight" single!

I might make an entire LOS layout later, after the MV comes out (likely in May)!

Is it strange to not fall in love? HARUNA says to the listener feeling uneasy about love, "You don't have to fall in love like everyone else."

Episode #158 blog

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 7JZIbSg

HARUNA: This week...we'll be reading lots of messages.


I have never been in love before. I still have no desire to fall in love with anyone.

I used to watch romance dramas. Somehow I saw falling in love with someone and taking special care of someone as things that happen because it's a drama series.

But now that I'm older and learned that I don't fall in love, I've realized that when I watch romance dramas, it's not that they're special cases--it's that I'm different, and that I can neither sympathize nor agree with the drama.

Because I don't know, I'd like to know if there is a fine line between the feeling of being special to someone, and the feeling of being in love.

When I watch romance dramas, I feel lonely and empty because I don't understand them, but that's why I'm so interested in them.

SCANDAL, do you think that love exists and is possible because it crosses that borderline?

HARUNA: This one is regarding love advice.

RINA: I think that it can be assumed that dramas are works of fiction, but if you ask if it's happening to a lot of people in real life, I don't think it's equal. However, I do think that dramatic things like grand romance do happen. I don't think it's possible to make a blanket statement on this.

HARUNA: I don't know if there's a borderline between the feeling that someone is especially important to you, and the feeling of being in love...

RINA: This is difficult to answer.

HARUNA: We talked about this before, but I think it's similar to the difference between love and romance...

RINA: You might feel lonely wondering if you have any romantic feelings for someone, but it's possible that you haven't met the right person. Also, asexuality is a trait that some people have where they don't experience romantic feelings. Perhaps you have that trait, but that doesn't mean it's strange at all. I don't want you to blame yourself.

MAMI: We don't live our lives with boundaries in mind. That's why I think it's better not to think too hard about it. The more you keep thinking about whether these feelings mean that you're in love with someone, or whether it's different from not romantically liking someone, the more you'll feel like you're stuck between the two and unable to choose either... That might be what it feels like.

TOMOMI: Not all love is dramatic, so I think there are some romantic feelings that are very difficult to recognize. There may be times when a person you love and care for as a friend develops new feelings for someone else. You may not notice it by an obvious trigger, but rather by a gradual change that is difficult to notice. I think there are cases where there are no boundaries.

HARUNA: I think there are many people who feel the same way as Rira. I think there are types of people who don't take pleasure in being devoted, or wanting to touch and be touched. A little bit of love can be an uplifting feeling. Just because you are in love doesn't mean you have to have physical contact. If you meet someone with similar values, it might be more liberating. I don't think you have to fall in love like everyone else.

"Line of sight" Single Lyrics

Line of sight
Lyrics: RINA ~ Music: MAMI ~ Arrangement: Keita Kawaguchi

one's line of sight hatenai risou
Tomatta mama me wo sorashiteta
Daitai kimatte hiza wo kakaeta yoru ni kagitte
Mabushii hikari ga furu
Kono mama, nigenaide to

Yurayura yuraideiru docchi ga tengoku de jigoku?
Towaie hoshou sareteru basho wa nai kara

Mienai sen de tsunagariatte
Tonariawase oikakeru mirai
Nando datte, shoujun awase naoshite
Kasundeku mono toraetetai yo
Mou nidoto saigirarenai you ni
Nando datte, saisei kurikaeshinagara
Shisen wo awasete sotto unazuita
Watashi wo tomenaide

Wasurekaketa koro kodoku no shuurai
Kono yo wa reisen
Fuhei fuman hikaku hyouka
Iki ga dekinai mujuuryoku no naka de oborenagara

Daremo ga mogaiteiru muon no koe hariage
Tashika ni kikoete kuru oto wo shinjite

Seijaku wo ikki ni tsukiyabutta
Togireta toki wo ugokasu you ni
Nando datte, shoujun awase naoshite
Kanawanai mama owarenakute
Eien ni tsuzuku negai hanatta
Nando datte, saisei kurikaeshinagara
Hoshi ni naru hi made kono shunkan dake wo
Mamorinuite iku no

one's line of sight hanasanaide
Tonariawase oikakeru mirai

Kasundeku mono toraetetai yo
Mou nidoto saigirarenai you ni
Nando datte, saisei kurikaeshinagara

English Translation

one's line of sight - My endless ideals
Were on pause as I looked away
Happening only on nights when I hug my knees to my chest
A blinding light pours down
Telling me not to run away like this

Unsteady and shaking - Which is heaven, and which is hell?
Still, neither one has been guaranteed

Connected by invisible lines
Chasing the future side by side
Realigning our sights over and over again
Wanting to catch hold of what's fading away
So that it'll never slow us down again
As we come back to life over and over again
We lock eyes and nod briefly
Don't stop me

Loneliness attacks when you least expect it
This world's locked in a cold war
Discontent, dissatisfaction, comparison, evaluation
Unable to breathe while drowning in zero gravity

Everyone struggles, raising their silent voices
Believing in the sounds they can hear for certain

Breaking through the silence all at once
As if moving this stopped time
Realigning our sights over and over again
Letting out an unfulfilled, unfinished wish
That'll continue forever
As we come back to life over and over again
We will protect only this moment
Until the day we become part of the stars

one's line of sight - Don't let go
Chasing the future side by side
Realigning our sights over and over again
Wanting to catch hold of what's fading away
So that it'll never slow us down again
As we come back to life over and over again
We lock eyes and nod briefly
Don't stop me

Lyrics & Music: RINA ~ Arrangement: Hibiki Nishikawa

Sanran shiteiru awai omoide
Sayonara wa iwanai haru no toori ame
Chiisana karada wo furihodoite
Hitomi ni utsusu no wa, bijon

Dandan tooku naru dakedo togirenai
Dareka no nukumori fuan to tomo ni
Taisetsu ni shimattetai
Tokete kiete shimattemo

Ashita wa
Itsumo doori akarui hizashi
Kagayaite mieru kara
Watashi kara yoru ni tobikonde
Aishite miru aishite miru

Maboroshi ya, mayakashi ja nai yo
Me wo tojiteitemo mabushii
Watashi kara yoru ni tobikonde
Aishite miru hajimete miru watashi wo

Yubisaki de tsukuru fureemu
Sono, zutto, zutto saki e
Saru mono wa owanai natsu no shinkirou
Kaze ni nabiteru, bijon

Itsumo doori akarui hizashi

Aishite miru hajimete miru watashi wo



English Translation

Faint memories are scattered about
I won't say goodbye to these spring showers
Shaking free from your small body
Is the vision reflected in my eyes

Someone's warmth along with anxiety
Grow further and further away but remain constant
I want to keep them safe
Even if they melt away and disappear

The sun will shine brightly
Just like always
Diving away from me into the night
I'll try to love, try to love

It's not an illusion or a trick
Dazzling even with your eyes closed
Diving away from me into the night
I'll try to love you - You'll see me for the first time

I make a frame with my fingertips
Don't chase those who leave you
And go far, far ahead - A summer mirage
A vision fluttering in the wind

The sun shines brightly
Just like always
Diving away from me into the night
I'll try to love, try to love

It's not an illusion or a trick
Dazzling even with your eyes closed
Diving away from me into the night
I'll try to love you - You'll see me for the first time

•The episode starts with this. RINA asks what letter it starts with. The staff says "G." TOMO answers "Amethyst" (?? lol), which makes the others laugh. It's wrong, of course. RINA goes, "Did this turn into gemstone names??" HARU asks the staff if they could guess it if they told them what it starts off with, which the staff agrees to and says it starts with "Ga." The band laughs and goes, "It's gotta be Gaspard!" The staff reminds them that Gaspard ranked 9th. After a beat, MAMI answers "Gabriel," which is the correct answer. They all go, "Ahh!" and clap. RINA and TOMO go, "Impressive!" MAMI goes, "Gabriel's an angel, right?" The others agree, and HARU says she thinks she's heard of that before. RINA says that none of their European staff are named Gabriel. MAMI seems to look up the angel Gabriel and reads a few things about it, plus the names of a few other angels (Raphael, Uriel, etc.). HARU says that they all have an "-iel" name. The staff says that an odd thing is that "Gabriel" is also 8th on the girls' name list (but of course that's spelled as "Gabrielle" - there's no distinction in spelling between the two in Japanese, which is probably why they do not mention it). HARU says that a popular baby names list comes out in Japan as well, and says that them doing the same kind of list in Paris makes it feel like it's a bit Japanese-like (even though I'm pretty sure every country does this?? lol).

