From 9 to 5 ... even though I feel sorry for the fans, I'm guessing this is a good example for how Johnny doesn't always have a lucky hand when it comes to choosing people with chemistry.

I thought Mary who are the one who created NewS not Johnny, but then again NEWS was pretty much a train wreck since the start.

Well somehow i'm not surprise.

Btw, this is the shortest article i've ever read XD.

What?? I feared this but, Johnny, no. :(( I liked News and I can't picture them without Ryo and Pi because they were the reason I started watching them to begin with. First Jin, now these two. Is he trying to make "Jin's crew" a league of solo artists (if you don't mind Ryo being in K8, which I'm not that much of a fan of tbh)? Lol.
I can see why Pi left (solo career, same excuse as Jin, etc) but kinda confused about Ryo though? Hopefully News will actually start doing something other than releasing TegoMass stuff.

Hard schedule is hard.
That's why Ryo left, I suppose.

To be honest I listened to newS only because i knew Yamapi and Ryo first. Then I liked Tegoshi. but this... yeah this>>>>>> it's gonna be hard

I'm not a fan but i feel so sad about this because it reminds me of things that happened to KAT-TUN. I'm not a fan of those 2 anyway so maybe this way NEWS can move on with proper promotions.

Good luck guys! :D

Well...no surprise. I liked them as a 6man group but well...not the end of the world...

OMG THE GIF <3333

Jin leaving KAT-TUN, I got. But I always kinda thought NEWS would be that group that would get together every once in forever, have an awesome concert, makes lots of money and break apart until next time.
But this... being official.... it's like... IT MAKES ME FEEL ANY GROUP IS BREAKABLE NOW. WHAT THE HELL. WHO'S NEXT? ;=;

Tego and Massu are basically just TegoMass now. So it's basically Shige and Koyama left. THEY CAN'T CARRY ON WITH JUST PERVE SONGS. GOOD GOD. THIS WORLD I CAN'T.

agree, it scares me too. we'll never know which group will be losing its members soon.

Bye-bye NEWS
yaoilicious_53 7th-Oct-2011 12:41 pm (UTC)

omg not that gif :((

Then, soon, Tegomasu will decide that they will go on their own too and News will just be Koyashige. HAHAHA. Oh guys...

I'm not really a News fan, and I usually watch some News for Shige, or Koyashige. :P But really, any news about a group breaking or losing members is really disappointing and sad! D: D: D:

AND NOT ON TOMA'S BIRTHDAY, DAMN IT
aiek08 7th-Oct-2011 12:46 pm (UTC)
Oh. Now that the two "busiest" people in the group are not there anymore, the new NEWS will be more active then? :D :D :D Yes?
urufuchinen 7th-Oct-2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
Maybe this is the best decision for those 2. Now all we can do is wait for the rest 4 to SHINE ♥
SHIGEAKI I'M WAITING FOR YOU
