    Hello, RINA here!
  • 0:07 - 0:14
    Today, I will be doing my first Q&A on this channel.
  • 0:14 - 0:23
    I will be answering a few questions that were submitted in response to my Instagram Story.
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    Thanks so much for submitting so many questions!
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    Let's get to the first question.
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    How has your YouTube experience been so far?
  • 0:32 - 0:33
    Good question!
  • 0:33 - 0:40
    Thanks to you guys, it's been fun to do this at my own pace.
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    Before I started my channel,
  • 0:42 - 0:50
    I was a little nervous as to how you guys would react to it,
  • 0:50 - 0:56
    but you guys have had even happier responses to it than I thought you would,
  • 0:56 - 1:01
    and I've gotten many warm comments.
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    I think I'll be able to have fun with this.
  • 1:05 - 1:08
    I have a lot of social media accounts, but...
  • 1:08 - 1:12
    How should I put this...
  • 1:13 - 1:20
    But it's like YouTube is a get-together of only my favorite people.
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    It's only been a few weeks,
  • 1:23 - 1:30
    but it's thanks to your responses that this has been a lot of fun.
  • 1:31 - 1:33
    Let's go to the next one.
  • 1:34 - 1:38
    Q. If you weren't in SCANDAL, what kind of job would you have?
  • 1:38 - 1:41
    This was asked a lot, surprisingly!
  • 1:41 - 1:42
    Hm...
  • 1:42 - 1:47
    This might be a non-answer, but I can't even imagine that!
  • 1:48 - 1:51
    If I hadn't been in a band,
  • 1:51 - 2:01
    then maybe I would have tried to be an entertainer, or someone who performs in front of an audience.
  • 2:01 - 2:05
    But I'm so glad that I have SCANDAL. I think that every day.
  • 2:06 - 2:07
    On to the next one.
  • 2:07 - 2:15
    Q. How many years did you attend Caless, and why did you decide to attend?
  • 2:15 - 2:22
    This question makes me think that this person really knows our history.
  • 2:22 - 2:33
    The impetus for starting the band was us meeting at Caless, a dance & vocal school in Osaka,
  • 2:33 - 2:35
    and then forming a band.
  • 2:36 - 2:48
    The reason why I decided to attend was not because I found out about Caless myself, went there for an audition, and was accepted into the school.
  • 2:48 - 2:51
    I had gone to a completely different audition,
  • 2:51 - 2:55
    and someone who I met there,
  • 2:55 - 2:58
    they were someone who worked at a record label.
  • 2:58 - 3:03
    They said that there's a dance & vocal school in Osaka,
  • 3:03 - 3:08
    and asked if I'd like to try studying there and growing my repetoire.
  • 3:08 - 3:11
    He recommended me and introduced me to teachers there.
  • 3:12 - 3:21
    That's how I learned about Caless and started taking lessons there.
  • 3:21 - 3:32
    Even now, we both make sure to exchange messages once a year during New Year's.
  • 3:32 - 3:35
    The other day too we talked on [the messaging app] LINE.
  • 3:35 - 3:45
    They discovered me and paved a way for me to the music industry,
  • 3:45 - 3:48
    so I'm still grateful to them to this day.
  • 3:48 - 3:54
    I forgot what I was supposed to be talking about...
    I took lessons for about three months! (So short)
    The band formed right after that,
    And I also attended during our indie days.
    I think about two years?
  • 3:55 - 4:00
    Q. Was there anything you were nervous about when you first started living on your own?
  • 4:01 - 4:03
    Let's see...
  • 4:03 - 4:07
    I moved to Tokyo in my second year of high school.
  • 4:07 - 4:09
    I moved from Nara Prefecture to Tokyo.
  • 4:10 - 4:15
    At that time our vocalist HARUNA and I were the only ones who moved to Tokyo,
  • 4:15 - 4:20
    and the two of us were going around here doing promo gigs.
  • 4:20 - 4:23
    HARUNA and I were living together at first.
  • 4:23 - 4:31
    TOMOMI and MAMI then moved to Tokyo after graduating from high school in their hometowns,
  • 4:31 - 4:35
    and the four of us were living together.
  • 4:35 - 4:44
    I later graduated high school and then began living on my own.
  • 4:45 - 4:50
    I think I was more nervous about moving to Tokyo.
  • 4:50 - 4:56
    I had already gotten used to living in Tokyo by then,
  • 4:56 - 5:02
    and I had the support of the other members and our staff members,
  • 5:02 - 5:05
    which is why I didn't have many worries.
  • 5:05 - 5:11
    I was a second-year high-school transfer student when I moved to Tokyo,
  • 5:12 - 5:14
    so I had no idea at all how the trains worked.
