Ha also said he’s happy to be able to ring in the new years with fans at kyocera dome. He also talked about how Kinki Kids usually do the end of year concerts and how he wouldn’t forget how precious this opportunity that he is inheriting from them is. He also talked about how he read their jweb entries about it, and that he and the members would do their best to be a group that they can be proud of.
      They would also do their best to deliver the best performance to the fans who have supported them so far. He said they’re in meetings to figure out who they will transform the Epcotia arena shows into Epcotia Encore, and hinted that the 3 aliens may make a reappearance.

    • It was Massu’s turn to update

    • He said that they’re currently preparing and thinking up ideas for the Epcotia Encore concerts. He said that something will be a bit difficult with the break in between [the arena and dome concerts] but that he’d do his best. For shiritori he picked ukkari which means thoughtlessly or or carelessly, saying that he meant to update around noon but it ended up getting put off til night. At the end he thanked everyone and said we should all do our best.


  • The official twitter account for “Inugamike no Ichizoku” is up, do follow it for updates on Shige’s SP drama.

  • zopp mentioned Tegomass in an interview he did with Real Sound, when he replied to the question saying the lyrics for Tegomass songs aren’t quite the same as the other idols. He shared how he writes both romance and family lyrics for them, and most of the lyrics have a part based on his real life. Except “Miso Soup”, where the lyrics are nearly equal to his life. It’s somewhat embarrassing, but he still gets touched when he listens to the speech-like parts of the song. (Source)

  • Lyricist/ composer/ producer Shusei, who’s worked on numerous songs with NEWS and Tegomass, like “Akaku Moyuru Taiyou” and “Miso Soup”, tweeted two photos recently, of his gold disks from Sweden and Japan for “Miso Soup”. (Source 1 2)

  • On Oct 30, Aoki-ana (who worked with Massu on “PON!”) tweeted when the episode of “Odoru Sanma Goten” Massu guested on was on-air, saying Massu with his swept up bangs is cute. He can’t watch the programme because he still has work, and told Massu he’ll do his best, and then watch the recorded programme later. He also asked everyone to enjoy it for him. (Source)
