Recently I got more and more interested In Tomomi Itano

AKB48 Tomomi Itano

Though she is totally not My-Oshi, I can’t help but being attracted to Tomocin..
Some time before, people said she had plastic surgery or her attitude is rude…
But as I’ve gradually come to know her true personality, she starts to look a nice girl to my eyes…
In the previous episode of AKBINGO, when she was drinking water, she was so cute….
Does this happen to only me?

I think you are becoming Tomochin-Oshi…

I’m worrying about my-Oshi as she hasn’t shows steady performance…

Tomochin is the definition of Tsundere.
(Wikipedia: Tsundere
Tsundere (ツンデレ) (English: /ˈsuːndɛreɪ/ or /tsʊ-/,Japanese: [tsɯndeɽe]) is a Japanese character development process that describes a person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing their warm side over time. The word is derived from the terms Tsun Tsun (ツンツン), meaning to turn away in disgust, and Dere Dere (デレデレ)meaning to become ‘lovey dovey’. Originally found in Japanesebishōjo games, the word is now part of the otaku moephenomenon, reaching into other media such as maid cafes, anime, manga, novels, and even mass media.[citation needed] The term was made popular in the visual novel Kimi ga Nozomu Eien.)

By the way I heard the story that Acchan and Tomochin are kind of members that we have come to love them after we had hated them.
I truly understand that story.
Sayaka is that kind of person, too.

I like how she is being straight forward.
But how you convinced yourself on plastic surgery thing?
Actually I haven’t cared about plastic surgery at all in the first place.
Recent tweet about the story that Tomochin found Mariko in TV station’s building and shouted to Mariko was heartwarming.

A little while ago, I found Mariko at the TV station♡

Don’t call my name in a loud voiceーlol I was blushed!
There’re dozens of girls in non-Senbatsu who are cuter than top members.
So most of Ota don’t judge members from their appearances.
Tomochi is all the more cute on a stage 🙂
I can feel you… I somehow can’t help but caring about her…
I’m almost going to buy ticket for her Kobetsu-Shake-Hands event

She is plain on her blog, but she occasionally put photos of beautiful scenery or dishes she cooked herself, and that makes her even cuter.

There’re Tomochin-like girls around us actually… say…. first impression is awful but as we’ve come to know her well, we realized “Why did I judge her from her appearance before? She is actually a nice girl!”. By the way I’ve become a fan of her in this way lol

Many of Tomochin Ota are nice people.
Being liked by nice people means Tomochin is a nice girl, I guess.
By the way despite our prejudice, most of Acchan-Ota are also nice people.
Initially I’ve had the same impression on her as you.
Tomochin is almost always judged by her appearance or attitude….
But it just because she is poor at expressing her thought… she is just clumsy… but actually she is a really good person… i think…
Tomochin <- Even her nickname is so cute.

Who the heck can’t understand the goodness of AtsuTomo… (;-_-)

Looking Itano eating this persuaded me that it’s alright to eat this…

Certainly she looks like a bad girl, though I don't know my word choice it correct. But as you watch her in various TV shows, you'll come to understand that your first impression was wrong.
Though she has become famous for her job as a model or through commercials, it's really good of her that she still cares about AKB....
She never suck up to fans at Shake-Hands event, just being natural and somewhat passive if I'm correct.
But her 'firm' handshake makes my heart...
When it comes to competitions, she always gets serious.
There was 'super ball Sukui' game in her solo event where she play the game with about 10 fans and if they win over Tomochin they'll be gifted special presents. But she never went easy on them and ended up win over all the fans by a big lead.

I also heard in the same event, when a little girl challenged her, she let the girl get the special present. I don't know whether it's just a little girl was good at the game or Tomochin was deliberately being soft on her, though.

Don’t forget the Uchida report!
Mayumi Uchida’s blog
Good morning!
Tomochin is cleaning a toilet.
Since this is so rare, everyone took pictures of this scene (^-^)

The gap between this Tomochin and her image from her looks… I think this is Moe~.
We could see such a good scene in as early as in the morning.
I truly respect people who do what they should do just naturally.
So I’ll be going to the studio to sing.
Live the life to the fullest.
No… this is too touching….
I’m almost gonna change my Oshi-men….

At first, I’ve disliked her just because I had a image that she is not a nice girl.
But as I’ve come to know her….for instance…..say…. she eats anything so happily or responsible personality of her, I am convinced that “She may be a really nice girl?”. Though it’s not something like Oshi-hen but I feel like cheering up and protecting her if it’s necessary.
Though many people misunderstand her, Tomochin is a kind of person that you will love her if you know her well.
I believe people who like AKB can understand the goodness of her.
No, I can’t stop myself anymore…………..!!!

I love you Tomochin!!!!!!!!!!!!!