  • 5:15 - 5:17
    That was the thing I was most worried about.
  • 5:18 - 5:23
    HARUNA and I lived in the Sancha (short for Sangenjaya) area of Tokyo when we first moved here.
  • 5:23 - 5:27
    I would go from Sancha to Shimokitazawa by bus,
  • 5:27 - 5:33
    and then go from there to the Tsurukawa Station via an Odakyu line,
  • 5:33 - 5:37
    and then go from there to my school by bus.
  • 5:37 - 5:46
    I had no idea where to switch trains or which platform to go to,
  • 5:46 - 5:50
    so I was late on my first day of school!
  • 5:50 - 5:52
    And I was a transfer student too!
  • 5:52 - 5:58
    That's what I was nervous about.
  • 5:58 - 6:00
    I was like, "Will I be able to get home?"
  • 6:00 - 6:04
    I thought that the next day too,
  • 6:04 - 6:14
    but starting from the next day I made a friend at school that said they would walk with me until we had to split up.
  • 6:14 - 6:18
    I was helped by everyone.
  • 6:18 - 6:23
    I was so nervous back then about taking the train.
  • 6:23 - 6:28
    Also, the difference between my hometown and Tokyo was extreme.
  • 6:28 - 6:33
    The stations in Nara Prefecture are unmanned, like the one by my home,
  • 6:33 - 6:39
    and there would be boxes to put in your ticket.
  • 6:39 - 6:42
    They've since been updated and are now like normal [electronic] ticket gates.
  • 6:42 - 6:45
    It was difficult for me to grasp back then,
  • 6:45 - 6:49
    how the number of people, the number of trains, the number of Lawson [convenience stores]
  • 6:49 - 6:51
    were way different from what I was used to.
  • 6:51 - 6:53
    It made me want to cry!
  • 6:55 - 6:56
    But those were good memories!
  • 6:57 - 7:01
    Q. How do you psych yourself back up when your motivation's low?
  • 7:04 - 7:06
    Good question...
  • 7:06 - 7:18
    I too have times when I feel down, get hurt, and can't get motivated no matter what.
  • 7:18 - 7:20
    Hmm...
  • 7:20 - 7:27
    I think what helps me the most is watching a favorite movie or drama series for a change of pace,
  • 7:27 - 7:29
    or do my nails.
  • 7:29 - 7:33
    There are also times when you still can't find a solution.
  • 7:33 - 7:44
    Try talking to someone who understands you,
  • 7:44 - 7:51
    which could help you get back on track and get you motivated.
  • 7:51 - 7:55
    It'll help you turn things around.
  • 7:56 - 8:03
    Q. I'm a shy person. What are you careful with when interacting with people?
  • 8:04 - 8:05
    I see.
  • 8:06 - 8:09
    I'm not really a shy person,
  • 8:09 - 8:12
    at least when it comes to work (haha).
  • 8:12 - 8:18
    Like when people come to greet us in the dressing room, or when we go to meet someone,
  • 8:18 - 8:22
    I'll often take the lead and start talking first.
  • 8:22 - 8:28
    It's like I'm fully flipping my switch to "on."
  • 8:28 - 8:32
    When I meet someone new while we're working,
  • 8:33 - 8:43
    I'm aware of trying to start or connect the conversation.
  • 8:43 - 8:47
    The members of the band are quite shy by nature
  • 8:48 - 8:52
    and aren't super outgoing at all,
  • 8:52 - 8:55
    but when working they try and take the initiative as much as possible
  • 8:56 - 9:00
    and set a good ambiance as best they can.
  • 9:00 - 9:01
    They try their best.
  • 9:02 - 9:04
    This person said they're a shy person,
  • 9:05 - 9:11
    but I think it's better if you don't tell others you're a shy person.
  • 9:11 - 9:16
    Like, I think saying that in itself builds walls.
  • 9:17 - 9:24
    I think it could be good if you tried speaking about a small topic
  • 9:24 - 9:28
    and give the listener cues that you're listening.
  • 9:28 - 9:35
    Communicate gently without shutting yourself down.
  • 9:35 - 9:38
    You don't have to push yourself too hard.
  • 9:39 - 9:40
    Onto the next one.
  • 9:40 - 9:42
    Q. Do you want to get married?
  • 9:42 - 9:45
    I got a lot of questions like that!
  • 9:45 - 9:47
    A LOT of them.
  • 9:47 - 9:50
    I also got a lot of them from people overseas too.
  • 9:51 - 9:53
    Well...
  • 9:53 - 9:59
    I'm currently 28, and on August 21st of this year I'll be turning 29.
