Roland’s plan turns his fans’ knees to jelly, but some say it’s a selfish waste of money.
Recently, we introduced you to Roland, the currently reigning king of Japan’s bar hosts. Between his fashionable looks and suave demeanor, Roland has earned a reputation as the most desirable drinking partner for women visiting the host bars of Tokyo’s Kabukicho district, where he plies his trade.
As a matter of fact, Roland is so secure in his position atop the hot hierarchy that he’s even willing to give advice to other men on how to be popular with the ladies.

Through his official Twitter account, Roland recently shared a question he’d been asked via social media.
“I’m in junior high, and one day I hope to be a host like you, the great Roland. If you have any advice for how even a junior high school student can have a romantic date, please tell me.”

“If a guy did this for me, I’d fall for him right away.”
“So romantic. Such wonderful advice♡”
“My dear Roland! Your last sentence moved me to tears. You are so kind.”
However, there were also a few detractors, including more than one person who claimed Roland stole this idea from Japanese boy band Da Pump’s lead vocalist Issa. Other criticisms included:
“By buying two more tickets than you need, you’re making it so that two fewer people can watch the movie. That’s not romantic at all. It’s just being inconsiderate and wasting money.”
“What about the seats in front of and behind you? Do you have to but those too?”
“Don’t get cheap. Take her to one of those fancy movie theaters with private box seats.”
“Once you start buying two extra movie tickets, you’ll have to
