Shonen Club Cuts of episode 2012/01/06 .

All videos are 1024 x 576 res, Avi, all on Mediafire. Thanks for FS to Kamichan. Since my neck and my back are feeling like as if several Juniors had practised their dance steps on it, I'll keep some of the descriptions short.

Intro

Intro is a medley of "Ultra Music Power" (fronted by Arioka Daiki, Takaki Yuya and Nakajima Yuto) and "Yuuki 100%" (fronted by NYC) with TOY, Sexy Zone, Hip Hop Jump, Noon Boyz and other Juniors backing up. Nothing extraordinary, but you could not do anything wrong opening a show with these two songs. Good starter.

Intro Talk

Intro Talk and announcement of the episodes theme (Challenges for the new year) with the classic Shonen Jumpers Daiki/Yuya/Yuto, special guests NYC and..Marius Yo.

Challenge Medley

The "Challenge Medley" and the definite highlight of this episode for several reasons. It starts with "With you" performed by Sato Shori, Matsushima Sou and Marius Yo with members of JaPAnese Hi! (featuring Jinguji Yuta constantly trying to wink at the camera), then Tanaka Juri performed a bit petty sounding rap part that linked to the "Belive" performance of Shori with Hip Hop Jump. Yes, Hip Hop Jump! So they are still there (with Morohoshi Shoki and Kadoi Kento) That's a kind of relief, to me at least.

The next part is "Marui Chikara" wich is one of my all-time favourite Johnnys songs, performed by some of my present-day favourite Johnnys boys (Matsushima Sou,Marius Yo, Kuramoto Kaoru ,Jinguji Yuta ,Nakamura Reia and to shorten it up a few others you can see in here). Yuta wasn't done winking at every camera during "With you" yet , so he continues his works here. TOY (without Taiga but with Yasui Kentaro back on the mic!) performed "Garasu no jidai" (also featuring the dancing skills of Morita Myuto) and Kis-my-Ft2 are closing the medley with "Everybody go!". Great medley!

Kis-my-Venus

Awful song-title, but the song itself is kind of nice, not a smash hit but yeah..well..nice. The performance was also quite good. If you loved "Everybody go!" and "We never give up" you will like this song as well, I guess.
Download : MF

Medley

Medley by A.B.C-Z and Question?. A very good one, altough the vocals at the beginning of the first song ("T2") are sounding somewhat..bumpy. After "T2" a instrumental/dance part follows before Totsuka Shota picks up his guitar for a (bit too short) version of the beautiful "Hajimari no Oto". "Naked" closes the medley. As said, very good one!
Download: MF

Next up was the A.B.C-Z wo Abake. No cut. I'm a fan of A.B.C-Zs performances, but I'm not fan enough to find it very exciting to watch them sitting in line with masks on and hear them talking in high-pitched voices about wich member they would date if they were a girl (or something like that). You can find this in other places for sure (even subbed).

Talk

Talk with Daiki,Yuya and Yuto with special guests NYC. Yamada explains that the concept of "Wonderful cupid" is "Inu". I was sure I missed the point of this remark, but just because I wasn't able to listen to the lyrics of the song closeley before. Because I instantly start yawning when I hear it. That's not a joke, I really do. So obviousley "Wonderful cupid" works as a lullaby, but I'm not sure if this was the intention of the song. Guess not. During the talk Chinen shows how to form a dog with both hands, wich looked at first (especially in connection with the look on his face) as if he was giving a demonstration of how to form occult handsigns to first time attenders of a Black Metal concert. This impression evaporated as soon as he started to "walk" the dog, that is.

Wonderful cupid

I already wrote about the song above (it's almost scary..just thinking of it makes me yawn right now), so this is only about the performance, not the song itself: It reminded me a lot of "Maru Maru Mori Mori" by Kaoru to Tomiki, Tamani Mook. The big problem about this is: When six year olds performing such a choreo, it is cute. If thirteen year olds are performing that way it's already kind of embarrassing, especially for themselves. But if eighteen year olds are doing this it is just bizarre and from their point of view kind of humiliating, I guess. Especially (and that's the decisive point) when there  even the most subtle hint of irony is missing. Make yourself ready for a big bag of vicarious embarrassemt if you're going to watch that. You have been warned. Grotesque.

