Don't know how that would work since they seem to enjoy playing just about anything!
I think they enjoy pleasing their audience, definitely, but some songs have got to be more fun for them to play than others. It just makes sense. For example, after playing "Doll" live over 400 times, they probably would rather play something they don't play that often, like "Glamorous You".



Friendship. Effort. Victory.

•Finally, they talk about Nagoya, the seventh and final performance of the tour. The rankings switched around a bit between the same songs as Sapporo. The celebrity-requested song was "Shunkan Sentimental," requested by Airi Suzuki. HARU says that ShunSen certainly is a popular song. RINA mentions how they did a collaboration with her for this song before.
If I'm not mistaken they sing Shunkan Sentimental together at Halloween 2016?

TOMO says that at JAPAN JAM everyone was dancing during SCABABY, which was a first. They were basically wondering, "How do all of these people know this song?!" HARU says that the intro is pretty strong and RINA says that it's easy to go along with the beat even if you don't know the song.
Do you know which intro to "Scandal Baby" Haruna is talking about? Does she mean the part after "Let's go!" Does she mean the part before that, the melody version that is on the albums? They don't play that beginning much live anymore. The latest one on YouTube is at the 10th anniversary show.  Does she mean the chord version that they usually play at live shows now?

It's that one. At pre-pandemic concerts, the entire crowd would jump up and down while raising their fists and yelling "Hey! Hey!" along to the beat. I'm sure it's the same now, only with no yelling and likely no jumping.

Looking back on 『SCANDAL MANIA TOUR 2021 "request"』, part 2! What did HARUNA wanted to eat before a concert no matter what...?

Episode #63 blog


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 IqIGLL3




HARUNA: This week we'll be continuing looking back on 『SCANDAL MANIA TOUR 2021 "request"』 along with the fans' impressions.
It's titled...
"Zen Request Kansou Tokubetsu-hen"
Or for short...
"Zen Ri Kan Toku" Part 2.

We've chosen seven messages, one each per stop, about listeners' impressions of the tour.

We're starting off from day 1, Fukuoka!


Timo Sukiー

Good evening, SCANDAL.

I attended opening day in Fukuoka. Firstly, congrats on kicking it off.

I was honestly anxious in regards to the new format for concerts, but aside from not being able to vocalize, it was the same as before. I'm sure our loud chanting in our hearts during "Shunkan Sentimental" and "SCANDAL BABY" reached you guys.

My seat wasn't great--that is, since I was in front of Timo's hands (lol), every time I would make eye contact with TOMOMI playing the bass while smiling, my heart and my breathing would stop (lol).

There were also many SCANDAL-like happenings such as HARUNA's "Please stay with us, you guys" public proposal (lol); when you talked about a bakery during the MC, an employee from there was watching from the front row; when you read Shunichi Tanabe from BLUE ENCOUNT's super-long letter (lol), which probably made me laugh the hardest this day; when TOMOMI's outfit got caught on her bass; the special rhythm of the applause during the encore. Those are just a few of them.

During the special rhythm during the encore, everyone was clapping along fast at first, but those whose hands got tired started skipping a beat. A unique groove was born as a result of accenting the first and third beats.

Given how things are, I can't say that I'll definitely be going to Osaka-Jo Hall on August 21st, but I would like to celebrate your 15th anniversary and participate above all.



All: Thanksー!

HARUNA: They made sure to include a ton of details.

TOMOMI: That made me remember a lot of things about the Fukuoka performance! That's right; the bakery... HARUNA lined up for it .

HARUNA: It's called amam dacotan, and they have maritozzo and brioche bread...

Staff: Sorry, but we have no idea what you're saying...

HARUNA: The bakery's called "amam dacotan."

MAMI: That bakery's pretty popular right now.

HARUNA: "Maritozzo"

MAMI: ...is a bread that they have,

HARUNA: And "brioche bread"... Do you know what that is?

Staff: Nope...

HARUNA: In the center after opening up the brioche...

Staff: ...you can open it up?

MAMI: Yes, you can. They cut into it and open it up,

HARUNA: ...and it's stuffed with whipped cream. It's pretty famous.

