    Default "Pokemon Radio Show!" Episode 021 (Nov 18th, 2012) - Misato Fukuen

    Not sure what the drama was aside from Musashi and Kojiro playing old people.

    After the Isshu motto (with the correct music finally!) Musashi picks up where she left off last week and wants ice cream. Luckily, they received a package from QQ full of freeze dried food, including ice cream! The first half of the episode is just them eating.

    When they get back they finally talked to their guest, Mijumaru's voice actress. Mijumaru comes out near the end and Musashi brings up Meloetta. Misato Fukuen requests they play "Best Wishes", so the show wraps up with that song playing in the background as the TRio remind us of the Rocket episodes airing on Kids Station next month.

    Victory!

    Has there been any mention as to when the chorus version of "Rocket Dan yo Eien ni" will be released?

    Nope.

    Also, Jeshi was saying that the drama was Musashi and Kojiro being an old couple (and apparently being kinda flirty XD) and the old man warned her not to go out because there was a demon around. She did anyway and ate it's food or something, but promised she'd bring some back. Then the old man went and saw the demon and I don't know after that. I wish these things didn't end on cliffhangers.

    Yeah, the only thing I caught about the opening skit was a demon (played by Inuyama-san, of course) and that it was supposed to be kind of a folktale.

    Nothing about the chorus version yet, but I imagine it'll be around the 15th anniversary of the first release, which was December 10th.

    I kept laughing at Kojiro saying, Kawaii!, to all the Pokemon that Fukuen-san was voicing.
    I don't even like fruit smoothies. Give me a double-tall half-caf latte with foam any day.

    Full translation was too hard so I decided to write a drama description.

    The drama is inspired by old Japanese folk tale about a man with plumpy cheeks, so don't get surprised if it gets weird.

    Roles:
    Grandma - Musashi
    Grandpa - Kojiro
    Demon - Nyasu
    Narrator - Nyasu

    Once upon a time, there was a grandpa and grandma, who were always together and lived happily. They both enjoy their breakfast and laugh a lot and Kojiro compliments grandma that her cooking is always great. Grandma is content and she notices that grandpa ate two bowls of donburi* arleady.
    She decides to clean the table and starts to complain about her plumpy cheeks. Grandpa is surprised by her complaining and tells her to stop since she had them for 84 years which is longer than they were together. Grandma agrees and she says she's going to the riverside to clean the dishes. Grandpa tells her to be careful because their neighbour told him about a demon appearing there. She jokes about feeding it with her plumpy cheeks if it appears and laughs. When she gets to the river, she notices a demon enjoying his alcohol there and she's surprised that the rumor was true. She hides, but the demon finds her. Grandma is terrified. She wants him to let her go, otherwise grandpa would be worried, but the demon is deaf to her beggings. Unfortunately, she breaks demon's precious alcohol which infuriated him even more. Now he wants to eat her. She begs him for mercy, but again, he doesn't want to listen. She promises that if he'd let her go, she'd get alcohol from home and bring him back. At first, demon doesn't want to trust her, but eventually he lets her go, under condition that she'll let him have plumps on hercheeks for deposit. She says that they're too precious to her since she had them even longer than she was with grandpa. Demon says that now that she said so, they look even tastier to him. He pops them off and grandma shouts in surprise. He tells her to go and come back fast with the alcohol if she wants them back. After she gets back home, grandpa is surprised that she doesn't have her plumps anymore. She tells him whole story and grandpa decided to go to the demon and bring him alcohol. Grandma is surprised because he doesn't have plumps, so he has no reason to go, but he ignores her and goes out, singing and laughing. Meanwhile, the demon is getting impatient because it takes grandma so long to come back and he's out of alcohol and food. He hears sounds of panting and he notices something far away. He asks "Is that a pig holding a bottle? No, the one who's holding a bottle is... an old man with a plump on his face" and the drama ends.

    Besides, QQ got Musashi ice cream especially and he called her "cute", Nyasu thought that QQ must be in love with her, but Musashi cared more about the ice cream though as she said in a disappointed tone that it's not ice cream because it's not cold. XD Ice cream > love life.

    What an odd drama. Still, lots of cuteness. Thanks for translating.

    One more reason why the radio show would be never translated to English or any other language. It's so Japanese it hurts. It just wouldn't make any sense.

    They almost make it look like they make up for all the years they couldn't add too much Japanese stuff in the anime, because it got popular on intercultural level.
