               ▪ Is Tamamori the ugliest girl ever?

               ▪ Talents who could not come (Kanjani8 and Arashi) sent videos

               ▪ Kimura was caught speeding in September and January
               ▪ Caught speeding in Chiba and Tokyo in a ‘regular automobile’ (what’s an irregular automobile?)
               ▪ Kimura apologizes and promised not to let it again
               ▪ Toyota refuses to stop running CMs with Kimura
               ▪ Why is Japan so strict with speeding? (It was only 20km over the speed limit!!)
               ▪ We do that all the time, what’s the big deal (Don’t tell our local police forces >.>)
               ▪ Glad that Toyota stuck by him (though Kimura’s apology is clearly a token one)
               ▪ Kimura’s licence was suspended (we’re not sure for how long…)
               ▪ Why are they announcing it now? Cause Shukan Bunshun dug up the dirt? (probably)

          ▪ Sakamoto to have a weekly cooking show [ 1 ]
               ▪ Kami drools over Sakamoto’s cooking
               ▪ Will have weekly cooking show on Fuji TV starting April 2
               ▪ Titled ‘Non-Stop’ and airs Monday through Friday with Sakamoto being on the Friday episodes
               ▪ Sakamoto’s family owns a grocery store and so he’s always been around food
               ▪ One day he hopes to own a restaurant (30x30 squared)
               ▪ The show will feature Sakamoto going out to buy the food
               ▪ Kami will be one of the fangirls going out to random grocery stores to stalk Sakamoto (if she lived in Japan)
               ▪ Sakamoto is now the perfect man XD

     Kinki Kids

               ▪ Song will used as departure music at 5 stations on the Kintetsu line
               ▪ En wo Yuite is a love song to Japan and will be used for one year
               ▪ Departure music? Does this mean it plays as the train leaves so no one will hear it cause they’re on the train??
               ▪ Tsuyoshi has been relegated to elevator music :P

          ▪ Arashi's colors to light up Tokyo Tower [ 1 ]
               ▪ Tokyo Tower was lit up on March 16 in the Arashi colours (purple, blue, yellow, red, and green)
               ▪ First time the tower has been lit up with 5 colours
               ▪ The last episode of Lucky Seven was filmed on March 16 and includes a shot of the lit-up Tokyo Tower
               ▪ Lighting up is part of Fuji TV’s month-long Hana Arashi campaign featuring six programs
               ▪ Nino: “First Tokyo Tower, next Aiba’s family home” XDD Aiba: “Stop it! You’ll cause problems for my neighbours”
               ▪ Melissa is secretly Aiba’s fiancée
               ▪ Tangent about Aiba’s family restaurant, Keikarou
               ▪ We talk about JE boys and their families’ businesses

     Arashi/Ikuta Toma
          ▪ Toma on Arashi ni Shiyagare, March 10 [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ]
               ▪ THE BEST Arashi ni Shiyagare EVER!!! XDDD
               ▪ Ikuta is risou no musuko (ideal son), Arashi: No. No, you’re not.
               ▪ Ikuta Toma is not aniki so instead of lessons, he just brings up dirt on Arashi and their Jr days (dirt fight!!)
               ▪ Ikuta entered Johnny’s in February 1996 so he’s actually Nino, Aiba and MatsuJun’s sempai
               ▪ ‘Densetsu Ohno’: Ohno was a legendary JE boy that boys would hear about
               ▪ Ohno spent a long time performing in Kyoto (5 times a day) in different shows and they heard how amazing he was at dancing and singing but rarely saw him
               ▪ Ohno ignores the choreographer who yells at him and picks his nose in front of the audience :P
               ▪ Sho used to be Mr. Style?!?
               ▪ Sho started all the trends: jersey, color contacts, perm, dreadlocks
               ▪ Now we know who to blame for the JE perm trend XD
               ▪ ‘Before his character was formed’, Aiba got mad at Jun and kicked him before the start of Stand By Me musical they were starring in along with Nino and Ikuta
               ▪ Both were injured (Aiba from the hammer, and Jun from the kick)
               ▪ The show was delayed by ten minutes
               ▪ Aiba used to only wear two shirts: ‘trainspotting’ shirt and the ‘ecchi gorilla’
               ▪ Ikuta: “It’s too ecchi for television” but the producers bring out anyways (or do they?)
               ▪ Nino punishing others backfires and he gets hit by a ‘baba chop’ (karate chop) (with a side of ‘uffun gorilla’ XDDD)
               ▪ This craziness makes us miss Arashi no Shukudai-kun
               ▪ Ikuta fails at transition to promotion for ‘Bokura ga Ita’ XD (TWICE!)