  • 9:59 - 10:06
    A lot of people get married around this age,
  • 10:06 - 10:09
    but as for myself...
  • 10:09 - 10:12
    I don't have an age by which I want to get married,
  • 10:13 - 10:15
    and I don't feel rushed at all.
  • 10:16 - 10:19
    Like, I haven't...
  • 10:19 - 10:23
    I haven't really considered it realistically...
  • 10:25 - 10:28
    That's where I'm at right now.
  • 10:28 - 10:33
    If you ask me if I really want to get married right now, I don't.
  • 10:33 - 10:38
    But I do think that that's one form of happiness.
  • 10:39 - 10:44
    If a time ever comes when I want to get married, then that's good too.
  • 10:44 - 10:53
    At that time, I hope you guys can congratulate me and support me.
  • 10:54 - 10:59
    I'm just going to let it happen naturally.
  • 10:59 - 11:05
    But if you call marriage the peak of happiness,
  • 11:05 - 11:09
    that's not what I feel it is.
  • 11:10 - 11:13
    Q. What perfume do you use?
  • 11:13 - 11:15
    I also got a lot of questions about this from girls.
  • 11:15 - 11:17
    Hold on a sec. I'll go get it.
  • 11:20 - 11:24
    Still, I don't often wear perfume.
  • 11:24 - 11:29
    When I do use it, I always use this one.
  • 11:30 - 11:32
    How should I show it?
  • 11:33 - 11:37
    It's hard to see it. Maybe like this?
  • 11:37 - 11:41
    Did it work? It's this one.

    CHANEL N°5 L'EAU Eau de Toilette (Spray)
  • 11:41 - 11:44
    It's a Chanel perfume.
  • 11:44 - 11:47
    I've been using this for a long time.
  • 11:48 - 11:52
    I don't use it that often, though.
  • 11:53 - 11:57
    It smells really nice. It's my favorite.
  • 11:59 - 12:01
    I'll put the name of it in the on-screen text.
  • 12:02 - 12:06
    I also surprisingly got a lot of questions about this.
  • 12:06 - 12:12
    Q. What laundry detergent do you use?
  • 12:13 - 12:17
    It's super ordinary! It's a pink laundry detergent pac.
  • 12:17 - 12:20
    What's its official name?
  • 12:20 - 12:22
    I'll put that in the subs too.

    Bold Gel Ball 3D, Relaxing Premium Blossom Fragrance
  • 12:22 - 12:27
    Laundry detergent pacs are convenient and smell great. Yep.
  • 12:28 - 12:33
    Q. Is there something you've been hooked on during this stay-at-home period?
  • 12:33 - 12:35
    There is!
  • 12:36 - 12:37
    Well...
  • 12:37 - 12:42
    I've talked about this in various places so I'm sure a lot of people know this,
  • 12:42 - 12:46
    but I watched the anime "Atashin'chi" every day.
  • 12:46 - 12:50
    I was so hooked on it! It was so cute!
  • 12:50 - 12:56
    What supported me during this time was definitely "Atashin'chi."
  • 12:57 - 13:03
    Watching it as an adult,
  • 13:03 - 13:11
    it was something good amid these days where nothing was happening.
  • 13:11 - 13:18
    A lot of things resonated with me.
  • 13:18 - 13:27
    There are a few gaps between how we think now from when it was made [in the early 2000s] in the lines and scenes.
  • 13:28 - 13:30
    I can't name all of them, though.
  • 13:33 - 13:38
    I want everyone to be kind-hearted.
  • 13:39 - 13:42
    I don't know if that summing it up like that makes sense, though.
  • 13:42 - 13:46
    First, I watched the entirety of "Atashin'chi"--it goes up to season four.
  • 13:46 - 13:49
    And then I watched [the sequel series called] "Shin Atashin'chi,"
  • 13:49 - 13:52
    and then I watched the "Atashin'chi" movie.
  • 13:52 - 13:54
    All of them were great.
  • 13:54 - 13:56
    I really love the character called Mother.
  • 13:56 - 13:57
    She's adorable♡
  • 13:58 - 13:59
    Onto the next one.
  • 13:59 - 14:02
    Q. Is there a drama series you're currently watching?
  • 14:02 - 14:08
    Yes, there is. What I'm watching right now is "American Horror Story" on Netflix.
  • 14:08 - 14:15
    It's a series aimed towards adults so there are a lot of dark scenes.
  • 14:15 - 14:23
    I'm having fun watching it every day while learning about a lot different things.
  • 14:23 - 14:25
    I'm currently on season three.
