What left the biggest impression in my private life this year was definitely graduating from university! Even looking back at it now, there were so many things I've learned. In any case, since I had to read and write a lot of texts, I feel like my writing skills improved a bit. Exchanging mails back and forth with my teachers was also something new. The way you speak there is also different from usual, so I used "watashi" (the normal, polite form for "I", which would not be used by guys in normal everyday conversion) for the first time in the mails (laughs).
I am completely obsessed with my kitchen garden. The herbs I got from Inohara (Yoshihiko)-san have been growing nicely. I'm enjoying it a lot, so I recently bought and started to grow cherry tomatoes and goya [bitter melon] and other vegetable greens. The cherry tomatoes had fruits from the start and after watering them, they became red quickly. The goya is not yet there, but since the tendrils keep growing, I put up a net. With the vegetable greens, after they increased quickly I thought that together with all the other things it would be better to transfer them into a bigger pot, so I also bought a new planting box. Though I didn't have any time yet to fill it with earth... I think I soon will be making herb tea with the herbs. Seeing them grow up with my own eyes puts me into high spirits.
What constitutes manliness... Not caring about small things, always ladies first, having one or two heroic tales, something like that. What I've carried out so far is ladies first. I always naturally tried to be friendly towards girls ever since I was a child. It's because I was always told by my father "to treat girls nicely". So from the time where we bathed together, I was taught that "Being nice and being tidy is what makes a guy popular with girls." It seems my father wanted to raise me to be a popular guy (laughs). Well, but it's good that thanks to that I could naturally learn about "ladies first" kind of things. If I were to go somewhere with a girl, I'd properly attend to her! And then, heroic tales! I don't have any of those (laughs). But strength in fights hasn't really anything to do with manliness, does it? As long as you have the strength to protect the girl when it's important, then it's enough.

K&N: Good evening!
Nanao: The original work is very funny. If this will be faithfully reproduced in the script... How will Izumi's cosplay and the gags be presented? Personally, I'm really looking forward to what's coming.
Higashimura Akiko's "Omoni naitemasu" will be made into a drama, starting in July on Fuji TV as the weekly Saturday drama from 11.10 pm till 11.55.
1. Love is ____! Something enjoyable! There are a lot of positive aspects for both. 2. Three conditions for the kind of girls you like Have a part I can respect. Have their own strong will. Similar interests. 3. The members whose "strike zone" of love seems wide Koki. 4. The first thing you do regarding a girl you're interested in Striking up conversations to get to know them. 5. How you get when in love I feel good, being cheerful every day. 6. What if you and a friend liked the same girl? That would be a problem. How I'd act would depend on how much I liked her. 7. Is it OK if the girl confesses first? Of course. But ideally, I'd like to say it first. 8. When sick with a cold, what kind of gesture would touch you? Being weakened, having anything done for me would make me happy. Of course also when I just get a mail saying "Are you all right?" when suffering from heat fatigue. 9. This method is effective that I fall for her For me, being able to look up to her is in any case important. When girls know stuff that I don't, I think "Oh! ♡". 10. Something that "might generally be good, but would have the reverse effect on me" Quickly getting excited about things for no reason. 11. The time in your life where you were the most popular No matter how much I look back at my life up till now, there doesn't exist a period of popularity. That is, I don't think I want to be popular in the first place… 12. The moment you feel happiness when being in love That certainly is when you are thinking of your partner, isn't it? 13. The pattern of love you easily get caught up in Even though I thought "how nice" on the first meeting, it definitely doesn't evolve into love. 14. If you bought matching things with her Rings. 15. If you asked her to cook something for you Omurice. 16. If you cooked something for her Pasta with chili peppers (peperoncino). I got taught how to make them on "KAT-TUN no zettai manetakunaru TV" and after trying it again at home, I got quite good at it ♪ 17. What if you were told "change your hairstyle and fashion"? It would also depend on the content of her request, but I'd do my best to meet it as far as I could. But I wouldn't get a Mohawk or something (laughs). 