  • So Good Day (Jan 5)

    • Sou wrote about getting dinner for the first time with an unnamed sempai, which we now know to be Tegoshi after he mentioned going out with Sou in this week’s Kchan NEWS.

      Sou talked about receiving advice from his sempai that really resounded with him regarding debuting really fast without spending much time as a junior. You have to find your own path and push forward. He talked about how though his and Tegoshi’s situations are kind of similar, the way they see the world is really different, but that it was heartening to feel that he wasn’t alone. It also made him think that he needs to be more positive and step out of his comfort zone.

  • Made ni Omakase (Jan 23)

    • Kento mentioned the release of NEVERLAND in his entry, saying he appears in it and it’s full of highlights. He also wrote about “U R not alone”, how he can still remember the last Tokyo Dome performance very clearly. It’s a song filled with memories and emotions, and he hopes everyone will look out for this moment in the DVD. At the end, he said twice that the release is tomorrow (because it’s important).

He then wrote about the triple release campaign, for everyone to please look forward to it as it’s something they’ve been wanting to do for the longest time and he thinks everyone would be happy. If it turns out any different, he’d go apologise, while crying.
