Naoya is more talkative than his brother and gives some of the sexiest expressions. He is as silly and funny as his brother but unlike his brother is not cryptive in blog entries and not very detailed about what he is talking about. By fans often called "Naoya" or "Nao" for short. He is seen as more masculine than his brother and like his brother notes he is the older one when introducing himself. Also, Naoya cannot seem to sleep without pajamas to the point of that he will sleep with them under clothes if he must. Overall, he is a Japanese heartthrob, how can you not *glomp that?

*For those who don't know what glomp is, it is a pounce-like hug normally done when one is excited which may cause the one being hugged to fall taking the bugger with them.
