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.

At the end of the day, she’s still the oldest daughter of her family.

She hasn’t been able to blog lately because she’s been busy pulling all-nighters to make this CD for them.

In that case she’s been pulling too many.

Sato-san turns into a whole different person when she’s talking about music.

She might actually the member who most looks after the 12th gen.

Oda and Zukki apparently do so as well. Ikuta, too, but only at the very beginning.

Maa the professional and Maa the child. I don’t even know what she’s doing here, but whatever it is, it’s amazing.

I couldn’t help but laugh, imagining her all looking all focused while recording some song of hers.

At first she seemed reluctant to new members joining the group. I wonder what changed her mind?

Sato’s a strange one. She’s always doing something stupid whenever you catch her on video, but behind the scenes she’s actually looking after her juniors.

“Her kindness knows no limits. (；＿；) “
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.
97: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/01/25(日) 00:00:02.88 0.net
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｀)
103: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/01/25(日) 00:02:06.53 0.net
Can Sato really do that though?
I really wonder how she actually made those CD’s.
110: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/01/25(日) 00:05:08.08 0.net
Sato is actually quite digitally literate.

Sato is apparently a very proficient iPhone user. I don’t think she’d have any problem burning a CD.
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…

Sato’s music workshop:

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.

They need to do a Maa-chan Rhythm Lecture Course on Hello! Station.

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.

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.

That rhythm practice CD actually was something composed by her?! I didn’t expect that.

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.

This. It’s really, really bothersome. Even the fact that she has an interest in it makes her talented.

Oda: “Our manager asked her to make something with someone (from the management), but then before they could, she’d already made it all by herself.“
Wait, so she works faster than an actual pro?

Having it all done by the next day… yeah, she could very well be faster than a pro. (laughs)

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.
22. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年02月08日 11:45 ID:bjnjAnZ30
As expected of the girl who’s called the ultimate weapon of H!P.
I hope the office raises her with proper care.

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.
