Meet the Housemates of Terrace House: Aloha State!

Lately there has been a buzz in the air for the upcoming season Terrace House. Unlike the previous seasons that have taken place in Japan, the series production has been moved to Hawaii. And like the change in scenery we have a change in faces again. As mentioned in a previous article, Terrace House places 6 strangers in a house together for a month each season. This means new people and new personalities. Come meet the occupants of Terrace House: Aloha State!

      Wait so it’s going to be in English now? They’re all so young though. Wish they had a hottie like Uchihara Tatsuya or Yukawa Masato this time too :(

      • Thomas
        • bailey darbii

          hmmmmm he was just so sensitive

          hanasan is where it’s at.

          • Thomas

            Hmm I thought Han-san was a bit too perfect! I’d rather date a sensitive guy whose flaws are more obvious. But Han-san was good-looking too!

            • bailey darbii

              hansan smoking and listening to natsumi was everything, i dedicated my eyes to him at that point.

          • Lupita San

            OMGGGG Hansan was the best!!! ughh!!! the type of guy I like <3

        • atralail

          Uchi can get it

        • PinotNoir10

          Uchi may have been good looking, but when the hosts made fun of his high-pitched voice, that’s all I thought about whenever he had scenes in the show. Also, he’s not ideal bf material bc he prob has at least 5 girlfriends at same time. lol Uchi is more of a fuckboy.

          Also, is Terrace House actually popular in Japan? Just wondering bc Idk.

          • Thomas

            I actually liked his high-pitched voice! I thought it was cute.

            Not sure about how faithful he is either 😭!

            Hmm it was really popular when it first started and the YouTube channel is one of the most subscribed to in Japan if I recall correctly. Not sure if the show is still as popular but they’ve got a fanbase + international exposure thanks to Netflix so it’ll most likely go on for some seasons!

      • Juhina

        i def love Yuki <3 him and Misaki were so cute!

        • Thomas

          Hmm Yuuki looks almost exactly like my ex so he’s a big no-no for me! But I liked his character too and Misaki is one of my all-time faves. Will miss having her around in the new season

    • マシュマロ :3

      where else can i watch this beside netflix??

      • マシュマロ :3

        and the other seasons too?

    • Bree

      Does anyone know with certainty whether it’ll be available on Netflix worldwide today?

      • It’s up there! You have to search for it using the complete title.

        • Bree

          I’ve tried that, there are still no episodes available, it must also be not available in Australia until next year… the devastation is real.

      • L Koshka

        It’s not avalable in the USA till Jan 1 2017. It ihas just been released in other countries on Nov 1

    • bailey darbii

      if it ain’t a japanese cast then i ain’t watching

      also that guy’s hair line is trying to escape

      • Gggggggggg

        The only thing going for it in USA was it being a different culture and now it’s just gonna be Americans with a specific color.

        So it’s pointless and racist lol

        • On

          … racist how?

        • Gg

          How is it racist?

      • Violinvixen 👄

        Yea like most of them are from the USA ..to Americanized ..I like it cos the cast was mostly from Japan n lived there,I was exploring the culture through them not someone from Washington state ..ugh!!

        • L Koshka

          Same, exactly. I’ll still watch but I liked it for similar reasons that you state. I already know what it’s like in USA. :/

          • H

            But I think the show is aired in Japan and was originally made for Japanese audiences (I think I remember watching it with subtitles on YouTube before it came to Netflix), so maybe they feel the same way and want to learn about what it’s like other places?

            Besides, they’re from a mixture of places. It looks like three of them are from places in the U.S. and three are from places in Japan. It looks like they can learn from each other and will have interesting insights. (Sorry, I know that sounds cheesy.) Like, all of the ones from the U.S. are Asian (obviously) and at least 1 and probably 2 of the cast members from Japan appear to be not fully Japanese, so it might be interesting if they talked about what it’s like to be a minority in the U.S. vs in Japan.

    • atralail

      thank you, Ariane for posting this. Much appreciated!

      these 18 years old flock around in that house :o

    • Dylan

      They need to have more diversity on this show.. like what about someone who is LGBTQ? I got halfway through the last season and it was just so boring because it was the “Real World” minus the fighting

      • Gggggggg

        Lol you define a person by their sexuality? And rate how interesting they are from it?

        • Dylan

          How was I defining someone by their sexuality? I didn’t say “They need more fags”. And the interest doesn’t come from them being gay, it comes from having a varied group of people. I am not the largest fan of the show, but I am pretty sure they have yet to put anyone who is LGBTQ on it.

          • Violinvixen 👄

            Dude just go away with the LGBT stuff ok!!

      • Violinvixen 👄

        Omfg ..y everything has to be diverse for gays!!!

      • bailey darbii

        have you seen japanese tv? they don’t do lgbtq nicely. but netflix runs it now so maybe in the future

        • Dylan

          I have seen some japanese TV, its make me sad to see how they represent some LGBTQ people with shows like “Hard Gay”. They don’t even have to add in LGBTQ but could maybe have a variety of ethnic backgrounds in the house like someone who is from the states but now lives in Japan and etc.

      • Juhina

        it’s a japanese show…. in japan.. i watch it b/c i’m more interested in japanese culture and how japanese people live their life. I can’t stand shows like Real World.. everyone is just too dramatic.

    • Violinvixen 👄

      Its November 1st n I don’t see any episode on Netflix..so all the new cast are from USA ? Cmon I like it filmed in Japan!!!

      • It’s up there! You have to search for it using the complete title.

