[Question]

A question for Natsume-senpai, known for his multitude of techniques. Please tell me what is an effective ultimate technique to use when you’re up against multiple enemies alone.

[Answer]

If I reveal it here I will no longer be able to use it myself… But okay, I’m gonna tell you. This technique becomes more effective the more enemies there are. It allows you to escape from any battle even if you’re unarmed, a real trump card, so to speak.

It’s called the Ultimate Technique: ‘Shuffle Time’. It’s really simple. You only have to yell ‘Shuffle Time Start!’.

The phrase ‘Shuffle Time’ itself is the finishing move. They will get the impression that a ‘Shuffle Time’ has started, since you so said. Some of them will start looking around. Some will start inspecting the weapons they have at hand. They will ponder what exactly is going on, what exactly is being shuffled… (I’ve even seen some start changing places with people around them.)

And whilst they’re dumbfounded by ‘Shuffle Time’ you can make a run for it, and when it finally dawns on them that nothing is in fact being shuffled, you will already be taking a shower at home as if nothing happened - that’s the trick.

[Question]

Kyousuke-senpai, any personal anecdotes of your heroic ventures to overcome the tribulations of some particular test?

[Answer]

You should ask Masato, I believe he’s had more than his fair share of those. He always tries his best to put something in the answer column even if he doesn’t know the answer. We all could learn something from him. Actually, I happen to have his test sheet from world history with me, so let me give you some examples.

Question: Who are the three people that comprised the triumvirate in 43 BC?

Answer: Octavianus, Antonius, Masatonus.

Explanation: On first glance, it looks almost natural to see Masato as part of the world history. It’s possible to make one’s name look legit by suffixing ‘us’ or ‘nus’ to it. It’s a clever answer that targets the blind spot of world history.

Question: When Attila invaded Rome in 452, who was it that persuaded him to withdraw?

Answer: Me(ore)

Explanation: The correct answer is Leo (reo), but for unknown reason it was reversed and as a result Masato becomes a historical figure once more.

Question: What’s the most primitive hominid discovered in 1924 in the Republic of Botswana (Bechuanaland at the time of discovery)?

Answer: Auto-toratora EX

Explanation: He was close to the answer, Australopithecus, but his memory was vague and after searching for something that resembled the correct answer he came up with a name fit for a mysterious super robot. His creativity is outstanding.

I’ll talk about my own stories another time.

A question for Natsume-senpai, famous for giving birth to a new smiley. What kind of smiley is it?

[Answer]

It has a fleeting resemblance to a seriously pissed off Eiji Bando. It’s really only a fleeting resemblance - I was also told that it resembles a seriously pissed off Ro Ming Soo, who used to play for the Yomiuri Giants, and I can certainly agree with that. Sadly, it’s never gotten the chance to come into common usage.

[Question]

A question for Natsume-senpai, who sent a ball thrown by Egawa-san in his prime flying to the back screen. What did you say when you hit the ball and what was Egawa-san’s reaction?

[Answer]

"I know it’s going to be your own point of view, but why don’t you try guessing what’s going to happen! And it’s not limited to you, before the beginning of the season all commentators give ambigious comments like ‘It’s likely going to be a scramble for a while’, that’s not what I want, what I want is a daring prediction like ‘Hiroshima is going to take a quick start, and won’t allow anyone to catch up with him until the end of the season, his performance will be so overwhelming that the number of people watching the Giants’ matches will take a sink. And Umehara will retire’ Oryaaa!"

And then, *ka-zing*!
I can still remember how his ears kept flapping at my words and my swing, even now.

[Question]

A question for Natsume-senpai, known to be obsessed with attending court hearings. Among all court hearings that you’ve attended so far, which one had the most dramatic development?

[Answer]

If I’m not mistaken, it was a trial of two brothers, where a simple domestic quarrel led to physical injury. “This is all because you never use fabric softener!” - the defendant started arguing with his younger brother, standing on the witness stand. The judge took his gavel and started pounding the desk. Naturally, everyone expected him to say ‘Order in the court!’

But he didn’t. Instead he said the following. ‘That’s enough. Look at your mother, she’s crying. She’s the one who gave birth to you, if it weren’t for her you wouldn’t even be here fighting now. Don’t make her cry anymore. She’s old, you must treasure her. Oh, but why am I preaching here like an old man? Some judge I am! This is so silly.” And then he slowly stood up and left the court.

His words got through to them and they both broke into tears, and ran up to their mother with all their might. Everyone present at the court started crying, too. There wasn’t a single person with dry eyes (for some reason, the court stenographer was crying more than anybody else). The court was adjourned. I mean, there was no point to it anymore. There has never been a trial quite as touching, and never will. One thing I must add, is that I’ve never seen that judge again after that day.

[Question]

I’ve recently come across a strange phenomenom. I wake up every morning to find that my alarm clock has stopped. Is this some sort of omen?

