TV Guide No.3000 Special Talk Part 2 of 4 - ARASHI [English translation]
Sakurai-san: Speaking of miracle of ARASHI, now I bit think about the past, I had an episode.
Matsumoto-san: Eh, what is it?
S: Because it was not on air on TV you three might not know it, I and Aiba-kun, in the past, during our location filming we opened the “door towards Makai [place of demons]”!
Ohno-san: What is it, makai (giggle)?
Ninomiya-san: Can you talk about this!?
S: At that time, we went a lot of location filming about spiritual issues, when we went to the inner part of Aokigahara, we saw some strange light.
Aiba-san: Um, we saw it!
M: You could see it with your eyes?
S: We did, we did. It suddenly got big, and then suddenly shrank.
A: Well, it was really great!
S: And, after we saw that big light ball, the spiritualist with us in the programme said, “If we keep on like this the door towards makai will be opened! 30 minutes left!”
S: Well, now we can laugh too though, it was terrible that couldn’t be laughed (giggle). At that time we two dashed to our utmost.
A: Well~ that was terrible~. I remember that.
M: At the end, did the door towards makai open?
S: I don’t know. Because we dashed back to the car, though we made it in time to escape, probably, behind us the door of makai opened (giggle).
N: 30 minutes left isn’t it.
A: It was really dangerous. But since we were back to the car it was OK!
O: If you were in car it’d be OK (giggle).
N: If you didn’t make it in time, would the car be pulled to makai?
S: It’s all right, because the car doors were closely shut (giggle).
N: Makai is severe (giggle).
M: Just with one car door and it’ll be all right (giggle).
S: The so-called country border, things like that (giggle).
M: Then it’s all right if we go near makai by car?
O: Probably, if in car it’ll be all right.
S: Ohno-san, surprisingly you know well about makai (giggle)!
O: Though just vaguely (giggle).
A: But at that time, I thought about going back to the car. The moment I was told “It’s already all right”, I thought what it was all about? (giggle)
N: Makai system.
M: Staff must have wanted to finish it (giggle).
A: Speaking of staff, there was also that incident too.
S: Hahahaha, that incident.
A: That was also about the spiritual location filming, at really terrible place staff slid straightaway! And then…
N: Stop it stop it~. If we don’t stop such talk will never end. Now this corner is not “horror talk” (giggle).
A: Right so (giggle).
S: But it’s reminiscing. It was around 2001. During “USO!?Japan” (TBS).
N: Indeed during “USO!?Japan”, there was a lot of such filming.
O: I recalled that I have done many things.
M: But, it was good that you two came back safely (giggle). If you two went to makai, today there wouldn’t be this miracle of we five being here would it (giggle).
N: What a makai talk!
All: (Burst into laughter)
