Sakuma D. Aisuke, the man who will be the Idol King. [I hope someone gets the One Piece reference ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’—โœŒ]

Hello, I think I must post this before this year ends. I’ve been mentioning Sakuma Daisuke and Snow Man in this blog but didn’t get the chance to properly write about them. I did promise I’d write a post about him and them, so here we are ๐Ÿ˜‰

But well, where do I start? It feels like there’s a lot that I want to say but just when I start typing, my head goes blank๐Ÿ™ˆ But, okay, I actually went through my phone gallery to confirm when I started stanning them. And, yes, I started saving their pics and videos nearing the end of 2021. Well, I’ve been interested in Sakkun (that’s how fans call Sakuma Daisuke) way long before that, but I didn’t get the chance to get to know him more. And nearing the end of 2021, I made time to “analyze” (damn, I might be trying too hard to make this sound scientific, based, justified, and such ๐ŸคชโœŒ). I mean, I wanted to know why I was interested in him and if I did really like him or what, and so I started watching Snow Man’s YouTube videos before they debuted (they officially debuted on January 22, 2020, btw!) and since there were still only six of them. Then I continued watching the videos on their own channel. Yes, they have an official account on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter! And the rest is history; I mean, as you can already guess, I fell not just for Sakuma Daisuke but also in love with the whole group!!! They’re such a fun group, and their performances are awesome!!! I can’t help being a fan ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ˜Š

9 members in their respective member colors. This is from their regular TV show: Let Snow Man Do It [Sore, Snow Man ni Yarasete Kudasai, often known as Sore Suno]

Ok, first of all, I’d like to apologize in advance ’cause this post might be very long and I’d post lots of pics too! I mean, it’s usually dilemmatic to share pics of Johnny’s idols ’cause they’re usually shared in private, but now they’ve got official accounts and such and posted their pics publicly themselves, so I’ll take this chance to use them so I can show them off better!!! ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿคฃ Secondly, let’s talk about the amazing group: Snow Man. Snow Man is a Johnny’s idol group consisting of 9 members. They were originally 6 [I learned bout this later, though], but then they became 9. I won’t talk about the whys or the hows because I don’t want this post to be too long than I planned it to be and because I’m afraid I’ll end up being unnecessarily chatty as usual, so long story short, I started falling for them when they’re already 9, and the members also love the group as 9, so to me, Snow Man will always be a 9member group, and I love each member so much.

Sakkun’s chibi nui chara.

So let’s talk about each member in brief. I’ll put them in order based on how old they are. First, Fukazawa Tatsuya ๐Ÿ’œ the oldest member. He’s so fun and funny. I’d love to say that everyone in Snow Man is a comedian, but Fukka is especially fun and funny – in a cool way. He often acts stupid to lift the mood. And if you ask me, Fukka is my ideal type to marry in this group, because, Idk, somehow I feel like he’s the one I can feel safe with, content, free, and be myself. Peaceful? In Japanese, we have this word: ๅฎ‰ๅฟƒ. I feel he’s the one who can make me feel that way. No need to worry too much, no need to hold back too much, no need for such things. He’s the type who can make you feel okay to let loose, perhaps? Like someone you can talk things through without being scared or such because he’s mature enough for that? BUT WHY AM I TALKING ABOUT MY IDEAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A HUSBAND HERE? HAHAHA (Well, Sakuma, I’m sorry, but if you’ll have me, I’ll of course marry you ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’—โœŒ)

Next, my baby, Sakuma Daisuke๐Ÿ’—, the second oldest in the group but let’s talk about him in the end ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆโœŒ

I have his amigurumi customized as keychain^^

Next, Watanabe Shota๐Ÿ’™. My feelings for Shoppi were sorta dynamic. At first for some reason, he got on my nerves. Like, he’s so beautiful and cool but “annoying”? ๐Ÿ˜‚โœŒ Maybe because we share some traits and those traits are ones that I thought people disliked about me yet he looks so comfy with those traits, just being himself. But recently my love for him grew a lot, like, making my heart kyun-kyun. He’s the beauty man. He’s my ikemen. (Well, everyone in Snow Man is an ikemen ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ). But my, how I want to talk about him more T_T

But, well, next is Miyadate Ryota โค๏ธ The royal. I mean, he always acts like a royal and is so calm and composed ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And he’s such an amazing cook!!! He looks up to Kame too. We’re buddies!!! โค๏ธ

Next, Iwamoto Hikaru๐Ÿ’› the leader of Snow Man. Hi-kun is so manly!!! But the gap is asjzkldm!!! I mean, when you look at him, you can see he’s got such a macho and manly physique: muscular, sturdy, you name it! But in lots of interaction, he’s so very cute, oh my God. And I really love his dynamic with my baby. Well, I love my baby’s dynamics with other members too, though (So much that I even have a SakuPair folder in my Instagram to save each member’s pics with my baby ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆโœŒ).

He loves customizing his own T-shirt (just like me! ๐Ÿ˜†โœŒ). This one, if I’m not mistaken, means “Living is a fanservice for myself.”

