[BGM ‘Zero-G’] 

Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Every Friday I respond to the messages received on this show.

First up is one from Arisa-san.
"Good morning. Previously, my friend told me that Kanjani∞’s Ohkura-kun had apparently said that, 'Although I'm otherwise undefeated in relaxing, I still lose to Satoshi-kun'(laughs) Satoshi-kun, what do you think of Ohkura-kun’s ability to relax?”

Seriously? Eh? Do I relax that much? Do I? Well, guess I do…? (laughs)

OhkuChuu[1], now… Well, Chuu’s pretty relaxed too, probably. 

I mean, he’s funny when he’s drunk. Mm. Y’know, I’ve known Chuu since my Kyoto days. Mm. And then… I’ve never worked with him before, but that was that Room Zero short drama series that various Johnnys appeared in. There were quite a few members of Kanjani in it, too. All the people who appeared in it got together once.

So like, we drank, then just when everyone was parting ways, I remember I went with most of Kanjani to another place. So there, Chuu was sitting next to me. So the alchohol was flowing and all of a sudden, Chuu was like,"Satoshi, drink up!" (laughs) 

We didn’t really talk that much. Mm. And then the two of us had our arms around each other’s shoulders and were like, "Cheers! ‘S great, huh?" It was kinda Aiba-chan style.

So I thought, he really can relax! Mm. But, I wonder… Isn’t it both about the same level? On what criteria does he lose to me? I’d like to ask next time. Mm.

I’ll ask!

Next, one from Yuumi-san. 
"Ohno-kun, good morning. I enjoy listening to your show every day. I work in hospitality and every day, I serve people coffee and tea. In the morning, there are a lot of regular customers, so just by looking at their face, I’d remember their preferences, like, "this person’s a hot coffee, black", "this person’s an ice coffee with two sugar syrups" and so on. It’s become something like my special skill. I’m also happiest when I can make my customers happy. Ohno-kun, do you drink coffee or tea? How many sugars or milk? Ohno-kun, please tell me your preferences. Someday, when serving Ohno-kun, I’ll be sure to remember it.”

Ohh. Guess you’d be able to know. For me, I guess it’s coppee. Coffee…(laughs) It’s coffee, coffee!

For coffee, definitely sugar. I’m the sort of person that adds in a ton of sugar. Like seriously, it’s better when it’s sweet. I’m the sort who doesn’t get what’s so tasty about black coffee.

But before I realised it… Somehow… Rather than finding black coffee tasty, like… I find myself drinking black coffee kinda distinguished. So, somehow, I started doing it.

So, um, I’ve never actually drank a whole coffee black before. (laughs)Really. It’s the same anywhere. Even at home, even when I’ve poured it into my cup (black). I’d be drawing and stuff, right? I like to take sips of it. So I can’t just gulp it down. It’s like, I tell myself, this is how black is like. Bit by bit, I’m acquiring a taste for it. I’m really getting fond of it. Sipping it bit by bit. And then while drawing. I like that side of myself.

So I’ve never really drunk it right til the end. Mm. So you can remember that. I’d like you to decide on the right amount for me, Yuumi-san. If I should be served by you, um, a tiny cup’ll do! (laughs)

I’m counting on you!

[BGM ‘Imaging Crazy’]

Right, next from Urara-san. …Sounds familiar.
"Satoshi-kun, good morning. I’ve put my finger in my boyfriend’s nose again.” 
(Oh, here comes!)
"I’ve never really paid attention to how long I do it and at the most, it’s about 30 minutes long, I guess? Currently, I’ve never reached an hour yet. Since he acts as if it’s ticklish, I’m really gentle about it so that he wouldn’t dislike it. I’ve told him, "I’ve quit doing it". Ah, if the chance arises, why not try doing it to Ninomiya-kun or someone? I think it’ll definitely be a laugh.”

Man, that’s funny. Thank you very much. For being so detailed. But since you’ve come this far, I’d like to see the face of your boyfriend with your finger in his nose. Could you somehow take a photo of that? Um, I’d like you to take a photo of his normal, unaware-of-the-camera face with your finger in his nose for 30 minutes. 

So Urara-san, I’d like you take a photo of him without him realising your finger’s in his nose. And then if he gives his permission, I’d like you to send in the photo.

That’ll be the conclusion for me. (laughs) For this series. (laughs) I’d like to see that! Urara-san, I’ll be awaiting this last favour!

And so with that, the weekly Friday messages have been answered. I’ll be awaiting your mail. The address is I’ll be waiting for you to send me lots of messages.

See you next week; this was Ohno Satoshi!
