Home sick from work again, but I definitely think I'm on the mend. My boss wanted me to go to the hospital again today and get a check for the flu, but by some stroke of luck, my doctor's office is closed today, so I don't have to go through that whole ordeal again. However, they're still insistent that I go to the doctor before I go back to work, but I really need to go to elementary school tomorrow and I have a class scheduled for first period. I'm going to try calling later and convincing them that I'm healthy enough that there's no way it could be the flu, since I'm getting better and I really doubt that if I had the flu my temperature would have gone all the way down to 37.3º with no drugs when I woke up this morning.

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~

Ugh, siblings!!! They are the best!!!!

I know! I want to see more of Saya, though. It's sad that she isn't usually in Johnny's stuff.
rorychanrorychan on February 6th, 2014 09:13 am (UTC)
I know she has been in a few of them. I remember squealing when I saw her. But you could cout the times she's been in them on like 2 or 3 fingers. D: Have you seen her on the Grocket fancams??? XD Omg, I love her.
ミランダ (大丈夫): Chinen: captivatedfaded_lace on February 7th, 2014 07:18 am (UTC)
Oh really? Her G-rockets profile page doesn't list any, and I don't watch that many Johnny's stageplays, so I just assumed she hadn't been! Do you know what shows she was in? I'd like to hunt down those files so I can see her in action! I've only watched her in that one NMB48 PV haha.

I haven't seen any fancams either! Oh man XD I really want to see her.

I spotted her in one of Tackey's shows...Unfortunately, I only saw her once. :( She doesn't seem to get big parts in those productions...But she gets really good spots in their lives. They should release their own DVD's. XD

Darn XD I want to see her perform!
rorychanrorychan on February 9th, 2014 11:52 pm (UTC)
I wish she got more spotlight in DVDs
ミランダ (大丈夫): Chinen: musingfaded_lace on February 10th, 2014 04:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, I guess the dancers never really do though XD;

Oh Johnny's XD;; I guess maybe they hadn't made up their minds yet but let them announce it at Countdown anyway, or something |D I'm glad they did this, though... breaking up 7West for a non-volleyball debut was just not okay. (Also they clearly should have left the name as 7West...way catchier and actually the right number of people trololo)

And I hope you feel better! ♥
ミランダ (大丈夫): Jinchan: srsly?faded_lace on February 6th, 2014 07:08 am (UTC)
Yeah, who even knows. It seems like it would have been a lot less traumatic if they just waited, but there you go. Ahahaha @ 7West though. They really should have.

Thank you ♥

I'm glad you're feeling a little better, at least! Hope everything goes ok tomorrow.

Oh, Johnny's....

Well |D Overall I'd say its an improvment? I'm glad 7West isn't getting split up. Who are Fujii's sisters?
ミランダ (大丈夫): Chinen: musingfaded_lace on February 6th, 2014 07:07 am (UTC)
Thanks. >__<

And yeah, it feels a lot better this way. Even if I'm not interested, it's better this way, I think.

Fujii's sisters are in E-girls (and they're each in a separate subgroup but I forget which.)

When the first hints came out that they might add members to Johnny's WEST, I kept doubting it, thinking that even Johnny's can't be that disorganized that they'd just announce a debut and then add members afterwards, but boy was I wrong. xD

But apparently they went to Johnny directly to ask him to let them debut as seven, so yay group bonds and talents actually having bargaining and decision-making power. But from the stories Johnny's WEST are telling, the reason they're debuting at all is apparently because Kansai Jrs. were asking to debut and Johnny was like "Okay" so... xD

I also felt that way when I first head it. XD; I thought it was just rumours, and then when I read about that radio show on your journal, I was really surprised. XD;; But it's nice that they have those group bonds. ^^; Johnny's really is a disorganized mess, though. XD;;
