Twitter Translations

This is a general post for translations of tweets that I find interesting for whatever reason.


HIROSUKE: Drawn by Hirosuke Nishiyama. Cat towels and cat handkerchiefs.
Takeshi Ueda (AA=): Cute.
HIROSUKE: Ahaha~! If you use one of these to wipe off sweat during one of your shows big bro* I'm going to laugh.

^*HIROSUKE refers to him as "Nii-san"

Takeshi Ueda (AA=): Thank you for yesterday! Thanks to the BALZAC team, I always feel like Osaka is my home (lol). Thanks! BALZAC!
HIROSUKE: Osaka is your home! And since it is, from now on please call kitsune udon "ketsune udon"!
Takeshi: I have a sneaking suspicion that the only person who calls it "ketsune udon" is HIROSUKE...

Takeshi Ueda (AA=): This is the BALZAC parka that I'm wearing in the "M SPECIES" video. A person that "M SPECIES" was really important to, HIROSUKE, made this parka especially for the music video.
HIROSUKE: I'm honoured that you wore it!


Ikepy: Bad! Bad! Steroids are bad! Definitely.


Akihiro Namba: Iya, Ken-kun* was shining!! !!
Ken Band is the best ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
Today was fun 〜☆彡
Everyone, really, thank you,,
Let's have fun tomorrow too!!!!!

Namba: I instantly understood after seeing Ken-kun's facial expressions why he was appearing on Music Station. Every second was thrilling. It was effortless, but I couldn't take my eyes off him. I was overflowing with feelings after seeing his performance. He instantly communicated his message to the entire country. I wonder if there are any other artists like that around. Ken-kun is a genius.

^*He's talking about Ken Yokoyama in both of these


IRON-CHINO: Even in a group full of kind members like IRON ATTACK!, these three (Yuuma, Sakathan and Kira) are especially good people. The gap between their looks and personality is amazing.


Kuga Shingo: Somehow I can see a pole being behind you in this one. Pole dancer ♫
Shindo Wataru: To be honest, I kind of want to try taking lessons.
Kuga: Yeah, well I think you should do it if you want to.

Fukusuke. (ADAPTER.): I received Wataru-kun's ass calendar.

Wataru: I've gotten a lot of questions about the calendar, but if I have the chance I think I'd like to do it again.

Kuga: August 1st
"Gender Free" at Chelsea Hotel
We did it...*
Because of Wataru, we did it again
It was totally embarrassing
Embarrassing, totally embarrassing
But it can't be helped...

^*Gender Free is a series of events LIPHLICH hold where they crossdress. Kuga is not a fan of dressing like a girl. (Also, his drag name is "Christina" ;) )

Kuga: August 2nd
The second day of "Gender Free" at Chelsea Hotel
This awkward second day is over...Aa, Wataru-kun, happy birthday!*
I love you & xxxx you ❤︎
I guess all's well that ends well

Maruyama: Kuga-san, happy birthday.
Both as a person and as a musician, he’s someone I totally respect.
Today I’m going to load up all my usual gratitude to Kuga-san into the sound of my drumming so it’ll reach him.

Maruyama: Takadanobaba AREA, good job!!
Today was Kuga-san’s birthday, so I pounded the drums with all my strength!
Once again, Kuga-san, happy birthday.
I love you! (=゚ω゚)

Kuga: I think it's unbelievable.
I'm stunned myself.
It's annoying. Sad. Regrettable.
I wanted to continue LIPHLICH with the four of us.
Maru-chan, Maruyama Eiki is withdrawing from the band and disappearing from in front of you.
But LIPHLICH isn't going to stop.
Me and Takayuki Arai and Wataru Shindo will continue as LIPHLICH.

Wataru: Everyone.
Following today LIPHLICH's drummer Maruyama Eiki will withdraw from the band.
How things turned out like this, I can't really explain it either.
I thought it would always be the four of us.
I tried to convince him to stay all the way up to yesterday, but...
It didn't get through.
I hope you'll remember the scene from that day.
I won't let LIPHLICH's fire burn out.

Arai: [Announcement that our drummer Eiki Maruyama is leaving]
It's so frustrating.
Incredibly frustrating.
But, the three of us are still on the path to our dream, and we're going to find a new dream and keep advancing steadily. Because moving forward is all we know how to do.
I hope you'll keep supporting us from now on as well.