Jr. ni Q

The Jr. ni Q is back again (The last one was from the first episode in October last year). In the meantime presenters Yuto and Yuya were hard working in the "How to form a Q"-training camp.....not! On the board: Kyomoto Taiga, Kishi Yuta, Iwahashi Genki (never heard of him before, I have to admit), Jinguji Yuta (Yay!!), Casey Anderson and Jesse Lewis. Nice!
Download : MF

Sexy Zone

During the announcement of the song Yuya was trying to do Shoris "Sexy Rose"...judge yourself (it is included in this file). What follows is the most unfulfilling performance of "Sexy Zone" up to date. Wich isn't to blame on Sou, Shori, Marius or Kento. Because of the absence of Kikuchi Fuma ( who was suspended because of consuming rose petals openly on stage)* there was a gap in the choreo that made the performance look incomplete and a bit of inharmonic. I really expect something better from the choreographers of Shonen Club, at least I expect them to come up with something other than to just leave a choreo completley unchanged when there is one of the key-players missing.

Ending  (Talk + Performance)

Ending talk with Daiki, Yuya and Yuto and with Morita Myuto standing decoratively in the back. It's rare enough to see him standing still for a moment so here is the chance. By the way if someone missed Matsumura Hokuto during this episode youn catch him here too, chatting with Tanaka Juri. In fact he was in the opening, too, but barely visible. Ending song is "Bouken rider" performed by all of the people mentioned above and various other Juniors like Taiga, Yasui, Kento and others. A.B.C-Z, NYC and Kis-my-Ft2 are joining in. Nice ending (to me mostly because of Myutos dancing I have to admit. But that should not trouble you).
Download : MF

So, nice starter for the Shonen Club episodes this year. Nice to see Hip Hop Jump are still there and nice to see Yasui is still allowed to sing. Personally I just missed Watanabe Haruki and (of course) Kouchi Yugo.



*In fact he was just busy with some exam stuff, I don't know the details. By the way, the absence of Kouchi Yugo had similar reasons, he was busy with entrance exams for university. As far as I know, he passed. Congratulations!!  But now come back on stage, please!

You're very welcome. And congratultions to your unique taste, you're the first one I met who actually liked this particular presentation of NYC..^^

Thanks for the clips!

There was a lot in this episode that I could've done without. It's been a long time since I've skipped a performance and Wonderful Cupid managed to break that record. I might've stuck it out if there had been juniors in the backgroud, but the choreography isn't one I'd want to see my favs dancing to either so I guess it worked out.

I like Kishimoto Shintaro's new haircut. Very manly. He needs to participate in a photoshoot soon so that haircut doesn't go to waste.

It makes me happy to see Myuto getting attention for his dance. I think I've watched Garasu no Jidai in slow-mo 100 times already (exaggerating) but something felt missing without Haruki. Both him and Yugo need to come back to SC pronto.

Hope you feel better soon and the juniors find a more appropriate place to practise ^^
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 11th, 2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
Hope you feel better soon and the juniors find a more appropriate place to practise
Thank you! If only the reason would have been the Juniors for real..that way I could have accept the pain more readily, I guess.^^

I hope Haruki and Yugo will be back in the February episodes. If not Myuto will have to do a three-minute-dance solo to compensate or I will be really sad.
By the way where does your new Avatar picture comes from? Looks really good!

Thank you for sharing :D
about NYC I prefer the previous single to these ._______.
I think that is too embarrassing the dance and song >< apart from that I cannot hear it because I sleep!!
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 11th, 2012 11:22 pm (UTC)
I totally agree!

Oh man also wenn wir alle WonCupi schon extrem langweilig und peinlich finden, dann stelle ich mir vor wie die 3 Jungs sich erst fühlen müssen, denn die sind es ja auch die es am Ende performen müssen. Als ich diese Choreographie zum ersten Mal gesehen habe wusste ich nicht ob ich weinen oder lachen sollte.
Das Lied, Choreo und PV, alles ist einfach nur schrecklich.
Die armen Jungs tun mir Leid und genau, die sind schon 18 !!!
Und Johnny-san findet dieses Lied toll oder was?! Derjenige, der dieses Lied ausgesucht hat sollte gefeuert werden!
Ich freue mich aber auf Freitag wo Yuma sein Solo Lied performen wird.

