Are Nanako Iwahashi And Odacchi From Love Is Blind Still Together?
Comedian Odacchi with his natural charm became hit in the Love Is Blind’s pods instantly. All the female casts loved him despite knowing if he was husband material or not. But, meeting Nanako who was previously divorced and who worked job to job, shared an instant connection because Odacchi shared a similar past.
Nanako shared that it was futile to try to teach kids when she don’t know much herself. That particular sentiment coming from the ballet dancer stuck with Odacchi who had plans of being a physics school teacher but quit for almost the same reason. But, they didn’t label their relationship a romantic one until the next day.
Nanako claimed that she got the heatstroke and his humor could be the only reason for that.
They discussed several topics from families to beliefs, pet peeves, future expectations which helped the comedian to have change of heart. In a very short time, he fell for the ballet dancer Nanako and started addressing her as his family/partner. He then promised to take good care of her all of which fortunately reciprocated. Then he proposed.
The pair were scared about setting eyes on each other for the first time. The looks never factored in the relationship because he found her very attractive and dubbed himself as a teddy bear the one that she needs in her life. They managed to keep the spark going as they worked to find a balance between their interests.
But are they together after the show?
The fact that both of them are on IG but don’t follow each other, it’s not a good look for their relationship. But, the connection which they formed in the show is something to be hopeful about.
