I only just started going to events and stuff about ten years ago, but most people here are of the “ASAYAN” generation.

I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in this whole country who got into them with “Pepper Keibu.”

Question 1: What are idols?
Question 2: Why do wota get mad when an idol finds a boyfriend?

1: Idols are people who stand on stage.
2: Because then they no longer see the fans as being the most important thing.
3: They’re just a way to kill time.

1: Idols exist for you to be able to experience a simulation of youth.
2: The wota get mad at them for having boyfriends because it breaks the illusion when the person you have an unrequited love for has a boyfriend.
3: People who can’t see the point of being into idols must see it as being meaningless. (But then this is true for any hobby.)

Don’t Lecture Idols
Mofuku-chan: Don’t lecture them. “I liked that one thing you did yesterday, but that other thing wasn’t so good.” There’s seriously nothing good about saying stuff like that to idols!
Yoshida Go: If it’s not positive in nature, then just don’t say it.
Mofuku-chan: When you praise them for the things they did right, that’s what’s going to allow them to grow. As a producer, I’m the person who will do all that scolding for you. So please do not lecture them.
Yoshida: It’s such a commonplace thing, too. I mean, the wota who think, “I’m the only person who dares to scold her for the things she did wrong.“
Mofuku-chan: “The condition of your voice wasn’t too great yesterday.” That kind of stuff. They say it with this self-satisfied look on their faces. Seriously, just stop it! The idols will absolutely hate you if you say stuff like that. And that’s a promise. If they did something wrong, then guess what: they already know!
Yoshida: Or stuff like, “hey, the condition of your skin is kind of bad today, isn’t it?” (laughs)
Mofuku-chan: They already know that!
Yoshida: “Having a bad hair day?” or whatever. Just don’t say it.
Mofuku-chan: It’s the role of people like me to tell them that. So, again, you the fans shouldn’t be saying that stuff to them. It hurts them so much. You wouldn’t believe how deeply it can hurt a girl who’s going through puberty when you tell them stuff like that. It’s as if you were breaking a huge glass into a million pieces. Please handle them with absolute care. Because they’re flowers. Treat them as princesses. Tell them how beautiful they are… how cute they are… how lovely they are. Always give them those kind words so that one day they will bloom. Just… take it easy. Do not lecture them.
Yoshida: Our only job as fans is to give them that support; to love them.
Mofuku-chan: I really do think so. All those harsh comments and all the stuff that’s kind of difficult to phrase well, let me be the one to tell them all of that in your stead. Backstage. Leave it all to me. I’m sure even the stuff that I tell them hurts them. It must make them have all kinds of thoughts. But I’m going to try to tell them the best I can. So please: you just do the praising.
Yoshida: Well said. (laughs)
Mofuku-chan: There’s stuff that’s difficult even for me to say to them. I can’t always just praise them every time. But you can — at handshake events or whatever. That’s really what I hope the fans would all do.

It has to be something pretty big for someone to get into a person they used to hate.

Murotan and Kamiko. Once I went to see ANGERME at a club show they were both so cute and so accommodating that I came to love them.

I didn’t hate them, but Oda and Sato are members who went from being some of my absolute least favorites to my very top favorites.

Wanting to talk to them, wanting to be friends with them, wanting to be recognized by them — I just don’t get any of that. I think they shine when they’re performing up on stage, but off-stage, I see them as being just like any other girls.

I’d like to go one day, but I live in the countryside so I haven’t been able to yet. More than the handshake, for me it’s just the thought of getting to talk with them in person, even if only for an instant… That sounds like a dream.

“In the beginning, almost nothing was fun or pleasant. It was all painful.”
There was a misunderstanding that Niigaki had been able to join the group because of “special considerations.” Some fans took these negative rumors about her and began spreading them as if they were true. With broadband providers such Softbank Japan and Yahoo!BB entering the market, the year 2001 was one where the internet as a whole had already begun to become widely available in Japan, and online bashing towards Niigaki became very rampant. Even when the group was on stage, things like inconsiderate heckling and booing towards her would persist for a long while.
At the time, Niigaki was only 12 years old.
“There was this one concert where it was especially obvious that I hadn’t been accepted by the fans, and both my parents happened to be in the audience that time. After the concert ended, the three of us had a talk and we made a decision. “Let’s stop this already.” But after we talked it over with the staff, they convinced us to give it one more try. I then came to notice how there were some fans who supported me. There really weren’t a lot of them, but there were a couple — just a few people that supported me.”
