      The title of “White Love” is wrong on a lot of levels…

      • Himi Tsu

        Does it hold a specific meaning in English ? :o
        (Beside well… white and love together :P)

          “White love” is an ideological stance defended by delulu White imperialists to promote White couples/marriages/breeding over mixed ones cause they don’t want their pure Aryan genes to be miwed with low IQ brown/Black people.

            Considering Encha’s response above I think you two are thinking different things. Lol

            “white love” just makes me think of purity and such so for me I don’t see it. I’ve never heard the term the way you’re describing or the way Encha’s implying.

            Oh, it also makes me think of Christmas. LOL I’m hoping it’ll be like a Christmas song because I’ve been wanting JUMP to do a X-mas themed single for forever – just not sure if I want to it to be mature and cool-toned (like GML or Vanilla Ice), or fun and cute (Chinen in a reindeer costume please). Then again, it’ll probably be just a pretty ballad given what it’s for.

              Well, Encha actually upvoted my comment so I think we actually do think about the same thing lol
              You defined the common/normal definitition/symbolism of “white love” while Encha and I were talking about the political one which are really different.

          • Himi Tsu

            I see ! Stupid ideology… Thank you for telling me!

            For sure I didn’t have that in mind when reading the title! I hope they make the meaning clear with the lyrics / PV ^^

        • Encha277

          If you have a dirty mind, there is at least one more interpretation…

          • Himi Tsu

            Ah ah, right, that could be one interpretation XD

            Sometimes I do have a dirty mind but when reading that title, I only saw the purity image of the white.

      • hasawa

        lol I thought the same thing exactly, and I was like “bruh, I spent way too much time on the net”

        I don’t think there’s material to get really mad about it though, it’s Japanese being Japanese with their cheesy ass title songs, it ain’t that deep…

      It’s still their tenth year. Their tenth anniversary was in September, the group is 10 years old until next September.

      • Michie

        Wow, I guess I can’t math anymore. Thanks

        • M

          LOL no problem. I’ve seen the mistake made elsewhere too.

      • Reileen

        Don’t Johnnys groups celebrate their anniversaries on their debut dates? So HSJ’s actual 10th year anniversary is November 2017 – Nov 2018. Yeah, most of it is actually NEXT Year.

        • M

          Maybe, I don’t know lol I just know that the boys were talking a lot about September so I figured. But, they’ll probably celebrate the shit out of November and sing Ultra Music Power 5 times on every show they’re on and do a concert that’s just UMP 25 times in a row. Lol

      “That Is Not a Child But a Minor”
      Typical of what’s some pedo would say *shudders*

    • monica_monami

      I think the English translation of the title should be “I am a minor but I am not a child”. I can’t imagine adult liking this story but teens might find it appealing.

      • Michie

        That’s how I thought the title would be translated too, but that’s what I saw on other sites so I just went with it

    • Paola Mejia

      xDDD I have some confusions about this movie.. aren’t they like in high school in the movie, yet, they get married? is this allowed? xD aren’t they minors? she’s 16 right? xD I don’t mind the fantasy of marrying these hot guys, BUT.. she’s a minor? hahaha

    • Noam Alon

      oh my god i’m not prepared for this!!! i wanna scream!!!!!! ヾ(≧∇≦*)ゝ just saw the trailer and oh my god seeing my babies acting like adults… i’m totally not prepared for this lol may we all get more chances to see the juniors jump into romantic roles AAAMEN!
