[Translation] Hey! Say! JUMP Calendar 2012.04 ~ 2013.03 BEST Interview Translations  
I don't have the scans, but have a picture of the pages that I'm translating~

I'm worried about breaking my copy so I won't be scanning these, sorry! ): But I hope scans come out soon, they entire calendar is really quite pretty :)) 

As usual beta'd by the lovely manatsubi:))


Arioka Daiki
1991.4.15 / Chiba prefecture / Blood Type A / Height 164.5cm

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to myself
The one thing that I want to level up within myself is my singing skills.
Even though I enjoy singing, I can't confidently say that I am good at it. 
Hence, my goal is to be able to sing whatever genre of song almightily! 
There are many seniors who are good at singing, but the one that stands out in my mind is Arashi's Ohno-kun.
I talk to Chinen often about it too, that his voice is really lovely.
Ohno-kun's solo “TOP SECRET” is really cool and I love it!
For the melodies that I've written and accumulated since first year of high school, it is another of my goals to have them completed as songs.
Finally, I want to perform them someday at concerts yo!

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to members
To Yamada: Because you are afraid of roller coasters, we can't enjoy them together at amusement parks... Let's ride it someday!
To Chinen: You're stubborn and won't change things once decided. While there are times when that attitude is good, sometimes flexibility is also necessary. 
To Nakajima: Your monomane (T/N: imitations) is top class! You can pick out characteristics well, I hope you would expand your talents in this area.
To Okamoto: You mumble when you talk, so it's hard to hear you when you're speaking. You should raise your voice a little.
To Takaki: You surprisingly have a flexible body. If you work a bit harder on your stretches, you could extend your dancing more. 
To Inoo: This year, JUMP is expanding into Asia. To be useful in the native land, please get your Chinese to a fluent level! 
To Yaotome: Since you're good at juggling, how about trying to add variations with things other than balls? 
To Yabu: Don't hide your airheadedness and show it! Recently, you thought that a window was open and hit your head against the glass. 

Takaki Yuya 
1990.3.26 / Osaka prefecture / Blood Type O / Height 176cm

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to myself
One thing that I want to spend working hard all year long is dieting (laughs)
Last year, during SUMMARY I finally gained some muscle, but after that we went back to our usual lives and I returned to my old state. 
Usually I do run and stuff, but in the process it becomes tough and I'd think “Well I guess I'm fine like this...” and I'd take it for granted.
Apart from that, I like eating so I don't want to slim down if I have to control my eating.
If it comes to this, there is no other choice but to dance a lot and slim down!
Dancing isn't a pain for me so it's the only way to drop my weight in a fun way.
For the sake of the fans, and for the sake of me becoming slim, I want to do many concerts in 2012! 

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to members
To Yamada: Stop saying that I'm a kid and bullying me! You're pretty childish too (laughs)
To Chinen: It's childish when you give up on a game that you can't become the best at, so you should definitely change that!
To Nakajima: When you get told by the members “Will you please stop air drumming?”, you should stop it at once.
To Okamoto: Somehow you end up crying when you are praised. It surprised me at first. You don't have to cry... Become more like a man! 
To Arioka: When Arioka-kun is the MC for Shounen Club, I feel at ease. I hope you'll be active in the emcee industry in the future.
To Inoo: When we are talking about serious things, please stop making up lies that have absolutely no meaning (laughs).
To Yaotome: Please take note of your slip ups. Because during concert MCs, you usually mess up your choice of words.
To Yabu: I think it's best for you to change they way you sometimes overdo things? It's really hilarious to me, though.

Yaotome Hikaru
1990.12.02 / Miyagi prefecture / Blood Type O / Height 173cm

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to myself
Last year when I was given the chance to appear in the drama “Ikemen Desu Ne”, I felt the importance of teamwork. 
Because of the really good team that was made up of not just the cast but also inclusive of the staff members, we were able to film in a really fun atmosphere.
For 2012, I want to strengthen JUMP's unity.
It would be interesting if we had all the members standing on stage to do a play! 
Personally, it is my goal to visit Hawaii in my private time. 
I have been there twice. The weather there is nice, I don't have to worry about food, there are many people who can speak Japanese, and it was a fun place to visit even if it was for work. 
I'll go there as a reward after I finish a big job~ (T/N: Pack your bags, girls!!)

