Sato-san often teaches us 12th gen proper dance steps and ways of keeping the beat.
A while back she even made us a CD to practice our sense of rhythm with. (；＿；)
Her kindness knows no limits. (；＿；)
It was for real.

She “made” it? What does that mean? She literally used some digital audio software to make her own tracks?

It’s just a CD of Maa-chan going “tantaka tantaka” over and over again.

Back when Oda didn’t have a blog yet, Maa-chan would post announcements of Oda’s upcoming handshake events on hers. She takes surprisingly good care of everyone.

The fact that she says nothing along the lines of “I really learned a lot thanks to her!” makes it obvious Maa-chan’s CD was impossible to understand. (laughs)

Nonaka will probably go back and listen to the CD again in three years or so and start crying out of gratitude when she finally understands it.

I started to cry just thinking about Maa-chan setting up the mic, editing her music on the PC, going out to buy CD-R’s and burning it for the members. (つд｀)

I really wonder how she actually made those CD’s.

109: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/01/25(日) 00:04:55.76 0.net
She might’ve made those CD-R’s different for each of the four members, adjusting the difficulty according to the skill level of the member in question…

Maa-chan is someone who was this close to pursuing the path of a piano instructor. It feels like she’d be pretty good at teaching someone about music.

This why I was always trying to tell you guys: this girl really is something special.
17. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年01月27日 19:44 ID:aaqmswSK0
A bit of a dated reference, but I guess she’s the Nodame type.
3. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年01月25日 08:55 ID:RlYMjYeh0
J-pop is based around the vocals, so most of the members are people who listen especially to the vocal melodies and lyrics when listening to music. Maa-chan, on the other hand, used to play drums, meaning she can pick out detailed nuances in other sounds as well. I think someone being “knowledgeable in music” is about being able to hear those other instruments and the many overlapping rhythms in a song.
18. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年02月08日 13:30 ID:Jo4OvTzr0
What really struck me about this is not only learning how creative she is, but seeing how she didn’t do it to brag. She did it all for the sake of 12th gen, and she hasn’t made any mention of this on her blog which makes it doubly cool. Sure, Sato Maa might be someone who normally has a tendency to boast, but I don’t think she’s going to do that until the 12th gen have actually learned something from her. Must be in some part thanks to how her parents raised her.

Seeing that problem child growing up to be such a fine young girl… this to me is the real pleasure of watching over Musume. It’s a tradition that started with Nakazawa throwing her chopsticks, way back when.
“Lately Sato-san is constantly
making music when she’s at home.
It’s like her side job.”

Topic: things you want to learn from the other members.
The genius of Sato. Lately she’s always making music when she’s at home. It’s almost like a side job for her. She does programmed drum beats, EDM, vocal things, key modulations… she says stuff like “if you lower this sound and raise this one, you can really hear the rhythm.” Our manager asked her to make something for the 12th gen to practice their sense of rhythm with, and already the next day she came in, having made it. She was laughing and saying that at her next birthday event she’s going to come on stage using her self-composed music as her entrance music.

Though it may be easier now than in it used to be, making music on the computer is so hard that even I gave up on it. So from my point of view, I really admire her.

Wow. Her talent is giving me goosebumps… Regardless of the actual quality of the songs she makes, just the fact that she has an interest in it and isn’t giving up is amazing in itself. Ahh, I really want to hear them! This girl really is a genius after all.

I was just your typical music fan with no interest in idols. Now I feel like I finally understand why I suddenly got so interested in Maa-chan.
32. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年02月08日 14:56 ID:I3U531IB0
H!P really does have the power of bringing music fans with no interest in idols into this world. I hope they’ll always be able to hold on to this part of H!P. At any rate, there was a time when I felt slightly worried that Maa-chan might end up graduating without ever really fully blossoming, but I see now that she’s already begun showing signs of her genius. Amazing.

Before long we’ll have her there sitting down with the others at the trackdown sessions on MUSIC+.
Henkka: I can already see it. Ten years from now when Tsunku starts thinking about his eventual retirement and looking for his successor, he forces Nakajima Takui and this special girl into songwriting competitions, each of them pushing the other further and further creatively, constantly outdoing each other, eventually creating between them a rivalry not unlike Lennon-McCartney.
I’m calling it now.

