It seems we inspired someone to draw a little "how do I love thee" diagram of Hoshino Hidehiko! I'm sure many of you saw this on Mr. Imai's blog and were hoping for a translation. Here it is!
Imai says, "On the back of one of the questionnaires handed in at the Gunma Ongaku Center, someone drew a very impressive illustration."
"Lately Mr. Hoshino is just too tough and smug, and I can't take it. I love this Hide!"
"His hair is ultra-sleek and sharp and double-layered"
"His hairdo is ultra-stylish"
"The shape of his mouth is ultra-cute"
"His beard is ultra-wild"
"His crows feet are ultra-alluring (I have a wrinkle fetish!*)"
"He's got his shirt open to show off his ultra-sexy chest and mole on his collarbone"
"I really want a sticker of that pentacle symbol."
"In conclusion, this is one handsome man!"
"Oh god, he's ultra-handsome."
"(This is my personal opinion.)"
"* it's love."
And Imai's commentary: "Spot on, right? This one is going in my hall of fame, for sure."
And another comment, from a long-time Blog-Tick reader: "What happened to Hoshino-san? He is.. breathtaking! I always considered him as being very beautiful, but he is getting more and more beautiful..! just can't stop looking at him."
I also find it significant that Imai didn't argue with any of the assertions made by the illustrator.
So, uh, Acchan fangirls...is that your final answer?
