I’m a twentysomething woman and when I told my oshi I loved them, they looked so put-off by it. It might be a banned word.

It’s better to regret saying it than to regret not saying it.

When Risako was asked what she liked to be told during handshake events, she answered that it was “I like (or “love”?) you.” They’re not going to think you’re gross unless you say it in an especially gross way.

The other day at the Makuhari individual handshake event, I told Maria, “I became a fan of yours after seeing you in a magazine!” Right after saying that, I unconsciously happened to glance at her chest. Even Maria gave me a bit of a weird look for that one.

I’m 40. After a post-concert handshake event I told Aarii I loved her and she went, “Hehehe. You love me?!” I was being serious, so I was a bit shocked because it felt like she was making fun of me.

I used to be a fan of this underground idol, and whenever we met we would have this conversation:
Me: “I love you! Let’s get married when you turn 20!”
Oshi: “Let’s! Definitely!”
I bid her farewell at her 20th birthday event.

If you say it with a smile and in a non-serious manner, then it’s all right.

I remember once telling Eripon, “I love you!!” She smiled cheerfully and said, “Really? Thank yooou! (*≧∀≦*)”… By the way, Sayumin was my oshi at the time with Fuku-chan as the runner-up, but I was too nervous to tell those two anything except that I supported them. But for some reason, I was able to say it to Ikuta.
1. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年05月11日 02:00
You wouldn’t be going to handshake events if you didn’t love them.
Also, while I’ve been an H!P fan for 20 years now, I’m still only in my thirties so it’s nice to see that there are lots of elderly fans, too.

I’m an old woman in my forties and the other day I told three Tsubaki members that I loved them. The other two besides my oshi looked shocked.
20. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年05月12日 09:25
Just imagine how you yourself would feel if some old woman — the same age as your parents — was to tell you she loved you.
Always try to consider things from their point of view and you will easily find the correct answer.

Just don’t appear to be serious when you’re saying it.
Time to start practicing your smiles, everyone. (laughs)

I once told an idol that I loved her.
She pretended not to have heard me.
Maachan’s reaction when you tell her you love her is the best
what’s her reaction please tell me i have to know

When I told Maria, she went, “oooh!“
That’s pretty much a “What the hell do you expect me to answer!” lol
Considering there’s different ways to tell someone you love them, especially in Japanese, this can be both cute and creepy. If you’re doing a casual “XY-chan wa watashi no ichiban daisuki na member!” then the girl might be flattered, but if you’re going to confess your truest, deepest feelings it’s going to be super awkward. The girls know that, they probably see it on your face or hear it from the tone of your voice.
Which word for love are we talking here? Cuz I’ve defo busted out the daisuki to Eripon but I wouldn’t use the Big Words..
…also to clarify, I don’t ROMANTICALLY love her! lol
Checked the sauce, looks like it’s plain old “Suki desu.”
Just don’t be creepy, lol. Also that women who told 3 Tsubaki girls that she loved them and the ones other than her oshi looked shocked… I don’t think it was the word that was necessarily the problem but that she said it to two girls in addition to her oshi XD
I feel better that after Ayacho, there’s no H!P members older than me. I’ll keep loving H!P even when I’m an old lady. Seeing them happy working so hard makes me happy.
I can’t help but imagine that handshaking events are one of the less pleasant tasks for the idols :D
I think they can guess where those hands have been just before the event started.
This is why I only say it to my Sayu dakimakura
You can say anything to Sayu, she is a trooper.
Someone put together a montage of H!P girls reactions to fans declaring their love. I tried to find it, but oh well. Was it ever funny! Every one of them went from happy and excited to meet a fan to “get me out of here!!”
Handshake events are terrible, period. Fuck the 48 groups for normalizing it and HP for going along with this practice.
Imagine being a teenage girl and have to listen to that kind of stuff -and worse- from a 50 year old bald lonely man.
The idol industry was much better -and safer- when the best these people could do was buying a photobook.
I could see going to a handshake event and declaring your love to your oshi when you are 48 is okay, but only if your oshi is in their 40’s and still active as an entertainer and doing handshake events.
I can imagine Yuko Nakazawa’s reaction to such a confession! XD
So long ase everyone is polite and respectful, I think handshake events are fine. ☺
Unfortunately, people aren’t always polite and respectful. ?
What is your definition of polite and respectful? I mean, being an old guy and telling an underage cherry girl that you love her is not technically impolite nor disrespectful, but that is quite disturbing nonetheless.
Healthy men would struggle not to lower their eyes to their oshi’s chest. It’s hard when you already stare them assets on the PB. You tend to do it consciously. Plus, men are gross, the hand that they use to shake the girls hands, they used it to pleasure themselves also. I hope men will be less like animal, gay men are safe though. Don’t handshake with the girls if you fapped to them! That would be awkward and gross! I hope the girls will use perfume in the future, because they don’t really smell anything.
Handshake event is fun event for fans to meet their oshi.
By the way, I want to handshake only with Kokoro if she wearing the high school boy outfit only. Seeing her give me inspiration to wear normal clothes for men again. Men can be cute and not gross. If you’re cute the girls will happy to see you in handshake event! Please don’t be ugly and scaring the girls!
