  • MADE ni Omakase (Apr 23)

    • Fukushi wrote about going to see “WORLDISTA” in Fukui with the other members of MADE. It was the only day that all four members could make it together. He said it’s been awhile since they’ve watched NEWS’ concert and it felt a little strange, but he knew a lot of the songs and it was really exciting from start to finish. He said that NEWS knew they were watching and came and gave them fan service and introduced them in the MC. He also thanked Shige for letting them promote their play. He also commented on how it was very NEWS like that they talked about the showers for 30 minutes in the MC, saying it’s amazing that they could draw it out that long and that he learned a lot lol.
      He also complimented the junior’s dancing.
      He said after the show they went out to dinner with everyone and said that NEWS was really kind. He said he was a bit jealous though that the new juniors had this opportunity to go out to eat with all of NEWS, because back before they had a lot of interaction with NEWS they didn’t have that opportunity.

    • It was Shige’s turn to update

    • Shige wrote about how it recently was his 20th anniversary of joining Johnny’s, though it feels more like it’s been around 10 years. He said that he got many celebratory messages to his radio, and mentioned how it trended online too. He said that he’s really grateful but he feels like what’s important isn’t how much time, but how you’ve spent the time. It’s not like he feels like this is time he can be proud of, though that’s just how his personality is. What he most wants to say is that it’s thanks to everyone’s support that he’s been able to come this far, and he’ll work hard so that all those who have supported him will feel glad to have done so.

  • KEIICHIRO (Apr 25) K.jpg

    • He wrote an entry about his cat, Milk. He decided to put her through sterilisation, and she just had the operation the previous day. He shared how he was torn about the decision, how worried he was and is for her, and how he reached the decision as he felt he could only properly care for one pet. He ended the entry with a photo of Milk, and said he’s sorry he made everyone listen to his troubles.

  • Masuda Takahisa no Marumaru (Apr 25) M.jpg

    • Masuda Takahisa no Fukui

    • He thanked everyone who came to the Fukui concerts for a wonderful time and talked about buying glasses in Fukui. He said the concerts were fun and thanked everyone for all the love.

  • KEIICHIRO (Apr 27)

    • Koyama updated that the hiroshima concerts start from today and that’s he’s really been looking forward to the weekend. He also mentioned the fans who couldn’t make it, tell them to be good. He uploaded two selfies, of him being “tsundere” one where he’s “tsun” and one of him being “dere”.

  • JUMPaper (Apr 28)

    • Yuto wrote about how he asked Shige to get him a noren in commemoration of his play, “Wild”, starting since it’s apparently a custom to have a sempai make you one for plays and Shige did. He included a picture of the noren, the left half is pink and the right side is grey with a black demoiselle crane spanning across both sides and his name written on the right side in pink. He said that it’s really cool and commented on how it’s in the colors pink and grey since he started in the movie adaption of Shige’s book, “Pink and Grey”.
      The demoiselle crane can flight the highest out of all the birds in the world. Because the character “翔” in Yuto’s name means “to fly”, Shige included it with the meaning that he wants Yuto to be an actor fly high. Yuto said that he was really grateful and happy.

  • Masuda Takahisa no Marumaru (Apr 30) M.jpg

    • Masuda Takahisa no Hiroshima

    • He thanked everyone in Hiroshima for choosing to attend their last concert of the Heisei era, and for a great time. He also wrote about the memories they have of the venue, including the time when Koyama had to be isolated from them due to his cold.
      He said he also talked with the juniors a lot, and mentioned how Johnny-san wanted them to groom the four juniors new to back dancing for NEWS, and he hopes they’re doing okay with that.
      At the end of the entry he thanked Hiroshima again.


  • MADE and the juniors following NEWS on the current tour took videos from one of the Fukui concert for Island TV, and you can view them in the source links. (Source 1 2 3 4)

  • Caricarina, a shop selling products for cats, tweeted to say Koyama’s cat is using a product of theirs, and they felt his love and dedication towards Milk. (TL note: they’re likely referring to the photo of Milk Koyama posted in his Apr 25 entry, where Milk was seen lying on a product by Caricarina) (Source)

  • As Yuto (Hey! Say! JUMP) has mentioned in his jweb, he asked Shige to make him a noren for his play, and this was picked up various web news coverage on Yuto’s play, including Oricon. (Source)

  • Dribble designer Okabe Masakazu tweeted to promote his appearance in May 4th’s episode of “Soccer Earth”, saying he had dribble training with Tegoshi. He said Tegoshi was such a soccer and dribble mania and he forgot Tegoshi’s a Johnny’s when they started their practice. (Source)
