From his blog, November 2007:
“He totally looks like a sexual black panther. (lol)”
(It was a photoshoot for Alice Nine calendar(?), Cosmic World era)
From Junon magazine, December 2012 (thanks graphicabyss):
“Since Tora has a very strong sex appeal, even though I could see it since the time we met as teenagers to somewhere around our late twenties, I still see it the same way I did back then. (lol)”
* If you remember anything else, feel free to add it here. My brain is so toasted thanks to Shou’s photo-posting-mistake just now…
There was a radio programm 2008 in which they talked about 蝴蝶兰 which was summed up by chimerari on lovely LJ.
“1. Butterfly Orchid was composed by Hiroto
2. Butterfly Orchid is actually Hiroto’s father’s favourite flower…
3. While he was composing this song, Hiroto decided to take a stroll, and out of all ppl, he bumped into Shou in the streets..
4. The flower butterfly orchid itself symbolizes quite a few meanings: 「幸福が飛んでくる」「変わらぬ愛」「清純」「あなたを愛します」
which can be roughly translated into [may happiness reach you], [a love that never changes], [innocence/purity] and [I love you]”
Obvious Alice Nine members are obvious.
