SKE48 Idol to Fans: “Use Deodorant!”


Kaori Matsumura (an SKE48 idol given stuffed animals with peculiar stains as gifts) has enlightened ill-mannered fans in the ways of hygiene due to an issue at a recent event, with the determined girl requesting that event-goers please apply deodorant so as to not stink up the place.

Addressing the “very serious” problem of foul body odor that occurred at a recent handshaking event, Kaori Matsumura informed her fans of various types of deodorant via her Twitter account:




“Thank you all for coming out to the handshake event. We received a complaint about a serious problem.

One of the female fans who was waiting in line to shake our hands said she couldn’t stand the smell in the venue, and asked if anything could be done about it.

It’s hard for people to notice their own body odor. It’s something those of us in SKE48 have to be careful about too!

So let’s pick up these two items at the drugstore and take care of the problem!”

Naturally many are surprised that the idol had to inform fans about such a basic act of human decency; though considering idol otaku in particular are known for gross lifestyles and lazy tendencies, perhaps such an event was inevitable once disgust overcome the promise of lightening their collective wallets further still:

“Otaku smell by default.”

“They may want to consider putting Fabreze at the entrance.”

“Do gross otaku think its cool to not bathe?”

“Women’s perfume and cosmetics are also smelly.”

“Otaku have had issues with odor for quite some time.”

“It’s because you make people wait long times in such hot weather.”

“Can I complain if there’s a case where one of the idol’s has body odor?”

    What do they expect from something as creepy as a "handshake event"?

    These guys smell cos they don't give a fuck anymore. They know they ain't getting pussy so why not smell? Like really, if you are down in the gutter socially then why even bother. Other thing is it's probably hot in there and they are sweating cos they are meeting the thing the obsess about so increased sweat pouring out.

    And yes it must smell like ass but when your profits are made from people who don't have life and are probably suicidal then this is what you get.

    have to say il never figgure why the whole idol crap is a thing there.
    They sound like cats screetching when they sing,they got overinflated ego despite theyr expiration date.
    And theres idiots paying them and running to handshake events and shit.
    Also sancom needs to get back on the trend of exploding chinese stuff,and drop the idol news into the trashcan where they belong.

    Now is the time then instead of having #Handshake events to have #Shower events where the police can hoses them all down under high pressure then spray them with 1/2 gallon of deodorant before they enter the meeting room.

    They should use a good antiperspirant. It really isn't that much effort for the gains it'd give.

    Well if you like your idol so much, it would be nice to come to the events clean and tidy to demonstrate how much you like to be close to your idol and make your idol like you much more.

    Of course not, they need the money for idol goods so they can get the tickets to even go to these events.

    If you just spent an hour and a half in a boiling hot event hall doing the equivalent of a cardio workout you'd probably smell to....deodorant or not. either get better air-con in live houses and halls or don't over fill venues to the point that people become sardines.I don't think the wota's get 20 minutes to go and towel off and spray deodorant and perfume like the idols do either, just another case of people stereotyping fans of Japanese subculture.

    You clearly never saw any of such events. Stereotypes are not born out of thin air.

    Yo clearly have not gone to many "massive" events. When you get too many people together for too long, they STINK, no matter what you do. Even if it's a calm event for little girls, maki it last too long or make people qeue too much time and it's bound to happen.
    Worked a few years in one of the biggest event companies around here, know the problem firsthand. And how to solve it, too.

    I wonder how festivals smell like, I've never been to one SOBER so I don't know. You can't smell people while drunk.

    I honestly don't think the odor is worse than in any concert on closed doors or in any theater or any disco on saturday night or any LP signature event.

    Here in the west you see that kind of warns in those sites too. I live near the beach and lot of restaurants have that kind of warning (together with the no enter without tshirt or with bare feet or shower before entering).

    What I mean is, yes, there is people with odor issues but this not something of disgusting otaku idols, its a general issue that you can find everywhere.

    You ever been to a Smash Bros. tournament? There are 3 kinds of people in this world: Those that don't smell bad, those that smell bad, and those that smell like they belong in the Smash room at a fighting game tourney.

    Your CAREER depends on male losers. You really want them to clean up, get a girlfriend, and stop giving you attention and money?

    It's just like famous people who complain they can't go out in public without getting swarmed by fans. Go wipe your tears with your 100 dollar bills.

    If you think deodorant will get these guys a girlfriend so they can stop paying to shake hands with girls, you've watched too many of those Axe ads...

    I guess they're going the extra mile this time, now being near otaku is a problem too. I guess there's still got to be some kind of effort from the idols since otaku are giving them their money and all.

    What do you expect from someone waiting in a queue often a whole day?
    That is the true nature of these idols, give me your money and stay away from me.

    They do not care anymore about pretending in front of the fans .. (yes some are really weird)
    It's feminism, which makes them think it's a sacred privilege you spend all your wages, to be in front of those bimbos !! (even more so if you lean your hand)

    And there are still those who argue: those poor innocent girls coerced by their maleficent producers!

    Money is nice but for the price of sanity and sanitary becomes too much overtime.

    No excuse and I'm a sweater, their are many modern products that will completely prevent any BO even after intense workouts, stressful situations, or less then clean people. This is not the 1700's, people should smell like nothing or a gentle pleasant sent, anything else is poor hygiene and a lack of caring, plain and simple.

    You don't even need modern products, salt is one of the best deodorants there is and we've had that for almost as long as we've had farming.

    A convention goer's starter pack should always includes the following:

    Deodorant, apply once in the morning, and once more in the afternoon.
    Purell. Because you dirty.
