Final entry （＝^エ^=）
I am indeed very grateful to everyone in these past 16 days. (＝^エ^=） “A HAPPY NEWS YEAR CONCERT 2006” had come to a closure and 吾輩 (Wagahai – meaning "I") has accomplished his mission.（＝^エ^=）
Many things have happened in these 16 days, and unquestionably, Wagahai really like NEWS.（＝^エ^=） In this last entry, I would like to talk about every NEWS members.（＝^エ^=）
First of all, is Yamashita Tomohisa-sama.（＝^エ^=） You are the king of idols（＝^エ^=）really!（＝^エ^=） A prince of a dazzling palace（＝^エ^=） but not a おっぺけペー（＝^エ^=）even if anything goes wrong, you continue to shine. From now on, please continue to lead NEWS （＝^エ^=） If Wagahai is to sing “Senshu Amigo” in KTV, please allow me to sing Akira’s part.（＝^エ^=) Kon-Kon（＝^エ^=）
Next will be Ryo Nishikio aniki.（＝^エ^=）Aniki had his solo concert, Kanjani 8 related work and was involved in 2 dramas last year. Even when his workload was so heavy, aniki still claimed he wants to work 3 times as hard. Is his energy infinite?（＝^エ^=）Aniki is really the man of all men,（＝^エ^=）and indeed deserves the claim of being wild, cool and having a venom mouth.（＝^エ^=） Even if that’s the case, the fuming look of aniki when he failed to eat the strawberries was very adorable. But, to peep at a bathing Kato Shigeaki and to scare him out of his wits doesn’t seemed too right.（＝^エ^=） From then on, Kato Shigeaki is always on his guard.（＝^エ^=）
To Koyama Keiichiro（＝^エ^=） has always been caring for Kato Shigeaki（＝^エ^=）thinking about Kato Shigeaki saying things like, “It is because of the presence of Koyama that I can work hard till today.”, or sometimes wondering if Koyama Keiichiro and Kato Shigeaki are really best friends（＝^エ^=）This time round, these 2 people discussed about the concert, and have both of you done everything that you all had wanted to?（＝^エ^=）You must also work hard for [Ns aoi]（＝^エ^=）seems like a sluggish role（＝^エ^=）but Koyama Keiichiro（＝^エ^=）you have too many likable points（＝^エ^=）Wagahai knew all along that you have been quite distracted while dancing with everyone.（＝^エ^=）You must dance better the next time we meet（＝^エ^=）and also your singing…（＝^エ^=）Kato Shigeaki has nothing to comment regarding this.（＝^エ^=）
TO Kusano Hironori（＝^エ^=）You are the mood maker of NEWS（＝^エ^=）always making the members laugh（＝^エ^=）but you are more interesting in the backstage.（＝^エ^=）Do demonstrate your humor on stage some day.（＝^エ^=）And also, you look adorable when preparing MC speech（＝^エ^=）just that it seemed that nothing important was written down.（＝^エ^=）But Kusano Hironori dances really well.（＝^エ^=）that serious look you have while dancing,（＝^エ^=）is very charming too（＝^エ^=） just that it will be better if your curly hair is slightly straighter.（＝^エ^=）
DEAR Masuda Takahisa, your smile is truly great（＝^エ^=）I’m sure this kind of smile possesses the power of letting people feel blessed （＝^エ^=）You weren’t listening while we were discussing about the concert and always repeating the same things. We intended to create an interesting mood, but nobody will blame Masuda Takahisa even if you only talk about boring stuff.（＝^エ^=）And Masuda Takahisa is very passionate about learning（＝^エ^=）went to many different concerts and stole many great ideas, and adopted these ideas to create a very wonderful concert.（＝^エ^=）This time round, Masuda Takahisa’s opinions had become more constructive.（＝^エ^=）Since you voiced out so many great opinions, then you ought to listen to what the staff and other members have to say.（＝^エ^=）Masuda Takahisa is more interesting on the stage than at the backstage.（＝^エ^=）Though he would be more loved by the rest if he is more interesting at the backstage.（＝^エ^=）
