 N E W S

          ▪ Main personalities for 35th 24 Hour Television [ 1, 2 ]
               ▪ This is Arashi's third time being the personalities, having done it 2004 and 2008.
               ▪ Peyton's appalled by this, but who's really surprised.
               ▪ That said, even Melissa (who we talked to last week about this) was surprised by this news!
               ▪ We have a theory why they revealed this so early--time management!

Yamashita Tomohisa
          ▪ To sing theme song for drama [ 1, 2 ]
               ▪ The title of the song is Ai, Texas, and it is to be released under Warner Music Japan.
               ▪ What the hell does a "punchy" song mean?! Will we want to punch Yamapi out after listening?
               ▪ This is probably going to be disconnected to the drama, just like Daite Senorita with Kurosagi.
               ▪ So Jin and Yamapi are under the same label? Hmmm.

          ▪ Yamapi in Shanghai Countdown, Dec. 31 [ 1 ]
               ▪ This was pre-recorded a few days before. XD
               ▪ Peyton gets someone to translate this since Yamapi talks solely in Mandarin--rehearsed Mandarin.
               ▪ Yamapi's voice sounds like a monster when slowed down. XD

          ▪ Route 66, ep 1 [ 1 ]
               ▪ Yamapi is a good drinker because he can order well and drinks well? According to a bartender anyway.
               ▪ lolol Yamapi buys a ham for his car ride.
               ▪ Wow, the conversations on this show felt so fake and staged. Awkward.
               ▪ We wonder who and how many are traveling with Yamapi.

          ▪ KAT-TUN no Sekaiichi Dame na Yoru, Jan. 1 [ 1 ]
               ▪ "Every KAT-TUN fan I know who's seen this has been really kind of appalled on some level or another."
               ▪ ...Can you tell Kami hates Himura from Bananaman? XDDDDD
               ▪ Peyton details what happens on this show so you don't waste your time watching it yourself. XDDD
               ▪ Has KAT-TUN and Kanjani8 swapped in terms of popularity ranking? Would that explain this show? o.o

Akanishi Jin
          ▪ To release new American single [ 1, 2, 3 ]
               ▪ The title of the single will be Sun Burns Down, released January 24th.
               ▪ There will be a Youtube contest! So be on the look out~
          ▪ First album and American tour [ 1, 2 ]
               ▪ Japonicana will be released in both America and Japan on March 6, 7 respectively.
               ▪ The Japanese version will have 4 more songs than the American because the songs are Japanese.
               ▪ ...The title is Japan + America + -na (Latin feminine) = girl album.
               ▪ Just realized it's not technically an "American" tour! Jin hits LA (March 9), Vancouver (March 10), Honolulu (March 12), New York (March 15), San Francisco (March 17).

          ▪ To have an Asia tour, new single [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]
               ▪ Tour will go to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and Korea (as well as some at home in Japan) from March to June.
               ▪ XDDDDD Peyton elaborates on her Morimoto thoughts to clarify some things.
               ▪ Their new single will be Super Delicate, theme song to Yamada's drama, scheduled to be released in February.

          ▪ Wonderful Cupid/Garasu no Mahou single and PVs [ 1, 2, , 3 ]
               ▪ So this single kind of failed. >.> Wonderful Cupid is such a fail song and a fail PV.
               ▪ On the other hand, Nakayama's Garasu no Mahou is rather nice. ♥
               ▪ Peyton clarifies this is a song Nakayama sang at the butai with Takki.

Sexy Zone
          ▪ To hold their first concert [ 1 ]
               ▪ Tokyo at Tokyo International Forum Hall A on February 11, 12. Osaka at Umeda Arts Theater Main Hall on February 18, 19.
               ▪ Small halls? Sexy Zone starting a little small, huh?

          ▪ Kouhaku, Dec. 31 (includes news point on ratings) [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11,12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 ]
               ▪ We start out talking about how Kouhaku's ratings set the highest ratings record for 2011.
               ▪ NYC were the top batters for the White Team, singing Yume Tamago and Yuuki 100%.
               ▪ We do a little comparing between the NYC performance and the AKB48 performance.
               ▪ We tangent a little and talk about the performances in a general sense to explain the said victory.
               ▪ TOKIO performs Miageta Ryusei, Arashi has 3 performances: Furusato, a medley, and a Disney performance! ♥
               ▪ Arashi's medley had this dancing interlude in the middle and it was fabulous. Peyton is also super happy with Hatenai Sora as the ending to their medley.
               ▪ Peyton is also super happy that SMAP ends with Original Smile.

          ▪ Johnny's Countdown, Dec. 31 [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 ]
               ▪ Kami has uncommon fandom thoughts and thought Countdown was kind of fail (in that people were failing left and right XD).
               ▪ Andalucia ni Akogare performance is hands-down the best thing of this Countdown. HOSHIT ALL THAT SEX. *__________*
               ▪ KINKI'S SET IS ALL SORTS OF FABULOUS. *______*
               ▪ Kanjani8 was hysterical with their costumes. A++++
               ▪ Tsubasa fails and doesn't ring in the year with Takki.
               ▪ Kamen Budakai was fucking awesome with the way they filmed it since Shounentai were in separate locations.
               ▪ NEWS!!!!!! It was kind of nice seeing them as four.
               ▪ A Hikaru Genji member showed up and performed with Kis-My-Ft2! Kind of like passing the torch.

          ▪ CDTV Premier Live, Dec. 31 [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ]
               ▪ Yes, that's right. Yamapi and Jin were on. Just weren't on set at the same time.
               ▪ Awesome joke between Nakai/kouhai was the New Year's money that Nakai supposedly gave.
               ▪ Kitayama was the only one that got 1000 yen though. XD
               ▪ Nakai asks Yamapi and Maeda if their characters are going to fall in love. Maeda and Yamapi's faces are the best.
               ▪ They still favor the front three of Kis-My-Ft2--through their food. The hell?
               ▪ SMAP's performance was 32 minutes of sheer awesome--plus their song choices were so varied that 2/3rds are songs that the casual fan has probably not heard before.
               ▪ SMAP has a lot of fun talking and interacting with the male SMAP fans.
               ▪ We love seeing AKB48 and SMAP interact. They are SO fun together~
               ▪ SMAP's hijinks with Tsuyoshi during the sake portion were hysterical! ♥
