    Welcome back Rena-chan! I was wondering where you went! Onion Love

    Eva, thank you SO much for posting that! It's so funny to see how the director feels about our twinpeis! Although I'm not so sure about one thing. When he said Manpei was outgoing and talkative and Shinpei was stoic...I always thought that was the other way around.

    I am extremely tired so one more thing before I go to bed...you remember that video I promised back in January? ....Well I scrapped it Corner of Woe It was getting really frustrating because my Ouran videos were too high quality for Sony Vegas and they wouldn't show up while editing so...I made another video instead, focused solely on our boys! I heard the song and thought that it fit the two very well, especially considering how Shinpei got Manpei to join him in acting, so enjoy!

    (By the way, my original Ouran vid was going to be to "Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO, mostly just because I can't believe no one's done it yet. I'll go back to it later...probably.)

    Kobanwa!! (It's evening where I am Smile )

    Ah, as usual, so much to say and so little time. . .

    Rena-chan!!! Hug

    I've missed you this pass week or so! Sorry to hear that you've been so tied down by school lately.
    It sucks when school/work/life gets in the way of intense fangirling. . . Onion OTL

    But Rena-chan, your photo edits are awesome!!!! (As usual) Onion Thumbs Up

    And to Eva-chan, thanks for posting up the blog entry from the Ouran director. I've been waiting impatiently patiently for the entry when he talked about the twins!

    Although. . .I must admit that I was a bit confused by some of the things he said. . . Neutral

    Like. . .

    "ShinMan will sometimes synchronize but in reality they are completely different people. Manpei is very sociable while Shinpei is very stoic."

    I'm sorry but. . .didn't the rest of us establish on here MONTHS ago that it was SHINPEI who was the sociable one and MANPEI was the stoic-type?
    Did the director make a mistake or have the twins switched personalities?? Onion Sweat

    And also. . .

    "But if you really wanted a reason, the thing that left an impression was their eyes. Shinpei’s eyes were more piercing and strong while I felt so much kindness in Manpei’s eyes."

    Now this one just may be me personally, but I kind of felt like the director got it backwards on this one too. I always felt that Manpei's eyes were the strong and piercing ones (which is why I always go crazy when he takes those close up pictures of his face Wooby Onion Eyes ) While Shinpei's eyes seem soft and kind. . .to me Shin's eyes always seem to be dancing. Usually because I think he always looks like he's getting ready to smile or laugh. Very Happy

    I thought it was very sweet that Manpei wanted to spend his own money to see the movie. Since I am new to them I can't quite understand Manpei's personality, sometimes he seems very sweet and sincere and other times like a big tease and even other times like a brat. Sometimes he's very outgoing and other times he seems to hang back and follow Shinpei's lead. I just don't understand him lol.

    I thought that was so sweet too!!! That's pretty awesome, you go Man-chan!! cheers And trust me, if I actually had the option of seeing the Ouran movie in theatres, I'd definitely pay to see it with my own cash, no question.

    Although I just thought of something. . .how funny/awkward would it be for someone to be sitting in the movie theatre watching the Ouran movie, and then look over and suddenly see "Kaoru" sitting next to them watching the movie too! Razz

    And now that you mention it Eva-chan, the twins DO have really confusing personalities. But since Manpei isn't as direct about his actions and emotions as Shinpei is, that makes him even more confusing. . . Onion Stress Load

    And yes, I've also noticed that Manpei has his own "bratty" tendencies as well. Not that that's bad or anything, because we ALL have our bad sides, but it's like while Shinpei has his "bratty and whiny younger brother" moments, Manpei also has his "selfish and rude older brother" moments.

    People actually tell me that I have an "unpredictable" personality too, so I really can't point fingers. Besides, his kindness and flirtiness seem to out weigh his bad sides anyway
    Onion Starry Eyes The same for Shinpei too.

    But anyway, based on what the director said, the twins seem really really proud of their roles as the Hitachiin twins, and I still say that they couldn't have picked a better set of actors to play the Hitachiins!
    They just have this really deep passion for acting that I admire so much. They've made it clear that that's their primary goal: just to become better actors and learn and have fun.

    They're just too good for me. . . Onion Icy Breeze

    MOVING ON!!

    I've got some lovely pictures for you lovely fangirls to oogle at for the next few days. . .check it out!

