61st Single Offline Talk Event - Pacifico Yokohama 5/6 (part 2 - slots 5-8) After a quick late lunch I continued with the meetings: Hidaritomo Ayaka I'd barely introduced myself and told her I loved her big smile when I was unceremonioulsy pushed out quickly by the staff member even though there was no-one behind me. At meeting events I always seem to suffer one aggressive staff pusher who tries to assert himself and unfortunately that happened today when I met Hidaaya. Anyway she was very lovely and we spent a couple of seconds exchanging 'hearto' signs while I was just outside her booth. Mizushima Miyuu Mizumin was also wearing a seifuku but a different style to the one which Kokko had. She gave me a very nice reaction when realised she remembered me from the KKS Theater show audience a few days earlier! Of all the 17ki members she seemed to be the most enthusiastic about meeting fans and she showed an interest towards everyone ahead of me in her lane. Yamauchi Mizuki Zukkii looked very pretty in a white outfit. I’ve had online meetings with her of variable quality but this offline one went rather better and she was in a very happy mood. Komiyama Haruka As I've already mentioned in her thread my kami-oshi remembered me from online talks and she was very, very lovely, friendly and beautiful. She complimented me on my speaking Japanese and she said she hoped to see me again online. It's obviously more difficult for us overseas followers to establish a good fan relationship with our oshimen but I feel I have the best possible one with Komi. Omori Maho Mahopyon looked very pretty and very cute, and she was chatting happily with her fans in front of me. However for some reason my meeting didn't go so well, maybe she didn't understand my Japanese or it could be that I didn't recognise the plush animal she had with in her booth (it might be the one which appears in her Twitter header picture?). Anyway it was still great to meet her. Gyoten Yurina I was then due to meet ex-Eito member Ayane but following a late message on the official blog that she'd be absent (sadly she's tested positive for Covid) I quickly transferred her tickets to Yurina. I've long considered her to be beautiful but she looked absolutely stunning close up and it was great to meet her and to compliment her on her beauty. The next member I was due to meet, Yuzu, was also absent (however she's recovering well from a longer-term illness) and I decided to split her 3 tickets across two other members: Chiba Erii I’d spotted her looking at me while I was in Maho’s lane adjacent to hers so I decided to meet her and use 2 tickets. I said I subscribed to her YouTube channel and I thanked her for including English subs on her videos. She was yet another member who looked very pretty close up. Muto Orin I used the remaining single ticket just to say 'hi' to her and I thought it would be a simple short meeting but it was quickly obvious that she was very interested in me! As I left her booth she shouted after me in English "What’s your name?" I replied with "David - Debido-san". However she still wanted to talk but this was delaying her next fan who was already in her booth and the staff member sternly said "Time’s up!". I'm now kicking myself that I didn't get more tickets for her! Okabe Rin For me, Rinrin is the second most beautiful member in the group after Komi and indeed she looked absolutely gorgeous wearing white. I told her that she had been my favourite member in Team 8, that I’d enjoyed the concerts and I wished her well for the future. She has a lovely gentle personality and a very beautiful smile. Sakaguchi Nagisa Sadly it was time for my final meeting. In online talks I've found that Nagi is very charismatic and and she's also very expressive with her hands making love signs with her fingers which she did again today. She’s a very sweet and lively person and she made a great end to the day. And indeed it made a great end to my vacation. I was very lucky with the event’s scheduling, it was announced after I’d booked flights and hotels, and it just worked out that it was in easy reach of the hotel I’d booked near Haneda Airport. Ideally I’d liked to have spread the talks over the second day, doing it all in one day was a bit crammed but it all worked out well. Even though the members were behind screens I felt I’d definitely met them in person and it’s so much different and better than online talks. I can't wait to return to Japan and maybe next time fans won't have to wear face masks - for me it's not so bad without handshaking but I do love to be able to exchange smiles with my oshis!
