I think my ability to think objectively about Yabu is generally clouded by my deep desire for him to stop singing in 95% of his solos. Sorry, Yabu!

(No, but seriously, isn't he 19? Shouldn't he have finished puberty?)

The biggest JE mystery: so, Toma is so talented, etc., but why didn't he get to debut???!

Every time someone mentions this, I think of the Shounen Club Premium episode that he guested on (which I didn't watch, anyway >_>;;) and newshfan's summary/highlights for it, how he said that he's happy for what he's already accomplished; he might not have debuted by being a singer, but he's more or less debuted as an actor, that's he's done more than a lot of already-debuted Johnny's. And that his fans should be happy for him and how far he's gotten, even without officially debuting. ...wow, this probably would have been better in the last post.

Anyway, the main point of my comment was that I seem to be one of those people that like all mostly of the songs on Break The Records. Idk, QoP had those awesomely epic songs that I just love but BtR has a lot more that I really like. I guess it kind of cancels each other out.

Oh, and, Yabu. Um. I'm still waiting for his voice to change, but I guess that is what makes him him. He's a qt pi but I think I'll always love Shoon more. And...Idk, I think if you asked me this a few years ago, I'd be all spazztastic about it. XD;;

I'm more partial to Yabu from the Ya-Ya-Yah days....I don't know, I just think he grew up awkwardly...the epically high cheekbones of doom and all. Chibi!Yabu looks more squishy. o.O

I'm also not too big on his voice, but I love his solo "Rain Dance". Aside from that, meh, I'm indifferent on the kid.

I'm supposed to get my KAT-TUN album and NewS single any day now. My roommate got her stuff today, so hopefully it'll be soon. I tried to avoid as much of the KAT-TUN album leakage as much as possible, but failed when it came to "1582". .____.''' The obscene slurpage made for some pretty pictures.

well I must say I don't really follow hey!say!jump! because when I see them I wonder "who let the children loose on stage again?"- it doesn't matter how much they grow up either, they will always be chibi juniors to me... however the one thing I remember of Yabu is a clip I saw which shows Jin and Kame in that ridiculous shark hat waking Yabu and Hikaru up. Yabu is obviously not fully awake yet and Jin is being really S tormenting him- it's very funny and sooooo cute! other then that, i've only seen glimpses of him on shounen club, so I just remember him admitting he did a photo shoot without realising his fly was undone... and yeah that's all I've got I'm afraid! I'll try harder next time

what is your impression of Hey!Say!JUMP's Yabu Kota?
Amazing. They say there's no leader in JUMP, but it's obviously Yabu. He does everything, and still manages to ask like the cutest thing ever. He totally does not get enough credit for what he does. It cannot be easy haveing to put up with the other 9 at alll.
Overall, Yabu is awesome.

I wonder why I can never get the first episode in the playlist to play with any of my browsers ~.~ .
Only until another new episode come out, the previous newest episode finally agrees to play.

I'd have to say that i have a special place in my heart for Hey! Say! JUMP because they were the first JE group that i found in September of this past year, but i found the older JE groups and now i am hooked for life on JE! :) As for Yabu Kota, i think he is a great leader of Hey! Say! JUMP, even though Hey! Say! JUMP doesn't have an official leader. You can tell that Yabu is the older brother figure of the group because he is the oldest and the unofficial leader. Keep up the good work Yabu!

And yay for JEP Cast!! I love you guys!!!

Yabu has definatly grown on me.
HSJ is what brought me into the JE fandom, so the first time I saw Yabu was in Ultra Music Power and I didn't really have a solid opinion on him until a few months later when I saw Ya-ya-yah for the first time.
Yabu used to be adorable and oh-so-very talented. And he is still very talented.
I'm not too keen on Yabu's singing voice now, actually I think his voice is higher than Chinen's, but Yabu is nontheless Yabu and I will always love him. Unusually high voice or not.
HSJ isn't said to have a leader, but I think that's b/s and Yabu should take over soon or else Yamada is going to take over...

Your opening song made me really happy ^^
I personally feel like, because Johnny's isn't really backing Toma up, the rest of us fans are, with full force:P
OMW-the news on NEWS was SO amazing. I didn't know this was happening, but THANK YOU for letting us know:D

I felt like "Break the Records" was one of KAT-TUN's best releases, but that's just me ^^

To answer the question: My first impression of Yabu came from Ya-ya-yah's "Onigokko" series; he was skinny and cute:P
I don't follow HSJ, but I feel like he's 'leader' material (if HSJ were to have a leader).

Thanks for your hard work!! :D

Oh! I forgot to add that apparently, Yabu was one of the high-pitched background singers in NEWS' "News~Nippon" release. So, now every time I hear that song, I think of him too:P
