(If you still can’t, cheer yourself up by keeping a pet)
Also, please don’t waste too much money.
Do your best so you can bring your families for Hawaii vacation!!”

Yoda: This is embarrassing…

There was an appearance of Kansai origins who were supporting Tendo Yoshimi-san’s performance in “NHK Kouhaku Utagassen”. From Nogizaka46, Mattsun and Naachan were participated because they are also from Kansai. During the performance, they were wearing animal patterned clothes as the specialty of Osaka’s old ladies and they were standing out (lol). By the way, Mattsun is usually doing dumb things and taking some comedy acts on the TV, but actually her true nature is a diligent type so she often being a retorting role. As for Naachan, she often retorts with a small voice.  It’s not “What the heck! (Nandeyanen!)” but instead, “Like hell I’d do that” or so like that with a small voice (lol). 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi

Nogizaka46 20th Single C/W Song 『Against』 Lyrics & Translations & Review

乃木坂46 – Against

あの日初めての場所は 強い風が吹いていたよ
夢に見ていた世界は 遮るものが無い
前に誰かいるのなら 後をついていけばいいけど
先頭に立ってしまった 運命には逆らえない
That day, a strong wind blew where we were for the first time
There wasn’t anything to block that in that world I’ve seen in my dream
If there was someone in front of me, I would just follow them but
I couldn’t defy the fate to be the one who should stand in the front

弱音なんて吐けず 歯を食いしばった日々
幾つの涙流せば あの夢まで 行けるだろう
Those days when I didn’t whine about anything and just stand the pain
Just how many liters of tears I should shed so I could reach out to my dream?

僕らは 変わらなきゃいけない
永遠なんか信じるな
昨日の自分とは決別して 生まれ変われ
このままここに居続けるのは 誰の為にもならない
新しい道を切り開いて 立ち向かうんだ
Against
We must change
Don’t believe in eternity
Say goodbye to you in yesterday and be born again
It is not for anyone to keep staying as you are
Open up a new way and face it
Against

いつの間にかたどり着いた 目指していた山の頂き
思い出を振り向くよりも 新たな山を登りたい
夢を叶えてたら 人はどう生きるか
何を失っても その答えを知りたいよ
When we realized it, we could finally arrived to the mountain where we were aiming to
Rather than looking back at that time, I want to climb a new mountain
How will people live when their dreams have already came true?
What did they lose? I want to know the answer

孤独にならなきゃ行けない
別の道を進むべきだ
いつかは成長して競走する 僕らじゃないか
居心地の良さ甘えていたら 何も奇跡は起きない
味方の中は温かいけど 歩き出したい
Against
I must go alone
Advancing to a different path
Someday we will grow and compete each other. That’s who we are, right?
If you grace coziness, none of miracles will occur
It gives me warmth when I’m with allies, but I want to move on
Against

放浪の風は いつだって優しいけれど
時折の逆風は 心を強くするんだ
The wandering wind is always gentle but
Adverse wind makes our heart stronger

僕らは変わらなきゃいけない
永遠なんか信じるな
昨日の自分とは決別して生まれ変われ
このままここに居続けるのは誰の為にもならない
新しい道切り開いて 立ち向かうんだ
Against
We must change
Don’t believe in eternity
Say goodbye to you in yesterday and be born again
It is not for anyone to keep staying as you are
Open up a new way and face it
Against


This song is sung only by 1st gen member. And when I listened to the lyrics carefully, my eyes became blurry.

It’s still unknown who is the center for this song. But people are sure it’s Ikoma because the lyrics is describing her in the beginning.

And…

People are hoping ikuihoshi (Ikuta, Ikoma, Hoshino) are the front members. If that’s true, I guess I may be wailing.
I meant, most of ikuihoshi fans are heartbroken knowing Ikoma didn’t center the last single along with Ikuchan and Minami beside her. And some of us quite disappointed with “Mangetsu ga Kieta”.

The possibility is high. I could hear Ikuchan, Ikoma, and slightly Minami’s voice in the beginning of this song.

Please don’t make us disappointed again, staff-san.

As for the music…

I LOVE IT!!!PROBABLY REPLACING “Fuminsho” IN MY CURRENT 1ST FAVORITE NOGI’S SONG!!!

180318 Nogizaka Under Construction Highlights

Let me apologize in advance,

sorry for the low quality screenshots.

 

This week’s theme is “Goal I want to Achieve in this 7th year of Nogizaka46”.

