The episode the Earth stood still


Shonen Club Cuts episode 04/11/2012. But let's take a look at the current sales of "Lady Diamond" first :
The sales on the third day were 9,160. This is a less dramatic drop than yesterday and pretty normal considering the sales of the previous days. Perfume managed to sell 8,715, so they're coming nearer but Sexy Zone still stays on top. For the weekley Charts Sexy Zone are having a comfortable advance of Perfume of 22,201 units now. I don't think Perfume can catch up on this, but you never know.

Now on to Shonen Club. All videos are 1024 x 576 Res.,all Avi, all on Mediafire. Credits for FS to Shokura@lj. Theme of the episode is "Earth".

Opening

Opening song is "Born in the Earth" by Hey!Say!JUMP. A really nice version! HSJ are backed up by lots of Juniors..and one of them is Kishimoto Shintaro, who was absent from Johnnys for quite a long time now. I think I have spotted him in the previous episode, too, but I wasn't 100 % sure if it was him. So in the previous episode Kadoi Kento, in this one Kishimoto..I wonder who will come back in the next episode..(Rikito? Hideki? Ryutaro? Misaki..?..ah well..back to reality ..*sigh*..)

Talk

Opening talk with Hey!Say!JUMP and announcement of the Junior medley.

Medley

Medley of "Sekai ni Hitotsu ni Naru Made" and "Boku no Senaka ni wa Hane ga Aru". Great to me, because one of my favourite songs (Sekai ni Hitotsu ni Naru Made) is performed by five of my absolute favourite Juniors: Jinguji Yuta, Kuramoto Kaoru, Haniuda Amu, Takahashi Fu and Kishi Yuta. In the second part a few more are joining in wich adds two more of my favourites, Nakamura Reia and Inoue Mizuki to the performance. So everything is at its best here. For that matter. BUT: A medley that lasts for just one minute and forty seconds?? Are you kidding me?? Normally one single part of a medley should last that long but not the whole thing!! What is it latley with this ultra-short performances on Shonen Club?!? Well, at least those 1:40 minutes are filled with glory.

Talk

Talk part of Arioka Daiki and Okamoto Keito with Sexy Zones Marius Yo, Sato Shori and Matsushima Sou about the episodes theme. I never tought I would ever get to hear Daiki and Keito attentiveley murmuring the term "Umweltschutztag" (environment protection day) on Shonen Club...their pronunciation was really good, by the way.

Lady Diamond

Sexy Zone performance of their (most likely) #1 single "Lady Diamond". Somewhat diffrent choreo then the performances on Music Japan and the Ichiban song Show. But maybe they just tricked me because of the diffrent outfit. Whatever: Really nice performance! I also liked how the Juniors in the back were reprising their roles of the PV (And I liked the fact that Sexy Zone didn't suddenly stopped singing after two minutes..*Still sulky about the Junior medley*)

Talk

Talk part of Daiki and Yaotome Hikaru with Kis-My-Ft2, mostly about the choreography to "Girl is mine".

Medley

Kis-My-Ft2 medley of the overture of their album and the songs "Girl is mine" and "Dancing Star". Altough it's not my preferred style I like "Girl is mine" quite a lot, but I don't think the reluctant choreo fits this track at all. "Dancing Star" is a song that gives me absolutley nothing, I can understand that it was just a bonus track on the regular edition. Don't know why they chose this particular song for this performance.

Next up was the Junior YOUBin, wich lasted for almost seven minutes presenting something about being disturbed while doing Karaoke. Was supposed to be ultimatley funny but was not. Seven Minutes for that!  They could have done five Junior-Medleys of 1:40 minutes in that time...*Still upset*.As a matter of principle: No cut!!

To be or not to be

Another of these en vouge epic XXL - performances on Shonen Club: Noon Boyz are given breathtaking one and a half minutes to perform "To be, or not to be". I wonder what the producers had to cut from the recording to give them that enormous space. To be honest I wasn't that disappionted as for the Junior medley when the "song" was over, because the performance lacked something. But I don't blame that on Nozawa or Sanada. It's hard to give a convincing performance in such a short time.

Arigato ~Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo~

"Arigato ~Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo~" by Hey!Say!JUMP. I don't have much to say here. It is still one of my favourite songs by HSJ, altough I've listened maybe a bit too often to it to be overexcited about this performance.

Jr. ni Q

Continuation of last weeks episode, again hosted by Yamada Ryosuke and Hikaru. On the board: Tanaka Juri, Casey Anderson and Yasui Kentaro, who had by far the biggest part of the three. Wich isn't a complaint even in the slightest way! :)
Download : MF

Medley

Daiki, Takaki Yuya and Chinen Yuri (who messed around with someone in the audience during this it seemed) are announcing the medley of A.B.C-Z and Question? (Part is included in this cut). The medley consits of "Naked" and "Bokura ~Love & Peace~" . I like both songs, the performance was good,..nothing to complain here!
Download : MF

Ending

After the end talk by Takaki, Daiki and Yamada (included in file) the ending song is "JUMP around the world" by Hey!Say!JUMP featuring Keito on guitar, Hikaru on bassguitar and Yuto on drums..wich is something I always like to see. Backed up by Question? and the older Juniors (TOY, Kouchi Yugo and Matsumura Hokuto, Tanaka Juri, Morohoshi Shoki..and so on). A.B.C-Z, Kikuchi Fuma, Nakajima Kento and Noon Boyz are entering the stage towards the end, too. Good ending with a very nice song and performance.
