In receiving the award, Itano told the audience "Although I wear glasses when I am at home, I usually wear contact lenses when I am out.  However, to be placed in the 'Megane Senbatsu' makes me very happy!"

She went on to share her views on men who wear glasses, saying "The moment he puts on glasses when he normally doesn't wear them, or vice versa, I think this gap is very cool, very charming."

Miyazawa, who normally does not need glasses, said "I am personally overjoyed to to received this award!  Ever since middle school, even though my eyesight is fine, I have insisted my eyes were bad just so that I could wear glasses."
