oh-aoi

Aoi describes to everyone the underwear he is wearing today (Rajigaze Jan 20)

(Dark Side Mail)

Reita: “I love Aoi so much that for a while now I’ve really wanted to know what kind of underwear he wears. I wonder what shape and colour underwear he wears, sometimes I can’t even sleep at night. My dark side just keeps getting deeper. Aoi-san, please tell me so I don’t disappear into the darkness, what kind of underwear are you wearing today??” 

(both laughing)

(both make ojisan sighing noises)

Reita: I guess women care about the colour of men’s underwear, too.

Aoi: Yeah…

Reita: I wonder what colour they like? 

Aoi: Yeah I don’t know! But recently guys wear mostly boxers right?

Reita: Yeah you’re right! 

Aoi: And there’s so many different patterns!

Reita: Oh I just always wear plain black ones…(starts laughing) but you wear pretty flashy underwear don’t you Aoi-san??

Aoi: Yes I do! Very very flashy ones.

Reita: (laughing) You do! Like almost psychedelic.

Aoi: Yes, psychedelic. 

Reita: Are you wearing psychedelic underwear today?

Aoi: Probably.

(Reita bursts our laughing)

Aoi: I don’t really have any plain ones

Reita: Oh you don’t?

Aoi: Yeah, the only time I’ll wear plain underwear is if I shower after a live and I have no underwear to change into, then the stylist gives me some. 

Reita: Ah.

Aoi: Their own underwear I mean.

Reita: WHAT!!! You perv!!!!

(Aoi laughing)

Reita: They give you some that they had ready for you right

Aoi: Yes yes yes yes, and that’s the only time.

Reita: Ah…..also Kai wears like…Disney underwear (laughing)

Aoi: Yeahh….like idk if I have any Disney but

Reita: He has like Mickey and stuff

(both laughing v hard)

Aoi: Some 3D stuff

(wtf is 3D underwear)

Reita: But yeah I normally just wear plain ones. I can’t be bothered so I just buy a bunch of the same one. 

Aoi: Ahh….

Reita: Like I do have different patterns, but I have a bunch of the same kind you know….maybe I’ll try getting different ones! I wanna have more fun with my underwear. 

(both laugh)

Reita: Nice…so what kind of underwear are you wearing today? You don’t have to go into too much detail if u don’t want to

Aoi: Ahh today….I havee… (I really hope he is checking rn) so they’re pink

Reita: HOT AIR BALLOONS

Reita and Aoi talk about ice cream for five minutes (Radio Jack July 14)

Since these ice creams are Japanese I put pictures so u can see what they’re talking about ^^

Reita: Ring-name, “Ninininini-san.”

Aoi: yep 😒

Reita: “Since it’s gotten hot recently, tell us your favourite kind of ice cream! I like Haagen Dazs cookies and cream.”

Aoi: Oh, that stuff is expensive, isn’t it? It’s so good.

Reita: So what’s your favourite Haagen Dazs flavour?

Aoi: I like…I always get green tea – you know what I’m talking about!

Reita: Yeah, that’s the best one! 

Aoi: Even when I go to eat yakiniku…

Reita: Yep.

Aoi: And it’s vanilla or green tea,

Reita: Green tea.

Aoi: Green tea. 

Reita: Green tea. 

Aoi: I know.

Reita: It has to be green tea. 

Aoi: Yeah – wait, why?

Reita: Huh?

Aoi: Is it cause it just seems like a waste to get vanilla? 

Reita: What do you mean?

Aoi: Like, you’re really gonna go [out to eat] and get vanilla?

Reita: Oh, cause you can eat it all the time? Or like it’s too plain?

Aoi: Yeah, it’s too popular…and it’s cheap, you know? Like, the ingredients.

Reita: Ahh, maybe. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Aoi: Yeah, like why would u spend ur time and money on that.

Reita: (laughs) Okay, what about soft serve? Vanilla, 

Aoi: Ye

Reita: Chocolate,

Aoi: Ye

Reita: Or the one that’s vanilla and chocolate mixed?

Aoi: YEAH YEAH YEAH. Mix.

