This is almost useless news! Sashihara Rino reveals an interesting complaint from fans who attend theater performances, and other interesting armpit-related stories.
On a recent episode of Japanese TV show, “Momm!!”, Sasshi reveals one of the more interesting complaints that fans send over to the management: that, my friends, of our beloved idols armpits.
First, a mini Japanese lesson:
ワキ（waki) → armpit
Very useful vocabulary!
According to Sasshi:
“During theater performances and such….”
“… we’re in really close proximity. And we do a concert everyday”.
“So some of the fans say….”
“So-and-so-chan’s armpit hair have been growing. Please tell her to be careful of that.”
I guess fans like less hair in armpit? I didn’t even notice. In some darker regions of the internet, that’s quite a fetish!
There’s also a very interesting video (Japanese only, sorry), where Sasshi describes some of the armpit-related stories:
Some of the more interesting ones:
- Members are more careful shaving their armpits before theater performances. Lots of sleeveless outfits!
- When Sasshi appears on a variety show, she is less careful. However, if someone really cool or handsome is going to be a guest, she shaves.
- Members hold “hair pulling meetings”, when they need help pulling hairs from each others armpits.
2ch offers their photos for reference… though it seems little more than a spectacle of member with their arms raised. For your viewing pleasure:
It’s amazing what these girls do to keep their fans happy.
I’m writing about useless and stupid things a lot, and I like to laugh. My policy is 一期一会。It means treasure your meeting with everyone!
