The thing about the mensrush website is, it’s not very well organized. They don’t always use the same descriptors for the same people, and sometimes they reuse descriptors for different people, so even though you can search for keywords, it might not return all the videos that person has appeared in, or it might return some irrelevant results. And unless you already have a sense of when certain videos were released and about how long it takes them to release new videos, it’s not really possible to tell just by looking at the site exactly when any given video was filmed.
When you go to the page that lists takumi’s film’s you’ll notice that most of them are very early (like super early) in the MR serial number sequences. From what I can gather, he was one of the first featured models for Mensrush. And that would have been back in 2006-2007. MR-KR606 was filmed sometime in 2012. He’s appeared in a few other videos as a top in this more recent era, and they’re not calling him Takumi anymore, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s not the same guy.
People can change a lot in 5 years. Takumi was a long and lean looking bottom. He’s bulked up a little bit now and taken on the role of an anonymous Top, and he’s also dyed his hair sort of an orangey brown and wears it shorted than he used to.
But take a look at the very first sentence of MR-KR606’s video description:
"Otokoppoi tanpatsu ikemen ni seichoushita johnny-kei kawaii shounen"
"The johnny’s-type cute boy has grown into a Manly short-haired hansome guy."
That’s the thing about Japanese. It doesn’t always communicate things point blank, outright, to be plainly understood. There’s a lot you have to infer, contextual things that are communicated, different layers of understanding to be reached depending on how closely you’re paying attention. And in the context of the mensrush website and body of work, that one little sentence communicated to me: “you’re not going crazy, you’ve seen this dude before, though it’s been a while. I bet you’re wondering, huh? He was a popular bottom back in the day, but he’s gotten a little thicker and more dominant since you last saw him. We’re not gonna tell you his name, but we know you can figure it out with the hints we gave you~ meanwhile enjoy the video~”
I could reblog this a thousand times…
cool, here’s the original post so you can reblog it from there instead.
