  • Please note that these below explanations for names are general interpretations. Usually parents decide the sound first, and then choose the favorable kanji.
  • Private matters written below are said or written by themselves in some interviews or in Sakura Gakuin's journal.
  • Activities as a member of Sakura Gakuin or BABYMETAL are excepted.

SU-METAL

  • Her real name is "中元 すず香" (なかもと すずか; Suzuka NAKAMOTO).
  • "すず" (suzu) is "鈴" (bell) or "涼" (suzushii; cool (of temp.)) and "香"(ka) means fragrance.
        In an interview (thanks to Anonymous san on 2014 May 6), she said her "suzu" means a bell, but it is uncertain whether her parents had really told her so or it was just her casual remark.
  • She is called "suː" (long vowel) and written in kana "すぅ" (the second is small u), so "SU-METAL" is pronounced as "suːmeṭl".

  • She was born on 1997 Dec. 20th.
  • She has grown up in Hiroshima City (West Japan).
  • In 2002 Nov., she won the grand pix of Bandai Jeweldrop (toy cosmetics) image girl contest, and she appeared in its ads in 2003.
  • In 2006 spring, she started taking lessons of dance and singing at Actor's School Hiroshima.
  • In 2007 spring, she won the second prize of Amuse's starkids audition and she contracted with Amuse Inc. for artist management.
  • In early 2008, she was chosen as a member of Karen Girl's (可憐Girl's) with one year older MUTÔ Ayami & SHIMA Yuika to sing the opening themes of the anime "Zettai Karen Children" (絶対可憐チルドレン; Absolutely Lovely Children).
  • In 2008 Jun.- 2009 Mar., Karen Girl's released two CD singles & one CD album, and appeared in one big anime song festival & several events, and it was dissolved because the anime ended.
  • In 2009 Mar. & 2010 Jun., she performed in a musical drama "冒険者たち" (Bokensha-tachi; a.k.a. The Adventure of Ganba).
  • In 2010 Apr., she joined Sakura Gakuin as an original member.
  • In 2012 Mar., she moved to Tokyo with her mother & second sister, leaving her father & first sister in Hiroshima.
  • On 2013 Mar. 31st, she graduated from Sakura Gakuin because of its age limitation.

  • She has two older sisters. The second is Himeka NAKAMOTO (中元 日芽香 a.k.a. Hime-tan) who joined an idol girl group "Nogizaka46" (乃木坂46) in 2012 Mar.
  • She has said many several times she wants to be a singer-songwriter in the future, and she mentioned YUI (who sang "Good-bye Days" etc.) in 2013 Mar. and Gabrielle APLIN in 2014 Feb.

YUIMETAL

  • Her real name is Yui MIZUNO / 水野 由結 (みずの ゆい).
  • "結"(yui, yuu) means binding some things in one, doing up hair, customary collaboration in farming, etc. "由"(yuu, yoshi) means a reason/cause, but I guess this kanji is added only to read "結" as "yui" since it can be also read as "musubu" (the meanings are alike).

  • She was born on 1999 Jun. 20th.
  • She has grown up in Kanagawa Pref. (probably in Kawasaki City, near Tokyo, since she is a fan of a pro football club "Kawasaki Frontale").
  • In 2007, she appeared in a kids fashion magazine "Kids Style" as an amateur model.
  • In 200X, she started taking dance lessons (apart from Amuse Inc.)
  • In 2008, she appeared in a TV CM of children's clothing after she contracted with Amuse Inc.
  • In 2009, she performed in some TV dramas as a child actress.
  • In 2010 May&Jun., she performed in a stage drama "おくりびと" (Okuri-bito).
  • In 2010 Aug., she & Miss Moa joined Sakura Gakuin (four months delay was a gimmick and they were substantially original members).
  • On 2015 Mar. 29th, she graduated from Sakura Gakuin because of its age limitation.

  • She has one older brother & one younger brother.
  • She is a huge fan of Karen Girl's, and she says its "Over The Future" encouraged her very very much when one of her family was seriously ill in 2008.
  • She is a huge fan of Ariana GRANDE since she watched a TV drama "Victorious" (in 2013?).

MOAMETAL

  • Her real name is Moa KIKUCHI / 菊地 最愛 (きくち もあ).
  • "最" (mottomo) means "most" and "愛" (ai) means love. Usually "最愛" is read as "sai-ai" and means "the most loved ...", but her parents meant "最も愛を大切に" (Mottomo ai o taisetu ni!; Cherish the love most!), and this is her catchphrase.