•RINA wonders what the top names in Japan are right now. A staffer goes, "What are they?" and the quiz sound effect plays, as if it's supposed to be a quiz question (and it actually does turn into one lol). They laugh at this. TOMO guesses "Aoi." HARU says that she often sees "Hina" as a girl's name. RINA says she also sees ones like "Hana" and even "Haruna." MAMI says that "Tsumugi" is also a popular one. Another one they say is "Mugi." MAMI says that she feels that a lot of names that consist of two Japanese characters are popular. Their director seems to say that they already said what one of the current most popular name is for boys. TOMO guesses "Haruto," which is incorrect. She then guesses "Aoi." He says something else, which makes them then guess "Ao," which is correct. RINA says that that's a nice name. Apparently, it's in third place. MAMI says that her friend's baby's name is Ao. TOMO mentions Tsumugi again, which apparently ranks ninth. MAMI asks the staff if they've already said the first place girl name, which the staff says they haven't. RINA guesses "Sakura" (*bzzt). MAMI guesses "Tsuyu" (*bzzt). TOMO guesses "Hina," even though it's been said before, and then guesses "Hime" (*bzzt). HARU says that she thinks that Hina does seem to be popular. Their director says that Hina is in sixth place, but the first place name does start with "Hi." TOMO then guesses "Hinata" (*bzzt). MAMI guesses "Hima" (*bzzt). TOMO guesses "Himari," which is the correct answer. She says that it gives off a warm feeling (maybe since it contains 'hi,' which means 'the sun'; or becauce it's close to 'himawari,' the word for 'sunflower'). The band says that this ranking was interesting.

•HARU reads the next message from a 37-year-old listener from Brazil who is writing in for the "Life before SCANDAL" segment, and who happened to ask earlier on SH what the title of the segment is in Japanese. Wink They say that they used to listen to L'Arc-en-Ciel, ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, Chatmonchy, etc., and that SCANDAL has been by their side during difficult times these past 10 years. They say that they're planning to go to SCAFES in 2026, which confuses the band (since SCAFES was their 10th anniversary event). TOMO goes, "We never said we have plans to hold another SCAFES," which makes them all laugh. MAMI goes, "But he has plans to go to it...", which makes them laugh again. HARU mentions that the listener is close in age to the band, so it makes sense that their former favorite bands were L'arc, AKFG, etc.

•The next quiz question is asked:

Carnival, the world-famous midsummer festival, took place last month in Rio. Rio = Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city in Brazil.

What does Rio de Janeiro mean in Portuguese?

•RINA guesses "Taiyou no Machi (City of the Sun)" (*bzzt). MAMI guesses "Mizu no Miyako (City of Water)" (*bzzt). RINA goes, "Wait a minute - we're all thinking of Parque Espana," which makes them all laugh. HARU goes, "It's because it's also Portuguese." A staffer seems to go, "Is that right?" HARU then thinks about it for a second and goes, "Oh, it's Spain." TOMO then goes, "Taiyou to uta motomete... (Seeking the sun and songs)", which are lyrics to Parque Espana's theme song. They all laugh and the buzzer is sounded. Their director seemingly says that a hint is that "Rio" is describing that belongs to "de Janiero." HARU wonders what "rio" means. RINA says that once they hear it, they'll all be like, "Oh yeah." HARU asks if they're close to it with what they've said so far. The staff says they're surprisingly going in the right direction. MAMI guesses "Jounetsu no Senshi (Warriors of Passion)" (*bzzt), which she and the others laugh at. RINA asks if the word "sun" is in it. The staff says no. They're surprised at this and feel like it would be in it. TOMO guesses "Honoo no Miyako (City of Fire)" (*bzzt). RINA guesses while laughing, "Koori no Dance (Ice Dance)" (*bzzt), which makes the others laugh as well. HARU guesses "Ame no Machi (City of Rain)" (*bzzt). RINA guesses while laughing again, "Tsuki no Sekai (Moon World)" (*bzzt). MAMI guesses "Yami no Iriguchi (Entrance to Darkness)", which makes everyone laugh hard. HARU says that that has a total different image from what one would picture Rio to be. TOMO guesses "Tamashii no Shinden (Temple of the Soul)." Everyone laughs at this too. HARU goes, "How mystical!"

•TOMO asks if it's the opposite of the sun. The staff says that it's not related to the sun at all, and then seems to say that it's related to water. TOMO says while thinking, " (Lake Town)" (*bzzt). They laugh at this. RINA goes, "It's gotta be related to Lake Biwa (in Japan)," which they laugh at. They joke that it must be "Shiga" (the prefecture in Japan that Lake Biwa is located in) (*bzzt). HARU guesses "Kawa ga nagareru machi (City with a river running through it)" (*bzzt). The staff seems to say that they're close, and that the correct word was said. MAMI guesses that "kawa" (river) was the right word. TOMO guesses "Kawa no Miyako (City of Lakes)" (*bzzt), and then "Kawa no Shinden (River of the Soul)" (*bzzt). They laugh at how TOMO used "shinden" (soul) in her answer again. TOMO wonders if "kawa" is one of the correct words. HARU says that it seems so. The staff seems to give a hint as to what "Janiero" refers to. MAMI guesses "Michitarita kawa (River that is full of water)" (*bzzt). The staff tries to explain the hint more, but it's not really audible. They seem to get the hint, and then guess "Ichigatsu no Kawa" (River of January), which is the correct answer. HARU says that it's probably warm in Brazil in January since they're in the Southern Hemisphere. The staff seemingly explains why it's called that but it's inaudible (the real reason: Portuguese explorers first started exploring the area in January). HARU says that they've been saying the name without knowing what it meant. MAMI says that they weren't able to guess it correctly [without hints]. HARU and RINA poke fun at MAMI's "Yami no Iriguchi" answer, and HARU says that that would have been pretty cool if it did mean that. MAMI then laughs at TOMO's "Tamashii no Shinden" answer, and then says that there's probably a temple of the soul at the entrance to darkness, which they all laugh at. HARU says that sounds like fun.

•HARU reads the next and last message from a listener from India who is also an SH member Happy They say there are two Japanese teams that they support: SCANDAL and the Japanese soccer team. They ask SCANDAL what their favorite sport is. RINA says that she was pretty sporty before she joined the band. She played soft tennis in middle school, and did track-and-field in elementary school. Her favorite one might be soft tennis. It's something that she wants to do even now. She says that they had done a shoot once before at a tennis court, which she enjoyed. TOMO says that she didn't play any sports; the only thing close she did was dance, which is what she chooses as her favorite. The staff seems to ask about any sports they watch. HARU says that she did watch some World Cup games. RINA says that she thinks they had all watched a World Cup game while they were overseas. The others all remember that too; they had watched it while eating after a concert.

•The next quiz question is asked:

It is said that India will overtake China to become the most populous country in the world.

How many people are there in India?

•They say that this is a simple yet difficult to answer question. TOMO guesses 700 million (*bzzt). MAMI guesses 1.36 billion. There's a pause after she answers, which makes her go, "Wait, wait?!" The staff then says that it's close. TOMO then guesses 1.34 billion (*bzzt), and then 1.47 billion (*bzzt). MAMI guesses 1.58 billion (*bzzt). RINA guesses 1.42 billion, which is correct. They all go, "Wow!" The staff then lists more info about the population growth and etc. that is not very audible. The band says that they'd like to visit India one day. They also encourage overseas listeners to keep sending in messages to the program.

