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,


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!

Shiraishi Mai・Wakatsuki Yumi・Matsumura Sayuri
A human pyramid suddenly appeared in lesson room
In lesson room, when Mattsun and Waka were lying down, Maiyan came in! Out of the blue, she climbed up onto both of their backs and a gymnastic just happened (lol). Three of them were appearing in ‘Asahinagu’, so perhaps they wanted to convey the “passion in sport” or “tenacity in sport’? By the way, they were discussing, “What kind of expression we should do?” with serious mode on their faces. They really did their best just for the sake of this picture!  I need to study from them how to be all out even in making fun. 📷 Shinuchi Mai
#Gymnastic #Pyramid #Adultsseriousness

Nishino Nanase
Shutter chance for her defenseless sleeping face!
Naachan often sleeps remain seated without covering her face. On top of it, mostly with earphone plugged in listening to music, so she can’t hear the shutter sound of the camera. That’s why Naachan’s sleeping face is easy to capture 📷 Akimoto Manatsu

Saito Asuka
The trick is to have a lover’s POV
The trick to take a cute photo of Asuka is to have a lover’s POV. Whenever I pointed a camera to her she always pulled out a dislike face, but here I imagined, “Don’t be so stubborn, just be honest already!” as if I’m her boyfriend before I take the photo (lol). With that, I captured a piece with girlfriend mood from her! 📷 Shinuchi Mai

Kubo Shiori
Kubo-chan has a mysterious charm. There are still many sides of her that haven’t been showed yet. 📷 Shinuchi Mai


Ikoma Rina・Akimoto Manatsu
She is way too conscious of the camera that makes herself excessively cunning!
At the handshake event, Manatsu was wearing something unpleasant. Her excuse was like, “I’m cosplaying as a rabbit.”, but her outfit was off-shoulder, exposed belly-button, and she was also wearing mini skirt and fishnet stockings that it even reached a level where the members are gossiping about it (lol). Ikoma-chan asked her, “What are you wearing inside?”. I captured the moment when she pulled Manatsu’s sleeve, but Manatsu suddenly pulled out cutesy face intentionally. It’s easy to catch her being cunning (lol). By the way, when she was asked what she was wearing inside, she just replied with “I don’t know ♪” as if she’s an innocent. 📷 Shinuchi Mai
#Off-shoulder #Manatsu Theater #Performance

Nishino Nanase
She looks like a small animal taking shelter from the rain
During an event of Seven Eleven, Nanase was fooling around as if she’s trying to stay dry under an umbrella. She rolled herself up inside the umbrella just like a small animal. If such a cute girl will be at the cash register, I’ll be sure to pass there every day. 📷

#Sheltering from the rain

Shiraishi Mai
Reproducing memories that took during those lessons
About 5 years ago, Mai-chan and the others in Onee-san Team, would always wear jacket’s hood during lessons trying to imitate Moji Moji-kun together. Remembering that,she reproduce the memories for me. It felt somehow nostalgic. 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi

Saito Asuka・Terada Ranze・Watanabe Miria・Matsumura Sayuri
The photo of “The Captured Alien” is being potrayed for real!?
When I asked Matsumura-san, “Can I take a picture of you?” when we were at handshake event, she suddenly dragged many people and this happened (lol). And so after the four people finished discussing, they came up with the idea of the one smallest among us should be easy to capture so they chose Miria, that’s why it resulted to this. Matsumura-san is always interesting; she talks to me open-heartedly. She’s a kind senpai. I’m in same age with Asuka, we were born at the same month, I’m arbitrarily thinking that we have affinities. 📷 Sasaki Kotoko

Shiraishi Mai
Maharu-san bursting out her instant kill by doing a wink!
Mai-chan and I have both the same role (Miyaji) Maharu at film and stage play, but we have different vibes in our own way. Mai-chan’s kind of Maharu is dignified and her behaviours are so beautiful. And ponytail really suits her! 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
#Maharu-senpai #Wink<3

Nishino Nanase
Toothbrush time before the actual work
I took a picture of Nanase when she was tooth brushing before a concert starts! For some reason, every time Nanase arrives at the workplace, a high probability is present that she would go for tooth brush (lol). Her teeth alignment is beautiful, and the shape her mouth when she is laughing is so cute too. 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi


*Ika-soumen: Ika Somen is raw squid that has been sliced to resemble thin noodles.
**Zeekouchou (絶好調): in perfect form
