the GazettE [SPACE SHOWER] 11.10.2015
Seems likes what they did was look up yahoo questions about them and reviewed the answer. Then the GazettE members had to confirm if the answers or the situation being questioned, were at all true.
The show was [Space Shower] and was hosted by Daisuke (vocalist/man) and Nao (drummer/woman) who are a part of the band MAXIMUM THE HORMONE.
[It is true that Ruki san can only drink Cassis Orange?]
I don’t know if he specifically drinks Cassis Orange, but since cocktails are fairly easy to drink, I think he often drinks these when it comes to alcohol. Also, in the members, the ones who like alcohol are Uruha-san and Aoi-san. Kai-san can also drink alcohol. The ones who dislike alcohol (isn’t strong to it) are Reita-san and Ruki-san.
Ruki: Back then, I could only drink Cassis Orange or cocktails type of drinks but now I can’t even drink that.
Daisuke and Nao: What?!
Ruki: Yeah. I can’t really do sweet beverages anymore. But if I do drink, it’s something like….wine….or light beer.
Reita: You’ve grown up.
Nao: If you do not drink, then what do you do for celebrations.
Kai: Ruki and Reita usually don’t drink.
Ruki: Yeah, we don’t drink.
Daisuke: Then what about the other three?
Kai: Well, we start off with beer (laughs).
Ruki: Once at a Final at Chihou, Reita said, “Today, I’m going to drink.” We were all asking if he was sure since he is weak to alcohol. He ended up having to be carried away. (laughs)
Reita: Yeah, I drank about one cup of beer.
Nao: You’re kidding, just one cup?
Ruki: Dead drunk.
Nao: One beer and you got carried out?! (ambulance)
Ruki: It became very gloomy after that. (laughs)
[At a November Live, I ended up picking up Aoi-san’s guitar pick but
Is it okay if I don’t return it?
Do I have to return it??
If I have to return it, how would I go about it??]
**Nao read this very childishly/stupid sounding.
Ruki: You really sound stupid (laughs).
Nao: It’s almost like the answer to this question is already in this question.
Aoi: I think it’s quite all right to take home the picks and the drum sticks but when it comes to towels, it belongs to the venue so…….
Daisuke: That is correct!!
Aoi: But I think it’s ok to ‘secretly’ take it home. (laughs)
Daisuke: I once threw the used towel into the crowed and immediately got scolded by out manager. He was like, “Hey!”
Nao: “That towel doesn’t belong to us!”
Daiuske: “That’s the same as throwing away money!”
–everyone loses it –
~How does the GazettE see the fans~
Ruki: There are some that are (dunno the word) type of people.
Daisuke: The fans?
Nao: Even though they’re fans?
Ruki: Yes, yes of course. Some like to completely stay still and watch us instead of moving around with the crowd . *Ruki imitates the fan’s stare*
Daisuke: Wow, that’s strong! (his stare)
Nao: Is it because it might’ve been their first LIVE and they were shocked frozen in place?
Ruki: No no no no, its nothing like that. They stand there with a small smile. (laughs)
Daisuke: Oh! So to them that’s how they enjoy the live?
Ruki: Yes, that’s exactly it.
Aoi: I get the feeling that they’re like producers. (laughs)
Kind of like this. *crosses arms and observes with a straight face*
Nao: It’s kind of like, *crosses arms “So todays live~…”
**(it’s snooty, but in a good way)
[the GazettE’s Reita isn’t gonna throw his bass anymore?]
Reita: Why is this kid not using honorifics? *annoyed (ex. –kun, -san)
Nao: I thought the same too!