Koichi hat die Aufnahmeprüfung für eine Uni bestanden? Wow,das ist toll ! Wie schnell die Zeit vergeht, vor Kurzem war er doch noch im ersten Jahr der Highschool und jetzt schon Abschluss..

Ich frage mich, wenn Ebi debutiert, werden die weiterhin regulär in SC auftreten? Ich hoffe, dass zumindest Kisumai weiter vorangeht und nicht jedes Mal bei SC sein müssen. Die sind doch keine Juniors mehr!

yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 11th, 2012 11:32 pm (UTC)
Ich finde das Lied als soches gar nicht so schrecklich..nur halt extrem einschläfernd.. Und ich kann mir nicht vorstellen das die Jungs die Art wie sie es vortragen müssen gut finden. Wie gesagt ziemlich peinlich sich so präsentieren zu müssen. Yumas Solo Lied hat da ganz andere Qualitäten. Hoffentlich muß er dazu nicht auch so albern rumturnen wie für "Wonderful Cupid". Aber ich denke mal nicht.
Ich wundere mich auch ein bißchen darüber das Kis-my-Ft2 nach wie vor Shonen Club Inventar sind. Ich hatte eigentlich erwartet, daß sie nach ihrem Debüt nur noch sporadisch als "Special Guests" erscheinen würden. Bei Ebi bin ich mir hingegen fast sicher, daß sie SC-Bestandteil bleiben. Irgendwie scheint mir dieses DVD-Debüt nur eine halbgare Sache zu sein nachdem ich erfahren habe, daß es nur eine DVD-Single sein wird (PV + ein paar Schnipsel vom ersten Konzert). Als die DVD angekündigt wurde ging ich davon aus das es sich um die komplette Konzert-DVD handeln würde. Dies ist aber entäuschenderweise nicht der Fall.

I'm waiting to file SC.
Fuma not here ~ T T

yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 12th, 2012 06:48 pm (UTC)
I do, too. I hope he will be back in February. It's about time.

vanillachiivanillachii on January 12th, 2012 01:01 am (UTC)
I'm confused.
"and nice to see Yasui is still allowed to sing"/quote

Is YasuKen not allowed? Or what happened? I really don't have an idea. All I know is that he's absent the past few days, I missed him. T_T good thing he's back now!

And thanks for sharing :)
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 12th, 2012 06:47 pm (UTC)
I just wrote that because it annoyed me very much that Yasui was reduced to being a backdancer only in the performances in late 2011 and suddenly not even did backingvocals anymore (not to speak of solo lines)despite the fact that he has one of the best singing voices among the Juniors.

do you hear about ryutaro won't come to entertainment business after this? and who's noon boyz?
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 12th, 2012 06:59 pm (UTC)
Yes, and I also heard that Ryutaro has said that he isn't really fancy coming back himself. But that was of course not an official statement.

Noon Boyz is the new unit name of Sanada Yuma and Nozawa Yuki.

Second round for daiki, yuuto, takaki + nyc. I approve.

Also, congratulations Yuugo! ;A; Favorite junior ever ♥ Whatever happened to his /fractured collarbones/ I wonder... :s

Anyway, thank you, as always for sharing! :D
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 12th, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC)
His collarbone should be okay now, I guess. Usually it takes about three months to completley recover from such an injury. I hope this means we will finally see him again in Februarys SC episodes. It's about time for sure!

Thank you so much for always sharing, I love Jr. ni Q this part really nice ^^
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 13th, 2012 09:21 pm (UTC)
I'm very glad that the regular Jr. ni Q is back. I like the Kansai Jr. ni Q parts, too but I missed the "regular" ones.
seaukunseaukun on January 12th, 2012 12:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks a lot.
I glad to see hiphop jump with kadoi and Shokikun. I worry about this group. Don't change please.
But I am happy to watch Jr.ni Q with Yutakun. He is so cute and enthusiastic. Haha I love him. :)

Thank you again for shounen ku-ra-bu. :))))
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on January 12th, 2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
I still have some worries about HipHop Jump, but I was really happy to see them together in this episode! As you do, I also hope they are staying the way they are now.
