Arama They Didn't

12:43 pm - 11/28/2012

Julie Keiko Fujishima will be the next President of Johnny & Associates!?

(pic was taken several years ago)

On Nov 26, the artist lineup for the 63rd NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen has been announced.  With the addition of Kanjani8 to Kohaku along with SMAP, TOKIO, Arashi and NYC, a pattern of who is in control has been established.

Kis-My-ft2 and Sexy Zone are the 2 newly debuted groups last year but it's Kanjani8 who celebrated their 8th anniversary this year that had a very busy and successful year with concerts, dramas, Eight Ranger movie, CD releases, TV shows.

The crescendo success of Kanjani8 is credited to Julie Keiko Fujishima, currently Vice President but is now seen as the future President of J&A.  TOKIO and Arashi are groups that are under Julie faction and this year Kanjani8 has joined Julie faction also.

Ever since the beginning of the year,  Kanjani 8 and Arashi have been linked together in TV shows and magazine appearances, this year end Kohaku event is to cap off a successful year.  (weekly entertainment reporter).

However, it is unusual for NHK to invite that many Johnny's groups to attend Kohaku.  Arashi is the host so their appearance is a must.  Low sales TOKIO should be cut but they're still there.  SMAP is under Iijima's faction.  NYC is under Johnny Kitagawa.  And now, Kanjani8 has been added to the lineup with the other 4.

Three of the 5 groups who will be participatimg are under Julie's faction. It's just to show Julie is certainly in charge of a new system in Johnny's.

Kanjani are so popular anymore, it would be unnatural not to invite them. I think what the article is claiming is a stretch. Let's not forget that it's only last year that Iijima started managing other groups besides SMAP.

But they really need to stop with the inner faction wars situation in this agency. It's utterly meaningless and only limits both sides. Besides, neither Julie nor Iijima are fit to take over imho. Not on their own anyway.

this HBIC...

Whatever, J&A will not be the same without that creepy old man at the helm. He has an eye for talent which she doesn't have. She only knows how to manage them. She's not producing the stage shows hands-on like Johnny does (ugh)

btw, Julie looks like a high school girl in that pic..XDDD

*yawn* Wake me up when we get an official announcement. Otherwise, not interested in rumours.

Also, pairing K8 and Arashi together just makes sense. They are both loved for their friendship and goofy antics, and they're friends anyways. What better way to get ratings than to put them together?

Eito have been very active and successful this year so it's only logical that they were invited imo

And they have great chemistry with Arashi so them being on show together should happend ALL THE TIME

This.I love when they are together!!

I feel like twice a month we have a back on forth on the future head of J&A. Call me when there's an actual decision. I also thought they would do something special considering it's the agency's 50th anniversary this year.
dori_liv 28th-Nov-2012 09:41 pm (UTC)
This year is the anniversary?
Maybe Johnny's World is part of the celebration for that. Although I am surprised nothings actually been said/they haven't made more of a big deal out of the fact it's their 5oth anniversary
natkame 28th-Nov-2012 09:12 pm (UTC)
D: really??
izumi_ixa 28th-Nov-2012 09:32 pm (UTC)
The truth is I'm not sure if I prefer Johnny's or Keiko's system ¬_¬ (or neither xD).
We'll see the results at the time (if there is) when She gets to be the head of JE ...

Of course it proves everything....give me a break....every year, it's the same article....and after that, it's the article about the "war" between SMAP and Arashi managers....
lanysakurai 28th-Nov-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
Dont know who's better but she's a doing a good job so I'm not worried if its true.
Although I 'kinda' like Johnny cause he defended the boys when silly scandals happened.
citrine047 28th-Nov-2012 10:27 pm (UTC)
kinda OT but, Julie should really bring back more attention towards KAT-TUN. just saying.

Seriously, they've grown up so much as a group.
dorkylifestyle 28th-Nov-2012 10:27 pm (UTC)
Is just a rumor huh... >_> let me know when it's official, thanks

Factions, factions, factions. Sound like a House War.
