Female Host : But it seems that KAT-TUN has an issue with Nakamaru.

Koki : Yeah, of course during regular hours there isn't much to complain about, but during the time we're on the stage... well, on this stage, we'd really like him to be more of an aggressive idol. We want him to exude a more star-like aura on stage.

Tamori : What do you mean?

Koki : Hes really a great singer, but...he's way too ordinary. (everyone lols)

Koki : The fact is that when people first see him, they're struck with the fact that he's basically just a university student. Well, they're not wrong, but if he'd just...

Tamori : How is that so? What does he do?

Kame : Um, the switch between his characters is a bit off. Before we usually enter the studio, before the doors open and were all gathered there. Well sort of psyche each other up like, WAH! and he'll be all worked up, but the minute he steps in front of an audience he's like (Kame shows Marus posture)

Kame : He shuts down completely.

Koki : He regresses to the type of ordinary that would make you mad.

Kame : Another problem is how he seems to try to escape when we touch him. Like if I come over and lean on him, he'll get shy in such a way that I have to stop.

Koki : He runs away.

Kame : Then I'm left alone to do some weird dance.

Maru : I honestly wonder myself what one is supposed to do in those situations. Like if one of them's close to me, I always think what do I do.

Kame : You should act happy.

Maru : That's something I can't do.

Tamori : Eh?

Maru : I have no talent in that area.

Tamori : Why cant you do it?

Maru : I can't figure it out.

Tamori : But an idol, you know, as soon as he touches the stage he must behave like an idol.

Maru : Exactly. That concept, I understand, and well, recently, Kames stage presence has been pretty intense. (he's making reference to Kames habit of loving on the other members when he's on stage)

Taguchi : That's member-ai, you know!!

Maru : It's actually amazing to the point that it looks real.

Koki : It's those kind of comments that make it seem like you're an ordinary guy.

Tamori : But you're supposed to do it together, aren't you? I mean, not just watch what the others are doing.

Kame : Like today for example. Nakamaru was the first to come in, but he immediately chose to sit farthest down there. (Kame points to where Ueda and Junno are sitting)

Tamori implies that if it's true that he switches off then it means his motivation for his audience isn't there.

Maru : It is there. It's just on stage and at concerts when it's time to talk, I can do fine, but my motivation is definitely here as well.

Tamori : You say that, but what will you do?

Koki : Like today, he can work harder.

Kame : Exactly. If you're gonna be like, I'm in Johnny's then you have to appeal that fact.

Maru : Like during the dance parts.

Tamori : You get it, when the camera focuses in on you, then you've gotta give something back like, yay! Try to do something like that today.

Everyone is impressed by this idea.

Maru : So you mean, like, have something mysterious prepared?

Then Junno, Kame and Koki talk about how people really want him to do this and they're all watching, banking on it. Maru starts rubbing his leg nervously and Tamori says, doing something like this has to be stopped! (or something like that)

Koki : It makes him look nervous.

Tamori : You have to come out and show them that you are an idol.

Koki : Tamori-san is really instructing him on how to be an idol?! (because Tamori is a comedian)

Tamori : You get what I'm saying?

Maru : Ok, I'll do my best.

Tamori : Put your hand out and yell. YAY!

Maru : yay. (everyone lols)

Then they head off to sing.
