From the chance encounter till marriage---
My "love" words that I wish to send only to you

"Would you like to really, try falling in love with us?"

Beautiful bare skin and cool gazes..... Arashi with their gripping masculine bodies clad in a mature, seductive sensuality, tonight they invite you into the charming world of "love". Directly feel an honesty that is a little different from the usual 5 members, one that is wild & sexy, unpolished---

(between pages)
The Love Story,
that Arashi has spoken of

"We'll keep telling you that we love you..."
Romance talks that the five members embrace with different situations of "Encounter" "Confession" "Relationship" "Marriage". From those real words, their life-sized, bare emotions are made clear.


"Encounter Arc"

Aiba Masaki
I'd like to be thankful that we had the chance to meet.

The happiness of being able to meet someone, I feel that far more after that moment. I have friends who burst into tears, saying, "I'm so glad we knew each other" when they drink alcohol too (laughs). I'm thankful to the people I was able to meet as well, and I think a romance encounter will be the same too. Although it's amazing that we could meet amongst so many people, the fact that we're further captivated by something and it turns into, "I want to meet that person again", is an amazing thing right.

Matsumoto Jun
A true encounter is when you can see what's on the other's mind

I definitely never fall in love at first sight. Because I think that the moment you open up to each other, is when it will truly turn into a "meeting between people". When you converse properly with your partner and gain interest, then you'll like that person. I think with that Like building up, then it'll change into Love.

Ninomiya Kazunari
My ideal is to be able to meet someone I like

I can't classify the person I'd like into categories. Because I'm captivated by the whole atmosphere that person carries. An ideal encounter? Being able to meet the other person after I myself like her I guess. To be able, by coincidence, to meet a person that you've seen somewhere and have been curious about...... It'll be amazing if that sort of dream-like thing happens right (laughs).

Ohno Satoshi
The minute we meet, my heart's antenna lights up

For me, there are many encounters where after meeting and talking for a little bit, I'd think, "This is the one!" It's as though my heart's antenna lights up with a spark (laughs). In that sense, maybe I fall in love at first sight easily. But strangely, there hasn't been a a case where I'd think later, "This person's different from what I thought she would be!" So, to me, encounters are based on instinct. No matter what the situation is when you meet, when the sparks arrive, that's just how it is.

Sakurai Sho
An encounter is a connection of a chance meeting

A fateful encounter with a person you don't know at all rarely occurs right. That's why, the people you usually encounter are often someone's friends and such. When you think of it that way, an encounter is a connection of a chance meeting. That's why I'd like to cherish the connections with my friends. From such connections, to an extent, precisely because you're trying to meet people on your own, they must be important. That's what I think.

"Confession Arc"

Aiba Masaki
Confessing is a very important gesture

When I hear the word "confession", I recall my student days. I didn't have a cellphone yet, so I nervously called my partner's home, and was asked, "What business do you have?" by a person in the family (bitter laugh). After that I called her to the park, and was really nervous. If I confess now, maybe age-wise marriage will finally be entering my field of vision (laughs). That's why confessing is a very important gesture.

Matsumoto Jun
A daily confession is important as an expression of love

You'd imagine words like "I like you" and "Please go out with me" when you consider "confession" but, I think that's not the only thing it is. Because I think the essential meaning is the conveyance of your own feelings so, if we use something extreme, I think complimenting a person's clothes is a splendid expression of love. Even after becoming lovers, saying words that you usually can't say like "I love you" is a form of confession too I think. That's a very important thing isn't it. In actuality, I get so embarrassed I can't do it though (laughs).

Ninomiya Kazunari
When I want to convey my feelings, I'll confess

For confessions, I think that either the boy or girl can do it. When you really want to convey your feelings, you'll probably confess on your own at that moment right. But for me, just because I'm going to confess, doesn't mean I'm expecting anything after that. That's why I don't research the other person's feelings before I confess either.

Ohno Satoshi
I'll keep saying "I like you"

When I think, "I like her", I can't be around without conveying that. That's why my situations for confessions could be direct, over the phone, they vary. I don't plan any strategies at all, and because they're so sudden, I've had a lot of failures. Even so, because I like the person, I'll keep saying that I like her (laughs).

