I just like to get my 2 cents in...

Hikaru was playing bass on the HSJ Music Station performance - says the bass player - and a lot more convincingly than he drums. Heh. I understand your ambivalence towards the neon-rainbow bell-bottomed leisure suits but I will stick up for them! I love the cheezy Osmond Brothers/Brady Bunch Variety Hour vibe to the costumes and the song. But maybe it's because I'm an old lady and appreciate HSJ as "cute" rather than "hot." Food for thought?

Other comments - I need to watch that Tacky Channel thing ASAP!

And my impression of Fujigaya was summed up in this hilarious post.

*looks off in one direction*

Rachael here~ No audio this time. I've been sneezing all day and I don't think you need an audio clip filled with nothing but gross snotty sounds. D:

Fujigaya is one of those Johnny's that I love, but more importantly I love to make fun of. He was known for having such long, curly hair, and with long bangs and I'm glad he cut them off because now he looks less like a girl. I also think he took private hip-roll lessons from both Kame and Jin during KAT-TUN tours, because he looks like he belongs on a pole when he dances sometimes.....but I can't stop watching and thinking dirty thoughts.....Even with the mental image that he's Kisumai's slut, I know he's serious about his job. I remember reading his jweb and he was talking about his role for Ikemen Desu Ne and how he was putting his real emotions into Shu and that he wasn't acting out the emotions for the role. If that's true, I never want to break his heart because he's mastered the kicked-puppy look and I would feel incredibly sad. Also, I have a BILLION TRILLON thanks to Koki. If it weren't for him, Fujigaya would have quit before he got the chance to debut. So thank you, Koki. <3

Yeah, it's late and you may have already recorded. If you have...oh well?

Fujigaya was one of the only ones from Kisumai that I could reliably identify for a while, since they obviously did push him to the front pretty early on. But really I remembered him because he always seemed like a weird cross between Jin and Koki. I was so surprised the first time I saw Kisumai perform (instead of just in skits or backdancing or whatever) - he physically reminded me so much of Jin that I was expecting Jin's voice too I guess. Within the group, though, he's probably my favorite still.

Now if only his acting was a little better? Maybe it's unfair - I've only seen him in Ikemen and I've only been skimming that one, but....facial expressions please? We get blank or....occasionally slightly-less-blank-kinda-sad.

I would've loved to apply to be a host because Kisumai's my #1 JE group right now but with my concert/work schedule, I probably wouldn't be able to record.

Fujigaya is my 2nd favorite Kisumai member (after Kitayama). I love his smile, his voice, and his loud, annoying laugh. What I love most is his image gap. On the surface, he's all sexy and confident but he seems to balk a bit at being touched and has a very, very girly side (hello? He wears scrunchies as an accessory. I haven't worn scrunchies since I was a kid in the 90's) He has a sadistic side in concert but his interviews are often romantic in an almost naive way. He quickly snuck up the list of my favorite JE boys and is likely to stay there. He knows how to use his cute but he's also a huge tease. Quoting my friend J, "Fujigaya talks with his body." If that's the case, I am listening because Fujigaya can talk to me all day long.

p.s. The concert footage was all filmed after the 7/31 Kisumai evening concert ended. I was somewhere in the arena that day. Only the Ren scenes were filmed with the audience there. The scenes with Mio were filmed elsewhere and spliced into the Yokohama Arena footage. The corresponding scenes with the other actors were also filmed elsewhere or at other times.
