Though my tests finished on thur, I was busy on fri & sat, so I didn't have time to come back to LJ. I miss all my friends~~~ *glomps all of you* But I still have 3 school projects due this month T.T So I may not be so active on LJ for a while... To those on my flist, sorry if I can't comment/ spam your LJs as much^^ But I'll still post translations here & then :D
And here's a (very) short one for you guys: Translation from MORE (Oct 2008). I didn't translate their individual interviews but I translated this short Q&A section. Quite interesting^^ Enjoy!
Scans credit to the lovely yuckie_chan! Download the full high-quality scans from her community arashi_yuuki!
...Huh? Pikanichi Triple?! *Lol*
*Okay, as usual, words in grey are my comments/ rants. And as some words are hard to translate, I added some explanations in brackets^^
As Arashi, you'll defintely not lose to anyone in...
Jun: Unique slackness (laughs) (Slackness as in being relaxed, not strict)
Nino: Good relationship/ closeness.
Aiba: Having no barriers between each other.
Sho: Amount of smiles.
Ohno: The good atmosphere between the 5 of us.
Aww~ I really like Nino, Aiba & Ohno's answers! Arashi is really close ne~ And Sho's answer is very sweet too~ Jun's one is cute^^
If the 5 of you were to do a movie again, what kind of movie do you want to do?
Jun: Basketball movie, since there is 5 of us.
Nino: Whatever that is offered to us is good enough (laughs)
Aiba: Intense action movie (laughs)
Sho: Movie about youths, with friendship as the theme
Ohno: PIKA★★★NICHI TRIPLE!
Pikanichi Triple?! *ROFL* Ohno, your answers are always so cute! XD Okay, so Pikanichi Triple will be a movie about 5 youths who like playing basketball & er, throw in some gang fights. XD *Lol* But yes, I do want another Arashi movie!!!
With regards to work, what promise do you make with yourself/ what expectations do you have?
Jun: Not to influence & not to be influenced.
Nino: Becoming able to enjoy being at the workplace.
Aiba: To do my best without holding back.
Sho: Don't get used to it. (Here he doesn't mean he's not used to work. He means keeping work fresh/new/interesting, so that he doesn't find it a boring routine)
Ohno: Do the work that is allocated to me properly.
What kind of image comes up when you think of marriage?
Jun: Light bulb. Having a meal under the lights.
Nino: Wedding ceremony. I haven't seen it before.
Aiba: A detached house. An image of a family.
Sho: Wedding dress. My friends are in a wedding rush now!
Ohno: 2 people who are looking forward to the future. Starting a new life.
Light bulb??? And I can't believe Nino has never attended a wedding O.o Hmm, 4 of them thought of tangible objects but Ohno's answer is kinda... serious/deep? I don't know how to explain^^
What kind of comments makes you happy?
Jun: When people say "Dame da" (Usually dame means "no good" but in this case, it means something like "I can't take it", but with a positive connotation)
Nino: If I can get comments, anything will do.
Aiba: Something like "Hey, you're not bad" (laughs)
Sho: "Baka da ne" (You're an idiot), with love.
Ohno: (Thumbs up) "Saikou!" (You're the best!)
*Lol* Yama pair's answers are cute~

Meme tagged by dvampyrlestat
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.

Next seven sentences:
And here's the truly great thing, I can alter it back. So often when you change the world, you can't change it back. For example, cereal in a bowl knocked onto the floor never gets back in the bowl. It lies in a heap, a monument to the unforgivingly linear one-way nature of time. Likewise, poop that leaks from the side of a diaper can't go back. And so often in life, neither can we. We can only go forward.
From: Autobiography OF A One-Year-Old by Rohan Candappa