Tegoshi Yuya（＝^エ^=）I’m often taken aback by your serious looks.（＝^エ^=）Although you are the most green among all the members, you always say excellent things during interviews. And you rise early in the morning in order to sound your best during concerts.（＝^エ^=）Kato Shigeaki is indeed impressed by this act of yours.（＝^エ^=）And feels that Tegoshi Yuya’s voice is the voice of an angel（＝^エ^=）Become better and better, and use your voice to inspire many people.（＝^エ^=）Just that whenever Tegoshi Yuya bathe in Kato Shigeaki’s bathroom, you will return to your own room with the towel wrapped around your waist, but isn’t that Kato Shigeaki’s towel?（＝^エ^=）Somehow or other, turning into someone who feels no guilt.（＝^エ^= ） He did not mention anything in the end as he did not notice it. And seriously troubling over how he’s going to dry himself with a small towel.（＝^エ^=）Even though his body became naturally dried in the end.（＝^エ^=）
Lastly, is Kato Shigeaki（＝^エ^=）nothing much to say to you but please quickly heal your waist. （＝^エ^=）Is your solo a success?（＝^エ^=）Wakahai feels that it is a big success.（＝^エ^=）Seems to love composing very much,（＝^エ^=） Do adopt more great things to produce great songs.（＝^エ^=）Being defeated by 4 people in these 16 days,（＝^エ^=）and to strive very hard in the hope that you can win these 4 people someday.（＝^エ^=）Uhm, although it seems impossible（＝^エ^=）
Very thankful to all the fans who have been reading for the past 16 days（＝^エ^=）, For those who have finished reading this, is it because you like Wakahai, or you like Kato Shigeaki very much, or you feel that it is very interesting, or are you simply bored?（＝^エ^=）Wakahai shall continue to stay in Osaka and sneak into someone’s kotatsu (heater under a table)（＝^エ^=）If there’s anything, just call me.（＝^エ^=）When you call me, I might have a column again.（＝^エ^=）
Wakahai is Shige.（＝^エ^=）
I like the part where Tegoshi went to Shige's bathroom to bathe.. How come he doesn't bathe in his own room? maybe he's afraid.. haha.. And also the part about Koyama wondering whether he and Shige are really best friends or not.. stop thinking about such profound stuff..
Compared to Koyama's, I think Shige one has more depth but Koyama's one is definitely more amusing and entertaining.. hope to read more of their entries!
Thank you so very much, fin's sis, for translating to English!! m(_ _)m I really really should learn more Chinese but there's no time in my schedule. ^^;
I thought it was really interesting to see what Wagahai *coughShigecough* thought of the other members. And I felt like he was being very honest (poor Massu though... ^^; 'more interesting on stage than backstage'.... ^^; ) with everything that he was writing.
Yappari, Tegoshi seems 'stalk' people a lot! After my friend explained to me Koyama's Member Ai from Jan 09 that fin translated, and now being able to properly understand what Shige wrote.. Tegoshi seems bother other people in their baths. XD But really.. he shouldn't be using other people's towels!! That's just.. ^^;;;;
What four people defeated Shige? I'm very confused about that part of the entry... ^^;
To answer Wagahai's question though, not only do I enjoy reading what I can of his J-web messages, because I find them interesting, thoughtful and clever, but yes, I like Katou Shigeaki very much. ^^v
hi again ^^ hahaha... its a miracle.. why did i read shige's jweb? LOL... haha..
btw... what do he mean by tegoshi is the most green among all the members? he's hentai? hohoho... i cant imagine it.. with that angelic face, lies a perverted mind? hahaha.... and i also thinks weird why he wants to take a bath in other bathrooms... and dont even bring his own towel? hahaha.. i'll give him his own towel na.. coz i cant let him use mine either... harharhar *pokes myself*
im glad he thinks the same with me when it is about kusano hehe... and he thinks that massu's smile is really great ^_______^