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 63

•The episode starts with this.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who attended the Osaka performance. They say that they inadventently started crying the moment the band came out and played the first sound, and thank them for delivering live music despite the many risks right now. The band says they also felt like tearing up the entire time and everyone's expressions were conveyed despite the masks. RINA says that at their past concerts in Osaka, everyone would be shouting/cheering and such during the MCs, and that this time everyone still reacted well without vocalizing at all, which made for a new kind of atmosphere. HARU says that it's not at all lonesome for the band to talk solely amongst themselves. RINA agrees and says that it felt like everyone was properly doing aizuchi , which HARU says was mysterious.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who attended the Sendai performance. They were very happy that the first song was "Aitai" since that song is how they became a fan and it's also one that has a lot of memories attached to it as it helped encourage them when they were going through hard times. They say that the lighting was impressive during "eternal" and that they're glad they went despite of being unsure until the last minute whether or not to go. RINA says that the lighting was really nice during "eternal" and that the person who's been doing their lighting for a long time now did it on this tour too. She says they create lighting that really complements the songs and that she's happy even that aspect is properly received. TOMO says that it makes her happy to hear that they're glad they went to the concert despite being unsure. She also talks about how the band felt the same and that they had to consider a lot of different things, such as how they should take responsibility in case anything were to happen to the audience or the band. She's relieved to hear things like fans saying they're glad they went and are very proud of those who wanted to come out amidst all of this uncertainty.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who attended the Yokohama performance. They say that what HARU said during the MC not only touched them emotionally but also seemed to purify the feelings they had in the recesses of their heart, making them glad they went to the concert. The band apparently talked about how the crowd chant during the choruses of "Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne" got started, and they say that they will tell them what they know. They went to the "KAWAii MATSURi" festival held in 2013 and lined up early with friends to get a good spot. Although everyone around them was a fan of the other acts like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and SEKAI NO OWARI, they were very nice to the listener and they all got along. The listener did he best to convey to them how good of a band SCANDAL is. On the spot they and their friend decided to shout along to AwaTsumo, and afterwards the people around told them that SCANDAL's a pretty good band. Based on what they said, there seemingly was a discussion during the MC at the Yokohama "request" performance regarding how that chant came to be, and apparently HARU had guessed that it started from a taping of the song at MUSIC STATION back in 2013 that only women were allowed to attend. The listener says that they think a woman/women who attended KAWAii MATSURi decided to do the same here (the listener is not a woman and therefore was not able to attend that taping). The band is surprised by that and is happy about it, as well as happy about them trying to convert others to SCANDAL fans. TOMO says that they talked about how that chant surprised them when it first started happening since they didn't think it was the kind of song for that due to how sad the lyrics are, but now it doesn't feel like it's AwaTsumo without that chant--it's like the chant completes the song. RINA mentions how audiences abroad also do the chant, which she says is awesome.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who attended the Tokyo performance. They say this was their first time attending a SCANDAL concert and was their first time attending a concert in general in a year and a half, which was Porno Graffitti's 20th anniversary concert. The band is happy that this was the listener's first time seeing them. They then talk about Porno Graffitti and how crazy it is that it was their 20th anniversary. RINA says that they do occasionally hear of people being both Porno Graffitti and SCANDAL fans, and that Porno Graffitti is really cool. TOMO says that "20th anniversary" does sound like a long time, but when you consider that SCANDAL is celebrating their 15th anniversary, SCANDAL has been at it for quite some time as well. She wonders if there's a five year difference between the two bands, but HARU and RINA say that the 20th anniversary is in reference to PG's major label debut and that they've actually been a band for longer than that [Note: They've actually been a band since 1994 = 27 years!].

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who attended the Sapporo performance. They're currently taking online classes for college and find it hard to stay motivated, but they've decided that they'd work hard because they're looking forward to seeing SCANDAL again in Sapporo. They also ask a "Fine Line Association" question: What's the line between a "live" (ライブ) and a "concert" (コンサート)? The band wonders what it could be. RINA says that it could boil down to differences between types of artists and/or how the put on their live performances. She says that she feels a "concert" is one where you sit back and listen to the music, and that a "live"--or a "show"-- is one put on by a band and is lively. MAMI says that she imagines "concerts" to be a bit 'stiff' like an orchestra concert (RINA: "Like classical music"). They also say that it could be about the overall feel of it, and that it could boil down to what your own stance on it is. TOMO says that SCANDAL predominantly prefers to call them "lives." HARU says that when it's played at a "live house" (AKA live music club, which is a small venue), it more like a "live"; when it's at an arena, it's more like a "concert." TOMO asks if it's about what it feels like, and HARU says it's more like the differences in the venues. MAMI says that when she was younger she thought it was relative to how big an artist is (scale-wise) since her older brother was in a band and they would play at "live houses," and she'd go to bigger venues like arenas to see her favorite artists. They all agree it's difficult to say what the difference is exactly. RINA says that when they play arenas, though, it still doesn't feel like they're playing a "concert." MAMI says she thinks is does have to do with how big an artist is. TOMO says that their "SEASONS" performance last year gives off a more "concert" vibe, which the others completely agree with. TOMO says this was a good question, and RINA says that she'll look into it more. They wonder what the listener thinks the difference is and says they'll be waiting for their reply. They also tell them to keep working hard in school.

