Tokunaga Chinami X Sugaya Risako
---The 2 of you have a reputation of being a pair of close friends, but at the same time, it seems that you're known as 'a clamorous pair' (laughs). Are you always together?
Tokunaga: If I had to say, generally, when we're travelling and staying at hotels, we stick together (laughs). It's scary to stay alone, we'd stay over in each other's rooms.
Sugaya: We did 'cup ramen gatherings'.
Tokunaga: That's right! The 2 of us like ramen, so after concerts, when we're travelling, we'd pick out our favourite cup ramens at the store and eat them. Then, we'd compete to see whose cup ramen was more delicious (laughs).
Sugaya: We'd get even more excited as it got later into the night, messing around.
Tokunaga: This year, I welcomed in the New Year together with Risako. We were staying over at a hotel for work, and they had prepared a room for each of us, but we got to talking, and were like, 'Wouldn't it be sad to spend the New Year alone?', Risako came to my room, and we did the countdown together. It got pretty roused up after that.
--- Risako-chan, from your perspective, what's an unexpected side [of Chinami]?
Sugaya: It may seem that she does as she pleases, is a bit of a fool, and you'd have no idea what she's thinking about, but she actually thinks about those around her more than anyone else. And she gives a right and proper tsukkomi to Momo.
Tokunaga: It's really tiring though (laughs).
Sugaya: If we're not talking about studies, she's unexpectedly smart. She's quick-witted, warm person.
