translations for 2006/10 issue popolo ! 
i'll translate the part where the five of them were all talking together. I might post up the solo interviews later if anyone's interested.

"The secrets that members only know of....Arashi's Concert Secret Talk x5"
*the members say they love concerts. Surely, the five look very happy during the concert, but sometimes they are laughing or giggling for no reason...or mouthing words we can't really hear....what was happening to them?!"

*Although they got the meals they yearned for......*
sakurai: at hokkaido, we ate jingiskhan right ? (jingiskhan = lamb stew)
aiba: yeah yeah yeah! it was so good!
matsumoto: although we ate is at a fairly late time (lol)
sakurai: i think the staff were just going to order room service at the hotel first....but when we got their, we decided we wanted to eat something "hokkaido-ish" so we started to sing the song "jin-jin-jingiskhan~" during the whole concert rehersal (lol) so the staff will notice (lol) but by the time the rehersal was over, it was part midnight so the five of us were like...."maybe not..." (lol)
ninomiya: we were the ones who were singing, so there wasn't a reason not to go (lol)
sakurai: no one said anything and said "oishii ne (delicious)!"......but don't you think room service was okay ? (lol)
ninomiya: true (lol) to show that, everyone left the restaurant as soon as they finished eating (lol)
aiba: but it was really good.
sakurai: but you know that restaurant, i think it was closed before we got there (lol)
ohno: they opend the place just for us ?! no wonder the chef was so low tension (lol)
aiba: during hiroshima concert we ate hiroshima okonomiyaki and played soccer game remember ? 
matsumoto: when you guys were playing video games, i was outside with the jr.'s playing real soccer. i was just kicking the ball to exercise, then the jr.'s joined in.
sakurai: oh really ? i heard that you were "kicking around" the jr.'s later on (lol)
aiba: they were saying that you mistaken them instead of the ball (lol) .....matsumoto-kun is really scary ! (lol)
matsumoto: i will never do such a thing ! (lol)
ohno: i was batteling with sho-kun. but im not going to do it anymore. he improved so much, he beat the heck out of me.
sakurai: well, i have a game master called ninomiya-san behind me. during the traveling time i was playing against him, and gradually i got better. and i told him that i beat ohno-kun, then he told me "good job" (lol)
ninomiya: well you're just a beginner for me tho.
ohno: there was a long time since we did a concert at yokohama arena ! it brought back old memories!
aiba: even during the 3concert a day period, we were so high we didn't really feel tired. although we dropped dead at the train back home. (lol)
sakurai: one thing i noticed is that there were a group of russian fans at the first row during yokohama. i noticed there were a bunch of caucasian ladies at the front and i read their sign saying......
ninomiya: "I LOVE RUSSIA" (lol)
all: laugh
ninomiya: oh, and the "love" was a love heart (lol)
aiba: we never really discussed it during the concert. a few hours before we were talking about it saying "you notied too?" (lol) normally wouldn't you have a sign saying "I LOVE JAPAN" ? (lol)
ninomiya: or they can be slightly nicer and say "I LOVE ARASHI" (lol)
sakurai: if they wanted to say something about themselves...it will be "I AM RUSSIA".....but we can't do a thing even they told us they love russia (lol)
matsumoto: they probably wanted to say that they are a bigger fan of Russia more than us (lol)
ninomiya: nahhh, impossible! i think there was a guy among the jr.'s who were back dancing for us called, "RUSSIA" (lol)

*Sakurai didn't know what to do with the crying fan...*
ninomiya: oh yeah, and i remember this girl with sho-kun's uchiwa started crying the moment we got on stage.
matsumoto: i was so surprised ! (lol) because that girl was dancing while she was crying (lol) but then she couldn't keep on dancing because she was crying so much (lol)
sakurai: i did my best, but she won't stop crying so i felt like i was doing something wrong.....
ohno: i always feel thankful to the fans.
sakurai: you know, its apparent now we talk like this. us five are mostly looking at the same spot during the concert ! (lol)
ninomiya: yeah really. 
sakurai: does it mean that we get along well ? (lol)
aiba: and you guys (fans) might not know, but we can see very clearly from the stage you know.
sakurai: so you guys have to be fancy when you're coming to the concert !
matsumoto: yeap, if you are coming to both of the concert on the same day, you have to go home after the first one to change clothes (lol)

*Ohno's mumbling on stage?*
matsumoto: my ear monitor for the concert is on the same channel with ohno-san, so i can hear him all the time, but most times he's saying weird stuff (lol) For example, during the song "gorimuchu", theres a line called "honjitsu wa seitennari" (today its going to be sunny!), and after he sings that line, he mumbles "its going to shine!" (lol) which has nothing to do with the song (lol)
all: laugh
ohno: oh.....you can hear that ?
all: laugh again
ninomiya: if you didn't know that he (matsumoto) could hear it, who were you saying it too ?! (lol)
ohno: well ~ i just want to say it....like during the song "kansha kangeki ame arashi", "smile again ~ arigatoo" then i say "ARASHI" (lol) 
ninomiya: thats the part the fans say ! why are you saying that ?
matsumoto: he was also saying something weird during "pikanchi double".....i couldn't sing properly because of him (lol)
ninomiya: im on the same channel with sho-kun.
sakurai: did i say something as well?
ninomiya: not really, but you sometimes don't sing at all....especially during the encore, you just say "hi hi hi!" to pump up the fans (lol)
aiba: i noticed that too (lol)
sakurai: well ~ concert is all about being high tension! (lol)
ninomiya: i guess. i think concert is the only place where people could see you like that.

