I actually like #1 the best, there's a dreamlike quality to it. That's also one scene I'd kill to see when I get out of bed in the morning... :P

(But nobody tell lolli I said that...)

AiEri and ReinAi, my two favorite Morning Musume couples. :heart: I really like the second picture. The emotion, it's just so there. XD

LIES ALL LIES! Such a cheater! Maybe they have a somewhat open relationship, once a month they can have a day with whoever they want! Gaki goes for Sayu/Jun & Ai goes for Eri/Reina~

This week's Pocket Morning question held some pretty interesting answers. It seems like 1/3 of Morning Musume would like to have Aichan as their master if they were pets.

Eri: "Aichaaan. I bet she'd make me wear some cute outfits."

Aika: "I'd like to be a Siberian husky and have Takahashi-san as my master. She likes dogs and would spoil me.(>▽<)v I mean, I want to be spoiled by her! ☆"

Linlin: "Aichan! I used to be a toy poodle in Haromoni@. And as I know Aichan keeps a toy poodle now, I thought she might be a fine master. (○^▽^○)♪♪"

Aichan's answer was Aika, and pretty much cited the same reason as her. :lol:

Know what I find interesting? They're the very same girls who answered that Aichan would be the member they'd fall in love with if they were men in an old Morning Musume interview, lol.

Lol it only took me an hour of translating one page that I realize that while we have pages 37 and 38, we don't have page 36. >_> I can't translate the first question on page 37 like that! Does anyone have the scan for 36?

Page 38 is mostly done though. XD

EDIT: 39 IS MISSING TOO! Oi. XD

Ok I'm done! That took a while (I kept having to check gamefaqs to know wtf she was talking about, in addition to having to check a dictionary once in a while >_>).

Annnnnd here's the incomplete translation since SOME pages are missing....>_>

==================================================================


Q: What's your play style?
A: I'm the type that likes to level up, and take detours from the main quest. (Me: Level grinder and compulsive explorer! Like me! XD) I explore the map from one end to the other, and I hate it if I'm unable to open every single treasure chest in the game. (Me: Wow, hardcore.) I usually leave my PS2 connected to the power outlet, and just switch it on automatically once I get home (Me: Really hardcore...) Also, sometimes I level up too much and I defeat the boss too easily. Usually I like fighting from an advantage, so I'm like "If I get this strong, everything should be alright."

Q: Isn't it tough leveling up?
A: I like leveling up gradually. That's why in FFX, I always walk around a lot in the Calm Lands to collect monsters (Me: For the battle arena...god, this girl really does everything!).

Q: Which scene in the series left the deepest impression on you?
A: Hm, that's difficult, there are quite a lot... The one I like best is probably from FFX? After fighting this jelly-like boss, there was a scene where they (Yuna and Tidus) were in Macalania Lake. The boss was pretty difficult, I had to try several times before I beat it to see the scene. It really remained in my heart. Also, another unforgettable part was FFX's Seymour. Even though I trusted him, he betrayed us halfway through the game. "What the hell, who's this ruthless person?", is what I thought. When we fought in Gagazet, it was a really tough battle and I was like "Why you...!" while I was beating him up. (Me: How cute, I wanna see her play!)

Q: You really get emotionally involved while playing. So, who are your favorite characters?
A: I have a lot for this too. For FFVI, it's Edgar. The way he shows off his machines is really cool. If it's FFIX it has to be Kuja. He's cute even though he's the enemy. But I really like Vivi too since he's so tiny...

Q: All of those aren't the protagonists...
A: I like the enemies too, probably. Kefka's great too, like his "kekeke" laugh. Ah, of course I do like the allied characters too, but I prefer the more unusual characters. For FFX, if not Yuna, then Lulu or Rikku. My mom was watching me play FFVII, and we both thought Tifa was good.

