Q41 If you were to represent yourself with a number? 

Nao: -1

Q42 If you were to represent each member with numbers?

Nao: Shou-kun is 1,000,000. Because he has a 1 million volt smile. Hiroto-kun is 75. There’s a reason for it but you can’t write it. Tora is 5000. Because he had 5000yen in his wallet previously (lol). Saga-kun is 486000. It’s the price of the bass he’s responsible for. Saga-kun’s model bass’ price ne (lol)

Nao: Having that prince-like image; I don’t have it, not even once. That’s why…… Isn’t it because Shou-kun’s image is strong in that? Because not only his looks, but Shou-kun’s actions as well is prince-like.

Nao: It’s completely fine to look nice. The next thing is, I want the real ability as a band. That was all

Q58 Have you thought of leaving the band in the past? 

Nao: I’ve never (thought of it) but, it seems like there were such rumours. I knew it through a letter from a fan.

Q65 What is the bit that you like about Alice Nine and the troublesome bit of it? 

Nao: The bit that I like is, we respect each other. The adult bit

– It’s different when you say its just because you guys are close right. It’s like you guys keep a distance properly and be considerate of each other right. 

Nao: Yeah. That’s why, we are like partners. The troublesome bit is…… if you were to say summer homework, it’s like (they) do it on the last day of the holidays. This is such band reality. I am the type to want to finish everything before the holidays start so I end up thinking, 'finish it quickly!’ ne
