[Radio] Arashi Discovery 17Dec14 / Arashi Discovery del 17Dic14

Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Here’s today’s thought of the day; come on!

"To paint a picture on water."[1]

[BGM ‘Daremo Shiranai’]

What’s that, I wonder? 
Now this… No matter how hard you try to paint a picture on the surface of water, it won’t remain. This is a phrase meaning that acts in vain will only lead to fleeting things disappearing again.

Mm. But well, for me, it’d probably be that, right? When I finally come up with choreography and when I pass it on to the members, they immediately… immediately learn it. 'Ah, I'd spent so many days on it! They immediately…(laughs) …learned it!’ That’s how it feels.

That’s right! Please hear me out. Man, um, the other time, I asked for choreography - previously, I asked for choreography teachers - choreographers - to submit their thoughts. We received a whole bunch. Look! (flipping paper noises) That’s all of them! There’s a whole ton of them. Out of all these, I think I’ll read at least one of ‘em.

From Shiorin, a 2nd year high-schooler.
"Good morning. I’ve been doing dance since 2nd grade, from genres like hip hop to jazz. Then ever since my 2nd year of middle school, I’ve been acting as the assistant for my choreography teacher and occasionally I’m entrusted with the choreographing, too. I’m not quite a choreographer yet, but the other day when Oh-chan talked on the radio about the anxiety of not getting any inspiration and the complicated mix of emotions of happiness and shock when people learning your choreography quickly, I can really sympathise. When the God of Dance doesn’t come down to you, you’re all stressed and disagreeable. When it finally comes to you, it really progresses quickly and you feel so happy. Not only that, when the other party is taking a while to learn the choreography, I’d be wondering whether my choreography is hard to learn or kinda questionable or something. Oh-chan, have you felt like that before?"

Ahh, I see. But well, um, often for my own solos and stuff… The minor parts will be minutely done, but when I pass it on to the Juniors and all, I kinda like seeing their troubled faces. (laughs) 

"Ehhh?" they’d say. "That’s so fast!"

Um, for those Juniors that tend to learn things fast, I find when they have this "No way!" expression, it’s irresistible. I won!

But well, naturally, they learn fast. Seriously. This time, too, I’m doing the choreography for my solo song and I passed it on to the Juniors. The Juniors dance a little. So right now, it’s pretty easy. It’s muscle memory.

But when I’m choreographing it, I work up a sweat. Like not by halves at all. Yeah, um, for various… like when non-Arashi groups who are used to learning dances look like they’re having a hard time of it, I feel kinda happy.

I mean, you’d be happy, right? For that. If they did it like it was a breeze, it’d be kinda painful, right? Like, they’ve done various countless types of choreography and naturally when they have a pained expression, it’s like…"Ahh, like… is that so?"

So from now onwards, (laughs) I’d like to go with kindly telling people that the dance is hard!

That’s all; this was Ohno Satoshi!
