I didn’t bother to translate the entire article. I’m pretty sure we’re only interested on those 3 names there anyway and the article was mostly about everything else not directly related to Arashi :3
=D. Promotion has begun!
For the sake of Ohno’s parents too, Ninomiya makes a strenuous effort for the new drama!?
O: The director of Nino’s new drama is actually the director that I’m indebted to for when I was cast for last year’s “24 Hour TV” special drama “Kyo no Hi wa Sayonara” (Nippon Television)
N: Oh, really!
O: He’s a young director, and films really fast!
N: That’s good~
O: During this drama, will we be able to see Nino playing baseball?
N: No, that’s just the thing, I’m the role of the director. Have you seen a baseball drama where the director is enthusiastically playing baseball? (lol)
O: Oh, right. My mom like Nino’s dramas. I’m sure she’s looking forward to it
N: But the one she likes is “Freeter, Ie wo Kau.”(‘10 Fuji), right?
O: Yeah. My mom really likes “Freeter~”
N: But this is a totally different drama from “Freeter~”
O: It’s different, huh…
N: Yes (lol)
O: Then maybe my dad? My dad likes both Nino and baseball
N: Then maybe he would be able to enjoy it (lol). I’m grateful. For the sake of Ohno-family’s living room (lol). I will work hard to make it a good drama!!
O: Nino’s drama seem like there’s a lot of location
(it means to film outside of the set).Maybe there will be times where you have to wait for the rain to stop or for the clouds to clear…? During tsuyu season, it may be cloudy but then suddenly clears up and be like “the scenes won’t connect” and have to wait (grin) N: You’re saying it like it’s someone else’s problem, but Ohno-san, you’re going to be filming during the same period too, you know?
O: Yes…you’re right (lol). The production is called “Shinigami Kun”, and the original work is a manga.
N: Ara~. It sounds like it’ll be fun like “Dekabutsu Kun”
O: It’s “Kaibutsu”, “Kaibutsu Kun”(‘10 Nippon Television)
N: Oh. I see. Because I liked “Dekabutsu Kun”
O: It’s “Kaibutsu Kun”. How many times are you going to make me say it (lol)
N: And I also liked “Dai Maou”
O: It’s “Maou”(‘08 TBS)!
N: What kind of drama will “Shinigami Kun” be?
O: The details will be coming later. I heard of the original work, but I have never read it
N: It isn’t knee socks this time?
O: I will be wearing a black shirt with black suits, and a black hat
N: I’m looking forward to it. Dramas aren’t something you make by yourself, so there’s no point of becoming eager by yourself before. It’s after the script is done, and the scene starts…right

What’s something that makes you happy if it’s there at the new drama filming set?
O: I would be a bit happy if there’s something sweet like when I’m tired
N: What kind do you like?
O: Like chocolate bread. I like croissants with chocolate in it
N: Ah~, those kind of refreshments are being favored (lol) Ohno-san does like those ne
O: I do like them~! If I were to bring some refreshments to the set, it would probably be those kinds? There are preferences too, so I would prepare other flavors besides chocolate as well. Eating sweets when everyone is working hard until late at night is goodd
N: For me, it would be ramen
O: Can you have a ramen shop come to the set?
N: Yeah, I think you can. If I remember correctly, during “Freeter, Ie wo Kau” (‘10 Fuji), the “Freeter team” won a prize money from a show or something. We used that prize money to call a tonkotsu ramen shop to the set
O: Eeh~! That’s awesome!! Lately, I haven’t been able to eat tonkotsu ramen. I want to call them!
N: You seem excited (lol). The Ohno-san who talks about chocolate bread and tonkotsu ramen seems happy (lol)
O: Because, I can’t help but to be happy when I think about chocolate bread and tonkotsu ramen being at the set
If you were to give each other a present?
N: For Ohno-san, I would choose a fishing rod. But I would give him the money and tell him to buy whichever one he likes (lol). I would have him go buy it himself. I’m busier than you think (lol)
O: No, that’s fine (lol).
N: I’m sure Leader would want to use the new rod he wanted as soon as possible too
O: In the end, I think that’s the best present
N: Because I’m not confident in surprising with gifts. I don’t want to give something they don’t want either
O: That’s right! I can’t use ‘that’s wrong~’ kind of rod (lol). Even if I buy something with Nino’s money, I would use it carefully thinking, “This is the rod that Nino bought for me”
N: That’s right!
O: Yeah. To think about it, if I were to give a present to Nino, it would be a game console
N: Eh? What happened to “you can buy whatever you like”? (lol). As for game-related things, I already have most of the necessary things at my house so it’s okay
O: Even the newest ones!?
N: I would probably get it before anyone else, so it’s okay (lol)
O: I won’t lose!
N: No no (lol). Well, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have multiple game consoles
O: Right~! I would give it to you with a small TV too
N: A small TV, huh
O: The TV at Nino’s house is big, right. Put my small TV in front of the main TV, and you can play 2 games on the small and big ones at the same time! I’m sure it’ll be fun
N: To tell you the truth, that arrangement has been the lifestyle for over half a year now. At my house, you can play games in three different directions while sitting down: big, small, and portable.
O: Eh~!! That’s amazing. It’s just like you that you were already doing it
N: If Ohno-station were to be added, I would be able to proceed to playing games in 4 different directions~
O: Then what about bath version?
N: Ah~, that place hasn’t been established (lol). Can I ask for the game console to be small-sized console too?
O: I’ll add a plastic bag so it won’t get wet!
N: Would I be able to see the screen? (lol) No, I’m grateful. For thinking so hard (lol)
