First, if you haven’t listened to Smile-Gang yet, I suggest loading it up. It contains surprising parts that words won’t be able to describe. You’ll know whenever you hit upon that point. 😛
The beginning few minutes of this week’s Smile-Gang is self-explanatory. Nana is singing clips of hit songs from 1980 (the year of her birth). Lovely voice and quality as always~
Misato thinks they should stick with this kind of opening from now on, but Nana is quite reluctant about it. 😄 Though she’s reluctant mostly because she fears the idea of having to know so many hit songs. Nonetheless, she didn’t outright reject the idea. 😄
Anyway, straight to Head Nanau corner…
The first meeting for Live Union has taken place. It basically consisted of talking about any idea that comes to mind, regardless of it being possible or impossible. Especially for idea/themes involving the QVC Marine Field because it will be the first completely ceiling-less performance.
As it is going to be in the summer, Aniki (from the Cherry Boys) suggested something along the lines of jumping out of the water (something he picked up from being a part of other live concerts)… Nana described it as similar to Suiton no jutsu (Naruto fans should be familiar with this one), where they’re performing under a veil (more like streams) of water. Too many potential problems with that idea, so it’s already written out. XDD;;
After the CM, it’s the letter-reading corner.
First mail is someone trying to explain why Nana couldn’t win anything from the scratch cards. He believes it is due to her overly strong desire to win. He says this because, once, when there was this draw where the participant either wins a pack of tissue or a trip to Hawaii. His wife had wanted tissue for immediate use and thus went for the draw — and won the trip to Hawaii instead. Lol. The wife was actually a little bit disappointed because she wanted the tissue. 😄
As for the guy himself, he bought himself a scratch card once (not expecting to win) and ended up with 10000 yen.
Hence his theory of “the secret to winning anything chance-related is to possess a lack of desire.”
^For better or worse, I’m among the people who believe in that theory due to personal experience… ^^;;
The second mail is about the person finding out about his sempai’s past unexpectedly. He borrowed a textbook from this sempai to study for an exam (of which the sempai happily gave to him), only to find a bookmark with the words “I’ll propose to _____-san if I pass!” written in red ink over and over again. In fact, he said it looked more like a curse to him than anything else. XDD He knows that his sempai is still single as of this day, which means the proposing part must have failed. ^^;; He then asks Nana and Misato if they’ve had similar experiences before.
Misato said she has, although it’s a little different. Someone left behind a notebook and, wanting to find out who it belonged to so that she can return it, she flipped through the pages. The pages were filled with monthly expenses and income… Meaning she found out a bit too much about her friend’s financial life than she intended to… ^^;; Must’ve been quite awkward… Especially when she went to return it.
More CM and then followed by the Marathon mails.
There’s a mail sent in from Germany. The person is a Japanese student studying abroad in Germany who ran 4.5km. So any of you outside of Japan thinking to join in the marathon, feel free! =D
Anyway, the sum of this week’s distance (from everyone combined — including those whose mails were not read) was 1142.3km. Quite a jump from last week’s sum.
Combined with the distance ran last week, there’s still only 4564.3km left. Nana thinks the distance would be covered by the first day of Live Union. From the looks for it, there’s a possibility the distance won’t last until Live Union. 😛
And that pretty much brings Smile-Gang #524 to an end.
But not before Nana asking if Misato did any running. Lol.
So did she run?
…Surprisingly yes! :O
She ran 1km! And so that brings the remaining distance down to 4563.3km.
Heh. Looking forward to the upcoming Smile-Gang to see how many more kilometers have been ran. 😛
