[Talking on HotWave 1]

In Short: Talking about its name and pronunciation, a fox sign, Sakura Gakuin, and what they are into. About songs "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI", "BABYMETAL DEATH" and "Catch Me If You Can".

This is a copy of http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xxhkdt with an English subtitle.
This is a translation of 18 min. part of a TV program "HOT WAVE" broadcasted on 2013 February 13th by TV Saitama. I'm sorry the subtitle is sometimes difficult to read with overlapping the original captions. Watching on full screen would improve it somewhat.

Please note that the letters "DEATH" you see in the video mean only "to be" (=DESU / DES_), written so only to add heavy-metal-ness, and no serious meaning is contained.



About Osaka dialect which this MC speaks and his role, plaese see [Note [i] of Talking on HotWave 2]

[i] The letters "DEATH" only means "to be" (=DESU/DES_).

In this video you see the letters "DEATH" many times. I'm afraid you may think why these girls smile while talking about the death. No. It's not the case. The Japanese word "DESU" is a copula (=to be), and the Eastern Japanese pronounce "U" of this very weak (they almost drop it). So the word "desu" or "des" sounds like "death", and someone started writing "DEATH" in stead of "desu". The title "BABYMETAL DEATH" means nothing but "We are BABYMETAL." No relation to death.

I'm not sure of its origin. But I saw long before such a character as a vampire or a death metal singer in a comic and all his "desu" were replaced with "DEATH" to emphasize his character. With such an air, it will work well. Without it, it won't work.


Notes

  1. "We beg your kindness." is for Japanese "Yoroshiku onegai-shimasu." This is literally (a polite form of) "We hope you to do (all) things properly (=in our favor)". It stands in for "Nice to see you", "Thank you in advance", etc.
  2. Sakura Gakuin (=Cherry Blossom School) is a girl group. It has 12 members as of 2013 Aug. It is compared to a school. Its sub groups are called "club activities". Their fans are called "fathers and elder brothers" (=guardians). And a member graduates from (=leave) the group when she graduates from junior high. SU, born on 1997 Dec. 20, graduated on 2013 Mar., and thereafter BABYMETAL is no longer its club activity while YUI and MOA still belong to Sakura Gakuin. Please see Wikipedia or else for more information.
  3. In Japan, popular music was once called "light music" and the club activity is still called "keiongaku-bu" (=light music club) or "keion". So "juuon-bu" is rather "heavy music club" than "heavy sound club".
  4. The students that don't belong to any club are sometimes called (a member of) "kitaku-bu" (=the go-home club).
  5. "Nido-zuke" (=double dipping) is to put a food into a dipping source, take a bite, and put it back in. It's a bad manner. He suggests that an entertainer should not react twice.
  6. "Getemono" (originally "low quality") has a negative feeling. It is used for every bizarre thing (food, fashion, etc). There is another word "chinmi" (=rare taste food), but it means almost "delicacy".
  7. A girl, a top, a bottom, shoes and accessories are painted on a transparent card. These cards are layered on each other to make a coordinated fashion. These are Tomy's products "Millefeui Cards".
  8. A stamp-size sticker is called "seal" and it is often used to seal the envelope.
  9. In Japan, the graduation is typically late in March, and the entrance is typically early in April. And Somei-Yoshino, typical cherry trees, bloom in this period in most of Japan.
  10. They don't speak any words between the tunes, but at last they call "We are...", the audience respond "BABYMETAL!", and with their "See you!", the live ends.
  11. BABYMETAL officials write "No more bullying", but I think "ZETTAI" (=absolutely) is indispensable. [Here] is my translation of this song and notes.
  12. "BABYMETAL DEATH" is a tune of death-metal-like? sound. It has no melody, only saying "B, A, B, Y, M, E, T, A L. / SU-METAL des_. YUIMETAL des_. MOAMETAL des_. BABYMETAL des_." repeatedly. For "DEATH" and "des_", please see note [i].
  13. "Catch Me If You Can" is based on children's play "kakuren-bo" (=hide-and-seek). Many words are borrowed from it. [Here] is my translation and notes.
  14. "Keeki" is for "cake", and "genki" is for "energetic".
  15. Mushi Production is an anime studio started in 1961 by Osamu TEZUKA, the Godfather of Anime.
  16. "Nanja korya?" (=nanda korewa) means "What is this?". It is male language of some dialects. It may be the superlative of "nanda korewa".
      It is famous as Yusaku MATSUDA's word in a TV drama in 1974. A detective was unexpectedly shot by the man he had protected. Seeing his own bloody hand, he said "What's the fuck?" and then fell down dead. Yusaku himself plotted this part.

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:10,700
BABYMETAL...

3
00:00:10,800 --> 00:00:13,600
In 2010 BABYMETAL was formed with the theme:

4
00:00:13,700 --> 00:00:16,300
"the fusion of idols and heavy metal".

5
00:00:16,400 --> 00:00:19,100
Its name has been known not only in Japan,

6
00:00:19,200 --> 00:00:22,200
but also known to North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

7
00:00:22,700 --> 00:00:25,600
On January 9th their debut major label single...

8
00:00:25,700 --> 00:00:29,300
"IJIME DAME ZETTAI" was released.

9
00:00:29,400 --> 00:00:32,500
Tonight is their first appearance on HOT WAVE.

10
00:00:32,600 --> 00:00:35,700
You expect their joyful talk...

11
00:00:35,800 --> 00:00:38,300
with a metal freak MC, YAMAMOTO Shoh.

12
00:00:41,500 --> 00:00:43,400
[MC] This is BABYMETAL.

13
00:00:44,500 --> 00:00:45,900
[SU] I'm SU-METAL.

