Tokiya Ichinose and Eiji Otori get a classic navy blue casual look to show off in this January PASH! Magazine (Amazon US | eBay) poster, illustrated by key animators Seiko Asai (朝井聖子) and Hatsue Nakayama (中山初絵).
He has a hard time deciding which form of social media he
prefers when it comes to Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat…So, he uses all three
of them faithfully. He has specific purposes for each platform. When he wants
share abstract thoughts, he takes to Twitter. When he wants to share pictures
of his cute new hat, his adorable dessert, or a photo of Elizabeth he runs to
Insta but when wants to talk to his audience about how his day went, give a sneak
peek of what a day in his shoes is like or embarrass his friends he uses
He has a public account for everything except FB. It is
the only private form of social media he has. He has a small amount of friends
because his FB is limited to real childhood friends and family. It is under a
different name. He never saves his FB profile photo to a picture of himself
either. He does this so that it would be fairly difficult for just anyone to
find him. He has a Twitter and Instagram but they’re generally only ever used
for promotional purposes. They’re usually ran by a PR team rather than himself.
Every now and then, he’ll delight fans by allowing his team to share a candid photo of him to his Insta.
He’s an Instagram fanatic. If he’s not in a group chat
harassing his friends, he’s on Instagram sending love to fellow idols and
sharing adorable selfies. He loves to follow fans back and blow up their
notifications because he knows it makes them happy. He replies back to comments
as much as he can. Aside from Insta, you
can find him and his smiling face on Snap along with a video of Camus
pretending to be sweet when we all know that once the camera goes off, Cesshi
is getting his ass handed to him.
He has every single social media account you can possibly
think of. His username is always something along the lines of
@theRealJinguujiRen. He uses Instagram faithfully. He doesn’t follow everyone
back so if a fan gets a follow they must be pretty special. In fact, if he does
follow a fan back, it’s for reasons. He
has gotten into trouble for DMing fans so he doesn’t do it as often as he used
to. He doesn’t have a FB account and has gone a public record stating that. He
urges fans to understand that although the accounts may say it’s the real Ren
Jinguji, it’s really not and to steer clear of them. There are many Instagram
users that follow him and has no idea that he
even sings for a living. They just follow because he’s nice to look at. He
uses his Twitter for promo purposes. His Snapchat is private and he only shares
it with people that he knows well in real life. It’s practically impossible to
find. He’s gotta have something for
One may speculate whether or not he actually lives on
Twitter. He uses his Twitter for both personal use and promotional purposes. Fans
can take to Twitter if they curious about how much water he drank that day, if
he skipped a meal or if he’s working. Trust me, they can find it all if they
want. He is not one to think twice before posting and once he nearly exposed a
Starish project in pre-production. The agency put him on probation and they had
to monitor everything before he posted it. But, since he updates so often, they
gave up and left him with a slap on the wrist. His Snaps are often silly videos
of him joking around with [read: annoying Tokiya] the others.
His Snap is LIT at all times. He is that person that just
makes you hate that your life isn’t theirs. He always seems to be having more
fun than anyone else in the world. His stories be centuries long if we’re just
being real but they’re so entertaining you can’t look away. Otoya and Natsuki
make appearances in his snaps on a regular basis. His Instagram is a more humble
look at his life, shockingly. He usually posts photos of himself and the others
in the studio or on the set of an interview with captions like: ‘All in a day’s
work,’‘So ready for you guys to see what we’ve got in store for you ;),’ ‘Love
Have you ever witnessed your grandparents using Facebook? Okay, good. Imagine that but instead of Gma or
Papa, imagine Masato. Haha. Just kidding. He’s not that bad but he’s not what
one would call proficient. His Twitter and Insta are half-ran by a PR person
and half-ran by himself. He’s never sure what he should or shouldn’t post so
the promotional posts always outweigh the candid posts. Go to his Insta if you want to see a candid video of him, playing the piano and singing! On the rare occasion
that he does actually post on his own, it’s always something like a photo of a
beautifully prepared meal with the caption: ‘Itadakimasu!’,
a picture of a waterfall he visited or some shit and on the rarest of
occasions, a stunning selfie. He doesn’t use Snapchat but that doesn’t stop him from making appearances in anyone else’s snap.
He is another guy that lives it up and doesn’t mind sharing
all of his good times with the public. He’s most active on his Snapchat. He
loves giving fans a behind the scenes look at his life. He once made an entire
Story he called ‘Getting Ready with Onii-chan!!.” Fans were able to witness a
shirtless idol, walking around his place with bedhead and a bonus cooking
class. Did anyone really care about the cooking class? No. He was still shirtless. Glorious? Everyone else thought so. Anytime he meets a fan out in public
(non-work related) he features them on his Snap. The other members of QN are
often shown in his Stories as well. Now, whether or not they wanted to be is up
to your interpretation.
Although he has an account on every mainstream social media
platform there is, they’re all ran by his PR team. He has 0 dealings with them.
He is more interested in spending his time watching Youtube videos. He has an
account that is oddly named and he lives in the comfort of knowing he can
comment and like any video he wants without having to think twice about what it
could do to his reputation. Not only does he not have to worry about being stalked by fans but there’s no way for his activity to be monitored by the agency.
He’s more of a forum kind of guy because he’s always interested to learn other people’s opinions on things. But if he had to choose at least one popular social media platform that he uses often it’d likely be his Twitter account. He prefers it to Insta and Snapchat because it is the most impersonal form of social media. To him, social media is just another way to stay relevant with his audience. He can post the most abstract thing and generate thousands of like and RTs which gets the job done.
It’s not that he tries to rub the idea that he lives a
better life than you in your face, it’s just that…. He truly does live a better life than
you and you just have to accept that as fact. He likes to pretend that he doesn’t care about social media but the truth is, Instagram is his guilty pleasure. Just one look at his elegant aesthetic and you’ll know how much time he spends on it. To be fair, at first he wasn’t interested in the app but after time went on he found himself curious and voilà now
he has the most beautiful Instagram you’ve ever laid eyes upon. Honestly, his Insta makes even the wealthiest people look like peasants.
