This week is an "The End of Evangelion" special on Geruge.
(About 45 to 50 minutes of the first 90 minutes of the radio show
were devoted to Evangelion and the guests.)
- Iwao Junko (岩男潤子)
Mr. Ohtsuki [producer of Evangelion]
- Zankoku na Tenshi no Teeze (Takahashi Yoko)
Te no Hira no Uchuu (Iwao Junko)
- Evangelion Story (Horaki Hikari/Iwao Junko)
They played Zankoku na Tenshi no Teeze by Takahashi Yoko.
The first guest was Iwao Junko, who was wearing a black outfit.
She said she got tanned a little, as she had a jacket shooting for her CD.
Junko played the quiz game with a listener, and they got 9 questions correct.
[If they get 10 questions correct, the guest and listener both
get 100,000 yen.]
Junko said that if she got 100,000 yen, she would like to travel.
She would like to go back to Kyuushuu [Junko is from Kyuushuu],
and visit places that she had never been to.
Then they played Te no Hira no Uchuu by Iwao Junko,
which was a song to Key the Metal Idol.
Iwao Junko answered a question..
Q: When you were in junior high, were you in love?
Junko: Yes. I liked a cool guy on the track team.
Q: Did you confess to him?
Junko: Yes, on Valentine's Day. I waited for him at the bus stop,
and gave him the chocolate. But he said that there was a girl he liked..
Then they ran out of time.
The "Evangelion Story" was by Horaki Hikari (Iwao Junko).
Hikari talked about herself and the students in her class
(Rei, Asuka, Shinji, Kensuke, Touji).
This monologue was about 4 minutes long.
