Women who can brag about themselves with class are the best!
When it comes to women and bragging, it feels like the topics they brag about are mostly limited to their possessions, their boyfriend, how rich they are, how popular they are, how great they look… that sort of thing. Right?
When there’s a girl by my side bragging about something, it’s probably safe to say I’m only pretending to be listening to them most of the time. I’ll be nodding my head while thinking about something entirely different. Or, I’ll be listening intently, trying desperately to find something in what they’re saying that I could use to steer the conversation in a different direction. I’m not alone — I feel like this kind of reaction is something that comes very naturally to men. That’s because there’s some part of us that just thinks, “what’s the point in listening to someone brag?” Maybe if it was a guy who’s exceedingly nice to women, or just really, really devoted, he might actually listen. And not only that — he’d probably praise them to high heavens.
By and large, however, most men will only think “mmm” in response. With most women, their bragging is just that: bragging. It doesn’t lead to anything; there’s no conclusion. That feels unsatisfactory to us men, and we’ll be busy struggling to come up with a fitting reaction. I sometimes wonder: if you’d just finished listening to some girl’s long-winded, boastful story and you were simply to ask them “…and?“, what on earth would their answer be?
Unstable women have an unpredictable future!
Folks who have their own set of policies in life are the people who, even if something about their fashion or their way of life or something else about them sticks out like a sore thumb, are able draw others to them with the sheer intensity of their personality. But total unpredictability — completely defying one’s expectations — is another quality that draws people in just the same.
To me, Morning Musume’s Ishiguro Aya is someone who has that sort of unpredictability about her. To put it in other words: I think Ishiguro is a very unbalanced person. If the average person was to take a look at Ishiguro, they might attempt to place her in a certain category. “Ishiguro is this type of girl.” But I believe placing Ishiguro firmly in any one genre would be a challenge.
On the outside, Ishiguro just looks like your average, pretty young lady. But she is not your average, pretty young lady. In a weird way, there’s actually something about her that makes her come across more like a middle-aged man — I probably wouldn’t be surprised at all if I saw her with a red pencil behind her ear and a horse racing paper in hand, screaming her head off at the race track.

We’re reporting to you today on Tsunku♂ who has currently become a hot topic on the internet. According to an eyewitness report, he helped an injured boy who had become lost. What’s more is, once the boy’s parents had been found, Tsunku♂ simply took his leave without a word.
According to Twitter user @bada_0422, the events took place at Ueno Zoo. Let’s have a look at how they described what happened:
Today at Ueno Zoo, there was this boy who’d become lost who hurt himself by falling over in front of one of the shops. There was a cut on his mouth. The person who helped him was none other than Tsunku♂, who happened to be standing just in front of him. Even though he can’t speak properly (sorry for the impolite wording), he did his best to look for the boy’s parents and to comfort him.
I’m sorry it took me a while to run over to help — at first, I thought they were maybe in the middle of filming. But afterwards, thanks to the help of the staff there, they soon found the boy’s parents. I wanted to convey what had happened to the parents, but they were in a hurry to get their son treated for his injury so I didn’t have the time to tell them. I hope that this tweet will somehow reach the parents.
And to Tsunku♂, who left right away, I wanted to say that they found the boy’s parents in no time. I was so moved by Tsunku♂’s kindness.
In short: Tsunku♂ helped a lost, injured boy, and then made his leave without a word. If this touching story is true, it’s fair to say that it’s an episode for which he should be praised.
It’s only natural to help someone who is in need of help when you see them. But if push came to shove, how many of us would, in fact, be able to carry out doing that said natural thing? Tsunku♂ actually doing the right thing and then simply leaving without a word… This man is simply the best.

