So, I tried calling your phone number, and I got that lovely message where the phone is disconnected or out of service... sorry, guys, it's the thought that counts, and I thought I could use a phone...
but I uploaded myself! Hope that works!
And as a side note, anyone hear of where to get tickets for Jin's America tour, since that's supposed to start in less than a month? Because I haven't, and if they cut it so close to the deadline, he might have a real problem making it in a foreign country.

Poor Jin~ But I really can't see him as a legit American success, as much as I want him and KAT-TUN to do well. Diito on makoto_no_mori's question on the lack info on Jin's tour.

I like it the song! Such a refreshing sound, not quite what I was expecting, from my current impressions of Kanjani8. The instrument playing is very nice, it makes them seems like a legtit band instead of a boy band. I have no idea what the lyrics are saying, other than being able to pick out a few words, so I don't know whether the angsty emo loner scenes are appropriate. From what I can, they are singing about trying harder and trying again, so I suppose they could be telling their depressed counterparts to cheer up or something.
Well, whatever, I really liked the rock feel of the PV and the song in general. This unexpected side of K8 was very lovely.

Summer dramas~ I have watched...the first episode of Joker and the first episode of Natsu no Koi of shinning rainbows or whatever. Then I got side tracked by Tokujo Kabachi partly for Sho and partly for Maki, but that was a spring drama, so yeah. (Unlike a certain JEP Cast host, I am not sick of Arashi since I don't have to pay attention to all the stuff they do every week. XDD)

Not much to say about the pv except that I loved it. Kanjani 8 needs a video likes this every once in a while to show they're not just the funny band. And who knew the guys could work the brooding idol look.

As for summer dramas I've stuck mainly with the Johnnies. I loved Joker from the first episode (glad I didn't know the plot ahead of hand). I'm sticking with Natsu Niji and I'm slowly getting more invested. Unobore does give me a good laugh.

The one non Johnny show I like is Nihongo no Nihonjin Shiranai just for the Japanese and Kanji lessons :-)

I have very high hopes for Koichi's musical to come to the US too, but I hope it comes to at least a couple different cities and not just one. I actually would prefer to see a stage play especially a musical than a concert, because with a stage play you get everything, singing, dancing, acting. With a concert its all singing, dancing and depending on the group you go see a little bit of acting. Another thing is I hope they don't water down the play any for the US, If I go to see this I want it to be the original japanese production translated into english with the whole thing remaining in tact, especially since this will likely require me to get on a plane and overcome a major fear of flying that I have, plus spend a lot of money, but seeing Koichi in person would be totally priceless for me. I might be a little hard to please but after years of seeing what has been done to anime when it is brought to the states I just worry that they will water this down too much and ruin it.

Also I watched the documentary and I cried during the one scene, even though I don't know japanese I still watched it.
