I was wondering if you were still streaming the show somewhere? Just because it's easier for me to listen to a stream than download it.

as for the question....I feel like there's too much choice so my panicked answer is: Members - Ryo, Nakamaru (although I can't imagine them both in the same band for some reason :S), Akanishi, Yamapi (yh, I'm sticking all three of them in there, could be fun.) and Massu. ...ok, i basically just picked the people i like because i don't know many members from sempai groups or jrs. Are jrs included? if so i guess throw in that guy from kis-my-ft2 who was in gokusen. and take out....someone. Yamapi? I don't know. I fail.
Name: I could do a Johnny with something like Y-MANN lol. Or Poprocks and Coke! because I like that Green Day song. And Yamapi and Massu are kinda pop or at least popular. Akanashi and Ryo rock and Maru is kinda coke.

Hmmm~if I made my own Johnny's group I would have as the members-Massu, Ohno, Shingo, Sakurai, and Chinen~If I could I would put more buuut, I just put 5 for now~ For me, Massu is my favorite so I like to see him mingle with more of the other Johnny's that I like and I thought it would be interesting to hear their voices mix together~Also, I would like to see how Chinen would react when he got put into the same group as his beloved Ohno~If I could give them a name I would choose...hmmmm,this is hard. I'll name them Mango!Hehehe I don't know a cute name since for me they give off a cute aura to them in my opinion maybe the Buta5 or something~Hehehe ah or the FuwawaBoys~something cute~X3
12 04 10 (UTC)
Hehehe I was listening to your latest radio things and sorry I didn't specific the Shingo I didn't know there was more then one hehe~I meant the Katori Shingo from SMAP sorry about the confusion~^_^

Thinking...I really enjoy intergroup love, so I'd put Kame, Tackey, and Yuto together, because all the hero-worship potential is amazing. Then...MatsuJun and Shige. Just because I love them, really. Wow, I made a really weird group. Just the huge differences amuse me, plus the different type of voices within this would make a pretty interesting sound.
Name: NTKMK. Because I am worse than Johnny when it comes to initial acronyms. And lord knows, he loves his acronyms. Or it could be some variation of KYHJS. I challenge you to find out other things these letters could possibly stand for.

In every good boy band, there are the following types of people: the bad boy, the cute one, the shy one, the heartthrob, and the older brother. This makes sure that the band appeals to all types of girls, and weaves a narrative of cooperation despite personality differences that endears them to the parents of the girls who love them. So, using that formula, across generations of Johnny's, I would pick the following:

1. The Bad Boy, played by Taguchi Junnosuke. You know how in KAT-TUN, they picked Koki as the ultimate JE bad boy? Well that didn't work, because deep down Koki is the sweetest kid on the block. Taguchi is the one who's up all night with his thug friends playing pool until the wee hours of the morning. Plus, anyone who produced GIRLS must be completely badass.

2. The Cute One, played by Aiba Masaki. This might be my bias showing, but I firmly believe that Aiba is the all-round cutest Johnny's employee out there. He's got a giddy, infectious laugh, he's not always right and willing to admit it, his smile lights up a room, and he's enthusiastic to a fault and willing to try anything new. Plus, he's just never takes a bad photo.

3. The Shy One, played by Okada Junichi. It was a real toss-up between Okada and Ohkura here, but I think that Okada wins for the fact that he is, actually, incredibly shy. Ohkura just tends to get railroaded by the force that is K8, and in other circumstances would be a normal, talkative member of a group. Okada has never struck me as anything but cripplingly shy.

4. The Heartthrob, played by Kimura Takuya. The ability to top "Hottest Man in Japan" lists is not the only reason, here. In every JE group there is a "hot" member, but each of them gets bad press for some reason or another - Matsujun is a diva, Jin's a clubbing manslut, Yamapi's got dead fish eyes - but Kimutaku never gets anything but praise. And the man is drop-dead gorgeous. Fact.

5. The Older Brother, played by Matsuoka Masahiro. The other consideration here was Tackey, but personally I think that Tackey's relationship with other Johnny's is incestuous at best and dependant at worst. Three of five members of Arashi call him Matsu-nii, and they genuinely seem to have a brotherly relationship with him. Also he rides a motorcycle. 'Nuff said.

