▪ Also, supposedly, Akanishi is being made to pay the cancellation costs himself.
▪ The concert (5 city, 7 domes) was never officially announced before its cancellation but the venues were booked.
▪ Announced in official circles, it appears this isn’t a rumour.
▪ However there is speculation that these actions are all for show so Johnny shows he’s in control.

▪ But, does this mean Johnny is temporarily suspending his activities in Japan? :x

▪ Senga received an email from someone giving their new address even though he never exchanged email addresses with this person.
▪ Talked about Secret Event. Apparently they found out the DAY BEFORE about this event.
▪ Apparently Johnny doesn’t only tell his talents about their DEBUTS a day before, he also plans his events that way.
▪ Kitayama was on the ocean (?) when he found out.
▪ Couldn’t JE let them know beforehand?!
▪ Makes you respect JE boys more knowing this.
▪ 5 out of 7 still live at home. Their parents even cook meals, do their laundry and wait up for them. Awww!! XD
▪ Performance was of Everybody Go. Was good but not special.
▪ Why not perform newer song from album?
▪ Music Japan, March 25 [ 1 ]
▪ Performed SHE!HER!HER! and joined in cooking corner (again).
▪ Cooking corner focused on cooking with herbs.
▪ Some would be sitting eating and then rest standing in back.
▪ Cutest part was when the front ones started sharing their food with the ones in the back.
▪ AWWW!! They’re a family. They’re sharing their food together XD
▪ Kis-My-1st album and DVD stuff [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ]
▪ CD 1: New songs, CD: old songs, DVD was history, PVs (Inori and Fire Beat) and makings
▪ Inori PV didn’t do the song justice. Sitting, boring, looking like dead fish.
▪ Favourite part was when they focus on Kitayama and Fujigaya when they clench their fists. Real emotion. Kyun.
▪ Fujigaya owns the couch. Like a boss.
▪ Fire Beat PV was cool… CG fire and effects. But not as good as when in concert.
▪ Very KAT-TUN feel with this PV. A lot of dancing.
▪ PV Making was fun and cute. Two PVs were shot one after the other.
▪ History portion on DVD has them talking about debut and their history, plus footage from the concert when their debut was announced.
▪ Album was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
▪ Has a super KAT-TUN vibe to it (debut-KAT-TUN)
▪ ‘Love meee’ has a current-Jin feel.
▪ ‘Take me’ sounds like you can almost hear Kame and Koki’s voices.
▪ Sound switches between rock, contemporary, ballads and typical JE fare.
▪ ‘Girl is mine’, ‘Catch & Go!!’, ‘Love meee’ are our favourite songs.
▪ Watch out Arashi! Melissa might make Kis-My-Ft2 her ichiban!
▪ From Disc 2 (old songs) to Disc 1 (new songs), you can definitely see the difference in their old and new sound.