*Aiba is suitable for musicals ?*
aiba: i don't have anyone on my channel, but i normally sing everything.
sakurai: you even sing other people's part (lol)
aiba: you can hear my voice more than you can on CD's (lol)
sakurai: he even sings the part where me and him don't sing, and it seems like i'm slacking off not doing work, but that's not true!
aiba: thats how concerts go!
sakurai: you know some people sing other people's song during karaoke ? he is like that (lol)
ninomiya: aiba-san cannot "not" sing. when he's excited, he has to make it in tune.
matsumoto: oh, then you should do musicals!
ninomiya: thats what i was thinking for a while!
sakurai: if you go through all the concert DVD's, you can see how much aiba-chan is singing (lol)
matsumoto: but the PA(microphone system) staff knows when we are supposed to sing, so they turn off our voice during the times when we are not supposed to sing (lol)
aiba: well, its not the matter whether or not i get heard. im just trying to be high so it doesn't matter.
ohno: thats true. i never knew my mumbling was also heard, but thats okay. thats live concerts !
sakurai: ohno-san, how positive are you today ? (lol)

*Everyone so surprised with nino's speed of getting ready*
matsumoto: nino is always playing games, right before the concert starts.
sakurai: right, he plays the game with un-styled hair, so i say "nino, don't you have to get ready?"....and the next moment his hair is done (lol)
all: laugh
sakurai: we style our hair ourselves, but im always surprised by nino's speed!
ninomiya: well.....because the topic is on hair.....leader goes out on stage with a hair style he shouldn't...(lol) his back hair is like...sticking out (lol)
sakurai: isn't that narutal style hair ? (lol)
ohno: eh? my hair is really like that ?
sakurai: but leader, you always check the back of your head too right ? i've seen you do that.
ohno: yeah. im always being careful.
matsumoto: but there are times when your hair is like that.
aiba: well, that bump is going to shrink during the concert with the sweat and all...right ?
ohno: yeah!
ninomiya: so that means your hair isn't perfect when you go on stage ?
ohno: .........well...who cares! thats not the most important thing!
ninomiya: oh ic ic .....so where is the most important thing?
ohno: i guess.......the whole stage?
sakurai: the whole stage includes your hair ohno-san (lol)

*Matsujun is always calm*
ninomiya: matsujun always slips during the concert....he did it during this tour already.
aiba: i've heard that, but i've never really seen him slip my self.
matsumoto: its because of the CO2 machine (smoke machine)....the floor is black, and the machine is black, so i didn't know where the smoke was coming from, and i slipped with the smoke right under my shoes.
sakurai: are you serious ? isn't is quite embarassing to slip during the concert ?
matsumoto: of course. and it wasn't even during a song.....i was during the coda of the last line of the song....and it wasn't a slip....i actually fell down, and i still have a bruise inside my toe nail (lol)
all: laugh
sakurai: thats a.....quite large "slip" (lol)
ninomiya: and it was during his solo....
aiba: even then, you just stand up and act "cool" ? 
matsumoto: .............yes.............(lol)
sakurai: well, thats actually the only thing you can do (lol)
aiba: you can't really laugh....
ninomiya: and you can't really pretend for so long that you are hurt......
matsumoto: if i act like i was hurt, then people will start to worry (lol)
aiba: i slipped during a outdoor concert too. when you fall down so hard, even the fans can't laugh and they kinda stare at you........(lol) but i have to make sure i won't do it again.
matsumoto: the summer has just began! i like this summers tour because we use up the whole summer
ohno: at the end of august we are coming back to yokohama to do another three days, and after that we are going overseas, so we'll "ganbaru" until then! 

comment: i think fans should think of weirder uchiwa's to make arashi totally confused. (lol)

It's obvious they notice the same fans at the same time LOL "Shochikubi daisuki" uchiwa!

Must be for the melodies, they have Shochi & Kachang, Be-to & Captain whereas Aibachan hears a female laughter in his earpiece *hahaha*

Aibachan and me share the same trait - we sing every line even when it's not our turn, even when the mic is off (karaoke).

Ohchan adlibbing in their songs is so cool. He adds the little extra to all their songs ne.

Arigatou darling for the translation. Crack Arashi = Great Read.

i couldn't stop laughing when nino said there might be a jr called "russia"....(lol)
hell, they have one called "GOLF" so they might have "russia" too (LMAO)

i think the reason aiba-chan is on his own is because.....his laugh is so loud (lol)

*falls over*

i'm sure the russian fans meant 'love from russia' or 'russia loves you' or something.. they made such a big joke out of it XD, why would they wanna say they're bigger fans of russia than arashi lol

jr. named RUSSIA? XD

thanks! solo interviews would be much loved, junko^^

like i said in dun's reply.....

if they have "GOLF", soon or later they will have "RUSSIA" too (lmao)

thats what i thought too....maybe the russian fans weren't quite sure what their english signs meant...but arashi won't understand if they wrote it in their language.....yet they can't write japanese.....so they thought....

lets tell them that we love them....so I LOVE....
and we also have to tell them that we are from russia....so russia....

Actually there were russian fans, but they made "Russia loves you" stuff.. so maybe these were Jr fans ^^"

Thanks for your work, I really enjoyed reading ^_^

Oh-chan girl

Ah~ only one of them ^^'

Well I wonder if they were the ones, because she didn't write that O-o"
But maybe it was that Russia (Jr) -fan :P As I've heard, there are a lot of Jr fans on the cons lately @_@ (which was a bit strange to me when I heard that the first time)