(both laugh but especially Aoi)

Reita: I wonder why…..I don’t trust people who get only chocolate or only vanilla.

Aoi: Ahh but…sometimes I do just get chocolate.

Reita: Really!? I have never gotten that.

Aoi: Sometimes I just wanna be my luxurious self.

Reita: U jus wanna be urself

(Aoi laughs very high pitched)

Reita: Okay, so what ice cream do you like other than Haagen Dazs? 

Aoi: Hmmm….yeah, mostly chocolate stuff.

Reita: Like what?

Aoi: Ahh what’s it called…Pa…

Reita: Parm!

Aoi: Yeah Parm! I love that stuff.

Reita: Yeah it’s good. I like the white chocolate one. 

Aoi: Oh they have that?

Reita: Yeah, it’s all white.

Aoi: I think they probably make different flavours depending on the [time/season].

Reita: Oh really?

Aoi: Yeah

Reita: Do you know that – uh, I think it’s called Vienetta? It’s like, in a cup, and it’s kinda like a parfait, it’s kinda crunchy…

Aoi: I don’t know.

Reita: Omg it’s so good

Aoi: Oh, kinda like mille feuille?

Reita: Yeah!

Aoi: Oh! Ahhh…

Reita: It’s so good, I bought a box of them. But like, the second you buy a whole box of something you don’t eat it, you know? It’s good when you have just one…like, it’s good because you only have a little. But when you get the whole box…idk I end up not eating them.

Aoi: Oh really?

Reita: Yeah.

Aoi: Okay I’m coming over. (laughs)

Reita: I don’t have them anymore (laughs) this was a long time ago…but yeah, there’s a lot of good ice cream–

Aoi: Sorry can I drag this out a bit more?

Reita: Oh sure.

Aoi: I don’t like ice.

Reita: What, like shaved ice? 

Aoi: Yeah.

Reita: So you can’t eat Garigarikun?

Aoi: Nope…

(*it looks like a normal popsicle but the texture is more like shaved ice and it’s so fucken annoying to eat bc the second u put it in ur mouth it gets all slushy and falls apart smh)

Reita: You don’t like shaved ice? 

Aoi: I do not.

Reita: Why not?

Aoi: No, why…why does everyone flock towards shaved ice?

Reita: Bunch of idiots eh 

(both laugh)

Reita: Actually, I ate some a while ago, and it was literally just ice with syrup on it.

Aoi: And it all tastes the same!

Reita: All the different colours of syrup? Yeah, I think so…we’ve been lied to

(both laugh)

Reita: But idk I feel like people don’t eat shaved ice for the taste…I think like, your body wants it (laughs) (*I guess cause it’s hot..??)

Aoi: Ah, I see…weird…

Reita: So what about Shirokuma?

Aoi: Shirokuma….no, I don’t really eat popsicles.

Reita: But it’s condensed milk it’s so good???

Aoi: Ah I guess.

Reita: What about Azuki (red bean) bar?

(Aoi starts laughing)

Reita: I know, they say it’s so hard u could kill someone with it…

Aoi: Yeah that thing could break your teeth.

Reita: And it makes you really thirsty.

Aoi: Hmm..

Reita: Hmm..

Aoi: Yeah ok let’s go to the next one

Reita: Ok

Aoi and Reita discuss how shit Rajigaze is (Rajigaze Jan 13)

Reita: Okay, can we go to Dark Side now? – You like those, don’t you?

Aoi: What, Dark Side stories?

Reita: Yeh

Aoi: Well like

Reita: Not really? (laughs)

Aoi: Well like, that’s just something you guys made up, isn’t it?

Reita: “You guys”? It was Ruki!

Aoi: Oh really?

Reita: Yeah, he’s like, “I wanna hear some dark stuff”

Aoi: Oh okay – yeah he likes that kinda stuff doesn’t he

Reita: He does. (laughs)

Aoi: He likes it

Reita: He’s always saying “That’s dark.” (laughs) Okay, anyway, let’s go. “Ring-name, I make my zoni with white miso……Reita-san, Aoi-san, good evening.”

Aoi: Good evening.

