|Shoko-chan and Nino|
Back in December, Ninomiya Kazunari, made his very first appearance on the animal variety show, “Tensai! Shimura Doubutsuen“. Fangirls and animal lovers alike couldn’t get enough of his guest appearance, so Ninomiya made a return to the show for its January 22nd episode.
Just like in his previous episode, the Nino went out with the female comedian duo, “Harisenbon“, to look for cute baby animals. On this broadcast, however, one particular animal got the his special attention.
Ninomiya received a letter from fellow groupmate, Aiba Masaki, in which Aiba introduces a cute female kangaroo baby to Ninomiya. The baby was still unnamed, and so Aiba had asked Ninomiya to pick one for her. Considering how it was so close to groupmate Sakurai Sho’s birthday (January 25th), Ninomiya decided upon the name, “Shoko”, in his honor.
Aiba also sent Ninomiya a DVD which teaches him how to play with the kangaroo.
