A rundown of news and not-so-news that have gotten cold because I’m too busy and lazy to translate it. Involved parties, are: Johnny’s WEST, Hey!Say!JUMP, Arashi, Nakai Masahiro, and Yamapi.
- Kanjani8 shows their support to Johnny’s WEST for their first nationwide tour, “Johnny’s WEST 1st Tour Paripipo“. All the love for their fellow Kansai natives as Maruyama Ryuhei, Yasuda Shota, and Murakami Shingo went to Yokohama Arena to give Johnny’s WEST a boost. Since the guys have started their nationwide tour, they are getting more ambitious as they’re aiming for Hokkaido to be included in their next tour and that they also want their own “crown” program. Well, goodluck with that!
- Hey!Say!JUMP will not be only interacting with V6 this year for 24 Hr TV, they’ll be acting as student officers along Arashi‘s sensei for this year’s “Waku Waku Gakkou“. I wonder who will become the teacher’s pet? Teacher’s pet aside, expect this year’s WakuWaku to talk about transparent rice and bon odori among others.
- Condolence to SMAP‘s Nakai Masahiro who revealed in his radio show that his dad died last Feb 19th. He was 79 years old and his death also end his battle with lung cancer that was diagnosed 2 years ago and laryngeal cancer a year ago. Nakai also revealed that as the third son, his father calls him “Hiro-chan” and that he wanted to at home as much as possible; Nakai’s dad had home care and he also revealed that he rode the ambulance four times since December up to his father’s death in February. Since I know that majority of Johnny’s smokes, I hope that this will serve as a warning to them.
- There will be a new face in Yamapi‘s “Flowers for Algernon” and its Iitoyo Marie. Marie is a model and she will play Sakuto’s little sister. She will appear starting episode 6 onwards.
Well, that’s all for now and I just realized that it’s Mother’s Day so Happy Mother’s Day to all your mamas!
