About the Sexy Zone news, snow kindly already translated the Oricon article, and since we have no news from the agency, I'm not going to comment on it as of right now. As soon as the agency releases information on it, I'll translate it and post it here.
Setting the bad aside, this weekend was amazing. JUMP was really amazing, and seeing them twice in one day was amazing, too. That group has really come so far in such a short time… things were so bad this time two years ago, and yet now, they're all so even, and all get so much stage time, and they just all seem so happy together, and to genuinely love and respect one another. I'm going to write a full report for both shows, but for now… they were really amazing, all nine of them, and the show really showed how much they've grown in the past two years.
Also, I'll talk more about the guys who came to watch later, but one exciting thing that happened that wasn't really relevant to the show is that I walked behind Nagata Jiei and 3 other random juniors that I didn't recognize from about halfway between the venue and the station until we got to the station. XD The guys just sort of sauntered up from the direction of the venue; there's an above-ground walkway and then the ground level regular sidwalks. Mostly, fans use the above-ground walkway, so the boys met up with us in the crowd right as we walked off the walkway. I couldn't tell who they were from behind right away, but eventually, I caught a glance of Nagata's face and I knew it was them. I don't really know who they are, but it was still exciting. XD;
I'll get to more later, but right now, I have to be at work bright and early tomorrow, typhoon or no, so good night!