*As always, you can send in a message to the program here. I've made a guide as how to input your info and message for those who need assistance (click to enlarge):

SCANDAL takes the "Ranking of Popular Baby Names" quiz for 2022 announced by Paris!

Episode #157 blog

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 XmFErVY

HARUNA: This week... we bring you the 8th edition of "I see - The Catch up"!
We bring you world news and country-specific quizzes! It's a very SCANDAL-like segment, with us having fans all over the world.

TOMOMI: I love this segment.

HARUNA: It seems that it's been about a year since the last one...

TOMOMI: It doesn't feel that long ago...

RINA: That's a lot of time.

HARUNA: The staff comes up with quizzes related to the country of the person who sent in a message, and the band members are asked those questions.
So far...
We have had quizzes based on messages from Estonia, Malaysia, Argentina, Italy, Russia, the US, Australia, the Philippines, Taiwan, India, and Indonesia.

RINA: Hearing it all again, that's impressive.

HARUNA: It is. "Catch up" is getting messages from all these countries, so it's quite a global program.

MAMI: We're very grateful.

HARUNA: Now, what countries are these quizzes from this time? Let's start with the messages. It's a quiz from a new country!

(*Note from the staff: This message in Japanese from an overseas listener has been left as is)

(*And a note from thoseguiltyeyes: There are a number of mistakes in this message, so I will try to translate those as such to English)


Hello, everyone!

You well? It's cold, so dress warmly, okay?

I'm French, so please forgive my bad Japanese.

Ah! I went the Paris concert, so it was really the best night of my life!
But I'm sorry I said "Don't cry, Teimo-chan" (haha)
It was a pink T-shirt

But you guys helped me find my purpose.
When will I make your fantastic music?

Enjoy this year!
I will continue to support SCANDAL from the bottom of my heart this year.

All: Thanks!

RINA: This was our first message from France.

HARUNA: I'm happy they went to our Paris concert.
Now then, from France, here's "I see - The Catch up"!

The city of Paris has announced the 2022 "Popular Baby Name Ranking'' based on last year's birth registrations.

The ranking of boys' names was Louis (4th), Raphael (3rd), and Adam (2nd).

What is in first place?

TOMOMI: No, no, wait a minute - That's too hard.

RINA: But it's a good question.

Staff: We'll give you a hint, of course.

HARUNA: Yes, a hint would be good.

RINA: Thanks!

*Hint: By the way, the girls' name ranking is as follows: No. 4 is Jeanne, No. 3 is Emma, No. 2 is Louise, and No. 1 is Alma.

TOMOMI: No, no, that's not a hint!

MAMI: Say the mens' ranking again, starting from fourth place.

HARUNA: Louis in 4th place, Raphael in 3rd, and Adam in 2nd.

TOMOMI: Um, Eve!


RINA: What could it be...

MAMI: Paris...

RINA: I wonder if it's one of the names of our European staff...

TOMOMI: Matthew!

HARUNA: George!


RINA: I don't know what a standard French name would be.

Staff: By the way, number 10 is "Leon." That's a hint.

TOMOMI: Leon...

MAMI: Eh, that's a hint!? Um, Mike!


RINA: It's kind of American, isn't it...

Staff: By the way, number 9 is "Gaspard"!

TOMOMI: Then, Noel!




HARUNA: Those are Gallaghers.

MAMI: That's Oasis.

TOMOMI: Those are European names, or at least British ones...

Staff: By the way, number 8 is Noah!

TOMOMI: Noah, huh... I said before that those aren't hints!

On the weekend, - 2023-03-11 (RINA) - Sat Mar 11, 2023 7:06 am

•The episode starts with HARU reading a message from a listener from Aichi Prefecture who attended the "recording field trip" for Catch up. They mention the Fine Line Association topics about food and are shocked that what they use for those foods they discussed aren't commonplace when they thought they were (ex. they use ponzu and chili oil for gyoza, and had at that point thought that that's what everyone uses as well). They also say they use mentsuyu (noodle soup base) on tofu and ohitashi (spinach salad). RINA says that that conversation really fired everyone up who was there. HARU says that ponzu is delicious, which the others agree with. RINA says that you don't really get the chance to have these types of convos, so you don't realize that what others do might differ from what you do. HARU says that putting mentsuyu on ohitashi sounds good.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who also attended the event. They say their answers for Smental were close to what HARU answered, and so symphathized with her (they're saying this due to how HARU answered differently than the other 3 members for most of the questions). HARU says thanks to this, which the others laugh at. HARU also says that after the episode aired they got a lot of messages from people saying that they also thought the same things as HARU. She then says, "Don't let it get you down!" The others laugh and RINA says that the listeners are being really considerate. MAMI asks their program director if it's okay to discuss and try to get each other's answers to match before answering, which he says yes to.

This message/part then happens.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who recently sent in their initial message and then sent in a follow up shortly after. The listener has lived with her boyfriend for a little over two years, and they've been dating for almost three years. The bf might be transferred in April and will have to move to Tokyo. The listener wasn't surprised since he had been trying for a transfer request for a while. She is 28 while the bf is 25. She'd ideally like to get married and he says he's willing to get married as well, but he'd ideally want to get married when he's 30 and have fun without being tied down a bit more. She says she doesn't want to tie him down too much and is wondering if it's okay for her to go to with him to Tokyo without them promising to get married. She also doesn't want to quit her job since she enjoys it, so she's having a hard time taking the plunge. The bf says that he doesn't mind if she goes with him or not. She asks SCANDAL for their opinion.

•Right after the first message is read, MAMI then reads the update. The listener says that a few things have happened. Right after she sent in the message, the bf did in fact ask her to move to Tokyo with him, and even asked her to marry him. She was thinking about what she should do about her job when she found out that she was pregnant. She's been so happy since the beginning of the year that her family and friends have told her she's giving out too much information, but everyone has been encouraging her to leave my job for now and just try to work hard. She apologizes that she ended up quitting her job, but she's taking it as a positive opportunity to try something new. They got married on the third anniversary and had only two weeks to prepare for the ceremony. She says that even though she's moving to Kanto and is pregnant, she's still planning to go see SCANDAL on their upcoming tour and will be going crazy in her heart since she won't really be able to physically do so. The band says that that was a fast development. RINA says that the bf took more action as if being guided, and with the baby on the way, it's like she was being told that this is how things were to naturally flow. HARU says that life sure is interesting.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who asks the band whether she should be happy with the person she loves, or the person who loves her. She's had a crush on someone for a year and talk on LINE every day, but she's not sure if he likes her in the same way or just as a friend. She's afraid of ruining their relationship and so hasn't told him how she feels yet. While in the middle of all this, she met another guy, and it happened to be at SCANDAL's 16th anniversary event last year. They were in the same group and started talking to each other on LINE. Since she already had someone she liked, she wanted to keep her replies casual. However, he would somehow keep the convo going so that there was no awkward break. He lives in Kanto while she lives in Kansai, so if they ever got together, it would mean a long-distance relationship. They met again at BEST Xmas where they had both gone solo, and so enjoyed the concert together. He hasn't clearly said that he likes her yet, but he's planning to go to Kansai in March and asked if they could hang out then, which she said yes to. She says she honestly thinks she would have been attracted to him if she didn't already have someone she liked. She still likes the first guy more and can't give up on him, but she also doesn't want to stay in this half-hearted state and feels bad for the second guy, so she's been wondering if she should give up on her crush or not. She re-asks her question to the band of whether she should be happy with the person she loves, or the person who loves her.

