    • The wallets they use - apparently Tegoshi’s wallet is some bag-like thing that the other two described as something people going on adventures would use and that it’s really heavy. They also discussed how they arrange their notes
      They went through everyone’s wallets, including Taro-chan’s (the writer). Realising Tegoshi doesn’t keep track of the amount of cash he has in his wallet, Massu asked him to leave his wallet out. (T: You’re going to take my money then! M: I didn’t, and I wouldn’t, but I really don’t like how Tegoshi thinks I will do that. T: I’m just going to keep my wallet in my bag. M: I wish you would never doubt me.)

    • Apparently Nakamaru (KAT-TUN) said he’d want to watch their own concert once someday, and Kame was like, sure, Massu would take your place. What does Massu think about this? He understands the feeling of wanting to watch their own concert as he feels the same way, but having to do beatbox in place of Nakamaru...nope. It’d be fun to do group shuffles sometime though

    • Someone who bought 50 new pens just for the “STORY” project - does Massu also start from “looking the role” when he starts something new? He said yes, because that’s what he did for his role for “Voice”. On something he bought to start but never started - skateboard

    • ♪ Jump Around ♪

    • Listener Letter - what would Tegoshi be if he weren’t an idol? Without the knowledge he gained from being in Johnny’s. A soccer coach, or something with J-league. If he had the knowledge he has now he’d be an business owner/manager.

    • Listener Letter -  A listener was asked out for the first time recently and she thinks he’s wonderful but isn’t sure how to transition from friends to a relationship, and is also afraid of what would happen if she found someone more important to her than Kei-chan has been to her. They encouraged her to go for it, and to go to NEWS concerts together.

    • Listener Letter - A listener got a customer facing job, but they’re shy and so they got a job at a restaurant to get better at customer conversations. She has a hard time joining in on conversations, and they told her there’s no reason to force it, just be open to others.

    • A listener who met her husband to be at “Tegomass no Seishun” concert when they happened to sit next to each other. What NEWS/Tegomass song would they recommend to play at their wedding ceremony?
      Tegoshi and Sakura tried to figure out what started the conversation did they both go alone or with a friend each or… (M: STOP THAT that’s not the point we want to talk about the two of them!!!)
      They said “Hanamuke”, Massu’s cover of “Zutto issho sa”, maybe a recording of this part of this radio episode, NOT Tegoshi’s solos (T: My solos are probably all inappropriate, like “ike~~~” where do you want them to go to??)
      They continued on the topic for quite a while more including drifting off slightly to whether the lyrics of “Tsuki no Tomodachi” were good or not

    • One-line actors
      T: “Otsukaresama for school today” as if he’s a cicada
      M: “Is that true?” as if he’s eating something sour
      They both did really well, but apparently Massu’s expression was really funny (T: Must be because he’s in his actor mode now) so Sakura gave this to him

    • M: “It’ll all work out somehow, do your best!” while extremely sleepy
      T: “Bill please!” while having a stomachache
      They were both terrible this time and Sakura gave it to Tegoshi as he said his line properly

    • They picked a situation for Sakura to read the address details: As if she’s at the train platform sending her kid off to Tokyo

    • “Voice” - the drama heading towards the end, having to film under the hot weather, and being happy about getting to be involved in the drama

    • The kind of clothes he likes girls to wear - riders jacket + dress, or hoodies. He doesn’t like the super frilly/girly clothes, and prefers slightly boyish fashion

    • Whether to buy a new wallet based on design on function - absolutely design, but if it’s lacking on function he wouldn’t want to use it much so he recommends taking time to find one that has both design and function

    • What the listener can do to be better liked by the sempai they like. It’s hard to say since it’s not like there’s a list of things to tick off, and it’s a build up of things and the way they interact over time

    • If he starts buttoning his shirts from the top or bottom - he starts somewhere in the middle and the top button usually goes last

    • ♪ Endless Summer ♪

    • Brain Master - what do rugby players take care to do when they’re holding beer glasses? He couldn’t get the answer and asked for it - to hold the glass with their left hand, so they won’t have to offer a cold hand to someone from the opponent team when shaking hands
