『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 46


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN TtEj0xY
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN WhYgDRy





•The episode starts with this.

•MAMI reads the next topic from a listener: shuuji (習字) and shodou (書道) [this page explains it in English ]. TOMO says she isn't sure but thinks that "shuuji" is when you look at an example and carefully write it exactly as it is, while "shodou" is painting with the brush however you'd like to. The others agree with her. HARU says that she thinks that they were taught shuuji in school, which the others agree with too. The staff interjects and tells them that what TOMO said is correct. The others clap and RINA goes, "As expected." They say that this was a good topic.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who suggest the topic of "anshin" (安心; relief, peace of mind) and "shinrai" (信頼; faith, trust), which they got from the book they're reading now that discusses the difference between the two. After thinking about it, they've concluded that "anshin" is when you feel relieved/have peace of mind just by being near someone [dear to you], and "shinrai" is when you leave something up to another person, you're trusting that they will do it for you. They say that they feel peace of mind ("anshin") every day because of SCANDAL's music and that they have faith ("shinrai") that they'll send them an Apollo pouch. The band laughs and TOMO says that she wants to give them 10 pouches (MAMI: "They don't need 10 pouches!"). After contemplating the topic for a few seconds, HARU says that it's probably what the listener mentioned, which is true. MAMI says that she doesn't think there needs to be a line drawn between the two. RINA agrees and feels that they more or less go together: You have faith in someone, so that's why you can have peace of mind. The band agrees to give them a pouch (TOMO: "Even if they didn't mention it, we would have given it").

•As the final part of the "meeting," they decide on the next topic for consideration by picking a card. The one TOMO draws is: tastefully done paintings and badly done paintings. The band thinks this will be an interesting one. HARU thinks it's a topic with one of those paper-thin differences, which TOMO says they've basically been doing all along. The others laugh and agree. MAMI says that there are basically no "badly done" paintings as there will probably always be someone who will be willing to pay for any painting. RINA says that it's kind of like testing out who is interested in something; she says, for example, she's bad at painting, but there probably would be fans who would think it's nice and make it into their profile picture. TOMO says it's also about whether or not something captivates you. RINA is reminded by the staff and she mentions that she bought some acrylic paints during their time off and painted something. She said that people said positive things about it, such as that it looks very RINA-like, but there were also negative things said about it, such as that it's sloppy. Then TOMO starts talking about a book she's reading about how Japanese arrived in Japan and how humans haven't changed in 38,000 years. I will not be summarizing this part, however, because it's too long lol

•As they close out the episode, they talk about how everything they were "saving up" during their break was released all at once today. They agree that the listeners' topics were good ones.



The third Fine Line Association! Can you eat oden or okonomiyaki with rice?

Episode #46 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN XD3bOdK




HARUNA: Two episodes have aired since the year started, but this is our first time actually recording an episode this year. Moreover, as our work this year is starting off with Catch up,
We're looking forward to your continued support. Let's have fun. So, this week is the Fine Line Association.

RINA: Yay!

TOMOMI: I'm happy.

HARUNA: RINA and TOMOMI's favorite Fine Line Association. By the way, if you put it in English, it'd be:
"Association of Borderline on Catch up," which is "ABC" for short [Note: A bit Engrishy, but I guess it's fine since the staff apparently wanted the ABC acronym lol. I'm still going to refer to it as the "Fine Line Association"].

All: Ohー!

RINA: It turned out nicely.

TOMOMI: That's so unusual. Good job!

HARUNA: Listeners continue to send in their opinions to ABC. This will be the third regular meeting.


→The fine line between kissaten and cafes


Tacchiー!

At kissaten, the owner is wiping down plates forever!
At cafes, they have fun with their name tags!



MAMI: I kind of get the atmosphere they're going for...

TOMOMI: I guess there are places like that... That's what it feels like.

RINA: I get the whole "owner is always wiping down plates at kissaten shown in drama or anime series." But have you ever seen that in real life? An owner wiping down plates the whole time?

HARUNA: That means that they're not actually working.

TOMOMI: Maybe they have some free time...

MAMI: Maybe the kissaten they frequent have unique cups and saucers, and that they wash the dishes right after a customer leaves, so that's why they're wiping them all the time.


→Bringing up a new item on the agenda


Yuichanpon

I love the Fine Line Association - it's so interesting and sometimes silly!

It's been cold days these days, so I have a theme that I came up with when I ate oden because I craved it.
When I was working in a nursery school, oden would be given for lunch.
On oden day they would have "furikake over rice," maybe because oden doesn't go well over rice.
However, I thought that some people might eat rice without eating oden.
It's the same kind of topic of whether you should eat okonomiyaki with rice on the side or not.

This might be a matter of personal taste,
But SCANDAL, by all means,
Please draw the line on what's a side dish or not!
Also, do the members eat oden or okonomiyaki with rice as a side dish?



RINA: Can you eat rice with okonomiyaki?

MAMI: You can.

HARUNA: You can, but I don't think anyone does.

RINA: I'd totally eat rice. It feels strange if you don't eat it.

MAMI: We wouldn't eat rice with it when I lived at home. But after getting to know everyone and knowing that there is a culture of eating it with rice, I actually started liking it.

RINA: It's normal for people from the Kansai area too.

TOMOMI: Yeah.

MAMI: Even with takoyaki ?

RINA: Totally. If you put sauce on it, you can totally do it.

MAMI: You may be right.

RINA: What about oden?

MAMI: For oden, I totally think so.

TOMOMI: Same.

HARUNA: I don't know if I could eat rice with that.

TOMOMI: I know that feeling too, but if there is rice, I will eat it.

RINA: If you add rice to the last bits of oden broth, it kind of turns into ochazuke ...

MAMI: I really like to put oden tofu on top of rice, mix it with broth, and eat it.

RINA: I really like that.

TOMOMI: It's delicious.

HARUNA: I see. It could fill you up.

TOMOMI: I want to be filled upー

RINA: Same!

HARUNA: I don't want to fill my stomach with rice...

RINA: I want to be stuffed with rice.

MAMI: I totally get that.

TOMOMI: I want to get rid of all the empty space in my stomach.

RINA: I want to fill it up! I want to eat until I can eat no more!