14
00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:47,400
[YUI] I'm YUIMETAL.

15
00:00:47,500 --> 00:00:48,900
[MOA] I'm MOAMETAL.

16
00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:51,900
[BM] We are BABYMETAL.

17
00:00:52,400 --> 00:00:54,300
[MC] Thank you for your coming.

18
00:00:54,400 --> 00:00:55,600
[BM] We beg your kindness.   *1

19
00:00:55,700 --> 00:01:00,100
[MC] I beg your kindness. You are well made up.

20
00:01:00,200 --> 00:01:02,000
[MC] I feel a little distance between you and me.

21
00:01:02,100 --> 00:01:03,700
[SU] Why do you feel so?  [MOA] There's not.

22
00:01:03,800 --> 00:01:04,700
[MC] Don't you feel so?

23
00:01:04,800 --> 00:01:06,100
[YUI] Not at all.

24
00:01:06,200 --> 00:01:11,500
[MC] Well, I've met you on a radio program before. 
But tonight you are fully dressed up.

25
00:01:11,600 --> 00:01:16,200
I've had an impression that 
your makeups are like Gothic & Lotila.

26
00:01:16,300 --> 00:01:18,400
[YUI] I see.  [SU] Do you feel so?

27
00:01:18,500 --> 00:01:20,800
[YUI] The thickest makeups we've worn were...

28
00:01:20,900 --> 00:01:23,900
those on taking the PV of "Headbangeeeeerrrrr!"

29
00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:26,500
[SU] We wore false eyelashes for the first time then.

30
00:01:26,600 --> 00:01:28,200
[MC] How did you feel then?

31
00:01:28,300 --> 00:01:30,400
[MOA] I felt they were heavy.

32
00:01:30,500 --> 00:01:34,000
[MOA] I felt my eyelids going down by their weight.

33
00:01:34,100 --> 00:01:39,600
[MC] Oh, that's why someone said 
one of the members looked sleepy. I see.

34
00:01:39,700 --> 00:01:42,700
And that's why your makeups are more natural this time.

35
00:01:42,800 --> 00:01:43,800
[SU] Yes. Like that.

36
00:01:43,900 --> 00:01:46,800
[MC] Well, they become lighter. I beg your kindness.

37
00:01:46,900 --> 00:01:48,000
[BM] We beg your kindness.

38
00:01:48,100 --> 00:01:51,300
[MC] Now BABYMETAL is very much talked about.

39
00:01:51,400 --> 00:01:52,700
This is... Idols...

40
00:01:52,800 --> 00:01:55,200
[BM] The fusion of idols and heavy metal.

41
00:01:55,300 --> 00:01:59,300
[MC] The fusion is BABYMETAL. 
And we should say it as one word.

42
00:01:59,300 --> 00:02:01,100
[SU] Yes.  [MOA] One word.

43
00:02:01,100 --> 00:02:02,000
[MC] You need no interpunct?

44
00:02:02,100 --> 00:02:03,600
[MOA] We don't need it at all.  [SU] Nothing.

45
00:02:03,700 --> 00:02:04,900
[MC] Shall I insert something?

46
00:02:05,000 --> 00:02:06,200
[BM] No, thank you.  [MC] I see.

47
00:02:06,300 --> 00:02:09,400
[MC] And there are many people that make 
a mistake saying "BeibiiMetal", aren't there?

48
00:02:09,500 --> 00:02:10,600
[SU] Yes. Many do so.

49
00:02:10,700 --> 00:02:12,000
[MC] Let's say. Let's say it's wrong.

50
00:02:12,100 --> 00:02:17,300
[SU] The word "BABYMETAL" is formed 
from "heavy metal" and "baby".

51
00:02:17,400 --> 00:02:18,900
[MC] That's the reason.  [SU] Yes, it is.

52
00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:21,000
[MC] I already knew.  [SU] And...

53
00:02:21,100 --> 00:02:21,800
[MC] Please continue.

54
00:02:21,900 --> 00:02:26,200
[SU] It is pronounced 
not "BeibiiMetal" but "Bebiimetal".

55
00:02:26,300 --> 00:02:27,200
[MC] I see.

56
00:02:27,300 --> 00:02:29,200
[MC] Tonight we can learn much about BABYMETAL.  
And one more lesson.

57
00:02:29,300 --> 00:02:33,200
The sign of the horns is famous in heavy metal.
Ronnie James Dio often used it.

58
00:02:39,500 --> 00:02:41,400
But I hear BABYMETAL's sign is slightly different.

59
00:02:41,500 --> 00:02:43,400
[SU] Yes. It's different.  [BM] It's a fox.

60
00:02:43,500 --> 00:02:45,600
[MC] What?  [MOA] It's a fox sign.

61
00:02:45,700 --> 00:02:48,900
[MC] I hear its origin was your mistakes, wasn't it?

62
00:02:49,000 --> 00:02:53,100
[SU] Yes. We were shown the photo 
to try the sign of the horns.

63
00:02:53,200 --> 00:02:55,300
But we didn't understand well.

64
00:02:55,300 --> 00:02:57,900
We said "It looks like a fox."

65
00:02:58,000 --> 00:02:59,700
and made different signs.

66
00:02:59,800 --> 00:03:02,800
[YUI] Our sign has been the fox sign ever since.

67
00:03:02,900 --> 00:03:05,400
[SU] Seeing our signs, our staff said 
"Well. The fox sign is alright."

68
00:03:05,500 --> 00:03:06,800
[MC] Your staff accepted it, didn't they?  
[SU] Yes, they did.

69
00:03:07,000 --> 00:03:08,100
[YUI] From our mistakes...

