Yamada Ryosuke Jr Interview 2007


『highSpot山田涼介』+ Jr. PERSONAL DATA

Wink Up November ‘07

Looking back on 2007 so far do you think there is anything that has grown or changed about you?

Looking at myself today, I don’t think anything has changed? …not that I’ve noticed, ah that’s right (Lol). I cut my hair. I thought I’d be more drastic but, I was a little hesitant, and in the end it was a bit of a non-event that nobody noticed (Lol). Man~, It would have been great if I was brave enough to have it cut! Also, I grew two centimetres this year! …this is also a bit of a non-event though (Lol). But to me two centimetres is pretty huge. The target is 175cm! Wah, it’s quite a huge target. (For Hey! Say!’s melody and choreography) “This would be no good for Yamada” they’ll say (Lol). When I saw Yuto-kun for the first time in about two weeks the other day, he had grown so big! Even though it was only two weeks!? …Man, I wonder if it would be ok if Chi overtook me. If he ever overtakes me I think I’ll finally have to get serious about things (Lol). That’s right, I’ve also started to call Chinen-kun Chi, I guess that’s one thing that’s changed. But with Yuto-kun, I dunno, I still end up adding the “kun”. But we “got on normally” to start with but, lately we’ve become good enough friends that I can make fun of him like “Oi!” when he’s pissing me off. My goal, is to be able to have serious fights & call him by just his name! If I can do this, I think it would feel more real. (Takaki: It’s ok to just call me by my name too) Huh, no way no way no way! But I have been calling him “Yuya♥︎” lately. But I could never call him that in person (Lol).

There are three months left of 2017. Is there something you want to challenge this year, or something you want to overcome?

Since we were just talking about it, I want to become even better friends with Takaki-kun than I am now! Right, Yuyan♥︎ To give a normal answer for this kind of interview, I want to keep doing concerts at YokoAri from now on. I have to keep doing my best for this too! Since the seats at Odaiba in Summer were really close I was able to feel like we were “having fun together”. Because we were seriously right in front of each others eyes. But at YokoAri, we’ll be able to become bigger and bigger. I guess no matter what we do we’ll be able to feel that sense of unity together, it’s kind of exciting. Since rehearsals haven’t started yet, I have no idea what kind of things it will include but, I want to be able to show off all of our best sides.
