Wanting to talk to them, wanting to be friends with them, wanting to be recognized by them — I just don’t get any of that. I think they shine when they’re performing up on stage, but off-stage, I see them as being just like any other girls.

Sure, they’re fun.

I’d like to go one day, but I live in the countryside so I haven’t been able to yet. More than the handshake, for me it’s just the thought of getting to talk with them in person, even if only for an instant… That sounds like a dream.

That’s what it’s all about.
This is what makes it fun.

I’ve only went once — I really needed to shake hands with Momochi.

I don’t care about being recognized. I just like how you can ask them about things they said on TV or in a magazine, or tell them directly how you felt about the show. Don’t assume that everyone who goes to handshake events just wants them to learn their face and become friends with them.

I have no idea why it’s somehow considered “bad” to want to be recognized by them.

I don’t think there’s anything bad about wanting to be recognized if you’re not being annoying about it. It’s something to talk about at least.

I’ve shook hands with normal actresses and models, but I really do think handshakes with idols are the best.

I’m personally not a fan of situations where you have to be that close to someone, so I’ve never gone to one myself. I do think people who spend their money to touch these girls are pretty amazing.

I’m going to Kobushi’s individual handshake event. Excited.

Ayapan, Minamina, Reirei.
Not that it’s my first time though. (laughs)

Tsubaki’s handshake events are easy since they’ll come up with all the topics for you.

Getting to shake hands with the same girls you’re always watching on stage — how would that not make anyone happy? Though to be fair, for me it’s enough to just do the quick handshakes with everyone at release events and stuff.

It really just feels like I’m going there to quickly say hi to them.

The clothes you wear are important.

Fashion does make for a topic of conversation. Though I’ve had them suddenly start talking to me about it and it caught me off-guard. (laughs)
118: 名無し募集中。。。 2018/10/23(火) 02:14:30.31 0.net
This. Your fashion is important. The Kobushi members especially will talk to you about your clothes a lot. It’s cute.

Ayapan and Hama-chan, once.

I don’t really need the handshake — I just want to see them up-close. I’m always amazed by just how tiny they are. And it’s just fun to kind of realize, “wow, these girls really do exist in this world.” I don’t care about getting to touch them.

I’ve been a wota for some 10-odd years now, but I’ve never felt the need to actually talk to them or shake hands with them. I often find that I can’t really hold a conversation with wota like that.

I do think there are some members who hate doing handshakes, so I was worried what my current oshi was going to think of me when I first started going to her handshake events — like, what if she thought I was gross or something?
But then one time her group was doing a joint event with another group, and when I went to talk to one of the girls from that other group, she told me that my oshi had said to her that she was “so proud to have me as a fan.” This made me like my oshi even more. To think that there’s an idol who would be so generous in her interactions even with some middle-aged man like me…

I’ve actually never been to one.
Maybe I’ll go and just try it out one of these days.
No one mentioned cheki events are also that fun to attend (go) to? *sigh*
They’re alright. I did enjoy meeting Angerme at Sunshine City. Well, mainly Moe made it exciting. She kind of went a little crazy, when she found I was a foreigner. She jumped a little and started screaming,”Hello, Hello” in English. The other girls beside her were all like,”WTF is wrong with you?”
handshake event is an abomination. at the very least the company should make sure that only 18+ girls can participate
Nah, I prefer spend my hard earned money to touch Funakki or Nanami. They’re so cute irl.
Ya, they’re ridiculously cute and tiny.
+18? Do you consider shaking someone’s hand a sexual act? Are you muslim?
They should be abolished.
(◕ᴗ◕✿) Friendly reminder: If you are applying modern American cultural values to Japan you are a cultural imperialist.
I suppose there are pros and cons for the idols. It must be fun to meet some of the fans – the interesting and/or polite ones. But it must be difficult to remain interesting and interested after a long day.
It’s hard to remain interested in any job if you’re doing it for many hours.
As a woman, I find it awful. As a fan, I THINK IT’S GREAT!! I ACTUALLY GOT TO TALK TO KARIN-CHAN <3
It’s enough to skim thru these comment section to know how detrimental female fans were and still are to H!P fandom.
They aren’t fans. They just need fresh ground to bitch about politics.
Uhuh, keep pretending those were real female fans and not male fans trolling the comments section thinking they’re so funny
dang the weirdos got really mad huh
Middle aged men just love shaking hands with teenage girls. Nothing wrong with that.
i guess he failed to see the sarcasm in the above post lmao
Well, when shaking hands with the girls is pretty much the only contact with the opposite sex they will ever have it’s clear why they’re so passionate about it.
that’s sad :( I feel bad for these socially awkward men, because they know that nobody really likes them, or wants to touch them, so they have idols do the job
Is there a bot that you can use to up vote or down vote a post 100 times, just to look cool?
Might be just opening 100 private windows and upvoting once in each
Oh I see. I thought this was a group effort or something but in the end it’s just the work of one really sad incel.
When J=J did the World Tour in 2017 they also did handshakes, so as a person who went to one of them (and would never have a chance to go Japan to participate there) I think it’s fine going once… However if I had the chance to keep going I’d feel intimidated and bored, I guess.
I also think those bus events happen more chances to interact compared to handshakes, plus they have other activities, so it seems better.
