SCANDAL; “Let’s Sing Let’s Dance” blogpost by RINA☆
“It was all over the news this morning but yesterday, we attended MUSIC FAIR’s 50th Anniversary party. Formal. 50th Anniversary is it. Isn’t that amazing. I got to watch all the most impressive scenes that were being projected on the screen.”
“Up till now, we’ve collaborated with all sorts of artists on MUSIC FAIR. Personally, performing songs with a history continues to be stimulating from all angles. From now onwards, this will be a fabulous programme that’ll continue being all the more important on anniversaries. When we grow older, I think it’ll be amazing if we get to collaborate with someone on our songs someday.”
“This is one programme which I hope will continue always. I want to do lives soon. Happy because tomorrow we’ve got rehearsals in the studio. Looking forward to it very much…”
“(※Extra) Tight bun for yesterday.”
→ Translated in full. There were also news clips on the 50th Anniversary party, where many artists and important figures in the music industry had attended. I’ll add more info to this post if it comes up~ *Photos w/ thx @tkkmn_worldさん & @IrespectHiroさん.

SCANDAL; “THE ROLLING STONES” blogpost by RINA☆
“Went with the members to watch (THE ROLLING STONES)! I’m so glad they were this cool! I think it might be the best live I’ve seen at the Tokyo Dome…the time really did fly pass in the blink of an eye! I feel like I hold the feelings of, ‘Let’s live it up tomorrow as well’. For a band, it’s cool~ It’s been fun!!”
“Anyone who also went for this like us?”

SCANDAL; “The Ginga Trip” blogpost by HARUNA☆
“For me, this was the first stage show I’d acted in, however there’s always incessant laughing every day or heated playful conversations , be it during rehearsals or during the actual shows. It was a really enriching time to see off. Other than the members, I got to meet the best company that’s different from friends. I also got to learn from the many senpais who taught me things along the days. Alllll these are treasured. To be able to be in this company, I feel blessed!!”
“Also, above all, it is to have met the teenager Emil • Von • Selle. His pureness and absolute straightforward feelings have cleansed my heart countless of times, such as the scene where in midst of the many imperial soldiers, he’s the character that shook the empire on his own (laughs). I have had the privilege of playing the role of Emil!”
“I got that in this round, I’m again thinking SCANDAL’s HARUNA have matured from this. As we also made lots of new songs, may everyone look forward to it alright!! Please do come and have fun at our lives as well★”
→ Taking some time but I’m translating this bit by bit. Wait for me ＜(。_。)＞
Photos from Haru’s latest blog update~
SCANDAL on Tuesday night’s (4 Mar) RADIO DRAGON’s 「Doors」programme aka “SCANOMICS”! Haruna announces to everyone that her theater show has came to end with no problems. To act as a young man has become a good experience for her, especially getting to share the stage with many artists and actors. She thanks everyone for this great activity that she got to be a part of. (Otsukare, Haruna!) SCANDAL also bring up Tomomi and Mami’s getting-of their driving licenses, which Haruna believes people already know from the murmurings going on on Twitter.
Rina praises them for getting it on the first go, and Mami shares with everyone that a few days after (getting the license), she and Tomomi went riding on a rented car together. Haruna says that’s courageous of them, and Mami remarks they were really checking up/studying cars (stuff like how to loan the car as a newbie, to keep check of the timings etc.), before finally telling themselves they must get to the driving part. Tomomi tells of returning in the rental car with Mami unexpectedly, and her first drive was to the Tokyo Sky Tree. It was kinda long and took an hour’s time.
Last week, SCANDAL also touched on their participation in the DREAMS COME TRUE 25th ANNIVERSARY, where they also aired the original version of the song, “Osaka LOVER”. Haru then reads out some thoughts by a listener, whom is looking forward to the SCANDAL version after listening to the song for the first time ever. SCANOMICS then aired SCANDAL’s version of the “Osaka LOVER" song.
Speaking of DREAMS COME TRUE’s 25th Anniversary, SCANDAL also went through an important day yesterday (3rd Mar). Firstly, it was the day of their indies debut in 2008, where they also first released the CD for “Space Ranger”. Then last year, it was their first time at the Osaka-jo Hall, a dream come true for them (no pun intended |D). Thus, 3rd March is a day where they hold important feelings for. The band has been moving forward more than they imagined (from Haruna’s stage show to the band’s activities to their lives). Rina says some might have wondered, “What is going on?!" with reference to Haruna doing the stage show, but actually the rest of the three have been making songs and such. This went on for like a month, and from MAMI, she’s had input with the lyrics and composing of one song. This finally all moved on to be in time for 3rd March, where they uploaded a studio live footage on their website HP after a long while, hoping for the fans to see it. Haruna is certain there were people who did and did not get to see it, but they’re gonna air it for the first time on the programme as well.
It’s coming to the end, and Mami promotes the Band Yarou Yo!! Vol.5 event, which will take place at the Shibuya-AX. It is probably going to be the final live they’ll do there (the venue is closing down) and SCANDAL will go all out for their performance. A whole load of upcoming promos follow up, and it seems like SCANDAL have a lot going on for them ahead.

SCANDAL; English translated lyrics to “DEPARTURE”
"The sakura season has come right" "At the park in the shopping street" "I welcome the fluttering petals at full bloom again without losing to the cold this year"
"The lights were lit beautifully on the night we walked together" "With small gaps, I walked a step at a time steadily"
"For how long since then on have the months and days passed" "It seems I’m coming to forget" "The sakura I stopped to stand and look up at"
"To say if to meet exists then there’ll be a parting" "That’s why in this season to decide" "With large hands we waved ‘see you’" "To confirm that this isn’t goodbye" "Words aren’t needed" "It’s alright to have your feelings ride on these petals was something you taught me" "That’s why I remember it properly even till now"
"To spend this sakura season" "At the park in the shopping street" "In the night where the roles end" "Why is it that it becomes a little lonely in this quietness"
"Up to now the things that haven’t changed and aren’t known have increased right" "Because it’s no longer sweet" "There are now two shadows on that day"
"You who watched over my tears at the start and my final smile" "Things became scary in the blink of an eye" "It’s all burnt over and over"
"Words clashed" "To shout out with such selfishness caused trouble" "Although there is no reason for I didn’t realise your feelings"
"Because since then in the many months and days I’d changed" "Could it be I’ve seen it wrongly" "The sakura that’d come to bloom beautifully"
"To say if to meet exists then there’ll be a parting" "That’s why in this season to decide" "With large hands we waved ‘see you’" "To confirm that this isn’t goodbye" "Words aren’t needed" "It’s alright to have your feelings ride on these petals was something you taught me" "Because if now, I know it properly" "Even till now…"

Anonymous asked: Hello! first of all, I would like to sincerely thank you for doing all these translations. Me and millions of other international Scandal fans are eternally grateful. (even Scandal's english fb page uses your translations O.O) Doumo Arigatou Gozaimasu!.. question: how do one send the girls an email for their Scanomics? thanks!
Hi there! Answer to your qn: You can send mail over to the programme via Tokyo FM’s DOORS’ site HERE ^^ If you perhaps need any help w/ the sections, feel free to ask.
Thanks also for taking the time to send this really lovely message as well. To be honest, every now and then the thought of ending this blog because I feel I’m not doing a good job at all crosses my mind. Today happened to be one of those days; However, I feel encouraged receiving messages like yours and it pushes me to continue. Wish you weren’t anon so I could better thank you but thank you anon-san! (ㄒoㄒ)
Altho “Millions of SCANDAL fans” omg no I’m not at that level of amazement (/ω＼)
