This is the 9th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories. As usual, it’s a fun episode. The 2 hosts are hilarious. This episode mostly focuses on thinking up a new nickname for Kamiya-san. In the previous episodes, Kamiya-san expressed his interest in having a nickname just like Ono Daisuke’s “OnoD”, so he asked the show’s listeners to send their suggestions. The following are the suggestions that they received and a rough translation of the 2 hosts’ comments:
Shuuka-san (Listener): OnoD, Kamiya-san, good evening. As for Kamiya-san‘s nickname, how about something like “Piroshi”? Isn’t it cute?
Kamiya: Piroshi, huh? I’ve been called Piroshi by Naminiku-san before already.
Ono: Naminiku? That’s a terrible name. Isn’t he your senpai?
2. EROSHI (“Ero” means pervert)
Oily Potato (Listener): Eroshi-san–
Kamiya: I’ll beat you up.
Oily Potato: Good evening.
Kamiya: I’ll really beat you up.
Oily Potato: Eroshi, OnoD, good evening. As for Kamiya’s pet name, isn’t “Eroshi” a good-sounding name? You don’t object, Kamiya-san, right?
Kamiya: Aaaaaah hahaha.. That’s just so sloppy. Sloppy! Like I’ll use that name. . .Oily Potato, isn’t it? I’m a bit offended.
Ono: So you’ll consider it?
Kamiya: Like I will! Never.
Ono: Eh? Never?
Kamiya: How would you feel if you’re called “Ono DaiSukebe” (Ono Big Pervert)? Would you feel good?
Ono: No, I won’t.
Ono: How about “Sexy”?
Kamiya: No. I don’t see where you got that.
Ono: Kamiya is sexy.
Kamiya: There’s no basis for that. If I’m called sexy-san. . .nobody will know who it is.
Kagayaki (Listener): How about KamiD?
Kamiya: Why does it have to match Ono-kun?
Ono: KamiD, OnoD.
Kamiya: There won’t be any distinctions between us if that happens.
5. KAMIIYA / KAMIYAN
Aily (Listener): How about “Kamiiya” or “Kamiyan”?
Kamiya: My name got longer?
Saiyu (Listener): Since Ono-san is OnoD, how about Hiroshi-san matches him with “HiroC”?
Kamiya: “HiroC”, huh?
Ono: Yes, HiroC. Like A B C D.
Kamiya: OnoD. . .HiroC. . .Oh, I see.
Ono: I think that HiroC and OnoD are rather good.
Kamiya: I wonder about that. . . .
Kamiya: Okay, let’s keep the suggestions coming for now. Please don’t give up, everyone, and continue to send your suggestions.
My personal favourite is “HiroC”, which will eventually become his nickname in the next episodes. I thought that it was very smart and creative. It also demonstrates Kamiya-san‘s seniority over OnoD because C comes before D. What do you think?
Next up is the Sylph Soudanshitsu Corner. They introduce a manga title “Anonymous” by mangaka Imamura Yoko-sensei (今村陽子). Then they read Imamura-sensei‘s nayami (worries). Here is a rough translation:
Imamura-sensei no Nayami: I’m very poor at thinking up character names for my manga. Is there an easy way to find good names? Do both of you have favourite names?
Kamiya: None in particular.
Ono: None. Character names, huh?
Kamiya: Anonymous. . .Like a pseudonym.
Kamiya: It’s not Aonimous. It’s Anonymous.
Ono: AONIMAUSU. . .Oh!
Ono: It’s our agencies combined! I did it! (Kamiya-san works under Aoni Production, while OnoD works under Mausu Promotion)
Kamiya: What “I did it”? You don’t make any sense.
Last but not the least is the 1-Phrase Story Corner. This is an enjoyable episode, and I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did. Listen to the recorded copy of this episode above, which was kindly uploaded by dgs2703. どうもありがとう。
