Interviewer: What is the scariest thing in the world for you?
Hosoya: I may be contradicting myself, but I’m going to say women. I have this belief that as a standard, women won’t stay on your side. As expected, I know absolutely nothing about the opposite sex (lol). But it’s because I find women scary, I want to treasure that one person who will tell me that they love me.
Interviewer: What kind of woman would be the type to soothe you?
Hosoya: Someone who will protect me. It’s probably because “to protect” is something you do with intent and means that they will truly cherish me. If that person existed, then I would want to protect them as well.
Interviewer: That sounds great.
Hosoya: I don’t have a mother. Ever since I could remember I was told that she passed away, but when I was 18 and about to go to Tokyo to study in an arts institute, my dad told me, “Actually, she’s still alive.” At that point, I never thought about wanting to meet her. But around the time when I passed the age of 30, I began to feel that I was missing something. They aren’t feelings of sadness or pain over not having a mother, but rather, if I did have one I would probably be a different person from the one I am today.
Interviewer: Are you perhaps attracted to the idea of “family”?
Hosoya: My wish to marry is probably strong. And that’s most likely because I have this idea that a family is something that I can build with my own will.
