    YOUTH HIGH SCHOOL 3RD YEAR CLASS C
    =============================

    After two weeks of the show and all Teachers (MCs) presented, I gotta say I'm enjoying it very much. Actually, I find it the funniest out of her three shows (along with Hakuchuumu and Smart Phondue). Rikachan is doing really great as sub-MC, thanks also for being in charge of conducting the show, therefore the "final word" is hers (different from Smart Phondue for example).

    The show itself has good and weak episodes, depending on the geinins and the actitivies. The most funny imo were with BAKARHYTHM and Cunning Takeyama (too bad he was just substituting in one episode). Mapple Chougoukin is very funny too. I also like Wednesday episodes with the Komiya Breaker sumo wrestler. The less interesting are Tuesdays episodes with Kiyama Yuusaku singing songs and of Fridays with Bananaman Himura. Definitely his face jokes are not my cup of tea, and I don't think the activities on that day funny either.

    Moreover, Rikachan's interaction with the students are funny too, especially with the "fat guy" Sato and the "cute girl" Hibino, who Rikachan senses a girls' rivaly with. lol

    9. Rikachan's reflections

    [​IMG]

    rika___n24x Thank you very much for the two days -- NGT's solo concert and Rie-san's graduation concert. Members, staff and fans, thank you so much.

    I'm very happy that NGT48 has become such a great group, to perform in this big venue, since performing at Toki Messe was one of the dreams of the group. But above all, I'm happy for celebrating with Rie-san her final moments in the group. All this was only possible thanks to the cooperation of local people and the love from everyone in Niigata.

    I had decided not to cry at Rie-san's graduation concert, but I couldn't hold my tears because many memories came to my mind, like how she comforted and encouraged me when I was crying during the lessons in my early days in the group, or when I was troubled performing at Universal Studios Japan and she spared her time from doing the make-up to listen to me.

    Despite Rie-san's simplicity in being friendly and always making us feel close, she's in fact a big senior member, and it's due to her kind personality that so many people made an effort to come to Niigata from war away, to congratulate her at the graduation concert. She was really an amazing captain! I would like say that from now on, we would inherit what we learned from her, but I can't be such an amazing person, so I want to go free spirited as usual by the side of the people who succeed her. ←

    I couldn't participate in the rehearsals for this concert and tried to memorize the dance steps while on the move, but once I stood at the lesson room or on the stage, my mind went blank. On the night before the concert, the dance teacher accompanied me until 2:00 am and I finally made it. In addition, seeing that I was having difficulties, the members taught me the right steps "You should come this way next" and helped me to check the choreography. When I asked to the idol manager "what is this?", she bothered to help me even though it wasn't her job to assist me in that matter. I realized once again that I was being supported by so many people and I regretted deeply for what I said. (I'm going to omit what this is about (laugh)) I made an overdrawn description of what was a trivial argument when everyone was willing to move ahead and trying to find their places inside the group. I'm really sorry.

    Although in the middle of a rush, these were two days in which I felt everyone's warmth. I guess I'm a bit different from others and look out of place, but even so, the members kindly accept and support me, my fans are always close by, no matter what happens, and the staff members always take care of me at the end, in spite of all my selfishness. I'm really grateful to them. Everything I say is what I think, so this is for real. (laugh)

    Rie-san has always said not to forget the feelings of gratitude. With her words engraved in my heart, I want to work hard as a member of NGT48's Team G. I'll do my best!!!

    I took a photo with Rikahime-san 18 Loudly crying face.png 18 Sparkling heart.png Today, Rikahime-san told me "Chikana-chan, let's take a photo!" ...
    (இдஇ; ) I was so, so happy that I thought I was going to faint 18 Smiling face with halo.png 18 Smiling face with halo.png 18 Smiling face with halo.png
    Even after finished, I was shouting to myself inside my heart "The Princess!! The Princess!!" lol
    (Rikahime-san posted the photo on her Twitter
    Take a look if you haven't yet!!!)
    I think Rikahime-san as an idol is a very good senior member. She wears very cute outfits and her poses and angles on her photos are all extremely cute!!! I had never thought one day I would be able to take a photo along with such senior member ...
    18 Loudly crying face.png 18 Loudly crying face.png 18 Loudly crying face.png
    Her talk skills are also great, so I want to learn it by watching her.
    To tell the truth,
    after we took the photo, I told to the idol manager "I want to be scolded by Rikahime-san at least once" and she was amazed lolol
    "Don't worry, you'll be scolded if you do something bad", she calmly responded me
    18 Smiling face with halo.png lol
    It's not that, I want her to tell me "Chikana-chan, you shouldn't do that!", even if I'm doing nothing ...
    I guess I'm saying something very masochistic. I'll stop here

