I kind of saw it coming. Got a friend who's madly fan of NEWS and she's been complaining for over a year on how the group was being pushed back... I guess the recent rise of Kanjani didn't help at all, and YamaPi kind of looks like he didn't want to be in there anymore...

I guess those rumors that were posted a few days ago, were concerning to NEWS.

I am not surprised, sad because they were the first Johnnys I liked, but that's it. It was also a given that if one of those two decided to leave the other would leave, too. What I don't understand is why people are so keen on finding a scapegoat.
In any case, I wish them all to succeed in their now separate careers.

I totally agree with you! On every point.
Are you on right now?

i really really hope that yamapi won't follow jin's steps and go to america because seriously dude IT WONT' WORK! he's overly rated actor and not even that good of a singer! and no, I don't hate him i actually like and yamapi is one of the reasons i got into Johnys ^^

i wasn't as emotionally invested in them as i used to be and i think we all saw it coming but this still sucks. news was like the first johnnys group i got really familiar with apart from kinki kids. i'll always be fond of them.

i will forever take delight in saying happy bathday.

Didn`t really follow NEWS all that much, but hurting for the fans all the same. Unfortunately nothing really surprising here. :|
nlovers 7th-Oct-2011 01:51 pm (UTC) many delusional fangirls blaming JE in here and over at news community....

those who said that yamapi and nishikido are happy with news are clearly blind or deeply in denial...

And so it comes true.

I don't know Yamapi's statement, but in Ryo's, he said he made decision because of scheduling issues that weren't up to him to solve, and he felt sorry that the groups had to adjust CD releases and tour dates because of him.

if it is ryo,it is still understandable, he already done a very good job from balancing his activities in both group,plus his solo activities...but yamapi...seriously,speechless...what happen to his promise, to not leaving news?
pistachu 7th-Oct-2011 01:57 pm (UTC)
everyone saw this coming, but still... THIS SUCKS.

And I'm guessig that 4nin NEWS will probably be Tegomass activities only + KoyaShige on hiatus forever ಠ_ಠ
gosh, this is even more depressing than Jin leaving KT.
