I’ve never done so even once.

Just once. They initiated the conversation, but it didn’t last so we just stopped talking.

I once lent the person sitting next to me a penlight.

I’ve once been talked to. It was a guy from a famous university. He seemed cool enough.

I seem to get talked to a lot especially at concerts in the provinces. Do I seem that easy to talk to? (laughs)

One time I happened to be next to this guy who was just incredibly cheerful. Just before the concert started, it was like I was suddenly surrounded by a group of about 20 friends. It was a blast.

I do. We all love H!P, so it’s fun to get fired-up talking about it with other people.

I’ve done that at concert halls, but not live clubs.

I often get people saying hello to me like they know me, but I’m always left wondering who on earth they are.

Back when I was still new to the concerts, I got talked to all the time I guess because of how green I looked. Lately, I don’t at all. Even though I actually want it…

This person sitting next to me at Budokan talked to me.

I talk to people when lining up to the live clubs.

One time a cute girl wota talked to me. I was sitting at the center and she asked me if I’d exchange seats with hers — her seat was on the very edge of the same row.

I love talking to the people sitting next to me. I always feel sad if they’re just doing stuff on their smartphone or listening to something on their earphones.

I’ve been going for about ten years now, and I’ve only initiated a conversation with someone about five times — always the people who look like they’re not crazy. I just asked them who their oshi is and stuff. I’m a gloomy-faced old man myself so no one ever talks to me.

Live concerts are a time between me and my oshi. Why would I talk to anyone else?
24: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/04/13(水) 17:55:54.10 0.net
I’d say I talk to someone about once every 20 concerts or so.

My first time seeing current H!P was when J=J came to a live club in my hometown. I had some questions, and suddenly these two or three wota who’d come from Tokyo came over and very kindly explained to me everything I wanted to know. This made me love H!P even more.

At Berryz’ final Budokan concert, I talked to this guy for about 10 minutes about Berryz. That’s about it.

If the conversation goes on for too long the subject matter just tends to get too heavy, so I only talk to people who look a little bit sullen.

I’ve been going for 10-odd years, but I’ve only been talked to about twice. I’m too shy to initiate conversations myself, so I really wish people would talk to me more…

I prefer talking with people while lining up for the goods instead. That way we can just make some small chitchat while we line up, and after we’ve bought our stuff we just go our separate ways.

This girl from somewhere in the provinces talked to me, but our conversation died about two seconds in…

I always think about how I wish people would talk to me. But I’m no young’un anymore… I’m always jealously eavesdropping on the conversations of wota friends singing their praises about H!P. Once, just once, this person talked to me after a concert, but it came so out of the blue I was just caught off-guard and I kinda gave him the cold shoulder. But in truth, I was happy!
I’m always imagining scenarios of how I’d respond to someone if they had the same oshi as me but disagreed about something regarding her, or if I met someone with a different oshi who hated my oshi… Things like that.

Yes. Back when chemical penlights were still a new thing, this lady sitting next to me at Yokohama Arena asked me how to turn it on, so I told her. We kept chatting throughout the concert, had just a bit to drink afterwards, and after that…

I became friendly with this guy who’d come to see from the countryside. I felt shy when, at the end of the concert, he looked me straight in the eye and said “I liked the concert, but talking to you became a really good memory for me as well.“
Henkka: Henkka tip: if you’re like me and you’re kind of shy about approaching new people? Have some drinks before a show. It’ll make you give less of a shit. Best case scenario, you gain a new friend. Worst case? Well, there isn’t one — you’ve had some drinks now. It’s all good.
