It's a special episode because for the first time Kazuya is the MC since Ueda-san is on vacation break, abroad. It's also a special episode because of a special guest; Lotte's captain (currently an ex player of that team), Tsuyoshi Nishioka.
But let's start from the beginning which means with the mail, from a 19 years old golf player Ishikawa Ryo who said that he is a fan of "Nobuta wo Produce" and Kazuya was grateful for that ^_^ Also a fragment of "Change Ur World" PV had been shown and the date of the release of the single.
Now it's time for Kazuya's project "home run catcher". It's a about catching a ball before it leaves the game field so the batter can't hit a home run. I must say that watching Kame training this was really amusing ^_^
The project took place at Mazda Stadium in Hiroshima and Kazuya was accompanied by two players of Hiroshima Toyo Carp; Masato Akamatsu and Sohichiro Amaya.
Hiroshima Toyo Carp players told Kazuya about factors required to catch a home run ball. And all must be done very fast.
1. Quick climbing to the fence to catch a ball...
2. Catch the ball from the defensive position and Kame had had some raw practice...
There is also a quick "fall off" into the eye point but the most important for Kame was to catch that ball ^^
Now it's time to catch a home run ball and like they say; three is a charm ^_^
Kazuya said that both players were really nice and that project was fun :)
Now a little bit with Lotte's captain, Tsuyoshi Nishioka.
From a little I could understand, Nishioka-san always had been dreaming to be the best in Japan, to become a captain of the team. Right now he likes the uniform of the Lotte where he had spent seven years and he wouldn't mind to wear it for a long time but he also wants to go to the another level, he wants to achieve more for himself, challenge himself. Nishioka-san also mentioned about him supporting Kazuya ^_^
I think that becoming a player in Minnesota Twins is another level of Nishioka-san's professional career. I wish him all the best ^_^
