[With 20 pictures] Eguchi Takuya, Nishiyama Koutarou, and Saito Souma had a loaded talk! “Eguchi Takuya no Oretachi Datte Iyasaretai!”’s DVD launch event report
On August 7 (Sunday), the DVD launch event of “Eguchi Takuya no Oretachi Datte Iyasaretai!” which had been broadcast since January 2016 on TOKYO MX, was held at the Setagaya Ward Hall.
“Eguchi Takuya no Oretachi Datte Iyasaretai!” is a show whose theme is “healing”. Eguchi Takuya-san, and Nishiyama Koutarou-san, who plays the role of his assistant, greet their guests every time with a journey for healing.
Participating in the event were Eguchi-san and Nishiyama-san, as well as the show’s narrator Saito Souma-san who served as an on-stage moderator. The audience’s cheers went up to those three people who appeared in yukata for summer.
In the first corner, while the DVD special edition bonus “Saito Souma no Bokutachi Datte Iyasaretai!” was playing, those three gave out live commentary about their memories and inside stories. During said talk, due to the awkward exchanges between Nishiyama-san and Saito-san, who were face-to-face in the initial broadcast, Eguchi-san asked “do you guys really get along?”; a scene where Nishiyama-san gets bullied by two people.
Also, in the extra recording inside an izakaya, the microphones for recording and the in-store speaker matched, the three of them said some happening will occur inside the store.
After that, the three answered questions received by the show’s Twitter account, and screened unreleased videos, so the [people at the] event were really pumped up.
Because of this flow, there was a corner about two main (?) character illustrations being shown off. Eguchi-san and Nishiyama-san’s drawings in the show were published, but on this day they were drawn on the spot. Those three each made “Pen-kun”, “Healing Emperor” and another character for the next show “Healing Emperor”, causing groans and laughter in the venue.
Speaking of Eguchi-san, his LINE stamp doodles have also become famous. To this Eguchi-san, Saito-san asked, “these are like the pictures of a master painter; is there awareness in these drawings, or is there some spontaneity in drawing them?” Eguchi-san said that his hand just moves by itself [when he draws].
At the end of the event, the program’s second season “Eguchi Takuya no Oretachi Datte Motto Iyasaretai!” was announced; it will be broadcast every other week starting October, the first guest will be Umehara Yuuichiro-san. The venue hall was greatly excited.
Finally, Eguchi-san said, “it’s just a show about doing whatever you want, but thanks to the fans a second season has been decided, which makes me happy. Also, I want to pursue a power-up in healing.” And with these words with fiery enthusiasm, the curtain on this event has been lowered.

- Fun fact: as said in OreIya ep 1, Egu was actually born in Setagaya! He says the closest big place to his birthplace was Ibaraki buuuuuut he actually lived in Setagaya from 0-1 years old (lol) idk if this venue choice was a callback to this but either way it’s a great coincidence!
- Also: the pictures were separate from the report so idk if this order of photos is correct! I just guessed based on the writer’s report lol
