Manners more attractive than boobs, says Mika Kano

85 Comments

Celebrity Mika Kano this week released her first essay book “Oppai ni Tsumatte Irumono" (Something beyond boobs), giving women tips on how to be more attractive. Kano says manners make a woman a more attractive person than physical features.

“I hope this book will be a sort of hint for women how to conduct themselves in public so that they will be at their attractive best."

Kano says manners make a woman a more attractive person than physical features.

So what's with the massive boob-job then? No manners at all? Not much else to offer? Think you would have gotten you where you are today if you didn't modify your appearance? Her comment might be valid in some cases but it's empty and ironic coming from her. She knows where she can thank for the proceeds from this book and her other successes in life.

Very funny, bad girl's writing a book about "manners", something that they never used, their brain are in the boobs after all...

I'm sure she means to have nice manners to very rich guys who would lavish her with many fine and opulent items, not the everyday guys who they probably would have nothing to do with.

This book is probably an empty air head read. Don't get me wrong, I all ways say strike while the irons are hot, and I guess she got all she could from her "boobies." But as I have all ways said, every year there are newer and younger women who come on the scene, and these women get older. Once they realize that they are no longer "it" no matter how much plastic surgery they do they will never be young again. So as the world passes them by, they begin to realize that they actually have nothing but emptiness inside. It happens for men too.

My suggestion, just be nice rather you are rich or poor, pretty or ugly. You will feel better in the long run.

I think that is part of the message behind the book. Physical looks are only good for grabbing initial attention and opening the dooor. Looks don't last for most women, but what does is the quality of the individual: manners, behavior, soul, etc. Men have less and less tolerance for bitchy, rotten, adolescent behavior the older a woman gets (and I have zero tolerance for it regardless how young or attractive a woman is), but a woman who is "good" is appreciated at any age and regardless of looks. Those women age gracefully and its something nice to watch happen.

Brilliant. The best comment so far. I laughed out loud attracting attention from other people in the house: what's up? Oh, nothing, just about perks some people are getting.

Oh, forgot to mention that most Japanese women have excellent proportions - at a certain age, of course - and personally I think the Kano babes are kind of top heavy. In other words, they now are endowed with an overdose of female features. They know it and that's why the book.

Well then, I guess in Mika's world being a high-class call girl (escort girl or call it whatever you like) it must be very important to have good manners rather than nice boobs. When you have made a large amount of money from 'escorting' politicians and captains of industry, then it is very easy to come out with this sort of nonsense. And by the way, the next time you see a very expensive Mercedes parked outside the front of Shinjuku Isetan in their private chauffeur parking spot because the owner is being taken around with a private assistant, then you know it is just Mika showing some good manners...

To be honest, I'd rather see some boobies than get a polite "thank you". Still, A "thank you for looking at my boobies" would be even better.

There is nothing remotely attractive about Mika Kano's manners or physical appearance. I will never understand why some women try to emulate the Kano sisters. Who wants to look like an old call-girl has-been with too much plastic surgery? Most Japanese women of their generation have aged better than them, in a much more natural way.

hahaha she was probably alright to start out with, it's only since she discovered the surgeon's knife that she deserves the "fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down/ face was on fire and put out with a shovel/has a face like a bulldog licking piss off a broken bottle" type remarks what i mean to say is game on, she's a dozy bint and deserves a slagging from men and women alike

Does that work as well for guys two? I mean, I'm poor and ugly, and pretty stupid, I'll be the first to admit, but if I develop sufficiently patrician manners, will these two beautifully mannered boobalicious hunny bunnies submit to a pro bono three way?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The Kano sisters strike again! Does anyone find these two refugees from a discarded episode of "Nip and Tuck" remotely attractive? I squirm everytime I see them on TV. What on earth do the Japanese people find fascinating about these two ugly women? Japanese men probably go insane over their false boobs - loads of botox or whatever they used, there. Not mkuch between the ears, though.

I think what they were saying is that having big boobs alone sometimes doesn't cut it, you need big boobs plus manners. That will set you apart from the other large chested women.

Let me get this straight, she writes an essay on manners being more attractive than boobs. However, she has had a boob job to look more attractive. I don't get it. For the love of money, the book will sell.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The impression I get is that it is just another chance for them to make money, trying to get as many fingers into as many pies as possible. They've done books, book signings, sponsoring, dressing up to the nines and then appearing on some tacky variety karaoke show, cartoons even. Let's not get into the money they probably made from all the interviews about the time some of their jewellry was stolen either.

After years of playing the "let's play beautiful" gig, they want to turn themselves into well-mannered and respected icons of Japanese society? There are so many of these lame books out. If people don't have it in them already to have good manners, a book like this from people like ain't gonna help.

I actually think that quite a lot of Japanese women have wonderful proportions nowadays. Whether you like them tall, small, thin, full figured, Japan nowadays has a lot to offer. And that is in a natural way, and without the surgeon's assistance.

On this topic of what did Kyoko look like before all the surgery, no idea. In general though, those who pursue the perfection of beauty via the surgeon's assistance are in pursuit of the impossible. Perfection is a non-existing concept, as it is the slight imperfection which I tend to find characterizes the true beauty. I mean growing up Michelle Pfeiffer was someone I thought was seriously hot and she is apparantly "far from perfect" in terms of facial balance etc (though by my efinition that is perfectly fine for me).

Look at Michael Jackson, along with the Kano sioster, a classic case where the surgeon's work takes them closer to looking like something far from perfect as they choose to look something closer to what they think is perfection.

In a nutshell, beauty is within the eye of the beholder. That may be the message the book aims to pass on but I think he authors may not be the right messenger to deliver such a message.

I like Superlib's comment: "I think what they were saying is that having big boobs alone sometimes doesn't cut it, you need big boobs plus manners. That will set you apart from the other large chested women."

He, he...

I am happy that fake boobs are not so "in" in Japan (yet?). Every time I see posters of "Spark!" or "That's!" or "Trash!" or whatever it is magazine covers in the trains I look at the usually NATURAL boobs and think GOOD! It's good to have men lusting after NATURAL boobs, not the kind most bikini-clad (or not clad) models wear in those mags in my country! I often wonder how inadequate men would feel if they were bombarded constantly from a young age with pictures of men with surgically enhanced penises 4 times the average size...??

I LIKE Japan for not having YET turned over to the "plastic side" : )

Are you serious LionRatty? Do you watch much Japanese tv?

You should compare some women like Seiko Matsuda, BoA, Kimura Yoshino in their younger years and now, they just look so very, very different. Getting eye work and/or teeth work done, extremely common in Japan.

Mika won a Miss Japan (or similar) competition when she was younger. She isnt an unattractive woman.. just had too much work. But Kyoko is beginning to look scary. There is a 3rd 'sister' who they have nothing to do with now - she was suspected of stealing from Kyoko... Have you ever seen them on downtown deluxe? The clothes they wear are soooo expensive ( one of the shows corners is to show guests personal clothing ). They couldnt possibly afford all that on just a few book sales and DHC commercials... not to mention the foriegn bodyguards...

They remind me of that American woman who paid all kinds of money for plastic surgery to permanently look like Barbie. Anyone remember her name? I mean, boobs are nice, but the last time I checkd, you couldn't hold a conversation with them, let alone an intelligent one.
