This is the 17th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~.  They only do 2 corners in this episode.  The first one is the Futsuu Story (Ordinary Story) Corner where they read a letter from a listener.  Here is a rough translation:
(Spaces between lines mean dialogue that I’ve skipped translating. I only translated parts that I personally find interesting)

Ayumi-san (Listener Letter): I have a request. How about making this radio show into a CD?
Ono: Oh?
Ayumi-san (Listener Letter): I listen from Hokkaido so it’s sometimes hard to hear both of your voices. I particularly can’t hear OnoD’s voice very well.
Ono: Well, that’s true. So I should take more-

Kamiya: Say something to Ayumi-san properly (so that she can hear you).
Ono: To Ayumi? What should I say. . .Are you listening, Ayumi? (whispers)
Kamiya: (chuckles) Speak properly. She won’t hear you.
Ono: It’s me. Me, me.
Kamiya: (chuckles)

Just Awake: The Heavy Metal in HUNTERxHUNTER (2011)

Rating:  😀 😀 😀 😀 (4 out of 5 grins)

I LOVE HUNTERxHUNTER!  I love the manga.  I love both of the first and the current anime adaptations.  I just wish that Togashi-sensei would make it a priority to draw and finish the series, but I digress.  This post is about one of my favourite theme songs in the anime, Just Awake by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Totally badass!

楽しんで下さい。

This is the 16th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~.  Both of them sound very excited and happy, especially Kamiya-san who seems to be in a good mood. Good for OnoD.  As they start their Futsuu Story Corner, OnoD announces that he’ll drink cola, then burps while Kamiya-san reads the program.  Here is a rough translation of one of my favourite parts:
(spaces between lines mean dialogue that I’ve skipped translating)

Hiromosu-san (Listener Letter): Kamiyan “a cool alias” and OnoD, good evening.
Kamiya: Ah, Kamiyan, huh? That sounds good.
Hiromosu-san (Listener Letter): It’s totally summer now, isn’t it? The summer is the time to go to pools and beaches, but it has become quite a painful ordeal. So this year, I’m thinking of buying a new swimsuit. Is there are a swimsuit that both of you want to see in a woman? I’ll use your suggestions as a reference. “Kakko warai (LOL)”

The SKIP BEAT of My Heart

Skip Beat! (スキップ・ビート!) is a shoujo manga created by Nakamura Yoshiki-sensei (仲村佳樹).  I started reading this manga way back when I was still a high school student.  I was looking for a good manga to read, and an acquaintance recommended this.  I wasn’t that enthusiastic when I read the synopsis.  I thought that it would be another cliché shoujo manga where everything is superficial and just ridiculously unbelievable.

This is the 15th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~.  This episode is super funny.  My first favourite part is when they read a letter from a listener.  Here is a rough translation:

Listener (Apricot-san): Kamiya-san, Ono-san, good evening. I look forward to listening to you at this time every week.
Ono: Thank you.
Listener (Apricot-san): Ono-san‘s first mini-album just launched, didn’t it? I, too, just bought it. I am enlivened by listening to good music everyday. This may seem early but I want Ono-san‘s next song to come out.
Ono: (chuckles) That certainly is early.
Listener (Apricot-san): How about the two of you collaborate together on a work again?
Ono: Oooh. . .oh. That’s sounds good, isn’t it?
Kamiya: What’s good?
Ono: No, I mean. She was talking about all of these but it’s rather early, isn’t it?
Kamiya: No, no, no. What are you talking about?
Ono: What?
Kamiya: You must think about releasing works one after another.
Ono: Eh? Eeeh? Isn’t that taking it a bit fast?
Kamiya: No, I mean. Ono-kun must be busy all the time.
Ono: You mean that I’ll be at my peak? (context: “Peak” is when a seiyuu is the most popular. After the peak, their career goes downhill quickly)
Both: (laugh hard)
Kamiya: I didn’t mean it like that. What I meant was for Ono-kun to have more successful works and mini-albums and events. I didn’t mean that you’ve reached your peak and afterwards. . .
Ono: That I’ll just fall down.
Kamiya: Naaah!
Ono: What conversation is this! Talking about falling down too much!
Kamiya: (laughs)
Ono: I’ll just work hard and work hard. So that I’ll be able to climb up higher and higher continuously.
Kamiya: That’s right.