[Personally, I agree that's it's kind of difficult to say what the difference is between the two, but I do think that what they said about how a "live"/"show" is what you would call a live performance like SCANDAL's usual ones, and that a "concert" is one that's more laidback and that you sit down for. However, in English, you don't really refer to a live performance as a "live" (it's too broad of a term and "live" could refer to anything and not just a live music performance) and therefore I've been using "concert" to refer to SCANDAL's performances just because that word almost always refers to a live music performance. But I wholeheartedly agree that performances put on by bands such as SCANDAL are better referred to as "shows." Maybe I should start using "show" then lol but anyway!]

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who attended the Nagoya performance, which was the final stop of the tour. They say that they were glad to hear their favorite song "A.M.D.K.J." live, and that they got goosebumps over how crazy "Tonight" is live. They used to vote for "A.M.D.K.J." in the popular song poll every day but now vote for "Tonight." The band says it makes them happy to hear when peoples' favorite song changes because they hear it live. RINA says that there are songs that give off a different impression live compared to the recorded version of it. They mention the intro rhythm of the song and that MAMI plays that it alone, which is another nice aspect of the song. MAMI says that "Tonight" is a cool song, so she wants people to take notice of it. HARU says that it certainly is hard to imagine how this song would sound live. RINA says that there probably were a lot of people who were wondering how it'd be performed live since it doesn't have the typical band sound to it. TOMO says, "It's dance music, so dance to it!" They then talk about "A.M.D.K.J." and how popular it is. RINA says that it is pretty exciting live and it's probably fun to watch the band since they do a lot of big actions during it. HARU says that they do feel more powerful when playing it, and RINA says that it's like they transform. MAMI says that it's gone above "Shunkan Sentimental." She says ShunSen is of course a very important song for them and a true turning point for them, but after they became able to write their own songs, they wanted to make similar kinds of songs by themselves--that's why she's very happy to hear things like that about songs they've written themselves.

•They then close out the episode. They mention things like how much they talked on tour during the MCs (RINA: "This was a tour that should be documented"), that they were glad they were able to successfully hold it during this time (TOMO: "It really feels like a miracle"), that this tour made them feel that they can continue working hard to keep the band going because they have their fans, and that the fans also participated in creating this tour. They thank everyone for the happy times.

A project to celebrate MAMI & TOMOMI's birthdays! The key to giving presents to the listeners is a "roulette"?

Episode #64 blog


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 Nq6ZExB




HARUNA: We usually record at our management office, but...

*Construction sounds*: Takka-takka-takka-takka...

HARUNA: What perfect timing... It seems that construction is being done on the upper floor of the office...
You may hear construction sounds occasionally, but we won't be worrying about it.

TOMOMI: We usually would go somewhere else... But this time we're being stubborn and will stay right here.

*Construction sounds*: Takka-takka-takka-takka...

RINA: It's quite loud...

HARUNA: The background music end up being construction sounds...

MAMI: I'm sure people are bothered by it. So sorry about this...

HARUNA: Now then birthday presents from Meiji have been delivered for TOMOMI and MAMI, whose birthdays are in May!

TOMOMI: Thanks so much!
MAMI: Thanks so much!

*claps*

HARUNA: The presents are in front of you guys... Go ahead and open them!

*They open the presents*

TOMOMI: Isn't this crazy? This is the first time I've seen this...

MAMI: A box with 10 containers of my favorite Coffee Beat...and there are several of them.
Right?

TOMOMI: I got boxes of Twinkle Chocolate...

MAMI: I've never seen that before!

TOMOMI: Same here.

MAMI: You can't see it unless you buy it.

RINA: Never seen it.

*Construction sounds*: Takka-takka-takka-takka...

TOMOMI: Even though we're opening them right nowー!

HARUNA: It's a celebratory sound.

MAMI: Right - thanks.

TOMOMI: I'm so happy. Thanks so much.

MAMI: Thanks so much!

HARUNA: So, we were wondering if you'd share the wealth and give some Coffee Beats and Twinkle Chocolate to the listeners whose messages are read today...

MAMI: Ehー, what should I do...

TOMOMI: I'll give them some Twinkle Chocolate.

HARUNA: MAMI-chan always scarfs down Coffee Beat...

MAMI: That's right.

HARUNA: This week we'll just be reading messages.



I always stand on the left side at SCANDAL's concerts

SCANDAL, thank you for your hard work at your concerts and the festival.

I went to the Yokohama and Tokyo performances with my girlfriend who hasn't yet remembered the titles of your songs nor the names of the members.

Both of them were so much fun and my girlfriend was also very pleased.

I was particularly pleased to hear "Koisuru Universe." Only this song is special. I think I was able to start dating my girlfriend because of "Koisuru Universe."

I got to know her via social media. We didn't show much interest in each other when we met for the first time, but after meeting two or three times, we fell in love with each other. The timing wasn't right nor did I have the courage to confess, so three months passed without me being able to confess.

On the morning of a certain date, I felt a hunch that I had to confess that day, and we went on our date with nothing planned out. But in the end, I walked her home and wasn't able to say it.

