Have you ever feel a sense of inferiority to the female friends?I, I’m delicate regardless of the apparent (laughs).  Inferiority complex is, is not it too much to say to have crazy feeling.

Do you feel in what place? It is the appearance. In particular, it was a student, it is high stature was the complex. Because it is personality that will not stop if you begin to care, starting from the height, it had been a fine thing mind like nobody cares.

Have you ever feel a sense of inferiority even now? Okay. Now I’m in the entertainment industry its like another dimension. Changing the negative ones into the positive is, I think, its important in this world.  So as not to feel a sense of inferiority.
