BAR “SPEAKEASY” was secretly managed in the age of prohibition. In 2020, there was such a secret bar in the city of Tokyo. “TOKYOEASY SPEAK” is open from Monday to Thursday at 1 a.m. Big guests from all over the world come and talk about talking only here, or not.
On May 19, guests were AKB48 Yuki Kashiwagi and WACK producer Junnosuke Watanabe.

◆Watanabe “Money is the price of enthusiasm”
Watanabe: People say, “I’m great to see the money side properly,” but I love money.
Kashiwagi- Eh I really want to hear the story.
Watanabe: I look at my passbook every day.
Kashiwagi I’ve never seen one before! The opposite is true.
Watanabe: Is that so? So, if you’re being charged with the wrong expenses or something, that’s all you’re worried about. On the other hand, it’s a great experience to have them do it together. It’s strange to say i’m connected to creative.
Kashiwagi: Then, do you feel like you have to think about how to make money or something, rather than have no choice but to do so?
Watanabe: That’s right. I think money is the price of a frenzy. I think the more you please the other person, the more money you get. As the number of passbooks increases little by little, i wonder if I can still work hard.
Kashiwagi: Is it like a testimony that pleased people?
Watanabe: That’s right.
◆Kashiwagi “I’m not cut out for producers”
Kashiwagi: Oh, that’s what it is. On the contrary, i’m really not interested in money. Maybe i can’t do this job if I start to care. After all, is it a difference of the sense of the side which assumes the side to be produced rather than the front stage? That’s why I thought I couldn’t produce it for the rest of my life. I’m not very interested in people.
Watanabe: Are you interested in people?
Kashiwagi: I think producers are watching every single one. I thought it was amazing.
Watanabe: But each and every one of us couldn’t see it easily. And, i think that akimoto is also so, but i mean a terrible number.
Kashiwagi: There are a lot of people, aren’t they?
Watanabe: So, there are 40 children who belong now, but even 40 of them have a limited number of children who communicate with them. After all, it is a favorite by all means.
Kashiwagi: It’s sour, isn’t it? I’m on this side, so I don’t think everyone is all.
Watanabe: Yes. Somehow, the guy who’s going to make a little phone call.
Kashiwagi- Yes, yadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa However, it is the story which is anxious very much.
Watanabe: No, I’m also worried about this. When you communicate, what are you happy about when you are told, or something that has been a little shaving. Isn’t it very important to be together and motivate you? I’m doing it from the standpoint of a producer, but if we don’t have idols or performers, we can’t do business either. After all, it is by all means.
Kashiwagi: Is it better to have a synergistic effect?
Watanabe: That’s right.
Watanabe “I feel like a big brother around here”
Watanabe: What did you say to Mr. Akimoto that you were happy to say?
I don’t see Akimoto so often. However, even if there are only those people, I am glad to hear that this was good. He’s watching me! I think i’m the most happy. And i’m not that angry.
Watanabe: Oh, that’s right.
Kashiwagi: So I’m very happy to be able to say what I thought was good.
Watanabe: I thought of one thing now, but i think it’s a place like Akimoto-san. If it’s me, it’s like a big brother around here, so i’m kind of saying, “Why don’t you look at it?”
Kashiwagi: Oh. The relationship is different.
Watanabe: That might be a little bit.
Kashiwagi: Don’t you get told by the members? It’s like, “This kid is just a boy, isn’t she?” Isn’t that right?
Watanabe: I say it quite face-to-face. “I like her the most,” he says, and she’s the type of person who has the best face.
Kashiwagi- Oh, that’s funny. Amazing right.
Watanabe: So, there might be a child who thinks he’s not going to deal with me.
Kashiwagi: I’m sure.
