  1. Yeah, you did mention that part of them following the format of their senpais’ show. This basically begs the question: what’s the selling point if they’re just copying or following? It’s bad enough that it’s saturated with 16 Johnny’s members – although not all of them at the same time. Plus, Kansai region could sure use a fresher Johnny’s group besides KinKi Kids and Kanjani8.

    Let’s hope that it does bring something new or better yet, revolutionary, besides being a “junior edition” of their senpais’ TV show and all.


  2. I honestly don’t think that an alternating hosting duties dynamic will work for HSJ. There are 9 of them and there’s like 7 on the J-WEST side. That’s uber-ikemen saturation there. They could have balanced this by having regular female hosts with them. They did it with Bakaleya and subsequently with Bad Boys J – and they were both dramas with a huge cast – so it’s kinda ironic that Johnny’s management can’t do this for debuted groups and do so with their undebuted talents.
    Heck, Johnny’s WEST should get their own show or in the least start off by making appearances in a Kanjani8 show and maybe later graduate to sharing a TV show with their senpai or, better yet, have a TV show of their own.

    • I think they didn’t put a female co-host because they are trying to follow the format of Tokyo Live 22Hr. In that case, they just need to interact more with their equally interactive audience, which I think would be mostly female population.
