    I love reading these blog and interview translations being posted up. I've always liked Hikaru and Kaoru, but I like them more now thanks to Shinpei and Manpei. They really do seem like they are similar to the Hitachiin twins in many ways. It's sweet they still live together, too.

    I'm excited to hear that the Hikaru x Haruhi x Kaoru love triangle will be in the drama. Is this another hint the drama will go on longer than we first thought? I hope so! That would also mean we'd see the Hikaru x Haruhi x Tamaki triangle, too.

    Thank you for the translations and this thread! Those videos are great, too. These two are just too sweet. I love how humble they are. I can't wait to see more things posted about them here. (^ー^)

    Here's a tribute video someone made for the twins that I found on youtube.

    [I plan on making my own video-slideshow of them in the future I love you ]

    I'm not sure what the song is. . .

    Warning:
    Die-hard Takagi fangirls should use caution while watching this video. . .side effects for watching the video may include heavy panting/breathing, uncontrollable smiling, swooning,sighing, squealing, shrieking and of course. . .fantasy daydreaming Very Happy

    MANPEI:

    Hello☆
    Thanks for all the comments☆彡
    I carefully read them (●^ー^●)

    Everyone should definitely come to the Christmas event, ok? ♪

    Uhh,

    Everyone, did you know?
    Shinpei and I live together in Tokyo.

    I check Shinpei's BLOG everyday.
    Sometimes I even comment (laugh)
    I read it and it seems he went back to our parents' house in Nagoya.

    When I woke up, he wasn't in the house.
    And being all alone in the house...

    When I think about it, since I was born, no matter where or when, Shinpei has always been near me.
    In our parents' house, we slept in the same room,
    in nursery school, American school, elementary school, junior high school, high school,
    and then, moving to the capital.
    We're always together.

    So being in the house by myself gives me a really uneasy feeling (laugh)
    It's a strange sensation (・・')

    Can you understand that, everyone?

    I wonder when he'll come back...
    And I feel too embarrassed to call and ask him m(__)m

    In my family, he's my rival.
    The two of us aren't one.
    We each have our own charm points,
    so that when we combine, we become the strongest.



    In the fridge,
    it's Shinpei's yogurt.

    I'm secretly taking it♪

    Secretly, ok!!!!!

    ~*~*~*~

    ((Edit: now Shinpei's reply is below))

    SHINPEI'S BLOG REPLY:

    Hello (゜▽゜)/
    As always, thank you for all the comments★
    I read them with care♪

    Uh~~~

    Takagi Shinpei has come back to Tokyo today at noon♪
    It was a short trip, but I was able to feel refreshed★
    After all, the time I spend with my family and my hometown friends is special♪

    I think the next time I'll go home is New Year's~~♪

    Changing the subject!

    Uh~~~~~

    I read everyone's comments★
    So for the first time in a while I saw Manpei's blog...

    Manpei secretly ate it...

    My little yogurt......

    Everyone, thanks for the report o(^-^)o

    The second I got back, I told Manpei

    Shin: "You ate my yogurt, jerk"
    Man: "Uh... how do you know that...?"
    Shin: "From the comments in my blog, I looked at your blog. Even though if you just asked, it would have been completely OK♪"
    Man: "Uh... thanks♪"
    Shin: "I'll forgive you if you treat me to Starbucks♪♪"
    Man: "Ok. That's fine! So, I'm not in trouble? (laugh)"
    Shin: "Don't worry about it! Let's go to Starbucks!!♪♪"

    Like that, Manpei treated me to Starbucks and it was all settled peacefully★
    Promptly♪

    By the way, this is what I ordered at Starbucks!



    A green tea latte.
    It was crazy delicious!!
    I recommend it o(^-^)o

    And with the designed green tea latte drinking cup, that's the conclusion ♪♪
    So, on that note♪

    Here's a picture of Chao-kun o(^-^)o



    Everyone, please greet tomorrow with a smile★
    Good night o(^-^)o

    *high picthed fangirl screaming*

    AWWWWW!!! HE'S SOOOO CUTE!!!!
    WE WAS MISSING HIS YOUNGER BROTHER!!!! T_T T_T T_T

    Man-chan, you poor baby!!!

    And yes, I can TOTALLY understand. Me and my sister had "withdrawls" when I was living on campus for my first year of college. . .
    (She told me she would go to my empty room, and just sit on my bed for a long time in complete silence. . . Sad )
    When someone you're close to isn't there (even for a short period time) it's a very lonely/awkward feeling. . .

    I'm a bit confused though as to why while missing his brother. . .Manpei's solution was to eat Shinpei's yogurt in his absence. . . Suspect (Maybe eating his brother's food made him feel closer to him. . ?)

    And yes, I noticed how empty their fridge is too. . .(I wonder who does the grocery shopping?)
    Now that I think about it, even though Man-chan and Shin-chan are totally gorgeous and lovely looking specimens, sometimes when I see them shirtless or wearing tight fitting clothes, I can't help but think to myself. . .I really wish these guys would eat a little more. . . silent

    oh god, I know the feeling. Lots of Japanese celebrities are skinny skinny boys and so are a lot of my male friends so it's like "BOYS WHY YOU SO THIN, EAT SOMETHING."

