Question 2: Guess the age of the member when this photo is taken. (10 points each/ 100 points total)

Chinen, 10 years old.
Waahh, I looked really small. But now, I still have a really good stature. (laughs) When this picture was taken, I was still not really used to being in front of cameras yet. Because I’m not used to looking at the camera, I was looking at the piece of potato instead. (laughs)

Yamada, 12 years old.
It was before the filming of [Tantei Gakuen Q]. I don’t really notice it, but looking at it now, it seems that I’ve grown much. And to think that it’s just only 4 years… there’s good changes and bad changes ne. (laughs)

Nakajima, 11 years old.
It’s really nostalgic~! My hair is really short! And there’s a band-aid on my index finger too! My finger was injured because I was too rowdy in school. The period when I’m still a kid is the happiest time in my life.

Morimoto, 10 years old.
Really young, and really small too. Really cute- ! Since after, I’ve been growing taller in height. Because before that, I’m really short, and so I’ve been always thinking of growing taller. As compared to before, I got the feeling that I’m growing more into an adult now.

Okamoto, 14 years old.
First time having a shoot without clothes on, and I remembered that I was feeling really nervous at that time… and my hair was really short and loose. At that time, as compared to Yuto, I was the taller one. Actually, I’ve grown 10 cm too. I’m not really reconciled to that fact (as to how Yuto’s taller than him now).

Arioka Daiki, 14 years old.
There’s not much change (in terms of appearance), how uninteresting. (laughs) For this, there were lots of games and manga on the photoshoot location. At that time, I was too crazy about it that I kept playing. This picture of me looking at the camera is a miraculous one.

Takaki, 15 years old.
It’s really nostalgic. I was really happy, working at that time. And when the fans came to talk to me, I felt even happier. Though I could still remember a lot of different things, the feeling that I had that time is something that I wouldn’t want to forget.

Yabu, 12 years old.
There's an angel's halo on my head totally, really cute. At that point of time, I would stay in school to play soccer everyday. But when I go to school, I would get injured. And also, I didn't do much thinking. Was totally depending on my instincts for survival. (laughs)

Yaotome, 12 years old.
I totally don't remember anything about the photoshoot. If it was anything, then it's that I'm not smiling. (laughs) But from then on, whatever I do, I do it seriously. But one thing that never change, since ever till now, is that when the photoshoot takes place in the mountains, I would bring a wooden stick up there with me.

Inoo, 13 years old.
I'm used to seeing my hair being curly, and now that when I looked at my old self, the straight hair looks fresh-looking. At that time, I would hide in the bushes when playing hide-and-seek, gathering with friends to play games. A really innocent teenager ne. (laughs)

Question 3: Using the palm-reading results below as a reference, guess which hand belongs to which member. (5 points each/ 50 points total)

A- The top part of the head line is facing downwards slightly. It gives out the feeling that he’ll excel in art. He should be able to put his potential in drawing and photography into good use. The heart line extends beyond the space in between the middle finger and the ring finger. This means that he might be afraid of loneliness.

B- The tip of the heart line is split into two lines, which is a sign of gentleness. For people whose life line takes up a large part, they are always very energetic and cheerful. Because of that, they are loved by everyone. The head line is a little twisted, looks like he has some weird special skills.

C- From the looks of it, this palm totally belongs to someone who wants to be spoilt. The way how the head line and life line being joined together till the middle part is a proof of it. And also, the heart line is located in a lower part of the palm, means that this person has the characteristic of thinking through carefully before making any actions. He would not forget to read the atmosphere before making any actions, and is someone who's really serious.

D- The heart line stopped just under the middle finger, giving off the reall cool and cold impression. Ready to make observations, and able to made good explanations to others. The way how the middle finger and the ring finger seem to be close together shows the characteristic that he'll be able to give proper love and care towards a girl.

E- With the heart line and head line sticking together like that, this person has the 'Ape line' palm, mostly belonging to people who are a little weird. Someone who wants to be spoilt. And also, he's someone who wants to be alone, and yet at the same time, he's afraid of loneliness. His personality is complicated and strange, but is able to understand key points successfully. And because of that, he would most likely be number 1 in things that he do.

F- The middle finger tells of someone's responsibilty and patience. This person has really obvious joints in his middle finger, and has the existence of being a leader that will take good care of the members. The short head line shows that he can release his potential in the sports aspect.

G- When opening his hand, his thumb stretches outwards, a sign of being prim and proper. Will treat jokes seriously, and sometimes, he's not able to properly tell others of his feelings. But, he would place his friends in the first place and take actions based on that. He has a really straight head line, showing that he has a fast revolution. [T/N: Like I think he means that his brain is able to think fast.]

