Massu radio show translation

Happy Birthday to Takahisa Masuda and Jin Akanishi!!!

It’s July 4, which means Massu is 24 and Jin is 26 today!!!  Congratulations~~~

There was not much news about either of them, so I thought it would be cool to translate some bits from Massu’s radio show.  Enjoy!

July 2 report

Master Hits with Takahisa Masuda (NEWS)

Massu (M): Takahisa Masuda’s Master Hits

I’ll be talking till 11:30pm so I hope you have good time

This week’s NEWS

In another two days Takahisa Masuda will turn 24

This year my birthday’s on Sunday…oh!  Is this a present? (from radio station staff)

Thank you

It has “shumai” written on it…

Is it alright open it now?

Thank you, yay…

I got a cake now too…thank you

I wonder…there’s a “Happy Birthday” message on it, but there’s a lot of space left…why couldn’t you have written “Masuda” here?

But anyway, I’m happy…

Shumai…they look special.

Can I eat them?  And the strawberry…yes…this is good.

Thank you

12 shumai…I’ve just eaten two…and I hope to eat them little by little…until they’re all gone by the end of this show…

Okay, now I feel like calling someone to get some more congratulations, maybe (Keiichiro) Koyama.


Koyama (K) answers phone: Yes?

M: Hello, Koyama?

K: Hello, who is this?

M: Masuda, Masuda

K: Ohhh, far, you gave me a fright

M: Lol, sorry, sorry.  I’m using the studio’s phone to speak to you

K: What, freaky

M: So, today is July 2

K: Yeah

M: Do you know what’s happening in two days?

K: Shouldn’t you be telling me what’s happening?

M: Do you know?

K: Huh

M: Today’s the eve eve of that day

K: Oh, oh, it’s Akanishi’s birthday right?

M: Ohh, yup yup, it’s the same birthday, but it’s someone else who is closer to you

K: What?  What?  Do I say it now or something?
M: Anyway, it’s my birthday special so

K: Actually, isn’t it amazing I answered the phone at this time of the day?

M: It is, and I called from the studio…from a number you didn’t know.  What were you doing?

K: What, me?

M: What were you doing?

K: I was at home reading the newspaper

K: I’ve never been to your studio

M: That’s true, you’ve always been talking via a phone

K: Invite me some time

M: Shige and Tegoshi have come before, can you come over now?

K: You sound like Johnny-san…stop it

M: Can you make it out to Chiba?  He (Johnny-san) once asked me to come out to Hakone when I was in Johnny’s Jr.

K: Lol, and did you go?
M: Yes, I went


(answering a listener’s question)

Q: What part-time job did you wish you could have done as a student?

M: If I were a girl I would’ve wanted to work at a bakery…

I wanted to try a part-time job…

Checkout counter?  I wanted to try that…

Like, at a fast food restaurant…

‘Hello, so that’ll be one M-sized orange juice and,’…say all of it, but I can’t remember it all so I’d write it down on paper…can I do that?

And then I’d go to the back and make the food…can I do that?

Then the customer would go away thinking that they just got served by a really useless guy, but then they’d eat the food and it would be so amazing they’d think about coming again…


M: So, tonight’s show was a birthday special…Koyama wished me happy birthday, and the staff here gave me a cake and some shumai…

Thank you.  There are currently, two to go.  They’re so delicious.  And I’ve ended up eating all of them myself.

But I think I’ll share the cake with everyone…

So, my birthday’s on Sunday…and I’ll do my best to make my 24th year a wonderful one…

Please tune in again next week.  This was Takahisa Masuda from NEWS.  Byebye.

    Massu is so kawaii!! He’s my second favourite member of NEWS, the first being Yamapi. Actually they are tied, I can’t tell who I like more these days. 🙂

      Massu is my fave Johnny’s talent XD It says so on my fan club profile too, lol.

      A lot of my friends are huge Yamapi fans and I hope I can go see his concert next year with them d(^-^)