•The episode starts with this.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who is attending a vocational school specializing in music, broadcasting, and film at which they are a film major. Every year the school puts on an event where each major works together to put on one performance. They usually hold it at the Zepp Sapporo venue in front of an audience, but this year's event had to turn into a livestream event due to COVID. The listener was in charge of doing video switching and felt a lot of pressure when they heard it was going to be a livestream. There were some bad days and days when things didn't go right leading up to the event, but listening to SCANDAL's music made them feel more at ease. They said that they all studied camera work by watching live videos, and they, of course, watched live SCANDAL videos. Although there were some mistakes during the stream, they had a very good experience at the end of their student life. They also say that they'd love to shoot SCANDAL live in the future. The band thanks the listener and notes that they're working really hard. HARU mentions that this was yet another event that had to be turned into a livestream. RINA says that SCANDAL's team that films them are really amazing, so she thinks that studying their videos will be very helpful.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who went to the SEASONS concert and says it was so exciting to absorb music with their whole body at a concert for the first time in forever. They say that they can't keep depending on their parents and works a job to help support small things, which is tough for them and which they will continue to be busy with, but they thank the band for charging them up and say that they're looking forward to the fan club tour in the spring. The band reiterates that they're holding that tour in the spring.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who also went to SEASONS. Due "Departure" being played and the video played, it reminded them of their graduate school graduation ceremony that couldn't happen due to COVID and thank them for the best entertainment. They say that the band's shadows reflecting on the backdrop, especially RINA's as she was playing the drums, was so cool, and ask if that was intentional. RINA says that a lot of people have told them about the shadow thing, and that she didn't know that was happening, but it's probable that their team thought about that and shone the light on them to have the shadows on the backdrop.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who also went to SEASONS, which their first time seeing SCANDAL live. When "HARUKAZE," one of their favorite songs, was played, they got teary-eyed. They say they're sure that the band was really worried about holding the concert considering everything going on, but they say it was the best Christmas present and thank them for it. The band thanks them for the message.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who also went to SEASONS and say that they were really worried at first, but when it started, they were so happy that they cried. They say that seeing the band playing happily made them happy, and they had so much fun that they almost couldn't have cared less about everything that's happened. They say it might be difficult for them to go to a concert again due to them getting a job at a restaurant, but they're looking forward to when the band's able to play concerts again where everyone can get loud. They also say they'd like an Apollo pouch if possible. The band says that it's cute the way they asked for the pouch and say that they'll give one to them (RINA: "We're giving out a lot of them today"), especially since they're starting a new chapter in their lives.

•HARU asks the band what they thought of their concert. TOMO says that having fans in front of them made her realize how happy it makes her, and that even though everyone was wearing a mask and the band couldn't see their facial expressions, a lot of things were still conveyed. It was very touching for her. HARU says that they were pretty emotional even during rehearsals. RINA says that sitting on her drum chair made her realize that they were playing in front of an audience again, which made it feel like she was brought back to life. MAMI talks about their KFTD livestream and that there were only empty seats in front of them in the hall they were playing at, so at this concert the presence of the audience was directly conveyed to them. She really felt the difference between the two and felt happy they had a live audience. HARU says they might have been able to see everyone's faces more calmly than usual as they and the audience are usually making a lot of noise and everything. She mentions that they can make eye contact with the audience during ballads but can't really take that same approach with other songs, which is something they experienced for the first time. TOMO says that it has do with the selection of songs too. Everyone was listening intently while watching the screen too. RINA says that because they'll all be in their 30s as of this year, they like this kind of style of playing concerts. She also mentions the NAKED team and how they praised the band afterwards, and that all of them would love to work together again. HARU says that this concert was all thanks various coincidences and possibilties overlapping with each other. TOMO says that the warm applause they received when they first went on stage made her the most emotional. They then mention their upcoming fan club tour and their anniversary concert in August and hope that they get to see a lot of people.



Music Natalie - TOMOMI's Favorite Perfume - Fri Jan 15, 2021 12:45 am

My Favorite Beauty Item, Vol.5 - TOMOMI (SCANDAL)

A perfume with a lovely, one-of-a-kind fragrance

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN H59okqG




Music Natalie's "My Favorite Beauty Item" series asks artists about their favorite beauty items. This column series introduces makeup items, skincare items, and fragrances that the artists love, with illustrations drawn by illustrator Yuka Nishiizumi based on the photos and texts provided by the artists themselves. The fifth edition features TOMOMI from SCANDAL. She has told us about her favorite perfume that she recommends to those who value originality.




What is TOMOMI's favorite beauty item?
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN H59okqG

Genre: Perfume
Brand: Le Labo
Item Name: Another 13



How did you come across this item?
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN PfFg6zs

Originally, a friend had worn a perfume by Le Labo, and since I liked that scent so much they introduced me to the store.
After trying out a lot of things, I found that the sharp, urban scent of "Another" series sat well with me, and I've been using it ever since.



Who do you recommend it to?
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN WZ8fCn7

Le Labo's perfumes have a unique and wonderful scent that doesn't resemble anything else—it's so impressive that you'll never forget it once you smell it, so I recommend it to those who value originality.



Commitment to beauty

Finding something that suits me.
It's like that for perfume, as well as picking out skincare or cosmetics. It's more important to me than following the fads.



Items she's currently curious about

Foundation from V3. I don't normally wear foundation, but I really like that V3's foundation has very small needles in them that help rejuvenate the skin.
I felt that not applying cosmetics as much as possible would be kinder to my skin, but on the other hand it's interesting that there are so many items that can make you look refined.

Reading messages about impressions of the "SEASONS" concert held at the end of last year! Lavishly giving away Apollo pouches in place of New Year's presents!

Episode #45 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN N4Rphng




HARUNA: This week, we will be reading messages about impressions people sent about "SEASONS," SCANDAL's first and last solo concert of 2020 with a live audience.
...We will proceed while trusting our staff.

All: Understood.

HARUNA: We still don't really trust them...

RINA: We're recording two episodes in a row, and for the last one there was the "Basic Mistake Championship"...

HARUNA: So let's read some messages.

Ma〜kun (35 years old)

Good work with the "『SEASONS』collaborated with NAKED" concert the other day!
I was thrilled to see the SCANDAL members in person for the first time in a year! Though there were 12 songs, I wanted to hear more SCANDAL songs.
The clarity of the images of the four seasons was also the best!
I was thrilled to receive Apollo chocolate at the exit afterwards!

I remember coming across Apollo when I was in kindergarten when it was served to me as a snack at my friend's house. It resembled the shape of Mt. Fuji and tasted like strawberries. I still like Apollo the most among sweets, and now that I've grown up, I especially love "Apollo my style."
Now, even my 4-year-old niece loves Apollo! We enjoyed the Apollo I received together! Thank you for a nice Christmas gift!

