                Postpone means postpone? Or just, never again? XD
          ▪ Goro to play Aya's brother in Nagareboshi [ 1, 2 ]
                Peyton talks about the plot of Nagareboshi. She's mildly surprised at Goro playing a supporting role.
                BEST IMAGE EVER--UETO AYA WITH LONG HAIR. (at least so says Peyton.)
                We don't have drama seg anymore (sadly due to lack of time), but Peyton pimps out a currently running drama with Ueto Aya named Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite.

                TAKKI IS FAIL AT DARTS. LOL

          ▪ Massu to appear on Veterinarian Dolittle [ 1, 2 ]
                "How much you wanna bet he's going to be the animal?"

          ▪ More on Koyama's Guest of Room #0 stageplay [ 1, 2 ]
                It appears Koyama's stageplay is going to be about his story continued.
                We go off on a bit of a tangent and talk about Hina's story in Guests of Room #0. (drama segment kind of?)

          ▪ Ohkura on Ousama no Brunch, Sept 18 [ 1 ]
                This really makes Peyton want to finish GM Odore Doctor.
                Higashiyama asks if he could perform with K8 during their tour as long as there's a stage with a pop-up panel. (Ohkura turns him down. XD)

                Peyton bitches about that last line, "Even though I'm a freeter, I'm gonna buy us a house (bitch)."

                Kami's totally reminded of Rurouni Kenshin--Koichi would be the perfect Kenshin.

Love you only is a very good song, I like it a lot. Mabo looks exactly like Vash from Trigun especially when he wears the glasses. Mabo hasn't really changed all that much, he still looks the same. Nagase's shorts are absolutely hilarious to see, because they are so short. Nagase was pretty cute back then and he is still hot today.

Here is a live performance of Love You Only:


Needless to say when I think of Love You only, I think of Nagase's shorts. Its like a really scary image that is imprinted into my mind. Its not that he looks bad in them its just its not something you would see JE boys wear these days.

Just called the number and left a message.

Original version
Dang this is old if they are that young. I was totally liking the song...until the squeaky voices hit my poor, bleeding ears. The 90s or whatever decade this is from style is really not my style, but I suppose it won't kill me to listen to this....WHAT ARE THEY WEARING!? Is that, like, a man bikini?!? This PV...is just them playing. It almost feels like some fan just took concert footage and put it together. The bright smiles kind of make up for this... whatever-this-is though.

10th version
Huh, they are kinda old. I like this song now! Their voices are nice and don't give me a headache. The PV....walking around a studio? Seriously? It gives a relaxed and simple feel that's nice but it's too like a PV making rather than a legit PV. Although, I did like the beginning/end with the picture thingy. (Random: in the related videos section there was "[Making] LOV/E YOU ONLY/ [10th ver.]" that I totally read as "making love")

I sound so harsh and critical of Tokio. >.> I don't hate them, and I like the re-cover song, but both of the PVs just weren't spectacular! or anything.

I agree with you here, the 90's were interesting, but the styles were REALLY hilarious at some points. I watch tons of videos from all eras and the 90's were clearly the worst. I can tolerate the 80's videos better than the 90's ones. You have V6 wearing psychadellic clothes in some of them, KinKi kids wearing huge wide pants and Koichi with really long hair. The only redeeming factor about the 90's for me is that Masayuki Sakamoto is hot in the PV for Generation Gap by V6. I kind of like the premise for the older videos like Music for the People by V6. I like computers and technology, even older technology so I appreciate the Music for the People PV quite a bit. But oh the hairstyles... they were truly awful! I do like the music because its not auto tuned and I like the eurobeat style of music in the 90's (I find myself listening to the older music sometimes to escape auto tune sometimes). However you are probably better off listening to it without watching the PV's.

I realize there are a lot of random comments here about the 90's and I wanted to type this stuff in my original post however its not really relevant to the Tokio PV so I left it out. I also don't really have anyone else to talk about this stuff to, so I hope you guys don't mind.

Of course in 10-15 years some other fans will probably be writing comments like, the fashions were really weird during the year 2010!

Actually, Arashi is the first JE group to perform in China, Shanghai to be exact.
