That day, the two members of “Indians” were making a guest appearance at the solo live show of their senior comedian, “Henderson.
After achieving success in the awards race in their hometown of Osaka, “Indians” entered the Tokyo market in 2004, and had been performing for three consecutive years until last year. The winning duo has been a finalist in the “M-1 Grand Prix” for three consecutive years until last year, and are sought out not only for comedy events hosted by Yoshimoto, but also for live performances by their colleagues.
When the live show ended after 8:30 p.m., Akihiro Tabuchi (37), who is in charge of the bokeh, went straight home.
Tabuchi, who is known for his energetic, machine-gun-like delivery, was not at all exhausted from his hard schedule. In fact, the opposite was true. As soon as Tabuchi hurried home, a beautiful woman with a slit in her breast and skirt appeared from the darkness. She entered the room where he was waiting.
The woman Tabbutchan invited into the room was Suzume Mino (26).
She is a popular actress exclusive to the “FALENO Group” with 93 cm G cups.
Suzume is a fan of “Indians” and often goes to their live shows, and they were introduced by a mutual acquaintance. They are both from Hyogo Prefecture and both former sportsmen, so I guess they hit it off,” said Tabuchi’s acquaintance.
Mino has released seven works so far this year under the “DAHLIA” label, which specializes in ladies’ wear. She is as machine-gun as Tabuchi. Incidentally, her stage name “Bino” comes from her encounter with Mino Monta (77) on the bullet train when she took the Shinkansen on her way to Tokyo.
Let us return to Tabuchi’s home.
The day after the sleepover, Tabuchi had a live concert starting at 10:30 a.m., but he left his house just after 9:15 a.m., just in time to be late. Tabuchi must have had a high-tension night, because he rubbed his sleepy eyes and headed for the venue.
It was a few weeks later when I ran into them again. Tabuchi came out of a bar in the basement of a commercial building with his eyes downcast, and Mino was right behind him.
Perhaps concerned that she was attracting the attention of drunken customers, Tabuchi did not take it well when Mino entwined her arms around him and whispered love in his ear, but he was unable to stop …… grinning.
I hit Tabuchi when he returned to the love nest.
–You are dating Mino-san, aren’t you?
“I’m not dating ……! We are just drinking buddies who met a few months ago.”
–Do you have any chance of developing a relationship with her?
“We get along well, but so far we haven’t talked about it.
–You stayed over together?
“We drank at home!”
–I heard that you haven’t had a girlfriend for 9 years.
It’s been almost 10 years! I’m a bit of a twisted man. But now my main focus is work. This year, I will be conscious of winning the “M-1″ championship!”
Mino also answered that Tabuchi is her “drinking buddy.
He is a very kind and considerate gentleman. He is a good listener, so he is like a big brother to me. He is also the best commentator on Ghibli in the world.
If he and Mino form a meat-and-potatoes duo, it will give them a boost on their way to winning the “M-1” championship.