I always said that Maa-chan is genius, but I never take it seriously
However, after I read this topic, I have to say “Maa-chan is really genius”
This girl is so special beyond what I expected
Thanks for your translation
I would add Reina to this future prediction
Reina wold be the subject matter of 90% of the lyrics.
Thanks for the translation. Damn. She’s really a Nodame.
Imagine how awesomely weird Hello Project would be if Maa-chan were running it.
At the very least, Tsunku♂ should hire her to make the next rhythm game.
Good point. At least throw in a few tracks of hers.
I’m not normally a fan of preordering things, but I’d preorder the shit out of some Maa singles.

I still fear this might happen, or that something like Kago-syndrome might come upon her. But right know I feel she is srsly beyond me!
Maachan, no matter what, from now on you’ll have my eternal trust. Yume Miru Maachan 15-sai.
That was awesome. Thumbs-up to machan. I truly respect her now…
H!P management should pick up on this and try to showcase it. Nurture it.
Riho may be the famous center and Sakura is known as the diva, but Maachan is H!P’s revolutionary.
(I was going to say ultimate/secret weapon, but everyone already knows that. Also, she’s not just a weapon, she is a Creator.)
Remember when everyone was calling her stupid for her test scores? 17/100 best of the year or something.
I’m pretty sure that was just a case of, “This doesn’t interest me, so I’m not going to do it.”
Ten years? I say it will happen within five.
I bet she got spanked by her management later on.. They’ll be like.. ” Didn’t we told you to play the dumb chara you little **** ? ” and she will be like ” But I.. But I.. They’re the one who posted it online! Not me? ” and the management will be like ” Now you must pay… ” *spanks*
“ay bruh check my mixtape” – Maachan
Thanks for this epic post, translation genius Henkka
Seriously, if it wasn’t due to management’s favoRihotism, Maachan could have been the real ace by now.
OMG, the comparision with Nodame is so accurate!!
“As expected of the girl who’s called the ultimate weapon of H!P.
I hope the office raises her with proper care.”
Some girls in H!P want to be Kirari from Kirarin Revolution. Maa-chan wants to be Sana from Kodoma no Omocha.
I always know she contains a lot ot artist/ musician instinct and has skills to deliver. But I dont know how much she knows them theoretically. Knowing that she can compose something at the age of 15 makes me really proude of her. Not mentioning how carring senpai she is.
This girl is not only the special one for H!P, but for entire universe of idol since it has begun.
so this girl has perfect pitch, perfect rhythm, and plays the piano and the drums?
clearly, Maachan is a musical Rain Man
wow, maachan mastermind ace,,
now im hoping she will takeover H!P music production in the future :D
Mixing assistant: Maybe if we lowered the bass and adjusted the…
Tsunku: We tried all that stuff, it didn’t work, we’re missing something I just don’t know…
Mixing assistant: Well, what do we do? Go to New York?
Tsunku: No…Maa-chan’s house.
Mixing assitant: Oooooohhhh Nnnooooo!
Tsunku: I know.
I think it’d be more like the story of the shoemaker and the elves. The producers would be struggling with a song, and, while they’re sleeping, Maa-chan would sneak into the studio at night to fix it up.
I like genius Maachan a lot more than brat Maachan.
Woah. Yeah, there’s not much else for me to say about this.
> eventually creating between them a rivalry not unlike Lennon-McCartney.
I once had this vision of looking at the back of an H!P CD and seeing the writing credits for all the songs given in that style… I have now recognized that my prediction for the specific names was way off though.
I had no idea. I thought she was just an eccentric girl. I have a new found interest in Masaki based on this.
Every genius is eccentric.

Hell, I can compose music too. It may be shit, but still I can claim I write Music.
But no one, particulatly a figure like Tsunku, will ever acknowledge your shit music instinct; and no one will ever assign you, like MM management, to compose and burn CD of your musical piece of shit to teach rhythm to a generation of idols.
That’s my oshimen for you! ^^
Thanks for the translation, Henkka! Maa-chan has been quiet lately, I missed her.
“It’s a tradition that started with Nakazawa throwing her chopsticks, way back when.”
Hey, what is it?
I find Maa-chan extremely irritating but I’ve got to admire her for this :P
Producer: Michishige Sayumi

I m pretty sure out of all posts }3 is closer to the truth.
Something like ma’s going tontokaton over and over.
I think she might be an autistic.
Maybe even autistic savant. Something is very off with her.
I can’t help but laugh at all the wotas making her out to be some super genius.
and 4 years laters(from this thread posted) she already showcasing one of her song
I’ll just leave this here.
The song is just as clever, intriguing, and charming as its composer.