18. What if the clothes you got from her weren't your taste? I'd still wear them. 19. Your tsundere percentage? I never quite understand it, so I'm neither tsun [the 'cold' surface] nor dere [the 'lovestruck' inside]. If I had to say, I might be a little tsun. 20. If you discussed love troubles with the others? Anyone would be good. Since everyone's way of thinking is different, it would be interesting asking all of them. The one with opinions close to mine might be Taguchi. 21. Did you ever develop deeper feelings for a friend? Yes. It probably happens more often on my part, I think. 22. When would you start noticing a girl? When I think "how cute~". Like, the moment she smiles broadly and my heart skips a beat. 23. What if on your first date your conversation would pause and turn into silence? I ask what she had to eat yesterday. 24. What would you do if on a date you went to see a movie and she fell asleep? I'd act a bit cross and wake her up. But if she didn't wake up, I'd let her sleep. 25. When you go to the girl's room for the first time, what do you look at first? If her shoes right at the entrance [the floor before you step into someone's home, where people take off/leave the shoes] are arranged properly. A dirty hallway is not good. 26. The girl will come to your room for the first time in 10 minutes. What do you do in any case? I clean up the hallway. It'll be the first impression of your living space, right. 27. What if you watched DVDs at your place? I would like to watch a war movie, but since a girl would definitely not be interested in that, I'd fit it to her. 28. Would you ask about her past love? Since it would be on my mind, I'd probably ask. But there are also people who wouldn't want to be asked, so if that was the case, I would try not to. 29. If you get a girlfriend, do you tell your family? Maybe, maybe not, it wouldn't really be a conscious choice. 30. If the girl didn't show up for a date and you can't reach her cell, how long would you wait? It depends on the place and season. If it was somewhere in the city, I could kill time in some stores. And if I was in my car, I'd wait. When speaking of a situation I wouldn't wait in the most, if it was cold, without any stores, and raining, I'd leave after 20 minutes. 31. Who of the others seems to be the most dedicated? Taguchi. 32. What if you forgot her birthday? I'd act like I was one day late on purpose. I'd confidently go, "Happy yesterday's birthday!" (laughs) 33. What you do differently when sending mails to a girl Using casual phrases. Also, emoticons and such. 34. Would you want to look through your girlfriend's cell phone? I did want to before. 35. If she told you "show me your phone"? I'd show her even though I wouldn't like it. 36. If she told you "delete all the addresses of other girls"? Impossible. I'd properly explain and make her understand. 37. What if she started crying during a fight? Even if I wasn't at fault, I'd apologise and comfort her. 38. The moment where even a 100 years old love cools off? Once you like someone, it would not cool off because of just one thing. 39. Would you go back to being friends with an ex-girlfriend? No. 40. Would you throw away presents you got from your ex-girlfriend? Yes. 41. Would you delete your ex-girlfriend's address? Basically yes. 42. What if you received an invitation to your ex-girlfriend's wedding? I'd refuse. 43. What you do to recover from a broken heart? I go out to drink with friends. 44. What if you found your girlfriend linking arms with another guy? I'd be depressed. I would like to inquire about it right there, but it might not be possible. 45. What's the biggest surprise you arranged so far? I'm not good with surprises. I couldn't think of what I should do. 46. The percentage love is taking up in your brain? Maybe about 20. The rest would be 50 for work and 30 for games and school and so on. 47. Are you in love right now? With watching soccer and games! 48. For which member love seems to take up a high percentage in their brain? Koki. 49. A part of you you definitely don't want to show your girlfriend? None in particular. 50. And something you would only show to her? Being weak.
Do you like hugging or do you hate it? I like it! Because I think it easily conveys your feelings. Earlier, after finishing "Hayami-san to yobareru hi", I also hugged with Inohara-kun, saying "thanks for the good work!"
Would you either live in a world where it's +40 degrees or -40? Since I don't like heat, -40. Because I could get through it by wearing thick clothes. And I wouldn't leave the house if possible… eh? Wait! This is about 40 degree Celsius and 40 degree below zero? Then 40 degrees would be better. That actually happens once in a while in Saitama and so on. This is a weird question! [I usually hold back the comments, but gee, Nakamaru, how do you usually measure temperature? In Kelvin? Or what are you, American? >_> And he has probably forgotten about his little punishment trip with Jin to Hokkaido...]
