A.B.C-Z will get their own stage show next February and possible CD debut

Johnny’s Jr. group A.B.C-Z will get their own stage show in Tokyo next year, it was announced at the group’s concert in Tokyo on November 6, reports Chunichi Sports and TV Asahi.

The group’s two concerts in Tokyo had attracted 26,000 fans, and it has been reported Johnny’s & Associates president Johnny Kitagawa was optimistic with the group’s future activities next year, including a possible CD debut.

“I know I have to let them soar high one day,” he said.

 The title of their upcoming stage show will be “ABC座 日生公演 (ABC-Za Star Kouen)”.  Although the “日生” in the show’s title is actually pronounced  ”Nissay”, as in the name of the show’s theatre, “日生劇場 (Nissay Theatre)”, Mr Kitagawa had said that in the show’s title is a play on the kanji characters “日 (Ni)” and “生 (say)”, which combined, create the kanji character for “星 (Star)”, and hence the name, “Star Kouen or Star Performance”.  The show will have a story, as well as several show time performances.

 Producers of the show have said the group showed promising talent and knowledge, and hoped A.B.C-Z would one day perform under the brightest spotlight.

 A.B.C-Z’s Fumito Kawai had said the group were ready for the challenge.

“We can use our bodies to create a show any type of venue.  I don’t think there are many groups who can show as much variety [as us] in their performances.  I hope to show something different than what I do at concerts.  To have the Nissay Theatre to ourselves puts a lot of pressure on us, but it’ll be a good experience.  I want to surprise people,” he said.

 Kawai also commented on how he felt seeing fellow Johnny’s Jr. members in Kis-My-Ft2 and Sexy Zone making their professional debut this year.

“We do want to release CDs.  I hope we can catch up to, and surpass them,” he said.

ABC(-Z) have been around for 10 years, I'd say they deserve more to debut than Sexy Zone. ==

Okay, so ... I'm guessing they deserve this, I know nothing about them so I can't really say anything about this.

But really - what is Johnny trying to do here?
Debute every single Junior before he dies? Seriously?
How many more groups are going to debute this year??

ABC are waiting before Kis-my-ft2, since 2001 and there was no debuts in Johnny's between 2007 and 2011...
The number of debuts from the same agence is not limited, there is no quotas or something ;)

I have no words. I can just start screaming and smashing my keyboard.
I just hope it's true.

I don't really get this new Sexy Zone group, I prefer A.B.C-Z and I hope that it's true, they're second Arashi for me <3

And someone from Kansai Jrs please!

Kansai Jrs should debut on their own as a group like K8 to be honest...Kansai hasn't had a proper debut since K8 in 2004! way to shaft the juniors...