70
00:03:08,200 --> 00:03:11,100
[MC] It came out. It's awesome.

71
00:03:11,200 --> 00:03:13,000
BABYMETAL has become very popular now.

72
00:03:13,100 --> 00:03:15,700
The performance hall is quite BABYMETAL LIVE.

73
00:03:15,800 --> 00:03:17,400
......

74
00:03:17,500 --> 00:03:19,800
Um? I talk about the atmosphere.

75
00:03:19,900 --> 00:03:20,900
[SU] I see.

76
00:03:21,000 --> 00:03:23,600
[MC] And I went to your live some times.
[MOA] Thank you for your coming.

77
00:03:23,700 --> 00:03:27,000
[MC] Miss SU stands and sings.

78
00:03:27,100 --> 00:03:30,500
And Miss MOA and Miss YUI 
keep on dancing to the end.

79
00:03:30,500 --> 00:03:31,000
[MOAYUI] Yes.

80
00:03:31,100 --> 00:03:35,700
[MC] When I said "back dance" before, 
you said "No. It is the side dance."

81
00:03:35,800 --> 00:03:39,500
You dance at the singer's side, 
and sometimes in front of the singer.

82
00:03:39,600 --> 00:03:42,900
And it's a very hard dance. 
How should I say? How to explain?

83
00:03:43,000 --> 00:03:44,000
[MOA] Um...

84
00:03:44,200 --> 00:03:49,300
[MC] At the beginning, you come in like "gwaaah".

85
00:03:49,400 --> 00:03:50,900
[YUI] "Gwaaah"... [MOA] Well, like "gwaaah".

86
00:03:51,000 --> 00:03:53,200
[MC] You run across from right to left and left to right.

87
00:03:53,300 --> 00:04:00,500
[YUI] In the tune "IJIME DAME ZETTAI", 
YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL run from the stage wing.

88
00:04:00,600 --> 00:04:06,500
[YUI] I was surprised when our choreographer 
first told us it. MOA, weren't you?  [MOA] Yes, I was.

89
00:04:06,600 --> 00:04:08,700
[YUI] We were surprised that 
there could be such choreography.

90
00:04:08,800 --> 00:04:09,700
[[MC] Indeed surprising.

91
00:04:09,800 --> 00:04:12,600
[MOA] Sure. We once exit from the stage.

92
00:04:12,700 --> 00:04:15,400
We exit before the tune begins, and we come in again.

93
00:04:15,500 --> 00:04:23,100
I thought some audience would surely think 
this was SU's solo tune.

94
00:04:23,200 --> 00:04:27,100
At the beginning only SU is on the stage.

95
00:04:27,200 --> 00:04:31,000
[MC] As you repeat "SU", "SU", 
it reminds me of another SU.

96
00:04:31,100 --> 00:04:33,400
[MOA] I talk about SU-METAL... That's all.

97
00:04:33,500 --> 00:04:37,400
[MC] I see. You finish at unexpected timing.
I can't be off my guard.

98
00:04:37,500 --> 00:04:41,100
BABYMETAL is really hard, 
and gets the popularity in the live.

99
00:04:41,200 --> 00:04:43,600
But I hear its origin is the girls group 
"Sakura Gakuin" (=cherry blossom school).   *2

100
00:04:43,700 --> 00:04:46,200
Or rather, you are still 
the members of Sakura Gakuin, aren't you?

101
00:04:46,300 --> 00:04:46,800
[BM] Yes, we are.

102
00:04:46,900 --> 00:04:48,900
[MC] And of Sakura Gakuin, BABYMETAL is...

103
00:04:49,000 --> 00:04:51,300
[SU] It is one of the extra club activities.

104
00:04:51,400 --> 00:04:52,200
[MC] What club?

105
00:04:52,300 --> 00:04:53,500
[SU] We belong to "JUUON-BU".

106
00:04:53,600 --> 00:04:54,700
[MC] How do you write it in kanji?

107
00:04:54,900 --> 00:04:57,200
[BM] It is "heavy" - "sound".  [MC] I see.

108
00:04:57,300 --> 00:05:00,900
[SU] That is the opposite of the light music.   *3

109
00:05:01,000 --> 00:05:02,700
[MC] What clubs else are there?

110
00:05:02,800 --> 00:05:04,700
[MOA] The go-home club.   *4

111
00:05:04,800 --> 00:05:06,800
[SU] And the cooking club.

112
00:05:06,900 --> 00:05:08,800
[YUI] The newspaper club.

113
00:05:09,500 --> 00:05:11,400
[MOA] The science club.

114
00:05:11,500 --> 00:05:12,900
[SU] And the tennis club.

115
00:05:13,000 --> 00:05:15,000
[MC] I think other clubs are unexpectedly normal.

116
00:05:15,100 --> 00:05:16,100
[SU] And the baton twirling club.

117
00:05:16,200 --> 00:05:17,900
[YUI] There are many clubs.

118
00:05:18,000 --> 00:05:20,700
[MC] And then, do you belong 
only to the heavy music club?

119
00:05:20,800 --> 00:05:21,700
[MOA] No. I belong to the cooking club too.

120
00:05:21,800 --> 00:05:24,700
[SUYUI] MOA and YUI belong to two clubs.

121
00:05:24,800 --> 00:05:27,200
[MC] I see. The cooking club and...

122
00:05:27,300 --> 00:05:29,200
[MOA] The heavy music club. Only two.

123
00:05:29,300 --> 00:05:31,500
[SU] MOA and YUI belong 
to the heavy music club and the cooking club.

124
00:05:31,600 --> 00:05:32,900
[MC] I see. And how about Miss SU?

