This CM has been floating around since a couple of days ago… But in case there’s anyone unaware, here are the 2 versions of the CM.
Two things to pay attention to in the CM. Mizuki Nana fans will probably immediately take note of the BGM — which is among Nana’s latest (upcoming) songs — Jikuu Sapphire (literally translates to Time-space Sapphire).
The second thing to note is the seiyuu involved. As Nana wrote on her blog (and written in the title of this post), Sugita and Nana play the roles of Taiyou and Megumi respectively. I’ll be honest, despite the concept of the whole plot & twitter idea being very interesting and creative, I wouldn’t have cared about this CM if not for Nana and Sugita. XDD So good for them to get these 2 involved. XD

We’re back with our silly openings. Let’s admit it, Smile-Gang isn’t Smile-Gang without them. XD

The usual silly opening is not present this week because the first thing Nana says this week was “Let’s do away with the opening silliness.” The reason? They’ve grown. Listeners have grown. They shouldn’t need that anymore.
Being adult is srzbsnz. XD
Announcement first before the usual Smile-Gang…

We open with a shocking confession…?
水樹奈々 スマイルギャング 第514回
Be prepared for a chaotic opening this week. XD If you recall the previous Smile-Gang (#513), you will know that they have called “Antonio Inori” (a play on the name Antonio Inoki). Now you know why Nana was so happy when she won in rock-paper-scissors against Misato last week. Because whoever loses will have to play that role. XDDD
The “daaaa~!!” cracked me up badly. XDD
Misato says she has been scarred now. XD Nana tries to make her feel better by telling her about “equivalent trade.” In return for bad memories, they will have better luck now. How much truth that holds… We will find out near the end.
Now for the rest of Smile-Gang…
Nana: …What do I do, Misato?
Misato: Wh-what happened?
Nana: …It’s over.
^That was the highlight of the most recent Smile-Gang (#513) for me. XD Except that doesn’t happen until the second half of Smile-Gang (after the Quiz corner).
Before I start, in case there’s anyone who cares about why this update is later than usual… In between injuring myself by falling down the stairs and currently battling a cold + headache (among other things that happened over the last 2 weeks), I really didn’t have the energy. But I’m still alive so all is good. =D