Q: Do you talk to the other Morning Musume members about games?
A: Lately although everyone is into female-oriented games on the DS, sadly I don't. But previously I was playing Final Fantasy Tactics on GBA at the same time with Yaguchi Mari, so whenever we met up we would ask "Did you play yesterday?" and go on from there. At that time, I was the first to clear the game, you know?

Q: Where do you check for information on games?
A: I usually just go to the stores and pick them personally. It's usually there where I find out "Such games are coming out too?". Also, I sometimes also buy strategy guides. But I try not to rely on them too much, and use my own strength to complete them the first time, before referring to the guide on the second playthrough (Me: second playthrough...how does she find the time...). I then do it all over again while reading the guide.

Q: Incidentally, your parents who introduced you to the FF series, do they still play games?
A: My father just finished FFX lately. He said it was interesting. But he's really slow, don't you think? *laughs* I'm from Fukui, and my dad normally lives in Fukui, but when he comes to Tokyo to visit me, he brings his memory card along to play. Well I understand his feelings though. My liking for games has certainly been inherited from my parents.

Q: What are your thoughts after watching the video for FFXIII?
A: It's practically a movie, isn't it? It looks so real that I felt sucked in. I was really moved when I saw FFX for the first time, but this was even more moving than before.

Q: You've played the trial version and really got into it, eh?
A: The battles, especially "summoning", were really beautiful! I only summoned Shiva and Odin, but I already liked Shiva from before and I was really happy. I really want to see Bahamut, actually I want to see everything!

Q: You've given high marks for the battles. Which item do would you rate the highest in it?
A: Ah, that's what has to be taken into account isn't it? I personally like the command battle system. Doing actions while watching the movie was really cool, so even though I was wondering how the controls worked during it, being able to pick the skills used was fun.

Q: For FFXIII, the level system is different from usual, and the characters level and grow separately in each preset role (character classes). (Me: Didn't they do this for FFV before?)
A: Eh?! Is it similar to the Sphere Grid from FFX? I really enjoyed filling that up... Even though it took a lot of time. I'll work hard!

Q: There are a lot of characters who appear in the movie, can you tell us which character you are paying the most attention to?
A: That girl with the black hair...there was a scene where they fought as enemies, but afterwards she joined as an ally, yes?

Q: Indeed that was a hidden character. To be able to notice that from a short viewing, you have good observation skills!
A: Well she was very pretty so it got my attention. But I was thinking earlier that she probably won't be a key person. So she's really a key character? Yay!

Q: You seem to be more interested in the sub-characters than the protagonist.
A: Ah, but that girl who was going to get married...Sera, was it? The protagonist's sister. She said "Protect...". How will it turn out?

Q: Right now we're drawing the character models one by one, it sort of feels like the development of a drama.
A: Really? I can't wait! It'll be great to have voices for them too. I saw on TV that there were going to be seiyuu (voice actors), and I think it makes it easier to be more involved with the story this way.

Q: How did you feel after going through a test play today?
A: Actually I've already seen the trailer from the official site, I felt betrayed, but in a good way. "We're going this far?! Awesome!!!", that's how I felt. *laughs* The visuals and battles have all improved. When the sphere grid from FFX appeared, even though I felt like it has changed, it was more like it evolved. As expected of the Final Fantasy series.

Q: So what do you think is the charm of the FF series?
A: The story. I am surprised by it every single time, and I end up getting emotionally involved with it. I end up crying with the characters and stuff like that. Also, I like the battles. To fight, and level up. Even though there are other games that are similar, I still prefer FF... The story and protagonists change every time, I always think "this is it, this is the world I want to see". Also, I love the music. It draws you into the game.

Q: That's some high praise. What does FF mean to you then, Takahashi-san?
A: Speaking from the heart, I feel like "I want to be here", and it's a soothing place for me. I love fantasy worlds like Harry Potter too. Putting myself where the characters are and enjoy the ride is the best.

=============================================================


Will add more when the missing pages are finally found. XD