    I'm putting this photo under spoilers to give you enough time to find perhaps a pillow or stuffed animal to squeeze and scream into (because that's what I had to do for about 10 minutes after seeing this photo).

    Continue on if you think you can handle the goodness. . .

    I KNEW IT!!!! I KNEW IT!!!!!! The twins like to sneak off together so they can make out, and they finally got caught!!!!! Onion XD Onion XD Onion XD Onion XD

    Notice how the chat bubbles say "Shinpei" and "Manpei" instead of 'Hikaru' and 'Kaoru'. . .

    Wow, okay, to start with: Everyone who posted pictures: Thank you! They were amazing! Especially the main Ouran group photo(I want to be the guy standing on the ladder holding that gun Smile The dolls were a bit...odd, but in a cute sort of way lol.

    Oh, and SariLee, I loved your video! The song was cute and fit those two perfectly. Thank you for sharing with us Onion Thumbs Up

    Oh, and Eva, THANK YOU for the interview! I loved reading those interviews and was eagerly awaiting the one about the twins. I agree with everyone: I thought that Manpei was the home body and Shinpei was the social butterfly. Hmmmm, perhaps they gave off a different vibe to the director? Or are we all just confused little fan girls? Yes, but that is beside the point.

    And thanks for the compliment! Very Happy

    Rena-chan, you've done it again! I love the way did that last Manpei edit! So. Cute. And so flirtatious looking! I think it was the blurred effect on it that made it great!

    Also to the newcomers! Do you have a favorite twinpei? I've asked this a long time ago, but I want to hear the new people's answers! Mine's Shinpei...as I'm sure will soon become apparent Onion Love

    I haven't been able to come to a decision yet since I'm still finding out new things about them all the time. I've fallen for different things about each of them and I kind of wish I could just go on like this and never have to settle on just one (*is greedy). I could tell them apart right away for some reason, though I still have trouble when there is an off camera angle or when they are wearing face masks (those boys are sick almost as much as I am!). I really like how energetic and cheerful Shinpei is, he seems like he would be a lot of fun to be around, but when I read Manpei's novels blog posts sometimes he's just so sweet I can barely stand it Onion Love

    I fell for both of their smiles, because even though they are slightly different they are equally beautiful. I agree with Mrs. Takagi when she said Shinpei always looks like he is about to laugh, or at the very least is amused. There's something mischievous about his little grin that I love. But Manpei's smile:

    Twins appreciation - Page 20 Tumblr_lz3uweNAY41r25z18o1_500

    When he smiles, I smile. I can't help it.

    How did any of you ever decide?

    SariLee your video is great!! I think that the song you chose was very fitting, and cute. I really like how mellow it is. They are so cute together I can barely keep from squeeing out loud while watching it.

    I also have what might be a stupid question (forgive 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.

    I think it's the ikemen show. It's in the forum under the translation page but since I don't want to waste your time and accidently got you lost somewhere Razz I decide to just paste the link to you here. It's got the translations so it shouldn't be a problem.

    https://ouranliveaction.forumotion.com/t236-ikemen-deru-housoku-variety-show-twins-2009-06-13

    And yes....how can you resist Manpei's smile? It's always so flirtious and..*mrrreow!* Cunning Onion Lol, can't resist there. But it's true! It's sexy, it's flirtious, it's everything that can make a girl loose her pants in 3 seconds flat! My friends actually fell for that same smile, and they don't even know him!


    They all agreed Manpei's very manly..and Shinpei has that girlish face. So in short;
    Manpei = hunk
    Shinpei = mischevious uke.....

    And I'm not sure whether to agree with them or not.... Neutral

    These are the videos we've been talking about (the translations are at the bottom, not on the actual videos)! My personal favorite is the proposals (in part 2). I totally think Shinpei should have won that.

    As for how I chose Shinpei...I dunno. Something about his brattiness is super cute. I've always liked fun energetic guys, and that's just how Shinpei is! Don't get me wrong, Manpei's cool too, but he's more the type I'd want to have a serious down-to-earth conversation with and Shinpei is more of the type I'd want to date (if only, if only.....I hope my boyfriend doesn't see this Onion Laugh )

    And you're right, something about their smiles is SO addicting!

