Yoda:
Yeah?
“Yeah?”

世の中って不思議
The world is strange
Umezawa:
知らないことだらけ
So many things I don’t know about
Kubo:
大人になったつもり
I thought of myself as an adult

子どもかもしれない
Maybe I’m a child

Yoda:
好き嫌いなんて
Being picky? No
Umezawa:
関係ないくらい
Can’t be doing that
Kubo:
もっと経験しなきゃ
I have to experience more
I know what I want
“I know what I want”

?:
だから
And so

All:
パッションフルーツどう食べればいい?
How do I eat passion fruit?
食べたことないんだもん
I’ve never eaten one
誰も教えてくれないないない
No no no one will teach me
硬い殻が剥けないないない
I can’t can’t can’t peel the hard shell
パッションフルーツは “Where to step now”(??)
Passion fruit, “Where to step now”(??)
パッションフルーツどう食べればいい?
How do I eat passion fruit?
触ったことはないけれど
I’ve never touched one, but
興味あるのよ私だって
I’m interested in it, too
ナイフでカットすればいいの?
Do I cut it with a knife?
パッションフルーツを “Do you want it?”
Passion fruit, “Do you want it?”

Endo:
みんなは知ってたのね
So everyone already knew
Umezawa(?):
Oh no
“Oh no”
Kubo:
私だけ除け者
Only I was left out
Yoda:
What’s that?
“What’s that?”
Umezawa:
美味しいものこそこそ食べて
Secretly eating something delicious
Satisfy お気に入りだったの?
“Satisfy”, Was it your favorite?

Are you OK?
“Are you OK?”
Yoda(?), Endo(?):
誰も責めたりしない
I won’t blame anyone
Yoda(?):
Forget about it
“Forget about it“

Kubo:
こういうことってまだ
This kind of thing still
Endo:
あるんじゃない?
Happens, right?
Umezawa(?):
幸せ逃して
Missing my chance at happiness
?:
Everything’s my fault
“Everything’s my fault”

?:
だから
And so

All:
パッションフルーツ絶対に食べない
No way I’ll eat passion fruit
一生近づかないつもり
I intend to never get close to it
残念なんかじゃないないない
I don’t don’t don’t feel bad about it
後悔はしたくないないない
I don’t don’t don’t want to have regrets
パッションフルーツは I can’t stand it
Passion fruit, “I can’t stand it”
パッションフルーツ “How come people love it?”(??)
Passion fruit “How come people love it?”(??)
ねえ、本当はどういうテイスト?
Hey, how does it really taste?
一度くらい味見したって
If I try a taste just once
罰なんか当たらないわ
It’s not like I’ll be punished for it
パッションフルーツを Give me one taste
Give me one taste of passion fruit

Hey, can you give me?
“Hey, can you give me?”

Yoda:
世界を手に入れてしまったような哀れな錯覚しちゃってるの?
Are you having a pathetic delusion like you’ve conquered the world?

そう、全てを知ってるというのは恥ずかしい
That’s right, to know everything is embarrassing

そういう果実っていつまで
For that kind of fruit, until when is the

How do I eat passion fruit?
触ったことはないけれど
I’ve never touched one, but
興味あるのよ私だって
I’m interested in it, too

Do I cut it with a knife?
パッションフルーツを Do you want it?
Passion fruit, “Do you want it?”

Yoda:
知らないことばかり
So many things I don’t know
Kubo:
Wanna know everything
“Wanna know everything”
Umezawa:
そう、やっと気づいたわ
That’s right, I finally realized
Endo:
Simplest (??)
“Simplest” (??)

Short translated excerpt summary of “Thank You for the 10 Years!! Sugiyama Katsuhiko vs Akira Sunset, the Last Talk, Equally”, streamed on 2021-12-18

Here is a short translated excerpt summary of a live stream by Sugiyama Katsuhiko and Akira Sunset that was streamed on 2021-12-18:

10年間のありがとう!! 杉山勝彦 vs Akira Sunset 最後の対等トーク
Thank You for the 10 Years!! Sugiyama Katsuhiko vs Akira Sunset, the Last Talk, Equally

You can find the Youtube video for this excerpt by googling:
乃木坂の象徴だった生田絵梨花について語る杉山勝彦とAkiraSunset
or:
youtube [dot] com/watch?v=U35qDa4LPmA

Akira went to Ikuchan’s graduation concert.

Sugiyama: Although Nogi has sembatsu and under, there is no ranking like in AKB elections.
Back then, with AKB’s Flying Get and Heavy Rotation, energetic songs were popular for idols.

Sugiyama felt he can’t win against people who are good at those kinds of songs. So he thought he’d just go with his own style, which was Seifuku No mannequin and Kimi No Na Wa Kibou.

The abovementioned things, plus the image and behavior of Nogi girls, was his inspiration for coming up with those songs (Seifuku No Mannequin and Kimi No Na Wa Kibou).

Seeing the image of Ikuchan playing the piano while she and the members sing Kimi No Na Wa Kibou in a school setting, without the tension of cutthroat competition – Sugiyama feels that these kinds of things are things that didn’t exist (in the image of idols) back then.

Sugiyama says, “Nogizaka isn’t a harsh medicine or drug.”
Akira says, “Maybe because Nogizaka isn’t a harsh medicine or drug, Nogizaka has lasting power.”

Akira did the arrangement for both of Nogizaka46’s appearances on First Take (with Endo Sakura, Ikuchan, Kakki-, Kubo Shiori) and did rehearsals with them for it
Sugiyama knows Kubo is good at singing
Akira praises Ikuchan’s singing technique and perfectionism regarding artistry

(When counting the times that Ikuchan has centered, they both count Nandome No Aozora Ka as the first and Saigo No Tight Hug as the second.)

Sugiyama says Ikuchan is a symbol. She has the technique and is genius-like. The type of person to become an artist.
