Welcome Melissa! :D It's nice to listen to more people again because this makes it so much more fun!

Also, I'd just like to give my 2 cents to the huge pile of 2 cents you already have. *lol*
Well... maybe it's more than 2 cents. :x Just shorten it however you like.

I think, 4-member NEWS will work out in the end. :) Because I think, the last four members really are the heart of the group.
While discussing the situation about Pi and Ryo, it would have been easy to just disband NEWS and let everyone have their own way and in your pod cast you already pointed out all the down sides (songs they can't sing anymore, breaking up the vocals again etc), so why didn't they just disband once and for all? Tegomasu could just go their way and the management probably wouldn't protest because NEWS is not a promising group anymore. But judging from Koyama's messages especially, I believe the members were not interested in breaking up. Everyone who was listening to Koyama's message could tell that he is loaded with determination. Also, unlike 6-member NEWS, they were able to pull off a variety show that had a questionable concept but was funny as hell nevertheless. The chemistry is right between them.

Also, I think they should totally sing "Hoshi wo mezashite" again. I just rewatched their 4-member performance on Ya-ya-yah in 2007 and seeing them together for the last refrain really gave me the idea of "being reborn" because they totally are. But I can understand when some fans have mixed feelings about this.

Looking forward to your next episode. :)

Thanks for the listen! I enjoyed it being with 4 members too. It definitely brings in more opinions.

And thanks for your comment. If we're not careful this next episode may have a whole 3 dollars and 50 cents of thoughts.. XD
10 14 11 (UTC) - I only got half-way through the ep on my morning commute...
... but I wanted to comment and say WELCOME MELISSA!

It's great to have an Arashi fan and Matsujun fan on the show. ;)

(Also, the description of Tamamori and his indifference to the red-dress lady was priceless.)
10 14 11 (UTC) - Re: I only got half-way through the ep on my morning commute...
AWWW!!!! Thanks! XD

I love it when I meet fellow Arashi fans. And I'm glad you enjoyed the episode. Hopefully I did okay... :P

Flawless Matsujun needs more appreciation... ;)

You did a great job!!

4nin Jep-Cast on 4nin NEWS was very enjoyable.

I'm not actually a News fan, so I'm not as invested, but I actually find it easier to "forgive" Yamapi than Jin, Because he's in Japan and not removed from the situation. Oddly, one of the things that I can't get over with Jin is that whenever he leaves Kat-tun by their lonesome, he is completely removed from the situation and a lot of the limelight- but the other five have to answer the bulk of the reporters questions, appear in all the magazines and keep up their smiles, double their workload so they don't go under, etc. While I know that's not what's happening, in a way, Jin gets to run away from that, and be somewhere where the heat isn't as on all the time. But Yamapi and Ryo are right there in the middle of things, are subject to the same things as the rest of News and have to build their careers in the midst of public backlash. It makes me admire him just a little more. I may become a Yamapi fan as this all plays out.
And how very fitting that "Sayaendou" is the PV to discuss now... I love Massu taking the pig and ignoring the treasure. Go for the important stuff, man! (KAT-TUN are better pirates, though...)

Welcome to Melissa!

In regards to NEWS, I think we all saw it coming, but it somehow still managed to catch us of guard. One of those things that makes sense, but still makes you got 'What?!' for a second when you find out. But I think what's surprised me most about it is the reaction in LJ fandom. I've seen a quite a few people really hating on Yamapi for this decision and qualifying it with things he said years ago. Fine if you want to hate on him, fine if your disappointed. But to do it for something he said so long ago isn't fair. He may have once said he wouldn't leave and we should keep supporting/waiting for them, but things do change. At the time he said these things he most probably sincerely meant them and I can't understand people who feel like he's been betraying them or lying to them because of this. It also strikes me as strange that some people expect these kinds of negotiations/discussions to happen in the public eye. There's no way any of them could have hinted to Yamapi and Ryo leaving before it was 100% set in stone and the company decided they could release the information. It would be too risky if plans changed for whatever reason and also, company's like this like to have as much control over the information as they can, for good reason.

-_- maybe Johnny should start looking into graduation-concept groups
10 19 11 (UTC) - Apology in advance for long comment
This episode of jep cast was like group therapy. I honestly think you have helped me with my current news heartbreak.

To be honest it may be my bias for Yamapi but I feel like I can understand his leaving more. I could definatly see Yamapi's leaving coming (though it still hurt) but I didnt expect Ryo's quit so much. I think its because I've never really been a Ryo fan so I havent seen quite how busy he can be. I was sort of used to him coping with his schedule and I always thought some other idols were busier. While I dont feel any of the hate for either of these two I am a bit dissappointed but I can see they are busy. Funnily enough I felt more dissappointed with Ryo leaving but as I say thats probably bias. I guess it will just take time for us fans.

Ofcourse I'm still gonna listen to Yamipi and the small amount of Kanjani8 I do listen to. I really do hope the other 4 do well but I dont want Yamapi or Ryo to suffer either.

I always thought Yamapi was smarter than Jin for releasing in Japan rather than America because we all know that hes well established their and he wont have the obstacles to overcome.

I really do want to thank you. I feel like this episode has really made me feel alot better. I hope four member News can push through and succeed.

Also welcome Melissa, you seem to fit in seemlessly.
