[Sho Beat] (2007.03.03) Sho talking about Nino in Paris and Berlin 
9th-Mar-2007 02:26 am
winkychan: (Sho - Scarf)
I was waiting DESPERATELY for this Sho Beat *0*

After the now infamous Music Station where Nino talked about Paris (cuddles to [livejournal.com profile] nyanchan for the trans/subs <3 ) where I was half "OMG NINO YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT PARIS" and half "BAKA NO MINNA-SAN WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE HIM!" XD

Well like, 1 hour after that, I felt the urge to write an email to Sho (as he's the only one who can read English) to tell him that Nino actually said the truth and that Arashi has many fans outside of Japan, in Europa, USA etc blablablabla... and that we LISTEN to their music (Nino no Baka! Why did he say that XDDD)
I wasn't hoping for him to read my message on his radio show (well yes I was a little hoping for it, who am I kidding, it's my baby-Sho <3), I was just worried to give the message that Nino said the truth.

But apparently, I was not the only one to write about that matter, which makes me REALLY HAPPY!

Paris part MP3: Mega | MF | 4S (a bit of a translation here.)

You can hear the interesting part starting around 14:30.
I vaguely hear him talk about Paris/Berlin/Nino/IwoJima/Premiere/Music Station, at some point, I "think" he still says that he cannot believe it! He also mentions Jun and Hana Yori Dango ("maybe" the japanese girl who wrote was the one that I talked to at the Paris Premiere, I remember her asking me how the hell I knew about Arashi, and I said it was because of HYD (Jun-bait here like so many others), well it's just a supposition, as the Japanese girl apparently was at the Paris Premiere, and I suppose she went to see the Mona Lisa portrait because she mentions Sho's drawing from G no Arashi (BWAHAHHAHAHA XD ) and it seemed to me that the one I talked to went to the Louvres too (as she showed me the pictures of Nino at Versailles (he talked about it in his Game Nikki) and there were others from different touristic locations in Paris)), and drama...

Well I would really love to know what he's really talking about and what his real reaction was! I'm not asking for a translation, but a general idea on his whole talk on this subject, onegaishimasu~ m(_ _)m

At least I hope this made some people happy to hear Sho talking about this (I know this made me DOKIDOKIDOKI LIKE MAD XD~ ), the whole point for me here is that Arashi knows that they have fans everywhere (and that Nino said the truth GOD DAMN IT! >< (except that we DON'T have a JPop channel in France XD AHAHAHA He just said that so the others would believe him XD (so smart!)))

EDIT: The amazing [livejournal.com profile] ringononohara translated it, you can see it here, thank you my dear!

Hahaha so many people have been writing e-mails to Sho-kun, glad to see it paid off! I hope someone will translate that part... I'll link to this in my journal if you don't mind, since I've been talking about this at length and maybe someone will volunteer to translate. ^^

Gyah, I tried my best, Winky-chan!! I think I can say that the translations are about 90% accurate… @_@;;; If you guys find something that I heard wrong, please tell me!

Note: the “…” is parts that I couldn’t get as I couldn’t find the words he was saying in the dictionary... ^^; And the parts in brackets are parts that I kind of think I get the drift but aren’t really sure about the real translation. ^^;

And the part that Sho really talks about Paris starts around 16:48 so I started translating from here. ^^

[Start- 16:48]

Pen name Riva-san (??) [Sho reads her letter]
I just came back going to Paris for my graduation trip the day before. ….
We went to the Louvre and when you talk about the Louvre, you talk about Mona Lisa and when you talk about Mona Lisa, then I can’t can’t help but think about Sho-kun in G no Arashi… I was really influenced by seeing the real Mona Lisa. … (something about wanting to send Sho-kun the influence of the REAL Mona Lisa) I wanted to say “Sho-kun, THIS is Mona Lisa!”

….. (about them talking behind Tama (??) and how when someone is talking in the front and you have people chatting behind them it’s not a very nice thing to do… this is the continuation of what Sho was talking about before he read this letter.)

Nino told me “Sho-kun, Arashi is very popular in Paris!”

I told him: “You’re lying! …”

And Nino said: “Nonono, Paris was really cool. Matsumoto is in Hana Yori Dango, and he’s going to be in various dramas afterwards as well, and we have a newscaster, and we also have someone involved in zoos, and also stage plays, so they know!”

So I said, “Now, no matter how you think about it, it’s because they researched about us and so they know not only Arashi…”

Nino insisted: “No! You really aren’t aware of it?!”