    It's spring! I love this season! To me, it could last forever, although I would have to fight against the hay fever
    [1]. (laugh)

    Cherry blossoms bloom during spring and Japan turns all pink ... What? Are you surprised that I have a heart to love nature? Of course I have!! (laugh) Don't you feel like taking a walk all of sudden in spring? I was born and raised in a place where it's cold a half of the year, so when the days become a little warmer, I feel as if I were floating, as if my feet didn't reach the ground and the air were more fluffy too. (laugh)

    What I like the most about spring is the "smell" of this season! That's why when the spring comes I got excited "Yaaaaay!!!" Oh yeah, I went to see the cherry blossoms too! Actually, I wanted to see the flowers of Matsukawa
    [2], in my hometown Toyama, however, such a short blooming period fell down just like the petals due to my tight schedule and I couldn't go back to Toyama ... Thus, I went to see the cherry blossoms of Megurogawa[3] in Tokyo instead!! Of course, I went by myself!! (laugh) I also went to cherry blossoms night viewing nearby TV Asahi's studio. It was really beautiful!!

    As everyone expects, I'm posting the photos on Instagram as well, but since I received lots of complaints from fans "The photos on Instagram are bad lately. They're shoddily taken", I took a lot of beautiful photos with good image using a mirrorless camera that I got from my fans! Since there're limitations in taking photos by myself, I asked my idol manager from my agency Ohta Pro to be my photographer, although this one ended up being my best shot!

    I've already posted them on Instagram and on Twitter, so take a look, please! I'm looking good in the photos!!


    I took this photo with the
    mirrorless camera but do I look good?

    Since NGT48 Draft 3rd generation's activities have already started, I want to write about how I, Nakai-san here, was in the early days of the group!

    Did you know that my official nicknames were "Rikachan" and "Rikatan" at the beginning? I didn't use to be called "Princess Rika"
    [1] like today. But then, people gradually realized that I was selfish and they started to call me "Princess Rika". At the same time, "Rikatan" was abolished because no one called me that (nowadays only Nakamura Ayuka aka Ayutaro calls me so). After that, I unexpectedly began being called "fisher", although I myself didn't think I was so. (laugh) And although feeling a gap between what I was doing and how I was actually, I tried my best to act as a fisher, to be the type of idol I had in mind. It was a hard time. (laugh)

    By the way, I made various efforts in the early days, like talking with a high pitched voice to look cute. (laugh) But soon my mask fell off as I delivered violent broadcasts with flamings after flamings (although I wasn't doing it on purpose), and ended up being called "The Big Devil". (laugh) But once I decided to stop overstrain myself, it became easier for me to handle things (harder for people around, though). Nonetheless, I think this way is the correct answer I was looking for. Personal growth is important, but not forgetting who you are is even more important, if you allow me to say ... (laugh)

    I'm sorry for those who liked me how I was in the early days, but ... I love everyone who has a big heart to accept me how I am now!


    Although I'm like this, please keep
    watching over me from now on too

    ===========================
    KITAHARA RIE"S GRADUATION STAGE
    ===========================

    Rikachan took the day off on Youth High School to attend Kitarie's graduation stage. I wonder if it's alright because it's the second time she's absent (The first was last Friday to participate NGT's solo concert).

    Message from the show's staff, thinking she was practicing for the stage ...

    ... but she was watching the show instead, not practicing. :fear:

    A.43 - THE TELEVISION Interview

    Nakai Rika / Assistant Teacher of '3rd Year Class C'
    "We don't need many cute girls (laugh)"


    April 18, 2018 12:00 (JST)
    THE TELEVISION
    [​IMG]
    Interview with Nakai Rika / NGT48 who serves as the "Assistant Teacher" in 'Seishun Koukou 3-nen C-gumi'

    "Seishun Koukou 3-nen C-gumi"[1] (Weekdays, 17:30-17:55 JST) began airing on TV Tokyo on April 2. This variety show picks up students among candidates from the general public every week, to form an "ideal classroom."

    In the middle of prominent comedy artists like
    OGIYAHAGI[2], BAKARHYTHM[3], Himura Yuuki/Bananaman[4] etc. serving as the Teachers (hosts of each day), Nakai Rika / NGT48 was greatly selected to serve as the Assistant Teacher (co-host).

    "Princess Rika" is also called "The Flaming Queen" of AKB48 Group. When she strikes, the talk heats up. Will we get stories likely to go on flames one after another?

