Kaitou Reinya, an anime featuring Reina, will begin airing on January 8, 2010. Reina did some promotions as well as press conference not long ago for the anime. It has been some time since she was sent on a press conference without the rest so she didn't know what to say at first. She didn't manage to deliver the details of the anime out well, but Reina decided to do it once again on this week's radio show. Kaito Reinya is a character based on Tanaka Reina. In the afternoon, Reinya works as a convenience store shop assistant. Reina didn't check with the staffs why Reinya is a shop assistant but she made a good guess reasoning that since she often says she wants to be a shop assistant, the staffs might had added in that detail into the anime too after hearing about it. At night, Reinya will become a phantom thief.

The highlights of the anime is the use of Hakata dialect and that it airs in Fukuoka. Reinya's lines are all in Hakata dialect but there are some mistakes in the usage of Hakata dialect in some parts of the script. Reina was supposed to correct it herself so she did it at home. As she thought about what would be the correct line, she got confused between standard Japanese and Hakata dialect. She consulted her mother since her mother isn't usually surrounded by people who uses standard Japanese. Both of them got confused and just edited the script without much confidence in the accuracy of their Hakata dialect. She is worried about viewers finding the lines unnatural.

One episode of Kaitou Reinya is 3 minutes long. As Reina continued talking about the anime, she wanted to say "announcement" (Yokokujou) but she confused herself and said "Juniors having control over seniors" (Gekokujou). One syllabus difference, but two completely different meanings ^^;

Morning Musume - Kimagure Princess

The toughest rehearsal Reina had was the rehearsals for Morning Musume Concert Tour 2005 Natsuki Baribari Kyoushitsu Koharu-chan Irasshai. The timings of the rehearsals were scheduled to fit Koharu's school time-table. The rehearsals were so tiring that Reina wouldn't have the energy to talk during meals but when they successfully completed the concert tour, they were all pleased with the accomplishment. With regards to that pain of the rehearsal, quoting from Reina, "If one can't overcome an obstacle, one won't be able do something great." At that time, Reina would talk to her mother to relieve her stress. Also, Reina watched her favourite TV shows that she recorded and laughed big time to de-stress.

In the past, the members often consult people (No idea who) about what sort of nail art they should use and stuff. Once, when Aichan said she wanted to paint her nails black, someone discouraged her from doing that. Reina thought it was pretty troublesome for those members back then when they even have consult others before putting on a new design. For Reina's nails, she has been doing themselves since back then without consulting anyone or going to any manicurist. Her current nail paint is black and no one complains about it. Recently, Reina is into putting on rhinestones. The troublesome point of rhinestone is when Reina washes her hair, it comes off. At some point of time back then, Reina stopped using them because it was really troublesome. Her reason for doing up her nails nicely is that whenever she looks at her cute nails, it makes her happy.

Big Bang - Lollipop
High King - Destiny Love

On the day of the recording of this week's show, Reina slept for twelve hours. She woke up twice though, to get herself a drink. She hasn't been having such pleasant sleeps lately with all her sudden waking up in the middle of the night. It has been some time since she last had such a long sleep. After she woke up, she wanted to sleep a little more but she had work so she didn't get a choice. If she didn't have work that day, she would probably go back to sleep.

She had a dream. According to Reina, her dad has two siblings. Reina dreamed of her dad's youngest brother who has two children and is in his thirties. Her uncle asked her out to play but she refused and after she asked why the invitation, her uncle said that they were going to hold a celebration for Junjun's birthday. She knew that her uncle has never met Junjun needless to say to even know her and that it wasn't Junjun's birthday that month. Well, its all a dream. A dream that Reina doesn't understand why on earth were both her relative and fellow Morning Musume member in the same dream.

There are laces on Reina's princess double-bed. The laces are being a hindrance and Reina thought of removing them. Unfortunately, the laces weren't detachable. It wasn't a good idea either because if she removed them, her bed would look like just any other bed.

Reina received a set of speakers not long ago which she is currently using when she listens to music as she sleeps. She usually falls asleep even before the first track finishes playing. Even though so, she still prefers to sleep with music that overlaps the sound that fridges and televisions make every now and then. Reina created a new four word idiom called "Kikaigenshou" (機械現象) Instead of the "Mysterious phenomenon" which is "Kikaigenshou," (奇怪現象) Reina called the weird noises "Machine phenomenon" which is also called "Kikaigenshou." (機械現象).

With that, Reina gave five stars to sleeps, which is important to man.
