I've also included some screenshots with translations below! A big thanks to Grace and Mie for spending hours to actually find the video, and to my Take-chan for providing the translations! ♥
We are going to introduce an interesting rumor from a gal group in California. In the area of Los Angeles appears to be... California gals inspired by Japanese gal culture (Galifornia).
"Hello! I'm Krystina, the leader of this group!"
"In Los Angeles, there are a few groups that make gal circles and are still active. Today, our Galifornia rumor is that we want to show our love for Japan ('Japan Love')."
First, the gals introduced their club room. When you see them from behind, they look Japanese.
"This is our club room, and we call it 'Shibuya.'"
1. They call their club room Shibuya.
2. Gal goods are purchased at Little Tokyo. (Japanese doll?)
3. They consider Ageha and PopSister their bibles.
"We buy them at Little Tokyo and study Japanese gals from the magazines."
"Why did you want to become a gal?"
Val: "The first time I saw gal fashion, I was shocked. That cuteness can only be in Japan!"
It seems that their inspiration comes from... Tsubasa (Masuwaka)!
4. Tsubasa is considered to be a god or queen.
Mandie: "These are my favorite eyelashes from Tsubasa! Just looking at the eyelashes makes me happy."
Mie: "This is Tsubasa’s eye shadow and mascara. I want to be like Tsubasa, so I put them on all the time."
"Tricia, we are Tsubasa for life! Do you understand the importance of this? Your hair is not sticking out! Please fix it right now!"
5. Hair should always be sticking out moru (poofy).
"We have to always be fashionable or we will not be considered as Galifornia."
"What do you think? Doesn't it look good?"
"Wow, it really looks great!"
The gals wanted to show the Japanese something. They arrived in the middle of a downtown Los Angeles shopping mall. What's going to happen?
Val: "Are you guys ready?"
Is it what we think it is...? Para para?
"This gal is not dancing. Does she even remember it?"
Val: "Stop, stop, stop! Mie, did you practice the moves?"
Mie: "That's what I think I'm doing..."
Val: "Tsubasa might be watching this! It's a disgrace!"
Mie: "I'm just a little bit nervous!"
Val: "You are a disgrace to Galifornia!"
6. They are aware that they are on Japanese television.
Michi: "Just calm down, you two. I can't believe we are fighting over this. What if this whole segment is being aired in Japan? I can’t believe this."
"We are trying to impress Tsubasa, and our leader feels pressure because of that. Our leader probably loves gal more than any of us. She's just really intense when it comes to leading the group."
One hour later... "Okay! We got to our favorite spot! Yoshigyu! We heard that Tsubasa eats here too."
7. After an argument, they go to Yoshinoya. Yoshinoya is very popular in Los Angeles.
8. Beef bowl with extra juice is the best!
Even in the receipt, it says "extra juice." In Los Angeles, you can experience the taste of Japan. After putting a lot of assorted pepper... "Itadakimasu!"
Val: "After eating a beef bowl, I feel that our argument was stupid, Mie. I'm sorry I said harsh things to you."
Mie: "It's okay. Let's work on the para para so we can perfect it together." Val: "We need to study more on the Japanese gal culture so we can show good things to Tsubasa!"
The staff says, "Um... Sorry to burst your bubble, but there are only a few Japanese gal circles in Japan, and they're not that popular."
"Did you like our rumor? Please judge!"
"It made me happy to know that Japan is being accepted by many."
"I know! All you need to put is a host club near Yoshinoya, and it's completely Japan."
"I really want to bring them to Shibuya."
"Oh my gosh, that's a brilliant idea!"
"What if we bring them to Shibuya and out of nowhere, Tsubasa runs in to see them?"
"Wow, sounds like so much fun! I would love to see that."
Bonus! Here's a photo of us with the guys from NTV. Since we pretty much spent the whole day together, it was kinda sad to part ways with them!
Another bonus! ♥ Michi compiled a video of her own to show what really happened behind the scenes. xD
And just to clear any misunderstandings...
1. The show portrayed us as "Galifornia," but our gal circle is Diamond! Val even said it at the beginning, but her voice was dubbed.
2. Val isn't the leader (nobody is), and she's not scary at all in real life. xD
3. Mandie isn't a part of Diamond, but she was our very special guest. ^__^ ♥
4. Most of us don't actually dance para para.
5. The fight between Mie and Val was staged.
6. That was our first time eating Yoshinoya.
So all in all, it wasn't the most accurate representation of us, but we still had a lot of fun! :3 Also, Tsubasa tweeted about us! She says she wants to meet one day! *__* ♥
