p48-49 (interview)

Today, I want to ask you about your new song [Konoha] which will be released in October…..



RUKA: Eh? Is that what we are talking about today? Isn’t it the after interview about our live in Kokusai Forum?



HITSUGI: Hey, it’s too late for the after interview. (This interview was held in the later part of July!)



Thanks HITSUGI. So the song and lyrics of [Konoha] were written by RUKA, which seems cooler in comparison to your recent singles.



RUKA: Yes. We continuously released heavy metal work for a while.



HITSUGI: Is it the first time for us to put this kind of tune on side A? Generally up-tempo tunes are on our side A.



Ni~ya: Well, actually we have had this kind of tune in side B. For example, [Nazuki] or [Tsuki no Hikari, Utsutsu no Yume].



Is it already Autumn?



RUKA: Yes. It’s Autumn.



HITSUGI: We are also releasing it in Autumn. But we made it quite a long time ago.



SAKITO: It was around the same time of [the WORLD].



RUKA: Did I make it leading up to last autumn!?(Surprised.)



HITSUGI: Yes, you made it last summer.



SAKITO: We have finished all of the basic instruments’ recordings already.



YOMI: We recorded the vocals only this year.



HITSUGI: I thought it would be in the album, but it was left out.



RUKA, did you push this song the most?



RUKA: No, I thought it would be [cloudy dayz] of side B this time.



Surely that song seems more like a side A song. By the way, how did the song [Konoha] come about?



RUKA: I have had my favorite manga for a long time, and I imagined it while I wrote the song. The manga’s name is a secret.



So did your image come from the manga?



RUKA: Yes. But the ending is different, because I really liked the manga, but I didn’t like its ending.



So you made it the way you would have ended it?



RUKA: Yes, yes.



It is a long time ago, but can you remember your first impression of the song?



HITSUGI: I wasn’t really sure about RUKA’s song. Not so much the melody but more the song itself.



Well, I felt that the distance between RUKA and SAKITO became smaller. I feel that it’s this song that exists between them.



HITSUGI: Ah, I feel so too.



Ni~ya: I thought this song seemed unusual for RUKA like “RUKA doesn’t write this kind of medium tune songs often.”.



That’s true. Recently RUKA’s image was like a little bit bad in the album 『the WORLD Ruler』(laugh), which was a violent image, coming strongly from negative power.



Ni~ya: But the song is very cool, and I thought it was very good when I listened to the song with the vocals in it.



YOMI: As for the key, I feel good singing it.



SAKITO: I hardly remember because it was made such a long time ago…. Maybe, I was thinking about [the WORLD」more. After we recorded it, I realized that I really liked the songs we had been recording recently.



I think I understand that. It seems similar to the sound of [Jojoutekini sugita jikan to fukakuteina mirai eno requiem] (= The time passed passionately, a requiem for an indefinite future.).



SAKITO: Ah… yeah you may be right.



Don’t you remember how you approached doing then?



SAKITO: Yes I do, very mellow.



With some sweetness?



SAKITO: Yes. I made it more adult-like, more jazz guitar playing. Not so much warping, or sharp sounds. I could record it just as I had imagined it.



I thought you put fusion jazz elements into the song.



HITSUGI: The guitar playing that SAKITO plays in the interlude is cool. He cuts the guitar riffs, which join into one later on in the song.



SAKITO: Ah, do you mean the part which my guitar unisons with the bass line? I like it too.



HITSUGI: Do you think so too? That’s very cool!



SAKITO: Yeah, I think it’s good.



HITSUGI: In a way it has a calmness about it.



That’s the moment when it becomes suddenly cool.



HITSUGI: Eh?



Well, I mean it becomes calm a little bit there.



SAKITO: I thought the bass line of the main melody is cool.



Ni~ya: Yeah, I thought “I did it!” when I played it by myself.



SAKITO: What are we doing flattering each other?(laugh)



(laugh) I think it’s good sometimes. Anything else you want us to say RUKA?



RUKA: Uhn. Nothing I think.



HITSUGI: I was told by RUKA to play it rather lightly. Not like my usual heavy playing ‘Zun zun zun….’, but to put strokes like ‘jan jan ja~~~~n…..’.



It’s like leaves falling of trees!



HITSUGI: That’s it!



Have other people said that?



HITSUGI: Um… no.(laugh)



The piano is used really effectively.



RUKA: I used a chime sound like you hear at school in the beginning using the piano.



I thought it seemed like a clock chime.



RUKA: We haven’t shot a PV yet, but we have no idea what it would be.



It seems to suit having a story. Using actors and the story is in a school.



