  1. Note: Part Three of this series is the odd one out: the topic of discussion in it wasn’t lyrics, but rather H!P-related movies. As I haven’t seen any of the films in question nor do I intend to, I chose not to translate it.

    • I don’t blame you. Morning Cop, Pinch Runner, etc arent’ exactly masterpieces of cinema.
      The reason I happen to have copies of their DVDs is to have something rare and ironic.

      Really, it’s all Camp.

      • The only H!P-related movie I ever saw was Yo-Yo Girl Cop. The only reason I watched it was that it had Matsuura Aya and Ishikawa Rika fighting each other with yo-yos. That, in itself, makes it a masterpiece of cinema.

  2. A long time ago I made a side-by-side image of Sayuki and one of the young Olson twins from their time as Michelle on “Full House”.

    I haven’t gone seeking it out so I don’t know how common a comparison it actually is, but this in particular is literally the first time I’ve seen someone else mention it. I feel vindicated.

  3. I know you provided links at the bottom to everyone’s twitter but where do you actually see the full text of these interviews? I’m really interested to read the 3rd part if I knew where it was.

    • The third part of the series was published in the January 2016 issue of the CDJournal magazine. The full texts aren’t posted online anywhere from what I know.

  4. Aren’t these two the most amazing human beings ever…
    Asai’s last words ” It’s a strange thing, having to feel frightened about the fact that you’re happy.” left me speechless. They put into great words everything many sane idol fans always think about. For some reason I was skipping the translation of all these series, but decided to read them all today and I just fell in love with these two. To me, out of all the parts, this is the best one, tackled on the most amazing topics and reviews, I never saw “The Power” with this kind of perspective before. Totally changed the song for me.

    • Hey, I’m glad you decided to check out the series and that you’re enjoying it. I remember really liking this part, too.
