The nine of them who have a good relationship with each other, talk about the true faces of each of the members.
Yamada: From the year-end variety programs and those from the beginning of the year, it seems that there are quite a number of people who have an interest in us.
Arioka: It would be great if there are such female WITH readers around too.
Chinen: Dear ladies, its nice to meet you!
Inoo: Firstly, isn’t it better to use this chance to let them know what kind of members we have?
Yuto: Ok, how about starting with the introduction of the kindest member?
Hikaru: That’s good. Let’s say it.
Yuto: That would probably be Yama-chan!
Inoo: Yeah, he notices the smallest details.
Yuto: He notices immediately when we cut our hair.
Yabu: When we say “that’s so nice of you”, he replies with “is it?”, and that part of him is also kind!
Yamada: Wahhh, what is this. It has suddenly become so awkward. (Everyone laughs)
Hikaru: You can’t agree with us and say yeah that’s right (laugh).
Inoo: Hahaha. Takaki is probably the number 1 gentleman. He is kind and will pay attention to your needs.
Yuto: He can understand people’s feelings too. When you say you have a stomachache…..
Arioka: He will help you to rub your stomach? (laugh)
Inoo: The other day we went for a meal. I was sensitive to the cold and he put on a jacket for me!
Yamada: That’s so cute to see.
Yuto: Yeah, there is a gap between his looks and his actions.
Yamada: Though he acts cool but he is cute
Yuto: Even though he is cool ne. Are there any cool members in JUMP?
Yamada: There isn’t there isn’t. (laugh)
Yabu: But there is Keito who wants to be cool. (everyone laughs)
Inoo: He definitely seems like he wants to act cool, Keito. (laugh)
Chinen: But everytime he tries, Hikaru-kun will make fun of him straight away.
Arioka: The way he greets people is also like “Oooiss!” (everyone laughs)
Okamoto: Uwaah. This is embarrassing.
Hikaru: Are you a Shibuya-style guy
Takaki: There were many times when I wanted to kick him because of the way he replies me (laugh)
Inoo: There are times when he does become Shibuya-style Keito!
Yabu: Although he is acting cool but he still gets impersonated by others.
Arioka: That is one of Keito’s good points.
Okamoto: I cant be cool anymore…….
Hikaru: But you want to be cool?
Okamoto: (nods in silence)
Everyone: You do want to be cool!! (roars with laughter)
Chinen: From another angle, who is the person who doesn’t let girls have a peace of mind when leaving him alone? I think it is Yuto.
Yamada: He has a good appearance and physique, and there are many manly features he has but inside of him there is a childish side.
Inoo: Yes yes yes
Yamada: But because he seems like a true adult from the outside, this gap of his allows girls’ hearts to skip a beat.
Takaki: Ohhh, aren’t you a popular guy!
Hikaru: But when the two of us went on a location shoot, when the crows went “kaaaaa”, Yuto “kaaaaa”-ed back at them (laugh). Even till this day he talks to crows.
Inoo & Yabu: You don’t feel comfortable leaving him alone ne ♡
Takaki: Yamada also seems popular. He seems devoted.
Arioka: (pointing at Inoo) If you want to raise your hand just raise it (laugh)
Inoo: Eh, I have been trying hard to hold back but I still got found out (laugh)
Yamada: If Inoo-chan releases his potential seriously, he would be really popular. This is something we have spoken of before.
All: Yeah, it feels so
Arioka: He doesn’t really care about fashion usually, but once he tries to dress up fashionably it seems that there will be a huge change.
Takaki: Yeah, there is potential.
Yabu: But everyone… this guy has a branded muffler. (laugh)
Chinen: The way we can’t even tell that it is of a good brand is so Ino-chan. (everyone laughs)
Hikaru: I think the fashionable one is Yuto
Everyone: Yuti da ne.
Yamada: Its like.. doesn’t he use difficult fashion words?
Arioka: Yea! Fashionable terms. The words that come out from him (T/N. hikidashi) are really good! No wonder he is a model in a fashion magazine.
