I agree! He got MC stolen from him when he got top votes for DoyaGao tho. xD That reaction was the cutest thing ever.

It was a part of the game they played. A choreographer showed a short dance and then a challenger had to try to dance it themselves. Nino's song was Dancing Queen and he nailed it :D

Happy birthday, Neeners! It's hard to believe he's 35 when I remember when he turned 33. That was probably during the first year I became a fan. XD

I've seen so many Nino videos and pics lately because of his drama and film, that I've started to like him so much. He's not going to beat Aiba as my ichiban, but he's getting close :D I just really enjoy watching Nino in his solo works. Also, all those Nino x Kimura Takuya promos are quite interesting. Wish I could see that film already.

^ I too have been having a preference to Nino recently. I think it started when I saw the footage of him visiting the storm victims on news zero. I liked how he approached the people there and were really warm to them, even when the girls were squealing and shoving phones in his face. My favorite part was when this kid asked him if he was the real Nino, and he replied, "Yes, I am the real Nino." It made me giggle. No, kid, he's a fraud. He just looks like Nino. He's a doppelganger. He's a hologram.

"Are you the real Nino?" XD So cute. ^_^

He does seem like someone who is very approachable and down to earth. Has he always been like this? I've been so Aiba focused that I only noticed it lately.

I don't know if Nino has always been approachable. I'm the wrong person to ask. XD Winkychan met him in France and got a picture with him. She said he was really cute and really nice. He even mentioned her in a magazine interview later! Lucky her!

Double wow! That's really nice! She's lucky. But she definitely deserves it, she has done so much for the international fandom :)

What was Nino promoting in France?

I can't remember. It might have been during his Letters to Iwa Jima days. That's the only movie I can think of that is internationally popular.

yes it was for Iwo Jima. I remember on a music station later he talked about Paris and how popular Arashi is in Paris. No one believed him and I was screaming at the screen "BELIEVE HIM YOU IGNORANT PEOPLE, JUST OPEN GOOGLE!" XD

Iwo Jima is in fact probably the only thing I have not yet watched out of Nino's filmography because I don't dare to. I'm bad with (real) sad stories, I can cry days about it and I've read an article "The story is written on this actor's face" which talks about how this, to the US viewer unknown, actor (i.e. Nino) portrays the horrors of this story just with his face and I was like

I'm too weak for Nino's acting and too week for real sad stories, I'll pass this one! (though I heard it's good)

Whoever said that, that was well put. Nino was great in it and I'm not being biased here. War movies aren't my faves because they are often based on true stories and I always end up feeling crap after watching them, but I watched Iwo Jima because 1. I was able to watch it in a local cinema and 2. Nino. I was so excited to be able to see an Arashi member's film in cinema! But damn, Nino and his facial expressions (+ of course the whole story) broke my heart so bad.

I kind of want to see Nino in that movie because I want to see how he does with American actors. Have you seen him when he stands next to the main actors? He looks like a little kid. XD
