Oh, so much buzzing has been going on around here lately about our boys. . .
I'm so pleased!!
I only wish Jade-sama was still around so she could enjoy watching the madness that she helped to create. . .
But I'm mega glad that the rest of us are able to keep this forum (as well as our unhealthy addiction to the Takagi twins) alive.
Thank you so much
Okay, now down to business. . .
Sari-chan. . .I watched both of your videos and they're GRRRRRRREAT!!
I liked the music choices and the pictures you used as well. . .although there's really no such thing as a "bad" picture of the twins, right? ^_^
Rena-chan, I adore your Manpei photo edit. I personally think Manpei looks flirty no matter what ^_^ And I love the fact that he doesn't even have to try. You know that saying that 'a picture is worth a thousand words'?
Let's just say that if that's true then Manpei must say a lot of naughty things with his eyes and body language in his pictures. . .
And I think he somehow manages to sneak flirty-ness phrases in his messages to his fans too. Like in the blog he posted a few days ago. . ."I read all of the comments on my blog,
Although there were many people who were unable to come,
I went on stage thinking about you
If there is another chance like this,
I’ll be waiting ☆
Tonight I will sleep well
How does he do that???

I can honestly say that I've never thought about it like that before. . .
Usually I think of Shinpei as the handsome, playful, affectionate cutie pie, but as the "bad boy"?
I think you may be onto something there
I rather like that image: Manpei as the playboy, Cassanova type and Shinpei as the in your face, bad boy type.
IT'S TWO TYPES OF SEXINESS PUT TOGETHER!!!
And do you know how awesome that would be if they ever got casted with roles like that for real?
*starts imagining possible roles*

I haven't the slightest idea eva-chan
First I was ALL about Manpei, then I was TOTALLY obsessed with Shinpei. Now I'm boucning back and forth between the two of them. Why must they both be so charming and attractive??!
Oh right, 'cuz they're twins. . . .lol
I honestly think that to get a better feel for their natural personalities, I need to see more footage of them interacting with each other and other people when they're NOT acting.
(If only I could watch TTTV!!!)
Well actually, I've watched a fair amount of videos of Shinpei with him and his Tenimyu buddies, but I've only seen about a handful of "behind the scenes" footage of Manpei.
In the 3 or 4 interviews he's done by himself. . .HE'S JUST SO SHY AND NERVOUS IN THEM!!!
It's like he was always trying to find the right words to say, but he'd end up stammering and he pauses a lot when he talks. . .and then there's a lot of nodding and smiling and a few giggles here and there when he gets embarrassed. . .
Oh Man-chan, you're just so precious!
eva_lee wrote:I also have what might be a stupid question (forive me, I'm new) But what is this about Shinpei helping a girl pick out underwear??? Is this a video I can find somewhere? I almost fell off my chair when I read that.
Oh, that still kills me too eva-chan. I still can't tell if he was serious or not about that.
And as I recall, he won that little challenge too, so I'm wondering if he just made something up so he wouldn't lose to Manpei again X-P
(There's that unpredictable side of them coming out again)
SariLee wrote:My personal favorite is the proposals (in part 2). I totally think Shinpei should have won that.
I KNOW RIGHT???!!!
I'm still so shocked that Shinpei received such a low score on his proposal, was that lady crazy??
I mean, Manpei's was cute and very romantic actually. The words he said were very sweet but. . .there was no physical contact, no touching whatsoever *giggle*.
As usual, he was more expressive in his words while Shinpei was more expressive with his actions.
I understand how it may have been awkward for Manpei to touch that girl though (being a complete stranger). So I can kinda see that. . .but did you see how Shinpei just grabbed that girl and hugged her?!
Oh, that was so amazing!!
And I know that the culture in Japan is slightly different than it is where I'm from, but I know that for alot of American women, they like to feel special when they're being proposed to. That's why you see the guys getting down on one knee, and then ASKING
the woman if she'll marry him.And afterwards share a hug and/or a kiss
In the case of Japanese guys (as with Manpei and Shinpei)I've noticed that they say to the girl "Let's get married" instead of giving her a choice.
I'm not saying that it's bad, I just find it. . .interesting lol But then of course if either one of the twins TOLD
me to marry them. . .I gurantee you we'd be "man and wife" by the end of the hour.
And our marriage will have been consumated at the end of two hours.
(Me and my sister the other day got into a big discussion on how Japanese people have a different version of what it means to be "dating" someone, but I'll go into that another time).

You know, I really think that any girl who even THINKS she has a chance with Manpei will have to pass an interview with Shinpei first. . .lol
I saw his expression that you mentioned, and like with the time when Manpei walked in the classroom wearing the dress. . .I really couldn't tell what his face was trying to say.
You know how sometimes people look really mad/serious when they're thinking really hard about something? (I do that alot) I thought that may have been a possible reason. Maybe we was thinking about how he could "one-up" Manpei when his turn came?
Or maybe he WAS getting jealous/possessive lol I just know what I thought he still looked cute, because his chubby face puffs up even more when he pouts. . .X-)
Um. . .I'm working on another Takagincst story as well as trying to round up some pictures for a Geki Blue tribute *clapclapclap*
The story will probably come first, since I usually only write those when I'm sitting in class during lectures. . .hehe The minute it's done, I'll post it, but the video probably won't be up for another month or so.
And just think. . .LESS THAN 2 WEEKS UNTIL THE OURAN MOVIE PREMEIRE!!
I wonder if Manpei will tell his fans about it when he goes to see it?
