ARASHI

Masaki Aiba

A1. Masayuki Sakamoto (V6)

A2. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai)

A3. Kenichi Okamoto

A4. Shunsuke Kazama

A5. Masahiko Kondo.  I have a lot, but it does have to be Matchy-san.

A6. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO)

A7. Ummm, I don’t know…

A8. I think Katsuhide Uekusa (Shonentai).  He looks it.

A9. Yoshihiko Inohara (V6) I guess, yes (laughs).  That’s my image.

A10. Yu Yokoyama (Kanjani8), I want to go for a walk with him.

A11. “ガチンコ!! (Gachinko!!)”  I watched it a lot.

A12. “ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi)”

A13. “BEAT YOUR HEART” by V6

Jun Matsumoto

A1. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids).  Since when I was his back dancer I thought he was good.

A2. Go Morita (V6).  This was a really long time ago, and I don’t remember if he was good or bad, but I remember thinking he looked so cool.  I can’t help but look when they’re dancing.

A3. Goro Inagaki (SMAP).  I saw “Thirteen Assassins” and thought his acting and character was amazing.

A4. Ryo Nishikido and Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8).  Maybe Nishikido-kun.  I’ve been meeting up with Hina (Murakami) more lately, we go out for dinner.

A5. Masahiko Kondo. When I congratulated him on his 30th anniversary, as a thank you gift he gave me a copy of his “ざんばら (Zanbara)” CD which he had signed and written me a message inside.  I was really happy when I read the “Dear Jun”, and I think that responsible attitude is cool.  I want to be like him.

A6. Tomoya Nagase (TOKIO).  This is from an impression I got of him when he was a guest on our TV show “嵐の宿題くん (Arashi no Shukudaikun)”.  He’s really tall, and when we had to jump into this very small space, he flew into the air.  That and seeing him put so much effort into it made an impression on me.

A7. Yuri Chinen (Hey! Say! JUMP).  Not really spoilt, I guess.  It’s just that he really likes our leader (Ohno), and I’ve seen him mention our leader again and again in every magazine I’ve looked at.  The way he acts like a little brother I think.

A8. There must be a lot…I don’t know…I can’t choose.

A9. Sho Sakurai (Arashi).  That has to be Sho-kun.  He’s a reporter.

A10. Kanjani8.  Eight and Arashi!

A11. “ザ・鉄腕! DASH!! (The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!)”  I love it when they do the 5 people vs 100 people tag game.  It looks like a lot of fun.

A12. “ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi)”.  I wish we could make a third one (laughs).

A13. “ABC” by Shonentai.  We used it as a sample song while making “a Day in Our Life”, and I think it has a pretty melody.  It still sounds new when I listen to it.

Kazunari Ninomiya

A1. I guess Masayuki Sakamoto (V6).  He’s really good, and he’s one of my favourite singers.

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi).  Because I met leader around the time everyone was saying he was good.

A3. Go Morita (V6).  I guess Go-kun.  I have this impression that he gets asked to star in a variety of stage plays and movies a lot.

A4. Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8).  Hina.  I’m close with Kanjani8 members, and a lot of them joined (the agency) around the same time as me so there’s no pressure.

A5. Masaki Aiba (laughs).  Because probably no one will choose him so I’ll choose him (laughs).  In every way this is a pity vote (laughs).

A6. Tatsuya Yamaguchi (TOKIO).  I have this image that everyone in TOKIO is athletic.  Especially Yamaguchi-kun because he looks like he does a lot.

A7. Ken Miyake (V6).  I guess Ken-chan.  Actually, I shouldn’t be calling my senior like that, but I can because he’s so friendly (laughs).  He’s just Ken-chan.  He’s nice to his juniors as well so rather than being spoilt, he’s just friendly.

A8. Masahiko Kondo.  I guess Matchy-san.  Not that he’s got a mountain of hobbies, but I have an image that he’s interested in a range of things.

A9. Sho Sakurai (Arashi).  Because he works in the news.  From that, I guess.

A10. Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO).  He’s used to talking so it might be easy.  I just want to talk I guess.

A11. “ザ・鉄腕! DASH!! (The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!)”  I’ve been watching it for years.  They’ve built an entire village now, which is amazing, but it’s still fun to watch and there’s always something new to like which is what I love.

A12. “ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi)”.  The movies we make as a group have such a Johnny’s quality about them.  Something you can’t get unless you’re a Johnny’s.  I want to make a “Pikanchi 3”, but we’re still getting rejected (laughs).

A13. “FRIENDS” by KinKi Kids.  Because the first time I was on TV was for this song.  It’s a memorable song.  It might be different from my favourite song, but it’s the first song that comes to mind.  I’ve definitely listened to and learnt a lot of other songs, but if this comes on I think I can sing it, and I can practise hard…even though all I did was sway from side to side, it’s a song that means a lot to me.

Satoshi Ohno

A1. Takahisa Masuda (NEWS).  Massu.

