I’ve gotten so used to shaking hands with Nacky that when I go shake hands with other members, I can’t help but be amazed at how much they’re trying to suck up to and curry favor with the wota.

I admire the wota who can get so into a conversation in such a short window of time, but I admire the members even more. All the wota speak to them about wildly different things and they have to be able to answer them in an instant. They must be really quick-witted.
132: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/09/06(日) 09:58:52.75 0.net
I think they can pretty much tell by their outward appearance what each wota is going to say. “Ah, this guy probably wants to be recognized” or “this one wants to talk about hobbies” or “this person wants to talk about the concert.“

The member who you can have the most pleasant, feel-good conversations and handshakes is hands down Kanatomo. You can tell she’s really smart, and not in the typical hostess way either.
137: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/09/06(日) 10:00:00.31 0.net
She doesn’t suck up to the wota at all, and yet she leaves a really good impression. She’s really kind towards me despite me being an Uemura oshi.

All jokes aside, the only times I ever felt like I’d reached nirvana during a handshake was with Fukumura Lock and Miyamoto. They were both super high-speed handshakes, though. (laughs)

On average, I always have great interactions with Yuka-chan. But this one time just before a Hello Con, I said something to her about how fun Hello Con is because you get to see so many different groups, and just for a fleeting moment I could see her giving me this really angry look. (´・ω・｀)

That was calculated. Juice never says stuff like “please come and see us at Hello Con.” If anything, they’re focused on trying to snatch away fans from other groups.

When you reach my level, rather than the handshakes themselves, I get the most joy out of observing the members at the end when the wota are all busy running around looping. Girls like Oden and Reirei start to dance when they’re getting bored.

Some time ago when I attended a JJ individual handshake event, I was looking at the lane next to mine and I saw Miyazaki talking to this wota who looked like he had some communication issues. She inched her head forward, stared at him from below and said “why won’t you look at me~? My face is this way!“

Kanatomo and Yamaki give the two best handshakes in Hello! Project. You don’t feel like you’re doing anything gross at all. It’s just an honest, feel-good handshake that makes you feel glad you went.

I’ve posted this in several threads like this so some of you may have seen this already, but the first time I went to shake hands with Chel, I was so nervous that I forgot everything I was supposed to say to her. When she saw that, she looked at me with upturned eyes and said with the sweetest of voices: “Nervous? I know, right?! Me, too!” That’s when I knew this girl would be the end of me.

There was a thread about someone who talked to her about her solo DVD and she just went on talking even after the time limit. (She wouldn’t let go of the fan so even the staff were powerless to pull him away from her.) I’m going to shake hands with her again next time, so I’m looking forward to it.

I heard that Chel thinks in English and then translates that into Japanese in her head before she talks. Considering how she can still quickly respond to whatever anyone says to her, she’s definitely very capable at handshake events.

Not for me at least — though there is of course still a feeling of distance. But she will shake hands with you, answer your questions, and greet you with a smile.

At this event some time ago I thought Sayuki looked really, really cute, so when I told her that, she sort of got a little shy and went “what do you expect me to say if you suddenly tell me something like that…?” She was so cute.

