Marikit ♥ Notti
I love Notti for the simple fact that he is fun, energetic and always smiling. He is very sweet looking and always moving around. Kusano looks like he could not hurt a fly, at the same time he has this mischievous look to him that I adore. He is so cute, he has a handsome face and a nice energetic and bright personality. He is truly one NEWS member that I always watch.
Notti can dance really well, speak english well, rap, and sing very well. He is one of JE's most loved voices and sweetest guys. In my honest opinion, this guy's talents does not stop there. He is a great artist, a very good friend and i bet that doesnt even end there.
When he voluntarily left NEWS for a while, he sacrificed himself and his career. But, he worked hard to come back and now he is back. I hope we see a great many of Kusano in the future because Notti is awesome.