H- Has the ability to adapt fast to his surroundings. Using the point that his life line spilts into two at the end, looks like his fate lies in the overseas. Has a good attitude towards people, and is able to treat others fairly. Has the characteristics of being the most popular one in the group.

I- He has a really long heart line and brain line. Has a really developed Luna mount [T/N: Sorry, I made a mistake here. It's not the Venus mount, but the Luna mount instead. This refers to the small hump that you have near your wrist below the little finger], it shows that he has a sense in music. The long little finger proves that he can operate a musical instrument carefully. The really long and beautiful thumb shows that he's someone with high aim to move forward, and creates his goals on the aim of being the best.

J- Has discontinuous life line, but as a form of compensation, he has a continuing heart line. This kind of people are sensitve towards emotions, towards the aspect of writing and composing lyrics, they are able to bring out their message. A natural poet.

Question 4: Please make a guess as to which member made the positions from A to J. (5 points each/ 50 points total)


Question 5: We have raised three questions about love to the members. Please try and guess each member’s answers. (5 points each/ 150 points total)

The type of girl that I like

A- Hair length should be semi-long, in either black or brown colour. Girls who wear shorts and sports shoes, and that they’ll go play with me seems to be not bad. But if I can comfort a girl when her feet feels painful from wearing high heels, this sort of feeling is nice too. (laughs)

B- Although it's the sister that would watch fashion events or TV specials, but being able to have different type of styles is a girl's privilege! A girl that is able to enjoy the different type of styles at that time isn't bad either. If it's more lady-like, I like those flowy type of skirts.

C- 'Fresh look' is the main point. If the clothes looks suitable on her, then it's okay already. But then, when it comes to hairstyle, I have my insistence. I like black hair ne. ... But this is also related to 'fresh look' ne. (laughs) And also, I like straightforward girls. This is really important!

D- In terms of dressing, I have no special demands. But the most important thing is to have a comfortable and refreshing look. Wearing a skirt while barefooted, definitely a no-no. My mum is good in cooking, so if she can make delicious dishes it would be good ne. It's the best if she can make sweet and sour shrimp for me.

E- When it comes to clothes, must be of the girlish type. A white full-piece dress is not bad too. That is, that's the types of dressing that we boys can't do. (laughs) Hairstyle would be black straight hair, being able to tie it up of length. I like the action of letting down the hair that has been tied up.

F- For me, the girl that I like would be the style I like at that time. If I were to say, I would prefer a more leisure, and yet able to bring out a girly side kind of style. For hairstyle, black, long hair is better ne!!

G- My clothes are of a rather plain colourm, so I hope that the girl would wear something that's plain too. A white T-shirt with a black long jacket. As for the bottom, it will be tight-fit jeans. If the shoes are full of colours, it will be the main point of fashion ne.☆

H- I like those sort of rock styles like a T-shirt with leather jacket. And also, a girl that has a rich knowledge for music and movies isn't too bad either. Maybe I would be attracted to a girl that looks at the computer, and looking up information about different places too. (laughs)

I- A girl that looks good with jeans. I like girls that wears flat shoes. No specific requirements as to the hairstyle, but if I have to mention one, that it would be black, medium-length hair. A clean, refreshing look is really important. But as compared to all of that, the most important thing is one's smile. I really like girls that have a cute smile.

J- I wear really simple clothing, so a girl with pants and casual clothing is good enough. Make-up has to be of a simple feel too. But, if her hair is of slightly brown, giving off an natural feel of fashionable, it's good too!

Thing to say before kissing

A- Please close your eyes.
B- Itadakimasu (laughs)
C- I'm digging in. ♥
D- Say ‘suki’ ten times, then I’ll kiss you. (laughs) [T/N: As explained by kute24 , if you say 'suki' ten times in a fast speed, it would sound like 'kisu' (kiss). =D Thanks for the explanation!=)]
E- Hm?
F- Kiss me baby.
G- Use your lips, ルネッサーンス [T/N: Apparently, it's a gag.]
H- Can I kiss you?
I- ...... (speechless)
J- Can I kiss (chuu~) you?

