in defense of Moriyama Eiji  
Somehow, since coming to Japan, I've gotten a bad rep for hating Moriyama Eiji. And so I'd like to come out and say this:

I don't hate Moriyama Eiji!

Yes, that's right. I think he's a little bit of a creep, but really, when he's not pretending to be the "cool" one or acting "hipper" than the rest of *pnish*, I think he's really all right. Yeah, I make fun of him for being old, but I also make fun of Tuti for being bald, and I love Mizuki all the more for having an ego huge enough to envelope all of Japan and most of the Korean peninsula if it had the chance. I tend to make fun of people I like if I think their egos can take it (in other words, so many people put Wasshi down and he's so sweet that I could never do it), and just because he's not the "sexy" he was ten years ago doesn't mean I don't like him for it.

And there are times-- I was reminded by listening to Makenaide earlier, when he's calling out the lines to the audience-- that he's totally dorky and in sync with the rest of *pnish*, and I love it. There are times when he's a total weirdo, or when he sucks up to Daiki, or does something really ridiculously sweet for him, and I think it's adorable. I think he's a great singer, and his performances in Tenimyu and Burimyu were both admirable. And despite being 34, I think he did an admirable job with Ronnie in Western Mode.

So yeah. You're not going to hear me walking around saying how much I love Eiji, and, more often than not, you'll hear me calling him old or bald or ugly. But when it comes down to it, I'll still be lining up at the next opportunity to have him speak bad English at me and stare at my cleavage.

...unless he asks me "how much." :P Then all bets are off.

I thought it was Naru saying lines to the audience in Makenaide?

Yay, Eiji love!... Kinda! XD; Eiji not-hate? Eiji like?

Oh, I listen to the HappyPani rip version :D:;; So it's Eiji who yells them. Yeah, in Wonder Box, it's Ryou ^^;;

It is Eiji love, I think. I mean, I love each of them in a different way, and the way I love Eiji is an abusive sort of way XD;;;; But I don't think it's a bad thing?

Aha! I should listen to that version, then! Usually I only get a chance to hear Makenaide when I watch Wonder Box. XD

Doesn't sound like a bad thing! :D All those guys have faults, we just love them anyway! XD <3

Yeah, fencer_x put it up on the comm, I think. ^^; It's not great, but it's what I have on my ipod and has a little less of Daiki screaming XD;

Definitely! And I abuse Tuti and to an extent Daiki just as much XD;;;

Eiji yelling the lines during Makenaide is so much dorky love XD

Also, him and Tacchan crying at the end of Code 003 ♥

I know, right? He's so into it. And when he's yelling to jump when they say "magic" XD;

I knowwwwwww ;___;

Aww ♥
I love Eiji cause he makes me laugh when he wants to act so cool and hot XD
But it's as you said, I love each of them for different reason, and while loving them I love to make fun of them too :P
It's the way we express our love! XD
ミランダ (大丈夫): Eiji: sexyfaded_lace on November 24th, 2010 10:12 pm (UTC)
XD; Most of the time, his attempts are definitely laughable! And yeah, that's definitely the way I feel. I just wouldn't be loving, say, Tuti without making fun of his forehead! XD;;; Same goes for Eiji :3

I think of Eiji as the kindest member of pnish after he offered to give us his umbrella on a rainy day...
