[Trans] Kame Camera - Vol.8 Five senses  
-Kame is the “I don’t think, I feel” school for general acknowledgement.
-Kame talks about his fetish on a magazine(LMAO *facepalm*)
-Talking about Ueda’s incident during NMP con tour (I can so see how the staff scolded him after what he did ignoring the orders LOL)
Many thanks to yararanger that betareaded answered to my English doubts and checked this translation's English <3<3 *sends love*

What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

VOL.8 五感 – Five senses

「It’s better to use the 5 senses more than the head. Not only you can choose correctly both in love and communication but also enjoy it.」


Since I prefer dark nights, the light in my room is limited to the minimum. When my friends come over they tell me “it’s dark!” (laughs), but I’m more at ease this way. During the day bathing in the sun, during the night sleeping in the dark: since it’s given also by the natural rhythm, it gives a good sensation.

I like the darkness of the night. During daytime I want to feel the sun, but the night if it’s dark gives more mystery and sense of security. A too bright night is unnatural and if my senses are assaulted too strongly, my sensitive self is tired out, maybe.

But I think about it. If I lost my eyesight and the world were completely enveloped in the darkness, how would I perceive and sense things? ---- Some time ago for a job I had my face shape taken using plaster. Eyes, ears, lips were blocked in a flash with plaster. When I was deprived of my sight, of my hearing, of my five senses, a great sense of terror welled up and breathing became difficult. For an instant I forgot how to breathe. Even though if you think about it calmly, it is possible to breathe with the nose. The instant I lost use of the five senses, I was caught by bad images. What I realized at that moment is that if you use your head too much you become afraid of doing anything and become unable to move. If I imagine too much about jet coasters and planes I can’t go on board either, and being on a stage is the same. If I think too much about the risks, I can’t do the wire-work. In order to fly coolly, it’s necessary not to think too much about it, be manfully with no regrets and feel that place.

Generally, I'll admit to being the sensitive-impulsive type. Even in choosing what to do, the feelings lead me. Romantic love is the highest point of that side. Love can’t be done with the head. Isn’t it being attracted to each other unconsciously, by the aura and the 5 senses? In my case, of course there’s the sense of sight, but even the sense of smell is very important. This because I like the scent of girl’s nape of the neck. At the point that even if I like the face, if that smell isn’t of my liking it doesn’t work! Just, the problem is that there aren’t many chances to smell it (laughs). In love the power of timing is great, but I wonder if even catching it isn’t a matter of sensation and destiny. For example, let’s put to meet someone now and even if we captivate each other for some reason we can’t date. In that case, I’ve got the impression that even if we could meet again in an absolute situation after 1 year, we wouldn’t be able to get together. Because love isn’t something so simple. You must feel what was coming to light on that exact moment between the 2 of you and grasp it without letting it escape. Communication revolves around the importance of feeling too. I’m better at interviews and play by play (broadcastings) if there is no script. I think that to continue creating using ad-libs while understanding that place is not only fun, but you also create something interesting.

When the great earthquake happened, the five senses and mind were in full operation

Just, I’m the impulsive type, but actually I’m the prudent type too. I realized it once again when that great earthquake happened. The second the earthquake happened, my body sensed the danger and at the same moment my mind was in full operation. I addressed to the people next to me at once saying “it’s better to take the valuables and go outside”, and when we got out, soon after I was making sure of the arrangement of the surrounding buildings and reflecting where was fine to stop. The “me” of such a moment is both prudent and bold! It was the same during last year’s overseas concert, when Ueda was badly injured on stage. In a situation of extreme tension with Ueda somehow retired backstage, we managed to do the show till the end just in the remaining 4 people. We were told by the staff to end the performance without mentioning Ueda’s situation, but I thought right away “That’s wrong”. Who was worried more than anyone else was surely the audience, and I felt we couldn’t let the curtain fall without addressing the subject. Following my personal instantaneous judgment, I said that Ueda got hurt on stage and was heading to the hospital, then that they didn’t have to be worried since the situation was fine. After that everyone had more relaxed faces, and I felt that the concert was more or less concluded. I felt that my judgment wasn’t wrong.

