Bits & Pieces 37

I do feel very guilty about not writing or posting anything the past month. And with that being said, I also believe that I should be doing more Bits & Pieces since I won’t need to think much about the format of the post.

Bits & Pieces 36

Hello~ I have regrouped a lot of articles that was kinda left out in my list of articles to translate just to get them off the list, so they are a little bit out of date…?  I hope you don’t mind but I’m updating the list with recent ones. So this might feel a little bit half-assed, but I needed a bit of time sorting out what to translate and what to skip. I still have a hard time figuring it out…

Without further ado, there’s the 36th Edition of Bits & Pieces. Involved parties are: Ikuta Toma, NEWS‘s Tegoshi Yuya & Masuda Takahisa, Arashi‘s Aiba Masaki, KAT-TUN‘s Nakamaru Yuichi, Kis-My-Ft2‘s Miyata Toshiya.

Tamamori Yuta and Nakayama Yuma, Double Leads in DREAM BOYS

Why have one when you can have two?

Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta have been taking the lead in the stage play, “DREAM BOYS“, which he succeeded from his senpais, KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya and Tackey & Tsubasa’s Takizawa Hideaki. For the past two years, Tamamori is also sharing the stage with his fellow Kisumai members, Senga Kento and Miyata Toshiya. For this year DREAM BOYS will have two version, one stars Tamamori while the other stars Nakayama Yuma.

Tamamori and Nakayama have starred together in the drama, “Pin to Kona“, so this is like a reunion. However, they won’t be sharing the stage together since they will be performing separately. Tamamori will still co-star with Senga and Miyata while Nakayama will be with Sexy Zone‘s Kikuchi Fuma and Marius Yo.

There have been circulating rumors why there will be two versions of DREAM BOYS this year, one is that Kis-My-Ft2 will be extremely busy this September since they’ll be having a tour. The second one is that this move is like Tamamori passing on the torch to Nakayama.

Well, Nakayama have been active in stage plays particularly with PLAYZONE so I guess that DREAM BOYS will be easy for him. As for “passing on the torch”, I guess this will be a trial run for Nakayama seeing how the performance dates for Yuma’s version is shorter compared to Tamamori.

DREAM BOYS Tamamori version will run starting Sept 3-10, 15-16,and 22-30. While DREAM BOYS Nakayama version will run starting Sept 12-14 and 18-20.