Yabu: So it is that kind of hikidashi (T/N: hikidashi can also mean drawer/closet). I thought he had a lot of clothes (laugh). He refers to pants as bottoms, and also says words like outers.
Arioka: Ah, he is also wearing a cool down jacket today, but the tag is…..
Yuto: Stop it! Stop it!
Arioka: There is something silver in colour stuck to the tag
Hikaru: See, that’s fashion
Yuto: It is not! I forgot to remove the aluminum sticker when I collected it back from cleaning and just wore it here. (everyone laughs)
Chinen: Fashion is really tiring (laugh)
Hikaru: Chinen is manly when you look at him, but is there anything you are scared of?
Inoo: Your mother?
Inoo: The reason why you hate vehicles is because they are not moving based on your own strength right?
Chinen: I am bad at them even if I operate them myself. When I was a kid everyone rode bicycles to friends’ houses but I was the only one who ran over. (everyone laughs) Of course I can ride them though. But I will use my own legs!
Everyone: That’s cool. So manly!
Yuto: Ahh, the number one manly person who is also stoic will be Hikaru-kun
Yabu: I think it is Yuto
Everyone: Team stoic has appeared!
Chinen: Keito once joined in but he gave up
Inoo: Eh? He left the team? (laugh)
Yamada: The band spends a whole lot of time practising and conversations which were talking about them being stoic led to the birth of Team Stoic.
Takaki: Do they even know that we call them that?
Hikaru: I read it from the magazine (laugh). It was like.. Ah, I am in Team Stoic!
Chinen: We made you captain on our own accord.
Yuto: Hikaru-kun is not only great in his bass practice but also with muscle training!
Chinen: Taking care of his body condition
Inoo: But on the other hand he always catches colds. (everyone laughs)
Arioka: Yuto also has many interests and he films his drumming and does research on it.
Yabu: Keito should work hard too!
Everyone: Are you being silent! (laugh)
Yamada: Dai-chan knows everything, from the members details to everything in the world. (laugh)
Yabu: That’s like a spy. Number one person with most information.
Okamoto: He is really well-informed.
Yamada: He knows too much information about the members!
Arioka: I am curious about things like what you all did yesterday, and what you all did during your off days.
Hikaru: Ah, he really does ask a lot on those. It is like a police interrogation.
Yabu: During times when we meet quite often he doesn’t ask “what did you do yesterday?”. Instead he asks “is there anything good that happened recently?” (everyone laughs)
Hikaru: Yabu has a desire for knowledge. Though it is of a different type.
Takaki: I ask Yabu anything on current affairs or other topics which I don’t understand.
Hikaru: When we are on location shoots working with seniors in the entertainment industry, Yabu is always talking. He can handle many different genres of conversations.
Arioka: I am the entertainer type. Yabu is the society type.
Chinen: He is the number one society type.
Yabu: Yeah I always research on stuff when I am free
Takaki: That is why your vocabulary cannot be beaten!
Hikaru: He also knows his geography really well
Chinen: When I ask things like eh? Where was that?, he will tell me about the place in detail.
Hikaru: Really, his map skills are awesome.
Yabu: Even when I am overseas, I have to know the maps in the guidebook very well or I wont be able to settle down!
Everyone: Awesome! That’s a perfectionist.
Chinen: That’s what one would expect from a leader!
Yamada: When we are overseas it would definitely be Keito’s language ability. He is already in charge of that!
Okamoto: I have language ability!
Everyone: Did you say that yourself (laugh)
Yamada: It really helped us a lot during overseas performances.
Takaki: You get stronger if you know English
Arioka: Keito speaks clearer in English (laugh)
Yamada: I wonder if we have managed to convey everything about JUMP properly through this talk.
Takaki: Its fine, I think we managed to.
Arioka: This is JUMP!!
Thinking about how JUMP has become adults. What is the definition of an adult in the members opinions?
Yamada: In the first place, what is meant by a male adult
Takaki: When we think about this, aren’t we being too mischievious? (laugh)
Chinen: What is this, lets do this together.