    Also! I cranked out another video, cause I felt like this song really suited them as well. I wish I had thought to make it right after their grandmother died, because it's quite fitting for that kind of event, but now will have to do. I hope you guys enjoy it, I think it's better than the last one, save for this glitch somewhere at the beginning that I can't seem to fix... Onion T_T Don\'t Go

    And if you don't mind me spoiling you a bit, you can OBVIOUSLY see the posessiveness Shinpei has over Manpei. And that little glance they have with each other is to DIE for! Onion Blush
    And that's not even the highlight of our little Takagincest love story! I noticed that right after Manpei's done with his proposal, everyone was laughing, smiling and enjoying themselves, but Shinpei looks like he has this dark cloud over him, and it's not like this --> Rain on My Parade , but more like he's angry, or annoyed, or JEAAAALOOOUUUUSSSS!!


    Onion Laugh


    And THAT is exhibit 2 on our little Takagincest love story! Shinpei is NOT willing to share Manpei just yet to any girl. Heck, I don't think he'll ever want to share Manpei with any girls Cunnin Onion Idea . You know what they say, 'friends come and go but families stay forever' and all that.

    I shall now create a crazy Takagincest image in my head where it will permanently stay there and give me nosebleeds whenever I think about it.

    I'm so pleased!!

    I only wish Jade-sama was still around so she could enjoy watching the madness that she helped to create. . . Onion T_T

    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 Onion Bows

    Okay, now down to business. . .

    Sari-chan. . .I watched both of your videos and they're GRRRRRRREAT!! Onion Thumbs Up 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. . . Cunning Onion

    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,

    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 Cunnin Onion Idea

    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!!! Onion Love Eyes

    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??! Onion Anger

    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!!! Onion Starry Eyes 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. . .

    (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?

    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.


    You and me both, Mrs. Takagi, you and me both Onion Laugh

    But yeah, I know that proposals are a bit different over there, and the "Let's get married" line can seem a bit pushy, but I think it depends on how it's being said, because the girl still has a chance to say "Okay!" or "Not right now"

    But seriously, I watched Shinpei's proposal over and over and over again Headesk Sweatdrop I'll marry you Shinpei! And twins run in my family so there's a good chance that our beautiful half-Asian children will be twins as well!......okay I'm done now, this is getting unhealthy Onion Wipes Sweat, h not that I mind...my mind is a wonderful place right now

    Thanks for the compliments on the videos! I feel like I should somehow work harder on them because they only take an hour or two to make... Onion Bows

    As for Shinpei being the "bad boy" type, compared to Manpei I can see it. He's definitely played the bad boy role boy, and I believe that every actor/actress puts a piece of themselves inside the roles they play. (You could especially see that when the twinpeis were doing Hikaru and Kaoru).

    SariLee, great video! I favorited it on Youtube Very Happy

    Also, I am surprised that no one ever thought of Shinpei as the 'bad boy' type. Ever since this forum discussed how Shinpei seems to show his 'jealousy' over Manpei in situations, plus all the roles that he gets when he and Manpei are together(as Hikaru, that guy on Indigo Night), I always figured he was more of the troublemaker of the two.

    Oh, and Mrs.Takagi, if I was lucky enough to get proposed to both either (or both!) of them....excuse me( Onion Love Eyes Wooby Onion Eyes )....ahem, we would be married as soon as we could and then back to their apartment! Also, I am deeply interested in your dating thoughts, I am always fascinated by other culture's courtships and marriage systems.

    Please hurry back Setolove, we are all eager to hear your thoughts on the continuing story of this randomness Laughing

    lol just randomly coming here to say hi again. XD I'll be studying for another hour and then try to go to sleep. I should have more time after tomorrow's test since I've been working all day today and I'm almost done with the essays that are due this week! *feels proud* so I just need to edit those and yeah I'm just trying to finish my work so that I can fangirl properly. XD

    But thank you so much! This forum really does make me feel loved~ *GROUP HUG*

    Hahahahahaha my little scenarios (or theories) will have to do with:
    1. Why Shinpei was being shy and not wanting to do twincest stuff in front of everyone.
    2. Why Manpei is the one flirting the most now and is more willing to do those things in front of everyone.
    3. My thoughts as to why Shinpei said the whole thing about the underwear.
    4. Shinpei's look when Manpei "proposed" to that girl.
    5. That AWESOME pic of the Ouran movie guide (you all know which one ;D) and possible other scenarios in which they would both sneak off during breaks~~~~~~~~~~
    6. And random daydreams I have of them every day. XDDDDD (this one is a bunch of short scenarios that pop in my head)

    ...........Take care everyone! And keep posting and fangirling for my part too! 8D

    I almost forgot another thing I wanted to talk about!
    I guess it would be #7.....How Manpei is actually really possesive too~ Wink Manpei is just being a sneaky flirt. XD Or not so sneaky actually. lol

    Ok got to go now!

    lol and another thing I forgot to say!

