Yamapi ANAN magazine interview 080730  
Had some free time so I decided to translate the latest ANAN issue with yamapi's interview :)

Yamashita Tomohisa
Although love is not based on logic, but proper etiquette is a must.

"The type of girl that I feel is perfect, is one who have good manners and looks. Even if it is love at first sight or starting from being friends, all of these are necessary. The usage of greetings and formal words are the basic communication, To me, being able to let me feel that 'by introducing her to my friends would not make me embarrassed' is the most important criteria as a lover.

Whether she has common sense or not, it is easily shown when she communicates with other people, was what Yamashita Tomohisa san said.

"When I see a girl greeting the elderly politely, or when in a convenience store purchasing things and says, 'I don't need a plastic bag', I will think in my heart 'That lady is not bad ah'. However, humans are not perfect. As love is about letting others see the various  and bad side of you at the same time."

After becoming lovers and doing things which lets one associates with words of the joyful times, is essential to create a good impression.

"Being able to remember the tea and various drinks that I like then preparing them with effort, will let me feel 'Really cares about me very much ah'. And also one more thing, setting an aim and following that direction in doing your best to learn, also gives me a good impression. Maybe it is because I don't really like the thing about life revolving around love only."

And also because of this, actions of treasuring friends and family will also gain high points.

"For example, even if the next day early in the morning work awaits, but 'because it is a friend's birthday' the girl will then squeeze time to organize a party, will give me a 'I want to know or understand her even more!' feeling. But...... When you yourself is feeling very troubled but you will still take care of friends first, then it may be a little too miserable (laughs)"

The person who is able to capture Yamashita san's heart, could be a girl who understands how to seize this type of delicate man's mentality/mind.

Yamapi's perfect girl is nice. He has a good sence in girls, but the part he mentions "Whether she has common sence or not...", Yamapi should change that to: "Common sence is a must" just because people who have no common sence at all are complete dunces, Im a personal witness to quite a few.

thanks for translating this!

im glad Yamapi talks in details what's the ideal girl for he wants. very rare do we get inteviews with these much details. ^^

i bet every fangirl including me as they were reading was mentally checking off Yamapi's list what qualities they have matches what he says. XDDD
your_insomnia: Yamapiyour_insomnia on July 24th, 2008 05:55 pm (UTC)
Even though I'm a fangirl, I wasn't checking off anything. The description of a girl with common sense is pretty general. I know very few people who are rude or discourteous.
And also the problems is, even if Yamapi meets someone who fits all of his criteria of ideal lover - he might not like them. I think it's impossible to say who you would like and who's your perfect lover. There still have to be sparks, chemistry and other things...The person might be the coolest person, but you just don't like him. Yamapi also mentioned this in other interviews that he doesn't really have a type...As long as he likes the girl, that's he's type. And in general Yamapi tends to change his answers about his ideal girl through years (which is understandable of course. Time goes on, he changes). I remember a few years ago he would say his ideal girl is the one who can cook. XD
If somebody were to ask me what's my ideal type I wouldn't be able to tell them. My ideal type is Yamapi lol..but then how is he? What's his character traits? I don't know, I just like him. XD