          ▪ Shige to get new radio show [ 1 ]
               ▪ Hosting along with Garage Sale’s Gori
               ▪ Every Sunday from 10:05pm
               ▪ Will be three hours long (or, at least, first ep will be)
               ▪ Starts April 7 at same time as third ep of Blackboard that stars Shige
               ▪ Titled ‘Shige Gori no wktk Radio Gakuen’
               ▪ YAY!! More work for Shige!!
               ▪ Will this mean more work for NEWS? (we're eternally hopeful)

          ▪ HSJ's First Asia Tour has some changes [ 1 ]
               ▪ Dates have changed in Hong Kong
               ▪ WAS March 24-25, NOW is May 26-27 at same location
               ▪ Cancellation of show in Bangkok
               ▪ No reasons stated (wonder why?)

          ▪ Kisumai gets a variety show! [ 1, 2, 3 ]
               ▪ To have new variety show on TV Asahi called ‘Hama Kis’

               ▪ Begins April 4 on TV Asahi on Wednesdays from 1:21-1:51am at night
               ▪ Kis-My-Ft2’s activities are really pumping up!
               ▪ Is the increase in work too quick? Will they get too busy and burn out?
               ▪ We hope this won’t backfire and, if they don’t get the ratings, that it may be the ‘kis’ of death XP

          ▪ Heyx3/Waratte Iitomo, March 12 [ 1 ]
               ▪ Downtown can’t remember the ‘backdancers’’ names (Poor Senga looks so lost)
               ▪ Kis-My-Ft2 members use their knowledge of SMAP’s Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana’s choreo in order to be popular at school :P
               ▪ Little Honda Miyu admits she’s a Fujigaya fan and she dances the steps to Everybody Go! with them
               ▪ Fujigaya is so good with Miyu-chan XDD (up he goes on the ‘to marry’ list)
               ▪ This quickly devolves into the Otaku Dance (initiated by Miyata, ofc)
               ▪ The performance of Everybody Go! and SHE!HER!HER! lacks the previous energy
               ▪ No backflips or rollerskates
               ▪ Made up by cute Miyu-chan performing the choreo in the audience XDDD
               ▪ We STILL don’t get why this song is named ‘SHE!HER!HER!’
               ▪ Melissa tries to make this make sense in her own mind… she’s not sure if she succeeds
               ▪ It’s the chorus in the song but we don’t know why…
               ▪ Good song? Bad song? We’re divided on this
               ▪ Talk segment was really fun
               ▪ Look forward to their variety show (Will Miyata be an ‘Aiba’ or a ‘Taguchi’?)

     Sexy Zone
          ▪ To have 2nd single [ 1, 2 ]
               ▪ To be released April 11

               ▪ RE will include 4 tracks including Yuuki 100% plus karaoke versions
               ▪ Will also include various bonus merchandise
               ▪ They’re announcing it before they even know the main track?! Why?
               ▪ One LE includes the PV and the other the making of with no difference in songs
               ▪ BLATANT grab for your money
               ▪ Beat JE by buying the two editions and share the cost and discs with a friend

          ▪ Oricon Charts [ 1, 2 ]

 L E T T E R / Q U E S T I O N

          ▪ This week's question (after a loooooooonnnngggg delay): What is your impression of V6's Yasei no Hana PV?
               ▪ 'Yasei no Hana' (The Wildflower) is a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics (but the PV makes no sense)
               ▪ V6 are ghosts in a dilapidated room with... chairs... and the room is yellow... or so we think
               ▪ They're in suits, then jerseys and then suits again... (it's Sho's fault for the jerseys!!)
               ▪ random flower
               ▪ Watch the PV for the randomness, enjoy it for the wonderful song
               ▪ Song has a feel of music from the 80/90s American music era
          ▪ Next week's question: If *insert random JE boy or host here* ran the world, what do you think would happen?

Songs used in this week's podcast are from
NYC's Wonderful Cupid single.

If Marius ran the world... every single country would have a Takarazuka Jimusho
If Yamada ran the world... strawberries would be grown and strawberries only and 5th of Jan would be Ichigo Day (coz January=ichi 5th=go)
