[Choko-Nai-Pon '14 Feb.17]

In short: BABYMETAL were tense when appearing on Music Station.
This is a copy of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGiVVzNV4fQ with an English subtitle.
This is a short radio program "Chokotto Naito Nippon" (= a bit of 'All Night Nippon') broadcast by Nippon Broadcasting System on 2014 Feb. 17th (#1 of 5).

I am sorry if I have mistaken the voices of SU-METAL, YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL. The strange male laughter you may hear is probably the voice of the assistant director beside Mr. NISHIKAWA.

Takanori NISHIKAWA (aka T.M.Revolution) is a Japanese rock/pop singer, and he has some radio programs.


Notes

  1. This is probably exaggerated a bit, but the average age of radio listeners is getting older because most young people don't start listening to the radio but the people who was young keep on listening. Mr. NISHIKAWA himself is 43 yr. as of 2014 Feb.
  2. The Summer Sonic is one of the biggest music festivals in Japan, Loud Park is the biggest heavy metal festival in Japan, and Inazuma Rock Festival is hosted by Mr. NISHIKAWA, held at Shiga Pref. (his birth place).
  3. About 13,000 gathered at Yoyogi, and nearly 20,000 gathered at Inazuma. She may have got a wrong impression because Inazuma was an open-air festival.
  4. The event is named "All Live Nippon Vol.2", and the weird bands he refers to are Golden Bomber and Man with a Mission.
  5. Music Station is a very famous music TV program in Japan. He and BABYMETAL appeared on Feb. 7th.
  6. Most in these programs Mr. NISHIKAWA calls BABYMETAL SU-META chan, YUIMETA chan & MOAMETA chan. This way of calling is rare (though BEBIMETA is common). Most people call BABYMETAL SU (chan), YUI (chan) & MOA (chan), or SU-METAL (san) YUIMETAL (san) & MOAMETAL (san).
  7. One should not say like this, but Mr. NISHIKAWA is 161cm tall, SU-METAL is taller than or equal to him, YUIMETAL is 153cm tall, and MOAMETAL is 151cm tall, as of 2014 Feb.

00:00:04,400 --> 00:00:10,900
This program is brought to you
by S.T. "Shooshuuriki" (room deodorant).

3
00:00:20,500 --> 00:00:22,900
Good evening. This is NISHIKAWA speaking.

4
00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:26,400
In the Winter Olympic Games now held in Sochi,

5
00:00:26,500 --> 00:00:32,700
people pay attention to the female athletes who fight
on world's stages, such as Mao ASADA, a skater.

6
00:00:32,800 --> 00:00:34,900
As I announced a little last week,

7
00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:42,200
I'll present this week's "Chokotto Naito Nippon" with
the female artists who draw attention from the world.

8
00:00:42,300 --> 00:00:46,400
I introduce them right away. This is BABYMETAL.

9
00:00:46,500 --> 00:00:47,800
Hi. I am SU-METAL.

10
00:00:47,900 --> 00:00:48,900
I am YUIMETAL.

11
00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:49,800
I'm MOAMETAL.

12
00:00:49,900 --> 00:00:53,800
We are BABYMETAL. We beg your kindness.

13
00:00:53,900 --> 00:00:57,900
[TN] You are cute. You are thoroughly cute.

14
00:00:58,000 --> 00:01:05,700
This program is broadcasted for mainly
the listeners older than your fathers,

15
00:01:05,800 --> 00:01:09,600
mainly the listeners in their fifties.  *1

16
00:01:09,700 --> 00:01:10,300
[BM] Oh.

17
00:01:10,400 --> 00:01:15,500
I explain BABYMETAL in the way
easy for the fifties to understand.

18
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:22,400
They are the metal music unit of three girls,
and they're also the idols.

19
00:01:22,500 --> 00:01:27,900
Recently they have appeared on some music festivals
such as Loud Park, the Summer Sonic,  *2

20
00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:31,200
and also our Inazuma Rock Festival.  *2
Thank you for your appearance.

21
00:01:31,300 --> 00:01:32,300
[BM] Thank you for your invitation.

22
00:01:32,400 --> 00:01:35,500
[TN] Your performance livened us up.
There was a stir in the backstage.

23
00:01:35,600 --> 00:01:37,500
[BM] Oh. Really.
[TN] Thank you for your performance.

24
00:01:37,600 --> 00:01:43,900
Well, in the event of Nippon Broadcasting
held on January 18th,

25
00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:45,700
we were lined up together.