    Seto-chan, you MUST quickly finish your work so you can explain to us these theories you came up with.

    I wanna know!!!! Onion Tantrum Because these twins have seriously been confusing me these days. . .just when I think I have them more or less figured out, they suddenly do or say things that just totally throw me off Onion Hypnotised

    thepinkbookworm wrote:Also, I am deeply interested in your dating thoughts, I am always fascinated by other culture's courtships and marriage systems.

    Ah, my thoughts on dating. . . Cunnin Onion Idea I actually have quite a few theories myself.

    Well, just as a heads up, I've never actually dated myself before (partially by chance, partially by choice) so all of my thoughts and opinions come strictly by observations and the testimonies of others.

    Firstly, I've been watching a lot of Korean and Japanese dramas these past 2-3 years, and I can honestly say that one thing that I seriously appreciate is the "slow-paced" relationships. See in Western dramas, people meet each other for the first time, and end up sleeping together within a few days. . .sometimes even that same day.
    While in Asian dramas, most of the time characters usually take time to let feelings of attraction develop over time (which I personally prefer).

    Also, something that I noticed in Asian cultures (and based on blogs I've read from Americans living in South Korea and Japan), they use the terms "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" more casually than Westerners do.
    Like here in America, a boyfriend or girlfriend would refer to someone who you are dating/going out with exclusively, and you have contact with each other regularly (seeing each other physically, texting, talking on the phone, etc).

    But from what I've seen and heard, in South Korea and Japan, a girlfriend or boyfriend could just be a person who you happen to like, and you hang out once in a while but you don't necessarily have regular contact with each other, physically or otherwise.
    And based on what Western women have said about dating Asian men, they're a bit "slower" and less direct compared to American and European men.

    Which I think explains how some Japanese males, even the handsome ones (including Man and Shin) are 'clueless' when it comes to girls, dating, romance, etc.

    Hm, I wonder if that could be considered an explaination for why Japan's birthrate is plummeting. . . Neutral

    Just yesterday I was watching this documentary online about these popular host clubs in Osaka (NOTHING like Ouran's Host Club by the way). And they basically interviewed the hosts at these clubs as well as their regular female clients, and it was actually pretty sad. . .

    I'm putting it under 'spoilers' since it's not really about the twins, so feel free to either read it or skip it. . . Razz

    Spoiler:
    So these women were willing to spend thousands of dollars (yen) to pay these men to drink with them and spend time with them and make them feel good because the women basically felt like they didn't have any other options; they worked full time and regular men didn't seem interested in them, and they just really wanted someone to heal them mentally, physically and emotionally, so they would gladly spend all their hard earned money on these hosts (who by the way, said that they made around $10,000 a month).

    And these male hosts were just as sad and lonely. They admitted that they would sometimes pretend to fall in love with their female clients, just so they'd stick around. So they'd have 5 or 6 ficticious "relationships" going on at once, but because of their job, they refused to get too attached to these women. That, and part of being a host was to consume large amounts of alcohol, so these hosts would work for like 10-12 hours a day, drinking champange and wine with their clients nonstop, and after doing this for weeks or months at a time hosts would end up getting violently ill, I think a few even said they started vomiting blood. . .pale

    So basically, after thousands of dollars/yen spent for hours and hours of entertainment and temporary happiness, in the end all parties involved just ended up feeling guilty and unsatisfied. No

    In the case of Man and Shin, while on the surface, you'd think they could pretty much have their choice of women (and they probably can) a lot of factors kind of lead them away from that option: their dedication to each other and their career, being too busy, and quite possibly just a general lack of intrest.

    Because contrary to popular belief, just being a person is single, it doesn't always mean that they WANT to date.