I may have thought about this too much, but it wasn't really difficult. I didn't choose based on my favorite groups or members of Johnny's, just based on what I know of every single debuted Johnny's and how they fit these particular roles. It's subjective, of course, and there may be people I'm not as familiar with as others, but I think I got pretty close.

Finally, I just have to say if this were a six-member group and we could include "the crazy one" title, it would be a bloody battle to the death between Domoto Tsuyoshi, Katori Shingo, and Shibutani Subaru. But I might just pick Tsuyoshi in the interests of maximum interband mixing. ♥

When i first heard the question, There was one JE boy I KNEW had to be in here. I think anyone who knows me at all, could guess who.

Aiba Masaki of course~ My number one asian Idol, even after my slip into kpop fandoms, haha~ ven my love for TVXQ's Changmindoesn't touch this boy. so of COURSE he had to be a member.

and then...... I got stuck lol. just WHO do you put with Aiba? of course I could just do arashi over again, because they're perfect the way they are and i love them, but where's the fun in that?

Eventually I decided, Yoko came next as my favourite K8 member. of course wouldn't it be fun to have Yoko and Aiba in the same group? If i remmeber correctly, which i may not have, they used to be good friends when they were juniors, and I assume that they still keep in touch. but they don't often get to intereact, so it'd be fun to watch them on variety shows and the like yeah? Yoko's Shy and TMI mixed with Aibaka's well, cute adorable baka fail.

and that gave me a direction to go. instead of focusing on vocals, I'd focus more on interactions I'd like to watch on shows. Which brought me to mister MC Koyama. Cause I like his personality, and he's a really good mc and well spoken, so it'd be fun to have him on shows. Koyama would balance out the others a little, but not too much I think~ They'd still be fun to watch.

and then to add in an extra element of fail/fun We'll bring in KY Junno. His adorkable puns, and inability to read the atmosphere would be interesting to watch in an environment that doesn't always end up with him being kicked by koki. plus, he's worked with Yoko, and it seems like he and Aiba would get along well hahaha~

Actually with those three i feel a little sorry for Koyama. lol. but they'd be really interesting to see~

now...... for the fifth member......

Actually, what would be REALLY COOL, would to have a rotation for the fifth member. Bring in a different boy for each single.

to be honest, they'd need someone with good, vocals, because no matter how i love, this group would probably rank dead last on the hierarchy of JE vocal talent. Bring in some fresh blood with every single, to keep the fans interested, and balance out the vocals of the boys.

I actually THOUGHT about having ueda, but then I felt bad for him, being stuck wiht this group i thought up.. and Plus while I LOVE ALL these boys..... incredibly amazingly talented vocalists they are NOT. perfectly fine vocalists, better than a lot of people, but Jin Akanishi they are not.

So rotational would be the best bet, keep people interested, and happy.

as for a name? EPIC FAIL. cuz that's probably what this group would be in real life. oh well. a girl can dream.

oh n btw. I LOVE AIBA!

Does it really have to be 5? I dunno but I was thinking of a temporary duo before which was Okada Junichi and Matsumoto Jun... (not inspired by tokyo tower... LOL) and would be named "JUNxJUN" or JUN2...

I also considered an upgrade to 3 which Includes Taguchi Junnosuke which leads to "JUNxJUNxJUN" or JUN3... (I'm just quite amused to add another Jun)

I dunno if this thing would ever worked with singles properly though... XD ~If I were Johnny... I'd experiment on a lot of temporary groups and super groups like J-FRIENDS.

My dream group would be called "The Petting Zoo" You don't need talent to get into this one. Number 1 qualification is that you look like some sort of animal.

Nakamaru-Koala Man
Yamapi- (Dead) Fish Man?
Maruyama Ryuhei- Pig Man
Joshima-Oragutan Man
Taguchi- Giraffe Man

On the upside, this odd bunch can pretty much be a band. If you don't mind drums being replaced by a mixture of beatbox and tap shoes... Voice wise, I'm not really sure how this would turn out.... As for their first single, I'd probably name it: 動物に餌を与えないで下さい (Visitors may not feed the animals)