What is important in such cases is the ability to judge. And I think also the ability to take action. I want to be this “me” that can feel the urgency yet act correctly. In order to do this, together with the 5 senses and an animal instinct, I also want to improve a mind that acts well.

Kame’s fixed point of observation

While talking about the nature of the relation between “5 senses” and “love”, Kamenashi-kun said “By the way, isn’t girls’ sixth sense incredible?!” Indeed, the woman’s intuition about love is sharp. Both lies and affairs, they see through them from small actions and words. This is his sharp opinion: “That is a certain kind of romantic love dependence. Compared to men, for women the weight of love is overwhelmingly heavy, so they learn the power of observation”. Does he hate women with love dependence? “No, because men and women are different, so it’s fine. I think that’s exactly because women are so earnest in it that love relationships work”.

No I guess it would be... a bit wrong, sniffing people's neck XD I'm glad he realizes it too, his lonely hands are enough for his reputation XD;
Yannieorigamilife on July 22nd, 2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
aww ♥♥♥ every time I read these articles (that you translate so very well), I love him more <3333

Everything is akjd;faldf though the most awesome thing is probably kame admitting that he has a neck&scent fetish XDDD & the fact that he thinks with his heart/feelings not his head and I think that as an artist/performer, that's so fitting. ahh, he's just so loveable <3
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Kame sexyiside89 on July 22nd, 2011 11:27 pm (UTC)
I had a hard time translating after that line. I kept having visuals of Kame embracing a girl from behind sniffing her neck. XD;; OMG I so miss Kame acting in a drama ;A;
Btw, I find "scent fetish" a cute fetish. At least it's different from the usual "butt/boobs" that... 90% of men have LOL.
And yes, as an artist, "feeling, not thinking" is a plus for him, definitely :)

Thank you~~

So Kame is a genuine sweetheart with a limited sense of self-preservation. Love him. ♥

With his neck fetish and preference for dark lighting, no wonder Kame was so into his LMW role. XD

Thank you for translating, Isi! ♥
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Bandit!Kameiside89 on July 23rd, 2011 12:29 pm (UTC)

And OMG you have a point there about LMW :O

If I lost my eyesight and the world were completely enveloped in the darkness, how would I perceive and sense things?
He's so freaking deep and mature he makes me ashamed of myself sometimes. I had a panic attack last week when i thought i was going blind (something irritated my eye and i could barely see for hours) and my thoughts were definitely nothing like his. I knew i cursed a lot after it was over and maybe muttered a silent "thank, God" but not once did i pause to reflect how different my life would be if i were deprived of my sight.

because I like the scent of girl’s nape of the neck
Thank you for that wonderful piece of info Kame. I shall now think of you whenever i put perfume on. ROFL XDD

We were told by the staff to end the performance without mentioning Ueda’s situation, but I thought right away “That’s wrong”. ... Following my personal instantaneous judgment, I said that Ueda got hurt on stage and was heading to the hospital
Good call Kame. His judgment is definitely spot on. I feel like he respects us (the fans) because he entrusted us with that information. I know i would have hated it if they kept us in the dark about what happened. Thank you Kame ♥♥♥

Another awesome essay. Another reason to love him. XDD Thanks for translating Isi~~ ♥♥♥
your friendly neighborhood Isi: kame piecesiside89 on July 23rd, 2011 12:41 pm (UTC)
Actually I think your reaction isn't so far from Kame's reaction when his face was covered by plaster, you know. In unexpected situations, the first reaction is generally a panic attack. Kame also had the same to the point he "didn't remember how to breathe", and that thought was done time later. Then, as I said to someone, when I first read that line by Kame you quoted, I almost had tears. There was a period of my life when I had eyesight problems, so that kind of question popped up in my mind almost everyday. Even now I sometimes think "what if...?". It's a scary thought but after you've experienced something like that, you can't help yourself. :|
I don't think your reaction is bad, it's just another reaction from maybe a different character :)

And yes, even if I was LMAO-ing thinking about how Kame surely was scolded by the staff afterwards, I was happy because he decided to go against an order for the fans, for the reason you said. And definitely was the right choice, I'd have been very angry if they didn't say a thing. :(

You're welcome!