She entered the entrance of the building, and just before she got to her unit, I called her on the phone and said, "Would you like to hang out again?" I asked her to come out and I finally confessed.

I was able to confess that day because I heard "Koisuru Universe" over and over again for the 40 minutes it took for me to leave my house via the bus and arrive at the place I met up with her.

While I was slightly aware of the scenery and each other's feelings that the streetlights were illuminating on the way back across the bridge at night to send her, I felt that the feelings that were timing were exactly in line with the song, and I felt at the very end. Was told.

I chose "Koisuru Universe" because I thought this song was good, and it ended up giving me courage.

I'm sure we still wouldn't have be dating without SCANDAL's "Koisuru Universe."

I've been voting for "Koisuru Universe" every day since the Tokyo performance.



HARUNA: It really is true that songs can encourage you.

RINA: And it fits perfectly the situation and their feelings. I'm glad you guys started dating without a hitch.

TOMOMI: Congrats!

All: Thanks so much!

HARUNA: Now let's give them a present. It'll be determined via roulette.

RINA: There's some kind of app for that.

•The episode starts with this. TOMO does the roulette to determine the prize for the listener, and it lands on five pieces of sweets. They then try determining how much of each they should give. TOMO says that since the listener's a guy, he'd probably like bitter things more. They decide that they'll give him 3 Coffee Beats and give the girlfriend 2 Twinkles.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who talks about how they got hooked on SCANDAL, which is in part due to their girlfriend liking them and recommending listening to them back in March. That was around the time the lineup for the JAPAN JAM festival was announced and they decided to go together. They started listening to SCANDAL and thought they were all really good songs. They had a great time seeing SCANDAL at the festival, and say that they've also listened to all episodes of "Catch up," have joined the fan club, and plan to go to the 15th anniversary concert with their girlfriend. The band goes, "Did they do all that in two months [between the festival announcement and the festival itself]?!" and say they must not have slept. They say that what they said makes them happy, and that going to festivals with someone you love is the best. They tell them several times to get some sleep. MAMI then spins the roulette app to see how many pieces of sweets they'll receive. It lands on 5 again and they decide to give them 3 Coffee Beats and 2 Twinkles. 10 pieces total have now been given out.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener whose message had been read during the Valentine's episode (U-tan). They say they've been in constant contact with the guy and they were finally able to meet in person during Golden Week, and now they can say they're finally in a real relationship with each other. They thank the band and mention that, by the way, they are a teacher (SCANDAL: "Hey! Teacher!"). The band says that's great and that must have taken a lot of courage. TOMO spins the roulette wheel and once again lands on 5. They all laugh and TOMO says that they're only landing on 5. HARU says that it did land on other numbers like 3 when they had tested it out earlier. MAMI thinks that maybe only 5s are coming up because the first one they landed on was 5. They try it again and it lands on a different number, which means that what MAMI thought isn't true. They then decide on which pieces to give the listener. HARU says that the listener's a girl so MAMI goes, "Then Twinkle..." TOMO laughs and says, "Twinkle's only for girls?", which the others also laugh at. They give the listener 3 Twinkles, 2 Coffee Beats. 15 pieces total have now been given out.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who is a 36-year-old barber and asks the band to go, "Hey! Barber!" like they do for "Hey! Teacher!" They laugh and say, "That's great!" and say it. The listener says that the other day on the way back from work, his wife asks him if he's bought a t-shirt recently. He says no, and that he's not wasting money. She said that a t-shirt was delivered to their house, and when he looked closely, he realized that he had been sent a signed SCANDAL t-shirt that he won from their fan clubs. He says he was really happy and was grinning a lot, and that was when his wife said, "I'll sign that t-shirt too," to which he said he politely declined. The band laughs at this and RINA says that the wife has a great personality. The listener says that they've been married for five years and that his wife is six years younger than him, and it was cute when she sang SCANDAL songs at karaoke when they first started dating. He says her birthday is in August and he wants to buy her some cosmetics and put them in an Apollo pouch (TOMO: "But the pouch is so small!"), and so asks for one. They laugh and HARU goes, "Hey, we're giving out sweets this episode!" They say that just via text they could tell how the couple both have such great personalities. The roulette falls on 3 pieces of sweets and they decide to give 2 Coffee Beats, 1 Twinkle. 18 pieces total have now been given out. HARU says it's likely more barbers will be writing in to the program now.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who heard the words of encouragement another listener sent in to another listener during episode 57 (the one read by HARU). They thank the band for their words of encouragement, and are impressed that they were encouraged just by listening to the stories of people who are going through the same things and are cheering each other on. The listener says that their wedding ceremony, which has been postponed due to the pandemic, will finally be held in August. Due to this, as well as how things are currently are in Osaka, they will not be attending the 15th anniversary concert (they also have never gotten a chance to see them live before). But like the listener in the previous episode, they too believe that bad things won't last forever. They'll keep working hard and will go to a SCANDAL concert one day. The band says that there are a lot of listeners are connected via this program and that there will be more concerts for the listener to go to in the future. RINA says that everyone shares the same worries since no one knows what will happen in the future. They also say it's great that they made a decision based on what's more important to them. Both the concert and the ceremony are important things, but the things that are more closely related to your day-to-day life are more important. The roulette lands on 3 once more and they give them 1 Twinkle, 2 Coffee Beats. 21 pieces total have now been given out.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who's a graduate student and saw SCANDAL at JAPAN JAM. They also talk about their specialty, which is computational skills in the civil engineering field. It's basically about analyzing the physical phenomena of tsunamis, earthquakes, fire, wind flow, etc. by computer simulation. They say that just as SCANDAL saves people around the world with music, they're doing research every day to physically protect people from disasters. The band thinks that's really cool and thanks them for doing the work they do. The roulette lands on 3 again (TOMO: "It's only landing on 3 or 5"), and they give the listener 1 Twinkle, 2 Coffee Beats. HARU says that they'll probably end with the last message. 24 pieces total have now been given out.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who is now dating the guy they like, who she says is loved by his friends and perfect inside and out. She says she also wants to get closer to his ideals and make herself cute both inside and out. She asks, however, how she can change who she is on the inside. She says that his type is someone who doesn't seem like a person and more like an unknown creature. HARU and TOMO seem confused, and TOMO goes, "What does that mean?" RINA repeats that line again. HARU's like, "Oh," but TOMO goes, "Wait a minute..." and laughs. HARU says that RINA should read the message in its entirety first. The listener says that she seems to apply to the guy's ideal type but says, "What would you think if I were a human being, a so-called ordinary girl? If I had to choose, I want to be a human girl who's cute both inside and out." The band laughs and MAMI goes, "Well of course." The listener asks the band if they should be an unknown creature or a human like they've always been. The band is kind of confused by this and HARU goes, "Is he an alien or something?" TOMO goes, "He's perfect on the inside??", which the others laugh at. RINA says that it probably means that he likes people that are very unique. They basically say that if the listener wants to be a human, she should say that herself and go with a way of living that's more comfortable for her. The roulette lands on 5 pieces. TOMO says they should go with 5 Twinkles because of how mysterious this message was. MAMI says that the listener doesn't need to speed up turning into an "unknown creature." TOMO then goes, "On the contrary, let's give them 5 Coffee Beats." HARU laughs and goes, "'On the contrary'?!" They say that living the way that's easiest for you is most important. 29 pieces of sweets total were given out (19 Coffee Beats, 10 Twinkles).

