And so, with no further ado, on to day one!
It seemed right to start out with Reia, because though he's the most recent of my favourite things, he's been making me ridiculously happy for the past few months. I love how talented he is at dancing, and at skateboarding, and I love how he can combine those skills together in Johnny's. I love how he's stuck it out for a long time working hard in Johnny's now, ever since the Snow Prince days. I love how cute he is, and how unabashedly cutely he acts, regardless of the fact that it might seem weird to others. I love how he's himself and doesn't try to put on a fake front just to seem cool or get more fans. I love how he clearly knows when he's being asked to do things that are silly or ridiculous, and the face he automatically makes when he's embarrassed, when he sticks his tongue out a little. I love how he's teasing and pokes fun at his friends, but at the same time picks up after them (like when he repaired the step for Jinguji on Johnny's Junior Land) and looks out for them. I love that he refers to himself as an otomen. I love that he's proud of his pale skin. I love that he looks up to Tego and wants to wear his pink sparkly yukata from Nagisa no Onee-samaa. I love that he loves every second of being onstage, and I love how that joy shows through in all of his dancing and performing.
Thank you for making my life a little brighter, Reia. ♥ これからも頑張って下さい！
