Iwahashi Genki x Kishi Yuta x Takahashi Fu
In this way, it came to the point that what they'd cut out and turn their focus away from was cooly decided for by these three guys. What do these three want to try doing in 2013?
① I want to try singing a ballad song! Because recently, most of the songs I sing have been on the headset, I want to learn how to show my skill at singing and charm everyone with just a song, like Kyomoto-kun and Jesse-kun. I need to practice at karaoke!
② I want to become close with a senpai! Tsukada-kun, from ABC-Z, said to me, "If anything's up, contact me!" and I was really happy. The next person I want to become close with is Kouchi-kun. Because he does stuff like fiddle with the clothes I'm wearing, he's a really kind person.
③ I'll get a new smart phone! The one I'm using right now is a smart phone, but it's a pretty old type. But with sort of thing, I don't know with what timing I should get a new one. I'm the type of person who worries a lot before buying. Both my mom and my younger sister have also been using the same phones for four years. Seems like we're that type of family (laugh) Ah, but my older sister alone will start wanting a new cell phone right as soon as the new model comes out.
① I want to try going on a trip! For one month, going to a bunch of onsen seems nice. Somewhere inside of me, there's a place that's like an old man (laugh). Ever since I was small, I've really liked food like cheese otsumami*, and stuff. After bathing in the onsen, eating snacks and drinking oolong tea… even just imagining it is the best!
② I'll treat my friend to a meal! I really like to make people happy. One thing I want to try once is to take a friend out on his birthday and then, in the middle of the meal, to say "I have to make a phone call" and leave my seat, but instead go to the register and pay for the whole meal… that sort of thing. Isn't that cool?
③ I'll challenge acrobatics I saw "DREAM BOYS," and I was totally, totally moved! But in the past, I tried to challenge doing a back flip, but I thought, "It's not for me," and was self-conscious. I got my sister to film me while I was doing a back flip, but it was a huge failure because I fell on my head, and the video became my own personal scene from hell** (laugh) Therefore, I want to rely on some sort of method or tool and try again.
*Translator's note: otsumami are Japanese snacks meant to go with alcohol. They're something usually associated with older people.
**Translator's note: Kishi refers to the film footage of him falling as his own 地獄絵図 (jigoku ezu), which is a type of Japanese historical Buddhist artwork depicting scenes from hell.
① I want to try acting in a drama, or something! The drama I'm really into right now is "Runaway," in which KAT-TUN's Ueda-kun appeared. Breaking out of prison for the sake of the person you love, or the thing that's most important to you… I was moved. That sort of thrilling, moving drama is good, or I'd also like to play the lead role of a rider, or a role where my character strains his whole body to save people. My ideal is a hero-type role.
② I'll buy a watch! The watch I'm using now is a really cheap one I bought a long time ago and have used since. Therefore, right about now, I think I want one that has a lot of impact in one shot. The one I have right now has a metal band, so I think I want a leather band next time. When "Johnny's World" ends safely, I think maybe I'll buy one as a reward to myself for working hard.
③ I'll become just a little more like an adult! Without fail, I'm always seen as younger than I am. Even though I'm in high school, people always guess, "Are you a second year* in junior high school?" and I get totally crestfallen. I know it's a good thing to be seen as fresh, but for the time being, I want to be seen as my own age.
*Translator's note: This translates to 8th grade in America/Canada