I was able to confess that day because I heard "Koisuru Universe" over and over again for the 40 minutes it took for me to leave my house via the bus and arrive at the place I met up with her.
Can relate! Although I don't understand Japanese, I've always found KoiUni to be a very romantic song after reading the English translation. Music does empower people to do things they couldn't before!

Holding the fourth "Fine Line Association" meeting! Where's the line between a "live" and a "concert"?

Episode #65 blog


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 6ezWjxZ




HARUNA: Today we'll be holding a "Fine Line Association" meeting for the first time in forever.

RINA: Yayー!!!

HARUNA: This is probably the fourth one... We keep saying "probably."

Staff: Officially, this is the fourth one. We've been introducing topics here and there...

HARUNA: Let's get straight into reading messages from members. This is one of the agenda items already under consideration.


Kouichi

The fine line between "concerts" and "lives (AKA shows)" is, as far as I know, and in the true sense of the word, all general concerts that are not recorded are "'live' concerts."

There's also things like "Something performed solo (or solo plus accompaniment) is not a concert but a recital." In that sense, lives put on by bands or idol groups are also "concerts," and concerts put on by classical/jazz musicians are also "lives."

Also, I think it's like adding or not adding "live" to the name, or calling it a "gig" or "performance" according to one's liking.

It's normal in Japan to say "I'm going to a live," but "live" can mean "living" or "in person"--that's why in most cases overseas, you need to say "I'm going to a concert" in order to convey the same thing [Note: I previously mentioned this very thing lol].



TOMOMI: Saying "live" wouldn't really be conveyed overseas.

RINA: It basically means you're playing a "concert."

MAMI: Is that why Gian calls it a "recital " [in Doraemon]...?

HARUNA: You're right!

TOMOMI: It's a live, as well as a concert, as well as a recital.

HARUNA: The performers are solo, hence "recital."

MAMI: For us, we mean a "live concert."

TOMOMI: Here's a new agenda.


Yurina

There's a fine line topic I want to hear you guys talk about, so I sent in this message!

That would be: stingy vs. frugal.

Since I am married, I had planned to manage my own food expenses. However, I was surprised to hear this story the other day about my friend's husband.

There are tubes of butter that make it easy to put on bread, right? His wife bought it and he flipped out. According to the friend, it's expensive since it's convenient and there isn't much product in it. He thinks it's a waste. I feel a bit sorry for the wife, with the husband getting mad at simply over a tube of butter.

