I’m having a chitchat with Sho kun on the phone. It’s kind of fun, I mean happy.

What was I talking to him? I don’t remember a thing. (laughs) Why was I that happy? I don’t get “I’m so happy I got to talk to Sho kun!” now. (laughs)
Firstly, I think Ohno is definitely an artist. I found myself marvelling at how amazing he is all over again when he choreographed for us during last year’s concert tour. He’s also shown us the art he’s been doing recently, and our senses are completely different. It feels like he’s been honing his sense as an artist over the years, though I’m sure it’s also thanks the increased number of opportunities like his exhibit and so forth where he can be productive.
—-That is true. On the one hand, he’s become more optimistic towards work over the years. He’s enjoying his work with dramas and variety shows, and we can see that he enjoys being in Arashi too.
I just think he’s all grown up now. Leader probably realizes he needs to work hard too, don’t you think? (laugh)

Why is it, I wonder…Sho-kun is the most comforting; or should I say, the easiest to talk to. Whatever it was in my mind I can simply tell him without consciously thinking about whether I can talk about it or not. In regards to that, he never ridiculed me; and because that’s how he is naturally, maybe that’s why I can talk about everything to him.
