Yatagarasu, May 1, 2017 in Igloo World: Team Other Skaters
As @surimi pointed out there were some missing translations. I'm adding the translation of what was previously omitted in the transcript of Episode 2. Next time I work on the transcript I'll compare it with the video clip first to make sure my translation covers the entire conversation. Here's the translation to be added to page 1 & 2 of Episode 2.
*after the question about the occupation of his choice once reborn at the beginning of the 1st page*
K: Next question.
Q: What is your favorite sport?
S: Well, Skating comes to mind first.
K: Oh, you love skating.
S: Yes I love it.
K: Of course. Of course you do. But I didn’t think about it. I sort of thought that you would give me something usual such as baseball. What do you love in skating? (laugh).
ETA: Please also note the corrections I made on page 5, Episode 2.
S: Ummm…What inspired me to skate is it is cool and fun, so I continue skating. Ummm…in what way? Well, actually when I see figure skating footage I get fascinated because it is really amazing and cool.
K: Hmm, amazing, cool. Uh oh? Is it only me? Expecting something other than skating? (laugh). Weird.
S: I am sorry (laugh).
K: No, you are totally cool.
*Next question is what he would be doing 10 year later.*
*After they talked about Shohei Otani at the end of page 1*
S: Kenji sensei is more kakkoii.
K: Don’t be silly. Otani, the pitcher Shohei Otani. Do you want to play baseball? Let’s play baseball next time.
S: Thank you, but I’m not good at it.
Q : What era do you want to go with a Time Machine.
S: Ummm..When I was little I used to say “I love dinosaurs” (laugh). I want to go back to that era.
K: Jurassic period?
K: Cretaceous period?
S: Yes, I wish I could see live dinosaurs with my own eyes.
K: I tell you what, me too. Yaay! (high five) (laugh) Oh, yeah. Good. Next time I will buy you a dinosaur souvenir, dinosaur model like the one they sell at freeway rest area. I hope you will be looking forward to it.
S: Thank you very much.
*moves on to the question of what he looks for in a girl on page 2*
ETA: Please note the corrections I made on page 5, Episode 2, too.
This portion is the beginning of the Episode 1 before Sota and Kenji meet and talk.
Kenji speaking on TV camera
Nagano hosted the Winter Olympics 20 years ago. I came to see the games as an audience with the tickets I bought. I might add that I was excited that I was even wearing suits. Well, today’s guest is (showing his portrait of Sota). How do you think of it? I personally think it resembles him.
(staff: What is the main point of the portrait?)
The point I paid attention to is his eyes that seem to look afar. I really feel all the time that his eyes look into the far distance--like they look into tomorrow. The profound look on his eyes is one of his characteristics.
(staff: What is your impression of him?)
My impression of him is—he is very quiet and he only says はい (t/n: はいcan mean “yes” or “I see.”) to me. That’s my image of him. Although I explain things to him in choreography sessions, we don’t usually chat. This time I want to ask him various questions—questions such as what he does in daily life and about college life. I want to ask him a lot of questions other than skating. Then, off I go. (showing off his portrait of Sota)
Sota on camera
The first time I met Kenji sensei was at the training camp, and I thought he was a little scary. But when I was a high school freshman I asked him to choreograph my programs and since then he has been nice to me and I think he is cool. (staff: What’s like to be when you meet him usually?) Well, I only get to greet him when I meet him. Sometimes he pokes fun at me (in a good way) when he passes by me and I enjoy his teasing because it makes me feel relaxed.
