Paipai: This book is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Hello! Project, and so first I’d just like to say: congratulations!
Takahashi: Thank you.
Paipai: Something that caught me off-guard recently was you appearing at Morning Musume ’17’s Budokan concert.
Takahashi: Ah, the surprise appearance.
Paipai: What surprised me the most about it was how you stood on stage, looking like you’d only just been up there yesterday or something! I was astonished seeing you looking like that.
Takahashi: Really?! I didn’t mean to appear that way! (laughs)
Paipai: I know you’re mainly working in fashion right now, so I was just thinking how it was even possible for you to still have an aura like that. Like, I know you still perform at fan club events and so, but I would think you’d be at least a little bit nervous when appearing on a stage in front of 8,000 people.
Takahashi: Oh, I was super nervous. It was a complete surprise appearance so I even had to do the rehearsal with no sound. So then when I got on stage it just felt so alien to me. I was freaking out.

(Question from pen name Gomendy)
“I have a fashion-related question for Miyabi-chan. Miyabi-chan, you like to wear clothes that are quite revealing, right? I was thinking of challenging some more revealing clothes myself this summer, but so far I haven’t even been able to wear skirts that go above the knees. I’ve never worn anything that reveals the stomach either. And it’s all because I find it so embarrassing, of course. Is the embarrassment factor something you get over as you keep wearing clothes like that more and more?”
Natsuyaki: Right. Well, for me, I just start naturally wanting to show more skin in the summer simply because it’s so hot. You know how foreign women wear like denim short pants with a camisole and stuff? That to me is so cute and stylish, but that kind of thing is… How do I put it? It’s not really accepted among Japanese people. That’s the problem. But you should just wear it anyway, and just think like, “I’m not in Japan!” That way you can have fun no matter where you are.
Nihei: But that’s not so easily done…
Natsuyaki: What? Yes it is. Just, stop caring about what anyone else thinks! (laughs)
Nihei & Ogata: (bursting with laughter)
Natsuyaki: (laughs) I mean, it’d be boring if you had to take other people’s opinions into consideration when choosing your fashion.
Nihei: Well, yeah. That’s true.
Natsuyaki: Right. So you should wear whatever it is you want to wear. But the listener is saying that she feels embarrassed about showing a lot of skin — and no wonder if she’s only worn knee-high skirts so far. You could start by choosing skirts that are a little bit shorter, or wearing something that reveals your shoulders — that’s something that’s “in” this year. So yeah, do that. Do it little by little. I’m sure it’ll get less embarrassing as you keep doing it.
Nihei: Right. Doing it little by little.
Natsuyaki: But then there’s… how should I put this? Well, there are some girls who will seriously have their boobs out!
Nihei & Ogata: (bursting with laughter)
Natsuyaki: I don’t really like that sort of thing… Hmm? What is it? I’m serious, there really are girls who want to have their boobs out!
Nihei: (laughs) There are, there are.
Natsuyaki: You all know what I’m talking about, right?! I wonder if the listeners know the type of girls I’m talking about? I would think lots of people agree with me. lt’s like those girls are all thinking, “these are all I have!” I guess to them, that’s like their charm point, or appeal point, or whatever you call it. And I think that’s fine, too… but if you want to look cute, exposing your shoulders and stuff really brings out that womanly… what would you call it, lavishness? I think that’s the best way to do it. Showing those body parts more.
Natsuyaki: Shoulders. Wrists. Ankles. Showing those parts definitely makes you cuter, and it makes you look more womanly. That’s what I would recommend doing.
Nihei: Hmm. True.
Natsuyaki: But if you overdo it and it’s almost to the point where people can see your butt, that can make you look indecent. So you shouldn’t do that.

That’s because you have no boobs to put out yourself.

“My big sister is 23 and even she still bathes with our dad.”
Source: Young Town.
Maopin says she gets scared if she’s in the bath by herself. She always bathes together with someone else — primarily her father.

Hey, Mao’s dad: it’s okay to bathe with your daughter only up until elementary school.

I agree that elementary school is the limit, but…
Dad: “Hey, you’re a junior high schooler now. How about you start bathing by yourself already?”
… If I was asked that, I kinda get how it’d be hard to come up with a good answer… (laughs)

No matter which song of theirs I listen to, it’s like I can only hear Sayashi and I just start to cry. I can’t believe that such a cute living being could actually exist in the real world. I was talking to a friend on Twitter the other day and that’s when he told me about Sayashi… I’d like to ask him a couple of hard questions as to why the hell he didn’t introduce me to her when she was still an active member.

I only got to know about her a month before her graduation so I only just barely managed to shake hands with her — even though I knew almost nothing about her. I was a complete newbie, but I made a decision and I stuck to it.

Sayashi continues to be bait for attracting new fans.
Part Eleven: “Onda Riku! Kaedy! w-inds.! Wooow!”
Writers Yuzuki Asako and Asai Ryo
profile the lyrics of Hello! Project songs!
Song #1: Tsubaki Factory – “Just Try!”
Asai: Thinking about recent things that have moved me, the first thing that pops to my mind has to be “Just Try!“
Yuzuki: Amazing song. It made me laugh when I heard it.
Asai: “Samui samui iitatte atsuku mo naranu” (“doesn’t matter how much you complain about how cold it is — it’s not going to get any warmer“) — I must’ve told that to myself a hundred times this winter.
Yuzuki: “Shiranu ga hotoke na no ni yo no naka jouhou darake” (“ignorance is bliss, yet the world is full of information“) — did she see something unpleasant online or something? “Tanoshii toki wo sugosu houhou kimochi wo kirikaeru shika nai” (“the only way to have a good time is to change your attitude“). ♪ Hoooraaa hoooraaa… ♪
Asai: ♪ Fuuushiiigiii deeeshooo~ ♪
Yuzuki: That’s such a scary part of the song. (laughs) It sounds like the beginning of a nightmare.
— I would like to take this opportunity to talk to you two about the position of the leader of Hello! Project. My first question is to Yajima. How do you see Hello! Project now, a year after your departure? Does it seem different to you now as compared to while your were still a member?
Yajima: It does. I couldn’t see it objectively when I was a member. It was really only after my graduation and going to see Hello! Con that I came to realize how amazing it is. It’s very moving.
My fellow °C-ute member, Nakajima Saki, co-starred in a musical with ANGERME and she was telling me about how they were busy with all kinds of other work so they didn’t have a long time to rehearse for it. So then when I went to see the musical, I remember thinking about how great of a job they’d done in such a brief period of time regardless. And maybe it was the same with us when we were members, but it’s really only now, looking in from the outside, that I realize how amazing it is that they’re able to do all that.
— The speed at which they can learn things?
Yajima: Yes. I think if I was put in that situation now, my head would explode. But they can all pull it off. Same thing with Hello! Con — the quality is just so high. Even the girls in their teens are so much better at singing than we were at their age. I’m so much looking forward to seeing how they all develop in the future.

“The singer aiko apparently came this close to joining Taiyou to Ciscomoon. (Source: aiko herself, telling the story just now on Matsutoya Yumi’s All-Night Nippon.) Furthermore, she said that Tsunku♂ has actually given her advice on her own compositions, too.”

Oh damn! Tsunku-san was determined to have aiko in Taiyou to Ciscomoon after hearing her indies songs! (laughs)

Okay, I’m pretty sure this is something even the most hardcore aiko fans out there didn’t know.

I’m an aiko wota to the point that I’ve listened to pretty much every episode of her All-Night show and this is certainly the first time that I’m hearing about this.
