"Trè bien. Tearing the shirt is a stunningly original statement! The effect is of a plant nestled on the Earth, melancholy but beautiful! This is the girl I've been waiting for!"
—Arthur impressed by Tsukushi during the contest[src]

Arthur Smith (アーサー・スミス () Āsā Sumisu) was a world-renowned designer. He participated in the Teen of Japan as a judge. A translator helped him during the contest, because he only spoke French.

Biography

A famous fashion designer, Arthur was asked to be judge in the Teen of Japan contest. In the first round, the girls were asked to show off their personality through fashion. Arthur was unimpressed with most of the contestants, calling them "too conventional." Upon seeing Tsukushi Makino, Arthur jumped up and declared "Tre bien." He then shouted "This is the girl I've been waiting for!" Arthur continued praising Tsukushi, but his translator stopped translating since the results had to be announced.[1]

Physical appearance

His hair was short on the left side and slightly longer on the right. He also had a thin mustache and two earrings in his left ear. Smith wore a simple shirt and blazer.

Arthur in the drama

  • He appears in the ninth episode of Hana Yori Dango (2005). Like in the manga, he excitedly shouts "Trè bien!" and "This is the look I've been searching for!", when he sees Tsukushi's outfit. She automatically passes to the next round due to his approval.[2]
  • Takarazuka Revue actress Mitsuki Haryu plays Arthur in the musical, Hana Yori Dango (2019). Haryu also plays two other characters.[3] Though he is still a foreigner, Arthur can speak Japanese and does not need an interpreter in this version.
