•The episode starts with this.

•The next thing they talk about are the different editions (info on them can be found here). They first talk about the DVD Edition and say that they talked a lot during the interview. Next, the Magazine Edition. They say they also talked about a lot of things and that each member was photographed in different locations for their solo interviews (most likely like Vol.1). After that, they talk about the DVD+Merch version. They say the long-sleeve shirt is really cute, and taking the time of year into account, they went with a long-sleeve shirt this time instead of their usual short-sleeve one. The design is one where they want fans to use a mirror to take selfies in while wearing the shirt.

•Their upcoming tour in support of the album is talked about next. HARU says the Japan dates run from March to June, which is a pretty long time. After that they'll head out on their first world tour in forever. They say they feel like they're coming back little by little. HARU mentions how it says "and more" in the tour promo image and that more info will be coming soon. She says that their overseas listeners must also be looking forward to this tour (RINA: "We finally will get to see them"), and that they always get a bunch of messages from overseas fans sent in to the program. RINA says that they've never gone this long without going overseas before (since they had been going overseas at least once per year from 2008-2019), and that the fans must have been passionately waiting for this to happen. They say they're looking forward to it, and that they'll keep talking about info related to MIRROR on "Catch up."

•They then start the seventh "Kyoukai-sen Kyoukai" (Fine Line Association) segment. HARU reads the first message from a listener who asks them what the fine line is between autumn and winter. TOMO says that the period of time when it felt like it was autumn felt very short this year, which the others agree with. RINA starts to say something but her voice is all scratchy. The others laugh and TOMO asks her if her voice is okay. RINA laughs and says that her voice is gone due to the several days in a row they've been doing interviews. MAMI says that RINA's hoarse voice surprised her, and then says that it feels like winter when baked sweet potatoes are offered for sale at the market or convenience stores. HARU says that it feels like winter when you have to break out a coat. RINA agrees and says that it feels like winter when it's so cold you can't bear it anymore and have to wear a coat. TOMO says when she has to bring out a futon. RINA says a big part of realizing when it's winter is when your skin feels it, like, "It's so cold right now--it feels like winter." They also talk about how it's kind of hard to tell when autumn starts and begins. It's kind of like a transition period that happens in September-October and between summer when it's really hot, to winter when it's really cold. RINA says it's completely different now than how she remembers it when she was a child in her hometown, which the others agree with. MAMI says that the Halloween decorations at Disneyland or Universal Studios Japan changing to Christmas ones makes it feel like winter's. HARU says that Halloween might have a big deal to do with the transition from autumn to winter; as soon as it's over, it's like everything's in Christmas mode. That's why from November onwards it's like it's winter. TOMO says that not being able to visit theme parks recently may attribute to the fact that it's hard for them to tell what season it feels like. They also talk about packaging for products, such as limited edition ones for winter. HARU says it's like December onwards = winter, June-August = summer, September-October = autumn. They say it's kind of vague, though.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who asks the band what the fine line is between cool and cute, and if something can be both at the same time. HARU says it's also vague, and that both words are both compliments. TOMO says the meaning differs between each person, which the others agree with. She then asks the others if they think SCANDAL has any "cute" songs. They wonder if they do. RINA starts saying, "If it's starting from when we started 'her'...", but HARU goes ahead and says that she thinks "Kinenbi" is cute. The others agree. TOMO says that the rhythm's cute. HARU says that lyrics are cute (TOMO: "They're very cheerful"). RINA says that she thinks "Mabataki" is cute as well. TOMO says that there are also moments when you're listening closely to the music and will think it sounds cool, and asks what they think their "cool" songs are. TOMO says "Masterpiece." RINA says "Ceramic Blue." HARU says "Saishuuheiki, Kimi." RINA says "A.M.D.K.J." Both HARU and TOMO agree that "A.M.D.K.J." is cool. RINA wonders if you could also call it cute, which the others laugh at. TOMO says that the music video for "Saishuuheiki, Kimi" is an example of something that's both cute and cool. They say that it's difficult to say what the fine line is between the two. TOMO combines the words "kakkoii" (かっこいい; cool) and "kawaii" (かわいい; cute) in Japanese into "kakkokawaii." RINA says that there are clothes that are both cute and cool, and gives the example of lolita fashion . HARU says that it can be the opposite where a thing that someone thinks is cool may be considered cute by someone else. TOMO says that there are people in Germany who come to their shows dressed up all punkish and with mohawks that do look cute. MAMI says that there are people who dress coolly but their faces look all cute/dolled up. HARU says that in general the word "cute" is used for women, which the others agree with.

•RINA says that the word "cute" transcends its meaning; for example, you could even refer to a microphone as being "cute," or if they weather's nice, you could say that the sky looks "cute." HARU laughs and agrees. TOMO says that the sky can look cute at times. RINA says that the sky at 5 pm looks super-cute. TOMO says that the sky can also look cool. HARU says that times when you think something's nice, you'll just inadvertently end up saying it's "cute." TOMO says there's not much of a difference between the two words. MAMI says that there might be a difference when it comes to guys, though. RINA asks for an example, and MAMI says that there's probably a difference in calling a guy "cute" and calling a girl "cute." She then says, "Everyone's cute and cool!", which they all laugh at. RINA says that you consider a lot more things to be cute when you grow up, which they all agree with. She says that when you're a kid you think that things that are soft or have a soft vibe to them are cute, but when you grow up, the range of things you consider to be cute expands. An example would be considering the people who enjoy wearing punkish fashion to be cute, but everything in general is cute. She also says that SCANDAL's fans are the cutest in the world.