Incidentally, I've never been told that by my husband. We use tubes of butter all the time since it's convenient (haha).

At the same time I thought that maybe their situation at home is different, and I was worried that perhaps they did so in order to make ends meet.

Also, it seems that my husband's friend is cutting down on living expenses and looking forward to buying a new car.

Whether my husband's friend is "stingy" or "frugal"...I'm very curious to know, so I'd like the members of the association to please discuss it!



All: I see...

RINA: That's something we can talk a lot about...

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 65


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 NnhaJg7
front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 QyxwuGb





•The episode starts with this.

•They then discuss the line between stingy vs. frugal (in Japanese, ケチ [kechi] vs 節約家 [setsuyakuka]). They talk a little too much about it lol so I'll try to keep it short. They say that "stingy" has a negative feel to it, and that everyone's probably frugal in some way/a saver. Those that are savers can devise ways to review living expenses for themselves and others, or to save because they want to buy something, and those that are stingy think about how something can be given back to them (ie. "I did/bought this for you, so do/buy this for me"). They say that stingy would be thinking that it's useless to spend money on something that you think won't benefit yourself. The husband's opinion that the tube of butter is expensive for how much product you actually get, but buying something for the convenience of it is also very important, and they say the wife should continue to buy the tubes of butter. They also mention how their own habits when buying clothes have changed in recent years. They used to be like, "Oh, there's this shoot coming up so I'll buy this just for that" and only wear it that one time, but now they wear things that they truly like and will wear it several times when they're working too--it gives it more of a real feel when they wear things for shoots/jobs and whatnot that they wear during their downtime too. They say something like that might be related to age.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who cleans before going to work since they want to come home to a clean place. When they get home they return their bag to a specific place in preparation for the next day, and on days off they start their day off by cleaning in the morning. They're aware they like to be tidy, but the people they know call them "fastidious," which they don't think they are. They ask the band to draw the line between "cleanly person" and a "neat freak." The band thinks that being neat is a good thing and that you can't generalize wanting to keep your place clean or having a routine as being "fastidious"; it's like it's lifting up your own mood. RINA says that coming home to a messy place only makes you feel more worn out. She also mentions how she's never been able to directly eat the food from a utensil like a fork or spoon when she eats out--she uses her teeth to grab the food from the utensil. She says this could be considered being fastidious [Note: Uh, RINA, this sounds more like OCD tendencies lol]. She also mentions how she doesn't touch elevator buttons with her fingertips but rather the second knuckle on her fingers, which is something she's done since she was little. The other members know exactly what she's talking about. RINA also says that when going through non-automatic doors, she slips into the space that the person in front of her leaves instead of opening it up herself. HARU says that everyone likely has something different that they're fastidious about. For example, someone could be like RINA and not eat from a restaurant's utensils but are okay with going in hot springs. RINA says that something may be fastidiousness if it reaches a level that interferes with your life. HARU says that the more of fastidious you are, the more it'll stand out. MAMI says that it's not a bad thing to be a "cleanly person" nor a "neat freak." TOMO says that it's probably better to be one of those right now (amidst the pandemic), which the others agree with.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who asks the band what the line is between a "fan" and an "otaku" (AKA geek/nerd), in the context of musical artists. TOMO says it's not exactly correct to call people "otaku" when they're well-versed on one specific topic. She says that fans are people who simply love an artist, which is why otaku are also considered fans, but they're also very well-versed on a specific topic like an artist. They say it can be considered a talent and a good thing. Construction sounds can be heard in the background all the while they're talking about this topic, which they do mention (RINA: "The construction sounds are intense right now"). They say that the line could be the amount of knowledge you know about the subject, and they again mention that they think that's a good thing. RINA says that talking with "otaku" can be very interesting, and that the YouTuber Sakana-kun is really interesting. TOMO says that she loves his videos and explains what the channel's about: In the Animal Crossing games, there's this owl character that will give you information about the fish or bugs you catch in the game--however, some of the info given is incorrect, and Sakana-kun makes videos that correct that info. RINA says that the video he made about brass musical instruments was really interesting. They end it by saying again that otaku are interesting, and as an example say that Sakana-kun is a fish otaku.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who asks them what they like better: yakiudon or yakisoba. The staff laughs and the band goes, "Obviously we like both!" HARU says she's really unsure, but RINA says there's one she overwhemingly favors. TOMO says that she's good with both. MAMI says that she's decided. They laugh and say that this "Which do you like better?" topic surprisingly really gets them excited. RINA says they'll all say their choices together. HARU and RINA say yakiudon while TOMO and MAMI say yakisoba. MAMI says that it depends on what toppings are included on it, such as a sauce; in that case, she'd go with yakiudon. TOMO says that she really loves yakisoba that you eat from stalls at festivals. At home, RINA says that she cooks way more udon such as yakiudon in soup. HARU agrees and says that she eats more udon than soba. TOMO also agrees and says that she eats more udon. They say that there's definitely something special about yakisoba sold at stalls. TOMO says there's some kind of magic put into it, which the others agree with. She says that Fujinomiya yakisoba in particular is really delicious, which others also agree with too. They again say how much they love this topic.