  • 14:25 - 14:28
    It's scary, but it's fun to watch.
  • 14:29 - 14:30
    Onto the next one.
  • 14:30 - 14:32
    Q. Do you wear colored contacts?
  • 14:32 - 14:34
    I also got a lot of questions about this.
  • 14:34 - 14:36
    I don't wear them. I don't have anything in my eyes right now.
  • 14:38 - 14:41
    Could you tell? My eyes are bare.
  • 14:42 - 14:43
    Onto the next one.
  • 14:44 - 14:48
    Q. Do you diet? If you know anything that's effective, please tell us.
  • 14:48 - 14:52
    I'm not dieting at all right now.
  • 14:52 - 14:54
    It's been several years.
  • 14:54 - 14:57
    When we had our major label debut,
  • 14:57 - 14:59
    or actually when we were on an indie label,
  • 14:59 - 15:01
    we were quite a bit.
  • 15:01 - 15:02
    We were working towards our major debut
  • 15:02 - 15:07
    and people at our managing office said that we should be toning ourselves up a little more,
  • 15:07 - 15:10
    and we were doing that.
  • 15:10 - 15:18
    But thinking about that now, we were really influenced by others back then.
  • 15:18 - 15:22
    From middle to high school,
  • 15:22 - 15:31
    girls' bodies store fat to an extent as they mature into women,
  • 15:31 - 15:35
    and I really don't think you should go against that.
  • 15:35 - 15:38
    That [time frame for us] was around 14 years ago,
  • 15:38 - 15:45
    and I think we, our staff, and the world as a whole feel completely different about that now.
  • 15:45 - 15:49
    I thought that being thinner was more beautiful or cute,
  • 15:49 - 15:55
    but I really do think that everyone's bodies are different and are perfect the way they are,
  • 15:55 - 15:59
    so I don't want people to do unreasonable diets.
  • 15:59 - 16:01
    I want you guys to be healthy.
  • 16:01 - 16:04
    As for effective diets,
  • 16:04 - 16:09
    I think both eating well and exercising are important.
  • 16:09 - 16:10
    (I suddenly ran out of breath)
  • 16:10 - 16:14
    It takes a lot of stamina to not waver when drumming,
  • 16:14 - 16:17
    so I have no plans at all to [do any dieting] right now.
  • 16:17 - 16:20
    I want to eat good food!
  • 16:22 - 16:23
    Onto the next one.
  • 16:23 - 16:28
    Q. Is it not good to prioritize work over friends or a boyfriend?
  • 16:28 - 16:29
    I see.
  • 16:30 - 16:32
    Hmm...
  • 16:33 - 16:36
    I thought that was fine to do.
  • 16:37 - 16:47
    I'm also someone who prioritizes work over everything else.
  • 16:47 - 16:52
    But when you have a boyfriend or want to have fun with friends,
  • 16:52 - 16:58
    I think it's normal to prioritize work.
  • 16:59 - 17:02
    I think everything's connected, though.
  • 17:02 - 17:09
    By working hard, you can do more things and have more fun when you see your partner.
  • 17:09 - 17:14
    When I talk with my friends, we often talk about work.
  • 17:15 - 17:20
    I think everything's connected in a circle,
  • 17:20 - 17:28
    so I think that prioritizing work and doing your best are good things.
  • 17:29 - 17:30
    Onto the next one.
  • 17:30 - 17:32
    Q. What name is best to call you by?
  • 17:34 - 17:36
    I don't really have any nicknames.
  • 17:36 - 17:40
    I'm called "RINA-chan" or just "RINA,"
  • 17:40 - 17:42
    And I'm happy to be called either.
  • 17:43 - 17:49
    I think "RINA-chan" or "RINA" is simpler than saying a nickname.
  • 17:51 - 17:55
    These were the questions I picked out and answered!
  • 17:55 - 18:00
    It feels weird to be talking all by myself at home.
  • 18:01 - 18:06
    I'll be editing this myself and posting it.
  • 18:06 - 18:07
    It was interesting.
  • 18:07 - 18:14
    There were a lot of things I don't talk about in music magazine interviews and the like.
  • 18:14 - 18:17
    When I first started my YouTube channel,
  • 18:18 - 18:21
    I thought that it would be okay if I didn't speak in my videos--
  • 18:21 - 18:23
    That it would be okay not to speak.
  • 18:23 - 18:27
    I thought I'd just use on-screen text along with a video, but...
  • 18:29 - 18:32
    I ended up speaking!
  • 18:33 - 18:36
    Well, I'll try out all sorts of things.
  • 18:37 - 18:42
    Things that I'd like to try out will take shape.
  • 18:43 - 18:51