•TOMO says that it feels like you do use "cool" in its actual meaning. HARU says that people say their long-sleeve FEEDBACK shirts are cute but the actual print on them is cool. TOMO says that a lot of the time people who think something is nice will call it "cute." RINA says that it's usually used to refer to something that a person likes, and that it's a word that doesn't hurt/offend anyone. HARU says that there are people who might not like it if a friend called them "cute," though. TOMO says that there are definitely people who don't want to be called "cute." RINA is surprised at that since she thinks "cute" is such a complimentary word. A staffer seems to ask them if they prefer being called cute or cool. They say that either makes them happy. HARU says that "cute" has more of a charm to it. RINA says that a lot of people seem to call SCANDAL "cool" when they first become fans, but she wants them to first realize that they're cute. The others laugh at this. RINA says that people at first think they're sharp/prickly likely due to their music, but then realize via listening to "Catch up" and the like that they're pretty soft/gentle. HARU talks how on Twitter she saw recently saw her name mentioned in a convo that involved at least one person who wasn't a fan, and that someone said that their "favorite rascally female vocalist" is HARU. It made her go, "Rascally??" She says that it's probably from the impression of herself that she gave off previously. RINA says that it's probably due to their previous music. TOMO says that SCANDAL never really had that kind of era, though. They laugh, and RINA says that there probably was a time when she/the band came off as being more prickly. TOMO says that the word for "rascally" (やんちゃ; yancha) is cute, which the others laugh at and agree with. HARU says that it is cute but doesn't fit the impression she gives off now, but that being talked about now makes her wonder if she still gives off a "rascally" impression. TOMO again goes, "The word 'yancha' is so cute!", making them laugh again. MAMI says that it probably just means she gives off the image that she has a lot of freedom to do what she wants.

•They then close out the episode. They talk about BEST Xmas and TOMO says that it's their first one in two years, since their Christmas concert last year was the "SEASONS" one. They say they're looking forward to it.

Someone wants to be scolded by SCANDAL!? The band members give a pep talk to a listener's waivering feelings!

Episode #94 blog


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 PgLSXVu




HARUNA: Since it's almost Christmas, our recording location is also Christmas-themed.

All: Yayー! Thanks so much!

RINA: There's a tiny Santa...

Staff: That's not it!

HARUNA: Ah, um...let's see. A 3-meter Christmas tree, and balloons that director Kawai-chan blew up with all her might: A 4-meter snowman and a 5-meter Santa.

MAMI: The Santa that RINA-chan mentioned is two inches high...

RINA: Its head and body are a combined two inches. Adorable.

HARUNA: We'll be reading lots of messages amidst this Christmas mood.


O-Sushi-san

Good evening, SCANDAL.
I always enjoy listening to this radio program.

I've sent in this message because I want you guys to get mad at me.
I have a significant other that I live with.
It's been almost three years since I was told we should get married.

Also, I currently am having an affair with a co-worker.
It's not that I love them, though.
But since my SO and I are dating under the premise we'd get married, he keeps hounding me about marriage.
As long as I have accepted that, it's almost like an affair from his point of view.

My SO is a very nice person who works and also does housework, so I want him to be happy. I hope he meets someone good for him.
He also knows that I'm having an affair.
But I love him. I don't want to inconvenience him, but he wanted to be with me.

It's not that things aren't going well with him,
But no matter how tired I am, I will do the housework--our rhythms don't match. I can't really see a future with him.
We're together because he loves me, right? But he never says he loves me.
I want him to pat my head but he never tries to.

But cheating is bad.
If it was the other way around, I'd be very sad to be cheated on.
Please give me, whom he accepts despite me having an affair, a pep talk.


RINA: I see... They feel guilty and sent in this message.

TOMOMI: Are they saying that they don't yet love their partner?

MAMI: Isn't it that their feelings of guilt are beating the other feelings out?

HARUNA: But do they not like that?

MAMI: If they break up with the person they're currently dating, they might be able to fall in love with the other person...

TOMOMI: If they think there's no future with him, isn't it better to break up? Do they love him?

RINA: I think there are times when three years' worth of time comes with attachments, stability, is something you can't really separate from. In situations like that, I think that they may be under the illusion they might like the other person because they feel a thrill for this new person.

HARUNA: You're told to get married, so if you want to get married I feel like you can leave things as is.

MAMI: Isn't it better to face him now with this as an opportunity?


...they're quite heated up.
Love consultations and heavy content are also welcome. The four band members give serious thought together.

