Mr. Ikeda is a fan of Aarin（Ayaka Sasaki）, a member of idol group Momoiro Clover Z.
He began to wear pink clothes, saying that pink, her official member color, pumps him up.
During one New Year’s holiday, he went to his wife’s parents’ house, wearing pink clothes to invigorate himself before greeting them.
This was a crazy judgment. His common sense was paralyzed. The father-in-law looked at his son-in-law wearing pink and shuddered.
He said to his daughter, “I can’t go out together with Makoto wearing such clothes.”
The daughter, sighing, made her husband in pink change his clothes. In fact, the daughter was already paralyzed, too.
Mr. Ikeda told me to write about him and MomoClo (Momoiro Clover Z) from early on.
Although I was once steamrollered into writing it, I was worried about the reaction of my acquaintances and I was not able to step forward to post the Monogatari of Mr. Ikeda’s photo collection of MomoClo readily.
At the very time when I was hesitating, I heard the news that Momoka Ariyasu, a member of MomoClo, would leave this group.
It was said that she would retire from the company and leave the entertainment world, saying “I want to become a normal girl”.
I didn’t even image that Momoka, who had great talent, would ever disappear. During the Momo-Clo concerts I went with Mr. Ikeda, I always cheered for her.
The sense of loss is big, and the attitude of the members who are left behind and try hard to look forward touches my heart.
Unexpectedly, the objective this time became to look back on MomoClo’s history and wish them good luck.
I must devote myself into this beyond all sense of shame.
Though I don’t want to call Mr. Ikeda a complete fool, I can’t deny that he is a little foolish. I will present you with his Aarin photo collection this time.
