I'm back and I survived my parents' visit! I'll post photos from Tokyo and stuff later, but for right now, I'm just about ready to collapse, so I don't have the energy to write much. |D;; I probably missed something while I was away (I was checking LJ on my smartphone, but it wasn't exactly the most thorough way to stay up to date), so if I missed something I should be seeing or commenting on, please point me in the right direction!

BUT! I also wanted to drop in and comment on Shounen Club from this week! Talk about big changes!! Yeah yeah yeah, I know the MCs changed and Johnny's West became regular members, but what I'm talking about is the change in juniordom. First of all… Sexy Boyz were in B.I.Shadow's old costumes??? I nearly spit my drink across the room when I recognized them. Talk about craziness. It was a bit upsetting and more than a bit unreal, to be frank, because especially in that last number they did before the finale, their choreography and movement was EXACTLY like B.I.Shadow. I could almost see their little faces instead of Sexy Boyz's, and it was… pretty weird. But this pretty much makes it legit-- putting them in B.I.Shadow's old costumes is a clear indication that they're the next doomed 4-member group. Of course, it is a bit odd that Kishi has been absent so much, but I assume his various replacements are just replacements because he has school obligations or something. Though it doesn't really matter, because in my opinion, his position is doomed anyway. Jinguji and Genki are the clear Yabu/Hikaru or Fuma/Kento of this group.

And Reia! REIA!! He got featured in a talk section!!! For the first time since he was a baby in Snow Prince Gasshoudan?? He was clearly nervous, which was adorable, but totally unnecessary, because he's perfect in every way. ♥ He totally shone, and I'm glad he finally got a chance to be featured! (That whole section was priceless honestly; Kento and Shori's loveydoveyness, Jinguji's awkward crush on Shori continues, Genki is uncomfortable, etc XD) Also, I'm really hoping he gets called on for Jr. ni Q, because his card about his name said "Gender doesn't matter!" on it, ahaha. Though I'm really perplexed that Masuda Ryo gave up on "Shany" already. WHY DID YOU CHANGE NAMES FOR ONLY TWO MONTHS?

Other than that, I'm being annoyed by the J's Party 3 situation (Reia, Kishi, Amu, Gengen confirmed for attendance, tickets super cheap on resale, and I can't go because it's on a work night), excitedly waiting for Gamushara to start, contemplating how much I'm going to drop on Crea in resale, and trying not to stress over the start of the new school year! On the bright side, I finally have a glorious full weekend to sleep in and be productive in a not-work-related sort of way, so I'm looking forward to that!

Lol, I thought the same things about Masuda Ryo, like when he was in the medley and his name came up as "Masuda Ryo" and I was like, wait, weren't you "Shany" now? And then he came up in the Jr. ni Q and explained it. xD

The talk section lead by Shori and Kento was really cute! Especially how Kento kept calling Shori "Shori Teacher" ^^ But yeah, Reia and Genki are both super cute. ♥

Yeah, his name was released as Masuda Ryo with the Johnny's Livehouse Ginza @ Theatre Crea stuff, and I wasn't sure if the list was outdated or what, but then I saw this episode of Shounen Club XD

Yeah, that was adorable XD My kids sometimes do that, trying to translate "○○-sensei" as "○○-teacher" XD Kento and Shori were just the cutest there, the way they kept looking at one another and joking and giggling and stuff. ^o^ But yes, Reia and Genki ♥ They were really cute, and I'm glad they got a chance to shine.

It's always cute when they find new nicknames for each other or start calling them something different than what they usually do. I feel like my study of Japanese culture has made me more sensitive to differences in the names people call other people and what that means for their relationship. ^^ Like having to study it and pay attention to it to speak and understand Japanese has made me more sensitive to it. xD

おかえり! I have to skip your shokura comments because I can't watch until tomorrow morning. *impatient*

The only thing you missed from me was A.B.C-Z translation spam from when I was laid up... and a big life issue this week. But it may be nothing. We'll just wait and see...

ただいま!But aww, sorry for the spoilers!

I'm sorry I missed it D: Would you prefer I go back and comment on those entries or wait for you to post new ones? I hope your knee is feeling a little better, at least?

Don't feel obligated.. you just asked what you missed… and I hate when nobody tells me… I don't know anything yet.

I want to watch this week's episode again XD That talk section was seriously the best. And the game was pretty amusing too |D (I think you typo'd Reia for Genki in the Sexy Boyz part, though XD)

And yay for free weekend~
ミランダ (大丈夫): Reia: cutefaded_lace on April 4th, 2014 11:40 pm (UTC)
Well, there's always the download? XD; But yeah, that talk was just… what I've been waiting for ;___; (Oops… wishful thinking? |D)

Yay :D

I knew those costumes looked familiar I just couldn't figure out why. alfjke WELCOME BACK GLAD YOU HAD A NICE TIME.

Sobs. I just watched Shokura today and had a complete breakdown over Genki... which has become normal for me apparently.

ミランダ (大丈夫): Reia: love me?faded_lace on April 4th, 2014 11:34 pm (UTC)
They're the B.I.Shadow costumes. ;_____; It seriously brought tears to my eyes to see them again. I'm just. I don't know how I feel about them reusing those costumes. They're sacred to me, okay. >__>;

Well, he was adorable. It's okay, I was screaming over Reia the whole time. My neighbors probably think I was being murdered or something.

I did have a nice time though! Thanks! ♥ I feel loved~
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 4th, 2014 11:39 pm (UTC)
DD: I understand that, but it's JE they reuse costumes all the time so it was bound to happen even if we don't want it to.. /pets gently/ there there.

Genki is just ruining me and there's nothing I can do about it. Reia was so cute too though! And he was so smiley! it was adorable idek what to do with that child other than. 'reiaaaaaa you cutie'

:DD Good! Feel loved.

Welcome hoooooome I am behind on shokura (as per usual) but I will try and catch up so I can watch this apparently awesome-and-heart-wrenching-episode! But seriously, it is for sure seeming like Sexy Boyz are the next BI Shadow, ya-ya-ya, etc.... poor babies. That road only leads to heartbreak... ;~;

Also lol, Masuda Ryo, I barely know who you are but your decision making skills, what |D;;
ミランダ (大丈夫): Genki: warmfaded_lace on April 5th, 2014 09:30 am (UTC)
I know, but at the same time, it's good to know that the world is in proper order? I mean, I'd be more worried if there wasn't a 4-member group. But those costumes… they're sacred, okay. Seriously not okay, man.

Lol yeah idek. XDD
