Anonymous: Hi Elsie! Do you know if Taka and Takeru attended school together? Or how did they become good friends? Thanks in advance (:

Hi there! I don’t know much about their history, but I’m pretty sure they went to school together. The awesome stephany-310 translated Takeru x Taka Crosstalk from Takeru’s ALTERNATIVE book, so you def want to read if you haven’t already. Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Also, I’ll mention hana-angel and notweirdbutunique and eva-lee (tho Krista isn’t on tumblr so much right now b/c school) because they are big Takeru fans who might know more, so if they see this, maybe they can add some info.

I’m afraid I have to say, ‘No’. They never went to the same school. Taka entered a very famous private elementary school named ‘Keio Yochisha’ and went on to Keio high school, but transferred to Horikoshi Gakuen, which is also famous because it has many entertainers as its students. But he left school before graduating.

Takeru went to local schools and went on to public high school named Koshigaya Kita high school. He was scouted in his high school days and made his debut in the 2nd grade. He passed the audition for Kamen Rider and gave up going to university.

Thank you Stephany!!!

In addition to that, Takeru-kun got to know Taka through his co-star in Princess Princess D (his first drama and TV debut last 2006). His co-star was in the same high school as Taka. The co-star told Takeru-kun about Taka-kun and made him listen to a song. So that’s how Takeru first knew about Taka-kun and became a fan. Then he visited the prestigious private high school where Taka-kun studied and he watched ONE OK ROCK’s concert in that  school’s festival. Takeru-kun got to know and talk to the other OOR members, Toru-san & Ryota-san, at the AMUSE dormitory where he’s also staying. Thanks to stephany-310 for sharing her translations of ALTERNATIVE photobook w/ Takeru & Taka’s interview. You’ll learn more of them in it. :)

Thank you Hana!!!
