This might be an effort to be made in a sense, but can also be deemed an investment in ourselves for the future, and does not actually cost money, but time and “heart” only.

All the people I have been connected to have become my family member. We are all crews and family members. Back then some used to say, “Do not do a family business”, or “Do not trade with money with your members”, but now that I have done that, I’ve realized jobs are more of fun when done with my members and that if you can get along with your members with respect, without bad minds, troubles won’t occur, either. Even when a trouble is about to occur, if you can talk with your members first to solve, I guess doing a family business is definitely better, or that to be able to talk to each other outright is very important. I often tell my family to tell me all of what they feel or have got to say. Or that we’ve got this much of a gap between us which may widen alongside the passage of time to be out of hands and thus should be filled up whenever we can. It may be a minor thing, but it is important to take preventative measures beforehand not to cause the worst incident. This might be an effort to be made in a sense, but can also be deemed an investment in ourselves for the future, and does not actually cost money, but time and “heart” only. You are advised to work on with your members for whom you can embrace such a feeling. If not, you just shouldn’t include one into your family. That’s what I feel now for my age. Now I’ve got the information I deem perfect which in turn it to be “further perfected”. Because there is no “degree” to so-called “perfection, when you reach the grade of 100, you’ll aim at 1,000 as full marks for the next, to be expanded infinitely. If you reach 100 within yourself, the next question is how much you’ll be able to accumulate further. I want to form “Fukuryu-en” (the connected flow of happiness) as my connection to people as my best treasure to challenge to see how far I can go with this current style. I reached Hollywood with this. I’ve realized that I can even perform a live in front of the audience of 50 or 100 there, then I’ll be keen on how further I will be able to have fun.

As the internet has emerged, the direct communications have been enabled to have somewhere overturned the relative importance of the main stream and the underground.

I think my base hasn’t changed but I may have lost my hungriness. Or the spearhead of my hungriness is not directed at the society anymore. Instead I’ve become keener on perfecting or enhancing myself or my own lifestyles. For example, what about AKB, whether something is real or not, such outward feelings have gone, so I feel. Each of us is doing what he / she loves. While I still have my own opinions on what are cool and what are not but now I am able to express what I feel not necessarily by speaking out. The sense that I have a place where you don’t have to “replace or outrank” someone else gives me forward-looking good vibes. As the internet has emerged, the direct communications have been enabled to have somewhere overturned the relative importance of the main stream and the underground. Ever since there have been trends those in the main stream would copy what were in fashion in the underground to make them in fashion outside, which has been truly overturned. Now is the age what we have disseminated in social networks for thousands of people will be picked up by Yahoo news or TV. In sum, the order has been reversed. This is what I hoped for from the bottom of my heart in my 20’s, which I feel is becoming a reality. I do watch net but not TV. I don’t feel like I will go look for something new for myself. Something that comes in when I think I will perfect what are within my reach or view might be looked at, but rare. Encounters that might change my life, not seen yet, however, may still exist a lot, which should be well embraced.

I’ve come to consider money as a form of love. I’ve met through Pinky a middle-aged woman with the annual revenue of her business amounting to 3.6 billion yen or so to talk with her about various things over dinner. The feeling as “I am happy even without money” would have made me stay that way for a lifetime without such encounters.

I’ve come to consider money as a form of love. I’ve met through Pinky a middle-aged woman with the annual revenue of her business amounting to 3.6 billion yen or so to talk with her about various things over dinner. This woman is rather extraordinary, making me think she belongs to “galaxy army” or something (not earthly). She is someone who wears green fur coat and such a “huge” ring, for which I asked, “What is that?”, “What is it made of?” (gigantic, indeed). While we were talking that “huge” ring of hers “collides” with the table in front of us to make a “huge” noise. But she’s got no venom to have told me bluntly “she is earning 3.6 billion yen annually”, a blunt one indeed. To be induced to consult her “I have, too, pursed my work with the similar commitment you’ve just told me, and honestly I’ve expressed what I felt more than anyone else but I haven’t got money at all, ma’am.” Then our conversation went as follows “What do you think about money?”, “Well, without it I can be happy.”, “There, that’s wrong!”, “Well, you can be happy ‘without’ money, but you can be happy ‘with money’, too, right? Why don’t you direct yourself that way? Money is love, coming as a reward for you to have made everyone happy, or one to come back in return for love you’ve diffused to everyone, where if it doesn’t, you’ve got some problems for that. If you do not love money, money won’t love you either. money goes to those who love it.”. Some may think money is there abundantly or ubiquitously on which she further elaborated “Money is immense and everywhere. It is not that you are greedy to have raked in that or this much. You will receive the amount you deserve, then if you are hard-working enough, you should be forgiven to think you can rake in almost infinitely, for it is the reward for your love.”.
