[Arashi] Jun in AnAn 08.01.09

Jun comments only!

Doing this because it's really short, and I literally have 2 hours to kill in the airport. *weeps*


Matsumoto Jun meets girl!
4 fashion rules
that grasp victory in romance.
Matsumoto Jun-san and Nomura Masashi-san will navigate through the fashion styles that have mixed in 2008's latest trends.
Using view points that only men can provide as reference, let's aim to be a victor in love.

Parts with see-through are forever your killer items.
"Transparent materials reveal a woman's sensuality. It's NG if it's too transparent but, if you conceal your skin appropriately then there's an impression of sophistication. The balance with the man wearing black and the woman wearing purple is also O*. A couple that goes on a date with clothes like these are wonderful." (Matsumoto-san)

Wear hard items in a lovely manner.
"Women who wear leather fashionably are great. There's an impression of hardness and they may seem tough but, if you combine that with brightly coloured short bottoms, it'll turn into a cool and cute feel. I really like this style." (Matsumoto-san)

(Words cut off, sorry ^^;;)
"Just taking in air together, without doing anything.
If it's with a person I like, that alone is enough to make me happy."

Those who wish, "I want to be a girl who can bring about happiness to a man"
How on earth should they behave to achieve that?
Representing all men in the world, Matsumoto Jun-san who's flourishing in great prosperity now
has answered that question with honest feelings that he doesn't usually put up.

A woman who makes you want to take deep breaths
Frankly, I'm not really clear about the type I like. I don't have requests that determine what my lover should do to me to make me happy either. After all, if you're really with someone you like, that alone is already a blessing. For such times, don't you take deep breaths somehow? (laughs) And, you'd want to sigh with a "haahh~". I like that sensation, where it feels like your entire body is feeling happiness. To be able to think, "Just being by her side makes me happy" without having to do a performance or anything exaggerated, that's the happiest thing I think. And, if you feel that your partner thinks that way as well, then you'll be happy right. This is really just my own opinion but, when a man takes deep breaths next to you, surely it's alright to think that, right now, you're bringing happiness to him (laughs).

A woman who expresses herself through sensations
A smart woman can't show her concern for her man in a way that's easy to understand. Without serving the food at the dining table, distribute it to everyone only after you've separated each portion at the corner of the table. When you push on a man's back as well, don't hit it really hard, but stop your hand just enough to barely touch his back (laughs). That sort of thing conveys well to a man in terms of sensations. There are times when words can have the opposite effect too. For example, when I'm really drained, I don't want to be told, "Do your best". After all, I'm already working hard because I want to do my best, and I'm depressed by that result. How about showing the way you work real hard at something, without saying anything. If it were me, I would definitely feel encouraged, and would want to work hard again.

A woman who has strength
There's no standard rule that states an action you have to take to make a man happy. I think a person who can react to the subtleties of a situation and perform several actions is wonderful. Even if we're going out, instead of having the man lead constantly, a relationship with even moments, where I give in to my partner, is good. For me, I basically want the person to tell me her opinion properly but, a person who can stand here for me at official times, or who can change her reaction depending on the situation, will make me feel that she's intelligent. I mean a person with modulation I guess. Someone who holds many sides to her, will make it a more fun stimulation for both. A man who can date a girl like that is happy, and the man will naturally want to make the girl happy as well.

*O - circle means 'good' for Japanese

I get all warm and fuzzy when I read Jun interviews... he's just refreshing and very considerate in interviews (what I'd give to interview the guy someday. hehe)

Thank you for translating

He'll be so serious and yes, considerate. *___* Very different from interviewing, say, Nino. *snrk*

You're welcome!

Wow...I'm impressed! There's *craftsmanship* in his answers maan....just by reading it I go "haaaah" too, hahah! ><

I reserve my judgements about his female fashion sense though...sounds like one of those Japanese fusion snack foods that just totally don't go.

Thanks for the translation! =)

*LOL* Japanese fusion snack foods... in terms of his heavy + light fashion style? XD Well, he's looking at it in terms of a male perspective as opposed to a female one, so it's more about what a man likes than what a woman should wear I guess. *grin*

You're welcome!

Thank you for the translations <3

Jun always has sweet and considerate responses in his interviews.

I saw that magazine the other day and I was staring at the pictures and screaming to myself "why can't the Japanese use more kanji?"(I can only read some Chinese kanji) So it makes my day that someone lovely like you can translate.

You're welcome!

Ooooohhhh! The fact that you can read kanji is already a big plus with the language. *grin* Sho's interviews should be a little easier, since he tends to use advanced words that do have kanji. XDb

Sweet. Thank god for Keio.
I should pay more attention to Sho's interviews. *blush* It's not that I don't love him but I'm easily distracted by someone like...Jun.

*sigh* Jun really needs to stop talking in interviews. He makes me love him too much.
My absolute favorite line:
"For example, when I'm really drained, I don't want to be told, "Do your best". After all, I'm already working hard because I want to do my best, and I'm depressed by that result."
It makes him seem so....normal. Not uber cool, but just like a regular guy. I like that.

Thanks for the translations!! though, is it just me, or do Nino's interviews always seem to go in the exact opposite direction?? *smirk*

You're very welcome!

*nods* Jun's interviews are always such a joy to read, because he answers them so seriously, and his responses make him sound so very human too. Makes him so much easier to relate, right? ^^

Haha, nope, that's definitely Nino's style. XD Always keep the fangirls guessing and entertained!