Sakurai Sho
The timing of a confession is the battle

When I was in high school, I called the girl I liked to the park and confessed. And, I was rejected magnificently (bitter laugh). The timing of a confession is the battle right. There are times when you should let the relationship grow a little bit further, but if you let it drag for too long after knowing her she could become just a friend too.... it's tough.

"Relationship Arc"

Aiba Masaki
I want to be kind, and to be cheerful

Clearly, because I always want there to be an exciting moment, surprises are required for that. Birthdays, and surprises that will make my partner happy with small things. I think it's important to do something together too, so I'd like to cherish that. I want to be kind, and I want to date the person cheerfully. Clearly it's because I like people huh.

Matsumoto Jun
I want to become positive when it comes to romance

When the positive feelings of "like" increase, you can become kinder to the people around you right. You'll be asked, "Did something good happen lately?" Just like that, it'll be a blessing if we could be positive with one another when we're dating too.

Ninomiya Kazunari
The distance won't become a hindrance

Rather than meeting a lover everyday, I want to meet that person when I think I want to meet her. If it's a situation where we can always meet, then I wouldn't want meet her that much and, if the girl happens to live around the region of Africa instead then I may always feel affection for her. There may be people who can't stand long-distance romances but, I'm fine with that. After all, you're dating the girl, not the distance. It's important how much you care for each other, so the distance won't become a hindrance.

Ohno Satoshi
I want her to gut the fish that I catch

When we're dating, it's fine if we can meet about once a week. Look, if we meet up too much then it feels like we'd be laid-back and spend the day all lazy right. So, it's more fun if we plan the date properly, focus on that one day and play to our heart's content. And the time for my hobbies are important too so, if the girl has interest in my hobbies, I'll be even happier. For example, what do you think of having her gut the fish that I catch (laughs)?

Sakurai Sho
How you interact with your partner is important

It's fun to meet as a pair but, if she's my girlfriend, I'd want to introduce her to my friends, and I'd want to meet her friends too. If we can both get into it, we may be able to collaborate with each other's friends (laughs). Also, as lovers, regardless of whether it's a boy or a girl, as a human being, I think it's important to consider how you can interact.

"Marriage Arc"

Aiba Masaki
I want to create fun memories with my children

If I talk about the ideal marriage life, I want to be a couple who can always hold hands while walking. When we have children, I'd like to go out as a family. When I was a child, I was taken on trips every summer vacation, so those have been left as great memories. For my own children as well, I'd like to create lots of fun memories for them too.

Matsumoto Jun
I'd like to see my own children someday

The other day, I heard a great thing from an acquaintance. That a couple who have been married for many years and have children, always go to the same coffee shop. And, in the car, the two seem to have an enjoyable talk, while drinking coffee..... wonderful isn't it, that sort of couple. I'd like to see my own children someday too, and I'm really curious, as to how I would be like when I bring my children to eat out and such.

Ninomiya Kazunari
You can't tell unless you actually do it

I don't think that anything big will change if I wanted to get married. That's why, whether to get married or not, that depends on my partner. Besides, I can't tell if I don't get married. In actuality, it may be very fun though right.

Ohno Satoshi
I'll do anything for my children

I haven't thought about marriage at all but, I'd like children in the future. If I do have children, for those kids, I'd like to do anything for them. I think, I wouldn't care about myself anymore (laughs). But, if I have a girl and she tells me, "Dad, you're annoying," I'd probably be in great shock (bitter laugh).

Sakurai Sho
If we share compromises

Marriage is a merging of values I think. Because no matter how similiar a family environment two people may be raised in, there isn't anyone who has the exact same values, so the compromises shared with each other are important. I thought that after meeting the grandfathers and grandmothers in "Mago Mago Arashi". There are many people in the past who were married through connections of family allies without romance but, they've forgiven and accompanied each other for several decades. Surely, that's what marriage is.

Refreshed from a shopping trip that he hasn't been to for a while

The other day, I went shopping which I haven't been to for a while, and I bought a hat, T-shirts and underwear. The hat is a grey hunting cap. I really like it, so I wear it everyday. The clothes have this secondhand feel to them, and the design is cute. Because I usually go through people I know to buy things, a wander around the shops sure was fun.

Memories of exams

[C-Cut off, I can make out some words, but not all. He went to a friend's house to study is my guess]

For exams, I always overcame them with endless spirit (laughs). When it overlapped with my dramas, I'd sleep on the way home from work in the car, then head straight to my friend's home to study. You see, I seem to get sleepy if I study on my own........... I ended up playing if a lot of people gathered for it, but when it's just two people, I concentrated pretty hard and studied.