    Wow. . .that was a lot longer than I had anticipated. . . Suspect I'm sorry for rambling everyone! lol

    I actually would like to hear everyone's opinions on this matter too. . .so don't be shy and speak up! Very Happy

    Yep yep yep :3 Nodding For us, boyfriends and girlfriends don't necessarily mean our lovers, they can be used for our friends. Well, girls mostly use the girlfriend term, guys are just too shy (or trying to keep their cool) to call their friends as boyfriend.

    Maybe, but Tokyo is the largest city after all (I'm correct, right?) so I think the Japanese are just going through some serious birth control. Not to mention, Japan is a highly advanced country and their time takes most of their days. I suppose the reason they got married is because they want someone to complete their lives and support them when they need it.
    Even women there are just as busy as men. silent Wonder how Japan would be in 10 years time? Wonder how we would be in 10 years time?

    Man-chan updated, and in his picture he's wearing a face mask.

    Oh oh! I can answer this one! Cunnin Onion Idea We watched a video on this phenomenon a few years back in my environmental science class, of all things.

    It actually has nothing to do with the men, but the women! They're the ones who don't want to settle down (most of time). There were a lot of interviews in the video I watched and all of the women said that they hid no desire to be housewife (usually once people get married there, the wife quits her job to take care of the children), they said they would much rather have the freedom to stay out late and party and drink with friends then get married and basically give all of that up.

    A mom/wife's role in Japan is kind of different from what happens here (and this is based purely on what I have seen). The mom is expected to take care of the house, prepare all of the meals, do all of the laundry, get the children to school while making them a perfect bento (apparently, based on an article I read on stumbleupon, mom's kind of have a contest with each other to see who can make a better lunch for their child, and whoever makes a great lunch is a great mom, and whoever makes a bad lunch is a bad mom).

    So basically, women want to avoid that and continue to have the freedom to do what they want with their lives, because usually when it comes to tradition, the man controls everything (although I could NEVER picture Man and Shin being like that...for some reason they strike me as the equal rights type).

    But basically that's what I know, I hope that helped. Onion Wipes Sweat, h

    I've actually heard about that theory as well, and it actually does make a lot of sense. And as a woman myself, I can totally relate. I think the same thing is occuring here in America, women are choosing to either marry/have kids later on in life, or not at all.

    Until recently I really thought that sense Japan is so Westernized that the whole "women's roles" thing was out but lately I've noticed that they're still a little bit further behind in that category compared to the U.S.

    I agree, I don't see the twins as being on the 'chauvanist' side. At least for now, I really haven't seen or heard them say anything that would indicate that they had such feelings/opinions.
    I think the younger generations are more open-minded and flexible about things like that.

    [quote="SariLee"I bet they buy the same clothes just to be cute[/quote]

    I wouldn't doubt it Onion Drinks Tea But for the record, Shinpei did mention in his blog a few years ago that because he and Manpei have the same taste in clothes, they will often (unintentionally) buy the same jeans, shirts, etc
    It wouldn't surprise me if they share clothes too. It's not like they wear different sizes or anything. . .lol

    Man, I really should just stay logged on here all day just so I can keep up with all the stuff talked about on here.

    First, a little: I find it hilarious that on a fan girling site(just read the banner for it), where we drool over hot Asian guy's pictures one second, share theories about their 'home practice' the next second, and then we totally have a semi-serious discussion about modern marital life and women's status around the world. And then we switch back to hot guy pictures Onion Laugh Just seems funny and amazing how we can easily switch between fan girling and serious (normal) discussions. Sorry, just thought I would share that observation.

    And now for the serious discussion part: I have never dated or even come close to it, so I may be completely naive about things, but I think the whole Asian dating 'problem' may have to do with how over a couple generations of Japanese people, they have had a bit of a rebellious attitude. I just read some books about Asian culture and about an American teacher in Japan and it seems like Japan had such a loooooong history of traditional culture(arranged marriages, strict etiquette, etc.) and then the war happened, and then in the 60s it seemed like Japanese youth(like in American) rebelled against this traditional viewpoint and went in the opposite direction. And then you had another generation or two(our parent's generation) where they were still trying to 'morph'(wrong word?) with American culture so then things kept heading away from traditional families/marriage.

