Diagnostic Result: Your marriage compatibility with Ninomiya Kazunari is?

0~5 - Marriage compatibility 25% - Our relationship is probably still developing.
6~10 - Marriage compatibility 50% - Looks like we can become really good friends.
13~19 - Marriage compatibility 75% - You have lots of qualities that might make you a good candidate as a lover.
20 - Marriage compatibility 100% - If we meet, maybe we really will get married?!

"If you marry me, you can have the following privileges!"

1. I won't go anywhere
So what? You who are thinking this way, please think about it carefully. Not going anywhere would mean the time we spend alone together will be packed full. There probably isn't a better privilege than this one.

2. I won't let you feel discontented
Because you have the privilege of me "not going anywhere", outside of the occasional dinner with friends, I absolutely won't run wild. That's why, my wife won't have dissatisfactions such as "my husband is always out having fun"!

3. You will have your own personal space
When I'm playing my video games, my wife can do whatever she wants. This is probably the best, right? I've heard before that after marrying it seems like you don't have time to yourself anymore, but being my wife will come with lots of freedom (laugh).

4. You can tuck me in
Such a rare form of privilege. In any case, I'm that type that can fall asleep very quickly, so my wife can do things like pull the covers over me and tuck me in. See, you can bring your motherly instincts into play, right? (laugh)

5. Johnny's to the brim
Anyhow, I do count as a member of Johnny's too. If we marry, I'd imagine you would know a lot of Johnny's information too. And in addition, the possibility of seeing the other members of Arashi at least once every week is also very high (laugh).

"The most important criteria is 'liking'"

The criteria that will not change under any circumstances are: I am a guy, so the partner must be 'female', and must reach the minimum age of marriage, so '16 or older'. Also, to be able to communicate she will 'have to speak Japanese', these three. These are the most basic important criteria. And I'll mention this too: if you can speak Japanese, it doesn't matter what your nationality is.

And then, my wife will probably be happier if she has her own job. If she becomes a professional housewife she will only be taking care of me, and it seems like she would have to endure a lot of stress. Getting "I'm not your mother!" yelled at, an experience like this is probably best to just happen in dramas (bitter laugh). And I thought I'd just say this: there are periods in my job when I'm very very busy, but there are also times when I'm very free, so please don't make a face and say things like "It's probably about time for you to go do some work too now, isn't it?" during those times.

As for video games I like playing on my own, so it's not a must for you to have an interest in it. You just have to let me play, and that would be enough. Also, I don't really like travelling much, so a partner who hates travelling would be a bit better. For someone who likes travelling to have to tolerate it in order to be with me, this will bring about stress again, wouldn't it? And when we talk about not travelling, it goes for loud, boisterous places like parties too. That's why people who own evening wear for the purposes of going to places like these will probably not be compatible with me.

Well, outside of the criteria listed this time there are probably 120 or so more, but the most important one is - as expected - to 'like me'. "No matter what they say, you're still the best" If it's someone who won't say these kinds of things to me, I won't marry her.