Reita: Please evaluate whether this is my Dark Side. If I have free time, I’m listening to rajigaze. First thing when I wake up in the morning and I’m doing my makeup, I’m listening to rajigaze. In the evening when I’m making dinner, I’m unwinding to rajigaze. When I get out of the bath, I relax listening to rajigaze. Hearing all your voices gives me power and heals me. I kinda feel like a loser listening to the same thing over and over and laughing at all the same parts.”

(Aoi snorts)

Reita: I want to hear your voices every day. In fact, if I can’t listen to rajigaze, I can’t be happy! Reita-san, Aoi-san, is this my Dark Side?” ……….okay this was definitely one of the lighter ones

(both chuckle)

Aoi: I don’t think it’s Dark at all!

Reita: It’s cute!

Aoi: Yeah! It’s cute!

Reita: So they listen when they wake up…they listen after work…they listen after their bath…..that means they’re listening to reruns over and over, right?

Aoi: Yeah they must be.

(Reita chuckles)

Aoi: How do they not get tired of that!?

(both laugh)

Reita: Right!? You would get tired! …btw do u listen to anything when u wake up in the morning?

Aoi: Nope.

(both laugh)

Aoi: It would probably annoy me.

Reita: So you don’t listen to music or anything in the morning?

Aoi: No I don’t.

Reita: Same. What about after ur bath?

Aoi: Nope.

Reita: No eh.

Aoi: I don’t really listen to music.

Reita: Ahh….so when do you listen to music?

Aoi: When I’m working, like answering messages and stuff.

Reita: Ahh, I see, kinda like BGM?

Aoi: Yeah yeah…so when I’m like, ‘I think I’ll get to [answering emails etc] today’…I listen to the radio and stuff.

Reita: InterFM?

Aoi: Of course.

Reita: Only InterFM?

Aoi: Of course, of course.

(Reita laughing)

Aoi: Of course I do.

Reita: So when you’re at home, what are you listening to the radio on?

Aoi: Well…you know, there’s all kinds of things

Reita: Like apps?

Aoi: Yeah apps

Reita: Ah…also like, when you’re listening to the radio, don’t you think everyone’s so good at it?

Aoi: They are! They’re so good!

(Reita laughing)

Aoi: They’re so good…I mean, we’re not like moderators or anything, so it’s not really the same thing

Reita: We’re just one of the other million indies shows (laughs)

Aoi: But not only are they good at it, their voices sound good.

Reita: Right! They’re so clear and easy to listen to…but with us it’s so hard to understand what we’re saying (laughs) (THANK U)

Aoi: Yeah when we start having too much fun we start messing up our words n stuff

Reita: Uh-huh

Aoi: Especially me…I wanna stop doing that.

Reita: (laughing) You wanna stop

Aoi: Yeah, cause everyone on the radio is so cool, like, (in deep voice) “Hai~”

Reita: Ah right

Aoi: Yeh

(both chuckle)

Reita: Me too like, when I listen to other radio shows, I’m like…damn rajigaze is a shit show

(both laugh)

Reita: We’re just such…what’s the word…amateurs, aren’t we.

Aoi: Yup.

Reita: But I mean it’s not our fault! We just don’t know!

Aoi: Yeah…

Reita: But you used to do it by yourself a long time ago right? I did it too. How was it when you did it then?

Aoi: I mean I did it but I was still young back then, right.

Reita: Yeah totally…how old were you? It was quite a while ago wasn’t it? Like more than 5 years ago?

Aoi: Yeah…yeah ur right.

Reita: When you’re young…you’re better at talking.

Aoi: You are.

Reita: It’s so weird.

Aoi: Yeah.

Reita: I wonder why it gets harder to talk when you get older?

Aoi: Well yeah, it’s the talking thing…but also you just can’t be bothered to go in [to record it].

(Reita laughing)

Aoi: Recently, you know? I’m getting old…

Reita: Yeah…and we gotta do this in the morning, you know.

Aoi: Yeah…

Reita: We record this super early, you know, today our manager came to pick me up at 9:45 – in the morning.

(Aoi chucklin)

Reita: I was like ‘oh, I see.’

Aoi: Yeah, I got a phone call like, I’m here.

