Now That Singles Awareness Day Has Passed

..it is probably a good time to remind people of the importance of stoicism...and failing that, knowing when to shut up.

When asked by a reporter how he felt about the recent record snowfall in Tokyo, this fellow seems to have given an answer so sappy that it broke the very soul of the young lady on his arm. To add to the couples mutual mortification the interview quickly went viral and....well...

This only scratches the surface.
My God. It's full of ships...

The obvious takeaway here is that the greatest threat to a relationship is TV reporters.
Your mileage may vary.

1 Man, they are right on the cutting edge with that last one.  The episode with that only just came out.

But... what did he say?

2 What he said is being reported as...
"Being in the snow with my lover like this immerses me in a special feeling. I like it.”

...which is probably suffering in the translation, but...

6 Aside from the pictures, I find the expressed jealosy and hatred remarkable. MSM keeps telling us that Japanese gave up, do not want, etc. Well... Maybe they gave up, but perhaps just because they're too busy/lazy, and not because manga and games make a full substitute.

7 Yeah, now that you mention it, the venom directed at this guy is a bit hard to fathom. I'm not sure if it's a cultural thing because his statement came off as boastful, (and therefore gauche) or it's just bitter jealousy.

I thought it was kind of a funny/cute story and felt for both of them, but you're right, the hateorade is indeed flowing.

8 Oh my:

Kyubey: "A 'special feeling.' You people are always going on about that...I don't get it."