It’s only through experiencing the cold interactions that you can recognize a really good handshake when you get one.
9. 名無しさん@ハロプロキャンバス 2015年09月07日 20:52 ID:KM4zN3FU0
I attended a Musume Seishun Kozou serial event. This was in Osaka, so I said “welcome back” to Haa-chin and she replied “I’m home.” Just tiny little things like that can make one feel really happy.
Henkka: As to what personally makes me happy… Being sucked up to? Psh, doesn’t work on me. Members acting cold towards me? I have better stuff to do. But members like Kumai-san or Take-chan who refuse to believe you if you tell them they’re cute or that they’re your favorite member, and yet, who act all jealous if there’s a hint of you liking someone but them…? Oh yeah.
… I just like girls with complexes.
I was at the pre-release event for Sukatto this summer and had a chance to shake with all of 15. One of the best parts was when I was telling Nonaka (in english) that I was from America and supporting her – she was really happy and spoke in english to me. Even better, Maria either recognized my mm in nyc t-shirt or realized to some extent what I was saying in English and she was just SHOCKED!
I’ve had handshakes with Berryz, C-ute, J=J and Country Girls.
i’ve had the best interactions with my oshi miya (who told me during the berikyu signing session in Paris that she remembered me from the Buono! concert and signing two years prior) and asked what my name was. During the handshake I gave my gifts to her (which was allowed) and she put on the flower crown I gave her and beamed at me.
Other great interactions I had were Captain, Maimi, Chisato, Yukanyan (who told me my eyes are pretty) and Yamakki who locked hands with me to the point of me having to be dragged away after I told her I’d wait for them to have a live in germany.
Though for the Japan-based interactions I probably had a really big gaijin advantage lol
I’ve had handshake experiences with BeriKyuu in Paris. I was very unlucky to have somewhat bad experiences with lots of members but the ones who were the most memorable are Chisa and Captain.
When I told I “love” Chisa she was smiling sooo bright and said something I didn’t understand. But her smile alone made me melt inside, she seemed so happy.
Captain was like a smiling angel, and so small and sweet. I felt like she was so fragile but her kind smile made it seem like she was an angel haha.
Other good experiences were Airi and Maimi.
First of all, welcome back Henkka..
My summary for all the good handshake person:
Fukumura : with her “Fukumura lock”, seems sweet with fans
Iikubo : good at talking, can read the atmosphere very well especially to fans.
Ogata : Probably same reason with Iikubo, good talker
Yajima-Airi-Okai : famous c-ute member, good interactions with fans
Nakanishi-Tamura : good interactions with fans
Kanazawa : surprisingly she is a good talkers (beside her S-chara) and can read the atmosphere too
Miyazaki : probably have special characteristic as “devil inside” when having interactions with fans
Miyamoto : Idol is Robot
Inaba : sweet personality, probably good talker
I only have had handshakes with MM 14 (NYC)..and I blanked out after Sakura & Duu (my oshi) lol but Sakura’s hands were so tiny, soft and fragile I won’t ever forget and DUU made the hand eye-goggle sign, meaning she had spotted me (head to toe orange!) during the live! So that was awesome!
but Miyabi did a wonderful thing in NJ when they came to America for the 2nd time…it was NOT a handshake event but merely autograph session…I tried to have an interaction with each of them, and struggling to find the words to tell Miya how much it meant to “us” that they came to America, it must have gotten through, because all of a sudden she just beamed happily and thrust out both her hands to me!! I was surprised but shook them and she seemed so genuinely grateful and happy…I won’t forget that!
The responses were throwing me off for a bit. I don’t think I’ve seen Morning Musume ’15 be shortened down to just “15” before.
I guess the only handshakes that I have had were with IshiYoshi at Sakura Con, although it wasn’t exactly a “handshake” event. Rika was jet lagged so I forgive her for letting Yossie do all the work. lol
At the Morning Musume ’14 live in New York, they led the handshake line with Sakura and she was incredibly nice. Everything you’d expect and more.
Maachan seemed pretty indifferent around the male fans, lol. I didn’t see any chairs piled up behind her but I assume they had staff posted near the exits ^^
Sayumi looked exhausted since the end of the concert and was pretty subdued by the time I reached her at the end of the row. It was good to see her, especially after I missed my chance to see Ai-chan before she graduated T_T
What really stood out, though, was how enthusiastic Ayumi was in engaging each fan. Even a non-fan (who I had given a spare ticket) noticed how much fun it was to interact with her and how genuinely gracious she had been.
Sadly that’s the limit of my own personal experiences with handshake events, but I don’t think one can really go wrong with MM as a first.
Really, any H!P group handshake event is going to be a fun experience, so choose one of your favorite groups and go! ^^
C-ute at Mexico City. It was a great experience, everyone was so tired and yet they were smiling and giving us their best attitude. They were all so very kind.
>535: Guy mentions a MM member’s interactions but puts an illustration of a Berryz handshake when they were little (did those events even exist back then? And did girls so young hold them?) with their Koi no Jubaku outfits and a creepy looking guy just finishing his turn… lol. That was random.