125
00:05:33,000 --> 00:05:35,200
[SU] SU belongs only to the heavy music club.

126
00:05:35,300 --> 00:05:37,600
[MC] And then, don't you want to belong to other clubs?

127
00:05:37,700 --> 00:05:40,200
[SU] SU is longing to the go-home club.

128
00:05:40,300 --> 00:05:41,300
[MC] Why? Tell me why.

129
00:05:41,300 --> 00:05:43,700
[SU] Their costumes are pajamas.

130
00:05:43,900 --> 00:05:46,900
[MC] What? I try to keep up with it. OK.

131
00:05:47,000 --> 00:05:51,400
[SU] They wear pajamas and 
their choreography is interesting.

132
00:05:51,500 --> 00:05:57,300
[SU] They roll over on the stage, 
and they stretch themselves like a spring.

133
00:05:57,400 --> 00:05:59,900
[MC] I'm imaging now with all my might.

134
00:06:00,000 --> 00:06:03,100
[SU] There are the feather-light movements in their dance.

135
00:06:03,200 --> 00:06:03,800
[MC] something cute.

136
00:06:03,900 --> 00:06:08,300
[SU] Yes. Their choreography is very free, 
and I hope to perform something like that.

137
00:06:08,400 --> 00:06:09,400
[MC] I see.

138
00:06:09,500 --> 00:06:10,400
How about Miss YUI & MOA?

139
00:06:10,500 --> 00:06:12,900
If you belong to one more club, 
what club do you want to belong to?

140
00:06:13,000 --> 00:06:19,400
[MOA] MOAMETAL wants to belong 
to the tennis club among the present clubs.

141
00:06:19,500 --> 00:06:20,500
[MC] Why? Tell me why.

142
00:06:20,600 --> 00:06:24,100
[MOA] When I was little, 
about from second grade to fourth...

143
00:06:24,200 --> 00:06:26,400
[MC] When you were little? You are still little.

144
00:06:26,500 --> 00:06:27,300
[MOA] I'm not little.

145
00:06:27,400 --> 00:06:28,400
[SU] You are little.

146
00:06:28,500 --> 00:06:30,200
[MOA] No. I'm not little!

147
00:06:30,300 --> 00:06:32,500
[MC] I beg your pardon. 
And from second grade to fourth...

148
00:06:32,600 --> 00:06:35,300
[MOA] I took the lessons of tennis then.

149
00:06:35,400 --> 00:06:41,100
I think I can make use of that experience 
if I belong to the tennis club.

150
00:06:41,200 --> 00:06:43,900
[MC] I see. Of course you can.

151
00:06:45,100 --> 00:06:46,400
How about Miss YUI?

152
00:06:46,500 --> 00:06:50,300
[YUI] YUIMETAL wants to belong 
to the go-home club as well as SU-METAL.

153
00:06:50,400 --> 00:06:54,500
The audience give many calls 
when the go-home club sing.

154
00:06:54,600 --> 00:06:57,400
I feel much that 
they and the audience get excited together.

155
00:06:57,500 --> 00:06:58,700
I want to do so too.

156
00:06:58,800 --> 00:07:00,600
And I want to belong to the science club.

157
00:07:00,700 --> 00:07:02,300
[MOA] Me too.

158
00:07:02,400 --> 00:07:03,600
[MC] What is that club like?

159
00:07:03,700 --> 00:07:10,200
[YUI] It aims to make more people interested in science.

160
00:07:10,300 --> 00:07:14,000
I think my science grade would improve if I belong to it.

161
00:07:14,200 --> 00:07:15,300
[MC] You're caring your grade?

162
00:07:15,400 --> 00:07:17,900
[SU] Their songs contain scientific terms.

163
00:07:18,000 --> 00:07:19,800
[YUI] Like CO2.

164
00:07:19,900 --> 00:07:21,600
[MC] Oh, it helps your study.

165
00:07:21,700 --> 00:07:25,800
Talking about study, Miss SU, 
you are good at studying, aren't you?

166
00:07:25,900 --> 00:07:27,900
[SU] Yes, I am. Tee-hee.

167
00:07:28,000 --> 00:07:31,900
[MC] Tee-hee? It's hopeless. I see.

168
00:07:32,000 --> 00:07:36,800
Three are such cute girls. 
And we shall learn more about them.

169
00:07:36,900 --> 00:07:40,300
We've asked them for bringing 
what they are into now.

170
00:07:40,400 --> 00:07:41,700
Who is the first?

171
00:07:44,200 --> 00:07:46,800
Miss SU, what are you into now?

172
00:07:46,900 --> 00:07:49,500
[SU] I am into semi-precious stones now.

173
00:07:49,600 --> 00:07:51,500
[MC] Semi-precious stones?
[SU] Yes.  [MOA] Oh.

174
00:07:51,600 --> 00:07:52,600
[MC] Good reaction, Miss MOA.

175
00:07:52,700 --> 00:07:53,900
[MOA] Wow.

176
00:07:54,000 --> 00:07:56,400
[MC] It's a double dipping.   *5

177
00:07:56,500 --> 00:07:58,400
And then, why are you into 
semi-precious stones?

178
00:07:58,500 --> 00:08:03,000
[SU] My mother works 
at a semi-precious stone shop.

179
00:08:03,100 --> 00:08:06,600
So there are many 
semi-precious stones in my house.

180
00:08:07,000 --> 00:08:09,000
She recently started working

181
00:08:09,100 --> 00:08:11,500
and she is learning 
about semi-precious stones now.

182
00:08:11,600 --> 00:08:15,800
I too am learning about them with her.

183
00:08:15,900 --> 00:08:17,200
This is the reason.