  • She was born on 1999 Jul. 4th.
  • She has grown up in Nagoya City (Central Japan).
  • In 200X, started taking classic guitar lessons (but she seems not to have had enough time for guitar practice).
  • In 2007 Aug., she won the second prize of the Ciao Girl audition, and she contracted with Amuse Inc.
  • In 2007?-2009?, she went to Amuse's Osaka branch once a month to take lessons.
  • In 2008-2010, she appeared in Ciao (a girls' comic magazine) as a fashion model, and in some TV CM (McDonald's, etc).
  • In 2010 Aug., she & Miss Yui joined Sakura Gakuin (four months delay was a gimmick and they were substantially original members).
  • In 2011 autumn, she moved to Yokohama (near Tokyo) with her family.
  • On 2015 Mar. 29th, she graduated from Sakura Gakuin because of its age limitation.

  • She has no sister & no brother.
  • she loves idols and animes since she watched an anime "Kirarin Revolution" (きらりん☆レボリューション; Sparkling Revolution; 2006-2009) in which a girl became an J-pop idol.
  • She is a huge fan of ℃-ute (Cute; one of sister groups of Morning Musume.), especially Airi SUZUKI (鈴木愛理), since BABYMETAL & C-ute appeared together in an idol festival in 2012 Apr.

Which is Yui chan and which is Moa chan?

  • Miss Yui's hair has a natural wave. / Miss Moa's hair is straight.
  • Miss Moa's face is relatively triangular. / Miss Yui's face is relatively round.
  • YUIMETAL wears a glove on the right hand & MOAMETAL on the left now, but they wore it oppositely until 2014 Mar.
  • MOAMETAL often stands stage left & YUIMETAL on stage right, but their positions differ depending on the tunes and they interchange their positions even in one tune.
  • Miss Moa's voice is brighter. / Miss Yui's voice is softer.
  • MOAMETAL's voice comes from the right channel and YUIMETAL's from the left in "4 no Uta" & "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI" of the first CD album.

Overtures

Included in the BD "LIVE - LEGEND I, D, Z, APOCALYPSE -" (released on 2013 Nov. 20), also included in the limited edition "Ki", "Tsu" and "Ne" of "MEGITSUNE" respectively (released on 2013 Jun. 19).
These are the introductory narrations for their live performances.


Overture for Legend "I"   on 2012 Oct. 6th

Recently the world was ruled by the big power "Idols" with their overwhelming magic.
Including "the media", "the politics", "the economy", all were controlled by the Idols...
The music other than the idol songs was seen as harmful, and the metal was not an exception.
The metallers who were robbed of their soul prayed for the restoration of the metal.
Before long, the prayers reached "the Fox God" who is in charge of the metal.
The Fox God named three girls, SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL,
"BABYMETAL" meaning "the birth of the new metal",
and, as the dark heroines of the idol scene, has sent them down to this world.
Everyone, soon comes the opening of "the Metal Resistance"!


Overture for Legend "D"   on 2012 Dec. 20th

"The Metal Resistance"
It is the holy war.
It is the holy light-of-night.
Silent Night, Holy Night.
Now is the time when the big power "Idols" are in their heyday.
This is the world where the music other than the idol songs is persecuted.

The prayers of the apostles that wish the restoration of the metal
reached "the Fox God" who is in charge of the metal.
The Fox God, aiming to restore the soul of the metal,
summoned three girls, SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL,
named them "BABYMETAL",
and, as the dark heroines of idol scene, has sent them down to this world.

BABYMETAL is the incarnation of the Fox God.
The descent of the god needs no words.
BABYMETAL is the incarnation of the Fox God.
The descent of the god is never permanent.
Everyone, the signal fire for "the Metal Resistance" has been sent up!!


Overture for Legend "Z"   on 2013 Feb. 1st

Long, long and long ago,
there was a girl who stood up against the big power "Idols" and fought bravely.
"The Crimson Seven Days"
After the fight, the girl's soul became "the Crimson Flame",
and continued blazing for seven days.
Then, the girl's soul went up guided by Fox-Squirrel.

When, above the Valley of the Metal, the Golden Moon overlaps the Crimson Sun,
the goddess veiled in holy flame shall revive again.

I think you told me before
your TV set has a fairly big screen.

I wanna watch. I wanna watch
you seeing the anime.
I wanna watch. I wanna watch
your face in profile.
You don't have to pay attention to me.
Alright. Let's have something to drink!

Can you believe in me and the animation?
It is the never interrupted thread.

With you, I wanna see the anime. Wanna see the anime. Wanna see the anime.

Uki Uki * Midnight

Let's turn off the light and charge ourselves with energy.
Now seems to begin   [[a hilarious midnight.]]
Let's write "serious" and read it as "really".
It's time to get hyper under the sparkling mirror ball.

Squid, squid. I want to eat squid arms.
I prefer dried squid.
No, no. It makes you like a middle-aged man.
Why don't we choose cute sweets?

Hey, boys and girls,
packing lots of your sweets and your dreams,
now gather
in my house! It's a party night.

