'Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020': Toshiyuki Niino's creepy and psychotic behavior leaves fans squirming
If you have been following 'Terrace House Tokyo: 2019-2020' Part 3 that recently dropped on Netflix, you would know about entrepreneur Toshiyuki Niino and his weird obsession with Yume Yoshida, a swimsuit model who also entered the show in the later episodes of the season.
Yume entered the show before him and the rest of the housemates made sure Toshiyuki knew about her since he had mentioned that he is into "slender" girls. Another housemate Hana Kimura also added that she had "big boobs" and upon hearing it, Toshiyuki mentioned that he's totally looking forward to meeting Yume. The boob talk later continued into the boys' room when Kai and Toshiyuki were speaking about Yume and there was also some talk of Kabedon (a popular Japanese mating ritual).
Toshiyuki showed his creepy side at the very first meeting with Yume. In his effort to come across as erotic, he was drinking out of her beer bottle with his mouth around the rim. Even the panelists were left scandalized after watching that move. In one of the episodes, Yume and Shion Okamoto were in the playroom when Toshiyuki stood outside the room trying to eavesdrop. He just stood there with his hands in his pockets with a blank expression and didn't move till they came out. He later trapped her inside the playroom until she agreed to come on a date with him. He also did some ab crunches in front of her while in a drunken state.
The worst was when he managed to take Yume out on a date to Odaiba. Yume mentioned that she doesn’t go to Odaiba often and Toshiyuki casually replied with, "I got your Rainbow Bridge virginity." Yume, however, took that comment sportingly but his next move was way more bizarre.
He gifted her a lip balm, opened it and even started to apply it on her lips. He rubbed it all over her upper lip area and chin and then with the same finger he rubbed the leftover balm on his lips. He later leaned in and planted a kiss on her lip, without asking for consent. Yume later told the girls about what happened and she made it clear that she "didn't fall" for him after that kiss.
Toshiyuki has not only managed to singlehandedly creep the panelists and Yume and the rest of the housemates but also left the audiences flabbergasted at home. People following the show have taken to Twitter and are expressing their anger towards his behavior.
One fan wrote, "I can't wait for the rest of the world to see these latest terrace house eps bc toshiyuki is literally psychotic and i need to yell abt it."
