Yamaguchi Tatsuya x Ohno Satoshi (2012 Premium Talk)

OHNO: I saw Yamaguchi-kun dance when I was about fourteen years old at their concert in the Budoukan. Can I be like this guy? I was like that (laughs). His dance was very powerful; he was flexible, he was very cool, and the acrobatics he performed in the centre of the stage was incredible.GUSSAN: I was probably 22 years old at that time? 23? I was doing acrobatics with Matsuoka. But I could also remember seeing it with Ohno. OHNO: Seriously?! GUSSAN: Before Arashi, weren’t you doing a lot of stage plays? I think it was at ‘Odoreru Hito (a play)’ that I did. OHNO: I was with Playzone! GUSSAN: After the play ended, I heard the name ‘Ohno’ again and again. Oh! I suddenly remembered— (laughs) Didn’t you do something in Kyoto? OHNO: Kyo to Kyo?! GUSSAN: Ah, yes! There. I’d already heard the name ‘Ohno’. I didn’t even have to see you to think that there was some good kid named Ohno. OHNO: Eh… GUSSAN: Are you surprised? OHNO: I am! I didn’t know you knew me then at all. GUSSAN: What was one of the first songs that you learned? For me, it was Hikaru Genji’s “In the Navy”. When I went to Osaka Castle Hall for practise, Johnny-san told me “Why don’t you play if you can do musical instruments?”. And so I ended up forgetting that dance completely. OHNO: (laughs) I remember my first choreography just fine—it was “TOKIO wo Yoroshiku!”. GUSSAN: Fufufu… OHNO: It was really hard! Like, when I performed for the first time at TOKIO’s concert, I remembered the dance perfectly, but it was so hard! There was so much smoke on stage! GUSSAN: Hahaha! OHNO: When I heard the cheers of the audience afterward, I realised that my mind had completely blanked out the entire time (laughs). I thought that maybe I should go home immediately, I was so scared. GUSSAN: You’re bound to be scared when it’s your first time. But don’t worry—you’re incredible (laughs).

1) Greetings - today is Tennen Combi - Mongolian Greeting meaning they have to smell each other for a long time. So Aiba-chan hugged Riida and pulled open the collar of his t-shirt and planted his nose against his neck/collarbone area. They stayed that way for a few minutes.

Result: A: Leader…

Alas, the day has come. The dreams of Ohmiya fans have come true.

So this is what that Twitter trend in Japan is all about.

During the Waku Waku 1st Run on June 29, Ohmiya had to stage a proposal. And according to Twitter reports, this is what happened:

N: Ne~

O: Otsukare

N: How long has it…

Yup he was out of tune when he was younger. Even the backtrack music can’t hide it. But you can hear and pinpoint where he developed his singing voice. It either improved after his west side story vocal training or they just have done better track sounds with each song. Personally I vote for the former.

Now I understood what he meant in his AD about having a vocal training for a month.

His voice has improved over the years and the West Side Story vocal training helped. But I think the training mostly improved technique and the talent was already there. Then time and experience added to the skill.

The out of tune thing we hear on the A.RA.SHI live performance was him singing as loud as/together with the backtrack when he shouldn’t have been (ie out of sync). Plus the best solo performances from him for me are the ones he did for Playzone (Deep Sorrow, True Heart) and those were done years before West Side Story.

And now Hillary Clinton will be taking your questions. Anything you want to ask the former First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and Smasher of Ceilings, now’s your chance. She’ll be providing answers live to Christiane Amanpour on CNN, on June 17th.

"Well that’s fun," you say. "But what distinguishes this Q&A from every other Q&A that has preceded it?" A brave question! Here is your answer: You can submit your questions in GIF form. Has anyone ever conducted an interview via GIF? Probably not! Go ahead and be the first. Plus, someone will probably make a GIF of Hillary Clinton answering your GIF. That’ll be a first, too. This is a big old pile of history happening right now.

Question for staff:  Is there a way we can block certain posts from you?  I hate all the political stuff you have been ramming down everyone’s throats and there is no way for me to not see them on my dash

誰?誰でつか? RL been occupying too much time that I still haven’t caught last week’s ep yet. Thought might have been Toma, but Maou was in 2008.

Cr: English jweb

It’s Tanaka Kei, Toma’s friend with the glasses that was having an affair with the sister in law.

it’s tetsuko kuroyanagi of tetsuko no heya who had a cameo in uta no oniisan too