Delving more into my "Kinenbi" that I talked about before, I decided to leave the photo studio due to the downturn of the company. I talked about being unemployed, but I finally got a job! It's a construction-related job where I don't know right or left! I will do my best in photography as a hobby.

Being an Apollo lover, I would appreciate it if I could be gifted an Apollo pouch to celebrate my finding a job. I will also attend the MANIA TOUR 2021 next year!

I also want to see the members soon!



TOMOMI: They want an Apollo pouch after talking about their memories about Apollo...

HARUNA: They did find a job.

RINA: That's right. As a gift...

MAMI: Yeah, let's gift it to them! Congrats!

Nonbiri Necklace to Kiiro Down

SCANDAL, Happy New Year.
Thank you for the wonderful Christmas Eve at the end of last year.
If I were to write down my impressions, it would not fit into one program,
So I just want to say that TEAM SCANDAL and NAKED, inc., you guys are the best!

Since we were notified before the concert started that we'd be given a present when we entered, I was happy when I got it,
But I didn't think that we'd also be given a present when we left (and from Meiji Apollo, too...!).

Before the performance, I received the present at the time of admission because I had been notified in advance, but after the performance, when I returned (and from Meiji Apollo ...!)
I was so happy that the next day I bought all kinds of Apollo at a nearby store.
There are so many types out now!
Coupled with the memories of SEASONS, Apollo has become a sweet that makes me feel emotionl. My addiction to Apollo has begun.

...so I would like to ask SCANDAL.
I would like to take a commemorative photo of the Apollo pouch with these different kinds of Apollo, so why not give me an Apollo pouch as a New Year's present?

I always feel happy because of RINA and I feel bad for begging, so I'll send even more messages this year [than I did last year]. I'd really appreciate it.



RINA: They've all sent in a bunch of messages. And they're being very considerate when asking for them...

MAMI: Yeah, it feels like they're closing in little by little.

HARUNA: Let's give it to them. It's a new year, after all!

Takemaru

Good evening, SCANDAL.
I had a lot of thoughts in my head going to "SEASONS," but I'm glad I was able to go! It was a wonderful night.
I'm from Niigata, so when I thought, "Oh, I would have seen you guys on tour in April," I almost cried at the cherry blossoms in full bloom.
I finally cried when you took me along to see a fireworks display, which I couldn't go this year.
Those of us who were watching in the back also got a Christmas present with the acoustic song on the substage!
I usually only watch you guys performing happily on stage, but this time I was fascinated by the production and my time was split 50/50 between watching the two.
I thought, "The members can't see this happening in real time. Poor things."
It was a really nice night. Thank you very much!
I was happy to be given Apollo! As expected of Meiji!
Please give me an Apollo pouch! I beg of you!
An Apollo pouch, please!



MAMI: They're pressing us hard.

RINA: They're very straight-forward.

TOMOMI: What a sharp curve at the end.

RINA: Should we give it to them?

MAMI: Yeah!

HARUNA: Let's treat them!

Goriki Jizou

I went to the concert on 12/24
Thanks so much
My seat wasn't very good
So from a distance, MAMI looked like Emma from The Promised Neverland
That was the message I wanted to convey
A ticket to the MANIA tour might be hard for me to get, but I'd like to go to the Osaka-Jo Hall concert if I can get a ticket
Thanks to SCANDAL, I can do my best amidst everything going on!
Thanks so much!

P.S.
If you input "Mamitasu" (マミタス) into the Simeji keyboard, it predicts it as "mmts"
And if you put in "Timo" (てぃも), it suggests "TOMOMI"
And for "Rinariー" (りなりー), it suggests "RINA"
So, how can we get "HARUNA" to appear?



MAMI: Just put it in like that.

All: That's awesomeー

All: What is Simeji?

MAMI: It's an app called Simeji that allows you to change the background of your smartphone keyboard.

RINA: It's like changing a wallpaper.

All: ......

RINA: If you change your keyboard to that app and enter a name, the predictive text shows you related names even by just putting in nicknames.

MAMI: That's awesome.

HARUNA: I wonder why I don't appear...

RINA: I wonder. Maybe it knows that she doesn't have a nickname, but wouldn't "Haruna" [in katakana: ハルナ] come up as "HARUNA"?

TOMOMI: Maybe if you input "Haruna" in hiragana (はるな), "HARUNA" will appear in English.

HARUNA: I think it will. Yeah, let's go with that.

MAMI: Yeah, let's.

TOMOMI: Ah, they didn't ask for a pouch!

RINA: Oh yeah.

TOMOMI: ...do they not want one??

RINA: They said they just wanted to convey what they just told us.

TOMOMI: Then I guess they don't get one...

RINA: Please send in another message.

MAMI: Please ask for one.

•The program starts with this.

•HARU says that the remaining five mistakes might be a little harder to discern. TOMO then asks about staff member Kawai-chan presumably holding an acoustic guitar (RINA: "They look like a singer-songwriter"). HARU says that they'll continue the program while some background music plays. The others are confused, and TOMO goes, "Wait, wait, wait. I don't understand! What kind of reply is that?!" HARU laughs and Kawai-chan starts playing the guitar. TOMO goes, "That's so scary!" The three of them are confused at what's going on. HARU then says that six mistakes have been found. The others are confused again and RINA asks what the most recent mistake was. HARU says that the staff member playing guitar as their BGM, as they normally do not do this, is one of the mistakes.

•MAMI then asks HARU if there are any other mistakes that can be seen in plain view, which she says yes to. TOMO guesses that their program director now has 22 cups, which is wrong. They continue looking around before HARU and TOMO say that they should start reading some messages. HARU does reconfirm that there are things in plain view. MAMI goes, "Ah, our chairs are different!" HARU laughs and says that they're the same as before. RINA says that their chairs were always all different to begin with. HARU says that there are two mistakes that can be seen, and also says that they did the Kinoko no Yama thing a while ago but no one noticed. They're still confused and MAMI says that she doesn't know what they could be at all. HARU then gives them a hint that it's near their program staff members. After a few seconds, TOMO notices something about one of the computers, which then makes them break out into laughter. They go, "What's with that?! It's sooo small!" The "ding dong" sound plays and HARU confirms that it's a toy Macbook Air. RINA says that she didn't notice that before.

