Androids have better performance than iPhones anyway. She made a good choice.

As expected of someone international like her. She realized how useless the Galapagos-ized iPhones are.

From this moment on, I’m a Chel wota.
The Recording Directors:
Hashimoto Shin (overall direction)
Taisei (ANGERME & Juice=Juice)
Yamao Masato (Country Girls, Kobushi Factory & Tsubaki Factory)
Kamata Koji (Tsunku♂ songs & Morning Musume ’18)
— “Taiki Bansei” was the first single for S/mileage after the group was renamed to ANGERME, making it a big milestone song for them. Did you already feel confident about the song during its production stage?
Hashimoto: Not only was it their first song after being renamed, it was also the first non-Tsunku♂-produced song we were putting out there.
Nakajima Takui’s original (Nakajima’s ska beat-based version of the song was completed earlier, making ANGERME’s version a cover even though it was released before the Nakajima version) was very powerful, and so our focus was to get the H!P version to sound as funky as possible. We ended up giving it one extra chorus, too, compared to Nakajima’s version. We got the arranger, Suzuki Shunsuke, to tweak the arrangement multiple times and it was recorded using as much live instrumentation as possible. We wanted to make it sound as lively as we could. Not having any solo lines in the song aside from the bridge was also another experiment.
Still, we were very worried if the would accept the song or not. Hearing the audience getting fired-up during the song’s first performance at the Hello!Con was such a relief to us… Having nothing to lose, we also submitted it as our entry for the ending song of “Mecha-Mecha Iketeru!” The fact that it was actually chosen was all thanks to the song’s power. So to us it’s a very a memorable song in many ways.

— Please tell us: in all honesty, how do you feel now about having left your position as the overall producer of Hello! Project?
Tsunku♂: Right. Well, I worry about the members in many ways. For example, I worry about them reaching their limit as singers, mentally speaking… That kind of thing. For better or worse, my producing method was… I would talk to them as someone who had also stood on the live stage. I’d talk to them about what I’d learned from having performed both at the tiny clubs as well as places like the Budokan or the Domes. I’d talk to them about both my failures as well as my successes. Sometimes I could be a bit strict with them when explaining their responsibilities as professionals, whereas other times I would deal with the problem simply by joking about it. I realize that it’s a different time and there are no right or wrong answers…
But yes, I would talk to them about those kinds of thing. I do at times worry if they’re having fun or not. I’m always praying for the happiness of my beloved disciples.

Morito: “Haa-chin, I love everything about you.”
Morito: “I don’t mean love in “that” way. I mean, I really love her.“
She mentioned her whiteness, her Kansai dialect, and her personality (not overthinking things, being serious when the situation calls for it, and her kindness). #fmfuji_ggg

Ogata has a laid-back personality. I bet it’s comfortable for Morito be around her.

Ogata accepts everything and she never gets angry. There must be a sense of security being in her company.

There’s never been a time in the past when someone of her type has become the most popular member. I feel like until now it’s been either the more calculative or just the very self-confident members who have become no. 1 in popularity.

Abe → Goto → Matsuura → Takahashi → Airi → Michishige → Sayashi → Sato.
I guess the closest thing to her would be Abe?

Part Eight: “Sukiyaki × Conveyor Belt Sushi = Preparedness to Live”
Writers Yuzuki Asako and Asai Ryo
profile the lyrics of Hello! Project songs!
Song #1: Morning Musume – “Sukiyaki”
Henkka: Seeing as there doesn’t seem to be an English translation of the lyrics to this song online, let me give you a summary.
“Sukiyaki” is a simple, heartwarming lyric about a girl who is bringing her boyfriend over to meet her family for the first time. It depicts the picture-perfect family as they wait for the boyfriend to arrive. Mom’s busy preparing for dinner — sukiyaki — in the kitchen, the little sister’s running out to buy ingredients that Mom forgot to buy, Dad nervously pretends to look busy reading the newspaper, and the boyfriend misses his train due to absentmindedly worrying if everything will go smoothly. Meanwhile, the protagonist is trying to figure out if her boyfriend would be mad if she was to chicken out and introduce him to her family as merely a “good friend” of hers.
When the boyfriend finally arrives, the whole family immediately takes a liking to him. Despite the dad’s earlier feigned disinterest, he takes a lead in excitedly running their little house party. The boyfriend quickly wins over the mom as well, by eating not two, not three, but four bowls of their dinner. The song ends with the protagonist thinking about how she loves her boyfriend and how reliable he is, while contemplating on how sukiyaki actually represents the “heart of Japan.”

All-Night Nippon 2018/1/4 late-night broadcast (featuring Fukumura Mizuki, Nakanishi Kana, Kanazawa Tomoko, Hirose Ayaka, Ogata Risa, Ozeki Mai)
Fukumura: My first time meeting with a senior happened unexpectedly. I was part of a training group called the Hello! Pro Egg and it was my first time visiting this particular studio so I didn’t know my way around. I was wandering about in the building all by myself, and it was… which floor was it? I think I was headed for the basement floor, but I had no idea how to get there. Then, out of the blue, Kamei Eri-san tapped on my shoulder from behind and she was like “come on, it’s this way.” That was my first time meeting with an H!P member. (laughs) I was so nervous, but her kindness made me fall for her.
Kanazawa: That’d make anyone fall for her!

As expected of Kame-chan.