        • Violinvixen 👄

          Thank you but Netflix only allows certain amount of characters tho

          • L Koshka

            It doesn’t start in the USA till Jan 1 2017

            • Violinvixen 👄

              O ok thank you ..are at other sites to watch it ?

              • L Koshka

                I don’t know of any & Netflix is making it pretty impossible to try and watch it on Japan’s Netflix if you are in the USA. Looks like we have to wait 2 months.

          • Are you typing on the TV or your computer? I did it on my TV and it works.

            • Violinvixen 👄

              Yes I found it ..but there are no episodes loaded ..

            • L Koshka

              Ariane are you in Japan?

    • L Koshka

      Arianne, it’s not in the USA yet though. Not till Jan 1st. Or is this post just for Japan?

    • L Koshka

      Does anyone know what “Terrace House: Closing Door” is? It’s showing up when you search Terrace House as “Titles related to”. Because it just started showing Terrace House Aloha State in that section – I guess bcs it will soon be released in the USA. So are they possibly going to release earler seasons of Terrace House called Terrace House: Closing Door?

      • vragile

        Terrace House: Closing Door is actually a movie spun off a member from the previous Terrace House seasons (before it got adapted on Netflix). I think the premise was focused on this specific male member trying to win one of the female member over. It’s like when a drama is really loved and gets an extra hour long SP as an extension.

        • L Koshka

          Thank you!

    • bailey darbii

      was anyone else creeped by the 18 year old and 30 year old…..????? just me? ok.

      • L Koshka

        bailey ~ not just you. I honestly viewed him as a manipulative pedophile type, always showed up if she talked to any other guys (controlling), messed with her mind, made pity plays. Honestly was a bit grossed out with Netflix for putting such an old guy at the same time as a high school student. Maybe I know too much about these types. But no, not just you.

        • bailey darbii

          it was so bad! everyone acted like it was normal. um……

          and hikaru dating 40+ year old women? no one batted an eye. like I can not.

      • Violinvixen 👄

        n to find out there were sneaking in the middle of the night was even more gross..also at the last episode did u see how close they were sitting n as soon as the camera panned on them they pulled away,I think the whole breaking up thing was also fake!!

        • bailey darbii

          omg when arman said they were sneaking around since 1 month ago I screamed!

          • Violinvixen 👄

            The mom was clearly all for it ,cos she was gushing over him when she visited the house!!

            • L Koshka

              yeah, I thought she came to give him the evil eye but she was fawning. I was very confused about the whole situation. At first the commentators seemed like really disgusted with him, then they were like, “but it’s okay that they were in bed together.” ??? At that point I was just like whatever. I don’t believe anything the commentators say anymore. :S

              • Violinvixen 👄

                That whole situation was really off..I guess being 18 made it ok!

              • Violinvixen 👄

                Are you excited to see it on Netflix in January?😃

    • ohhello

      anyone, updates on past teraha couples pls

    • Violinvixen 👄

      Can someone please post an international link to view this 😂😂

    • H

      Wait do people keep saying they’re all from the U.S? 3 of the hometown listed are U.S. and 3 are Japan. (Sort of interesting that all the men are Japanese and all the women are American.)

    • yamakita

      Half of them are hafu…

    • L Koshka

      Well, a few more weeks for US. Unless everyone else found out how to watch it.

    • Briana Nichole Archer

      I would have been overjoyed to see Arman and Martha again since it is Hawaii and Arman was going back home to Hawaii and I still want to see their relationship flourish since they got together in the end. I foolishly thought maybe it would be them and 4 new people

      • Alice A

        I wouldn’t mind seeing them in an episode! It’d be cool to see what they’re up to :)

    • Dee Dee

      I loved part 1 can’t wait for part 2

    • Violinvixen 👄

      Terrace house is on ppl ..can’t wait for us to start chatting about every episode ..so far what’s everyone’s thoughts???!!!

    • Saitama san

      I fucking hated Arman, he was a lazy little shit. No idea why morons left and right feel the need to suck his dick.

    • Stock Trader Chia

      Yusuke’s a really nice guy, very talented. He probably didn’t come off very manly, these girls were really young… but one day the girls will grow up to realize they missed out and you meet a bunch of hardcore jerks like me. LOL!. Probably the worst season ever the show has made and it really is because of the American culture. It’s very fast pace and everyone’s basically a major bitch or jerk lol. That’s just how society is in the western hemisphere and I honestly believed most of the cast on it just applied to be on TV. They should of done it in Australia or London and keep it on the eastern hemisphere. Watching this… was like watching me be a jerk…urgh ew lol.

      • L Koshka

        Agree 100% about Yusuke and that later these girls & think Why didn’t I get to know that really sweet guy. lol. It’s just what I’m realizing now. Looks, shallowness & “coolness” have a really short shelf life. Plus the shallow guys will later get tired of ANY girl no matter how beautiful she is. I’m not a fan of how Lauren treated Yusuke after the movie either. Personally I think Yusuke can do better. Maybe that’s something he needs to learn also. He kept talking about how creative she was but I just see her acting robotic, even when she’s drawing. This is what I knew would happen having it in the states. Boring, bland, shallow. And I’m american. :) *sigh* Think I’ll just watch BGITC again. :/

    • Gg

      I really wanna see what the next girl will look like!!!!! Maybe she will like Yusuke and make Lauren jealous?! Ohhh that would be awesome to see just because of how Lauren was a bitch to Yusuke.

      • L Koshka

        Now that I would enjoy watching! You just motivated me to stick around and see what plays out.

        • Gg

          Haha! Lauren better watch her back when this new girl come cause she might even steal the person she likes😏
