I missed doing Rants & Raves last Tuesday because I have fever and I can be a b*tch during those situations that I might say something inappropriate.
The news and the not-really-newsworthy have piled-up in just two days so here is this week’s Rants & Raves…
[not for hardcore fans and those with no sense of humor]
- Jacket covers for Arashi’s “GUTS!” and Sexy Zone’s “King & Queen & Joker” are out
Rants: Here we go again with Johnny’s generic covers. I know that “GUTS!” is Nino’s drama theme song for “Yowakutemo Katemasu” but do they have to make it so obvious that they dressed-up like a cross between teachers and baseball coaches? And blue background? Hello high school YEARBOOK!
Raves: The photos look too good for a high school yearbook, or maybe because I have bad memories with my high school photo. XD. Nevertheless, at least some Arashics/Arashians have sense of humor.
Rants: What about the Sato-centered Sexy Zone? It looks the typical studio pic most teens do back when there’s no digital cameras and smartphones. Something like this…
Raves: You nailed the chair…but the cover is much better than their previous covers where their faces seemed like it was grouped together and have it photoshop.
Rant: BTW, “King & Queen & Joker”? It’s like Nakajima, Sato, and Kikuchi very own titles while the other two are lackeys.
- SMAP’s Inagaki Goro new CM will have him play 5 roles, one of which is a blond flight attendant where he commented that he looks like a transvestite.
Rants: I’ve long accepted the fact cross-dressing is like a stupid rite of passage of every existing Asian Idol but I draw the line when someone in Inagaki’s age still does it.
Rave: Or Inagaki is just that confident in his sexuality to still play that kind of role. Shingo does it well…
- Shinigami-kun drama production warned against a FAKE Shinigami-kun twitter account
Rant: Johnny’s very own “Death Note”- twitter style. I wonder who will get the first 140 characters death prediction?
Rave: Some people have lots of free time to waste.
- Shingo Katori’s “SMOKING GUN” premiered with 10.3%
Rave: Pretty average. Good start.
Rant: What is the average these days? The average seem pretty low to me.
Rave: Other dramas this Spring premiered at lower ratings.
Rant: Then it’s our standards that have gotten lower.
- KAT-TUN will sing the theme song for Nakamaru Yuichi’s drama “FIRST CLASS”, the song is titled “FACT”
Rant: I know what you’re thinking but don’t expect anything until an official announcement has been made. Tacky title, fact?
Rave: It’s been so long so I’m excited.
