* "Lessons" is my best translation for the concept of naraigoto, which we don't really have in English. It has sort of the connotation of the extracurricular activity you choose to pursue just for yourself. Usually in Japan, it's a musical instrument or something like dance or drawing or calligraphy, separate from the sports clubs done at school.
** This is about 3 million dollars.
***1467 to 1573 CE, the "Warring States" period of Japanese history.
✝ This is the Japanese title of the book My Father's Drago by Ruth Stiles Gannet.
✝✝ Pretty sure that Reia is making fun of the way they phrased the question, using "signature move," which usually implies something to do with martial arts.
Also, I watched King & Queen & Joker last night and OH MY GOD I don't think I've ever had such a wholly positive reaction to a Sexy Zone PV and making in like… ever? I need to watch it again before I can rave on here thoroughly, I think, but oh my god. Also who else caught that amazing loving look between Jinguji and Reia in the making? ♥♥♥