    And I hate when my sister's gone, too, especially for really long periods of time. It's like, "...oh. I really want a hug right now but she's not here." My sister gives excellent hugs whenever I want them. (and sometimes when I don't. XD "PLEASE LET GO OF ME NOW, I HAVE THINGS TO DO.")

    I laughed SO HARD when I heard about that, too!! I kept thinking how irrational it seems: "I miss Shinpei... I'm going to eat his yogurt" LOL But it's super adorable~~

    BTW, I also fangirled pretty hard when he was wondering when Shinpei would be back but was too embarrassed to call him and find out! I love you

    They love each other so much <3 But they're different on how they show it. Manpei wants to use words but seems embarrassed to say it directly... but his actions say it well (telling everyone how they've always been by each other's side and how he reads Shinpei's blog everyday!) I think Shinpei tells Manpei that he loves him by constantly touching him XDD

    OMG, thank you! Somebody agrees with me!! LOL
    I noticed that with A LOT of Japanese male celebrities. Incredibly handsome, talented, down to earth men. . .but just SO tiny!! Sad

    Just the other day I was looking at a picture of Manpei. . .it was a side view of him washing dishes in his kitchen (so I'm assuming Shinpei took the picture), and as I was looking at him, I was like. . .Oh my goodness. . .where's the rest of him?? Shocked
    I just want them to be healthy. . .you know? There's already enough crazy women out there who think that being the same weight as a lawn chair is totally hot. . .I'd hate to see our beautiful men go down that road too. . .

    And that's great that you're so close to your sister too! Smile My sister just got back home from visiting some relatives for a few days. . .and during that time I just kept wandering around the house thinking. . .Aw, there's no one here to play with me. . . Crying or Very sad
    I love hugs from my sis as well Hug (eh, most of the time anyway. . .)

    I'm a bit jealous of them, because at least when it comes to the boys who are my friends, I've seen them eat. They come by that weight naturally. XD

    and yeah, people think it's weird how close my sister and I are, we hang out all the time. >w<

    also I showed that video with the twins' crossdressing and dancing to my sister. XD We agree that the one in purple (too tired to try and figure out who it is XD) is more convincing as a lady, but the one in orange for some reason reminds us of Catherine Tate (the actress who played Donna in Doctor Who). >w<

    aaaaaw... I think I got overly emotional over the yogurt saga. Knowing that Man reads Shin's blog every day and even comments while Shin doesn't read his blog unless people come to warn him he's one yogurt short kind of breaks my heart. o.ò

    But of course, as someone already said, they show their love for each other differently. Maybe Shinpei talks through hugs <3

    These two got me in an emotional roller-coaster today and I'm not even ashamed of it. They're such wonderful boys <3


    BTW I approve of Manpei's devilish yogurt thief smile. u.ú

    You guys are awesome <3

    I think the one in purple is Shinpei? But yeah I agree the one in purple looks more feminine. Maybe it has something to do with the color?

    ALRIGHTY!! This took me a while~~~ but it is REALLY worth it. The accompanying interview for the photoshoot (also X-posted to the Magazine scans thread in Off-Topic to be next to the accompanying pictures) Enjoy! I love you

    ~*~*~*~*~

    Manpei Takagi and his younger brother Shinpei are identical twins ☆ From the moment they were born, they’ve always been together, even choosing the same career path as actors. Not sick of each other, they’re mysteriously close, even after being together year after year! Are their feelings as exact as their DNA? We checked with GC’s super popular compatibility quiz!

    Since you’re twins, let’s check your compatibility and synchronization rate!

    START

    As soon as we handed Shinpei a blue sketchbook and Manpei a red one, Manpei comments, “Oh, this is nostalgic~ a long time ago, we used to wear matching outfits, except we decided that I would wear red and Shinpei would wear blue. Now I’m playing GekiBlue, so my ‘blue’ image is really prevalent but when I was young, I only wore red.” Their handwriting is also an exact match♪

    Q1 What’s the biggest fight you have had and what caused it? Who apologized?

    This answer matched. When they first started living together, Manpei complained to Shinpei that he wasn’t helping out with the chores and Shinpei got angry instead (laugh). Shinpei kicked over and scattered all of their clean laundry that Manpei had worked hard to fold, and it started a big fight (laugh). It seems that after some reflection on the matter, Shinpei apologized. Manpei commented, “It’s pretty stupid, huh? (laugh) But the only fights we have are of this sort. We have these trivial fights like an old married couple, and then as soon as we argue, we make up.”

    Q2 Please tell us about each other’s weak points.

