My Dreams For Hey! Say! BEST…Someday…

Hey! Say! BEST White

So this post is kinda taking a similar vibe to my rant about the future of Hey! Say! JUMP except the focus is on Hey! Say! JUMP. Really I just wanted to use this picture and thought it would be time now.

Yabu Kota: Well,Β I gotta Yabu has done pretty well in my eyes. I mean, he has various solos, he’s gotten TV time and has sizeable parts on all the Hey! Say! JUMP songs. He’s in a new drama, Ninkyo Helper, and his stage play will be happening soon, going to his birthday. He’s done very well for himself and Johnny sees that amazing quality in him, letting us all bask in it. I don’t really have any complaints. His hair looks really good in the picture above so I would love for him to go back to this style or just have his hair go completely dark. Also more sexiness like Suriru please.

Yaotome Hikaru: Well Hikaru is getting a nice slice of attention as well. He was on School Kakumei and he’s going to be in a new drama with Ryo and Tackey. Things are going nicely for him. Like Yabu, I would like to see his hair go back to its dark color. Anyway, yeah, I don’t have any complaints for him either.

Takaki Yuya: Well I really can’t complain about Takaki either. Gokusen was enough to boost his popularity like it did and he definitely gets his moments on Hey! Say! JUMP. He even got a B-side all to himself. The one thing that I will say is that someone needs to be on hair watch. Takaki’s hair can jump from looking hot to…not quite rapidly these days. Yeah…that would be nice.

Inoo Kei: Okay. Now it’s time to complain. I don’t know what it’s gonna take to get this boy the attention he deserves. He’s smart and now he’s attending Meiji University so his plate is already full but he should still get to new and exciting things. He didn’t have any drama time…oh wait a minute. He was in that one episode in Gachibaka when he was a kid…ooh! He doesn’t have any solos…he barely gets solo parts on group songs…he has a good voice so I don’t know why Johnny isn’t showcasing what this boy can do. Basically, he looks awesome in all the JE magazines (Myojo, Duet, Popolo, etc.) so at least he’s showing off that model attention. So like Yabu, more sexiness from Kei please because he can definitely bring it! Now, what I want for Kei-chan is his own solo song [something either hot or with him playing the piano in a beautiful ballad], him to have solo parts on group songs [he can totally handle it] and just overall more shine for him. PLEASE Johnny!!

Arioka Daiki: Just like Kei-chan, I love Dai-chan and he needs more attention to. Okay, he had his moments on Sensei wa Erai! and Scrap Teacher but still…Yamada was the star of the three new kids and Chinen got his own episode…and what did Daiki get? Nothing. LAME! So basically this cutie needs to get more attention but really needs to get the spotlight when he does get attention. It makes me really happy that he has his own solo song on the new tour and I hope I can hear it soon! So more hotness for Dai-chan too? That would make me a very happy fan.

In conclusion, MORE Dai-chan and Kei-chan. Why? Because they’re amazing and who wouldn’t love more of this?



  1. yeah poor kei. i mean atleast ryutaro and keito get ignored together but kei seems to be all by himself. hopefully one day he can get a solo or even a solo line that he doesn’t have to share with daiki or yabu.

    • I hope so…he really deserves it because he has a good voice.
      And you’re right, I mean sometimes it’s him and Dai-chan but not always and then how does he feel 😦
      Oh Johnny…

      • i often wonder how idols feel. i mean they don’t have as much control over their image and actions as regular artists so i wonder do they get to voice their opinions about wanting lines and screen time.

        actually and i hate to keep bring up hello project lol but when resonant blue came out she publicly asked tsunku to stop giving her lines to scream in english and give her actual lines to sing and after that she’s had a solo in every song.

  2. That picture is so awesome! I wish I could just get a poster of that…(:

    Daiki isn’t getting enough attention (BTW, YESSS, solo song!! I can’t wait to hear it!! Gambatte, Daiki-kun!!), but it’s more than enough for me because of Kei! ): I mean how hard is it to let him sing a line? He’s a great singer!! I mean, during J.J Express he got so much attention, and now that he’s in HSJ…[sigh].
    At least we know he’s going to get some attention soon ;D cause in Endless Dreams, he got a duet line with Yuto, right? So he probably will…!

    And man, do you sleep? You upload so much~! (Not that I’m complaining xD)

  3. Yeah…there’s always the downside of all the good stuff. I don’t really know if they’re opinions are heard that much…probably the older ones like SMAP and TOKIO get that privelege but the younger ones…I doubt it. But I guess they know what they’re getting into when they join and know that they might not be able to get the spotlight they want…they just gotta hope by hard work and time, they get it…and sometimes they don’t 😦

    Oh no it’s an interesting parallel πŸ™‚
    You mean Sayumi?
    That’s pretty gutsy of her. I’ve heard a lot of people say she’s not the best singer and I can see what they mean…compared to the other girls. But I’m glad that she’s gotten her way and she even got a solo on Platinum 9 Disc [which I love!!].

    • yeah sayumi! sorry i thought i put her name.

      but yeah it was totally gutsy but it worked because she’s been getting solo lines. and sayumi has improved a whole lot. she used to be almost totally tone deaf but not she pretty much sings in key and everything.

      • it’s okay πŸ™‚

        yeah, she’s getting better although she still some ways to go…although everyone can improve πŸ™‚
        The studio version of It’s You is awesome but when I heard it live on their latest tour…I kinda cringed at parts 😦

        Comment by amaiyume — July 24, 2009 @ 4:29 am

  4. yeah but atleast she sings live now which i prefer to painfully listen to her live than for her to just fake it which is what she used to have to do. tsunku is actually notorious in his OWN fandom for picking girls that cannot sing and dance and in general are bad idols. the exception being the 1st generation of morning musume but back than they were more a singing group than idol group.

