I did my best, however, to convey the atmosphere and context of the conversations in this radio show.
This is the 23rd episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~. This is easily one of my most favourite episodes in this radio show ever! I just love it! It’s absolutely hilarious!
｡ﾟ(TヮT)ﾟ｡ This episode begins with the hosts’ usual intro. It’s so cool when Kamiya-san introduces himself in seiyuu mode. It’s so different from his normal cutesy voice.
Then Kamiya-san asks OnoD if he went somewhere for vacation, but OnoD tells him that he had work. Then he begins to tell Kamiya-san that he wants to see the Ushiku Daibutsu (Ushiku Buddha / 牛久大仏). Apparently, OnoD loves buddha statues.
Ono: There is this Buddha statue that I want to see in Ushiku.
Ono: It’s 120 meters high.
Kamiya: Yes, there is.
Ono: There is, right?
Kamiya: Why don’t. . .
Ono: I really want to see it.
Kamiya: Go and see it, then.
Ono: Go see it. . .But it’s a little too far.
Kamiya: But it only takes about 1 and half hour by car.
Ono: It’s really one of the things that I really want to see. It’s like one of the biggest Buddha statues in the world.
Ono: I’m going to check.
Kamiya: It’s like a building.
Ono: It seems you can enter inside the statue.
Kamiya: Yes, you can do that.
Ono: Ahaha- Oh? Have you seen it before?
Kamiya: Well, that’s because Ushiku is my childhood home.
Ono: (long pause) Your childhome home?!
Kamiya: Yeah. I don’t go (to the Buddha statue). I don’t quite understand why people. . . .
Ono: Why are drawing pictures?
Kamiya: Why people would go and see what’s inside.
Ono: Ah, yes, yes.
Kamiya: I think that’s scary.
Ono: I’m the only one who knows what you’re drawing. Scary?
Kamiya: Because of it’s big size.
Ono: For that reason only?
Kamiya: Yeah. I know a shortcut to it, but I really don’t know it’s size. It’s like a building.
Ono: As expected.
Kamiya: Yeah. You should go. Even if you take pictures, you won’t really know its size.
Ono: Yes. The scale. . .
Kamiya: I don’t know its scale.
Ono: Well then, let’s go together, Kamiya-san.
Kamiya: Yeah, yeah. I’ll return there evetually to visit our family grave.
Ono: So it’s like that, huh? Then let’s go inside the statue together.
Kamiya: For what reason?
