(On the topic of being told by her manager to blog more.)
Sanma: Is it a bother?
Sato: It’s not that. It’s because they make me do so many corrections. It’ll take me 5 or 10 minutes to write a post, but then I’ll have to spend 2 hours fixing it!
Iikubo: But it takes the rest of us an hour to write a post, too.
Sato: But for me it takes two hours and ten minutes. I just think it’s such a waste of time for me to have to be there with my phone in hand for two whole hours.
Iikubo: So why not just spend an hour to write it properly in the first place?
Sanma: You don’t want them to correct your blog posts?
Sato: It’s all stuff like… “Why don’t you put a question mark here?” It’s like, is that really necessary? They’ll interfere with stuff that’s totally not important at all.
Sanma: But you’re an idol — you’re Morning Musume. You have to write them properly.
Sato: The other day they asked me, “Sato, do you mind if we delete this part of your post?” So then I went, “Just delete the whole thing then.” I told them that, if they were to delete a part of it, to me it would’ve felt the same as if they’d deleted the whole thing.
Sanma: Maybe you don’t quite fit in the framework of Morning Musume.
Sato: When I’m seriously told things like that, it’s… Like, they tell me it’s okay to just write freely what I feel, but lately most of my posts aren’t even my own writing.
Sanma: Huuuuuuuh?! (laughs)
Sato: Like that post about the auditions on our Instagram, pretty much everything I wrote for that was changed.
Sanma: They want to let you write freely, but they’re also afraid that what you write might get in the way of Morning Musume’s success.
Sato: As of late, pretty much nothing in my posts is my own writing.
Sanma: The office won’t allow it.
Sato: It’s not that I even write anything too crazy. But lately I just tell them to do with my posts as they like.

“The remedy is worse than the disease.”
There’s an expression I’d like for this shitty office to know.
