They appeared in several shows to promote Siren. Just thought of sharing some screencaps here.
Besides the FujiTV’s food show which was shown previously here, they were also in Viking!, Nepurigu Quiz show and Mezamashi morning news.
Let’s begin with NEPURIGU Quiz Show. I’m not really sure of the format for this since this is actually the first time I watch it, only because Siren team was invited. But basically, there are two groups – Drama Team VS Neptune Team. The winning team will get 100 thousand yen as prize. So a lot of money is at stake here.
Siren Team comprises of Tori, Fumino, Kitayama and both comedians Ken Horiuchi and Taizo Harada.
DON’T ASK WHY THE GUY AT THE BACK WORE NOTHING BUT AN UNDERWEAR -_-;;
Apparently both Tori and Fumino confessed that they’re not really that smart lol
Horiuchi then said that he felt disappointed despite the fact that they look like they’re good in studying 😄
Then both Kitayama and Harada decided to do something mischievous. Watch them trying to hide the guy’s underwear and then exposing it LMAO
It came out of nowhere so Fumino burst into laughter but she did it anyway.
This is just an example of the CM poster. There are video CMs too which can be found easily on youtube.
The first segment is basically very straightforward. It’s only whether you choose Up or Down.
From 2004 onwards, have the housewives in Japan increased or decreased?
How about the usage of mineral water?
Harada was the only one who got it wrong.
The number of women smoking in Japan?
Again, Harada’s the only different from the others. He thought the number of women smoking has increased because of increasing working women and the stress.
Horiuchi blamed him and Harada got mad so he went over to fight him. Tori and Kitayama tried to pull Harada back while Fumino was like “I’m not getting involved with this boy fight” haha (just my own assumption)
So after things settled down, they continued.
The number of cinemas?
The number of primary school kids having tooth decay.
Their poses are cute ~
Tori got it wrong! He put Up haha
Apparently Horiuchi is the only one who gets every question correct. He said that ever since he joined this show, he had never gotten a wrong answer for this segment. That’s pretty amazing.
Second segment – I’m not sure how this really works but looks like they need to write kanji for the clues in katakana given.
Tori was nervous and Fumino was like trying to encourage him.
She basically breezed through quite a lot of the questions until she reached a tough one.
Name all the 10 types of mushroom.
Speaking of food, Horiuchi commented that Fumino’s good in cooking. But then Fumino said she doesn’t cook western food at all. Guess she’s more of the Japanese traditional cuisine girl. Her instagram is full of home-cooked meals by the way.
They managed to push through to the final segment. If they win this with perfect score, they’ll win 100 thousand yen.
They were asked to select a person who will be given the responsibility to choose the answer for the group if they ever come upon a difficult choice.
Obviously, this role should be given to Tori since he’s the lead of Siren but he was being humble and judging from his nervousness previously, he said he wanted Fumino to take charge since she has higher number of correct reply percentage.
However the members encouraged him to take lead. So he agreed. Don’t give up Tori!
So this how the game works. They need to choose one side where the answer is and gather at that side. Because if they chose correctly, the box thingy they’re riding on will slide that way. If they choose wrongly they will stumble to the opposite side.
I find this so sweet. Actually, the Japanese fans noticed this too and pointed it out.
Tori was seen offering his arm to support Fumino if they ever got the wrong answer coz then they’ll sway to the other side.
Tori’s such a gentleman XDD
Till the last question, they were contemplating and so Tori needed to make the big decision.
Which is more in Japan – dam or windmill?
He chose DAM!
He was really KAKKOII when he shouted DAMU lol seriously!
TEAM SIREN WON
Kitayama mentioned how Tori was really kakkoi when he shouted Dam!
That was a perfect win. At first Tori messed up the first segment and was kind nervous but in the end, he pulled the team through! Team Siren was great. Their interaction with each other and they’re so supportive of their members. Nice teamwork.
Okay let’s move on to another show.
Basically they go to different shops and see if the cooks can finish preparing the meals within 3 minutes. I’m not sure what’s the purpose of the show really lol but it’s quite interesting to see how fast they can cook the food and whatnot.
I can’t find better quality of this show so forgive the blurry screencaps.
In the beginning, the hosts asked both of them how or what do they talk about on the location?
Tori was like “Hmm what do we talk about? What do you think…?”
Fumino also wondered together with him as to how their working relationship is like
In the end when they couldn’t give a proper answer, the hosts were like
“Maybe you guys don’t talk much, do you?”
So the first shop they went to will prepare omelet rice. Tori said he and his sisters used to cook in rotation in their house so he had experience cooking omelet rice too.
He mentioned when he cooked omelet rice in their house, the egg was the crucial part. It depends on his sisters’ mood because if the egg was too hard, they’d complain lolz
The usual HOT! reaction haha
Tori picked up leftover rice that was stuck on his arm and ate it LOL
The hosts mentioned a rumor that Tori likes to be alone. So Tori explained that he’s the type that doesn’t have the courage to invite people out. Then the host said the other guy is also the same. When he goes to work elsewhere, he’d stay in the hotel room alone. Then Fumino exclaimed that she’s the same too. She gave an example that she would buy food at the convenient store and go back to her room and eat. Tori adds that he’d watch DVD in his room too.
Then the host joked that all 3 of them should go for a trip one day and everyone stays in their own room do their own thing lol
They were then asked to draw impressions on cows.
Tori’s drawing. Quite good!
But what impressed me more was Fumino’s lol
She said she was contemplating on how to draw cows then she saw one of the host’s side facial structure and got an idea.
She’s pretty good in drawing.
They were asked how do they spend their day-offs.
Tori said he often visits Tsutaya at Shibuya. He likes the top floor where there’s a manga corner. Fumino’s reply cracked me up. She said, “At home.” So the hosts were like “Don’t you go anywhere though?” So she said if she has planned for a trip then she’ll go, for example to Hokkaido alone.
Next is just a short Mezamashi segment.
The hosts got some interesting bits from the staffs so they’re going to talk about them.
First, Tori actually goes to the studio without bringing a bag, basically empty handed.
I was thinking…why not a proper bag lolz
Then he said at one point, people thought the vinyl bag was used to throw rubbish and he found rubbish inside lmao
Time for a proper bag, Tori.
Fumino has started kickboxing after training for judo in the drama. Also, the staffs mentioned that despite being an actress, she comes to the studio wearing rather rough clothings.
When asked to comment on it, Tori said yes, it was pretty rough and loose kind of clothings but he said isn’t it okay? Afterall, they’re going to change straight away into their character clothes anyway haha…true that. It’s called practicality 😄
Then they mentioned about the parka they received during their birthday celebrations from the staffs. Tori said when Fumino said she’ll wear it, he was embarrassed about it. Fumino then said she’s appreciating the staffs’ thought haha
That’s all! Whew…that took quite a while to sum up.
