Japanese celebrities make it ontoTC Candler's list of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2012

TC Candler presents The 23rd Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces 2012, which has been published in various formats every year since 1990... and in recent years has been seen by over 30 million unique visitors from around the world.

Unlike many other annual publications, The Independent Critics List is not a popularity contest. It is not about the sexiest or the most famous. Rather, it aims to be a very international list and one that is inclusive of many cultures, lifestyles, professions and degrees of fame. The Independent Critics List intends to inform public opinion rather than reflect it. This list searches far and wide, listening to the millions of suggestions submitted every year, and tries to put together a list representative of the modern ideal of beauty. Aesthetic perfection is only one of the criteria. Grace, elegance, class, poise, joy, promise, hope... they are all embodied in a beautiful face.

The fact that Emma Watson was no.1 last year makes me side eye the list. Arama, who do you think has the most beautiful face of 2012, be they on the list or not. Who do you think has the most beautiful face in America, Japan, etc?

The truth behind SKE Matsui Jurina’s sudden weight loss…

WARNING : I’ve wondered all afternoon if I should or not translate this article knowing full well the wailing it would engender but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d rather see fans react after having read the complete thing rather than launch in perilous speculations and interpretations based on badly translated bits of article.

About the source of the article, Cyzo, one should know that the website and publisher has since long work with SKE as they published the 2D enthusiasts association’s interviews on their site in the past and have also published their photobook in April. So they could well have insight into SKE and contacts among the stafff. Plus Men’s Cyzo has a good reputation online (not considered a rag in any aspect). This doesn’t make the content of this article, especially the SKE related person’s statements undeniably true but it does give the article some weight… Believe who will.
