Some news and not-so-news that made the headlines. Collated from Sept 17 to 20, involved parties, are: Kis-My-Ft2, Kinki Kids, Yamapi, Nagatsuma Reo, and Yamada Ryosuke.
- Kis-My-Ft2 is having their “KIS-MY WORLD” concert tour 2015 and they have bested other Johnny’s groups when it comes to their flying stunts. In the group’s Tokyo Dome concert, the 7 member group flew as high as 25 meters, the highest so far in Johnny’s history. Tamamori Yuta likened it to a home run, only their’s is higher than the ball.
- KinKi Kids will having a winter concert this, well, winter. The duo will also be having their winter concert on Dec 31st and Jan 1st at Tokyo Dome. Okay, what will happen to Johnny’s countdown?
- Yamapi shared during the presscon of “5→9 ~watashi ni koishita ikemen sugiru obousan” with Ishihara Satomi that he already did the “takigyo” ritual. The cleansing ritual is a common practice in Shintoism where monks have to reflect under a waterfall. Yamapi jokes that the scene was pretty hard and wonders if his worldly desires were washed away as well. I wonder if he did takigyo wearing nothing but a fundoshi. haha.
- Speaking of “5→9 ~watashi ni koishita ikemen sugiru obousan“, Johnny’s Jr. Nagatsuma Reo will be joining Yamapi, Nagatsuma reportedly audition for his role and it was decided in 3 seconds. Okay, I have nothing against Nagatsuma but its hard to believe that he auditioned for the role and it wasn’t given to him.
- Some fans have something new to ship and that’s Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke and Suda Masaki. The two starred in “Ansatsu Kyoushitsu” and said that they have always wanted to worked together. Suda said that he has seen Yamada on TV since he was small so when he met him in person, it seemed unreal. While Yamada says that he have wanted to work with Suda whom he describes as “not a normal human being” for having that kind of acting talent in his early 20s. Oh, the shippers have also given these two a name and it’s “YamaSuda“. What can you say about this YamaChi? YutoYama?
That’s all for now, I’m leaving you with a gif on the incognito date of Sakurai Sho with Ishihara Satomi.
