[Trans] WINK-UP 2011.06 - Nakamaru Yuuichi's corner  
I was reading some interviews and I found a cute episode of Maru's corner~ So I ended up translating it XD

This corner works this way: he generally draws a “find the mistake” play, but readers give idea/requests to Maru and he draws it. Question usually are inventing and then drawing cartoon characters following the girl’s theme, but it may be drawing the members into characters, etc.
This time the requests are 2, one is drawing the members as *something* and the second one drawing some spring characters as cartoons.

WINK UP 2011.06
Yuuichi's "Please give the idea to me”
(as the English subtitle itself says)


This time I didn’t paint a “find the mistake”. I wanted to answer to some requests so I draw 2 cartoon characters’ themes. There were plenty of requests for [drawing] the members, so I chose the dog races one, but I didn’t draw them skillfully. Members also commented a lot, but this time I tried to persist with my ideas.
Then, I also answered to a spring taste request.

REQUEST 1: I always look forward to this WU’s corner. My drawing request is: drawing some cartoon characters of different dog races. I like Nakamaru-kun’s drawing touch, I really would like to see this one. I have a Chihuahua at home so I’d be glad if there was a Chihuahua. (Penname: none)


I tried to draw and answer to the request “draw the members as dog characters”. Probably the image of KAT-TUN keeping dogs is quite widespread. I have received such a request many times. For this reason I challenged it today. There were many opinions from the members saying that "*different race* is good", but this time I ignored their opinions and drew them as I thought (laughs)


Kamechs: It doesn’t eat anything but good dog food. An innate high-level dog.
Nakamaru’s comment: Isn’t Kame a bit Dachshund-like? And isn’t he keeping a Dachshund? Then I made him a Dachshund. Also this dog’s nature is similar to Kame’s. He has simply become a dog (laughs)

Collinosuke: it sleeps a lot and has a warm behavior. Always sleepy.
Nakamaru’s comment: I don’t know its real behavior, but at first glance it looks a quiet dog, so I thought Taguchi as a Collie. It’s my mental image, so I don’t know if it’s fitting.

It eats meat and doesn’t eat vegetables. Intimidates other dogs.
Nakamaru’s comment: I thought Koki as a Doberman. How to say, I thought that their intimidating characters were similar. [This Koki’s portrait] was well received by Ueda too.

Beagleyuichi: A conservative.
Nakamaru’s Comment: At first I thought of drawing another kind of dog race, but I couldn’t draw it decently so I stopped. Beagleyuichi is a conservative character, so it’s a character similar to me.

Tatsuyatian: It likes to move and is restless. A character that likes running. Friendly.
Nakamaru’s comment: You know, Ueda was the most difficult! Actually I wanted to draw that one… the small size fluffy dog that looks like a stuffed toy… what’s its name? That one that’s very popular now… ah! Toy poodle! Yes, I drew him as a toy poodle but it wasn’t a good drawing so I made him a Dalmatian.

*I wanted to translate only the dog part, but the rest was short so I completed it.

The following one, Maru just created some cartoon characters, no connection with the members (I think)*

REQUEST 2: In spring cherry blossoms bloom, many insects come out, it has a warm image, so I’d like you do draw something using “spring” as theme. (Penname: none)

I suppose that when this number is on sale the Hanami season will be already finished, but during this interview cherry blossoms are exactly in full blossom, so I answered to this request. Kame asked me to let him think about one character name, but it didn’t change so much from the one I chose, so I rejected it (laughs)


(clockwise order)

When the best bloom season arrives, everyone looks for the sakura tree. Hibernant (animals) or sleeping people exit outside.
HACCHII (sounds like “bee”): It moves a lot. It thinks a lot about his companions and it’s trusted by people.
TSUGURU AND TSUKUMOCCHAN: They were waiting for the spring. They’re really happy for the long-awaited spring that has arrived. Their behavior is kind. They’re an “indoor” type, so while it’s cold they hide and play games.
ASUKA AND SAYAKA (the 2 flowers): They like girls talk very much. They only talk about Make-up, nails, sweets.
JUSTINE/JUSTIN (the sexless ladybug LOL): It’s right in the middle of enjoying this spring. It’s warm so it becomes sleepy. Following the weather, it feels happy.

LMAO at KT dog version. I loved the explanations Maru gave also XD I can somehow feel Maru love towards his bandmates ^o^'''
I'd be curious to know which character Kame named and why Maru refused it if it was similar to the one he chose XD
Justine is absolutely random XDDD

Very cute! Thanks for sharing this article!

As to Koki as a Doberman, LOL! I was reminded of a Kokame fic, "Go Fetch". :-)

While the Dalmatian and Beagle... Did Maru see this Red Bull commercial? {chuckle}

Maru's drawing is adorable <3 Thank you very much for the translation *0* I could only read the names of the doggies but I so wanted to read the comments ^^ I think Taguchi with long hair looks a lot like a Collie so I agree with Maru's choice XD Awww Toy poodle Tat-chan would've been really cute ♥ And the spring cartoon characters are really cute too <3 but what's with the name Justine? o_O.... hahahaha Maru is so lovely ♥ I LOL-ed with Maru rejecting Kame's name choice XD

IKR?! First they troll maru saying his dog choices aren't good or whatever they told him, then Maru takes revenge refusing their suggestions. Esp Kame or so it seems. So much NaKame S-love ♥ XD

Thank you for translating this!
Maru's drawings are always amusing, but the KT dogs and their names are the best XD And 'Justine' is like the odd one out lol

"Also this dog’s nature is similar to Kame’s. He has simply become a dog (laughs)" --> XDDDDDD, and +1 trillion for the diva-ness description :D

"Beagleyuichi is a conservative character, so it’s a character similar to me." --> Sure, Maru, sure XD

Tsuguru and Tsukumocchan look like...nevermind....

Hmmm, does Koki have a similar corner? He draws really well :)
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Happy!Nakameiside89 on July 1st, 2011 08:14 am (UTC)
No, the drawing corner is just Maru's. But I love that the members sometimes cooperate with ideas (like Maru said LOL).
Or for example, this is from 2011.07 issue. Kame tried to do the "find the differences" game too, and Maru was behind him looking at what he's doing. Cho cute~ member ai moment~ XD

Ladybug's explanation sounds 'Taguchi like'. I mean, because of the 'sleepy' xDD just like Collinosuke (and the sexless, yes, maybe too LOL)

hahah every explanation was so cute! <3
I do believe Namakaru's knowledges about his colleagues xD
Thank you so much for sharing! you made my day <3
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Cool!Kokiiside89 on July 1st, 2011 08:04 am (UTC)
I wrote sexless because I still can't decide if it's Justin or Justine XDDD
Your icon is so fitting the doggie theme!! XDD
