180422 Nogizaka Under Construction Highlights

3

I’m still feeling emo with Ikoma grad con today. But, here we go.

This week Nogichuu is 20th single hit prayer.

Shitara: We didn’t hear details about the hit prayer this time. Looks like Ikoma went for it.

Shitara: Ikoma, how was it?

Ikoma: If you ask me how was it, it was like the usual.

Himura: I see. So it was rough as usual.

Ikoma: For this single hit prayer, I will do it since this is my last single before I graduate.

Ikoma: Why? Because it’s mount climbing again.

Sign: Mountain until the end.

Ikoma: I also want to teach many things to 3r gen members who carry on (Nogizaka’s) future.

Sign: Ikoma’s last teaching.

Ikoma: We are also having a special guest today.

Minami: Minami is also here~ ❤

Minami: Why? Why?

Minami: Why am I here?

Sign: Unable to comprehend the situation

Minami: Just how many times I should try again to give my best until I get forgiven?

Ikoma: It was like all decided since the time of senbatsu announcement of this single that you will also go for this hit prayer.

Minami: Like in handshake event, fans were like, “Nicely done for the hit prayer!” even though I haven’t gone for it yet. And then I guess I couldn’t do anything but go do the prayer.

Minami: Since Ikoma-chan is graduating after this, I think I will also graduate from doing hit prayer!

Minami: Let’s pass the baton to the 3rd gen.

Lol, I thought she was there for her PB hit prayer!

Ikoma: If Minami-chan is graduating from doing hit prayer, then…shall we choose the new captain for Mount Climbing club from them?

Sign: We are not even members of this club anyway…

The climbing starts!

Staff: (To Ikoma) It’s your last mount climbing in Nogizaka46

Minami: It’s my last as well!

Sign: Persistently wants to retire

Ikoma: Do you know the timing we are doing this now? It’s two days right after 46hours TV.

The climbing was going monotone for 30 minutes.

Minami: Everyone are becoming quite…
Ikoma: This isn’t good!

Ikoma: I’m afraid that we can’t fill the duration for one episode if everyone is being quite like this.

Minami: I will talk a lot today.

Ikoma: That certain person who likes to be tripped isn’t here after all.

Sign: ‘That’ girl isn’t here.

5 hours since they started climbing, they finally face the last rough spot. They have to climb a cliff that almost 90 degrees.

First climber is Minami

Minami: Since I’m the first one to climb, I want everyone to rest assure that this isn’t so frightening.

Words: She is calmly climbing so the 3rd gen members won’t be in anxiety.

Minami-chan… You’ve really grown up… I’m so proud of you ; __ ;

Minami: I’m finished!

2nd climber is Momochan. She did it well without any major difficulties.

3rd climber is Yoda.

4th climber is Kubo.

5th climber is Mizuki

Mizuki: I can’t move my legs well… But I’ll do my best!

She did it!

The last is the captain. With all her feelings for both of the club and the group, she climbed up the cliff.

Ikoma: Some members are first timers, but it seems we climbed in joy so I have no regrets!

All: We wish for 20th single; “Synchronicity” will become a big hit!

Minami: Let’s pray for Ikoma-chan’s graduation as well!

Momochan: Also for her activities after graduation…

Ikoma: Huh? What? You girls will pray for me?

Momochan: We wish for your happiness!!
Ikoma: Thank you!

Shakiism all the way! ❤

20th single hit prayer has been done successfully!

Shitara: Now that the captain for Mount Climbing club is about to leave, Hoshino, don’t you want to be her successor?

Minami: Actually I had other job in my schedule that time. But I didn’t know why it turned into mount climbing schedule.

Minami: My manager said, “Mountain is top priority”

Shitara: How about you, Akimoto?
Manatsu: I’m not sure if a captain who likes to get tripped is fit to lead the club…

Shitara: Say what?

Sign: Verbal slip

Shitara: Asuka-chan is also member of the club, right?

Shitara: Why don’t you be the captain?

Ashu: I have been concealing my existence because I really don’t want to be.

Himura: THIS CLUB IS ABOLISHED!

Shitara: How about action club?

Ikuchan: Scuba diving club too.

Shitara: How are you girls doing with the club?

Ikuchan: I really want to go at least do the dive activities.

Ikuchan: If scuba diving is really impossible,

Ikuchan: I just want us to dive into something.

Shitara: Let’s end this club activities temporarily.

Two different reaction from club leaders. Lol.

 

Ikuta Erika’s Blog English Translation (2018.04.20)

Les Miserables 2019~ ♪531

Good evening

Les Misérables 2019
The role of Cosette
I got to play her role once again!

Before, I was just a newcomer and I was one of the youngest
But now, I’ve become a little bit of a senpai…

While I get to take pleasure working in this field again
Being able to dig deeper and to feel new many things
I want to experience these things as well.

It is still early
But those who missed it
And those who want to watch it again and again
Please do come and visit the theater ♪

I’ll be looking forward to it.

Yesterday, I appeared on Monitoring
Maiyan and I experienced being pranked with spirits for the first time!
It was scary… >_<
But I’ve become relieved after knowing the truth~

Because of licking the rock salt too much
The next day, I feel like my face has gone swelling… lol

[SUB] 180419 Monitoring (Ikuta Erika & Shiraishi Mai)

6

A total loyalty to my current OTP.

This time, Ikuchan and Maiyan were tricked by ‘Monitoring’ staff with the title: “What if a sudden unnatural phenomenon occurred?”.

They were startled so many times by so many tricks. It’s so cute to see them startled when they heard a little girl saying “Hey…”

This rock salt tho…

And the most important thing to me is…when they’re like this…

*grins widely*

I will upload the hardsub 720p version tomorrow/saturday. For now, please enjoy the 480p from Dailymotion.

Translator Note:

Carnivore (肉食 Nikushoku)
It has double meanings in this context. Literally it means carnivore. And yes, the context here was about Nogi’s members who like to eat meats. But it also has other meaning. Japanese people often use this phrase to point out people who are aggressive in terms of romance. The antonym for this term is Herbivore (草食 sousoku) that means passive in terms of romance.