26
00:01:45,800 --> 00:01:48,300
How about that event?

27
00:01:48,400 --> 00:01:52,300
I guess you've got used to such events recently.

28
00:01:52,400 --> 00:02:00,000
[SU] But the venue, Yoyogi National Gymnasium,  *3
is the biggest venue that we have ever performed in...

29
00:02:00,100 --> 00:02:00,700
[TN] Really?

30
00:02:00,800 --> 00:02:03,100
[SU] so we were tense at first.

31
00:02:03,200 --> 00:02:05,900
[TN] Eh? You didn't look like that at all.
[SU] Really?

32
00:02:06,000 --> 00:02:12,800
[TN] Well, weird artists were lined up for the event,
so I and you were rather ordinary.  *4

33
00:02:12,900 --> 00:02:19,500
There really gathered weird people.
I was afraid that they would do harm to you.

34
00:02:19,600 --> 00:02:23,100
Well, I mean the guys with white-painted faces.
[BM] Yeah.

35
00:02:23,200 --> 00:02:28,900
[TN] I was watching out for their behavior
not to do harm to you.

36
00:02:29,000 --> 00:02:31,600
[TN] More recently, we were together on Music Station.
[BM] Yes.  *5

37
00:02:31,700 --> 00:02:33,900
[TN] I found you were very tense.

38
00:02:34,000 --> 00:02:36,100
[MOA] I got tense.
[YUI] Very tense, indeed.

39
00:02:36,200 --> 00:02:40,100
[SU] Yes. Beside me MOAMETAL was saying
"I get tense. I get tense." during the program.

40
00:02:40,200 --> 00:02:41,600
[TN] I saw that. Just before your performance,

41
00:02:41,700 --> 00:02:46,700
MOAMETAL & YUIMETAL were holding
SU-METAL's arms from both sides.  *6

42
00:02:46,800 --> 00:02:51,500
MOAMETAL was rubbing her hand
along SU-METAL's arm,

43
00:02:51,600 --> 00:02:53,500
saying "I get tense. I get tense".

44
00:02:53,600 --> 00:02:56,700
SU-METAL seemed to want to say
"Don't touch so much".

45
00:02:56,800 --> 00:03:03,200
By the way, during the event of Nippon Broadcasting,
I've got a feeling.

46
00:03:03,300 --> 00:03:07,300
SU-METAL stands in the middle,
YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL stand on both sides,

47
00:03:07,400 --> 00:03:12,100
and you make a pyramid shape.
I want this balance to be kept as long as possible.

48
00:03:12,200 --> 00:03:14,800
I want you not to grow tall if possible,

49
00:03:14,900 --> 00:03:18,900
so I want you to be kept
in the boxes just fit to your current size.  *7

50
00:03:19,000 --> 00:03:21,300
[MOA] Eh?
[TN] I've got such a feeling then.

51
00:03:21,400 --> 00:03:24,500
[SU] Recently Yui & Moa have got close to me
in height. I'm rather afraid to be overtaken.

52
00:03:24,600 --> 00:03:25,600
[TN] Are you? [SUYUI] Yes.

53
00:03:25,700 --> 00:03:27,900
[TN] After all, it's the period of growth for you.
[YUIMOA] Yes.

54
00:03:28,000 --> 00:03:31,500
[TN] But I don't want this balance to be lost,

55
00:03:31,600 --> 00:03:34,000
so the only way is that
SU-METAL grows taller than now.

56
00:03:34,100 --> 00:03:37,200
[BM] Wao!
[TN] You shouldn't say wao, indeed.

57
00:03:37,300 --> 00:03:42,800
Well then, today's program has been
the time to introduce BABYMETAL.

58
00:03:42,900 --> 00:03:49,900
I've informed the listeners that
BABYMETAL will appear every day in this week.

59
00:03:50,000 --> 00:03:54,900
It's very interesting to know
what they do in their daily life.

60
00:03:55,000 --> 00:03:59,600
I will ask them that tomorrow and after.

61
00:03:59,700 --> 00:04:04,400
It's time to say good-bye to BABYMETAL,
listening to this tune.

62
00:04:04,500 --> 00:04:07,700
Please introduce the tune.

63
00:04:07,800 --> 00:04:15,900
[SU] Now, please listen to BABYMETAL singing
[BM] GimiChoko!! (Give Me Chocolate!!)
