Just a word on the Hunan TV thing: I'm pretty sure you have it right in the final analysis - the group will be managed by Johnny's when in Japan, and by eeMedia when in China (eeMedia and Hunan TV are owned by the same company, so a lot of talent that's signed to eeMedia is on Hunan TV). Also, I haven't watched the entire Day Day Up episode yet (it's a regular Friday night show called Day Day Up, and the special is "Road to Asia"), but I think when they show the pictures they're just describing the groups. One of them goes on to say that he likes Arashi and... someone whose name I've yet to learn in kanji, apparently. ;)

Okay so I watched it all (after the 40 minute mark they switch topics) and basically, they start out talking about the contest, setting out the rules, showing examples of jpop groups. One of the hosts is Japanese, and they bring out his brother, who then acts as a translator for the next guests: six dancers and a choreographer. They've all worked with Johnny's groups before, and they ask the choreographer (who says he's worked for all of them from Shounentai to now, except SMAP) which of all the Johnny's he's worked for are the most naturally gifted and who are the most hardworking: the answers are the same, Arashi and T&T. They also make a lot of jokes about buying everything with credit cards in Japan... anyway, then the choreographer goes through the types of dances that were popular in the 80s, 90s, 00s, and now, and then the host go on to guess what the future of dance will be. Then they bring out these kids who are Japanese basketball dancers or something, they dance with basketballs and soccer balls. It wasn't very interesting but the dancing was cool and them talking about how it was their first time in China etc was cute. I skipped past a lot of dancing bit since I'm watching at work, but they get some people on stage to dance as well, it's amusing and embarrassing in that way only China can be. It was mildly entertaining, but the best bits came if you understood both languages and both pop culture backgrounds/customs (ie how variety shows are structured, what's expected of an entertainer, etc). Which I'm fortunate enough to do!

PS, the source for the aramatheydidnt post originally translated 街球少年 as "trainees", which some people mistook for juniors, but I'm thinking that it's the basketball dancer guys. So... JE fandom can stop shitting themselves that Johnny's picking some Chinese kids over Kiss-My-Ft or whatever.

*spazzes* I already saw MastuJun... now Jin???? *faints*
03 25 10 (UTC) - Comment for PV of the week
You linked us to the spanish version of Venus, I assume you wanted us to listen to the Japanese version, which can be found here:


Happy 28th Birthday Tackey!

I love Tackey to bits and pieces so I might be a little biased here, but the Venus PV is excellent and its very catchy. It's definitely the kind of song that you can easily dance to. I like pretty much everything about this PV, the dance, the song, and all the effects in it, plus the variety of people. Unfortunately its not Avatar, but you have to consider the year this was made in as well.

I just watched the music station performance of kinki kids with kat-tun you've linked here.
I was kinda surprised...have never seen tsuyoshi with good hair since he tends
to have rather weird hair styling (which often don't suit him in my opinion) xD
But this (unusual normal) hair of him here suits him pretty well sun

I'm glad the PV reviews were well received but now I feel guilty that I haven't been commenting lately so here goes.

I like this PV a lot. I like that instead of making it a disco setting it's more like a house party with Tackey and Tsubasa bringing the whole world together one salsa at a time. Just like Ho Summer their dance moves are subtle but good and they look pretty nice in white. And unlike Avatar it's not 30 minutes too long.

I don't know Tackey and Tsubasa well and the only few times that I saw them they seemed to be the dark brooding type. With the past two videos I have much better impression of them.
04 01 10 (UTC) - sakura girl pv
I wanted to say my opinion concerning the sakura girl pv, because you didn't mention the reason why I don't like it very much...
It's blurry.
The colors are too light and it doesn't matter how good the actual quality of the video file is you watch, it always looks like it's low quality and this really annoys me (and a lot of other viewers as well it seems).
By the way, I've never thought that they should dance in this PV O.o
The walking scenes are really boring, the lip sync is awful, but dancing wouldn't fit either, I think xD
