YuNi occasionally invites other Virtual Youtubers to join her. Episode 8: Yuni-yomi Ohamonii~ Welcome to another episode of YuNi no All Night Nippon i Following from last week, YuNi is once again by herself in the studio. A question from a fan The show starts out with a question from a fan asking YuNi if she likes to watch any TV dramas. YuNi likes "The Confidence Man JP" (2018), about a beautiful con woman called Darko and her two male associates who target corrupt businessmen and yakuza bosses, outsmarting them in various ways. YuNi is a fan of Masami Nagasawa, who plays Darko. Can you guess why? YuNi-yomi YuNi-yomi (YuNi詠み): In YuNi-yomi, YuNi chooses a song whose lyrics touched her and introduces those lyrics to her listeners. YuNi chose "ego-izm" by one of her favorite musical artists, la la larks, a song which anime fans may recognize as one of the two ending themes of the 2004 anime series "M3: The Dark Metal." Japanese 正しさ無視した自分ルール 作り上げたずるさを知る “白と黒” “裏表” を問いかけ 自信を疑え Pronunciation Tadashisa mushi shita jibun rūru Tsukuriageta zurusa wo shiru Shiro to kuro omote to ura wo toikake jishin wo utagae English (translation ours) Personal rules which ignore justice, You'll learn the unfairness the world has constructed Question "white and black", "inside and out," doubt your confidence YuNi really likes the line: "Question 'white and black', 'inside and out', doubt your confidence." The first time YuNi heard the song, this line really struck her. There are many songs in the world which seek to encourage and uplift you, telling you to be confident in yourself, but not too many which ask you to question your self-confidence. Of course, YuNi likes encouraging songs too, but she also enjoys songs which asks questions about who we really are, so she was deeply impressed by this line. This week's nihongo tip Japanese: 毎日 English transliteration: mainichi Meaning: Every day (adverb) Japanese: ego-izmという曲が本当に一番好きで、もう、本当ね、今でもね、ほぼほぼ毎日聴いていますね Pronunciation: ego-izm to iu kyoku ga hontō ni suki de, mō, hontō ne, ima de mo ne, hobohobo mainichi kīte imasu ne Meaning: I really like the song called "ego-izm" and ... I really ... even now, I listen to it almost every day. You can use the adverb mainichi in all kinds of situations. You can put it at the beginning of a sentence or just before the verb. Here are a some more examples: Example 1: 毎日YuNiの曲を聴いています。 Mainichi YuNi no kyoku wo kīte imasu "(I) listen to YuNi's songs every day." Example 2: YuNiは梅ハイボールを毎日飲みません。 YuNi wa ume haibōru wo mainichi nomimasen "YuNi doesn't drink an ume highball every day." (That's a reference to Episode 6, in case you're wondering) If you'd like to listen to the show, please go to the official page on All Night Nippon i's website: Episode 8 (7/23): Yuni-yomi Special message from YuNi YuNi personally introduced Japanese Voices on her official Twitter account!