•HARU goes, "Ono, you're responsible for this!" since he was the one who encouraged groups at the anniversary event to exchange LINE contacts with each other. The others laugh and agree. HARU also says that the second guy is obviously in SCANDAL's fan club (since the anniversary event was only for fan club members) so he probably does listen to "Catch up" and is probably like, "This might be me they're talking about!" MAMI jokes and says that they of course want to support the second guy (they refer to him as "MANIA"/"MANIA-kun" lol) since he's a SCANDAL fan. TOMO says that it's hard to lie about how you feel about someone you like, and that she thinks you should be honest and go for the person you're attracted to. The listener clearly likes the first guy more. MAMI says to try going hard on that first guy, if only to settle things, and tell him how they feel. If nothing comes of it, there's MANIA-kun who might like them, and they'll be able to look at him in a romantic way as well from now on. The others agree that it's probably better to first tell the first guy how they feel. TOMO says that there's a possibility that the more the listener and MANIA-kun will become more and more attracted to each other the more they spend time with each other, and there may come a time when she likes him more than he likes her. She says again how she as a members of SCANDAL is rooting for MANIA-kun, but she as a person thinks she should be with the one she likes. A staffer laughs in the background about how they're calling the second guy "MANIA," which makes the band laugh as well. HARU says that both MANIA-kun and the listener shouldn't give up for the time being. TOMO goes, "We're talking about you!", as if talking directly to MANIA-kun. They laugh and RINA says that whoever he is, he's probably realized that they're talking about him. RINA says that even if it doesn't produce results, if he has the power to wait and understand her, maybe it will bear fruit years later - "I have no idea if that'll be true, though," she adds. TOMO says that now he knows that the girl he likes has someone that she likes, which they all laugh at. HARU says that it's possible he's finding it out for the first time. TOMO says that they're rooting for the listener, no matter whom she chooses. HARU says that they're rooting for both the listener and MANIA-kun. TOMO says to eat some sweets together when they meet up in March, and that the band will send them some.

Three years have passed since this message about love advice...  SCANDAL is so excited to hear an update from the listener!!!

Episode #156 blog

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 2gUnEut

HARUNA: This time we're just going to read messages. There are a lot of messages, but we talk too much, and they keep piling up...

RINA: Yeah...

HARUNA: Not only are they piling up, but the contents of the messages are getting more and more deep...

RINA: We're happy and grateful for that.

HARUNA: We read this message about three years ago and have received an update about it. Let's read the message from three years ago.

RINA: It's like a review.

Harupon (3~ years ago)

This is my fifth year as a working adult, but love feels too far away from me and I no longer know what I like. However, in terms of age, I'm vaguely thinking that I would like to marry the next person I date. My favorite type has always been someone older than me and is reliable, and has that gap where they always seem to act silly but is a diligent worker.

Perhaps because I have a younger brother, I have never considered dating someone younger than me. However, I currently have feelings I've never felt before, for a junior colleague. He's four years younger than me and is unreliable and troublesome. However, he's honest, cute, and fun. We talk daily on LINE or on the phone--I never get tired of talking to him. However, once in a while there are moments when I'm conscious of him being younger and that dating him wouldn't be right. He's like a younger brother to me. However, if he ever got a girlfriend, I think I'd feel extremely jealous.

What kind of emotions are these? Our current relationship is enjoyable, and I don't want to be oddly conscious of it. SCANDAL, could you please give me some advice?

HARUNA: I remember that.

TOMOMI: Yeah, I remember too.

MAMI: This was three years ago.

RINA: I'm curious... They sent in a later development. I'll read it.


It's been a while since I've sent in a message.
Actually, he proposed to me the other day, and we are getting married.

All: Ahh! Congratulations!

He's younger than me, but before we started dating, my message about asking for love advice regarding a man younger than me was read on "Catch up." (I think it was back in the early days of the program, but I'm too embarrassed to listen to it again now.)

Back then, I never thought I would end up getting married this way, so I feel like I don't know what's in store for me. We have a lot of decisions to make for the wedding and such, but I am happy every day.

The other day we both went to look at wedding rings, and the woman who helped us at the store was a SCANDAL fan. She noticed the sticker in my phone case and approached me. It was the first time I was approached in that way, and it made me very happy.

It was a very happy time for me, as I was able to choose a ring and talk about my favorite band, SCANDAL, and my heart felt so warm.

All: Congratulations!

TOMOMI: That's the best!

RINA: That's so lovely!

HARUNA: Congrats, but I want to hear about what happened in the last three years...

RINA: We need details.

TOMOMI: I want to hear how it started!

MAMI: From those feelings they sent to us three years ago, how did it go from, "Ah, I like him..." to seeing him as a love interest...

RINA: I wonder how they changed their mind about falling in love with someone younger.

MAMI: I wonder when it happened.

RINA: And he proposed! Thank you for sending in this message...but can you tell us a little more about it?

MAMI: Yeah.

The 86th upload from RINA to her YouTube channel:

English subs:

Long time no see!

Since this video has a bit of a time lag [between when I shot it and now],
I wondered if I should shelve it,
But I was encouraged by our manager who told me,
"You should definitely release it!", so I have decided to do so( ◜ᴗ◝ )ニコ

We have released new items from FEEDBACK,
The apparel brand that the band has worked on at our leisure, so please check them out♡

How did you guys spend Valentine's Day?
Let's talk about it in the comments〜

If you enjoy my translations, please consider leaving a tip! Happy

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 155

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 Ht8YgTr

•The episode starts with this.

•The next topic is "going by yourself to a theme park." All of the band members say they've never done that before, but MAMI says that she had planned to do so in the past. HARU says that she had also thought about going alone. They all agree that if you think about going alone, then it's totally something doable. RINA says that she probably couldn't do that, though, since she doesn't know if she'd be able to have fun by herself. TOMO says that sometimes you are able to get on rides faster if you're solo (HARU says that's known as "single rider"), so knowing that, there could be times when you'd want to go alone. RINA says that those who go solo are cool. HARU asks the audience if there's anyone who has gone to a theme park solo. Quite a few people raise their hands, which surprises the band. MAMI asks if there's anyone who hasn't done so but would. Less people raise their hands for this.

•Their director wonders if anyone's gone solo many times. HARU wonders if there's anyone who actually prefers going alone, and some people apparently do raise their hands. They ask if it's okay to ask why they prefer going solo, and pick a listener to ask. HARU asks if they go to the "east" theme park or the "west" theme park (east = Tokyo Disneyland/Disney Sea, west = Universal Studios Japan; HARU was being vague about it so as to not mention any names likely due to copyright reasons). They say they go to the "east" one. TOMO asks if they go to the biggest one of the "east" parks (Tokyo Disneyland, since it's bigger than Disney Sea). They say that they have an annual pass so they go to both parks. The band is surprised and HARU says that they must really like theme parks. They say that it's the same as going to a cafe for them. RINA asks if they've specifically gone to eat there. They say they have. TOMO asks what the perks are of going alone. They say that they don't have to worry about someone else, they can eat whatever and whenever they want, and they can watch the shows/parades from wherever they want. HARU says that she totally gets all that. Another thing they say is that if they get tired, they can leave whenever they want. HARU says that she's getting to see the appeal of doing stuff alone when they hear stories like this.

•The next topic is "traveling solo," which the director prefaces by saying it's something that they've previously discussed on the program. There are some band members who have traveled solo before, with HARU being one of them, but she clarifies that although she physically traveled alone, she did meet up with friends after arriving. RINA says that that was when HARU had traveled to New York. HARU says yes, and that she met up and ate with friends who lived in NY. RINA says that she'd like to try traveling solo in Japan and doing all the activities solo. They then ask the audience if there's anyone who has ever traveled solo, and there apparently are a lot. HARU says that there are probably people who have traveled solo to go to a concert. RINA asks if there are people who have done that, and there are a lot. She then asks if there are people who have traveled solo but not for a concert, and people do indicate that they have. They ask where they've traveled. The first person says that they traveled solo back home today--they seemingly live in/around the Tokyo area and had just gotten back from camping in Miyazaki (Kyushu Area). They arrived at Haneda Airport and went straight to this recording. The band says that they're glad they decided to hold this in the evening. The next person says they traveled to London solo last year. HARU asks the reason why. They say they had always wanted to visit London, and it was kind of a pain to try and find/invite someone else to travel with them. The next person traveled to Nagoya to get their hair done by the boyfriend of an influencer they like. They also visited a cafe that the influencer likes. The band says that sounds like fun.