184
00:08:17,300 --> 00:08:19,200
[MC] Are there some semi-precious stones 
that you like? Which kind of stones?

185
00:08:19,300 --> 00:08:20,700
[SU] I like lapis lazuli.

186
00:08:20,800 --> 00:08:23,200
And... Do you know it?

187
00:08:23,300 --> 00:08:24,600
[MC] Yes. Please continue.

188
00:08:24,700 --> 00:08:26,800
[SU] And I like rose quartz.

189
00:08:26,900 --> 00:08:28,700
[MC] What is rose quartz like?

190
00:08:28,800 --> 00:08:32,600
[SU] Its color is pink 
and it helps the realization of love.

191
00:08:32,700 --> 00:08:34,100
[MC] Wow, I want it.

192
00:08:34,200 --> 00:08:36,800
[SU] It's cute. A stone itself is cute.

193
00:08:36,900 --> 00:08:41,000
[MC] And I hear, last November...

194
00:08:41,100 --> 00:08:45,300
Before you went to Singapore, 
your mother made the charms of the trip.

195
00:08:45,400 --> 00:08:49,600
[SU] Yes. Carving turquoise which 
is said to be a charm of the trip...

196
00:08:49,700 --> 00:08:51,500
[MC] It's a blue-green stone.

197
00:08:51,600 --> 00:08:56,300
[SU] Yes. My mother made them 
and gave to me and gifted to YUI and MOA.

198
00:08:56,400 --> 00:08:58,500
[MC] By the way, 
was the Singapore tour over safely?

199
00:08:58,600 --> 00:08:59,700
[MOAYUI] Yes.

200
00:08:59,800 --> 00:09:01,800
[MC] Didn't anything unbelievable happen? Anything?

201
00:09:03,200 --> 00:09:05,800
[MOA] Yeah. We ate the frog leg dish in Singapore.

202
00:09:05,900 --> 00:09:08,800
[MC] Really? How did you 
feel when you ate it?

203
00:09:08,900 --> 00:09:11,000
[YUISU] It was delicious.
[MOA] It tasted like chicken.

204
00:09:11,100 --> 00:09:13,100
[MC] Didn't anyone say like 
"I hate eating it"?

205
00:09:13,200 --> 00:09:15,400
[SU] At first we said like 
"How shall we do with this?".

206
00:09:15,400 --> 00:09:18,100
[YUI] At first we were worried.
But after a while...

207
00:09:18,200 --> 00:09:20,900
[SU] We came to the conclusion 
that it's no scary if we eat together.

208
00:09:21,000 --> 00:09:25,700
[YUISU] We ate it saying like 
"three two one go".

209
00:09:25,800 --> 00:09:29,800
[MC] You ate it at the same time.

210
00:09:29,900 --> 00:09:31,300
Miss MOA, you ate it, didn't you?

211
00:09:31,400 --> 00:09:34,600
[MOA] I ate. Until then MOA had not 
eaten GETEMONO (=bizarre food).   *6

212
00:09:34,700 --> 00:09:37,100
[MC] Oh, I haven't predicted such a word 
would come from such a pretty mouth. OK.

213
00:09:37,200 --> 00:09:41,400
[MOA] So I had anticipated 
a chance to eat bizarre food.

214
00:09:41,500 --> 00:09:44,000
[MC] Rather anticipating. It's awesome.

215
00:09:44,100 --> 00:09:48,300
[MC] Well, we like to hear more 
after the commercial break.

216
00:09:49,400 --> 00:09:52,900
[BM] Well. Here comes the commercial break.

217
00:09:53,000 --> 00:09:54,000
[MC] Good.

218
00:09:55,000 --> 00:09:57,700
[MC] Next I like to ask Miss MOAMETAL...

219
00:09:57,800 --> 00:10:00,700
what she is into now. Miss MOA, please.

220
00:10:00,800 --> 00:10:09,000
[MOA] MOAMETAL has loved the anime 
"Kirarin Revolution" since I was little.

221
00:10:09,100 --> 00:10:11,300
Kirarin Revolution. KIRARI.

222
00:10:11,400 --> 00:10:16,500
I played with the cards of 
the heroine like paper dolls.   *7

223
00:10:16,600 --> 00:10:21,400
There are the top cards, the bottom cards,

224
00:10:21,500 --> 00:10:24,000
the shoes cards, the accessory cards, etc.

225
00:10:24,100 --> 00:10:29,000
I played changing the clothes.

226
00:10:29,100 --> 00:10:30,700
And I look at them.

227
00:10:30,800 --> 00:10:32,900
[MC] Uh?  [MOA] I look at them.

228
00:10:33,000 --> 00:10:34,100
[MC] What do you mean?

229
00:10:34,200 --> 00:10:37,700
[MOA] As I've coordinated them since before,

230
00:10:37,700 --> 00:10:42,200
there remain what I coordinated when I was little.

231
00:10:42,300 --> 00:10:46,400
[MC] I see. You look at them 
and they remind you of those days.

232
00:10:46,500 --> 00:10:47,700
[MOA] The anime is no longer broadcasted.

233
00:10:47,800 --> 00:10:48,700
[MC] Since the cards are no longer sold,

234
00:10:48,800 --> 00:10:49,700
you only look at them.

235
00:10:49,800 --> 00:10:51,800
Oh, the photos are on the screen now.

236
00:10:51,900 --> 00:10:55,500
You have plenty of cards.

237
00:10:55,600 --> 00:10:57,600
[MOA] I have many.

238
00:10:57,700 --> 00:11:02,300
[MOA] Well, sometimes 
I coordinate the cards even now.