•TOMO reads the last message from a listener who asks them what they like better: firm pudding or creamy pudding. The band says right away they know which they like more. HARU, MAMI, and RINA go for creamy while TOMO goes for firm. TOMO says she doesn't like pudding that's has the consistency of whipped cream, and that firm pudding reminds her of ones she's had way back when at cafes. MAMI says that firm ones make her feel like she's eating jello--it's a matter of texture. TOMO asks her what she thinks about the pudding in cups that you put on a plate (like these ; they're usually firmer in texture), and MAMI says that she doesn't like those as they're too firm for her. RINA says that when she was in elementary and there was a time when they served really soft pudding, she went, "Wow, what is this?!" and started to love creamy pudding. HARU says it was similar to what happened to her too; she was super shocked when she had really good creamy pudding for the first time. They say again that both are good. TOMO says that creamy pudding seems more popular; she often sees those kinds at convenience stores.

•They then close out the episode. RINA says that she'd like for people to send in non-food-related topics as there's a bit of a limit to those. HARU says that people probably send in food topics due to the program's "supported by Meiji Apollo" tagline, and that food topics are easy to understand. They again say that different topics are welcome.

Holding the fifth "I see - The Catch up"! Questions from overseas listeners for SCANDAL are "educational"!

Episode #66 blog


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 Ax4Bhvx




HARUNA: All right, this week... Everyone around the world, HELLO WORLD! It's "I see - The Catch up - The fifth"!

RINA: Eh, we're already on the fifth one??

HARUNA: Apparently this is the fifth one.

TOMOMI: Wouldn't it be "The fifth! I see - The Catch up"?

HARUNA: Yeah, maybe so.

TOMOMI: On the contrary, [the title that way] is unique... Even so, the fifth one came around fast...

HARUNA: A segment we can have precisely because SCANDAL has fans around the world! We do quizzes based on messages from overseas!

So far...
Estonia, Malaysia, Argentina, Italy, Russia, USA, Australia, Philippines are the countries we've based quizzes on.

I love SCANDAL!!
I started studying Japanese last fall because I want to talk to SCANDAL.
Everyone is so talented that the music is great!
Presently, my favorite songs are "Weather report" and "Tsuki" because they are beautiful songs.

(*Bzzt)

MAMI: Canada!
(*Bzzt)

HARUNA: Russia!
(*Bzzt)

TOMOMI: Germany!
(*Bzzt)

•The episode starts with this.

•Right after TOMO guesses Germany, she guesses France, which is the correct answer. HARU asks the staff if there's a city in France called Orleans [yes, there is ]. She then reads how it's named after Philippe II, Duke of Orleans, and how there's still a French Quarter there that has a French-like atmosphere to it. The band say that they'd like to go there.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener in Taiwan who actually gives them a quiz question themselves:

There are still Japanese words used in the Taiwanese language. There's one peculiar word that was born in Taiwan. What does "Atama konkuri" (アタマコンクリ) [Note: it literally means 'head concrete'] mean in Japanese?

•TOMO guesses "ishiatama" (石頭; hard-headed) (*Bzzt), then "ganko" (頑固; stubborn) (*Bzzt). She then says that it probably doesn't mean what it seems to mean, but the staff says something like it's kind of similar to what she guessed? MAMI guesses "karada katai" (体固い; stiff body) (*Bzzt). TOMO guesses "majime" (真面目; serious) (*Bzzt). HARU guesses "atama ga ii" (頭がいい; smart) (*Bzzt). MAMI guesses "bukiyou" (不器用; clumsy) (*Bzzt), then "yuuzuu ga kikanai" (融通が利かない; inflexible) (*Bzzt). The staff then gives them a hint that it's related to how a person thinks. HARU and MAMI guess "atama no kaiten ga osoi" (頭の回転が遅い), which means someone's slow on the uptake, but the staff says isn't quite it. TOMO then guesses "atama no kaiten ga warui" (頭の回転が悪い). It basically means the same thing but seems to be more negative and so would probably translate closer to "stupid," which is the correct answer. HARU reads more about it and how it has a slightly different meaning than words like stubborn or hard-headed. The staff seems to say that it's like mixing concrete, AKA someone who's thick. MAMI says it gives off a heavy feeling. RINA says that it's kind of a harsh word. They say that they didn't know this word existed in Taiwan despite the many times they've been there.

