▪ Did Tokei Jikake no Umbrella make it?? Ooohh! THE SUSPENSE!!

▪ Interesting that Energy Song, which was only on Seven-net edition, is so high

▪ Tape of some episode scenes was lost
▪ Once it was discovered, the lost scenes were then re-shot by Yamapi and Shingo

▪ Kitayama: After Jrs heard this, we all rushed to remove our accessories.
▪ Koichi thought Nakai was nice for giving clothes from his dressing room, but they were all uncool ones
▪ Koichi pretended to like them, Nakai left, came back and the clothes were all still there
▪ Koichi and Kitayama apparently don’t talk
▪ Koichi tried to stop a taxi for Nakai, couldn’t, and got kicked in the butt. (Have we heard this before?)
▪ Good-looking quiz – Kitayama lost last time against Gekidan Hitori (OUCH! >.< )
▪ He blamed it on picture so they sent in new pic but don’t see difference
▪ Nakai: “Our job as Johnny’s is to be ikemen, you know!” Koichi: *laughs* “I’ve never said that”
▪ Nakai doesn’t vote for Kitayama in revenge match XDD But Koichi does (nice sempai)
▪ Kitayama loses to Watabe (Anjashu comedian) by 4 points!!!
▪ Kitayama: “What if I wear a suit?” Nakai: "Got it. I’ll take the picture for you. A picture that will appeal to all ages."
