Amuuu T__T;  
I got the new issue of Potato yesterday! The Junior groupings are super random, and Marius and Sou are mixed in with them randomly too, not even with their groups for the Gamushara shows... but overall I'm probably happier than last month? The Balakeya guys have a super cute article together, so that's a plus.

But the biggest news (only to me lol) that I learned from Potato so far: Amu is going to study in America this summer??

Which is really cool and all... if it weren't for the fact that I was really really hoping to see him in concerts this summer T___T;; So I'm pretty bummed about that. The Sexy Zone concert in Saitama is only a few days after the school term ends, so idk if he might still be around for that... (;____;)

But I figured I might as well translate his part of the article ^^; He used a lot of fancy words I had to look up, so hopefully my translation is okay. The theme of the article was English, and Amu was in it along with Suzuki Shunei, Motodaka Katsuki, and Nagata Jiei.

I have a strong desire to master English. To do that, I change the audio to English when I watch movies on TV and listen to a lot of Western music to try to come in contact with as much English as possible in my regular life. Of course, in the international society we're moving towards, I think English conversation is indispensible, and in Johnny's activities, I think being able to speak English will definitely be a strong weapon, too. And in the future, my biggest aim is to become someone who can expand overseas and do activities globally! By the way, my favorite English phrase is "Walk of Fame." It's the name of the street in Hollywood with all the handprints of stars. I think it would be cool to become the kind of star who could have their handprint there~ (laugh) So, this summer vacation, I'm going to do a short-term exchange in America to study English. I'll definitely have grown up when I come back, so look forward to it and wait for me!

Walk of Fame!! :D

I always wonder if some of the younger ones are frustrated at not breaking out of Japan… Jin may have gone about it wrong but his ambitions seem to be in line with the younger guys. At least, they look(ed?) up to him…

But can't wait to see this month's magazines!! :D

Yeah, there are definitely some of the younger ones who talk about wanting to do activities abroad. Johnny's is moving towards having more stuff in other languages recently at least, so even if they're not going abroad English seems useful XD

There's some cute stuff~

Very true!! Somebody has to translate all those j-webs. And at the very least, if they start now, they'll be able to talk to everybody when the Olympics comes in 2020. :D

I'm hoping for more Cherry's stuff! Cherry's!
S: Shori: hm?yomimashou on July 7th, 2014 03:17 pm (UTC)
Haha yup. I still want the job of the jweb translator though XD

I didn't see any Cherry's stuff in Potato, but I'm sure there'll be some in other magazines ^^

Awww ;____; I'm sorry you won't get to see Amu this summer, it's sad that he's missing Gamushara stuff. But…it's nice that he's following his dreams? And hopefully he'll be back for everything in the fall!
S: Amu/Reia: >3>yomimashou on July 7th, 2014 01:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I hope he has a good experience! And I hope I get to see him in something in the fall ;~;

Well, there's always Dream Boys >__>;;
S: Amu/Reia: >3>yomimashou on July 7th, 2014 03:08 pm (UTC)
True >__>;; Well, I'm sure I'll have a chance eventually, one way or another ^^ For now...there's always the J's Party videos |D;;

Woah that's amazing! hopefully it doesn't affect his future work in Johnny's and stuff though! I always thought Amu looked kind of "half" so it'll be cool if he can speak English fluently :)
S: Amu: lolyomimashou on July 7th, 2014 03:14 pm (UTC)
Hahaha I agree, Amu does look kind of half! I think he's visited America a bunch of times with his family already, too. I hope he has a good experience and learns a lot! But yeah, I hope being away for the summer doesn't affect him in Johnny's too much ;;