A2. Tomoyuki Yara (Musical Academy).  But everyone’s good in their own way.  (But if I had to choose then) it would be Yaracchi…

A3. Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi)

A4. Shigeaki Kato (NEWS).  I go out fishing with him.

A5. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO).  Matsu-nii.  I got that impression having worked with him a lot.

A6. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO). Matsu-nii is fast at running.

A7. Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi)

A8. I don’t know…

A9. Yoshihiko Inohara (V6)

A10. Shigeaki Kato (NEWS). (After telling Ohno that Kato-san had said, “I want to go fishing with Ohno for work”)  Sure, I’ll go with that (laughs).

A11. Um…I don’t really watch TV.

A12. “硫黄島からの手紙 (Letters from Iwojima)”.  I saw it and cried.

A13. “時代(TOKIO)をよろしく!” by TOKIO.  It’s a song that means a lot to me, it was the first song I danced to.

Sho Sakurai

A1. Masayuki Sakamoto (V6).  I love the Disney song Sakamoto-san sang, it was very serene.

A2. Go Morita (V6).  The way he gets on the rhythm is cool, he’s like someone from overseas.

A3. Junichi Okada (V6).  When I played next to him on “木更津キャッツアイ (Kisarazu Cat’s Eye)” I learnt a lot from him.

A4. Kenichi Okamoto.  If I had to choose, it would be Kenichi Okamoto-san.  But he’s a big senior of mine, so rather than being in my circle of friends, it’s more like he lets me go out with him.

A5. All of my seniors.  It’s because they paved the way, and that’s why I’m where I am today.

A6. Taichi Kokubun and Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO).  I think Kokubun-san has amazing stamina.  I’m amazed at how Matsuoka-san can do anything as well.

A7. Yuri Chinen (Hey! Say! JUMP).  Because he loves Ohno-kun apparently.  He said so in a magazine.

A8. Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO).  He knows and does a wide range of sports, even ice skating, and knows a lot about clothes.

A9. Kazukiyo Nishikiori (Shonentai).  I remember when I went to New York with him for work about 10 years ago.  He just knew all these things and I remember thinking that I wanted to become an intellectual adult like him.

A10. Kanjani8.  It was so fun when we played one another in Mannequin5 on “ひみつの嵐ちゃん! (Himitsu no Arashichan!)”.  I want to go on another variety show with them.

A11. “R30”  I loved the atmosphere (Taichi) Kokubun-san and (Yoshihiko) Inohara-san created.

A12. “模倣犯 (Mohouhan)”

A13. “愛なんだ (Ai nanda)” by V6.  It’s a really good song and it reminds me of the time it came out.

    Uwaaa~ flailing to Ohno’s answers~

    And I bet there’ll be lots of “Ohno” in Chinen’s answer for these questions LOL

    • 14:12 JST January 29, 2011 at 2:12 PM

      @Yan:

      I literally loved Ohno’s first answer when he chose Massu (/>v<)/
      My fave talent talking about another fave talent…awww

      Hehehe, Chinen's answers are very predictable.
      I'm almost there. Just waiting for lunch to cool down so I can eat it and then get back to solid work.

    lol oh I love Nino’s answers. He really loves Leader and bullying Aiba. AND him and MatsuJun both gave such long answers. Love that some of them want to collaborate with Eito. I’ll SO look forward to that.

    Thanks for sharing all these!!!

    • 10:26 JST January 30, 2011 at 10:26 AM

      @lilone:

      I loved watching Arashi and Kanjani8 on Mannequin5 XD
      I hope more Johnny’s groups will have a face off with Arashi on the same show

      Some of the guys were really chatty and others not so eh!

    Thank you for translating the whole election! 🙂
    It’s fun to read who picked whom. There were some interesting answers!
    Loved how Nino bullied Aiba-chan! :)))
    Takky talked a lot! And so did Matsujun.
    I liked how Oh-chan picked Massu for best singer.
    Kame was being very vague, refusing to name ppl. 😛
    What else… Oh Chinen had Ohno-kun and Arashi everywhere of course, and it was fun to see that Arashi members picked him as spoiled, because of his Oh-chan fanatism XD

    Thanks again! I enjoyed it!

    • 10:36 JST January 30, 2011 at 10:36 AM

      @enorcsi:

      Thank you for reading it all!

      I really liked how Ohno picked Massu for best singer (but I’m a big Massu fan so this is me just being biased, lol).

      Chinen is so cute! I hope he never changes XD

    • 20:07 JST January 30, 2011 at 8:07 PM

      @balkhis:

      I think he’s good (although I prefer Ohno’s singing voice, lol).
      He has a sort of confidence and presence on stage when he sings which I haven’t seen in many other Johnny’s…

      Momo xoxo

    Thanks so much for this!! It’s so interesting.

    I wonder why the members didn’t choose other members for their answers (e.g. Best Dancer – Ohno Satoshi)

    By the way, if you don’t mind, can i post a link to your website for this on my livejournal?
    Thanks =)