Arioka: Someone who is sensible and holds his beliefs.
Takaki: Someone who is smart and can carry out what is meant by the phrase of “ladies first” naturally.
Okamoto: Yes yes (nodding)
Arioka: Someone who can do that in a casual manner is cool. If we mention a senpai I think an adult would be someone like Inohara-kun.
Everyone: Ah! That’s right!
Yuto: If we go along with that, isn’t that a high hurdle for JUMP? (laugh)
Inoo: I wonder if there is an adult
Chinen: I think it is me
Yamada: (interrupting) Someone who leads, it is definitely Yabu-kun
Yabu: Oh! (triumphant look)
Arioka: When he represents us to do greetings, he becomes the natural Yabu-kun.
Hikaru: He knows the adult way of greetings.
Yuto: His choice of words are also those of an adult.
Yamada: He knows how to conclude when he has to, and he is also very good at slowing down when he has to. Though he suddenly goes reckless during MCs!
Takaki: And sometimes he slows down too much (laugh)
Yabu: ($#’W&$”%# (shouting something which no one understands)
Everyone: Like that! (everyone laughs)
Yuto: And the only one who can control this is Hikaru-kun! He will shoot him a cold face (laugh)
Yamada: So Hikaru-kun is also an adult. When we are thinking about live performances, he will be the first to put forward his proposal.
Inoo: His face is cool too.
Chinen: The other day when I turned 20, Ryosuke said since BEST always have their own gatherings, lets have a SEVEN gathering too! Since it was during the year-end party period, he made more than ten calls before confirming the location. So Ryosuke is also an adult!
Arioka: Oh! If you talk about this, our Takaki wouldn’t lose!
BEST: Yea he wont lose! (laugh)
Arioka: His restaurant arrangements are great.
Yabu: We depend too much on him when it comes to deciding the restaurant.
Chinen: No no, Ryosuke is better! (laugh) (everyone laughs)
Takaki: Dai-chan also helps to search for restaurants in private.
Arioka: Thank you (laugh)
Yamada: Because we have all turned 20, from now on we will do it yea? SEVEN gathering!
Inoo: Well BEST always does this after work
Yabu: We ask about each others schedules
Arioka: Something like… Do you have anything after this? Ok then lets have a BEST gathering!
Yabu: Though recently it has been an annual event
Arioka: But that one annual gathering was really strong
Inoo: It was too strong (laugh)
Hikaru: Takaki made all the reservations
Chinen: Then if we have a JUMP gathering, who should do it? Ryosuke or Yuya?
Arioka: That’s like a business meeting already. Then we should have a theme.
Inoo: For example, steamboat! Or something
Yuto: But I really want to go! I want to have a JUMP gathering
Okamoto: It seems interesting!
Chinen: An aim to be a fun adult!
Hikaru: Having our own suggestions and comments listened to during concerts and PVs are also evidence of being an adult.
Yabu: Yeah. Instead of saying that we have become adults, it is probably the surrounding people who have started to include us as adults.
Inoo: (To Okamoto) Ne, are you talking?
Okamoto: Im talking
Takaki: Talking in your heart. (everyone laughs)
There was a period where we regarded each other as rivals and didn’t talk to each other.
Takaki: Just by starting to meet each other in private, I feel that we have become adults.
Yamada: Unexpectedly there were times during our teenage years where our relationships were a little tight.
Takaki: There were also times where we were cold towards each other because we thought “it is different between work and private life!”
Hikaru: The person talking now was the coldest and most snappy though. (everyone laughs)
Yabu: Well, they were young and it was really touchy when it came to rival consciousness.
Yamada: We also talked about this during the SEVEN gathering
Yuto: Yeah we did
Yamada: There was a period of time where me and Yuto didn’t talk at all. We were both too conscious and it felt like we were rivals. We talked a lot about this during the SEVEN gathering. It was just these one or two months.
Takaki: What? What kind of conversations did you have?
Hikaru: Eh, you hated each other? (laugh)
Inoo: You got angry with each other? (laugh)
Yabu: In the past, both of them sought advice from me……….
