Kumai-chan’s art of conversation is breathtaking. Chii-chan’s interjections are superb, too.

The other day the earphones I use with my music player broke, so I bought brand new ones to replace them. But, I didn’t have time to go buy them right away, so, well, since only one earphone was broken, I just kept listening with the right R side for a while. But, umm, I’m really picky about the kind of earphones I like, so… well, I really hated listening to music with just one earphone. Well, now I have working ones so that’s good, but, anyway.
Because of my pickiness… well, about that pickiness. First of all, the most important thing I look for in them is that the low tones need to sound good. How should I put it… like, there’s that “dondondondon” sound at live shows. I want that sensation in my ears. And so, there are like the really light-sounding ones, right? What do you call them… like, earphones that are kind of cheap, they don’t really have good sound. I hate those. Right. So the low tones are the most important thing.
The second thing is, the color of the earphones definitely needs to be deep pink. If you were to ask me why? … Well, I don’t really know. But, like, with deep pink earphones, the, like, the cord is deep pink, too. But I like that. If they don’t have those, then I get black ones. Well, that’s just another thing I’m really picky about.
Then, uh, the, umm, the one last thing is, the earphones… the strength of the cord… like, what do you call it… with me, the cord of the earphones always breaks, so that’s why I always try to go for a cord that’s preferably quite stiff so it doesn’t break right away.
Right. Also, umm, how should I put it…?! Well, earphones are very important to me. And like, the list of things I look for in them… like, being picky about things like that in day to day life, I mean, everyone has those kinds of things, right? Like with you, Chinami, for example, like, the, what, umm… like, for example, you definitely want your pen to be red or something. Well, I don’t know what color pen you want. But that kind of pickiness… being picky about things like that, I have like, at least five things that I’m picky about like that. But… well… but… uhh. Umm, I’m really too picky about my ears. This one time my ears even became a little bit messed up, so the point is, please be careful about that sort of thing when you use earphones, everyone. That’s all.

That was the most useless five minutes I’ve ever spent over the entire 35 years of my life…

“I’m very particular about my earphones. They need to have good low tones, a strong cord, and a deep pink color. However, there was this one time when my ears became messed up because of that pickiness. I’d like everyone to take care when using headphones. That’s all.”

It’s really cute how at the end she gets flustered when she doesn’t know what she wants to say.

Chinami’s interjections that are completely void of any kind of heartfelt sentiment…

And to think that this is the result of writing this all down on paper and practicing the talk until perfection before bringing it up on the show.

Even that feeling of depression about having to go to work tomorrow… this talk makes you forget about all of that entirely.

The fact that after this they have the Moyamoya Tokkuma corner is even more unbelievable. I’m already wondering what the hell is going on as is!
(Note: Moyamoya Tokkuma is a corner on BZS1422 where Tokunaga and Kumai ask listeners to explain to them something they don’t quite understand.)

This! They’d asked listeners what the difference is between café au lait and caffé latte. After they finished listening to the answer, they were like “Well, I guess this is something we could’ve just as well looked up ourselves.” “Yeah…“

The feeling I get when listening to this must be similar to how I felt when I was listening to the sound of my mother’s heartbeat when I was submerged in amniotic fluid inside her stomach.

I was already lost as to what she was trying to say when she was going on about how she couldn’t stand listening to music on one earphone because she’s picky. Who wouldn’t hate listening to music with just one earphone?!

I love how often she uses weird Japanese but neither of them says anything about it.

Another classic example of a Kuma Kuma Talk that leaves the listener staring at the ground with a forced smile on their face.

Chinami is lovely, too, in how she knows there’s no point to the story and yet she just allows her to go on anyway.

It’s such a shame that the only people who will find this funny are seasoned H!P wota. If more people would realize what’s funny about this, the world would be at peace.

Well, usually no one would want to listen to someone blabber on without any point to their story. Normally they wouldn’t even air something like that. But for some reason when it’s Kumai-chan, you just want to hear what she has to say. In other words, these talks are very precious.
122: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/11/26(月) 21:46:43.07 P
She keeps going nonstop about her weird fixation toward a certain type of earphone, but when she finally says something interesting at the end about how she messed up her ears, she immediately just stops talking.

This is as close as anything can get to the literal meaning of “good for nothing.“

It’s terrifying how absolutely pointless of a five minutes that was.
Henkka: Kumai-chan’s complete inability to hold a meaningful monologue is something I’ve been wanting to introduce on this site for a long time. Isn’t it amazing how you can tell after about two sentences that her story is going absolutely nowhere?
