The fire still burns  

Shonen Club Cuts 02/03/2012.
All videos are 1024 x 576 res, all are on MF. Credit for FS to shokura@lj. After all the hubbub about MU the last few weeks there were lots of rumours going on about what will happen to Mediafire. Some of them (wich were also spread in some of the Johnny-releated fandom communitys) claimed Mediafire were the next in line and had already opened their servers for the FBI. I don't know who makes off such rumors for what reasons. Of course you can't be 100% sure of anything these days, but this rumour was total crap. For more information just go to the mediafire blog. The fire still burns.

Speaking of sharing files: You know you can do with my cuts whatever you want including re-sharing them. If you give me credit it's very nice and I'm happy about it, if you don't I won't die of grief.  But hot-linking is another thing. In diffrence to 95% of the people who are sharing stuff I'm total okay with you hot-linking these videos..if you tell me that you do, that is. You don't have to ask me for permission, you just need to tell me where you are sharing the links. Since they are leading directly in my own MF-account, that's not too much to ask for for me, no? The reason I'm bringing this up suddenley is that someone is hot-linking since the beginning of this year in a highly noticeable way. As said, I'm okay with it, but I want to know where my links are being used. Thank you.
I really don't want to start writing in red letters about this topic or to start locking files.

Now on to the show:


The show starts with a superb medley by special guests Hey!Say! JUMP. Consisting of: "Over" (HSJ), "Hitomi no Screen" (Yamada Ryosuke), "Aiing - Aishiteru" (Hey!Say! BEST), "Hey!Say!" (Hey!Say!7) and "Mayonaka no Shadow Boy" (HSJ). Great, all parts of it!  But I have to single out the "Aiing - Aishiteru" part. Not because of HSB, but because the three boys who were dancing behind them: Morimoto Shintaro, Tanaka Juri and (drumroll) Kouchi Yugo ! Yes, he is finally back on the stage of Shonen Club! He could already be seen on the so called live-stages on School Kakumei, but for whatever reasons they aren't the real deal to me. The fact that he gives his comeback performance together with Juri and Shintaro gives me an extra smile, and I know by reading some of the comments to the previous posts that I'm not the only one who would like to see this combination as often as possible in the future.

Intro-Talk/ Sexy Zone Medley

After a very short Intro-Talk with HSJ (included in file) Sexy Zone (with Kikuchi Fuma back in line) are performing a medley of "Sexy Zone", "Knock!Knock!!Knock!!!" and "I see the light". As good as always and now that they are complete again, the choreos are looking even better than in the January episodes. The only thing still bothering me are these roses...It's okay to have them for performances of "Sexy Zone", but they are not necessary for the other two songs. Why don't they just throw them into the audience after the song is over? They would love it (The audience). Or if its for me they could also just throw them away or eat them up or whatever...just get them out of your pretty faces, please!

Talk part with Arioka Daiki and Nakajima Yuto with Sexy Zone about Love songs (wich is the theme of the episode, by the way). Only Kento, Shori and Fuma are supposed to talk, but no one can put Sou into a "talk" segment and really expect him to keep his mouth shut, of course.

This episode is full of great performances (like the first two above), so I don't know if I should call this my highlight or not. It was in every case the most thrilling. Question? Medley with various Juniors, starting off with a very beutiful rendition of "Beautiful mind" by Question?. Next part is "Seiten no Heikireiki" with Noon Boyz on vocals and Kouchi Yugo among the backdancers, then Jesse Lewis, Hagiya Keigo and Morohoshi Shoki are transporting us back to the time when Arashi was the most exciting thing in the world with the great "Kotoba Yori Taisetsu na Mono". Kyomoto Taiga sings a short but impressive "Hitoribocchi no Haburashi" and TOY doing "Tsuyoku Dakishimete". And who is the newest member in the most recent line-up? It's Morita Myuto! And he's holding a microphone. And he's using it. To sing. *freak-out break*.

As if that wasn't enough, Question? are playing the first few chords of "Mezamero! Yasei", their 2008 collaboration with Matchy. They won't really going to play that, are they?? They are! Yeaah, I don't know when they performed this great song on SC the last time. Or maybe I'm just still too confused. Myuto is still on stage and is still using the microphone. So it wasn't an illusion. And then suddenley Yugo reenters , this time not as backdancer, but as singer.
Okay: Highlight.

Talk part with Daiki, Takaki,Yamada and Chinen about the episodes theme.

