【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png Oh, so this's Edo Park! It looks just like you'd imagine it, based on the name.
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki T.png This place being made to be as close as possible to the real thing is its selling point.

It's like we've gone back in time to the Edo period! This is so exciting!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...Idols going back in time to the Edo period, huh... I could write a book about that.

...In that case, there's the question of how many years we've gone back in time. It would be the end of the Edo period...

【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png Woah! Idols in the end of the Edo period sounds like it'd be an interestin' story!
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...No, excuse me... our job today is to report on traditional Edo-period craftsmaking.

...Before we report, we must deepen our understanding of traditional crafts. ...I heard that we can experience making traditional crafts ourselves at the workshop. Shall we go now?

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png Amazin'! So the shops here all do traditional handicrafts!?
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png Considering it's just an experience facility, it sure does look like the real deal.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png We'll report about this, huh...'kay, first off we gotta choose which things we're gonna try.
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png Kazuki-anisan and the rest seemed to have already decided on theirs, so we shouldn't overlap...

Oh, this wood carving is rather...'kay, I'm going ‘ere.

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png Genbu, look ‘ere! You can draw on a lantern in this one!

It looks like a penlight at a live, ain't it pretty? I'm decided on this one!

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png Haha. With those done, we sure decide fast huh.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png They say walls fly at great speed or somethin' don't they!? Let's hurry up and get to experiencin'! *
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png What they said was "wars are won by great speed,"...I wonder if we meant the same thing.

* Suzaku says 塀は神速でかっ飛ぶって ("Fences fly at great speed"), the correct one is what Genbu says, 兵は神速を尊ぶ ("Soldiers respect great speed"). The takeaway is that the first words of both were homophones ("hei"), and the verb is completely different.

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...Is that Ryo and Daigo? How are you doing? Are you both finished already?
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png Yeah! The craftsman taught me how to make a Kumihimo! Man, that was fun!
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...I was just finishing up drying my indigo dyed scarf. It will be done very soon.
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki T.png Indigo dye is dried in the sun? I had no idea...
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...Apparently, drying it in the sun makes the indigo color more vivid. I'm excited to see the finished product.

...Actually making something like this is a valuable experience. ...If I hadn't done this, I wouldn't know the senses such as touch and smell that go along with this experience. ...This experience should make a world of difference in the persuasiveness of our report.

【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png Uh huh! I've gotta put all the stuff the craftsman taught me to good use in our report!
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki T.png Yeah! Let's make a report that gets others interested in making traditional crafts!

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png Genbu look at this! The Crimson Suzaku Lantern is complete!

So it's easy to get attached to it when ya make it yourself. Hehe.

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png I know the feelin'. This irregularly-sculpted turtle surprisingly ain't that bad either.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png I wonder if we can get this through to the viewers at home, huh...
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png What's the matter. Ya don't seem well, Suzaku.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png Even though I've done lives, quiz shows, and movie shoots so far...

It's my first report, and it's a live broadcast. Honestly, I ain't confiden– Geeh! What the heck Nyako, don't just headbutt me like that outta nowhere!

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono T.png That's just how that guy encourages, ain't it. Somethin' like "If it's Suzaku, he can do it!"
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai T.png ...Thanks. There ain't any time for me to feel weak...

Let's practice!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...I think my first time indigo dyeing went well... I'm satisfied.
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png It turned out great, Sensei! That indigo looks good on ya.

Ryo, yer Edo-style fan looks good, too. I can tell ya put yer heart into makin' it!

【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki T.png Ehehe, thank you! The Kumihimo you made looks nice too!
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto T.png It sure does! Wahaha! I did great!
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png ...What's most important is that both of you are satisfied as well.
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki T.png Yes!

...Ah, it's almost time. How about we start getting ready to record? Let's make this a report that is truly us!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo T.png (...That's right, our job today is to report. We have to use our words, without anything being written down.)

(However... what words are truly me...?)

