(Note: English transcript below.)
Moshi Moshi, Momochi desu
This is the corner where I call my listeners and speak with them one-on-one. […] The first person I’m calling goes by the nickname of Hatsukoi Cola. He’s from the prefecture of Kyoto. He writes that he has “something important” he needs to discuss with me that “affects his entire life.” Well, let’s call him then!
L: … Yes?
M: It’s Momochi!
L: Wait, for real?
L: Seriously? … Good evening.
M: Good evening. This is Momochi.
M: What? Are you disappointed?! (laughs)
L: No. This feels like a miracle.
M: That’s right! You’re speaking with Momochi herself! Were you asleep?
L: No, I was awake…
M: What were you doing?
L: I was eating lunch.
M: I see. What was on your menu?
L: Chilled pasta.
M: Chilled pasta?! That’s pretty fancy. Oh, by the way, I read your email. In it you said there’s a girl you’ve liked for quite some time now. You wrote that you think about her so much, you can’t even properly concentrate on studying for your exams. So you’re that in love with someone?!
L: That’s right.
M: Let’s hear some details!
M: What kind of a girl is she? Tell us all about her.
L: Well, I’ve liked her for about five years now…
M: Ooh, five years! That’s great! And?
L: Um… that’s it.
M: (laughs) Aren’t you being kind of cold to me?!
M: Oh well. What should we call this girl? Hmm… Let’s give her the nickname of “Chinami-chan.” So what about Chinami-chan made you like her?
L: Her endless cheerfulness.
M: Her “endless cheerfulness…” That actually fits Chinami-chan pretty well. (laughs) I see. So when did you first feel that you liked her?
L: It was from the time I first set my eyes on her.
M: Wait, so you’re saying it was love at first sight?! That actually happens in real life?!
L: Yes. Have you never experienced it yourself?
M: Momochi is everyone’s idol — I’ve never been in love.
L: So that’s how you’re going to play it…
M: (laughs) That’s how it is, yes. And, so, what? You can’t even study properly because of this girl?
L: Yes. That especially is a big problem for me.
M: So now you’re in… around your third year of high school perhaps?
L: No, I’m between high school and university.
M: Ah. How old are you?
L: I’m 19.
M: 19? So you’re younger than me.
M: I see. How should I advise you on this matter…? Well, is there any chance this girl could also have feelings for you?
L: No. That’s 100% impossible.
M: No chance at all?!
M: Why? Does she have a boyfriend?
L: I don’t really know.
M: Do you exchange emails with her?
L: I don’t. But it’s not that I actually want this love to come to fruition — at this point I really just want to forget about her to be honest.
M: Huh?! You want to forget about her?! Even though you’ve liked her for five long years?
L: Um… is it okay to say something?
M: Go ahead.
L: The girl I like… it’s actually you.
M: …… Oooh…! Okay… How should I react to this? (laughs) I had no idea it was me you were talking about! (laughs) I see. So you want to forget about me?
M: But, you see, unfortunately I’ve already called you — it’s probably going to be next to impossible for you to forget about me now…
L: I’d already forgotten about you a little bit though.
M: Wait. What?! Is it just me or are you being really cold towards me for some reason?! Anyway, yeah, continue.
L: I want to hate you.
M: You want to hate me?
M: I see… Um. So maybe if I go like, “I hate you!“, maybe that would make you hate me as well…? (laughs)
L: I’m actually pretty serious about this being a real problem for me.
M: Ah, so you’re saying I need to think about this more seriously, too, right? But, you know, I have to be honest: I don’t really want you to hate me. I can’t deny that.
M: By the way, what was it about me that made you fall in love with me at first sight?
L: I thought you were really cute in the music video to “Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!“
M: Ah! I was really cute in that one.
L: They captured you really well in that PV.
M: Wait, so, what, does that mean I’m not as cute outside of that PV?
L: No no no, you were just especially cute there.
M: Oh, okay. So I just scored a clean hit with that PV. Well, what should we do about this problem?
L: Huh? Do I have to think up a solution myself?
M: Okay, yeah, I can’t ask you that… But hey. You’re making this out to be this really dark problem for you when in fact your original email was really upbeat and had loads and loads of smileys. I didn’t realize it was something this serious.
L: Ah, really?
M: Just, try not to overthink it. Do you attend our live concerts and stuff, by the way?
L: I do.
M: What you should do is just come to our concert and be all like “ah, I really love Momochi…” Then you go home, you switch those feelings off and you concentrate on studying.
L: Yes, I know that’s what I should do. What I’m saying is: I can’t.
M: Don’t be so angry at me! (laughs) This isn’t easy for me either, you know! Well… okay, how about I send you some words of support?
L: Okay, yeah. I’m fine with that.
M: You’re “fine” with that?!?
L: I mean, this is getting long so maybe we should wrap this up…
M: “This is getting long“?! You’re making it sound like I’m somehow forcing you to speak to me! Okay, okay. Fine. Here’s your Momochi yell of support. Momochi, Momochi, mochi mochi Momochi! Waah! Well?
L: … It worked.
M: You’re lying. (laughs)
L: No, I’m satisfied.
M: Thank you.