    'I thought "This show is a mess!" (laugh)'

    -- You have made a smoothly progress with two regular shows since last autumn -- 'Smart Phondue' (TV Asahi)
    [5] and 'Hakuchuumu' (Fuji TV)[6] -- and now as the co-host in 'Seishun Koukou 3-nen C-gumi.

    Not at all. (laugh)

    -- Have you asked producer Sakuma Nobuyuki
    [7] or the staff why were you appointed to the show?

    I haven't, but I got surprised when I got the offer! I think a live show suits me well, because I've already been making live broadcasts (SHOWROOM), so 'I'll do it with pleasure!' (laugh) This is indeed a big opportunity.

    -- Also, the Teachers of each day are all great comedy artists, don't you think?

    I didn't know about them participating at first, I learned it just a little before the show's start and then I got nervous: "Is this show supposed to be this great?"

    -- Nonetheless, Cunning Takeyama-san
    [8] substituted the Teachers of the first day, due to Producer Sakuma's error in scheduling the cast. (Note: Monday's Teacher is Maple Chougoukin[9])

    I thought "You're kidding me, right?" (laugh) How could they make a mistake from the first day? (laugh) I heard it was Sakuma-san's mistake in scheduling the cast and I thought "This show is a mess!" (laugh) But in the end we had the presence of such a great person like Takeyama-san, and on the other days there're plenty of people (other Teachers as well) helping me, so I've been able to carry on cheerfully in a grateful environment.

    -- What kind of help did you get from the hosts, as well as from
    Nobunaga-san[10], the Student Teachers?

    They have helped me every single time. Just like Takeyama-san, he helped me a lot although he was supposed to be just a pinch hitter for the first episode. Aida (Shuji)-san of Sashiroh
    [11] also helps me. (laugh) The two of Nobunaga-san asked me today before the show's start: "Please, be more sharp-tongued toward us to make us more appealing." (laugh)

    I wasn't able to tease them much today, but I want to interact with Nobunaga-san more and more, since we're appearing together every day.

    -- And they're from the same agency as yours (Ohta Productions).

    You're right. I don't understand much about comedy, so they teach me when I'm troubled. I think this kind of relationship is important.

    -- However, is "Please, be more sharp-tongued toward us to make us more appealing." something that a comedian would ask to an idol? (laugh)

    They asked me "Please, tease us!" and I was very pressured because that: "How can I tease them?" (laugh) But I hope I can make them more appealing from now on. (laugh)




    [​IMG]

    'I've got a unique personality too, that's why I can get along well with them'


    -- The students are all amateurs, and you haven't had yet the opportunity to get involved with them, have you?

    Indeed. They have applied really wanting to appear on TV, so they readily respond me when I ask anything. It makes me confident of them to work with. But at first, I was "really worried" even though they had passed the audition.


    -- Was there a briefing with the students before the recording of the show?

    I was told (by the staff) the characteristics of each of them beforehand, but I'm not so different from them either. (laugh)

    -- Do you mean, because you're the same age?

    Not only the age but also, our career time is still short and we don't have much experience, so I think we can enjoy it with the same feelings.

    -- You're being modest, but Takeyama-san praised your progress in the first episode. Are you giving some special care because it's a live broadcast?

    The show must be fulfilled within the stipulated time of 30 minutes, so there's a sense of danger inside me saying "Someone must do that." (laugh) Therefore, I keep my antenna in touch with everything happening around.

    In addition, I think a lot about not killing my character, or should I say, how much I can show my character, although I've been shrunk lately for being reprimanded because of the flamings. (laugh)

    However, since there's a sense of security of the hosts, as if they were thinking "If we say this, everyone will respond us properly", I'm doing everything very freely the way I want, but of course, striving to conduct the show.

    -- When I watched the episode in which Sato (Ryo)-kun came to the front of the classroom (aired on April 5), I thought "She's good!", how well you cut the conversation and proceeded the show.

    I thought "What the hell is goin' on?" (laugh) Until then I was concerned only to "conduct the show" as a supporter person, so I was surprised when I was involved into the main plot. But I had to refuse him firmly. (laugh)

    -- Watching not only "Seishun Koukou 3-nen C-gumi" but also "Hakuchuumu", I think you talk well with people with unique personalities. Has anyone given you any hints about how to talk well with them?

    I've got a unique personality too, that's why I can get along well with them. It's not that I understand them at all, but I try to find out why they have become like this. (laugh) There must have been a reason or something must have happened for it. The more I learn stuff in "Hakuchuumu" the more I think I belong to this group of people.

    -- What aspects of yourself do you think have changed?

