JUMPing to… Osaka?  
Leave it to Johnny's to announce a concert on New Year's late enough that everyone's always got their plans made. Or at least, I already have my plans made. @___@; Now my friends and I have to change all our hotel bookings and figure out how much of New Year's we're spending in Osaka and how much we're spending in Tokyo… Yikes. But either way, I'm really happy that they're having a countdown concert, and I'm really looking forward to it! We have 4 people balloting, so hopefully we can even hit and pay base price. XD;

In other news, I discovered one of my coworkers at my elementary school is a hidden Yuto fan and I'm so stoked. She and the other 6th grade teacher asked me out to dinner, as they put it, because the 6th graders are difficult this year and I had to struggle with them. It's not really that much of a struggle, but I appreciated the gesture. I'm not super fond of the one teacher; he's the teacher I had a not-so-nice nickname for because he's so pompous, but he was pretty much fine to chat with for a few hours over dinner, and then on the way home in the car with the younger female teacher, I learned that she used to be a huge V6 fan, and she's actually super knowledgeable about Johnny's… and it turns out she's a huge Yuto fan! I was so surprised because she's said nothing about it before, but we talked for almost an hour in her car about JUMP, and she said she'd want to come to JUMP concerts in the future, and come watch JUMP DVDs. I'm so excited XD I hope that this all pans out.

This week has been stressful, but at least it ended on a positive note!

Hi! I am also planning on watching the same concert but on the 30th. Would you happen to know what is the difference between a countdown concert from a regular concert? Will there be fewer songs?

Seeing as I don't work for Johnny's management, I have no way of knowing what the plan is for the difference between the two concerts. I'm not a fan of Kinki Kids, KAT-TUN, or Kanjani8, who have had the Kyocera countdown concert for the past 7 years, so I have never been to anything but Johnny's Countdown, the one-time TV broadcast concert in Tokyo Dome. Since one starts at 6 and the other starts at 10, I would assume they'll be approximately the same length, with the one on the 30th ending around 9 and the one on the 31st ending around 1 am on January 1st, but I really have no way of knowing. I think googling about the 2008 Kinki Kids concert, the 2009-2012 Kanjani8 concerts, or the 20013-2014 KAT-TUN concerts would probably give you a better idea of what will happen. Sorry I can't be much help.

Johnny's... why couldn't they at least announce this at YokoAri or something |D But even if it will be crazy... I'm happy for them ♥

And it's so awesome that your coworker is a Johnny's fan! I hope you can talk more about JUMP with her XD

Ah, you're so prepared! I still haven't sorted out my winter holiday plans. But yeah, it sucks that you have to change plans. Sounds stressful. D: Hope it works out.

Hotels fill up super fast around the holidays, I've learned over the past few years, so this year we were on top of things… only to have JUMP screw up out plans. XD; We have backup plans now depending on what of the two shows we hit for, but it's going to be hectic. The things I do for JUMP~ XD;

I hope so too I'm really excited about it, ahah.
