    (my rough translation)


    0:15
    Mao: I've seen Akko-chan(=Akiko's nickname) skating since I was little. I've known Kanako-chan since she came to rinks with randoseru on her back.(my note: Japanese elementary school students use this specific school bag called "randoseru" from Duch word 'ransel'.) We've been very good friends and we're enjoying ourselves having good time.

    1:10
    Mao: Feeling you are great to have made your decision.
    Akiko: Decision to retire?
    Mai: Can hesitate like "I could do more."
    Akiko: To continue or not continue one has to be determined and brave.

    1:40
    Akiko: We haven't come to restaurants together recently. Happy today.
    Mao: After finishing Olympics we've been doing our own things separately. Well, guess what we'll have first.
    Kanako: Salad?
    Akiko: A la carte in French course?
    Mao: Something like Otsumami? (my note: 'otsumami' is is a Japanese term referring to food eaten as an accompaniment to alcohol, usually applies to smaller dishes)
    TV crew: Amuse-bouche.
    Akiko: Amuse-bouche.
    Mao: Oh, yeah, it's not otsumami. hahaha Amuse-bouche.

    2:20
    Mao: Wow.
    Kanako: Fluffy!
    Mao: How fluffy! Did he say tomato is on the bottom?
    Kanako: He said so, didn't you hear him? lol
    Mao: Oh, year?
    Akiko: Something crunchy is in it.
    Mao: Guess what. Is it lotus roots?
    Kanako: Definitely not.

    Akiko: We don't have much free time even during off season, though. Do you have anything you'd love to do?
    Mao: Things I'd love to do?
    Akiko: Something you can do only in off season.
    Mao: I'd love to go on a travel without bringing skating boots with me.
    Akiko: We've been in somewhere very cold...
    Mao: Love to warm myself.
    Akiko: Yeah.
    Mao: I've stayed enough in cold places.
    Kanako: Somewhere sun is shining brightly. And staying in the shade...
    Mao: In the shade! Avoiding tanned. Well, then you go for what!?
    Kanako:
    Mao: OK, we can be tanned.
    Akiko: Since I've retired, I'm thinking about going on a trip to southern islands.
    Mao: I'd love to.
    Kanako: Sounds sooo nice.
    Akiko: Such as eating organic vegetables there.
    Mao & Kanako: Love to!
    Akiko: I've dreamed for so long but couldn't. So I'm going to do what I've dreamed of. Ah, this crunchy something must be celery.
    Kanako: I knew it is celery but I didn't say so and I've been waiting till you finish talking.
    Akiko: Sorry!
    Mao: It doesn't taste celery at all, does it?
    Kanako: It does! So I noticed!
    Mao: Really?
    Kanako:

    Akiko: Do you have any skater whom you care in any meaning?
    Mao & Kanako: ...........
    Kanako: (Doing the opening pose of Machida's East of Eden.)
    Akiko: Machida-kun was wonderful in this season!
    Kanako: I was surprised to know it was his first skating in Worlds.
    Akiko: Same as me. Me also skated in Olympics before experiencing Worlds.
    Mao: Yeah.
    Akiko: He was really wonderful.
    Mao: Yuzuru-kun was wonderful, too.
    Akiko: Male skaters were really wonderful.
    Kanako: Can't believe he's as old as me.
    Akiko: You mean Yuzuru-kun?
    Mao: Ah, yes. Yuzu-kun is the same age as Kana. Me the same as Machey(=Machida's nick name). And you(to Akiko)
    Akiko: I'm the same age as Dai-chan(=Daisuke's nickname).
    Kanako: (to Mao)You're the same age as Machey!?
    Mao:Yeah.
    Kanako: hehehe
    Mao: Eh? What do you mean?
    Akiko: (to Mao) You're experienced skater... Maybe you don't remember how many times you skated in Worlds?
    Mao: Well, I don't.

    All: (Seeing the dish.) Beautiful.
    Mao: Awww.
    Akiko: How do you like it?
    Mao: Delllisciousss. How fluffy this fish is!
    Kanako: Excuse me but may I slurp the soup inside of clam's shell?
    Mao: Go ahead.
    Kanako: Ahhh Sooo yummmy.
    Mao: I try the soup of clam too!
    Kanako: Go ahead! It's so yummy, isn't it?

