It’s okay, you can stop resisting.

I like her, too. I want to give birth to a child like Maa-chan.
7 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/18(木) 18:16:13.21 0
Maa-chan really is cute.
8 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/18(木) 18:18:30.47 O
If I could, I’d want to give birth to someone like her, too.

When I first met Maa-chan, that’s when I finally got to know what it means when someone is so adorable that she truly fits the expression of “the apple of my eye.“
10 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/18(木) 18:24:34.69 0
Definitely. She’s just so helplessly adorable.

Her future prospects are so good it’s painful:

When you find a member that you like, wouldn’t it normally make living more comfortable?

If it’s real, head-over-heels love, it’s painful and heartrending. And if the object of your love happens to be an idol, you know that it will forever remain an unrequited love.
15 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:34:45.22 0
In my case, I just spend all my time thinking about the fact how cute Maa-chan is. This is the first time I’ve ever felt this way towards an idol.
16 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:36:44.28 0
I definitely get that feeling.
19 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:39:53.95 0
I can’t say I love her in a romantic sense, and I don’t love her as a child either. I just love her as a human being so much.
20 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:43:48.57 0
I get that. She’s just a wonderful human being.

I want to be born as Maa-chan’s son and just live my life with my mother complex getting increasingly worse with each passing moment.

I used to have several oshi members, but I’ve now completely focused all my attention towards her. This is troubling because having multiple oshi would be ideal for me, and yet…
27 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:55:00.07 0
Maa-chan has lots of good points but at the end of the day, it’s got to be that face of hers that I love, and will always love from now on, too.
28 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:56:32.72 0
When I first saw Maa-chan, I thought I’d start supporting her because I liked her face. I couldn’t have in my wildest dreams imagined that I’d actually start liking her this ridiculously much.
29 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:57:26.68 0
She’s like family to me. Both the good and the bad, I like everything about her.
31 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 00:59:53.37 0
I didn’t think she’d gradually become more and more skilled like what’s happening right now. I’d like to think I have a discerning eye.
32 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:00:56.51 0
You don’t really realize it but she’s actually really good at speaking, too. She’s good at choosing the right words and she has a sense of rhythm as well.
34 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:03:33.37 0
I didn’t think much of her during the auditions, but when I saw the Hello Pro! TIME footage from Budokan, I instantly fell for her then and there.
35 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:04:50.00 0
I want a child like her.
37 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:07:50.37 0
It’s like there’s two extremes when it comes to Maa-chan: either you can’t stand her type at all, or you’re just completely in love with her.
39 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:11:17.99 0
I wouldn’t call it love. She’s not a romantic interest. I can’t find the right word for it, but it’s like I just can’t help liking her…
41 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:14:49.12 0
It’s funny how when Maa-chan inconveniences any of the members, I feel like I want to go personally apologize for any trouble that she’s caused them.
42 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:16:11.03 0
She’s the type of person that’s like a fairytale protagonist whose aunt and stepmother hate her, but who pretty much everyone else likes. There’s just this one group of people who dislike or feel envy towards her.
44 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:17:48.17 P
I want a grandchild like Maa-chan — even though I’m still in my thirties.

It’s like I’m witnessing a success story that’s not always smooth sailing, and it’s all unfolding right in front of me.
47 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 01:24:20.60 0
I do feel a bit worried over just how emotionally invested I am in her.
48 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 02:00:01.72 0
After I met Maa-chan, it feels like I finally kind of came to know what it feels like to have parental love for someone. At the same time I also became able to really start holding my own parents dearer to me.
49 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 02:04:24.27 O
Even when I’m sleeping, even when I’m waking up, I’m constantly thinking about Maa-chan. The time I have to spend away from her is painful. I’m always so happy when I get to meet her at handshake sessions or other events… I definitely know how you feel.
51 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 02:24:30.33 0
I don’t “just” like her either. I simply can’t stop myself from liking her so much.
54 ：名無し募集中。。。 2013/07/19(金) 02:35:10.45 0
Perhaps it’s not quite on the level of parental feelings for me. She’s more like a relative… someone I want to warmly watch over as she grows into adulthood.
Henkka: Although normally it may be customary for fans to make a conscious decision on who to make their oshi, people like >26, >39 and >51 give us reason to believe that this is not the case with Maa-chan. In other words… you don’t choose to make Maa-chan your oshi; Maa-chan chooses you.
