Congratulations to 55th anniversary. Splendid! Speaking of 55 years, TV Guide-san began publication over 20 years before I was born, right? Thinking about this, TV Guide-san is great. Though it’s straight heading 60th anniversary… it’ll be five years later (giggle). Thus far in TV Guide-san, we were allowed to do various projects. What do I want to do in the future? No no, no such thing. Because, TV Guide-san has things it wants to do. We don’t have such things (desire to do project) (giggle).
Recently I am busy, so I barely watch TV. Even I watch TV it’s pretty much news programme. When I was small too I almost didn’t watch variety programmes. And then when I was in primary and junior high school, I watched a lot live broadcast of baseball games. Of course, games of Giants. Therefore it might be bit different from watching TV with joy. When Giants won I was happy, when they lost I felt regretful. Even during live broadcast of baseball games, during the time for Koshien, because I was mostly outside playing baseball I didn’t watch it. Therefore when I was small the star I admired was professional baseball players. I indeed like Hara (Tatsunori)-san most. Hara-san who worked as the fourth player in the batting order when he was in the games. I was happy when Hara-san was the batter.
To me, TV has an image of “A thing that anyone can watch when he likes to”. And then because I act too, it is also “a thing that I can be seen”.
--- Playback Ninomiya Kazunari that time! ~ Verification of the popular phrase in the past ~
“I like the phrase ‘It must be fine’. When stepping forward for a new thing, everyone would be anxious. Though I barely have such anxiety. My feeling is not fluctuating. I’m always fine. In the past I was a very anxious person though, I experienced various things I became at ease.” - 2006.6.2 issue
“I’m always fine” now such way of thinking still doesn’t change. I don’t have fluctuating feeling, because I don’t have over-expectation myself. But, if asked about how to normally think in this way, I have no idea, honestly. Though it sounds dry at first, this is something about feeling. It’s not something that can be explained by words, and the way to do this depends on different people isn’t it.
