April Duet, Potato, and Wink Up

The April issues are all awesome! *___* Why? Well, for one thing Shoon shows again that he doesn't need to appear bare-chested to look sexy...
Also? Yamabu may be a figment of my imagination, but they're the best looking "couple" EVER. XD Ignore Yabu's ugly sports jacket and even uglier shirt and trousers.
And Shoon... HOW ON EARTH CAN PEOPLE SAY HE'S JUST AN AVERAGE LOOKING GUY?! @__@ Good God, can you get any more beautiful? *___*
Need more reasons why the April issues are awesome? I'll tell you a secret: in slash fiction most people see Shoon as uke (the feminine one) and Yabu as seme (the masculine one), but to me it's always been the other way around. In fact I think one of the reasons why they're such a great pairing is that with them those roles are quite interchangable. Yabu has a very boyish attitude, but a rather femenine figure, and Shoon has a very masculine appearance, but also femenine features and a somewhat femenine personality. So, yeah, everybody calls Yabu "Prince Yabu", but he can also be "Princess Yabu in distress". XD On another note... somebody should tell the magazine stylist that buttoning the first button of your shirt is not stylish at all... nor is that shirt. ^^U
And yes, Shoon can be handsome and cool, but also pretty and delicate.
Esther and other Shookaru fans will be happy with April's issues as well. I'm not. T___T She'll forever tease me with the pics below. Oh, well, I'm still happy that we get more "graduation" pics (though for some reason this one looks more to me like a bachelor's party XDDD).
Changing the subject... Isn't it amazing what a difference clothes can make? For instance Taiyô looks his age in the pic on the right, but looks totally cool in the one on the left.

PS: I'll try and answer all your comments as soon as I find the time. ^^B

Rin said...

Thanks for sharing!
They all look so good!
(Though I think Yabu really needs a haircut ^^; )
I think Taiyou's the most photogenic. He always looks so good.

Shoon looks as good as ever too. His beautymark on his neck really stands out in that first picture.

Thanks again for sharing!

Yuki said...

I swear, I nearly had a heart attack when I first opened the page! lol That's absolute teasing from him!! and I abosolutely ADORE that trench coat he's wearing!

I liked how taiyo looked in the "cool" picture one lol mainly his hair though. it looks kind of weird when its pushed backed like that in the brown striped shirt.

you know... I really want one of the magazines to make them wear dresses lol I want to see how pretty they look lol (-_- probably prettier then me though lol)

Shin said...
