[Translation] ARASHI DISCOVERY 14Jan15 with OHNO SATOSHI

2015.01.14 AD - Surpass your limits.

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

"There are no limits. What’s the definition of a limit? Limits are the goals of each player. Once the limits have been surpassed, a new limit is born."[1]

[BGM ‘Zero-G’]

Ohh, that’s a good quote. Definitely. This is a quote by Bosnia-Herzegovina-born former football player who was also head coach of Japan, Ivica Osim-san. This was sent in by listener Azubi-san. The message reads:
"Ohno-kun, have you felt like you surpassed any limits recently? If you have, please tell us about it."

Limits, huh? Speaking of limits, they’re pretty hard to surpass. I’ve had a day where I was worn out from having fun. I went fishing from dawn to dusk. When I went home, I couldn’t even stand. I just collapsed and fell asleep on the sofa. Limits… I didn’t surpass anything, though. (laughs) So that’s happened.

Man, it’s happened in the past, though. Like having 3 performances and only drinking water throughout. And then still being able to do it vividly on the 3rd performance and all. For concerts, now, I often did that for concerts.

But really, last year… Was it last year? We did the concert tour and man, that was fun. Like, it seemed to pass in the blink of an eye.

Ah, that’s right! Speaking of which, it was the first time we had it in Tokyo for 5 days. We did that for the first time. That in itself was interesting. Last year’s concert now, well, I just thought it was really interesting. Measuring our heart rate was interesting, huh?

The concert last year… The heart rate monitor was extremely close to where our hearts were. So the things that could pick up our heart beats were stuck on ever since before the concert until it ended, the whole time. And then on the screens in the concert, they projected the heart rates for the 5 of us.

So when we were dancing intensely, you could see the rates go up. So the fans were enjoying the concert while watching that.

And then it was common for MatsuJun, wasn’t it? He has a high heart rate in the first place, right? Like 180 or so. For Nino and I, generally, our normal rate is about 100 or 90. And then Sho-kun’s is strangely low, at like 80 or something. Even when he gets worked up it’s like 120. Aiba-chan is generally at just a little over 100 or so. Then it goes up all at once to 180 or so. MatsuJun’s is just extremely high.

So we’re all different. It’s by no means scripted, though! Ah, I wouldn’t want you to get the wrong idea. (laughs) Yeah. It’s interesting.

So that’s the sort of concert it was. So for that… in a sense we surpassed our limits, didn’t we?

For MatsuJun’s solo, right, I was watching from the back while on standby. MatsuJun’s heart rate was on the whole time. At its peak it went up to 190, didn’t it? Mm. I was wondering if it’d hit 200.

Watching that was fun. (laughs) Well, Tokyo Dome ended safely. Ah, that’s right, being at Tokyo Dome for 5 days was a first. So in a sense that felt like it was surpassing a limit. (laughs)

Man, for so many people to have come and watched our concerts, truly, thank you so much!

Yeah, I don’t know if we have any this year but I think it’d be great if we did!

That’s all; this was Ohno Satoshi!
