Ohta started it off by saying: "Uhmmm, so yeah, they had this event yesterday for the World Cup, right?", referring to the announcement of the 23 players going to Brazil to represent Japan.
Ohta continued: "That one's turning up to be one heckuva noisemaker, right?" "I'm not interested in it all, though." "Seriously... I'm already feeling depressed at the thought of the World Cup".
His partner Yuji Tanaka said: "I guess that's true with you Ohta-san. It starts in about a month from now", to which Ohta responded: "Ugh, just thinking about that disgusting fanfare and noise that comes with it...".
Tanaka proceeded to explain that the World Cup will be held in Brazil, meaning that the games will be played in the morning so there won't be too much commotion at night, but Ohta comments: "Seriously, I'm getting the doldrums... Just the mood of it, like how everyone will go 'Ehhhh---!? You didn't watch the game!?' and 'Uwaaaa!!'."
"Why should I sympathize with you on something like that! Even if I did watch the games, I wouldn't share my feelings with you!"
And I'm not interested in you
Let's have this guy as our World Cup main personality
Then don't watch if you don't want to
He probably has no knowledge about soccer, that's why he's disappointed.
Why doesn't this guy just hang himself?
I kinda understand him. I'm not like Ohta or anything, but it's true that I'm losing interest in soccer every year.
People would want to sleep at that time ww
That's like 4:15 in the morning www
I'm someone who doesn't watch the Olympics nor the World Cup so I kind of get where he's coming from, just don't watch it if you don't want to. Especially the gossip shows.
Why not stop being a Japanese citizen? I don't think anyone will be troubled if Ohta isn't Japanese anymore.
Arrest all those guys who are causing a riot in Shibuya
That's what I think too. About the WBC (World Baseball Classic).
People get excited about soccer > "Most of those guys are just bandwagoners"
Makes noise > "These soccer fans are the worst"
Something's not right there
Bakusho Mondai was all excited during the WBC, though.
Bakusho Mondai are your typical yaki-butas*
* (derogatory term for baseball fanatics)
I'm not interested in soccer either so I feel troubled when people start talking to me about that, and I guess I do feel out of place. But then again, I can't understand why you'd have to tell that to the public and rain on everyone else's parade.
Who cares? I'm sure that there are a lot of people who don't care about the World Cup too.
He said the correct thing here
Does this guy want to divide the Japanese people?
I loathe Ohta but I have to agree with him
The whole world would be in trouble if we don't have the World Cup, but no one would feel troubled even if we don't have Ohta
He's just jumping at every opportunity to criticize something so people will take notice of him
DT's Hamada also said the same thing during the Japan-Korea World Cup, though
It only happens once every 4 years so what's wrong with making noise? How narrow-minded is he? I wonder if he's having fun in life when he keeps on calling everything "disgusting".
I get how he feels because I'm not interested in soccer too, but he shouldn't have mentioned it like that. He's not exactly young, too.
This is not that different from the festivals in the provinces, though. If you don't like this, then just quit being a Japanese and go to a country that isn't participating in the World Cup. No one's stopping you. You said it so go do that.
If we're talking about disgusting stuff, then Ohta's much more disgusting.
Putting the grossness of how people are making noise about this aside, it's not everyday that such a festive event comes so it'd be a waste if you don't enjoy it
Is this guy stupid? Or is getting backlash the only method he can think of in order to get some publicity?
I too am not interested in soccer so I actually have the same opinion as Ohta.
After criticizing the movie Frozen, he goes on to dis the World Cup. Looks like Ohta can only generate buzz using negative press.
I strongly agree with Ohta. Why are people making such a huge noise even if we don't even have the slightest of chances to win the whole thing? That's what I don't get, it's not about liking soccer or not. Look at other tournaments, no one would rejoice even if you only got to the top 8. You just have start rooting for them once they become stronger, or else the players will just get disillusioned.
I also feel disgusted when I see Ohta going crazy like a fool so I don't watch TV
I'm a fan of Hikari Ohta, but this isn't a big deal to me. This is just the usual Ohta.
It's just natural that people like different things. And going all the way to say this on radio just makes it sound like he's picking a fight.
People can do anything they want, as long as they don't make noise on the streets
If you're not interested at all then don't even bring it up as a topic on radio, you trash
LOL, people bashing Ohta don't even seem like soccer fans
I'm irritated at the people who aren't even soccer fans making noise on the sides of the streets
What's wrong with rooting for Japan?
I'll root for the Japanese team when the soccer fans don't go wild anymore. It's not that I hate soccer.
Even when they think otherwise, celebrities should just keep their mouths shut. They wouldn't want to get on the nerves of these sponsors who want to make a profit off the World Cup, or else they'd go to the producers and prevent these talents from getting jobs. Well, I hate BakuMon so I don't really mind that, though...
People who only talk about soccer once every four years are irritating
I don't think that the festive mood is disgusting... But I'm more depressed at seeing the people who aren't even huge soccer fans making so much noise.
I just hope people stop causing such a ruckus at the Shibuya intersection
He's actually on the same level as the people who aren't even interested, but are riding the popularity of the World Cup and making some noise
I wonder if he could have said the same thing during the Olympics and the WBC
It's just normal to have opinions like this. This is also how I feel when I'm at the outfield of a baseball field.
I'm also not interested. Everyone has the freedom to speak.
I'm really looking forward to all the matches. I feel sorry for the people who are only looking forward to Japan's games.
I seriously agree with him. The ones done in Shibuya are truly disgusting, they're like barbarians.
Ahh, I guess it can be unpleasant. I want the soccer team to do their best, but the media reports during this time truly is disgusting. I think that those Shibuya footages are more like taunting the others.
Who cares what he thinks? I personally have no interest in what Ohta's interests are w