239
00:11:02,400 --> 00:11:03,600
[SU] Oh, you do so.

240
00:11:03,700 --> 00:11:07,300
[MC] It's cute. Good. Thank you.

241
00:11:07,400 --> 00:11:09,900
And then, Miss YUIMETAL, please.

242
00:11:10,000 --> 00:11:14,000
[YUI] What YUIMETAL is into now 
are the seals (=stickers) of cherry blossom.   *8

243
00:11:14,100 --> 00:11:16,300
I have collected many seals since before.

244
00:11:16,400 --> 00:11:18,400
And as the graduation season is getting near,

245
00:11:18,500 --> 00:11:20,800
there are many cherry blossom seals.   *9

246
00:11:20,900 --> 00:11:23,900
I find cute ones and collect them.

247
00:11:24,000 --> 00:11:25,500
[MC] For what do you use them?

248
00:11:25,600 --> 00:11:35,200
[YUI] Sometimes I attach them 
on a transparent case to decorate it.

249
00:11:35,300 --> 00:11:37,500
And I seal my letters with them

250
00:11:37,600 --> 00:11:39,700
and I exchange the seals with my friends.

251
00:11:39,800 --> 00:11:40,600
[MC] I see. It's joyful.

252
00:11:40,700 --> 00:11:43,400
And I hear your blogs are handwritten.

253
00:11:43,500 --> 00:11:50,700
[YUI] The blog of Sakura Gakuin is a class journal.

254
00:11:50,700 --> 00:11:54,200
We write it on a loose leaf paper.

255
00:11:54,300 --> 00:11:56,300
[SU] And you can see the differences 
of our handwritten letters.

256
00:11:56,400 --> 00:11:58,700
And someone draw pictures on it.

257
00:11:58,800 --> 00:12:00,800
[MC] Oh, Miss YUI's blog is on the screen now.

258
00:12:00,900 --> 00:12:03,000
You are good at handwriting.

259
00:12:03,100 --> 00:12:05,900
[YUI] No. No. No.
[MC] Really good.

260
00:12:06,000 --> 00:12:07,800
[SU] YUI is good at drawing pictures too.

261
00:12:07,900 --> 00:12:09,400
Sometimes she puts her pictures on it.

262
00:12:09,500 --> 00:12:14,000
[MC] Oh, really good drawing. It's awesome.

263
00:12:14,100 --> 00:12:15,000
[YUI] Thank you so much.

264
00:12:15,100 --> 00:12:16,300
[MC] You are versatile. You can do everything.

265
00:12:16,400 --> 00:12:19,700
Well, tonight is special. 
You never talk in the live, do you?   *10

266
00:12:19,800 --> 00:12:21,000
[BM] No, we don't.

267
00:12:21,100 --> 00:12:21,800
[MC] This is precious.

268
00:12:21,900 --> 00:12:24,900
And I wonder. Are you told not to smile in the live?

269
00:12:25,000 --> 00:12:26,100
[SU] Yes, we are.

270
00:12:28,300 --> 00:12:30,700
[MC] But tonight you give us a lot of smiles.

271
00:12:30,800 --> 00:12:31,600
Thank you very much.

272
00:12:31,700 --> 00:12:34,400
Well, BABYMETAL has released 
a new CD single on January 9th.

273
00:12:34,500 --> 00:12:36,900
It's the debut major label single.

274
00:12:37,000 --> 00:12:38,600
Let us know the title, please.

275
00:12:39,000 --> 00:12:41,700
[BM] Well, "IJIME DAME ZETTAI" 
(Bullying, No, Absolutely).   *11

276
00:12:41,800 --> 00:12:43,700
[MC] It has a strong message. It's a good tune.

277
00:12:43,800 --> 00:12:45,200
You have performed it since before, haven't you?

278
00:12:45,300 --> 00:12:50,900
[SU] Yes. BABYMETAL was formed about two years ago.

279
00:12:51,000 --> 00:12:53,300
We have performed it since then.

280
00:12:53,400 --> 00:12:55,800
We really treasure it.

281
00:12:55,900 --> 00:12:58,600
And so do the audience.

282
00:12:58,700 --> 00:13:01,400
When its introduction begins,

283
00:13:01,500 --> 00:13:04,400
they give us shouts "woh".

284
00:13:04,500 --> 00:13:07,400
[MC] Say woh... Really so.

285
00:13:07,500 --> 00:13:10,800
I see its choreography is 
very popular among the audience.

286
00:13:10,900 --> 00:13:12,100
Would you like to teach me it?

287
00:13:12,200 --> 00:13:14,000
Such at so-called chorus, please.

288
00:13:14,100 --> 00:13:17,400
[MOA] At chorus we make fox signs,

289
00:13:17,500 --> 00:13:19,300
cross our arms,

290
00:13:19,400 --> 00:13:21,700
and with SU's singing...

291
00:13:21,800 --> 00:13:22,600
[SU] Bullying.

292
00:13:22,700 --> 00:13:23,400
[YUIMOA] No.

293
00:13:23,500 --> 00:13:24,300
[SU] Bullying.

294
00:13:24,500 --> 00:13:25,100
[YUIMOA] No.

295
00:13:25,200 --> 00:13:26,900
[SU] It's disgraceful.

296
00:13:27,000 --> 00:13:29,100
[YUIMOA] No. No. No. No.

297
00:13:29,200 --> 00:13:30,200
[SU] Like this.

298
00:13:30,300 --> 00:13:32,900
[MC] It's easy to do. It's exciting.

299
00:13:33,000 --> 00:13:37,100
[YUI] So we hope the audience 
to do this with us in the live.