And I said: “No, to have Paris noticing us is impossible!!!”

Sho: So we talked about that, but no matter what, Nino keeps saying: “Arashi seems very popular in Paris!”

But then I’m really told that by writers. It seems like fans want us to have things like concerts in Paris. These letters really came. Putting the location aside, having that said to me, it really made me smile.

Ninomiya gave us bags from Berlin as souvenirs and I’m using it today. Each member has a different one. He gave it to us in Music Station when we came out calling “Good work everyone!” and gave us all a bag with “Berlin” written on it.

[End- 17:50]

KYAAAAAH ARIGATOOOO RINGO-CHAAAAAAN!!!!

I love how Sho is still down to earth, he's got it right, Nino thought it was because of their various works that we know them, but it's clearly because we searched for them!!! (ROOOFL @ "We have someone involved in zoos" XDDDDD)
And I'm so glad he talked about concerts!!! (in my email, I gave him some informations about different Japanese concerts we had in France)

I'm so happy so many wrote to him!

Thank you once again for the translation <3<3<3<3
12th-Mar-2007 08:56 am (UTC)
Iya, it was nothing! ^^;;; The reason why I'm studying Japanese is so I can understand it so I can spread the love! Though it's no where near perfect... @_@; I still can't gurantee my translation is 100% accurate.. ;_; gomen!

Yeah, Sho is pretty down to earth! And I dunno why, I guess it was cuz I was tired and typing it around 1am-ish that my brain couldnt' register what "oubei" was! @_@;; There is a line in there where he says after “You’re lying!" and he goes "Paris de wa nai! Oubei de wa nai!" (if memory serves me correctly) Which means "Not in Paris! Not in Europe or America!" I guess they never thought fans from non-asia areas would be listening to Japanese songs.. ^^;

Oh! Who did concerts in France?! =O
12th-Mar-2007 09:24 am (UTC)
winkychan: (Default)
The first to have concerts in France were mainly Visual Key bands, for really small concerts, it started 3 years ago and I seriously don't remember their name (they had concerts in Paris, but also in other towns in France, like Aix-en-Provence (where I used to live, it's in the South-East of France, and that's how I heard it)).
After that we had more known Visual Key bands giving concerts in Paris, but the real pionner of JPop in France was Kokia, whom I'm a HUGE fan of (when I've learned she was about to come to France, I fell on my knees.. seriously. She's not even that famous in Japan, so how the hell would I ever hoped she would come one day in France!), it was last year in Paris, in a small concert room for 450 persons... and all the seats were sold out in only two weeks XD~ (all of Kokia staff were surprised they even sold tickets, but to sold ALL the tickets, they wouldn't believe it).
And she gave a wonderful concert, which was the first real JPop concert in France. 2 days after that, I had the huge chance to see her again at the Midem of Cannes (because I tried my luck with her manager who was a really nice woman, when I was waiting in the line, and she gave me and my friend two invitations for her private concert), which is like the "Festival de Cannes" but for music, so you have only professionals and journalists. So we were the only two fans in the crowd for her (I also saw Rin' and Rie Fu), she even recognized us *0* Out of that, I talked with some journalists (because we had uchiwas and all and they were really curious, so we did lots of Kokia advertising XDDD), and apparently, it was only since last year (which was, at this time 2005) that Japanese music started to interest intertional business people, because this midem had like, the whole crowd filled with Japanese businessmen, meaning, starting 2006, Japanese music really started, financialy, and busenessly talking, to be exported. And that was quite true, because right after that, there were, in France at least, two Japanese labels created for publishing Japanese music in France (I think it's "Wasabi" and the other one I don't remember), so far they are only selling like soundtracks and really good JPop, like Kokia, and Arai Akino (like, I don't think they will ever sell Ayumi Hamasaki stuff, my poor Ayu), and that's how, in the middle of last year, Kokia was labeled in France (and Spain). Her new album was released last November in France and Spain BEFORE JAPAN! And she gave us another concert, last January, this time at a bigger place: Le Bataclan (which is REALLY famous in Prestigious in Paris), their was 1100 persons, the room was all crowded, it was wonderful ;^;
As for the other artists, we also had Kaggeru, they even made their goodbye-last-and-ultimate concert just before they disbanded... in Paris/Le Bataclan @_x (I mean.... they have more fans in Japan... but they said goodbye... in Paris!). We also had Arai Akino two months after the first Kokia concert, she also gave one in Germany.
I know we had others less known Japanese artists which I don't remember the name, but they were all produced in concert by Paris Visual Prod.

