Ohkura, Subaru, Hina and Ryo went back to Tokyo by flight directly after Hokkaido con ends that very night and the rest of the members went back to Osaka today instead.
So Yu-kun starts ANN without Tacchon and he's kinda sulking lol. And he's telling the listeners that since there's flight until late night in Hokkaido and only 1 day of concert in Sapporo, instead of doing a long distance radio show, it's Ohkura himself who decided to just go back to Tokyo and do the show live together instead. So he's supposed to land at 11.30 pm but Yu-kun could not get connected to Tacchon yet so even Yu-kun don't know what's going on right now lol. But card board from the staff said the flight departed slightly late so Tacchon may be a bit late lol.
So Yu-kun calls Tacchon. Phone got connected but got connected to voice mail lol. While dialing Yu-kun remarked that he's not used to the studio's phone since it's Ohkura who usually dialed and pushed the button lol. 2nd time, also not connected!
Yu-kun: For the sake of the listeners who are patiently waiting for us, I will not give up calling Ohkura-san! -dials again-
Voice mail again! Yu-kun left a voice mail lol. He left a very informal voice mail lol. Since he has to do title call already so he gave up calling for the time being and do the title call alone lol. Then he said that within this 2 and half years this is the first time he has to say “Saturday Special All Night Nippon” because usually it's Tacchon who usually said it lol.
So, Yu-kun had Ongaku no Hi today and he was in the backstage room the whole day. At that time, he received messages from his niece who went to eito con in Sapporo. She posted her super happy smile and her Tacchon uchiwa lol before the con. He said this is the first time he saw her thaaaat happy lol. She haven't told him her feelings about the con yet though XD.
LAWL, Yu-kun forgot that Tacchon is not around yet and when he do the mail introduction he waits for the part when the mail address is being said by Tacchon and so the studio is like …. for a few seconds until he remembers that Tacchon is not around XD.
So while talking, suddenly they receive a call!
Y: Moshi moshi?
???: Moshi moshi~ (girly tone)
Y: Eh?! Ummmmm... name, place please!
???: Osaka prefacture, Higashiosaka, Name is I-keep-on-crushing-foot-corn
Y: Lol what a nickname! So where are you now?
???: Right now I'm somewhere riding in high speed
Y: High speed?? You landed just now right?
???: Which is why I'm saying I'm in high speed now idiot! (XD Okay if you can't guess who it is yet then this caller is actually Kurako, the female alter ego of Tacchon lololol) I landed around 11.40 pm just now.
Y: So when are you going to arrive?
Y: Yurakucho studio!
K: Is that your business? (XD Gawd, Kurako is definitely bitchier than Tacchon lololol)
Y: It's OUR BIGGG business. It's your radio show yo!
K: … I want to talk about my fail story though
Y: Ah, ah, okay, so what's your fail story?
K: I want to go to the toilet but it seems that the place had changed and so I have no time and I just entered the car. Now, my bladder is about to explode. This is yellow talk but no yellow talk is allowed!
Y: lololol. Well, I think it's okay for us to talk like this while you're on the way
K: It's fine, that's what I'm trying to do now.
K: So what corner do we have today?
Y: We got ira ira janken today but last week our talk about body hair got so heated up so I wonder if we might as well just continue that.
K: I hate talks about body hairs.
Y: Eh? You hate?? So are you a girl?
K: I'm a girl.
Y: This setting is difficult! XD;; So what did you do today?
K: Today? I keep on battling foot corn.
Y: lolololol. It gotta hurt right?
K: It hurts. Um... sorry right now I'm on Rainbow Bridge, I can't hear you properly.
Y: XD. So, after you battled foot corn you stand on Sapporo Dome stage?
K: That... will be said later on. Miss I-keep-on-crushing-foot-corn is a fantasy. Dome con will be a reality story later.
Y: ?? I was talking to a fantasy?? XD
Y: So I think Miss I-keep-on-crushing-foot-corn is still listening to our radio so I want to warn her that the studio that we use today is not the usual one and is at the total opposite wing. And go to the toilet first before you enter studio lol.
Lol while reading all the letters, Tacchon rings the bell asking to be allowed to enter. He arrived! XD. Tacchon was all breathless lololol. He said he went to the toilet already lol. He said he didn't have time to buy any souvenirs but Hokkaido staffs had helped him to buy. But he was too rushed to bring the stuff and left it in car and so he'd give it to ANN staff in future XD.
Tacchon said he had lots of fun in today's con. And as usual his voice sounds raspy each time he do ANN after live XD;. He said he arrived in Sapporo the day before yesterday. He came much earlier because there's a lot of things (concert related) that he wish to check.