2. The lover that I want
3. The one that looks strong when it comes to fighting.
4. The brother that I want
5. The most perverted
6. The one that looks like he could speak to aliens

Ranking A- 5) The most perverted
Ranking B- 3) The one that looks strong when it comes to fighting.
Ranking C- 1) The most fashionable


Ranking A - The most perverted
- Inoo-chan. But it’s the really 'open' kind of pervertic. (laughs) [T/N: I’m not sure what he means. But I don’t think he means that Inoo is really that perverted. XD] He’s looks happiest when he talks about dirty jokes that are of elementary school level. ☆ (Arioka)
- Keito. Because when he listens to dirty jokes, he'll feel embarrassed. So he's conversely more pervertic ne~ (Takaki)
- Inoo-chan. No matter what the topic is, he would reply it with dirty jokes. Although it's interesting, but it's rather old man-like. (laughs) (Nakajima)
- Takaki-kun would look at others because of sexiness. (Okamoto)

Ranking B - The one that looks strong when it comes to fighting.
- There's none, since everyone is rather weak ne. (laughs) But if I have to mention one, then it would be me I guess. (snickers) (Yamada)
- Keito. Looking at his muscles, I would think, "He's strong... in fighting, isn't he?" (Morimoto)
- Hikaru-kun. Actually, I used to fight with him. [T/N: I think he means fighting, like sparring.] When we were still juniors, he often makes me cry. (laughs) (Arioka)
- Chinen. Not that he was a strong arm power or something like that, but he seems to be really noisy when fighting. It's really scary. (Takaki)

Ranking C - The most fashionable
- Keito. That guy's private clothes looks really cool. Whatever is good. We must go shopping together. (Yamada)
- Yama-chan. He really pays attention to accessories, so he's fashionable. As compared to me who always wears plain clothes, it's totally opposite. (Yaotome)
- Yama-chan's height and mine are about the same. So I can always use him as a reference! (Chinen)
- Even if it's a T-shirt with a really simple design, when Keito wears it, it can become really funky. (Inoo)
- The only middle-schooler who looks so compatible with a hat, can only be Ryuutaro. (Yabu)

Question 10. The ten people's talk. Please make a guess as to who A - J are. (5 points each/ 50 points total)

A: The one that's like an adult, I think it's D. Even though everyone's noisy, he would remain quiet alone. Has the image of looking at us being noisy from afar, while smiling to himself.
B: I think it's D too! Whatever happens, he wouldn't make a move. What does C thinks?
C: Using the elimination method, it's D I guess. And also, I think he's the most serious amongst the other members when it comes to doing something.
D: Is that so? I just seem like an adult, and it's not all the time that I'm serious.
E: What I think, is that the time when D is quiet, is like the common opposition during the period of having amorous thoughts. It's the time when he wants to act like an adult.
D: It's nothing like that... By the way, I think it's G (who's like an adult). Always looking cool, and really handsome!
F: G ah... He's only acting cool. Actually, he's still a kid. (laughs)
G: Wait-!
F: And loves manga, unexpectedly.
B: That's right. G is definitely a kid. Always playing pranks on the members. But then, when it comes to playing pranks, I would not lose too.
G: It's just that I still want to have the child-like heart after being an adult. That's why, it is to have fun in the right environment.
H: Heading back to the previous topic, I think A is the most like adult. He's the only one amongst the members that will say "No!" in a severe tone. Because I've known him for a rather long time, so what I've said should be accurate.
I: Un, he's really serious. He looks at the things around him really calmly.
J: During the MC, if A is not around, there's no way to continue talking.
G: Exactly! Although we're the same year, I would still depend on him.
A: Stop complimenting me, I'll feel embarrassed. (laughs) Then, it's decided that the one that's most like adult is me then. Next, the member that's the most like a child is? I think it's J ne. Because he still has those parts that are like a child within him. But that, is also one of J's good points!
D: I think it's J too. He's always noisy, and joyful too.
J: Eh?! As compared to me, D, who is younger than I am, is more like a kid... D, be noisy together with me.
D: No, I'm the one who gets tired when being noisy.
E: What are you talking about? You're the youngest member. For me, I think it's I. Because, he often has huge reactions. And chubby faces are the best!
I: Thank you. For me, I'm voting for J. As compared to me and E who are in the same year, he's the one who can't seem to settle down.
H: Then, everyone agrees that the one who's most like a kid is J? Because he has a high tension everytime, and doesn't seem to be able to catch a cold even, really energetic.
C: Really full of energy. And H is also the same. When I play the guitar in the studio, he would also perform with me by my side.
H: Must play as a band again.
A: What about J? Who do you think it is?
J: Actually, if you ask me, I think it's myself too. (laughs)
Everyone except J: Oi~ (laughs)
J: What I'm saying is that, if I get hooked onto something, I can't really see anything else anymore... And recently, I've also told peers of the same grade in high school, "Really like a kid ne." Hahaha~
A: Really, so it's decided that it's J!

A: Yabu
B: Arioka
C: Okamoto
D: Morimoto
E: Chinen
F: Inoo
G: Takaki
H: Yaotome
I: Yamada
J: Nakajima
