I haven't even listened to this episode and I'm already answering the quesiton, but I guess it goes to show how much I like Nino xD


When I first got into Arashi the only reason I paid attention to Nino was because he played video games and his goal for the new year had been "To play 10 games a month and 120 games in a year".

But now, aside from video games, I think Nino is a really talented, hard-working guy. He's one of those guys that are kind of.. good at everything, or they pick up things fast. He's a excellent actor, singer, song-writer, he can play guitar, do magic and he can play video games 24/7 even during meetings and PV filmings. You don't really know much about Nino because he really seems to sepearte his "TV image" to his "real self". In Arashi he's the guy that gives the biting, sarcastic remarks, but sometimes he seems like the typical nerdy, quiet, "kid-next-door". You can't really pin-point what his personality is, or.. I can't at least.

Basically, to sum it all up, Nino's a really talented guy and to me, he's a real mystery, but that's why I like him so much. ^_^

OMG, FIIINALLLY another Arashi member!!! Geez, I was wondering where those were hidden. (*sings* "where have all the good men gone, and where are all the gods [idols]?...") I'm still waiting for Aiba. :P

Okay, my first impression of Nino was: none. I first saw Arashi in the Wish PV, and only Jun and Ohno stood out to me. Nino, Sho, and Aiba looked indistinguishably the SAME to me. But as I grew to tell them apart, I noticed how boyish Nino is. He is such a prankster, dry-sarcastic, the one who always chides the stupid people (mostly Aiba), who he has a low tolerance for. In fact, he picked SO much on Aiba I thought he hated him, but then I realized that they grew up together in Johnny's and even took the same train home. So they must be really close, despite it all.

I think deep down Nino's a very intelligent and talented man. He's also very creative -- like he knows how to play the guitar, writes songs, and is the second-best singer of Arashi. He is also a gifted actor, who is known for "acting with his eyes" (like MatsuJun). Although Letters from Iwo Jima was a boring movie. :P In one recent ep of AnS he looked SO effeminate, I swore he was a girl (even though I know he's not). And then yesterday I saw a clip of him from his new movie, where he looked and acted like Cassanova or Don Juan, I was like, "DAMN!"

There are so many dimensions to Nino, he's such a complex guy. I know he's very sarcastic and cynical when it comes to questions about love in magazines, but his songs and lyrics are so romantic... I can't help but believe that Nino just "plays" the cynic part, only, and deep-down believes in love.

Also, his teeth are adorably crooked, and his face looks like a cute puppy! ^_^

LOL, definitely agree that Tegomass' single was better than album release. Also, "Akuma na Koi" is just not the proper title, lol.
LOL Yassu, plays a really creepy(good) baddie, surprisingly.
I didn't really notice Nino until someone told me about "Niji" from the "Time" concert/album. Ever since then, I just can't help but think he is an amazing guy all around. The fact that he wrote, sang, and played the piano of it live was just so beautiful in my eyes:)
Not to mention, he is a brilliant actor and performer. He obviously fits well in Arashi, is hilarious and cute, and hard working.
His voice is also pretty great:)