Thanks a lot, it's always interesting to be able to read Kame's thoughts. ♥
jee_minjee_min on July 23rd, 2011 02:27 am (UTC)
Hehe..Kame fetish of smelling women's nape is too Ero!
And his decision to tell the fans about Ueda's condition is right too..Because no matter what happen, fans will be the one that will worried over the condition of their idol~it is the same when Japan undergone the earthquake recently...
I was so worried about Kame whereabout. It was so relief that he was in a good condition.

Anyway, thank you for translating this :)

Grazie per la traduzione! La aspettavo :)

Il commento sul profumo della nuca delle donne non mi stupisce tanto, detto da un giapponese, visto che la nuca dovrebbe essere considerata da loro una zona abbastanza erotica. E immagino che si riferisca all'odore naturale della pelle più che a un profumo artificiale, visto che parliamo di sensazioni..

A me è capitato di trovarmi nel mezzo di un terremoto, e ho mantenuto la calma perché chi era con me era in preda al panico e mi sono sentita in *dovere* di essere calma, ma non era niente in confronto ai terremoti che sperimentano lì in Giappone, quindi Kame ha tutta la mia ammirazione per essere rimasto così lucido.

Concordo anche pienamente col fatto di Ueda e del concerto. Il ragionamento dei membri dello staff non aveva senso. Come se il pubblico potesse non accorgersi che mancava qualcuno ''=_=

Una cosa, invece, in questa intervista mi ha spezzato il cuore ç_ç io ho paura del buio e dormo con la luce accesa. Io e Kame non potremmo mai passare la notte insieme.. ''=_= .. sigh... (LOL XD)
your friendly neighborhood Isi: Kame Real Faceiside89 on July 23rd, 2011 12:47 pm (UTC)
Prego :) Ahah tempo di farla! XD Anche se le scan sbucano un paio di giorni prima, Maquia è uscito oggi XD

Sì, sono piuttosto sicura sia l'odore naturale della pelle. Il profumo "acquistato" lo senti anche da più lontano e non solo sul collo (polsi, abiti ecc). Come dicevo, la trovo una cosa carina detta da un ragazzo... o meglio, a metà tra il dolce e il sexy XD Beh la preferisco al solito fondoschiena/scollatura/gambe. Di sicuro è una cosa meno superficiale e più particolare. Quasi "animalesca"? Decisamente legata ai 5 sensi, comunque, non solo alla vista :)

Lo ammiro anche io @_@ Sono anche io il tipo che resta calmo, ma non so come avrei reagito in un terremoto come quello. E decisamente lo ammiro anche per essere andato contro gli ordini dello staff al concerto XD; Il suo giudizio è stato decisamente ottimo.
LOOOL XDD Io invece adoro quella lampada e riesco a dormire solo nel buio più completo (già un raggio di sole mi sveglio) quindi andrei perfettamente d'accordo con lui XD
(...ma poi diciamocelo, chi dormirebbe se potesse passare la notte con Kame... XDDDD)

Just, the problem is that there aren’t many chances to smell it (laughs). LOL so hard.. omg..., this kid is hopeless!!! hjzsjdd :DDDD
but such a silly romantic he is.. and overly sensitive. I can't be like him.. i'll weep and die.., but gosh he is so too precious. Thank you dear.., great theme.., and he is gradually becoming more comfortable with explaining himself, lovely~!

I'm glad MAQUIA and you who always translates his essay every month are exist in this world <3

Who was worried more than anyone else was surely the audience, and I felt we couldn’t let the curtain fall without addressing the subject

thank you for translating and sharing :)