•RINA says that everyone has their own hobbies/likes, and since they're traveling for that purpose, it feels as if the destination is decided on on its own (rather than the person's own accord). She also says that she's different in that regard. HARU asks what she means. MAMI asks if it means that she wants to travel without having any particular thing/event/etc. in mind, which RINA says yes to. That's why she's always unsure of where to travel to. HARU asks if it's hard to plan unless she has a long vacation. RINA says that if it's somewhere within Japan, then it's not too hard to go somewhere for one or two days. MAMI says that one thing you could do is drive, get on the highway, have your driving app take you somewhere, and stop at whatever place you're close to when you're about to run out of gas. RINA says that that sounds really nice and doable for her. HARU reminds the audience that RINA is someone who will drive for 4-5 hours without ever getting out of the Tokyo area. RINA laughs and says that she was planning on leaving the area, but she ended up driving around it for 4 hours. The other three still can't seem to believe she did that.

•Next, HARU reads a topic that was selected by the staff: Soy sauce and ponzu. TOMO asks if they're supposed to find the fine line between the two, and says that they're two separate things. The director clarifies that they're supposed to find the fine line between what you use them on/for. He asks what the band uses on tofu. All of them say soy sauce. He then asks them to ask audience. Most people choose soy sauce as well, but there are a few that choose ponzu. RINA says that it definitely ought to taste good. MAMI + HARU say that they know it probably tastes good, but they like using soy sauce with it more. The next food is ohitashi (Japanese spinach salad). All 4 of them immediately pick soy sauce. The audience mostly chooses soy sauce with a few going with ponzu. TOMO goes, "They really like ponzu!" (likely because it's the same people choosing it each time). The director says that apparently younger people these days prefer ponzu. He then asks about sashimi. The band says soy sauce. Next, he asks about nabe (hot pot). TOMO, MAMI, and RINA go with ponzu while HARU goes with soy sauce. Only one person in the audience also choose soy sauce, while pretty much everyone else goes with ponzu. TOMO says that it also depends on what kind of nabe it is. The director says that he actually expected there to be more of a debate with this, but it didn't happen. The band laughs at this. The director says that his kids use ponzu for everything.

•RINA then asks if she can ask what people use for gyoza. TOMO says that she just uses vinegar. MAMI says that she uses vinegar and black pepper. RINA asks if there's anyone in the audience that uses ponzu for gyoza, and apparently about 1/3 of them do. MAMI says that it also tastes good with mayo. The others say that they don't put mayo on it, though it does sound good. Next, they ask the audience who eats gyoza with vinegar and soy sauce. About 1/3 does. Then they ask about ponzu, which about 1/3 does as well. They wonder what the remaining people do. They ask if about vinegar and black pepper, but don't really mention how many people raise their hands. The director asks who hasn't raised their hands for anything yet. They ask one person what they do, and they say that they don't use anything. HARU asks if there are people who do their own kind of original thing, and someone answers yuzu and black pepper. The band excitedly says that that sounds good. MAMI says that it sounds like it would go well with nabe. Another person says they use vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil. Another person says spicy miso, which surprises the band but they do say it sounds good. HARU asks if it's something that their family does, or if it's something that they themselves came up with. They say that there's a really good spicy miso sold in their hometown of Saitama. TOMO asks if they could send some to them, which makes everyone laugh.

•They then move on to the next and final segment, a small viewing party for their MIRROR documentary film where they'll also talk a little bit about behind-the-scenes stuff. They ask if anyone watched the film when it was up on U-NEXT and thanks the ones who raise their hands. They then show a teaser to the audience. Following that, they ask if there's anyone would has already seen the film and would like to tell the band their thoughts. RINA says that it might be easier if the band shared their thoughts on it first.

RINA: "I think we were able to take another step forward by doing this tour. We've been touring and making music while wondering how much we should be telling our fans. But when we were on tour last year, I really thought stuff like we might not be able to do this anymore, we might not be able to write any more songs, and that this might be our last tour. But we honestly put it all out there and made it into a singular work while trying to somehow tie it all together and playing concerts. We really wanted to sear the images of our audiences into our minds. We put our hearts and souls into these concerts, thinking that this might be the last time we see each other, so it really turned into a tour that had a different color than previous ones, and became an album that was special to us. There were steps that we couldn't have taken if we hadn't been able to do this tour. That period was like glue that wasn't adhering together, which is why there are things that we were able to thoroughly understand by having everyone see it in its entirety. It was really tough, but that's why it feels like we should go further. That's why we want our fans to see this film and to put it out into the world. We made this film and album with the determination to show all the good and bad things, even in our own lives, and as a band, and to leave it as a work that'll remain even after we die, which is big deal for us as a band. That's why I think the most important thing was to have people watch this."

HARU: "A lot of things that were planned went up in smoke due to the pandemic, and we were at a loss because of that. It wasn't easy to make progress, but that's why we released our album last year. We were able to tour in Japan and able to go overseas, and were able to properly connect it with this year. To summarize it, it was such an important tour for us. A lot happened on that tour, like having to cancel the US tour in the middle of it, but we were happy we got to see our overseas fans again. Then there was the pain of canceling the rest of that leg of the tour and getting sick--we experienced both sides of the coin. But it was all part of the experience. We could have gone on without knowing about it all, but there are many things that we were able to properly connect to this year because we know."

RINA: "When the rest of that leg of the tour was canceled, it was so shocking that we didn't know what to do. But after making the film, we realize now that it wasn't an issue. We didn't lose anything because of it. It was more about our mentality and feelings, and how to face music--there was a bigger theme floating there. That was more important that anything else, which makes it tough to face it and it requires strength, but we could no longer ignore it. It was hard, but I'm glad the four of us were able to face it. I think that was a really big thing."

HARU: "Yeah, we get really passionate when we start talking about these kinds of things. We hold a lot of discussions."

RINA: "But I'm really interested in how people felt about it."

HARU: "Yeah, so let's ask the audience if they have any comments or questions."

•They say that they have time to hear from one person, and invite anyone who wants to share their thoughts in a short, light manner. A fan comes up and says that she attended the Toronto, New York, and Boston shows and so was able to really feel that HARU's MCs were properly conveyed to everyone. The film then properly conveys that. She really wants people all over the world to see it. She also says that she was really worried when the tour was canceled halfway through. She wondered how the band was spending their time, and how they were making the transition from one place to another, which is able to be seen in the film. She closes by saying that when they say TOMO apologizing, seeing how the other band members immediately said positive words to her made the fan think of how they want to keep being a fan. The fan is emotional and tears up while speaking, which makes the band also sound emotional as they thank her.

RINA: "We've been playing concerts through our teens, twenties, and thirties, and although it still won't be smooth sailing from here on out, we've been a band while feeling like we don't know what could happen at any moment. But it'd be really great if that that tingling feeling could become an electrifying piece of music that touches everyone. We're definitely staking our lives to compose songs and play concerts, so we really hope that it reaches each and every fan and that its power spreads out as far as possible. There's something about having fans  that makes us feel stronger, and that's what makes it worthwhile. I think that this is what we ought to be doing, and it's why we're able to talk about how we would like to do our activities in this way this year."

HARU: "I was also very happy to hear that you could feel that my MCs were understood by the audiences. I talked a bit about it in the film, but of course there's a language barrier in different countries. Even though my English good at all, I try to convey my feelings to the audience, so I'm very glad to know that my words were conveyed to the audience regardless of whether it was someone's first time seeing us, or if they've been supporting us for a long time. Thank you very much!"

•It's then time to close out the episode. HARU says that it was very valuable to them to be able to talk about their activities from last year to this year in front of everyone and convey everything in person. She knows that their messages are conveyed via the radio as well, of course, but being in the same space and breathing the same air together helps to have everything reach listeners quicker. She then says that all four band members will share their thoughts on today's event.

MAMI: "Thanks for coming out today! It was really fun to see and hear your reactions in real time like this.
It's always just the four of us when we record, so it was a lot of fun to have a lively atmosphere in this space. I think there are signs that things are going to get better [pandemic-wise], so I'd be happy if eventually we could all take off our masks and see the smiles on everyone's faces with our own eyes. I hope we can create a space where people can be natural and not just applaud. Please apply again then! Thank you very much!"