Medley of "Ai no Katamari" by Fujigaya Taisuke and "My love" by Kis-my-Ft2. "Ai no Katamari" features some nice backdancing by various juniors, especially to mention Kyomoto Taiga and Matsumura Hokuto. "My love" sounds very...familiar, to say so. Still not sure if I like it or not.

No cut of the Junior YouBin, because it didn't had anything we haven't seen before.

Super Delicate

"Super Delicate" by Hey!Say!JUMP. Great song, great performance. The song is as good as "Over", to me it's even better, altough it may not sound as catchy as "Over" at the first listen. Anyways, it shows clearly the way HSJ is going and follows the path they began to take with "Arigato". Seems "Magic Power" was just an "excursion". As said: Great!! And altough I said before that my excitement for HSJ has cooled down since they are nine, performances like that are giving me proof that I still love them. The fire still burns.
I've heard of people who were complaining that the interaction between Yuto and Yamada looked like "weak fanservice" and "not real". What's on your mind, people? Of course it's "not real". And it's no "fan-service" either, it is part of the choreography, for heavens sake! And personally , I like the Choreo a lot. This part especially, but also the rest.

Jr. ni Q

Only favourites of mine on the board: Jinguji Yuta, Morimoto Shintaro, Nakamura Reia, Tanaka Juri and Yasui Kentaro. Very, very nice. Theme is "Love song no.1". Presented by Yamada and Hikaru, who found a very new way to form the "Q" at the beginning. Not really of interest for anyone, but I say it nevertheless: Jinguji Yutas #1 Love song is the only KinKi Kids Song I really like..(Well, I said it isn't of interest.)

Za ABC ~5 Stars~

Performance by A.B.C-Z of ther debut DVD single track "Za ABC ~5 Stars~". Very good, typical A.B.C-Z performance. I prefer the silly DVD version even so.

Ending song is "With You" by Sexy Zone. Still one of my favourite songs, so this is a great ending to a really great episode to me. Now I just wish for some new Sexy Zone songs coming soon. But at the end of this great episode I shouldn't complain about anything at all.

I know, I should have gotten used to it by now, but seeing Shintaro next to Yamada still gives me that "まさか " kind of feel...and judging by the expression on his face, Yamada thinks the same..^^

I'm pretty sure you will like it! :)
juniorityjuniority on February 5th, 2012 11:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you for uploading these clips =D.
I was watching this episode in my room while my roommate and a friend were watching TV, and when I saw Myuto come onstage (center stage, in fact) singing, wearing one of the classiest costumes I've ever seen on a junior, I terrified them both by leaping off my bed and jumping around in absolute joy and excitement xDDD. I can die a happy fan now, and though I don't dare be too optimistic, I can only hope that Myuto keeps getting opportunities like this.
This was kind of a confusing episode in terms of who is grouped with who, but I don't really mind the constant shifting, as I've always been a fan of individuals over groups. I really liked the Juri-Shintaro-Yugo trio though.
"Super Delicate" was awesome, a killer song with fantastic choreo. And a fantastic Yamajima moment ^^. The HSJ intro medley was great too, I will never get tired of Yuto's: "shadow!?" I actually had it as my ring tone at one point, but I kept getting weird looks, so I switched it to Ryo's "Taiyo no Namida" ring tone xD.
Yasuken made me laugh so much during the Jr ni Q with the way he looked at Yama-chan while saying that he hates the way he's short. And then he kept teasing Yama-chan saying: "we're together in our short-ness" and "lets do our best to grow." Also, I loved how Hikaru called Shintaro "Shin-chan" when he came in and "Shintaro" when he left. Probably because now he's properly realized that Shintaro isn't a little boy any more xD.
This was truly a fantastic episode.
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 01:23 am (UTC)
You're still there! *happy* (Haven't seen you around LJ for some time)

I can die a happy fan now
Oh, no not now, please!

I've always been a fan of individuals over groups

Same here.

At these times I wouldn't dare to predict anything, but Myuto showing up singing with TOY makes me kind of hopefull to see him to be more prominetley featured in the near future. At least I hope so.
And about Yasui: Yes, he was great again in the Jr. ni Q. It is kind of an achivement to appear as the most polite junior of all times and to tease the host at the same time using the most pointed little knife...^^

Thank you very much. Nice to see Yugo in February magazines, too.
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 01:27 am (UTC)
Oh yes! I liked Februarys Potato especially. But I really longed for his return to stage.
(Anonymous) on February 5th, 2012 11:40 pm (UTC)
Huh? Sounds exciting, could you explain this a bit further?

