“JOHNNY’S World” stage show to be biggest Johnny’s-produced show yet

Hey! Say! JUMP, Sexy Zone, A.B.C-Z, Koichi Domoto (KinKi Kids), Hideaki Takizawa (Tackey & Tsubasa), Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN) are among the 100 cast members to be in the largest Johnny’s stage show starting in November, reports Sponichi Annex and Daily Sports Online.

It has been reported Guinness World Record-holding producer Johnny Kitagawa is making his largest show yet to celebrate his records for producing the most number of concerts and most number of No.1 singles in the world.

Set to be performed in Tokyo’s Imperial Garden Theater in November and December this year, “JOHNNY’S World” will feature Hey! Say! JUMP as the main characters.  They will be supported by other younger Johnny’s groups, as well as supporting talents including Koichi, Tackey, and Kamenashi.  The story looks at youngsters going on an adventure to find a utopia in outer space, but in the process they realise how special their home on Earth is.

“I want the younger juniors to take on what their seniors have already accomplished.  Maybe we’ll need Higashi (Noriyuki Higashiyama) to give them some advice,” Mr Kitagawa said.

Members from Kis-My-Ft2 will take turns every day as they also join the 100 or so Johnny’s talent cast.  Mostly all of the younger Johnny’s groups will take part in what is set to be the largest Johnny’s production to date.

Mr Kitagawa has said the show will feature a mash up of things seen in past stage shows like “PLAYZONE”, “SHOCK”, and “DREAM BOYS”.  These include flying stunts and water fountain sets.

“3D is in fashion right now, but I’m keen to test ’4D’ fragrance tricks,” he said.

It has been reported Mr Kitagawa has promised every minute of the show will be exciting, and although he has plans to send the show overseas, he wants to start in Japan, the country where he managed to set his two world records.

No Arashi, no Eito?

What is this?

Well Takizawa, Domoto and Kamenashi are attending, but... THE REST?

I'm disappointed Johnny.

The "overseas" part is quite interesting tho
berniechan 23rd-Mar-2012 02:49 am (UTC)
it'd be great if that happened.
I guess.
Although plans don't equate anything concrete happening.

Takizawa, Domoto and Kamenashi will only be attending occasionally. I think they will mostly work backstage. The show is clearly catered for the Juniors with HJS thrown in the mix to attract more attendance.

Where's the fun???

Of course no Arashi and Eito. What do you want them to do there whereas they almost never took part in "famous" Johnny's butai? ;)
I can see nothing to be disappointed of...

No interaction between Arashi/Eito and juniors = Disappointment.

;) You're very welcome

Seriously, did you read the entire article? It's about giving the younger ones a new stage, so they can mature.

*rolls eyes*

How come fans tend to think that their idols didn't go the same way the youngsters are going right now just because they didn't witness it? Arashi, Kanjani, they started out exactly like this. And if I dare say so, not one of them is a quality dancer, who could actually stand in a really professional play. But for Ohno, maybe, he's really quite good. Well, he used to practice with Yara, that's where his skill comes from. As for the rest - no dancers, Arashi and Kanjani alike. I remember Okura was in SHOCK 2008 and they even played a sketch on how he was the "not dancer" among them. XD Please note, I'm talking about REAL dancers here, who will know what CBMP means and how to use it, what the difference between "step" and "walk" is, what a shoulder lead is good for and how many parts of your torso you can move singularly. Sadly, most of the people who do know this stuff never get their own plays. In this respect, I really believe that this play will absolutely do its job, giving young talents an opportunity to shine.

Personally, I have high hopes for Nakajima - although he's gronw really tall, which is a disadvantage. And you never know what they might grow up to be. They're still young and developing their skills, so I'm actually really looking forward to this. :D

Duuude chill out, I'm not against them okay?

You sound upset just because I said that. Calm down a bit, take a chill pill, then come back. And of course I read the whole article, I just think it could have been more interesting *TO ME* to watch some Arashi/Eito interaction with the Juniors.

Dafuq with ppl these days.

MTE. What the fuck????

I'm sorry if I misinterpreted, but you made it sound a lot like the entire thing is no good without the groups you named.

I'm sorry if I'm being a bit blunt. It's just that I have noticed that it's mainly fans of certain groups who will complain when their idols do not participate in certain projects. That's what unsettles me a bit. Instead of being grateful that your favourites already have a lot of things to share, there's always just bitching when they're not involved. Please, think of the fans of the ones who do not have regular TV Shows, Lives and stage plays. They are fans who like to see and follow their idols just as much as you do with yours.

I've never seen fans of e.g. TOKIO, V6, or NewS acting this way. It's just... a bit annoying.

I also want to say that I didn't write in anger. On the contrary, you seem to be the one who's pretty worked up over me stating facts. XD
ninomiy4r4shi 25th-Mar-2012 06:41 am (UTC)
Yeah, I get your point. But it's also your fault, judging every single person in the fandom the same way.

But let's keep it cool and root for the juniors!