    And then, in our generation, you have the economical crises that destroyed the traditional view that you would go to school, go to college, and then get a job that you would have for life(getting married in the middle). Now, with people having to worry about how long their job will last, when they will find a new job, money issues, etc. I think that perhaps that may contribute to guys just not asking girls out until they are 'settled down.' Same with women in Japan and America: they want to get a good job and 'enjoy' it until they finally decide they are ready to give it up and settle down. Combined, you get the fact that Asian men don't feel comfortable dating/getting married, and women(mostly) who don't want to get married now anyway. Which means for us women who want to get married sooner rather than later(possible to Asian men) we are stuck.

    Wow, did any of that make sense? I had so many thoughts going through my head that I tried to type them out in a readable format. Plus, I have lots of fresh knowledge about older Japanese culture that I wanted to share study

    And now, for some fangirling: WHAT IS THIS ABOUT UNDERWEAR DRAWERS????????????????????????? Did I miss this discussion somewhere or was this a blog post I never read? Help! I must know the context of this idea or my mind will blow up Onion Anger Okay, I'm okay, but, yeah, if I could have a link or something or at least a direction to head in, I would love you!

    Haha it's true! You should have been here a while back when we all had a very lengthy discussion about the difference between Japanese and American celebrities.

    As for my dating experience, I've been dating an Asian for a year and a half now (he's Chinese but it's close enough, right...? Onion Laugh ), and he's pretty Americanized, but there are still some traditions he sticks to that are the same in Japanese culture. For example, when he's handing me something, he always hands it to me using both hands and won't let go until I take it with both hands (accepting something with both hands is big in China and Japan, it's considered rude to take something with only one hand). But really I think it depends on the guy. I'm sure Man and Shin each have their own dating style and know what they want in a relationship (but I can't seem to picture them being with any one JUST yet...I imagine they'll seriously settle down a few years down the road. They're still young), but yeah, I think everyone has their own dating style no matter where their from, and culture may or may not play a part in it, just depending on the person. Yeah, that's just my two cents Onion Drinks Tea

    About the underwear thing...Shinpei posted a blog a LONG time ago about how he was going through Manpei's underwear drawer (for reasons he never specified), and he found a "super cute" pair of Manpei's under that he took a picture of and posted Onion Wipes Sweat, h

    ...Oh Shinpei...this is why you're my favorite.

    Miss Bookworm, I totally agree with your comments of how on this forum we tend to magically bounce back and forth between fangirling, going on random babbles, and then talking about serious, completely un-Takagi related topics. . . Rolling Eyes

    But I kind of like it though, because all of you seem pretty cool, and I really like hearing your thoughts and opinions on different things, whether it's related to the twins or not lol

    Which by the way. . . .thanks for your input on the whole dating/marriage scene in Asia Onion Thumbs Up I don't know why I find all of this stuff fascinating but I really do. I guess it kind of has to do with what you were saying about Japan: Japan is a country that always seems to be stuck between traditional values, modern values, and then somehow blending the two together. The U.S. and Japan can seem so different at times and other times it seems like they have a lot in common, y'know?

    It's just interesting to me I guess (I'm a nerd like that Surprised )

    Oh that reminds me of a another non-Takagi related topic I wanted to hear some opinions on. . . .

    What is up with Asian men and their obsession with "cute and innocent" girls?? Onion Hypnotised

    I've noticed it in Chinese, Korean and Japanese media (especially in the tv shows). The guys always go gaga over the sweet, innocent, cute, naive, helpless girls. I've only seen ONE Asian drama so far where the main character falls in love with a girl who actually has some edge to her personality; a tomboy at that.

    (It's called 'Coffee Prince' and it is my #1 favorite Korean drama Onion Starry Eyes )

    And take Haruhi from Ouran as another example, even though Tamaki and the twins obviously were attracted to her anyway, they were always trying to get her to "dress up" and went nuts anytime they saw her in feminine clothing.
    And even in the Asian music industry, the cute, girly-girl bubble gum pop groups always get more attention than the groups with a more laid-back image.

    I myself, will dress up and slap on make-up, do up the hair and wear the high heeled shoes (but not TOO high mind you, I can't stand those. . .) but I'm definitely more on the boyish side: jeans and t-shirts for me all the way. Onion Laugh But it just sort of hurts a little to think that Asian men are "turned off" women who aren't hyper-feminine.

    What do you guys think?