300
00:13:37,200 --> 00:13:39,400
[MC] I see. We will do together.

301
00:13:39,500 --> 00:13:40,300
[YUI] We beg your kindness.

302
00:13:40,400 --> 00:13:44,300
[MC] And the coupling tune is 
titled "BABYMETAL DEATH".   *12

303
00:13:44,400 --> 00:13:46,500
It is also familiar in the live.

304
00:13:46,600 --> 00:13:48,100
It is the opening tune, isn't it?

305
00:13:48,200 --> 00:13:50,600
[SU] Yes. It is an exciting tune.

306
00:13:50,700 --> 00:14:01,200
Its choreography consists 
of the movements for other tunes.

307
00:14:01,400 --> 00:14:08,400
[YUISU] It consists of 
the most exciting parts of other tunes.

308
00:14:08,500 --> 00:14:12,000
[SU] So it is something like a tune for exciting.

309
00:14:12,500 --> 00:14:14,300
[MOA] Something like a warm-up.

310
00:14:14,400 --> 00:14:15,200
[MC] I see.

311
00:14:15,300 --> 00:14:16,800
And I hear, just before the live starts,

312
00:14:16,900 --> 00:14:22,800
Miss YUI & MOA move too much at the stage wing.

313
00:14:22,900 --> 00:14:24,200
[SU] MOA, you do.

314
00:14:24,400 --> 00:14:27,700
[MC] I think that only Miss SU tries to calm oneself.

315
00:14:27,800 --> 00:14:28,600
How about Miss YUI & MOA?

316
00:14:28,700 --> 00:14:33,600
[SU] They say like "Oh, it's starting now. 
I am tense. Aren't you?" and skip around.

317
00:14:33,700 --> 00:14:35,300
[MC] Miss MOA, you don't get tense, do you?

318
00:14:35,400 --> 00:14:36,800
[MOA] I get tense so much.

319
00:14:36,900 --> 00:14:40,300
But there are Mr. Skeletons behind me.

320
00:14:40,400 --> 00:14:41,100
[MC] Mr. Skeletons?

321
00:14:41,200 --> 00:14:43,700
[MOA] BabyBone... Skull suit...  [MC] I see.

322
00:14:43,800 --> 00:14:47,900
[MOA] I wave my hands to Mr. Skeletons who back up us.

323
00:14:48,000 --> 00:14:52,900
And if there is a gap between 
the curtain and the floor,

324
00:14:53,000 --> 00:14:54,400
I peep through it.

325
00:14:54,500 --> 00:14:55,500
[MC] Oh, you do such things?

326
00:14:55,600 --> 00:14:56,300
[SU] Yes, she does.

327
00:14:56,400 --> 00:14:57,700
[MC] You are over-relaxed.

328
00:14:57,800 --> 00:15:02,900
Being excited by the live, 
this generation do such things. I see.

329
00:15:03,000 --> 00:15:06,200
And there is another coupling tune 
of the regular edition.

330
00:15:06,300 --> 00:15:08,800
It's titled "Catch Me If You Can".   *13

331
00:15:08,900 --> 00:15:11,500
Its introduction is horrible.

332
00:15:11,600 --> 00:15:15,800
[YUI] Yes. You hear 
the clacking footsteps at the beginning.

333
00:15:15,900 --> 00:15:17,400
I am scared at that part.

334
00:15:17,500 --> 00:15:19,900
So, when I was alone in the recording booth,

335
00:15:20,000 --> 00:15:26,100
I asked our director to skip that part.

336
00:15:26,200 --> 00:15:28,200
[MC] Oh, you said you didn't want to hear it.

337
00:15:28,300 --> 00:15:29,900
You're cute. I see.

338
00:15:30,000 --> 00:15:31,400
Though you are so young,

339
00:15:31,500 --> 00:15:33,700
you get very tired after the live is over, don't you?

340
00:15:33,800 --> 00:15:36,100
[SU] Yes, we do.

341
00:15:36,200 --> 00:15:37,300
[MC] But...

342
00:15:37,400 --> 00:15:41,500
[MOA] If there are some cakes...
[SU] We get energetic.

343
00:15:41,600 --> 00:15:43,200
[MOA] KEEKI DE GENKI.   *14

344
00:15:43,300 --> 00:15:45,200
[MC] Wow, the rhyme of "KI".

345
00:15:45,300 --> 00:15:47,700
No. It's not time to say such a thing.

346
00:15:47,800 --> 00:15:51,700
OK. Dear audience, 
please try to listen to their CD single.

347
00:15:51,800 --> 00:15:52,600
[SU] Please try.

348
00:15:52,700 --> 00:15:54,900
[MC] Well, to know the detailed schedule,

349
00:15:55,000 --> 00:15:57,000
please check the official site.

350
00:15:57,100 --> 00:15:58,100
BABYMETAL themselves are...

351
00:15:58,200 --> 00:16:00,200
often informed by the official site, aren't they?

352
00:16:00,300 --> 00:16:00,800
[SU] Yes.

353
00:16:00,900 --> 00:16:05,500
[MC] You heard later that the tickets of Zepp Tokyo 
in February were sold out, didn't you?

354
00:16:05,600 --> 00:16:07,200
[MOA] I didn't know that until a while ago.

355
00:16:07,300 --> 00:16:11,600
[MC] You were surprised to hear that, weren't you?

356
00:16:11,700 --> 00:16:12,600
[SU] Yes.

357
00:16:12,700 --> 00:16:16,000
[MC] And the new CD single was ranked 
at number 6 in the hit chart. It's awesome.

358
00:16:16,100 --> 00:16:21,000
Do you have some plans of this year?