    • That’s true. I don’t really like it when people fake lives but…I think she and Koharu did on the latest performance of Nanchatte Renai 😦

      But I would say he’s picked a good batch this time around πŸ™‚

  5. i think we found out also around the time resonant blue came out that koharu mostly doesn’t sing live. some mic recordings came out and she was whispering but that’s not what came out of the speakers. and in television performances usually only reina and ai sing live, maybe risa and eri. NEVER anyone else.

    tsunku has an amazing eye for potential. konna asami is a very good example of that. so is tsuji nozomi.

    • That is sad. I don’t think Koharu and Sayumi are bad singers…I dunno…they have their moments.
      Yeah, those four sing live which I love.
      The other three don’t have to worry about it since they hardly ever have solo parts XD

      • what’s really terrible is if you listen to koharu in iroppoi she sounds really really good. and than she got a solo career as kirarin and it went downhill since than. but not that it’s ended i think tsunku is trying to get her to her original voice which was much better than where she is now. sayumi just needs to become a better technically singer, she had the same problem rika had when she first joined but eventually especially towards the end of her time rika was a decent sing. she just had an annoying voice.

        yeah 8th gen doesn’t have much to worry about although at first aika was getting a solo line a single. linlin sings well live though and junjun is hit and miss.

        Comment by brandon — July 24, 2009 @ 7:23 am

  6. Koharu sounds good in some songs. I actually really liked her in Nanchatte Renai and she sounded good in Gamusharara…

    Sayu could be better but she sounds good in some songs [It’s You, Shougnai Yume Oibito]

    Aika has her own solo and sounded good there πŸ™‚
    Linlin sounds nice although I don’t think her voice is the best
    Junjun sounds good in SONGS…but she needs more chances to sing so I can really hear more

  7. koharu really did sound good in gamusharara but i’m really not objective on that because it’s such an awesome song that i can’t say anything bad about it. yeah sayumi just needs time to improve. she’s been in morning musume for years and just started singing so i don’t really fault her.

    i also don’t like linlins voice sometimes. a little at a time i love it but she really sings like she has something in her throat. technically she’s amazing though especially for a haropro girl.

    yeah junjun is a somewhat unreliable vocalist lol. sometimes she sounds amazing like in onna ni sachi are and sometimes she sounds not so good. like in guru guru jump -_-

    • I agree. I love that song to death. It’s too awesome for words. I wish it was an A-side 😦
      And I think Sayumi will improve. She’s definitely doing good so far though with the occasional miss but everyone has their misses sometimes…

      Yeah, I agree with you. I didn’t like it much at first but I’ve grown to like it. Especially when she’s talking. And I like her singing as well although I don’t think it’s as fantastic as everyone says.

      LOL, I totally ignore GURU GURU JUMP. I have the album and like 7 songs I play daily and the other 5 I never play. I’ve had the album for almost a month now and have played SONGS over 110 times while playing GURU GURU JUMP 0 times XD

  8. songs really is an amazing song. it’s this generations genki+.

    she’s not a super amazing singer but by hello project standards she’s better than most. but she’s not my favorite vocalist by any means.

    but yeah guru guru jump…i just don’t know what happened lol.

  9. Agreed!! It was the primary reason I bought Platinum 9 DISC! I just love it to death!! I wish the choreography for it was more aggressive and intricate but hey, I can invent my own…

    Oh, well she’s good and that’s all that counts πŸ™‚

    haha, a little coo cutesy for my taste XD

  10. that might be it. or it could be that terrible mental image i have of those hat dresses they wore when they sung it that one time.

    • hahaha I remember those…not the best choice XD

      Comment by amaiyume — July 24, 2009 @ 11:02 am | Reply

      • really i want to know who signed off on those. because they’re getting a good swift kick.

        Comment by brandon — July 24, 2009 @ 11:37 am

  11. LOL sometimes H!P fashion…kinda like JE fashion in being really weird sometimes. But very awesome sometimes.

    Comment by amaiyume — July 24, 2009 @ 6:32 pm | Reply

    • most of the problems i have with H!P outfits are those stupid hats they put on the girls. it’s like…what the eff. almost every costume they have needs to take two steps back and then they’d be fine.

      Comment by brandon — July 24, 2009 @ 7:43 pm | Reply

      • hahaha, LOL just take a step back and look what you’re putting on them guys XD
        Not that you mention it, there are a lot of hats…I never really noticed it before. In the Nanchatte Renai covers, the live performance of SONGS…hmm…

        Comment by amaiyume — July 24, 2009 @ 8:13 pm

  12. and that’s recent by the way. like when ongaku gatas performed at the elder club graduation thing they had those badass outfits from the pv…plus little hats. like why add the hats? who wants them?

    Comment by brandon — July 24, 2009 @ 9:10 pm | Reply

    • LOL, I didn’t watch that since I only pay attention to like the head groups [not in the Elder Club] but that sounds tragically funny XD

      Comment by amaiyume — July 24, 2009 @ 10:19 pm | Reply

  13. it was upsetting for me because i loved ongaku gatas lol

    Comment by brandon — July 25, 2009 @ 2:50 am | Reply

    • Aww, I’m sorry 😦
      I don’t know who they are but a lot of people were sad to hear they were gone…
