Bits & Pieces 017

Its the middle of summer and before I melt from this intense summer heat, here are some news and not-so-news that I’m too lazy to translate fully. Involved parties, are: Nakayama Yuma, Yamada Ryosuke, Tamamori Yuta, Katori Shingo, and Matsumoto Jun.

  • There’s life after NYC and aside from promoting his single, “YOLO Moment”, Nakayama Yuma is off to his solo tour this May. The said tour will happened in three cities with six performances.

  • Speaking of NYC, former NYC and still Hey!Say!JUMP‘s center, Yamada Ryosuke, is starring in the movie “Ansatsu Kyoshitsu“. The said movie have mobilized 2 million audiences and a movie reviewer have good words for Yamada’s first movie. The writer described him as “petite” and “coupled with woman features”, and also mentioned that Yamada shows no discomfort in playing a high school student even though he’s already an adult. Come to think of it, is the writer being sarcastic? haha. Well, high school student rank as no.1 among Johnny’s most popular role according to my survey. XD
  • It was announced that there will be a live-action Death Note TV drama. Even though the movie had been well received, plans for the drama has been criticized for being placed in a late-night timeslot and the chance that someone from EXILE or Johnny’s will play the main roles, which is like scarier than the Shinigami.


  • As reported earlier, Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta will have his silver screen debut opposite of Nishiuchi Mariya in “Raintree no Kuni“. The movie will hit the theaters on Nov 21st and for his first movie, Tamamori underwent some speech training since his character is a Kansai native. Uhm, he can always ask Kanjani8 for help.
  • The gorgeous cast for “Galaxy Kaidou” starring SMAP‘s Katori Shingo and Ayase Haruka had been revealed. Aside from the two stars playing an alien couple, Oguri Shun, Endo Kenichi, Akimoto Sayaka, Nishida Toshiyuki, Yuka, Yamamoto Koji and more will join them in Galaxy in this Mitani Koki movie.

  • Speaking of gorgeous, Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun is back gooing babies and showing to us that he is a father material in his new CM for Goo. Check it out, here.

That’s all for now, stay hydrated and cool like Riida.

  1. I approve the pic you chose for yamachan *nosebleeds*. By the way there was a little hubbub over him being spotted with his parents recently (sure not sure). I don’t think you write about anything that has no ‘official’ news but would love it if you could do a bit of detective work and write an article about Johnnies and their families (general info already known by the japanese public?). I suck at research big time. Do let me know if I’ve crossed the line in asking for something you’re not comfortable with OTL Really sorry if I did.


    • I JUST READ THE WEBSITE DESCRIPTION. Talk about crossing boundaries already laid out (_ _). Ignore all my above-mentioned requests! Sorry! But I still approve of that photo you chose! *continues to nosebleed*


    • Hi aishah! I don’t mind translating an article about it, if there is one. Other than that, I really don’t have the time to do research so I’m just focusing on current events. XD
