SCANDAL; “Special Night” blogpost by RINA☆
“Those who watched tonight’s 6 sources live broadcast, thank you very much! It was quite hyped up on Twitter as well, so that was awesome! Somehow, the voice actress who’s in-charge of voicing Satoshi, Matsumoto Rika-san and Pikachu came running into the studio. As we filmed it all in a high-tension atmosphere, I think it’s been conveyed☺︎ To continue for 17 years is really amazing!”
“I’m vexed that we lost in the battle ;ー; To have a Lv.100’s Delphox and Blastoise, and Lv.82’s Hydreigon beaten by a Lv.50’s Fulatto (Sorry I’m not sure what’s this in English!) was weird! Because of this, I would never quit Pokemon!”
“Yoake no Ryuuseigun, at last it’ll be lined up in stores from the day after tomorrow! My heart’s pounding”
“※ Extra: After the live broadcast, we met with everyone from Tokyo Performance Doll, whose from the same label mate as us! Everyone is energetic and it’s wonderful…I’m surprised to hear they’ve been listening to us before their debut! I was extremely happy to hear that they like listening to「Aitai」. They heard the album…I’ll work hard~ ;_; The future is bright!”

Did you get to catch SCANDAL's “Pokemon ieru kana?" SP live broadcast? Ending just minutes ago, streamed live via 6 various sites, SCANDAL shared plenty of info and thoughts about Pokemon and the Pokemon XY movie, and even has special guests on the show!
The (first) special guest for the day turns out to be Pikachu! The girls promote the Pokemon XY movie, showing everyone how the movie tickets look like and also play the promotional video for the movie and “Pikachu kore nan no kagi?" programme, featuring AKB48’s Mayuyu aka Watanabe Mayu! Next up, we even have the voice actress for Satoshi (Eng: Ash Ketchum), Matsumoto Rika-san on the programme!
The band shares with Matsumoto Rika-san how Pokemon has affected their lives, from being the first movie they’ve watched when they’re young till the songs and games. Matsumoto Rika-san also shares her experience when she first auditioned for the role of Satoshi (using Japanese wordplay!) and also what her favourite scene was in this new movie- which turns out to be the ending part, where SCANDAL’s song is also featured! Rina then shares with her the closeness they feel to this song. Matsumoto Rika also goes on to share more about Satoshi’s character and how her own life experience weaves together with the character. She also makes an interesting observation that Mami looks somewhat like Diancie, in which Mami says its the first time she’s ever been told. XD
After some promotion, Haruna has “Older Sister” Rika and Mami on one team to engage in some Diancie gameplay. The game ended in some frustration but it’d been entertaining nevertheless. Mami also promotes the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire game on Nintendo 3DS, where it is possible for one to get a mega-Diancie! The “Yoake no Ryuuseigun” PV is also being aired in full on the show.
Next, SCANDAL is being split into two teams, where they will challenge themselves on the Pokemon game! The teams are namely ‘Team Mami and Rina’ and ‘Team Tomomi and Haruna’. The girls also whip Twitter into this, asking everyone which team they’re rooting for, especially since this programme is also being broadcast overseas as well. Rina says for the sake of Pokemon, they’re doing this seriously. While nervous, she is also slightly elated because Mami is on her team and she seems to be strong (lol). We enter straight into the gameplay, in which the girls battle it out (the names of their Pokemon are at each respective side.)
Ultimately, the winners are…Tomomi and Haruna!! Matsumoto Rika-san instantly said, “You guys didn’t even have a strategy, did you?" (laughs). As Tomomi and Haruna won, they were also able to request for Matsumoto Rika-san to say something in Satoshi’s voice (that was the winning prize), with Tomomi and Haruna requesting for, “Arena, Mieteru?! (Can you see us, Arena?!)" Although Rina and Mami were unable to get Matsumoto Rika-san to say what they want, they had originally gave a lot of thought to it but it is just too bad.
Next up, SCANDAL also performs “Pokemon ieru kana?" live on the special broadcast!! (With the additional flashcards in use) The girls gave a fun and lively performance! From behind, Matsumoro Rika-san and Pikachu were also watching. SCANDAL will also do a giveaway to five lucky people who can pick the Pokemon (card) they want and receive it with autographs from the band.
Haruna also ends the show in English with a message for the overseas viewers, “Thank you for watching! We wish to play in your country!*” With that, that was SCANDAL, Matsumoto Rika and Pikachu!

SCANDAL on 10th July’s「Nagaoka Scramble」radio programme! SCANDAL basically kicks the broadcast off by asking the host, Nagaoka-san to do a gag! They then leave a message on the show!
“Listeners on CBC radio and Nagaoka-san, good evening! How are you feeling, Nagaoka-san? Nagaoka-san has always been looking after us and he also came to have fun at our live in Nagoya. It’s been fun! During that time, he left us the impression of him having the right side of the hem of his trousers completely black. That left quite an impression on us. That was during an event too, and we wondered why indeed. With that, it isn’t always like that when we meet though! But we’re really happy to be getting along well always.”
“On 16th July, we’ll be releasing our new single, “Yoake no Ryuuseigun”! Yay! It’s in another week. It’s also come to be the theme song for the Pokemon movie. I hope everyone would watch the Pokemon movie and listen our song play in that. We wish that kids right up to the parents would listen to this. Also, we’ll be appearing on plenty of Summer festivals. Kindly check our home page and Twitter for more details. We really hope to see Nagaoka-san quickly. We get a lot of vigor each time we do, that’s why we’ll like to do lives again soon. Lastly, please listen to this songー “Yoake no Ryuuseigun”!”