•The episode starts with this. MAMI suggests they talk things over and then reconsider things. TOMO says that maybe they could live apart for a bit, and if the listener misses their SO/realize they do love their SO, then they should stay together. If not, then they should go for the other guy or perhaps someone else entirely. She says they could rethink things in a more broader sense. RINA says that they could try figuring out what's most important to them and what would make them feel most satisfied. They discuss things a little more, but basically conclude that they should try talking with their SO more and figure out what their future will be like.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who says they got their first girlfriend this year. They are interested in both men and women, and although they've dated men before, this is their first time dating a woman and each day feels fresh and fun. However, it's a long-distance relationship--far enough that flying would be the only option to see each other--and they actually haven't met in person yet since they met on Twitter. But they do fall asleep talking to each other every day. They're planning to meet each other next year--they're both SCANDAL fans and hope to go to the band's upcoming tour together. They end their message by saying they love both SCANDAL and their girlfriend. The band goes, "That's so adorable!" They say there are a lot of things to look forward to. RINA mentions the long-distance thing, but if they're both in the same country then that's totally doable. TOMO says that it's possible they're in different countries. RINA says that it's a pain to travel right now, but if they really care about each other then distance shouldn't be too much of an issue. They say it's so cute that they fall asleep talking to each other every day, and that the band will put on a good concert for when they see them.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who got married this past October and had their ceremony in early December. They were unsure if they should hold the ceremony since there were no signs that COVID infections would be decreasing, but they were able to hold the ceremony safely and with a limited number of guests in attendance. They say that "eternal" played when their wive gave them a letter as a surprise, and they used "Chiisana Honoo" as their exit song. The band congratulates them and says they're happy that their songs were used. TOMO says that she attended a friend's wedding recently where they played "Taiyou to Kimi ga Egaku STORY" during the toasts. She demonstrates by saying they said "Cheers!" immediately followed by the intro to TaiKimi. She says that made her really happy. MAMI says that when her older brother got married, they used "Kinenbi" and "Yoake no Ryuuseigun." They say hearing all of these make them happy. RINA talks about the listener's message and jokes that it must have been really emotional during those times they played the songs. The others laugh and HARU mentions the "Make this moment last eternally" line. They say that they can tell how happy the listener is.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who is a teacher (SCANDAL: "Hey! Teacher!") and writes in about dialect onomatopeia related to "rock paper scissors" and how you singsong the chant when you're a kid in Akita Prefecture where they're from. I will not be translating this into English since it doesn't really translate well lol but the band all had different ways of saying it when they were kids. They do talk quite a lot about this and say at the end of it that they really love talking about things like this.

•They then close out the episode and decide to give Apollo Pouches to the second and third listeners to as Christmas presents.

This thing of a listener's got squished flat! Was this a premonition of dramatic happenings during the "Debriefing session of things that happened this year"!?

Episode #95 blog


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 BYj75Vk




HARUNA: Now then, this is 2021's last "Catch up" episode.

All: Ohー!

HARUNA: This is the last one, and we're recording it in a studio for the first time in forever...

RINA: We are.

HARUNA: It's been over a year and a half...

TOMOMI: Not since the very first episode...

RINA: Yeah...

HARUNA: ...right?

TOMOMI: We do come here for when we do live recordings of special programs, but aside from those... The last time really was the first episode...

RINA: So this is our second time recording it in the studio? And today's episode is #95?

HARUNA: That's right.

TOMOMI: We usually record it at our office.

RINA: Yeah.

HARUNA: True...

RINA: It feels kind of fresh.

HARUNA: I think it'll be relatively easy to hear our voices today.

RINA: Train sounds and the like won't be included in it.

MAMI: That's right!

TOMOMI: And director Kawai-chan is making her "mixing debut."

All: Congrats!

※Explanation: For radio directors, recording a program while giving instructions in front of the mixing board in the studio's control room is a sign that they're a fully-fledged director. This happened for this episode.


TOMOMI: Today, she'll be giving us instructions from the control room and playing songs.

HARUNA: She's all fluttery.

TOMOMI: She said she's excited.

RINA: So cute.

TOMOMI: She's all dressed up, too.

RINA: Right? She's so adorable.

MAMI: She really is.

RINA: I mean, it's the equivalent of a band's major debut day. It's quite a big thing.

HARUNA: It's wonderful.

TOMOMI: Let's take a photo later.

RINA: Yeah, we should.

HARUNA: This is a great way to wrap up 2021.

MAMI: It is.

HARUNA: So, we'll be doing this project at the end of 2021.
"A year-end party! A debriefing session of things that happened this year"
We'll be talking to listeners on the phone for the first time in a while.

TOMOMI: We're at the studio so that we can do the calls.

HARUNA: That's right. We've received many entries. They will be telling us via a phone call what happened for them this year. Although we'd love to call everyone who entered, due to time limits we will be calling three selected people.

Let's get right to it. First, we'll be talking to "Kapoko." from Fukushima Prefecture. Helloー?

Kapoko.: Hello! This is Kapoko!

RINA: Ah, it went through!

TOMOMI: Thank youー

Kapoko.: I always have fun listening to this program!

MAMI: Thank youー!

HARUNA: Let's get right to it. Please tell us what happened for you this year!

Kapoko.: Okay. My beloved light-blue car got squished flat...

All: Ehー!?

TOMOMI: Flattened??

RINA: What happened!?

TOMOMI: Did a meteorite fall on it??

RINA: What happened??

Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 APzTLD1
Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 Veuonms





•The episode starts with this. The listener says that it happened in a parking lot of a theme park, which surprises the band. She had had a good time at the park, but as she was going back to leave, she saw that her car was sandwiched together with the cars next to her. TOMO asks if there weren't any people hurt since it happened in a parking lot. The listener says that there weren't (TOMO: "So glad about that"). She says that her parents bought a car catalog and everything for her to choose a new car, but she loved her old one so much that she was unable to choose a new one. The band laughs hard at this. HARU says that the listener's love for that old car sure is something. The listener then says that she did end up buying the same model car in a different color. HARU asks what color she got. She says she got it in navy blue, which gives it more of a grown-up feel. TOMO asks how she got back from the theme park. She says that it was in the same area as where her parents live and so they came to pick her up. The band says that 2022 will probably be a good year for her, and she says that she already feels rewarded getting to talk to the band. MAMI wonders how the car got crushed and where; "From the side? From the top?" They laugh and RINA says that it being crushed from the top probably wasn't likely. The listener says that two cars were speeding and crashed into a few cars, which sandwiched her car between the ones next to her. TOMO gives a PSA and says when you're in a parking lot you should only go as fast as you're able to abruptly stop safely. The listener asks the band to be careful as well, which they thank her for.

