Some thoughts as a SMAP fan...

About Nakai and Kimura, there have been rumors going on for years that they don't get along, but really, they do get along perfectly fine.

It's just that, for the past 15 years or so, SMAP fans always get overly excited whenever the 2tops (nickname for the pair amongst fans) have the slightest interaction with each other. Even Taka-san knows of SMAP fans' love for the 2tops, which is why he mentioned about fans hoping to see the two in the same team for the games. Nakai and Kimura probably realized this a long time ago and felt embarrassed about it, which is perhaps why they're sometimes awkward around each other on screen.

But they're really not on bad terms, in fact I thought this episode of Tokuban showed how much they actually understand and are in sync with each other. Notice the many times they hit Bando Eiji together at random moments -- Kimura would catch Nakai's eye, creep behind Bando-san, and they'd both whack him together in perfect timing. Perfect partners in crime? ;)

Maybe I'll be around to listen now and then.
75th episode? 25 more for live recording??
I'll be joining again! --v6vanguard :p

My answer to the question of the week: Hadaka-san; no more thoughts. Its very much self-explanatory. ^^

Okay, so I didn't much care for the 5X10, but it has definately grown on me. I like it now. And the bonus song (called "Attack It!") is AWESOME. T_T It's not techno. It's totally pumping and a song that revs me up. IF I were a choreographer, I'd have fun thinking up choreography for this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp_7UMKS8F4

Most improved idol: Sho Sakurai. He doesn't beat off rabid fans with his umbrella anymore. XD j/k. Totally kidding, Sho fans!! *hides*

I don't know that many yet, but I think that Okamoto Keito probably improved a lot since he first debuted. If you look at clips from the time of the debut, he seemed like a very quiet, awkward kind of kid. Now, two years later, he's pretty comfortable around the camera and seems to have much more confidence when he's dancing or on the stage. He apparently finally has a solo song now, and now we can hear what his voice sounds like and it isn't bad at all.
