Coming back from Hokkaido after New Year’s, she wanted to bring some snow back to show to the members, but unsurprisingly it’d melted by the time she reached Tokyo. Furthermore, she apparently didn’t try putting it in a cooler box with dry ice or anything. She just brought it as is.

Is this girl alright?

If she’s like this from the start, I’m afraid to see what she’ll be like later on…

She’s so pure it’s scary. I wonder if they made the right call bringing a girl a like this into the world of show business that’s so rotten to the core…

Well, Okai-chan said on Young Town that she only became able to understand what’s going on around her at the age of 11 or 12.
120: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/01/29(日) 17:16:06.19 ID:0
Just how did Okai-chan live all throughout elementary school without understanding what was going on…?

The snow might’ve melted, but the warm feeling inside me only piled up.

When Gaki-san scolds her, she apparently hides behind someone’s back for some time.

A succession of weirdos and delinquents.

Even the fact that she wanted to show the Hokkaido snow to everyone is cute. (laughs)

120124 “Risa’s NightHouse”
On the topic of Hello Concert…
（ ・ｅ・）＜ Also, there was a certain incident. Oh man… There’s this girl in our 10th generation, Sato Masaki. She’s such a child. Just a complete child. So anyway, even as I’m in my 11th year in the group, I always sort of make it a point to gather my thoughts and get fired up before a concert. So a minute or two before we go on, I don’t talk to anyone too much. I’ll just be thinking something like “Berryz sure are doing their best. Alright, we need to get going, too.” But as I was thinking that, Sato was behind me playing around with a bottle of Ramune.
The catering always has things like candy, cough drops and chocolate prepared to get our blood sugar levels up, so that’s why we had Ramune around. Anyway, she just kept playing with it, going like “Suzuki-saaan! Here, I’ll give this to you! Yaaay!!” So I of course went like, “Hey! This is no time to be playing around with Ramune. Come on, we need to get going.” So she left the Ramune behind.
Once we got back, I thought I’d just say a couple of more words about it to her, like how she needs to concentrate properly because it’s a concert. But this girl was hiding somewhere and wouldn’t come out! She’s such a child! A child!! She knew she was going to get scolded so she wouldn’t come out. Ah man… I couldn’t believe it. It’s like, I don’t think there’s ever been a member quite like her before.
Well, I think that kind of liveliness will definitely be necessary though. And that… what do you call it, that child-like innocence? I do hope she never loses that.

Don’t tell me she’s the type of girl who even at her age still believes in Santa Claus…?

At the very least she did believe in him until Christmas last year. Someone said so on radio.

111206 InterFM “Risa’s NightHouse”
From the topic of how it’s now December, to talking about a certain Sato Masaki…
（ ・ｅ・）＜ That girl’s still only 12, so I asked her if Santa-san still visits them. She answered me all smiles like “he does! ♪” When I asked her how he visits them, she was like “umm, in Maa-chan’s house…” — she calls herself “Maa-chan” — “in Maa-chan’s house… umm, we write a letter and then we sent it to Santa-san! But this one time there was this letter from Santa-san, but the moment I tried reading it, the letters just sparkled and vanished!” Like she was telling me all these really fantastical stories and I was listening and thinking “wow.“
… Being able to work with members like that is really fun. I thought she was so cute. I was like “Well, let’s hope Santa-san comes this year as well” and she was like “Yep! ♪ I already wrote him a letter!” I just thought, “man, Morning Musume sure is great.” She was so cute. It was really heartwarming.

This really made me strongly believe that I have to witness with my own eyes how the future of Maa-chan plays out.

Here’s a bonus Maa-chan episode from January 2012, again provided by Niigaki Risa on her radio show Risa’s Nighthouse.
Niigaki: “We were changing clothes in the dressing room when suddenly Sato came in without knocking. Mitsui was in her underwear, and so she was like, “Hey! Learn to knock before you come in!” It was so funny how she was saying that while naked! (laughs) Well, I mean, not naked, but in her underwear. It was so funny. (laughs)“
(Note: takamaruyo already posted a translation about the topic below, but since I’d already got to translating some comments, I’m just throwing them in anyway.)

Don’t go to high school. It’d be useless even if you did.

How could she get any points when she can’t even read the questions?

Come on, at least let her go to a school for special children.

Sato’s like one step away from being on the level of someone who just drools on themselves.

Apparently the office does warn her about taking better care of schoolwork, saying like “you can’t come to Hawaii if you don’t finish your summer homework before then.” But if she just can’t do it, what can they do? (laughs)
54: 名無し募集中。。。＠転載禁止 2014/04/20(日) 16:58:32.75 0
Well, it must be because she can’t even read any of the questions. Imagine yourself going to school where all subjects were taught in German. It’d be kind of like that.
86: 名無し募集中。。。＠転載禁止 2014/04/20(日) 17:04:55.58 0
Maa-chan is a genius in other areas. Competing with test scores is so old-fashioned.

It’s like she’s completely given up on the act of thinking.

She just can’t put her mind to seriously doing anything that doesn’t earn her money.

Maa-chan can’t read katakana, hiragana, kanji or numbers. She can’t understand human conversation, and she can’t differentiate between school, home or work. 17 points should be a passing mark for someone like that.
Henkka: If one day it comes to light that Maa-chan is actually not a genius but rather just mentally disabled, these threads will be less acceptable to laugh at.