[Answer]

Your alarm clock is bad news. When this happens to an alarm clock, it will eventually start moving counterclockwise and, in the end, explode. So before it blows your head off, you have to wake up right when it goes off. That’ll fix it.

[Question]

When I eat instant yakisoba and pour out the hot water, there’s always a strange ‘dang!’ sound, what causes it?

[Answer]

It’s actually “Dang! Where’s my noodles!”, a complaint from the sink. Incidentally, if you also throw away the noodles, the sound will transform into high-pitched “Zaaam!”. It might surprise you, but it’s actually a sound of sincere gratitude. From the sink. When you get the chance, give it a try.

[Question]

A question for the legendary Natsume-senpai, who fought Ultraman to a draw. What kind of battle was that?

[Answer]

First of all, Ultraman is huge. In order to make up for the difference in height, I had to wear thick soled boots. And I mean THICK soled boots. They could no longer be considered shoes. I mean you couldn’t walk in those things. The physical difference was no longer a problem, so it was all about guts. We started wrestling, exchanging one blow for another. It was a real struggle. The kids had never seen a battle that nasty.

I was at an obvious disadvantage, but his Color Timer finally started blinking (I got shot by his Specium Beam in the process, but it didn’t hurt as bad as I was told). Ultraman couldn’t retreat before defeating his enemy. I think it was past 3 minutes already. He was growing weaker and getting all wrinkly. He must have been under pressure. Finally he receded. I managed to hold my own somehow. Even though he was getting wrinkly, ten more seconds and I’d have been in trouble.

[Question]

A question for Kyousuke-senpai, known as ‘The Prince of the Ice Rink’, who conquered the world of figure skating. You have an original technique called ‘Tropical’; what kind of technique is it?

[Answer]

It’s an original technique that I conceived, one of those techniques where you retain the same pose while skating. When members of the figure skating association witnessed this technique they all exclaimed in unison “Oh… How tropical…”, so that’s where the name comes from.

The distinguishing feature of it, as the name implies, is its tropical-ness. When I take this pose, my whole body starts radiating tropical-ness. It’s so tropical that their reaction is very understandable. Before I first performed this technique my coach argued that it was TOO tropical. But in the end it brought me victory.

However, after the competition was over, various entertainers, red pandas, earless seals and such started mimicking my ‘Tropical’ technique (in my eyes, that wasn’t anything ‘Tropical’ though, it hardly qualified as ‘Fruity’). It became something of a fad, and I had to give up on it before it became too commonplace. I can still remember what my coach told me at that time, “You can no longer squeeze out fresh tropical-ness”.

[Answer]

Oh, Taiwan, that brings back so many memories. ‘Rose Squadron’ was a TV program for kids. There was a man dancing flamenco with a rose in his mouth during the credits. Yes, it was me. My only appearance in the show itself was during the last episode, and my only line was “This rose!”, which I spoke when I suddenly made my appearance right before the end.

Kyousuke-senpai, I heard that you have undergone training to learn to use Qi, what should I do to be able to use it too?

[Answer]

This is something I learnt afterwards, but using Qi is very similar to mixing two songs together if you’re a DJ. You see, matching the rhythm (BPM) and creating a seamless transition between songs (mixing) is very similar to using Qi. That’s why for your training, first start by getting your hands on a turntable and aiming to become a better DJ.

[Answer]

It’s situated on the small island of Pepepun, surrounded by the Popopi sea. However, there are no ships that go directly to the island, so your best bet would be to ask the local fishermen to let you aboard. But make sure you never mention Papupepon temple. They’re terrified of the Papupepon (or more precisely the goddess Papopina worshipped there). Just tell them you’re after the legendary sea monster Papapunna. Or that you’re looking to taste Poporon. If you do so, they won’t suspect a thing and will gladly take you aboard.

"Anywhere Domohorn Wrinkle."

As you know, the Domohorn Wrinkle is manufactured with great care in a factory surrounded by the green wealth of nature. The whole assembly line is made in such a fashion that it can be completely torn down within four hours without leaving a trace. So, this tool allows you to produce this very Domohorn Wrinkle. When you use it, you just need to leave a container and wait for a few hours before it’s completely filled with Domohorn Wrinkle of unsurpassed quality. This almost criminal advantage is exactly what one would expect of Dora*mon’s tools (I still don’t know what it could be used for, though).

A question for Kyousuke-senpai, who ran into Bigfoot on a snowy mountain and befriended him. What kind of person is Bigfoot?

[Answer]

The Bigfoot that I know is a pretty normal guy. His foot size is only around 28.5 cm, not really enough to be called Bigfoot.

And also, his hair wasn’t as thick as I thought. Well, the fur on his chest is pretty thick alright, maybe that’s what allows him to survive in the harsh environment of the snowy mountains. But his back is unexpectedly smooth, so much that, if he fell asleep on his back, he could freeze to death (when I asked him, he said that he usually puts something warm underneath his back before going to sleep). His unkempt, disheveled hair gave him a wild look, but it didn’t look dirty, and if he, say, pretended to be a musician, I suppose it’d be a piece of cake to get him aboard a plane.

