Konya mo Usachan Peace #167 (2010.01.13)

Friday, January 15, 2010

Due to work commitments, Sayu was not able to attend her coming of age ceremony. However, her dad didn't let it pass just like this. He sent Sayu a letter Sayu wrote to the 20-year-old her when she was 12 years old. Sayu read the letter and praised the younger her for the beautiful handwriting. The letter was written with pencil and Sayu could see some of the marks left by the pencil although she erased it and rewrote it. She was impressed by the tidiness of the 12-year-old Sayu. The younger her briefly asked how the current Sayu is doing now and stated that she wanted to be a poet or doctor when she was 12. [The staffs can be heard laughing in the show when Sayu said this] Sayu had completely forgotten her ambition of being a poet until she read the letter. Since young, Sayu liked to write poems. She still writes them in her diary entries nowadays. She remembers writing 2 poems which were titled "Piano" and "Triangle" whereby she submitted them for a competition and "Triangle" was published in a newspaper even though Sayu was more confident of her "Piano" poem which was written in the shoes of a piano. Sayu thinks that that win was probably what that encouraged the 12 years old Sayu to dream of becoming a poet.

Morning Musume - Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai

A fan sent in a mail to Konusapi telling Sayu that his friends are starting to like her too. Sayu sounded very surprised and is aware that she is gaining haters lately.

Aichan fell down in front of Sayu during this fall in a Nine Smile concert at the start of "SONGS." Other members and Sayu do fall at times but Sayu had never seen such a great fall in a Morning Musume concert. The first line of "SONGS," "Ikiru no ga Heta" which means "bad at living" happens to be Aichan's line. Sayu silently thought to herself that this person (Aichan) is bad at living indeed and laughed to herself during the concert. Although "SONGS" is a cool song, Sayu ended up smiling to herself throughout the performance at the thought of Aichan's fall. Even after the concert, when they had to change into their normal clothes immediately and leave the concert hall, Sayu laughed so much that her stomach hurt and she couldn't change out of her costume. She apologises for the impoliteness. Aichan was fine after the fall even though she took some time to get back on her feet had to be helped up by Eri.

A listener who reads Nakagawa Shoko's (Shokotan) blog noticed that Shokotan has the same outfit Sayu wore in this picture. Sayu bought the outfit when she was on a shopping trip with Aichan [She said "Big fall Aichan"]. Aichan recommended Sayu to buy it because she thought it looked pretty matching with the pair of shoes Sayu wore. On the day of the Konusapi recording when she wore the outfit, everyone she met told her its too flashy even Koharu asked Sayu if Sayu had something special on that day. She tried wearing it again on Christmas and again, she was told the same thing, making her feel embarrassed.

Another listener sent in about 2011, which is the year of the rabbit. Sayu got pretty excited reading out the ideas the listener has for Konusapi in 2011. He asked what is Sayu's goal for 2011 and Sayu was like "We just stepped into 2010 and he is asking for my 2011's goals?" Sayu finds it very amazing for her 22nd birthday [22 is the number for "Usachan Peace"] to land on the year of the rabbit.

According to Sayu, Koharu cares a lot about her skin pores and frequently comments on people's pores.

Out of all vegetables, onion is Sayu's favourite [Not carrots?]. She likes saag and cabbage too.

Morning Musume - Nakidasu kamo Shirenai yo
Sayu loves this song. Some members prefer "Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai" over this though.

Promotions for Hello! Project 2010 Winter Kachou Fuugetsu ~Mobekimasu~, Hello! Project 2010 Winter Kachou Fuugetsu ~Shuffle date~ and Morning Musume's 42nd single, "Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai."

Sayu: OyaSayumin!
If anyone's wondering why this week's translation is so short, its because they had the "Dajarenbo Shogun" corner.
