A7. Ryo Nishikido (Kanjani8).  Who’s spoilt…I don’t know! (laughs)  But in Kanjani8 it would be Ryo.

A8. Shota Yasuda (Kanjani8).  He does a lot, like he has his boat-driving license, and he goes scuba diving.

A9. Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8).  Hina reads a lot so I think that means he knows a lot.

A10. Tomoya Nagase (TOKIO), Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO), and Tadayoshi Okura (Kanjani8).  I want to make a band with the four of us!  I’ll…do double lead guitar and vocals with Nagase-kun!

A11. “ザ!鉄腕! DASH!! (The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!)”

    Subaru’s answer for best singer. I don’t know how to react haha.

    And Okura’s answer for the collaboration question made me wanna pat his head *pats imaginary head*

    Again, thank you for the translations! And I shall go find videos of Sakamoto singing later because so many people voted for him and that got me curious =P

      You’re welcome 🙂
      I’m a little down because I found some other fans had already translated bits and pieces, but it was fun to do.

      Plus the macarons I’m eating now are divine…
