English Translation

Title: Autumn Event Personality: Shige Shōgo
In my case, I gained 4 kilos during the summer, so this autumn is one for appetite. Ah, that’s not right, sorry. [It should have been] one for sports. There might be some people that think we should move our bodies a little. Please tell us what you would like to begin this autumn via message. Our fax number is 62-0084 62-0884. Our Email address is 884@shimabara.fm, that’s 884@shimabara.fm. We’ll be waiting here. Well, I have been chubby originally,oh,not originally*2. Anyway, I’ve been chubby. Then, when it became the second half of summer, I was like “what?” When I wore socks, I started feeling that wearing socks was more difficult than before. So…so this did me good, and I’m feeling like I must work to drop weight little by little.

Notes: Japanese Grammar and Vocabulary

1. 「夏太なつぶとり」, 「食欲しょくよくあき」, and 「スポーツのあき」 are all Japanese idioms. Japanese people like to connect something with the seasons. For example, 「スポーツのあき」 has the connotation that in autumn the temperature becomes comfortable and it motivates people to play sports.

2. Concerning the sentence 「もとから丸々まるまるもとからってことはないですけどね」, this is a joke which he often uses. You can think of it like this; he says 「もとから丸々まるまる」 but corrects himself in the latter sentence. Incidentally, he was chubby originally.