•They continue looking for more mistakes, which HARU and the staff laugh at. She gives them another hint that it's around their program writer Ono-san, who then tells the band to list their New Year's resolutions. HARU asks RINA to go first. RINA pauses and says she doesn't have any at all, which HARU and the staff laugh at. RINA says that this year is the band's 15th anniversary and the year that RINA will turn 30. Since she'll have been in the band half of her life so far, she wants to cherish both music and her life. HARU says that you start to think about things like that when you turn 30. RINA wonders if that's true, and that it's something she hasn't thought about until recently, and that she wants to have more fun things happen.

•HARU suddenly asks if MAMI's doing okay, which the staff laughs at, since she's still looking for what the remaining mistakes could be. HARU says that they might be hard to get. TOMO guesses that Ono-san is wearing an unfamiliar ring, which is wrong. MAMI mentions something about a white piece of paper, which makes HARU go, "Ah!" MAMI seemingly looks closer and wonders if one of the staff members lost their script. RINA says that it's blank, which is the right answer.

•There are now two mistakes remaining. HARU says that they may have already noticed one of them, and that the last one is pretty hard to spot. TOMO asks if it's something they've touched. HARU says no, but they should have already seen it. They wonder what it is for a little bit until HARU asks MAMI to say her resolutions. MAMI goes, "Eh? Resolutions? Resolutions...... What should I do in 2021...... Eh, I'm kind of unsure." HARU and the staff laugh at this. MAMI then says that she's kind of thought about it and then pauses for a long time again. They laugh again and RINA brings up the mistakes, asking if it has to do with a lot of packages that were brought in to where they're recording. HARU says that's not quite it, but that that's a good observation. They then wonder if someone's in disguise. RINA asks if it's someone they know, which HARU says yes to. She then says to remember back to the first championships. MAMI asks if she's talking about how there was different person (Yamada-chan, a woman) doing audio for the episode instead of their usual person (Kawai-chan, also a woman). HARU goes, "And...?" MAMI is confused and says that Kawai-chan is here for the recording today. HARU goes, "Instead of Kawai-chan was...? Who was that person?" MAMI says that Yamada-chan was the person who brought in all of the packages today, which HARU says is correct: Yamada-chan works for a takkyubin service. The others are surprised. MAMI says she didn't see her and RINA says that she had no idea at all. HARU says that she thought the others had seen her, which is why she gave the hint that she did. When they're recording Catch up, it's usually that a delivery man comes to deliver packages. Since Yamada-chan is a woman, they considered it a "basic mistake." The others say that was difficult.

•They go back to MAMI's resolutions, which she's still unsure about. HARU says there is one more mistake remaining but they're most likely not going to figure it out, so MAMI should focus on deciding what her resolutions are. She still doesn't know what to go with. The others say they can be anything. She finally decides that, as she love to make her own clothes and buys a lot of fabric for that, she will organize her fabrics. The others chuckle and HARU asks how many she's bought. MAMI says she's bought a ton. HARU asks if she's collecting them, and MAMI says that she often buys 2-3 meters of fabric at a time, so she has a huge pile of them.

•HARU then asks TOMO about her resolutions. TOMO says that she grew a vegetable garden on her balcony during the stay-at-home period last year but it didn't work out since the weather was too rainy. She basically could only grow one cucumber and a few strawberries, so she'd like to try doing it again this year and hopes that the weather's more stable.

•They then return to the last mistake. MAMI asks if it has something to do with Ono-san, which HARU says yes to. RINA thinks that it has something to do with the script. MAMI says that she doesn't see one. HARU says that they're close, and that you can see it if you change your viewpoint. TOMO says that there are loose threads [on Ono-san's clothing, presumably], which isn't correct. RINA says that they give up. HARU says that she'll then announce what it is. The correct answer is that Ono-san mistakenly brought soy sauce instead of coffee. The others say that they had no idea. MAMI says that she did notice that he wasn't drinking anything. HARU says that Ono-san often makes mistakes in the script too. They look at it and TOMO says that it says "Catch uppy." HARU says that it actually says "Cutch uppy." RINA asks if he actually made that mistake, which he says he did.

•The staff asks HARU what her resolutions are. She says that she's been drinking miso soup once a day for a bit now to improve her constitution. She used to eat bread for breakfast, but now she drinks miso soup instead. She adds in things like wakame (seaweed), mushrooms, and tofu. She'd like to try continuing doing this for as long as possible. She says that this alone helps to change her body, which the staff asks her in what way it changes it. She says a lot of stuff that I'm not going to list lol but basically, it's good for capillaries and your body feeling lighter overall.

•As they close out the episode, they say that since they already had this championship during the first episode of 2021, that means that this relaxing and peaceful atmosphere will continue, since that's how Ono-san does things. MAMI asks if that means that they're not going to do any recordings on-location, which HARU says yes to. RINA and TOMO both go, "What's with that?!" at the same time. They both say how doing those were pretty fun and that they were really looking forward to doing more. HARU says that they originally planned for that but can't do so anymore, but above all, the staff is enjoying this program, which the staff laughs at.



The first episode of 2021 is the second "Basic Mistake Championship"! Is it possible to find all of the basic mistakes?

HARUNA: Happy New Year! This is SCANDAL's vocalist HARUNA,

TOMOMI: Bassist TOMOMI,

MAMI: Guitarist MAMI,

RINA: And drummer RINA-chan.

All: (laughs)

RINA: Hey! Why does my program script say this?? This is so embarrassing, having this happening in the beginning! I just read it as-is... What's with today's script?

HARUNA: Our staff suddenly gave these to us...
Well then, for this first episode of 2021, we'll be having fun while eating Meiji snacks this year too.

MAMI: The snacks in front of us prepared today... There's a pile of "Kinoko no Yama" (TL: Mushroom Mountain) which truly makes it a "yama" (mountain)... What's with this?

HARUNA: Today... A lot of things have already begun.

MAMI: ...eh?

RINA: ...what have?

TOMOMI: I mean, didn't HARUNA get to the recording location before us?

RINA: It wasn't a comment taken from a different program??

TOMOMI: That's what I'm saying...

HARUNA: Our staff suddenly gave these to us, and they're going to collect them in a bit.

MAMI: Eh?

RINA: What?

MAMI: That's scary... What?

TOMOMI: Ah... Are we restarting the episode?

RINA: Eh, eh?

HARUNA: Yes, yes, calm down a bit.
Let's begin!
This may be sudden, but...
A New Year special! The second "Basic Mistake Championship"!

RINA: So there's a second one...