•The listener also requests for them to live stream their 15th anniversary concert since foreigners cannot enter Japan at this time, and also asks for them to release it on DVD. MAMI goes, "Is this person Japanese or what?" (since the way they write sounds close to what native Japanese speakers would write), which they all laugh at. HARU goes, "Let's do it!" MAMI says that they'll do as much as they're able to. TOMO says that they do want many people to see it. HARU says that they'll do their best to live stream the concert!

•The "I see - The Catch up" segment then ends and they start reading messages from fans in Japan. HARU reads the next message from a listener who writes in about Tsugaru dialect and how single words are used to express other words. The examples they list are "か・け・め・わ・な" (ka, ke, me, wa, na). "Ka" means "douzo" (どうぞ; go ahead). "Ke" means three things: "choudai" (ちょうだい; please), "tabete" (食べて; eat), "kayui" (かゆい; itchy). "Me" means "oishii" (おいしい; delicious). "Wa" means "watashi" (私; I, me). "Na" means "anata" (あなた; you). The band says that that's interesting but difficult to remember. They talk a little more about this, but I won't be translating it because it's too hard to translate into English lol

•TOMO reads the next and last message from a listener who asks them if they like soft or firm foods like rice better. MAMI says that she likes firm foods better since she wants to feel that she's chewing food. This includes udon, soba, pasta, and rice. HARU says that she also likes firm foods better. RINA talks about rice and how she likes rice on the softer side--when she cooks rice, she puts enough water in so that it rises a bit over the rice. MAMI says that she makes it even with white rice and puts a little more in with brown rice. HARU says that it can also vary according to what rice cooker you're using. RINA says that she likes pasta and udon to be on the firm side. They talk a little about how those in Nagoya like stuff like udon cooked in miso, that udon in the Kansai region are more firm, and also say that they liked the firm udon in the Shikoku region. They agree that both soft and firm are good. TOMO says that it depends on the day. The staff asks them about ramen noodles. TOMO says she likes them at regular doneness, but she admires those that order firm ones. The staff and band laughs at that. HARU says that she likes them firm when the noodles are thin, like Hakata-style ramen. She says that their preference varies depending on what kind of food it is.

•They then close out the episode. They say how they're grateful they have listeners worldwide, and RINA laughs and says that their goal with "Catch up" is to increase their listeners in Japan and that they'll do their best on that front. MAMI says that Spotify lets people worldwide listen to the program. RINA then mentions that her Japan follower count on Instagram has finally reached 30%, which HARU laughs at. MAMI goes, "That many?!" RINA says that her goal for this year is to get her Japan followers to reach 50%. HARU goes, "The year's already halfway over...", which RINA laughs at and goes, "That's true." They also joke and go, "We're speaking Japanese, right?"; "We're Japanese, right?"; and RINA goes, "I was born in Osaka, right?" HARU says that they'll keep making this a program that both people from around the world and Japan can all enjoy.

Thorough dissection of the new song "Ivory"! Digging deeper into the production process and the back side!

Episode #67 blog


front-page - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 15 VaPVz0u




HARUNA: Now then, for this week... We'll be doing a thorough commentary--no, dissection of our new single Ivory releasing on 6/16. It is called, "Fukabori! Aiborii!" (深掘り! アイボリー!; Digging deep! Ivory!)

RINA: I get a chill from that title...

TOMOMI: "Fukabori, Aiborii"...

MAMI: Wow. Bring it on...

TOMOMI: It sounds like a rap.

MAMI: It rhymes. We let our guard down...

RINA: Why is it giving me chills?

MAMI: Like, it's not the usual kind of title.

TOMOMI: It's because it's from Ono-san. We need to remember that he absolutely comes up with something every time.

HARUNA: It's always like this.

MAMI: For "eternal," it was "Eh? Soo naru?" (え?そーなる?; Eh? Seriously?).

TOMOMI: We didn't get it at all when we first heard "Eh? Seriously?"

RINA: No, we didn't.

HARUNA: We certainly didn't get it right away, but this time it's "Digging deep! Ivory!", which is a little nicer, right?

RINA: It feels kind of gross...or rather, it feels weird.

TOMOMI: He didn't give it his all...

RINA: What's up with that...

TOMOMI: But...on second thought, this isn't the right place to be dissecting it thoroughly.

HARUNA: Yes, we won't be digging further into this title!

This week, we will thoroughly be explaining our new song "Ivory"!

HARUNA: Again, this song is our second single celebrating our 15th anniversary. The lyrics and music, as well as the main vocals are by MAMI.

MAMI: I thought of the melody while in the bath last summer... I was in the bath, so naturally I didn't have any instruments nor a guitar with me, so I went with the momentum and recorded it as a voice memo and suddenly sent it to RINA, saying, "I just thought of this. What do you think?" That's how this song started. I didn't make it thinking that I'd be the one singing it, but as I had written it as a sort of soliloquy, everyone was like, "Why don't you do main vocals for it?" when they were listening to the demo.
