Apropos of nothing because I haven't even listened yet, but I just saw this week's Shokura and thought immediately of you, because Shige turns up blond. And while my first reaction was "Whyyyy, Shige?" I think he's actually really rocking it, maybe better than Tegoshi, so I think he definitely deserves a nomination for the Johnnys Who Look Best While Blond competition.

Uhm, and the Chirarizumu performance really didn't hurt.

I, I'm actually going to grab the podcast now!
08 03 08 (UTC)
Blond!Shige. Just saw the screencaps. :x Better than Tegoshi, maybe, but still not impressed, unfortunately. Black is his colour, yo.

...Perhaps the Chirarizumu perf would help me change my mind. Momentarily. :x
08 06 08 (UTC)
Jumping in on Shige's hair, the blond actually looks better in person than I thought it would. Saw his butai about a week and a half ago and wasn't completely shocked by the color.
08 03 08 (UTC)
OMG, don't tell me that that's really Tsubasa on that pic!? O-O *whistles* Nice cosplay of the Beckham couple... xDDD

In JE, who do you think is the most masculine?

Masculine in who come off as the manliets like who behaves more like a guy?^^"

Koki and Nakamaru because, according to my brother "That guy can rap and the other one can beatbox, duh". Though when I showed him the KoKame pics and that ctKT ep where they tried to make Maru bungee jump... Anyway, I asked them and my sister said that she'd say Shige because she likes his clothes and his face (totally agreeing with her btw xD), Yamapi (for the same reasons), Ryo (same reasons again) and Toma.
But then again, there's TOKIO. I mean, come on, can you imagine Nagase in a nurse outfit like Jin? xDDDD
08 03 08 (UTC)
I didn't know you were gonna play it in the podcast...I'm embarrassed ^////^

I downloaded V6 on Heyx3. So funny xDDD And I think that girl was right about the Japanese aging well. Or at least idols do...

flkgjdklgj PRINCESS MASSU! So cuuuute~

I left a voicemail and I bet I sound really dumb. *shot*

Peyton. It's TOTALLY Canucks. I'm positive about this. I even looked it up to make double sure.

Oh! Also, Peyton, I say meme like you say meme. :D

so do i.

this is pretty fascinating. i can't help but wonder if it the fact that each of us has a background in french has anything to do with it (because that's my reasoning).
08 04 08 (UTC)
Hmm. To be honest, I used to say it like "meehm." I think I heard someone say it like "meem" and copied after that. lol
08 04 08 (UTC)
lol, i think i'm getting confused again. best if we sort it out the next time we're on skype together. you'll have to clarify exactly what "meem" sound you mean, how you really pronounce it. XD;;
08 03 08 (UTC)
I feel like all the masculine JE guys are the older sempais: Okada Junichi, Nagase Tomoya, Kimura Takuya. I don't know them all that well, but those faces popped up in my head right away. Ryo and Jin are quite masculine too. Idk, there are a lot of more masculine guys in JE than there are girly ones, so it's hard to pinpoint for me.

Anyway, good episode, dears~ Thank you! ♥
08 04 08 (UTC)
Haha, okay first before I forget, I'm only halfway through this episode but, somebody said that Yasuko to Kenji will be the first drama Yasu and Ohkura appear in together, but, if you count mini dramas, they were in episode 10 of this show together: http://newshfan.livejournal.com/44384.html. :] *goes off to finish the episode*
08 04 08 (UTC)
Yay finished the episode~ Anyway, great episode as usual, and hearing about Pride was awesome. When I heard you were doing that drama next though, Sapuri, I was a bit worried 'cos I'd seen a few episodes and I didn't really like it much, but then there was so much flailing and saying you'd make the listeners like it, or appriciate it, so maybe after listening to the next podcast of this I'll want to pick that drama up again. :D Hee, also the rap-a-thon entries were great! Yupyup, anyway, can't wait till the next episode~
08 04 08 (UTC)
this post totally made my day. ^^ I saw it yesterday and just had to spam my flist by saying that I was mentioned on your podcast. ^^ I feel extremly honored. xD

as for your question who is the most masculine in JE I would go with Koki because I somehow can not see him being girly, but then again I haven't really seen that many clips with so I could be wrong. or Ryo, but then again I'm bias about him, so..yeah. *g*

and yeah for Sapuri, I actually checked it out before because Peyton mentioned it and it really is an awesome drama. so I'm really looking forward to hear your commentary on it. ^^
08 07 08 (UTC)
I should answer this before I forget and end up not being able to answer. xDD

