[Trans] Nakayama Yuma 10,000 words interview

myojo 10000 word interview
[Myojo - 09.14]
I put some highlights about yuma's 10,000 words interview

(A mama's boy)
I was a crybaby. A huge one. Even if it was for a little while, I didn’t want to be away from my mother. I would become uneasy.

(Felt awkward with Tokyo Jrs)
I got to know (Nakajima) Kento and (Kikuchi) Fuma through introduction. Around that time, Fuma was a quiet kid and Kento was someone who had a tendency to get carried away. But, just as I thought, we were distant. I was regarded with a “Who are you?” kind of feeling by the Tokyo Jrs at first.

(His mom)
My mother was a person who respected what I wanted to do; she was cheerful and kind.  And because she knew my personality too, instead of a serious talk, she spoke to me lightheartedly. Even when I was going back and forth Tokyo every weekend, I must have gone out with a smile. It's a little melancholic.  Really lightheartedly, she sent me off with the line: "Earn some money and come back!"(laughs) Like that, I became at ease. If she had told me, "Do your best" with a serious face, I think I would have had a heavy heart. Really, I am grateful towards my parents

(His lil sister didn't want him to go to Tokyo)
The day before I moved, something that I would not forget happened. My sister who is 8 years younger than I am, was about 10 years old. "Because it is the last night, I want to sleep together with big brother." she said. Even until now, I don't know if she was sleep-talking or if she was awake, but she said to me over my shoulder, "Don't go to Tokyo." I couldn't answer her. At that moment... I cried

(Felt alone, no friends)
In all honesty, I entered with the mindset of wanting a place where I could make friends. I did not have any friends in the entertainment world; I just couldn't do it. Even in university, I couldn't really make any friends either. (laughs) I realized that. If I went with those intentions in mind, I thought, I wouldn't be able to do it.  A friend isn't something that you can "make", it happens naturally. That's why I thought of concentrating on my job for now and decisively quit

(Wanted to be closer to his fans through a live stage)
I told Johnny-san myself, “I want to appear in it” since I couldn’t do a concert. Even as NYC, I wanted to do a live, but it’s still something that has yet to be realized too. A pure stage; I want to make a stage together with the audience, I thought. And doing something that can only be done in a live, it was fun

(Being called an "elite")
In the past, when I would get told that, I wouldn’t feel very good. Especially during the time when I would thinking of wanting do activities together with the kids in Osaka. And I would always think, “I’m not an elite. Don’t give me special treatment.” I wanted to compete with everybody on the same level

(He really loved his home town, Osaka)
That’s why, in some respect, one thing that supported me was the fact that it was “for the sake of the kids in Osaka”. If I got a job, and if something good happened in Kansai, even if it’s just a little bit, maybe I can contribute too.

(Wanted to be the "elite" Nakayama yuma)
Right. The fact that I’m being called that and also the fact that I’m not yet using my true strength, is something I think about regularly. That’s why I’m going to improve on my singing, dancing and acting. When that time comes, then I can do my job with all I have. I still have ways to go. It would be bad if I feel satisfied. I'm in the middle of chasing after the silhouette that is the Nakayama Yuma who can be called an elite, in hopes of someday surpassing it.
