Yamada Ryosuke

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

Including the patterned ones, I have an overwhelmingly large amount of black and white clothes. My closet is even ordered by separating the white t-shirts and black t-shirts by colour. Maybe when you first look at them they all look the same but, the designs are different (Lol).

What’s your lucky colour?

Nothing! When I want to get fired up at work I wear red pants (Lol).

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

I actually prefer she doesn’t wear nails. When I see long nails, I end up thinking “Aren’t they a pain in the ass?” (Lol) Because I think hygiene is important too, it’s better to just have your natural nails for stuff like cooking, if she does do her nails then a simple design is best.

What colour represents your personality?

Red. But this is for things I have or when I have a fever. The me at home has a black feeling. Because I don’t actually talk.

What colour represents JUMP?

White. It’s a routine answer but, it’s because I think that white is a colour that can be dyed to become any colour.  We each have our own individual colours but, I think JUMP as a whole is a pure white canvas. Because its white, when we put all kinds of different colours on it shines, doesn’t it.

What colour is your bed spread?

One shade of grey like in a hotel room.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

Grey I guess. It’s not like it’s my favourite colour but, my sofa, and my bed spread, and my carpet are all grey. I guess it’s the colour that I have the most of in my house. Because the carpet in my bedroom is grey, I want it to have a consistent feeling, and if I take notice then there’s a lot.

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Black or a very slightly light brown. I really hate flashy colours. And if it’s a straight, short cut then that’s the best (Lol)!

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

White. Everyone is different, aren’t they? It depends on you and your partner, or it depends on the time or situation. When you fight it might become a cool colour, and when you’re happy it might become a bright colour like pink. It seems more fun to not decide on any one single colour!

Chinen Yuri

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

A lot of my tops and bottoms are black. I actually find it difficult to coordinate colours.

What’s your lucky colour?

If I say that it’s lucky then it won’t be lucky anymore (Lol). But colours don’t make you happy do they (Lol)? But if I have to say something, I guess it’s blue. There are a lot of things in my house that are blue so, it would be nice if there was some luck amongst them (Lol).

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

I think a colour somewhere between red and brown would be girly and nice.

What colour represents your personality?

In terms of my lifestyle, when I’m at home I’m always in the gloom so brown (Lol). When I’m in my bedroom I don’t open the curtains, I can relax better when it’s gloomy. It’s dark it’s relaxing so I can mess around on my computer and stuff (Lol).

What colour represents JUMP?

I don’t think JUMP can be represented by a colour. I don’t want to end it with just one colour, because I want us to be all kind of different colours.

What colour is your bed spread?

My bed has a white mattress with a brown bed spread on it. Because I can’t calm down when there are bright colourful things around me, I prefer kind of dark colours. The feel against my skin is important too so, the fabric has a smooth texture.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

Since I’ve become an adult I’ve naturally accumulated a lot of blue things. The things in my house are blue too.

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

I’ve always said this but, the style I like on girls is a short cut. The colour is black. This hasn’t changed even now. It’s straight too without any curls in it. I guess I like it because it’s great to look at.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

The only colour that comes to mind for love is red (Lol). I think it’s because whether it’s romantic love, family or friends love is always warm. Even though it’s red it’s not a burning red, it’s a heart-warming gentle red, isn’t it?

Nakajima Yuto

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

Because I have a lot of jeans, I have a lot of navy and blue but, I like tops in shades of navy, and brown, and chic colours. I separate my closet by genre.

What’s your lucky colour?

I feel an affinity when I see light blue so maybe it’s my lucky colour?

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

U—m… This is hard (Lol). If the girl has a colour or design that she likes, then I don’t care what design it is. But, I kinda hate colours that are too flashy… I think a single, pastel colour is nice.

What colour represents your personality?

An iridescent colour. Because it becomes a different colour depending on what angle you look at it from. I also want to become someone who can change all different colours.

What colour represents JUMP?

Red, yellow, orange. What springs to mind, is everyone’s individual colours coming together to make rainbow colour but, thinking about how we all get on so well together, then of course a bright colour would be best. When these three colours overlap, I think JUMP’s unique colour will be born.

What colour is your bed spread?

Black cotton. I’m using the sheets I bought recently.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

Light blue. I can’t help reacting when I see it, I think it’s become my colour.  So, looking up at the sky feels great!