Aki: My newly-formed band World's End Super Nova is recruiting members.
Now we're especially interested in finding someone to fill the bass&chorus and guitar&chorus roles.
We don't really care about age or gender.
If you're interested, please reply or direct message me.
I look forward to working with you.

Aki's Profile: I'm Aki, the vocalist and guitarist of World's End Super Nova. We're currently recruiting every part except for male vocals and drums. I live with a rabbit named Hamachi. I like drawing pictures. World's End Super Nova is not ready to go yet. NOA is currently on an indefinite hiatus.

Pocky: Hell is over. Not being in a band for about four months was hell, and on May 5th at the Beginning of Hell (or "Jigoku no Hajimari"?) live, that hell ended. That's good, isn't it? The support guitarist was Kenshi-kun (ex.minor ear). Thank you. First of all, I'm going to change the name.

Pocky: zigoku no hajimari (planning to change the name) has two more lives in May:
the 24th at Shinsaibashi BRONZE and the 28th at Shinsaibashi Hokage.
The band still isn't quite complete yet, but that makes it kind of interesting now.
Please come see us.

Pocky: I said it at the live today as well, but we've decided on the band name.
We're called "ダナブルー". ("DANABURUU")
Please support us.

Aki: World's End Super Nova will start live activities at Shinsaibashi Hokage on September 16th.
A lot of things happened, and it's a little late, but I think being onstage makes me happier than anything else.
There will be a lot of emotions at this live.
Please support us.

Danablu: [Notice] Around midnight today Danablu will be dropping a Christmas present. The time depends on my job. I think it will be around 1:30 am.

Danablu: [Merry Retweet]
Limited to December 24, 25
We've uploaded a video where you can listen to the full version of our new song "Head light"!!
Since it's supposed to be a Christmas present, when Christmas is over it'll disappear!!
Hurry and watch it!!


KenKen: "I knew this day would come someday.
NAKA*, welcome back.
Let's make music together again someday, okay?
I've been a big fan of your playing since I was in elementary school."

^*Former RIZE guitarist Nakao Yoshihiro, who is playing with Jesse in The BONEZ now.)

KenKen: Aa, Missile Girl Scoot are coming back today? I want to see them. I want to see them so bad I could die. And I want to play a show with them soon!

KenKen: The 13th GG is over!
I was able to meet Naoki-chan, who I just can't help loving, and I'm still hyped up.


NOBUYA: NOBUYA's official vow: Until the "Live Is Beautiful" tour is over, I'm banned from eating ramen. (Talking about ramen in front of me might put you in danger). I'm going to lose 5 kg (right now I'm 69 kg). Let's make smiles bloom at each venue. Looking forward to it.

NOBUYA: The heinous red and black mohawked bassist from the Kyoto band 10-FEET, NAOKI-san, is tormenting me. (crying)*

^*He sent him a picture of ramen

Hiroshi: So Nobu-jii* can exorcise the evil from his body, after tomorrow's live at Namba Hatch it'll be go-od-ni-ght for a while!!
I say that, but Kazuomi is also making lots of new songs, so we'll still be making tons of noise each day!!
Anyway, we'll be back once Nobu-jii gets an indestructible body!!!
That is to say, when he gets back, be careful not to make him angry!!
Don't worry, okay? ♪

^*This is a nickname for NOBUYA, it's kind of like "old man NOBUYA". This tweet is about NOBUYA's vocal cord polyp removal surgery.

NOBUYA: In the middle of photography for something. HIRO* & NOBUYA. Father and son. That's what we look like, isn't it?! (crying)**

**Even NOBUYA is constantly talking about how old he is

Atsushi Yanaka (Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra): Yesterday's two-man concert with ROTTENGRAFFTY was a lot of fun. All the best to both bands! The picture is right after NOBUYA's jumping hug (lol)
NOBUYA: Because giving Yanaka-san jumping hugs is a skill only I possess *\(^o^)/*

Atsushi Yanaka (Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra): And here's a normal hug.

NOBUYA: The man-filled first day of the So…Start TOUR 2016 at Kyoto MUSE. It was so fun it was disgusting. Smelly and disgusting. It gave us a smelly bond. But HIROSHI after the live was by far the smelliest (overall champion). I want to do it again. Thanks for giving us such a crazy fight. We’re ready for the women tomorrow too. Thanks.

