[TPF+YK] Morning Musume + Fairies - Nakai Masahiro no Black Variety (2012.04.29) 720p

This video features both Morning Musume and Fairies, so it was a natural choice to have TPF's first joint project with YouseiKiss (a Fairies fansubbing group)! You can check out their website here (and they are recruiting new members for their fansub group if you're interested):

This is part one of a three part TV special for Morning Musume and Fairies (yes, we'll be doing the others too). Because this is the first appearance, there is a lot of self-introduction stuff.

Besides that, Nakai-kun has a good time poking fun at the Morning Musume senpai members (and Yuko).

There are also live performances of Fairies' Beat Generation and Morning Musume's Renai Hunter (both of which are karaoke'd, thanks to YouseiKiss' aaasalvation!).

Part two of this is a lot more interesting since it's a full 20 minutes of talk and no introduction stuff, but this first appearance still has awesome moments.

Now some notes on the video: this TV show is heavy on captions and onscreen kanji and we've left a lot of it untranslated because most of it is literally the same was what is being spoken. Translating and typesetting that would really be a waste of effort. Any new information is fully translated and typeset, as seen here:

There are 3 main types of captions in this TV show: the speech bubble like in the bottom right (things that were already spoken), red text boxes like in the top right (random notes that staff added), and speech bubbles like in the top left (the current topic of discussion). This show loves to put the captions in all corners of the screen (and sometimes in other random places) so prepare to focus your attention in many different places.

Translation, Karaoke: aaasalvation (from YouseiKiss)
Everything else: airiindeshou (from TPF)

This was certainly a difficult project to take on, but epic appearances like this are always worth it!


  1. Thank you very much~~
    I really wanted to watch this~!
    I'm still new in the momusu fandom.
    Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

  2. Thanks for the translation!

    I think that the untranslated video would be a good piece for a reading/listening comprehension exercise. :-) They captioned everything...!

    Is there a reason why they are doing this? A service for deaf people?

  3. Fairies + Momusu = My life is complete
    (actually not complete without C-ute, but still better than nothing)

  4. Thanks for subbing and sharing :) Someone subbed part 2 but I was feeling a bit incomplete since part 1 was skipped.

  5. I love you guys.
    Thank you so much for the translation.
    Really, you're amazing


    why translate yankee = bitch?
    it has different meaning. and yankee isn't bitch =='
