[Translation] TV Live 2013.01.06 - 20x5 Question and Answer Session

I've been doing a lot of translating for other fandoms lately, so I wanted to do some more Arashi translations. Plus it's fun to mix things up and translate some boys instead of girls all the time. xD

Here's a short(ish) Q&A, hopefully I'll have some more things to add in the future!




(full size scans of all Arashi pages in the issue are available at satopi's weibo)

Aiba Masaki

1. What do you want to eat right now?
Fried chicken. Because the other members are eating it right in front of me and it looks delicious (lol).

2. What's something you have a habit of doing unconsciously?
I snap my fingers. It's a habit I've had since childhood so I want to stop it.

3. What's something you always have in your bag?
A tote bag from Leader's exhibition in '08. Because I received it recently.

4. What part of your body do you have the most confidence in?
I don't think there's anything. I wanted to build up some muscle so I started training, but I wasn't able to keep up with it...

5. On the other hand, what's a part you don't have much confidence in?
My muscles. I trained for three months but I didn't gain any muscle so I lost heart.

8. What's your preference for storing your keys?
I've started keeping them on a chain attached to my pants.

9. If you had a butler in the future, what would you want him to do?
There's not especially... If I move around a lot I can't relax, so I'd want him to sit and talk with me (lol).

10. Do you prefer cats or dogs as pets?
I like both, but I've only had experience owning dogs.

11. What's something that made you platinum-grade happy this year?

14. Who in Arashi seems like a mother?

17. If you had to have someone in Arashi pick clothes for you, who would it be?

Any of them would be ok. I'd go with my feeling that day, or whoever was free.

Unexpectedly, it's Leader. He's particular about a lot of things.

Dogs, I guess. The oldest shiba inu we had at home lived to be about 23 years old.

"Depravity." Because I lazed around. In a good way, a good way (lol).

I put them on keychains people give me. When I get one I add it, so I keep getting more (lol).

Sakurai Sho


1. What do you want to eat right now?
Soba. I eat a lot of soba when we're rehearsing for concerts.

Touching my nose. It was pointed out to me when I was in elementary school. It seems that I do it when I'm nervous.

3. What's something you always have in your bag?
My wallet and my phone and my charger. I always have a pencil case too.

4. What part of your body do you have the most confidence in?
My biceps. When I train, I really get results (lol).

The part of my thumb above the first joint is completely straight. Isn't it normally curved a little?

6. What's your weakness when it comes to women?
I like to see them smiling and having a good time. Watching that makes me feel good too.

7. Are you the type to make plans on your days off?
I definitely make plans. I can't imagine a day off without plans.

I don't have one. I've been using a keychain I received for about 5 years.

9. If you had a butler in the future, what would you want him to do?
I don't need one (lol). I guess I'd have him clean and cook when I'm not home.

10. Do you prefer cats or dogs as pets?
I like both, but because I'm not home often I can't have either.

11. What's something that made you platinum-grade happy this year?
Getting to play soccer with everyone from INAC Kobe. I was glad.

12. What keyword represents you this year?
"Where am I?" I was on planes so often that's how I started to feel (lol).

13. What's your lucky number?
10. It was my number in soccer and my attendance number, for some reason or another.

14. Who in Arashi seems like a mother?

Aiba-kun. Because he's really strong at arm wrestling. He's pretty wild.

17. If you had to have someone in Arashi pick clothes for you, who would it be?
Aiba-kun. He gives me clothes for my birthday and I wear them a lot.

18. Who's the biggest neat freak in Arashi?
Nino... maybe? I feel like I heard him say he likes cleaning once...

19. Who in Arashi would you want to be your nurse when you're sick?
Nino. If people were around I'd feel like I need to pay attention to them, but if it were Nino I think he'd just play games.

20. If you suddenly got lonely, who in Arashi would you invite to go drinking?
Everyone. I'm not fixated on any member, if we were going to go somewhere.




Some of these questions seem really random, but I they're supposed to be references to Arashi's activities in 2012, as well as other 2012 fads like Sugi-chan's "isn't that wild?"
How they carry their keys -> KagiHeya
Lucky number -> Lucky Seven
Butler -> NazoDi
Cats or Dogs -> Mikeneko Holmes
Platinum-grade happy -> Platinum Data