Yahoo Answer: I once read in a magazine that during a particular LIVE, Reita threw the bass really high up and couldn’t catch it. He ended up breaking the bass and even injuring himself. Since then he was told by the members to stop throwing the bass. But donchya’ think you’d end up throwing the bass in the heat of the moment? (LOL)
Nao: I like how they became a bit loose towards the end there. (laughs)
**Was very formal in the answer until the very last sentence.
Reita: But it’s true. I did throw the bass and ended up injuring my middle finger. I had to play LIVES after that with a bandage around my fingers and got to thinking, “Ah~, this is kind of lame.” (laughs)
Ruki: He throws it quite high. When he catches it, it’s super cool but when he doesn’t, it’s super lame. (laughs)
~Seems there’s something a member wants another member to stop doing.~
Aoi: We’re all free bodies but during choruses we can’t move and when that happens Ruki is right in front of us. But when he is directly in front of you, you can’t be seen by the audience. (laughs)
Ruki: But, during those times I’m actually being very cautious of where I’m standing. If you watch our recordings you can tell that I’m being really careful and side eyeing to check if I’m covering anybody and if so, moving out of the way.
Daisuke: So to Ruki-kun you’re making sure you’re not in the way.
Daisuke: But to Aoi-kun
Aoi: He’s totally in the way. (laughs)
Ruki: (busts out laughing)
Daisuke: Moving on, the next question is for Uruha-san.
[Please tell me the details of the time Uruha had to take someone to the hospital because of a major injury.]
Nao: To the point! (laughs)
Yahoo Answer: After a LIVE 9 years ago, the tour van that Reita was sleeping in on the way home was involved in an accident causing equipment to fall directly on to his neck, injuring his cervical, and for a while did lives with a neck brace. Once the ambulance arrived and Reita was being transported in the vehicle, as an attempt to calm those around him he stuck his thumb out and said “Good Luck.” But to Ruki it looked as if Reita was saying his last goodbyes.
Nao: This information is SUPER detailed!
Uruha: What had happened was that the roadie who was driving the tour van had ended up falling asleep.
Reita: Yeah yeah.
Nao: Oh no.
Uruha: The roadie veered the van out of the lane and scrapped the van to the side railings on the highway. The contact with the railings shook the van
Daisuke and Nao: (shocked)
Reita: Do you know the [Ampeg SVT-2PRO], it weighs about 30 KG.
Daisuke: The amp head?!
Nao: What, that came falling down?
Reita: Yeah…….and my head……hurt.
Nao: (laughs) Of course.
Kai: During that time, I was actually in the passenger seat and I saw the roadie move out of the lane without a blinker.
Daisuke and Nao: Whoa.
Kai: When I saw that I was like “Hey, wait a minute.” But when I looked over the roadie was already asleep.
Nao: Whoaaaa Scaryscaryscaryscary!
Kai: I tried to catch the steering wheel but couldn’t catch it in time and scrapped the side of the van. We then pulled over. Reita in the back confirmed he wasn’t well and that’s when Uruha had to drive Reita to the hospital.
Nao: Man~, but that was seriously dangerous.
Uruha: I remember when I asked towards the back, “Hey, are you ok?” all I heard was a weak “yeah”.
Reita: And then at the ER hallway I suddenly remembered, the ending of the movie “The terminator.”
(The thumbs up, ‘I’ll be back’ scene)
Nao and Daisuke: Oh yeah this! *thumbs up
Reita: I thought I can only use this now.
Daisuke: That’s amazing that was the first thing you thought of. (laughs)
Reita: I though there’s only one chance you can use that, you know, so I took it.
Ruki: (laughing) Reita had this plan of ripping off his neck brace on stage once he was fully recovered but when it came time to do it (laughs) no one noticed.
Ruki: I think we needed a bit more light. Like a pin light on him.
Ruki: I saw him in the dark throw it on the ground and watched the neck brace lamely roll away. (laughs)
Reita: I was embarrassed so I kicked it away before anyone could notice.
[I heard that the GazettE’s Kai has a terrible relationship with the rest of the members. Does he have a member he gets along with? Also, which member does he get along with the most?]
Nao: This question worries me!
Kai: Could you please hurry and read what the yahoo answer says. (nervous laughter)
Yahoo Answer: Kai’s relationship with the rest of the members is just fine. Actually, they get along pretty well BUT seems the way the other members treat him is a bit crude so it comes off as though they have a bad relationship. Also, back then as a way of fixing Kai’s habit of losing/misplacing things, the members all agreed to giving him the silent treatment/cold shoulder. And after that, it is said that the treatment was so cold that Kai could no longer step inside the make-up room the other members resided in. Ruki soon realized that shunning Kai was a bad idea and put a stop to it.