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Black or dark brown. I like calm colours. But, dying just one section feels kind of exotic, maybe I’m being influenced by the not myself culture. For the styling, I like stray hairs. Casual hair like this feels like you’re seeing someone’s weak side in a good way.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

Green. Family bonds, I think that as we see each other grow, we take our time to gently look after each other. From my point of view, it’s naturally growing together like a bud turns into a young leaf. And, green feels like a totally calming colour.

Arioka Daiki

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

Pretty much black and white. I classify my closet by colour. I guess I play around with unique sneakers in all different colours.

What’s your lucky colour?

Red I guess! At work when I’m like “I’m gonna give my everything today!” or “I’m gonna work even harder than usual today, and get great results!”, on these do-or-die days, I wear red underpants as if they’re my winner’s pants and take it on.

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

The colour that she likes, or the colour that suits her is fine. As long as her nails don’t look like a witch’s then they’re fine (Lol). Because then I’ll be nervous that they’ll get broken. Natural colours like beige are nice.

What colour represents your personality?

I’ve decided I want to be a bright, energetic person so, orange!

What colour represents JUMP?

Marble. Because we all have our own different colours. But, it’s not a beautiful arrangement of colours like a rainbow, all the colours are mixed up together, sometimes they’re exciting and the colour scheme is unique but, I think that’s like us.

What colour is your bed spread?

White. It’s a smooth, silky kind of fabric that feels great against my skin. I want my whole room to feel like a hotel room.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

I’ve liked orange ever since I was a kid. It’s my member colour too but, because my member colour became the colour that was already my favourite, I’m really lucky! I get really excited when I find clothes or accessories with orange linings!

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Semi-long chestnut colour. It seems easy to style.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

Red. Love starts as a pale pink and turns into red, and of course I think the strong bonds between family and friends, become a deep red colour. The colour of love is always changing so, I think it’s hard to say that it’s bright red right from the time that you first meet.

Takaki Yuya

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

Black and white. I don’t have much interest in clothes so these colours are easy to coordinate.

What’s your lucky colour?

I haven’t ever noticed one~. There’s not a colour I wear when I want to get myself fired up either. If I had to say something then I guess it’s black. Because I have a habit of often wearing black. It’s not lucky or anything but, because I have fun every day, I guess black is my lucky colour.

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

Pale pink. No decorations, just a mild feeling is best.

What colour represents your personality?

Maybe clear. Because it changes depending on how I’m feeling at the time. It’s easy to for me to express how I’m feeling, like when I’m in a bad mood, or a good mood, when I’m quiet, or when I’m in high spirits. At that moment, it can change in an instant so I don’t know what colour it is (Lol).

What colour represents JUMP?

The blue colour of the sky, sky blue. Because even though we’re quite mature, we are still seen as a young, innocent group (Lol).

What colour is your bed spread?

Blue. But, I’m not really fussed about the colour or the fabric. Since no-one sees my bedroom I think that anything is fine, and choose things instantly. This is generally how I always choose things.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

White. Because it feels hygienic. I feel like I unconsciously like it.

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Black. Black is nice so, I like pure people who look good with black hair. I think people who are pure, and have a natural feeling are great. I like long hair and short hair. I think people who know what style suits them are charming.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

It’s pretty orthodox but, red means passion. I think love is something we do with our own passion like “I would sacrifice myself for the person I love”. Those kind of personal passionate feelings are red in colour.

Inoo Kei

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

I have a lot of black.  I want an even deeper, jet black gloom, and I end up choosing black (Lol). When I sorted out the clothes I didn’t need just before, my closet was in chaos. I thought “I have to clean these up”, and didn’t end up throwing anything away.

What’s your lucky colour?

Nothing. I hate that way of thinking about things like lucky colours, or items. I don’t want things to be decided for me~!

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

Nothing- (Lol). Because boys have no interest in nails, anything is fine! But I don’t want you to be like “I used this colour because Inoo-kun likes it”. I think it’s fine to paint them in the colour you like.

What colour represents your personality?

Brown I guess. Because I think that it’s the colour of earth, and I’m an earthling.

What colour represents JUMP?