    Ah yes, you must've missed that little discussion. . . Cunning Onion Long story short, in one of Shinpei's blogs from a couple of years ago. . . .for reasons that he failed to mention. . .he was apparently going through Manpei's dresser and found some "cute" pairs of underwear, which you see here:

    I'll try to look for the actual blog post again, because I posted it on this forum not too long ago anyway; I can't remember if Shin said he was cleaning or looking for something. . . scratch

    But yeah, he never really explained WHY he was in Manpei's room going through his dresser drawers in the first place, he just found a couple of pairs of his brother's underwear and I guess they amused him Big Laugh

    Two things that just occured to me:

    1) I wonder what Manpei thought of his brother posting pictures of his unmentionables on Shin's blog for all the (already hyped up) fangirls to see. . .lol

    2) I wonder if Man-chan makes it a habit to buy/wear silk underwear. . .because if he does, I'll be sure to add that little feature to my "Rated-R Manpei Fantasies" :3 Nodding

    Thank you everyone, the whole underwear thing makes more sense(sense?) to me now (and Mrs.Takagi, you are my favorite for actually posting a picture of said underwear Laughing However, where exactly did you get it from? Your computer??? Cunnin Onion Idea ). That is strange for him to be going through his brother's underwear drawer, and then posting a picture of it on his blog. Yet, it actually sounds normal for him to do something like that. We must really be into some twisted guys Onion Laugh

    And where was this lengthy discussion about American/Japanese actors? Was it on the older Twins Appreciation thread(because I read that and don't really remember anything about that) or on another thread? Sounds like an interesting talk.

    And, Mrs. Takagi: What is up with Asian men and their obsession with "cute and innocent" girls??

    No idea. I bet it has something to do with either their mothers(although that may be more aimed at men who like women who coddle and take care of them) or their own fatherly instincts(exhibit A: Tamaki calling himself 'Dad'). Just my theory.

    What are you talking about? They already settled down.......with each other!!!! *gets bricked* (kidding kidding~ ....wait, or am I? Gleaming Onion Eyes ) XD

    lol Razz Just randomly being here again. I'm planning on going to sleep in two hours but I'm taking a little break from studying~ Onion Wipes Sweat, h
    ........but then I'll go back to studying after this. XD

    Anyway, this thread is moving by so fast!
    Onion Skipping
    I love reading what everyone has to say here~ Very Happy

    I'll just briefly ramble about a daydream I had today. XD

    Ok so earlier today while going to my dorm room, I got off the elevator and I just randomly stared a the TV lounge area. (there is one in each floor of the building here) Then while looking at the black leather couches, my mind started daydreaming about Manpei and Shinpei. lol
    It wasn't really a new daydream since I was mostly remembering about a dream I had and then I was just adding things to it.
    Spoiler:

    This was set when Shinpei was still working on the Donden stage play.
    One night after rehearsal, Shinpei comes home a bit late and expected for Manpei to be already asleep. To his surprise, Manpei was still wide awake and he had a bowl of peaches on his hand while he was heading out the kitchen and into the living room. So Shinpei walks up to his brother and sits down on the couch with him. Manpei was going to start eating the peaches but instead, he hands them to Shinpei who happily takes them from him. While watching his younger brother happily eating the peaches, Manpei smiles fondly at him and starts caressing his brother's hair to which Shinpei just responds with a sound of appreciation. Just like a kid, Shinpei talks about his day so enthusiastically while still eating and Manpei just listens to him. At one point Manpei just stares at Shinpei and the look on his eyes is just of pure love and adoration towards his brother. (I really can't describe the look. This was part of an actual dream I had and when I "saw" this, I literally felt like I was invading their privacy or witnessing something very private. XD But it really was breathtaking the way Manpei looked at Shinpei at that point.) Manpei then smiled softly and leaned forward to whisper something to Shinpei. "You are too cute." After saying that, he just rests his head on Shinpei's shoulder and closes his eyes while continuing to touch his brother's hair. At that point, Shinpei had already set the bowl on a side table and just smiled happily at what Manpei told him.

    I want to continue but but but I need to study now. OTL There is more to the daydream. :/ I guess I should have just written this tomorrow instead of today but I couldn't help myself. OTL I'm desperate for fanfics that I can't stop daydreaming. lol

    Anyway, take care everyone~ Very Happy