HARUNA: NO MOO-RE basic mistakes in the Year of the Cow!
So, we will now give you your real scripts.

(*The fake scripts given to them initially were collected, and they were given new, actual scripts...)

MAMI: Yeah, the script that was given to me is huge...

RINA: MAMI's script is insane (laughs).

TOMOMI: The championship has already started!

HARUNA: To celebrate the new year of 2021, this project is back as a "New Year's special"! Does everyone remember it? The first one was back in August of last year... and today, there are 10 basic mistakes to be found during this recording. This project is about the three of you joining forces and finding them. By the way, I know what they all are. The person who finds the first mistake will be crowned "The Second Miss Basic Mistake"!
To celebrate the New Year, the "Basic Mistake Championship" is being held early in the new year!
Around the recording location there are 10 basic mistakes that never should have happened. This project in which the three other members aside from HARUNA work together to find the mistakes. The first one was in the summer, and this one today marks the second one.

RINA: I wonder how many we've already seen.

TOMOMI: I know one!

MAMI: Yes! Only my script is gigantic...

HARUNA: Ding dong! Only MAMI's script being huge is a basic mistake.

RINA: The figurine of the Victor dog (Nipper) that's always around [the recording location] is now a cow figurine...

HARUNA: Ding dong! Carelessly leaving this figurine because it's the Year of the Cow is a basic mistake.

*Cow figurine


TOMOMI: Ah, I know...!
"Chopped brown mushrooms" are hidden within the mountains on the "Kinoko no Yama" boxes!

RINA: Is that why they're piled so high...

HARUNA: It is a basic mistake that we prepared actual mushrooms instead of "Kinoko no Yama."

MAMI: (*Staring at the script) I know! The character for "cow" (牛) is wrong... It says "horse" (午).

HARUNA: How observant - ding dong! You guys are getting them fast.

RINA: Ah... So is the "Drummer RINA-chan" in the opening one of the mistakes too??

HARUNA: That's also a mistake!

RINA: Ehー! I just read it as-is...




By the way...the fake script looked like this⬇⬇

•The program starts with this.

•The band mentions that this is the last "Catch up" episode of 2020, and that time's flown by since the program started in March. This then happens.

•This entire episode is basically them expanding on the answers to the questions asked.



•HARU's Q&A:

Spoiler:
•For the second question, RINA asks if HARU had taken the test to become certified; HARU says no, and that she's still studying for it. For the third question, MAMI originally asks HARU to describe 2020 in one letter. HARU takes a long time thinking of one and says that she can't think of one at all, so MAMI asks her to describe it in one word. HARU still takes a long time answering and says that a lot happened in 2020 (RINA: "This is taking a long time"), and then finally answers "healthy."

•After her Q&A ends, she expands further on her answers. For the first question and learning to "wake up early," TOMO asks if she wakes up early to go on walks, which HARU confirms. RINA asks what time HARU wakes up. She says it's usually around 8 am (RINA & MAMI: "That's early"), and since she gets stressed more easily than before, she needs to go on walks twice a day.

•For the second question and the livestream, HARU says that of course it's best when they have a live audience, but that the feelings of everyone watching the stream were somehow conveyed to them, and this was something they could have only done in 2020.

•For the third question and becoming a dog specialist, RINA asks if it's difficult to study for the cerfication. HARU says no, and that it's fun. Everything on it you would be able to understand if you own a dog. There's a lot of lingo, but test itself isn't very hard as it's multiple choice. RINA wishes her good luck for when she takes it, and HARU says that she'll try to take it in the first half of 2021.

•For the fourth question and HARU choosing "healthy," RINA says that she was super unsure of what to go with. HARU laughs and agrees. She says that she also thought of the word "accumulate" (蓄える; takuwaeru) since of course there were a lot of things that couldn't be done in 2020, but she thought it was a year in which she lived very humanly. Until 2020 they had been very busy doing stuff year-round like touring around Japan/the world, but in 2020 she was able to step back and take a good look at herself and also live healthy, which is why she went with "healthy."

•For the fifth question and what she wants to be praised for (becoming fond of speaking), she says that like her sense of responsibility (like how she's always the one speaking during the band's MCs at concerts) disappeared a bit and started to like talking about herself. She also really likes listening to others. These things are what she wants to be praised for. The staff reminds her that she also did some narrating for a TV show. HARU says that she's happy there are surprisingly a lot of things she wants to be praised for.

•For the sixth and final question about the moments when Lady made her heart twinge the most, RINA says that Lady did her tricks properly when she went to HARU's place, which also impressed her. HARU says that of course there are things that Lady doesn't want to do, so when that happens and HARU uses treats to train her, Lady does learn how to do them.




•TOMO's Q&A:

Spoiler:
•For the first question, the others are surprised to learn that TOMO can now eat a little bit of cilantro (TOMO: Only a little bit"). HARU asks her if there was a trigger for that. TOMO says that she tried eating rice with some cilantro in it, and it made her think that maybe that small amount might be okay. She says that the tantanmen at a place called "Benitokage" in the Sakura-Shinmachi area of Tokyo has a little bit of cilantro in it, and she thinks that that amount makes the food taste good.

•For the second question and the livestream, the others agree that they don't really get loud outside of concerts, and TOMO says that it'll probably be the same in the future as well.

•For the third question and her laptop she can't set up, TOMO says that it was delivered about a week prior to the taping of this episode and hasn't been able to access any emails. MAMI says that she just needs to input her email address and password, but TOMO says that she can't
"solve" her password. The others laugh and MAMI goes, "This isn't a quiz!" HARU asks about the security questions you can answer when you can't remember your password, but TOMO never set those up in the first place. HARU goes, "It's probably impossible then," which TOMO agrees with and says that she might need to make a new email address.

•For the fourth question and TOMO choosing "unusual," she goes, "This year certainly was unusual, wasn't it?" She lists things like canceling so many concerts and going so long without seeing the fans, but she was glad that this period of time was the way it was, experience-wise--however, she hopes that this doesn't happen again and wants things to go back to normal.

•For the fifth question and wanting to be praised for making tons of meals, TOMO says that she would often call a friend who lives nearby and invite them over to eat, but since they haven't been able to do that, she made a different dish every day for herself, which made her body happy.

•For the sixth and final question and cabbage rolls, TOMO says that this is her favorite dish that her mom makes, which are roll cabbages eaten with Kansai-style udon soup stock. HARU has tried it before and confirms that it's delicious.