    6:20
    Akiko: Four years till Pyeongchang Olympics. Can you imagine what you'll be doing four years later?
    Kanako: If possible, I wish I'll be studying coaching.
    Akiko: I want to study choreographing. And also, considering my age, I wish I'll be married till then.
    Kanako: I'll participate in your wedding.
    Akiko: Yes, please!
    Kanako: I'll appear in your wedding in the Olympic costume!
    Akiko: So do I! My Olympic costume was white so it'll be OK.
    Kanako: It must be OK. But I think Kana's and Mao's costumes will attract more attention because of the colors.
    Akiko: You don't have any idea about yourself in four years, Mao?

    7:30
    Akiko: Four years till Pyeongchang Olympics. Can you imagine what you'll be doing four years later?
    Mao: I don't have any idea at all.

    8:20
    Akiko: You don't have any idea about yourself in four years, Mao?
    Mao: I don't have any idea at all. What will I be doing?
    Akiko: I think there are people across this country, or all over the world, who are wondering what you're going to do from now. I don't want you to hurry, though. Me think you'd be better take enough time before you decide. Maybe you say you want her to continue, Kanako?
    Kanako: Yes.
    Mao: One more year, Kana-chan.Try your best since you made up your mind to continue.
    Kanako: Thank you. hehehe
    Mao: You're still young. More to achieve from now.
    Kanako: Well...
    Mao: (to Akiko) Feeling you are great to have made your decision.
    Akiko: Decision to retire?
    Mao: One has to be brave enough to make a decision.
    Akiko: So true. Need to be brave.
    Mao: I want to know you also hesitated thinking such as "I might be able to do more".
    Akiko: I gradually understood (whether I can do more or not). But even so, I was frightened making a decision at first. I've been doing my best to skate in competitions. So, I was not sure whether I'll be able to find something to do my best for after my retirement. I think that basically we love doing our bests even though it's very tough to do so. We feel "I'm alive!" when we're doing our bests. If you don't have competitions any more and don't work hard for them....
    Mao: How will it go?
    Kanako: I don't have any idea either.
    Akiko: Well, one might wonder such as "What am I practicing for?" But, as for me, my environment was gradually well prepared and it encouraged me a lot. I became excited for my future instead of frightened. I didn't want to be regretful so I tried to prepare for my retirement. Although my results in Worlds was not so good, I felt relieved and "OK, it's finished and the next life is starting!" It was not the end but it was a start.
    Kanako: So cooool.
    Mao: Wonderful.
    Kanako: Sooo cooool!
    Mao & Kanako: (Clapping)
    Akiko: Not that cool. hehe Feelings were more important than the results.
    Kanako: Ah, yeah.
    Akiko: That's what I wanted to tell both of you. Do what you do, don't be regretful. If you have a bit of feelings such as "I can do more," ........
    Mao: Hmmmm....
    Akiko: I understand it'll be so tough if you continue...
    Mao: Well, when I continue....
    Akiko: To continue or not continue one has to be determined and brave. So, take your time...
    Mao: Uh‐huh... It was nice to hear you today.
    Akiko: I believe people around the world will support you even if you decide whatever.
    Mao: Uh‐huh...
    Akiko: (to the camera) Please be patient, don't hurry her up, everyone.
    Mao: hahaha
    Akiko: Please be supportive.

    11:40
    Akiko: Do you have any dreams aside from figure skating?
    Kanako: I don't have any idea since figure skating has been everything for me.
    Akiko: Since we're girls, we dream of marriage.
    Kanako: Ahhhh.
    Mao: That's right.
    Akiko: Eventually...
    Kanako: Wish I get married and give birth to babies, and build a happy family.
    Akiko: Yeah. Let's get together with our own kids.
    Kanako: Yes, let's!
    Mao: Want to skate together.
    Kanako: Oda-kun's kids must be grown up till then, so they'll take care of our kids. And we'll be able to enjoy ourselves as usual.
    Akiko: Let's live happy lives definitely since we've done enough working so hard.
    Kanako: So true.
    Mao: Yes, let's definitely.

    (End)


    I enjoyed this talk show so much. They looked in good relationships -well balanced age differences, supportive to each other. Loved Kanako's pop character. Nice to hear Akiko talks about the process of her retirement. Nice to see Akiko encouraged Mao, Mao encouraged Kanako, and Kanako made Akiko & Mao laugh naturally.

    Looks like this performance of "The Walker" (Buttle, Chan, Moir, Fernandez, Alex Shibutani) is from the BS cable broadcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4EFwti4Mog

    Are there other videos from the BS broadcast on YT?

    ^I've been looking for vids on youtube, tudou, or dailymotion since May 11th but the vid you posted is the first one I saw on them. And the same youtube user posted a vid of opening number as well. Shame it doesn't have the commentary(Akiko Suzuki worked as a commentator on BS broadcasting.)