Yamada: Yeah, it was like a topic on “the both of us during that time”.
Yuto: It was like “both of us really hated each other!” But now it has become something which we can discuss together. Both of us have come to accept it.
Yamada: Yea it seems like we have matured.
Okamoto: You have become adults
Chinen: Yuto often goes to Ryosuke’s place now
Arioka: Arent you both the closest now?
Inoo: That’s right, you are often together!
Arioka: You also said “I was with Yuto all along up till just now~”
Yuto: We do go for lunch together (laugh)
Arioka: Arent you close! (everyone laughs) Though Takaki and Ino-chan also had a strained atmosphere, but before we knew it they become good friends
Okamoto: That’s true
Yabu: Now they are sitting next to each other.
Inoo: We don’t really talk that much
Takaki: If we happen to be grouped in the same hotel room I wonder what will we talk about (laugh)
Inoo: But recently when we are together, Takaki has a lot to say to me and it is really fun. (everyone laughs)
Chinen: Wasn’t there a conversation where you all didn’t even know each other’s mail address or phone numbers?
Inoo: Ah! His mail came recently
Everyone: Eh?! Why?
Inoo: Recently we became closer, and we took a photo together
Everyone: What is this! (laugh)
Inoo: This is an interesting topic! Takaki sent me the photo which we took together (laugh).
Takaki: I saw his contact information in the JUMP group mail so I decided to take the initiative.
Everyone: That’s so cute! (laugh)
Hotel arrangements are also in an adult mode
Yuto: The hotel arrangements during concerts have also changed since last year.
Inoo: It has become “I am okay to be grouped with anyone!”
Arioka: It has also become a suitable decision
Yamada: Previously there were groupings which could never be formed.
Inoo: Yeah. Though no one actually said it out, it was like “this and this…. Erm….”
Everyone: There was there was!
Hikaru: That’s like a little wasted.
Chinen: Yea because there are people who are okay with everyone!
Hikaru: But in the end we just want to gather somewhere together!
Yabu: I don’t think I have been with Hikaru in a room
Hikaru: Eh, that’s because it is disgusting if it was just Yabu and me (laugh) (everyone laughs)
Yabu: There were a few times during location shoots though. I always want to do something for him kindly. Like “Ah, sorry I turned off the lights” (everyone laughs)
Hikaru: (bitter smile)
Yamada: Also, being an adult I am now able to eat wasabi!
Everyone: That’s awesome. When?
Inoo: Things you dislike just disappear. That’s a wonder.
Arioka: Yea you somehow manage to eat them now. But you all know what I like and dislike right?
Hikaru: Kelp seaweed, mayonnaise, dried plums, tomato…… Sour stuff.
Arioka: But I managed to conquer almost all of them!
Chinen: I have managed to think that it isn’t too bad having to stay in a room alone.
Inoo: It used to be impossible for Chinen
Yuto: I went to drink sake with my parents and then I drove them home.
Everyone: Ohhhhhh. That’s a great story!
Yabu: How about Keito?
Okamoto: (thinking really hard)
Everyone: (starts whispering to him)
Chinen: For example, being able to do the laundry
Yabu: Going on a drive
Takaki: Paying the electricity bills
Okamoto: (sighing) Ah, I took out the trash
Everyone: Oh~~~~~ Awesome!! (claps)
Hikaru: You couldn’t take the trash before ne. (laugh)
Okamoto: I didn’t know how to sort out the garbage! There is nothing like this in England!
Yamada: Please remove the caps of the bottles
Hikaru: Eh…. When were you in England till?
Okamoto: 12 years old
Chinen: 8 years have already passed! You have already made it till here. (everyone laughs)
Takaki: This is the JUMP who makes a lot of noise while talking about adults. (laugh)
Arioka: But I want it to be a feeling where it doesn’t seem weirdly calm to become an adult.
Yamada: We should still laugh over silly things
Chinen: I want to compete with a SEVEN or BEST gathering!
