WTF Johnny’s??!!!

All right, I hope you guys don’t mind complaining / ranting because that’s what this post is going to be about. I just watched Johnny’s Countdown 2008. The video above is the ONLY time Hey! Say! JUMP performed. Of course they performed Mayonaka no Shadow Boy but I couldn’t believe how short it was!! They sang the first verse, Yamada did his “shadow” and then ONE of the final two choruses (cutting the ending short too). All right, seriously!!!!  I can understand that they weren’t going to perform the whole song because I don’t think anybody played their whole song but at least other groups got to sing MORE THAN ONE song. NEWS sang Taiyou no Namida, SUMMER TIME and Happy Birthday. Arashi sang like A MILLION SONGS!!! So Hey! Say! JUMP gets stuck with that like 1 minute section??? Are you kidding me with this Johnny’s?? That made me really mad! I mean what’s going on? They were pretty successful this year if I do say so myself so how are they gonna pull this crap?? Okay…Arashi was the most successful JE group of the year (there’s just no debating that) but Hey! Say! JUMP got more success than some of those groups and still only got that tiny little section. OMG!!!! It was a good performance for what it was worth though with all the boys looking great and their vocals strong too. Ya know, I’m not much a fan of the little head movement Yamada does on his “socchi jya nai cherii” but oh well. And I still don’t understand why Daiki is like on his knees during most of that part. Whatever, I liked the performance and it was good so…And then they were saying goodbye to all the groups at the end I’m guessing and I DIDN’T SEE Hey! Say! JUMP THERE!!! That countdown was soooo annoying.

Okay second complaint. WHERE IS A FRICKIN ALBUM JE!!! So now we have a total of 5 A-sides for this album (WHENEVER THAT COMES OUT!!): Ultra Music Power, Dreams come true, Your Seed, Bouken Rider and Mayonaka no Shadow Boy…that is more than enough singles for an album. And they can’t be pulling the whole “we’re waiting for a hit single” crap because Mayonaka no Shadow Boy is their 2nd best selling single…SO WHAT THE HELL??!!! Well if they wanted a January release, it would have already been announced by now so now we have February and March. As I remember, Mayonaka no Shadow Boy was announced around a month before its release so it can still be released in February. But ya know, at this point, it makes me mad that nothing has been announced. Arashi has their new single “Believe” set and another song “Away” just got announced. KAT-TUN has the same situation with “One Drop” and “Tactics.” NEWS has a new song called “Share.” Just where is the Hey! Say! JUMP news?? Anything!!! Anything at all! They recored a song or they’re in the studio or…I dunno. ANYTHING! Are you guys kidding me with this crap???!!! ANNOUNCE AN ALBUM NOW! I’m getting really impatient and I’m sure man other people are too!

Final complaint: MORE INOO KEI!!!! Ya know, he needs more attention!!! I actually love all the front-runners right now and I’m glad that they are getting the attention they deserve but hey, other people need love too!! Like in Mayonaka no Shadow Boy. Don’t stick him with those little parts…I wanted him to at least get a solo line. In fact, everyone should have gotten a solo line…but right now, I’m focusing on Kei. I at least wanted him to get Hikaru’s part and sing with Yabu and Takaki too….ahhh, Johnny’s makes me mad sometimes.

Well this has been a rant post but I’m sure a lot of you are feeling the same way (I guess more about 2 and 3 more than 1). So JE…give them something to release. SOMETHING! ANYTHING! And I’m not talking about a calendar…(which I did pre-order by the way).



  1. the MNSB perf was actually pre-recorded…so technically they didn’t perform live during the countdown
    and they aired it 2:45 minutes before midnight
    I think in japan they don’t allow underage kids to work beyond 12am
    well that’s what I heard…but I’m not too sure
    that’s why the boys were there just sitting as audience
    but don’t worry….their time to shine is coming~

    yeah….almost all the JUMP fans that I know are getting impatient with that album
    I can’t imagine them releasing another single
    let us cross our fingers~
    hopefully they’ll release an album by the first quarter…and then another concert….and con goods…and DVD con(which doesn’t have 12784623486 versions of UMP BTW)

  3. Oh okay, that makes sense about not staying up so late….still though. They could have performed more than just Mayonaka no Shadow Boy…

    Seriously!!! If they don’t put out an album in February/March, I am gonna be PISSED!!! It’s just getting too long. I’ll even be fine with an announcement in February and a release in April. I just wanna know one is coming…

    Another DVD would be nice too but hopefully they can wait on that so I’ll have enough money XD

  4. yeah…I was also disappointed when they performed a super edited version of MNSB…they could have at least sang DCT/Your Seed/MNSB medley~
    I understand Arashi singing a million songs cos’ it’s their 10th year anniversary this year…..and being a huge arashi fanboy as I am…I must admit it’s pretty unfair for JUMP
    *threatens johnny with a plastic fork*
    we will never know what the old man is thinking right?
    well there’s always next year to look forward to….hopefully chinen would’ve grown taller by then..hahaha~
    *hugs & kisses*

  5. Yep yep yep!!!
    Arashi did have a humongous year this year but that are other people in the agency too you know Johhny’s. What about them?
    And next time, they should have an album out and I hope it sells a bazillion copies and they get to perform a bazillion songs [even if they’re only gonna be a minute long each].

    Feels good to rant to someone XD

  7. LOL i think it’s gonna be another 5 years until we see the whole of HSJ perform together at Johnny’s Countdown since they all have to be 18 [argh Ryutaro! why must you be so young!! hahaha]!! *tear* Johnny better compensate for this by releasing at least a few albums and DVDs!!!!!!!!! xDD

  9. yeah you’re right jomskie,
    that’s true that in Japan in Johnnys entertaiment i guess
    they don’t allow kids underaged perform beyond 12 am
    that’s why when it’s beyond am
    the member of HSJ that can still perform olny like
    yabu,yaotome,inoo and takaki
    the others just stay and sit down at the corner of the stage
    yeah it’s okay soon they’ll grow hihihi