359
00:16:21,100 --> 00:16:24,700
[MOA] Well, MOAMETAL hopes that...

360
00:16:24,800 --> 00:16:29,300
BABYMETAL will appear in an anime.

361
00:16:29,400 --> 00:16:31,700
Since I like drawing,

362
00:16:31,800 --> 00:16:34,400
I imagine drawing pictures 
and thinking about the words for ourselves.

363
00:16:34,500 --> 00:16:35,800
[MC] Like Mushi Production...   *15

364
00:16:35,900 --> 00:16:36,600
[MOA] ???

365
00:16:36,700 --> 00:16:38,500
[MC] You will paint the cels, won't you?

366
00:16:38,600 --> 00:16:41,800
[MOA] And, and I want to try voice acting.

367
00:16:41,900 --> 00:16:43,700
[MC] Voice acting. You're thinking in that way.

368
00:16:43,800 --> 00:16:45,400
[MOA] I want to record my voice in an anime.

369
00:16:45,500 --> 00:16:48,000
[MC] Oh, Miss MOAMETAL, 
your facial expression in the live is splendid.

370
00:16:48,100 --> 00:16:49,200
[MOA] Really?

371
00:16:49,300 --> 00:16:54,200
[MC] Really. Like "eh", "uh". 
I feel as if I saw a musical.

372
00:16:54,300 --> 00:16:55,300
[MC] Do you do it unconsciously?

373
00:16:55,400 --> 00:16:56,500
[MOA] I'm never conscious of it.

374
00:16:56,600 --> 00:16:57,700
[MC] You do it naturally, don't you?
[MOA] Yes. Naturally.

375
00:16:57,800 --> 00:16:59,000
[MC] It's awesome.
[MOA] It's awesome, you know.

376
00:16:59,100 --> 00:17:00,100
[MC] You're an actress.
[MOA] Thank you so much.

377
00:17:00,200 --> 00:17:00,600
[MC] OK.

378
00:17:00,700 --> 00:17:02,300
Miss YUI, do you have some ideas?

379
00:17:02,400 --> 00:17:05,900
[YUI] I hope that BABYMETAL 
will appear in a commercial message.

380
00:17:06,000 --> 00:17:07,500
[MC] What kind of commercial 
do you hope to appear in?

381
00:17:07,600 --> 00:17:10,700
[YUI] Well, I don't think in detail.

382
00:17:10,800 --> 00:17:13,800
But I imagine holding products in our hands 
and saying "Such and such DES_".   *[i]

383
00:17:13,900 --> 00:17:16,100
[MC] Oh, good. 
This idea seems easy to materialize.

384
00:17:16,200 --> 00:17:17,100
[YUI] I want to try.
[MC] So good. So good.

385
00:17:17,200 --> 00:17:18,200
And how about Miss SU?

386
00:17:18,300 --> 00:17:21,100
[SU] We BABYMETAL hold up the slogan...

387
00:17:21,200 --> 00:17:26,100
"Conquest of the World".

388
00:17:26,200 --> 00:17:30,600
And we really have received many comments 
from around the world on YouTube.

389
00:17:30,700 --> 00:17:33,400
And we really went to Singapore.

390
00:17:33,500 --> 00:17:37,600
I hope people around the world to think 
"NANJA KORYA?" (=What's the f**k?).   *16

391
00:17:37,700 --> 00:17:40,900
I hope we will become such a group.

392
00:17:41,000 --> 00:17:42,800
[MC] I see. It was interesting.

393
00:17:42,900 --> 00:17:46,200
At last I'd like to receive the message to the audience.

394
00:17:46,300 --> 00:17:50,400
As a representative, Miss SU, please.

395
00:17:50,500 --> 00:17:53,400
[SU] On January 9th our debut major label single

396
00:17:53,500 --> 00:17:55,900
"IJIME DAME ZETTAI" was released.

397
00:17:56,000 --> 00:18:01,000
I think this tune is very characteristic of BABYMETAL.

398
00:18:01,100 --> 00:18:03,800
And, since it contains a strong message,

399
00:18:03,900 --> 00:18:08,500
I hope you to listen to it when you want a push-forward.

400
00:18:08,600 --> 00:18:11,800
And I hope everyone to know BABYMETAL.

401
00:18:11,900 --> 00:18:13,600
Dear audience, please try to listen to it.

402
00:18:13,700 --> 00:18:16,400
[MC] I see. Thank you very much.

403
00:18:16,500 --> 00:18:18,200
[SU] This was BABYMETAL.

404
00:18:18,300 --> 00:18:20,000
[BM] See you.

405
00:18:20,100 --> 00:18:23,000
[MC] Tonight's guests were BABYMETAL. 
Thank you. Good-bye.

406
00:18:23,100 --> 00:18:26,000
[BM] Bye-bye.  [SU] Thank you so much.

  1. Hi, I'm pbh19950 and I'm subbing this video based on your translation. I have some questions on the translations.
    At 03:15, why did BM suddenly stop talking when the MC said "The performance hall is quite BABYMETAL LIVE."?. I also don't understand when the MC said "Um? I talk about the atmosphere." after that.

    Thank you for your time!

    1. Sorry for late reply.
      I translated the MC's words literally. Probably BABYMETAL (and surely I) expected a sentence like "it is filled with excitement", "it is like Metallica's live", etc, and couldn't understand what quality the MC wanted to express with "BABYMETAL LIVE", so BM took a while and thought about it.
      Probably the MC wanted to say "Some atmosphere (or mood) characteristic to BM's live has been formed", "BM and their audience have got their own style", or like, so he referred to the atmosphere. Miss SU understood his intention and said "I see.", but probably she didn't understand then what character it has.
