Arama They Didn't

7:11 pm - 02/20/2013

Ninomiya Kazunari to host his solo variety.

Popular group Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari will have his own variety program titled “Nino-san” starting in April on NTV. This will mark his first time serving as the sole MC.

The program is said to be a “matching trial program” in which 5 different directors from NTV will come up with a new plan every week, and they will find out which director would be the best-suited to work with Ninomiya. There will be a total of 10 episodes, and they will pick the best attempt among those episodes. Then, the chosen episode will become a regular program, which will start airing sometime after this fall.

The highlight of the program will be what kind of new charm Ninomiya would show, and which director could enhance Ninomiya’s charm the most.

The 5 directors include Uetoshi Ryuta (“Arashi ni Shiyagare“), Uchida Hidemi (“Sekai no Hate made Itte Q!“), Nasu Taisuke (“Guruguru Ninety-nine“), Hashimoto Kazuaki (“Hiru Nandesu!“), and Miyamori Hiroki (“Star☆Draft Kaigi“).

Ninomiya commented, “So this is the first time I will be the sole MC. I am very happy honestly! Everything will be a new experience for me, but I will try my best so that I won’t be the one who fails the tryout.”

According to the producer, “I’ve always felt Ninomiya-san’s high response capability, and I wanted to see him serving as MC by himself. I hope it can show the viewers a new side of Ninomiya-san, which he does not even notice himself.”

“Nino-san” will be aired in a late-night time slot, but its broadcasting time has not yet been decided.

Not yet. I will edit when I find more information :)
inachan89 20th-Feb-2013 07:32 pm (UTC)
I love Nino but that title????lolz
Wonder what it could be about...
blood_opal 20th-Feb-2013 08:28 pm (UTC)
Lol I wonder if all the Arashi members are going to start having their own variety show separate from Arashi.

Not sure about variety show, but probably more individual activities. For the past years, Arashi's been marketed for their bonding, and fandom goes berserk when they're "separated" from each other. We know the bond as a group is their strong point, but I don't think it's a bad thing to let them grow as individuals.
cleotine 20th-Feb-2013 08:30 pm (UTC)
Lol for the creative name of the show XD
But I'm happy for him! Yay!! Though I wouldn't've said no to a new all-members show...
masaki82 20th-Feb-2013 09:32 pm (UTC)

Wow O.O I'm literally speechless...

exdream1999 20th-Feb-2013 09:39 pm (UTC)
I have to say that doing 10 special episodes first with different formats, before deciding on a permanent one is a really good idea. I guess since it's 5 directors, that there's 5 formats over two episodes?

But this way, they can judge the audience's preference first, before jumping in blind.

I remember saying I wanted this in the Sho solo show post lolol. This is what he wants to do in the future, isn't it, so it'll be good experience for him to see how he fares on his own. HAPPY FOR NINO :D:D:D
dramaticsurgeon 20th-Feb-2013 09:53 pm (UTC)
I remember him saying he'd really like to do a variety show someday. Good to see he got his wish. :)

Mte :)

Nino's the smart one and the one who gets the guest talking so I don't think he's a bad choice. But personally, Arashi members complement themselves well together but when put individually, they're quite weak in contrast.

That's why I felt Himitsu no Arashi chan with the segments of just the two members leading felt so lacking and not as interesting.

wow that a lot of responsibility for nino i think...gambatte!..i'm hoping its late-night and with the old shukudai crew
karasu_0 20th-Feb-2013 10:40 pm (UTC)
apparently it is gonna be broadcasted late at night(also only in the Kantou region) and the participating directors will be from these NTV shows:
-Arashi ni Shiyagare
-Sekai no Hate made ItteQ
-Guru Guru 99
-Star☆Draft Kaigi
momokaymac 20th-Feb-2013 10:35 pm (UTC)
Neens alone? Hmm... I'm gonna need to see about this. It seems so weird! He doesn't even have a co-host like sho? Hmm anyways, I'll always support them, I just hope they would never cancel vs arashi or shiyagare cause I'm going to miss them all together
lettace 20th-Feb-2013 10:39 pm (UTC)
I definitely want more Nino, this is definitely a medium he can use to appeal to a larger demographic as well.

I do wonder how someone as silent (but still hilar) as Ohno would handle something like this lol.
statr 20th-Feb-2013 10:41 pm (UTC)
Nino got his wish! Definitely part of a new marketing plan to make Arashi more recognized as individuals, I suppose.
love323able 20th-Feb-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
I am sooo excited for this. but somewhat also nervous.....
enorcsi 20th-Feb-2013 11:05 pm (UTC)
creative title is creative

they should name Sho's Sho time XD

anyway, congrats Nino!

who's next?
jagithebassist 20th-Feb-2013 11:19 pm (UTC)
Okay, that's it. If Nino is getting his own show, Ohno BETTER get some fishing show (loljk but I wouldn't complain).
cleotine 20th-Feb-2013 11:46 pm (UTC)
Exactly my thought XD
Honestly, what's the old man doing atm? Everyone is soooo busy but him. And he absolutely gets away with it *lol*
dramajewels 20th-Feb-2013 11:45 pm (UTC)
I think this is a good idea. I hope things go well for him. I also hope they get another Arashi group variety show. I love them together.
saori11 21st-Feb-2013 12:26 am (UTC)
Sooo excited!!
kat_desu 21st-Feb-2013 01:02 am (UTC)
Congrats Neen! :DDD
kazuninomi 21st-Feb-2013 08:57 am (UTC)
love ur icon...

i just miss them so much*_*
lady_ryora 21st-Feb-2013 01:07 am (UTC)
As long as their shows as a group continues, its okay for me for them to have solo shows... As long as they never forget that they are still a group.... and the friendship that fans admired of will not fade away everything will be fine, darou?

O yay! Nino used to be my least fav in Arashi and now I've been on a Nino-kick for weeks and ideky
aaah Neeners <3
arashic5 21st-Feb-2013 02:44 pm (UTC)
You've seen the lights.
chibi_hime 21st-Feb-2013 01:48 am (UTC)
I hope this airs late night and that Nino spills the tea on JE talents like he did on his old J-web.
sekainostar 21st-Feb-2013 02:42 pm (UTC)
I didn't know this. What he has written on his old blog?
mizumi10 21st-Feb-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
Loven the title like i love him XD but looking forward to the show.

whether it's good or bad; there's nothing wrong with trying the things he wants to do. i cringe every time i read comments doubting the success of talents like nino and alike in their solo work. I know it's Arashi's group image that we all like, but they are their own individuals too with individual wants and dreams. besides, we can learn more about them as an individual in their own shows that we don't see in arashi. Have some faith people and support him through this. :)
helenmaldon 21st-Feb-2013 02:29 am (UTC)
Oh wow!! I feel both excited and weirdly nervous for some reason...but I think he will do a good job on his own ^^ But please have Arashi members as guests sometime in the future xD
The best would be if Ohno became his non-speaking sidekick!
