Japonism concert report:

A: You know, at the very last part (of the concert) when we go, ‘What is our name?’ At that part, sometimes I stood beside Matsumoto-kun. When I stand beside Leader, we will do this (lover style hand holding, like in the pink circle above) but Matsumoto-kun seems to dislike it.

N: I know! He seems to dislike doing that with me, too!

A: I’m glad it’s not just me! Maybe Leader and Sho-san hold hands firmly (with Matsumoto-kun)? Let’s try asking them when they come back.

Yama pair came back.

S: I’ve never even tried it.

O: He always looks like he hates it.

Matsujun came back.

A: Why do you dislike it? Tell me the reason.

S: [to Aiba] You’re acting like some annoying woman.

M: Conversely, why do we have to hold hands (like lovers do)?

N: For me it’s because it’s easy when I’m holding the mic.

A: That kind of meaning!

M: What kind of meaning? (laughs)

A: For me, it’s a leveled-up way to hold hands

M: After two hours our bond became stronger? (laughs)

A: Exactly. But today I’m looking forward to (the concert’s) ending <3

Sakumoto picture is from twitter. Seems legit because I watched the VSA footage. (Unless the video was edited, too)