Nao: How did that go? (laughs)
Kai: (laughs) This is actually the truth. I have this habit of always losing things. There was actually a time where it was exceptionally bad and it was as if every time I took a step, I lost something. And I kind of thought it was funny and became a smartass about it.
Nao: A smartass?!
Kai: Yes, I was very nonchalant about it. I was like “Sorry Sorry” or “My Bad” as if I haven’t reflected properly on my actions. And then I said something to this Reita and he started to give me the cold. Reita was actually the one that told everyone to start shunning me, because it’ll be hilarious. (laughs) When the shunning started, I still didn’t take it seriously and would try to talk to them like “hey guys~” but even then they’d still ignore me. It came to a point where I felt I couldn’t be in the same room as them. (laughs) I was always in the room the staffs occupied and then Reita….or was it Ruki… Yeah, I believe it was Ruki who was the one that told everyone to put a stop to it. (laughs)
Nao: (laughs) It’s almost as if Reita is giving you the cold shoulder right now.
Reita: *stares forward and ignores Kai*
Kai: Hey! (laughs/shakes Reita)
**Camera zooms in on reita’s deadpan face**
“In the process of shunning Kai”
Nao and Daisuke: Hey hey hey, this is no good. (laughs)
Kai: ……… *smacks reita*
Reita: *snaps out of it*
Kai: I said stop it. (laughs)
Reita: Oh yeah, I forgot we’re on TV.
Ruki: Oh, there he is. (laughs)
Nao: Yep, his true self came out. (laugh)
**part was skiped**
Reita: But really, little by little, you should fix this nasty habit of yours.
Ruki: Lately, Kai’s been blaming others when things go missing.
Kai: I do not! (laughs) Let’s change the subject, if you say something like that we’d end up dragging the conversation.
Daisuke: Look he’s at it again! *points at Reita*
**Camera zooms in on reita’s deadpan face**
“In the process of shunning Kai”
Kai: I apologize. (laughs)
~~and what is the best answer to this question~~
Nao: I think they all get along just fine.
Nao: I mean, you’re all basically middle schoolers aren’t you?
Kai: I remember in the past, we once had a make-up room/waiting room that was huge but we all somehow managed to naturally congregate to one corner together. (laughs
Nao: How cute.
Kai: We’ve had many situations like that where we manage to somehow claim a corner together. (laughs)
Nao: Wow, you guys get along really well.
Ruki: Yeah but during that time were you even there?
Kai: I WAS!
Nao: There it is! There it is!
On screen: “So friendly to the point that they bicker like elementary school kids.”
Nao: Now that I think about it, the way they interact is more like elementary school kids instead of middle school now.
<Promotion talk for the new single UGLY 11.18 Release>
Ruki: Well, the pv too, basically focused on a more LIVE atmosphere for the PV, we added fans in it. A pv/song that clearly shows what kind of LIVEs we, the GazettE, do.
Daisuke: So, the main focus was to show the viewers what kind of LIVEs the GazettE has.
Ruki: Yes, we had discussed adding the fans in as close as possible to show what it’s like at our LIVEs.
Daisuke: Do you plan on going overseas again?
Ruki: Nothing is set in stone but of course wanting to go back again is in talks.
Daisuke: When I first see people who wear the GazettE’s T-shirts or clothes, I could clearly see their cleavage. I was like “Wow~, so there are GazettE fans like this.” I was so envious. I was like “Maybe I should join (the GazettE).”
the GazettE: (busts out laughing)
Nao: YOU CAN NOT (join the GazettE).
Nao: TAKE IT BACK (your words)!
Daisuke: Maybe I should have wrote inone of the yahoo questions, “May I join the Gazette?”
–Daisuke and Nao talking about Reita and Ruki after cut was called.—
Daisuke: You’re Ruki and I’m Reita “Everytime I talk, he keeps getting closer!”
Nao: (as Ruki) “It’s cause you keep stepping on my shirt so I can’t move!”
Nao: You could totally get the feeling that they all got along well.