Ochre. The image is hard to express in words but, when I think about what everyone might be doing on their days off its ochre. On work days… it’s ochre too (Lol). I guess because it’s a colour that has the brightness of yellow, and the calming factor of brown?

What colour is your bed spread?

White. But I didn’t buy it with any particular awareness of the colour. Apart from white, I have a beige one too!

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

Nothing. I have a lot of black clothes but, it’s not like I particularly like black. I’ve never felt like I like certain colours. Because I don’t want to be tied down by a favourite or lucky colour. I just think, that I don’t suit things with patterns (Lol).

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Straight, pink hair. Is there a girl out there with this (Lol)?

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

I think love can decide to be any colour. The colour of love is different for everyone, because it’s something that changes when people are facing each other, or when people are dating. Because even the same colour, darkens and fades. I think having lots of different colours is best!

Yaotome Hikaru

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

I choose clothes with the designs I like, and as a result I’ve ended up with pretty much all monotone.

What’s your lucky colour?

Yellow is the colour I like so I think it’s my lucky colour but, maybe it’s red (Lol). Since the famous fortune teller Shimada Shuhei said it’s red, I’ve noticed that my “Hirunandesu!” outfits have become red too (Lol).

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

Something shiny with both a young and mature feel, like champagne gold.

What colour represents your personality?

Silver. Silver is bright and shiny, and oxidised silver is an elegant colour too, because the one colour can transform into all kinds of others, it has a usual gentle part to it but, you can actually see a surprisingly mature part to it too and I think this kind of colour suits me.

What colour represents JUMP?

A blue that represents that we are still young and inexperienced (Lol). (t/n: this is the same as saying someone is “green” in English). But, as we continue to grow I want to show you a different colour.

What colour is your bed spread?

Brown. I think brown is the most soothing colour. The base of my bed is a deep brown colour too, because having a bedroom with an environment I can sleep well in is important it’s a colour that makes me feel at ease. The curtains are cream.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

My member colour yellow. But it’s a difficult colour to wear.

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Not pure black but not reddish, I like a not too brown dark olive brown. Because something about this colour, gives a soothing impression. A length of generally down to her collar bones, and a straight style with no waves is OK.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

Rainbow. I think that love is rainbow coloured. It has a red part that is the passion you have when you fall in love with your partner, when you get into a fight and have complicated feelings it’s purple, and when you’re happy a bright yellow. I think it can be expressed in all kinds of different colours depending on the emotions and circumstances at the time.

Yabu Kota

What colour clothes do you have a lot of?

Black, and grey I guess. They’re inoffensive, protective colours (Lol). Because they’re calming. And, I like a simple blue colour too. We wear costumes that are all kinds of different colours and I’m used to flashy colours too but, my personal clothes are different. Even if something is available in different colours, I end up choosing black or grey.

What’s your lucky colour?

Red. It’s the colour of my favourite soccer team so, it gets me fired up!

What colour nails does the girl you like have?

Two or three gems would be nice. For the colour whatever colour she likes is fine but, I think it’s stylish when the colour matches her clothes and accessories. Like if she has a pearl ring, and she matches it with pearly nails.

What colour represents your personality?

Rainbow maybe~. I’m pretty moody so, depending on the day I can be silent, or high energy.

What colour represents JUMP?

Something like mousey grey, like that colour when you mix too many colours together and you don’t know what colour it is any more (Lol). Because all the members say what they think, and its chaotic. Because it’s quite a chaos, it’s a confusing colour of all kinds of colours being put in and mixed together (Lol).

What colour is your bed spread?

Brown. Because it’s calming. I have about two, or three of the same.

What’s your favourite colour at the moment?

A deep blue like indigo or navy. I’ve started liking it since I’ve become an adult. But in the end, maybe it’s because it’s a blue that looks like it’s black. I’m into blue clothes but, bright blue is a bit… like that. I have no courage in choosing brightly coloured clothes (Lol).

What colour hair does the girl you like have?

Any colour is fine but the shine is important! Like longer than shoulder length and silky.

What colour comes to mind when you hear “The Colour of Love”?

Orange. Oranges, and sunflowers, the bath salts at my parents’ house (Lol).  Orangey kind of colours have an image of family love. The orange colour of the setting sun, it’s got quite a comfortable feeling that warms you up, doesn’t it? That feeling is the feeling of a family’s love.
