In a recent issue of All Star magazine, we got to take a close look at several different artists pairings for many artists, including Yuzu, Kinki Kids, Kobukuro, and Tackey & Tsubasa, and even an introduction to Arashi's famed pairings of love. The ever flawless Sakurai Sho and Fukuyama Masaharu took first place for several categories. Even more, three Arashi pairings got voted into strongest pairing. Check it out below.
Fukuyama Masaharu was ranked #1 in the collegue category chosen by men, and #1 in boss category chosen by men and women earning him 3 titles. Sakurai ranked #1 in "colleague" chosen by girls and #1 in "subordinate" chosen by boys.
Kinki Kids show their pairing power by kissing during concerts. Tackey & Tsubasa consider their meeting to be based on faith. As you can see, it's very easy to pair them together.
3 Arashi pairings ranked for strongest include Sakumoto, Aimiya, and Yama and why so. Sakumoto because they are "mature, sexy, and beautiful". Aimiya because "they are like brothers, like friends, and enviable." Yama because they are "laid-back and refreshing."
Pairings are unexpectedly a big part of artists lives. Fans often pair different members of a group with each other, and pairing culture is a well-known feature of most fandoms. What's your favorite pairing, Arama?