•The listener then starts talking about a different topic and says that they had actually read a message of hers before on the program about how she became a fan of SCANDAL's because of her ex who really liked SCANDAL. She watched the 15th anniversary concert livestream and found the determination to contact her ex and settle things once and for all. Her ex told her that they had gotten married. It was really tough for her to hear everything, and she thought she wouldn't cry but she couldn't stop crying. However, hearing her message read on "Catch up" really helped her out, and SCANDAL's music has really cheered her up ever since the breakup. She's currently moving forward and says she's really grateful she gets to say her thanks to the band directly. The band is really touched by this and say this is making them tear up. RINA says that she seems like a lovely woman with the way she talks and thinks about others. HARU brings up how she says she started playing the guitar earlier in the year. The listener says there were so many bad things that happened this year for her that she wanted to try out something new and hopes to one day be able to play "Koe," one of her favorites. HARU says that her being positive is great. She says that she used to always borrow her ex's SCANDAL CDs, so MIRROR will be the first SCANDAL album that she purchases. She also says that 2021 being SCANDAL's 15th anniversary and this being their 10th album really makes her feel like this album will be special for both her and the band. HARU, in a hoarse voice, says that this is about to make her cry. TOMO jokes and says that they should just end the episode right now. HARU says that she wants to give her an Apollo Pouch, which the others say they should do. RINA says she's really happy that people like her listen to their music. TOMO says to come out to one of their concerts in her navy blue car. They thank her and end the call. MAMI says that they always read others' messages about stuff like saying thanks to the band or happy messages, but it's a lot more emotional when they hear it from the people themselves.

•They then contact the next listener. The listener says that they have two things: that they're soon going to be a Japanese language teacher, and that they're going to be obtaining a working holiday visa . TOMO asks where she's going, and she answers Vancouver, Canada. The band congratulates her and says she must have worked really hard. TOMO asks if being a "Japanese language teacher" is different from teachers teaching Japanese in Japan, and instead are teaching Japanese to foreigners. The listener says yes and the band says that that's cool. TOMO says it seems like it'd be difficult to do. RINA wonders from what point do you start to teach [foreigners] Japanese. They mention that Japanese has a lot of nuances and also things like sound effects and onomatopoeia, which they had previously talked about on the program before. They ask the listener if she'll be teaching things like that. She says that she'll actually be doing the opposite and will not be using words like that as they won't really be conveyed properly. HARU reads that the listener decided to become a Japanese teacher after learning that overseas fans of SCANDAL study Japanese and wanted to be of help in some way, which surprises the band. RINA asks when she started studying for this. She says October 2020; the band is surprised that she's been doing this for a year now. MAMI asks if she decided to do so because she already speaks a foreign language and wants to help people learn Japanese. She says that she can't really do so, but she does like K-Pop and really understands the want to understand foreign languages. She realized that overseas SCANDAL fans feel the same way, which made her start down this path. HARU reads that she's already going to head out in January. TOMO goes, "Is she...going to our...overseas tour?" HARU says that it says she is going and already has tickets to dates in Canada and the US. TOMO is surprised and goes, "Eh?? No way!" RINA asks if teachers are allowed to teach stuff aside from what's in textbooks, like stuff about music, for example. She says yes and that she wants to teach using SCANDAL's music as an example. RINA says that it might be difficult with their music because it's music that's filled with a lot of Japanese heart and soul. They say they'd love to take a lesson. The listener says that it's her goal to run into a SCANDAL fan overseas by coincidence. The band tells her to stay safe and do her best, and also to send in a message telling them what it's like for her overseas.

•Next, they call the last listener who says the top thing that happened to her this year is that she discovered SCANDAL. The band is really surprised and goes, "That's so cute!" She says that she watches and anime and did know of SCANDAL through their anime-related songs, but they only knew those songs and didn't know what the band's names were nor what they looked like. She says she grew up and starts mentioning that she was originally a fan of the rapper Rude-α (Rude Alpha). When she mentions his name, the band, whom are friends with Rude-α, get excited and go, "Rude-α!!" She says that two years ago she saw a picture of SCANDAL and Rude-α [most likely this one ] and went, "Oh, that's SCANDAL, and Rude's a fan of theirs!" Then, in April 2021, she was renting CDs and saw that they had a special if you rented 5 of them. She already had 4 picked out and was wondering what other CD she should get. It was then that she remembered that photo from two years ago and decided to rent a SCANDAL CD. Because they have so many releases she was unsure of which to go with, but she ended up going with BEST ALBUM "SCANDAL" (TOMO: "That rental system's amazing!"). She says that she thought their music was really cool and ended up renting all of their CDs as well as buying live DVDs, watching all their videos on YouTube, listening to all of the past "Catch up" episodes, and is now a SCANDAL MANIA PREMIUM member (the highest tier of their fan club). The band laughs and says that that's awesome.

