               ▪ As punishment for not informing Johnny about his wedding beforehand, Johnny is cancelling Akanishi’s Japan concerts.
               ▪ 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.
               ▪ At least Johnny didn’t cancel his American tour!
               ▪ But, does this mean Johnny is temporarily suspending his activities in Japan? :x
               ▪ Where will Jin go from here?

               ▪ Announced on the radio 30 minutes beforehand on March 21

               ▪ 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.

               ▪ Shori will be participating in 10k marathon in Hawaii.

               ▪ Governor jokes and tells the boys not to get punished like Akanishi.
               ▪ Umm, … awkward... >.>

               ▪ Julie, niece of Johnny and J-storm president invites Ohno, Aiba,
Maruyama, Nishikido, Taguchi along with people from the press.

a big fan.
               ▪ Are the boys being taken advantage of?
               ▪ Tokio's Nagase and Yamaguchi also showed up.

Cool beans! Thank you

an hour and twenty minutes on a relatively slow week?!!? MELISSA WE TALK TOO DAMN MUCH
04 06 12 (UTC)
It's because of the letter segment and opening segment. We REALLY chatted about those. XD

04 06 12 (UTC)
Of course. Gotta be true to the podcast. ;)

Rachael here~

If I had to choose just one, I would actually go back and keep Uchi and Kusano from drinking underage/getting caught with alcohol. I'm curious as to how NEWS and Kanjani8 would turn out if they hadn't gotten in trouble and were still a part of their groups.

If I could change one point in JE history I would keep Morimoto Ryutaro from smoking underage. As for why I just miss seeing him with the group even if he didn't get much spotlight. It's a shame he left around the time Hey! Say! JUMP's popularity started booming.
