being a juniors fan sucks okay.  
There's nothing like sitting at home knowing that Gamushara J's Party is going on while you're not there. :/ Naturally, they announced the next one, which is also on weekdays. I don't understand why they're doing this. I mean, it's one thing for TV filmings and stuff, but… this is a concert. And it's one thing to make it on weekdays occasionally, but… if I just have to resign myself to never going, just like Shounen Club… I don't know. It's really aggravating.

In other news, in addition to a wild, possibly fake twitter account for Kakuta Yusei appearing, rumour now has it that Kuramoto Kaoru has left Johnny's as well? I don't have a strong emotional investment either way (as long as it doesn't affect Reia), but I wish that it would all just become clear so I don't have to keep wondering.

At any rate, looks like I may have to change my prediction more than expected. I'm still planning on making another one in half a year, at the one-year mark. In case you're curious, you can check out my massive Johnny's volleyball group research post and most recent 2015 prediction and see what I'm thinking. ^^; I love discussion, so… if you want to discuss, feel free!

Whines what... ;_________; Yusei damn it are you still around or not. DON'T DO THIS TO ME.

:TTT I'm sad that you can't go see Gamashura because it's during the week. D:

As for the 2015 debut... I 100% percent believe Genki will be there... not too sure about anyone else though.. xD

Still unclear if it's real or not. Basically, we're going to have to wait until next month's magazines, Shounen Club, and shows to know for sure or not. It is seeming more and more like he's out, though, whether of his own choice or not.

Yeah, I'm really annoyed. It really kills me missing opportunities to see Juniors, of all things. Since usually there's not enough opportunities.

I wouldn't get too certain, since that only leads to getting hurt T___T At least that's what I discovered from B.I.Shadow >__< But yeah, we'll have to see.
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 12:14 am (UTC)
;__________; well now I'm going to go back to crying all the time. Yusei damn it. If you hear anything you'll let me know? I think you'd find out before I would anyway.

DD: And there's no way you can go to one of the shows at all?

....Yeah I should probably keep calm about it since we won't find out for few more looooong months anyway. :TTT

Also this is unrelated but I got two new rats today! A solid white one, and a white one with light brown on her head
ミランダ (大丈夫): Shintaro: cutefaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 12:23 am (UTC)
I'll let you know, but if the twitter is real, then he's definitely left. Chances are, we won't hear anything definite either way, and he'll either just be there or… not.

Nope. There's two shows on a Tuesday and a Wednesday at 6. I get out of work at 4:05 and it takes two hours by train to get to Tokyo, plus getting to Roppongi when I get there, plus whenever the train leaves from my station. There's literally no way I could make it. It's really aggravating.

We actually won't find out for more than a year. It will be 17 months away from next week.

Nice :D I saw the pictures but I've been busy at work so I didn't comment. ^^
ルナーたん : Why do you make me cryluna_truths on April 17th, 2014 12:26 am (UTC)
Ugh. I realize that not a whole bunch of people actually knew this kid but I did and this is breaking my heart. At least if he has a twitter then I can still keep up with him and see little glimpses of his life just like I do with Wakiyama. Mind you I have no idea what they say but still..

DDDD: That really sucks. I'm so sorry.

Ffff. That's too far away damn it. I want to know now.

ミランダ (大丈夫): Nikaido: contemplativefaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 12:31 am (UTC)
I'm sorry. I didn't really know him, but I can understand the feeling. I'll tell you if I get any concrete information.

It's okay >__< It's just really frustrating that they're only doing them on weekdays now.

I know, right.
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 12:42 am (UTC)
;_; It's okay, and yes please!

But most of the juniors are still in school so why do them on the weekdays? It doesn't make sense because wouldn't most of them be missing out on classes or something?

I just am so curious about who will be in it and how many people will be there. >_> I'm impatient and I wanna know
ミランダ (大丈夫): Hokuto: osharefaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 12:56 am (UTC)
Now it's looking like the twitter account was fake, so I don't know. Chances are, we'll never get a concrete answer and we'll just have to wait and see, but I'll let you know.

I mean, school lets out sometime between 3:30 and 4, so they can get to the venue in time, because they don't like 2 prefectures away. But yeah, it really limits who can go in terms of fans, so it's really aggravating.

Yeah, you and me both XD
ルナーたん : genkiluna_truths on April 17th, 2014 09:01 am (UTC)
;TTTT Well. I guess if there won't be a report or anything to prove why he left, then I'll just have to sit and wait and pray that he's in next months Shokura.

I really don't understand that, they know that a majority of jr fans are still like... high school kids themselves? Weird agency..

Sobs. Waiting is the hardest part tbh
ミランダ (大丈夫): Fuma: hmmfaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 09:22 am (UTC)
Nope… we just have to hope. Magazines and Shokura are done so far in advance though that it might not even be until the next month…

Actually, the majority of concert demographics is people who disposable incomes, which isn't high school students. Not to say that kids don't go to the concerts, but most people are usually around my age or a little older. But still, if you work from 9-5, getting to the theatre before 6 is probably rough, so. I don't get it.