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png In Edo Park's experience facility, feel free to learn traditional craftsmaking...uhm...

(Dammit, my brain just went blank...this is a live broadcast!)

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png It would be great if you could deepen your understanding [of craftsmanship] through getting to experience it. Well then..

We'll pass the broadcast over to F-LAGS. How 'bout that, Kazuki-anisan, Ryo, Daigo!

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png ...m' bad, Genbu. 'Cuz of me y' even had to turn it over to F-LAGS.

I got no idea how to explain it, so I got nervous. I'm so stupid... ...Aah? What the hell, Nyako, that tickles... Haha, I said stoppit.

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png ...You still gotta get used to making explanations. That's okay, Suzaku.

All ya gotta do is just say what ya felt. I believe in ya.

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png Genbu...Nyako...thanks! I'll start over from here...


【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki+ T.png Now we'd like to share the appeal of traditional crafts with you!

This thing that I'm holding is an Edo-style fan that was made in the workshop.

【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png What's the difference b'tween that fan and any other ol' fan, Ryo?
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki+ T.png It's made of bamboo, so it's light. Also, even if you move it just a little bit...


【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png Woah, what a gentle yet strong breeze! That Edo fan might be perfect for ya.
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png (The charm of their report... it is due to them sharing their thoughts candidly.)

(I've been overthinking this. There was no need for me to search for words that are truly me...) (I'll put my thoughts and feelings into words... that's all I have to do.)

【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png Okay then, Sensei, what would ya say the appeal of the experience ya had of indigo dyein' is?
【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png ...The first thing I noticed was how many different shades of indigo there was. For example...

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png As expected from F-LAGS! We won't lose to ‘em either!
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png The camera's on ya, Suzaku. Ya ready?

3, 2...

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png ...Well then, now we're gonna introduce the crafts we made!
【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png When you light this lantern...
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png It looks like this. Pretty, huh?

It was hard to draw on the bumpy parts, but it was super fun!

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png And there's no chance of ya getting anything wrong,'cuz professional craftsmen will be helping ya.

But it was still difficult to create exactly as I imagined it. Again, I would like to extend my respect towards the craftsmen's excellent technique.

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png All of ya should also go here to experience the BURNING craftsmanship!!

【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png 【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki+ T.png 【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png "This was brought to you by F-LAGS!"
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png 【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png "And Shinsoku Ikkon!"
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png 【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki+ T.png 【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png "Thank you for watching!"
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png Great job at the recordin', ya two!

Our job went well today, too! Wahaha!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png ...I wonder if our report was able to fully reach the audience.
【Traditional Crafts】Ryo Akizuki+ T.png Once in a while, you said some words that were hard for me to understand...

But Kazuki-san, you explained your thoughts on indigo dyeing well! You did great!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png ...Is that so... I may have embellished my words too much.
【Traditional Crafts】Daigo Kabuto+ T.png No, it's good to have a big vocabulary. Ya can express yourself with that alone!

Yer a lil' bit different than usual when we're doin' a job that involves words. Just like I'd expect!

【My Own Color】Kazuki Tsukumo+ T.png ...So words are a strength of mine? I thought that was a useless ability for an idol to have, but...

...How I could make use of the things I'm skilled at... that is something I'll think about.

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png We got through the relay broadcast without incident somehow. Good work.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png Yeah... thanks a lot today, Genbu, Nyako.

I got no idea how I could thank ya when you’ve helped me that much...

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png Stupid. We ain't strangers, partner.

C'mon, this guy thinks so too.

【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png Aah?
(Zoom in on Nyako)
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png Even Nyako is replyin', what are ya, on Genbu's side!?

But, this is where I draw the line.

Lemme tell ya how I honestly feel!

【Traditional Crafts】Genbu Kurono+ T.png Good grief. Haven't you gotten back to your usual smile.
【Unexpected Talent】Suzaku Akai+ T.png Yeah! I won't lose.

'Cuz next time I’ll definitely be the cool one!
