today marks the birthday of a very special neener
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NINO! :D



(Yay for GMT -5.00 timing! Always late to the party, that's us XD)

So a little over a year and a half ago, I got inducted into the world of rainbows and sparkles. And at first, it wasn't for Neens. Like most people in these parts, I got Jun-baited by HYD (though I didn't really like him in that either, I just got curious and went on Wikipedia XD) and well, one thing led to another and I became an Arashi fangirl.

What was the turning point for my viewpoint on Nino? To be honest, I'm not too sure myself. It might have been his acting (or just the roles he was cast as and looked mighty fiiiiiiiiiiiiine in :D), it might have been AnS (because he snipes at everyone and I love him for it), or it might just have been his beautiful musicianship (needless to say, Niji is in my favourites XD). But in the end, my mind had settled that yes, Nino was indeed my number one.

One of my favourite episodes of AnS is the one where Higedanshaku (spelling?) goes on and Yamada Rui the 52nd complains about how his girlfriend is a huge Nino fan XD That cracked me up so much. And then Nino just went and stole the show, being the brat he is. What I love is that he might be all snarky and bratty, but in his interviews Nino reveals the other side of himself - the contemplative one, the mysterious one. It keeps me guessing, and it keeps me interested. And honestly, he comes up with good quotations in those :) Oh, and how he sang for the couples each time he went on MMA? Adorable.

Nino has pretty much become the archetype for my favourite kind of idol. When I look at my other idol fandoms I can see bits of Nino in each one, and I can't help but make that comparison. XD That's pretty much how much he's affected my state of mind. And really, I do love him for it. :D

May you continue to game on, be snarky and musical, and stay young! The 'eternally 17' moniker really fits, haha. (Seriously, his face doesn't change!)

Oh, and I forgot to tack on my gift!



I hope your ears don't bleed.
