Yamashita Tomohisa & Imada Koji to team up for Fuji TV’s new variety show




It was announced that Yamashita Tomohisa will team up with talento Imada Koji, to become the MCs for Fuji TV’s new variety show “Shougeki! Sansedai Hikaku TV Generation Tengoku” (tentative title).

This new variety show will compare the life style of Japanese people splitting them into three generations, and total 15 guests from various backgrounds who are in their 10~20s, 40~50s, and over 60s, will be invited each time to hold a talk battle.

The first episode will be filmed in January next year, and the themes will be “Foods that surprised you” and “The life style of high school girls”.  The guests from each generation will share their stories while watching the VTR that shows the comparison between the generations.

This will be the first time for Yamashita to make a regular appearance on a variety show, and also, to be the MC of a show. “I am nervous to co-star with Imada-san, but I am also looking forward to getting to know more about different generations. I would love to know the ideas that our generation doesn’t possess,” said Yamashita. Imada also commented, “I want to make this show one that everybody watches regardless of age or sex, and helps them come up with conversations for the next day. I also hope I can receive first-hand information about the young generation from Yama-P.”


“Shougeki! Sansedai Hikaku TV Generation Tengoku” will start airing in January (every Monday at 8:00 pm).

I am not sure I'd want to watch Yamapi host a variety show. He seems too reserved when he's not performing.

I actually looking forward for this. Something new from Yamapi .He keeps doing new things.

Great news:) But it would be more awesome if Toma was the co-host! He and Jin totally makes Pi more livelier.

This is the one that's replacing HeyHeyHey?

I'm not too excited about this. And je seems to be really pushing yamapi to the public.

So does that mean the show will end after all the 15 guests? I'm really happy for Yamapi, but now that I know the theme of the show, I can't say that I'm as excited as I was before I knew... But I can't judge until I've seen it. Even if I don't like it I'll watch every episode anyways because Yamapi is my love lol.
miyamapi 14th-Dec-2012 10:41 am (UTC)
Oh I see. It's 15 guests every episode... Should've read that better. ^_^;;

good luck for him! i just hope he didn't mess up since everyone know he's not good doing mc! lol

Mixed feelings about this.

On one hand I'm happy that Yamapi is moving out of his comfort zone (or maybe his management is pushing him forward) and I think Imada Koji will make for an entertaining host.

On the other hand...

a) Yamapi usually comes across as a very shy and reserved individual on TV/Talk shows so I don't know how good he'll be as a host.

b) This will be replacing HEY!x3 ... those are some pretty big shoes to fill. The show's general outline does not sound terribly exciting on paper so I can only hope that the actual thing will be entertaining and well executed.

LOL another questionable decision by Fuji TV...No wonder people are wondering why the station has been falling behind NTV and TV Asahi and sometimes even TBS variety-wise...
takarai_karin 14th-Dec-2012 05:50 pm (UTC)
TereAsa's variety shows kick ass, everybody else should just pick up their toys and go home, imo *says the one that likes a lot of nitere and TBS stuff too* ;P

tks
lolufailhard 15th-Dec-2012 06:14 am (UTC)
sounds decent. might watch the first episode just to see how it is. loveeeee yamapi's outfit in that vid though lmao
bridgetothesky 15th-Dec-2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
p daijoubu?? hes not so good with the variety...

im sure he'll try to make things moriagaru n exciting but it might come off a little fakeish.. well but it is Imada Kouji so maybe he'll help P loosen up. hopefully this will help him regain some fans.. i doubt itll help fujiterebi get the heyheyhey ratings though..