•They thank her and say they're really happy to hear that. She says she also went to their joint-concert with Hump Back in June and "INVITATION" in August. They're really surprised that the listener turning into such a big fan happened in such a short amount of time. She also says that she won a signed sticker when she purchased eternal and then a signed t-shirt when she did the stamp rally at "INVITATION." The band is also surprised at this, considering how few of those they had signed. RINA asks her what song really hooked them in. She says that it was "Kagen no Tsuki" as she listened to their best-of album. RINA goes, "That's so chic!" TOMO says there probably aren't many people who like both Rude-α and KNT. She also wonders why the listener suddenly remembered SCANDAL at that time when renting the CDs; the listener also doesn't know why. TOMO says that it was fate. The listener also says that they're also attending BEST Xmas. The band laughs really hard and RINA says that her ability to get tickets is amazing; TOMO agrees, since BEST Xmas is their concert with the highest applicant-to-acceptance ratio (AKA the concert that gets the most ticket requests). A staffer also mentions her luck with this phone call as well. The listener says that she was really lucky when it came to SCANDAL this year. HARU says that they'll be touring next year and the listener says she hopes to get tickets to that as well. RINA laughs and says she thinks she will get them. The listener also mentions that MIRROR is coming out on her birthday. MAMI says that there's so much overlap when it comes to them and her. They tell her to send in more messages in the coming year. RINA says that their fans are awesome. TOMO says they're really interesting.

•They say this episode was fun and that talking to listeners on the phone makes them happy. HARU again says that this is the last episode of 2021 and asks how this year has been. She says that they recorded this show remotely, mainly in their office. RINA says that despite having to do the show in different forms, she's really glad that they were able to do continue to do this show. She also says that their fans are way too awesome and that they really support the band. HARU says they did a bunch of segments and received many messages from overseas fans, the latter of which inspired people like the second caller/listener during this episode. MAMI says that next spring will mark their second full year of doing this show. They all go, "So fast!"

•Finally, they close out the episode with a recording of them right after finishing their BEST Xmas concert on December 24th. They thank everyone and say it was a lot of fun. TOMO says that this might have been the most fun BEST Xmas they've ever had. They say this year they wrote an album, wrote new songs, played a lot of concerts--they really worked hard this year. TOMO says that this was the 10th BEST Xmas and that she saw people wearing shirts from the past BEST Xmas's over the years, which made her go, "This really is our 10th one, huh?" HARU says that they recognized a bunch of people there who came to the first one/have been coming out to see them for over 10 years, which made her realize that the band has been around for quite a while. HARU says that she wants to keep playing BEST Xmas's forever and the others agree. TOMO goes, "Let's only continue playing BEST Xmas's!" There's a pause before they laugh and MAMI goes, "That's it?!" They say they're looking forward to seeing everyone on tour in 2022.

A barrage of quotes? Odd remarks? Holding "SCANDAL Catch up Power Word Awards 2021"!

Episode #96 blog


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 WTAyqHw




HARUNA: Happy New Year, everyone!

TOMOMI: The year's begun.

RINA: The year's begun!

HARUNA: It has begunー! Please continue supporting "Catch up" as well as SCANDAL in 2022.
Now then, for the first "Catch up" episode of the new year, we'll be looking back on 2021 while talking about our 2022 resolutions and plans.

A new project!
"SCANDAL Catch up Power Word Awards 2021"!

TOMOMI: Power word...awards?

HARUNA: We had the listeners choose "power words"--remarks the band members have said that have stuck with you, emotionally-touching comments, etc.--among the episodes that came out in 2021. We will present them in an awards-show format! Thank you very much for the many entries!

RINA: I see.

HARUNA: We asked listeners to send them in!

RINA: You can see a red carpet since this is an awards show after all.

MAMI: The words are walking over.

RINA: Yeah, they are.

TOMOMI: The words are walking over!?

HARUNA: It feels like the players have entered the ring.

RINA: That's right.

MAMI: Yeah, the words will first be interviewed on the red carpet. It's being streamed around the world, after all.

HARUNA: Let's get right to it.

"SCANDAL Catch up Power Word Awards 2021"!
I am from the HARUNA department.
Listener Tomatoma entered this power word from episode #49 !
Please listen to these words HARUNA said at 18:54 while reading a message about a proposal:
"He'd better do it properly!"

MAMI: "You better do it properly"? Why did she say that?

HARUNA: Let's just listen to it.





→Let's all listen to episode #49.


HARUNA: I want to ask a little more about the boundary line when it comes to [marriage] proposals...

RINA: What?

HARUNA: Can you call it a proposal when a conversation like that comes up, or is it when you officially get an engagement ring?

TOMOMI: I wonder...

MAMI: If that's the case, then just wanting to talk about marriage means that it's not an official proposal yet.

RINA: It's not yet. It's like a provisional proposal, like the boyfriend is suggesting he'll propose later.

MAMI: It basically means that he will propose at some point.

TOMOMI: He's confirming that he will do it at some point.

RINA: Yeah.

HARUNA: He'd better do it properly.

TOMOMI: ...did something happen??


→Going back to the studio.





MAMI: Ahー! So that's what it was.

RINA: That did happen.

TOMOMI: It did. It was in regards to a provisional proposal from a boyfriend and wonder what'll happen with that. On the other hand, HARUNA suddenly "You better do it properly" started pressing on him with that.

MAMI: Yeah.

RINA: ...but we sounded like we were having so much fun!

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 96


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 PEJWKls
Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 1kfRaQ4





•The episode starts with this. Also, you can hear a better version of new song "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" during the episode here (from 1:39).