Reita: Oh really? And you went right out? You’re super fast!

Aoi: Really?

Reita: Yeah!

Aoi: Yeah, well I got dressed quickly and went out.

Reita: Ah……if that was Uruha, he would hang up and get in the shower.

(both laughing)

Aoi: You’re probably right.

Reita: Kai-kun comes out pretty quickly…

Aoi: Mhm…

Reita: And Ruki…it doesn’t matter what time it is, he’s not ready.

Aoi: Yup…..Ruki……

Reita: Those two have like no concept of time.

No one cares about Reita’s birthday (Radio Jack June 9)

(Everyone is giving a little update of what they’ve been doing)

Kai: What about you Aoi? Are you into anything recently?

Aoi: Hmmm….recently….well, I’ve been playing the guitar.

Kai: No I mean, weren’t you talking about something on social media? This thing you liked?

Aoi: Oh, yeah. My old equipment…

Kai: You decided you like it?

Aoi: Yes yes yes yes…

Kai: I see, well…we have festivals and stuff coming up

Aoi: Yeah, so I hope I’ll be able to use it there. 

Kai: Are you practicing at home? (giggles)

Aoi: Well, I am writing songs.

Reita: Leader, you’re so bad at this!

Kai: Okay, anyway, what about you Uruha?

(Uruha blows out candles)

Kai: I was just going in order, Ruki, Aoi, Uruha, and then you.

Uruha: I knew this would happen

Reita: But before I could even say my update you did Uruha and brought out the cake and everything so I was like ‘hm okay so that’s how it is’

Kai: Yeh I thought you might get mad

Reita and Aoi don’t like shopping for clothes (Rajigaze Jan 13)

Reita (reading mail): “Reita-san, Aoi-san, good evening. I’m writing you about one of this month’s themes, Anger. Last week you guys were talking about store employees [who pissed you off]”

Aoi: Ah yes yes (*the one where the cashier kept asking Aoi if he was sure he’d grabbed the right size of underwear as if he didn’t believe him)

Reita: “Last month I also got pissed off by a store employee for the first time in a while. I wanted to buy a new coat, so I was looking at them when one of the staff came and talked to me. Everything was fine until I tried it on, what happened after was the problem. I understand that [the staff] wanted to sell the coat, but they were trying to do so by comparing it to the one I was wearing that day. And maybe it was just the way they were saying it, but it felt like they were making fun of me, and I was really uncomfortable. Have you two ever experienced something like that?” – so I guess it was like, well your coat is like this but our coat is like – more stylish or something? 

Aoi: Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah 

Reita: Like saying her coat wasn’t as good?

Aoi: Yeah exactly. 

(Reita chuckles) 

Reita: I listened to your Anger talk last week you know

Aoi: Oh did you? 

Reita: Yeah, that guy who was like, “is this the right size,” right? (laughs) 

Aoi: Oh yEAH!

(both laugh) 

Reita: He asked u twice right…yeah I listened to that one

Aoi: Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh…but you know I don’t really think many people talk about [the clothes they’re selling] in comparison with the ones you’re wearing…

Reita: Right? I don’t think they usually do that, no one’s ever done it to me…

Aoi: Well I guess everyone’s different

Reita: How do you feel about like – you know when you’re clothes shopping, the staff comes and talks to you a lot. Are you ok w that? 

Aoi: Omg no they talk to me so much omg 

Reita: (laughs) It’s annoying eh? 

Aoi: Yes…..

Reita: So they come up to u and ask “what are u looking for”……wyd

Aoi: NOPE

Reita: (laughing) What do you mean nope 

Aoi: I’m like noooope

Reita: They’re like “are you looking for a jacket?”

Aoi: Ughhhhhhh

Reita: It’s annoying when they ask, right?

Aoi: Well-uhh-yeh– (can’t talk)

(both laugh)

Reita: Like it’s fine if they’re like “feel free to try that on” and ur like “k thanks” and that’s it but…when they start explaining their products…

Aoi: Well I mean I don’t really…

Reita: Oh you don’t go clothes shopping that much anyway? Like once every few months?

Aoi: I probably go like once or twice a year. 