Err... that's a lot of talking here ^0^;;;; But I'm all excited because as I know all of this, I know that IF THEY WANT TO (and if damn-Johnny-the-devil WANTS TO), Arashi can come to France, we have EVERYTHING they need: labels blablabalbalbalablabalbal etc... and the fans XD~ (that's mainly what I said to Sho in my last email XD )

OMG I talked too much, must go to work now XD
14th-Mar-2007 08:42 pm (UTC)
like Aix-en-Provence (where I used to live, it's in the South-East of France, and that's how I heard it)).
OMG!!!!!!!!! je pensais etre la seule dans cette ville a aimer les Arashi. Sugoi *____* Trop contente il y a des fan vraiment partout c'est cool ^__^
9th-Mar-2007 10:07 am (UTC)
Thanks a lot for this translation and thanks winkychan for the file ^__^!! You 2 did a great job!!

bn bin maintenant on a plus qu'à les attendre lol ^0^!
27th-Mar-2007 08:05 pm (UTC) - I am sorry but...
Anonymous
I really don't know how use "live journal" and I am really sorry to break the rules and post anywhere but I don't find other people who talk about arashi...
And i have a question....
This summer I travel to japan, and i would like to know if someone know if there is some concert of arashi this summer and where.
9th-Mar-2007 02:56 pm (UTC)
thanks for translation!!!
i hope they are all convinced by now...they should believe in their charm ne? lol

nino is sweet in giving each member a different berlin bag..argh they are so rabu rabu, what can i say.
9th-Mar-2007 02:56 pm (UTC)
ext_59146: (Arashi)
That's so amazing, thanks for translating! *sends Sho-kun an e-mail to thank him for thinking about the international fans too*
9th-Mar-2007 03:54 pm (UTC)
WOW thanks for this translation ! OMG ---->dreaming of a Arashi's concert in Paris...

Arashi on vous attend !!!
9th-Mar-2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
Just wanna say that Nino gave them all the same bag, I think, because Sho says that each member has a different colour, and I thought it was funny, because it means that Nino didn't think about it too much xDDDD

And winkychan, thanks for posting the "Sho beat"!! ^^
12th-Mar-2007 08:59 am (UTC)
Oh really?! whoops. I need to re-listen to it then. ^^;;; But I guess buying all the same bag would be less time consuming for Nino.. xD
9th-Mar-2007 10:11 pm (UTC)
Hi! My japanese oral comprehension is still pretty sucky so I'm not really sure I got this right! Didn't sho say that's it's actually journalists who were aware of the members' activities like jun starring in dramas and so on? Then Sho thought it was because they reasearched on him and found out these facts, but Nino instisted that it wasn't just that and a journalist told him they would definitely get fans to come if they tried to hold a concert in Paris?
Coz in this case i think we owe a huuuge thank you to Alice barthelemy who did this interview http://www.orient-extreme.net/index.php?menu=musique&sub=artistes&article=659
because she's the one who godsmacked Nino by telling him all this!
9th-Mar-2007 10:14 pm (UTC)
winkychan: (Default)
OMG is that so???
I loved her interview, she asked really good questions, and if it could have some influence on Arashi in France, maybe, sometime in the future, we owe her so much!
12th-Mar-2007 09:06 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it was Nino who told Sho that fans are aware of them because of the member's activities. But now that makes sense... because Sho said that Nino said the "hisha" told him about it, and I was confused because Nino wouldn't have read letters from fans, but now I see that Nino meant journalists! =O Thanks for clearing that up for me!

For the concerts though, I think Sho meant "Hisha" as in normal writers because he said "haita yo!" which I took for letters coming in.