Next is Abe Ryohei ๐Ÿ’š the brain of Snow Man. I mean, he’s very smart! He memorized the long digits ofย ฯ€ and is very knowledgeable. He’s also got a master’s degree! And he’s a certified weathercaster too!!! Awesome, isn’t he? When he’s with my baby, it is peace!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’š

The next three are the new members of Snow Man, they are Mukai Koji ๐Ÿงก, Meguro Ren ๐Ÿ–ค, and the youngest: Murakami Maito Raul ๐Ÿค. Koji is another comedian in this group! But he’s such a crybaby ๐Ÿคฃ But he’s so cool. He loves photography and he loves throwing jokes. It’ll be very fun and cool to travel with him!!! ๐Ÿงก Meanwhile, everyone says Meme is the ikemen figure in the group! ๐Ÿ–ค He’s so tall!!! And my, he’s such a good actor!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Raul is the youngest, not only in Snow Man but also in Johnny’s/the agency!!! ๐Ÿค I don’t know if anyone will be upset if I say this, but sometimes he looks like my fav Korean heartthrob: Lee Dong Wook. I hope nobody gets angry, though, ’cause I love LDW a lot, and I love Raul and Snow Man a lot too ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

Ok, now let’s talk about my baby: Sakuma Daisuke or Sakkun ๐Ÿ’— I can’t really explain why I love him but I think I can write what I love about him. So first, before I knew it, my eyes just keep following him. Even when he’s not the main focus of the topic, shoot, video, etc., I always want to see him, to know more about him, and I always get excited when I see/read something about him. That’s how I knew that he’s the one that I love the most in the group. To me, he’s the most fun. He’s so cute, sweet, kind, funny, and cool! He looks like he always enjoys himself, and not just for the sake of the camera. I know this is just my impression of him. I know I might be wrong but I do have my reasons as to why I say so. He’s so expressive. He stays in character even when he’s not in the spotlight. He “acts”/”performs” as if he’s always the main character. It’s like he’s got his own world and he goes all out there without caring whether someone would frame his scenes or not, i.e. he’s making his own scenes. I know because even when the camera doesn’t focus on him, it’s him that I always see and focus on. I’m not sure if I explain it well, and perhaps other members are the same, but it’s him that I always see so let me shower him with my love ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆโœŒ๐Ÿ’—

And he’s an anime otaku! He’s so open about it and I love him for that! Well, I love anime but I can’t say I’m an otaku, though. Not because I feel ashamed or such, but because I feel like I don’t know much or that deep about anime world. I focus on the ones I like, and I don’t really collect merch (mainly because I don’t have the money. LoL). But he’s exceptional! He knows a lot bout anime including the songs, dances, as well as VTuber. He also collects a lot of official merch (well, he’s rich! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸคชโœŒ). But I’m so proud of him for being so open and expressive about it. I can tell that he’s not faking it or just use it as a character. He genuinely loves anime and it shows. I’m proud because I know many people think of anime otaku negatively, yet here he’s being so positive about it, and that makes me really happy to see he gets to tell the world who he is, what he likes, and such proudly. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with being an anime otaku. No need to be embarrassed about it. We’re hurting no one. We’re harming no one. It’s not as if being an anime otaku will automatically make us a jerk. If you’re a jerk, then you’re a just a jerk, anime otaku or not!

And guess what? I feel he often tries to act cool like anime characters or the cool characters in manga, and he’s not denying it. I mean, many people often try to deny it when told that they’re just trying to be cool. But Sakkun is living it! He simply transforms himself into those cool characters, doing things that most people might be too embarrassed to do like Kabedon and such ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ He often acts like a manga/anime character! I love that he’s owning it because, again, being cool is a good thing, it’s something positive. So if we’re trying to be/look cool, it means we’re trying to be/look good, right? And being/looking good is a good thing. There’s nothing wrong with it, so why do some people think it’s uncool to try to be cool? Why do some people deny that they’re trying to be cool? Do they think it makes them cool? To me, no, it doesn’t. I mean, not everyone is born effortlessly cool, so if you make efforts to be cool, trying to be cool, I think it’s something we need to appreciate. But okay, maybe I’m biased because I love him and I myself love being cool, i.e. I want to be cool, and I try to be cool! In my own definition, though. Some people might define or see cool differently^^

And my baby is such a gem. He’s so pure. He’s such a muse! He often talks about how he wishes to have a warm and lovely family of his own someday, like, having his daughter say she wants to marry him but his wife says that’s no good ’cause he’s hers ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ He reads too much manga and watches too much anime!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ But that’s why he’s so precious. Some people might think it’s too fictional or utopian. But I really cheer for him and hope his dreams come true. He’s so sweet like that and I want to protect him ๐Ÿ˜Š I want him to always be happy๐Ÿ’—

I’m not sure if I’ve conveyed my feelings properly here, but I guess I love people who’re true to themselves. He’s not trying to be someone else. He’s not faking himself so people can like him. He’s just being himself, showing people what he loves, and in the end winning their hearts with his kindness, sincerity, and warmth. He’s got such a genuine and beautiful smile. I really love him ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’—

But, ugh, ok, I think I must end it here ’cause I need some sleep. If I keep writing, I won’t know how to end it ’cause there’s a lot that I want people to know about him and about Snow Man: their beautiful and diverse songs, their wonderful performances, their individual accomplishments, their achievements as a group, their love for each other and how well they get along with one another. There’s a lot!

But I need to sleep now, so, mmm, please be kind to Snow Man. Happy holidays. Hope you had an amazing year in 2022. See you next year ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ˜Š

Updated (13/1/23): I actually sent him a postcard from when I was traveling to Vietnam. Really hope he’d talk about it, or perhaps mention it, ’cause I addressed it to ใ‚ขใ‚คใƒ‰ใƒซ็Ž‹ใซใชใ‚‹ Sakuma D. Aisuke ใ•ใพใธ. Hope he gets the One Piece reference ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’—โœŒ