RINA: "Thank you so much for coming from all over the country! It was a lot of fun, and I'm glad we could meet today. I'm really glad that we had this chance to talk in front of everyone. There's a strong variety of people here, and when it comes to the band, it's just too important to us that we're full of emotions. We always deliver this podcast every week, and I think Catch up is the place where we can continue to share our voices and our feelings at the moment. It'd make me very happy if you could listen to our voices whenever you have time and whenever you feel like it. I'm really glad we got to see each other today. Thank you very much!"

TOMO: "Thank you very much! It's been a long time since we've had a chance to meet like this outside of a live concert, hasn't it? Since the pandemic started, there have been very few face-to-face events like this, so I'm very happy to see everyone. Does everyone have a Twitter account? If you could tweet your thoughts on today's event with a hashtag, we'd love to hear from you."

MAMI: "You can also post an Instagram Story."

HARU: "What should the hashtag be?"

TOMO: "Hashtag? Uh..."

RINA: "Isn't it 'Catch up' (キャッチアップ)?"

HARU: "That's it?"

Ono: "Add the '収録見学会' to it."

TOMO: "'Catch up'..."

HARU: "'Shuuroku Kengakukai'?" (#Catchup収録見学会)

TOMO: "...yes, let's go with that."

RINA: "Simple is best."

TOMO: "Tweet using that hashtag. We always record this program with just the four of us and Ono, the bare minimum amount of people, at our office. It's always like, 'Is anyone listening to this program??' I sometimes get DMs about it, but they're so few and far between!"

HARU: "They have increased a lot, though."

TOMO: "A little bit. We know there are at least 50 listeners (the amount of people in the audience), so we better get 50 tweets using that hashtag! I'll be checking in two hours."

MAMI, RINA: "That's so fast!"

TOMO: "Please post yours by midnight. Thanks so much!"

We held an acoustic live performance and talk event
At Abeno Harukas in Osaka yesterday☺
Thank you to everyone who came by!

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 ZZFLuiu

This event was held in conjunction with International Women's Day,
Which is coming up on the 8th,
And was also an event
To think about gender equality
And about how women live their lives.
We talked plenty along with doing a live performance.

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 93b1OCC

Since they said they'd leave the content up to us,
We thought long and hard
About what kind of appearance we should do.
We decided to look back on the band's history
And talk about what we felt each time, connecting it to the present.

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 EI2zQ4S

Compared to now,
There were fewer all-girl bands when we formed 17 years ago,
But we were so eager that we didn't even notice it.
During overseas interviews,
It surprised us when we were asked,
"Why are you playing in a band when you're girls?"
But at the same time
We felt that our style was in the minority, rare,
And a wonderful thing,
And when we started appearing at festivals,
There were many days
When it felt like we were the only all-girl band around.
That's exactly why we've thought long and hard
About what kind of concerts to put on.
And, we now want to be a band
That values being women.

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 P4GpK6X

I think that the very positive message of
"It doesn't matter what gender you are"
Is being said more and more often,
But we take pride
In being an all-girl band.
We enjoy being women,
And it's a non-negotiable identity for us.
There are many different ways to think about gender equality,
And we want to choose the freedom to value what we consider to be our kind of femininity.

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 VI41gor

We left the record label we had been with for 10 years
And transferred to Victor Entertainment
Where we established our private imprint label "her."
Our own special atelier
Where we can create works
By cherishing being women
And the process and feelings that have brought us to this point.
I hope that we produce from here
Will resonate with someone or help them out.

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 ECvuK5g

When this event was arranged,
The organizer said
They wanted to hear about
"Women's empowerment from SCANDAL's point of view,"
Which made us think about it again,
And we hope that all of these activities
Will help those who accept them, regardless of gender.
I want to do things honestly
So that we can continue to be happy
That we've continued to be a band in our teens, twenties, and thirties☺

Ah, and we weren't supposed
To have a photographer on hand yesterday,
But JON, who happened to be in Osaka for a different engagement,
Saw our Instagram Stories and came to see the event on his own.
He came to the dressing room and said, "I thought I should see you when I miss you guys,"
And even took photos of our appearance.
We were so grateful and happy☺
It wasn't properly shot at all
Since we didn't plan on having it shot,
But all of the photos are really nice◎

It was such a fun, worthwhile day!
Thank you very much☺
Can't wait to see you guys next on our tour!

Episode #155 blog

(~in front of all the listeners who have gathered~)

HARUNA: So... today is February 12th, the second week of SCANDAL Catch up's first "recording field trip."

Staff: Please read the lines in the script.

HARUNA: Hmm? Oh, right here. "The tension and tension-filled atmosphere of each recording session is observed as is."

RINA: That's not true.

TOMOMI: Yeah, we're always on edge...

HARUNA: That's never happened.

RINA: You wrote down a lie.

Staff: Yes, we lied. Well, we have been doing it like this for three years.

HARUNA: That's trueー

TOMOMI: Three years - it's gone by so fast.

RINA: Yeah, three years.

MAMI: Ehー, three years??

HARUNA: So fastー. After 3 years, we've finally done a "recording field trip."

RINA: That makes us happy.

TOMOMI: This program started right around when the pandemic did.

HARUNA: We've talked with the listeners on the phone, but this is the first time seeing everyone in person and recording together. How was week one's episode?

RINA: It felt really special. More than anything, everyone's voices and applause made me feel glad that we were able to do this.

HARUNA: Yeah, I'd love to do this again next.

RINA: We talk a lot about what's "next." Well, we are aiming to record at Tokyo Dome.

HARUNA: Now then, this time we're doing "Kyoukai-sen Kyokai" (Fine Line Association)!

All: (*Very excited)

HARUNA: This will be the first time "Kyoukai-sen Kyokai", which is loved by all listeners, will have listener participation. Let's introduce today's agenda and message.


These are fine lines related to human behavior.
Please discuss amongst yourselves and find an answer!

Now, let me present the topic.

"The fine line between what you can do alone vs. what you can't~"

Staff: We will present the topics, so please discuss them with everyone. First, "going to eat ramen by yourself"!

HARUNA: First, who among the four of us can go out to eat ramen by themselves?

All: Me!

RINA: How about the listeners?

(*Almost everyone can do so!)

Staff: Next, "going to eat yakiniku by yourself"!

MAMI: Is that a question of whether it's doable or not??

TOMOMI: It's doable by yourself...

MAMI: I've never done that...

TOMOMI: Yeah, I never have.

Staff: If you haven't gone, then it's "not doable."

MAMI: I've never experienced it.

HARUNA: Me neither.

TOMOMI: I haven't.

RINA: I haven't...

(*None of the band members have ever done "solo yakiniku")

TOMOMI: But, it is doable.

HARUNA: I think I could do it if I wanted to.

MAMI: I could.

HARUNA: Among the audience, has anyone ever done "solo yakiniku"??

(*Several people raise their hands)

HARUNA: Ah, but not much.

MAMI: Is there anyone who's like, "I haven't done it before, but it's totally something I could do!"??

(*Many people raise their hands)

MAMI: Everyone can do solo yakiniku.

Staff: But if you can do it, why haven't you done it?

MAMI: Because there's never a time when I want to eat yakiniku by myself.

TOMOMI: You want to eat it with a group.

HARUNA: I've thought about trying it.

MAMI: There are "solo yakiniku" restaurants these days. You could totally go there if you wanted to.

TOMOMI: You want to order as many types of yakiniku as possible, right?

RINA: Right?

TOMOMI: There's a limit to what one person can eat.

HARUNA: Yeah. Yakiniku is more enjoyable when eaten with friends.

RINA: But even if you go with friends, you can't share "bibimbap."

HARUNA: That's not something you do.

RINA: I'd want to eat bibimbap alone.

Staff: Here's a new topic. The fine line between whether or not you can share bibimbap.

RINA: Yeah. Is everyone able to share theirs??

(* About half raise their hands)

TOMOMI: It's 50-50.

MAMI: RINA just loves bibimbap.

