i also remember a hey hey hey episode where news appeared on and about a april fools joke where shige sent to koyama about how pi was leaving NEWS and koyama was like we are nothing without him. i wonder if the other news members feel a little left out or insecure about their position because none of them mentioned or wished yamapi good luck on their blog posts.
with ryo busy with k8 stuff and NEWS releasing only 1 single, it doens't look too good for NEWS. not saying that the will break up or anything but you know it probably feels weird since they don't spend too much time together as a group. with more time they spend apart, NEWS fans wait more eagerly to get stelast a single out of them or much less a concert.
