Kis-My-Ft2 will get their first regular variety show on TV Asahi starting this spring. The concept of the show, which is titled “Hama Kis,” is a “variety school.” The show will have comedian Hamaguchi Masaru (of the duo Yoiko) and other guest comedians teaching the fundamentals of variety shows to the members of Kis-My-Ft2.

The show first aired as a late-night special on December 29 of last year, and a second special was already scheduled to air on March 23. Many of the show’s segments involve physical feats, such as high diving from 10 meters up or crossing a very narrow suspension bridge.

The show’s regular broadcast will begin on April 4 in TV Asahi’s Wednesday late-night 1:21am-1:51am time slot.

Yamauchi Suzuran will become a regular member for a golf TV show Golf Nadeshiko, airing from April 7th, 2012, 23:30 onward (length of each episode is still unknown) on TV Tokyo.

On top of being an idol and juggling her schoolwork, Ranran is aiming to become a female pro-golfer. In Chiba, Ranran received lessons from Koga Miho, an ex-pro golfer and 12-time winner and 2008 money-list title holder on the JLPGA.

Ranran said, "Since I was young, I've dreamed about being a pro-golfer more than being an idol. I will be a diligent apprentice and learn from Koga-san. And work hard to pass the pro-golfer test."


Criminal Charges Dropped in Canada Customs Manga Case

"The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and the Comic Legends Legal Defense Fund are pleased to announce that the Crown has withdrawn all criminal charges in R. v. Matheson, the case previously described as the “Brandon X case,” which involved a comic book reader who faced criminal charges in Canada relating to comic books on his computer. The defendant, Ryan Matheson, a 27-year-old comic book reader, amateur artist, and computer programmer has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing.

The notice about the arrest had been posted here, so I thought it would be worthwhile to post the result, even though it ended up being more of an issue of the abuse of police powers than of manga.</i>
