EXILE appeared as guests on an episode of 'Ocha no Mizu Hakase' that aired on 20th April. When talk came round to having girls screaming out for them at concerts, Takahiro recalled an incident.
He said that one time, he was singing and walking along the runway, looking at the faces in the crowd when he noticed a really cute girl that pretty much bowled him over. She seemed so pure, he said. She looked a little embarrassed though and she didn't go 'kyaa' or anything but just looked at him intently. He described her as having a Horikita Maki vibe.
During a break, he told Hiro that there was a really cute girl and he should scout her. Hiro chipped in that this was the first time that Takahiro had ever said that. Takahiro then said that it'd be better to get a staff member to chase her down quick.
After the concert ended, the staff came back and told him that she was the real thing, Maki herself! He said now that he thinks back about it, he feels so embarrassed.