I've been hired here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HxakYdnShM) as a reporter for the Waratte Koraete program, as a Brazilian correspondent(they also have a Shikyoku in Rome). Since then, we've been delivering weekly reports about Brazil, and in all programs I appear, I get to talk with the guests from Japan live!

If we're talking about Johnny's, I've already talked to Tsubasa (from Tackey and Tsubasa), which can be seen here http://varadoga.blog136.fc2.com/blog-entry-8209.html and Nagano (from V6). Next week, we'll have Sexy Zone as guests, so I'm planning on bringing all my posters and stuff xDD.

Yeeey!! :D
Congratulations for your blog, it's always me who's asking for more Maeda Maeda stuff and the one who said HSJ was not the same without Ryutaro, nor Shounen Club the same without Shintaro... But you made my day, I see he's back, double yey! :D

yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 01:11 am (UTC)
Wow! That's really exciting! I envy you for that job a lot! If you have the chance please tell Sou that he has a loyal fan-base in Germany (altough this fan-base consists only of me, I guess)..well, I guess there won't be an opportunity to bring this up during your talk with them^^. Anyway: Please report about the event back here, if you don't mind!

yuitozyuitoz on February 6th, 2012 12:57 am (UTC)
thnx u for uploading. i only watched super deli on streaming. n about the yamajima, i think they considering fanservice when came up with the choreo. my personal view only tho. i like the song, sounds familiar even when my 1st time listen to it.

shintaro is that tall already? taller than yamada..lol
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 01:42 am (UTC)
I guess this, too (fanservice). But there is nothing wrong about it, is it? I just wondering about the fans who take all that "fanservice" things for real in the first place..

Shintaros physical development is awesome, isn't it? Maybe he should take on the nickname "Colossus" or something like that..^^

Thank you so much for sharing!!!

I loved "SUPER DELICATE" performance!!! It was really perfect!!! To me it's even better than "OVER".

About the YamaJima moment, I think many fans are a little bit upset because during the "New Year Concert" Yamada and Nakajima were closer than what we saw during their performance on "Shounen Club".

Even if it's a choreography, it's pretty obvious that the person in charge to put the dance routine decided to include a moment about Yamada and Nakajima. Why in the hell he (she) doesn't included a moment like this between Yabu and Inoo?

I think that from the beginning it was decided to include a moment of fan-service into the choreography in order to keep the attention of the fans on YamaJima (Main characters in "Risou no Musuko") and to create commotion among the fans.

I personally love this kind of fan-service and choreographies because we, as fans, are the happiest ones. Planned or not, it was made for us so I'm grateful for that.

About Yamada and Shintaro I agree, Yama-chan looked really awkward! His face expressed what his mouth couldn't say.

yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
You're right of course (about the fan-service-thing according to "Risou no Musuko").

I personally love this kind of fan-service and choreographies because we, as fans, are the happiest ones. Planned or not, it was made for us so I'm grateful for that.
Couldn't have said it better!

Thanks for the clips!

Even if his appearance was brief, I'm glad to see Yugo on SC (finally!). Saves me from placing giant mattresses and trampolines under your roof incase you decided to jump ^^

Jr ni Q was just all kinds of love. Hikaru teasing Yamada. Hikaru figeting next to Reia like a teenage girl going on her first date with the cutest boy in school. Yasui teasing Yamada. Forgetting of sempai's lyrics. Jinguji's song choice. I love Zenbu Dakishimete, but instead of a love song it's one that I listen to for a little lift me up and is probably my favorite from Kinki as well.
And of course Juri was going to pick a Yamapi song! the closest Koki's gotten to a love song is "Make U wet chapter 2" ...

This episode blew January's episodes out of the water completely. Myuto center stage, singing into a mic. Perfection.
yabu_takeshiyabu_takeshi on February 6th, 2012 11:48 pm (UTC)
Saves me from placing giant mattresses and trampolines under your roof incase you decided to jump ^^
LOL! I really love how you always come back on my silly remarks..

I also consider "Zenbu Dakishimite" more to be an up-lifter than a love song.
If Juri had choosen "Make U wet chapter 2" that could have gone epic...But I guess in that case he wouldn't had be invited on the board in the first place this time..^^

Myuto center stage, singing into a mic. Perfection. Almost. I'll draw the "perfection" card if everyone around him will keep silent while he's doing so...okay, I know I'm getting unreasonable...
