"Which would you pick?"
Kageki, May 2008

Question 1. If you were going to challenge yourself, would you…

  1. …go sky diving?
  2. …go scuba diving?
Question 2. If you could be born again, would you…

A.     …be born as a man

B.     …be born as a woman?

Matobu Sei 

Answer to Question 1: Skydiving

I think sky diving.  I’ve experienced scuba diving before and it was very pleasant, but after all is said and done, I want to try flying since I love the sky.  I would fly straight! (laugh) How Matobu!  (laugh) [Note: This is a pun on her name, 真飛.  “Straight” is written using the character and “fly” is written with the character].

Answer to Question 2: Born again as a woman 

Because right now as an otokoyaku I’m already experiencing life as a man, if I could be born again, it would be as a woman.  If I was born again as a woman, I would want to cute clothes, put on skirts, and walk down the street (laugh).  I think that that kind of thing is cute when I see it in magazines and so on, but because I have nothing to do with it right now, I want to try experiencing living as a woman like that.

Sena Jun 

Answer to Question 1: Skydiving

I want to do sky diving again.  I did skydiving before in Saipan and it was really fun.  There wasn’t a sensation of falling.  It felt just like flying.  I have a fear of high places, but when you’re skydiving the ground is hidden by the clouds and you can’t see it.  So even though it was extremely high, to the contrary, I wasn’t scared.  I had to sign a release form saying that my safety wasn’t guaranteed (laugh). 

Answer to Question 2: Born again as a woman

As a woman.  In that case even though I was born as a woman, if I was an otokoyaku I could be a man too (laugh). 

Mizu Natsuki

Answer to Question 1: Skydiving 

Because water isn’t my strong point (laugh), sky is better.  From a long time ago I’ve always thought I’d like to try sky diving.  The feeling of fear in the instant that you jump from that altitude …I’d like to try fighting it at least once.

Answer to Question 2: Born again as a man 

Because now I’m a woman, I want to try being born as a man next.  I would want to try doing various things, but when all is said and done…I would want to try watching Takarazuka.  Seeing it from a man’s perspective, what would I think?  (laugh)

Aran Kei 

Answer to Question 1: Skydiving

I’ve already gone scuba diving… I’ve already experienced diving numerous times and several years ago I acquired a license.  Therefore if I was going to challenge myself, it would be with skydiving.  It sounds a little scary, but I definitely want to try it. 

Answer to Question 2: Born again as a man

Because I’m a woman now, I think next time being born as a man would be good.  As a man, I’d like to try traveling the world alone.  I’d like to try traveling various places throughout the world freely and as I pleased.  After all is said and done, I think going as one likes as a woman is difficult. 

Yamato Yuuga

Answer to Question 1: Scuba diving 

I’ve thought about skydiving, but it’s scary (laugh).  I often see people do it on TV and so on, but I definitely don’t think I could do it.  Whenever I see fish in a tank, I wonder “What are you thinking about?” “Are you feeling okay?” and I end up staring at them intently.  So I’d like to try spending time with the fish (laugh).

Answer to Question 2: Born again as a woman 

If I was born as a woman, I think it would be interesting to try living in a different way.  For example, something like deskwork…I’d like to try something that’s entirely the opposite of what I’m doing now.

I read the cut text and knew I just *had* to read what was underneath ^_^!! So cute, their answers! I think the cutest was Tani's answer to the first question, as she was the only one who chose scuba diving. This line I <3 muchly: Whenever I see a fish in a tank, i wonder "What are you thinking about?" "Are you feeling okay?" and I end up staring at them intently.

We now need pictures of a curious Tani staring at fish in a fish tank XDD Thanks so much for translating and sharing!

I really love that answer too. I turn into such a dork around fish, and am the proud owner of a goldfish. Who I named Mr. Bunbury. But that's besides the point XD But yes, there should be pictures of Takarasiennes + fish!

I love *all* their answers. I love that Tani bonds with the fish. And I love that my girl has a scuba *license*! And that Asako claims skydiving isn't scary!

I think it's kind of interesting that the ones who say they would want to be a man, say it's because they've already been a woman, and the ones that want to be a woman, say it's because they want to be really *girly* women next time, and already feel like being an otokoyaku is like being a man. *g*

Given that these women are top stars...even Tani and Yuu, the youngest, have been living as otokoyaku for 13 years. That's a long time to not be wearing skirts!

Aran Kei always says that about being a man and traveling the world. No matter how many people tell her she can do it as a women, she always answers that it's more dangerous for a woman.

Tani is so adorable =D I freaking love her scuba diving answer, but I do not approve of her doing deskwork!

Yeah, it's sad, but it's the reality.

I don't rally either, but I think a lot of the time they write down these sorts of answers in Graph just to be silly *shrug*

Lol, before reading the answers, I wondered if Matobu was going to make the connection to her name, and she did. =3

And unsurprisingly, Asako's skydiving answer makes me love her even more. <3

I love the image of Asako skydiving, simply because I picture Asako with her "Oh crap!" face (a la Ernest) as she's falling :D

Tani talking to the fish, this sounds SO much like her! XDD
But please, don't let her become an OL one day... ^^;

How does it come that I am not able to move my eyes away from the answers of a certain woman who choose her name before she realized that she's actually afraid of the thing she names herself after? ;)
