Ayaka Komatsu’s first date on “Last Kiss” (English fansub)


“Last Kiss” is a Japanese celebrity dating show; two celebrities go on a blind date and the camera follows them to capture the unscripted moments. The episode on 8 December 2015 featured Ayaka on her first date with Yuki Kimisawa and they spent the day and evening at Enoshima. Ayaka provided “after-action” commentary to explain her thoughts and feelings during the date.

The show was hosted by DAIGO, now Keiko Kitagawa’s husband; at the time of the episode the marriage was yet to be announced but was an open secret; the banter between DAIGO and his celebrity commentary panel made reference to him being connected to Ayaka as both Ayaka and Keiko were previously cast as Sailor Guardians.