    Since there're not many idols who speak their minds, they say I'm not like an idol. I have in essence a rebellious spirit towards society (laugh), or should I say, I'm not willing to yield to the adults, so I end up speaking straightforwardly.

    Thus, as there're not so many idols like me, I think this makes me unique in this aspect.




    [​IMG]

    'It will be a problem if a funny and good looking guy comes'

    -- I guess your fans are concerned if a good looking guy comes as a student.

    I hope he comes. (laugh)

    -- (laugh) Would you be excited?

    I would be excited and the motivation would go up as well. But only being a good looking guy isn't enough, because I like funny people. If he's gook looking and funny, then it will be a problem.

    -- Is it alright to publish this? (laugh)

    I only speak what can be published, so go ahead. (laugh)

    -- Also, watching your interaction with the candidates of the first week, I thought you were harsh with Sonezawa (Reina)-san. (laugh)

    Because I dislike cute girls. (laugh)

    -- (laugh)

    How should I say, I'm harsh with those who "make up cuteness". (laugh)

    -- I see. (laugh)

    We don't need many cute girls. (laugh)

    -- I wonder if it's okay to ask this question soon after that one, but is there anyone from NGT48 that you would like them to apply as a candidate for the student spot?

    What? Who could be ... To me, there is this funny girl called Sugahara Riko-chan. She says very crazy things very easily. She looks like a normal cute girl but she's in fact very funny, so I would like her to participate in the show. I think she would stir up the classroom.

    -- I think she would fit the category of "unique personality" talked previously.

    She would talk about everything without bothering the cameras. Sugahara Riko-chan is highly recommended.

    -- Who do you think has the most unique personality among the participants and staff of "Seishun Koukou 3-nen C-gumi"?

    It's the crazy Suzuki (Naru)-kun? (who passed as a substitute student in the first week). (laugh) Suzuki-kun is a thing. I keep very quiet when he talks but he's actually very funny.

    By the way, he came to me today before the recording with an air of superiority: "Nakai-san, you're more sharp-tongued, aren't you? You can show more (of your character)." (laugh) That pissed me off but I behaved myself and didn't say anything.

    -- On the fourth day, after the end of the TV broadcast and before the extra talk on Paravi, he was eating the hamburgers that were used for the recording. That surprised me.

    Exactly! I thought "Hey, that's Sato's job!" (laugh) I thought to myself "That's the job for the fat character, you shouldn't do that!" (laugh) "Why are you eating along with him?"

    -- (laugh) Also, I have thought you would use the same clothes every day because you're an Assistant Teacher, but they are different every time, aren't they?

    Yeah, they are. They prepare idol-ish costumes close to my outfits every time. You know, to be different from Sonezawa ... (laugh)

    -- (laugh)

    Since I'm an idol, I must show them my position, or should I say, I have to make it clear that "I'm the Assistant Teacher here." (laugh) I must show the difference with them.

    http://wpb.shueisha.co.jp/2018/04/23/103548/

    This time, I'm going to write about Kitahara Rie-san's graduation concert held on April 14.

    I first met Rie-san at the 2nd phase of (NGT48's) audition. I remember being really impressed: "Whoa! Awesome! It's Kitarie! She's real!" But although she said about me "she's not as handful as it seems", I caused many troubles to her and regret for it now. Rie-san is, as opposite to me, very affable and gives a good impression of a dexterous person loved by everyone.

    Despite this, she must have been troubled about various things and I was a little worried if she was able to enjoy herself in the group, without overwhelming herself as a captain and always prioritizing us. But I found the answer to all my questions when I saw Rie-san smiling in her graduation dress. She's a veteran who always walked by our side, guiding us and telling us clearly what was right and what was wrong. When I imagine such a person will suddenly leave us, I can't help but worry if NGT48 will be alright ...

    The setlist of her graduation concert was "godly" anyway, and it seems that she was involved in the selection of the members for the units and for MC. The concert was truly full of love. And I think the reason why there were so many people who made an effort to come to Niigata and celebrate Rie-san's graduation was due to her kindness, effort and personality that she built throughout the path she walked until here. I'm still just a greenhorn but by the time I graduate, I want to be able to hold a wonderful concert like Rie-san!!


    Rie-san, thank you so much for coming to NGT48!!

    Everyone, challenge Nakai-san!
    You can show an unforced cuteness
    by leaning on the desk and shooting,
    you get a selfie as if you weren't expecting to be shot.
    - Put the drink close to your face
    to make its contour look sharper.
    - Your face look smaller too!
    - In addition, you appeal the softness of you cheek.
    Kill not two, but three birds with one stone!!
