In 2001, Tsubasa and Hina (along with Ken, Toma, Nino, and Koki) starred in the drama Neverland together, and the tiny era of the Tsukami Friendship dawned.
My favorite Tsubasa+Hina moment definitely comes from this promotional clip where the cast has to do a “Pheromone Pose” to show off their sexeh side. At this time Hina was already well into his slaphappy career and never showed the slightest hint of hesitation before delivering a well-timed and well-deserved smack to the head. Yet he let Tsubasa get halfway through unbuckling his belt and undoing his fly before Tsubasa finally turned around and said, “Isn’t anyone going to, you know, make me stop?” Hina merely smiled indulgently and explained once more to his clearly-trolling friend.
That may be the only time I’ve seen Hina pass up such a glowing, sparkling, gleaming opportunity to hit someone.
A miracle of the Tsukami Era. u___u
