Sexy Zone Fans Annoyed Over Latest Jacket Covers


Looks like unfair treatment among members isn’t limited to Kis-My-Ft2, Sexy Zone fans are now enraged over the jacket covers released for the groups 4th single, “Real Sexy! BAD BOYS“.

As reported,

The said treatment inequality started last summer and with the recent jacket cover release, some fans who have made a reservation wanted to cancel after seeing the cover.

Sexy Zone’s upcoming single will be available in 6 editions (3 LE, 1 RE, 1 Venue LE, and 1 Shop Version). However, in those versions, Limited Edition B & C only has three members on the cover- Nakajima Kento, Sato Shori, and Kikuchi Fuma. While in the other versions, the three are obviously placed in the center while fellow members, Marius Yo and Matsushima Sou, were relegated at the background together with the featured Johnny’s Jrs.

Even though this is Sexy Zone’s single, not one jacket cover has the 5 members only. Moreover, Nakajima, Shori, and Kikuchi got more exposure for BAD BOYS while Marius and Matsushima were made to blend with the rest of the Juniors.

“I know that Johnny wants to put the juniors in the market but I really don’t understand what the office is doing,” according to one Sexy Zone female fan.

While the Juniors exposure may delight some fans, fans of Marius and Matsushima aren’t particularly pleased. Moreover, Matsushima’s absence during Sexy Zone’s 1st day of National Tour last Mar 26th became a hot topic and no explanation was given by the office.

Fans could only hope that Sexy Zone will continue their activities this year with all 5 members.

As KisuMai-fan I have to admit... those covers are way worse than the KisuMai-ones D: I actually was pretty shocked when I saw them right now for the first time.

They are much worse than kisumai ....
I mean a cover without all active members should never been done!

Oh believe me, the situation is in some things worse.

Among other things,in the Limited B ( which had me rage), there is a footage /Making of of the three older boys when they went all together to NYC

Nothing about the two youngest.

On PV, they still get more screentime than SMY2 ( and way way more than Nika and Watta) but their new one, from the short version we got already, they sure got less screentime than usual ( and are being put with the Sexy Boys the Junior subunit they used to be from)