•The next one suggested is from the 20:28 mark of episode #54 , related to something MAMI said about agebitashi and that she says something about putting eggplant the broth? lol not entirely sure. The clip is only a few seconds long, which makes the band laugh at how short it is (RINA: "It's so short and it's funny!"). TOMO laughs and says that the way she said something in it feels gross to her now. HARU wonders why they were talking in that kind of way and sounding excited. TOMO says that she remembers that a staffer didn't know what the subject was about (yakibidashi/agebitashi) and therefore she started talking about it, but she's like, "Why did I say it in that way??" MAMI says that she still feels the same: that agebitashi is the most delicious, and that she still wants to try adding eggplant to it.

•The next one suggested is from the 20:50 mark of episode #55 , related to something that TOMO said. That episode was in commemoration of the one year anniversary of "Catch up" and the band was trying to play ocarinas for new program jingles (they did 3 in total). The clip is of them playing one of the finished jingle. As it plays, the band starts laughing and saying, "This is so scary!" They also say that HARU's voice suddenly coming on to say "SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo" was also scary. TOMO says that she's glad this is an online show; if it was on the actual radio, it would probably scare listeners who have just decided to tune in. HARU asks the others if they still remember how to play the jingle they made. The jingle is played and they again go, "That's so scary!" MAMI says that they have no idea if what they're playing is good or not. The second jingle is played and they crack up while again say it's scary. MAMI says that it sounds like music for when a ghost appears. The third one is played as they crack up again and say that this one is really fast-paced. RINA says that she wants to do a new jingle this year. HARU asks she means she wants to do a properly-done one. RINA says that she wants to do one that would be easier on the ears of new listeners.

•The second-to-last one suggested is from episode #44, related to something that RINA said during this first episode of 2021. HARU says that they got a lot of entries for this one. The clip features the band introducing themselves normally aside from RINA, who says, "Drummer RINA-chan! Hey! Why does my program script say this?? This is so embarrassing, having this happening in the beginning [of the year]!" They're surprised that this episode was about finding "basic mistakes," and this happened a year ago already. HARU says that they all like things like that. RINA jokes and says that everyone likes doing things that relate to pranking her. She also thanks everyone for sending in a lot of entries for this one. HARU says that that must mean that everyone was really focused on finding stuff for this segment.

•The last one suggested is from the 11:05 mark of episode #61 , related to something RINA said about the fine line between having a lot of hobbies/interests vs. being fickle, and says that fickleness can be wonderful. RINA says that she does clearly remember saying that. HARU then reads a message from the person from episode #61 that RINA said had a wonderful kind of fickleness. They say they were able to pass an employment exam and thinks that what RINA said was a message from the gods. The band congratulates the listener on becoming employed.

•The band then talks about their plans for "Catch up" for 2022. They say they'll first be starting off with their new album MIRROR that comes out on Jan. 26th, and then will be starting their world tour in March. HARU says they're glad that they're starting to look forward to touring again. RINA says that it feels like little by little they can start doing again things they used to do. She also says that because they weren't able to tour when it was first scheduled, they feel more strongly about conveying all the things that they need to whenever they're able to see their fans. That's also why they consider that time when they weren't able to do activities like touring to be important to them. She thinks that this truly will be a great tour. TOMO says that when this upcoming tour was announced, they really could tell that the fans had been waiting so long for this. She too thinks that this will be a good tour and that they're really looking forward to it. HARU says that like the album itself, there are songs on it that they were able to make by stopping for a while and stopping themselves, which led to new ideas. She says she's really looking forward to being able to tour around the world after having that time frame when time had stopped for them and is now a part of who they are. She also wonders what they'll be like standing in front of everyone in so long, and hopes that fans can come out and see the new side of SCANDAL. TOMO says that she wants to do more on-location recordings for "Catch up" (like this episode where they played Mölkky). They mention the listeners who have written to the program before who own apple orchards or even mountains. HARU says that they hope to go out to places mentioned by listeners and record episodes there. She also hopes that their fans listen plenty to their new album and come out to see a concert of theirs.

•They then close out the episode. HARU says that she's sure many new things will come about on the program thanks to listeners' messages. She also says that perhaps those who attend their concerts overseas will send in messages with their thoughts on the ones they've attended. TOMO says that the band should get souvenirs from overseas and then send them to listeners as presents. The others say that's a great idea and that they should do that. They also say that maybe they can record the program while they're overseas. They say they're excited for everything's that to come. And at the end, RINA calls herself "RINA-chan" again while the others laugh.

MAMI takes a step forward with punch perms!?

Episode #97 blog


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 NfhtNRS




HARUNA: We'll be reading messages this week.


Biwasshiー

Good evening, SCANDAL. Have you tried Melty Kiss's new Tahitian vanilla flavor? I'm eating right now and it's insanely delicious. When I gave it to my wife, she seemed to like it very much and was happy to eat it, saying "It's so delicious!"

Suddenly, my wife got all weird and went, "This charred garlic (kogashi niniku) flavor is the best!" I corrected her, saying, "Tahitian vanilla (tahichi banira) flavor." She said she didn't realize she made a mistake and was surprised by herself, saying, "I said 'charred garlic'!?"

I think the reason for the mistake was that she was preparing dinner while eating Melty Kiss. The Tahitian vanilla flavor is so delicious that it derails peoples' trains of thought.

The vanilla scent is very distinct and it does taste of vanilla, so I'm kind of worried if it's okay for Meiji to use this vanilla at this price point.

At any rate, it's insanely delicious. SCANDAL, do you have some? If not, please buy some after this recording's done.


TOMOMI: That's such a warm and fluffy story.

RINA: And we're eating it right now!

MAMI: It's really good!

TOMOMI: The packaging's cute, too!

