This is the 34th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~.  This episode is a live broadcast of the show.  I didn’t enjoy it very much because of all the distracting background noise, and they only did one corner.

Regarding the title, “Oro-C” and “Ripo-D” refer to 2 brands of drinks, “Oronamin-C” and “Lipovitan-D”, with both chosen to allude the hosts’ nicknames, “HiroC” and “OnoD”.


They announce the release of their CD titled “Dear Girl Stories”.  Some of the songs include:  Say Your Name, Dear Girl; Kienai Omoi, Dear Letter; Dirty Agent; and Durian Transmix.  The content of the CD reflects all the topics they discussed throughout the previous DGS episodes.

They also played a sample of their song, Say Your Name, Dear Girl.  It’s not bad, but I don’t think it’s great either.  However, I really like the melody, especially the guitars.


fujoshissu by okachimachi hatoThe only corner they did is Sylph Danwashitsu Corner where they announce that they’re going to talk with Okachimachi Hato-sensei, the mangaka of Fujosshisu! (腐女子っス!) using a voice changer.  I can’t understand what Hato-sensei was saying because of the voice changer.

Okachimachi Hato-sensei no Futsuu Sto:
I want to be famous.  How do I do that?

HiroC comments that OnoD’s popularity has already peaked.  They also talk about that becoming famous is usually a combination of talent & luck.  HiroC then tells Hato-sensei that if his name is regularly mentioned in a popular show like DGS, then he’ll gradually become famous.  Afterwards, HiroC orders OnoD to sing a “song of popularity” for Hato-sensei.  As usual OnoD adlibs a horrible, yet hilarious song.


Overall, I imagine that this episode is more fun when you’re actually at the live event.  Just listening to it, however, is not as much fun.  Nevertheless, this is DGS, so I still adore it!

  1. After Hoshino Lily-sensei, this is the second mangaka that has written to DGS that I’ve known of/read their works. Her other pen name for BL titles is Matsumoto Miecohouse, and I know you’re not the biggest fan of BL, but personally I love these works from sensei so much.

    Just thought I might as well say this here: people who are against ‘yaoi’ don’t have any idea what it actually means at all. If you bother to do some research, you’ll see that Boys’ Love is a big genre wherein shounen-ai titles do not include anything explicit, while the so-called ‘yaoi’ indicates there’s graphic sex in them.
    So if you’re against seeing smut of course you’re not gonna like yaoi, that’s fine; however if you dare say that all yaoi titles are rubbish you are the most ignorant prick in the world. Just because there’re sex scenes doesn’t mean the stories are worthless; have you ever watched ‘Blue is the warmest colour’? In fact some yaoi mangas are so well written that I wish there were actual awards dedicated to them because they more than deserve it.
    And even for the faint of heart, you can still find good shounen-ai works from very talented mangakas for whom I feel terrible for being so under-appreciated just because people think that all BL works contain graphic sex and refuse to acknowledge their brilliance.

    1. Hoshino Lily-sensei writes to DGS a lot. And whenever she writes, I’m always excited because it’s always about something entertaining. If my memory serves me right, her letter is what prompted HiroC & OnoD to eat that stinky fruit durian during the Duriangelion episode. Unfortunately, unlike you, I haven’t read any manga from any of the Sylph Comics mangaka featured in DGS. I only read Stray Love Hearts by Shouoto Aya, and I didn’t even finished it, even though it’s so short because I lost interest. But good for you. At least you recognize most of the names of the mangaka featured in this show.

      I agree with you. I encounter quite the stigma against yaoi fans on the web. I don’t identify myself as a “fan” of this genre. I guess I’m more of an occasional reader. And like I said in my BLCD post, it’s only recently that I really became comfortable with it. Perhaps because I’m more mature now, and I don’t shy about sexual stuff anymore. Well, that’s the thing about people who just talk but don’t bother to confirm whether what they’re saying is a fact. (whispers: I must say, though, that I prefer hardcore yaoi than the subtle shounen-ai).

      I think you’ll do great with nyankoto, the blogger of http://joyofyaoi.com/
      She’s one of my favourite bloggers & she’s not shy talking about yaoi. Cheers!
