* "Lessons" is my best translation for the concept of naraigoto, which we don't really have in English. It has sort of the connotation of the extracurricular activity you choose to pursue just for yourself. Usually in Japan, it's a musical instrument or something like dance or drawing or calligraphy, separate from the sports clubs done at school.
** This is about 3 million dollars.
***1467 to 1573 CE, the "Warring States" period of Japanese history.
✝ This is the Japanese title of the book My Father's Drago by Ruth Stiles Gannet.
✝✝ Pretty sure that Reia is making fun of the way they phrased the question, using "signature move," which usually implies something to do with martial arts.

Also, I watched King & Queen & Joker last night and OH MY GOD I don't think I've ever had such a wholly positive reaction to a Sexy Zone PV and making in like… ever? I need to watch it again before I can rave on here thoroughly, I think, but oh my god. Also who else caught that amazing loving look between Jinguji and Reia in the making? ♥♥♥
Current Mood: pleasedpleased
Current Music: Sexy Zone//King & Queen & Joker

This is so cute omg. Bringing his skateboard to a deserted island XD And his love for Tego, and his friendship with Fu~ Also, I wonder if he and Jinchan ever watch Star Wars together... XD I definitely need to use his ticklishness in fic or rp now, and I'm totally going to be listening to Share~
ミランダ (大丈夫): Reia: love me?faded_lace on May 17th, 2014 05:06 am (UTC)
His love for Tego is awesome |D Reia, you should start biting people. And ahaha aww. They can combine their nerdiness and watch the Star Wars animated series together. I still think Reia started liking Star Wars because he has the same name as a main character…

And we definitely need to write his ticklishness into something~
S: Jinchan: I look so goodyomimashou on May 17th, 2014 06:53 am (UTC)
Yeah, I really hope that's why he started liking it XD But it'd be cute if they did watch it together |D
ミランダ (大丈夫): Reia&Jinchan: ♥faded_lace on May 17th, 2014 07:39 am (UTC)

ミランダ (大丈夫): Reia: love me?faded_lace on May 18th, 2014 01:20 am (UTC)
You're welcome, thanks for reading. ^^

Reia and Fu are really close friends. Fu goes to Clarke with Reia now that he's in high school, and there's a lot of paparazzi photos of them together. ^^

I own the CD, but the King & Queen & Joker making has been available for a while now on the Sexy Zone community here. It's member-locked, so you need to join the community if you haven't already.

Aww, Reia~ I feel your super-ticklish pain T.T It's the worst.

And of course he bought a rose-patterned hoodie |D I read that and my first thought was "girls in hoodies club"

Yup |D;;; Duh Reia is the newest member of Girls in Hoodies XDD
