YNN NMB48 CHANNEL - Nandeyanen Camp ~N3 Stage Watch-along~ ‘Why Kinoshita Momoka dyed her hair blue’

(starts from about 2:32)

Momoka: So I’m going to talk about FNS for a bit… there’s actually a reason why I changed my hair to this colour. People have kept asking me why exactly I dyed my hair blue and I kept on evading the question. But I’ll answer it here. At FNS I… became a popular topic on twitter. People were all ‘woah there’s a pink one!’ ‘who is the pink girl in NMB’. The word pink was thrown about a lot, like pink or NMB pink, or pink hair. And when I saw that I thought ‘I’m not pink though’. Even though I did have pink hair at the time, I was all I’m not pink, that’s not me. So I started getting really annoyed and pissed off because I kept thinking ‘what’s with everyone I’m not pink!’ and then the next day I went off on my own and dyed my hair. And then when I came back to the hotel, a member of upper management rang me and said ‘You. You’re blue now aren’t you’ and I said ‘Yes’. Then he told me to send him a photo, so I sent one, and he got mad because it was quite blue. 

Reinyan: That’s not even quite blue, your hair is really blue.

Momoka: And then they got angry and asked me ‘Are you even aware of what you’re doing?’ and I replied ‘I’m sorry I was just angry’. And he said ‘I really can’t cover for you anymore’

Ayabaa: That line you just said really sounded like an impersonation of that manager

Momoka: So he told me he couldn’t cover for me anymore. So I was told to change my hair back. 

Reinyan: Back to pink? 

Momoka: And then it became a question of should I change it back to pink or to black. But as it turns out I actually can’t dye my hair any other colour now with this blue because my hair is fried. So I just had to keep apologising, I actually got on both knees and did a dogeza* while apologising on the phone. 

Ayabaa: Yeah, I saw that.

Reinyan: Even though they couldn’t even see you because you were on the phone!

Momoka: And since I couldn’t change it back he was all ‘What are we going to do with you?’

Ayabaa: Can you stop imitating him!

Momoka: Yeah. I was yelled at a lot for this. 

Ayabaa: I’m not surprised

Momoka: Every time I make eye contact with a staff member they just avert their eyes and don’t look at me. 

Ayabaa: I don’t blame them though

Reinyan: But you’ve only been yelled at by one staff member?

Momoka: Yeah. every time I do something with my hair I always get requests to call certain staff members

Reinyan: Scary

Momoka: So that’s the story

Riichan: That’s pretty amazing though

Reinyan: You have a lot going on

Ayabaa: Momo-chan has a hard life as well, huh. Let’s go back to watching the stage

Momoka: I’m sorry was this story not really needed?

Ayabaa: I’m sure your fans are happy to hear this story

Reinyan: Yes, this is pretty rare. If you’ve been hiding it all this time.

Ayabaa: I’m sure any fan would be concerned if the idol they liked suddenly dyed their hair blue

Later:

Momoka: All the staff call me ‘blue’ now. Even Shinobu-san calls me that. There’s nothing left for me now. I should just shave it all off and become a skinhead.

Translator Notes:

*dogeza- a posture when the person gets on both knees and bows their face towards the ground so they are almost lying flat. this posture is taken when one is deeply and sincerely apologising for their actions.

is there a softsub for geinin 3 ep1?

Doesn’t look like it. But I will check and try to get it up if there isn’t.

So is AKB ending? Maybe one or two years more before the project becomes unpopular...

I wouldn’t say ending. They’re just coming back down to earth just like any artist would. No one is at the top of their game forever.

Is anyone working on the english translation(not subs) of the new nmb songs? loving the album with it's great team songs especially N and M's Densha and Saimin Jutsu.

A fellow wota I know did Natsu no Saiminjutsu so that’s one down.

But regarding Densha wo Oriru no one has done that yet but I’m sure someone will down the line for studio48! Glad you’re liking the album, the new songs are rather interesting and fun to listen to.

Thoughts on Yukko's announcement today? Did you see it coming?

Anonymous

I knew it was in the cards for her since she was getting up there in age and her dream to become a model (or dancer as her blog post just revealed) was unfulfilled at the current stage. I think seeing members she was close to in Shiichan and Katsuo making strides professionally outside the group as well as Kinchan, Mokyu etc. really cemented her decision to move on from the group. 

I’m not disappointed, as she realized SKE wasn’t cutting it for her and she needed to do something else in order to accomplish her goals. She gave a lot of time to SKE - as a senbatsu member, as a leader in the theater after Katsuo departed and whatnot etc. To keep her longer than she wanted to stay would be a disservice to her, and she deserves all the chances she can get to achieve her dreams. I’m glad she was able to rank once before announcing her graduation though. 

Yukko did good. She gave a lot and she deserves to seek new opportunities for herself out in the world.
