It was a stressful and frustrating week, it had been sad and tiring but quite fulfilling (on the work side). Oh well, enough of my personal drama, while I was busy with my solving problems, here are some news and not so news that I missed. Involved parties, are: Kanjani8, Arashi, Jin Akanishi, Yamapi, Tamamori Yuta, Ikuta Toma, and Yamada Ryosuke.
- The end of August is like the announcements for albums and what follows an album is definitely a TOUR. Kanjani8 announces that they’ll be having a 5-Dome tour aside from a new album titled: “Kanjani8 no genki ga deru CD!!“.
- Speaking of new album, Arashi will also be releasing an album called “Japonism“. The title sounds cool and I hope that the songs will be cooler. Arashi is scheduled for a local version of their “BLAST in HAWAII”, which is “BLAST in MIYAGI“. The said 4 day concert will also double as a charity work to help the Miyagi prefecture’s economy. The prefecture are among those that were greatly affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. Since most of the fans will be traveling far, JR East line announced that they’ll be having extra trains for Arashi’s 4-day concert. The said train will travel from Sendai-Rifu station to Tokyo station.
- In the land of former Johnny’s, the notorious Jin Akanishi announced that he will be starting his own fashion line. You can check-out his jinstagram for a sneak peek of his upcoming designs and I can now picture Kikuchi Fuma making reservations.
- Let’s move on to one of Jin’s BFF, Yamapi, who is back as Tsuneo in an all-new Doraemon‘s Toyota CM with a new character. Check-out the newest CM here.
- After you checked-out Yamapi’s lateset Toyota CM, do check-out Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta‘s upcoming movie “Raintree no kuni” with the gorgeous Nishiuchi Mariya HERE. The trailer captivates the chemistry between the two, which is warm and fuzzy, but I’m still shipping Tamamori to Shiida Mirai.
- Another trailer worth checking-out is “Grasshopper” movie starring Ikuta Toma and Yamada Ryosuke. I haven’t checked the movie’s website for a long time so I’m not so sure whether the trailer is the newest. Anyway, the new trailer featured actress Haru as Ikuta’s love interest and the subject of his revenge. Check-out the badass trailer, HERE.
That’s all for now, enjoy your weekend and Happy 32nd Birthday MatsuJun.