When I suggested that he come with me to Japan for sightseeing, he said “Natsume, don’t they say ‘He that will lie will steal’ in your country? I don’t want to get hassled by cops.” He was a stubborn, but an honest fellow.

Please tell me of a perfectly elegant excuse for being late!

[Answer]

When I woke up, I found myself confined in a prison. I could only hear the sound of water dripping… Apparently I was inside a cave; not a ray of light reached in from the outside… I was imprisoned after having learned the “secret”. I had to pass on it to Jessie no matter what. I put my life on the line for the sake of completing my mission and commenced my escape.

One after another the agents in black overcoats attacked me. Together with my fellow prisoner, Lili, I was escaping from the facility of the Organization. It was a merciless battle. Jack the Gunslinger, Alex the Destroyer, Wolf the Black Reaper… It was nothing but one world renowned assassin after another. Every time I pulled the trigger of my Beretta, and the bullets pierced their bodies, it was as if the bullet struck through my own heart… I started feeling how meaningless this carnage was.

We were advancing along the undergound road that was very much like Tartarus itself. But at the end of the path waiting for us was… the A-class agent, “Cerberus.” His flamethrower turned the tunnel into a sea of flames. The battle was drawing toward its conclusion, my bullet went through his heart. But before he breathed his last… he detonated the bomb vest he was wearing. If that “secret” came to light, it would spell destruction for the Organization. The bomb took Lili’s legs. It was impossible for both of us to escape… I didn’t care if I’d burn alive with her. I didn’t care so long as it meant that that meaningless battle would be over.

But she pointed her gun at me, and said: “I’m not going with you. If you want to die together with me, I can shoot you down right here… You will live.”

I ran. I ran through the blazing corridor of fire, with not a single thought on my mind. I could see the light. I rubbed my teary eyes, and dashed off toward it.

And… Now I’m late.

How can Japan win the World Cup in soccer?

[Answer]

Well, it’s already difficult enough to win the group league… It was really sad when we lost against Australia in the first match. As expected of the famous Guus Hiddink. Thanks to that we have to win the next match with Croatia no matter what it takes. As someone said, the Japanese team lacks decisiveness. The most important thing would be to score a goal. After that, Kawaguchi will somehow show a miracle save (like stopping a PK), and not letting the score change from 0. There’s zero chance of winning against Brazil.

A question for Kyousuke-senpai, who used to host a TV workout program. What was the toughest thing about it?

[Answer]

I was delighted when I got the chance and was full of enthusiasm. I thought I could pull it off with a confident look.

But after the first broadcast I received a wave of complaints from the parents like: “Who’s that ruffian!”, “His stiff expression just doesn’t go with his light movements, it’s creepy” or “My child got muscle cramps because of you” and so on. It was then that I realized how vicious my face appeared. But when I tried my best to smile, I received another wave of complaints like: “Who’s that ruffian with that hostile smile?”, “His facial muscles don’t even twitch when he smiles, that’s just creepy!” or “My child got muscle cramps because of you”…

By the way, if I get too excited and the peanuts spring out, it’s game over. My voice will become death grunting again.

These days I’ve often been a victim of bird poo. Isn’t it supposed to be a rare occurrence? Is it good luck or bad luck?

[Answer]

You have raised an important question. In their world, pooping on someone’s head is a good sign. Well, it’s akin to the superstition in Japan that when a tea leaf is floating vertically, it’s a good sign. The Japanese can get really excited because of something so trivial as “Oh, a tea leaf is floating vertically!” but it’s the same for them: “Awesome, I pooped on his head!” So what it means is that even if it’s bad fortune for you, it can be a sign of good luck for them.

But when I treated him to something that had garlic in it, he finished eating it without any problems. Later, when I told him about it, he looked at me as though to say: “Why didn’t you tell me!”, with an obvious hint of irritation in his voice, but he was perfectly fine afterwards.

Rank three… Body Warmth Ramen.

When they serve it, it’s neither hot, nor cold, just about the temperature of the body. And they make you wait forever. I mean, if it’s ready, I want it on my table. I could cool it down there if I want to.

Rank two… Wave Ramen

Imagine a huge water tank, full of ramen; it’s slowly rocking left and right, soup splashing around. And then comes a warning “Attention, incoming waves!”, the tank is shaken around so intensely the soup starts overflowing. That’s when the customers usually go “Damn, this is bad!” and go on to eating it like there’s no tomorrow. I heard that regulars usually lose all their motivation at this point.

The guy who snatched my saddle was a vocalist in a punk band, and when he got up to the mic he used my saddle instead. It was the epitome of punk prowess, an act of pure instinct. Before long, most other punk bands picked up on the fad and started using saddles instead of mics; the world of punk music was never the same. And it was no longer limited to vocalists, guitarists as well as bassist and drummers all had a saddle in front of them. That’s where they directed their “Oi! Oi!” to.
