Member Spotlight II: Chinen Yuri

Chinen Yay!

And now the final Member Spotlight of the week is on Chinen Yuri!!! I’ve actually had a lot of fun writing down my thoughts on each of the members so I hope you all enjoy reading them!! The other 5 will be featured next week, starting Sunday. Who am I saving for last? You’ll just have to wait and find out!! Anyway, the spotlight now is on Chinen so let’s get to it!!

Well I remember noticing Chinen in the Your Seed video because of his shorts! I know it’s kind of weird but everyone else was wearing pants and he was wearing shorts so in that strange way, he stood out to me. Chinen was always the cutie pie, sitting on Takaki’s lap and providing those high vocals that only he could. One particular memory I have of his cute days is during the Hey! Say! PV making, Takaki was talking to the camera when the other four left him and went outside. Yuto was looking through the window and waving (which was adorable). Chinen was saying “Mienai, mienai” (I can’t see, I can’t see) in this really cute voice and he looked just like a little kid who wanted to get in on the fun. So Daiki tried to pick him up and let him see in the window but he couldn’t last that long and he put him back down. It was hilarious and Chinen was super kawaii!! And also I remember when he was sitting on Takaki’s lap and pinching his cheek, making funny noises. I miss that really cute Chinen.

Since then, he’s matured quite a bit. I think the Mayonaka no Shadow Boy was good evidence of that. And in all the magazines, he’s definitely grown up from that cute little boy who likes to play around. He’s giving all those model poses and looking pretty kakkoi. And I really noticed it in their latest tour DVD when he was singing songs like Ultra Music Power with his new matured voice and it struck me that he really has changed. I really like cute Chinen in that song so it’ll take some getting used to hearing his new voice in songs like that. And that’s their first single so you can bet it won’t be going anywhere. It’s surprising to see how far he’s came. It won’t be long before he’s bringing out those Yamada moves.

And Chinen outside of music is good too since I’ve seen him in two dramas: Sensei wa Erai! and Scrap Teacher. These two dramas seem to show the transformation of Chii from cute to cool. In Sensei wa Erai!, he was really cute and him and Yuto’s character fit together perfectly!!! In Scrap Teacher, he didn’t get as much attention as I would have liked. Although he can did get more attention than Dai-chan and got the focus on his episode with the manga. I liked his cool side but he was better in Sensei wa Erai!

Sorry this came a little bit later than the others. I was just kinda lazy hehe. Yay Chinen!!



  1. you kno, chinen had always been the “squirrel” as yuto said it…
    he’s so cute and all, and he admits that he’s cute…

    the thing about chinen is that he is not ashamed being cute, and he actually enjoys the attention given to cute people…

    i bet all the fans adores the cute, lovely, cheerful chinen!!!

    Go Chinen!!!

    He is cute so I’m glad he can admit it. And it doesn’t come off as annoying either!
    Yay for Chii!!

    “Punyo~ Punyo~” <— Those were the funny noises. Probably, I will never forget that scene.