You and me.   [[You and me.]]
Tonight is a cheerful,   [[hilarious midnight.]]
Curfew,   [[Closing time,]]
no, no, non.   [[no way!]]
It continues still more.   [[Glittering bright!]]

Let's turn off the light and charge ourselves with energy.

Midnight.

Hey, boys and girls,
eating lots of the sweets and the dreams,
now jump out
of my house! It's a party time.

You and me.   [[You and me.]]
Tonight is a cheerful,   [[hilarious midnight.]]
Curfew,   [[Closing time,]]

It continues still more.   [[Glittering bright!]]

I'm becoming sleepy and I feel full.
But now is coming the climax.
My eyes get bleary, I rub them, and "Really?"
Let's get hyper!   [[Glittering bright!]]

Let's turn off the light and charge ourselves with energy.
Now seems to begin   [[a hilarious midnight.]]
Let's write "serious" and read it as "really".

BABYMETAL DEATH

Released on 2013 Jan. 9th, coupled with IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI (included in the limited edition).
Lyric: KITSUNE of METAL GOD / Music: KITSUNE of METAL GOD / Arr.: Yuyoyuppe

Usually, this is the opening tune of BABYMETAL's concert.

BABYMETAL DEATH (We Are BABYMETAL)

B x A x B x Y x M x E x T x A x L   DEATH!!



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

The official lyric really consists of only the above one line. Maybe the staff thought too many "DEATH"s are inappropriate.

The Japanese word "desu" (です) is a copula (= to be). The Eastern Japanese almost drop "u" of this word, so the word "desu/des" sounds like "death". And someone started writing "DEATH" instead of "です" (desu). It makes sense only where the Japanese word "desu" is expected to come. The title "BABYMETAL DEATH" means only "We are BABYMETAL." No relation to the death itself.

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 "です" (desu) were replaced with "DEATH" to emphasize his character. With such an air, it will work well. Without it, it won't work.

[ii] Is This Death Metal?

There is a genre named "Death Metal". The sound of this tune seems to fall within that genre, and the lyric writer may have put many "DEATH"s to emphasize the Death-Metal-ness. It might be alright to use many "DEATH"s without thinking of death if some of Death Metal bands also chose their style just to differentiate themselves rather than driven by the feeling about death. But I don't know the Death Metal well.

Onedari DaiSakusen (Beg-Dad-for-it Operation)

Tactic 1:
I flatter more than usual.
I give Dad a shoulder massage, and immediately...
[I love you, Dad.]

Tactic 2:
Thank you for your hard work. You are my god.
Of course my favorite type is...
[I love you, Dad.]

Lies are alright.   [No need to restrain!]
Keep on praising!   [Flattery, flattery!]
I want that one.   [A little more bolder!]
I want this one too.

[With angel's face, devil's whisper.]
[Rather than preaching, give me the money!]
[With angel's face, devil's whisper.]

[I will become your bride, Dad.]

Let's go! Let's go!
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.
Make a cute sulky face and keep on claiming!
The strongest   [oh],   the greatest   [oh].
Dad is about to be cheated by my angelic smile. : P
Let's go! Let's go!
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.
I will get it in secret from Mom.
The strongest   [oh],   the greatest   [oh].
I beg. I beg.
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.

I entreat.   [This is the last.]   I entreat.   [Always]
If I marry, I will marry after all... [You, Dad.]
I entreat.   [This is the last.]   I entreat.   [Always]
I play the spoiled kid.   [BLACK BABYMETAL]
I entreat.   [This is the last.]  I entreat.   [Always]
Once in my lifetime.   [The first and the last.]
I entreat.   [This is the last.]  I entreat.   [Always]
I play the perfect little devil.   [BLACK BABYMETAL]

Because I am a girl,
I love sparkling things.
I love cute things.
I love delicious things.

One for the money!
Two for the money!
Three for the money!
Money! Money! Money! Money!

One for the money!
Two for the money!
Three for the money!
Money! Money! Money! Money!

One for the money!
Two for the money!
Three for the money!
Money! Money! Money! Money!

One for the money!
Two for the money!
Three for the money!
Money! Money! Money!

Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!
I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg!

Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!
I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg! I beg!

Let's go! Let's go!
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.
Make a cute sulky face and keep on claiming!
The strongest   [oh],   the greatest   [oh].
Dad is about to be cheated by my angelic smile. : P
Let's go! Let's go!
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.
I will get it in secret from Mom.
The strongest   [oh],   the greatest   [oh].
I beg. I beg.
Beg-Dad-for-it operation.

I entreat.   [This is the last.]   I entreat.   [Always]
If I marry, I will marry after all... [You, Dad.]
I entreat.   [This is the last.]   I entreat.   [Always]
I play the spoiled kid.   [BLACK BABYMETAL]
I entreat.   [This is the last.]  I entreat.   [Always]
Once in my lifetime.   [The first and the last.]
