Hola! I still can’t get over the fact that there will be a “HERO 2” as if they haven’t learned from reviving Kimura and Shibasaki’s loveteam, now they have to revived one of KimuTaku’s classic and a new heroine to boot. I have nothing against Kitagawa but really, this is a bad idea.
So as I have start ranting, here is more ranting and raving for this week’s Rants & Raves…
- Johnny’s WEST sells more than 100,00 single sales on their first day
Rave: Good for them! It was a long road toward their debut so at least all their hard work is paying-off. It’s likely that they will top the first week.
Rant: …just the first week since it’s impossible they will continue for the second week with Arashi releasing “GUTS!” on the 30th. Though,it’s quite amazing that they managed to sell more than some of their senpais. *cough*
- KAT-TUN’s Junnosuke Taguchi plays Forrest Gump in new stage play
Rave: Now that is a very good-looking Forrest Gump.
Rant: Tom Hanks is Forrest Gump. Period. Junno should have stick with dancing like in NO WORDS NO TIME.
- Katori Shingo plays Danny Ocean in Oceans 11 Stage Play
Rant: Now, what with Johnny’s being the Japanese counterpart of famous American movie characters? Moreover, a musical? Robbers doing singing and dancing isn’t my cup of tea.
Rave: This play also features 3 of Shingo’s kouhai, namely: Sanada Yuma, Yasui Kentaro and Hagiya Keigo. Lucky guys to be included in such a huge musical.
Rant: Assuming that I look forward to a Japanese adaptation of Oceans 11, but why set it as a stage play? The stage seems too small to recreate the Sin City.
- Yamapi kisses a stranger in Otona no KISS Eigo
Rave: win-win for both, I guess. Besides the kissing thing, Yamapi speaks English surprisingly well, it doesn’t sound Engrish at all! All those English lessons sure is paying-off! Happy!
