No presents for Christmas


Shonen Club Cuts 2011/12/09 (Christmas episode) and then some..
All videos are 1024 x 576 res., Avi, all on Mediafire. Credits for FS to shokura@lj.

Opening

Arioka Daiki, Yamada Ryosuke and Yaotome Hikaru are greeting the audience and announce the episodes theme "Merry Christmas". What follows is a medley of "We wish you a merry Christmas" by Totsuka Shota with JaPAnese Hi!, "Santa Claus is coming to town" by Tsukada Ryoichi and Goseki Koichi with Hagiya Keigo, Matsumura Hokuto, Jesse Lewis, Kanzawa Akatsuki and Noon Boyz (Sanada + Nozawa), "Hiiragi Kazarou" by Kawai Fumito with Tanaka Juri, Kadoi Kento, Morimoto Shintaro, Casey Anderson and Kyomoto Taiga and "Yuki ga Futte Kita" started by Hashimoto Ryosuke with Sanada Yuma and Nozawa Yuki from the balcony and ended by everyone mentioned above except JaPAnese Hi! . Quite nice, but don't let the namedropping fool you: Except for the A.B.C-Z members all the people mentioned above are more or less just backing up. And despite the choice of songs I'm not really solemnized after the performance for whatever reason.

Intro Talk

Introtalk with Arioka, Yamada and Hikaru with Sexy ZoneMarius Yo, Sato Shori and Matsushima Sou about Christmas, including Marius telling about Christmas time in Germany.

I can't get enough of these guys.

Sexy Zone Medley

Medley of "Sexy Zone", "With You" and "Knock!Knock!!Knock!!!" by Sexy Zone. Really nice!! And obviously Sou decided to match his dancing moves to the groups name in this. Only complaint I have is that they didn't threw away the roses after the first part. Wich is a very small complaint.

Excursus : Knock!Knock!!Knock!!!
 
Since "Knock!Knock!!Knock!!!" is just too good to be wasted away just as a short medley part, here is the full version in a very nice performance from last weeks Johnny's Jr. land (same resolution as the Shonen Club videos).  Highly recommended!

Back to Shonen Club: Talk part with Daiki, Yamada and Hikaru about Christmas (and about Okamoto Keito).

A.B.C-Z Medley

Medley by A.B.C-Z of "Crazy Accel" and "A to Z". First part just A.B.C-Z, during the second part Watanabe Haruki, the remains of Mis Snow Man and other Juniors are backing up. Very good performance. It is understandable that this group doesn't debut with a CD but with a DVD (in February next year), because their strong points aren't the songs but these really original choreographies and their awesome dancing and acrobatic skills.

Talk

Talk part of Daiki, Yamada and Hikaru with Kis-my-Ft2. And because it's Christmas even Miyata Toshiya is allowed to speak a few words!

We never give up!

Kis-my-Ft2 performing "We never give up!" , wich will hit the stores in a few days (12/14). A bit diffrent from the performance last week, e.g. without rollerskates. Apart from that I have nothing to add about the song than what I wrote last week.

Colosseum/Nekketsu Battle

The game is "Munekyun Senshuken Christmas special" with Uchi Hiroki as judge and Daiki,Hikaru and Yamada as MCs (Yamada also as participant). Besides Yamada, Kawai Fumito, Fujigaya Taisuke, Tamamori Yuta and Igo Akun are the challengers. In diffrence to the previous Munekyun Senshuken parts this time there are no semifinals and the challengers are entering the stage one after another for a single performance. Not the brightest idea, because that lessened the amusement value considerably. Unlike some of the other Munekyun Senshuken parts, this one won't make it in the history book of Shonen Club.

Moonlight

Solo performance of "Moonlight" by Yamada Ryosuke. Morita Myuto, Yasui Kentaro and Tanaka Juri are among the backdancers. Not really bad, technically even very good, but it doesn't carries me along. I liked his solo in October much better.The performance reminds me a bit of that fairly successful 17-year-old Canadian guy. Maybe that's why I'm not too enthusiastic.

Do you remember this card? It belonged to Fujigaya Taisuke and he showed it to us in the episode "Dreams" of 08/05 (you can find this part here ) . Apparently his wish was fulfilled:

Fujigaya has his "own" corner on Shonen Club now! I'm not sure if Santa granted his wish just for one episode, but if I understood correctley this corner will be a recurring one. Taisukes first guests are Tanaka Juri and Kyomoto Taiga (not an uncommon constellation nowadays), wich is a very nice choice! I hope someone will sub this part, because I didn't get everything here..

Talk part with Uchi and Question? prior their performance.

Uchi & Question? Medley

I was looking forward to this performance very much, because I like the constellation Uchi/Question?. Well, I didn't knew they would perform a medley of "Yozora no Muko" and "Lion heart", because if I did I wouldn't have been dashed. The performance is absolutley okay and the songs are okay, too. They just don't fit to Question?/Uchi at all. It's not a secret that I don't think Question? are a ballad band but it gets even worse if it are SMAP-ballads. This just don't work for me. Maybe it will work better for you. I hope so.

Ending

The endstage reminds us again that this is actually the Christmas episode. Apart from the opening and the talk themes there wasn't a "Christmas feel" to me this year. But maybe that's just me, because I don't get very easily into Christmas mood in general. At least they finally performed my favourite Johnnys Christmas tune "Ding Dong" at the beginning (but way to short). Kikuchi Fuma and Nakajima Kento are the main performers. Next part is "Wish" by A.B.C-Z, who made very strange movements during the performance that made it look more like a comedy version, then "Another Christmas" by Kis-my-Ft2 with a nice looking "passage" of dancing Juniors and the ending is "Snow Song" by Hikaru, Daiki and Yamada including arifical snowing on the stage and extra digital snowing for the watchers on TV (wich didn't saved the "Christmas mood" to me). Question? and Juniors (including Haruki and Myuto) are backing up on all parts.

And finally just a note about Hip Hop Jump: They aren't in any of the January magazines (Duet, Potato, Wink up). Jesse Lewis and Hagiya Keigo have shootings with Matsumura Hokuto and Kanazawa Akatsuki, Tanaka Juri and Morimoto Shintaro have one shooting together, one with Kouchi Yugo and the preview for Johnnys Jr. Land January. Morohoshi Shoki and Kadoi Kento are nowhere to be seen. This could mean nothing, since there were months before were Hip Hop Jump wasn't featured in any magazine, but if you're a HHJ fan and want to panic, that's maybe the right point of time to do so.