•RINA's Q&A:

Spoiler:
•For the first question and video editing, RINA says that she didn't think she'd try YouTubing, but since she didn't have many things she would output to the world, she thought she'd try challenging herself and is editing/posting videos at her own pace.

•For the second question and houseplants, TOMO says that she'll go with RINA to pick out some plants. RINA says that she wasn't sure what places would be good to go to, and didn't know what plants would be good for beginners. She also says that she wants to film their outing for a YouTube video, which all of them say is a good idea.

•For the third question and RINA choosing "living," she says that springtime was might be the first time since the band formed that she's taken a good look at herself, which she's grateful for. It also made her think that cooking and eating your own meals at home every day is important.

•For the fourth question and the computer being RINA's most useful item, for a long time now she's been bad with computers and would basically only use them to listen to music or watch movies, but since this year they've had to communicate remotely and everything, it was a great learning experience for her since she had to master learning how to use it. HARU comments that RINA also uses it for video editing, and RINA says that she didn't think she'd become able to do so much on a computer. She also says that she might have had too much time to do various things.

•For the fifth quetion and wanting to be praised for blogging a lot, up until recently RINA had basically only been blogging after concerts, but since they no longer had any concerts to play, she wondered if it was okay to write about other similar things. She thought about stopping and didn't blog for about a week, but she got a bunch of DMs saying things like, "I'm looking forward to another blog entry," which made her realize that there are people who are pleased with blogs about nothing in particular. HARU mentions that RINA even blogged about HARU's stint as a narrator for a TV show, which she's very grateful for. RINA says that how good or not the members are at updating the social media accounts varies, so they all decided that the members all have individual socials, their blog would be written by RINA on behalf of the entire band. She says that she won't keep updating it forever, but she'll convey all of their pertinent info, and hopes that everyone views it with that in mind.

•For the sixth and final question and her favorite piece of clothing, RINA says that she just answered without really thinking about it, which the others laugh about. She said she chose it based on memories of the tour they were on at the time she bought the piece, which is when she had blonde hair. Since toning down her hair considerably to a darker color, she's enjoyed wearing the same clothes while giving off different impressions.




•MAMI's Q&A:

Spoiler:
•Before it starts, MAMI says that going last has made her really consider what her answers will be, but isn't sure at all. For the first question and being able to draw on her eyebrows, MAMI first goes, "Well...", which both she and the others laugh at. RINA says that it seems like there would be a lot of things that she learned how to do this year. MAMI wonders if that's true, but she doesn't really remember the year, which she's surprised at, and then settles with drawing on eyebrows. Before, she couldn't draw them at all, so she asked their makeup artist when they were doing her makeup tips on how to make them symmetrical. She didn't own any eyebrow products before but has started to buy some and can now draw her eyebrows on.

•For the second question and setting up her TV to play all kinds of videos being the most moving thing that happened to her, she says she can now watch stuff from services she subscribes to on her TV. RINA asks if she bought a new TV. She says no, and that she connected stuff to her TV to watch that stuff. She subscribes to a bunch of different services and would always watch it on her computer or phone prior to this. Being able to watch it on her TV now makes for a very comfortable experience.

•For the third question and MAMI asking HARU when she wants to go eat budae-jjigae next, HARU says that they've been going out to eat that a lot recently. RINA says that she had no idea they were doing that. MAMI says that she's always liked Korean food, but she's really been addicted to it lately. HARU says that they go out to eat Korean food almost every time they meet up. RINA asks if they go to the Shin-Okubo part of Tokyo (Tokyo's Koreatown) to eat. They say yes, and that they also go to Shibuya. MAMI says the band should all go together next time, and that she hopes she can eat Korean food in South Korea when they hopefully go in 2021.

•For the fourth question and MAMI choosing "quiet," she says home is where most people basically had to spend most of their time, which made for a quiet year.

•For the fifth question and 20 hours being the longest MAMI spent sleeping in one day in 2020, RINA asks if she did something the previous day that would have worn her out. MAMI says no, and that it was probably when the first emergency declarations were made and she didn't have anything to do at home. She thought she'd get up early, but she forgot to set her alarm and it was nighttime by the time she woke up.

•For the sixth question and MAMI now being able to write songs while singing and playing to her own accompaniment, she says that when she previously wrote songs, she would have perfect songs in her head that were a combo of a driving rhythm she had in mind and guitar sounds that she'd make outside of stuff for the band. Her rule was that she would need to reproduce that and send it to everyone as a demo. Otherwise, she felt like what she wanted to say wouldn't be conveyed. She was able to break that, and now it's more efficient for when she writes songs. RINA notes that all of the recent demos have been like that, which is why their range when it comes to arrangement has grown. She also says quietly to look forward [to future releases].

•For the seventh and final question where MAMI answered that pink was her favorite hair color in 2020, she wonders what hair colors she's done this year. The others say brown, and mention that she also did navy blue around her birthday (although it doesn't look blue in photos). They say she had three hair colors: brown, navy blue, and pink. MAMI says that she tried brown since she had never done a brown color before, but she felt that something was lacking, which is why she bleached the hell out of it and made it pink. The others agree that bright colors suit her best. MAMI says that her stance is that trying a lot of colors out is SCANDAL MAMI-like, and TOMO says that it makes her and the others feel more at ease since they're used to seeing her with crazy hair colors. RINA says that they do want MAMI, their lead guitarist, to be brightly colored. TOMO mentions that their stylist had trouble styling MAMI when she had brown hair, feeling that there wasn't enough punch to it. MAMI's is a necessary position because the balance of their outfits changes. MAMI says that she wanted to make her hair pink to also rev her engines up.



•The next segment is the "Parallel Q&A" conducted directly after the "SEASONS" concert on December 24th. Before closing out the first Q&A, HARU says that they will each need to think of any kind of question to ask the asker of their personal Q&A. They each write down a question which will be asked in the "Parallel Q&A."

•It starts off with the band reminiscing over "SEASONS." TOMO says that she isn't sure what kind of faces she made, and that she's scared to find out. RINA says there was an air of tension since the audience was all masked up and couldn't shout/could only clap their hands, but they felt a sense of security by having a live audience to begin with. She also felt like tearing up when the lights went on. HARU says that the applause they received when the first went on made her teary. The others agree, and TOMO says that that applause felt so warm. They say they're glad they decided to see everyone at the end of the year, how grateful they are that everyone came out in the midst of everything going on, and that everyone followed the rules (note: no cases have been linked to this concert). They also mention how photos and videos were allowed during "Tsuki," and that those who weren't able to come can check out users' photos/videos, as well as the stream of the concert.