    According to Shinpei, Manpei’s weakness is “bugs” but according to Manpei, it’s “parents”. The other day, there was a well-known black bug that appeared in their room, and Manpei’s panic was amazing (laugh). Also, when Manpei is in front of his father, it seems that he gets really nervous. According to Manpei, Shinpei’s weakness is “driving a car” because when he’s driving their father’s car, he’s really nervous. Shinpai said he really dislikes “hijiki”, the black edible seaweed sold in dried strips, because it’s said that the more hijiki you eat, the darker your hair will become, so they were forced to eat it all the time (laugh)

    Q3 What do you like about each other? See if you can guess what you think your partner will say.

    Shinpei said that he likes that Manpei will come out and say things plainly. Because they’re brothers, Manpei will give honest, constructive criticism on a scene, etc, so Shinpei can improve himself, and Shinpei’s grateful. Conversely, Manpei said he thought his kindness and dependability would be liked (laugh). Then Manpei said that he likes how Shinpei is so happy and energetic. When Shinpei has a cold, and he stops being bubbly, Manpei worries about him and won’t even go to sleep so he can take care of Shinpei. It seems Shinpei thought it was his strong determination to never give up that would be liked.

    Q4 This time, what do you want to fix about each other? See if you can guess your partner’s answer.

    Manpei said that he hates Shinpei’s lack of planning and his complaining. When asked if that’s what Shinpei thought Manpei hated, he was right and said “my tendency to nag”. Surprisingly, it seems Manpei is moody. When we asked if Shinpei if he also said Manpei’s temperamental side, Shinpei had also answered “his lack of planning”. But Manpei worries about Shinpei who never really saves money, and often buys Shinpei’s meals (laugh).

    Q5 What makes you glad you’re twins?

    This answer matched. “That we could enter the same company and we can work together.” Manpei said, “Without Shinpei, I wouldn’t have decided to become an actor, and because he never gives up, I also do my best.” Shinpei also had a similar feeling, saying, “Because Manpei is here, I’m motivated every day, and my opportunities have increased. Manpei gives me emotional support so I can do my best,” recognizing the perks of being twins more as actors working together than as brothers, but they think they’re happy being able to be as close to each other as possible.


    Compatibility results

    More than ‘twins’, more than ‘brothers’, these two have an ‘old married couple’ type of relationship (laugh). These two have been coupled for many years and I expected that they would know each other thoroughly, but I was frequently surprised that there are parts of each other they know nothing about as well. Even though they have the same DNA, it’s because they have completely different characteristics and personalities that they’re so motivated and extremely close! Even though they fight over trivial things, a minute later they make up ☆ Whether praising or bad-mouthing each other, it’s a relationship with no pretenses, so their pairing is a definite plus. I’m as jealous as I can be!

    ~*~*~*~*~

    Manpei: This is the first time I’ve ever heard that you like melon (laugh)

    Shinpei: Not like so much as I just want to eat it right now! It was a gut reaction, a gut reaction! I knew that you like sushi, though.

    Manpei: What is that, going to Harajuku for crepes!? (laugh)

    Shinpei: Shut up~! (laugh) It’s ok, isn’t it? But, when I look at this, we have a lot of similar answers after all.

    Manpei: So you wash your hair first, right? What next?

    Shinpei: I rinse once.

    Manpei: Naturally. Next?

    Shinpei: Conditioner.

    Manpei: Certainly! Let’s say it at the same time… next?

    Manpei & Shinpei together: brush my teeth!

    Manpei:, Of course, while the conditioner sets, you brush your teeth. And next?

    Shinpei: Rinse out the conditioner.

    Manpei: I wash my body without rinsing.

    Shinpei: Why?! I said it before, didn’t I, that if you wash your body and then rinse the conditioner, the conditioner gets stuck to your skin, doesn’t it!?

    Manpei: Because I want the conditioner to set longer, even if it’s only for another minute!... ...and that’s the usual kind of stupid thing we fight about every day (laugh)

    Shinpei: And letting or not letting me use the cell phone headphones also turns into a fight.

    Manpei: We also have the same kind of phone, but Shinpei doesn’t have headphones for it.

    Shinpei: We listen to music on the train by using a headphone each, but when I think about it more, it’s embarrassing (laugh). So even though I ask him to use them, he won’t let me.

    Manpei: It’s alright to listen to it together, isn’t it? (laugh)

    Shinpei: The kind of girls we’re interested in is the same, too, so it’s difficult.

    Manpei: When I say that I think I like a girl, too, but Shinpei said he liked her first, I yield.

    Shinpei: That’s because for twins, the fastest is the winner!

    Manpei: This is private (laugh) but, at work, we don’t want to become the exact same in everything; we want to go in as individual personalities.

    Shinpei: Yeah. We don’t want to be chosen because we’re twins, we want to be chosen because we’re Shinpei and Manpei, and if we take the same audition, we want to establish a firm distinction between us.

    Manpei: That sort of thing is good and it gives us real motivation, so of course I always want to continue to be an actor together with Shinpei. It’s because Shinpei is here that I can have this awareness of our uniqueness.

    Shinpei: It’d be great to be able to cut out the idea of “twins” and work together as individual actors! Until then, we’ll work together and do our best to polish our performance!