RINA: I can eat as much as I want. On our recent world tour, we went to a Korean restaurant at the end and everyone was sharing their food, but I was the only one eating alone.

HARUNA: That's so true. That's why I won't say to give me some anymore.

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 154

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 F8XeAag
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 U2T1HGr

•The episode starts with this.

•They then wonder what other common jobs that listeners seem to hold. MAMI says a hair stylist, and a few people seem to raise their hands. The band then asks if there are any people working in apparel. No one raises their hands, which RINA is surprised at. A staffer then says to ask if there are any students. There do seem to be a few. HARU says that it seems like mostly everyone has raised their hands, but asks if there's anyone who didn't raise their hands. A few seem to. The band is surprised and wonders what they do. Someone says they're a "自宅警備員" (jitaku-keibiin; literally means "security officer of one's own home," but actually translates to being a "shut-in"). HARU says that's a great way to phrase it. Someone else says they're searching for a job, and the band says they hope they find something. Someone else says they're a nurse. The band then asks if there are any others in the medical field and apparently many of them raise their hands.

•The first segment they do is a Valentine's version of "Smental" (where all 4 band members try to write the same answer in the first go). HARU says that they've never successfully done so. TOMO goes, "It's your fault!" (referring to HARU's 'mochi' answer during episode 137). HARU goes, "Ehh??" The band gets into place to play and wonders if this being a "Valentine's version" means that the questions are related to Valentine's Day. The first question is: "What letter of the alphabet seems like it would taste sweet?" TOMO and RINA says that this is a really good question. HARU reads the message that the question comes from. The listener is a nursery school teacher (MAMI makes a noise of recognition but HARU continues to read the message) who has been playing Smental with their kids for a while now. They asked the kids to name a hiragana character that seemed like it would be delicious to eat. They ask the band if there are any characters that look tasty at a glance. After the message is read, RINA reminds them that it came from a nursery school teacher. HARU goes, "Yeah!" and then a second later, "Oh!", and all of them then go, "Hey! Teacher!" MAMI says that they can never tell if HARU realizes things like that because she'll just keep reading the rest of the message without pausing. TOMO says that they should have all said the line right after the listener's job was revealed. HARU apologizes, which the others laugh at.

•Going back to the question asked about which letter of the alphabet that seems like it would taste sweet, TOMO says that one with no sharp corners probably would be best. RINA agrees. HARU says that it's not good to have a discussion like this at the start of the episode. The others are confused and ask what she means. She says that it's probably because their answers won't match up. She says that she's thinking about what her answer could be, though. RINA goes, "If there's one you're thinking of, then just write it down!" They reiterate again that they're not choosing one that has sharp corners. TOMO and RINA try to suggest to HARU that the letter(s) they're thinking of look like they're shapes of commercially available products, and that one of them has an 'accent' to them. HARU is really confused at what this means. They say that there are basically two possible selections, and HARU, who has no idea what they could be, goes, "What do you mean, two possible selections??" while the others and the audience laugh. HARU still doesn't understand what the 'accent' thing means. RINA says to imagine it even harder. HARU says that she is. She then says that she has four letters in mind. TOMO and RINA are surprised at this. MAMI talks about the Meiji chocolates in front of them and what they're shaped like, trying to give HARU a hint. HARU still doesn't understand what they mean at first, but then says that she understands...but then says that although she's saying she understands, she probably doesn't actually understand. She says that they should all just write down their first answer. RINA asks if they're going with the one with the 'accent' or not. HARU says without it. The others say okay, but HARU then suddenly goes, "Wait, I have no idea! This segment really is scary."

•TOMO then wonders what the audience thinks and if they understand what letters they could be talking about. Some seem to indicate that they do know what they mean. HARU can still be heard in the background saying that she doesn't get it. RINA again says that they'll go with the letter with no 'accent.' TOMO says to think simply about it and go with a letter that looks like one you could easily bring to your mouth and eat. Then she asks if HARU knows the alphabet, which makes the audience laugh. She says, "Okay, you know it? Just checking." They write down the answers and then reveal them. They actually all answer the same--the letter "O"--and get Smental for the first time. They all get really excited and say that they're really happy they got it. Their program director asks them what four choices HARU was thinking of. She says O, I, C, and U. MAMI asks her if she got the 'accent' thing. HARU says she didn't. The others go, "It was Q!" and point out that it has that line going through it. HARU is surprised and says that she had no idea that was what they were talking about. RINA says it was miraculous that they all answered the same. Then, HARU suddenly says that she finally understood the Q thing, which makes everyone laugh.

•They move on to the second question: "What is something you always have in your refrigerator, aside from chocolate?" The director says that the chocolate thing was a typo (lol), since it's not like everyone always has some chocolate in their fridge. The band says that there are all kinds of stuff that could apply. TOMO and RINA think that something is used daily could work. A horn sound effect is played to signal the end of thinking time. RINA goes, "Okay, let's do it." HARU and MAMI go, "Eh??" since they didn't really have time to consider things. MAMI asks if it's okay to narrow things down, which is agreed on. MAMI says that perhaps they should go with something that you can directly eat after taking it out of the fridge, like a condiment. HARU says that maybe it should be a drink. MAMI then says that maybe it should be something that you'd need to cook. RINA says that instead of a condiment, maybe they should go with an ingredient. TOMO says that maybe they should go with an ingredient that's smooth. RINA and MAMI seem to get it, but HARU doesn't seem to and says that there are lots of things that could fit that. RINA says to go with one that you can prepare in many different ways.

•They then write down their answers. RINA says that she feels that they'll all have the same answer. TOMO says that there are a lot of potential things she can think of, but she went with the one that seemed most likely. HARU says that she doesn't really get it, but she did write down something she always has at home. They reveal their answers. There's a pause before the audience starts to laugh. (They never mentioned what they had written, but it seems HARU wrote down "tofu" while the other three wrote "eggs") TOMO goes, "Hey!" to HARU. HARU goes, "This isn't true!" MAMI goes, "What do you mean by that??" HARU says to do these answers with her mind. RINA goes, "We only have you in mind when we do these!" TOMO says that it's okay if she doesn't like boiled eggs or such, and that there are many cooking methods to add flavor to them. HARU says that that's not it. RINA says that not giving her answer as "eggs" aside, she questions if HARU actually prepares tofu in many ways (since they had mentioned that they should answer with something that can be prepared in many different ways). TOMO says that HARU had no intention of matching answers with them.

•They bring up how they planned to go with something that's smooth, and HARU says that tofu is smooth. MAMI says that they were trying to continue the 'smooth' pattern from the previous question. TOMO says that because "O" is a smooth shape, they had said to answer this question with something 'smooth' that is also shaped the same. There's some laughter heard before HARU goes, "Yeah, that's true," but then asks to let her say one thing: She says that she doesn't buy eggs. MAMI asks if that means she doesn't make stuff like scrambled eggs or tamagoyaki. HARU says that she doesn't, and doesn't buy eggs because she's not that good at cooking them. That's why that idea never came to her. TOMO goes, "But generally speaking, eggs would be the correct answer for this question." RINA asks HARU if those hints they gave didn't connect with her. HARU says not at all. TOMO says that's HARU's a rare type of person for this, which makes the audience laugh. HARU says that now that it's been mentioned, she could totally understand eggs being the perfect answer for this question; it's just that eggs really aren't something that could have occurred as an answer for her. Their director then says that since they didn't get Smental, they need to do it one more time and ask that they all answer "tofu." RINA laughs at how HARU's answers have gone from mochi to tofu. MAMI says that they can't get their answers relating to white-colored things to match up. They write down and reveal their second answers. There's a pause before they all go, "Okay." and say unenthusiastically that they all matched up. TOMO says that they always sound down when they do this segment. They all laugh and joke that they should stop doing this segment.