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to members
To Yamada: There are times when you have a "my pace" (T/N: doing things without minding your surroundings) attitude during concert rehearsals. It's also important to take note of things around you.
To Chinen: You are too strong at making weird faces! Because you usually have a cute face, I think it's better for you to seal the weird faces away--.
To Nakajima: Your air drumming, do it moderately yeah? It seems like you are working towards stopping this habit yourself, good luck!
To Okamoto: Because you don't notice your faults unless people around you point them out, please try to look at yourself more objectively alright? 
To Arioka: Since you're already over 20 years old, let's get rid of that  “I'm bad at getting up early” image. You're a kid that can do things if you try!
To Takaki: First of all, good luck with your diet. Since you're around 63kg now, drop to 58kg and keep it there! 
To Inoo: I hope you can gain some special talents that you can show on stage. Something with a similar level of impact as Chinen's trapeze acts. 
To Yabu: Try not to forget your things at work locations. In the past I really didn't understand how you could forget your bag at the shooting location (laughs).

Inoo Kei
1990.6.22 / Saitama prefecture / Blood Type A / Height 174cm

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to myself
I'll become a 4th Year university student in 2012. Well, that is if I can successfully go to the next grade (laughs).  I want to graduate properly. 
But before that, there is a huge wall in the way, which is going into the research rooms and finishing my graduation thesis---
I'm tackling architecture, but I'm not just interested in buildings on their own but I'm interested in building entire towns too. 
That's why I don't want to be stuck to the table, but I want to go to various towns, and talk to the people living there to organize my thesis.
Some time back when I visited Okinawa in my private time, I was told by a passing old man that “The houses in Okinawa, the walls are made of corals!”
I want to listen to more things like that---! 

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to members
To Yamada: Even though you've graduated from high school and I think you are slowly growing up to become an adult, don't forget your innocent side.
To Chinen: Even though it's good to do impersonations, do them only for about 5 minutes (laughs). If we leave you alone you'd go on for an hour.
To Nakajima: When we sit beside each other, please stop using me as a cymbal and tapping me!
To Okamoto: Because the gap between your burly muscles and your sensitive personality is amusing, become more muscular! (T/N: What the hell?!)
To Arioka: There are times when you are completely not listening to what people are saying! I hope you'll be able to be more interested in other people's issues.
To Takaki: I've been finding your childish side so hilarious these days. So, let's become close to each other~ (laughs).   
To Yaotome: You're too shy! In a shop you can't call out to the shop assistants. Work hard and call out with a loud voice! 
To Yabu: Try to refrain to talk about things that are too maniacal during concert MCs. The guests would be at a loss as to how to react. 

Yabu Kota
1990.1.31 / Kanagawa prefecture / Blood Type A / Height 178cm

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to myself
In 2012, I think it would nice if I could have a job as a caster/commentator for my favourite sport.
It's mixing of my career and private life to the extreme though (laughs).
Sports has a really manly image, so women are usually keep away from it right?
But with what I report, I hope to show the brilliance of sports to the female fans. 
Of course it's not a job that simply having the feeling of “like” would allow you to do, knowledge and way of speaking are also important.
Hence at home, I often comment on soccer or baseball games as I watch them.
If it was baseball, “the next would probably be a low inside pitch”, I would try to understand the ball route and explain it like that. 
And if the commentator says the same things, I get really hyper! (T/N: It's easy to picture this... xD)

2012.3 → 2013.4 Homework to members
To Yamada: You take too much notice of the things around you. You often ask me “You don't look too happy”, but I'm really fine!
To Chinen: You're walking speed is fast. Even though I definitely have a wider stride. Please match my pace when you can~
To Nakajima: When I do a gag, you look at me twice before laughing. When you don't laugh the first time I get a bit nervous. 
To Okamoto: Usually you follow along when I fool around, but it's funny so it's fine if you do it more (laughs)
To Arioka: Depending on the day, your mood is different. When you're not feeling good, I get lonely, so please keep your mood steadily high!
To Takaki: When we end up rooming together in hotels, I'm always the one waking you up. It's alright if you wake me up occasionally you know. 
To Inoo: I want you to stay just the way you are now. Because amongst the members, there are many things that I can't talk about with anyone else but Inoo-chan. (T/N: aidcbiaudsbciuabsdlcbasdicubasubca!!!!)
To Yaotome: You freak out when things don't proceed according to the schedule. Be calm and have a bit of space for allowances in your heart. 


:)) Hope you enjoyed this!! I'm currently working on some translations for school but I'll be back soon hopefully with Hikaru's article from Potato April :)

Constructive criticism is totally welcomed!

Please don't repost elsewhere without my permission. 

How to ask? Drop a comment below :) I know I'm not all that good right now, but it's only polite, don't you think?