In JE, who do you think is the most masculine?
Umm...well thats honestly a tough one. For some reason though, Nagase pops into my head when I think about it. I don't really know why..he just does, I think its the influence of MBMH and a few random TOKIO clips I've seen.
08 07 08 (UTC)
I was very surprised to hear my comment on JEP Cast. Thanks! But I'm not a she, I'm a he. XD The rumor part was interesting, because I totally missed this one. (Probably because I'm not really active in Arashi communitries)

As for the question;
I think KAT-TUN's Koki has to be my answer. He's in my opinion one of the only JE members who isn't girly. =P He tried it once (see these pictures and read the subtitles XD 1-2-3-4) and it just didn't work out. So, he's just not suited to be a girl. (As one of the only JE members).

I also sent in my Rap-a-thon submission. At first I wanted to do one of Shige's raps. (Super saiyan Shige!), but I decided to take Koki's love train. XD
08 07 08 (UTC)
Ah, the perils of being in this fandom I suppose, automatically assuming most people are girls XD

Got your rap submission and while I am personally sad that you did not do Super Saiyan Shige like me, Koki needs more people on his love train I suppose.

08 07 08 (UTC)
i have added you guys. its enjoyable to listen to you guys about je. :] i love it. haha thank you for this special newscast of je. it's been a pleasure listening and fangirling with you guys. i am looking forward to more jep_casts :]
08 08 08 (UTC)
In JE, who do you think is the most masculine?

Lets see the first person to pop into my head would hav to be kame. When I think of him, I see his body in Ichi Pondo and my god he sure has gotten more masculine body wise since his eariler yearss. Then i started thinking about kame in some of the roles he gets in dramas and most of his roles include him having the attitude of "I want the girl so im going try my hardest to get her" He had that in Ichi Pondo, Tatta hitotsu no koi (cant remember much bout Sapuri X_X) and Nobuta wo produce when he wanted to help nobuta. Even in gokusen 2 he had a strong kizuna with his other classmates later into the show (even though this happens in every gokusen season XD) so that is my pick for who i think is the most masculine in JE.
08 09 08 (UTC)
I'm gonna have to jump on the sempai train and say that the older groups are definitely more masculine than the younger ones, mostly because they're harder to mistake for girls. Especially TOKIO. I think that TOKIO is, without a doubt, the most manly of all the Johnny's. The possible exception to this is Taichi, who I can never look at the same after Fantastipo. If I had to pick the most masculine of them, it'd probably be Leader, because he climbed up the side of a huge seaside cliff without any kind of real harness. Proof.

Also, since you brought it up, here's another girlie Sho picture from way back when (maybe an old photobook?). Pay specific attention to number 6 at the top. If it wasn't part of a collage of Sho in weird outfits I would not have known that was actually a guy...
08 16 08 (UTC)
Ok so whenever you talk about pv's it seems you talk about the budgets being like 25 cents or something like that, and well since it says that V6 is going to have a pv for their song 'Swing' I have a theory about that pv. They'll be in a park on swings and they'll only have to spend like 5-10 cents on it because its a park and you can go to parks for free...ok so wait, maybe they'd just spend like nothing on the pv at all because parks are free. xDD

I almost though that Peyton was going to say 'Hi mother complex yo.' instead of what she really said which was 'Hi mother complex like woah.'. xDD

And..yeah it took me long enough to listen to this episode. I kept getting distracted by things. xD
