Shout Okaeri! NEWS is coming back!



As we reported, Johnny’s Entertainment had had a countdown on their official website, and the mysterious count down officially stopped on April 15th at 12:00AM. When the timer hit 00:00, the huge clock turned into a silhouette of 4 people with some background music. Many people could not see this as the website servers were swamped by people trying to access the site.

Matching up with many fans assumptions, there’s some good news for NEWS fans as it seems the information was about NEWS. The silhouette picture matches up exactly the same as their profile picture on Johnny’s website.

After Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo withdrew from NEWS back on October 2011, fans were hardly able to see their activities as the new 4 member NEWS, Koyama Keiichiro, Kato Shigeaki, Masuda Takahisa and Tegoshi Yuya.

There is no more details and Johnny’s website is currently inaccessible, so stay tuned for more details!

Congratulations for all NEWS fans who had been waiting for this moment!

This might be a preview for their new song:

lol, i don't know if I should cry or be amused that the server crashed when it hit 00:00:00. I can't hear a thing! 
The K-chan radio show on Tuesday (or the 4-nin NEWS radio guesting today?) will probably be able to clear more things. 
Some people are saying it's gonna be a new single and a BEST OF ALBUM. Not officially confirmed though.

Acchan is hungry for some JE peen



Now that AKB48’s Maeda Atsuko has announced her graduation, could the girl also be out prowling for a hot arm candy? It seems that she has already chosen her target...

Maeda has announced privately that she’s on the look out for a cute boyfriend, and she’s not particularly picky about who to date either, from hot actors to comedians and also Johnny’s idols.

A comedian insider said, “Johnny’s better watch out. She already has the numbers of some members from group K (Kis-My-Ft2, KAT-TUN, Kinki Kids, Kanjani8), A (Arashi), and N (NEWS, NYC). She has also shown interests in some comedians. She’s good friends with London Boots’ Atsushi and asked him to introduce her to some comedians from the Yoshimoto Agency. She has also starred in many projects with handsome actors. They should watch out too.”

arashi fans get pissed at 2ch netizens



Were 2ch users trying to make Aiba have a lung collapse? That’s what many Japanese Arashi fans thought on March 14th, the day when Arashi’s Aiba Masaki made appearances on several Nippon Terebi shows, promoting his new drama “Mineko Holmes Suiri”. A TV special was also held, entitled “Only Tonight! Saturday’s Aiba-chan!? A Impossible Gag Live! National Voting SP”, in which TV viewers could vote on the internet or by phone for an impossible gag they wanted Aiba to do, which was to be carried out at the end of “Arashi ni Shiyagare!”

I'm still trying to figure out people thought eating wasabi rolls = lung collapse though.

Covers and tracklisting for Kim Hyun Joong's latest single "HEAT" has been earlier reported. JRock duo - B'z - composed and arranged the music for "HEAT".

Compared to past Kim Hyun Joong's PV, which are more pop than rock, the Hallyu star gives his fans a treat by becoming a full-fledged rock star in the PV. A mini-concert is set in the PV with Hyun Joong acting as the vocalist of a rock band.

"HEAT" will be released on July 4th.

Now, PV is out!.. check it below

Power of Rainbow! Tokyo Rainbow Pride 2012



This theme for the first Tokyo Rainbow Pride is the Power of Rainbow.

What does that mean?
The rainbow symbolises diversity and individuality. We believe that a society in which LGBT people can live comfortably is a society in which everyone is entitled to personal freedom and the pursuit of happiness. A Pride parade is an explosion of individuality and a symbol of a society blessed with diversity. We feel that if we resist giving into social pressure, we can’t be trapped by heteronormative convention. By celebrating diversity, we can create a society in which not just the LGBT community but each and every person is proud of who they are.