MAMI: I've already eaten half of mine...

RINA: We're just gobbing it down.

TOMOMI: Tahitian vanilla is said to be the most strongly flavored kind of vanilla.

RINA: Yeah...

HARUNA: Anyway! You guys should try it as well!
We'll be giving an Apollo pick and a program sticker to Biwasshiー.

TOMOMI: Yeah, let's do that.

HARUNA: Let's give lots of presents this year.

MAMI: Here's the next message...


Poporo
RN.ポポロ

Good evening to SCANDAL and the staff. I always enjoy listening to this program.

I listened to episodes 90-92 yesterday. This is the listener whose message about punch perms was read in 91. I'm sending this message since you were worried if this style would damage your hair.

Punch perms damage your hair!!! Since your hair is treated at a high temperature with a chemical solution, it may cause protein denaturation and make the hair stiff, coarse, or brittle. (Protein denaturation turns egg whites transparent to white and hardens them)

We pre-treat and post-treat the hair to prevent as much damage as possible. As such, your hair won't get worn out if it's permed once. However, you need to be careful when it comes to hair that's already been damaged by coloring it.

So, if MAMI decides to get a punch perm, I think it would be perfect if she gets it done only on the lower half of her head (like an undercut) and hide it with hair from the top part of her head. If she likes, it, try getting it done in the back as well! haha. (Or, you could get your hair rolled like a Daibutsu without using chemicals)

Even if MAMI does get a punch perm, I'll still love SCANDAL and will continue to be a fan!! haha

I'm looking forward to the new album.


MAMI: ...get a punch perm underneath only, huh.

RINA: It'll probably just make MAMI look stylish...

MAMI: Wait, wait, wait - Can you picture it??

HARUNA: Actually, are there any hairstyles that wouldn't suit MAMI?

MAMI: Yeah, so, picture it!!

TOMOMI: Yeah, I think it'd be insane...

MAMI: Right??

TOMOMI: I think it would be... But I think it'd be nice. Anything suits her.

HARUNA: I think you should do it if you want to.

MAMI: Would it be okay?

TOMOMI: Don't you think it'd be insane??

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 97


Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 OlOvuup
Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 19 BYlI7vi





•The episode starts with this. TOMO says that MAMI could try doing a punch perm once and she might end up liking it. RINA says that an undercut would suit MAMI. MAMI says she's still unsure. RINA says to just keep thinking it over, and the staff and other band members chuckle at this.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who says that they and their husband are elementary school teachers (SCANDAL: "Hey! Teacher!"). They say that they want to talk about what happened for them in 2021 (it was originally sent in for this segment), and for them that was getting married on Aug. 22nd, the day after SCANDAL's "INVITATION" concert. They say it was originally scheduled for March but had to be postponed due to the state of emergency. Things got worse and worse as August got closer and so they and their families were unsure whether or not to hold it. They did end up doing so, though, after deciding to take plenty of preventative measures. They say they played SCANDAL's songs "Uchiagehanabi" and "LOVE ME DO" during their reception and that they're happy they got to use their songs. The band congratulates them and TOMO says that it really makes them happy when fans use their songs at weddings. She then says that a phone number is listed and asks the others if they want to try calling them. RINA enthuastically says they should to congratulate them. They decide to call, even though they're not sure whether or not the listener will pick up. TOMO says that they might not pick up a call from an unknown number. MAMI laughs and says that also wouldn't pick up. They do try calling the listener. It rings a few times before playing a "This number is not available right now" message and automatically hanging up. MAMI says that it is Thursday at 3 pm when this recording is happening, after all. They again congratulate the listener and TOMO goes, "We just tried calling you! Sorry we couldn't reach you!"

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who is also writing in for the same segment. She says that 2021 was a year where everything changed for her, such as moving to a new area where she didn't have any friends, but she was grateful that her message was read during the live broadcast to celebrate the release of eternal. She says that she also has another thing to report: On Aug. 10th, HARU's birthday, she found out that she was pregnant and that the baby is due some time in spring 2022. She says that it's looking like her life is going to change yet again next year. She says that a dream of hers is to attend concerts with her kids and so is having the baby listen to SCANDAL songs while it's in the womb. She doesn't know what the baby's name will be yet but is hoping to get a hint from SCANDAL's songs, including ones on the new album. She says she doesn't know the baby's gender as of the time she's writing the message, but if the band calls her and she knows by then what the gender will be, then she will tell them. The band congratulates her and decides to call her. She also does not pick up, but the band leaves her a voicemail congratulating her and saying to send in another message when she knows the gender of the baby.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who is also writing in for the same segment. He says that he turned 26 last year and, like his girlfriend, didn't have any dreams and was worried about the future, including their jobs. He then starting having a sort of vague dream about making things and began liking candles in particular recently. He wants to try making them and is current looking for candlemaking classes. He's always like to make things and so wants to make and sell candles one day, or convey the charm of candles in some day. Although it first started out as a hobby, he's happy that his dream is currently growing. The band decides to call him but it also plays a "This number is not available right now" message and automatically cuts off. They again mention how trying to call people at 3 pm on a Thursday afternoon is too difficult to do as it's after peoples' lunch breaks and are currently in the middle of working. TOMO says that she's tried candlemaking a bunch of times and that it's a lot of fun. RINA says that the candles she made are really cute and are good enough to sell. The band says that they'd love for TOMO to make them some candles if she decides to make some in the future. TOMO says she totally will and still has a bunch of ingredients to make them, which the band says they're happy about. HARU says that it's nice when you can turn your hobbies into a job. RINA says that it's pretty easy right now to advertise your stuff online such as on social media.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who is also writing in for the same segment. They're an engineer and passed several exams that they were striving for last year. Several times while studying they felt like giving up, but listening to SCANDAL's songs helped them out and get through it. When they'd feel down, they'd listen to "Image." When they needed to get fired up, they'd listen to "FREEDOM FIGHTERS," etc., etc. They also mention that they found out about SCANDAL was via RINA's solo exhibition. They were really impressed with how RINA views the world and then got really hooked on SCANDAL. They also say that they were crying as they watched "INVITATION." RINA thanks her and says that it makes her really happy to hear, and also that the listener became such a big fan that they even listen to this program. The band is surprised that the listener found out about them only in July and then watched "INVITATION" in August, and even knows older songs like "Image." And not to mention that they were studying for exams as well (HARU: "That's impressive"). MAMI says that it's impressive how people who start liking SCANDAL end up delving into the band's history like this. They laugh and HARU says that they do have over 10 years worth of history after all. TOMO says that there still manages to be new and different ways people find out about SCANDAL. They all laugh and say it's true; HARU says that people don't necessarily find out about them via their music. MAMI jokes and says that they've been growing at the rate of about 1 cm these past 15 years.