First presenter is, Ikuchan.

The goal she wants to achieve is,

to be a regular in a show.

Ikuchan: We have been in Nogizaka46 for 7 years. Some members are starting to become regular in TV and/or radio show one by one.

MC: What kind of show you want to appear regularly?
Ikuchan: I really like on location filming, so I’d like to appear in a show such as…Hiru nan desu

Ikuchan: I can eat deliciously, I’m cheerful just by being there (in the show), my smile is constant, and the screen will turn gorgeously whenever it shows me.

Sign: She said by herself.

Ikuchan: I want to show my originality like feeling the music and introduce something in musical way…

MC: Don’t you think that’s unnecessary?

She is then challenged to do a live broadcast of gourmet report of Orange Curry.

She musicalizes her commentary of the gourmet.

“O Orange, Orange! Why art thou Orange?”♪

Sign: People in the studio are confused.

“It taste is about 20% spicy and 90% sweet”♪

“A fantastic harmony of a curry”♪

MC: It’s 20% spicy and 90% sweet,

MC: You sum it up it’s 110%. Why?
Ikuchan: *didn’t notice that*

Ikuchan: To me, 110% is best. I’ve never thought that 100% is the limit. I always aim up one level higher that’s why it became 110%.

MC: So can you do the same thing when you introduce an old man like Himura-san?
Ikuchan: Of course. The gourmet report was an impromptu anyway.

“A Report of an Old Man”

Ikuchan: Here we have an old man♪

Ikuchan: What is your name?♪

Himura: Oh, u-um, it’s Himura.

Ikuchan: Himura, your hairstyle is so cute♪

Ikuchan: Please give us your smile♪

Sign: Tragedy of a Noon.

Ikuchan: It’s okay if it is with or without singing, nevertheless, I’m waiting for the offer anytime!

Next presenter is, Sayunyan.

Goal she wants to achieve,

to have her own photobook released.

She already came up with the title for her photobook.

“A Small Lily” (小さな百合の花 chiisana yuri no hana)
The phrase contains kanjis of her name 小百合 (Sayuri). And it’s actually her father who thought of her name.

She also printed an example of her photobook.

Those photos are taken by Marikka.

MC: Matsumura, photos in your photobook were taken in Hawaii, right? Was it you who asked the staff to take in Hawaii?
Macchun: Actually the staff told me that I have an image of Hawaii. That’s why.

Kazumin: Sayunyan where do you want to go (for photobook shoot)?

Sayunyan: …Switzerland.

MC: Wait, you want to show your ‘true’ self, but why Switzerland?

Sayunyan: I want to go to Switzerland…
Sign: Perhaps this is actually her goal.

Next presenter is Maichun.

Her goal is,

“To buy expensive shoes”

MC: Oh. Please go and buy by yourself then.

Maichun: I really don’t have any of expensive shoes.

Maichun: The most expensive one I have is cost JPY 12K

Maichun: The original price was 30K, but it was 60% off.

Sign: As expected from a water burglar.

MC: How much you will spend for the most expensive ones.
Maichun: I will work hard and…spend 100K for it.

And then she is offered some pairs of women shoes by the staff to buy. She was hesitated if she should buy the most expensive one (250K) or not. In the end…

She bought 2 pairs for 84K.

Last presenter is,

Kazumin.

The goal she wants to achieve is,

to fix her pronunciation.

Kazumin: I want to fix my pronunciation because in the 7th year, I want to challenge myself as an actress as well.

To measure how bad her pronunciation is, she is told to say 高所得者層 (koushotokushasou/high income group) to Siri.

She ended up saying “光速くそ” (Kousoku Kuso/Sh*t Speed of Light) instead.

Siri: Please do not say such a thing.

After a special lecture, she could finally said it right.

Aw, yiss IkuMai sit next to each other <333

MC: How about now, can you say it?
Kazumin: *fails to say it*
Sign: Huh?
Kazumin: Wait, wait, let me try again.

Kazumin: Ta chi tsu te to *while bowing*

Sign: She could say it while bowing.

MC: There is no such actress who talks like that in acting!
Sign: A hard to use actress.

MC: Only a huge robot role will fit that!

Sign: Science Fiction only?

Okay, maybe the Nogi’s ikemens are fit with Robot.

Next episode theme will be a “Let’s Find out Who’s Lying”

Naachan: The culprit is…

Kyaaaah!! Maiyan is so cute with that hairstyle <333

 

That’s all. Thanks for reading!