Funny but painful. (laughs)

So this is what they meant by true love type fans.

This was so gross I laughed.

You can hear the disgust in Momoko’s voice when he reveals that it’s her the guy likes. (laughs)
11: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/03/31(火) 03:28:24.09 0.net
Gross. That said, I do feel jealous of this wota.

I’ve had a live phone call with my oshi — my 2nd oshi to be exact. But even though she is only my 2nd oshi I’m still deeply in love with her so I was super nervous.
14: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/03/31(火) 03:58:31.25 0.net
You’re in love with her even though she’s only your 2nd oshi? You’re weird. How do you sleep at night?

It’s amazing how obvious it is that this guy is still a virgin.
“Wota who ask me if it’s okay to oshi-hen,
they have no intention of actually doing so.
They just want me to beg them to stick with me.”

Top Yell, May edition / “Oshiete, Momochi-senpai”
Tsugunaga Momoko: “The people who ask me at handshake events if it’s okay for them to oshi-hen to some other member, what they really want me to do is just beg and plead them not to do so. I know they still love me. Once you’ve really fallen in love with someone, it’s going to take something pretty major to make that love disappear.”
12: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:06:15.63 0.net
She totally gets it.
16: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:10:33.21 0.net
She sees right through them.
7: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 16:59:30.63 0.net
Yeah, it’s the same as with the guys on Twitter who shout about how they’re going to quit being a wota. A week or two later, they’re back to posting reports straight from the venue.
28: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:52:20.94 0.net
There are people out there who ask the members if it’s okay to oshi-hen? (laughs) You’re kidding. I mean… really?! (laughs)
29: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:53:59.73 0.net
There probably are, yeah.
26: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:37:00.25 0.net
What Momochi means to say is: the people who do oshi-hen just go for it without making a fuss about it.
13: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/04/06(月) 17:07:11.54 0.net
Just proves how kind-hearted Momochi is, the way she didn’t end her sentence with “…so stop fucking asking me that question.“

Momochi is so cute when she’s right.
Henkka: Next time a friend asks me to help them with a house move, I’ll just give them a Henkka yell of support instead.

Maybe it’s just the difference in culture, but listening to the conversation it didn’t really seem that bad or gross? Like he kept it under control he coulda gone crazy and been all creepy, but he didn’t really say anything disrespectful?
I think it’s the fact she’s an idol and on a radio show so the percentage he will rejected is like.. 100%.. Others who love Momochi feel for him.. It’s cringy..
Nah, he handle it like a pro I would say. The best part was that he dropped the bomb out of the blue in the middle of conservation (like by the way Momo its you, we’re talking about) XD. All in all I would say that he was very calm and composed during the conversation, from mine point of view the whole thing was very sweet & funny.
Seriously, being IN LOVE with a girl you’ve only seen on TV is creepy. Charmed or vaguely smitten, I can understand. But in love to the point of not being able to study properly and wanting to hate her? Sorry, super creepy for me. Sounds like this guy could pull a John Lennon on her any time.
I think you mean john hinckley
Hinkley shot President Reagan. Mark Chapman killed Lennon.
Oooh, I feel kind of bad for the guy who is in love with Momoko.
If he’s 19 now, he was 14 when he began liking her – so it’s not creepy at all.
Well, at least he got to talk to her.
If Meimi called me I’d be to be far more cringy than this guy. Like a lot of stuttering and heavy breathing.
That guy that’s always standing behind Helga on Hey Arnold came to mind lol
Momochi has become more than a mere pro-idol. This is Jedi level
Momochi handeled this thing like a pro. But still the best comeback in this kind of situation goes to Kame-chan https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&list=PL9404226234359C9E&v=jxVZoRz4g20#t=30 damned be you Kazuya, to this day I’m jealous of you :/.
FFS Eri was seriously way too awesome…
Momochi is such a pro! That was great improvisation. I also find it odd how the Japanese people called it pathetic or gross; I found it fascinating and real in a way.
Momochi also impressed me at a Country Girls mini live, how she was directing both the other members and staff offstage. Wow!
I have to confess that I’m deeply in love with Momochi. I want her to scold me for being in love with “everyone’s idol”… lol
It’s impressive how she can handle every kind of conversation, even the most embarrassing ones!
”It’s amazing how obvious it is that this guy is still a virgin.”
Well… just as half of adult population of Japan. I think that our little wota is hardly something exceptional here.

As expected of Momochi. The way she handled that was, of course, perfect. And the second thing sounds spot on too.

Aitor is that you!?
I found him to be more cold than creepy but he is only 19. Momo handled it very well. As expected of a top idol ^_^