•TOMO reads the last message from a listener who is also writing in for the same segment. Their message had previously been read in episode 81 (the one at the very end). They say they felt encouraged by that and kept practicing on the bass little by little. Last fall, they decided to form a band and play at their college's school festival. They felt really moved when they played loudly at a studio the band rented out. A month before their performance, however, the festival was changed to an online streaming event because the situation with COVID didn't allow it and they had to record their performance for the stream. It was a pity the festival was changed to an online one, but they say they had a lot of fun playing with their band members and their goal is to play in front of an audience in person someday. They say they feel that their bass playing improved during the pandemic and that they'll continue to play bass at their own pace this year. TOMO says that she's glad that they were still able to at least technically perform in front of an audience. HARU says that it must have been a good experience to be able to record for that. TOMO says that there's a different kind of nervousness that you feel compared to when you're playing in front of a live audience, which the others agree with. HARU says that there's likely a small number of college students who have gotten to experience that. RINA says for them to keep playing and preparing to play in front of a live audience someday.

•The band then closes out the episode. The band says that they unfortunately weren't able to talk to any listeners on the phone this time, though they were able to leave a voicemail for one of them. RINA says that that listener's sure to be surprised when she hears it. MAMI wonders if you need to set up the voicemail function in order for it to work. RINA says that people probably don't usually leave voicemails in general anyway, even if that function's set up on someone's phone. MAMI says that even if someone can't reach someone by phone, they could reach them other ways such as messaging apps. TOMO says that listeners should register Tokyo FM's phone number just in case. The others laugh and HARU says that they should register the number when they send in a message. They say that they will call more listeners in the future and that they're hooked on doing episodes where they do so. HARU says that they do need to be in an official radio recording room in order to do so [as opposed to their office where they've recorded a majority of their past episodes]. RINA says that they should increase their studio visits this year. TOMO goes, "This really should always be done in a studio!", while the others and the staff laugh. RINA jokes that their goal for this year is to come more frequently to record in the studio.

HARUNA: "Catch up" has been released in 2022, but this is our first time recording it this year. So, again, Happy New Year!

All: Happy New Year!

HARUNA: Best regards this year as well!

All: Best regards!

TOMOMI: This is our first job of the year!

HARUNA: That it is. It's our first job of the year and we're already bursting into conversation...

RINA: But it might good for "Catch up."

HARUNA: That's true.

RINA: ...it's because we can start off leisurely.

HARUNA: Yeah.

MAMI: In a good way!

All: Yep.

HARUNA: Now then, let's eat some snacks while we start off leisurely.
We'll be reading a bunch of messages this week as well.


Kurukuru Hitsuji

Hello, SCANDAL! Good work on your first Christmas concert in two years.

From the start the setlist made me feel that you guys were hating on your fans, who weren't able to vocalize, and I was desperate to avoid vocalizing (haha)

Today, I'm writing in about the line "SCANDAL is an odd band" that HARUNA said during the concert.

I was sitting in a middle seat, and to my left was a white-haired older man, while on my right there was a young girl who looked to be elementary school-aged (who came with her dad). Once the show began, we, of all different ages and genders, put our arms up and had fun in the same way. I did think that SCANDAL certainly is an odd band, but at the same time it hit me that SCANDAL's music is enjoyed by people of all ages. Thank you for the amazing Christmas concert. I'll definitely go next year, too!


RINA: What a happy message.

HARUNA: We got a lot of messages about our Christmas concert "BesuKuri" [Japanese abbreviation for "BEST Xmas].

RINA: Thanks!

TOMOMI: But BesuKuri really was funー

RINA: It wasー

HARUNA: It was our first "BesuKuri" in two years.

RINA: As written in that message, SCANDAL certainly might be a band with a wide range of fans or live audiences.

HARUNA: That's always been the case.

RINA: That's true.

TOMOMI: There's also been a big increase in people coming with their families.

MAMI: There has.

HARUNA: Isn't that something to be proud of, that this is something that families across generations can enjoy?

RINA: That's so true. It makes us happy.

HARUNA: It's a happy thing that people of different generations can have fun in the same way at live music clubs or halls.

RINA: We are happyー

MAMI: Does that go beyond happy??
