I am one of those crazy Americans living in Japan.
I got into the fandom with V6 (thanks to Okada-kun), but realized they are older, and switched up to Arashi about 8 years ago. I pretty much love all of the guys, but Sho and Nino definitely rock my socks a bit more than the others do. I also love NEWS and Kanjani∞. Ryo is the link there... but i also have a soft spot for Tegoshi, Pi, Hina, and Maru.
