05 25 10 (UTC) - I hope that rotating platform thingy makes it way to my room soon
Is it horrible that I didn't realize Jin wasn't in the pv until there was like a minute left? Yeah, I thought so xD Sorry, I kinda fade in and out of the jpop fandom.

On SMAP's Freebird: Well, not even 10 seconds in I was immediately reminded of Arashi's Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi pv. In the beginning at least. I like really like the song. Even though the pv is simple it's very relaxing and the members look like their having a good time in it.
05 25 10 (UTC) - Is MY Bias Too Loud?
Well, atleast Peyton finally pointed out that Rhey and Kami are a bit NewS-biased. I love you guys but it's nice to hear KT-TUN being defended once in awhile.

I'm a newer fan since I pretty much binged on KAT-TUN for the last few months. I was actually proud that they managed to dance in-sync for the PV but that still doesn't mean I like it. I actually prefer Fall Down despite it sounding like 3 songs mashed together. It's sort of the the hot mess I expect from KAT-TUN. Going tends to remind me of Hey!Say!JUMP!. Ick.

And since I'm not used to seeing SMAP as a musical group (more used to their acting/hosting), the Freebird PV was kind of surprising. It's filmed like a family vacation and it's really cute how they all seem to be enjoying themselves.

About the jr./ SmapxSmap episode, which I though was awesome, since the juniors only interact with HSJ instead of their other seniors. Which I think should change......
Next year September is my prediction for another Johnny's group because it follow the pattern of volley ball groups. I know that Johnny is VERY unpredictable, but what are your ideas for his group regarding members or how many.
I know this is a weird place to bring it up since I never commented before, but I would like to here other people's opinion since it has been bugging me.