•One staff member then asks them if they remember the questions asked to each other. TOMO says that she doesn't. The staffer then asks them if they're okay with him deciding which member to kick things off with. The band says that's fine and he starts with RINA who asked a question to MAMI. The question is, "What was the best thing you bought in 2020?" MAMI isn't sure at first, but eventually decides on a ceiling light that looks like a glass sphere with a lightbulb inside.

•Next is MAMI's question to HARU: "What did you eat for lunch?" HARU says KFC and sushi (MAMI: "It is Christmas after all").

•Next is HARU's question to TOMO: "What was the best camping equipment you bought in 2020?" TOMO says a mini portable gas stove from the brand Iwatani. HARU asks if it's just for using when she's solo camping. She says that she did buy it for solo camping, but it's pretty big that it'd also be great to use if others were to come with her. MAMI says that these stoves and gas canisters are about half the size of regular ones. TOMO says that it does fit large pots and can serve four people, and tells them to tell her if they would ever like to go camping. RINA says that she would like to go. TOMO says that they shouldn't go in winter since they'd likely die, but maybe when it gets warmer.

•Lastly is TOMO's question to RINA. She doesn't remember the question at all so she has to get help from the staff. The question is, "What will be your first meal in 2021?" They all laugh and say that that's a future future question. RINA says that since she's been at home by herself all year and will not go visit her parents, she'll probably eat something like chikara udon , which they say sounds very RINA-like. They again all laugh at how TOMO's question was meant for something even further in the future.

•They close out the episode by reminiscing more on "Catch up": This program was the only thing that was a constant this year, and it started right around the time they had to postpone/cancel their tour and no longer had a place where they could see everyone, so it feels like everything was linked to each other. They say they were saved by it, and that they'll be waiting for everyone's messages in 2021 too.



SCANDAL has confirmed that there have been no COVID cases reported among anyone who was in attendance at "SEASONS."


Two weeks have passed since "SCANDAL 『SEASONS』collaborated with NAKED" was held, and we'd like to inform everyone that there has been no confirmation of a COVID outbreak or infection from the audience, band, or staff.

We thank you for your cooperation.

When I dropped by my neighborhood florist
On the way to the supermarket,
They told me, "Take some sweet peas for free."
Their kindness warmed me up〜




It looks like we'll be spending more time at home for a bit longer.
It's hard on everyone, and everyone's sick of it,
But let's get through this.

We've canceled all our rehearsals this month,
And it's kind of like, "Well, what we should we do now?"
But these past several days, we've been going back and forth
And thinking of merch designs
For our next fan club tour〜
I'm also writing lyrics...☺㊙

またしばらく家で過ごす時間が
増えそうでみんな大変だし疲れるけど、
なんとか乗り切ろうね。

Looking back by doing a Q&A at the end of 2020! They also do a Q&A for themselves in the future!?

Episode #43 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN Vp3fGLJ




HARUNA: This is the last episode of "Catch up" for 2020.

This week we will be bringing to you "Catch up 2020, SCANDAL's Q&A"
And SCANDAL's "Parallel Q&A"
Conducted directly after the "SEASONS" concert on the 24th.

TOMOMI: That sounds difficult...

MAMI: A parallel Q&A??

HARUNA: Today, we'll first be doing a Q&A. That'll consist of us looking back on this year.
And, the day we're recording this episode is December 10th... We haven't yet held our concert.
So, the episode today combines this "2020 Q&A" we'll now be doing,
As well as the "Q&A" that will be recorded after our concert.

RINA: I see.

TOMOMI: Yeaーh, that's complicated.

RINA: Well, hopefully everyone just has fun listening to it...

HARUNA: We're the only ones who are confused...

RINA: Basically, we're recording today and the day of the concert.

MAMI: Understood.

Sorry for making things complicated.
In other words, there will be two Q&A conducted over two days.

Let's get right into the "2020 Q&A."




MAMI: Starting from HARUNA.

What did you learn how to do this year?

Waking up early


What moved you most this year?

I wonder... Our livestream on August 21st


Is there anything this year that you don't need to say but want to say since it's the end of the year?

I tried to qualify as a dog rearing specialist by the end of the year, but I wasn't able to... I'll carry it over to the next year


How would you describe 2020 in words?

Healthy


What do you want to praise yourself the most for this year?

I wonder... Ah, I became fond of speaking thanks to the radio. Maybe I want to be praised for knowing I'm not good at it


Which moment was it that your dog made your heart twinge the most this year?

Ehー... She makes my heart twinge every day, but she does make it twinge when she learns something I taught her...




HARUNA: Next up is TOMOMI.


What did you learn how to do this year?

I can now eat a little bit of cilantro


What was your loudest moment this year?

The song I sang [lead on] during our August 21st livestream.


Is there anything this year that you don't need to say but want to say since it's the end of the year?

I bought a laptop but I can't set it up...


How would you describe 2020 in one word?

Unusual (珍; chin - short for 珍しい; mezurashii)


What do you want to praise yourself the most for this year?

I made a ton of meals


What was the most delicious dish you cooked this year?

Cabbage rolls!




TOMOMI: Next is RINA.


What did you learn how to do this year?

Edit videos


Is there anything this year that you don't need to say but want to say since it's the end of the year?

I want some houseplants,
But since it's hard for me to choose, please come along with me, TOMOMI.
(TOMOMI: Okay)


How would you describe 2020 in one word?

Living (暮らす; kurasu)


What was your most useful item this year?

My computer


What do you want to praise yourself the most for this year?

I blogged a lot


What was your favorite outfit this year?

A blouse I bought at a secondhand clothing store in Osaka. It would have been great to wear it after a long time




RINA: Lastly, MAMI!


What did you learn how to do this year?

Well...
I don't really remember this year...
Ah, I can now draw on my eyebrows


What moved you most this year?

This is super recent, but I was so moved by setting up my TV so that I can watch video streaming sites too


Is there anything this year that you don't need to say but want to say since it's the end of the year?

Hーm, HARU-chan, when should we go eat budae-jjigae next?


How would you describe 2020 in one word?

Quiet (静か; shizuka)


How many hours did you sleep on your most sleepiest day of this year?

20 hours!


What do you want to praise yourself the most for this year?

When writing a song, I can now make it by singing and playing to my own accompaniment


What was your favorite hair color this year?

Pink!

