Itano Tomomi and EXILE Takahiro definitive dating evidence?

18 Sep

EXILE‘s TAKAHIRO (29) and former AKB48 member Tomomi Itano (23) are once again in the news after Itano posted a picture of herself in her blog recently, only to have sharp-eyed netizens identify Takahiro in her picture as well. Apparently they had gone on a river play date before summer ended.

Itano reportedly deleted the picture to prevent news from spreading, but a quick-thinking reader took a screenshot of the image:

In this picture, you can see man’s tattoo-ed arm in the corner. He is supposedly EXILE’s Takahiro. Reports of them dating stretch back to 2011, when Itano was still an AKB48 member. Both have always maintained that they are “just friends”.

A closeup of Takahiro’s tattoo(as of 12th Aug 2014).

Also, the 2 were spotted wearing love bracelets from Cartier since July. You can see Itano wearing it in every episode of her variety show “Itano Paisen”, as well as in photos posted on her Twitter. Takahiro has also been wearing it while MC-ing for FujiTV’s morning show “Viking”, as well as in music programs.The bracelets are reportedly a gift for Itano’s birthday.

These details weren’t all that eagle-eyed observers picked up on. On Girlschannel, netizens have also been discussing Itano’s sudden change in breast size, speculating that she’d secretly gone for breast implants. This was sparked by Itano’s most recent appearance in “Itano Paisen”, as well as her bikini shot above.

Some comments from GirlsChannel:

“This one hell of a barbie body..”
“But she’s a plastic girl. Nothing weird even if she changed her whole body.”
“She’s overdoing it. Is she so inconfident about her looks?”


I’ve been wanting to post about their cartier bracelets for a very long time.Then news on ItanoxTakahiro piled and it’s time to release it once and for all. About her boob job, i have to agree it’s too unnatural!

Takahiro reunites with Miranda Kerr for Samantha Thavasa/Kingz CM

22 Aug

EXILE’s Takahiro(29) appeared at a press event on 21st Aug to promote his new CM with Miranda Kerr. Takahiro first worked with Miranda Kerr in this series of CMs, so this makes it their 2nd collaboration.

The 2nd collaboration was filmed in New York, and Takahiro described his scenes as one where he wanted to hug a beautiful lady crazily(?).

As the theme for this CM was ‘reunited’, Takahiro was asked about past loves. “When i was in elementary school, i dated my first love for quite a long time. When she moved away i wrote her a letter asking her to take care, on KeroKeroKeropi paper.”

After that, they were reunited through mutual friends. However, they had lost mutual affections for each other.

When asked about his ideal date plan, he said “It doesn’t have to be special as long as we spend fruitful time together. Compared to crowded restaurants, i prefer izakayas where the atmosphere is relaxed. It’s fine as long as the 2 of us have similar interests.”


I wonder how many people are interested in him/tomochin’s story?

Performances from Hey!Hey!Hey! Comeback Special

2 Jul

Fuji TV‘s music program hosted by comedy duo Downtown, “HEY! HEY! HEY! MUSIC CHAMP“, ended its 18-year run last year, but a special comeback episode was aired on 1st July. Lasting 3 hrs, artistes including AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, Yamashita Tomohisa, Kis-My-Ft2, SMAP, E-Girls, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, EXILE’s Takahiro, Kahara Tomomi and Goriki Ayame showed up to perform their latest hits.

As the show was filmed right after AKB48 5th General Elections, a special interview was held to talk about their post-election feelings. A game of musical chairs was also played to determine the center for Heavy Rotation.

Elections Talk Part

New Kami7 were asked to talk about their feelings
Matsui Rena: I was a fan of AKB48 before i joined SKE48, so it felt special to enter Kami7 as a fan.
Matsui Jurina: Shinoda Mariko said something about surpassing the seniors last year. I think i did it.
Shinoda Mariko: When i announced my graduation and the 70,000 audience started a Mariko call, i wavered and felt like telling them i was joking.
Downtown MC: Have you thought of starting a solo career?
Shinoda Mariko: I can’t sing, so i never thought about it.
Kashiwagi Yuki: The Kami7 now includes younger ones who are stylish. I don’t want to be compared to them.
Watanabe Mayu: We are an idol group, so we want to sing something bright and cheerful! But …since Sasshi is now the center, I’m worried what song will come next.
Takamina: I agree wholeheartedly. Afterall, this is also Mariko sama’s last single..
Shinoda Mariko: This is my last single, but….(looks at Sasshi). I wouldn’t like it if the last song is something weird.
Sasshi: I will ask Akimoto san for a good song….(Sheepish)
Oshima Yuko: Actually i wore my lucky swimwear underneath my costume on elections day. It’s a festival and  it equates to wearing swimwear…so i was prepared to strip if i got too high!
Downtown MC: You really love to strip don’t you?!
Sasshi: I was really confused on being the center. After all i was transferred to HKT48.
Downtown MC: Ah so do you still have a boyfriend?
Sasshi screams: No!!! (Everyone laughs.)
Downstown MC: Well in future you might find your costume missing, or one half of your shoes gone..
Sasshi: Eh?! That’s scary!