I knoooow @__@;
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 09:28 am (UTC)
Well... I thought they filmed two eps of Shokura in one month though? I don't know I forget how these things work like 90% of the time. I just nee an answer on Yusei's status before I lose my mind over the possibility of him not being there anymore.

Oh really? Well still that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Though I did think that most jr fans were young kids, xD but that doesn't say a whole lot because I'm a jr fan and I'm almost 24 so...

u_____________________u This waiting business is rough
ミランダ (大丈夫): Genki: warmfaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 09:44 am (UTC)
Shokura comes on every week, but only the first two weeks of the month are regular Shokura. The third week of the month is "Shokura Premium" and the fourth is "Selection Special." The film the first and second weeks about a month in advance of the second episode (three weeks in advance of the first) or so. But there's really no way to know for sure… :( For all we know, he's taking a hiatus (which Juniors have been known to do) and will reappear in a year…

Concerts don't really give a clear example of the demographic, though. Think about it… when you were 15, did you have 300 dollars to drop on a concert ticket? Concerts are always highly dominated by older fans because they're the ones who can afford it. There could be 99% fans under 16, but those fans just almost always have no way of attending, and thus have no way of being represented.

Yes T____T
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 07:52 pm (UTC)
Huh. I never knew that. o: I learn something new everyday. Well... I guess I'll just have to wait and see. u_u Stupid waiting.

Man. When I was 15 I don't think I had money ever. But that does make more sense, hm... It still sucks that you can't go though. DDD:
ミランダ (大丈夫): Kishi: (o u o)faded_lace on April 17th, 2014 07:58 pm (UTC)
Glad to help XD Yeah, it's a shame that Shounen Club Premium never gets uploaded, not because it was really ever interesting (it used to be Taichi as the host, but now it's KAT-TUN starting this week, and they changed the style completely, so maybe it will change) but sometimes amusing/hilarious things would happen. Like Taichi being like "So I see you didn't do anything in 2010" to Tackey and Tsubasa and being met with incredulous, really awkward stares from both Tackey and Tsubasa. XD;

Yeah, exactly XD;; Sometimes their moms will bring them, or pay for them, but the population of concerts is really skewed towards the 20+ crowd. I get the feeling that the majority of people at Junior concerts are between 20 and 40, with maybe 15% in the 40+ bracket and only 5% in the under 20 bracket. But yeah >__< No matter who it is, unless you don't work, don't have school, and live close to Roppongi, you can't go easily.
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 08:59 pm (UTC)
Oh my god that sounds fantastic. xD Yeah I'd say with Kat-tun hosting now that it will probably be uploaded somwehre, KT fans are on top of their shit when it comes to those boys. Makes me envious when I struggle to find things with my favorites. xD (Also because I'll be busy the next two days Happy Easter)

Man. I'd totally take my kid(s) to see Sexy zone and whatever group Genki and Reia are in.. xD "LOOK THAT'S MOMMY'S FAVORITE, AND THAT ONE AND THAT ONE TOO."
ミランダ (大丈夫): Chinen: musingfaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 11:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's also definitely aimed at a younger audience now. Taichi's wasn't interesting like, at all. It seemed like it was mostly aimed at 35+ fans who were fans back in the day and the youngest people who were ever mentioned were Arashi and very very occasionally NEWS It was mostly focused on Heikeha's age range. KAT-TUN's at least focused a little more on younger people this time, so… yeah. But being a junior fan is rough… sigh. (And Happy Easter. ^^;)

Ahaha. I'm already planning on kidnapping my sister's kids (I don't want any) and putting them IN Johnny's, so. XD;;;
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 11:21 pm (UTC)
Well but isn't Sexy zone and Hey Say Jump aimed for the people aged between like.. 15-30? I might be wrong but I thought they were for the younger fans.. >_>

Sobs. I want like four kids, omg yes put them in johnny's. WHEN THEY GET FAMOUS MAKE SURE THEY INTRODUCE YOU TO THE COOL PEOPLE.
ミランダ (大丈夫): Kamiyama: uneasyfaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 11:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah, they're definitely marketed at younger fans, which is why Taichi's Shokura Premiums was so boring for me. It was aimed at 35+ people which means that Sexy Zone and Hey! Say! JUMP were never, ever on them. That's what I was trying to say…?

Will do XDD
ルナーたん luna_truths on April 17th, 2014 11:40 pm (UTC)
OH. Yes I wasn't paying close attention, my bad. xD

No worries XD Sorry, I was just confused by your response XD

If it makes you feel any better I get confused by my own responses sometimes... I swear I'm just like Kishi... xD

uuuuuugh, seriously? Johnnys, at least try to pretend you care a tiny bit about fans outside of the greater Tokyo area. At least do them on Fridays or something....

Woah D: dropping like flies, that's concerning. If the rumors are even true... mph. We'll just have to wait for new stuff, I guess...
ミランダ (大丈夫): Fuma: hmmfaded_lace on April 17th, 2014 07:50 am (UTC)
Yup. Because Johnny's sucks. >____<

Yeah @___@; I have no idea if it's true or not, we'll have to just wait and see, I guess… but it's scary knowing the next one could be someone I care about…
britkit27: daiki hmmbritkit27 on April 17th, 2014 08:27 am (UTC)
That it does.

Yeah, for sure.... D:
