HOWEVER. In not me-being-sick news, did everyone see THIS?!? Trololo Johnny's! Y u gotta b dat way?? Just in case this is necessary, a translation of what's written there:
Johnny's West's debut is set for this spring!
These seven, Kiriyama AKito, Nakama Junta, Shigeoka Daiki, Kotaki Nozomu, Fujii Ryusei, Hamada Takahiro, and Kamiyama Tomohiro
Their CD release under the Johnny's Entertainment label has been set for the spring of 2014. As soon as more details are decided, they'll be announced. Please anticipate their activities from now on!
So there you have it. Johnny's West (originally Johnny's West 4) will be SEVEN members, including all of the originally 7West and the BAD+Hama-chan group. What does this mean? Well, to me:
☆ Faith in Johnny's restored. Johnny's isn't supposed to break up Junior groups for non-volleyball debuts, and they're never supposed to debut groups of four (in my study of the Johnny's "common era" if you will, being from Arashi to now... my rules don't extend back into senpai groups and stuff).
☆ I feel better for the guys, since I was sure the three who were originally supposed to be shafted must have been really sad about it.
☆ My unwavering doubt that Johnny is and will always be an incredibly disorganized shitshow is strengthened lol.
All in all, as a non-Kansai fan, I'm happy with this announcement. Hopefully Kansai fans are too! For the record, my favourite Johnny's WEST member is Fujii. I like the ones who seem really airbrained. XD; Also, his sisters are hot~