As expected of our Terada.
Never underestimate an incomplete woman!
I have a minor problem that I’ve been trying to figure out.
It would seem that my taste in women is quite removed from the standards of most people out there. Whenever we hold auditions and I say about someone, “alright, this girl is going through!“, I can always hear the booing from the studio and the general public.
Thinking back, I’ve always gotten similar reactions even from my juniors. Whenever I had a girl I fancied in school, I’d mention it to my friends. “What do you think about that one? She’s pretty cute, right?” My friends would then look at me as if I was kidding. “What? Her? There are so many girls that are cuter than her. Why her of all people?” Even though in my mind this girl was absolutely the number one.
It’s true that I do have a large “strike zone.” I mean, I even like girls who aren’t cute. There were cases where I suppose it was no wonder my friends would dismissively call the girl I fancied by just “her.” Quite often, though, when I’d ask them what they thought of a specific girl, I’d be thinking about her not as she was then, but about how she might turn out in the future. As proof of that, there have been many examples of me setting my sights on a specific classmate or an idol who didn’t get any appreciation to speak of, who then went on to change into someone completely different. The more I hear people saying I have bad taste in women, the more confident I feel that I’m making the right choices.
I’ll give you an example.
Nothing affects men more than an imperfect smile!
The power that a woman’s smile possesses is truly remarkable.
There are many different kinds of smiles for many different kinds of situations. Each one of them can excite you, or tug at your heartstrings, or make you go “oh you little…!” and have you experience an overwhelming urge to just hug them.
When I come across a person with a pure smile that comes straight from the heart, I think to myself, “man, that’s so nice.” The smile a girl will have on her face when she wins at sports — is there anything better than that? And when it is a smile born under those kinds of circumstances, the person showing it is usually covered in sweat or dirt and they’re all messy. But even so, they just look adorable. They could be covered in mud for all I care — I’d still happily rub cheeks with them just to share in their joy. The smiles of the winning team at sports festivals… The smile of someone who’s just scored a strike when bowling… The smile of a person who’s eating something delicious and it just shows on their face as a smile. I adore them all.
Similarly, the smiles of Morning Musume when they took the first prize were so lovely. Me, I’m always the cynic — I could never be that genuinely delighted about it, no matter what sort of an award I’d received. “This isn’t going to last. There must be a catch to something as nice as this.” To someone like me, a smile like that would be impossible to replicate. I’m the sort of person who’d have to stare in the mirror, wondering “how does one smile as happily as that?“
You can see why I’m so easily drawn to those sorts of pure smiles.

@haroneiture: @tsunkuboy Wouldn’t you agree that all your songs as of late tend to be quite dark? I have to be honest: it can be a downer and it’s not very fun as a listener. I want Morning Musume to do the more cheerful kinds of songs they had in the past, like LOVE Machine and The☆Peace!
@tsunkuboy: Yep. But see, I do also offer them brighter, more fun material every time. (laughs)

I thought this was fake, but damn, he actually said it!

I wonder just what sort of hidden meaning is included in that “(laughs)” of his…?

It’s obviously a strained laugh. Like, “there’s nothing I can do about it.“

There was a clear difference between H!P and other idols when Tsunku was there. Now, there’s absolutely none. So then the question is: why do you still keep being a fan of H!P and not some other idol group? Answer me that — if you can.

There was no difference between H!P and any other idol group even when Tsunku♂ was there. (Sorry, was I not supposed to give a serious reply so soon into the thread?)

There are still the songs Tsunku left behind.

There was a difference when Tsunku was there. Tsunku was the producer and he wrote all the songs. There was something about those Tsunku songs that could really touch you, and that’s why I came to like H!P. But now? You don’t even know who’s producing them. The songs are all done by some no-name songwriters, and they’re all shit. This isn’t H!P.

Well, since you’re going so far as to ask me directly, I’ll tell you.
It’s because Momochi is there.
Lots of women are fun for play,
but when it’s time to marry…
Don’t you find that in any one class in school, there’s always that one girl who everyone calls “mother” or “mom“?
“Mom” is one of those nicknames that tends to stick even if the girl in question was to transfer classes. In fact, even if she changes schools altogether and is surrounded by people she doesn’t know, her new classmates will soon have adopted for her the nickname of “mom” just the same. The characteristics for girls like that tend to include roundish features, a light complexion, and a bright, warm aura. She’s also broad-minded, she takes care of the people around her, and she has a sort of heartiness about her.
Girls like that might not be terribly pleased about being called “mom.” “Why won’t everyone call me by (name)-chan?” “I’m only 16 years old…” But it’s really nothing to worry yourself over. People calling you “mom” is not the same as them calling you an old auntie. If anything, being called “mom” is a compliment — in fact, it’s a sign of popularity.
To begin with: all guys out there are more or less mommy’s boys. No guy out there dislikes a motherly girl. It’s often said that when guys begin to think it’s embarrassing to depend on their mothers, that’s when they first fall in love with someone. In other words, guys spend their whole lives in pursuit of a mother figure. When it becomes too embarrassing to rely on their mothers, they look at girls closer to their own age, unconsciously seeking for a replacement to their mothers.
And indeed: once more they are back to sucking on a breast.