Oh! Thanks for the article! x3 It's nice to read about Nino's thoughts. And I actually found out something new. o.O; I didnt' know KAT-TUN was formed before Arashi... o.o;;
9th-Mar-2007 10:41 am (UTC)
thanx you ^^
C'est cool, il commence enfin à croire Nino ^^ (un concert peut etre dans quelque années :p)
"we also have someone involved in zoos" lol ça m'a tué pauvre Aiba mdrrr
9th-Mar-2007 11:27 am (UTC)
hmmpf is it only me who thinks that Nino is talking unfairly?? I am getting annoyed of this "aaaah we have fans in Paris" <-- Yeah they have. *kills the fans in Germany to have the pure truth*
It breaks my heart as a German who went to Berlin to welcome him. But well~ nvm...
9th-Mar-2007 12:02 pm (UTC)
winkychan: (Default)
Aaaaw, I totally understand you my dear, I sometimes thought about it.
From the review I've read, most of the German fans were already inside the theater at the time Nino arrived on the red carpet, and I don't think they could scream and squee once he was in the theater :/ But that doesn't mean he didn't notice the German fans!
At least Sho got to talk a lot about Berlin in News Zero!
9th-Mar-2007 01:33 pm (UTC)
Yeah Sho our Hero o.o
*slaps nino in the corner* What have you done?
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<_____<>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Yeah Sho our Hero o.o
*slaps nino in the corner* What have you done? <_____< okay i will forget you ö__ö ääääh...forgive you i mean >______< <-- i really wrote forget you aaaaaars~ T___T

Hmm...but i am still wondering why we call us dears? Ö___Ö

9th-Mar-2007 01:45 pm (UTC)
winkychan: (Default)
Aaaarg, Nino no baka! It's your pissed off subconcious that wrote "forget" instead of "forgive" XDDDD

And I don't know why we call ourselves dears, did I start that on Last.FM? I don't remember XDDD I can stop that if it bothers you @_x

And I read that Nino spoke German on his last Bay Storm (he introduced himself), I must go download it! Maybe he's talking a bit more about Germany here!
10th-Mar-2007 06:36 am (UTC)
*rofl* no i think it's because i forgot that it is called forgive xDDD

Hmm No i was the one who started. o.o anyhow i only call my really close friends my dears xDD but know it doesn't bother me. go on my dear O-O;

yes i want to know how he said: ich heiße kazunari >_____< but i don't know where to download it Q_______Q

Ok my dear XD~ I've been searching for it since yesterday night but haven't been lucky yet, if you haven't seen it, you can find a global translation here.
I'm still searching for it (because I wanna hear Nino speak German!) so if I find it, I'll let you know ^^
9th-Mar-2007 02:36 pm (UTC)
thanks so much for sharing! ^^ (and for the link back to the other clip 'cause I missed that ^^;;)

10th-Mar-2007 12:02 am (UTC)

i'm japanese but living in the states, and thank you for tenjo-style-san for giving me a link for this post. and also super huge thank you to akira_shocku for giving me a link for the interview!!!
i just wanted to give a link to those who do not speak french but understand english, cuz that's me, and since i really wanted to read the interview that gave nino a reason to say "arashi is very popular in paris! believe me please!"
i used the web-translation site called babel fish.

winkychan: (Default)
Hi! Thank you for droping by ^^
As I'm French, if you need a better explanation of some parts he said in the interview (because automatic online translator are sometimes not very accurate), feel free to ask ^^
10th-Mar-2007 03:26 pm (UTC) - Re: hello
ohh~ i am glad you could enjoy it! =D
welcome at livejournal ^^ don't be nervous *hugs*
11th-Mar-2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
thanx so much for this post ^^ it's weird they wouldn't believe sth like that, ne? i mean, all one needs to do is type "arashi" on google, and all sortsa fan pages pop up !! **hoping for the day they come to Italy ~sigh** ARASHI o matteru wa yo ^^ Arashi no mina san konakereba watashi wa zettai itsuka nihon ni iku ! ^^ i'm getting too excited. this is not good!
27th-Mar-2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
ah, it wasn't nino who said there was a jpop channel, but music station.

they must have meant itunes or something. On American itunes you can listen to a jpop/anime station (I've never heard Arashi on it yet) or JRadio, a Japanese Christian station (which I totally don't understand O_O;;)

You live in Paris and you went to the Iwo Premiere? *sigh* So jealous!

BTW, I hope you don't mind if I friend you = )
28th-Mar-2007 08:07 am (UTC)
winkychan: (Jun blowing bubbles)
Aaaw, well we have some online Jpop stations, and er... we're going to have a channel about Japanese culture/anime/music :))))

And no I don't live in Paris (I live 800km from there, in the South of France, but I went there nevertheless (I HAD TO AAAAAH!!! XD ))

And nope I don't mind friending you of course, just added you back ^^
28th-Mar-2007 03:02 pm (UTC)
a channel about Japanese culture? Arggggggg, no fair. We have anime on TV, and I think you can order a special anime network in like the most premium package... but nothing that includes culture and music. Mayeb you'll get Music Station! Ha ha/