Y: I left you a voice mail! Did you listen to it?
O: I did. But it was so informal that it was like a message from a friend instead. But well, you ARE my friend so. I was expecting a joke or sth but it was toootally like your normal voice mail!
This time Tacchon is in charge of lighting and videos. He said when in charge of the lightings, you tell the lighting staff about how you want it to be and they will come up with a plan for it and then you go and check if it fits your ideas or anything you can adjust or change. This is not the first time he's in charge of this since he's interested in production of lighting and videos. He told the chief about it and thus the chief manager often lets him do it. So previously (before he took charge of the lighting), when he watch eito's con, he'd objectively try to look at it and think from fans point of view. “If I'm sitting there, I wish this is more like this, more like that etc” so from then on he decided that he wanted to be involved with production of lighting and videos. He didn't want to be like do the last reharsal and then say want to change this and that and create trouble to staff. So he told the manager that he wants to be involved earlier before plan was made so that minimal change and less trouble will be made.
Yu-kun said, he had never forgotten the first time he went to Eito con (Kanjanism). He went to greet eito backstage but didn't get to talk to all of eito because there's a lot of people. But Tacchon gave a gesture to Yu-kun (the OK hand sign) asking if he thinks the concert that they planned this time is okay (since Kanjanism tour is another production from Tacchon too). Yu-kun said he didn't come to judge them so loll.
O: No, no, I mean... I want to know from your point of view how it is! XD;
Y: But well still, do you think I can go and say “Don't do this, don't do that!”?? XD. But you made me happy nonetheless.
And Yu-kun gave a “good” hand sign. So from then on, Yu-kun realize that Tacchon is very much involved in concert productions but Tacchon said all Johnny's do that too so. Yu-kun asked this time what the other members other than Tacchon in charge of for the concert. Tacchon said the plannings are mostly made by him this time. But for the setlist all 7 members decide on it.
So Yu-kun being the gossip loving guy he is asked if the members kind of like fight when they decide on the setlist and Tacchon said well, we're all adults now lol so no.
O: But there are time when someone suggest something and then another member said, “Well, isn't xxx better?”. Then there'd be another member that'd go, “Regarding this, I have something to say. I think xxx song is better, xxxx is my reason so don't you think it's better this way instead?” and the rest will think on which idea is better. We don't have a member who'd be like, “I want xxxx and it must be xxxx!” so we don't fight.
Yu-kun said it's his image of Yasu but since Yasu wrote a lot of songs he wonders if Yasu would get heated up about setlist and have strong opinion about it. Tacchon said that Yasu is the other way around lol. He keeps on suggesting weird af stuff and members would be like, “You're really weird.” XDD.
O: What I think is interesting is that each time we decide on songs setlist, Maruyama-kun keeps on suggesting to add “Osaka Rainy Blues” for each tour. And when asked why he keeps on wanting to add it for each tour he'd say, “Because my dad likes it.” XD; The rest of the members are like, “It's fine that your dad likes it but there's concert flow (ORB does have a pretty downward mood and flow XD;) and there's a few thousand other people who came other than your dad too!” XDD (And they couldn't possibly add ORB for all tours XD)
So nowadays Tacchon can predict what Maru is about to say when he asked Maru's suggestion on song to add to setlist lol.
And so they played Osaka Rainy Blues on tonight's ANN. Maru dad, please listen to it! XD Yu-kun listened to this song a lot while creating songs for eito and he likes it from the moment the guitar intro of the song.
O: This song really suits Subaru-kun's voice. And even the hand gesture of the dance, most if not all the fans know how to do it and joins us when we do it. I love and and we all (eito members) like it too but this song is difficult to add most of the time because the moment you put this song on, the atmosphere of the concert totally change since this song has a very strong world view of it's own!
But Maru-chan keep on wanting to add this song. So the members are like, “How to tell him...” lol since they want to push forward the concept of the album and ORB is totally the opposite world view XD.
Tacchon said Sapporo is hotter than Tokyo now.
XD Lawl, there's a caller who trains to be an announcer at her school and Kura then keeps on making the announcer voice! XDDD. You annoying guy!
Kura announcing that eito will have 4 days concert in Osaka next week and Kiseki no Hito Single with Metrock footage. Yu-kun got overexcited lol.
They didn't say if ANN is going to be recording or long distance or on a break next week so I wonder if Tacchon will attempt to return to Tokyo like what he did today next week too. XD; Just, take care of yourself yah Tacchon.