•The next segment is to make a new program jingle. They say that since they have an audience today, they'll have them participate in making the jingle. The director says that they'll be giving HARU a bag full of some more unusual instruments that another staffer has found and pass them to the other members. MAMI says that HARU will take a look at the bag and then give them out. HARU looks through them and isn't really sure what they could be. RINA asks if they're all ones that she hasn't seen before. HARU says that there's at least one that she's never seen before, and that there are also ones that they've used before. There's a big one that they apparently all take a look at and are surprised. They wonder what it is. HARU says that she has no idea how it can be played. TOMO says that the pattern on it is cute. The staff briefly tells them what to do. They try it out and say it sounds like a rhythm instrument, which they decide will go to RINA. HARU picks out an ocarina next, which they had used in previous jingles. She then pulls out a bird whistle, another instrument that they used previously, and says she'll give it to TOMO, who had previously played it. The next one she pulls out she says is another mysterious instrument. The others are surprised when she shows it to them. RINA says it looks cute. It makes a chiming sound, which they say sounds really nice. They try to figure out how it's supposed to be played. They say that maybe it's supposed to be like cymbals. They try hitting them together, which makes a dull-sounding clinking sound. Everyone laughs and the staff says that that's not what it's for. The chimes are supposed to hit against each other lightly, like a regular chime. MAMI says that it's really hard to make it sound. HARU says there's one more, which looks like something you'd normally hit to make a sound. She says that maybe RINA should play this one. MAMI says it looks like a taiko drum rather than a tambourine. They try to make it make a sound, and it sounds like a light knocking sound.

•They try to decide the final lineup of who plays which instrument. MAMI asks if HARU is going to play the ocarina (instrument #2). HARU says either that, or instrument #1. RINA says she's unsure which instrument to go with for rhythm. She seems to try out instrument #1 with both hands, which they say make a nice sound. She decides to go with it. So the final lineup seems to be: HARU = instrument #4 (chime), MAMI = instrument #2 (ocarina), TOMO = instrument #3 (bird whistle), RINA = instrument #5 (some kind of drum?). HARU then asks their director what they had planned to have the audience do for this. He says that they hadn't planned anything for them, but clapping would be good to do. He also says that meaningless laughter works as well (as in the laughter the audience will probably make when hearing the band attempt a jingle). The band is amused by that and HARU wonders if the staff will include that laughter in the final jingle. MAMI asks what kind of tempo they're going for and goes, "Are we going for an intense one?" She and the others laugh at this. HARU says that since this is a Valentine's-themed episode, they should do it based on an existing Meiji jingle. HARU and TOMO briefly start singing this. Their director says to first make a jingle that advertises the "Catch up" program. HARU mentions that they had tried playing the melodies for "one more time" and "MIRROR" for the last jingles they did. MAMI asks the audience to raise their hands if there's anyone who has a song that they want them to play. One person suggests "SPICE." RINA jokes that that is an intense song (connecting to what MAMI said earlier). TOMO goes, "How does 'SPICE' go, again?" The others and the audience laugh. HARU and MAMI both sing/hum the chorus a bit. MAMI says it seems hard to do but they'll try it out.

•They test out their respective instruments and then try out playing the jingle.  RINA says that they did pretty well. Their director asks if they're done, or if they want to try another take. RINA says that they'll do another, and asks the others what they should do to close it out. HARU laughs and says she has no idea how to close it out. They decide to play the chorus all the way through, and then TOMO will close it out with her bird whistle. They do their second take and say that that one was really good.

•The Valentine's jingle is then recorded. The staff says to HARU that just singing it is okay (she doesn't need to play her instrument as well), and that they'll also have the audience help out by clapping. RINA taps out the beat for the audience to follow, and then tells HARU to try singing. She starts singing the Meiji jingle that she and TOMO had sung a bit earlier. TOMO is caught off guard and says something in surprise and starts to play her whistle. Chimes are also heard being played. They finish and HARU asks if it seems doable. RINA says while laughing that it seems that TOMO's having the most trouble. HARU says that they'll all keep getting better. They do a second take. After, HARU says that the audience's clapping should be a little louder. TOMO also says that they can all say "Meiji" at the end. HARU says that the band has improved their instrument-playing a lot since the start of this segment. They do the third and final take. After, they all excitedly say that it went really well. They ask the staff if it was good, which they seem to say it was.

•They then close out the episode. They say how this episode will come out the very next day, which they say is amazing. HARU says that there's usually about a week between when they record an episode until it's released, so their staff will start editing it right after this recording's finished. RINA says that they talked even more than they usually do, and HARU says while laughing that this episode was also probably even more disorganized than usual. TOMO jokingly goes, "Sorry about that!"

Releasing a new song

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 8 TyjRO2F

We unveiled this info yesterday, but...
We'll be releasing a new song for the first time in forever!

「Line of sight」
Will be released digitally on March 15th

Can't believe it's apparently our first new song in a year
It doesn't feel like that to us at all
It's scary how fast time flies

We're always contemplating
And creating something,
But a lot of power and time is needed
In order to complete a song〜
This time especially☺

This is a cool, uptempo song
That was created
With the utmost care and attention to detail,
And packed with as much as we can do right now,
So we hope you'll look forward to it!

I'm happy that the cover is also being well received
Every single one of your reactions
Really give us strength
Thank you!

Also, a reminder that SCANDAL will be doing a YouTube Live tonight from 9 pm JST.

And, unfortunately, they just posted on their LINE account that MAMI will not be appearing due to being under the weather.

(~in front of all the listeners who have gathered~)

RINA: I'm so happy~!

TOMOMI: About 50 people were chosen via lottery from among the many applicants.

RINA: You were all chosen from among enough applicants to fill up Quattro (*a small music club)!

TOMOMI: Congratulations!

RINA: Congratulations!

HARUNA: Don't be nervous; just enjoy yourselves.

RINA: We won't say anything it's okay

HARUNA: We've stirred things up quite a bit, though.

RINA: Yeah, we did say a lot of things on air the other day.

TOMOMI: Like, "Please each have a story ready to go."

HARUNA: (*to the staff) ...So, are we going to start recording now?

Staff: We've been rolling for some time now.

HARUNA: Eh, we have!?

RINA: Eh, what do we do?

Staff: Please start by saying hello.

HARUNA: So the usual, then.
Good evening, everyone. This is SCANDAL's vocalist HARUNA,
Bassist TOMOMI,
Guitarist MAMI,
And drummer RINA.

HARUNA: So... today is February 12, the first "recording field trip" of SCANDAL Catch up. We finally get to meet our listeners in person!

RINA: We've really been looking forward to this day! We thought it would be nice to have a chance to meet our fans outside of concerts, and this number of people here is also exquisite.

HARUNA: This is a good size for the first time we're doing this.

RINA: Are these "recording field trips" going to get even bigger??

HARUNA: It's possible, isn't it??

TOMOMI: Eventually.

MAMI: Like Tokyo Dome!?

TOMOMI: Before we play a solo concert there.

RINA: We've never even done a solo concert there, and now we're going to Tokyo Dome for a Catch up "recording field trip."

HARUNA: That's crazy. At any rate, this will be a fun recording, so please enjoy observing. Since you've come all this way, please participate in this recording. We plan to ask many questions.

TOMOMI: Are there any teachers here??

7 people raise their hands...!

All: Ehー!! Teachers~!!

HARUNA: One, two...

All: Hey! Teacher!!

MAMI: We met some teachersー!!

TOMOMI: What kind of teachers are you guys??

HARUNA: That's really amazing. Something must be going on.

RINA: This makes me happy. I'm happy that teachers listen to our music!

Our documentary film
Is now physically in our hands〜! So happy〜!

We didn't ask
For photos of Paris to be taken in the rain
With the intention of using it as cover art,
But it fits the tone of the content perfectly◎

I really like
The photos on the back and inside as well.
Also, there is bonus footage
That includes live footage of
"Kanojo wa Wave" and "Ao no Naru Yoru no Sukima de" in Paris,
As well as footage from our trip
That didn't fit into the main part of the film☺

Ah〜, I hope it reaches all sorts of people,
This film, that is.
I'm glad we got to leave this tour behind like this.
It'll go on sale next Wednesday.

On its release day,
We will be doing a YouTube Live〜!
