ryo 〖silent song〗


From the first issue of the K8 fanclub newsletter...

Vol. Encounter

Lately I've been spending a lot of time with the members due to filming for the movie Eito Rangers. Although all we ever talk about are unimportant stuff *laughs*, come to think of it, having been together with these members for 14 years... That's a long time, isn't it? The first ones I got to know among the members were Ohkura and Yasu, followed by Maru. I got accepted at the auditions in September when I was 13, and back then when we were split into groups i ended up in the same group as the three of them and we got along really well right from the beginning. On that very day I got asked by Yasu for my address and home phone number... Yup, we didn't have our cellphones yet back then. Ah, but i wonder why he had to ask for the address?! *Laughs*

I love the yakiniku story, even though it's been told to death, lol. Yoko always recalled how he couldn't afford to bring Ryo for anything too expensive back then, and then felt bad as Ryo looked so happy eating, exclaiming non-stop about how delicious everything was. Aww. It wasn't really about the food, Yoko.

The part on Yasu asking for his contact info at the auditions lol - it was also through Yasu that the jimusho could finally contact Ryo after the auditions, cos he'd mis-written his own home phone number on the forms LOL and Ryo said in a recent interview that if not for Yasu, he'd probably not have ended up where he is today. All these cute lil ways in which they mattered to each other in the past, haha.

It's probably amazing to be a part of a group that has a common sense of purpose, a group that appreciates you for who you are and, most importantly, helps you to grow as a person. ♥ I always have problems saying sorry (even til now), so that lil bit at the end really moved me personally.

this is my dream k8 song coming true.

I can't explain why, but this is perfect for K8.
Thank you UNIST thankyouthankyouthankyou.

I'm expecting them to do this song during their 8th anni events in August, and i can't wait to hear this live.

Nishikido Ryo of Kanjani8.. Suddenly Married

......................looking forward to Papa wa Idol! \:DDDD/ Lololol at all those Japanese people flooding twitter in shock after seeing the CM just now. Gotcha. XD

"Only those who didn’t give up remain here now."

School term has started today and i'm finally back at work - which is good for me cos i've been in a dazed mode ever since i came back from Osaka last week, so having stuff to be busy over again would definitely help me out of it. :|

Anyway, highly recommended read - Maru's 10000-word interview. He's not perfect, but i do think he's very awesome and endearing as a person. ♥
One of the girls i was with for the show on the 29th held a hand-made WILD7 uchiwa. We were in the arena and when Maru came by and saw the uchiwa and pompoms, he gave the group of us a very huge wave and a peace-sign. Girl burst into tears. XD I think I was going to, too lol cos the way he smiled at us was just so... from-the-heart, so amazing. You could rlly see Maru literally scanning the audience and their uchiwas, and trying his best to respond to as many of his fans as possible, at every show.

Strawberry Night starts tomorrow! /excited

welcome to the starlight parade

Taking note of some people seen at K8's Tokyo Dome show today - Jin (tog with Josh, Fuku-kun etc), Inocchi (of V6), Mizukawa Asami (tog with the two kid actors in Inu wo Kau), Koike Teppei, Sugiura Taiyou, cast members from Yasu's stageplay Trust Ikanee, Masuko of Dohatsuten (composer of Monjai Beat), Nakamura Teppei (director of 8UPPERS, 365nichi Kazoku PV and the concert opening video), Recomen's K-taro etc
Seen previous two days - Kitagawa Yujin of Yuzu and the boss of his record company, Taguchi, Akan Keisatsu staff, Zenkai Girl staff, Sexy Zone members, Yara, Akkun, Ryo's elder bro, Maru's younger sis, lotsa random Johnny Jrs etc

When the album was first announced I wondered why the name 'FIGHT', and then the track 'Fight for the Eight' surfaced and convinced me that it's about the place they're at right now, fighting for things important to them, including the group. Looking at the official logo of the tour, i also like how 'Fight' is just one stroke short of 'Eight'. Like, it's a Fight right now, one year before their big 8th anniversary next year. Their setup outside the dome venues (and also at several 311 disaster-hit areas) also made me see the title from a different dimension. I'm reminded of what they'd said at some press conferences this year and also some of the shows so far. They truly believe that they can do a part to help Japan recover from 311, and one of the ways is to try to bring laughter to the people in a way only K8 can.
"These are flowers that bloomed in the disaster-hit areas. Let's smile along with our friends and counterparts (from those areas).
Believe in the future and FIGHT together with us!! - Kanjani8"

Uploaded some random Jpop i've been looping recently (besides the K8 album):
Crystal Kay - Superman
SEKAI NO OWARI - Starlight Parade
Namie Amuro - Love Story
Ikimonogakari - Aruite Ikou

pon pon way pon way pon pon..............

I know i'm very late, but i finally got brainwashed by this song. I was just watching the past week's SMAPxSMAP where Gorokumi did a copy of her video, and i just had to youtube for the original after i saw that.

This was the person whom Hina was trying to explain about to Ryo on Tsuushin a while back. Apparently Hina saw her on TV. "The MC asked her for her name and she went 'Kyary Pamyu Pamyu desuuu~~~' I thought to myself 'What's with this fella!!!!' I had such a shock!" lololololol.
Ryo'd never heard of her. "Shall go home and google her tonight. :|"

Edit: Damn, just realised that she's of the same age as some of my students this year. That explains a lot of things.

Anyways 11nin mo iru! is so good, people. ♥

A is for APLLU

So ゾロって7 the new corner they did for the Shiwake SP yesterday was rlly, rlly fun. LOLed so hard omg. All seven of them gotta give the same answer to three consecutive and progressively difficult questions in order to win the game.

Qn: "What would be the representative chemical symbol/formula that comes to your mind?"
Hina: CO2
Ryo: H2O
Tacchon: H2O
Maru: CO2
Yasu: O2

Yoko: π

Subaru: 元r2


If i ever have kids one day i'll make sure they study hard in school and know the difference between chemistry and mathematics............and kanji. /weeps
I'll make sure they learn their spelling properly too.

That aside, Ryo in Zenkai Girl = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ WHY SO CUTE, SOUTA? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
Was hoping for K8 ED song to be something upbeat like It's My Soul (my boom song these few days)... It's not but it's still a sweet song, and would probably grow on me. :3