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 42


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN DgodPpS
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN C2iZfpp





•The program starts with this.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who is talking about their female friend. Basically, they say that their friend works in a place where it's mainly men, and that the men often invite the friend to after-work functions. However, she hasn't been able to say no to going out to one-on-one things despite having a boyfriend since she wants to talk about work and such with her coworkers. TOMO goes, "There are no periods in this at all!" The band laughs and TOMO says she'll keep reading. The listener says that it then became a matter of determining when something like that is considered a date instead. According to the friend, it's not right to go out to eat with someone of the opposite sex whom you've recently met, and it's also not right to go eat somewhere trendy with a coworker or friend since it'll be like a date (MAMI: "Oh no" [in English]), but it's fine if it's a place like a ramen shop since you're there for a short amount of time and that you're mainly there for the food. The listener asks SCANDAL what they think is the fine line between a date and not a date. MAMI says that it's kind of difficult to tell where it is in this case, but it should be fine for them to go if they tell the boyfriend that it's a work socialization thing. TOMO says that it's more of a matter of the bf being aware of what's going on, and if the bf doesn't like the situation then he could go along, and/or they could invite others along as well. HARU says that going to eat after work isn't really something you would consider a date anyway. RINA says that, like what the message said, the place you go out to matters; if you were to purposely go out to a hip/fancy place, then that's kind of unusual. HARU agrees that you usually wouldn't go somewhere like that with a coworker. The staff asks them if going to a ramen place would be okay, like what was mentioned in the message. The band agrees that somewhere like that would be fine, and that it's for sure something that happens with coworkers. TOMO says that however much they're willing to allow is up to the two of them.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who's a 25-year-old guy who looks rugged but likes cute things and food that girls tend to like, and is often told that he's strange. He also mentions that he never gets a reply back from RINA when he comments on her YouTube videos. The band laughs and HARU goes, "He suddenly put up a wall between us." He then asks the band for love advice. The girls he likes don't see him as a man and see him more as a little brother. His friends tell him that it doesn't seem like he doesn't want to be any more than just friends. He asks the band how he can be seen as a man. RINA addresses the first part of the message and says that she thinks it's best to live your life according to the appearance and gender that suits you. You like what you like, and that's totally fine. She also talks about gender-related stuff that's been mentioned in the news recently like with how toys are gendered , and the same goes for fashion. She thinks that everyone should wear what they really want to wear and live their lives happily, and that if, for example, she had a child who was a girl and the child wanted a toy car, she would absolutely give it to her. They then address the love advice part. MAMI says that she thinks if a guy simply wants to be seen as a man by the women around him, then he's probably being too passive. She thinks that they should appeal themselves a little more. HARU says that she thinks this is likely to happen to her own little brother since he's so kind to everyone and treats them all the same, whether it be his friends or someone that he's romantically interested in, which is why she thinks that whomever he's interested in probably doesn't feel that they're being treated in any special way and they don't realize that he likes them. She says that he's so kind and super attentive to detail, and that he's not mysterious enough to make you want to find out more about him. Going back to the listener, TOMO says that she thinks he should show his romantic interests that he's interested in them in that way, and to not pay attention to what his friends think. They basically all agree that the listener should appeal themselves more and be a little more assertive.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who says that they looked for but can't find the Meltykiss chocolate in the Butter Caramel flavor. They also talk about the snow in Hokkaido and reference the lyrics to SCANDAL's song "HELLO" ("Midwinter ballerinas floated down to the city"). They planned to spend Christmas with a wonderful boyfriend, but they remained single this year too. They're currently 21, and ever since they were dumped by a boy in their third year of high school, they've been traumatized and are scared of love. As they put up a barrier so that they wouldn't get hurt, they lost sight of what love truly is. They ask the band at what moment have they thought, "Oh, I like/love this person." They want to be more honest with themselves while referring to what the band says. They also say that since they don't have an SO that can be Santa for them, they ask the band to give them an Apollo pouch as a Christmas present. The band laughs and says that they will give them a pouch. They also wonder what love truly is. HARU says that that's something she's really been wondering recently. RINA says that to put it simply, it's kind of like being so excited that you can't control yourself. MAMI agrees and says that you think about the person 24/7. TOMO says it's when you think about what you can do for or give to that person, and when you want to make the other person to be happy instead of wishing for own happiness by being with that person. RINA agrees that that's what love is for adults. MAMI wonders if the listener hasn't felt that way about someone since they were in their third year of high school since they wrote they're scared of love. TOMO thinks that they've basically stopped in their tracks in that regard. She also thinks that if you stay in the same place, you won't be able to forget exes. That's why if you keep evolving and growing, someone new will likely turn up for you in the future. MAMI agrees says that it's important to take a step forward instead of standing still. RINA says that it might be better to deal with love by thinking of it as a new experience, like "Oh, this person might be *the* one." They think the listener will be fine and say they should experience various types of romance.

•HARU reads the next message from a 34-year-old listener who asks a question about love. They confessed to a woman at their work whom they fell in love with at first sight and who is also a SCANDAL fan. She told them that she's sorry but she has a boyfriend. The listener sustained trauma from that and says it's painful to see couples. They ask the band how they should meet new romantic interests. TOMO goes, "How about not falling in love at first sight?" The others laugh and agree. TOMO also says they should get to know people a little deeper. MAMI says that falling in love at first sight is okay, but one should confirm some things before you tell a person that you like them. HARU agrees, referencing how the listener confessed to the woman without knowing that she already had a boyfriend. TOMO does agree that falling in love at first sight is okay, but if they had learned about the boyfriend and still continued to like the woman, then they could have tried continuing to appeal to her. If they still wanted to say that they like her, then they should consider the fact that they're trying to steal her away from her SO. MAMI says that the listener should think about things for a longer period of time. TOMO says that the listener was too hasty, and RINA comments on the fact that the listener confessed without knowing anything about the coworker's relationship status at all. MAMI puts on an old man-sounding voice and goes, "It's like they went, 'This girl is cute, she likes SCANDAL, we have the same interests--I love her!', right?" The others laugh and RINA says understands their feelings and thinks that having that kind of passion is important, but they should have spent more time trying to appeal themselves. MAMI says that maybe this listener would do well with the previous listener and would break down their barrier. They laugh and TOMO says that they should match them up. HARU laughs and disagrees, saying that their types are a little too different from each other. For this current listener, the band says that they should slow down and not be in a hurry. They're only 34, and supposing they live until 100, they still have a lot of time left.
