Q: For the first time there’s a members introduction song, so in accordance, introduce the side of the members that only HSJ knows about.
Keito about Hikaru
He decides by himself that he should be like my elder brother.
Hikaru about Chinen
Even though he has some ideas on how to perform and such, surprisingly, he also has some very interesting and fun ideas. His mind works really fast. I wonder if the fans actually know about this. (Chinen said yes, so Hikaru continued for another side that the fans do not know).
Personally, I think that the timing that we get tired are quite similar. For example, we have work all day long, so there’ll be times when we get tired. Like we get tired, then get active again and so on. But when I go like.. “Ah.. I’m tired” then I look at Chinen, similarly Chinen will go “Ah.. my back hurts..” It’s like our body fitness conditions are similar.
Chinen about Yuya
Yuya is really different from what you see of his image. (Yamada: Originally, he has a cool image, like an O-blood type image, but now he doesn’t have that image anymore.. more like.. baka?)
Chinen continued with some examples of how Yuya behaves when he joins Yamada and Keito during their mealtimes. (Can’t understand fully what they say here so I’m not translating).
Daiki relates a story from the Kira Kira Hikare PV, when there’s a point of the choreography towards the end that requires the members to put a hand on the shoulder of the person next to him, and Takaki is next to him. At that time, he saw clearly Takaki’s boxers (I think it’s boxers, but he saw something). Then Takaki was like.. “Stop it! I told you to stop it already!” That was the first time I’ve seen that side of Takaki. Somehow, it feels feminine.
Hikaru talked about their performances for “Come On A My House” and how they have a similar expression everytime they perform a certain part of the choreography but when he looked at Takaki, it’s like he has a very bright expression. (Yuto: He’s always laughing at that time).
Yuya about Yuto
Besides what we know about Yuto, he has another side to him that he’s really really fun that I would like everyone to know about.
Hikaru: For example, in today’s PV Shooting (Kira Kira Hikare), we played “Daruma san ga Koronda” (A game where 1 player closes his eyes towards the pole, the rest has to try to touch him. When he said it’s mealtime everyone is supposed to run away from him. He’ll have about 10 seconds to catch people. Just a gist of the game). When it comes to Yuto and he turns around to catch, he catch the person the furthest away in just 7 steps. Daiki: It’s scary but really funny.
Yuto about Yabu
Don’t really get what Yuto meant.
Yabu about Yamada
Yabu: When he gets into the mood, he’s like an elementary school kid.
Daiki: Yea that’s right!
Yabu: How old are you today?
Yuto: What’s with that behaviour!
Daiki: He even acts like a robot.
Yamada: Stop that!
*display of robot behaviours*
Hikaru: When that happens, our reaction will be like.. *shocked expression*
Hikaru: Once, during a lesson, Yamada was standing at the front. He turned twice (then action of kicking and hand gesture). I was like thinking “Eh what is he doing? Is he a kid?”
Daiki: He will suddenly demonstrate childlike behaviours.
Hikaru: What is with that?
Daiki: At what point of time do you become like that?
Yabu: When do you normally turn on the switch?
Yuto: You do that a lot while dancing. Like during dance choreographies.
Daiki: Can you show it to us now?
Yamada: No way. That’s impossible!
Someone: Do it do it!
Daiki: Even becoming a robot is good.
Yabu: You don’t think about it right?
Chinen: Just do something like that!
Yamada: It’s impossible to do it now!
Daiki: We just want to introduce this side of you!
Yamada: But the switch is on right now!
*Yamada displaying some robotlike behaviours
Daiki: Here it comes!
Yabu: I seriously think the fans didn’t know to what extent you get.
Daiki: He don’t show it on the stage/during performances.
Yamada: When I’m on the stage, if I could I always try to show a ‘prince-like’ character. It feels like I cannot show my real self. Just imagine during MC, I go *shows behaviour. It’ll be weird right?
Members: Will seem like an idiot (baka).
Yamada: Yeah I’ll look like an idiot right?
Inoo & Yabu: You can just show that.
Yabu: Just go all out!
Yamada: All out? Should I really go all out?
Yabu: When that time comes, with you being so childish, I’ll just become a lot more mature.
Chinen: You can just show this character now itself.
Yabu: Just add it to the dartboard – Yamada – elementary school behaviour
Yamada about Daiki
Not really sure what Yamada said by “Tokui” or “Tokuhi” which is making the whole context lost lol. But if I’m not wrong, he meant how Daiki is not as playful as he seems.
Yamada then said once he saw Daiki’s really upset look. Daiki was like saying he could probably show it now so they tried to do it. When it the expression doesn’t seem right he said he’ll do it again. Then when he showed it again, Yamada was like saying “At times like that I really don’t know what I should do.” Daiki was like saying he can only do it max 3 times a day (jokingly).
Daiki about Inoo
We just can’t imagine Inoo chan in his private life. I really don’t know. I’m really curious so once I asked him.
Daiki: Who do you normally play with? What do you enjoy doing?
Inoo: I have a friend called Ryoshi.
Daiki: He’s quite old right?
Inoo: He’s middle-aged.
Yabu: You are friends with a middle-aged man?
Daiki: It was really surprising.
Inoo about Keito
During meetings or when he’s talking, the first thing he’ll say is “There’s this one thing I’m thinking about.” He keeps saying that again and again. How many one things does he have?
Note: I only did Yamada’s part in detail cause I was specifically asked by a friend to translate that part only but I decided to translate the whole thing. (With the exception of Yabu, since I don’t fully understand it. I may not be fully accurate though, cause my Japanese comprehension is not that good.