RUKA: So someone in our members must disguise themselves as a woman. If so, there is no one except HITSUGI who can do it.



HITSUGI: Why do members have to act in it?! We don’t have to act, others could do it.(laugh)



By the way, YOMI, how did you get this song?



YOMI: I had a rough image or idea of the song and [Konoha] was a sad image. So I sang it as it came to me really. And RUKA said to sing it that way since it was a temporally song.



So from the temporary song stage, it was good.



RUKA: Well, it was normal.



YOMI: Hahahaha…. I feel good when I sing the main melodies.



RUKA: Do you mean the real main melody?



YOMI: Yes.



Do you understand this feeling?



YOMI: Uh~~n….I don’t know.



HITSUGI: (in his small voice) Say “I understand.”!



YOMI: Well, I understand in a way. Wahahahaha!



YOMI, you are an honest good kid.(laugh)



YOMI: Yes! I really understand the main melodies most. I think these kinds of lyrics can’t be written by anyone except RUKA, so it’s precious.



You mean, feelings are uncertain, but sometimes we have to communicate them clearly.



HITSUGI: Not only feelings, but also we need to convey thoughts and feeling by using words.



Yes. I felt that when I listened to the song. However, why are ‘cold flowers’ falling, instead of ‘leaves’?



RUKA: It’s because the season is turning from Autumn to Winter.



I see. Then, in 2nd song [cloudy dayz], it becomes winter.



RUKA: That’s it.



Did you really think so?



RUKA: Not at all.



I thought you would say that. This song seems like it whirls refreshingly and really creates a mood of frozen air like winter.



Ni~ya: This song was recorded around February.



RUKA: I didn’t think anything when I made the music, and lyrics came naturally when I made the temporary lyrics, which weren’t as dirty as usual.



When you made the serious temporary lyrics, this came out naturally?



RUKA: I just placed words as the came to me.



Even so, the content seems like you had something you wanted to say.



RUKA: …..(smile silently)



You seem like you know, but you don’t. If you know what I mean. (laugh)



RUKA: Hahaha. These 2 songs have nothing special really about them, so I can’t really explain it.



You didn’t decide a theme but they came out naturally, which means that you are a real artist.



RUKA: I don’t know. Music comes out often without a theme, but with lyrics, I always make a theme.



So it might be the voice in your head? Well, I won’t investigate any further.(laugh)



Ni~ya: I thought this song would be chosen as the first single after releasing our album.



Eh!? For the main theme song of 『CLAYMORE』?



Ni~ya: Yes. I thought this song would be used.



HITSUGI: At first I really felt as though it was pop.



It’s a fresh sound.



Ni~ya: It isn’t hard like our usual songs. We didn’t think about anything before our playing but the phrases came out naturally when we played together.



SAKITO: When I listened to this song, the color popped into my mind first. I had an image of light gray, so I thought the guitar phrases would be the same color, even it was just an image.



HITSUGI: I didn’t feel so much in our rehearsal, but when I recorded my guitar sounds I felt that Nightmare became able to create such a sound. If it were our last album I don’t think that it would have made it in, or we would have made it considerably heavier. But now we seem to be able to play this kind of music comfortably, freshly and normally.



Does it mean that this fresh sound matches Nightmare’s image?



HITSUGI: No~, I don’t want it to match us. But more fit in with us. (laugh)



RUKA: The sounds remind me Hokkaidou.



Ni~ya: Really? I remember Hokkaidou when I listen to [Konoha].



RUKA: Do you?



YOMI: Is it because of the lyrics ‘Tokeidai’(=clock tower), yes?



Ni~ya: Yes, yes!



HITSUGI: A clock tower is a pinpoint. Does it mean a clock tower in Sapporo?



YOMI: Wahahaha! So people in Hokkaido might be able to sympathize with this song.



So you have pin-pointed what area can sympathize with this song?



Ni~ya: This time it’s the north.(laugh)



Then what was your image, YOMI?



YOMI: I had an image of Hokkaidou because of the clock tower part too.



HITSUGI: See?!(laugh)



(laugh) YOMI and Ni~ya are so alike!



YOMI: Yeah, people say that.



RUKA: You are so good friends.



YOMI: [cloudy dayz] also has an image of Winter. Well maybe not so much Winter, or a season, but I remember the times when I was depressed. I think that that fits me more.



You know, we are going into Autumn now. When do you feel about “Summer being over.”?



RUKA: I feel so 『24hours TV』.



HITSUGI: I understand. It broadcasts at around the end of the summer vacation, so we realize that “Summer is going to end.”.