Reita: Ahhhh…

Aoi: So I don’t really know what stores are like.

Reita: Yeah same…and I always go to the same few stores, and it’s the same people working there all the time, so like…I wait on the third floor or something, and they bring the clothes up for me. 

Aoi: Wait what, like the clothes you wanna try on?

Reita: No they just bring a bunch of stuff up and I just try it on, and then they bring more stuff (laughs)

Aoi: Oh u famous huh

Reita: (laughing) No no no it’s just – [the store] goes all the way to the basement, so –

Aoi: So just go down there yourself. 

Reita: Nah I’m just like “bring me something good please.”

Aoi: (whispers) Damn,,,,,,,,,,,,

Reita: (laughs) But yeah I don’t really like going to clothing stores…so what, you buy them online?

Aoi: Yeah I do. 

Reita: Yeah I feel u. But you get the size wrong don’t you (laughs) 

Aoi: Yeh….yeh I do…….

Reita: Ruki used to always give me clothes that were the wrong size (laughs) he always gets the size wrong

Aoi: But even when it’s the same brand, sometimes the sizes are a little bit different depending on the thing, you know? 

Reita: Yeah totally.

Aoi: It’s unbelievable. 

Reita: It happens…like u get a shirt that’s way too small for u

Aoi: Like if it’s too big I can deal with it…but when it’s small

Reita: (laughs) if it’s small u can’t do shit w it

Aoi: Yes…

Aoi and Uruha discussing going panty shopping with ur gf

Uruha (reading mail): ‘This question has nothing to do with the theme. What do you think about guys who go to women’s underwear stores with their girlfriend? I know they can do whatever they want, but I would never. People would give me weird looks, lol. My ex used to go with me when I bought underwear, and it wasn’t fun at all. I wanted to disappear from the store. What do you two think? If your girlfriend asked you to, would you go with her? I would love to hear your answer! PS, it might depend who my boyfriend was. My ex was an old perv (he was quite a bit older than me so) but if it was you or Aoi, I would wanna go together! I guess girls are weird, lol!’ [oh shut the fuck up] So…if your girlfriend asked you to go underwear shopping with her, what would you do?

Aoi: I couldn’t do it…

Uruha: Ahhhhh…so what would you tell her? Just like ‘nope’?

Aoi: Uhhhh….

Uruha: What if she’s like, I’m waiting!

Aoi: She can go by herself!

Uruha: (Hahaha) You’re gonna start a fight!

Aoi: But, but I don’t wanna go!! U know? Wait, is it like, a normal underwear shop?

Uruha: Well..

Aoi: Or is it like, more fancy kinda stuff? 

Uruha: Hmm I don’t know – like yeah if it was a store that sold only underwear I wouldn’t wanna go, but if it was like, they had underwear on one floor, and we were going through there…

Aoi: You would do it!?

Uruha: Well I mean, I would be anxious, but…hmm idk like…if [I think the gf?] couldn’t go in alone, but could go with someone else..

Aoi: You’d be interested?

Uruha: Well like I’m not interested!

(Aoi laughin)

Uruha: I wouldn’t be like, oh wooowww look at this thing!

Aoi: Oh really???

Uruha: I just mean that I could tolerate it. 

Aoi: Oh really? Me too – but like, you do see it a bit, you know? Cause they got mannequins in there. 

Uruha: Yeah yeah yeah

Aoi: I don’t like that.

Uruha: Even seeing it [on a mannequin]!?

Aoi: Yeah! I don’t like walking by it. 

Uruha: Like you don’t even like going to that floor?

Aoi: Nope…you know, maybe you’re actually more of a perv [if you’re avoiding it].

Uruha: Cause you’re overthinking it?

Aoi: Yeah…

Uruha: So what is it that you don’t like about it? You don’t wanna be seen in the underwear section? 

Aoi: Well like, that’s part of it, but like…I feel like the other shoppers don’t like it either, you know? People are like, ‘oh, so that’s the kind of underwear that person wears…’

Uruha: Ohhh like people are peeking [at what you’re looking at]?

Aoi: Yeah, and then if you make eye contact it’s kinda awkward……….