^This is about their boys-only live

Suck a Stew Dry

Shinoyama Kosei: I like being called "cute".

Fuse Tatsuaki: Note: The person doing the twin vocals in Suck a Stew Dry's "Katakana Talk" isn't me, it's Hajio-san.
Fuse: Because you can hear me sing lead vocals in yorunitokeru.

Fuse: There is a band that I play guitar and sing lead vocals in called "yorunitokeru" (explaining for those that don't know)
I get asked "Where can I buy your music?" sometimes by visitors, so I'm just letting you know.
You can get it from here by mail order:

Shinoyama: Now that I've fractured my leg, I keep thinking about how tough this would have been if I lived alone and didn't have friends in the neighborhood.

Fuse: Which reminds me, I forgot to mention it during my self-introduction in the MC. I'm Suck a Stew Dry's guitarist and MC*, Fuse Tatsuaki. Nice to meet you.
^*Fuse makes fun of Shinoyama a lot for not being good at doing the band's MCs, since it's usually the vocalist's responsibility

Hajio Kikuchi: The season where we can wear light sweaters has come! Yes!

Fuse: From Wikipedia: Hajio Kikuchi (Born Jan. 3, 1987 (27 years old)) - guitar, chorus
I don't know who wrote that, but I laughed so hard.
Fuse: Because Hajio-san recently turned 31. He's five years older than me*...Ah, that was funny.

^*Fuse and Hajio entered university in the same year, so people sometimes assume they're the same age.

Shinoyama: This was written in a review of "Jibun Senki": "They lost what made them good in their indie era". But we're still an indie band

Fuse: In my 27th year I'm trying my best to:
-Write a lead track for Suck a Stew Dry
-Get nationwide distribution for yorunitokeru
Everyone, please lend me your support and please treat me well.

Shinoyama: When a good looking guy says he's not attractive, people just laugh it off, but when I say it it seems to really persuade people and it's like they go "Aa... you're right."

Shinoyama: It's interesting that there already seem to be more comments from overseas than usual. Come on, foreigners!

^*He's talking about on Youtube for their new video for GOEMON

Hajio: Competing with good-looking guys goes nowhere, so it's better to just become friends.

^*This was after their drummer posted some handsome-looking pictures of himself in a yukata XD


Kiwamu: Today I was able to see Daisuke-san for just a little bit! It seems like he's having a hard time, but the whole time he was saying that he's going to try hard to fight this illness because he wants to come back to the stage quickly.

Kakeru (Scarlet Valse): I wanted to post this today. Today, I sang a song with THE SOUND BEE HD!
I wonder if this "for DaISUKE" prayer I wrote on my face for the performance reached him?

Yuu: I'll have faith and wait patiently for you. I'll do everything I can to keep THE SOUND BEE HD ready for you to pick up activities immediately when you're ready.

Dada (VELVET EDEN): Everyone is waiting for you, praying for you, so you're not alone Daisuke-san

the telephones

Nobu: Yesterday at Japan Jam! Cute GEN-chan and a cute 30 year-old prince!* #handsome guys

^*Masato Kanai from BIGMAMA

GEN: Today as well, I'm receiving Nobu-san's affection.
Nobu: So cute!

Nobu: I have an announcement!
Nobuaki Okamoto from the telephones has gotten married!!
The details are written on my blog:
^ Ishige: Congrats! Blessings from the bottom of my heart

Ishige: And with this, I'm the only single member of the telephones left~!
Well, it seems like days where I'll be immersing myself in music will be starting up soon.
I felt this way when Ryohei and Seiji-kun got married too, but the fact that my longtime friend, who also happens to be my bandmate, is getting married really makes me happy.


Wata*: Glielmo Ko-ichi from Saneru** gave me this drawing. (I don't need it, lol)
Ko-ichi: Then give it back---!

^*The owner of Trust Records, their label before they went major
**Short for THREE LIGHTS DOWN KINGS (san = 3, eru = L, so "3L")

Ko-ichi: u-ya, NORI, JUNE, thank you for the wonderful time we spent together.
I'm very grateful. So you can shine even more brilliantly in the future, I'll be cheering you on from the bottom of my heart.*

^*They just played their last live with Ko-ichi when this was posted. The other three members have announced that they will continue the band without him.
