Aargh. It's been almost a month since the last post, again. *kicks self* My habit of procrastination has gotten worse since it's spreading to areas outside of school work. So, here's another RANDOM and short translation that I finished quite a long time ago but didn't post it up for whatever reason. I figured that I should just do it now while I'm taking a short break from reading during my spring break.

Since the last Hiro article I translated is mostly stuff already known by his fans, I have another short translation with Hiro's responses to 10 questions in vol. 2 autumn 2008 of KOI.MEN. Thanks for your help, krooxy. I hope you like it~

Scans can be found here @ pali_mari.


1. Right now, if you were to travel, where would you go and what would you do?
I'd like to go to New York to see the arts and shows to get motivation. That was my dream before entering this [entertainment/celebrity] world. I want it to come true some day.

2. What time is blissful to you?
When being with friends and talking about the future. I'll get cheerful like a kid on the day before meeting for an outing with friends from the student days. (laugh)

3. What's something that you'd be happy if somebody did it for you?
When somebody cooks for me. Normally, it's nothing but eating out and food at convenience stores, so I miss the taste of home once in a while. Because I can't cook. (laugh)

4. What kind of things do you not like that people make you do?
To be bounded. I don't like it when I'm told that "this is not good, that is not good." It's stressful if my time and freedom are snatched away.
[sorry. the answer doesn't seem to go with the question perfectly. perhaps i translated something wrong.]

5. What would you do if you won 300 million yen?
I'd buy a house at the best part of the city for my family. Even though I have things I want to do on my own, according to my priority, family is the first.

6. Did you cry recently?
I don't cry. (laugh) Recently, when I was watching the Olympics on TV, I became teary but tears didn't come out.

7. Please tell us about something you're proud of your home.
There's no unnecessary things, very simple. Even though I don't particularly like keeping things clean, my home is clean to an extent that things aren't scattered around.

8. Please tell us about any not-yet-shown, unknown special skill.
I plan to learn beat-boxing from my friends. Though it's not yet a special skill, I pushed myself to the situation where I have to talk about my skill here. (laugh)

9. Which part of a woman do you think is mysterious?
After thinking [and overcoming reluctance], it's the girls who talk about the exact opposite. It's a mystery that I'm not too familiar with such honesty. Actually, if I have to say, I'm that type of person too. (laugh)

10. To Mizushima-san, "love" is?
For somebody collateral seek to be touched . As it is called motherly love that is free, being able to move in a relationship without having to look back for somebody. I' not in a relationship, but if it's for the person whom I trust, I'll offer that kind of love.
[but we know that hiro is with ayaka now, right? ^^]


As a newbie fan looking up more info on Hiro, I've tried google but I couldn't find the answer to this: Does anyone know why Hiro changed his name? I get that "Hiro" comes from the last character/word of his real name, but I'm just wondering where "Mizushima" come from...^^';; Any possible answers are greatly appreciated...if there're actually any answers out there...

Thanks for reading!

Thanks so much for translating! As to why he changed his name, maybe it was to protect his family's privacy or something? Actors/models sometimes take stage names for those reasons. IDK tho. Hope you find the answer!
Mar. 20th, 2009 07:21 am (UTC)
Ah, I guess that's one of the reasons why he changed his name. Thanks for answering, and you're welcome for the translation. xD

Aww, Hiro, you're such a cutie.

Thanks for translating! :D

If I live in Japan, I'll volunteer myself cooking for Hiro ^___^
Maybe he's really not in relationship. I mean, he is dating Ayaka but it doesn't mean that they really have relationship, right? Oh well, I'm happy if they do anyway.
Mar. 20th, 2009 10:58 am (UTC)
Thanks a lot!
Weren't ayaka and Hiro already an item in October?

Thank you for translating!

I haven't heard anything else about the name change though. Sorry.

I do want to hear him beatbox someday. haha

I don't think he changed his name cause he wanted to protect his family or anything. Because Saito is a really common name in Japan. It could have been any family at all. :/ Oh well, thanks for the translations! 8D

Why do we say "welcome" and "irrashaimase" at the start of each entry?

You might wonder about that. This community is like a crepes store, except we provide free translations of selected Japanese articles rather than selling actual crepes. We want readers or "customers" to enjoy our translations as if they're savoring delicious crepes. So, please be welcomed and enjoy~
