    Two of my friends also liked her. So pang-inggit, I went to this Shibuya cafe, where Mizuki works.

    I rehearsed what I would tell Mizuki, in Japanese, :) excited for a selfie video with her.

    Alas, she wasn't there the afternoon I went. But apparently, she worked later that day, in the evening. Boo.

    I would have waited, had it been ロレンサイ;)

    So funny but Tap was kinda low key jerk. I think very few people rooted for him. He was a bit judgmental and it seems that his treatment of Mizuki resulted in a twitter backlash

    "Fuyumi" is a play on "Natsumi".

    Natsu is the Japanese word for summer. Winter is fuyu. The others referred to her (jokingly) as Fuyumi probably because some of her comments were cold as winter. :)

    And no, Tap wasn't being insensitive; he was just being himself. He had no intent to hurt or put down Mizuki, although that was not how it was perceived by many. What he said came naturally to a teacher whose world entails cracking the whip all day to drive students to excel. But well-meaning intentions can be perceived the wrong way, especially in Asia, because it is covered with onion-skin. :)

    We all live in different worlds, and see things differently. The goal is to understand why others see the world as they do, not judge them for seeing it differently—which is why I *loved* Hansan; he gets that. Totally. :)

    Thats a cool bit of info about Natsu and Fuyu. Thats quite witty!

    Tap only spoke whats on his mind but his callous comments did paint him as a blunt, judgmental guy. I think he only stopped because Yuriko cried.

    Can't disagree with Hansan. How he handled Natsumi (IMO the hardest one to understand) had me in awe.

    ^quirks of an artist. when you get to aloha state, you will see that again, but 100x prettier. :)

    just came back from japan. and my love for that country grew even more. most of the "nastiness" (tap's, natsumi's, makoto's, riccochan's, et al) in terrace house is west. han-san is east.

    Oooh! I was postponing Aloha State but that 100x prettier made me curious..

    Too bad you didn't get that selfie with Mizuki.

    Is there any chance Netflix would sub the earlier seasons? I've always been curious about that guy Tetsuya. Seems the panel love to make fun of him and he keeps getting mentioned in B&GitC

    Want more incentive? 100x prettier isn't even Japanese—I knew that as soon as I heard her surname, Tsai. If nothing about "hot chinita" excites you, your family should disown you. :D
    Doubt it. Previous TH seasons are Fuji TV, not Netflix. So unless Netflix buys the rights for those too, official English subtitles are unlikely. But hey, there's a hot chinita waiting. :)