Obsessed with network matches for a game

As always, I'm playing loads of games (laughs). Originally I like RPG but, the one I'm obsessed with lately is a soccer game. You can play matches on the network so, I enjoy the game by playing against friends, of course, and someone I don't know. To be able to connect with people whose faces I don't know through games is so strange that I'm excited.

Memories of exams

Take on the challenge of interviews with "My usual self"

The thing I recall when I hear of exams is the high school entrance exams but, the high school I got into wasn't a written exam, but just an interview. Without planning out any strategies for that interview, I battled with just my plain old self. When I was asked, "What are your future goals?" by the interviewers, I answered, "A professional baseball player", so I was laughed at a little but I passed it without any problems (laughs).

I had a relaxing new year's in the countryside

Because I haven't had the new year's vacation for several years here, I thought of returning to the countryside and spending a few relaxing days there when the new year opens, something I haven't done in 3 years. You know, I like the ozouni (rice cakes with vegetables) that my grandmother makes. My grandmother's house has a mochi-making machine, and the ozouni made from that are really delicious. I'll enjoy a new year's that's appropriate for a new year. (The interview was done at the end of December)

He failed with the study plan of creating a vocabulary notebook!?

When I first entered middle school, I made an English vocabulary notebook before the exams. But when I made that, it felt like I had studied, so the miracle of not doing anything at all occurred (laughs). After that, I tried the method of studying while listening to classical music that emitted alpha waves, but instead, I couldn't concentrate.....

He played golf, something he hadn't done for half a year!

When I went to play golf which I hadn't done for a year, it was really fun. Clearly, the scenery is great in the middle of nature, and the weather was good too. As for the score..... I never had the skills so, even if I didn't play for half a year, it doesn't change much. But, I was a little bitter that everyone had gotten better (laughs).

It's best to study lots normally!

When I was a student, I'd focus hard and studying without sleeping about 2 days before when exams were coming. I thought that I'd forget if I slept (laughs). But because my mind couldn't work when I went there without sleeping, the results weren't very good. Clearly, the building up is important right. To all the readers, I hope you take this is a bad example and work hard by taking the steady path.

He bought the electric bicycle that he wanted!

Yesterday, I bought an electric bicycle. But the power of an electric bicycle is amazing isn't it! Although I haven't ridden it because I just bought it, I think you can really feel it when you put your luggage in, sprint with it, and climb slopes. It's being stored at a friend's house that's close to the ocean so, I want to hurry up and ride that to go fishing (laughs).

As a the project of a TV program, he studied kanji which he wasn't good at

About 4 years ago, I had to accept the kanji inspection as a project of a TV program, and for someone who's bad at kanji like me, it was a tribulation. At the same time, rehearsals for my stage play overlapped with it as well, so it was a tough period. Even so, I think I worked really hard on the problem sets that was given to me by the staff members. I was really relieved when I passed it (laughs).

*LOL* Poor baby. He's supposed to be a smart little Keio thing but no, he has all these moments of FAIL even in his studies.

Totally, oh man. (Though I'm tempted to have a window open with Ohno there, just to uh rest my eyes from time to time.)

You're very welcome!

I seriously need to learn how to gut a fish.

But Ohchan is so sweet about the children part. I hope his little girl doesn't think he's annoying either *aches from the sweetness*

And wow, Nino gets turned on by his games *raises an eyebrow*

Thank you for the translations Aki-gyoza *sqwuishes*
Jan. 25th, 2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
Alli-gyoza, we should go get a fishing license, a rod, bait, and go fish. Just so we can practise.

... okay, that's almost as bad as getting an XBox just to play HALO but hey, it's a lot cheaper to fish. |Db

I hope so toooo. I wonder if Oh-chan will just smack the kid if it was a boy. XDD Notice though, that he doesn't mention anything about his wife. *snrrrk*

HAHA gamer otaku to the core. *nods*

My pleasure~~ *squishes back*

I especially love Nino's talk about the long-distance relationship. It's so true. ;; Clearly, a girl must learn to gut fish, and also learn to love Ohno's eccentricity. *snrk*

You're very welcome, and yes it's fine, thank you for dropping by. ♥