Autumn comes after we are moved……which is the image I have. So you see the TV program every year, don’t you?



RUKA: No, I don’t. (laugh) As the commercial for 『24hours TV』is broadcasted more often, I think “Ah, it’s that season already.”.



HITSUGI: I feel Autumn when I see plants losing their energy.



Do you?(laugh)



HITSUGI: Don’t you understand? They loose their freshness, and their leaves droop, like they haven’t died yet but became a little bit brown.



I understand. I can imagine such a scene. Like sunflowers that are drooping.



HITSUGI: Yes, when I see such scene, I feel “Summer is over. So long!”.(laugh)



It’s nice that you can feel the seasons when traveling along the road.



HITSUGI: But is it primitive for man to judge from nature?



Ni~ya: Wahahaha!



YOMI: Well for me…..



RUKA: What about when September comes?



YOMI: Yes, I feel so! At the moment when September begins, I feel autumn! (laugh)



Hey, please tell me more.



YOMI: (laugh) But in Tokyo, there are not so many things that make us feel like “Summer is over.”. I feel it more in local regions.



Ni~ya: I understand. The smell changes.



Do you mean the smell of Autumn?



YOMI: Yes, yes, in Autumn, people burn grass.



HITSUGI: After the harvest of rice, people burn straw in rice fields.



YOMI: I feel Autumn when I smell the smoke.



Ni~ya: I’m similar to Zozzy.



YOMI: We look like to each other.



HITSUGI: The time when we can’t get beetles anymore is Autumn for me.



Ni~ya: I see. When we go looking for them and can’t find any, I feel lonely.



HITSUGI: Our talk has become very rustic.(laugh) I feel Autumn when dragonflies begin to fly, don’t you?



YOMI: Yes, yes!



HITSUGI: When I happen to see a dragonfly flying early in season, I often make the mistake “Uh? Is it already autumn?”.



It’s the dragonfly that’s mistaken, I think.



HITSUGI: Normally cicadas chirp loudly toward the end of summer. But the other day, there was a cicada in the elevator and it wasn’t the season yet, and I was so surprised.



SAKITO: And there are the ones which chirp at night sometimes hey?



HITSUGI: Yes! Aren’t they usually near outdoor lights?



SAKITO: I think they mistake the light for daytime.



YOMI: In the year before the last year, we did an open-air concert. There were many shedded skins of cicadas around the trees. It was weird.



That was October 1st.



SAKITO: Why do we when we grow up dislike insects?



YOMI: Recently, I hate grasshoppers.



SAKITO: I understand.



HITSUGI: I’m alright with beetles and stag beetles. Ah, and butterflies and spiders are also OK, so I think I’m alright with insects.



SAKITO: I’m not good with caterpillars too.



ITSUGI: Do you know spanworms? Don’t you think they are cute? When I let them walk on my finger, they loose their way in which direction they would go at the edge of my finger. Isn’t it interesting? And the ones that float in water.



SAKITO: Isn’t that just mosquito larva?



HITSUGI: Yes, that’s it. I was shocked when I found out that they become mosquitoes…..



SAKITO: I can’t believe that you put a spanworm on your finger.



HITSUGI: Ahahaha! Really?(laugh)



Let’s end this talk here before it gets any more stranger…So, how about you, SAKITO? When do you feel the end of summer?



SAKITO: I feel it when I see dragonflies, smell the rice harvest, and when typhoons come. But actually I start to become aware when I go shopping for clothes and see the autumn and winter clothes displayed there, like “It’s already the season.”.



RUKA and SAKITO answered like people who live in the city.



SAKITO: (laugh) Unfortunately, we can’t feel the seasons so much in Tokyo.



By the way, you’ll play in Nippon Budoukan soon. It’s one of the places where you have been longing to play in, I think. How do you feel?



YOMI: I thought “Can we really do this?” when it was decided. Now I think I got more confidence by playing in Kokusai Forum. That live was very good. So now I don’t worry so much.



HITSUGI: We sold enough tickets, so I’m a little bit relieved. But not so eager.



The tickets are sold out. That’s great.



HITSUGI: Now we have to do many things such as recording. First of all, we’ll do what we should do now firmly, then we’ll start the rehearsal, so when that starts I think that we will really get a realization of playing at the Budoukan. It’s a place where my favorite artists have stood and played in, and I will be able to see the view from the same place, which makes me happy.



Ni~ya: I agree with you. When I think about standing in the same place as others have stood I get excited.



Well I hope you become artists who will play there many more times.

Zozzy, I think you’ll cry.



YOMI: I won’t cry!
PHEW! IM DONE! ^^''
